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:

Girl Fire | LARCY – Locked Up

Posted by on February 15, 2014


When super manager Stefan Jobe sends me new music, I know it’s going to be something serious. Dubbed “the next face of vocal EDM”, Larcy continue to impress with her second Prince Fox produced release. If this is any indicator of Larcy’s trajectory, I’d say she’s an artist to keep an eye on. Watch the video above and grab the free download below. “Locked Up” will sweep you off your feet.

Girl Fire, Pop | TRIPL & ELIAD – BAILANDO FT. LILA (RADIO EDIT)

Posted by on August 29, 2012


So I’ve got this friend in Israel. His name is Shlomo Jamil. Even though we’ve never met, we talk like every single day. We have a hard time understanding each other sometimes, but we communicate via sharing links to music back and forth. He has a passion for music just like I do. He’s basically the Israeli version of me. I’ve always thought “music is a universal language” is such a cliche catch-phrase, but in this case it actually applies. He hits me up tonight, tells me to listen to this. I don’t even understand the lyrics but this is the epitome of girl fire.

So, here’s the deal with TripL & Eliad’s breakout third “Bailando single. The Tel-Aviv production team “TripL” produced it and it interpolates elements from the famed 1997 “Bailando” by “Paradisio”, featuring vocals from Lila. I can already see myself crushing the dance floor in all my white awkwardness. Power pointing towards all the baddest b*tches in the room. Bailando. Caliente. Dale.

Girl Fire, Pop, Videos | Justin Bieber – As Long As You Love Me ft. Big Sean

Posted by on August 1, 2012


Did the Bieber do it again or did the Beiber do it again? Just sleeping with Michael Madson’s daughter while he’s in the house like it’s no big deal. Sure, he gets beat up by a career criminal slash gaudy gold jewelry wearing bad guy. The balls on this kid though. And the dance moves. Oh, the dance moves. The swaggie is literally dripping off his $900 Lanvin sneakers. Vintage Biebs. I wonder how Selena feels though. She has to watch this and cringe. She’s like 18, right? It’s common knowledge 18 year old girls can’t be in a relationship without an unhealthy amount of jealousy. I can imagine he’s going to be in the dog house for months. Doesn’t matter though. It’s Bieber’s world and we’re just living in it.

Electro, Girl Fire | Danny Olson & Adam Nello – Both Of Us (Remix) (Ft. Missy Modell)

 Danny Olson & Adam Nello   Both Of Us (Remix) (Ft. Missy Modell)

It’s no secret, I’m a sucker for a bit of Girl Fire. So what exactly is Girl Fire? Well, I’m glad you asked…basically its any track that makes ladies dancefloor hungry, and typically includes some kind of female vocal. There is no doubt in my mind that the current king of Girl Fire has to be Danny Olson… his recent remix to Nelly Furtado’s Big Hoops was an absolute bomb.

For his latest creation, Danny has teamed up with Adam Nello and Missy Modell to conquer Taylor Swift, Both of Us. Needless to say, it was a success, so check it out..

Girl Fire, Pop | R.I.O. feat. U-Jean – Summer Jam

Posted by on July 11, 2012


Even though R.I.O is extremely one-dimensional, hokey, and has terrible marketing, I can’t get enough of his singles. He keeps putting out hit after hit after hit. I don’t even know how he does it. All I know is that this is pure girl fire and I’ll be jamming out to it at the stop light with my windows up.

Electronic, Girl Fire, Pop | Ellie Goulding – Hanging On (feat. Tinie Tempah)

Ellie Goulding 450x239 Ellie Goulding   Hanging On (feat. Tinie Tempah)

Let me level with you: I’ve got a serious girl crush on Ellie Goulding. I love her music, I love her style, I love the fact that she’s a badass runner and I love what she does with her hair. Still, I’m always freshly taken aback every time she comes out with a new release. Her unique talent has a way of catching me off guard and reasserting itself whenever I listen to one of her songs for the first time. And today was one of those moments: her stunning, emotional collaboration with Tinie Tempah, which just dropped a few hours ago and which will presumably be featured on her upcoming album, is pretty much guaranteed to give you chills and tug at your heart strings. Ellie’s distinctive voice is positively otherworldly on those high notes and I’m loving the way the chilled-out bass gets intense after the drop in the chorus. Check out “Hanging On” below and pick up the free download through Soundcloud’s email unlock program.

Sidenote: not really sure what Tinie Tempah is doing on this — I’m pretty ambivalent about his verse and think it detracts from the ethereal vibe of the song…but whatever. Viva Ellie.
