{Music You Never Knew You Liked} Adventure Club Feat Yuna- GOLD (Minnesota Remix)

Wow is this song amazing. Not to be cheesy but this song, is it’s title, Gold.  Adventure Club usually makes incredible tracks that cannot be topped but somehow, someway, Minnesota did it. Just by slowing down the tempo and turning up the chopping, the song sounds totally different. It still has elements of dubstep original song, but dare i say more exquisite? This rework has a charm that can get you pumped at a club or used for a relaxing night drive, it simply just pops more than the original, you be the judge. Tell me what you think below?  Good looks on this find Elizabeth, you have great taste.

{Must Listen} Pat Lok Feat Alo- Move Slow

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.

{Music that you Never Knew You Liked} Ellie Goulding-Beating Heart (Vindata Remix)

Now i have been listening to this song for a couple of weeks now, and i think it is the definition of incredible. I have been listening to Ellie Goulding’s music for a long time and have an extensive collection of her remixes, but Vindata’s, this has to be the best I have ever heard. V The production at first takes on a quality of a video game from the 90s, then you hear Ellie’s voices that grounds the song. Her voice isn’t altered (liked in most of her remixes), the quality of her voice cares the songs. The song sends you into a trance like state and snaps you back with its strong bass in the chorus. Vindata are a electronic music production duo from Los Angeles, United States. They have a small fan bass, but if they will continue to put out work like this, they will only become bigger and bigger.  It’s a incredible piece of electronic music, enjoy!

Theophlius London

I have been wanting to do a post about this artist in particular for quite sometime. Usually when I write about music, I say: This artist is one of my favorite or this artist is smooth and makes music that make you move. When it comes to Theophlius London, he is one of a kind in every way possible. While most artists use music to facilitate their personal styles, the Brooklyn native is style and fashion incarnate. He doesn’t dress wild and crazy to get an audience-ahem, Lady Gaga, nor is he Kanye West trying to reinvent style with the use of his music. London is style that has been transformed into a listening form. He reminds the listener/viewer that style is what you make it and that it is important for it to vary with each person. He not only thrives in electronic music, he somehow manages to still be a hip-hop/R&B artist. London is eclectic, all the while being musically balanced and in his music, there isn’t too much of any genre of music to label him as a specific type of artist. He caters to the majority of listeners. Some can argue that he sounds too old school because he has many 80s sampled tracks or too flamboyant, but one thing you can’t argue is that no one in music sounds anything like him. He’s original in a music world where everything on the radio uses the same template of percussion to make a hit. Theophlius London will draw you in with charming ways and his unabated style.

Moon Boots

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

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.

Earthbound goes Snowbound

Who remembers Super Nintendo’s 1995 cult video game Earthbound? If you don’t, its ok, just take notice that its where Super Smash Brother’s character, Ness is from. Anyway, the music from the game is epic, so epic in fact that a remix was made for one of the most memorable levels-Snowman.

His name ..DOOM!!!

He wears a mask like Yo! on the Gong Show

MF+DOOM+PNG

MF DOOM, DOOM, Madvillian, JJ DOOM, Viktor Vaughn, Metal Fingers, Zev Love X, King Geedorah is a hip hop rapper/ “super producer” from  Long Island, New York.  He began his career in 1991 with the rap group KMD and appearing at multiple open mic sessions with a stocking cap over his face obscuring is facial features.  Soon after, he took on the persona MF DOOM after Marvel comic books villain Doctor Doom and since then is rarely seen with out it. Either it be a media appearance, concert tour, or a picture with a fan, he wears his metal mask. In 1993 his older brother was struck by a car and killed on Nassau Expressway while crossing it and for a period of time DOOM left the hip hop scene. In 1997, he came back with vengeance stating that he was swearing revenge “against the industry that so badly deformed him”.  His strange appearance also reflects his music. Usually his music is chock full of unconventional hip hop beats, and a rhyme approach that is very hard to label. It’s almost like he rhymes in patterns or in a off beat manner that somehow magically compliments his production. DOOM is truly one of a kind and is not for the faint of heart or those that label themselves as “normal“. Not only does he talk about issues people typically ignore in rap music such as, stereotypes and male chauvinism, he mocks it. He is a reflection of how weird people can be sometimes .   He represents being an outcast, he lives in the underbelly of all things strange and he’s hear for you to listen.

Silversun Pickups – Cannibal

I am so excited about this new track from Silversun Pickups, it’s shoegaze, alternative with a twist of electric rock. It’s just as catchy as their usual songs, but still nothing you will constantly hear on the radio. I first heard of Silversun in 2006 while in high school with their debut track “Lazy Eye” and I instantly loved them. I followed them for years and when I met my girlfriend 4 years ago, she would constantly debate that the lead singer sounded like a girl. Here’s a refresher of their debut track “Lazy Eye” and their newest “Cannibal”. Let me know what you think!
