New Music Highlights – 29th of September 2017: Klockworks 20, In the Twilight, These Rocks Have Teeth, Lui Peng


Dear friends,

Here at finetunes we pride ourselves in releasing the highest quality releases. If you want to stay in the know? Just stay tuned! Impress your friends by introducing them to some of the best new music out there each week.

So let’s begin,

Ben Klock’s Klockworks series can trace its beginnings all the way back to 2012. It has featured a host of respectable compilation compilers including DVS1 (K 05), Etapp Kyle (K 10) and Heiko Laux (K 17). Klockworks 20 is the newest instalment; busting with dance floor ready goodies, ranging from acid and house to deep climatic atmospheres.

Continuing the compilations theme we have a latest offering from the Pelagic Records universe; it’s an opportunity for fans of the rock and metal genres to further educate themselves with some of the best music these genres have to offer. It’s a massive 85 track release, curated in a very deliberate way to be listened to start to finish playlist style.

You might on the other hand be looking to slow down the mood a little and add some calming vibes to this weekend’s proceedings. For that you are going to want to introduce yourself to Lui Peng and his Demons EP. An artist who took the initiative to release his recordings through soundcloud and Youtube; making a name for himself with his unique acoustic pop song covers.

See more and listen to even more below.
