Chill, Pop | BETSIE GØLD Releases “Birthday Sadness”

Posted by on December 11, 2020

Rising UK based singer and songwriter BETSIE GØLD is back once again with her self-described ‘BITCH PØP’ vibe on a more emotional single “Birthday Sadness”. Capturing more of that same textured and sweeping aesthetic, this new offering sees her in a more intimate light as she swoons and serenades us through this wistful pop stunner. Check out a quote from her on the release below and stream “Birthday Sadness” above now!

I wrote ‘Birthday Sadness’ with Kaity Rae in our first session since lockdown. The track originally started off pretty upbeat with completely different production, but we couldn’t seem to get anything down. The more we spoke about how this year has made having a birthday even more scary because it’s like we’ve had the entire year taken from us with nothing to show for it, the more the lyrics poured out. Kaity re-did the production and the rest came together. We’re constantly led to believe that time is running out and that everything has to be figured out so young. It’s an impossible ideal. Every year (especially one like this) birthdays make you face everything that has or hasn’t changed, good or bad. I miss the years of not being able to sleep because I was so excited for my birthday, because the only thing that mattered was the party, presents and cake.” – BETSIE GØLD

House | CID & CeeLo Green Will Make You A “Believer”

Posted by on June 9, 2017

CID. Unreal producer and DJ. CeeLo Green. Unreal artist and vocalist. They combine forces to deliver an absolute smasher called “Believer” that will have you moving 5 seconds into pressing that play button. CeeLo Green doesn’t always do EDM, but when he does, he does it with CID music. Of the new single, CID said:

“We are living in a time where so many bad things are happening around the world and it’s heartbreaking and discouraging. Despite that I think it’s still important to believe in the power of music. Music can be uplifting even on the darkest days. So especially now, I wanted to release a song that could give people hope and inspire peace and unity.” – CID

A wise choice as we predict “Believer” is going to smash the Spotify charts with its quality production, sunny vibes, and upbeat message. Make sure you use and abuse that play button. We will for weeks to come.

Posted by on June 2, 2016

III Points

III Points Music, Art, & Technology Festival is a newer festival to the market but that doesn’t mean the line up is any less impressive then the other bigger festivals that are coming up! In it’s 4th year running the festival will return to Miami, more specifically the Wynwood area where it started. The versatility in the headliners is what was so appealing to me, with highlights such as Thievery Corporation, M83, Dixon, Flying Lotus, Method Man & Redman, Maya Jane Coles DJ Koze, LCD Soundsystem along with Miami’s best local music acts. III Points stays true to its roots and authenticity as a hyper-local festival, with every stage featuring a local act performing. Check out a quote from the co-founder of the festival below along with the full line up under that! Pick up your tickets here.

“Its beautiful to watch this project come full circle with LCD Soundsystem headlining III Points this year,” says David Sinopoli, co-founder of III Points. “James Murphy was one of the first people to believe in our festival when it was just an idea in 2013. Now in our fourth year, we’re ready to take that next step with some headlining talent, and it just so happened to be the year he was putting the band back together. 2016 is starting to feel cosmically aligned.”

One word: WOW. Elephante’s newest original track, “Black Ivory”, just absolutely blew our minds! Being used to the progressive/electro elements that we usually find in Phante’s tracks, “Black Ivory” goes to show that Elephante is a producer that can defy genres and explore limitless possibilities. While that classic Elephante sound can still be heard, this new original production takes a more “future bass” approach, complete with hard hitting yet melodic drops, energetic bass lines, and also some actual elephant sounds!

Chill | DIME$, A Small Artist With A Not-So-Small Sound

Posted by on September 29, 2015

I stumbled upon DIMES recently and I couldn’t believe what I heard. An artist who has grabbed the attention of the likes of The Chainsmokers, and more, yet his following and plays are so small.

Let’s change that. DIMES is the most exquisite fusion of all the best chill house elements that have been floating around in 2015. If you like anything ranging from Gryffin, Hotel Garuda, BANKS, or Cignature. You will fall completely in love with DIMES.

From “Galantis – Runaway [U&I] (DIMES Remix)” to “The Chainsmokers – Let You Go (DIMES Remix)” and now “Kaskade – Disarm You (DIMES Remix,)” this act knows how to make hit tracks. Listen to his upload on SoundCloud above, it’ll be the best move you make all day.
