Lovelife · The Key

Sexy-pop fantastic

I don’t know if I’m really feeling the literal lyrics on Lovelife’s ‘The Key,’ but I’ve never been one to look into lyrics too much. I do, however, love looking into sound and the build up to the chorus in this is pretty damn pop fantastic. Once that chorus hits, you know Lovelife is in it for big things and you know those heartthrobbed teens are gonna eat ‘em up once they get the chance (I’m right there with ‘em).

Moullinex · Take My Pain Away (Gigamesh Remix)

Won't take your pain away for a day, but four minutes is plenty enough.

Does this not sound like an intro to some 70’s, 80’s or 90’s flick Maybe like a teen movie or a Miami Vice type show. Or maybe something out of Grand Theft Auto or Scarface… Whatever it is, Gigamesh always brings nu-disco interests and always backed up with some fine ass vocals. God, if this doesn’t get your heart pumpin plenty… you shouldn’t be listening to us.

Music Inspired by the Love for Cali

Over twenty tracks for the pride of the best in the West

I originally wanted to make a mix of music inspired by California about six months back when I moved to The Bay Area from Minnesota, but shit got hectic & I got lazy. I moved out to Cali because I wanted to get into the music/tech scene and Minnesota just wasn’t cutting it. Well, I’ve been in & out of some pretty cool companies since, but still haven’t landed a permanent job. Especially at the one company that actually drove me out here (quite literally), SoundCloud.

My attempts to get SoundCloud’s attention have been pretty much failures, most notably my SoundKlout project, but in the least it’s given you all a lot of good content on here. However, I still haven’t given up hope! (and never will) So for their recently posted “Communications internship,” I decided to do a few special projects to hopefully get their attention once and for all. Here I present Part I in hopes to tell a little about my story and get you all sympathizing for me so you actually help me out! Plus, we get to throw some quality Cali music at ya.

The Other Tribe · Skirts (Eat More Cake Remix)

Sometimes the remix does it better with the vocals

Life’s a bitch, but thank god we’ve got music like this. Eat More Cake’s remix of ‘Skirts’ takes these tease-filled vocals and accompanies them with a far more calming state of Electronica than its original. Which fits the vocals much better.

Mansions on the Moon · Radio

Moon Music the next big thing? Yes, because of the cool themed parties.

I sure love these Moon goers. From Moon Boots to Mansions on the Moon, Moon music is some stellar shit. Radio’s message & sound are hopeful, but the chorus seems a bit cheesy at times (“ya ya ya”).

P.O.S · Fuck Your Stuff

These MN hooligans are still up to Nogood

Cannot believe how outta hip-hop I’ve been for the last year. This blog all started out exclusively with hip-hop and look at us now (for better or worse). But of course I couldn’t deny my Minnesota brethren, at least when I enjoy their “stuff.”

P.O.S & Lazerbeak of Doomtree pair it up with ‘Fuck Your Stuff’ for P.O.S’ new album, We Don’t Even Live Here. The track is of similar vein to their usual MN hooliganary. And as much as I may not appreciate the lyricism compared to many others, P.O.S’ style & finesse over Lazerbeak’s better than ever beat is something we can all appreciate.

Make sure to check out DOOMTREE if you’re into this style of hip-hop and hit up We Don’t Even Live Here on October 22.

Hobotech · The FFV

A strange one, but I love strange ones!

Ok, this is a strange one, but you know I love the strange ones!! Jon Hobotech Margulies, or Hobotech for short, busts a whomping, whirling folkstep at us and I’ve rarely seen it done before (or ever). This glitch-folk-step breed of electro may just be one of thousands of other styles emerging, but it sounds progressively appealing for now. Let’s just hope no one steps on this as much as they all did dubstep. Poor, poor dubstep.

DJ EQ · Time (Original Mix)

The full disco package with funky beats & vocal treats

DJ EQ is new to my ears but brings the full disco package with ‘Time': funky beats & vocal treats. This may just be a preview of his nu disco charm, but it’s damn addicting & I couldn’t sit on it. But like too many other nu disco tracks, this keeps me wondering what vocals EQ used – credit your peoples, people. [Note: WAIT for the vocals to KICK in]

Killtronik · Paris La Nuit (Meridian Remix)

Finally goin international with our vocal selections -- no, not rap.

I’m finally getting out of my anglocentric ways and gettin into some good ol’ international voices. First with Hindi music via Ghetto Funk and now some French via Meridian’s ‘Paris La Nuit’ remix.

Killtronik’s gets an electro pop makeover from Meridian and it sure rides well with those French female vocals. The one irritating thing, which my roommate pointed out is the male backup vocals – they sound so euro-sleazy. Do love those lady vocals though (just to let you know, again).

Chris Brown · Yo (Excuse Me Miss) (Cleindl Remix)

Going to depths Brown's pop persona could never reach alone

No one loves Chris Brown or when vocals are sped up to Chipmunk status, but they’re on this today and don’t you goddamn complain about it. Whether or not he’s been one of the biggest fuck ups in celebritism, Chris Brown’s voice sounds soulful even when sped up to near Chipmunk levels. Cleindl takes Brown’s vocals from ‘Yo’ & transforms them with hypnotic soul into depths Brown’s pop persona could never reach.
