Sweat It Out!
Always Never chaps SLDGHMR & Crywolf made their individual moves out to Los Angeles late last year; when you become roommates with a fellow musician, let alone one you share a label with, beautiful musical babies being created is a sort of inevitable result. If you’re a fan of Le Castle Vania’s electro-based label, of Crywolf’s emotive take on crashing progressions and knack for floaty female vocals, or of SLDGHMR’s powerful techno stabs then you’re gonna love their new collaborative effort.
‘We Could Be Heaven’ is available for free download. You can grab it here and if you dig it be sure to check Crywolf’s new EP, out on Always Never soon.
Another day, another dollar. Unless you’re out there with high hopes to make this Monday extraordinary, like Vienna producer, Filous, who seemingly clears away the cobwebs to reveal a much more magical rendition of the mundane day. Fluffy for all the right reasons, this deep pop is precisely what the doctor ordered. To make matters more sublime, a free download has been offered up to keep the party going until the end of time in your iTunes library. Pour it up, pour it up, that’s how we ball out.
Happy Monday! To kick off your week, our LA friend RAGS has given us the exclusive giveaway of (2) of his new originals. Inspired by 90s acid house and Boys Noize current productions, Rags fuses techno driven leads with modern bass workings – influences of hip hop, trap, and club for good measure! Listen to what he had to say and grab the tunes below!
“Hopefully these will stay cool when the party’s over and you’re on your own again, that’s always my goal …Let’s party but then be real friends later too. LETS BE REAL FRIENDS.”
B-B-B-B-Biiiiiixel! Seems like the LA duo have flames trailing behind their Nike shoes, with things heating up on the musical and show fronts. Having just announced their first North American tour, Bixel Boys look to be making strong appearances at places like SXSW and WMC, along with major clubs like Lure in Los Angeles and Cielo in New York.
The latest on the BB production front is their remix of Crystal Method’s ‘Over It’. Praised by many in the Bixel following to be their greatest production as of yet, the remix is definitely a high-spirited remix with a catchy melody… lots of posi #feels. Not over it. Oh ps free download because like I said before Bixel Boys knows bitches love a free download.
As we get ready to slide into the weekend, rising Miami talent Artec dishes out a nostalgic touch-up of Calvin Harris‘ hit track Bounce. Instead of hitting you over the head with overly anthemic synth patches or obnoxious amounts of white noise, he delivers a solid club track that tugs on your guilty pleasures while Kelis‘ familiar vocals do some work to get stuck in your head for the first time since 2011. Grab the free download below and be on the lookout for more Artec material in the near future.
It’s Valentine’s Day on a Friday… could you ask for a better reason to get in the lovin mood? Sending more vibes your way, Ghosts Of Venice has offered up his rework of Miguel’s panty-dropper anthem “Adorn You.” For all of you that have hit it home with this song in the background, let this be the revival of that audio aphrodisiac. Grab it below and screw in that red lightbulb. Play safe you crazy kids.

Crywolf and Ianborg partner up for a second time to release a massive free download upon the world. After the viral success of “Oceans” in 2013, the duo have gotten back together to successful effect once more. Their new track ‘Stay’ is an eloquent and emotional track, slow but heavy on the bass and distortion. With heavy kicks tactfully strewn across the track and piano melodies throughout, the track is carried by the crisp male vocals which cry out about love and loss. Crywolf is notably good at making tracks that build, crash, and melt like waves, and this one is far from an exception.
You can download the track from the pair below, and keep an eye out for Crywolf’s second EP on Le Castle Vania’s Always Never label which comes out later this year.
