Our latest installment of THIS SIDE features a dozen homegrown releases currently on our radar, with the latest volume ideal for quieter nights. Filled to the brim with electronic cuts, ranging from ambient to industrial, as well as downtempo and jazzy R&B, there’s a little bit of everything to discover, or rediscover—as always.
THIS SIDE: VOL.4 includes notable tracks from new favorites, Mazerboy and Noa Mal; a timeless single from Dicta License and a standout new song from Ciudad’s 25th anniversary(!) effort, Ciudad Forever, Vol.1; a classic study in scratching from none other than LA-based legendary DJ D-Styles, and fairly recent releases from One Click Straight, BABYBLUE, WWW (from No Face Records’ late 2019 compilation album, 0UTLIER), Alisson Shore, Asch, and SERRO.
Stream THIS SIDE and follow the playlist for regularly updated new finds from Filipino musicians. The playlist is refreshed with each new volume, so make sure you save your favorites!
