[Indie] Coasts – Oceans


As the weekend winds down, we like to spend countless hours going through emails, and we usually come across at least one track that we looked over. This week that track is the debut single from Bristol based indie outfit, Coasts. This bright and dancy indie rock tune is heartwarming, energetic, and fun to listen to. “Oceans” is their debut single, and will be available for purchase February 25th. Make sure to pay attention to these guys, because they’re sure to make a splash (pun intended) in 2013.

[Electro Pop] MAUSI – Move

“Move” is the brand new single from the UK’s MAUSI. Slick, synthy, and colorful, it’s the perfect smooth party jam, full of disco & funky bits and straight up, Grade-A electro pop flavor. Not only does the music get you going, but the lyrics themselves are pretty damn good motivators:

“You’ve got to dance like you want to dance, you’ve got to feel like it like nobody sees. You’ve got to move like you want to move, you’ve got to sing like you want…”
These guys sure know how to sell the dance floor. Check it out below. “Move” will be available via Loose Lips this March. Stay tuned — MAUSI are definitely ones to watch this year.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #20

The Chill Dojo has hit another milestone with edition number 20! So we’re celebrating, or rather vegging out with an equal number of stellar tracks to wind down your weekend and keep things as easy as can be.

Bit Funk kicks off our proceedings with the standout for this playlist in ‘The Long Road Ahead’. With the year just beginning, 2013 certainly does have a long way to go, but if mellow masterpieces like this are the soundtrack to our days then it will certainly be one to look forward to. The vibes keep flowing with our next mix courtesy of Melbourne duo QvsQ, who take the haunting yet chilled original from London Grammar and add a touch of progressive magic to perfectly complement those enchanting vocals. We continue on to some new stuff from familiar names in Sizzlebird and Cross Them Out, who continue to do what they do best in providing absolutely gorgeous sounds. We then revisit an earlier post from the week covering another dojo favourite in Follow Me, with another smooth rework of a classic R&B jam that will quickly have you under its spell. Our playlist concludes with a special treat of 5 of the best laid-back beats from UK producer Vanilla’s latest album of instrumentals, For What It’s Worth. The jazzy touch make these a pure easy-listening delight.

There is definitely plenty to enjoy in this jam-packed milestone installment, so vibe along in whatever way you love most. Peace out!

It doesn’t matter what name is put to it, because at the end of the day it is good music through and through that will have you moving whether you like it or not. For anyone complaining that electronic music is sounding all the same or getting stale, take a listen to this clear message from Skullee to go and get funked!

[Indie] Bumblebeez ft. Maria – Next To You

This bass driven and translucent indie pop track, “Next to You,” from the Australian duo Bumblebeez switches from simple to complex and back again. Definitely enjoy it on some speakers with friends/dance partners because good feelings come attached to the sound waves. This is just a recently released single and nothing is hard-set in the future for Bumblebeez…yet. I’m sure there is more to come. Until then, remember to play this one loud.

[NEW] Frank Ocean – Pink Matter (Remix) Ft. Andre 3000 & Big Boi

While it remains unclear when we will get some new original music from Outkast, today marks the first track featuring both MCs in about five years as Big Boi hops on the remix of Frank Ocean‘s Andre 3000 collaboration, “Pink Matter.” As expected, the result is pretty awesome and is a must listen for any music fan. Hopefully we see a project from the legends in 2013, but for now enjoy this slice of dopeness below. Happy Friday night ninjas!

[SPECIAL EDITION] Clayton’s Friday Party Playlist #35

Today we’re bringing you a special edition of Clayton’s Friday Party Playlist. It has recently come to my attention that there is a group of our boys in Afghanistan that look forward to CFPP, each and every week. This was an incredibly humbling tidbit of news, as I appreciate what those guys go through every day to make sure that I can do what I do. It’s funny to think that this little playlist I put together brings a little taste of home to some of our troops in the Middle East.

So, today’s playlist is dedicated to them. I’ve beefed it up to more than double the original size as my salute to the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and most importantly, Major James Egan and the rest of the Jesters. Thank you for serving our country.

As a sign of respect, I’d like to ask everyone to raise a glass and toast what those brave men and women do for us. And when you’re done with that, #danceirresponsibly.
