Know how sometimes you get that feeling ... like all you want to do is dance your ass off? Like, forget about the crowd and scene and throwing trap arms, and just effing dance! I feel like that right now, and y'all that's exactly what we're gonna do Friday Feb 03 at Mezzanine in San Francisco! Lady Mezzanine and I are stoked to welcome techno/deep house producer Sharam for a special extended set! There's going to be so much dancing happening, it's going to be bananas fun! Tickets are on sale now and you can swoop them HERE!
Oh man am I excited to show you guys this new new from NoMBe. I'm having a long week already, and it's chill af tracks like this that keep my head on straight. Noah aka NoMBe has been steadily building a succulently soulful body of work, and I can tell you he's got some tracks upcoming that are fire as well. I got the chance to meet this dude over the weekend and he's the real deal. But don't take my word for it, hit play and dive in! Be sure to add this one to your fave chill-out playlist on spotify here.
Of course the day my bestie STéLOUSE drops this fire I had a family emergency ... usually I am harassing him and his management/my boyfriends to be the first one to post tracks or get that premiere! So today I am playing catch up with one of the most bad ass and influential artists I have come across in quite some time. Before I knew STéLOUSE, a friend of mine and I used to take long drives and play every track we could find by this Denver producer and nerd/fangirl out. While I'm sure he finds this very amusing, seeing as how we're now bosom buddies, but I'll never claim to be anything but a music lover and a fan -- these artists breathe life and meaning into my world, I'm nothing w/o them. STéLOUSE releases his new single "Lovers ft. Brave" and once again he strikes the awesome chord! Taking a more pop approach, this new one is complete with sexy dance floor groove and delicious future pop flavor ... STéLOUSE can do no wrong!
Brooklyn's T4PES & Nick AM team up to retune A Tribe Called Quest's, "Electric Relaxation", giving the classic track a upbeat, dance- floor-ready vibe. The two producers ratchet up the tempo and drop in a driving, heavy bass line that gives the song more spring in its step, bringing to mind early Kayranada remixes of Mos Def and Common. Make sure to snag a download of the track HERE! Swing by T4PES & Nick AM's soundclouds for more of their music.
I'm a bit late getting to this new one from Boehm, but it's already been putting up some big numbers on spotify with almost 800,000 plays since it's release. Sparking 2017 off right, this hybrid tropical house and pop tune features an assortment of bells, and xylophones, infectious vocal warping and a spritely rhythm section. You know Brandyn Burnette's gonna provide some excellent top line so what's not to like about this hopeful tune "Let's Give It a shot!" You can stream on Spotify here.
Get ready for an afternoon delight with our next premiere, a sweet soothing jam from UK transplant Suave. This young self taught pianist and producer now calls Cincinnati home, and today he releases his latest track "Take Me Under ft. Miranda Gulasy" via PRMD, and it's oh so very delicious! This chill electro pop vibe mixed with angelic vocals is giving us all the feels with sweet melodies and glitchy future beats - it sets a beautiful sad mood with heartbreaking warm thoughts of love ... sigh! You can grab a free download HERE!
The bass pumping Aussies Slumberjack have given us their first track of 2017 and damn it's a really good one. "Fracture" is an emotionally charged combo of world beats, gripping sweeping synths, and of course bombastic bass. Vera Blue's longing vocals take this tune to another level as the guys tight rope walk a perfect line between a hard hitting hype anthem, and an emotional roller coaster. The effect is a really beautiful tune that's ready to launch. Out from Mad Decent you can stream this on your preferred digital retailer here.
Honestly tho - this next premiere is pretty dope! Our loves over at Perfect Havoc just handed us another disco house heater, but I expect nothing less from our friends across the pond! Eat More Cake are a DJ/Production/ Songwriting collective from London creating some pretty awesome deep house jams that got me feeling some kind of way. "Heat Of The Night" is full of provocative deep disco vibes that will light up any dance floor. I've always wanted to be a part of a creative music collective, starting back with Prince and the NPG - I mean I really wanted to be part of the NPG ... always being seen together and belonging to something bigger than myself, creating music with other talented people and throwing parties. But .... I realize that I'm destin to be on my own, and actually the world is my collective, and I've become a little part of it all through Beautiful Buzzz - getting to spread the word about awesome collectives like Eat More Cake. This track drops worldwide Jan 20 - but you can grab an exclusive download via Beatport HERE!
Some mornings it's just easy to roll out of bed and have the perfect pick me up jam to enjoy with that first cup of coffee - and that totally just happened with this new Unlike Pluto remix of "Superstar ft. Krewella" by Pegboard Nerds & NGHTMRE. This Los Angeles producer never seems to let us down with his big sound and bouncy melodies, and he crushes this one with his boisterous dance flavor. Have a good morning!
