Northern Nights

 

 

Nestled in NorCal’s Redwood expanse sits the boutique music festival that is Northern Nights. Part campers’ picturesque escape, part music aficionados’ river-dance party, and part earth-conscious permie gathering, this festival stands out in its efforts to impact positive change. With non-profits involved in almost all the inner workings of NNMF, it’s clear to see a greater purpose at play. That energy permeates as attendees can be seen picking up random trash and having meaningful conversations. While the fest-MC’s rather arrogant comment of “at the end of the day, it’s just music” did little to share the message in a well-deserved light, the five-thousand present made it pretty clear that leaving the world a better place is the onus probandi.

Glasgow’s Tongues and modulated electro-pop go hand in hand. His use of synth, modulated vocals, and catchy rhythms lead to emotional swells that are a step above typical feel-good fare.

Light YearTickets

 

LA’s premier music festival, HARD, is coming up this weekend and it boasts one of the better lineups we’ve seen this season. (Sunday Funday anyone?) To help kick off the party early, we’ll be hosting a HSMF pre-party. Headlining the night will be Light Year whose genre blending style still holds a place in our hearts; his HARD 2012 set was something else.

 

The homie Bones, RYME, and Graff will be providing support for the night. Special guests will be rolling through as well to help keep the moods going. It’s going to be a big night. See you there and again at HARD!

 

HOW TO ENTER

Standard procedure. The contest ends at 12PM Friday, July 31st!

Santa Monica based vocalist and producer (and golfer and student) Leven Kali’s recent release, 4102, pulls together all that is right with soul, funk, hip-hop, and R&B. Then it throws in modern styles to send extra sexy chills down the spine for good measure. We’re so down with this free and timely 9-tracker. Suffice it to say, this guy has got a bright future ahead of him.

Fort RomeauTickets

 

While his solo work tends to veer a bit more into ambient and experimental house, Fort Romeau’s remixes and mixed sets are chock full of groovier dancefloor house rhythms. This installment of WAVS will highlight his skill in skirting those lines. His mixing is always done live and flows to the mood of the crowd, so don’t expect any cookie cutter stylizations. Locals PrettyBoyPaul and Torosbros will lead off this foray into house music.

One of the fastest rising lyricists in the future beats/bounce scene, GoldLink has been getting major attention this past year. His 2014 mixtape The God Complex was the definitive marker of his skill with flow and social commentary. He blends the two together into energetic and sporadic rap that is no less than impressive. And with a voice as unique as his, it’s hard not to pay attention.

 

GoldLink – Dance on Me

GoldLink – Bedtime Story
