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.

#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.

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

Category: Audio

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.

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.

I don’t listen to straight drum and bass too often… but when I do it’s liquid.

Cambridge raised and Toronto educated Hugh Hardie has made some big noise since returning 12 months ago to the UK after 4 years in Canada. He’s recently announced bookings in Antwerp, Amsterdam, Ghent, Bristol, and Cambridge – and in the last month alone landed releases with Hospital Records and now Liquicity.

This second meetup between Zoe and Hugh is back in his familiar 167 bpm territory. The track’s synths just dance around those running breaks and Zoe’s vocals will stick with you for days. Considering until these label releases Hugh’s most successful track to date was his previous Zoe Phillips remix it feels right that his next level of material comes with her gracing it as well.

Available now for sale on the Liquicity ESCAPISM Album.

It’s the end of the weekend. Or if you go to bed early, you’ll be reading this early Monday morning, slugging through piles of paperwork and the bad taste of overpriced coffee. Wherever you are—­­ trying to catch the last twilight hours, or wishing it was the weekend, listen to Branchez’s remix of Don’t Wanna be Your Girl by Wet.  The chill vocals and laid-back trap percussion have been something Branchez has been known for, and his inclusion of atmospheric vocals blended over smooth claps and hi-hats doesn’t  fail to disappoint.

Interview: Valentin Stip [Other People/Clown & Sunset]

Article by

Feb 24, 2014
Genre:
Category: Features, Interview, MP3

Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

 

Since I first heard Equis(e) on his Any Time Will Do EP, I’ve been enamoured by the sounds of Other People‘s Valentin Stip. After months upon months of listening to his tracks with new ears, I got a chance to connect with Val recently about his newest offering, Correlation, and the upcoming album it’s a part of, Sigh. I was lucky enough to receive (and be blown away by) a promo copy of the release and had this to say when I got him on the line from New York.

 

———————

 

I’d like to start with the most obvious question: what was the inspiration for Sigh?

 

It would be hard to say that there was one particular inspiration. It was more my ambition to make something more complete, almost like a mental movie with musical tools. So, it was a long process of searching for what you’d call scenes or sets that would work well together and create something new.

 

So when you say you’re recreating scenes, does each track represent something unique?

 

Yeah, for me it’s like a different universe to place yourself in and represents all sorts of different moods. The goal was to turn something as objective as music into a living entity with which you can reflect-

 

More experiential.

 

Exactly.

 

Do you think there’ll be an addition of a visual component then?

 

For now, I want people to be confronted by the absence of a visual component. I want them to try and see what they want to see in the music.

 

Now, from start to finish, how long did Sigh take you?

 

It took me about a year and a half-

 

Wow… And do you have a favourite track?

 

Maybe not a track per se, but I love the transitionary period in the middle when it all falls silent.

 

I noticed that the tracks all flow together incredibly smoothly. Do you view the album more as a whole than a sum of parts?

 

In the end, yes. I’ve been working on it for so long with the full-length in mind and at first I was working on them differently; that was about a year ago, but I got rid of those tracks because I wasn’t happy– the full narrative wasn’t complete enough. From that first draft I restarted and realized that the bigger picture was clear now, and I filled in the blanks that I needed.

 

Did you approach this project any differently than with Angst?

 

It was a completely different method from Angst because with Sigh I had a piano which I could record and I was finally able to re-insert piano into my music. I used to play piano all the time, then when I stopped I started making electronic music and Sigh was really a reconciliation of both of these sides. I started recording piano a lot and working more on melodies than beats.

 

Are there any particular tracks that you think will resonate the most with your audience?

 

In my mind it would be Alethia or Correlation

 

Correlation really, really moved me.

 

It was included in the album because I knew it was the most accessible track. I knew it would have the most direct impact.

 

Now that you’re done with Sigh, what’s your next step?

 

I’ve started building a modular synth so I think I’ll try and start using more machines. Using a piano gave me a real sense of what it’s like to produce electronic music using real instruments and I’d like to move away from the computer into a more instrumental, hands-on approach. I don’t know how it will sound musically – haha, it might be techno – but it’ll sound different.

 

Do you have any plans to play more shows in North America?

 

Definitely, I think from now I’ll try to play more shows. As I said before, I DJ with records. My live performance is a bit difficult for listeners because it’s pretty atmospheric and noisey. It can be hard to dance to so it was hard to get gigs, but now that I’m DJing records it will be easier to adapt.

 

 

I feel like you’ve always been Other People’s most elusive artists – I mean, Hiathaikim was such an incredible track and Anytime Will Do. people definitely want to see you

 

Yeah, I don’t think the live music adapts well to a concert setting. I can make people dance when I play records, but when it’s my own stuff I get so deep into the sound that I’d make things that make people wonder what I was doing.

 

Do you find that with Clown & Sunset changing to Other People, you’ve had to change your creative direction too?

 

I’m lucky enough that Nico is a good friend and I can focus on the personal aspects of my sound instead of trying to keep up with what the label does. The concept of the label is open enough that I feel I can push my music any way I want to and the label will always be a fitting companion.

 

How did you get tied in with Other People?

 

That’s sort of a long story. I’ve known Nico (Nicolas Jaar) since I was about 13 years old, I met him in highschool. We were both musicians and exchanged ideas over time, and when I started making electronic music I was sending him stuff for feedback. When I sent him Gravels one day, he thought it was really cool and suggested releasing it on Clown & Sunset. It became an EP and now I’ve continued with them.

 

 

That’s amazing that you’ve known Nico for so long.

 

Haha, yeah I knew him when I was young and starting with piano, and he was already listening to all sorts of things. I would ask him “What IS this?”

 

 

I think I have a lot of information here – thanks so much for you time.

Fader One, a Boston transplant via Hong Kong, is making waves with his newest project. Random Thoughts EP. It is always great to hear a new sound, and in this case a project coming from a producer with such a diverse background as Doyen Chung. But what I like most about the EP, apart from the new sound, are the transitions from one genre to the next while showcasing his talent. It’s something quite magical.  If I had to choose my favorite it would be the remix of  Sigur Ros’, Sæglópur, but I’ll let you come up with your own. Also, be sure to cop the free download so that you can listen to it whenever you please. Enjoi
