Electro-House, House | Lektrique Goes 80’s Retro With Vibrant New EP

Posted by on December 1, 2017

Lektrique has had an amazing 2017. The Belgian producer toured the US for the first time and has grown Kannibalen Radio as one of the best tastemaking music podcasts on the web. Not to mention he’s released some incredible tunes, including his latest project that features two 80’s inspired hits. TURBO sees Lektrique bring his electro sound with new flash and flare, while NEON sees him breaking genre bounds and slowing down the BPMs from TURBO. Together these two tracks are magnificent, lending themselves to be easily synced for a major Hollywood sci-fi. Don’t be surprised if that ends up happening!

Review | RiFF RAFF – NEON iCON

Posted by on June 19, 2014

I like RiFF RAFF. It’s no secret. And not in that ironic “hipster” way. I find him infinitely fascinating, and can’t help but cheer for him. Sure, he’s polarizing. Many love him and many hate him. What you have to respect about RiFF RAFF is that he’s not afraid to be his own man. He’s original, hilarious, full of contradictions, and isn’t afraid to live outside the box.

He’s come a long way since his first appearance on “G’s To Gents”. Many dismissed him as a novelty artist, destined to make laughable cameos on World Star. Strangely, Diplo discovered his videos, signed him, and here we are. Come June 24th, RiFF’s appropriately titled “NEON iCON” album drops via Mad Decent, and is arguably the most heavily anticipated record to release in 2014.

RIFF RAFF’s brand of hip-hop is a friendly one. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, which is a large part of the appeal. There’s something for everyone in RIFF’s music, which is a large reason why he’s been so successful up to this point. Somehow, his music is enjoyed by impressionable young white female teenagers, hip-hop purists, and people who write for Vice and hang out in Brooklyn.
