Who’s ready to party? We hope everyone of you will answer yes, but if not, we hope it’s because you are choosing to relax instead. Work isn’t for the weekend; our hearts go out to all of you who have to bring the week into the weekend. No matter what your circumstances are, we have a collection of dope free downloads for you. In fact, we have a dozen of them. Works in this week’s Friday Party Playlist come to us from producers like LEViT∆TE, Taylor Thomas, Ray Volpe, Seek N Destroy and many more. Ranging from future to trap to house, this week’s got a lot going on. Dive right in and enjoy your weekend. If you find yourself in party mode, don’t forget to #danceirresponsibly.
When an artist branches out, it’s a great thing. Some fans don’t like it, but even if they don’t make something exceptional, we can at least appreciate their desire for growth and creative adventure. Luckily, when Revoke chilled things out with his new single “Don’t Leave the Light On,” he created yet another amazing record that we love. Not only that, but we get a music video for it!
“Don’t Leave the Light On” is a total diversion for Revoke. It’s more of an indie record than a dance one, which is totally fine by us. Tom Cantillon did an incredible job with his vocal performance, pushing this one over the top. The music video is a straightforward juxtaposition of imagery between a relationship at different stages. We see innocent kids together playing, as well as their adult counterparts. Enjoy the video today, and head over to iTunes for a copy of the single.
Tigre (Broad City Soundtrack Exclusive)
The web-to-TV series Broad City is known for many things, one being its soundtrack. The collection of tracks have been curated by Matt FX, who also is credited as an executive producer of the soundtrack. Although the soundtrack is set for release on October 28th, Milan Records in conjunction with Comedy Central Records has pushed one of the singles out for stream already. That single is Jarina De Marco‘s “Tigre.”
“Tigre” is a vibrant record that takes influence from pop, Latin America and dancehall. It’s a memorable single, which is why it shouldn’t be a surprise that it got picked up by a television show. Fans of Major Lazer and Die Antwoord will especially love this record, as it has a few elements that are reminiscent of these acts. Jarina De Marco shines in “Tigre,” which is appealing to listeners who usually don’t find themselves latching onto these style records. There’s just something special about “Tigre” that we can’t put our finger on. Have a listen, maybe you will find it! “Tigre” is only available to stream, but will be purchasable along with the soundtrack on digital stores at the end of October. If you want the vinyl, you can grab it exclusively through Urban Outfitters.
On October 1 and 2, the best music festival in San Diego is returning to the Waterfront Park for the fourth time. Can’t believe it’s been two full years since CRSSD Fest made its debut. This year’s lineup features a handful of returners, as well as some of the hottest electronic artists in the game right now.
Headlining this year’s festival, we have Sweden’s very own Miike Snow, who made an epic comeback following their new album. ZHU, who is absolutely crushing it with his new album Generationwhy, and will be bringing sexy back as he’s making his second appearance at CRSSD. Also Lido, who is making waves with a series of album teasers following a live album debut at Coachella. We are almost certain that he will play unreleased material off his new album, which will come out a few days after CRSSD. We simply can’t contain our excitement as artists like Ta-Ku, Louis The Child, Malaa, REZZ, MNEK and FKJ are all making their first debut. It’s safe to say this year’s lineup is the best to date – it’s house music galore and then some.
And The Bubble Burst
There’s nothing quite like waking up on Friday morning. The sun is shining a little brighter, traffic seems to flow a little easier than usual, and no matter how much work you have lying in front of you, it’s not as daunting knowing that a few days of freedom are right around the bend. This particular Friday has another big, shiny layer added to it, though, as we bring you a first look and listen to this brand new tune from Newcastle six-piece High Tide 15:47.
Within seconds of pressing play, you’ll find yourself completely entranced, helplessly grinning, bobbing your head, and incessantly tapping you foot. These reactions are brought fourth by playful percussion-style vocal harmonies that follow along the beat, providing a lighthearted mood from the start. From there, reverb-drenched guitars come charging in, adding a perfect amount of energy. The cherry on top? Steven Gordon’s psychedelically-treated, hazy vocals, which should have you singing along in no time.
This may be the first time you’re hearing of the lads, but after experiencing support from acts like Primal Sream, Wolf Alice, Eagulls, and countless others, it won’t be long before you’re seeing their name pop up on the regular.
If you’re feeling what Steven Gordon (vocals, guitar), Dan Murray (guitar), Al Charnley (guitar), Nick Hodgson (bass), Gaz Murray (keys) and Cole Gilroy (drums) are laying down, make sure to head out today and pick up this gem on iTunes, or add it to your “Favorites” playlist on Spotify.
Fall weather is right around the corner, which means it’s go time. You only have a few, fleeting weeks left of summer, before the leaves and subsequent snow starts falling. With that in mind, we strongly encourage you to get out of the house this weekend and head down to Beta Nightclub to check out another stacked weekend of beats.
Per usual, we’re making it incredibly easy for you to get off your couch and head down. Why’s that? Because we’re hooking you up with free entry.
– Head to the front door and enter the club before 11pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Get there before 5:00p on Sunday.
– Show this post to the cashier (Valid for 21+ only).
– The deal is valid for FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AND SUNDAY this week.
Luna Shadows has quickly become one of California’s prized possessions. In a short amount of time, she’s gained a lot of traction for her crossover style and unique brand. Her imagery may be in black and white, but her creations are just the opposite; full of life and color.
On July 1st, her Birthday, she released her debut EP, Summertime. One of the lead singles off the project was “Hallelujah California,” which now has its own music video. The imagery within this piece is a fascinating collection of visuals from around her Southern California home. She keeps within her aesthetic, which until now we have only experienced in photographs. Now that it has been unleashed in video form, the experience the viewer has is moving. Luna Shadows is a true artist that is able to not only entertain, but to really play with your emotions. We have huge love for her, as well as the other individuals who helped on this project, including the Ride or Cry Collective, Production Club and many more. Watch the video today and hit up iTunes for the full EP.
