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!

Late Night People – GoldFish

New music out from the South African duo GoldFish. Back in September one of my co-authors Whit did a fantastic write up of the single from this album – If I Could Find. The album follows suit with more funky, blues, instrumental, bassy goodness. There are even a few tropical house type vibes in here. Great vocals throughout and every track flows nicely into the next. This is a perfect feel good album to transition us back to the real world after a long weekend.

Maybe Whit will be a little choked I snagged this one, maybe she won’t. If she is, then maybe she’ll think twice about posting any new music from my future wife – REZZ. Muahaha.

Happy Thanksgiving!

RIGHTEOUS – Hippie Sabotage

Wow, I am three for three on the sibling duo’s right now- how is that a thing? Hippie Sabotage is composed of two brothers from Sacramento, California. I absolutely fell in love with their remix of the dark pessimistic love song Habits (Stay High)- which sounds absolutely nothing like this fucking epic track they released today. The guitar makes me want to drive 185 kilometers/hour in a convertible around windy mountain roads pushing the limits, butterflies, stronghold on the wheel, steady gaze. Check out their flow.

 

Hippie Sabotage

I sincerely hope they release 100 more tracks just like this one. Swooon. Do yourself a favor and give these boys a follow on Soundcloud.

Can’t Change Crazy – Leo Napier (Defunk Remix)

Well, this home grown Calgarian has had my heart for many, many years. Not only are his tracks super consistently impressive, the last year or two I find this soulful blues infusion to be extremely captivating. As always, I am proud to brag about the Canadian music scene, and this gentlemen is worth the boast. Have you ever seen him live? The way he throws down is pretty fricken sexy — welp, he is pretty sexy all together. If you haven’t checked out Defunk before, thats bananas. Give him a follow on Soundcloud and make sure you cut some shapes if you ever get blessed with having him in your own home town. The lyrics in this track are playful and I am sure a few of you can resonate with a crazy bitch or two (can’t we all). Hands to the sky and hips to the floor, shake it for me.

Love Always, Live On The Edge.

xx- Whit

 

A Future in Blue – Zoogma

I always enjoy being surprised by an artists or group. I had never heard of Zoogma before and decided to give this album a listen. And then the funk hit!!! And if you know me you know I love me some funk!

Zoogma is a 4 piece band from Nashville/Atlanta and they know how to bring the funk in an amazing fashion. They fuse a lot blues, rock, groovy bass lines and synths and it sounds fantastic!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! Till next time keep fit and have fun!
