It's hard to believe this is our first Oliver Nelson premiere! Over the past few years I've become pretty close with this whole team of legends (artist and management) - we've had some laughs to be sure! The love between Oliver Nelson and myself is pretty special - when we are together it's tons of giggles, hours of talk about music and life, all the things besties do except we only see eachother a few times a year. So this next premiere is another first for me and my Swedish disco angel, and he's coming at us with all the funky dance grooves! "Ain't A Thing ft. Kaleem Taylor" is classic Oliver Nelson, clean and crisp disco house that has an infectious beat and thick soulful vocals - just try not to shake your booty! This one officially drops Sept 16 via Perfect Havoc and you can pre-order from iTunes HERE!
Honestly tho ... Oliver Nelson is the greatest! The love shared between me and this Swedish bundle of joy is unparalleled. It's like he's my gay straight best friend - if that makes any sense! I could sit with him for hours and talk and talk and laugh .... which is what we do every time we're together! What an amazing human! Bonus that he makes some pretty fantastic music too! Oliver Nelson releases his new original and I mean .... I love it! Filled with all that deep nu-disco love we can always expect from this legend, "Changes ft. River" is a feel good gem that's gonna put a smile on your face. This one drops Friday and you can pre-order from iTunes HERE!
Swedish producer and one of our besties Oliver Nelson released a killer remix of "The Alarm" by Anne-Marie yesterday. In typical Oliver fashion, this groove runs deep with nu-disco beats and serious vibes! We've missed our sweet friend since the last time together, running through the streets of SF and writing which-house songs at a hotel after party! Not to worry - He's back in town tonight at 1015 for Perfect Havoc Disco with the homies Tobtok and Gigamesh. If you're in the city - I highly suggest joining us for some serious dance party action! Grab tickets HERE!
When I think about the Perfect Havoc dudes it's hard not to smile - my homies are some pretty amazing characters, and their little collective is nothing but delicious disco vibes! Perfect Havoc is a label, management agency and club night out of London, and they're throwing their next party that promises to be a rager! Perfect Havoc Disco returns for a bank holiday shindig on April 30 at Brixton Jamm featuring My Digital Enemy, Digital Farm Animals, Oliver Nelson, Tobtok, Televisor, Keljet, Skogsrå and Adam Griffin. To celebrate Keljet has dropped a killer artist mix for Perfect Havoc which we are premiering here! It's jam packed with all the funky disco and indie dance vibes to get your booty shaking! So, if you're in London and dig them disco vibes, grab some tickets and we'll see you there!

One thing I have always said is that I am definitely not a music journalist! Beautiful Buzzz was created as an outlet where I can tell my friends about all the great music I come across - and over the past few years we've grown into a fun place where people can find new tracks and listen to my stories! This Best Of 2015 list is personal; it's a combination of tracks I loved and great moments I had working with the artists over the past year - whether it was through the blog, at one of my Beautiful Buzzz shows, or just a night out on the town!! Enjoy!!

What a perfect way to end 2015! Our next premiere reflects this amazing year of love and growth at Beautiful Buzzz - making new friends and reaching more people, it's been a wild ride! We've had the pleasure of getting to know these two legends (and their management) -- a night of fun and one million laughs with Oliver Nelson in San Francisco, and Arthur Younger did a Buzzzmix that was straight fire! Today Arthur releases his discolicius remix of "Found Your Love" by Oliver Nelson that grooves so deep you'll be lost in that nu-disco house vibe in 2.5 seconds! I see amazing things in the future for this young UK producer, and I am so happy we'll continue to grow together! Grab a free download HERE!
So much amazing music in the world, so little time!! The December Buzzz Box has kicked off, and we have some juicy little nuggets selected just for you! Featuring tracks from Amtrac, The Him, Kygo, Biao, Oliver Nelson, Loframes plus many more! Happy listening!
Our main squeeze Plastic Plates sent over his new remix today, and as usual this Aussie producer has delivered another funky disco jam for our listening pleasure! Now back in LA, he's been busy working on gems like this, and this version of "Found Your Love ft. Heir" by Oliver Nelson is disco-licious! Plastic Plates has that deep funky house jam that we love, and he does it better than most! Listen and love!
WOW!! March is so bananas for us with SXSW and WMC - we could not even think about The Buzzz Box for the past few weeks!! However, we are back this week with some slammin tunes that will definitely make up for our absence!! This playlist is full of goodness, I've been listening non-stop!! Also some amazing photography by Kayla Varley - Get on it!!
