[Electronic] Douchka – Infantile EP

Strap in for a special treat from Douchka and Nowadays Records. The release of the genre-breaching EP Infantile came late last month, but it’s so good that we’re going to have to show it some love still. If it slipped through your grips like us, don’t fret, Infantile is here now for your aural pleasure.

Douchka cooked up a handful of tracks for this project, including the single “Call You Mine” that we previously supported prior to the full EP’s release. Collaborators on the project include Lia who was on the previously mentioned single, as well as Hi Levelz who brings an artistic splash on two tracks. The thing is, we have four of those songs for you today, but you can exclusively listen to the intro, interlude and outro through digital services. Every song on here is something you’re going to want to sit back and listen to in full. Do so today and treat yourself on this hump day.

’No Reason feat. Hi Levelz’
’Call You Mine feat. Lia’
’Douchka – This Mood feat. Hi Levelz’

[Event Preview] Joe Goddard (DJ Set) @ Bar Standard – 5/17 – Denver, CO

Fresh off of the release of genre-busting LP Electric Lines (from which you can stream “Lose Your Love” & “Music Is the Answer” below), Hot Chip founding member and all around production kingpin Joe Goddard has kicked off 2017 glowingly, finding himself in the midst of a lengthy run of North American and European performances. Over the next few weeks, Goddard’s schedule is littered with sets across the U.S. including nights in New York City (5/19), Chicago (5/26), and Miami (5/27); and we’re all kinds of perked up to catch the studio wizard in the flesh, especially on the heels of Electric Lines. Back in December we featured the music video for “Lose Your Love”, which is just one of the many bright spots on his latest long player. Goddard flexes his production muscle effortlessly throughout Electric Lines, tackling the structures and sounds of disco, house, pop, R&B & techno head on, and coming out on the other end largely unscathed. If we’re going off of Goddard’s latest release, we can expect an eclectically programmed set filled with many of his contributions to the worlds of dance and electronic music.

Tomorrow night Joe Goddard will man the decks at the intimate Bar Standard in Denver, CO on behalf of our friends at TheHundred Presents, for which you can still get tickets for here. Enjoy our mini preview playlist in anticipation of Goddard’s remaining U.S. tour dates, and for our Denver friends, we’ll see you on the floor.

[Denver Event Preview/Ticket Giveaway] TMN Presents: Fenech-Soler @ Lost Lake – 5/16

The U.K. based duo consisting of brothers Ross and Ben Duffy, Fenech-Soler, have supplied our highly sensitive Ninja ears with some of the most danceable, tasteful, and wistful electro-pop for years. First appearing on our hallowed pages all the way back in 2009, Fenech-Soler have fashioned an even tighter grasp on their cheery synth-pop iterations in the time since. This year, the pair have already unveiled two full releases in the form of their LP Zilla, and the appropriately titled cover EP The Covers; which both sound of a band confidently coming to terms with their sound while steadily refining it. Loaded with personality and excellent fits of experimentation, their latest releases have been straightforward, unashamed pop music fusing indie sensibilities with grandiose synths and razor-sharp electronic production that we know will play wonderfully in a live scenario. Yet another reason we are thrilled to be presenting their next live date in beautiful Denver, CO at Lost Lake Lounge.

[Electronic] Chris Schambacher – My World

Chris Schambacher is coming in clutch with three versions of his new song “My World” as well as a remix. Instead of keeping a few edits secret for his live sets, Chris decided it was only right to give fans a chance to grab all three versions he had on his computer. Released through Last Arrival Records, “My World” is a sensational record, no matter which one you choose to play.

The first is the most unique, expressing a sound that is all electronic, but doesn’t really adhere to anything that needs labeling. It’s cool, calm and oh so smooth. Next comes two house versions, with one being a bit more future house and the other having a bit more prog flavor to it. As we said before there is also a remix of “My World” that comes from Glenn Morrison. He continues the four-to-the-floor grind with his take that closes out the EP with some proper vibes.

[Electronic] Exmag – Ten Thousand Chains

Exmag
Ten Thousand Chains

Let’s get sexy this Saturday. Thanks to Exmag and their new jam “Ten Thousand Chains” we can do just that. However you want to interpret get sexy, you can do as you wish, we’re not going to stop you. Neither will Exmag or Majestic Casual who pushed this dreamy single out.

“Ten Thousand Chains” starts off with a little classic R&B swagger that transitions into a more soulful, relaxed state. Celestial and heavenly come to mind when the heart of the song is taking you away to new worlds. It’s one of those songs that feels big, as though it’s grabbing a hold of your entire existence, encompassing everything around you. With the craziness of festival season upon us, it’s nice to here a cool gem like this peep through the ruckus.

[Music Video] Vargas & Lagola – Dolores (The Awakening)

We love music videos that are created by individuals who aren’t trying too hard for something. Over-the-top videos seem to becoming a staple in electronic music, but Vargas & Lagola don’t seem to care. That’s totally fine with us as the music video for their song “Dolores (The Awakening)” is beautifully stunning and just about as simple as you can get.

If the duo were going for a classy, but stylish music video, then they nailed it. They rely on the beauty of nature, in particular flowers, to entertain the viewer. That is, until they make a surprising switch to a different set of home video images that definitely isn’t what you expect, but it fits. The energetic song whisks you through these images, disregarding any expectations you have. It’s a ride and you’re just along for it. Want a copy of the track? It’s out on digital services today.

[Electronic] CVBZ – Vicodin

Let CVBZ take the pain away with his new single “Vicodin.” The Oregon to Los Angeles musician just dropped this hot single today through Vault Recordings. Vocally driven with pop sensibilities, “Vicodin” has everything a proper hit needs and as you’d imagine, it is quite catchy.

“Vicodin” is just that: musical medicine. It will wash over you with a feeling of bliss that is inescapable. The vibrant melodies and seductive soundscapes are just some of the parts that make this magical track what it is. CVBZ’s vocal on this one is top notch and his production is magnificent, showing that he’s a big contender in the dance music world. With so many people *trying* to sing on their own tracks, it’s great to hear someone really excel like this.
