Tomorrow night San Francisco! Don't miss out on seeing this awesome artist BAIO! Some of you may be familiar with him as the bassist from Vampire Weekend, and his solo project is just as fun! 8pm at Rickshaw Stop - and this one is all ages! Go see live music!
Yess our favorite invisible producers Ghosts are back with an incredibly "Haunted" original that pushes and pulls, lights up and darkens, frightens and embraces all at the same time. Longing mysterious piano accompanies pumping bass and sparse percussion behind Josh Roa's supernatural vocals. The drop has depth and power in it's subtlety and leaves you wanting more. Tack another great release onto their growing catalogue. You can purchase "Haunted" on iTunes here.
This is a perfect track to get my Tuesday up and running. As smooth as ice, soulful, and catchy as hell this new record "Move Around Me" from Detroit's William Bolton just makes me wanna light up, forget anything I have to do today and cruise around town. Bri's vocals put me at ease and Willy B's verses pop like the nightly New York skyline. Vocally lead, the instrumental keeps the record billowing forward like puffs of smoke making room for the hooks to shine. I would recommend putting ears on some of the rest of his catalogue (check out "Rockstar" or "Rain in LA"). You can nab this as a free download here, and be looking out for his 'Love Supreme' EP or album, not sure, coming soon.
Our favorite deep house, pop crossover guru Lincoln Jesser is back with another fantastic release on Spinnin' Deep. "Time Will Tell (feat. Samuel Jacob)" is an upbeat piano driven tune with bongos, tambourine, slick melodies, and groovy deep bass. Samuel Jacob's vocals soar above this track with ease adding the finishing touches to a really sweet track! Get your groove on to this record on Spotify and Apple Music here.
I'm gonna chill things down for a second with a really cool (and cool named) track from Denmark's Dooqu & the UK's Ashdown. "Incompetent Competitions" is an intricate indie electronic record driven by Dooqu's wonderful half full half falsetto vocals. Jazzy piano fill in behind grooving percussion and quick wobbly synths. Smatterings of low bass filter in pumping with harpoon like efficiency. An eclectic lead sound provides some melody that all but wraps up this cool tune. You can nab this as a free download from Heroic Recordings here, and catch the whole 'Moods EP' out May 26th.
Oh hi LA - can you be any cooler rn? Honestly fam - shit is lit! This city, and my home town, is churning out the cream of the crop when it comes to the next generation of uber creative and talented producers - can't stand on Hollywood Blvd. and swing a cat without hitting some fresh 20 something beats maker with colored hair! What a brilliant time to be alive, and in the industry. Our favorite little LA woman Mija teamed up with Vindata to make "Better" - a fantastic combination of future feels, hip-hop beats and feel good vibes! This one is all about family, friends, being good to each other, and having a blast while staying positive! Director Ryan Farber made a cool video to go along which you can peep HERE!
Ugh! k?d is amazing! I only have a few short minutes in my crazy Monday to talk about his new track "Somewhere Far Away From Here Ft. Lolaby" that this young producer just dropped, and gotta say I am loving all the things about it. It's the first original track from our favorite newcomer, and from start to finish it's an incredible track with funky future beats feels for days! k?d pretty can pretty much do no wrong.

Jerry folk is bae - like ... we brunch and stuff. This young Norwegian producer is full of surprises, and every new track he puts out is something new and brilliant for the world to enjoy. "Take Three" is like sonic heaven, with draggy beats over synthed out glitchy melodies I am pretty much addicted! Now living in Los Angeles, Jerry Folk is about to start his first US tour in a few weeks, and we are psyched to see him in San Francisco once again! Check dates to see if he's coming to your city, and grab a free download HERE!
Good morning and happy Monday! I have a really good feeling about this week - pretty sure I'm gonna crush it! Wanted to start things off with some deep house from our Australian friend Sondrio! This young producer always delivers the smoothest tracks, and his new remix of "Value" by VOKES is fantastic! With a steady groove and eerie undertones, Sondrio creates a beautiful sound that has me feeling some kind of way! You can grab a free download HERE!
