Proving that electronic music is more than knobs and buttons, NYC's Plvtinum just released his edgy, electro-pop single "hung up on u." The single parallels his pop star branding with ease combining R&B, angsty lyricism, and experimental electronic production. Dynamic and striking, Plvtinum chops up the single's bridges while it seamlessly evaporates into his lush vocals, showcasing his dexterity for transitions. More of a character than a producer, this East Coast coquette is raising the bar for art in music. Plvtinum creates waves that are fiercely unfettering and embellished with early 2000s punk frequencies. A fine network of sounds, "hung up on u" is a sultry and fun piece worth replaying.
Seriously .... it's nap time! I've been buried in artwork and web design today, and now I'm looking for a little pick me up to get me through the next few hours of work. At times like these I reach for the pop music tracks, because what better way to liven things up with their feel good vibe! Our boy Justice Skolnik has just dropped his remix of "Quit You ft. Tinashe" by Lost Kings that's full of groovy electro-pop feels that are hitting all the right notes! Do yourself a favor and garb a free download HERE!
Normally I would not touch a cover of Flume, especially this song because it's so perfect -- how could anyone else possibly bring something new to the table. But ..... I should have known that the guy to pull it off would be Crywolf! This is kind of amazing and I'm swooning! Crywolf has that effect over me all the time - his angelic voice makes me swoon like a little girl .... oh boys! His cover of "Never Be Like You" is future electro pop perfection, and the best part is that you can grab a free download HERE!
I am 100% in a indie electro pop mood today, so I'm gonna be talking about a few amazing ladies that dropped some pretty great tracks this past week! First up is Los Angeles songstress Ofelia K and her electrifying new single "Cinco" that is pretty much the coolest thing you're gonna hear today! Her style of mixing gentle vocals among big sounding melodies is fabulous -- the build in this track is something else! Loving it! We've seen some pretty amazing things come from Ofelia K .... can't wait to see what's next!
Every once in awhile we get to show some love to a local Bay Area artist, and this next premiere lets us do just that! Popgang Records founders and San Francisco duo Manics drop their new original track "Chalk" and it's indie dance pop perfection! We don't get to talk about local artists too often - San Francisco has a great dance music scene, but not so many great dance music artists like LA or NY - so this is a real treat! When we heard this vibrant track filled with delicious synthy disco beats and catchy pop vocals we were very happy to feature it as a premiere .... it's so so so good!! You can grab "Chalk" as a free download HERE! Bonus Bay Area peeps - Manics will be supporting our boy Penguin Prison (Live) tomorrow night (February 10) at Mezzanine - I mean how much better did things just get! I can't wait to see this live set! You can still grab advance tickets HERE!
