What a lovely outlet for our emotive side to come shining through this Wednesday. Scott Johnson’s solo act turned five-piece dream-pop outfit, Goodbye Chanel, just uncovered a brand new single “Foreva”, much to our deilght. Fueled by a surf-rock inspired guitar hook a la Dick Dale, brought up to contemporary speed with the employment of a shoegazey reverb filter, Goodbye Chanel’s hazy, minimal-pop instrumentation wraps itself ideally around Johnson’s yearning delivery -in the same vein as Wild Nothing or early Washed Out nonetheless- to create the perfect statement for their forthcoming EP Hot City Nights. “Foreva” is given the perfect amount of room to build; from the slow burning intro to the first bridge, carefully adding choice backup guitar licks and snare heavy, but ultimately light percussion patterning throughout. There is a thought evoking, storytelling sense to the tune, which hooks its listener from the onset for what is a pensive sonic journey. Goodbye Chanel’s impending Hot City Nights extended play is geared up for an April 21 release ( a day too late for some) on Dead Young Records, and if it’s anything as musically layered as debut LP Through Night to Paradise you can bet we’ll be with them every step of the way until then. Slow down your day a bit through the use of a little Goodbye Chanel above.
There are some days when things just don’t go our way. From the moment we wake up till the time we fall asleep, it’s like someone is playing one never-ending, detailed ass trick on us. If today happens to be one of those days, you’ve come to right place. We’ve got a planned daily playlist, every Tuesday, at the same time. Just in case you need a little grounding in your life.

Armand Van Helden & Hervé
'Power Of Bass'
It may be the nostalgic house purist in me, but every single time a new track from Armand Van Helden is unveiled, it inspires visions of the early NYC house scene and just how much the man had to do with it. On Van Helden’s latest tune “Power of Bass”, a collaboration with Cheap Thrills label boss Hervé, it is apparent that the Grammy nominated producer hasn’t slowed down in the slightest, especially if you’ve followed he and A-Trak’s Duck Sauce project. “Power of Bass”, is a monster of a future house tune, kicking off almost immediately with a throwback synth line that only artists in the genre with as much experience as these two could put over; but also draws from their current contemporary takes on four-four dance rhythms. Carefully layed swells and high energy hi-hats fuel its heart, and when they’re paired with such a choice bassline, as a listener there is no other choice but to start twerking your proverbial stuff. The colossal club track is forthcoming from the almighty Ministry of Sound Recordings out of the U.K., but for now we’re happy to have you ninjas listen to it here. Check out Armand Van Helden and Hervé’s joint jam “Power of Bass” above.
J. Cole is definitely a happy man today. Not only is it his birthday, but he also announced that his Dreamville imprint has come to an agreement with Interscope records. In order to commemorate this momentous occasion, the Carolina native decided to drop this brand new compilation, featuring some of his cohorts like Bas, Omen and KQuick. “Revenge Of The Dreamers” is a pretty interesting project, with J. Cole only spitting on roughly half of the tracks, while the others are utilized to showcase the rest of the Dreamville roster. You can catch a few standouts from the tape below, and grab a free download at the link below. Also, after the jump you can read a short message tweeted out by Jermaine himself that details the journey of his label leading up to this point.

May The Bitter Man Win Feat. J. Cole
We can’t predict the future, it’s unhealthy to dwell on the past, and we should never overlook the present. Sometimes we need to just sit and chill awhile. Drown out the clutter and engage ourselves in the moment. And that is is why we are glad you’re here. Take a second to focus on something other than everything else. We’ve got a sweet little playlist to help you color your silence.
