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! ¯\_(?)_/¯

Electronic, House | Rasmus Faber – Indian Summer feat. Frida Sundemo

Posted by on September 4, 2013

As evening approaches over here in the land of the tall, blonde and beautiful, I’ve got a spectacular view out my dorm room window of the sun setting in the horizon. Inspiring, to say the least, to watch it while listening to one of my latest discoveries. Now before I give that away, let me tell you I love house just as much as the next frat star but there comes a point, not just for house but all genres, where everything honestly starts to sound the same. I was worried I had reached that point until I stumbled upon Swedish producer (there seems to be a lot of these floating around FNT lately…), Rasmus Faber. And his latest release, titled “Indian Summer” featuring fellow Swede Frida Sundemo stands out to me the most. Like many a great progressive house tracks, it has the heavenly vocals and pulsating beats but instead of the overused builds and drops, Rasmus provides us with a “musical landscape of meandering and looping piano.” Not bad, right?

As I writer I do my best to share my own unique feelings, but considering my circumstances, the track’s description really nails it on the head for me:

Indian Summer evokes lazy, sunny days of happiness, yet with the imminence of autumn comes a slight sense of foreboding and melancholy that is ever-present in Scandinavian culture. Enjoy the last few rays, the swan song, the gentle passing of time as thoughts look to the future and what could be!

Will do, Rasmus.

warm air vol. 1


When it comes to summertime playlists, it’s a cutthroat battle for the ultimate, all-inclusive and trendiest compilation, so hear me out for a second. Allow me to introduce to you, Warm Air, a three-part series by yours truly that will coincide with the rise and fall of your sweet summer season. I present to you this first installment of my series on the first day of summer, appropriately, in hopes that you might enhance any which way you decide to spend your greatest allowance of sunlight with the shimmering sounds of some of my current favorite artists. This playlist in particular is for the moment you wake up when the possibilities for your day are limitless; the sun is sparkling everywhere from the leaves on the tree to the water in the pool and the hood of your new Bugatti. With a mimosa in one hand and your beach towel in the other, these tracks will inspire and motivate you to carpe the shit out of the diem. But what happens when the sun is hot, the babes are out and you’re ready to play? Stay tuned for volume 2, coming soon to a boombox near you…





Electronic | Penthouse Penthouse – When It’s Hot feat. Djemba Djemba & Mr. Carmack

Posted by on May 30, 2013


Penthouse Penthouse (the band so good they named it twice) dropped a preview of this juicy beat a few weeks ago and I’ve been biting my nails since because I had a feeling it was just too delicious of a sound to only last 1:31 – and bam, was I right! I love all three of the artists at work here; their tracks give me this feeling of being at an A-list infinity pool party surrounded by sexy socialites, top-shelf liquor and finely trimmed hedges. And even if I’m in my friend’s backyard with a kiddie pool, a frisbee and some PBR, I know this jam brings all the swag I need.

Anyway, with the magic touch from Djemba Djemba (doubles again?!) and Mr. Carmack, I’d describe it as Justin Timberlake-esque but with more street cred and less buttons fastened on his shirt. Now sit back and prepare to be swept off your feet because this is only the beginning of your new summer romance.

Having an opportunity to travel the country sharing good vibrations with thousands and thousands of fans is far fetched for many of us.  The duo native to Massachusetts has been privileged with the opportunity to tour the beautiful US of A on several occasions.  On their latest tour with Hoodie Allen, Jared Evan, and Mod Sun, David and Carter found it fitting to shoot visuals for their most recent single “Take It Wrong” across various scenery in some of their favorite cities.  Summertime music is here, FAM.

Progressive House | DubVision – Redux

Posted by on March 8, 2013

Dutch duo DubVision continue their hot string of releases coming off of their “Summertime” remix and of course their still potent “Committed to Sparkle Motion” remix and now put out their first single of the year on Spinnin Records, “Redux”. The track does not stray from the winning formula DubVision have created for themselves with a beautiful melody, grand, echoing piano and a driving, rolling bass line that all comes together in a track that should be played in a large warehouse or on a festival stage. This big room monster has already found its way into the sets of most of the top Djs, so you can expect to hear it early and often echoing around the Megastructures at Ultra.
