skinny genes

I wish I was still into video games, or that I at least had time to play them because their soundtracks are becoming more keen to the harder shit. If you don’t know already, EA Sports’ Syndicate is an action game set in 2069, and it’s looking to be a promising experience for everyone who’s into that stuff. The main track is getting some relatively high key remixes from Skrillex, Digitalism, Flux Pavillion and now NERO…so far. Nero’s version sets up an orchestral take that they’re SO good at weaving in with borderline lethal levels of bass. The song is set to download for free on their SoundCloud, so I linked it below. Easy enough. Cool shit I found out today though, Dillon Francis will be supporting the American leg of their world tour! So fresh. So clean.

Skrillex may be making serious grounds on his own, given his recent Grammy succes (kudos bro), but his label OWSLA is doing work as well! With the likes of Zedd, Porter Robinson, Kill the Noise, The M Machine and more, we get a pretty promising intro to Melbourne’s Nick Thayer. I wasn’t familiar with him ’til this EP, and I can confidently say there’s no better place for him than OWSLA. The EP ranges from 110 to 140 BPM, so it’s cool to get a taste of his range as a producer. His bouncy wubs and twisted cuts have a little bit of all his aforementioned label mates. The sound isn’t particularly “new,” but for what it’s worth, I can get down. Our favorites at the moment are Top of the World and Facepalm.

Support him on his FaceBook, and if you like his EP after streaming it, buy it on BeatPort…or go to his shows. This won’t be the last time we hear from him I’m sure.

Happy Sunday friends. I’ve been waiting for this list so I could attempt to put into words how huge the last two nights were. We were fortunate enough to catch our friends Young the Giant in the cusp of the most epic tour of their lives. Sold out show after sold out show all over the country. Awesome to see the response from the crowd. Very happy for them! We were able to take pictures and snag an interview, so stay posted on those.

And last night…I just……I don’t even…….I’m at a loss for words. A-Trak, Diplo and Skrillex hosted a pre-Grammy party and “monumental” doesn’t even cut it as a description. Haven’t felt that sort of energy from a crowd in too long. I’m just happy to have been a part of it all. I got some videos I’ll load up ASAP. Good luck to all the artists representing EDM in the Grammy’s tonight! In the words of Skrillex, “the future is awesome.” That it is, Sonny. That it is. Enjoy #82:

Happy Sunday! Our collective The Donuts had our first get-together on Friday that was very much a push towards us making our dream a reality. Thanks to everyone who came out and know this is just the beginning. Always moving forward with what you want to do. No “trying” or “hoping.” Those words leave too much room for failure. Scrap ’em! Plan your shit and get it done. You only can fail so many times before you succeed. If anyone can do it, it’s you! But you already knew that ;) Enjoy #81:

I hate being teased. Especially when I won’t see the fruits of the teasing for an extended period of time. TEED’s new single isn’t going to come out for two months. Which, in music time, is forever…What the hell! ‘Tapes & Money’ isn’t supposed to come out until April, and the album will follow in May. This track is yet another masterpiece from our prehistoric friend. He’s so good at being super ravy and distorted while still maintaining a feel-good sound overall. Definitely one of the most consistent producers right now.

Speaking of consistent producers, Dillon Francis is doing some teasing of his own. His is a little bit more short-ended, as his EP ‘Something, Something, Awesome’ is out in 10 days. I heard him drop all of these songs the last couple times I saw him. Shit goes hard. Majority Nu Jump Up, as he dubs it, and just the spiciest moombahton track at the end. He guarantees you getting laid if you buy it and it conveniently comes out on Valentine’s Day. GO:

We’ve been working with a couple of our friends and hometown heroes (including but not limited to Groove Monsters, Inc. and 12FV) to bake up a treat for everyone. The first friday of every month will hold a fresh new take on celebrating life in Orange County. Their words:

Life is crazy. You know that, we know that. Keep in touch? HA. Think of all those you once planned to “keep in touch” with. Think of all those good people and how great it’d be to actually catch up. Well! In an effort to reunite & rekindle those connections, under the banners of Creativity & Community we invite you to join us.

The FIRST FRIDAY of every month at Proof Bar will host a unique blend of art in it’s various forms. Our hope is that this night will not only inspire those looking to pursue a creative craft, but also reinvigorate the exhibiting artists to keep doing what they so beautifully do. A little positivity goes a long way; come get your re-up once a month!

All good music. All good people. All good things. We’re putting all the pieces together to have a legit, open-minded atmosphere in our area since LA and SD get all of the fun! Come kick it, try something new and save the worry of the night going wrong. You only live once! For the flyer, more info and music, click ‘more.’

Dammit! I typed this whole thing out and realized it’s a private stream. Go on here to get to it. I threw in some extra doggie beats below. But I’m still gonna talk about it :)

It’s nice to take a break with all of the consistently flowing electronic music to listen to something a little more soulful. Dr. Dog is set to release their sixth studio album next week and have put out its stream in preparation for their performance on Conan next week! Glad to see they’re doing big things. I’m streaming the album as I write this, and it takes me back to Fate, two releases ago. Really solid melodies and uplifting vocals that grab you. Makes you want to sing along even though you don’t know the words. But if you did, you’d find their talent extends through beautiful lyrics. Some quality psychedelic rock and roll.

Preorder the album on iTunes! And if you’re in Southern California, check them out at the Observatory in Orange County two days after their album release on February 9th! Tickets here.
