Alternative, Exclusive, Girl Fire, Pop | King Deco — Tigris EP & Interview

Posted by on April 24, 2014

tigris haze2 e1397503284537 500x500 King Deco — Tigris EP & InterviewAmidst this facile pop culture climate—in which producers and writers alike have problematically concluded that lucrativeness follows the more nugatory and hollow creations—an artist with a clear identity and sound is at once both palpable and powerful. Hence, my enthusiasm for King Deco. A month after releasing her EP’s lead single, “One”, the full project is here, adding two mesmeric and lushly-produced tracks in “Laila” (produced by Adam Pallin) and “Ocean” (produced by Cobra Starship’s Ryland Blackinton & One Love), as well as a Kinetics verse with every bit as much of the intricateness and carefully-crafted lyricism we’ve come to expect from the astute rhymer. What is most compelling, though, about King Deco’s project, is how much depth and weight this project bears in just three songs. She excels at combining lyrical tension with her softening, tranquil harmonies, and ultimately leaves us craving a more ample dose of her world. Luckily, we don’t have to wait long, with her Euphrates EP release around the corner. For more, we spoke to the talented songstress herself:

My good friend Angus just put LA trio AndDrop on my radar and their latest remix of D!RTY AUD!O’s “Flame,” a mix of a trap and bass to get your Thirsty Thursday started early! Blending, elements of deep house, trap, and progressive house, to my ears at least, this track will fare well at your Summer parties, hard enough to hit, and light enough to keep the rager contained. I dig it, and I just want to point out that I also dig the bandana design on the cover, very G! This is a must listen and a must download!

Folks, this is one of these records that you don’t want to sleep on, it’s absolutely beautiful. If you’re a believer like me that music has the power to change the world and bring people together, then Glastrophobie’s remix of Anna Graceman’s “Words” might be the one that does. If you’re just discovering the 22 year old producer from Germany, check out his SoundCloud, notably his remix of James Vincent McMorrow “We Don’t Eat” and Angus & Julia Stone’s “And The Boys,” both beautiful deep house records that will resonate. Stay up, love ya’ll, this is a must listen and a must download!

Progressive House | Ansolo & Special Features – Unite

Ansolo Special Features Unite Ansolo & Special Features   UniteTom Staar has taken his brand of bouncy house to the next level, establishing a new label to release his own tunes and those of others. The first release from someone else comes from Special Features and Ansolo, who step away from the cheery melodies for something more club oriented and fitting of the label’s ethos. Their melodic capabilities are still shown, but expect a little something different from these two on “Unite”.

Progressive House | Pharrell Williams – Happy (Sevag Area-201 Remix)

Pharrell Williams Happy Sevag Area 201 Remix Pharrell Williams   Happy (Sevag Area 201 Remix)The “Happy” remixes are coming and they are coming quickly, but thankfully Sevag lent his talents to the tune. The original is catchy and happy enough to make a man cry, but Sevag gives you a change of pace from what you have been hearing constantly on the radio, TV and elsewhere. He adds some tasteful, bouncy big room with booming synths and well crafted builds. It has already been supported by Nicky Romero, Promise Land and Matisse & Sadko, so you know something is there. Upcoming, Sevag has a tune with Henrix “Latina” that was premiered by Dannic on his radio show that you will want to stay tuned for.

It seems so right that Flume would remix Lorde. Something about her voice and his beats just makes sweet sweet love to my ears. The build up, the drop, the vocals, just everything about this song is fire. I don’t think I need to say more except keep hitting repeat.

Summer can’t come soon enough and today we have Tim Gunter making us want it even more with this brand new remix to Twin Shadow’s Old Love/New Love hit. Tim had a little blurb about the track and how he thought to give it his own spin:
