I feel like this one may not have hit everyone's radar because of the holiday - so throwing it up this morning to get your day started right! Ekali & ZHU got together to produce "Blame" -- 3 minutes of viby goodness that is making this gloomy San Francisco morning I'm livin' in feel like paradise. Vibes for days ... this has all that sweet ZHU flavor mixed with Ekali's glitchy bass beats - feelin' this one kids! You can swoop this one HERE!
I mean .... we already know ZHU crushed all our lives a few years ago. Now he's like ... oh, let me crush you again by remixing"Bad and Boujee" by Migos - dropping this siiiick ass track like it don't mean a thing! BOOM! This one is dripping with that light electro sass we love from ZHU with all the hip-hop dance flavor from Migos - together it's perfection! Go on, legends!
It's almost 5am and I have not been to bed just yet - so deciding to blog at this moment might not be the best idea - but I've been listening to this jam all day, and as I come home from a fun night of work and play with another successful show in the books, I'm back listening to my homie Louis Futon, do what he does. I am a huge fan. I've only done one show with him, a boat party which was pretty great, and I have really been trying to have him back on another one of my events ever since .... but timing is off. Soon tho, I'm make it work. Yesterday he dropped his yummy remix of "Generationwhy" by ZHU, and once again he blows my hair back with his funky future style. Louis Futon has a gentle elegance about his music, it seems to flow effortlessly from his heart. Only spending a handful of hours with him 16 months ago, I did learn a bit about his charming character. I am convinced he has no idea how good he is, but then actually knows exactly how good he is ... if that makes any sense. Love this track - you guys need get into this one!
It's the first of March - which means for us on the west coast, summer is just days away! So, it's time to bring back our Top 5 Summer Jams for 2016 - where we feature an artist's voice on tracks they are listening to, making, or just loving - either way it's all things amazing! Our girl MOONZz is kicking things off which I could not be more happy about - she's been killing it lately and we love to show her love whenever we can! She has selected a very dreamy group of jams that would be chill on any summer's eve ... solid! Thanks MOONZz for setting the mood!
MOONZz - Deja Vu
This song is just so close to me that I had to pick it.Through it all, I wrote this song that helped me cope and ultimately rise above a toxin in my life. Dejà Vu is a feeling I've felt before - the rawest form of heartbreak - and then happily haunting the one that hurt me most.
RÜFÜS - Say A Prayer For Me
I've been lucky enough to meet the talented trio & it's been the best feeling to hear how far they've come. Tyrone's voice is so raw and I've always loved that about their music.
Taylor McFerrin - Decisions (ft. Emily King)
Taylor's production is immaculate - he's easily one of my favorite producers, specifically on Brainfeeder. Beautiful pockets filled with percussive velvet. His collaboration with Nai Palm (of Haitus Kaiyote) is also one of my favorites.
This Los Angeles duo is making some pretty big waves lately. We've seen Lost Kings everywhere it seems; dropping one delicious remix after another, and finally releasing their first ever original track "Bad ft. Jessame" a few weeks back that dominated the Hype Machine charts! Lost Kings got it goin' on! So when we were chatting the other day and I asked them to submit their Top 5 Summer Jams, I knew we were in for a real treat! They have selected some great tracks, so check it out!
Cosmo's Midnight - Walk With Me (ft. KUČKA)
We absolutely love this song, kind of stumbled upon it while we were doing some shopping and immediately stopped what we were doing to shazam it. Such a feel good record that has been on repeat.
