The latest from Sally Shapiro is titled Somewhere Else. The music is super dreamy Dance Pop and Shapiros vocals are equally dreamy and irresistible. The tracks are very upbeat but smooth and will keep you on the dance floor all night.
Debut album from Mister Lies is titled Mowgli. The album is a mix of Downtempo Dance, Ambient Dance, and IDM with elements of Trip Hop. The album has an edge of mystery to it and the tracks have a very lush feel to them. This is a good chillout album and this artist has great potential.

Cyclopeans self-titled debut EP is a mix of Jazz and Ambient with various world cultural influences. The tracks are quirky and have an edge of experimentalism but are coherent and have good beat hooks. The four artists collaborating on this album Irmin Schmidt, Jaki Liebezeit, Jono Podmore, and Burnt Friedman are all veteran musicians (Schmidt and Liebezeit formed the art-rock band Can) and you can hear this in the music. This is a solid debut, where seasoned artists can play and experiment with music and produce something that is on the edge of far out yet sounds and feels polished.
RIYD: Brian Eno, Peter Namlook
Tracks: All Good
