The two words “oh wow” when said together by a short, yet kinda tall blond girl, or anybody really, will always make me smile and think back to an awesome thing that transpired in my life that is now forever associated with those special words (it’s not a sexual thing I swear (it is)). I didn’t audibly say those two words but I definitely thought them when I first heard the powerful melody in the build of this song. LarsM, a 19 year old Polish producer who has a vast catalogue of past releases, of which most are free, is known for his (hold on, I’m going to reach into my bulging sack of overused blogger adjectives) “happy” sounding tracks. To say that he is on the same level as Avicii when it comes to catchy melodies might be a bit of a stretch, but he is not far behind. “Air”, his latest original, features the impressive vocals of Mona Moua and boasts an incredibly euphoric melody and drop. I have also included his older song “Earthlike” because it is one of his best tracks and it showcases his ability to create those outstanding melodies.

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.

Electro, Trap | Electric Mantis – Flips And Flops, Drips And Drops

Posted by on November 27, 2013

It’s finals time over here in the land of the Swedes but I’m taking a little coffee break to share some music that’s been helping me knock out all my work. Oregon based producer Electric Mantis brings us this delightful electro-trap track appropriately titled “Flips And Flops, Drips And Drops,” perfect for those currently listening to artists along the likes of Flume and L D R U. In fact, I have to credit one of the hottest music blogs on the internet right now for bringing this track into my life – that being Djemba Djemba’s Soundcloud Stream. You can read all about Electric Mantis’ success story via Reddit here, meanwhile I’ve got to get back to reading the past three weeks worth of assignments. Whoops! ¯\_(?)_/¯

Alternative, Hip-Hop, Videos | Aer – Won’t Laugh

It’s been a few since Northeast duo, Aer, hit us with a new track.  While their good vibes, string riffs, & carpe diem lyrics are often associated with “summer music”, “Won’t Laugh” carries their sound through all four seasons.  The almost tribal toned intro rings us in, as David picks up the guitar and carries the hook while Carter lays down a few noteworthy verses; “Now you wonder why I wouldn’t trade my life with you, Why?! Cuz you hang the same keys from the same hook every afternoon, My angels lookin down upon me from a great view, they got my back but they hate you”.  ‘Do what you love, love what you do’ mentality.

Soaring high, it’s safe to say these guys will be raising the bar on their self entitled album due out January 21st!

Bass | Chase & Status – International (Skrillex Remix)

Posted by on October 17, 2013

This is why we wait patiently when artists don’t release songs as often as we would like, or as often as they used to. Everyone wants a piece of the Skrillmeister (be it for positive or negative reasons) and he has his hands on a million different projects at once. In interviews, Moore has stated that he does not release material unless he is completely satisfied with the result, often citing difficulties deciding how to put together albums or EPs. I respect that mentality. Obviously he decided that this remix was ready to rock, and I would have to fully agree. I like a lot of the projects that Skrillex has contributed toward, and this remix is no exception. It is included on the new Chase & Status album, and feels right at home in that collection.This tune is well-crafted and really is an excellent remix of the original.  It shakes the walls, and I love it.

Electro-House | Mord Fustang – Something Right Meow

I’ve been needing some new Mord Fustang in my life for a while now, and happily enough the music gods decided to deliver today. “Something Right Meow” is textbook Mord — I think we can all agree that no one does kaleidoscopic soundscapes and driving basslines quite like the young Estonian producer. For your own sake, download this one right meow.
