Following the footsteps of 3LAU and Kap Slap, Trademark has amassed a huge fan base through his mashups and now turns to original productions. Only a few artists have successfully been able to make the leap and based off Trademark’s first remix, he’ll have no problem following suit. Trademark puts his spin on Lany’s “Where The Hell Are My Friends”, filled with good vibes, warm synths, and an upbeat melody. We look forward to see what Trademark comes up with in the future, he’s definitely got a bright future ahead of him. Check out the track now and be sure to support his socials!

Interviews | Bricks Break’s Down His House Roots, Timing, Future Plans & More In Exclusive Interview

Posted by on July 19, 2016

Bricks has a classic LA story but with some genuine depth to it that’s just likeable, frankly. In this FNT interview, Bricks breaks down where his house roots came from, why he makes what he does (which is fluid dark hip-hop-influenced house that totally suites 2016, check out previous posts on our site), and so much more. Read all the details here.

How would you describe your style?

Brian: I’d describe it as a collection of all the styles that have influenced me through out my life. It’s combination of House, Miami Bass and Hip Hop. I add the groove of house to the raw 808 miami bass sound, then work in some vocal chopping and analog 80’s synths, and out comes up the Bricks sound.

When I first laid my hands on Playy. I was skeptical. Apps aimed at the dance market and/or the loyalist/hyper-social music fan demo are a dime a dozen.Yet, Playy app is the opposite of such criticisms. Playy offers a series of tools that create a win-win scenario for all players involved, while providing higher than average content on socials. Here’s the logistics, the app allows you to use music from Playy’s ever-growing catalog to capture real time moments, essentially making a montage of sorts while using artists music legally. Yet, Playy goes much further than this. Their well-designed and fully-functional software allows you to capture various parts of the song, utilize editing tools, rotate the order of created clips in real-time, while adding finishing touches and effects. Once finished, your video is posted to your profile and feed. Where friends – and the artist of the song you used – are notified and can view, enjoy, and share. Imagine it like a Snapchat and Facebook combined with awesome theme song inserts that both artists and friends can be notified to see.
