After lighting up the country with their Warning Signs tour, Timeflies will be back in the studio, clocking the hours (pun intended) for their debut full length album. I can’t speak first hand on every tour stop, but based on their performance in Boston, it’s without question the level of production going into each and every one of their live shows has skyrocketed since the last time I saw them. Lights, fog, more lights, huge sound, energy, live freestyles, and much more of everything on an even larger scale.
The video above is a compilation, chopped up and blended together by Mike O’Brien Films, of several live performances of their radio ready single, “SMFWU”. Without question a fan favorite anthem off of their recent EP, Warning Signs, but this visual gives you an idea of how live these shows get.
Grab the EP below and check out a few photos from Timeflies homecoming show in Boston.

This summer I shared this track “Bon Voyage” by Marlene, a Swedish pop artist, and called out for remixes, considering the acapella was up for free download. Fast forward a few months and my call was answered with 4 official remixes by Niklas Bergwall, Thomas Eriksen, 1987, and Rambo Hollywood. Out of all the remixes, the one that stood out to me the most was 1987′s. 1987 toned down the vocals, and slowed the track down overall giving it a deep house feel. This is Marlene’s first single, and I’m excited to hear more from her. This is a must listen!

Last month I featured a remix by SG Lewis of UK artist Patrice and I made sure to let him know to keep in touch. He hit me up with this original track, and I’m not going to lie, at first it took me a few plays to get into it, but after the 4th or 5th play it grew on me. From the 80′s pop influenced production to Patrice’s unique vocals, this track makes for a chill pop record filled with passion and soul. This is a must listen, happy Monday!

Feels like forever since the last time I enjoyed a song with some Japanese-Pop influence, never imagined it would be this addicting, sugary Drum & Bass. Listening to this track reminds me of the first time I heard Mord Fustang’s “Lick The Rainbow”, it’s obviously not the same style but the way the progression and melody play out together puts me into an incredible euphoric instrumental trip. This is just one of those tracks that never stops giving.

Australian duo Bombs Away hits us with their new video for their latest single “Better Luck Next Time.” BLNT has more of a progressive sound than what we’re used to from the guys, with a catchy melodic vocal chorus, and their trademark verses. Still working their way to the American soil, Bombs Away are a household name in the land down under, remixing for the likes of Nicky Romero, Calvin Harris, and Daft Punk, so it’s only a matter of time until their sound makes their way to the US. I believe this one might be the one that takes them there. Enjoy, and let them know, “better luck next time!” This is a must download!

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.

No clue who this Bo Saris guy is, where he came from, and how come he’s not bigger than he should be, but this track “Little Bit More” is refreshing and has potential to be a huge radio hit. If you’re fan of Bruno Mars, and that Mo-Town sound that’s been making a come back, this track is for you. Who knew a white boy had so much soul? This is a must listen!
