Whatever you want to call it is fine with us. Whether it’s electro rock, indietronica or dance punk, Call me Señor is a god damn good time to listen to. These Parisian amis have a wildly infectious sound with their catchy guitar riffs and bigger than life, buzzing electro synths.
The title track for the EP, “Begging for Trouble” is a perfect example of how rock and electro can fuse together creating the perfect dance tune. No “four to the floor” beat needed here. This will get any ass moving. Take a listen. This track flirts with comparisons to Phoenix and Two Door Cinema Club with ease, providing head shaking rhythms, hand claps, and playful guitar riffs.
Once you’re able to stop listening to that track, move on to the rest. None of them will disappoint.
Begging For Trouble
We Get by
I love this gig. I really do. There’s a secret satisfaction in hearing something that you know will catch on way before the masses are aware of it, and x1988 is one of those albums that is bound to hit it big. With an interesting blend of down tempo beats, ambient sound, piano overlays and haunting melodies, Pakistani artist Talal Qureshi creates an album that is moody, atmospheric and sometimes dark, but not without enthusiasm and energy.
The first track “Leave My Hand” opens with broken down piano chords over a simple down tempo beat. When I first listened to this track I was in a desert during a monsoon. The track matched the scenery perfectly–dark desert skies,bleak landscape and torrential rain. “Juicy#2” follows in spirit, staying on the darker side of the spectrum with a simple beat, atmospherics, the signature piano riffs and a sitar sample, which I found fitting.
In contrast to the slower tracks “Blinds and Sheets,” and “Clubbing in Multan” provides the listner with more up tempo, driving electro songs. I’m not much of a dancer, but these songs had me bobbing along as I listened and never passed into the frenzied feel that accompanies some styles of electro.
The album is a good one for download, and with a 5 dollar suggested price tag, it’s definitely worth skipping that Starbucks run and downloading this album instead. The first two tracks are gratis and can be listened to here.
ps. We’ve also included a trapstep release from Quershi available on soundcloud for your consumption!

First up on this weeks Dojo is RL Grime with a couple of the tracks from his massive new High Beams EP on Fools Gold. RL Grime has consistently released some of the biggest tunes of the trap era thus far, and almost every track can hold its own to classics like “Mercy” and “Trap on Acid”. These were my favorites, but you can get the whole album from Fools Gold. Redman hops on this next track with Break Science while Diplo teams up with everybody for this track celebrating his one millionth twitter follower. The Socialytes mash-up a couple trap classics with the new Jay-Z and some old school Snoop Dogg gets a new school gansta-trill flip from Gooffee. The next bunch of songs are all foot working, ass shaking, fist pumping party starters that get seriously turnt up before it calms down again at the end with some incredibly laid back remixes of “Get Lucky”, Alicia Keys, and even “Summer Breeze” by Seals and Crofts. With the exception of the RL Grime tracks at the beginning, every song this week is free, so hit that “Buy” button, like the artists on facebook and get free music.

Just in case you were running short on laid-back summer jams, U.K. natives and ninja favorites, Swim Deep, have you covered. Their latest track, “Crush,” floats, as much of their music, in dreaminess with soothing vocals and makes the perfect anthem for summer love.
“Crush” will be a bonus track available exclusively on iTunes with their upcoming debut album, “Where in the Heaven Are We,” which is set to be released August 5th. Enjoy this relaxing track!
It’s always a tough pill to swallow when a group of young chaps come along and do something great. I have to admit that when I was 17, I was up to absolutely no good. These fellas from Reading, England have a well crafted sound and aren’t even old enough to buy a pack of smokes (in the US at least). None the less, they’ve already displayed an articulate maturity in their sound with well crafted lyrics, playful guitars, and a summer time progression that begs to have you sing along.
