Translation time: If you didn’t study Japanese culture, or  didn’t accidentally poke your head into Japanese 101 on your first day of classes, then the title of this post is probably as bizarre as the hieroglyphics at Giza. To start, Yama no kami, is a reference to a mountain region in Japan, and depending on your religious preferences, a deity as well. Kappa kavi, on the other-hand, is a colloquial expression for a cup of coffee. So, how do all of these Japanese references relate to the wonderful song you are about to listen to? Nothing really. Kappa Kavi, has created a great dance track–boosting glittery samples, a synth that sounds like my cat, (fuck yes) and a delightful piano outro only perfect for such a bizarre song, Yama – no – Kami Pt. II impresses on many levels.

After a long day all you wanna do is kickback and put your feet up. So when I got home and put this remix by Bearson on, I couldn’t help but smile ear to ear and relax a bit.

The Moving Castle Collective released Vol. 002 a few days back but I wanted to wait before I reviewed this compilation so that I could let the tracks make an impression on me. I’m not going to bore you by reviewing them one-by-one so I’ll just pick the song that I’m digging right now.

 

The Netherlands artist WRLD, where do I begin? Im super in to this one. Maybe it’s because of my affection for Dutch producers, many of which have been showcased before, but I like to think it’s because of his use of samples and the layers that he is able to create.

 

I can’t say that I like every track on this compilation but the 9 tracks do offer some unique talent and a little something for everyone.

I first heard of TastyTreat when You Got Me showed up about 8 months ago on hypemachine. I was blown away with the clarity of ideas and squeaky clean production – the track went into heavy rotation immediately. Just recently though I noticed they were in the running for a spot in Toronto playing at Time Festival (July 19th) and while they finished 2nd and might not be making the trek out from California, they did just drop a new track that rivals my love for its predecessor.

Say yes features some heavy bass trap rhythms and a wavy-ass synth line drop. But the best part is by far the horn line in the main bit sitting so perfectly in the pocket you’d think The Roots lent some arrangement help. I’m happy these guys are back on my radar, turn up and watch the babes come in droves like axe commercials.

Orlando duo Vices teams up with Holland’s finest Jailo, and created the most sexual flip of Ty Dolla Signs’ Know Y I Came. Both are OG members of the Moving Castle collective- yeah, that one that’s been breaking the internet lately. Be careful though, because this headnodic beat is extremely addicting. The pure raunchiness of Ty Dolla Signs’ lyrics, flipped into a Jersey Club track is everything that you have wanted for your Tuesday evenings!

By now I hope all of you have heard Henry Krinkle’s, Stay. If not, follow this link –> Stay. I’ve been waiting for this remix to drop after catching Justin Martin, at believe it or not, EDC LV. The track features a bass heavy flip but still manages to keep key elements of the original. The Dirty Bird Player could have not done it better!

Blurring the lines between IDM, progressive house, and a touch of UK garage–Daktyl’s new remix of Last Train by Dawn Golden, turned out to be a smashing success.  Those pitched up vocal samples really sealed the deal.  If you haven’t yet, check out the full album, Still Life

Madeaux has been called a “melodically rich” producer, which sounds like a lot of bullshit to me. What I can tell you is The Way Feat. Molly is chock full luscious reverb, old-school synths and beautiful vocals. I guess that just means “melodically rich” now.  Enjoy.

Los Angeles based-artist Give In hooked us up with the premiere for Time Away off his upcoming Slow Moves EP.  Not only did he produce this groovy tech house track he did the vocals as well, bridging the full spectrum of what it means to be a multi-talented artist. While this track may be minimal, don’t let it fool you as it will still have you dancing in your seat.

Tommy Ramone dead at 65

ramones_1290682013

Alright, so maybe in-between growing up in the golden age of hip-hop, and rocking out to OutKast’s Hey Yayou missed out on the simplistic beauty that was The Ramones. Not to fear, the Guardian has you covered, (or honestly talk to anyone over 40). The Ramones where rock and roll at most bashing–before Iggy Azalea, Lil Wayne, Drake, these where the true rockstars, crashing hotel rooms, and doing lines of coke off of pretty much any table surface. In their spirit, enjoy this song, when this was actually what it meant to listen to punk.

 

Dev Hynes remix’s Sia’s Chandeliers

e61fd7c5

Chances are, if you’ve been in the grocery store / mall / outside of your house in the past week, you’ve probably heard Chandeliers by Sia. Now, opinions aside of the original, you haven’t heard a remix like this. Dev Hynes, this beautifully dressed man, who also released his nu-disco album, Cupid Deluxe  last year, has crafted quite a remix, throwing in R&B beats and a new layer of vocals.

 

“Old English” ft. Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs & A$AP Ferg

Asap-Ferg-Shabba-2

OMG this song is a #Bangerz! Or whatever your white-basic-friend hashtags on her instagram/other vitriolic social media sites. Yet, this song deserves note. It’s produced by Salva (one of my favorites) along with Nick Hook, and…truth be told, the beat is quite catchy.  It doesn’t hurt that Freddie Gibbs flow is flawless, and A$AP Ferg wailing about molly and his “cuban hodoes have it’s entertainment.

Boosting bombastic drums, warm synths and an ever so sweet section of cascading strings, Chloe Martini has a knack for packing a wide array of instruments into his remix of Sia’s Chandelier.  Yet with his motley crew of instruments, Sia’s vocals still have breath, allowing her piercing vocals to sing about swinging from chandeliers, or something. It doesn’t really matter. Echoing Hayden James and Sable, clearly Martini knows how to make a glitch-house infused remix.  Well done.

Hey guys,

 

A lot of you may have noticed that I don’t post on here as much as I used to. I’ve been working full-time for the past year and while I don’t love this site or its readers any less because of it, I regretfully haven’t had time to give it the time that it deserves. Luckily, we have an amazing team here and between River, Andrew, Sean, Statik, Fillipo, and LeCastell there’s been a ton of content uploaded in my absence. Starting this week, I’m going to be uploading a few of my favourite songs at the moment once a week. There will be no theme or arbitrary ranking of songs, and the name will probably change week to week. We really don’t give a fuck about click-bait titles or SEO here at Salacious Sound so you know what, Mom? We’ll call this roundup whatever the fuck we want. Also, all the images will be from my Instagram.

I’ve been a big fan of BL₳NCO ever since I heard his remix of ‘Gush’ and ‘My Afternoon Dream’ back on his El Blanco Nino SoundCloud before they deleted his account (ouch). But since then he has been even busier with his ‘Begin2′ EP and now for the support he has received, he uploaded his second volume of unreleased songs.

This I feel is the cream of the crop, mixing the chillness of Sango with the likes of Lil Kim makes this a song to keep on repeat, love it.

Natasha

 

 

There’s something to be said about producers/dj’s that can incorporate live vocals during live sets. In my opinion, the result is much more organic and tangible, a human aspect that seems to be lost with most electronic tracks. Portland based Natasha Kmeto does this flawlesslyalthough her current track Last Drop is the opposite. It features spaced out synths with sampled vocals (I’m assuming they’re hers), ones that you would mostly likely find on a Bonobo track. Check out the Soundcloud link below!

This Vancouver-native and newly-accepted Red Bull Music Academy member, Ekali, has been on that game. His new track with aywy., Another Girl, is an elegant display of their craft. Taking Justin Timberlake’s lowered vocals and layering them with some harp…the ultimate jam. Let’s face it, it’s a late-night, seduce-me kind of song.
