YOLO List: Week 71 (+Justice Announce North American Tour!)

by Skinny Genes Categories: skinny genes, YOLO list |

Party people! Sorry for the lag on this one. Been having some connections issues, but without further ado, here’s #71! And with me I bring some pretty epic news. Starting small, Porter Robinson is playing in OC at Sutra for $20 limited presale tickets. Trying to make this a big one for everyone in the area, especially since his show in LA sold out before I even had a chance to notice they were on sale. Get tickets here. Hurry!

What I’m most excited about is FINALLY the announcement of a Justice North American tour!!! The first electronic show I ever saw was Diplo and Justice at the Mayan in 2008. Shortly thereafter, everything about this music made sense, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. One of the highest energy and most fun livesets I’ve ever been a part of. Since this tour is in support of the release of Audio, Video, Disco, we can expect a revamped liveshow to match. AH! One thing you’ll notice is the lack of Southern California dates. Before I turned to snapping my laptop in half, it all hit me. They have dates coincidentally around SoCal during the first and second weekends of Coachella. I think it’s safe to say that the pioneers of modern day electronic and rock will find themselves in Indio come April. Scope their stops after the jump.

NEW Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Dream On

by Skinny Genes Categories: electronic, indie, skinny genes |  

An unexpected free release from a solid artist is always an occasion. Orlando of TEED even admitted it “feels good to just put a track out there without all the release build up,” and I’m gonna have to second that. If you’re not familiar with TEED, it’s not too late! His sound is reminiscent of a darker Calvin Harris but is unique and just as dancy in its own right. He also put out a mini video for the song that I enjoyed and you can too after the jump. After minimal discussion about this track with my friends, it is confirmed that this track is 65% chill, 35% mellow, and 100% awesome. Yup. This track is worthy of 200% of adjectives.

If you enjoyed this track or any of our other posts on the guy, please do the good deed and go ‘like’ his facebook page. The man deserves it.

YOLO List: Week 70

Woah! Just hit me that it’s been 70 straight weeks since I started doing these guys. Also realized that I have to take a moment to reflect on how long I’ve been doing these every ten lists. But fuck it! Maybe at some point it’ll be at every hundred lists….I don’t see an ending in the foreseeable future, but then again, it’s hard to see the future so I’m playing it by ear. I focused on a few releases this past week that I’m really happy to share! Some off compilations, some off just looking around, some for free, some not, two different artists called Oliver, all really good stuff. I always think they’re good though. Enjoy #70!

NEW Death Cab for Cutie Remixes! (Dillon Francis | RAC)

by Skinny Genes Categories: electronic, indie, skinny genes |  

My preteen world collides with the pre-restofmylife world yet again! If you weren’t aware, Death Cab for Cutie has been unveiling a new remix every other week leading up to the release of their Codes and Keys album on November 22. Here’s an update on the outstanding ones that have been dropped since Cut Copy started the line.

Thanks to Dillon Francis for dropping this bomb on us today. Kinda makes me LOL thinking about the Death Cab fans who stumble on this remix, because it’s nowhere near as mellow as the others. Classic Dillon “Nu Jump Up” as he dubs it, with weebs and wubs sure to satisfy all his fans. Despite the amount of his remixes, this one manages to stay relatively unique. I’ve just begun to accept his ability to do this…as there’s no explanation how someone can be so consistently awesome. I’m not hatin’ though.

I can’t say I’m surprised Death Cab reached out to our favorite indie remixers RAC, so I won’t. These guys have that Midas touch when it comes to feel good indie choons. This one is no different. A light hearted dancy beat matched seamlessly with Gibbard’s voice has me itching to add this to my library. Another huge remix on RAC’s résumé. I really love this talented bunch. Kudos boys!

YOLO List: Week 69

by Skinny Genes Categories: skinny genes, YOLO list |  


Hedi Slimane

In honor of this being #69 and me being horribly immature, this week’s list consists of some prime get-down-and-dirty beats. Sexy house tracks and hard hitting electro bangers. I’m stoked that the C+A+D HQ has caught the disco bug, because I’ve never been able to give the genre a rest. There’s a timeless catchiness about its vibes that’s spawned so many new types of music, stemmed from the disco fever phase. Download the zip file, toss ‘em in a playlist, light up the candles and let your love making reach a whole ‘nother level. It’s on me!
