Electro, Trap | Electric Mantis – Flips And Flops, Drips And Drops

Posted by on November 27, 2013

It’s finals time over here in the land of the Swedes but I’m taking a little coffee break to share some music that’s been helping me knock out all my work. Oregon based producer Electric Mantis brings us this delightful electro-trap track appropriately titled “Flips And Flops, Drips And Drops,” perfect for those currently listening to artists along the likes of Flume and L D R U. In fact, I have to credit one of the hottest music blogs on the internet right now for bringing this track into my life – that being Djemba Djemba’s Soundcloud Stream. You can read all about Electric Mantis’ success story via Reddit here, meanwhile I’ve got to get back to reading the past three weeks worth of assignments. Whoops! ¯\_(?)_/¯

Trap | Benzi – Girl Trapz (Volume Four)

Posted by on November 26, 2013

Benzi is baaaack with another one of his signature, highly acclaimed Girl Trapz mixtapes. This Girl Trapz is special not just because its tracklist is a stolid 10 or that it makes girls (and boys!) want to take their clothes off BUT because almost all of the featured songs were produced exclusively for this set. That includes contributions from the Girl Trapz remix contest Benzi held leading up to the release. So I raise my glass to you Benzi, not a single song disappoints. Snatch this free download and let it take you away on an hour-long euphoric, ass-shaking journey.

Electronic | Flume & Chet Faker – What About Us

Posted by on November 21, 2013


Flume & Chet Faker’s EP is just around the corner, and in advance of the November 26th release date the collab has decided to give us another enticing taste of what’s to come. Languorous vocals and a hypnotic bassline make this one a totally intoxicating wind-down-at-the-end-of-the-night kind of listen. And for what it’s worth, Flume just took to Facebook to declare that “What About Us” is the single track he’s most excited for.

So there you have it. The 26th can’t come soon enough.

You may know Chet Faker from their most notable singles “I’m Into You” and “No Diggity” and Flume from his crazy productions known all over the internet, but together they make an amazing music team. “Drop the Game” is their lead track off their upcoming collaborative EP ‘Lockjaw’, and it makes the wait all more worth it. Dropping some intense, high quality visuals for the track was definitely the way to go, making the November 26th EP release hyped up as ever. The stream is up on Future Classic, Flume’s record label, and will be available on iTunes starting Nov. 26 along with the rest of the EP.

 Well folks, it’s been real. Tomorrow, Sept 22, marks the official end of summer 2013. In honor of the change in season, I present to you the second installment of my very own Warm Air mixtapes. A mix designed to ease the transition of swimsuits to sweaters and piña coladas to pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha lattes. A mix to warm you up in the cool autumn breeze, to relive the sweet memories of the past few months, and keep your spirits up and motivated as you face challenges in school, work, and everyday life. So close your eyes, and let this mix take you back to that moment on the beach where you dug a hole in the sand with your toes as you watched the sun set, or when you indulged in the most amazing 4th of July BBQ of your life, or drove around recklessly with the top down and the radio up, or the night you watched an epic fireworks spectacle with your boo thang wrapped up tight in your arms.

Remember, just because the summer is over doesn’t mean the fun is. Oh no, 2013 can and will go out with a bang. With 3 months left to go, it’s time the real fun begins.

I’d also like to dedicated this mix to one of my most beautiful friends as she turns 21 today. Hope you enjoy this mixtape as you take your first legal swigs of alcohol today, take an extra big one for me <3
