Speaking of fire mixtapes, we found one. Fresh from blank body, who sounds like a combination of UZ and Dorian Concept, this EXPLICIT DELUXE mixtape features ten of his/her latest tunes to showcase their sound and project, which is labeled as “Account 1812922″ and “@74341952″ on SoundCloud and Twitter, respectively. I say “his/her” because there is really nothing on their account to indicate gender, or little more than “here’s music/here’s tweets”. All I know is blank body’s sound is a refreshing take on contemporary electronic-focused trap music. I’m excited to announce blank body as the next up & coming artist to watch with their latest mixtape. - Nest HQ


First off you know you made a banger when you can fit a steel drum in. Blank Body’s “HIGHRISE” is what it feels like to be jumping from 40 stories up; you’re climbing up the stairs during those beginning chimes then as the drums hit you start to realize what you’re doing, every things getting more and more extreme and your head is rushing, finally at the 1:30 mark you jump, fully embracing your choice now, there is no going back. Let the beat engulf you and make you start cooking some shit up, there really is nothing else quite as appropriate to do while listening. - 1833


Blank Body caught our collective eye a while back under the name of Bine, and his work has left us transfixed ever since. His productions frequently range from beautiful all the way to apocalyptic, with his signature sound covering both ends of the spectrum without ever losing any sense of its distinct character. His latest album, EXPLICIT DELUXE, is a prime example of what he’s capable of producing.

The 33-minute-long release stands as his strongest body of work to date, utilizing his chunky bass, serene melodies, and audacious percussion to create one of 2015’s most impressive releases so far. Each track is a pristine showcase of his talents and singular aesthetic, proving from the opening track alone why he’s one of the most exciting producers working today. - Pigeons and Planes


[formerly under the name bine☃]

Metallic timbres are also a key element in the sound of US producer bine☃ (the snowman in the moniker reflecting a certain chilly quality in her/his music), whose two recent Bandcamp albums, IT HURTS 2 INHALE and THINGS WILL BE BETTER FROM NOW ON offer a particularly accomplished mix of icy hooks, bracing synth, robotic drum machines and tantalising luxury vistas. IT HURTS 2 INHALE's cover features a particularly drab grey image of an escalator and a glitzy ceiling, while THINGS WILL BE BETTER has an equally drab picture of a fancy necklace in a store window and the reflection of the mesmerised photographer. But while the sublime qualities of bine☃'s music are neither warm or particularly human-scale, they're not entirely negative. Rather, it achieves something more beguiling, building a new sonic vocabulary of hi-tech spaces that are as genuinely seductive as they are cold and impersonal—like the lifestyles of the super-rich, perhaps. [...] Metal is the stuff of bullets, tanks and drones. Now it’s what beats are made of too.
There are metallophones in "WATCH ME" and "GET 2 U" on THINGS WILL BE BETTER and track 9 of IT HURTS 2 INHALE. There are a range of metallophones to explore, and bine☃ uses the smaller glockenspiel (see also tracks "13" and "14" on SUKI GIRLZ), a gamelan in "3" and "CHANGED." - The FADER
