Grimes Unveils The Official Video For “California”

Yet another amazing visual treat from GRIMES’ excellent Art Angels! Watch the official video for ‘California’ below!

Although the track might seem like a diss track to the city of angels…Grimes once explained to Pigeon & Planes that the track “It’s actually like a hate track for Pitchfork. Not for California, for like the music industry.” Explaining the it was written in response to the less than warm reception she received by the press when the song ‘GO’ was released.

Hard Lovin’ Woman: Juliette Lewis Premieres New Single ‘Hello Hero’ and New Rocumentary!

Although most people associate the name Juliette Lewis with movies, most music lovers like you and I know very damn well that she’s been kicking serious ass in the music scene for more than a decade now. First, as a frontwoman for the band Juliette and The Licks — they produced two insanely good albums, 2005’s You’re Speaking My Language and 2006’s Four on The Floor— and later as a lone rock-goddess with her killer 2009 solo-debut, Terra Incognita.

After years apart, Juliette And The Licks have finally reunited (hallelujah!!), announcing a string of live shows and promising new music very soon. But first, to satisfy our pop-rock thirst, Lewis has released a brand new track called, “Hello Hero”; a groovy, 70s-vibing pop-track with a really catchy hook co-written and produced with Florence and the Machine’s Isabella Summers. The track coincides with the release of the documentary Hard Lovin’ Woman, a short film directed by Michael Rapaport which explores the sacrifices Lewis has made to pursue her first love, music. If you never had the pleasure of seeing Juliette Lewis live, watch the 30-min film to get a glimpse of her electric bravado and contagious energy onstage.

Today she announced the name and a release date of a brand new album called, Take Her Up To Monto (album artwork above) out on July 8th!

AlunaGeorge and Flume Team Up For New Song “I Remember”

As AlunaGeorge prep the follow-up to their brilliant debut album Body Music; the futuristic R&B duo has team-up with up-and-coming new kid on the block, FLUME to deliver another enticing sampler (the first being “I’m In Control“) from their upcoming new record entitled, “I Remember.”

Aluna Francis premiered the track on Annie Mac’s BBC 1 radio show and had this to say about the bittersweet new track: “It’s pretty much how it sounds,” explained Francis. “You bump into an ex, you pretty much think you’ve really got over him, and there’s that moment when you bump into him, and you’re kind of acting like strangers… but there’s memories that pop up in your head, and in a way, you wish you could back up to the beginning and meet him again and go through the best bits.”

We love it! Check it out!

GIGAMESH & SOLIDISCO: THE U.S. OPEN TOURLIVE AT GOOD ROOM WITH JEFFERSON 909 + AKKI APRIL 14, 2016

 

Gigamesh, real name Matt Masurka, achieved higher success before releasing his first EP than many music producers do in their entire careers. As the producer of Mike Posner’s “Cooler Than Me,” the 2010 iTunes Pop Single of the Year, he was making waves behind the scenes long before coming to the spotlight. Eventually, however, music blogs caught wind of Masurka’s talent when he started releasing bootlegged reworks of tracks by artists like Michael Jackson and The Clash, and he has since been tapped for remixes for Foster the People and Theophilus London–this time, officially. The artist’s interest in multiple genres comes through in these reworks, but also in his own music, a combination of indie and dance that often pushes the boundaries of both genres. Now a three time multi-platinum selling artist, Gigamesh has released music on both legendary outfits Kitsuné and Our Label International, and a continuous touring schedule keeps him reaching fans new and old.

Buffalo, NY producers/DJs Solidisco are one of the most buzzing names in disco house music right now, with one of their most recent tracks, “Golden,” gaining them attention from music blogs such as Indie Shuffle, Caveman Sound, and GoodMusicAllDay. Both “Golden” and their newest single “Get In Love” have charted in the top 20 on HypeMachine in the past few months, leaving fans and critics alike waiting to see exactly what is coming next for the duo. Even fellow artists seem to be feeling the excitement behind Solidisco, with glowing endorsements of their music coming from EDM heavyweights A-Trak and Laidback Luke, among others. Even the legendary BBC Radio One program has taken note. Solidisco are undeniably on the rise.

Beyonce’s “Formation” Gets a Ballroom Remix by MikeQ

A few weeks back I attended my very first GHE20G0TH1K party in Brooklyn…and it was f***ing amazing to say the least. I don’t think I have ever danced that much my entire life. The almost six year long running event was founded by the D.J. and producer Venus X—whom among other DJs curate some of the best subculture music unheard-of in mainstream media today—genres like juke, ballroom house, dark hip-hop, and many many more.

Well, legendary ballroom producer/House DJ MikeQ, who back in February hosted the event, has added his own insanely-hot spin to the already-classic Beyonce anthem, “Formation”.

MikeQ tells The FADER.: “I made this remix not only because it was a hot song, but it stood for something and while half the world seems to hate Beyoncé…I completely get the [song]message,” “The track, once it drops repeating you dat BITCH, is like re-empowering in its own ballroom way.” 

Check out Q’s killer remix below, grab the free download and get you CUNTY-ON (*death drops).
