More Moods – Nights On The Roof (Jazzvolution) and Love is Real

I’ve posted about Nick Moods from Rotterdam before, but he deserves more attention because his music is so incredibly good at what it’s trying to do, which is capture a mood and crystallize it in sound. The track above, Nights On The Roof, could be blasted from any rooftop during one of October’s icy, tumultuous nights, or maybe on a street corner in the rain, with a jazz band accompanying it. You could be listening to this track and missing home, or somebody that you love. I don’t really know how to describe it, which is pretty weak coming from someone who’s supposed to be blogging about music, but I’d like to call that ineffable quality a sign of real talent (I swear that’s a compliment, not a cop-out… really!).

Love is Real was the song that brought Moods to my attention. Doesn’t it kind of just make you feel like… love… is real? #dammit

Point Point – Morning BJ, Life In Grey, doubleOreo

Point Point is a crew of incredibly talented producers hailing from Paris, France. Through the use of heavily overlaid electronic sound, drum and cymbals, warped vocals and just frankly some kind of witchcraft they create beats to listen to VERY LOUDLY, ON REPEAT, AND FOR MANY MONTHS WITHOUT PAUSE. (In my case, anyway). And get this: they’re all free for download! Enjoy.

ODESZA – In Return

Just over a month ago Washington natives Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight – better known as the electronic duo ODESZA – released a full-length album after a year spent touring and gaining traction in the electronic music scene worldwide. Rising to prominence with such tracks as “iPlayYouListen” and “How Did I Get Here”, their first album “Summer’s Gone” captivated with dreamy sound waves, gripping drumbeats, striking vocals and emotionally-provocative instrumentals; an indisputable 2014 favorite.

Video: Billon – Special feat. Maxine Ashley

Mandatory post. Bum, nails did in bed and MC Hammer pants on a ski do in a pool, and much much more. Something special.

Misun – Superstitions

Very rarely do bands make it past email to post. A sign of the times really. And so often do I find myself speaking of exceptions but the fact is Kitsune has been putting electronic bands into my ear holes for years now. So let’s just all think twice about what we say when we speak of what we listen to.

Misun is out of Washington DC, out of it in good form to boot. They have a album lying in wait for 11/11/14 and this is the title track of the soon to be first full length album of theirs. Check them out and peep game a band for a change.

Wiley – Flying (Ink Midget Bootleg)

Break anything mundane your experiencing in life by layer caking it with a Slovakian remix. Kind Deluxe Records just shared signee Ink Midjets new freeizm on their facebook, and, hot damn. One of Wiley’s best after a full on future trill sex change.

Winning is a state of mind.

Flow Castle – Don’t Stop Love

Usually there is no need to venture near high HIGH pitched vocals, like those hamster songs or whatever they are. It’s like that expression, “I wouldn’t f*ck her with your dick and him pushing.” But when you factor in beloved pop culture, a dreamy intro and a Future Bass hash tag, doors will ajar. Hence the new single from LA based Flow Castle, an artist with a real chill take on What So Not’s ‘Tell Me’ , which you should hear after, then the rest of the catalog. #PeepGameFlowCastle

Drake – How About Now (WYLN Edit)

Drake has been sparse in the news feed as of late, for months now it seems. But people don’t forget, the East Coast probably could’t forget about Drake if they tried. To keep his legacy living and lul from any kind of bottom is Montreal’s WYLN. A very chillen’ bopper like much of what’s been coming from that end of CA. Chill, Jazz, shade’s and all over cool.

Jayd Ink – You Playin’ (Kid Vibe’s Take)

Prolonged stretches of time without Kid Vibe flips, takes or remixes will eventually get you thinking about the time passed without. The gaps themselves are a reminder of the ear ball pleasure(s) his brand of R&B have given you. This new “Deep R&B” is free for download if you express yourself in the comments or via personal message.

Herobust – Party McFly

Even when venturing into the booty clap music of the nation HeRobust does not hesitate to incorporate his musical robotics. The term “robots fucking” may have just earned a real place to call home in the Atlanta producers venture into Twerk.
