Retro-funky doesn’t even begin to describe Saint Motel. Their 2012 debut Voyeur and its exuberance was received extremely well by listeners in the indie-pop scene. More recent EP My Type has been earning them more clout as a hip 80’s pop-rock outfit. With a live set that is bound to keep you shimmying. Then there’s jazzy piano, horns, and sax thrown in for good measure, Saint Motel have got a certain zest about them that would be foolish to kick off Sunday without.

TICKETS

 

Tomorrow night, CONTROL at Avalon will be going off with some heavy beats. King of the fo-fo-fadi foodchain Trippy Turtle will be bringing his Jersey Club bounce with Pomo and Promnite as support. Alongside his HW&W labelmates and their R&B inclinations, Pomo has developed his own style akin to sultry disco beats. Promnite and the Athletixx team, on the other hand, have been flipping some solid rap style.

 

All in all, the night is looking to get pretty hood. So get your tickets and get down with us. If you can’t make it out, then strongly consider heading up the coast to SB with our buddies in We the Beat to catch the day-after party with Pomo.

 

Aluna George – Supernatural (Pomo Remix)

 

Trippy Turtle – Diplo & Friends mix

 

Partynextdoor – Recognize (Promnite Remix)

Fasten your seat belts friends. Prepare for departure. Aeroplane is ready to blast off into discoville with a fuel tank filled to the brim with funk and groove. Didn’t know you could operate machinery with solely funk and groove?! It’s never too late to learn something new.

 

On the real though, this guy has been one of the most consistent disco house producers in the scene. Once a duo, but now the reigns have been taken by Vito and he’s holding his own quite well. The other guy split off and formed The Magician…you may have heard of him. Vito’s remixes and mixes are something we always can count on to be extremely special. Now we get to see him in the snow on the beautiful lands of Tahoe!

 

Vito is headlining THE IGLOO stage on Monday night, but he’s also playing an afterparty on a boat with Snakehips that same night!!! Everything I love. Get tickets to that here.

 

 

Justin Timberlake – Sui & Tie (Aeroplane Remix)

Back in June, Slaptop released his first original track, ‘Sunrise’. Ever since that day, he’s been turning heads all over the circuit thanks to his summery yet deep funk-house. The rise of Slaptop was definitely timed perfectly, but his hard work since then is what has earned him a spot at Snowglobe 2014.

 

With several remixes and a couple of originals to his name, Slaptop has proven he’s got a unique sound that’s bound to get you warmed up as the sun sets on Sierra (NYE | Wednesday @ 5:15pm). Come get loose with us.

Our favourite funkateers have been teasing us for quite some time with the release of their upcoming album White Women. Today, they birthed a big single featuring the ever-so-sultry vocals of Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi) to help calm our nerves. I don’t know why I didn’t consider this collab before, but it couldn’t be more perfect. We’re bringing in the new year of music right with a big thanks to this feel-good funky-soul track. Catch them on their tour!
