FULL POST

At just one year old, Glasgow 5-piece WHITE have been making heads talk. Their newest single, ‘Future Pleasure’, was just released and it is a frenetic glam-rock influenced track that mixes in dance-able rhythms. The blend of genres touched on come together as something greater than the sum of its parts. Leo Condie’s vocals tie it all together with a sense of theatrical hedonism a la track title.

 

For now, they’re land locked to tours in the UK, but with the excitement behind them, don’t be surprised if and when they blow up stateside within the year. Get the single and keep your ear on them.

 

 

 

Lxury - Into the Everywhere

Lxury is definitely one of the more bold producers in the game right now. His sound is a cross between UK garage, house, and who knows what else. Honestly, we don’t really care because, when it comes down to it, it most certainly spurs movement.

 

His newest EP Into The Everywhere is out now on Greco-Roman.

 

Tracklist
01. Pick You Up
02. Equals
03. Square 1 (feat Deptford Goth)

CRSSDFESTTICKETS

 

The San Diego music scene has the reputation of being considerably fragmented across genres. In the early part of the century, Electronic music gained traction thanks to our buddies at LED and SoundLogik. Still, artists at the forefront of the scene appeared in SD sporadically. FNGRS CRSSD was born in early 2013 with the aims of changing the dynamics of the SoCal music scene. CRSSDFEST is that change.

PillowTalk | Buy Je Ne Sais Quoi

Wolf+Lamb artists PillowTalk believe in sexy-smooth; 2011’s The Come Back exposed me to that. Their recent (and first) LP Je Ne Sais Quoi is a fusion of R&B, disco, house, dance, pop, and techno [D.A.G.!] that has surpassed all my expectations and has taken over our ears here at C+A+D. It’s been nearly 2 months of listening and we’re still finding out why we love it so much.

I like to think it is due to the heart-warming dreaminess in each track. Opener, ‘Our Story’, sets it up perfectly – this album is a soulful sonic dance adventure. The stories may differ, but the feel-good soul is absolute. They’ve put Je Ne Sais Quoi up for your free streaming pleasure on SoundCloud. Show the crew some love and buy it!

While you’re here, check out one of my all-time favourite mixes too.

HVOB

We touched base with Anna Müller and Paul Wallner of HVOB (Her Voice Over Boys) to express our gratitude for their amazing album, and they gifted us with an exclusive mix that we’re delighted to share with you. It’s 63 minutes of house that seamlessly blends the songs on their debut album, along with other rhythmic inspirations and remixes available on their EPs. It showcases the duo’s tremendous talent at mixing and sheds a whole new light on the sound we fell in love with. It’s safe to say that we’re waiting with bated breath to see them in a live setting. Enjoy!

Delightful Exclusive

Allow me to introduce Parov Stelar; a very unique Austrian Producer and DJ. He’s one of the many electronic artists who are currently reviving big band and swing music. I couldn’t be happier with this movement! Parov is credited with the creation of the Electroswing genre. You can’t help but feel that this is swing music for the 21st century, complete with all the trumpets, synthesizer, saxophone, and bass you’d ever need for the new age. The best part is that he’ll be touring with his live trio. Meaning that there will be live instruments! You’re almost guaranteed to nod your head, tap your foot and just groove out to these tunes. Consider adding him to your Coachooser for Sunday.

This is 26 days too late, but better late than never. Those of us who haven’t lived under a rock have clearly noted the impact of EDM, with DJs and producers moving en masse towards plastic feeling happy chords, radio-friendly vocals and generic “drops.” It may have been ubiquitous this year, but with producers such as Disclosure, Cyril Hahn, Snakehips and Maribou State keeping the quality standards high, I’m hardly complaining.

Trapstyle, in all of its over-hyped glory, continued to develop at a head-spinning rate thanks to the sheer restlessness of its key protagonists (Flosstradamus, Baauer, RL Grime and UZ). On the other hand, disco dug its platformed heels into all things shiny; from revivalist edits, to contemporary cuts and a newfound appreciation of the originals themselves (RIP Donna Summer). Thanks to Aeroplane, Breakbot, Cherokee and the like, it seems all was good under the disco ball.

So what musical movement is in store for 2013? Well, your guess is good as mine. What I can say with certainty, though, is that aside from electronic music’s lust for the latest trends, good music is good music. Hopefully this list proves it.

After the jump. (more…)
