Electronic, Trap | Silver Medallion – Xanaxland (prod. DJ Fresh Direct) [Free EP]

Posted by on December 14, 2012

What is Xanaxland? Here’s is a defintion courtesy of Silver Medallion:

Xanaxland [zan-ex land]
1. A place where youth, despair and love collide.
2. A place inhabited by a generation fueled by prescribed emotions.
3. The angst fueled dance culture of the metropolis.
4. Musical collaboration between Silver Medallion & DJ Fresh Direct.

This latest project from Silver Medallion with production from DJ Fresh Direct lets the constrictions of genre go to create a indie rock trap psychedelic house project that they can just call their music. Comprised of four excellent track including the previous leaks “Hey Cinderella” and “Money Can’t Buy”, the project spans from pop, trap to even a little rock. The more rock-oriented track “Burn” is definitely a very different sound from what you usually hear from Silver Medallion but sounds just as natural. Stream the whole project below and grab the free download if you like what you hear.

Electronic, Videos | Silver Medallion – Drunk Dial Princess (prod. by DJ Fresh Direct) [Music Video]

Posted by on December 11, 2012

In anticipation of Silver Medallion & DJ Fresh Direct’s upcoming XANAXLAND project dropping tomorrow, the two have released the visuals for a newly heard song off the EP entitled “Drunk Dial Princess”. The song has a Kid Cudi meets Santigold type-feel to it and hard to quite pin down genre-wise. Read what Silver Medallion had to say about the song below and stay tuned for XANAXLAND dropping tomorrow.

“There comes a time in every club girl’s life when her phone only rings after 2am and she realizes she hasn’t gone in a date during the daytime in weeks. All her friends are other girls seated at the promoter dinner fighting over appetizers, waiting for their walk-in at whatever hotspot the latest starlet made the news at. She and her neighbor at the table compare fake IDs, and they debate the most endearing way to ask their fathers to raise their allowance. At least she doesn’t live in a hallway separated by sheets like the models, but this isn’t exactly Sex In The City either. Some fall further down the rabbit hole, some crawl their way out, either way they eventually meet Silver Medallion or DJ Fresh Direct on their way and phone numbers are exchanged. This is the cycle of the Drunk Dial Princess.” – Silver Medallion

DJ-Set, Trap | Silver Medallion – XNX Vol. 2 [DJ Mix]

Posted by on November 18, 2012

Need your Trap fix for the night? Well, Silver Medallion has got you covered with his latest installment of his XNX DJ mix series. Comprised of some of the biggest recent Trap hits and some more obscure gems, this mix is not one to miss if you are into Trap music. Listen and download below.

“There comes a moment in every young New York City man’s life when he wakes up in an apartment he doesn’t recognize, far nicer than his own. It’s 1pm, he may have missed his job shift, he may not remember the night before, he’s a little put off by waking up somewhere so beyond his means, he’s sweating out Jameson and promoter vodka, and he looks over and thinks he’s in love. The girl from last night, prettier than she was in the dark lights, rolling up a dutch, smiling in something small. Our hero loses sight of all around him, the day turns to a week, then three, before he starts asking the questions he should have asked day one… Does she work? How does she afford the apartment? Why are their so many prescriptions? How does she know Brett “Daddy” David? Are she and Cody Bespoke just friends? Do we have to end up at 1OAK at 4am every weeknight? This isn’t your grandmother’s Alice In Wonderland, this is Xanaxland.” – Silver Medallion

Progressive House | Silver Medallion vs. Dragon & Jontron – Dream On

Posted by on November 11, 2012

It’s been a minute since we last heard a new Silver Medallion track. In what is the first of a series of vocal bootlegs, Silver Medallion takes Dragon & Jontron’s “Sriracha” (available on Beatport) and adds his own vocal flare to it. The addition of Silver Medallion to the track truly takes it to a new level. In my opinion, many EDM tracks released today should have at least a vocal mix in addition the original when released. Vocals always make songs just that much more memorable. Read the story about the track below.

“Made this vocal bootleg while souped up on sangria during hurricane Sandy. Locked in my brooklyn apt for a few days with a bunch of creative types and an endless supply of boxed wine and all sorts of things were discussed and written, this is the first one to see the light.” – Silver Medallion

You would have to follow Silver Medallion on Twitter to get that joke. And on the seventh day, God said let their be haus. Jam out to this one!

Alternative, Pop | Silver Medallion – Money Can’t Buy [Music Video]

Posted by on September 24, 2012

Last month, Silver Medallion and some his homies helped throw a NYC party inside a Dim Sum restaurant in Chinatown, which turned into the perfecting setting to film the music video for the second single “Money Can’t Buy” off Silver Medallion & DJ Fresh Direct’s upcoming project together, Xanaxland. Ginger Riot filmed the whole night so you can see what a night out in NYC with Silver Medallion and his posse is like while they get sloppy, steal pizzas and generally wild out. If you look closely you can even spot cameos from Cam’ron and Riff Raff in the video. Following up from their genre-bending “Hey Cinderella”, Silver Medallion & DJ Fresh Direct combine elements of Alternative, Trap, Pop to make their ode to the end of summer.

Drum & Bass | Silver Medallion – Hey Cinderella [Lyric Video]

Silver Medallion & DJ Fresh Direct welcomes you to Xanaxland with the first leak “Hey Cinderella” off their upcoming project together entitled Xanaxland. “Hey Cinderella” is definitely a new style for Silver and expect to hear more like this as more leaks come from the project to be released this Fall. Read Silver Medallion’s introduction to Xanaxland and the download the track below. Update: Added the lyric video for “Hey Cinderella”.

“The summer is close to ending and soon all the midwestern girls who came to NYC for their PR internships will either leave with their dream of hooking up with a DJ fulfilled, or be back next summer to continue chasing. Simultaneously college bedroom disc jockeys across the globe are telling their friends they’ve started spinning “trap” and making out with their high school girlfriends to Flosstradamus mixtapes. Meanwhile, in our Manhattan recording studio, DJ Fresh Direct and I have been locked in scotch fueled recording sessions listening to the Dipset Trance series, and come up with our musical answer to the times, and we call it Xanaxland.” – Silver Medallion
