Breakbot – One Out of Two (feat. Irfane)(Oliver Remix)

Love on a Saturday is all you need for the weekend. Breakbot shows us time and time again the nature of that honest devotion. Irfane’s vocals ooze head-over-heels affection and pedestal-building adoration.

I’ve been having a dream 
And in it, I am just a machine 
And only she has the potion that can give back emotion 
To the meaningless thing I’m becoming 

She’s every image that could ever be seen 
She’s in the air, if you know what I mean.”

Oliver shakes some of the disco out and injects a little oomph into the bass. The result is sublime and drives smoothly alongside Irfane’s earnest. Uplifting and powerfully innocent, the sound is true to Breakbot’s form. It’s a feel-good track fit for dancing with the one that knows you best. Hold hands, spin each other around and enjoy your weekend.

Lucas Nord vs Urban Cone – Let Us Stay Young

 

It was the song I heard for the first time and liked it. But when I saw the video — I fell in love. I mean, flashing fluorescent tubes in hands and blue paint dripping from hands… catatonic stupor at its best. I guess I could relate to their dancing while listening to this tune on a friday night. Addictive? Yes. Perfect to start the weekend? Yes.

So dust off your strobe light, take out that laser pointer you bought but never used, turn off the light and start dancing. Here’s the Radio Edit, but if you’re into party mode make sure to get the Extended Edit.

Let Us Stay Young was Lucas Nord’s debut single featuring Urban Cone on the vocals. He’s one of the latest EDM talents to come out of -you guessed it- Sweden. Watch out for this kid because he’s blowing up as you read this. While the idea of the chopped up beats and the darker-dance-video theme came from Lucas, the video was directed by Mats Udd.

“Do not fall asleep tonight,
this might be a night to remember,
Do not fall asleep tonight,
please pretend i’m not a stranger,
Don’t waste the time,
Let us stay young,
do not fall asleep tonight,
it’s better if we stay together,
do not fall asleep tonight,
i know we’re bound to one another.”

Theophilus London – Dancing (Feat. Marvin Gaye)

This is definitely a party banger Theophilus pulled out of his pocket, and couldn’t be more perfect for you party animals on this Friday!  Throw in a Marvin Gaye sample, the guy who created love songs that literally made girls gasp and run to the bathroom, ya it’s no joke, he had some kind of magic in that voice and in those lyrics, I like to call him the “master of love.”  Twist up the “master of love” with Theophilus who is turning heads with his “Brooklyn Swag”, and with his ability to capture you with so many style ranges, from pop, soul, R&B, and electro, I don’t know about you but he blows my mind and I am always ready for a good time.  It would make sense that he is blowing charts and turning heads left and right, when your main influences are two of the best, Michael Jackson and Prince, those are like the great Ninjas or Gods of music!

This track is from Theophilus’ new Mixtape Rose Island Vol. 1 which is available for a Free Download, thank you TL and Warner Bros.!

Theophilus recorded most of Rose Island during Christmas in his NYC studio. TL returned to his roots with the goal of getting back to the basics for the recording of Rose Island Vol. 1. In typical TL fashion, there’s something for everyone on Rose Island Vol. 1 which is filled with hip hop bangers, electronic club tracks, sing along anthems and, of course, a couple slow jams for the ladies.

Rose Island is an imaginary place in TL’s head where he goes when he needs to escape reality and time. Some of the mix tape highlights include A$AP Rocky, Big Boi, upcoming Producer Lunice, and many more. He also Covers Pharrell Willams “Take it off’ and reworks Wang Chung’s classic ‘Dance Hall Days’.”

I have no doubt that you all are gonna want to ditch work and start your Friday grabbin’ your ladies or your gentlemen and dancin’ your pants off.  Just do it, you only live once so why not live in the moment.  Anyways press play and let your weekend begin, enjoy!

I Break Horses – Winter Beats

After a sweltering week and 4th of July night, we all need something to cool off with and just chill out to. You have to think about cold to feel cold, right? Maybe? I Break Horses released this track late last summer, and appropriately so. It’s a song that’s lyrically cold, but has a melody and production drenched in a summer heat-wave. The crescendo of the synths and the steady drum beat with a soaring guitar in the back contrast Maria Lindén’s warning to her lover that even a cold heart bleeds. Kind of depressing for this hot Thursday evening, but with Lindén lazily delivering her message, the words melt into the music leaving us with a summer evening synth symphony.

Uncork a bottle of white wine or whatever your drink of choice may be; sit on your roof, fire escape, in front of your AC and turn this tune up and zone out. It’s Thursday evening; might as well chill out , not think, and just listen for a solid 3:43 minutes before the weekend begins. You’ll snap back to reality just as abruptly as the song ends.

Jessie Ware – Wildest Moments

Do you ever have that moment of clarity where you realize you’ve fallen into a pattern with another – perhaps – bad lover slash significant other? You get caught up in the moment, see them across the room and suddenly you’re back to being vulnerable without the strings attached? Maybe you keep this habit up because maybe this time – just maybe – this moment is the one that will solidify the huge question mark that’s been stuck between you and this other. Jessie Ware, the UK darling slowly creeping into our iTunes libraries captures this question mark and plainly gives words to confusion us romantically troubled listeners have out there.

Wait on, summer sky
Wherever there’s smoke, there should be fire
One prick, bad luck
I’ve been looking at you too much

From the outside, from the outside
Everyone must be wondering why we try
Why do we try?

Maybe in our wildest moments
We could be the greatest, we could be the greatest
Maybe in our wildest moments,
We could be the worst of all.”

Thank you, Jessie Ware for clearing up and making me feel a little bit better about all those tiny obsessions and in-the-moment happenings that have left me wondering why nothing has ever come from them. Really, though, thanks. I am indeed at my worst when I’m in my “wildest moment.” Should this song’s subject matter bring me down because of the clarity I got after listening to it? Perhaps. But Ware’s soft Katy B-mated-with-Joss Stone voice over a mellow beat make me feel okay about my past and probable future. Funny how a pretty woman singing about all your hidden truths can make it all seem okay and completely normal, huh?

And so, here’s to you Jessie Ware and all the times I said I won’t talk to that one person again. Happy Thursday.

Stromae vs. Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly – Alors on D.A.N.C.E.

There are a few ways to welcome the patriotic weekend that lies ahead. Instead of listing all of them, I have opted to provide you a track that would normally ask you to dance, but instead begs for your happy ears to get happier. This is the perfect blend of two tremendous weekend hits. The lonely french vocals thrown over a powerful guitar line provide the bare essentials for this track. Sometimes in order to recreate a track well, a charming voice and a guitar are all that’s needed. And maybe some finger drumming.

I was all about this track from the moment I pressed play, so I know that you guys will probably agree with me. If you don’t, maybe you’d prefer the D.A.N.C.E. solo re-make? Because that exists too and it’s lovely.

I know ya’ll are ready to get real patriotic for your country this weekend, so I hope these tunes help you get in the right mood!

Little Boots – Headphones (Dimitri From Paris Dub)

Bring out the spandex, the thick white socks and hightops, the neon apparel and don’t forget to put on that plastic Swatch watch (with the clip-on face protector of course). We’re on a ride to 80‘s thanks to the wonderful work Dimitri From Paris did on Little Boot’s original. The french maestro brings some of our favourite sounds of that decade with the 808’s, the claps, cowbells and synth work. Even the way he chops the vocals sounds natural.

Use this tune as part of your gym soundtrack or even as warm-up to that weekend that’s just a day or so away. In the 30 days since I added this song to my collection iTunes says I’ve heard it 24 times — apparently not enough. But don’t take my word as to how much you’ll want to move to this track; put on your headphones, hit play and let me know in the comments.

Oh baby!

I wear my Headphones at the disco 
And nobody ever has to know 
I wear my Headphones at the disco 
And when the music stops 
Then you’ll hear me singing”

DOSVEC – Somebody Nasty

Yes, I realize we have heard this track remixed a lot lately but this has to be my favorite so far, Somebody Nasty the perfect mashup sprinkled with a little bit of everything and it couldn’t be more perfect on this day of parties, independence, hot guys and girls, fireworks, and getting wild and crazy about how independent we all are today!

Anything mashed with Biggie has my attention no matter what.  Probably one of the most flawless hip-hop artists of our time, with a flow like no other.  I study this cat everyday to get on the level of skill that he had, but DAMN it ain’t easy!  Can you imagine what hip-hop might be if Biggie was still around, and I am not hating at all on what’s getting put out today, but I definitely think things would be different, probably a crazy take over if you ask me. Nasty Girl was lifted from Nasty Boy, the Life After Death album, but completely different musical arrangement and lyrics.  Nasty Girl ranked #1 in the UK in 2005, pretty dope to be #1 in the UK all the way from Brooklyn.  I love it when new artists and DJ’s today remember the greats and include them in their music, it shows mad respect!

I go, on and on and on and
Don’t take them to the crib unless they bon’in
Easy, call em on the phone and
platinum Chanel cologne and
I stay, dressed, to impress
Spark these bitches interest..”

DOSVEC/DJ Whatt definitely knows what he is doing, mashups can be hit or miss if you don’t know what your doing and when you are working with a top charted track and Biggies vocals and lyrics then you better be on your “A” game, just sayin’.  I don’t think I could have come by a better track to jam out to today, it screams everything I want out of my independence; Wild, Crazy and Free!

Enjoy!

Kimbra – Settle Down (Polaris At Noon Remix)

I was listening to this in my car last night while driving to meet some friends in Santa Barbara for a show and I did one of those double takes at my stereo, like DAMN this beat has some kick.  This track is great on it’s own, I don’t know why I have been putting it off, but there is something even more special about it when its bumping on a really good sound system, you hear are the special little details that you might not have heard on your computer, and I live for those special little details in EVERYTHING! Kimbra floors me with her vocals, I am a sucker for a great vibrato, which some can make you cringe and some can bring tears to your eyes, this is what Kimbra’s voice does for me.  It’s a wonderful mixture of pop and folk that snags your interest because of how unique she sounds.

I wanna settle down
I wanna settle down
Won’t you settle down with me?
Settle down

We can settle at a table
A table for two
Won’t you wine and dine with me?
Settle down

I wanna raise a child
I wanna raise a child
Won’t you raise a child with me
Raise a child

We’ll call her Nebraska
Nebraska Jones
She’ll have your nose
Just so you know

I wanna settle down
I wanna settle down
Won’t you settle down with me?
Settle down

Run from Angela Vickers
I saw her with you
Monday morning small talking on the avenue
She’s got a fancy car
She wants to take you far
From the city lights and sounds deep into the dark

Star so light and star so bright
First star i see tonight!
Star so light and star so bright
Keep him by side!”

It’s never easy to find that one person you can settle down with, that one best friend who you can share the simplest moments with and have it be bliss.  What we are told about love from childhood and what we learn as adults is so much different but I think we should try to remember what we learn as children, how it all seems so simple, because we tend to get caught up in how difficult it is and then that’s when things go wrong.  I feel like that is the deeper meaning in these lyrics, just keep love simple and don’t over complicate.

This is a great track, the feeling and the lyrics, for this Fourth of July, which by the way is one of my favorite Holidays.  So grab some friends, family or a loved one and go the beach/backyard and don’t forget to blast this one on some good speakers, enjoy!

Flight Facilities – With You ft. Grovesnor (MAM Remix)

I could swear the first time I heard this track was when I took this picture above. But it wasn’t. The picture was last winter and this song came out about a month ago. I guess I’ve been playing it so much lately and wishing I was enjoying it on that specific moment of that still.

Anyway, this remix has all the elements of a slick, sexy, thumping and laid-back timeless jam. Sunset or sunrise, waking up or going to sleep, cocktail-mixing or baby-makin’ this is THE song to play.

I believe FF can do no wrong, and this song is evidence of it. Let yourself be taken away by the lyrics and the groove of this tune. There’s not much to say for a song when by itself it says so much.

Lets go
And get away to somewhere quiet
Where we can be in private away from prying eyes
And loose lips
That’ll get us into trouble see the whole world tumble down”

Flight Facilities – With You ft. Grovesnor (MAM Remix)
