Digital Farm Animals
Buggin' Feat Tyson
With only the third single to his name which rounds out a brief extended play entitled Bugged Out, London’s Digital Farm Animals has already put together quite the impressive group of tracks. Fusing the stylings of synth-pop, nu-wave, house and a solid sprinkling of pop influenced instrumentation, DFA quickly slid onto our radar, and has remained near the top of our ‘artists to watch’ in 2013. The latest effort “Buggin’”, featuring the vocal stylings of Tyson, finds the young producer tackling a much more club-centered dancefloor vibe, pumped up by very retro and 80′s leaning synthesizers and a glittery kick-drum. Now that we’ve had the chance to feature all three tracks from Bugged Out over the last few months, including “Adore You” and “Bad Idea” as well as a revealing personal interview, it’s your turn to take our advice to go ahead and download the entire EP for the hefty price of one “Facebook Like” (which you can complete here) and start getting your Digital Farm Animals on.
Alright, ninjas. We’ve been hooking you up with free entry to Beta for over the past year. We know you’ve have some epic times, catching some of the most legendary talent EDM has to offer, and we’re on board to keep this thing going. We recently spoke with the Rolling Stone #1 Club in North America just last weekend, and you know what they said about you? That they love you guys, and they love the energy the ninjas bring to the crowd.
So, we’re once again giving you an opportunity to check out the best night club in North America for free. What all do you have to do to get in? It’s pretty damn easy. Just follow these steps:

DNA (Brodinski Remix)
We kept no secrets about our love of Ben Khan’s debut track, ‘Drive (Part 1)‘, and we’ll keep none about this one either: ‘Eden’ is another vital slice of future-soul. Displaying a deep mastery of songwriting as well as technical creativity, the elusive London-based artist again veers between influences to create a compelling sound that’s all his own.
Games (Passion Pit Remix)
Not too long ago we wrote up the delectable indietronica tune “Games” from German trio Claire. It’s simplistic and light hearted melody cross effortlessly in between the love soaked lyrics, creating a perfect pool side tune. Now that summer has come and gone, we’re finding ourselves wanting to hold on to those bikini laden memories, and luckily Passion Pit has done just that with their remix of this charming track.
The ever-so-well-known Cambridge based outfit has given this tune a slightly more dancy twist, yet still leaves most of the vocals perfectly in tact. It’s the perfect homage to warmer days as we cross over into the chillier months. Throw it on and enjoy what warm weather we have left.
Light and feathery vocals gliding over slightly muted synths welcome us into this gorgeous pop tune released just days ago from Brookyln based electro-pop outift Great Good Fine Ok.
While there’s limited information out there on these guys, we’re already hooked with their love laced lyrics and catchy melodies.
Another week has passed us by. Filled with texts, emails, long hours sitting at your desk, traffic, deadlines, and all the rest of the muck and mire that go along with the lame part of the week, we can now look ahead to two and a half blissful days of doing pretty much anything we want. Now, you could just sit at home alternating playing with your iPhone 5S and GTA5, or you can get out there and have a kick ass time. We suggest the latter.
So, put down the controller. Tuck your iPhone away in your pocket (unless you’re tweeting about how awesome this playlist is) and get after it this weekend. Per usual, please #danceirresponsibly.
