There's something to be said about the Toronto music scene. Social media has paved the way for influencors to inspire through their passion, sound and aesthetic. As a result, communities are growing and evolving from the digital world, and a serious mark IRL city culture is being made in the process. Electronic music, in particular, is as experimental as ever. Recently, I read a tweet from Toronto-based producer, Pusher, who described this process from the root of influence. He said,

"The answer to any questions you could ever have about music are contained within the music itself, your goal should be training yourself to look for them. Making your own meaning out of what you hear is how you become yourself and form your art.

The thing about future beats, is that it's a relatively new sound. Figures like Drake and The Weeknd have buttered up the six for a slew of slow-tempo, heavily hip-hop influenced sounds layered with deep, sexy baselines, hypnotic vocal samples and jazz-inspired beats. The thing is, is that Exhume Music has noted a void.

You may recall our feature on Exhume Music's first compilation, About You. To jog your memory, Exhume Music is a collective that seeks to shine light on worldwide underground sounds. The collective houses a roster of budding producers that are hungry to create and inspire. Cue compilation numero deux, About You Pt. 2.  About You Pt. 2 is the second installment from the Exhume fam -- it's a progression of sound that carries through from the first mix, like a story. As the compilation evolves, as does the allure of the future beats sound profile. Here are three tracks from About You Pt. 2 that will let you to vibe out in a perfect intergalactic world - as told by founder, Adam Bosley:

vbnd - Tell Me Why

"If you're unfamiliar to one of the newest editions to the Exhume roster, vbnd - this is a telling introduction to what you've been missing out on. For his latest release, Tell Me Why, vbnd orchestrates a minimalist yet complex track. From the start, you can hear the harmony and soul that vbnd is known for through the simple vocal samples used. As the track progresses, vbnd's confidence is apparent - from a simple drum kick, to synth plucks, deep bass lines and pauses - each element has you begging for the beat to come back, and vbnd exemplifies what the future has to hold for this newly developing genre. Tell Me Why is a short sample of vbnd's simple yet complex production style."

Ateller - Astromore

"Originally made for his live set, Ateller creates a beat which is more of a journey through dynamic sounds and samples, and not limiting to a loop/repetition. Accomplishing this with ease, Ateller smoothly transitions from start to finish using multiple vocal samples, 808s, deep bass and a synth sampled from fallingfalling.com. While singing along to Childish Gambino's 3005, you easily get sucked into vibing to a familiar yet unfamiliar sound."  

The 25Th Hr - ID

"Progressive jazz fusion, with a lofty tone, blended with a three six mafia and an eloquent no limit vibe. 90's synthesizer tones in a future music space with constantly evolving instrumentation and ambiance. Sit back, relax and vibe." 

About You Pt. 2 is available for free download on Soundcloud. Stay tuned for more from Exhume Music
