Electro, Electronic, Future Funk, Future House | Listen as Take A Daytrip Ventures to Los Angeles in “Calling”
Posted by TwirlyHatMatt on July 28, 2015
The duo Take A Daytrip (formerly Daytrip) have taken a small hiatus from their travels of the world. Perhaps they were homesick, perhaps they were tirelessly in the studio, but regardless, they are back.
Today, Take A Daytrip ventures out to the sunny shores of Los Angeles. Pulling inspiration from funk and dance music alike, Take A Daytrip create a unique sound spectrum of intense synths and powerful guitar.
Like most of their solo work to date, the song tells a story and through the twisted vocals and highs and lows of the song we can pull out emotion and meaning. Read what the song means to each of the members, and listen to “Calling” below.
“‘Calling’ was inspired by our time working on music in Los Angeles last fall. We started to discover that what we’d spent years doing for fun was beginning to make people beyond our friends and family take notice. Exciting opportunities, challenges, and distractions all presented themselves. We realized we’d have to sacrifice some things we love in order to turn our passion into a full time job.” – DenZ
“The track starts with the excitement and the feeling of purpose when you find your calling, but ends in the solace and recognition of what you’re forced to leave behind.” – Hugh Cosby

First order of business, let this track play out, this tune builds into an arrangement of sounds that you hit in the face like a guitar solo at a rock show, and you’re tripping on acid, that’s a lot of emotions to grimace. The word is, SMLE is back with “Every Chance You Get” and the volume on my headphones aren’t loud enough, I want this to blare it’s so good. The guitar on this bad boy is a monster, press play, all the cool kids are doing it, this is a must listen!

Nowadays, “Where Are U Now” remixes are like jelly bean flavors – there are so many of them, there are a couple of bad ones, but nearly everyone has their own opinion of their favorite one. The latest remix of Jack U’s hit with the Biebs comes from Chet Porter, a Toronto native who has delivered stunning future flips of Ryan Hemwsworth, Zedd, and Porter Robinson. Porter’s remix is unique because he didn’t take on the original track, rather he chose to re-work Ember Island’s ethereal cover – to great success. Ember Island’s heavenly croons provide the perfect partner for Porter’s beautiful synth melodies and jaw-dropping production.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Chill, Electro, Electronic, Hip-Hop | HiFadility Calls An Iso With Lauryn Hill On His Edit Of “Ready or Not”
Posted by BIGLIFE on June 26, 2015
HiFadility dropped another exciting edit, an isolation of Lauryn Hill’s vocals from The Fugee’s “Ready or Not” track with a very luxurious hip-hop/world instrument electronic sound. What really makes this track worth supporting is the thoughtfulness involved in the arrangement of quality sounds, and the attention used in choosing the vocal arrangement. HiFadility is part of a movement that is bringing consciousness back into popular culture.
HiFadility, whose tagline is “peace, love and prosperity”, seems to ask for intention and awareness out of life that he also likes to deliver within his music, allowing him to create really intricate and interesting pieces. Before releasing this track, he asked himself the question of why he decides to make, release and engage in the music industry. He replied with the idea of: “What does make creating music worth the while is the mystery.” Later that night, at the release of the Lauryn Hill track, he simply posted an infinity sign, “?”, indicating the infinite nature of our being and sound, the thrilling mystery of music, and how it magically touches our soul.
The ability to make chill bangers, songs that are laid back but still get you pumped up, is pretty unique, so make sure to check out this track, it’s just in time for the summer feels. HiFadility will be releasing more videos and tracks in relation to this concept project, The Queens EP, over the duration of the summer, so be sure to follow HiFadility on his social media, soundcloud, tumblr, twitter, for more gems.
