Temples In The Sky – SaQi

Saqi Temples in the Sky

SaQi is a classically trained producer, composer, trumpet player, and as such elegance rings through in all he creates. This album Temples In The Sky is EXTRA fresh off the press and will captivate you from the first second to the last. Many of these songs feature carefully selected vocalists which pair with SaQi’s ethereal vibe such as Deva Believa, Fanna Fi  and Shazieh & Attallah. This album is signed to the Jumpsuit Record label which has this super cool set up where all music released through them is “Name Your Price”: Jumpsuit Records. They also have an incredible roster of artists who release through them so they are an awesome soundcloud to follow.

Fun Fact: SaQi drew his name from the Sufi title for a mystic muse.

Let this tracklist orbit you slowly towards the troposphere and make sure you follow: SaQi.  XX- Whit

Dark Crystal – Minnesota

DarkCrystal-3000x3000Alright team huddle in. This is about to get intense. Minnesota is comin in big with this new track Dark Crystal. Dont be fooled by the groovy  opening. You will get lost in the movement, and then WHAMMY! Some heavy glitch gives you some sweet shin music and you’re doing backflips until you crash into your wall. A perfect imprint of your flailing body will always remind of that time Minnesota smashed the fuck out of you! Think it wont happen? Go ahead hit play, but dont get mad at me when your Mom’s favourite China is shattered on the ground.

Just when you think you are going in for another round what does Minnesota do? Does a 180 spin into some delicious drum n bass to ramp the energy level to an 11! This one will be out in full force in festival season next year, get ready to rage to this one!

Note: Events reported above are only mere speculations…..or are they???

Watch (Xie Remix) – Billie Eilish

IMG_5949

What an absolutely beautiful remix of Billie Eilish‘s song Watch. I personally am a bit of a tough crowd when it comes to remixes of songs that I’ve already fallen head over heals in love with… BUT Xie delivers a rework of synths and future bass – groove, while holding on to the essence of Billie’s vibe. Something super rad about this babe Xie: she is a trained producer, she sings, and she is a multimedia artist. What a full meal deal! With that set of skills don’t be surprised if you see her release an album to which she designed the cover art, and created every sound contained within.

I suggest looking out for this beautiful human in the near future to blast through into the spotlight’s of festivals such as EDC and Coachella. Follow Xia to stay connected:

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
