House | Meet LA’s 13th Zodiac And Their Brand New “Booty Sweat” Single

Posted by on June 14, 2017


Meet 13th Zodiac. LA’s next big house duo that you need to get to know. We received their brand new “Booty Sweat” single this week from ItsNoRequests and absolutely love it. In fact, we can’t get enough. We’ve been abusing the repeat button on Soundcloud since it released. When asked about the meaning of their brand new “Booty Sweat” single, 13th Zodiac said:

“Booty Sweat is a track that is inspired by a global pandemic club-goers face today. The track itself is driven by a thumpy, yet groovy bass line, and followed by a low pitched voice that cuts through the mix to lock down the groove. It is guaranteed to instill perspiration between moist thighs worldwide.”

Available on all your favorite streaming platforms, “Booty Sweat” is the first release of many from the LA duo dropping this summer. Get invested. Keep an eye. 13th Zodiac is a group on the rise.

Bass | Listen To The Western & Eastern Culture Collide With Koinu’s “Gainax Bounce”

Posted by on April 21, 2016

Kpop and Japanese culture are coming together stronger than ever – Koinu’s sound is at an abstract intersection where popular styles of western electronic music and the recent global explosion of the tradionally eastern music trends collide.

Genres like Kawaii and artists like Porter Robinson have showcased snapshots of Western culture, in particular North America, slowing getting turned on to eastern music trends. Over time, it’s only natural that something like Koinu would be born our of these colliding cultures. I suppose we got lucky Varien filled in the gap, given his experience and deeper themes his artistry typically displays.

Koinu’s latest “Gainax Bounce” is an interesting ratio of bass and eastern vibes – a unique notch in the belt of releases the solo artist has pushed in the last few weeks.

If you like stand-out meaning and effort behind a sound, Koinu is your guy.

Mix | La Griffe – Les Inseparables

Posted by on April 17, 2014

If you pride yourself in being coooool or trendy, or having a unique, underground taste in music then you just need to go ahead and hold your horses because what I’m about to show you about is going to rock your world. Meet La Griffe, a DJ duo comprised of two brothers, one based in France and the other in the Big Apple. Taking into account these guys therefore have two major global music outlets on lock, you can only imagine their exquisite taste and even more exquisite library of jams. This mixtape, which is apparently the 4th Volume of the “L’Amour en Crescendo” Collection, features an assortment of songs, beats, and remixes I quite frankly haven’t heard anywhere else. Don’t be turned away if you feel a little uncertain about the mixtape at first, just take a deep breath and you’ll find yourself grooving before you know it. My recommendation? While getting ready to go out tonight or anytime this long weekend, light some candles, make yourself a cocktail, download this, turn it on and let it take you away.

Deep House, Melbourne Bounce | Happy Endings – Shy Guy

Posted by on February 17, 2014

Throughout my time studying and traveling here in Europe, I’ve somehow managed to meet heaps of Aussies everywhere I go. I’ll admit I love their company so I don’t mind but at times it makes me wonder if they’re in the works of some secret, global takeover of sorts…. Anyways, today’s first track, “Shy Guy,” was brought to my attention by word of mouth from a Sydney native whom I encountered in my hostel in Berlin last week. I was pleasantly surprised to give it a listen later on and discover that it was in fact worth a second, third, and fourth listen after that. Happy Endings, although lacking almost any kind of background information, seems to be a deep house-producing duo led by Melbourne Bounce star Fat Blake. There’s something unique about this track compared to a lot of other songs from this genre that I’ve been listening to that I can’t quite put my finger on, but that makes me all the more excited to see what they come out with next.
