I just went on a downloading spree via this week’s “new” artist, AIRWAV.
“New” because he is not new to my SoundCloud feed, but recently stood out with his addictive EP, ‘VIVID‘ (that has since been on repeat, and when it stops I usually re-listen to ‘the void’ & ‘thinkin bout u’). Something about this 5-track EP just make me feel…good. Isn’t that why we listen to music in the first place?
The Daruma artist has quite the array of sounds to choose from, but they all stay true to the futuristic “genre” (I know, I suck) that we all know and love so much. From dirty down low bass with the likes of DIGITAL ETHOS (who may just need his own feature soon) or upbeat trap vibes with The South East Grind affiliate Enschway, he has something that is sure to delight everyone’s own personal airwaves.
Still waiting on a West Coast tour to experience this DJ Producer live, and I’m sure it won’t be long before I get the chance to headbob/bang to the lively sounds of the NY based AIRWAV. Until that day, I will enjoy his music stored in my iTunes library, downloaded completely for free via the man himself. Now how sweet is that?
Enjoy VIVID below, or click here to stream via Spotify. Thanks for reading, much love!
If music can’t save us what can?
Okay, maybe that is a little dramatic–but what can I say, I am a Nasty, nasty Woman.
You know what I think we all miss? #TRVP. That’s right. Good Old-Fashioned trap music.
If you don’t quite know what Trap is, it’s basically the electronic version of popular (or throwback) rap songs. Plus it’s so much fun to dance to.
Andrew Luce is probably one of the most underrated and upcoming musicians in Electronic right now. Decide for yourself:
That remix of Kid Cudi is available for free by clicking here.
I’d like to stop there but I won’t. If that tickled your fancy, this track is one of my current faves, ft. the unique sound of Ms. Chelsea Cutler.
Music is what keeps me going, without it I think we would all truly be lost.
Perhaps what we chose to hear is the actual reason we find ourselves without the happiness we seek…
Music is the drug.

Have a safe and happy weekend free from attachment and any aversions to your happiness. Much Love~
This week has been an introspective one to say the least…it is really incredible how everyday seems to be “the same” at times, but then you remember to look over your shoulder, and holy **** ToTo we’re not in Kansas anymore!
Music is the best at that, constantly changing and striving for the unthinkable.
Those are the artists I am currently focused on, because I don’t know if you were all aware, but the songs we are currently listening to are becoming the soundtracks of our lives…let’s make sure it’s a good playlist huh?
Have a safe & lovely weekend guys, enjoy some lighthearted, and heavy tunes this long weekend.
I’m pretty sure this image of Eazy-E wasn’t taken by smith. –listen below 🔥– however, his track is bass-heavy and also free to download via TONEDEN<3 right here, so we’re gonna honor this picture of one of the baddest motherfuckers to grace this beautiful planet earth. Peace~
Not just an artist, wavemob is a collection of sounds and art compiled by similar minds alike. Some notable artists on the label: CVRL, Kareful, Klimeks, NYQUILL, rare & many more all of which are featured in wavemobs’ second album release ‘wave 002‘.
If you’re into moody, mellow, dark & heavy beats, then every track here is the one for you:
This marks the Official 1st –of many more to come– #FutureFridaze.
(we have an overwhelming feeling that this may become everyone’s new favourite dotw..)
A slightly shorter playlist than last week (but we like that)
It is virtually impossible to really hear all the music that exists the way each song was intended to be heard.
A couple personal favs below are by artists: Notaker, 2047, sheltr, brothel., PACIFIXX, Gersh & Bear and ZEKE BEATS.
Carefully curated with you in mind, enjoy ❤
So, this post is basically for those of you–almost everyone–who haven’t gotten around to the ‘about‘ section or are just simply asking themselves, why?
Why “The New Taste”?
Why this music?
Why you? (you as in me, the curator of this site…just for clarification)
Something to know right away, WE DO NOT LIKE LONG POSTS. Who does, really?
THIS IS A MUSIC BASED WEBSITE. We <333333333333333 music.
That being said here are the as short as humanly possible answers to the aforementioned ?’s:
–Settling on a domain name is, tedious, to say the least. Also, see this post.
–Music is what brought all of us here and if you’re reading this, then you most likely “get it”… plus, it’s fun.
–Because I followed the music where it took me…where are you?
Honestly, if you’re even still reading this it’s a blessing to us both. I truly believe that.
We are always right where we are meant to be, and sometimes, the perfect song is playing in the background…
Welcome to The New Taste, we are so happy to have you ❤
Wormhole dudes man.
Show em some love every wednesday night (5$ with rsvp) at The New Parish in Oakland.
