Scottish producer Rustie has been at the forefront of the new wave of Warp Records for a few years now, ever since the release of his dazzling masterpiece Glass Swords. If last year’s Green Language did not live up to the dizzying heights of its predecessor, it still produced a couple of absolute bangers in the shape of “Raptor” and Rustie’s Danny Brown collaboration “Attak.”

It really isn’t all that long in the grand scheme of things, but when you look at the kind of work that goes into putting together a band from the ground up, keeping one functioning for seven years can feel like a lifetime. Starting a project, working with another few members, writing an album’s worth of music, preparing to release it, promoting it, creating a social media strategy…these are things that most businesses have teams working on. Geographer did it all themselves.

Try to envision what driving down the PCH would be like with no destination in mind, cushioned comfortably by the leather seats of your vintage convertible, roof unhinged, and nothing but an overstuffed suitcase in the passenger seat. Now imagine yourself doing all that…in the ‘70s. That’s what listening to Allah-Las feels like.

Way, way back in the day when I was a little too interested in Japanese culture, I stumbled across Miyavi. His single “Pop is Dead” was a rebellious, spastic piece of work that captured what I loved about visual-kei and J-Rock. But, oh, how times have changed.

Dillon Francis

LA’s Dillon Francis stands out from your average producer as he is the whole package — five personalities and all. If you aren’t familiar with this dude, he is a multi-genre producer whose style ranges from moombahton to electro-house. His debut album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule, just came out via Columbia Records and has reached #2 on Billboard’s US Dance/Electronic Albums list. Prior to the LP, Francis had released a lengthly list of official remixes, most recently for Deadmau5’s “Some Chords.” The man is a big deal.

Alex Clare LEAD

In 2012, Alex Clare’s debut album, The Lateness of the Hour, received a US release, and I found myself completely hooked on the singer-songwriter’s soulful take on electronica. Like his fellow Brit Ellie Goulding, Clare’s emotional vocals offer a stirring counterbalance to his electronic music, which draws from elements of drum & bass and dubstep. The final product is both grounded and otherworldly, a stunning debut from a promising young artist.
