Sunday Night Soul

Well, the NFL  Conference Championship games are over, and the Super Bowl teams have been decided (congratulations to Denver and Seattle). Win or lose, we’ve got the perfect dose of soul here to help keep the celebrations going, or lift your spirits and heal your wounds (sorry New England and San Francisco). If you scroll down, you’ll see that we have a packed house once again, and the output doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. Tonight’s entertainment includes such esteemed names as Raleigh Ritchie, Stwo, Tinashe, Willow SmithBlackbear and Freeze-Tag. We also have a few newer acts throwing their hats into the ring, including Rubee RaynePrelow, Jon E.K., Jeftuz, abstract youth and Kayla Steen. That’s just a fraction of what you can expect from this week’s Sunday Night Soul, which might actually last you the full week. Enjoy!

[Resident Artist of the Month] Martin Garrix
Crackin' (Martin Garrix Edit)

With a new start to the year, we’re kicking off our 2014 Residency program with a bang, welcoming in one of the hottest names in music right now. For the past year, no matter what club, festival, podcast or mix you’d come across, you’re almost certain to hear one song in particular. You know which one we’re talking about. “Animals,” exploded onto the scene, dropping by way of Spinnin’ Records.

Shrouded in mystery, the teaser that was released had no name associated with it. People curiously wrote up blog posts with incorrect artists being credited, chomping at the bit to finally find out who was behind that behemoth of a track. When the artist was finally announced, belonging to 17 year old Martin Garrix, people were instant ennamoured with this Netherlands born youngster.

Garrix has since released numerous chart-topping tracks, all of which have maintained his polished style that so many have come to know and love. Now that everyone is a little more familiar with this rising star, we’re offering up the opportunity to get to know him even better.

All this month we’ll be featuring content on Martin Garrix, offering up a deeper look at the man behind the animal mask. Make sure to check back in on the regular to see what we have in store.

[Sexy] Wet – No Lie (Noah Breakfast Remix) (Feat. Spank Rock)

Wet EP
No Lie (Noah Breakfast Remix Ft. Spank Rock)

Xaphoon Jones is no more, and Noah Breakfast finally emerges to take his place. It’s kind of like when Robin split from Batman, and embraced the identity of Nightwing to ironically spread his wings and vanquish evil on his own, except in this case our hero stays steady slaying remixes. Comic book comparisons aside, we’re glad to welcome Noah in with open arms as he serves up this sultry remake of Wet‘s “No Lie.” In contrast to the ruminating, restrained nature of the original, this spunky revamp is a blipped out, glitchy affair with a sticky bass that’ll force you to want to loop endlessly “on and on and on and on…” Also featuring a worthy verse from Philly’s Spank Rock, this tune makes for a perfect listen at the beginning or end of your night. Peep the single above, and treat yourself to a free download as well.

[Lovetrap] The Chain Gang of 1974 – Sleepwalking (Just A Gent Remix)

The Chain Gang Of 1974
Sleepwalking (Just A Gent Remix)

Many of you out there probably recognize The Chain Gang of 1974‘s “Sleepwalking” as that song from the GTA V trailer last summer. From henceforth, this remix by Just A Gent shall be known as that song that knocked you out of your seats the instant you pressed play. Originally conceived as an uplifting synth/electro pop record in the same vein as M83, Just A Gent really wakes the song up, invigorating it through sped up vocals, an unrelenting bassline, melodic piano keys, and an unbelievable refrain that sounds like it was ripped straight out of a video game of its own. We know we probably say this quite a bit, but this one is definitely a MUST LISTEN. Stream the awesome track above, and grab a free download in exchange for liking Just A Gent on Facebook (it’s totally worth it).

[Indie Pop] Tennis – 100 Lovers

100 Lovers

“100 Lovers.” Upon first glance that might sound like a daunting task to some, but this single from Denver indie pop darlings Tennis is less about a Wilt Chamberlain inspired conquest, and more about reflecting on a heartbreak from the distant past. Singing in an oddly cheery, yet almost sardonic tone, Alaina Moore provides us with a dreamy landscape on this reflective tune plucked straight from the duo’s Small Sound EP. Despite the project being out for a few months already, it seemed to have got lost in the shuffle, prompting the group to upload this latest ditty to their SoundCloud page. Despite its subject matter, “100 Lovers” is one of those songs that instantly warms your soul, and has us begging for the weather to follow suit. Check out the single above, and grab yourself a copy of the 5-track Small Sound EP, available on iTunes now.

[Synth-Pop] Salt Ashes – Somebody

Salt Ashes

 Salt Ashes may be a name slightly foreign to our savvy readers, but rest assured it should not remain so for much longer. Much to our delight, rising 22 year old synth-pop starlet Veiga Sanchez just released her debut single “Somebody” under the Salt Ashes handle on Radikal Records, which is a brooding but ultimately uplifting allotment of pop instrumentation. “Somebody” immediately touched on this writer’s inner fanboy with a distinctly Giorgio Moroder roused MOOG synthesizer line, but not before Sanchez’ recurrent vocal hook teases its way into the fold to fully open the door on her powerful intonations. By the time the vocal track is completely unveiled, it incites celestial visions of “Wuthering Heights” era Kate Bush, but still pulses the right amount of sweaty dance floor images and excess as if you were seeing her perform at a super-club like Berlin’s temple, Berghain. Salt Ashes’ blend of dark Italo-Disco production and four to the floor rhythms pushes the singer’s soaring voice directly to the forefront of her music, and “Somebody” more than wrapped itself into our in-office playlist for an indeterminate amount of time. Stream “Somebody” above, and if it’s tickling your fancy like ours, purchase the mini EP here.
