Aussie VJ and producer Pogo has built up a name for himself with his remixes of sequences from films, such as Disney’s ‘Alice In Wonderland’, which has received millions of hits. ‘Boo Bass’ is an inspired reworking of Monsters, Inc., one of the biggest kids’ films from Pixar. With the combination of childish yet surreal noises and soft electronica, ‘Boo Bass’ is an intriguing take on the film and an incredible way to relive the film.
WHAT? How did these three come together to produce a song? Turns out it is part of an on going series from Converse and Journey’s partnering up to give all of us new music.
It appears spring is a foot with a fresh-picked collection of colorful Chucks, available exclusively at Journeys. And, in addition to the 8 new hues, there’s also a bold new Converse song, featuring Mark Foster, A-Trak, and Kimbra. Plug into the original track, peep the video, snag the shoes.
Mark Foster (of Foster the People), A-Trak and Kimbra have created ‘Warrior’ a fresh summer-sounding track with authentic vocals and catchy-summer melodies. Stream it bellow and you can download it here.
“A Little Letting Go” is the second perfectly formed single to be lifted from Mr Fogg’s forthcoming sophomore album “Eleven”. As with his previous single “Stay Out Of The Sun”, Mr Fogg’s intimate vocals soar above a bed of delicate percussion and warm synthetic tones, delivering a striking preview of his new long-player.
Rochester, New York chillwavers Joywave put out their latest EP ‘Koda Vista’ the other day, and it’s ben getting a lot of love online. Stand-out track ‘Anemone”s combination of icily blissful synths and vocals creates a hypnotic piece of darkly magical electro. An essential release for any collection, ‘Koda Vista’ is available on Bandcamp now.
Jai Paul, the elusive genius behind last year’s smash ‘BTSTU’, returns from the the shadows with a demo of ‘Jasmine’, the first new material we’ve heard from the UK singer-songwriter in nearly a year. There are no further release details yet but here’s to hoping that he doesn’t keep us waiting so long for another offering of soulful, warped pop.
Vancouver’s Teen Daze has been a big hit in the blogosphere for a while now- I myself first wrote about his track “Brooklyn Sunburn” earlier this year and, with constant activity surrounding his name, I think this will continue to be a big year for the up and coming producer. With his first full length All of Us, Together scheduled for release on May 8th, Teen Daze has been on tour to gain traction and begin steamrolling the hype. His latest release “Fantasy” fits in with the synthetic/sincere breed of electro that we are supposed to expect from the new album- but is only available on a tour EP at shows.
Producer Jimmy Tamborello, better known as Dntel, has a special place in The Music Ninja’s heart. His exquisitely organic experiments are able to break barriers that extend through the very genre he pioneered. Glitch-rich and completely sporadic, the one half genius of Postal Service creates sounds that can be easily digested by non-experimental listeners. Dntel is planning to release a new album called Aimless, and we literally cannot wait any second longer to listen to it. Aimless features contributions from people like Baths and Nite Jewel.
