Alternative, Indie | Scott Helman Gets Emotional in “Papa” Music Video

Posted by on August 6, 2020

“Papa” is the first piece of music off of Scott Helman’s forthcoming Nonsuch Park – an album series – will be released on September 4. Papa” is a new single and music video that shows home videos of Helman and his family over the years, and also shows his emotional reactions to some of the clips. The song was dedicated to his late grandfather. Check out a quote from the rising artist below and watch his video above now. Keep your eyes peeled for his upcoming album series, Nonsuch Park, due out on September 4th!

“This album is mostly about me – my changes, my growth, my hardships, my celebrations, my fears, my courage and my love,” says Scott. “It encapsulates many of the winding roads of my life, how they’ve diverged and converged to create a tapestry, and it documents the lessons that tapestry has taught me. If each person has a sanctuary within – a place they can return to where things make sense, where the tides are kind, where colours are bright and their lives feel meaningful – I think we all have a physical destination too where those things manifest. For me that place was the large park just down the road from my Papa’s house in Sutton, UK – Nonsuch Park. It was here where we would walk and cackle at awful jokes, lean in for the stories, make peace with our busy lives and draw meaning from the lessons we had learned since our last visit (made all the more powerful by the fact that we only had a couple more days together). If my past works have been displays of discovery, this work is a declaration – a declaration of love, meaning, questions and truth, and it is all dedicated to you, Papa. Thank you for helping me piece together the fragments of my life and giving me the space to do it.”

So this doesn’t happen everyday. A mysterious Demur has released pretty interesting artwork we assume will be paired with lots of music soon. So far, a few pieces of artwork have surfaced from this person; shitting on six figure DJs and their pre-recorded lifestyle and antics. Today, Demur released his first song. A tune that also embraces rebellion and changing the status quo. No one knows who he is, but fans comment that DeadMau5 may be behind it, nothing is confirmed.demur-hardwell-1024x768

Progressive House, Videos | The Chainsmokers ft. SirenXX – Kanye (Video)

Posted by on September 8, 2014

Like Kanye the person, The Chainsmokers are used to playing shortened festival sets (E Zoo last Sunday). The similarities end there. The Chainsmokers rendition of Kanye has become a hit, not on the accidental and obnoxious level of #SELFIE, but impressive considering it is just their second original to hit the interwebz. Peep the video and feel like Kanye.

Two Fridays ago in New York it monsooned. Not your average everyday, downpour with the occasional flash of lightning, but a serious cloth soaking, 100% humidity state of affairs that created deceptive “puddles” that would envelop your entire lower leg up to your knee. Despite this and a 4 hour flight delay because of it, The Bixel Boys got to Webster Hall to play alongside the big man himself (he is actually a rather tall and imposing figure), Tchami.

So me hoarse from yelling over the music and a busted voice from a week of tough allergies and a cold, managed to get out some ridiculous questions to the guys and they gave me some great answers with Tchami “Untrue” blaring in the background.

Live City - Slingshot

Live City have been on tear lately and it culimates in the release of “Slingshot” via Tommie Sunshine’s Brooklyn Fire Recordings. Their relationship with Tommie goes well beyond a few signed records, they have done a ton of tracks together and Tommie has been a sensei to them. This acid influenced fireball has been supported by some bug names like Marcus Schossow, Sander van Doorn and Benny Benassi all supporting in person. Grab this tune and head out to see them at Slake on the 18th if you are in NYC.

Chill, Dubstep | James Egbert – Exit Wounds (Murtagh Remix)

First off, I would just like to apologize for the scarcity of my posts. A few weeks ago I gained access to a Brazzers account and my life has been in shambles ever since. Not only that, but a few days ago I accidentally checked out the new guy at my work. He had long hair and was wearing a lululemon sweater so there was really nothing I could do there. It was crazy. Also, as if that wasn’t enough, my mom bought me candy cane scented hand soap but it doesn’t really smell like candy canes. It smells like how I imagine a candy cane would smell like after it had been sitting on the street for a few weeks and then thrown at my face by a smelly person.

 

In addition to wondering why Taylor Swift is always kissing a different guy in her music videos and how I wish I was one of them, there has been one other thing on my mind for the past few days and that has been this song. It is not often a song opens with 2 minutes of atmospheric piano and slowly building strings before switching gears entirely and becoming a chillstep track but that is what Murtagh did with his remix of James Egbert’s “Exit Wounds”. While I do think the intro could have used maybe an extra synth or two to liven it up a bit, it is still incredibly cinematic and well done. The uniqueness of it and the fact that it’s free makes this a track worth checking out.
