PREMIERE: Tupper Ware Remix Party – The Hit (Whaleskin Remix)

It brings me great joy to be able to bring to you today a first glimpse at a remix crafted by one of my favourite east coast cosmic funk-o-nauts Whaleskin aka Willow Bell. The retrograde remix is of Toronto’s (via Halifax) Tupper Ware Remix Party – a very interesting group, to say the least.

If you’re a fan of funky disco, there is no doubt in my mind that this tune will resonate with you. Hardware synth fanatics rejoice – Willows ability to combine the uniquely genre-bending nature of TWRP’s metal/funk vibes with a head bobbing retro/electro/house scene is very impressive.

Check out the new tune, and enjoy the free download via Soundcloud embed:

Premiere: Ethan Breakaway – Tonight Is the Night (Alex Light Remix)

Today presented itself as a clean, fresh, mild day. The visuals of nature are cooling hand in hand alongside London vocalist Ethan Breakaway’s ‘Tonight Is the Night’ . The title track off his debut EP, which you can listen to HERE has received a beauty Future spin from fellow Londoner, Alex Light. Synth-scapes plasterered, intertwined and layered provide so much depth into the remix. Layers enough to lose one’s self in thought and further match the new days beginning beat for beat with sound. Be sure to follow both of these artists as their notoriety has already begun.

Video Premiere: Animal Feelings feat. Charlie Heart

If recent Netflix documentary additions have turned you full dietary activist you should refrain from watching. Where I was turned momentary activist others very easily could have been pushed all the way. Them documentarians know whats up. And as I type the two for one Big Mac coupon is staring me straight in the eyes. It’s like each burger is an eye ball and we are dead lock for “no blink eat me” competish. So you’re warned. Cause there is so much meat smearing in the three minute self titled track featuring the vocal works of Charlie Heart. And again as I type the thought of McDicks delivers in Manhatten cross my mind. Animal Feelings himself is from Brooklyn but maybe some over the phone persuasion could venture a delivery to his borough… (As you can see, my thinking is very non linear when even the suggestion of food is in the room.) House, soft pink frame, slow motion, and real funky synth work make these animal feelings muuuuch easier to digest than say, Cowspiracy. Enjoy the video and get to know Brooklyn’s Animal Feelings via the links below.

Premiere: Bear Mountain – Hopeful (Moon Bounce Remix)

Vancouver band Bear Mountain are on a mission to find the medium between technology and the natural world. It can be heard in their music from original to remix and DJ set in-between. It’s this mission which is successful in making the band stand out, at least in this two thumb haver’s mind. ‘Hopeful’ itself was made with the future in mind. And during times like these motivation points here and there are what is needed to keep ourselves from burying our heads in the sand. Especially on the subject of technology versus nature. This is where Philly based Moon Bounce comes in.  Locking ‘Hopeful’ firmly into technology, groovily I might add, with a lush blend of Tropical/New Disco and plenty of Future. Listen to the original below to compare and expand ;)

“We made it thinking about the future, and being hopeful for what’s to come despite the past.” – Bear Mountain

Philly has been translating Grime into North American listening for years now. Better know as Street Bass there should be no quarrel in the city’s occupying Bass Muisc’s forefront as we know it to this day. Bass Music alongside pure underground of the coast and continent is affirmed more now by online copywrite laws being enforced to the degree in which it is today. Labels like these and their counterparts who’ve survived to this day, bringing original production and true genre creation are once again to be the curators of future music. Bass or otherwise.

Premiere: Prinze George – Upswing (Dinesh & LioBeats Remix)

For all the reasons we fell in love with an early Flume, is why we fell in love with NYC’s Prinze George’s latest remix received. Punching through and between the originals vocals with huge bursts of triumph Dinesh & LioBeats keep the listener rocking with the Future sounds of our time. Daft Punk’s ‘Robot Rock’ lingers in the back of one’s mind while listening, to a degree. Light drum builds into just as hard glitching hits as the track progresses are a stairway into an affirmation of believing the future is now, and while life isn’t always fair, anything is possible. The track is available for free download for a time. You can listen and compare the original and check the rest of Prinze George’s self titled EP HERE.
