From top to bottom, I’m completely enamoured by the first track off Different Sleep’s upcoming  EP, Damage. Art direction? On point. Composition? Perfect. All original vocals and keys? Absolutely. Give it a listen and keep an eye out for the Conflict EP,  being released April 22nd on Friends of Friends.

Since I’ve put out a few compilations myself and know how hard they are to assemble, AND these tunes are all stand-out I think I can say this with complete confidence: you should devote your listening time to Stoney Roads: Volume 2 as soon as you can. The release features Terace & Pikachunes, Acaddemy, Diego Slim, Sweetland, Stephane, Floria, and Leaderboy and showcases the best music coming out of Australia right now that you won’t find on Future Classic, Pilerats, Sweat It Out, or Modular. My two favourites are up above – follow the link below and give the thing a rinse.

Whether you are like me longing for the sun on your face and the warm sand between your toes or you have managed to get away from old man winter by heading south, I think we can all agree that winter has outlived its welcome. This month I have spent too many days freezing cold  staring at the cold bleak city scape longing for coconut trees,the sea and the sun. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to head south so instead I spent my time escaping to the beach through music. Here are some of my favourite new summer tracks put together into a mix that will keep you warm until the big thaw.

 

 

Tracklist:

Stay with us – Seoul
Open (ColeCo) – Rhye
Make your way – EMBRZ
Don’t ask why – Moon Boots
Look in yours eyes – Pherotone
Night Keys – Satin Jackets
Pound Cake (TonyTone Remix) – Drake
Horizon – Olin & Savile
Naku Penda Piya

Stay True,

Zeds Dead can do it all. We all know they’ve got the chops to produce hard-hitting “bangerz” (using the word ironically of course), with tracks like White Satin, and Ruckus the Jam, but this most recent tune confirms that Woods (ft. Bon Iver) wasn’t a one time thing. Flickers is a fantastic exhibition on how beautiful slow dubstep can be, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with it. Kudos to DC and Hooks for showing their soft side once again, and here’s to more in the future.

Hello world, how are you this fine day? I’d like to introduce you to a friend of mine’s brother’s best friend, Saint Pepsi. The Long Island native produces really sweet tracks, that according to his bandcamp page, are classified as “liquid disco.” His most recent release is this album, Gin City, which truly tickles the old ears the right way. My favorite track is Walking Talking, but the rest is solid as well. I hope you all enjoy him as much as I do.

Seattle’s Hush Hush Records latest editions is Korma, otherwise known as Tommy Mertens. Washington-native, Korma will be releasing a 7-track collection of bootleg remixes on 3.3.2014. Luckily, we have a taste with a premiere of his remix of Sadie Ama’s Fallin’. Korma twists  Fallin’ into a smooth grime track that reminds me of Fade To Mind’s Nguzunguzu. The creepin’ bass and eerie melodies make it a perfect late night track to rinse your day off. Take a listen exclusively through Salacious Sound and grab the full release Monday via Hush Hush Records.

Mau5trap tops this weeks chart with a great remix of Le Castle Vania from a group of bass droppin’ Frenchmen. It’s got a real techno feel I think you’ll enjoy. Take a peek!

BassReport 85

 

#1 Le Castle Vania – Disintegration (Dirtyphonics Remix)

Dirtyphonics take Le Castle Vania‘s Disintigration in a rave-heavy direction before working in the ever popular half time trap drop. It’s a little gimmicky in many cases these days, but not here. Pure party starter worthy of a top spot this week.

 

#2 Major Lazer & Pharrell – Aerosol Can (Carmack Refix)

 

#3 Vaski – The Nile

 

#4 Fei Fei – All Day I Dream (Getter Remix)

 

#5 Terravita & KJ Sawka – Atlantic Drifter

#7 Trolley Snatcha – DontStep

5 Icy-Hot Tracks to Help Melt Your Winter-Mania

I know as you stare out your windows, begging the universe to cease the snow storms, for the sun to shine and for the dead icy grass below to make its feature appearance. Just hold tight, it will resurface. But for now, let these hot and icy tracks melt away your pain. (Or move to California where I am)

Recently, Alex Young remixed a track for Icona Pop, Just Another Night. Firstly, I love Icona. They are perfect in their own sense, but besides that,  this track extorts real catharsis within, pushing me back to my high school years, including but not limited to, the constant enlarged pupils, dark rooms and rave lights.  This track goes off with a heartfelt electro vibe, works it way to an extremely Crystal Castles reminiscent state and ends up in the Hood.  This remix is perfect.

NGHTWRK came out with an original last night titled, Money Jack, which so far as been held dearly to the twerkin’ asses of many. This twerk anthem is all about gettin’ money and shakin’ booty. What else could you need?

This trap go-to artist, SNAILS, releases a fire original, titled, Dirty Raxxx. In this bass heavy, bouncy, bell chimin’ trap certified masterpiece, SNAILS pulls in rapper, Panther for some solid bars. Some solid gold bars.

Dapper, an up and coming DJ out of Los Angeles, releases a remix that I simply can not resist. Full of energy and good vibes, this track makes the cut. Everything about it is right on target from the bassline, to the synth, to the way it makes me move my body when no ones lookin’.

Now this track really topped it all off for me.  The Chainsmokers released this track a little while ago, #SELFIE, and I find it absolutely hilarious and satirical. Really something to lighten ya’ll’s moods.

While this track is just begging for a VEVO original video with cute girls riding Vespas away from a setting sun, Tune In Crew’s latest begs comparison to ODESZA in the best way possible. Equal parts whirring builds and crisp percussion, Don’t Go Go is a real jam in every sense of the word.

We haven’t heard from the young prodigy Madeon in quite some time, but he’s assured us of much more to come, and in the meantime, this. The fact that he wrote Cut The Kid “a couple years ago” is incredible, and along with his already impressive portfolio, re-enforces his case to become one of the legendary faces of French house for years to come.

Brooklyn-based producer, artist and musician, Esseks, has just released a brand-new EP entitled Sequel and it’s got a little bit of everything.  From Lorde to Tetris to summery vibes, this three track EP feels like just a taste of good things to come.  My personal favorite is the remix of Manu Chao’s Me Gusta Tu, but I won’t influence your choice any further.  Have a listen for yourself and download the whole EP on Bandcamp if you’d like!  Enjoi.

P. Morris – Debut [Mixtape & Interactive Website]

LA producer and Goombawave master P. Morris, formerly MORRI$, released his latest mixtape today aptly named Debut. Along with the 12 track album that weaves and intertwines a whole mix of hip-hop samples, horns and soulful vocals, is an interactive website where you can chase snowmobiles around an abandoned boat on a frozen lake or get lost at night in a fast-food parking lot. Trippy.

After experiencing both the music and website together I can say it elevates the feel of the music and allows you to get lost on an expansive, barren track of land or in the setting of a foreign country. However, even without the website the 12 tracks are a perfect match.  So sit down, relax, take some stress out and listen to Debut. It’ll put you in the right mind frame to do good things.

 

Editor’s Note: To celebrate the release of his latest project Debut, P. Morris is throwing a release party you should go to tonight in LA! However, if you don’t find yourself in SoCal you can still cop the latest EP on Bandcamp where you can name your own price.  Also! Keep on the lookout for an upcoming show review where he’ll be opening up for Sinjin Hawke in Brooklyn, NY. Enjoi.

Well well well. Just take a hit of this sweet sweet track. MP William’s remix of Shape is so good, it will figuratively knock your socks off. Unless you don’t wear socks. In that case, it’ll just tickle your toes just so. Anyway, enough musing: take a listen yourself and get hooked. I just wish it were longer!

Syn Cole - Miami 82 (Kygo Remix)

 

For the last few months, we here at Salacious have been all on that Kygo hype. And with his most recent remix, he proves yet again why his name should be gracing every Electronic Music blog worth its salt (not to mention how much he deserves the 70,000 hits he got in 10 hours). The 22 year old Norwegian is quickly becoming one of my go-to artists for beautiful and calming tunes, which is an incredibly important list in my daily music life. He brings a chill, tropical vibe to every one of his remixes that feels like laying on the beach in the warm sun (not that he has much experience of that in Norway). Anyway, to the remix!

It opens with smooth vocals and smoother synths, building into an eyes-closed-feel-good melody with Kygo’s usual attention to detail. He nails the atmosphere, with hissing synth pads and quiet chords filling the space around the main melodic line. The final “drop” at 4:00 is where it all comes together, the independent parts rolling together into a completely euphoric wall of sound. I think I groaned. Got some weird looks. Such is life.

Enjoy! Oh, and the description says the track’s in a remix competition! I’m sure Kygo would appreciate your support.
