I’ve tried it, every time I’ve listed to this song I’ve tried to turn it off and it’s impossible. It’s just that alluring. Hoodlem made something that has the sexual appeal of your 9th grade crush. Between the dark cords and the sultry voice of the lead singer, you are in for a treat. Now allow yourself 3 minutes to listen to this song, you will not regret it.
Hello all! This is officially my third mixtape. It was pretty sporadic, I just kept mixing songs that I thought would work together. There was no playlist of songs, no thoughtful process, I just went with my gut. I guess that’s the makings of a good DJ? I’m not too sure, but I do know that I want to get better and I thank whomever that takes the time out to listen to my music choice. I hope you enjoy it. The track listening is below.

Well, well, how can I explain this gem of a song. I usually say songs that I love have a celestial or intergalactic feel. As if the song literally catapults your soul into space, but this particular song, if you ever needed a playlist for the trip to heaven, this song would definitely be on it. This song is a piece of art, it incorporates, chopping, screwing and jingle bells. It blends all this musical elements perfectly, almost like they are deprived by not being together on a normal basis. Sia’s voice is sultry and the production takes her further, making her sound like a powerhouse singer. After your ear digests all of that beautiful melody, the song ends on a lighter and more delicate note with a beautiful arrangement of strings. The song is romantic and uplifting. If this song doesn’t brighten your Monday, I really don’t know what will. Enjoy!
Once again, this is one of those remixes that I have listening to for quite some time but just haven’t gotten the opportunity to rave about it. So yesterday I spoke about my man PatLok , today I want to mention another fantastic underground producer that goes by the name MoonBoots. MoonBoots has been a favorite of mine for some time, clearly since I’ve posted about him before. He makes productions that are mentally and usually, aesthetically pleasing. The songs that he remixes aren’t just reworked, they are reinvented.
MoonBoots’s incorporation of pianos, light chords and arranged bass work together in absolute harmony. It makes you feel cool, calm and collected. Every one of his songs has made me long for a three day summer weekend and a warm day at the beach. The remix for CHVCHES’s The Mother We Share is no different. Now the original is incredible, I love it, if I had to explain it, I’d say it sounds like a song used in the credits for an early 90’s movie. Almost like a listener today watching said movie would become confused if the song were from the 80’s or 90s. But that’s the charm of it. Listen below and let me know which you like better.
This is a song that i have been listening to for quite some time, just haven’t gotten the opportunity to write about it. This is one of the more complicated Electro- Soul songs out right now. There is no percussion or typical pop formula that makes the song easy to like. There are many levels to it without it being to disorganized. While it is very layered, it’s so satisfying to listen to.
It’s one of the songs that connects at all the right parts. You know how certain some songs that are too short or some are just too long. This song is just right. The production is as sensual as Alo’s voice, with the sounds blending and echoing into each other it almost sounds as if its one sound being broken into a thousand little parts. It’s very fascinating to listen to, and Pat Lok has a goldmine on his hands. The video for the song is extremely artsy. It’s odd and somewhat disturbing at first, it quickly blossoms into something gorgeous. Watch it below.
Moon Boots is another underground producer that usually sets the internet a blaze with his colorful and smooth electronic tracks. His remixes to songs are what Travis Barker’s are to Hip Hop songs, he doesn’t change them, just enhances them.. Moon Boots tends to produce music that is easy to digest, meaning you can listen to it driving in a car or at club and dance the night away. He finds a way to remix songs and make you love them even more, example – Little Boots, Janet Jackson, CHVRCHES, or Allison Valentine to name a few. One listen to his music and you will find yourself wanting more.
Bit Funk is one of my favorite underground EDM artist. He usually has wonderful melodic tunes that are easy to love but highly complex. Hailing in from Brooklyn NY, his music is not to be slept on, it’s almost fair to say he’s one of the best in the underground circuit. Here’s a couple of tracks, he will be performing February 22, 2014 at the Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn NY for just $12. I’m sure the show will be a lot of fun and will be a chance to dance to some sweet music. If you can, don’t miss out.
One of my favorite artists of the year, you may have heard her on the summer hit with Icona Pop- I Love it. I have been enamored with Charli for a while now, not only does the 21 year write her own music, her music takes all forms of genres. She flows over rock music, hip hop tracks, funky pop beats, Synthpop, and indietronica. Not to mention, she has a great voice. Hope this song adds to fun to your day.
Now who doesn’t love a good Lana Del Ray remix? I know i do. There are so many weak and mediocre remixes of her songs, I have only found a few remixes that really make her voice standout. I mean her voice does really standout, but i believe what stands out more is her hipster/pinup style. With certain remixes, (especially this extremely dark remix), her style isn’t standout aspect of the song. Monsieur Adi masterfully incorporates heavy strings and light drums to evoke a eerily cold feeling. For best results….Listen in dark or at least when the sun goes down. What do you think? One of the best remixes every heard?
