i don’t care what your stance is on him, he makes good music. yeah he drowns the radio, but it’s better than gaga. right? i think the guy is talented regardless. here’s a track that i like right off the bat from listening through the album. a nice sample and some creative lyrics, what else can you expect. but if you really want to get in the mood for this album, just check out the new scorsese film, the wolf of wall street, where west’s black skinhead plays throughout…
got a great folky/electric summer jam by the nonono to start off your monday. out of stockholm sweden, this trio has that high energy everyone can get behind no matter what genre of music they prefer. though i have quickly become a big fan of all their stuff of soundcloud, “pumping blood” is definitely my favorite.
really interesting track. don’t know a thing about this guy, but from the little i’ve gathered, he’s a london-based pop artist known for tracks like these. anyway i liked the tone and the lyrics. happy father’s day to all those great dad’s out there.
this is an edm tune through and through. it pooounds the speakers with the hard bass-line and makes for one hell of a fun track. the vocals are a bit trapped out, but nothing too serious for you puritans. the best part is - this is just a teaser to let us know they are getting ready to release their next single. either way, let the intro draw you in, and wait for the drop to smack you in the faaaaace.
artist | empire of the sun track name | alive (zedd remix)
if you are zedd, you have to feel pretty great about yourself; his hit “clarity” has basically been incorporated in every dj/producers set in one way or another for the past six months and now his remix of empire of the sun’s new single “alive” is literally having the same effect. the young german producer does a great job of reworking the melody and creating a beat that crosses all genres of the edm spectrum. from the drops to the hook this song will find a way into your summer playlist real quick if it hasn’t already.
i was supposed to do great things, i know the road was long. but i wasn’t raised to shoot for fame, i had the safety on.
haven’t heard from these guys in a long time, but i’m so happy to stumble on this track that was released earlier this year. a quickly paced tune and excellent lyrics to jump start your tuesday. as always…
artist | disclosure track name | you & me (baauer remix)
rolling with the punches, so they wont get into our happiness
baauer, yeah the guy who brought us “harlem shake”, is back again with another banger, this time remixing disclosure’s “you & me.” the combo of disclosure and baauer is a match made in heaven. disclosure is probably one of the hottest groups out there right now and the way the trap genre has taken off the last few month with baauer leading the charge it is no surprise that this song is a hit. turn the bass up and enjoy
huge summer jam from the trio of cash cash. bebe rexha vocals are spot on and the synth work for the melody is great. since hearing this song earlier in the week, I have been obsessed and after just one listen you will be too. expect other big things from these jersey boys.
so i know last time i said i was gonna post more covers. for those who are interested, you can find those covers here and here — they’re both really good and give a different sound than you may expect. but, today is a friday and so i wanted to give you something way…way more fun. if you’re immediately making fun of me for posting this, then fine…but just you wait…you know this song is gonna come on and as soon as that first jay-z lyric drops, you’ll be singing along just as quick. i really can’t say much else about it except that i keep chanting it in my head…
all i need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend…
artist | klingande track name | jubel [orignal mix]
for a mellow little thursday morning. no throwback today, but the brass on this track is something else. my ears very much dig the different, but simple components of the song. the piano in the beginning, the steady percussion rhythm, the crazy little synths, and of course - that guttural alto sax.
i was stuck in the ground trying to cover my eyes trying to move all this light i spent all night trying to remember your face like trying to get blood from a stone but there was nothing to save and no one to lie to and i watched as the bone dust hung in the sky like a dim flock of endless prayers and i spent my days out chasing the wind trying to turn gold from your hair but there was nothing to save in the flux and decay of the changing winds
