pomo

Pomo’s new EP, “The Other Day”, is comprised of eight beautifully crafted tracks, making the EP one of 2014′s finest.  There are no throwaways here.  The entire EP, from start to finish, is nothing short of an electronic masterpiece.  Heart melting melodies that’ll have you slow dancing in front of the fireplace.  Seductive funk paired with your favorite bottle of wine or whiskey.  And deep, dirty Disco to get the blood flowing & the asses shaking.  Stock up on firewood & spirits, lock yourselves inside for the weekend & keep the Pomo EP on repeat…it’s a house party for two.

Pomo – “The Other Day” EP is out now via HW&W Recordings.

GDDemos460

​We’re stoked to announce GDD Demos, a feature dedicated to presenting original music from new and unexposed producers.

We know that getting noticed on the blogosphere is incredibly challenging for any musician new to the scene. Trust us, we get hundreds of promo mails a day from artists and label who are already established.

We can’t promise we’ll feature your music, however it won’t be a crapshoot either. We will go through every submission and pick the best ones and feature them on our SoundCloud and in a weekly post every Friday afternoon (starting next week).

Please note: This is only for serious applicants. We don’t want your WIPs or bootlegs, we want your best original tracks.

To submit, head over to our  submissions page and follow the on-screen directions.

Best of luck!

Prep School Recordings and Ardency are proud to present: Kavsinky – Nightcall (Ardency Remix), released for free in anticipation of Ardency’s “Gradience” EP, forthcoming on Prep School Recordings in December 2014.

“A lot of the music that we grew up listening to focused almost exclusively on conveying emotion. The musicians that inspired us to produce our own records were those that created well constructed musical arrangements and provoked raw emotion. Kavinsky’s record “Nightcall” is a prime example of this. The song is simple but thought out and meaningful. Every part of it was made to convey the brooding emotion of his character. We wanted to stay true to our style while making a remix that did the original justice. Ultimately, the goal of our music is to stimulate emotion within our listeners; we want to make people feel.” – Ardency

CatCallFINAL

GDD lord Tropicool has teamed up with his hometown homie Peitzke on the new track “Cat Call” and they’re bringin’ the sexual funk right to your front door (back door, too).  Check it out…

Here’s the first original track by Tropicool & Peitzke entitled ‘Cat Call’.

Oi lords & ladies! Is the looming cold front giving your tube steak frost-bite? Are your nipples harder than diamonds in an ice-storm? Do ya need an extra shot of whiskey to get that whistle wet? Thank bab​​​​​​​​​​​​y jesus Tropicool & Peitzke have combined forces to form like Voltron, and assembled ‘Cat Call’, oozing with love, and dripping in gold. It’s pure sexy funk, with a heaping side of experimental sounds perfectly tucked in, leaving us craving seconds. With the lead back in your pencil, hit play, steal Dennis’s mom’s ’97 Mazda Miata, and let all the myrts in the neighborhood know you say, ‘HEY!’

Nobody Knows

A seven year break between full length studio albums has left Joris Voorn fans, myself included, hungry for new material.  Because Joris is such a quintessential figure across the deeper shades of electronic music, it was difficult to predict some centerpiece sound in his latest project.  That being said, I began listening to Nobody Knows with an open mind for anything.  What I found was a breathtaking marriage of electronica and instrumentation — full review after the jump.

2014 has been a busy year for Ghosts of Venice. After a string of releases as well as remixes for Mystery Skulls, French Horn Rebellion and even a very special Valentine’s Day guest mix for us – he’s back with “Make Your Move”: A track that reworks the 80′s original for the modern dance floor, backed with a music video that pays homage to his new home, Los Angeles.

skrillex boomrat playlist

Over the past week, we’ve seen an awesome union between our friends at Boomrat and OWSLA.  Exclusive playlists from the likes of The M MachineValentino Khan and Yogi have paved the way for the grand finale: Skrillex.  Nothing needs to be said of his prowess in all things electronic.  Check out his curated collection of tunes that covers everything from melodic bass cuts to Drake.

The sounds of Los Angeles are strong on the new remix from L.A. producer BetaTraxx for L.A. duo Pr0files on their song “Forgive”.   Pr0files once described the city of Los Angeles as sunny & twisted.  The same can be said to describe this phenomenal remix by BetaTraxx.  While the hypnotizing vocals give the song its shine, it’s the rework by BetaTraxx that gives the song its twisted, zombie Disco persona.  The crisp, multi-layered production by BetaTraxx takes pieces of 90s, bass heavy Chemical Brothers, dirty, late-2000s Kavinsky & modern day Oliver-style Electro and molds them all together for one extra filthy remix.  Crank this one all the way up & cruise around L.A. with the top down (while wearing all black, of course…because that’s the sunny & twisted thing to do).
