Discoballistic



This is it! This is the Playmakers' gift for Xmas. We present to you the new EP from Discoballistic 'Tales of the Spirit Nandor'. A spirited release that sounds like a fantasy soundtrack of medieval wanders and wonders...

Taking a serious leap back in time, these deep -feeling winter- jams sound like a story being told by the fire. Not exactly the 1980s but invitational, infectious and fictitious dreamwave electro that follows the stars and sets the tone for undiscovered musical landscape journeys.

Listen or download the whole set of tunes here: http://soundcloud.com/discoballistic/sets/tales-of-the-spirit-nandor

Embryonik



This is seriously one of the weirdest, mysterious yet awesome songs/videos we seen/heard in a while. Embryonik brings us a twisted yet uplifting and never ending anthem of 'psycho disko' Mind-melting business that dances on the edge of acceptabilaty, humor and creepyness. Come on, there's even a mirrored image of a dog in front of a skyline on the cover, to illustrate the "out there" factor.

The release is out on Binalog Productions and is accompanied with some great remixes by long-time Playmaker-favorite 80s Stallone and a few others worth checking out. We're sharing with you the original remix fro free, go to you favorite online stores such as iTunes, to get the remixes!

Sweet Team Ft. Sly Dog



As outspoken enthousiasts of the Sweet Team, Playmaker has always been excited about this spacious acid rap from outer space. They just leaked a new and rather epic track from their up and coming mixtape that it invites you all the way into the Nebula.

Mitch Murder



Here's the third installment of the very interesting Rosso Corsa label, Mitch Murder's debut album Burning Chrome is here to melt some serious rubber.

Hailing from Stockholm, Mitch brings us a dreamy and fascinating album of neo-80s electro, in perfect balance with the elements of wavey soundscapes and deep synth work. It captures that spirit perfectly and is precisely programmed, almost sounding like a dedication to earlier era composers in the league of Vince DiCola and other greats.

Clean yet dark and uptight, that is the best way to discrib the awesome power this album displays. Here's 2 outstanding tunes for you to want more! So, be the fair player and go out there to support this release by getting the whole thing over at iTunes or a bunch of other online music stores.

La Zebra



You might have seen the name La Zebra passing by before you with one of their previous, rather epic, remixes they did for Matt & Kim. Now they have an EP ready full of awesome remixes in the French filter-funk-dunk style.

Cherie Lily & Aleister X



Two different yet remarkable artists drop their new EP today. Both on the same label... I'm talking about Andrew W.K.'s record label Steev Mike Records, putting forward some new, original and forward thinking performance music, hailing from New York City.



First up we have Cherie Lily, AWK band member, fitness guru and married to the rockstar himself, bringing forward a brand new genre she calls Houserobics. A blend of Cherie's daily fitness routines, mixed with highly exciting form of original house music you can find in the greatest night clubs in NYC. Her debut EP includes the original song plus 6 more remixes. The song is about working out, as "WERK" sets the tone to the aesthetic of what houserobics are all about. See the video below as Cherie explains you briefly what you are in for.






Then we have the dark yet impulsive Aleister X. An artist that we have featured here before for an in-depth interview. He drops his second EP, produced by Andrew W.K. who was also working on the Lee 'scratch' Perry record W.K. was producing last year. The Git EP is the follow up to his first EP 'Bangers and Beans' and sees the uncomfortable character shift through dark alleyways trying to find his way into the club looking if Terry and Malcolm are there. Take a look at Aleister X' debut video as he takes you on a ride from Kingston via Brixton to New York.



Both of the EP's have dropped today and Playmaker is pleased to offer 2 exclusive tracks for download. Find both of the releases on iTunes our othe digital outlets. The physical copies will soon be released via Cargo Records in the U.K.

Styrofoam



It's high tide and the waves of pulsating new electronics are washing away the trails of the ol' dry land... Wait... Where were we?!
Ah, dreaming away while listening to Styrofoam's new album 'Disco Synthesizers & Daily Tranquilizers'. Hey, that sorta rhymes and gives away the new direction of sound.

Another big step in the sound of Styrofoam, going from what could be discribed as 'indietronic' to a more electro pop approach... And with great succes, the album is gentle yet dirty, not greasy nor perverted and is exposing Styrofoam's great song writing skills allong with a slick and almost romantic, polished sound.

You can preview the whole album exclusively on his MySpace. And to make it all even more interesting we have the Juan MacLean remix of 'Get Smarter' for free download.

Näd Mika & The Metatron



Our good friend and Austria's team player The Metatron is back on the grid with a brand new and exclusive mix he did for the Näd Mika from Germany.

Näd Mika profiles themselves not just like any other band but rather see themselves as an evolving performance project ruled by some puppetmaster who remains somewhat 'in the dark'. Intresting, certainly when the music is good and exciting.

It could be Miss Kitten and The Hacker tuning juggalo, or the kids from Gene Simons trippin out on a rave for all we know. No matter what, they've got some catchy fidget tunes and remixes and Mr. The Metatron has stiched them nicely together. So, are you ready for a long and bassy ride? Let's go!

Well if this tune doesn't turn out to be a hit than we dunno anymore... Brilliant new solo single by the one and only Keith Masters, dancing somewhere along the lines of Kid Cudi and Kanye West.

Miami Nights 1984



Setting the pace for the imaginary soundtrack, Miami Nights 1984 is all about those days 'the vice' ruled the streets. When clubs were exclusive and money rained down from the sky with no limits, babes came naturally and cocktails were extra spiky!

Interesting enough, Miami Nights 1984 doesn't sound that pretentious at all, better yet, this is an integer approach with the mellow fellow attitude which makes all these songs easy-breezy and highly enjoyable.

Oh he's definitely the sunglasses wearing type who might be hard to recognise at first sight but hey, guess who's under these shades? It's ActRaiser yall. Cool dude ActRaiser cruisin his Rosso Corsa Lamborghini on the freeway of awesome music styles.

Please enjoy 2 tracks of the Early Summer album. It's Rosso Corsa's second official release, so grab it here on iTunes.

Power Glove, so good.

Please enjoy their 4 track EP "So Bad" right here.

Sonny Moore, Skrillex



There's something especially energetic and awesome about this music, Team Playmaker can't help but shake that feeling when those power metal vocals clash with electro beats. Let's start a band just like that! OK... So we've been into Bring Me The Horizon's remix album, especially into the killer remix Sonny Moore did for them. Moore, who also records as Skrillex has a great solo EP out now, check it here. Meanwhile enjoy these floor slammers!

Sweet Team



Beaming from outerspace and wading through dark alleyways and greasy backdoors, the Sweet Team are back with some killer tracks. Totally doped-out astro clown rap, pitch-tuned like a ghoul on acid scaring your mother in her sleep. Get the twisted picture? Here's 2 new tracks to make you shiver and pull the wool from your eyes. Dope stuff.

Lazerhawk vs. LexiconDon



Alright awesome. What's good people!?! We hope you all can bare with the ads on here courtesy of the MOG Music Network. The catch is that our posts now get exposed to a ton of more readers so in the end everyone wins. It's the way Playmaker is gonna roll for some time now but you can expect a revamping of the site soon. We'll make it more awesome than ever before, promise!

Meanwhile, we are gonna treat you with a brand new Lazerhawk remix for LexiconDon. Amazing tune floating with a breeze like an air mattress drifting somewhere offshore... It's really that feel you get, and that is a good feeling!

Twilight Racing



Brand new Twilight Racing, Team Vaillante's new shift into "Thrillgear" that sees him replace the name and focus of the Vaillante*** name on the title, rather than the project itself. All good we say, it leaves a bit more freedom for the character to develop, not being forced to wear the Vaillante*** mask all the time.

Check out "Thrillgear", a brand new song/theme that has a funky bassline with an even funkier synthesiser!

80s Stallone



Damn this music totally sets us in the right mood! It's kinda uplifting and hopeful, something only a Stallone from the eighties can do. Oh how we've missed you on our blog 80s Stallone! It's been far too long but our love stays true...

One of the founding members of team Rosso Corsa who's been working on his release under the radar is now showing us a peak of what we might expect of him in the near future. Check out Burn Out, a stellar tune that runs smooth through the night as if it was Sly himself behind the wheel.

Things are almost coming to a boiling point for Rosso Corsa and we can expect a bunch of new releases soon! Be sure Playmaker will be on the ball and inform you about all of them.
