/MZK/Jetson- Dylan Reider [Indie/chillwave/indiebeat]

Kiwi Soundcloud beat-maker Jetson puts together a tribute to late-skateboarder Dylan Reider. He samples somber ambient vibes and acoustic guitar pieces but flips the script with the mechanical thin Hip Hop percussions he's known for. I'd suggest you check out his other work too.

/MZK/ Da Vosk Docta [Witch/Future/Eurobass???]

Cool name is it not? The beat's cooler though. Don't know much about this Polish beatmaker except for the fact that he follows in the footsteps of european electronic beat-specialists like Yung Gud and Sherman. So in that way you can look at it as a sad-boy type of music. Lol.

/KPLUS/MZK/ Morgve- Adam's Raise (From New LP ' テロ42Ø ') [Witch House/Hardcore/Post-Punk/Goth/Industrial]

This is not a drill. The South American darkness duo Morgve​ have put out an LP that's rather hard to read:   テロ42Ø (yeah, good luck) through the label Phantasma Disques.

It's a noisy blend of witch house, acid house, hardcore and just enough splashes of 80s post-punk to give it a Sonic Youth-ish feel not usually found within this sub-culture.

Below is my favorite track off the record- 'Adam's Raise'. If it sparks interest I definitely recommend you click on the following link to check out the whole record through PD's bandcamp.

/VID/MZK VID/ True Widow- Theurgist [Post Punk/Stoner Metal/Psychedelic]

Hmm, I never thought I'd hear a mix of sub-genres done this way- Post-punk melodies drowned in sluggish distortion with a lead singer not sure if he's going for a decent Edward Bagshaw impression or a terrible Thurston Moore impression. Not exactly that far from a band like Fuzz or Wand but not close to it either. As if the aforementioned bands got into a rubber-less gangbang with Windhand. That's all I'll say. Check it out and let me know what you think.

/VID/MZK/ Isiah Rashad- Free Lunch [Hip Hop/Rap/Old School]

/MZK/VID: Greenday Have A New Song Out Called Bang Bang And It's Firing Blanks

I haven't listened to Greenday since I was 14 during a brief period where I pretended to be into them to see if I could make friends. Being a tall straight edge devout stinky muslim with mantits did not work for my cause as you can imagine. It was okay, I was more into the Hippity Hoppity and or the actual punk of the punk variety. So I wouldn't say I was ever Greenday's target demographic despite being in Greenday's target segment anyway.

Here's a memory: I remember being at a Virgin Megastore before local businessmen realised no one buys music. I was looking at two Asian girls in school uniform freaking out over the Greenday American Idiot C.D. with me standing behind hoping to any sort of god that a flood would wash them all away. Greenday, emo teenage girls et all.
