Grant Bowtie dropped this joyful single out on Monstercat today called “Cloud Nine”. This electronic track has a full sound with a mix of high and low melodies. The bass compliments the higher synths and overall the track sounds nostalgic and fun. Grant Bowtie is from San Diego, and still just in high school. It’s amazing how talented he is for his age, and just in general! He says he’s still searching for his own sound… let’s hope he goes with this one!

After discovering his remix of MØ’s infectious “Don’t Wanna Dance” and consequently being BLOWN AWAY by it, it’s safe to say I was hooked on the Parisian producer, Zimmer. In addition to his collection of both remixes and originals, the self-proclaimed “horizontal disco and feel good house” artist keeps his 45k Soundcloud fans (and growing) at bay by releasing free monthly mixtapes, like any good artist should. This month’s mixtape, as you might have guessed from the title, has a Mediterranean theme to it, which not only means the selected songs transport you right to the white sandy beaches of Croatia or the Greek Isles, but each track has it’s own connection to the southern European region. Press play and take a trip to paradise without having to leave your room ^_^ Tracklist after the break!

Startup labels seem to be all the rage these days. Thanks to the success of independent outlets such as Soulection and Pilerats, to name a few, off-the-radar artists have hit the internet jackpot. Today’s startup spotlight goes to Rooftops Horizon, a label based out of Paris, the city of love and great music. This compilation features tracks from some of our current favorite producers such as Rusty Hook, salute, and Renz, alongside some new names, JL and Romby. Snatch this free download for some blissful listening this Monday evening. (I’ve had “Gold Rush” on repeat for an hour now)

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.
