Rooted in hip-hop and flared with pop, D.C. bred producer Chooky has been DJing and producing dance music since 2011. For his latest release he decided to flip Brandy’s 1994 debut release “I Wanna Be Down” into his own chipmunked-out edit that bounces with hints of R&B and soul influence. When speaking on his take on “I Wanna Be Down,” Chooky stated: ‘I have always loved Brandy, especially this record and when I stumbled across the acapella I couldn’t help myself.’ Welp – were glad you were reminded of this 90’s classic too. This bass-infused remix is up for Free Download and can be streamed below.
There’s always one kid at school who’s really good at singing. For us, this was Kwaye. Assemblies and productions were peppered with performances that showcased his raw talent; his abilities as a singer have always far outshone anyone his own age.
It’s a good thing for all of us, then, that he seems to have found his mojo with his new track ‘Cool Kids’. Fun, funky, and fresh, Kwaye’s distinct sound neatly combines disco, R&B and pop. Top this off with an outstanding vocal range; we can only hope there is more to come.
If JUCE can make it, there’s absolutely no reason why Kwaye can’t. Watch out for the name!
After a battle with soundcloud our show has finally been approved, we were a bit worried for a minute.
A continuation of our 100k plays celebration, this weeks show is packed full of good vibes! Our guest this week was Jed 104 who supplied a smooth coolout mix, make sure you follow on his soundcloud for more!

Just 17 years old, (they get younger every post I do), Pattyperk is a beat maker from L.A called Patrick Moon associated with BLVNT Records. His beats are way older than his years, and he has some amazing hip-hop vibes on his soundcloud, amongst other tracks dipping into whatever genre he fancies, it seems. Check out ‘Juice’, his latest collaboration track. Don’t sit on this guy! His stuff is really good, check out ‘Juice’ below and go and follow his sound cloud for fresh material, or as he calls it, ‘experimental elevator music’, every month.
Canadian producer Invention, part of the fantastic Kolossus Records Collective, is releasing an outstanding EP on the infamous and ever-growing Future Beats Records tomorrow. We can’t wait. Future Beats Records run by DJ Complexion and Yazbeatz is very quickly becoming THE place to release that future sound, so keep an eye out for many more special releases over the coming months. ‘Hallucinature’ will be a 4-track record of bass, beats and bruh! That sound is slick. Head over to Invention’s Soundcloud to listen to more of his stuff, and keep an eye out on the FBR twitter and FB feed for more information. Much love to the movement!
Hebinomichi, meaning ‘serpents path’, is a newly formed artist collective and label founded by Denver based producer StéLouse and Detroit’s future beat newcomer, ahh-ooh. Curating not only forward thinking electronic music, the collective is focused on building a complete sensory experience for their listeners by bringing together music and art on every project. For this month’s string of releases they are working exclusively with Alfred English, a digital artist who has been doing a handful of art for Mad Decent recently. Already boasting an impressive roster of experienced artists the likes of Pusher, Maxx Baer, Rusty Hook and more, you can expect to see several releases in the forthcoming months from this fresh new crew of electronic masterminds. Their forthcoming compilation Hebinomicihi Vol. 1 is set to release on November 5th. Below there is a quote from Alfred English on the artwork he created for the collective’s new single by JAWZ.
For Hebinomichi’s second release, JAWZ, aka Jake Keijzers [a 21 year old Producer from Sydney, Australia] unleashes “After Dark.” The record is a wavey new single that glides ever-so-smoothly from start to finish with some help from the perfectly simple yet captivating vocal sample, a powerful horn section, some spacey keys, and an overall dream-like demeanor. The lush vibes on “After Dark” by JAWZ are bound to turn some heads in Hebinomichi’s direction as if StéLouse & ahh-ooh’s collab “Sex Panther” hasn’t already rounded up enough buzz for the upcoming collective. This record is a Free Download.
“I picked up some real spacey vibes from the song listening to it and knew I wanted to start the art with some sort of galaxy or cosmos image, so I found an image from google and stylized it into that portal-esque sphere that is the focal point of the image. I choose a bit of a spacey color palette and added some other features to the image with the objective of creating more depth. I think the song is pretty deep with all of it’s reverb and that vocal sample floating elegantly through the track, so I tried to materialise that aural sensation through my use of color and object.” – Alfred English
