Calvin Harris – Outside (Oliver Heldens Remix)

Next weekend’s adventures take me to Wet Republic at the MGM Grand in Vegas. Calvin Harris will be playing. Here’s a nice little remix of one of his old classics. I hope Ellie Goulding shows up in my cabana.

Quick note: The Heldeep house page on SoundCloud has some pretty nice jams. Check that out.

Tobu/Mako

 

So I got into soccer recently. Fell pretty hard for her. My great white buffalo. Thank you for all of your well wishes, we’re very happy together.

That’ll lead nicely into the reason I was watching Liverpool highlights…this highlight to be precise:

 

The soundtrack to that not-so-subtly splendid soccer show was equally sublime. So I set to surrendering my short-lived siesta session in search of the subjects who spawned these sweet serenades:

 

Tobu – They’re from Latvia

Mako – They’re not from Latvia

And here’s their set from Coachella last year. That’s culturally relevant now, right? Is that happening?

This guy describes his music as Sunset House – and I’d have to agree (though I have no real idea what it means). Also, he should stick to original tracks like “Raindrops” below; his remixes seem a little forced.

Maroon-5-Animals-Gryffin-Remix

Just from browsing through this kid’s Soundcloud, I could see him grow up before my eyes; he started to figure out his sound about a year ago and has recently been able to apply it to more complementary songs. Look out for this kid at bigger festivals once he starts producing originals.

Listening to this first song felt like the first time I had Reese’s Puffs – fuck, this shit’s good! These are the kind of toons humans were created to listen to. I dare you to try to sit still.

Mausi – “Sol.” & Other Songs

If you haven’t done SantaCon, you need to. I’m rather late wit that one, but again, its been a while. Were backtracking here.

As we move along in this world where the site actually contains new and relevant posts, here’s the second song/artist after coming back from my obligatory job-induced hiatus.

Kinda reminds me of summer. Or at least a BBQ that I was at once upon a time. Some of it seems kinda girly too. I don’t know, ball’s in your court. Enjoy.

Then I found another good song of theirs:

This is also a chill little biscuit that I was quite amused by after letting it play for a while:

ASTR – Operate

ASTR - Operate

And…………………………………

We’re back.

So auditing is fun, and “keeps your mind attentive” for prolonged periods of the day. And the weekends. And in your dreams.

But now, oh now, there is nothing but freedom in front of me. Or, as the rest of the world calls it, a normal 40 hour work week.

On the positive side, all that time in front of a computer gives you a good chance to listen to some tunes, put together some playlists, and get a good sense of what I’m going to post up here on this wonderful site. So without further ado:

We’ll start things off slow here with a song I recently came across called “Operate” by ASTR. Thing I like about this duo is that the live, work, and of course play in New York. They have an affinity for the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. They dabble in disco tracks, movie soundtracks, and of course disco synths. And this guy/girl mash-up duo met at a yoga class (and can only assume they’re intimately involved). It’s spring, and love is in the air.

Ok…just found this out. With this new format of posting, you can press play on your cell phone (I’m doing it on Android) and go looking through other stuff while its playing. God bless SoundCloud, and God bless America. And yes, Spotify does the same thing, I get it.

As a #tbt post, I’m going to remind you of how sweet these guys were/are. Late 90s alt rock at its best.

And they’ve actually come out with some good new stuff in the past couple years…

Only one of these guys was able to make it to Tomorrowworld, but he killed it nonetheless. They were at the small ‘Kitsune Water Stage’ in the middle of the woods, and the intimate setting added a very chill dimension to their class music. Not many remixes from them, mostly originals, which means they’re very much the creative type. One of my favorites from that weekend.

I’ve been saving this guy for a while because I like to keep the good stuff to myself – but after some convincing from Jeff and T and seeing this guy absolutely destroy it at Tomorrowworld, I couldn’t keep him under wraps any longer. Feels like I’m unleashing the Kraken…

There are plenttyyy more songs that I could post here, but you’ll just have to go find them yourself – I’ve been following this guy since he started, and I haven’t been disappointed by anything that he’s made so far. Can’t really direct you to a single page that has all of his music, but his facebook page is as close as it gets. Good hunting, my friends.
