Last week Deadmau5 got the internets all astir when he announced he would be leaving twitter for good, and in the same breath dropped a few previews of his up and coming tracks on soundcloud. While we mourn the loss of one of our favorite twitter personalities, we can’t wait to get a listen to what Joel has in store. Lucky for us LEVI seemed to be one of the few who got a jump on the mau5′s “Drop the Poptart” preview and produced one hell of a bootleg.
Tomorrow New York gets a special treat when GDD homie Burn Unit rolls into the Big Apple for a few days and we are gonna party for no reason! Turn up, come hang and if you just can’t wait for Saturday night, check my weekend party picks below!
In their own words: “I am writing this letter from the same place that this EP came from… I just read that we know more about the surface of the moon than we do about the floor of the ocean. Everyone seems to be so focused on a search for what’s out there that a lot of people ignore the things that can be found in here… A World Within is about the things we see when we close our eyes. Sometimes I think that this reality is more important than the one most people are focused on. These days I’m messing with the idea that deep down you already know the answer to a lot of questions that truly matter to you. So instead of helping everyone else build spaceships, this EP is about boarding a submarine that goes to the bottom of the sea.”
Everyone in New York is busy getting ready for the Ed Banger 10th Anniversary tonight and to celebrate there has been a lot of really great french producers giving music away for free. LEVI is no exception. I just stumbled upon his most recent ‘Le Code’ EP and it’s a slice of hard electro-progressive heaven. I hear something new with every listen and it’s complexities and orchestral stylings easily show LEVI’s classical upbringing.
As a bonus for all you Ed Banger die-hards out there, FACTION, a hard electro duo that LEVI is a part of with Boston based artist Kenny Gray, just released this dope remix of Busy P, also for free download!
If you’re looking for that one special Halloween track that is going to make all the beezies bounce, this is it. Brooklyn’s Codes and LA’s Flinch have combined forces across the country to produce a bass house tune that exemplifies both of their strengths. In ‘The Skeleton Bounce’ you can hear the heavy dub style of Flinch while Codes funky and upbeat vibes scream party. The guys have accompanied the song with an animated video perfect for projecting on the walls of your house tonight.
A few months ago I was introduced to the up and coming Australian producer, Thomas Jack. With an affinity for deep house accompanied by amazing saxophonist Adrian Symes and epic historical speeches, Thomas has made a name for himself recently with several free to download releases, most reaching the top of the Hypem charts and garnering support from DJs the world over. His most recent track “Symphony” is a showcase in why Thomas is definitely one to watch, check it and a few of our other favorites by him below!
The Golden Pony, our favorite Disco duo based in Brooklyn are back with another remix to add to their Golden Classics series! This time the guys take the new wave classic from Tears For Fears and add their own disco and funk stylings. Check it out below and grab the DL today! And if you missed it the first time, their Simon & Garfunkel Remix is also top notch.
And don’t miss The Golden Pony live at BangOn!NYC’s baller Halloween event Warehouse of Horrors at the end of the month!
