Home Is Where The Heart Beats- Vibe Street

O hey there Friday, I have been impatiently awaiting your arrival and those Friday feel good vibes you always seem to bring me. As I took a stroll on Soundcloud to find the perfect match to my mood I happened to turn onto Vibe Street and find just that. Sexy, spicy, sultry and the most smooth sound filled my ears and I couldn’t help but fall in love. The fusion of Electro-Glitchy-Hip Hop and Bluesy-Folk put the biggest smile on my face and I couldn’t help but get up and rock out.

Ben “Smiles” Davis is the  genius behind the fresh new flavour he has coined as “Grass-Hop/ Future- Folk”. Whether it’s an intimate show or a late night dance tent, Vibe Street is known to get the crowd feeling just right. Denver, CO is where he calls home, but with a sound so diverse he is gaining fans from across the world and from all different spectrums. Give him a follow and fill your soul with a refreshing dose of originality that you so desperately crave.

P.S. I couldn’t choose just one track, EP or Album so here is one of each!

2017 Shambhala Fractal Forest Mix – Slynk 

All the way across the world from Brisbane AU, Evan ‘Slynk’ Chandler brings the funk to our beautiful country, now settling in the coastal city of Vancouver. From his huge stylin’ framed glasses, twisted snap back hats, and massive energy filled tunes it’s clear why this guy is to many ‘the funkiest DJ on the planet.’ Does he ever really settle though?! He’s constantly bouncing around spreading his sickness – that is, his turntable scratching, hip-swinging, smile inducing, love facilitating sickness that’s personally got me ill to the core! I need no antidote. Just give me more of that funky stuff!

Slynks roots begin with a drum kit and piano lessons, which quickly spun into turntables (pun intended) and playing sets across Australia. It wasn’t long until big names like Shambhala Music Festival caught wind of this groovy dude.

Shambhala holds a special place in my heart, for a multitude of reasons. I know that for Slynk, that special feeling resides in him too. Shambhala was his first ever music festival, as well as his first trip over seas. I guess the vibes over here in western Canada were just right. Taken on by Danio Management , Slynk will continue to grow and evolve. What a treat that this unreal artist is so close to home.

Below you’ll find his 2017 Fractal Forest mix, and a short interview giving us a more intimate introduction to Evan Chandler, his take on music, and how his career has progressed. This mix is seriously addicting and high energy. He throws down some glitch, drum & bass, breaks, house, and killer drops – all concocted into a nice big majestic funky potion of – get the fuck up and move your body! Take one sip and I promise the only cure you’ll find for the Slynk sickness, is more Slynk.

Buckle up and prepare to get funkified! 

Enjoy this mix as much as I do. Much love!

So Flute by St Germain (Mozambo Remix)

Happy music = happy people.

Ok maybe not that simple but not far off. This tune is happy, it’s soaked in sun and runs with a smile. To feel uplifted by a song is one of the most comfortable and enchanting states to be in. So enough chit chat, hit play, and feel good.

Music … will help dissolve your perplexities and purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you.

Pirates, Punks & Politicians -The Bloody Beetroots (feat. Perry Farrell)

I have mentioned it before but I’ll repeat it again I am SO STOKED for The Great Electronic Swindle, the new album from Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo aka The Bloody Beetroots! From the few songs released so far you better believe we are in for some heavy electro/punk sound ready to smash dance floors!

Pirates, Punks & Politicians is one of the songs released out so far and well I think it more or less speaks for itself. It’s hard hitting, heavy and awesome. So turn it up loud and enjoy!

On The Run – NGHTMRE (feat. PASSEPORT)

NGHTMRE has been one of my favorite producers the last few years. He brings a fresh sound into the bass scene and keeps proving time and time again his skills as a producer are only getting better with each release. If you have the chance to see him get your butt on the dance floor and get ready to bust loose!

On The Run throws a lot at you and it all fits so well together. Starts with some amazing vocals from PASSEPORT. A heavy guitar riff slams into a big drop that only escalates into an eruption of bass! Bass face fully engaged here! Enjoy this one bass heads.
