Future beats are cool ‘n all…but when the weekend hits, I wanna get my trap on.

There are more trap songs and artists nowadays than there are days in a year, and their similarities can be a bit dulling to the senses. So when I come across good trap music, it’s like finding the house that gives out the full-sized candy bars on Halloween…(best analogy I could think of).

Blake Skowron has been up to no good…(and I mean that in the best way) making dirty, dance-worthy beats and collaborating with some of the best producers in trap music and future bass today. Artists like: William Crooks, Creepa, graves, and KRANE. And if you pay attention to trap music at all, then you’ve probably already heard of Blake.

But enough talking about it his music, just press play and enjoy.
Happy Saturday ya’ll. Be safe out there, and thanks for reading. Much love.

As if I needed another reason to visit Australia… the big island definitely has an affinity for producing a shit load of good musicians.
Top artists like; Flume, WhatSoNot, Tame Impala, Alison Wonderland, & Hermitude (just to name a few) are all exports of The Great down unda’.

Hier (hi-er) is my new favourite import to my music library. When I get bored and go back to my archives for music I always enjoy, he is one of the first artists I go to. Light, airy, bouncy, full of break downs and bass, Hiers‘ music sounds like what I like to imagine living in a desert paradise might be like…

I like people who I can rely on…

There are those people in our lives who no matter what will always be there for you.
They know exactly what words you need to hear, when that hug is most crucial, or when to just leave you alone.
Take that and apply it to musicians, there are solid artists we love that when their name shows up next to a title you haven’t seen it paired with before, you just know that it’s going to be a goodie. That is how I feel about Bronze Whale.

Listen to their stunning remix of ‘Moondust‘ below:

They have original tracks amongst their incredible remixes, and just released a new jam that is already on heavy repeat with another ol’ reliable of mine, Popeska featuring vocals by Tom Aspaul:

Good music my makes life better, and I hope you enjoy Bronze Whale as much as I do!

Thanks for reading, much love.

 

 

ft. Moderat

Bonobo. Thom Yorke. RÜFÜS DU SOL.

I don’t prefer to make comparisons, especially in regards to music or art (because nobody should ever be put in a box). However, they work in order to organize things a bit.

Moderat;
Comprised of solo projects Modeselektor and Apparat, Berlin-based band Moderat have a discography that dates back to the early 2000s and they seem to be getting better and better only with time.

I made a huge mistake not seeing them at Lightning In A Bottle last year, and all I can say is, if I ever get the opportunity to right that wrong, I’d take it in a heartbeat.

If you listen to any one thing I try to shove down your earbuds this year, let it be this…

Probably one of the best bands you’ve never heard of. Their album ‘III‘ is flawless start to finish. Enjoy their art below!

There is a list I keep…
A list full of names of musicians who one day, I would like to do a write up/feature on.
“Timing is everything” as they say.
I don’t like to force something that isn’t really there, or worse; write when the words just won’t flow. I’m sure the same goes for any artists out there who are struggling to produce something of substance.

DROELOE doesn’t seem to be having any shortage of flow however…

The duo has been slowly churning out hits since I first heard them with up and coming trap star Holly on their addictive track ‘Allday’:

Every song they have put out since has been unique and fluid, and it doesn’t seem like they’re slowing down at all given they’ve released yet another amazing track with super producer San Holo just yesterday.

I must say, it is truly a pleasure to the ears to listen to the bitbird boys and I can’t wait to hear what they come up with next.
Enjoy the latest and greatest from them below, and if you dig it, it’s available for free thru TONEDEN here. Thanks for reading, bless.
