[Electronic] Salty Springs – Cucknite

Salty Springs
Cucknite

Portland, Oregon based producer Salty Springs presents “Cucknite,” a chill house Fortnite character inspired debut release, as he set out to design music that reflects the Fortnite video game characters’ emotes.

As if playing the 1st person shooting game, and winning wasn’t enough, the Fortnite community felt the need to produce music to accompany the feeling, which Cucknite cheekily describes below:

Fornite is the first video game I’ve played since RuneScape. It’s the only game that’s as addicting as heroin. The rush of killing someone and then them watching you do a dance immediately afterwards is extremely fulfilling, and the only way I could find more fulfillment is by dancing to my own songs after a kill.

[Event Review] Gabriel Gárzon-Montano and Kali Uchis Bring the Soul to The Warfield (SF) 9/18/19

Nearly a year and a half ago, I had the opportunity to see Gabriel Gárzon-Montano perform in an intimate venue here in San Francisco. The crowd was small but the atmosphere was deferential to the rising R&B star. Reserved, soulful artistry was the theme of that show, held shortly after the release of Gárzon-Montano’s sophomore album Jardín.

This week, Gárzon-Montano played a much different show at the Warfield in San Francisco. Larger venue, larger crowd; an eager yet uninitiated group more rabidly interested in the headliner of the night, Kali Uchis. Nevertheless, Gabriel Gárzon-Montano put on an intense spectacle. The performance featured interpretive dancing, multiple costume changes, and even a shirtless stint. The set was condensed to include just his most popular songs, like “6 8”, which kick-started his rise in popularity. Gárzon-Montano did his best to match the energy and performance style of the evening’s fiery headliner, but did so in his own way. It was an interesting experience to see transformation of his performing style, reflective of his growth and flexibility as a performing artist.

The audience seemed quite appreciative and genial to Gabriel Gárzon-Montano, but the main draw of the evening was undoubtedly Kali Uchis. Between sets, the all-ages crowd was chanting her name in anticipation. During some songs, Kali only had to hit the accents and runs; enthusiastic fans sang all her lines for her. One of the highlights of her set was an electrifying cover of Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love”, a late 70’s jam that surely everyone has heard at some point in their life. Throughout the night, Kali wooed the audience with her singing chops, seductive dancing, and charismatic likeability.

 

If you’re a fan of either artist, check out their upcoming tour dates here. More shots from the evening below:

[Music Video] Harry Nathan – Rooftops

The Berklee School of Music student Harry Nathan has been making some solid moves as of late. The Australian producer and DJ dropped some hot beats at Ultra and has now come out with a music video for his single “Rooftops.” The indie-pop style of this track is phenomenal, just as the music video is.

Harry’s a creative person whose circle is full of other creatives. For this music video he partnered up with his friends Odeya Rush and Ryan Lee, both of whom worked on the Goosebumps feature film. Upon viewing the video, you wouldn’t guess this was just a group of friends making a video. It just happens to be that all involved are extremely talented prodigies. Enjoy!

[Indie] gabriel black – beautiful life

gabriel black
beautiful life

The one and only gabriel black has caught our ears heavily over the past year with a handful of impressive singles. Although we like to focus in on the music, we also must admit he’s got a cool laidback brand going for him as well. Musically, he recently released his debut EP, beautiful life, and we’re sharing the title track with you today.

Don’t let “beautiful life” be the only listen on the EP either as the rest of it is well worth the listen. However we’re focusing in on this unique indie crossover tune that we just can’t get out of our heads. It truly is a beautiful song that doesn’t try too hard. It’s simple, straightforward and amazing. If you didn’t know of gabriel black before, you’re in luck. Welcome aboard!
