[Electronic] Butch Clancy ft Amy K – Far Away From Me

Butch Clancy ft Amy K
Far Away From Me

Put your hands up for Detroit.
If you have not heard of the insanely talented electronic producer Butch Clancy yet then I am truly sorry. This Detroit native dabbles in everything from hip hop to house to dubstep while also throwing in his own personal drum beats. He has only been around since 2011 but his work has been recognized by names like Ellie Goulding, Zeds Dead and Steve Aoki. Clancy’s latest single “Far Away From Me” featuring the vocals of the lovely Amy K. The song is light and airy with Amy K’s high voice singing some powerful lyrics telling the story of a girl who just wants her guy in one piece. Clancy does a great job putting in electronic beats, piano and even a mix of dubstep with some drums throughout the whole song. Clancy continues to show why everyone in the electronic music world is taking notice of him, this song just reiterates his music abilities.

[Gorgeous] Badlands – Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty

One of our favorite parts of being music bloggers is stumbling across relatively unknown artists. Don’t get us wrong, we love hearing stuff from our favorites, but there’s also something about hearing someone completely new that’s just downright exciting.

Meet Badlands. This is their first song. The lead singer’s voice and harmonies carry effortlessly over the dark shoegazey rythmic drumming. Her repetitious use of “I’ll dream for you” helps create an atmospheric vibe that’s both welcoming and haunting. Badlands truly creates an experience with their track “Sleeping Beauty,” which is more than impressive for their first release.

Definitely keep your ears open for these guys, as we’re sure you’ll be hearing more from them as time goes on.

[Hip-Hop] Gilbere Forté – PRAY


Gilbere Forté first made waves a few years back when he appeared on the remix of “Alors on Danse” alongside Stromae and Kanye West. Fresh off the release of his debut mixtape at the time, 87 Dreams, the Philly native parlayed his newfound stardom to obtain guest appearances on remixes of tracks like “Up All Night” by Alex Clare and Florence + The Machine‘s “Dog Days Are Over.” In 2013, Forté is ready to launch his star to new heights with his most anticipated mixtape yet, PRAY.

Although the first single dropped late last year, Forté’s  been on a promotional tear lately, releasing singles left and right in preparation for his new project. With his third effort, the recent EPIC Records signee proves his sound has definitely matured over the last three years. Alongside producer RAAK, Forté is able to craft bass rattling bangers with crossover appeal that are both fresh and empowering. At only ten tracks, the mixtape may seem a bit short at first, but that really means that Gilbere decided to provide us with only the highest quality material to work with. Peep a few of our favorites from PRAY below, and make sure to download the entire tape from his official website.

[Hip Hop] Jez Dior – Hide

Jez Dior

Two things come with each Jez Dior release. The first is a post from a ninja that doesn’t listen to a ton of hip hop. Sure, I’ve had my moments of hip hop patronage in the past. I can recite every line of Wu Tang’s 36 Chambers (and did at Coachella). I dig the incredible story telling abilities of Slick Rick. I’ve pined over girls while listening to Atmosphere. However, if you’ve read this blog for long enough, you’d know that I don’t take on many hip hop projects. I tend to stick to EDM and indie rock, except when it comes to Jez. The first thing that draws me to his style is the smooth production from his team. Take “Hide” for example. The clean bluesy guitar riff repetitiously glides over a steady beat, soft vocal samples, and crackling distortion. It’s chill, calming and creates the perfect backdrop for Jez’s vocals.

The other thing that comes with each Jez Dior release is an impressive video. At the young age of 20, this rapper’s vision is far older than his age. His lyrics drip with emotional experiences of a person much older. His videos visually represent that as well. “Hide” shows Jez seemingly on the back of a car continually moving, and continually hiding. Call it a quarter life crisis…call it dealing with the day to day struggles of life. Whatever you take from this, know that he can make you feel his music, which is the mark of an incredible musician.

“Hide” is the third single off the new Jez Dior’s mixtape/album “Scarlett Sage”. It is a free download, which means you have absolutely no reason to pick this up.
