Take 2 Entertainment | Tickets

Take2Entertainment’s premier concert cruise is back for another year. The first show of 2014 is next weekend (5/3) and its looking to be mental! Not to say we expected any less. 3 decks. 2 stages.

Check after the jump for music!

The soundtrack of the night will be supported by Kastle (DoLaB at Coachella. One of the better sets), Le Youth (absolutely fitting!), Plastic Plates (nothing but respect, Felix), and more of southern California’s finest residents.

Leo Kalyan | SoundCloud

London dreamer Leo Kalyan has been on our radar for a while; his remixes and covers are nothing short of sexy. His mashup-cover of Duke Dumont’s ‘Need U 100% ft. A*M*E’ and Jessie Ware’s ‘Running’ was what caught our ear. His recent original ‘Temptation’ sparked this spotlight. It’s like silk.

LIZ | Soundcloud

So LIZ dropped her debut EP Just Like You through Diplo’s Mad Decent label last week. The Y2K stylized R&B bubblegum princess gives us 7 free songs on the EP – 5 of which had not been previously released. With production duties being handled by artists like Mr. Carmack, Djemba Djemba, Colta, and Lido, among others, the EP tackles a slew of different genres including UK Garage, Baltimore Club, and Pop; yet, most importantly centers itself around a chill R&B vibe. I’m a sucker for female vocals and LIZ delivers.

Buy the EP

We were first turned onto Australian Hayden James a few months back. His signature tune at the time was Permission to Love and we knew it was the blossoming of a smooth and soulful sweetness. We decided to let his sound ripen a bit. An EP and a few remixes later, we can comfortably say this lad isn’t to be overlooked. Hayden draws heavily upon Balearic beat to build a foundation of undulating pace and deep swinging bass.

He makes music to feel to. He’s a Future Classic.

Henry Krinkle

Florida’s Henry Krinkle makes aural creations that are necessary for any future house and R&B feel-good session. His most recent remix of Cyril Hahn’s Perfect Form sparked us to share him. He takes the already amazing song and slows it down to a sultry slur, drops some heavy tropical bass on top, and loops the sensual chorus throughout. He turns it into a soundtrack for lush summer-nights that will be on repeat for a while.

Smooth

Extra Krinkle-y

I’ve been trying hard to get into this but I really don’t feel it. I understand the appeal though, the instrumentals are really good it’s just all a little too dramatic for my taste. I guess I can’t handle all the emotion. That Drake feature is pretty cool surprisingly. All I know is a lot of unexpected little Jrs. are gonna be created as a result of this tape. Stream/DL the tracks below.

The Weeknd – Lonely Star
The Weeknd – Life of The Party
The Weeknd – Thursday
The Weeknd – The Zone (ft. Drake)
The Weeknd – The Birds Pt. 1
The Weeknd – The Birds Pt. 2
The Weeknd – Rolling Stone
The Weeknd – Gone
The Weeknd – Heaven or Las Vegas
