Moon King, the project of Daniel Benjamin, recently relocated from Toronto to Detroit, specifically to the neighborhood of Hamtramck. The move wasn’t just geographical, but also sonic. Hamtramck ’16 is a new tape from the artist, which finds him shifting completely away from his shoegaze-like past and full-on into dance music. And it’s really good dance music. Watch the visuals for lead single “In & Out”.
Listen to the whole thing below. You won’t regret it.
Chillwave has long since faded, but it’s interesting to see how the artists that defined that movement are redefining themselves today. Case in point, Millionyoung, the moniker of Miami producer Mike Diaz, returns with the new single “Rare Form”, a shimmering, dance-pop jam that at once feels both fresh and nostalgic. The single also serves as the title track from a forthcoming album, due later this year.
Once again, The Sky Report is co-presenting the annual Out In The Streets Music & Arts Festival. We couldn’t be more excited about the 2017 lineup, led by Brooklyn hometown heroes Caveman and legendary shoegaze band A Place To Bury Strangers. The bill also includes longtime TSR favorite Psychic Twin, the Puerto Rican chill salsa vibes of Buscabulla, NYC electro-pop outfit Crush Club, Argentinian garage rocker Tall Juan, Bogotá, Colombia electronic artist Ela Minus, Philadelphia dream pop band Suburban Living, buzzing new Brooklyn punk band Grim Streaker, and many more!
