New Wet Dream coming soon…real soon…moving states and the elevation in the Mile High City had me off my A game for a minute. Thanks to Deadly Sins, I’m grooving once again.
There’s no embed of just the Original, but it’s right here:
Kartell: no idea who he is or where he came from and I like it that way cause most of the time producers are just not as cool as their music. The dude makes very happy steam machine music. Usually in the “chill disco euphoria” zone. This one’s a little chopped up and a little trippy mane. But it’s tight…
I’ve become quite jaded with the music blog game lately, so much so that I’ve considered retirement or a hiatus from the SoundCloud hunting, gem finding lifestyle that’s been my heart and soul for the past 6 years. I’ve thought about dumping all the mixtapes and new tunes, and going back to the roots. Bob Marley on repeat, Pink Floyd when the sun goes down, Grateful Dead in the car, Springsteen in Jersey, and The Doors when shit gets dark. But then my homies send me a track like this and I realize: most of what I find isn’t at all new. It’s just reborn.
I used to be a hater. Than I tasted success and became too busy to spend time dwelling on the whack. This sounds like Ellie Goulding before she was that chick that banged Skrillex and shaved her head like Skrillex. In other words: really, really melodic and stellar.
David Keller - Little Diamond (Extended)
My life is chaotic in the best way right now—but David August has got me staying calm under the heat. His new album Times is simply a world-beater of deep chillness, and this mix, which includes tracks from the album and a mind-blowing Beatles remix, embodies the soul of August. Get deep.
Touch Sensitive’s EP, released on Vinyl tomorrow, is about to create some space-aged babies with synths embedded in their embryos. Show me the firm flip side. If you haven’t seen the front yet—Pizza Guy—well, you’re in for a real treat. It’s definitely not a butter face.
I really need to see Magnolia again. It’s all at once gut-wrenching and heart-warming. Essentially the perfect bittersweet symphony by PTA. Aimee Mann brings together all the amazing performances (Tom Cruise, William Macy, Julianne More, etc.) with one of the best soundtracks of all time.
This song came on during yoga today, and I almost broke into tears. But I was sweating way too much for any other substance to exit my body. Anyway, my yoga instructor had a pretty great message that we’ve all heard before: be happy where you are.
This one’s got an eerily similar sound and chord progression to Asaf Avidan’s hit “One Day/Reckoning Song.” It came out two years ago but unlike the latter, doesn’t have vocals. Interesting. Instead, it carries some beautiful piano parts and general moist vibes. In fact, it’s on some Nicolas Jaar shit. Get lit and get pink.
Let it all sink in. Playboy chicks/chicks in general used to wear way less makeup. And look way better. Purity at the core is where I want to be. Bon Iver, one of many people who Kanye West samples really damn well, is pure fire.
I’ve been driving around LA late with the windows down and my shitty sound system blaring the Endless Summer Mixtape (which I scooped up some 6 months ago at their Private Label showcase) for the past week. Every song on it is ace and the entire mix is seamless and flawless. The Denouement Cosmic Kids threw on it is simply a very happy, calm ending that centers the soul.
