I only got a minute, but Le Castle Vania (a personal favorite musician of mine) just dropped a new track called Play Loud and I would feel guilty if I didn’t try to spread the love a little bit. Heartily recommended. To support the artist and get a free Radio Edit version of the song, hop on over to his site and follow the instructions.

Eddy B & Tim Gunter dropped another stellar track. They have reached the point where I judge any pop hip-hop on whether it’s as good as Eddy B & Tim Gunter. As you might expect, this track is just as good. They revisit their successful formula of lovely vocal harmonies forming a hook on top of a bounce-y and catchy instrumental leading into rap verses that tell a story while playing with rhythm and pacing. And of course the lyrics flawlessly fit the meter and rhyme. Take a listen and I think you’ll find it hard not to like this. Enjoy.
So my girlfriend decided that I needed to blog so here I am. And I have the perfect thing to blog. Purity Ring dropped “Fineshrine” for free awhile ago in anticipation of their album “Shrines” release. The album was put for sale on iTunes and Amazon yesterday. I’m in the midst of downloading it without the benefit of good internet. But Purity Ring has consistently dropped amazing music. This song is no exception. It’s glitchy with pop-y vocals that encourage the listener to listen closer, all while utilizing a hip hop style drum beat. It’s very representative of the excellent standard Purity Ring holds themselves to. Enjoy!
Well this month has been rather sparse in the blogging department for me. I’m sorry, mostly because I like blogging and I’m bummed I haven’t had the time or determination to get really into it this month. I have a hectic travel schedule ahead of me so I’m not sure when next I’ll find the time and motivation to blog but I expect by mid-August I’ll be back on schedule. In the meantime, I had to blog this. Producer Felix Snow contacted me awhile ago to introduce me to his current project wunderjax, in which he teams up with writer/vocalist Sam Gongol. I’m glad he did because this is crisp, crunchy, and ready for consumption. Take a listen and enjoy.
It’s been a few months since I’ve posted something from the skillful Sound Remedy. This song demands attention, so I give it its due. “Hide And Seek” is such an iconic song that remixing it is quite an ambitious undertaking. Conveniently, Sound Remedy has the talent to match his ambition and delivers an amazing remix filled with sparkling 8-bit synths, enjoyable chops and screws, and touch of dubstep here and there. The overall experience is one of rebooted nostalgia. Enjoy this one folks!
