Trainwreck

Alright, here you go.  ”Trainwreck 1979″, the sweltering new single from Death From Above 1979, is just the wake up call you’ve been waiting for. No Disco fluff.  No Deep House snooze fest.  And no Big Room bullshit. Just that trademark DFA 1979 sound, complete with heavy bass fuzz, pounding drums & howling vocals that your ears have been longing for lo these many years.  The key missing ingredient for many current day rock bands is that they don’t know how to keep their edge when factoring in the dance element to their music.  This has never been, nor will ever be the case for DFA 1979.  ”Trainwreck 1979″ is a another kick-you-in-the-crotch, spit-in-your-face Dance Punk classic.

Ten years after their first album, “You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine” was released, DFA 1979 will release their follow up album, “Physical World” on Septemeber 9th via Last Gang Records.  GET FIRED UP.

(Wait, does this mean we can hold out hope for follow up albums from Mylo and The Avalanches, too?!?)

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.

Dr. Fresch_Hella Good_Artwork-FINAL

Dr. Fresch is back with another feel good remix of a 90′s classic; this time he’s bringing summer along with a fresch new take on No Doubt‘s “Hella Good.” In his own words, I chose to remix Hella Good because it was one of my favorite pop songs growing up and no one has touched the track recently. The original song (as an entire piece) does not breathe summer, however, both the lyrics and vocal melody do. Because the vocals held this feel-good quality, I was able to reinterpret the song within the context of forward thinking electronic music; remaining true to the Dr. Fresch brand by giving the remix a tropical club makeover. I want my “Hella Good” remix to be a Summer anthem!

As the summer heats up the sounds are cooling down, with mellowed out versions of your favorite tunes popping up left and right, it’s pretty clear that the pool party season is upon us! Franne, a budding young producer from Germany, has hopped on NoNoNo’s classic, “Pumpin’ Blood,” and scaled it down to a vocal oriented piano house anthem to keep the blood chilled whilst coursing through your veins. Hop on his FB for a free download and throw the dude a follow on SoundCloud to stay tuned into to his productions.

Without Time

San Francisco’s MyKill teamed up recently with Keith Walker of The Holy Coast to produce the song “Without Time” and the outcome of this fine collab turned out to be magical.  ”Without Time” is filled with glowing synths and sexy saxophone…just the type of soothing ingredients that will instantly warm your body and mind and whisk you away to beaches filled with soft white sand & endless sunshine.

When Sam Smith sings, the ladies swoon, and the homies catch some feels. Mix in Berlin’s Fabich & Ferdinand Weber‘s production alias, JUUN, and the recipe is a feel good anthem to quench the summer thirst. This is the first sound to surface for the new duo that is sure to take the airwaves by storm as their catalogue develops. Collaborating with the UK Songbird for their first run at it speaks leagues to their production chops and only time will tell what the industry has in store for these two. For now, have a listen, throw ‘em a follow, and let their story unravel.

It takes a babe to blog us into festival season, sometimes.  Actress, model and music video muse, Victoria Geil, has this weekend covered for ya.  The anxious excitement of the drive out to this magical world on the barren edge of nothingness… the total and unapologetic poolside maxing as the sunshine and liquors flow… the punctuated moments of elation… the epic naps that tie it all together.

It’s all here, ladies and gentlemen: this is Coachella, as told by a babe.  If you’re a babe, you’ll love this.  If you love babes, you’ll need this.

This three mixtape series is conveniently tailored for use from the moment you begin your pilgrimage to the desert, to the moment you return to your respective basecamps upon the fateful completion of that final Sunday set.  Get it into you.
