Rankin – Geisha Girl

11 Nov

With a tenacity for success and a desire to provide the soundtrack to your weekend nights, Ryan Rankin harnesses his maturing musical tastes into quality productions with depth and passion. Hailing from Newport Beach, CA, he draws influence from a feel-good optimism that was spawned through his experiences surfing in the Pacific and his well-qualified sponsorship by RVCA, supporting him as an artist. You may remember him from this year’s Pacific Festival or from The Dirt #50 that I featured him in a couple of weeks ago. Rankin is a producer/DJ that you should definitely keep an eye out for, as he is in the infancy of his career and will undoubtedly establish himself further in dance music, especially with his own record label in the works, Slay Dem Recordings, which he is starting with his parter in crime, FUSS. He has given GDD™ an exclusive release on his brand new tune, “Geisha Girl,” and I highly recommend you download the excellent melodic dubstep that I’ve been enjoying all week.

Bassnectar at the Hollywood Palladium Preview

5 Sep

Last October, Bassnectar threw down an incredible performance for Los Angeles at the Wiltern and I am very happy that I was there to witness it. This Friday, we’re getting the chance to experience the bass and mayhem yet again, but this time, the party will be at the Hollywood Palladium. It is set to be an excellent night for all the bass heads that attend, especially with the Colorado-based opener, Big Gigantic. WEST LA CNCT will be covering the event, so keep an eye out for photos and a review next Monday! I couldn’t be more excited to see Bassnectar for my fourth time, so I hope to see you there to party with one of the best DJ’s around.

Kings of Convenience- Know-How

14 Aug

I am exhausted from so many shows in the past week and I really needed this day to recover, so I am thankful for it. This song, “Know-How,” is an old favorite of mine that my buddy D.D. showed me back in high school. He found it on the A Brokedown Melody soundtrack and I am glad he did. Definitely some mellow vibes on this one. Enjoy.

LYfeSTile- 4YOURMIND

1 Aug

Fueled by a vision of success, the main man behind LYfeSTile, David Greenfeld, uses his ambition to propel his career in hip-hop to new heights. A few weeks ago, he released an EP, 4YOURMIND, that is overflowing with excellent tracks. David lays it down smooth with witty and creative lyrics that are presented in a style unique to the LYfeSTile name. The EP features premium progressive hip-hop production that surprisingly draws influences from EDM. If you would like to have a glimpse into the future, listen to LYfeSTile and you won’t be disappointed. Keep an eye out for future posts and grab the EP in it’s entirety here!

 

Check out the video for “Let It Rise Ft. Leon Ware”! Great to see some West LA action.

Monday Goodies #5

1 Aug

I’m getting back into the swing of things after a little vacation over the weekend. The picture above was taken when I was backpacking in Sequoia and the trail passed by that unbelievable view. Anyway, here is some tunage to start your week off. If you have heard of Angus & Julia Stone’s “Big Jet Plane,” the Hook N Sling & Goodwill track, “Take You Higher,” will sound very familiar. Gemini seems to never let me down with his massive, yet melodic, dubstep sound. The Brookes Brothers took drum and bass in a different, more subtle, direction with “Daybreak” and I like it a lot. Have a great week!

Hook N Sling, Goodwill- Take You Higher (Club Mix)

Gemini- Elevate

Brookes Brothers- Daybreak (feat. Tasha Baxter)

Mansions on the Moon- For Awhile

31 Jul

After spending some time in the mountains this past weekend, some mellow music is a must. A WEST LA CNCT favorite, Mansions on the Moon, just released a new track “For Awhile”. It definitely hits the spot with subtle synths, soothing vocals, guitar, and a contrast with driving drums. I’m still itching to hear their full length album… Follow Mansions on the Moon on Facebook and Soundcloud!
