Fengir’s 2014 Highlights Mix

A mix made up of tracks from the best releases of 2014 to appear on Fengir‘s radar.

Rhythmus Records Presents… [rr001]

A new label emerges from the Boston lofi/chiptune/skweee scene, headed by Scott Buchanan, a.k.a. Radio Skotvoid. The first release on Rhythmus Records, [rr001] furthers the mandate of Skotvoid’s Aces compilation (RSVP Tapes), building bridges between groups of producers around the world and finding common ground among musical styles ranging from modern hip hop and r&b beats to synth funk, 8-bit/lo-fi and experimental sounds. The result is a strong first release from a promising imprint that is crafting a cohesive aesthetic out of disparate musical sources – the hallmark of an inspired record label.
