Maths Time Joy recently came forth with an outstanding EP, Hideaway, which he released late 2012 via Live for the Funk. During the production process, the London-based artist didn’t exactly have access to a solid pair of speakers. Thus, the three-track record was produced almost entirely on headphones and Tim Worthington likes it that way- he finds it easier to become immersed in his music.
In his follow-up to the EP, a remix for the seven-piece ensemble Submotion Orchestra, we see Maths Time Joy experimenting with soundscapes similar to those that we heard in Hideaway. Worthington transforms the relatively bass-heavy original into something more delicate. Leaving Ruby Wood’s vocal performance relatively untouched, he allows her warm serenade to soar above his silky synths and percussive intricacies.
New Jersey Native, Jaw Jam, contorts luscious R&B samples and dresses them overtop of precisely broken rhythmic patterns. Our friends down at Live For The Funk utilized this 19-year old talent as LFTF001; the first ever release through the collective’s Our Sounds initiative. The EP is cleverly titled, Untitled, as it is difficult to place an underlying theme in the bouquet of tracks, rising and falling as a good narrative should. Lying confidently at the EP’s close is a remix of Jaw Jam’s single, Untitled, crafted by esteemed Brookyln beat-smith, Obey City.
Jaw Jam’s Untitled EP is an eloquent collection of tasteful music that absolutely belongs in your digital collection.

Baauer is a 22 year old Brooklyn born, future crunk producer. About eight years ago, he started out producing house and electro tunes but gradually combined his love of hip-hop instrumentals with the energy of house music. With both hip-hop and house genres at his disposal, he has developed a near perfect formula comprised of crunk-dripped, lex luger hi-hats and the obvious essential component: bass. The following songs come highly recommended by TNGHT (Hudson Mohawe & Lunice) and Rustie, .
“Sheer trap-drenched tracks with otherworldly sounds and spine-chilling bass-isms that make you want to shout in your deepest DJ-drop voice, ‘Damn son, where’d you find this??’”
Frank Ocean runs us through the arithmetic of romance with punchy synths and his hallmark falsetto; yet another throw away tune from his healthy stash of unreleased material.
