Electronic, Indie, Pop | Kavalier – Better (ft. Elias)

Posted by on August 7, 2014

After a beautiful cover for the summer smash “Rather Be”, the boys of Kavalier have returned with their first original, “Better”. The song is another upbeat and radio-ready single. However, despite the feeling that this song could fit perfectly in Top 40s music, it deviates from the all-to-familiar formula that clogs the airwaves nowadays.

The track features vocal help from Elias, a friend and previous collaborator of Kavalier. Just two songs deep, the duo is sure to make some splashes these coming months, so stay tuned and enjoy!

FNT was first to put you on to ACADEMY, and their latest single “This View” off their EP Moving Methods is one you’re not going to want to miss! The guys had sent me this track a few days back, and I’ve been so deep into deep house music, I wasn’t ready for it, but this Thursday morning seemed like the right time to press play, and the quality of the sound is what brought me in. Their ditty like, laid back production, produced by Sean Kongery, overlayed with their trademark reggae/ska vocals makes for the perfect rainy day Summer jam. This is a must listen and a must download!

RnB | Sean Kongery – Aware (ft. Elias)

Posted by on November 6, 2013

The beatsmith formally known as Sean Kongery is back. This time, the LA up and comer teams up with fellow Cali-vocalist Elias to create a smooth, soothing -I have just coined the word smoothing as an adjective for this song- ballad. In-house video team, Lake Effect Films, has yet again out done himself and absolutely blows me away with the story he managed to create behind the song.

Sean is soon to be at the key player in pop production, so it’ll be exciting to see the future singles as well as placements he’ll be getting these next couple months. For the time being, enjoy the song and video!

Also, the sampling of “Mr. Sandman” in the first few seconds of the visual is a fantastic touch.

Ambient, Chill | Sean Kongery – Paper

Posted by on September 16, 2013

I’m excited to present to you today a beautifully constructed instrumental piece from the ever-so-talented, Sean Kongery. Although, I had heard Kongery produce other artist’s music and even unleash a few EDM remixes here and there, I had yet to hear a full out instrumental track made for “vibing”, “chilling” and other cool “ing” words.

As completely and utterly over-used that Biggie vocal samples are, Mr. Kongery managed to “wow” me yet again and put an interesting spin on the King of rap’s words.

Perhaps just as stunning as the song itself is the video done by Lake Effect Films. These guys pulled out all of the stops and really made a product worth sharing. Enjoy the video above and catch the audio below if you’re about that life.

Electro, Trap | Krewella – Live For The Night (Sean Kongery & Klavay Remix)

Since it’s been a while since I’ve heard any attention-grabbing trap remixes, I figured Sean Kongery and Klavay’s would be a nice little re-introduction. The producer duo teamed up to tackle Krewella’s esteemed “Live For The Night”, a single off of their forthcoming album Get Wet. Sean and Klavay added some pretty massive drops jam packed with alien-sounding synths and chopped vocals.

The original is without a doubt difficult to remix because of it’s intricacy and distinct sound, however, the pair made it work and put a nice new spin on it.
