Albums, Electronic | Cashmere Cat – Wedding Bells EP & Video

Posted by on February 13, 2014

Yes folks, this is the week we have all been waiting for. Just a few days ago, our favorite feline Cashmere Cat dropped his highly anticipated EP, appropriately titled Wedding Bells, and as a follow up, the music video counterpart for the title track.

As a whole, the EP is a musical journey with uplifting builds and cadences of flutes, piano chords, and dew drops that send you soaring like a leaf wistfully falling in the breeze. In accordance with the theme, each track plays out a motif that strikes a different chord of your heart strings, from the early stages of butterflies and passing notes to the all encompassing feeling of true, uninhibited love. *swoon*

And it seems Cashmere Cat has a complete grasp of his artistic vision in every possible sense, as the visual pairing for the leading single compliments the track in the most compassionate of ways.

Now, according to a Pitchfork review by Nate Patrin, the innovative and “fundamental” nature of the EP marks a turning point in the direction of electronic music, and even more importantly Cashmere’s skyrocketing career. But I beg to differ with Patrin’s claim that it is difficult to develop any sort of “emotional connection to the cuts” as instilling that type of emotion in his listeners seems to be at the top of his artistic agenda. While Patrin argues that these melodies create more “agitation than elation,” I think that’s what causes us to enjoy the EP more and more. There are those moments of slight unease that with a second listen, evolve into strong feelings of adoration, like taking yourself of your listening comfort zone and discovering a whole new appreciation for the sound.

If you haven’t already, you can purchase the Wedding Bells EP via iTunes, and consider saving some money on chocolate and roses tomorrow and burn a copy of it for your significant other as well. That’s when the real magic happens =^.^=


House | AC Slater & Anna Lunoe – All Night

Posted by on August 7, 2013

AC Slater & Anna Lunoe - All NightI am generally pretty skeptical of covers, especially taking songs into different genres, but AC Slater & Anna Lunoe nailed it. It is more of a remix / cover, then a pure cover, since it only takes bits and pieces of the original “Power Trip” from J Cole & Miguel. The track takes a simple vocal motif, spins it into new light with Anna Lunoe seductive voice and adds an irresistible groove, with a mixture of deep and bright synths. It is free, so just get it now. He is also a part of Jack Beat’s upcoming remix EP, coming next week, so preview that below.

Electronic, Mix, Trap | Cashmere Cat for Diplo & Friends BBCR1

Posted by on May 11, 2013


Cashmere Cat, for reasons other than being a fellow cat lover, is one of my absolute favorites right meow. I’ve been a fan of everything he’s been putting out so I was even more stoked when I got to indulge in an entire hour of his sweet sounds on this episode of Diplo & Friends radio. He does an astounding job of bouncing (literally, check the mattress squeaking motif) from hip hop to hot beats to trap and experimental noises and manages to keep the listener engaged throughout. Some highlights include his own personal tracks, Mirror Maru (2:55) and Kiss Kiss (18:20), throwbacks like the Men in Black theme (34:40), and a witty surprise in the middle of Justin Timberlake’s Señorita (9:50).

You can download this mixtape fo free, in addition to a selection of his bumpin remixes off his Soundcloud. Really though, you’ve gotta be kitten me if you don’t =^.^=



Hip-Hop | PJ Simas – Family Room

Posted by on April 22, 2012

Finally. If any of you follow PJ on twitter you’ll know that he has been teasing us with this track all day. Family Room starts us with a gorgeous piano riff and is then taken over by some heavy synths and PJ’s heavy style of rapping. The general motif of this song is that PJ is kicking it with his friends, family, and ladies, in his family room, showing that he’s staying humble. Also, if anyone has some funny captions for the above picture, drop them off in the comments section.

Progressive House | Michael Brun – Rise (Dirty South Edit)

Posted by on March 19, 2012

The day has arrived for Michael Brun “Rise” with a small edit from Dirty South to be released on Dirty South’s Phazing Records. As you saw with the preview, this track was going to be huge and the full version delivers. The driving bass line with varying percussive elements gives way to a easy piano motif and uplifting synth chords that create melody that will force your hands to “Rise” (see what I did there?) into the air. After the jump check out the first episode of Dirty South’s “Phazing Radio” that includes this rip below and many more new and unreleased tracks.

Michael Canitrot, the up and coming French Dj, known for his summer smash, “When You Got Love” is back again with another single, “White Escape”, just released today out on his own label Aime Music that is sure to be played by many this winter. It has a grungy synth line with a hard bass with some spacey synths in the break and good piano motif in the build. Get it on BEATPORT.

Blue Collision came out a few weeks ago and is picking up steam in popularity. Each time I listen it gets better. It has a hard electro synth undertone with a guitar riff over it and a driving bass with a sensitive piano in the build for a great contrast. Get it on BEATPORT.

House, Videos | Deadmau5 – Aural Psynapse

Posted by on November 4, 2011

Here is Deadmau5’s newest single “Aural Psynapse” that is really a re-release from back in the early days of his career when he went under the moniker of Halcyon441, which he released quite a few tracks including “Aural Psynapse”. It has that smooth sound we expect from him with a catchy synth motif that will be stuck in your head for days. This was first premiered on his BBC Radio One Essential Mix and he has been playing it on his Meoxington Hax Tour, which if you did not go to one of the shows, I really feel bad for you. Here is a video of behind the scenes footage. Get the song on iTunes HERE.

Here is a solid remix from StobeHypnoticz that keeps the smooth vibe of the song, but changes things up a bit and changes the synth sounds more into a piano sound. The original takes my vote here, but make up your own mind. If any of you DJs want the .wav format of this, grab it on his soundcloud.
