Little Daylight – Overdose (Twice As Nice Remix)

Indie pop trio Little Daylight — formerly known for their outstanding remixes of Passion Pit, Temper Trap and Freelances Whales — recently unleashed their now-successful original single “Overdose”. But just as the three-piece paid homage to the aforementioned bands with their reworks, Australian-born duo Twice As Nice are here to do the same. The bright, rushing synths and completely contagious energy make this remix a real pleaser, night or day. Tune in below.

[MP3 Playlist] The Trap Dojo #27

This weeks Trap Dojo is divided into four sections. The first track, from thefaded. kicks off with a massive build up that will have you saying “Wait For It” to drop that almost never seems to come. The mood and pace continues to build over the next few tracks, including the UZ remix of “Cowboy” by Zeds Dead, a remix of Baauer’s “DumDum” and climaxing with Alex Young‘s insane remix of Ah Yeah”. The next four songs are all spaced out trap bangers. Starting it off with the deep and jazzy “Ride Up”, heRobust infuses some electro beats, and the other two tracks lay down a big room sound thats still thuggin enough to hear coming out of the trunk of a Cutlass. I should warn you that the next section is going to be an all out assault on your senses. Starting with some dark drumwork in the intro, “Brain Splat” drops a bassline that will leave your head splattered over your backseat like Marvin from “Pulp Fiction”DJ Snake throws some dark trap with a hardstyle twist over French MC, Stromae’s aggressive bars, then Team Bayside High does something crazy and makes the heaviest track we’ve heard to date. Remixing none other than Pantera, they are able to chop the heavy riffs into filthy trap beats, and June gives us some spooky bass to finish. Our final section includes a remix of the “Django Unchained Theme” by Kissy Sell Out,  some Cyber-Footwork from the LOLGurlz and three progressively more emotionally evocative Love trap songs for a beautiful send off.

I hope you enjoyed this trip through the extremes of trap. Download all the free tracks right here

[Alternative/Hip-Hop] Theophilus London -Snow Angel ft Trouble Andrew

It woud be an understatement to say that Theophilus London is one of the more experimental and eclectic up and coming artists. With a unique flow, he seems to have the distinct ability to flow well over a wide range of beats. From trap to hip-hop to alternative rock, he is not afraid to reach outside the proverbial box of his “genre” and deliver some dope new music. On the 3rd week of dropping new material, the Brooklyn native teams up with pro-snowboarder Trouble Andrew on the track “Snow Angel”. This trippy and laid-back tune comes courtesy of trap producer Uzi and some Radiohead samples. Not sure if this track is an endorsement/praising of the snowboarder but it is still pretty interesting. Be sure to check out the free single below.

[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo (February 2013 Round #3)

Sure, the best things in life are often free but sometimes we have to pay a little something, something in order to make things a little better. We try to give you an abundance of free music here on the indie dojo playlists, but sometimes we have to contribute back to the indies by posting a non-downloadable Soundcloud link. So if you like it, go ahead and buy it. Same goes for the artists that are kind enough to share a free download or 2. Visit their facebook page, follow them on twitter, do whatever the social media revolution calls for. Ninjas helping ninjas. It sure is a beautiful thing.

[Electronica/R&B] Shlohmo – Don’t Say No ft. How To Dress Well

Tom Krell, aka How To Dress Well, makes bleeding, yearning heartache sound so damn absolutely sexy. Listening to his voice, whether it’s on this amazing Shlohmo track (seriously, congrats on this collaboration, it is a spot-on perfect pairing) or on his own sophomore album Total Loss, both turns me on AND makes me want to cry. I don’t know if that’s weird or genius, it doesn’t matter either way: I’ll still keep his stuff on repeat. “Don’t Say No” is a sad, charged storm of sorts that wreaks havoc on everything in its theoretical path — the LA producer’s electronic work demolishes with its sometimes haunting/sometimes dramatic ambiance and Krell’s vocals fill your heart only to break it apart a few verses later. So, look out and enjoy.

Dont Say No ft. How To Dress Well

“Don’t Say No” is off Shlohmo’s new Laid Out EP, out March 5 via Friends of Friends/Wedidit.

[LP Review] The Joy Formidable—Wolf’s Law

The Joy Formidable’s second studio album, Wolf’s Law, demands a careful ear. Although the album is approachable in a pop rock sense, it has none of the trappings of pop music: The album is creative, versatile and gives winks and nods to genres of music that grouchy music nerds like yours truly can appreciate! The listener will have a pleasant pop experience but will also enjoy some shoegaze, punk and yes, even some metal moments in this album.

The album opens with “This Ladder is Ours”, which begins some gentle strings before launching into a poppy celebration of a song that could easily be an anthem for the kiddos out there. “Bats”, on the other hand, opens a little darker : A crunchy, distorted guitar riff accents some vocals that aren’t afraid to drip a little venom in the ear. Also check out the heavy metal nod at 2:19 in this song. Is that double bass drums? Yeah. I think it is. And it’s gorgeous. More of this PLEASE indie-pop artists! “The Leopard and the Lung,” opens with some clever piano trills that give way to a triumphant, shoegaze style wall of sound guitar work that made this Mogwai fan smile. The piano hangs on in the song, cutting nicely through the distortion to give the tune balance.

The Joy Formidable is a band with a bright future. Their ability to produce accessible music will give them mainstream access (supporting Muse on their tours won’t hurt either), and their ability to hold on to their alt-rock roots will give them street cred with the indie crowd.

Good stuff here. Have a listen.
