artworks-000074548727-qs83ur-t500x500

Sonic Future is a duo from Brazil consisting of Cesar Funck and VJ Leo and these guys have become a staple in my sets as of late. Always equipped with funky baselines and warm grooves, their tracks have received huge support from the industry from the likes of Maceo Plex, Tube & BergerNoir, and many more! This new EP on Suara consists of a four sensational tracks. The title track, “L.O.V.E.” absolutely dominates dance floors with an a sexy baseline melody and vocals that seem to chant as the groove penetrates you. The next track is a collaboration with Do Santos called ”About The Summer,” and this one has one clear message that can be found in pretty much every aspect of the production: the thick, dark, sensual baseline and synth melodies give the track a real dope vibe and the vocals employ a mellow kind of confidence that takes me poolside behind a pair of shades. “Numb” takes you deeper into a land of ambient noises, strong emotion, and warm pads, but then brings you back with a nice diving rhythm. The last track is called “Bring it On” and features a really soulful piano melody, some haunting vocal sampling, and a very powerful drop into an undeniable baseline that invites us to get close and dance closer.

Painted BLACK is series of three theatrically immersive concerts interpreting and ultimately celebrating the ‘queen of all colors’ and its influence in music, art, design, nightlife, and New York culture.”

“Spanning over a course of two months in three acts, each Painted BLACK event has a distinct identity and musical genre, embracing a collection of artists across mediums, allowing each collective to mutually and uniquely interpret BLACK.”

“Act I will kick off the Painted BLACK concert series on February 13th at Irving Plaza with some of Europe’s most highly regarded electronic music producers.”

“Austrian duo, Klangkarussell will be Headlining the event with their debut NYC performance. Their sound incorporates elements of live instruments mixed with dark synths and deep beats. Their first single “Sonnentanz” reached over 1 million plays on Youtube and Soundcloud in its first month, creating a huge wave across Europe. 

Thomas Azier creates a unique dark pop sound, highlighting his vocals with a deep beat-heavy, synth-driven, dark experimental electronic sound. His music gives off a dark avant-garde emotion, bringing BLACK to life.”

Stefan Biniak has been proclaimed “King of the Berlin Underground” and impressed the dance music world with his incredibly melodic original tracks and remixes. Pairing together infectious house beats with complex piano, frequently warping vocals adding more elements of darkness into his music.”

WallflowerFood – Feel Good Holiday Playlist

artworks-000066189438-7tmtxx-t500x500

My boys over at WallflowerFood have been doing some serious soundcloud research. They specialize in those funky, deep, tropical, feel good vibes and always put together solid playlists full of fun, happy music. Wherever you are for the holidays, press play, turn up the volume, and find your beach. Playlist features originals from the likes of Bit Funk and RAC, remixes and edits from some new talents like Kygo and Thomas Jack, who are rumored to be working on a collaboration for 2014 (you can say i’m excited for that track…boner), and they even throw in some nu school edits of classics like Stardust‘s “Music Sounds Better With You” and Leo Reed‘s “Take A Walk On The Wild Side.” There are 32 tracks in this playlist and I for one downloaded at least 25 off the list. So basically, I’m just saying…get them while they’re hot.

SPOTLIGHT: Kygo

So, it’s about time Kygo got his spotlight (seeing as I said I’d do one 2 weeks ago and Dad (Wilki) had to remind me to get off my ass and do it). He’s a 22 year old producer from Norway, and he has songs that have that deep island vibe to them. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. Here are a few choice cuts, but be sure to check out his whole offering. Oh yeah, almost forgot, they are all free.

Smooth remix of Ed.

Some Ellie.

Marvin.

All the feels.

No diggity.

Bells.
