Vanity 6 – “Nasty Girl” [Hardcore Math User Remix]


Vanity 6cover

So we’re are back with another cool remix for our “Classics Remixed” section of the blog. This time I bring you the Prince penned classic, “Nasty Girl” by his protégé girl group Vanity 6. This sexy R&B jam was released back in 1982 and still sounds as good and fresh today as it did 30 years ago!

A funny thing about this song is that Lead singer Vanity, who is now a Christian preacher, has denounced the song and told the members of her congregation who listen to “Nasty Girl” to “keep praying for the Holy Spirit”. LOL.

Willow Smith – “Sugar and Spice”


Listen to Willow Smith’s beautiful and gloomy new song “Sugar and Spice.” The song samples Radiohead’s dreary track “Codex” from the album The King of Limbs. 

With lyrics like  “I tried to be sugar and spice, but I’m melancholy and can’t do anything right / The monsters under my bed keep making noise at night, I just want silence”  the track evokes whats currently going-on in the US (world ) right now; Sandy Hook, Suicide, Bullying, etc. There is tremendous maturity bursting through this track, it’s hard to believe that Smith still only 12 years old.

Smith’s debut, Knees and Elbows is schedule to drop sometime this year.

What do you guys think of this track?!

Kids Of The Apocalypse – “Masters Of The Sun” [New Music!!]



Check out mystery band, Kids Of The Apocalypse aka KOTA and their epic debut single, “Masters of The Sun.”

Currently, there is not a lot of information about the band but their video and single is generating major buzz around the blogsphere. Kids Of The Apocalypse arrives with an equally mysterious interactive website. HereTyping the word ‘MESSAGE’ on the site reveals the following message:

“living for a century without a frontier, the time for creation has begun. We will not seek power, only release it. It must live free now. THE UNIVERSE WANTS TO PLAY”

That message sounds like an ANONYMOUS announcement, doesn’t it?? hmm…? Guess we just have to wait and see :)

Check out the retro-style video for the stomping, synth-heavy, apocalyptic choral anthem, Masters of The Sun! This song is EPIC on every scale!

Gold Fields – “Dark Again” [Diamond Rings Remix]


Gold Fields - Dark Again

My favorite band at the moment, Gold Fields receives a cool dance remix for “Dark Again,” by Canadian, synth-pop tour mate, Diamond Rings! The killer remix debuted today over at Noisey.

Diamond Rings tells Noisey:

“After hearing “Dark Again” so many times on tour (always a good thing) it was a real challenge to try and re-imagine the song as a remix. Working in the tour van between shows on a laptop isn’t always ideal but that’s how I ended up putting everything together. When I listen back to the mix it takes me back to all of the sights and sounds that I soaked up while traveling across America with the Diamond Rings band and those amiable Australians.”

Check out the killer remix below! “Dark Again” is taken from the band’s upcoming debut, Black Sun due out in February 26!

HURTS – “MIRACLE” [Premiere]


UK synthpop duo Hurts, returns with a massive new single entitled, “Miracle” from their upcoming sophomore album, Exile.
Their identifying sythnpop sound takes a bit of a backseat on this track to sounds of crashing drums and soaring guitar riffs; but maintains the same poignant, lyrical punch that we have come to love (and expect) from the duo. This track is huge!

Take a listen!!
