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. √+

We’re less than a week away from WMC and our showcase with Sweat It Out Music! Today we feed the fire and bring you the exclusive premiere of Plastic Plates new original “Nothing Like You”, forthcoming on Club Sweat. This production is 100% vibes, with a funky house rhythm atop a beautiful vocal teasing throughout the track. As mentioned in the description “Bob Marley said that one good thing about music is that when it hits you, you feel no pain. ‘Nothing Like You’ epitomizes this. FEEL GOOD music at it’s best. Put this on, take your lover, (or lovers), and go smile and dance in a field.” Listen below and get down with yo bad self!
One of our favorite Aussies Felix Bloxsom aka Plastic Plates has just created another summertime heater in his newest remix for The Aston Shuffle.

The Sole Bicycle Fixtape Saga continues. This time with Plastic Plates at helm you can expect tropo-funk soulfully blended with masterful composition. This is the perfect soundscape for your spring/summer landscape. Enjoi.
After weeks of being on the #GDDRV tour, the GDD djs Troy Kurtz, BONES and Burn Unit return with a massive triple threat Dirt edition that is yours for the taking. Not only were these some of the tracks that stood out over the trips to SXSW and WMC, but also served as the soundtrack to the cross country tour spirit…
It’s been a journey. Since its inception in the summer of 2010, our longest lasting weekly feature, The Dirt, has brought a staggering amount of free music to the masses, and we’re proud to still be here 100 editions and 100 Dirt Babes in the books. It’s a tough feat to get these tracks together each week (probably why we have some gaps in the mix here and there, apologies), but it’s been an amazing experience sharing music with all of you, which, of course, is the main reason why we’re here.
We wanted to put together something special for the centennial episode, so 11 of our writers have included 2 songs each — one from one of the 99 past Dirts that we’ve posted and any other song that we felt was exceptional enough to make the cut of such an outstanding post. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed putting them together. Here’s to another 100. Continue Reading
