[Festival Preview] CRSSD Festival: Oliver Nelson’s Prep Playlist, San Diego 10/1-2

San Diego isn’t the first locale you think of when talking about big music festivals but that’s changed quickly this year with the help of CRSSD Festival, a collaboration between San Diego’s FNGRS CRSSD & festival heavy weights Goldenvoice. With a stacked bill and idyllic backdrop, the first installment in March proved a huge success (you can read our review here) helping cultivate a fanbase sure to bring their friends along this time around. The fall edition of CRSSD boasts possibly an even stronger lineup than the last promising the perfect place to both see some of your favorite acts and discover new ones. For all you ninjas who will be in Waterfront Park next weekend, nu-disco aficionado Oliver Nelson, who will be playing at the City Steps stage, put together a playlist to help you prepare. If you’re still undecided, it’s not too late–you can grab tickets here.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #43

Chill Dojo #43, where have you been hiding? For any keen ninjas playing along at home, you may have thought we’d gone and jumped straight to #44 and skipped out on a key edition. For anyone who didn’t realize, congrats anyway because we have another playlist of great music to make up for the lack of chill last week. Everyone’s a winner!

And what better prize than our first track from Danish musician Galimatias which is an absolute delight. There is certainly something going on in Scandinavia right now when you have artists like this and Norway’s Cashmere Cat producing some truly special sounds that are taking the world by storm. ‘Marshmallow Grove’ and ‘Lakeside Blu’ are just a few examples of this magic being brewed for our ears. And if we’re talking global sensations, Bondax have certainly been gaining attention far beyond their UK homeland, and their latest summer jam ‘Giving it All’ is certain to keep that momentum going. But it’s not all happening in Europe, and there’s plenty to enjoy from US artists as well. This sexy remix of ‘Her Favorite Song’ from Oliver is out to prove just that,  as well as another batch of ‘C O O L’ remixes with the release of Le Youth’s EP. Dojo favourite Lane 8 is our pick of the bunch, so if you’ve happened to miss all the other versions we’ve featured, make sure not to sleep on this one.  Now it’s been a while since we’ve ended the playlist with a fun little novelty track, and in late celebration of the 4th of July, we’ve got Giraffage’s hilarious remake of ‘Party in the USA’. As amusing as it is, it’s actually quite impressive how the quality production transforms the grating tone of the Miley Cyrus original into something so listenable.

But no matter where you hail from, we’re celebrating the amazing sounds coming from all corners of the globe. That’s what music is all about. Peace out.
