Saturday Selection Vol. 9

Saturday Selection

This weeks has been something else, and I’m still catching up after being at Governors Ball this weekend. We’re primed and ready for another slick collection of new tunes, from Louis Futon to the first cut off of midnight’s new EP, so go ahead and jump right into it. Enjoy!

O R I O N – Gold Dust ft. Cammie Robinson

This song is from a little while ago, but it was new to us and instantly caught our ears. O R I O N put together a beautiful brain-melter with “Gold Dust”, and the sparse, but angelic vocals of Cammie Robinson are the icing on the cake. The innate feeling of escapism creeps out throughout the tune, and you’ll want to go explore the world as it plays. Enjoy this one on a bright and day. You’ll feel absolutely wonderful.

SWIMS – Bedrooms

SWIMS is an exciting new duo that combines the best of trap, R&B, and electronic music into a breezy and ethereal creation. Optimized for complete relaxation, “Bedrooms” stands as a strong debut for these two. It’s a serenade with all the right trappings. It hits all the right spots. Soak this one in with a special someone tonight.

midnight – Native America (feat. The Internet)

The combination of midnight and The Internet is impossible to be apathetic about. Touching on the marred past of the United States, these talented people describe the constant push for the best life available in a seductive fashion that gives the message a new appearance. We’ve been hooked on midnight ever since his XXI Labors EP, and seeing him work with The Internet to deliver such a powerful message only solidifies our admiration of his work. Find some time to really sit and reflect on these lyrics.

Goldlink – Unique (Louis Futon Remix)

This one is simply fun. That’s no surprise, coming from Louis Futon. He decided to return to his earlier remix roots by flipping this Goldlink and Anderson Paak original into absolutely irresistible scorcher of a dance tune. We’re not even sure what the best part of it is, but there is one thing we know for sure. It’s ALL great. Kick off the shift into warm weather with this one.

The Geek x Vrv – Coming Up’ Feat Kellylee Evans & Atom

So much soul. The Geek x Vrv never fails to bring out the best funk, hip-hop, and soul crossovers with their material, and “Coming Up” is a vibrant new addition to their stellar sound. Featuring a fourth of C2C and the striking singing of Kellylee Evans, this song triumphs on its 90s rap atmosphere and style that’s revamped and repurposed into a more modern sound. You can’t NOT bob your head. We’re making sure to keep the double negative there just so you know we MEAN it. Throw this tune on when you just want to groove.

[Album Stream] Yeah Boy – Can’t Get Enough EP

We’ve been awfully proud witnessing one of our ‘Artists to Watch in 2014’, Johnny Castro and his Yeah Boy project, begin receiving the critical acclaim and fan related credit that we’ve known to be his since interviewing and premiering his “Can’t Get Enough” single back in late 2013. Now, on the heels of some very credible and groovy remixes, Yeah Boy has officially released its first EP, Can’t Get Enough. Behind the aforementioned electronically textured debut single to which the EP was named for, Yeah Boy has also included two brand new original tunes, “Tell Me” and “Take It All” which held just as high a place in our hearts and ears as “Can’t Get Enough”.

Rounding out the extended play are three remixes of “Can’t Get Enough”. The incredible Marlon Hoffstadt, who stormed every underground dance club around the globe last year with his highly infectious collaboration with Dansson, “Shake That”, joins forces with HRSSN to paint a thick bassline and a bit of funk fueled house rhythm onto the malleable track while a synthy disco edit from Chicago’s Sam Padrul and a slightly more bass leaning revision from The Geek x VRV round out the entire release with a little dancey lacquering. There’s a little something here for our electronic listeners from just about every sub-genre, so¬†take a little spin, start your week with some intoxicating electronicism¬† and rinse the entire half-hour extended play below.
