Back in 2013, electronic producers Fatima Al Qadiri, Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda of Nguzunguzu and Lit City Trax's J-Cush formed the collaborative project Future Brown, and now they're set to release their self-titled debut album on February 24 via Warp. The album features previously released singles "Talkin Bandz" and "Wanna Party," as well as brand new single, "Room 502," the latter two of which feature Chicago rapper/singer Tink. The group's forward thinking production and Tink's vocals are a perfect match, as you can hear for yourself below. The album also features Kelela, Ian Isiah, Sicko Mobb and others. Tracklist below as well.
Tink's been working with other interesting collaborators lately too, including Sleigh Bells on the song "That Did It," and Kitty, Sasha Go Hard and Ryan Hemsworth on the song "Spotless." Stream both of those, with the Future Brown songs and tracklist, below...
The FADER always has some year-end coverage, but for the past 15 years they didn't publish a ranked year-end list. This year however, they ranked their 116 favorite songs of 2014 (find out why) and it's a diverse list that manages to sing the praises of iLoveMakonnen, Tinashe, Alex G, Florida Georgia Line, Enrique Iglesias, Bleachers, Ricky Eat Acid, YG, Toni Braxton & Babyface, Nothing, Grimes, Parquet Courts, Run the Jewels and Grouper all in the same damn list.

As mentioned, Adult Swim is back with their Singles Series, now in its fifth year, with a new free song to download every Monday during the summer. This year's lineup features exclusive tracks from Destruction Unit, Speedy Ortiz, Sleep, Deafheaven, Run the Jewels, Mastodon, Machinedrum and more. Full lineup and schedule of the Adult Swim 2014 Singles Series is below.
First up: synth legend and master arpeggiator Giorgio Moroder who will offer up "Moroder's Theme" on Monday (6/9). He's not aiming to reinvent his sound for the EDM world here, this is as classic sounding as it gets, very much in the style of "Chase" from Midnight Express. (It also kinda reminds me of Propaganda's "Dr. Mabuse" which owed more than a little to Moroder.) You can stream it now, and check out an Adult Swim interview with Giorgio, below.
Future Brown is a new collaborative project from Fatima Al Qadiri (aka Ayshay), Nguzunguzu, and Lit City Trax's J-Cush.

It's a day show, running from 4-7 PM. Tickets are on sale now. Flyer below.
Meanwhile, you can also catch Nguzunguzu playing their own show on December 13 at Glasslands. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
