Annnnnnnd… the Rabbit is back, this time getting funky for us. Session 004 is more of a hip-hop/electro-funk influenced mix that is sure to be a great mix to sit by the pool and relax to throughout the remainder of summer. This mix really shows the rabbits diversity in music taste and has us wanting MORE… but, this will have to be on repeat for the next two weeks until Session 005. Enjoy.

Gerry Gonza and Ania Iwinska teamed up recently to create and release a brand new hot, club heavy tune aptly named “Let Me Dip.” Gerry’s sound design is quite evident in this release if you’ve ever listened to any of Thee Cool Cats music before. The vocal sample “let me dip” flows over the synths to create a sort of a trance that will leave you dancing all night. Overall this is a very tight production and great look for the new LA & Paris based house music label Homerun House.

Jack Rabbit is back and as good as ever… The third “session” of this mix series is made up of laidback electronic music that one can’t help but to nod their head to. Following his last two mixes which can be found here and here, this mix has us equally impressed and should help make the work weak more bearable… Looking forward to hearing what Jack Rabbit serves us in another two weeks.

Jack Rabbit Radio – a SoundCloud profile you’ve probably never heard of… but, we’ve been proven that it is one you should definitely get to know. The profile just posted a 30 minute long mix titled “Jack Rabbit Radio | Session 001” and stated that it is the first installment of a new biweekly mix series that showcases the music he is currently listening to… which we love. This first mix is comprised of all future bass, from both larger and smaller artists. With seamless transitions and great taste, we highly recommend you give this mix a listen and stay tuned to see what Jack Rabbit Radio comes up with in his next installment.

FRDM Fest is a festival of the people, held by the people, for the people. This is going to be the biggest 4th of July party in Southern California.

Hosted on the waterfront events park of the Queen Mary, they’re blending the elements of a great 4th of July BBQ with an eclectic lineup of today’s music. All the proceeds from FRDM Fest will be donated to Teen Cancer America, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of teenagers and young adults with cancer. So join them this July 2nd and help them reach their goal of $15,000 donated to Teen Cancer America!

Come Friday, June 10th, Spring Awakening Music Festival (SAMF) will be celebrating its five-year anniversary by throwing a 3-day party with a hefty lineup of artists. In addition to an impressive bill of performers, SAMF has recently revealed the layout of the new festival grounds, which look equally impressive. The festival contains 2 gorgeous stages, 2 tent structures and a silent disco. In years prior the festival took place at Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears… however, for the first time, SAMF will take place at Addams/Medill Park, which is a short 3 miles west of the old venue. The new location and festival grounds allow for more accommodations and a more maneuverable landscape for attendees… an idea that excites us all.

Sometimes you hear an artist and are 7-seconds into the first song, you’re on to the next. Sometimes you hear an artist for the first time and are instantly drawn in. Whether it be the beat, their flow, the lyrics or the message, sometimes you just get that feeling you found something special. A few years back I stumbled across STNDRD, a hip-hop duo out of Hotlanta. Kelechi & Phay, two very talented artists were the talent behind the label. They were clearly motivated (as I quickly confirmed after seeing and hearing “We Want It All“). They were cultured and proud of their diverse backgrounds. They were confident, fun, and full of energy. Most importantly, they could RAP.
Fast forward 2 1/2 years, both artists are still representing STNDRD, but pursuing parallel solo careers. Kelechi was the recipient of $50k after being recognized as the winner of Green Label Sound’s “Open Call” contest. Identified as one of the next talents on the brink of explosion, Kelechief invested that nickel lump right back into his debut album, Before The Quarter. Making valuable industry connections and cosigns along the way, Kelechi has been earning his key and building bridges along the way. “Before the Quarter” is Kelechi’s breakout. 10 tracks, from raw to delicate, Chief flexes appropriately, but never lacks a message. Enjoy the album stream and cop your own copy on iTunes if those first 7-seconds hit you like they hit me.
