On the mellower side of house music, Free N Losh comes through with a wavy marimba filled jam to fill all your poolside needs. Off the new LA Imprint, Next Wave Records, the track features dreamy beach drenched vocals from Cat Lewis and a beat thrown in reverse for an intergalactic breakdown that tugs at the beat like the moon’s gravitational effect on the sea.
It’s like Chet Faker meets Justin Vernon, SOHN’s sound, making his music quite the enchanting experience. Above you’ll see 20 minutes of so of what it takes to create his music on the spot. Live keyboards, guitar, vocals, sampling, it’s no easy feat, yet SOHN blends it all together seamlessly and melodically in true transcendent fashion. Click play, tune out, and escape for a bit to the sounds of Vienna’s rising creative talent.
It doesn’t seem like long ago the veiled producer Zhu surfaced on the web (4 months ago to be exact) and had the net buzzing about his “Moves Like Ms. Jackson” remix, but a lot has been accomplished since then. With four more originals added to his roster, including his recent hit (named Essential New Tune by Pete Tong) titled, “ Faded.” Now, though, the time has come for others to take on the fruits of his labor as official remixes begin to take shape on SoundCloud.

As the tail end of the week graciously gives way to another weekend, the time has come to catch some different feels in the music realm. Too Hot For House Music is back with a moon oriented roster of tunes to kick back and stare at the heavens to. A little bit of blues, some rock n’ roll, a smidgen of folk, it’s eclectic but not hectic. So rest your weary head and let the music set the mood as another weekend washes over in Los Angeles!
We couldn’t be more proud of our own, Tropicool. He just signed to Bond Music Group, taking the deep disco world by storm, and is about to head out on a sold out North America tour with the young prodigy, Kygo. Tropicool just dropped off quite an amazing soundtrack, in the form of a mix, cleverly entitled ‘Moonrise Barometer’. It’s nothing short of silky-smooth, and self-proclaimed to ‘be for interstellar lays, moonlit poolside daze, and warm glistening rays.’ It’s deep, sexy, & feel good. Don’t sleep on this, and hopefully you’re lucky enough to catch one of the dates below!
Everything about ROOM8 is throwback in the best possible way — their sound, the way they personally describe their music, the artwork…everything. It’s like taking a ride back into the 80s on a flying keytar — soaring through the galaxy with New Wave synth riffs whizzing all around you. You’ll see what I mean in their new release out today on Win Music, teaming up with Canadian duo Electric Youth for the nostalgic A-side, “Visions Of You.” The title track is bundled up with the top notch B-side, “Geo,” and a pair of remixes from Plastic Plates and Miami Nights. Have a listen to all 4 below. √+
Viceroy is just one of the top 5 chillest dudes in the game, and my life, lately. Bespoke hawaiian shirt collection? Untouchable. Supremely ultimate vibe cultivation? Unimaginable. Custom SOL Republic cans? Inimitable. Come on mane.
Here’s his Summertime All The Time take on the Nelly classic. Boppin’, poppin’, sunshiney vibes for when you need to hop into your private #JetLife mindset towards destinations far, far away.
I used to think this song said “smell the air in the backseat with my TV.”
We love it when our pals team up and create something awesome. Solé Bicycles collaborated with Snowball, as they gear up for their unique & massive festival in Denver, to bring you a special fixtape from one of our favorite acts performing this year; Chrome Sparks. The music that Chrome Sparks has been putting out is nothing short of spectacular, layered with several mood-laced elements that have always picked us up, or better yet, put us down when we needed to chill. This tape in particular is very reminiscent of a journey through time, starting out very slow and ambient, finally stretching into a warmer flow where we can really let the music embody our soul and power our actions around mid-day. Let this tape guide you, excited to see where it takes us on our journey.

The idea of Spring is observed around here as less of a season, and more of a feeling… it’s sunny and perfect year-round, from Santa Barbara all the way down to the border. A California-tongue-in-cheek way of saying, “Let’s wear less clothing than we do in the previous very slightly chillier months, and do you want to go ride bikes?” I believe that is exactly what my main man aRod beckons you to do with this latest installment in his now iconic SpringGlo mix series.
Five years of SpringGlo in the making, this signature of an effortlessly listenable mix features a selection of the usual choice sizzlers, as well the first Twelves remix in a bit, and a pretty righteous Todd Terje/Bryan Ferry track at the end.
If you would so kindly take up headphones and join us in chasing the sunset with a cocktail into the weekend, then yes, we would like to go ride bikes.
The trumpet player sits cross-legged front and center with a lone spotlight to illuminate his cause as the drummer keeps the beat patiently in the background. The room is dimly lit (naturally), and the clinking of ice cubes rattling around in my goblet of whiskey compliment the quiet acoustics of the space. Smoke vapor is ruminating as it dances freely in the minimal light available as the dull roar of intimate conversation comes into play. People are dancing, but not maniacally, it’s more of a lonely waltz as you wander the dance floor in an attempt to discover yourself. Head in the air, arms wide open, spinning and shuffling as the melody shifts in intensity. This escape that is offered is so meticulously calculated, from the white noise that gently makes it’s presence known in the background to the muted reverb drenched trumpet, it almost lets you know that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be, because it’s exactly where it’s supposed to be. Check for Francis Harris‘ “Minutes Of Sleep” EP out on Scissor and Thread February 24th. Stream the project preview after the jump.
