‘Submission Showcase’ is a weekly column where we go through songs submitted to us and showcase the best ones. If you’d like to submit music to us, find out how to here.

Glacci – Replica

Nottingham man(dem) Glacci has recently released his self-described, ‘genre-spanning’ EP Heaterz, Vol. 1, a release which basically takes influences and elements from multiple genres, such as Grime and garage, trap, et certera, et certera. Replica, a standout offering from this EP, is a track that mixes the square-wave synth pieces from old 00s grime tracks and adds elements of southern trap music, such as 808s and shuffled hats, to create a real dancey vibe. Very nice. Check it out below.

 

You-C – Root, Part Trés (Feat. KEL JVME$)

Produced by Fatir, Illinois em-cee You-C returns to our Submissions column with a new track to kick off the new year, Root, Pt. Trés. Featuring Kel Jvme$, this cut from C’s upcoming EP includes a sample-based trap-style beat, which forms the background as both rappers lay down some deep bars with a nice flow throughout. Take a listen below and look out for 7-0-Gr8 soon.

 

Jade The Moon – Beating In My Chest

Okay, so Toronto-based synth pop group Jade The Moon have been featured on here before, with their single ‘U Take Care’, the video to which is on YouTube now, but today they are back with Beating In My Chest, a cut I decided to feature from their new album Habits and Hindrance. The track seems to have taken some influence from Grimes’ Darkbloom record, as the rolling drums are very familiar, topped with a wonderful arpeggiated synth with some sweet vocals on top, before breaking into a nightime travel-montage beat. I mean that in a good way. It’s a great track. Listen below, and be sure to peep the rest of the album.
