Playlists | Playlist #5

Guest Post from Evora:

This week I moved away from the melodic/electro dubstep because being in mid-finals grind (my school is on the quarter system), my mind craves melodies that are consistent in vocals, beat, and style. I love huge drops when I’m hitting the gym or out on a run, but when I study I need music that provides the “white noise” needed to block out all distractions. Whether it is a paper, quiz, or midterm, use this playlist to power through those long weeks ahead!

Guest Post from Evora:

Sometimes you just have those bad days and there’s really no way to escape it. It’s easy to turn to the dark side and dwell on whatever that overtaking you. However, I always taught that you are your worst enemy and I’ve always used music as my outlet to relax. If it’s a bad midterm, a stressful group project, or a fight with a girl I’ve always resorted to music to calm me down. I know this is the case for many of you so I created a playlist this week to motivate, invigorate, and revive those good feelings that have been locked away. One of my favorites in this playlist, Firefly by White Panda, helps feel a sense of relief, happiness and return to normalcy. I hope you can use this playlist as an outlet if you are having a stressful day, energize yourself and conquer whatever obstacles might be thrown in your way.

**Guest Post by Evora**

My love for FreshNewTracks and electronic music in general started before I came out to California for college. It was summer 2010, and I was looking at music blogs to find some fresh sounds to blast in my dorm room before nights out or headphones while cranking out homework in the library. FreshNewTracks was one that many of my friends back East suggested. I visited the site, downloaded a few remixes by Kaskade and my music life was changed.

Since that time three years ago, I have been a frequent (3 times a day) visitor of FreshNewtTracks, but have also branched out to a variety of other sites to find the newest electro, dubstep, trance and everything in between. My musical taste is quite broad, my favorites are Seven Lions, Adventure Club, Porter, Morgan Page, Stumbleine, and everything that drops harder than Joe Frazier after being socked by Ali. After getting numerous messages, emails, and texts from friends in the last year asking for newest music in my library, I decided it was time to share. I’ve teamed up with Chazzz to start a weekly playlist, and I will be posting my top tracks of the week every monday evening on FNT. I have a music bank full of stuff I cant wait to show all you. I promise I will find the best sounds to make your ears wetter than the streets of Seattle.

Since this is the first weekly playlist, I will start with my all time top 5 songs and 5 new songs. I wanted to share my go-to songs with you guys to give you a feel for my sound and also introduce you to 5 new jams. Enjoy!


Weekly Mix #1:



House | Radiohead – Codex (Hannes Fischer Edit)

Guest Post by Si

I’ve always felt like ambient house was a good genre to kick back and listen to while my mind is occupied elsewhere. Hannes Fischer’s edit of Codex can be that track if you want, but personally I find myself enjoying this song with my full attention. The bass is deep and melodic, and progresses seamlessly with a hint of piano and sax playing in the background. Like with most originals, vocals come in pretty early, but Fischer makes you wait for it, and rightfully so. As soon as Thom Yorke’s unmistakable voice kicks in, you get the feeling like this is what you’ve been waiting for the whole time, without feeling like it was missing anything before.

Videos | Joseph SoMo & Cody Tarpley- Drake Medley (Cover)

Posted by on February 14, 2012

Denton, Texas based talent, Joseph Somo, is back at it again with another exceptional video that covers stand out tracks from Drake’s sophomore effort “Take Care”. With the release of this new video, I’m convinced that Joseph SoMo and Cody Tarpley are the Drake and 40 of the cover game right now. Absolutely unstoppable. If SoMo keeps making covers like this, he won’t be able to go out of his own house without a flashmob of tween girls giving chase. Must be tough to be him.
