To celebrate his recent AWARD EP release on Fool’s Gold Records, the NY based Brenmar is throwing a party w/ iheartcomix @ Los Globos this Thursday in Los Angeles and we wanna give you a pair of tix to go!
HOW TO WIN:
Share/RT this post on twitter and we’ll pick a winner at random on Thursday morning.
His aptly titled Award EP (out 1/20 on Fool’s Gold) is more than a victory lap for a nightlife champion, but the start of an awesome new chapter, melding songwriting chops atop years of body-moving DJ knowledge. From 808 slow jams to confetti-ready anthems, Award is a four-track collection of earworms featuring voices from the underground (Newark’s Dougie F and UNiiQU3) and radio (Jeremih collaborator Sayyi) alike.
Philadelphia based producer Louis Futon has had quite an explosive 2014, but it looks like that won’t come anywhere close to what 2015 has in store. From a series of viral remixes and originals, alongside the announcement of becoming a solo artist, the New Year is shaping up quite nice.
To celebrate his first headlining tour kicking off in Australia this month – Louis Futon has reached out to aussie artist Just A Gent to remix his new single “Limelight” featuring H A Z E S. LF turns in one of his most impressive productions to date. He takes his future-bass-meets-trap stylings and takes things up a notch, with not a single dull moment from start to finish. The buildups are pleasant only to be met with unreal drops and breaks for a roller coaster of a ride. To honor the tour we have been allowed to launch this song with a limited FREE download for 72 hours. Then it will be stream only until it is officially released as part of a larger remix package set for an official release very soon.
Louis is also a gifting this track to his fans due to delay’s on the release of his much anticipated self-titled Louis Futon EP, which is now set for a January 28th release and will also be available as a FREE download. This will feature DRNUK, Sir Rock, Silk and More.

To kick off 2015, Wax Motif gives up a new original called ‘Since I Left You.’ This one takes us into disco/electro overdrive with a big synth lead, a fat kick and the melodic aid of a classic Brandy vocal. Fans of Alex Metric, Oliver and Grum will be all over this one, and it comes with an interesting back story from the Wax-man himself:
“So this is a track I did almost over a year ago now. It was during a really difficult time for me as I was new in America and my ex and I had just split up. I was just crashing out on people couches or guestrooms, whoever would have me, while I tried to figure out if I was gonna even keep going with music. It was a Friday night and I really didn’t feel like going out and my friend who I was crashing with had a studio so I sparked one up and this is where ‘Since I Left You’ was born.”

2014 was a huge year for AC Slater, birthing the party turned house movement known as NIGHT BASS.
