I was talking to my coworkers about the music in my Late Night Jazz list. While it’s definitely not the music of the early turn of last century, it still gives me that feeling of jazz for the evening, unconventional as it may be. It’s all covered in electronic sounds and that’s where our opinions stray.
Same goes with our funk-infused playlist, The Funk Shall Be Within You. It may go off into electro at times, but the feeling of funk is strong throughout and I don’t think any word could describe it better, especially electronic. Other than nufunk or any other made up offshoot, but that’s a whole other debate.
I love high hats especially with something sexy wrapped around em. I first found this off beat, soulful shit in our vapor lists, but unlike that this is much more hip hop based and much sexier.
We get into some future glam towards the middle and end it a little lighter with my favorite hip hop out right now. So stick til the end.
First half is on the lighter side of deep house. Most the music deals in Love and the shit parts of it. Reminds me a lot of our Horizontal Disco playlist, but a little deeper with the house.
The other half is on a much heavier side of bass that’s a bit better for dancing. Late night raging that is. Both are good for dancing, depending on your mood.
Let me know how you’d order these differently if you had the chance.
Last year we had five playlists highlighting our favorite remixes called, Remixed Right, but we decided this year to split them into themes. First up comes our chill hip hop remixes.
This is purely mainstream hits remixed. 50/50 on good rap vs not so good, but the remixes do their job. Making shit sound good (to relax to).
Another style of house we made up. I freakin’ love lasers! I first remember it in ghetto funk, but it makes its appearance all over electro funk, house and everywhere electronic.
If it’s not clear off the bat what I mean by lazer, just think the synth sound and blow it out to extravagant proportions. Something like our glam fucks. Really pierces the ears.
It’s bold. It’s fresh. It’s the best music to dance to right now – it’s rooted in disco for god’s sake.
We stopped featuring & playlisting remixes for the most part, bigger plans in the works, and cover songs have been even more scarce. Over the last few years we’ve collected a few dozen and finally we get to share our favorites with you! (it’s been a long time coming)
There were quite a few acoustic covers initially, but we wittled ’em down. Like remixes and dubstep, the world of acoustic covers is super saturated and with that comes us & our super powers to filter the shit out of ’em.
The original theme was fuck music that sounded like Flume, specifically his bombastic use of synth. That glamorous sound.
Future is what it’s being referred as right now, but I don’t like that title much. Even though I’ve used it before, it’s gonna sound stupid once it’s no longer the hype in electronic.
So in tribute, I thought I’d make something fun out of it. The title that is, with some word play.
We first found the horizontal disco name on Zimmer’s Galapagos. And although we categorized Galapagos under the tropical house playlist, Zimmer’s sound definitely circles around the theme we’re going for here. Malinchak, however, is the exact sound we think of.
Horizontal disco is meant for late night discoing on the floor and is on the lighter side of deep house. I just like relaxing to it late night though.
Do not listen to this if it’s before 9pm! Sorry for shouting if it is. Or if you’re in a retrospective mood, that’s acceptable too.
The jazz here isn’t in its traditional sense. It’s inspired by hip hop, the kickdrum mostly, which is kinda funny because it’s really the other way around. It’s got a few other genres mixed in there too.
