I’m big into pop, progressive house, and large women talking to me. Not even joking about that last one, cause I like talking to everyone. I am constantly stocked up on progressive house tracks, but I am not as deep into the pop realm as I’d like to be. I go in a little bit, then out for a brief moment, then back in, then pretty much repeat that for a while. John Cena knows. Smallpools is one of the few who can keep me in there  I’m a huge fan of them – so I was happy to see that they released a new song. “Killer Whales” is great and has the same upbeat and fast paced feel as all their previous stuff. While it may not be their best track, it is still quality and definitely worth a listen for all you indie-pop lovers out there.

Hip-Hop | Aaron Cohen – You Wouldn’t Know (Feat. Alexander Spit) [Prod. Eff.Dope (TribeGvng)]

 You Woul Aaron Cohen   You Wouldnt Know (Feat. Alexander Spit) [Prod. Eff.Dope (TribeGvng)] Facebook | SoundCloud | Twitter

New York City rapper Aaron Cohen went hard with his latest track “You Wouldn’t Know” featuring Alexander Spit, and to be honest there are very few rap records I can listen to on repeat, but when there’s one tune that stands out, it becomes my anthem for the night. Well tonight I can’t help but vibe to the non-chalant, no fux given flow of both Aaron Cohen and Alexander Spit over a beat you can literally picture the sounds haunting the shit out of a dim lit studio late night, early morning, where both MCs recorded their verses. This is a must listen and a must download!

Progressive House | Steve Angello – Wasted Love ft. Dougy from The Temper Trap

Posted by on July 23, 2014

The first single off Steve Angello’s upcoming album is out and it is as awesome as one would expect. The superb vocals and radio ready production destine this song to commercial success, much like how “Don’t You Worry Child” was. It’s not a huge surprise for there to be a song or two from the album that is catered to the mainstream and this is one of them. Even so, it’s a great track and a smart way to reintroduce the world to Steve Angello, the solo artist.

Electronic, Mainstream Remix, Pop | Melanie Martinez — Dollhouse (One Love Remix)

In the not-too-distant past, the production that a rapper could obtain while still positioning themselves as independent artists wasn’t all that important. It was trendy — largely because of Lil Wayne’s Dedication series — for artists to recycle industry beats, and thus they didn’t necessarily need high-quality original production to fuel a career. That tendency has shifted, though, and most successful startups in this market have at least one reliable instrumentalist whose work helps them define their sound. Few, if any, are as gifted and as significant in shaping their overall sound as One Love—best-known as the production half of Kinetics & One Love.

Since K&1L’s critically acclaimed You Are Not Alone released in 2012, One Love has produced for a number of Atlantic Records’ talents, including Neon Hitch and—most recently—Melanie Martinez. Today he’s released his first official remix, to Melanie Martinez’s new single, “Dollhouse”—a song he originally produced as well. While the primary version has accrued over two million views on YouTube already, One Love has utilized the strengths of Melanie’s vocals and reconstructed the darker-themed beat into a summer smash. The increased BPM, coruscating synths, and added melodic qualities of the production entirely change the listening experience, while retaining the meaning of its original. Check out the track below, and follow One Love using the links below.

Videos | Anthony Alexander – Leaving Me Broken

Posted by on July 23, 2014

I love the internet. Every once in a while, you’ll find a gem. Anthony Alexander, a soul singer from California, covers Collin Mcloughlin’s “Broken” from his famed Tears Of Tempo EP with impressive results. While the video only has a few views, I’d keep a serious eye on this young crooner. He’s got serious potential. Did I mention Collin McLoughlin has been killing it lately? Yeah, I’d keep an eye on him too. You’re leavinnnng me brokennnnnn brokennnnn brokeennnnnnn. Still a tune.
