Monday Goodies (Dillon Francis, Thomas Gold, Duck Sauce)

20 Jun

Starting off the week is always an interesting process, but today wasn’t so bad. I know that some good music can go a long way if you’re not really feelin’ it, so I have a few tracks that should bring up your mood a bit whether or not you need it. Dillon Francis just put out this new remix and I will warn you that it is quite the moombahton rave tune. Thomas Gold‘s remix of “Set Fire To The Rain” is fire and Viceroy‘s edit of “Goody Two Shoes” brings a smile to my face every time. Enjoy.

Hard Haunted Mansion Recap

2 Nov

Harder Stage- Special guest: Miike Snow (DJ-set)So I kept telling myself that I wasn’t going to go to Hard this year, sadly, due to other priorities, but Sunday afternoon a friend convinced me to go. I definitely made a great decision despite the fact that I am writing this post severely deprived of sleep, but it was worth it. Anyway, I was only in attendance Sunday night but I know many people who went Saturday. The people I have talked to say the best sets were from Rusko and the Bloody Beetroots. Sunday night, my favorites were A-trak, the special guest, Miike Snow (DJ-set), and Boys Noize closing the Halloweekend all the way from Deutschland. This years production, at the inside stage and outside stage, was definitely an improvement on last years although they were lacking some necessities (LASERS!). The crowd in attendance were the typical L.A. party people creating a good festive vibe for the night. I’ve heard Saturday was an awesome time and Sunday definitely was as well, so I’d say it was a very successful Hard Haunted Mansion! As a recap, here are some songs you might have jumped around to, pumped your fist to, or even danced around to with movements foreign to many onlookers!

Flux Pavilion- Lines In Wax Ft. Foreign Beggars***Rusko opened up with this dub banger

Cassius- I Love You So (TROWA Remix)***Busy P dropped the original mix of this one, but I like this dubstep version better!

Boys Noize- Yeah*Heard multiple times Sunday night

The Chemical Brothers- Dissolve (Bloody Beetroots Remix)

Rogerseventytwo- Take Me Higher*Disco House, courtesy of A-trak, mixed in with a little Duck Sauce

Here’s a little clip of the madness just in case you missed it!

Hip-Hop Beats: Kanye, Atmosphere, A-trak

21 Oct

I’m sure you all were just itching for some Hip-Hop after listening to all that pounding techno music, so I decided to bring out some nice beats I came across. Despite the fact that he is representing our whole generation, this recent release “Good Friday” is quite the catchy, feel-good, tune that I’m sure will please the ears of new and veteran Kanye fans alike. Not to mention it features a number if notable artists…

Kanye West ft. Common, Pusha T, KiD CuDi, Big Sean, And Charlie Wilson- Good Friday***

Atmosphere had relatively been laying low since his last LP, “When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold” released in 2008. Last month, he released a combination EP, “To All My Friends, Blood Makes The Blade Holy: The Atmosphere EP’s”. This song, “The Loser Wins,” is certainly one of the many gems on the EP, and once you get by the first lyrics that will catch you off guard, it moves into the familiar Atmosphere style with a guitar driven beat.

Atmosphere- The Loser Wins

The most recent release of this post is an A-trak song, “Ray Ban Vision”. It’s awesome how A-trak can go from producing Disco House songs like Barbra Streisand in Duck Sauce, alongside Armand Van Helden, to this Hip-Hop song. The lyrics that serve as the focal point of the song, “I got Ray Ban Vision” seem to creep into your brain and stay there for a while (not that it’s a bad thing). I feel this one’s got some potential, listen for yourself!

A-trak ft. CyHi Da Prynce- Ray Ban Vision

Since this is my first Hip-Hop post I thought I’d include something different. Here’s a Nike video that was filmed all around LA, but specifically right here in West LA Cnct’s home, Loyola Marymount University (check 0:53-1:08). Also, the song to this video is a classic by a LA native, Ice Cube, and if you don’t have it already, you should. (download link below video)

Ice Cube- It Was A Good Day
