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.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Isaiah Rashad – Ronnie Drake (ft. SZA) [Video]

Posted by on November 24, 2013

The TDE label mates, Isaiah Rashad and SZA teamed up a few weeks back to form the soft-spoken and tender “Ronnie Blake”. The power-duo has recently returned to the scene with their music video accompaniment. The video for “Ronnie Drake” is nothing incredibly detailed or cinematic, however, it does show a side that holds true to who Isaiah Rashad is as a person and as an artist.

I’ve had this record on repeat for days now, and I’m happy to be able to share it with you all. Enjoy this rare hip-hop flavoring on FNT and stay tuned for Rashad’s upcoming mixtape Cilivia.

Exclusive | Lorde – Royals (Wild Boyz! Remix)

Posted by on September 4, 2013

If you could be any type of person out there in the world today, I think you’d most want to be one of Lorde’s friends as described in her song, “Royals.” Why is that? Well, if you haven’t listened to the original song enough times to make you lose your mind (which you should, because it’s truly stunning), then you might have missed the part where Lorde turns the spotlight to the average, relatively tame, yet still considerably happy teenager in contrast to, oh you know, everyone else out there blowin’ money fast. And I was so excited to hear this remix from the up and coming producers, Wild Boyz!, because it relays that same message. These boyz draw you in right from the start and as the track escalades, nuances of 80’s style synths take you away. Comparable to a modern-day Breakfast Club theme, fit for our electronic age, if you will.

Download. Press play. Live that fantasy.

See there’s a big difference between being hungry and thirsty, we know what we want we just go about it differently, the hungry person work for it, the thirsty want it instantly

SundayStudDay is back again this week with another Lu Balz production. Sampling the hit track “Royals” by Lorde, it sets the direction of the track. Personally, this is one of my favorite #SundayStudDay tracks that has dropped in this series. Mike and the Tourings Boring crew kick off the Fall tour on September 27 in NYC.

Events | Sunday Of Electric Zoo Canceled Due to “Serious Health Concerns”

Posted by on September 1, 2013

Above & Beyond Electric Zoo

Sunday of Electric Zoo has been canceled. If you are reading this and getting ready for the festival, stop and go back to bed because today is not happening. In conjunction with the Mayor’s office, Made Event, agreed to cancel Sunday after 2 people died over the course of Friday and Saturday and at least another 4 became seriously ill and needed to be hospitalized. The cause for the hospitalizations is not known yet, but it is presumed to be MDMA consumption. Before we start pointing fingers and blaming this person and that person, realize that this is a tragedy and two people died, so our hearts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the those who died, and we hope for a speedy recovery for those hospitalized. However, at some point these needless deaths at festivals have got to come to an end and soon because they are going to bring this to a halt.

Made Event has released a statement on the matter:

The founders of Electric Zoo send our deepest condolences to the families of the two people who passed away this weekend. Because there is nothing more important to us than our patrons, we have decided in consultation with the New York City Parks Department that there will be no show today.

Progressive House | OneRepublic – Counting Stars (Lonczinski Remix)

Posted by on July 2, 2013

artworks-000051929854-05p3zv-t500x500We’ve already heard many OneRepublic remixes but, at least for me, this was the first “Counting Stars” remix I’ve come across. I have become very familiar with Lonczinski’s style, probably because it is as generic as they come. That doesn’t mean it’s not good though. Well, kind of. These types of songs are good for a few days, but will you be listening to it two weeks from now? Unlikely. It’s producers like this who need to step out of the box and make something with staying power. Sure, this song’s not bad, it’s actually quite good seeing as how I feel the desire to post it, but this type of music is shallow and if a producer only sticks to this formula then they are clearly taking the easy way out. You should know something is wrong when a person can say “yeah, this is a good song” after listening and still not care enough to download it.
