SLINGER

Slinger be slinging them heaters. A couple weeks ago, an exceptional remix of The Kooks’ “Around Town” by Slinger fell into my inbox. It caught my attention immediately. A couple days ago Slinger hit gold again when he remixed my latest crush Jess Glynne’s new solo effort “Right Here”. Just for you, I have both remixes below. I think this new electronic producer has a lot of promise. His sonic choices are impressive. He doesn’t overwhelm you with pulsing bass, he has unique sounds, and stays dancey while remaining melodic. Can’t wait to see what the kid comes up with next. 

 

 

BACK FROM ROSKILDE

Posted in Uncategorized on July 8, 2014 by Keyvon

I just got back from Copenhagen, Denmark, where I went for a week to check out the epic Roskilde music festival. The headliners included The Rolling Stones, Outkast, Stevie Wonder, Arctic Monkeys, Major Lazer and Damon Albarn. Drake’s bitch ass was supposed to headline but cancelled due to a yeast infection, so he was replaced by Jack White. The festival was bananas, and very dirty. Girls and boys were peeing in public on every tree and wall in site, and the camp grounds looked more like a refugee camp. But that’s the fun of a music festival. I always keep my ear to the ground in a new country and stumbled upon this dope house track from Route 94 that I heard on Copenhagen radio. I know nothing about this dude, but found myself singing the song all weekend. Hope you enjoy!

 

 

STEPH SEROUSSI

Pop superpowers Kylie Minogue and Pharrell Williams teamed up recently for the very catchy “I Was Gonna Cancel”. I mean, seriously, how does Pharrell have time for all this music making? This weekend I received an even sexier, dancier version of the track from French producer Steph Seroussi. I’m loving his additional production of the track, giving that indie flare and still making it dancefloor ready. Keep up the good work Steph

SHOE SCENE SYMPHONY

Posted in MUSIC with tags , , , , on May 15, 2014 by Keyvon

Here is some disco house dancey-ness from two So-Cal locals calling themselves Shoe Scene Symphony. Seems like they gained some traction by getting their Lorde remix played on mainstream radio. Congrats to them for that, but I’m more enamored by their House remixes of some popular R&B tracks from the turn of the Century. As some die hard readers may know, I am obsessed with Aaliyah remixes, and they do a pretty nice job remixing her Romeo Must Die anthem “Try Again”. They also give a sexy disco house remix of Janet’s “Deep”. For some dudes from the OC, I’m pretty impressed. Keep em coming guys and hit me up if you ever make it up to LA.

LA ROUX IS BACK!

The day has finally come where I can officially announce the return of La Roux! Not only will La Roux be playing a sold out show at the Greek Theater opening for New Order on July 13, and not only did La Roux release her new single “Let Me Down Gently” today, but they will also be releasing their Sophomore album on July 7th. You can pre-order it HERE. So hyped! Today will now be known as La Roux day. Mark it down on your calendars. Bout damn time La Roux.

JUST KIDDIN RETURNS

Posted in MUSIC on May 8, 2014 by Keyvon

Remember Just Kiddin who dropped that epic Usher remix a couple years ago? Well they’re back with some more sexy house music for your ears. The UK duo’s track features some male vocals and nice synths that would fit nicely next to some of that new Tensnake. Loving this sexy soulful house takeover happening right now. Let me know what y’all think. Enjoy!

BABY IM FADED

I was listening to Hype Machine’s Top 50 on the way back from Coachella on 4/20 and #1 was this track by unknown producer (to me) ZHU. The lyrics are minimal and simple. “Baby I’m Faded. All I Wanna do is drive home to You.”  A lot of electronic music, especially mainstream songs put to much emphasis on verses and lyrics and they’re usually very cheesy. It’s all about the groove and the beat. All we need is a chorus to sing along to. And what a great job Zhu does here. So grab a blunt and let Zhu take you home.
