““I just watched the Fyre Fest doc,” George Clanton tells me backstage near the start of his own potentially madcap takeover of Brooklyn’s enormous three-room club Elsewhere with the world’s largest ever gathering of vaporwave artists. He doesn’t specify which of the two recent films on the infamous festival is fresh in his mind, but it’s working as a motivator.

A funky, noodling guitar riff forms the driving melody of this track, totally dowsing it with a mixture of disco and chillwave vibes. Meanwhile, buoyant synths and crisp digital beats complement the tapestry perfectly, allowing listeners to space out and slam-dance in equal measure. Furthermore, Surfing’s production is both hazily lo-fi as well as sleek and wavy, with a palette of sounds sure to get the club bouncing.

Pre-Order “EMOTION” here.
Aotearoa electronic whizz-kid Satin Sheets has re-emerged with a brand new clip for 'Montevideo', drawn from the artist's excellent debut album St. Francis, which just received a fancy 'Heatwave edition', orange-coloured vinyl reissue via the folks at US imprint 100% Electronica. Created by Rigo Lara, the video melds together the mesmerising single's sonics with hazy, sweat-inducing, hypnagogic imagery – which is highly appropriate as Satin Sheets is heading to Brooklyn, NY to play at next week's summer vaporwave extravaganza 100% ElectroniCON. Buzz out to 'Montevideo', and keep on the lookout for a new collection from Satin Sheets in the near future...
