YOLO List: Week 73

by Skinny Genes Categories: skinny genes, YOLO list |  


Gonna try something new this week…I’m especially fond of every track, so you get my two cents for each!


^click for whole list

Knife Party’s first EP is being released today for free! I was fortunate enough to get a listen to this last week and I have NOT been able to let this one down. Massive dubstep track that blasts through really good speakers. Kinda reminds me of Skrillex + Rusko. I’m obsessed. Get the full EP here.
Knife Party – Fire Hive (Original Mix) (Dubstep)

Don’t know how I missed these tracks because they’re fairly old. But hey! It’s like getting a new release! They should call these “BB-Sides” because they were extra tracks on a CD if you bought it from Best Buy.
Foster the People – Chin Music For The Unsuspecting Hero (B-Sides) (Indie/Alt)
Foster the People – Love (B-Sides) (Indie/Alt)

Zeds Dead…these f*ckin’ guys blew my mind at Haunted Mansion this year. They played a lot of their original tracks that hit SO hard live. This one is no different. When it drops to dub in the middle, I die. Expecting big things from them in 2012.
Zeds Dead – Ruckus The Jam (Original Mix) (Electronic)

Boys Noize released a compilation album of 24 remixes that he’s done over the years. Some we’ve heard. A lot we haven’t. All of them unique in their own right. Boys Noize proves once again that time has no effect on his production abilities. The release is out in the UK and France for now, but will be out in the US and internationally later this month.
Kaiser Chiefs – Everyday I Love You Less And Less (Boys Noize Remix) (Electronic)
Teenage Bad Girl – Cocotte (Boys Noize Rework) (Electronic)

Bingo Players have a knack for putting out some of the most quality house tracks out of everyone. I love their sound! Has a kind of feel to it that makes you want to be in an arena with 100k people. This song is no “Cry (Just A Little),” but it’s just as dancy if not more.
Bingo Players – Mode (Original Mix) (House/Electronic)

Shook: The boogie king. Older remix, but my friend sent it to me and I fell in love all over again. He’s got a real special ability with the sounds he makes. So groovy! Get his stuff from SoundCloud.
The Ting Tings – Hang It Up (Shook Remix) (Indie/Dance)

TGIK is awesome! Don’t really know what genre he falls into because he tends to mix it up a lot. His synths cut to the core, and this little track is a lot of fun. More for summer time, but hopefully it brings y’all some warmth in this gloomy winter.
TGIK – Pick Myself Up (TGIK Remix & Tribute to Peter Tosh) (Dance/Reggae)

AIR – Seven Stars ft. Victoria Legrand (Upcoming Album ‘Le Voyage Dans La Lune’)

by Skinny Genes Categories: indie, skinny genes |  

French duo AIR are set to release their seventh studio album titled Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip to the Moon) in 2012! Pretty excited since, although I enjoyed their most recent album Love 2, I’m pretty sure it’s time to venture into a new sound. Which they seem to be on the same page about, considering they got Victoria Legrand of Beach House to get her beautifully deep voice in on AIR’s intergalactic production. It’s cool that both of their sounds are distinct. The pianos scream Beach House and then AIR goes on and throws in those space noises that they usually use. You’ll know what I’m talking about. The album is set to release February 6th, 2012…the year of ze end of ze world! Or the year of nothing happening and everyone shutting the f*ck up about it. Anyway here’s what Nicolas Godin said of the album:

“Projects like this refresh our brain. Making your own albums all the time is too narrow-minded. At some point you write the same song. So you need new blood all the time. We are like vampires.”

For sure bro. Awesome track! You can pick up the low quality version I found online below.

Avicii – Levels (Skrillex Remix)

by Skinny Genes Categories: dubstep, skinny genes |  

Got a video of Skrillex at HARD Haunted mansion doing a “Levels” mashup (see below) at HARD Haunted mansion, but it looks like that wasn’t enough for him. He took the lighthearted, feel-good jam and converted it to a twisted out dub banger with another level of grime. Wasn’t expecting this to come out so soon, but I’m not one to complain. The combination is reminiscent of how I felt when I heard Kaskade remixed “Scary Monsters And Nice Sprits.” I could get used to this! Keepers on keepers this week.

NEW Dillon Francis Remixes! (Chuckie [PREVIEW] | Steve Aoiki, Rivers Cuomo)

by Skinny Genes Categories: dillon francis, dubstep, electronic, skinny genes |  

After coining the genre “Nu Jump Up” and defining what can be considered legitimate moombahton, Dillon Francis is back to his roots with this one. Quality dub coming straight off his Euro tour. I got a test in 4 hours, and I should be sleeping, but I couldn’t hold off on letting you guys get a taste of this. It’s crazy how established Dillon’s gotten in such a short amount of time and how clear the heights he can reach are. Last person I know that’s got this much all around love so quick is Skrillex, and Dillon’s following in his footsteps quicker than I expected. Can’t wait til this is released!

Steve Aoki, Rivers Cuomo – Earthquakey People (Dillon Francis Remix)

This one came out a bit ago, but I didn’t have the chance to grab the final version when it came out. Dillon said this is his favorite remix that he’s done, while I think it’s arguably his best. Definitely worth saving.

Got probably the most exciting press email I’ve ever gotten yesterday. Anyone who’s been following our recent posts on these guys knows about our unconditional love for Knife Party. I got to have a taste test of the two unreleased tracks, ‘Destroy Them With Lazers’ and ‘Fire Hive,’ and all I can say is that surpassed any and all high expectations I had already set. Pretty sure these guys have found their niche. Check out the teaser, along with some fun facts and tracks they’ve previously released!

One more thing! Go vote for them on Wobbleland’s FaceBook so they bring them to Nor Cal in the Spring! Last year Wobbleland had Skrillex, Nero, Datsik, and 12th Planet and was probably the most fun dubstep show I have EVER been to. GO! GO!
