[Electro] Dr. Fresch – No Introduction EP

Dr. Fresch recently took his sound down a new road and in doing so he has further flexed his musical abilities straight in our faces, or ears. His EP, No Introduction, comes with four singles including his already successful track “Fire.”

Released on Insomniac Records, No Introduction brings the heat right away and never lets up. The collection of songs share a similar umbrella style in electro, but Dr. Fresch and company, including Mina Knock and JACKNIFE, don’t just trudge forward with watered down dance music. Instead they burst forth with an amazing, cohesive project that pays homage to classic tracks while also showing where this genre is headed.

Born Dirty & Anna Lunoe
Badass

Born Dirty and Anna Lunoe are bad asses without question. It makes sense that they’d come together for a collaboration which is just what they’ve done with “Badass” on Mad Decent. You wouldn’t necessarily think such a club banger would have been started during a pregnancy, but you’d be wrong.

After the initial start and a little hiatus, Born Dirty and Anna Lunoe came back together to finish this party starter. The liberating record simply asks for you to let your inhibitions fall by the way side so you can live it up and dance. The retro-inspired tune has everything going right for it from the grooves to the vocal to all the minor little details that might go unnoticed upon first listen. If you wanna feel “Badass” then you’re about to thanks to this record. Get your copy today.

The 18th anniversary of one of Denver’s most storied music events, The Underground Music Showcase, is rapidly encroaching, bringing with it perhaps its heaviest-hitting lineup ever. What began as a one-night performance featuring just four bands, The UMS has steadily exploded into to a three-day music and arts festival featuring hundreds of performances.

Dotting the top end of this year’s addition of The Underground Music Showcase are more than a few TMN regulars. Among this year’s biggest highlights are the smooth indie-disco stylings of L.A. electronic duo Classixx, the infectious ciphers of B.J. the Chicago Kid, Deezie Brown & legendary hip-hop troupe Digable Planets, a healthy smattering of established indie acts including Greta Kline’s Frankie Cosmos project, ParallelephantsDeerhunter & Mothers, scuzzy rock sets from Alvvays, White Denim & Superchunk; not to mention the most eclectic handling of local talent we get to hear year after year including sets from olorado’s own CRL CRRLL, Aaron Bordas, Slow Caves, Bud Bronson & The Goodtimers and loads more.

Right now, special one-day GA tickets can be found for $40 over on their homepage with weekend passes for just $75. We’ll see you there in full force on July 27th, but until then, get in the UMS swing of things by streaming our playlist below.

[Electro] I am Sid – The Dancing Plague EP

Mmmmm, we love a good concept EP. Too bad I am Sid didn’t just settle for good, as his EP, The Dancing Plague, is a feat of electro few have managed to come close to. Inspired by some interesting events in history, most notably in the 1500’s where individuals went manic in a dancing fit and ended up dying. Gnarly stuff – but just the kind of crazy thing that inspires some incredible art.

In four tracks I am Sid captures the creepy, dark tone of the fatal events. Through gut-wrenching basslines and some powerful composition packed with raw melodies and haunting soundscapes, The Dancing Plague is one of the most powerful projects we’ve heard this year. It’s focused, dynamic and magnificently engaging – putting you right in the mix of the mania. The Dancing Plague is a must have. Period.

’I am Sid – Sydenham’s Chorea’
’I am Sid – Aachen 1374’
’I am Sid – Mass Psychogenic Illness’
’I am Sid – Strasbourg 1518’

[Music Video] Boston Bun – Spread Love (Paddington) feat. DVNO

Paddington is a classic character in children’s literature. Many of us grew up reading about his exploits all over and subsequently watching them on the big screen – although, I personally missed the feature. However, the Paddington love runs deep and the same can be said for Boston Bun whose single “Spread Love (Paddington)” plays off the bear’s legend.

Featuring DVNO, “Spread Love (Paddington) is an extremely uplifting deep house cut that is about as catchy as it gets. The same thing goes for the music video that is wild, crazy and all about fun love. Because Paddington is replaced, the wacky factor is multiplied tenfold. All in all this package of song/video is one of the more entertaining we’ve come across and you’ll likely agree. Enjoy!
