Summer’s here, and the living is easy. Today I thought I’d touch base on some sounds that I occasionally enjoy if the circumstance is right – SAINT WKND, the German prodigy child has brought together another beauty of an original created with the sole purpose of one thing – “GOOD VIBES”.
The song was brought to my attention by my close friend, and I must say that I’ve had it on repeat ever since.
I’ve been really into funky anthems, especially of the nostalgic nu-disco vibe type, the homie LA+CH has come forward with another awesome banger of such style:
If you like this song, I also reccomend getting into this jam by Cherokee ft. Gibbz called Teenage Fantasy- can’t get enough of these tunes.
Over and out, #FunkFam
I was informed that my east coast homies the Golden Pony have recently put their immensely popular remix series up for free download. They’ve got everyone from Flume & Chet Faker to ILOVEMAKONNEN and now I’m happy to bring these rad tunes to your attention once again!
Their remix of Simon & Garfunkel is clearly one of those timeless tunes that you just can’t fuck with, but the subtlety of their edit is such that the original nature of the song is left untouched. This tune really brings me back to when I was a kid, so I guess that the remix blends a bit smoother for me.
Check their remix of Dr. Dre’s classic Forgot About Dre and as always, grab the free download and slap these tunes on your iPod!
Some Jackin House from Whistler’s own SkiiTour. BC residents, if you’ve never caught these guys live, make it a priority. Highlights include Tim & Dave decked out in full ski gear, killer house sets and fake snow raining down from the DJ booth. Don’t forget to visit their soundcloud and grab your free download.

Most creative remix in a minute. Let alone of the anthem, ‘CoCo’ . Slot-A has been on the radar for a minute as one of the most consistently good remixers, this one though, goes ahead and levels up to a higher up pedestal. The below Common remix came out same day as the ‘CoCo’ Footwork re-envision.

Pop up-and-comer CAPPA hits us with some new material, after a long-drawn 2 year hiatus on all releases. We couldn’t be happier. If you love huge female vocal leads, you’ll dig this. Word to all producers – if you’re looking for an up-and-comer to bootleg – this release will be a dream come true.
Check out what all the fuss is about:
“I want people to feel like they can escape everyday life,” CAPPA says. “I think that’s what we’re all looking for when we’re listening to music, and I hope that listeners can do that with mine.” Stay tuned for more from CAPPA as she prepares the release of her EP later this Spring. ”
A belated post for Vancouver island’s WERK debut EP, ‘A Late Supper’ . The 22 year old has become the latest in what is becoming a long line of local greats with international reach.

MalLabel Music is out with the release and ‘A Late Supper’ can be DL’d HERE.
Also worth some peep game is WERK’s contributions to the High Noon Artist Pact:
