Still Parade
Actors (Dinnerdate Remix)

There are some music lovers out there who just melt when it comes to slow, dreamy songs that ooze indie vibes and echo longing voices of lyrical ambiguity.  Then there are some who can appreciate the sentiment, but need a little more oomph before they can fully warm up to the feel the song is going for. For those of us in the second category, we have talented artists like Dinnerdate to help us out, with an ear for the right original to work their magic over, opening it up to an entirely new audience with their own musical preferences.

The beauty in this remix, other than the obvious elegance of the sound itself, is the fact that it caters to listeners in both of those categories, staying true enough to the original to satisfy this fan-base, but also working in its own touch for those craving a rhythmic beat to go with their serving of indie goodness. It’s the perfect balance of both worlds, and the perfect way for one of our favorite artists to break his period of relative silence over the last few months. For those wanting even more, there should be plenty more in the works from this name before the year is out. This will certainly help to tide us over until then.

Problem (Laura Zocca cover) (Chris Meid Remix)

Ever come across a remix that just works so magically well that you completely forget about how the original tune sounds like? Well we have one of those for you today. London-based producer Chris Meid released this remix of Laura Zocca‘s cover of Ariana Grande’“Problem”, in which he completely flips the track making it his own. Starting off with pleasant piano chords and a tropical synth line, the tune gradually brightens up your mood as it goes along. The skilled vocals from Zocca are definitely fitting for this tropical goodness Chris Meid creates.

Following his collaborative track with Felix Jaehn a while back, the talented producer is definitely making a name for himself by coming out with tunes like this one. We are excited to see what else Chris has up his sleeve. Stream above and head to Chris’s Facebook page for a free download.

California Gurls (Matt DiMona Remix)

After each and every weekend, it becomes extremely difficult to enter back into reality because all we really want to do is relive our blacked slurs from Saturday night. As we sluggishly get ourselves out of bed to suffer through yet another monotonous and mundane Monday, we realized that we needed that extra ‘oomf’ to not only cure this unbearable hangover, but to also lift our spirits and give us a reason to not slip into the negativity that Monday’s tend to project. Well ninjas, get ready to become a California girl for the day because we have the ultimate tropical remedy from Matt DiMona that will undoubtedly make you want to grab your bikini, sip on long island ice teas, and soak up the Cali sun in the middle of October.

The Los Angeles producer decided to take on the fun, highly addictive and intoxicating radio hit, “California Gurls” from none other than Katy Perry. Filled with subtle tropical elements, an adorable piano melody, and a whole lot of ambient vibes, Matt DiMona melts our popsicles and elevates our sun-kissed souls to heights unimaginable. We are extremely pleased to share the latest from Matt in the form of a premiere because he sure did tickle our inner Katy Perry to the point of no return. As we continue to indulge on these succulent frequencies, make sure you lather on the SPF and prepare for the ultimate third degree sunburn because it only gets hotter the more you play it. Grab this freebie while you can and simmer in these Summer vibes for the rest of your day…we guarantee you’ll be floating in the clouds.

[Event Review] Kygo – Bang Bang, San Diego

Processed with VSCOcam with a4 preset

(PC: Lori Luers)

Kygo was nothing short of amazing last Saturday in San Diego. Taking topical house to Bang Bang in downtown SD, Kygo brought down the HOUSE (get it?) and gave a high energy performance on stage. The 22-year-old producer from Norway started off the night with one of his most played remixes, “I See Fire”, which immediately got the crowd pumped up and cheering in excitement. It’s hard to imagine how he managed to channel such positive energy from his music, as you see nothing but smiles across the venue.

Playing banger remix after remix, Kygo’s performance was entertaining throughout his entire set. Some notable highlights include “Cut Your Teeth” by Kyla La Grange, “Stolen Dance” by Milky Chance and “Midnight” by Coldplay. To everyone’s surprise, he even threw in unreleased material in his set, include a BANKS remix that left the crowd in awe. Being comparably slower and more mellow than other deep house music, Kygo’s tropical house showed such distinctiveness and character while being massively appealing. It is amusing to see how his music got everyone dancing their pants off and singing along to all the lyrics, even though tropical house seemed an acquired taste for club music.

To close off his set, Kygo dropped “Sexual Healing” and his remix of Ed Sheeran vs Passenger “No Diggity X Thrift Shop”, ending the night on a high note. You could tell everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music just as much as Kygo did. While his remixes undoubtedly steal everyone’s heart, we would love to see more original material and collaborations.

Following his replacement of the almighty Avicii at TomorrowWorld, Kygo continued to prove that he’s one of the frontrunners of the revival movement of house music. Being able to attract such a large following in just a year’s time says something about Kygo’s talent.

To catch the rest of his Endless Summer Tour with Kygo and friends (Amtrac and Anna Lunoe), check out the following dates:

10/12     The Fonda Theatre – Los Angeles, CA

10/14     The Beacham – Orlando, FL
