#NOTYOURS Ft. JUNGLEPUSSY
Scooter Island is the freshman collaborative project of Matt FX Feldman, a 23 year old Producer and talented Music Supervisor based in New York. His genre-defying formula has begun to flourish. ‘Not Yours’ is an impressive and well executed tune with tons of attitude. Exemplifying strength, Brooklyn rapper Junglepussy joins with a vicious verse to pleasantly compliment the swanky production of HW&W member Sweater Beats. It’s an anthem that will keep our spirits up until the Spring comes. The soon to be released self-titled LP from Scooter Island will feature over 20 contributors, including Obey City, Salomon Faye, and Ducky. A clip from ‘Not Yours’ debut on an episode of Comedy Central’s new hit series, Broad City; read more about it here. Expect more music from this exciting project in the coming months.
All We Need (Louis Futon Remix) Feat. Shy Girls
Fresh off of a new EP, Louis Futon has decided to hit us with yet another outstanding remix. As the number of Odesza remixes continues to multiply, some can get lost in the madness, but Louis Futon takes a slight deviation from your typical renditions with an almost R&B edge. Retaining the sultry Shy Girls vocals, this tune bounces along nicely with purpose and a presence that sits comfortably amongst prior releases in Louis Futon’s collection. Odesza could easily play the entirety of their festival circuit with the remixes that have been put out of them (just on ‘Say My Name’ alone), but this version of ‘All We Need’ is sure to finds its way into their sets and plenty of other artists’ as well. It’s a just a fun tune overall that’s equal parts sensual and upbeat. Yet again, we’re lucky as fans because it’s up for a free download, so don’t hesitate to grab it HERE.
Save Me- Tez Cadey Remix
Early in December, we featured the utterly addictive sonic dance stylings of Listenbee’s “Save Me”, and of course it was only a matter of time before the remixes began pouring in for the viral tune. Alas, it is our duty to separate the killer from the filler, which is exactly what we’ve done as we’ve got a hold of the first stellar “Save Me” remix, this one coming from 21 year-old Parisian dance producer Tez Cadey. Cadey takes the tune, and reworks a sterling set of drums while dusting his own view of synth work throughout to create a refreshing take on a track we haven’t been able to shake from our in-house dance playlist since its release. NYC’s Lokal Lagend imprint continues to impress us with this one, so take a few minutes and stream Tez Cadey’s take on Listenbee’s “Save Me” above.
Involved Ft. Vic Mensa (Prod. Kaytranada)
Just in time for your Friday turn up, SaveMoney’s very own Towkio has released a funky new tune that’ll give you the irresistible urge to boogie the night away. Getting the dynamic duo of Vic Mensa and Kaytranada “Involved” on this one was a smart move, as the pair’s undeniable chemistry shines through once again. The Chitown natives exchange sleek raps atop a retro fueled instrumental with plenty of bounce, provided by Kaytra himself. At this point it’s pretty clear that these guys can do no wrong, which means fans should be rushing to listen to anything these two are “Involved” in. Check out the song above, and be on the lookout for Towkio’s .wav Theory, set to drop this April.
HARD Summer 2014 Live Sets: JUSTIN JAY
As we roll over into the month of February, we’re eagerly awaiting the announcement of a new Resident Artist. It’s something that we look forward to after the first of every month. There’s just something about getting everything lined up for four full weeks of content based around a single artist that gets us pretty damn stoked.
This month, we’re pleased to welcome in the youngest member of the Dirtybird family, none other than Mr. Justin Jay. Even at the young age of just 21, this Angelino has already garnered support from giants like Claude VonStroke, Jamie Jones, Disclosure, and Pete Tong. Using elements of his soul, funk and jazz roots, he brings in naturally dancy elements to his house tunes, creating forward-thinking and infectious soundscapes worthy of not only the best moments on the dance floor, but also those spent grooving in your bathroom mirror while getting ready for the day.
Coming around the bend, you’ll be catching an exclusive interview, some new music, and a selection of Jay’s favorite tunes. Make sure to keep up with him on facebook and twitter so you don’t miss out.
Cashmere Cat & DJ Mustard
Yes, you’re reading that right. Cashmere Cat and DJ Mustard. I had to say it again for it to really sink in. Our favorite feline has been slowly making his reign known in the American hip-hop scene, what with the Ludacris, Wiz Khalifa and Jeremih joint, “Party Girls,” and “Body Language” with Usher, Tinashe and Kid Ink. That’s already an impressive résumé in only two songs. Even though he’s stayed fairly behind the scenes with these prior releases, a change is occurring, and “Ice Rink” is about to be the catalyst.
You can’t argue that DJ Mustard is everywhere. With Cashmere’s unpredictable production and apparent fondness for hip-hop driven remixes, this collaboration makes perfect sense. It works so well too. The bouncy nature of Mustard’s beats squaring off with Cashmere’s ice cold synths, vocal chopping and command of space favor each other for a spectacular result. While it may just be another day for Mustard, it’s exciting to see Cashmere Cat’s consistent rise going so smoothly. This mean nothing but spectacular things for the future of hip-hop, and there’s even been hints of more tunes with these two on the way. Let’s hope so.
We made it ninjas…we made it through another excruciating week full of monotonous routines, early wake up calls, and caffeine overdoses. Now that we’re finally in the hands of the glorious palms of Friday, we can grab the aux cord and a whole lot of booze because this weekend is about to be on another level. We’ve got another kick ass playlist for all of you animals out there, so make sure you make yourselves proud and give us a little booty shake to kick off your weekend the right way.
As always, #danceirresponsibly.
