Compilation, Electronic | Rooftops Horizon Compilation Vol. 1

Posted by on July 28, 2014

Startup labels seem to be all the rage these days. Thanks to the success of independent outlets such as Soulection and Pilerats, to name a few, off-the-radar artists have hit the internet jackpot. Today’s startup spotlight goes to Rooftops Horizon, a label based out of Paris, the city of love and great music. This compilation features tracks from some of our current favorite producers such as Rusty Hook, salute, and Renz, alongside some new names, JL and Romby. Snatch this free download for some blissful listening this Monday evening. (I’ve had “Gold Rush” on repeat for an hour now)

3. She is a member of TeamSupreme
4. Her single “Super Moon” is a whole new level of dope
5. She’s a badass blonde that makes bangers
6. She has two homebases – Olympia and Los Angeles

Electronic | Midnight Pool Party – Linger

Posted by on April 16, 2014

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.

Jersey Club | Rusty Hook – Get So Fly

Posted by on April 6, 2014

As soon as you hear that iconic riff, you’ll already know what it is – but lemme just tell you to wait a second because this is, quite frankly, even better. As soon as I pressed play on Bordeaux-producer, Rusty Hook’s Baby Bash remix, “Get So Fly,” I straight up got the chills! Imagine the original, except without the cheesy lyrics, with a Jersey Club twist and full of unexpected breaks and pauses that leave you just dying to hear more. In the short amount of time this track has been live via Cosmonostro and Marmorean Records, it has already ran dry of free downloads, but you can still take 4 minutes and 20 seconds to get absolutely lifted, shifted, and higher than the ceiling (you know the rest).

Electro-House | DCUP – Magic

Posted by on December 5, 2013

You know what the best feeling in the world is? Well, one of them, for that matter – when you’re mood and inspiration starts to plateau and then all of a sudden you hear a song that, within seconds, gets your blood rushing again. It’s 1:15pm and I was already three cups of coffee deep and couldn’t seem to shake the zombie feeling when I stumbled upon DCUP’s latest release, “Magic.” I’m a little out of touch with the American audience at the moment (it’s snowing over here in Sweden for the first time so I’m kind of out of touch with everything, tbh) but I think this Melbourne-based producer has been sneaking by, under appreciated and that needs to change. Actually, you might remember DCUP from “We No Speak Americano” back in the day, and you’ll recognize some of those funky latin vibes in “Magic.” But give this one a spin, it’s a bit of a 80’s groove, Duck Sauce-esque, touch of house cocktail with an Australian twist. Just what you need to spice things up.

Chill, Electronic | Låpsley – Pick Me Up (BA?EL Remix)

Posted by on November 29, 2013

Love finding those tracks that absolutely take my breathe away just within the first few seconds of pressing play. This week that award goes to Belgium producer BA?EL and his remix of “Pick Me Up” by the 17-year-old Liverpool-based femme fatale who goes by the name of Låpsley. The original is sweet, subdued track, comparable to a lovechild of Alt-J and XXYYXX or something along those lines.
BA?EL’s remix, however, kicks up the sensual intensity of the original, creating a final product that’s sure to have set the mood (and then some) by the end of your first listen. Catch this free download and keep your eyes on both of these artists, I’ve got good feelings about them.
