Pretty Face- easyruckus

Easyrukus

Pretty Face is the newest track from the Canadian based duo – easyrucks – taking root in Golden, BC. These two are close to my heart and I am stoked to be able to give them a shout out for this super dope track just dropped a few weeks ago. Music is something that’s connected so many souls in this universe; I hope for nothing more than that – if you are reading this- your heart is filled with connection and compassion for other humans, daily.

Homegrown Artists Edmonton Sessions: Vol. III Britt’s Theme

Kusch3Music has been the avenue for how I met the majority of my closest friends. I am sure most of you can agree the same thing. I met one of the most amazing humans at Shambhala in 2012. Britt Geddie. Her energy was infectious, you could see her smile across the ranch. Britt was that person who you would instantly connect with, feeling like you had known each other for years. From dancing deep in forests of Shambhala, to the middle of the ocean on Holy Ship, Britt was always smiling, and loved music that got her booty movin!

This homegrown session is special as it is a tribute to Britt. Britt, an original High Kicks member passed away unexpectedly this past summer, leaving a massive hole in not only our friend circle, but in our scene. Kusch, an Edmonton based producer/dj and friend to High Kicks wanted to create a mix that would capture Britt in every aspect. With the help of Jules Corpuz they encapsulated the energy Britt always carried. This mix is fun, bouncy, and beautiful. Just like Britt. I can only imagine the emotions that were coming through when making this. On behalf of High Kicks & Face Licks we want to say thank you to Kusch and Jules for letting us remember Britt in the most positive way.

These Days – Rudimental feat Jess Glynne, Macklemore & Dan Caplen (GRiZ remix)

Alright friends. I have a question for you to ponder. Why do breakup songs have to be sad or angry??? Why cant one be fun and funky? Rudimental must have thought that and made that change with this track. These Days is just a great mindset to have following a break up. The original is amazing in itself but GRiZ just takes this to a whole other level. If you never heard this song before you wouldnt know its about a break up until you pay attention. Your first impulse is to just smile and dance.

Thats what GRiZ does. The master of funky and happy beats never fails. It is great hearing some new tracks from him, even if its a remix. He adds his signature funky bass and sprinkles that delicious sax in just the right places. Were hoping we dont have to wait too much longer for some fresh original tracks from the king of “future funk”.  Until then enjoy this!

Atlas – Lane 8

Lane 8.jpgWarning: It is about to get really happy in here. If you’re not wanting to smile and dance around with your friends laughing and hugging maybe skip this one. Lane 8 just dropped his new album Little by Little and it seriously takes you to such a happy place. Its the kind of album you want to listen to while laying in grass on a warm day, or dancing in the middle of the ocean. This track Atlas is a prime example of the escapism this album offers.

This song builds slow leading to a climax that leaves you with a big goofy smile on your face. I could keep talking about it but I can only say happy so many times. You have to experience it for yourself and then you will understand, So close your eyes, let go and enjoy this beautiful song.

Juggy- Oily (Nick Bike Edit)

Hello all you music loving listeners! Today I am introducing yet another amazing DJ to the already top-notch Western Canadian roster we are so blessed to call ours. Nick Bike is a multi genre DJ from Vancouver, BC and has 2 regional Red Bull 3style championships under his belt. Nick’s major influences include Skratch Bastid, Jazzy Jeff, Eh! Team, A-Trak, and Premier. Along with regularly releasing music under The Beat Junkies record pool, Nick’s edits and 45s have found their way into set lists of other DJs such as Skrillex, Grandtheft, and Jazzy Jeff, as well as radio playlists around the world.

This new track, Juggy, is funky, fun and hot off the press. It’s a get up and groove, lose the Monday blues kind of tune. Get creative and add your own words, spit a sick freestyle or get down and dirty on the dance floor. Whatever you’re feeling this track is sure to put a smile on your face and get you ready to conquer the world.

Happy Listening Melomaniacs!
