LoveSauce – Winter ’17

IMG_5079-1

This is the first chapter of a seasonally compiled playlist designed by HKFL own author Whit to flood your ears with LoveSauce tunes from beginning to end. The LoveSauce genre was initially coined by Pumpkin:

“Simply put, this is music to fall in love to.”

There is no shortage of music with this particular vibe, and I find the feel of this playlist will give you a sense of what I mean by my take on the LoveSauce genre. These playlists are designed to be shared, enjoyed, and inspire deeper connection. Whether that connection is deepened between you & your soulmate, your best friend, or even your own inner voice. Love is the answer to most of the questions asked in this world; Love is the master key which opens the gates of happiness. Let my playlist fuel you to feel alive.

History – Let’s Mars

800x800

History – is the first track ever released by Let’s Mars, and is just a taste test for their upcoming album – Always 15 Minutes Late . Let’s Mars is a musical duo comprised of Talia Londoner (vocals) and Oren Emanuel (electronic and instrumental mastermind). Together they have created this beautifully dark and complex future bass track with rich lyrics and a tasty bassline. “Suddenly I want to touch you when I know I should be saying goodbye”. A sentiment most of us can completely identify with at certain points in our lives. I am incredibly excited to see what else these two offer up with the album drop and feel like so should you. Give these babe’s a follow on soundcloud to stay on top of it: LET’S MARS

“Everything about this project has been a surprise” says vocalist Talia Londoner, “ I never thought I’d ever be part of something like this, but now I can’t imagine life without it”.

“ It came out of nowhere”, agrees her musical partner Oren Emanuel . “ We started this thing with no expectations,  but it took on a life of it’s own and became more important to us than we could have ever imagined”.

Let their excitement for this project spill over into your own life, and inspire yourself up a cocktail of creativity today.

One Love – Whit

Mini Mix- Jenny Louca

Jenny Louca…Who are you? Where are you from? Why have I never heard your music before? And how do you only have 20 followers!?

Within the first few seconds of listening to this mix I was hooked. That electronic bluesy harmonica sound is just so sexy and infectious it had me feeling tingly and wanting more. From the classic tracks by Stevie Wonder and Red Hot Chilli Peppers to beats you may not have heard before, these tunes will keep you on your toes, whether your listening for whats next or on the floor dancing. The combination of funk and swing in my ears is like eating my favourite home cooked meal made by my mom. after travelling for months and that is the perfect description for this 14 minutes and 12 seconds you are about to listen to. Get your speakers turned up loud, booty ready to shake and have a time!

Much Love!

The Ride EP – Megan Hamilton

Voice of an angel coming at’cha! Megan Hamilton dropped her new EP off Westwood Recoordings earlier this morning, and let me tell you – it’s unreal. Her SoundCloud bio reads – “Causing funky riots and catchy bass tunes.” Bass most certainly fuels all six of these songs, along with Megans vocals, her own produced music, laced together with live instrumentation. The next 21 minutes and 84 seconds are just that – a ride. This beauty is out of Minneapolis, and now signed on with our Canadian dudes ‘Westwood Recordings.’ She’s made a name for herself bringing a European feel to her sound on our side of the world, releasing with Buygore, Mixmash, Ghetto Funk, and Audiophile, to name a few labels. On social media, she labels her identifying genre, “funk butter.” -LOL. Oh, and how ’bout that album artwork? It’s killer 😉

Megan, if you’re reading this, please come play in Edmonton, Alberta. We appreciate your music!

Have a great weekend melomaniacs

No More – Dirtwire (ft. Moontricks)

As a recap, Dirtwire consists of David Satori of Beats Antique, Evan Fraser of Bolo and Mark Reveley of Jed and Lucia. This song is so nice and relaxing on the eardrums. Our Kootenay boys Moontricks pepper this with their instrumental world feel.

Dirtwire just dropped their new album, ‘Blaze.’ I’ve got that posted for you down below as well. It’s chalked full of great vocals, and what these three consider their forte – traditional instrumentation, world percussion, soundscapes, and electronic beats, all nicely strung together to make a really amazing group of tracks.

Enjoy!
