Hip-Hop | Spencer Joles – Long Nights

 Spencer Joles   Long Nights

I’ve got this sort of, hip-hop-fairy-godfather type of best friend that drops in every now and then to enlighten me with only the best underground hip hop on the rise. For the past few years, he’s been the one to introduce me to everyone from Afu-Ra to G-Eazy, Blue Scholars to Logic, Black Element to even Aloe Blacc. Need I continue? So recently when he told me one of his own cousin’s picked up producing, I knew it had to be good. Everyone, meet Milwaukee’s own, Spencer Joles. “Long Nights” is a v trill track to get lost in, with mellow vibes and steady rhymes throughout. I’ve also included his newest release, “Cosmic Dialect,” which demonstrates this guy’s commitment to steady releases as well as testing out all different production styles. This young rapper already has a pretty stacked selection of * free * original work and covers on his Soundcloud so take a minute to dive in and check it out.

Electronic | Disclosure – Latch (Lido Remix)

 Disclosure   Latch (Lido Remix)

Less than a week ago I posted a Disclosure remix by up and comer cln. and in doing so, highlighted the importance of originality in these ubiquitous Disclosure remixes in order for them to break the surface, hit the big time, soar to the top of the Hype Machine charts, whatever. After hearing just a mere preview of Lido’s remix, it all became clear to me why this was one of the most anticipated Disclosure remixes in a minute. The Norwegian producer (not pointing any fingers this time) has made a name for himself after planting a seed in the scene long ago with his Cashmere Cat, “Kiss Kiss” remix (for you OG fans out there) and most recently, his rework of Yung Lean’s “Gatorade.”  This “Latch” remix is one of the more light-hearted, warm and fuzzy ones out there, perfect for any setting or time of day. Because, you know, for a second there I almost thought I never wanted to hear “Latch” again for the rest of the forseeable future but Lido really brought back the magic from the first time I heard this track back to life. Keep your eyes peeled for Lido’s EP release via Pelican Fly and your fingers crossed for it to be sooner rather than later.


UPDATE: Apparently Soundcloud was just not having it with this remix, so instead you’ll have to listen to it hear via this slightly sketchy Rinse FM rip, but hey at least it’s something.

The boys of the summer sound are back with their 25th installment of the Solé fixtape!

If you’re not familiar with Belgium native, Aeroplane, now is a great time to hop on board with his sound. Coming off a hot weekend at Coachella, Aeroplane is an artist to watch in 2014.

I know I’m usually late to the party, but I had no clue Mariah Carey had a new single, nor that Fedde Le Grand remixed it, but somehow “You’re Mine (Eternal)” Fedde Le Grand’s remix managed to make it to my ears, and I’m glad it did. Ultranauts (those who were at Ultra music festival) can you confirm if this track was played at Ultra? I can only imagine this tune hitting the spot in a festival setting, heck, it’s hitting the spot in my headphones at my desk! No doubt about it this is a must listen!

Electronic | Midnight Pool Party – Linger

 Midnight Pool Party   Linger

Well folks, it’s the middle of April which means it took me an entire four months to find a new artist to start obsessing over (2014, get your shit together!). But it seems my hunting has come to a end, well temporarily, of course, as I would like to introduce you all to Midnight Pool Party. This band comes from where else other than the down under: Sydney, to be exact. Their style is summarized by a contagious, feel good, retro disco sound, or better put in their own words, a “potent cocktail of funky guitar licks, infectious keys and swoonsome choruses.” Their latest single, “Linger” and all its remixes (especially Luke Million’s) is a great starting place to fall in love with these party people, and once you’re ready for more, you can catch up with me over on their Miami Horror “Real Slow” remix as I’ve had it on repeat for about a week now. They’ve got their tracks available for free download so you can cop them, play them for your friends, and all dance until you drop.
