Our bud and New York native Air Zaire just dropped this little slice of tropical disco heaven today for free download. Reminiscent of the cool vibes of Plastic Plates and Viceroy, the bright chimes and sexy vocals on this track are sure to set the mood for all your summertime fun. Grab it below!
Last night, for the very first time, Disco legend and arguably the father of modern dance music, Giorgio Moroder, performed at the Output club in Brooklyn for the Red Bull Music Academy. Best known for his work with Donna Summer, Freddie Mercury, David Bowie and Daft Punk and scores for Scarface and Flashdance, Moroder drew hundreds out to BK for this landmark performance…and we were one of the lucky few who got to witness it first hand!
There’s not a whole lotta info about up and coming producer, LEVI, aside from the fact that he’s French. There must be something in the water over there though because this Obligation EP is some dope shit. Driving beats mixed with Justice like grunge, progressive meodic synths and funky grooves amke this 3 track EP diverse and delicious. Take a listen below and make sure to grab it —> here!
Coyote Kisses, the florida based “space punk” duo, are back with Thundercolor, a 4 track EP that dropped last week! The EP is their most ambitious work yet, featuring a variety of sounds from the mellow and appropriately named “Diving at Night,” to the shimmery yet dubby “Stay With You,” the funky electro-country vibe of “This is How You Know” and the sublime melodic intensity of “Changing Guard.” Definitely worth a listen…and make sure to grab the free download of “Changing Guard” from their facebook!
This month Kastle has been on his first ever live tour to support his recent album of the same name, out on Symbols a few weeks ago. I was so excited to see what he could bring to the live sphere that I just had to get in on the action at 285 Kent last friday! Check what I though after the jump!
Continuing our artist Dirt series I decided to team up with Curses, the mysterious Gotham house music ghost who has been haunting the underground lately. I have somehow managed to catch him live three times in past few months and each time I seem to fall in love a little more. Dark, deep and delectably smooth his mixes are quickly becoming the soundtrack to my New York nights and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us production wise. If you missed out we featured his mix for Marble Music a few days ago and don’t forget to check out his selection of timeless tracks below… Continue Reading
Have you heard of Curses! yet? Because if not, you really really need to….As the latest project from a big underground bass name (just try and guess who…), Curses can only be described as delectably dark deep house. I’ve seen him a few times around the NYC underground and he is easily one of my new favorites for 2013. Just check out his latest mix for French music platform, Marble, below and try not to dance…
Last Saturday we returned once again to one of our favorite haunts, Webster Hall NYC. But this time it was a bit of a special occasion… aside from 4/20, A-Trak was back in town and Webster was kicking off the start of their new weekly Brite Nites party….and it was an insane night to say the least. Check out what went down after the jump!
