Australian multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Mickey Kojak has a reputation of taking his fans on a wild ride. From nightclub favorites, to slow acoustic jams- he uses his creative eccentricity to cultivate a unique listening experience. Kojak is notorious for taking inspiration from both new and old technologies, which has led him down a stylistic path, which he can rightfully claim as his own. Releasing “Feel My Pain” as a young producer, he gained extensive national radio play, giving him a leg up. Having already put out two heavily streamed covers of Daft Punk’s “Something About Us” and Mac Demarco’s “Chamber Of Reflection” early in 2018, he’s moved towards his latest release, “Get Out.” This release comes courtesy of the dynamic duo, Alt: Vision and Casablanca Records. “Get Out” is a high-energy track with raw lyrics and soundscape to match. We’ve heard buzzz that later in the year we can expect some local and international collaborations, which are sure to elevate Kojak as an artist we can return to time and time again.
Who doesn’t love Berlin? It’s unlike anywhere in the world for parties that don’t stop and dance floors that never sleep. It draws the crowd of residents and visitors alike, for obvious reason… THE MUSIC. Once again, the artists have not disappointed. Bridge Guy returns courtesy of Berlin Bass Collective with a dreamy two-track release from his EP, Neukolin CLAV. The first track of the EP, “CLAV it your way” incorporates playful, house-oriented beats with groovy chords, and evocative vocals for a brighter- more disco influenced sound. This lovely release speaks for itself, offering the perfect feel for any afterhour to keep the party going and the people bouncing!
Some of the best tracks pull you in and take you for a ride, “Off For The Night” is no exception and conjures a long walk through the streets of Brooklyn at night contemplating how to get your shit together, with a precipitous series of revelations crashing over you as the journey progresses. NY Producer duo MEMBA and Auckland, New Zealand transplants No Wyld masterfully blend genres to deliver a measured, but brooding, original that channels feelings of frustration we all feel at one point or another. The track’s lyrics insinuate a need for escape, a common theme in music but one that when done right strikes a chord in anyone listening. Both of these groups of artists have great things on the horizons, make sure to check out more of MEMBA’s music here, as well as No Wyld's here.
Some of my most vivid memories of in college, not to mention formative bonding experiences with lifelong friends, occurred with an RAC remix in the background. Industrious doesn’t even begin to describe the volume of amazing work he has graced our ears with over his long, yet seemingly ageless, career. Throw St. Lucia into the mix and you have a recipe for greatness anytime, every time. The two recently combined forces again to bring “The Beautiful Game” into existence for our listening pleasure, and needless to say they deliver. Like a lot of their previous work, the track pulls me into a state of contemplation over the furious contradictions that come with loving someone. The juxtaposition between melodic indie pop beats and lyrics outlining the intoxicating frustrations of infatuation get me every time. If you’re trying to catch those feels in person RAC just kicked off the North American portion of their tour with a full list of stops here. RAC & Jean from St. Lucia also graced the interwebz with a Q&A session you can view here. Stream/Download your very own copy here.

Let us introduce you to BB newcomers Far & Few! The Austin based bass heads have had initial success with their remix of Alison Wonderland's "Already Gone ft. Brave and Lido" Today they've given us the opportunity to premiere their new single "Candyland!"
