Cover, Indie, Pop | Timeflies Tuesday – Say Something

With what I’m expecting to be a banger of a single coming next week, Timeflies deliver yet another slow jam.  This week’s installment, a cover of A Great Big World’s, “Say Something”.  Like the New York made indie pop/rock duo, A Great Big World, Cal and Rez tackle this mellow piano ballad, but as always, they add an extra pinch of seasoning.  Enjoy this one before they turn up next week with their brand new single, “All The Way”.

Cover, Pop, Videos | Timeflies Tuesday: Let Her Go

Sometimes Timeflies Tuesday is a new joint you can ride to. Sometimes it’s a tranquil track you can make babies (or non babies) to.  Sometimes it’s both. This week Cal and Rez take on Passenger’s 2012 hit, “Let Her Go”. I’m not going to come out and say Cal has the voice of Passenger’s front man, Mike Rosenberg, but they do put one hell of a spin on this international chart topper.

Finally, a break from morning shows, radio spots, baseball games, and probably a few sub-par rooftop parties.  Life is tough, huh? Back off tour, Timeflies serve up a fresh new Tuesday rendition of the Calvin Harris/Ellie Goulding’s smash, “I Need Your Love”.  Fire on fire on fire folks.  TFT has girlies going gaga, globally.  Grab their recent single, “I Choose U” below.

Hip-Hop | Hi-Rez — Never Enough (feat. Kinetics) [Music Video]

Posted by on March 28, 2013

I’ve been aware of Hi-Rez’s growing stardom for awhile now, but it wasn’t until I really delved into his work that I realized how deserving he is. Rez is a talented rapper in his own right, who cares about the kind of hip-hop he represents, and thus works diligently on his lyricism. Joining him on this gripping, melodic Cherne beat is Kinetics, an absolute lyrical warrior, who is becoming one of the blog-world’s most consistent songwriters and emcees. Neither disappoints here, and Kinetics’ enthralling hook is what gives it its true lasting appeal. Be sure to stay updated on these two as their popularity continues to grow — we can only imagine that they are destined for long careers given their talent.


Freestyle, Hip-Hop, Videos | Timeflies Tuesday – Skyfall

Posted by on February 27, 2013

Another Wednesday morning, another Timeflies Tuesday. No knock to the boys, they’ve been hella busy these last couple of months. But of course, they still have time to drop an awesome video every Tuesday. When I saw the first Timeflies Tuesday two summers ago, I immediately knew that it would quickly become a YouTube staple. This weeks video is one of the classics of Cal freestyling. Rez whips up a quick Skyfall beat, and puts a little pitch bend on Adele’s beautiful James Bond theme. I will never not be impressed by Cal’s ability to think on his feet and come up with sick rhymes while pulling them out of some sort of container. When I first saw the “Carry on my Wayward Son” video, I was in awe. Nothing has changed.

Dubstep | Underworld – Rez (Bassnectar Remix)

Did I tell you that this was an awesome week for releases, or did I tell you that this was an awesome week for releases? Add Lorin Ashton to the varsity roster of artists dropping bombs between February 11th and 15th. If you haven’t already taken his spacey, heady reboot of the tech-trance mindmelt that is “Rez” for a spin or two or twenty, now is the time to redeem yourself. Listening to this song is probably as close as we’re currently able to get to knowing what it’s like to be sucked through a wormhole. If that doesn’t sway you, this should: you know a track is something serious when Bassnectar uses it to usher in 2013 from the helm of a 360-degree LED pod (see above). “Rez” is out now on US iTunes and vinyl, if you’re into that, via Child’s Play Records.
