Grooves all around as CHVRCHES lead singer Lauren Mayberry’s gentle, chiding voice consumes the underground setting and band members Iain Cook and Martin Doherty compliment with live bass, backup vocals, synth patterns, and drums.

All different walks of life converged in Oakdale, California over the weekend during the Autumnal Equinox for Symbiosis Gathering; a period of time where the balance between the light and dark inside you, and around you, dances in harmony one last time. As the impending Winter slowly overpowers the days of Summer, thousands gathered at the Woodward Reservoir for a festival that was much more about a way of life, than it was music.

Brookyln’s Follow Me step up to the plate to bring you a dance floor amplified rendition of Johnny Stimson‘s funky record, “Daddy’s Money.” The goal was to create something that allowed them to get back to more of an 80′s sound, a sound that originally boosted them into the spotlight. What comes to fruition is a funkadelic track that tells the tale of a burned out female that’s strapped for cash and impossible to please after Daddy’s money runs dry, something Gen. Y’ers are experiencing all to frequently.
The turn down is real in Shlohmo‘s latest post-2 a.m. remix. Pitched vocals with rumbling sub-bass and rolling looped hi-hats complete the Shlohmo transformation that will leave you floored post-club. Laura Mvula is someone to keep an eye on here as well, with Prince wishing her the best before her massive performance in LA last night. It wouldn’t be Shlohmo if he wasn’t ahead of the curve.
Future Classic is back at it, this time with Luke and Olly from Bodhi and the first track off their upcoming EP set to be released on Oct. 7th. The guys are currently on tour with Bondax, and you may have heard this rinsed if you’ve been able to catch one of the sparse and secretive shows. A vinyl pre-order form is available for those looking to stay ahead of the curve. Others, for now, will have to let the stream tide them over until a digital release becomes available from overseas.
As the first introduction to UK based Luxury‘s SoundCloud career, a curious record by the title of “J.A.W.S” has surfaced with the caption, “Out soon on Method Records. Produced with Disclosure.” Letting the music speak for itself, a bright synth driven record grounds the piece as the syncopated percussion adds a heavy splash of dance to the track. You hear Disclosure in the drums and Luxury certainly makes his presence known with the synth line but it will be interesting to see what the young producer can accomplish on his own.
