The Chainsmokers continue with their rapid pace of releases with a remix to The Colourist’s “Fix This”. It has a similar same vibe as many of their previous indie-house tracks but instead of the light, cheery sound that is usually a custom to them, it has a bit of a darker tone. It is an official remix but the label told them they didn’t want the song available for sale or free download so as of right now, it is streaming only.

I’m interrupting my regularly scheduled deep/tech house programming to deliver your ears some absolutely gorgeous indie-pop from one of D.C.’s newest and brightest songbirds. Back from #DTLA after four years at USC, 22 year-old Naimah brings a lyrical, dreamy touch to the two wonderfully assured productions below. The haunting “Wolf & I” — not an Oh Land cover, mind you — is simultaneously delicate and warm, thanks to stirring vocals and a languid yet evocative arrangement. “Bittersweet Refrain” features similarly tight vocal harmonies and heady instrumental builds, but the main highlight is really Naimah’s voice — which has a distinctly ethereal quality without sacrificing power. Par excellence. Naimah will soon be releasing her debut EP Reverie, so this is surely not the last you’ll be hearing from her — in fact, I think it’s safe to say that this is just the beginning.

This young boy is a problem, you should call it in.
Wordplay on fire. Arguably my favorite JB record to date.
Jim Morrison, Christopher Wallace, Bob Marley, Kanye West, Chris Zarou. Boom, album coming very soon.

The duo that makes up Academy is back with another chill laid back record called “Catch My Vibe.” Though in my opinion not as catchy as their latest release “Fine By Me” , they stay true to their vibe with a groovy guitar line, and a reggae flow on the vocals that could be compared to Sublime. This is track 2 from the guys, and I’m still impressed, keep it up! This is a must listen, and a must download!

Jon Bellion takes a step back to reflect on the spectrum of life. The object being tugged by two forces; family and fame. As Jon’s presence builds, so does the pressure from surrounding socialites. “New York Soul” tells just that. A mellow, piano driven production by Jon himself provides the foundation for his soulful moving script. GRVTY is once again the wizard behind the lens, directing a simple, but very powerful visual representation.
No download yet, but be patient as Jon has promised an album before year end!

I’ve been listening to ”Fine By Me” by the Academy for a few days, and the truth is it’s a great record. It has a reggae flavor and a dose of retro-funk, I’m feeling it. In my opinion, this hook is a hit, so damn catchy, just a cool vibe. The band is a duo Evan and Eli from Rhode Island whom are currently residing in Los Angeles, and Boston. Hopefully they put out some new tracks some time soon, it’s a great sound! Must listen and must download!
