Episode #98: Cosmic Amanda & DJ Chad on the Spaceship

Soundcloud || Spotify Playlist  || BFF.fm Archive & Tracklist

On the eve of our Space Disco / BFF.fm Benefit, we were joined by BFF.fm’s founder Cosmic Amanda and the legendary DJ Chad. But before we got into the disco sesh, I kicked off the show with some hazy, spacey cuts from MGMT, Vivian Fantasy, Nabihah Iqbal and Akasha System. Vindata‘s new mixtape was so good that I had to squeeze in a lil sampler (4 songs!) of its soultronic magic. Before sharing some phenomenal disco cuts, Amanda and I chopped it up about BFF history, Victorian submarines and our mutual love of disco. DJ Chad closed the show out with some wiggly space bumps. – Ash

40 Songs to Prepare for Sasquatch! 2016 [Festival Preview + Playlist]

Over the last few years, Memorial Day Weekend for us has become synonymous with Washington’s Sasquatch! Music Festival–you can take a look back at our review from last year to get a sense of just how much we love it. The 4-day event separates itself from other major festivals by offering a one-of-a-kind backdrop overlooking the Columbia River Gorge and being just far enough in the boonies that all attendees camp together. That combination makes for a more communal experience while offering some relief from common festival-goer complaints.

In its second year back to a 4-day bill, Sasquatch! presents one of its most unique lineups to date shedding light on local Seattle musicians early in the day while bringing the headliners everyone has come to expect (aside from The Cure!) to take on the evening performances. While late sets from the likes of Jamie xx, Disclosure and Major Lazer jump out as major electronic acts, the daytime seems more focused on indie rock / pop and hip-hop, which should fit a sunny day in the Gorge perfectly.

To help all our Sasquatch Ninjas prepare, we’ve put together a 40-song playlist highlighting 10 acts for each day of the festival. Whether or not you’ll be at the Gorge this year, we hope you discover some new artists in here–we certainly did in putting it together. If you do make it out, look for the dude with the most colorful shorts and come say what’s up!

Hot Chip – How Do You Do (Todd Terje Remix)

Scandanavian born DJ Todd Terje remixes and takes the Hot Chip single “How Do You Do” into a disco-themed, futuristic odyssey. Mixing synths and some heavy electronic rhythms, Terje brings this track into a 9-minute dance anthem, and making it is as addictive as it is pleasurable to the ears. You can hear Hot Chip’s original on their latest album In Our Heads, available now on Domino Records.
