Sure, musicians get writer’s block, but us listeners, we get something too. It’s like “The Music Library Block”. Those times when we can’t find anything to listen to, even though the plethora of songs we have collected over the span of our entire musical lives floats in a giant cloud that is easily accessible at all moments in time. It happens to us all. You know it does. We get bored of all our favorites and tired of everything else. But before you spend your day music-less because of the frustration of finding something to listen to, float your way over to the Indie Dojo. Our playlists go way, way back AND you can continuously stream if you so choose. Those blocks don’t stand a chance ’round these parts …
Far From You (EP Version)
Just Like Normal
Between Friends (Qrion remix)
You know why there’s no insurance-slinging animal who consistently asks what day it is on Fridays? That’s because every knows it’s Friday. There’s never a question that we’re approaching two days of sweet, sweet freedom.
As we approach the weekend, it’s always important to stock up on solid tunes to groove to. While we will have another solid Friday Party Playlist coming out this afternoon, we thought we’d kick off the vibes earlier than usual, and we brought in ELICIT to do so.
Following up his radio release an amazing Prince re-work of “I Wanna Be Your Lover” on BBC Radio1, we’re stoked to bring you and exclusive mix from this mutli-grenre producer. Fusing together some newcomers like Lion Babe, G R A D E S, Vic Mensa, and Wookie with classics from the likes of Maya Jane Cole, Daft Punk, and LL Cool J, this 45 minute mix is perfect to carry you through your work day.
Hedegaard ft Lukas Graham
Happy Home (Sam Feldt Remix)
Sam Feldt is back with another killer remix! Spicing up the meaningful track originally by Hedegaard and Lukas Graham, the Dutch producer is definitely making a statement with this memorable tune. The vocals by Danish electronic group Lukas Graham soar powerfully throughout the track, and are accompanied by a series of his signature synth, taking us on a roller coaster ride of emotions. This tune is about paying tribute to the lost family members, and reminiscing the good times we all have as a family. It will surely hit you right in the feels. The deep factor gives it a more upbeat approach as you sing your heart out to this track.
This new remix is to be released via Spinnin’ Records on February 2nd. Kudos to Sam Feldt and make sure to follow him on Soundcloud for more dope tunes!
It’s that time of year again. What do y’all think?
Tickets on sale tomorrow here.
A week into the new year. How are those resolutions coming along? If one of them happens to be opening your ears and hearts to all new music, you’ve come to the right place. The Indie Dojo will help you conquer your goals for the next 359 days…and then some.
I Love You So
Flirt (feat. DrewsThatDude)
Producers Cavalier and DrewsThatDude link up on this remix of one of my personal favorites from the King of R&B, R. Kelly. These two really breathe major life back into this 2007 hit. I can vividly remember the weight that this song used to carry when I was back in High School. The lyrical delivery from Kells is as magical as ever. This rework feels natural and lures you in with its soft and elegant intro. Once that bass and melody come in though, this one really goes off. Not the best song for a complicated couple to enjoy together, yet I would still suggest it as a great night cap. It’s been a busy winter for Cavalier as he recently released a six track project entitled PIETA, which you can find on Bandcamp. DrewsThatDude has been quite active as well. Head over to his soundcloud to find some awesome work with Gravez, B N J M N, C. Justice, Fortune & much more. This is a perfect R&B tune to start off 2015. A tip of the cap is truly deserved.
And here we are…..The stress of the holidays has been replaced by the excitement of the new year and the 52 new weekly Indie Dojo’s ahead! Cheers to a prosperous indie year!
