The underground beat movement is less underground then it used to be. You could say that about most scenes with the advent of the internet, but the beats stands differently because it’s about a club-ready or a show-ready aesthetic. Though certain beatsmiths like Flying Lotus put on a hell of a show, the sound finds it’s home usually in the residential quarters. With that in mind, you need to check out submerse and his debut album, Slow Waves.

Slow Waves will be released via Project Mooncircle on Sunday, July 27. To mark our excitement for the project, we’ve got the album’s fourth track as an exclusive download for you. “VHS. chords” is a taste of submerse’s sleepy but warm sonic textures and snuggly video game beats. Snag this now and cop the LP when it drops.
