What better way to celebrate Halloween than with a Masquerade Ball dance party? We are so excited for this next one kids … because dressing up is everything. On Friday, October 25 we are turning Mezzanine into a full-on ballroom so we can dance the night away. All costumes welcome and encouraged! We’ve also invited a few pretty great producers to come and play their jams … and with The Magician and Touch Sensitive topping off this event you know its going to be one funky deep house disco party for the books. Bringing up support are the homies Vandelux and Shane Alexander. Get your tickets fast because this one will sell out! See you there!
Since the day I confirmed bringing Touch Sensitive back to SF to debut his LIVE band ... I've been freaking out! If you know anything about me and the BB staffers ... we LOVE Touch Sensitive. He's continued to infect us with that super sexy funky groove that makes us shake that ass, and now it all comes together on one night ... tomorrow night .... in San Francisco. He's also just release this new remix of "Dangerous" by Umii that is all sorts of amazing! If your in the bay area, there is no better way to kick off PRIDE weekend than with Touch Sensitive ft. WILLS with Cassian and Plastic Plates. We're going to make all your deep disco house dreams come true. Grab tickets below - there will be a limited amount at the door!
Well .... look at this .... I am beyond thrilled to announce this next show. For years we've been wild about this young man right here ... his funky disco dance vibes are pretty much the best thing in life. Now, we're bringing Touch Sensitive back to the bay to debut his LIVE set on June 22 at Mezzanine! Not only is this going to be the greatest dance party of the year, it's also kicking off Pride Weekend .... so grab your rainbow flags and disco balls and come out for the time of your lives! Tickets go on sale this Friday April 6 at 10am! Don't sleep on this!
Whenever Touch Sensitive releases a new track - you know it's going to be a party! The love I have for this brilliant musician is unlike no other - he is part of a very small group of disco legends that inspired me to start all this Beautiful Buzzz madness, and even tho we are amazing friends, I still nerd out over his fresh jams. His new track drops with the announcement of a US tour, which is very exciting considering it's been almost 2 years since his last time over here! "Lay Down" - out now via Future Classic - is everything we love about Touch Sensitive - a funky disco electro gem with that deep 4 on the floor groove and all the booty shaking vibes .... no one does it like Touch! Peep his tour dates HERE and you can stream/download this bad boy HERE!
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!!

So .... this pretty much made my day! Touch Sensitive is tops for us over at Beautiful Buzzz -- we like to go on and on about how amazing his music is, and I'm not gonna lie I sometimes brag about our friendship, because he loves me and I love him, which makes me feel like a pretty lucky girl. This amazing human deserves the world, and FINALLY the world is going to get a "Pizza Guy" remix EP - out on Future Classic this October. Woah! This first listen is the remix from French deep house producer I:Cube. Pre-order your copy of the 12" with the option to bundle with a limited edition Pizza Guy 12" slipmat: futr.cl/PizzaGuyVinyl.
This tho ..... is very exciting! It's time once again for TBD Festival in Sacramento, and if you guys have not peeped that line up ..... oooo weeeee it's on fleek! To celebrate we are throwing a TBD Festival Kick-Off party in San Francisco at Mezzanine on September 17 with Washed Out (DJ) + Touch Sensitive + Prince Fox! BOOM!! Best part is you can get yourself a TBD Festival discount code, a gift from us here at Beautiful Buzzz with your purchase of Kick-Off party tickets! This night is going to be pure heaven -- this line up is cray cray and I can't wait to see everyone there!
During this time of year, I am under water with all things SXSW! Sometimes a girl needs to take a break from the madness and get creative, and last night I needed it big time!! It's the first Beautiful Buzzz mixtape of 2015. I threw in tracks I've been listening to quite a bit, some of my featured SXSW artists, and a whole bunch of dance party fun! Hope you enjoy!!

Another amazing project from some of the Van She guys!! I mean ... can they be the most amazing guys anywhere?? Michael Di Francesco (Touch Sensitive) and Matt Van Schie (Du Tonc) have a project called Tear Council, and this weekend they gave us this indie pop gem called "Anywhere" that I am just loving so much!! I've become close to 2/3 of the Van She legends ... the little angels that they are - but I have yet to have my time with Matt (even tho I have been told by Mikey and Nicky that we will totally fall in love with each other). But hey - as long as they all keep making bad ass music, I can be happy with just that .... because it's always good shit! Always! "Anywhere" drops Feb 13 and you can pre-order from iTunes HERE!
