Los Angeles based producer Spazzkid recently released Desire. The eclectic record pulls inspiration from traditional beat makers, post-dubstep and chillwave. While the album is self-recorded, mixed and mastered it manages to sound sophisticated while still maintaining the intimacy of a bedroom production.

There are many ways to use the Exfm Site Player. The most common way is to simply place it on your site and allow it to play all the MP3s, SoundCloud and Bandcamp embeds you’ve posted. But what if you don’t have any on your site? What if you want to load the player with songs from your Exfm profile?
The answer is actually simple. After creating an Exfm account and loving songs, simply add your Exfm username to the player script. Adding your username to the script will allow the player to load the songs from your Exfm profile directly. Visitors will then have a bunch of sweet jams to listen to as they browse your site.
Edit your Site Player script to look like this:
You can grab our Site Player here.

Janelle Monáe is back with a soulful new track and it feels so good! Her new single “Q.U.E.E.N” features none other than Erykah Badu. We can only hope that that they plan to collaborate on more than one track. We also have a new one from Montreal’s Solar Year, who seem to be channeling one of our all time favorites Fever Ray.Q.U.E.E.N. (Feat. Erykah Badu) by Janelle Monáe (via fvckelite.com)
Last year, at London’s award winning architectural masterpiece known as the Rave (pictured above) marked the launch of Music Tech Fest. The Fest launched with 55 performers and presenters, 77 creatives, 75 hackers and over 700 live-streaming viewers from over 40 countries, with 1,000 people in attendance.
This year we’ll be crossing the pond to present exfm, participate in the 24 hour 3D hack camp and chat about our favorite topics music and technology. You can register for free and take a look back at some of last year’s presenters over on their YouTube channel.
They’ve also created this fun album art project. So far people have recreated iconic album art with everything from spaghetti to matches. To participate post your creations to Twitter/Instagram using #MakeMusicWithAnything. The best will be then used in this year’s Music Tech Fest poster. Good luck!
