Another Miami duo in the house, today. Dude Skywalker has been makes a seriously groovy disco house record. They’ve packaged up their latest two for a slick EP release, appropriately titled the “I’m The Dude” EP. One side disco, one side funk — I have a feeling both of these tracks will be sneaking their way into many-a-laidback house sets over the coming months. Grab a cool White Russian and kick back to the sounds of Dude Skywalker.
Electronic music is an ever changing atmosphere. In a constant loop of evolving genres and more and more producers surfacing every day, what was once an underground genre, now requires true musicianship to make it. A perfect example, up-and-coming brother duo, Sailors, had been producing a long time as a hobby, but decided to take a chance dropping everything to make it a career. And we’re glad they did. With a clear vision of what they wanted their music to portray, the duo’s sound transports you far away from reality. Their latest original, “Feels So Good”, lives up to the title. Catching your attention from the start, the track travels through piano keys, mesmerizing vocals and a variety of soothing instrumentals. Out on Casual Jams Records, stream the track below. Enjoy!
Sluggers have bounced onto the scene as one of the best new booty-tech producers out. I haven’t heard a bad track out of this Miami-based duo, and they continue the hot streak with today’s release. They set their sights on Aaron Smith and his massive tune “Dancin.” Unlike other remixes we’ve seen that have been very happy-dancey, Sluggers take a harder approach by incorporating a hard bass arrangement and cool tech elements. Stream it below and be sure to grab your copy on iTunes.
Whitney Fierce is a name that you’ll want to be remembering. A member and touring member of Hercules & Love Affair, she’s no stranger to high class musicianship. She’s taken her well-rounded musical influence to the decks for a solo effort, lead today by the first single off of the forthcoming “Broken Car Window” EP. ”The Night Air” lies on the darker side of the deep house spectrum, showcasing skillfully crafted percussion elements and a devious bass line. An accompanying remix from Eric Sharp lightens things up a bit, reworking the track with jackin’ house flair. The release is capped off with a launch party at Golden Box in Hollywood tonight, the 24th. She will be joined on the decks by Eric Sharp, Bystander, Give In and Londonbridge — RSVP here.
Over the past couple of months, Santa Barbara’s rising indie-electronic group, FMLYBND, has been cultivating their already impressive catalog with songs like their original, “Letting Go,” and a cover of The Pixies’, “Where Is My Mind.” Today, they continue on their run of releases by putting out their latest single, “Air.” FMLYBND lays the foundation of the song with a mood-elevating, synth-laden groove before building out the rest of the track with dynamic textures, romantic lyrics, and vocal accents for yet another standout original. Check it out above and catch the band live at Popscene SF on March 6, followed by a tour with Milky Chance this Spring.
The Magician just concluded a live stream of his 50th Magic Tape which, in & of itself, was a momentous occasion. But something else occurred along the way that might also prove to be quite special. The Magician closed out his seminal set with “I’ll Be Pushin’ On” by Zac Samuel. Using an artist’s track as the closer for the 50th Magic Tape on a live broadcast of the event is some pretty next level support. It’s the kind of high profile support that could give “I’ll Be Pushin’ On” a ton of momentum heading into festival season. ”I’ll Be Pushin’ On” is a double dose of high energy & heavy emotion. It’s a hands-in-the-air anthem that is sure leave every festival goer this season with permanent Chrissy Teigan face.
Here’s what Zac Samuel himself had to say about the song:
“This track took me two years to finish. Two computer crashes, one sample denial and a lot of different kick drums. A pain but a pleasure, happy to share with you all my debut. PEAAACE YEH!”
Well worth the wait! ”I’ll Be Pushin’ On” will be out in early April on PMR Beat Club.
Our friends TastyTreat teamed up with BLACK MONDAY to deliver an awesome remix today. They went after Cathedrals and one of the biggest tracks from their self-titled EP. ”Want My Love” is a beautiful vocal track, and gets a welcomed edit with this remix. Warm synths and break inspired percussion transform this track into a really sexy future bass piece. Needless to say, keep an eye on these young producers as they continue to impress with each release. Grab the free download here!
I’ve been sorting through the onslaught of Odesza remixes for the past 48, and I can say with confidence that this one has seriously struck a chord. Haywyre nails his take on the popular track “All We Need,” and reverts to the groovier side of his production spectrum. After two hard hitting tracks — Insight and Everchanging — it’s refreshing to see a little step back to a more funk/disco and dance-centric sound. Let these bounce inducing synths pave the way to the weekend, y’all. Oh, free download too!
