Review | Desert Hearts Spring Festival 2016: A Journey of Discovery

Posted by on April 25, 2016


Before moving out to California three months ago, I didn’t know much about Desert Hearts. I would see the festival’s name pop up time after time in blogs and Facebook posts, and I became intrigued by the colorful photos and people that caught my attention. I remember sitting at home in the middle-of-nowhere, Pennsylvania, scrolling through photos of the festival, and fantasizing about what it would be like to be in this vibrant scene all dressed in silly clothes with happy-looking humans. Not long after my move to California, an opportunity arose for me to attend the festival; I couldn’t refuse it. The time had finally come for me to find out what Desert Hearts was all about.


Pop, Videos | Timeflies – SMFWU [Live]

After lighting up the country with their Warning Signs tour, Timeflies will be back in the studio, clocking the hours (pun intended) for their debut full length album.  I can’t speak first hand on every tour stop, but based on their performance in Boston, it’s without question the level of production going into each and every one of their live shows has skyrocketed since the last time I saw them.  Lights, fog, more lights, huge sound, energy, live freestyles, and much more of everything on an even larger scale.

The video above is a compilation, chopped up and blended together by Mike O’Brien Films, of several live performances of their radio ready single, “SMFWU”.  Without question a fan favorite anthem off of their recent EP, Warning Signs, but this visual gives you an idea of how live these shows get.

Grab the EP below and check out a few photos from Timeflies homecoming show in Boston.

Events | THROWBACK THURSDAY: The Best of Global Dance Festival 2013

Posted by on August 15, 2013


After finally resolving some site issues and getting the chance to post up in one location for more than 24 hours, I am elated to present to you a recap of Fresh New Tracks’ favorite moments from this year’s Global Dance Festival.

Global Dance Festival is the hidden gem of music festivals, not-so-quietly tucked away between the soaring red rocks a few miles outside Denver, Colorado. This year marks the 11th running of the festival and to this day, Global has stayed true to its motive of keeping things fresh and innovative as both electronic music and the world evolve. Each day of the festival varied greatly from the next, catering to electronic music aficionados of every kind.
