Shadowbox Tour 2017- Beats Antique

Ladies and gentleman I have for you a unique, groovy, soulful pre made playlist for your listening pleasures. Beats Antique have created this collection of tracks they have collaborated with others on and music they have enjoyed over this past 2017 year. It is like no other playlist I have listened to. Zoe Jakes, David Satori, and Sidecar Tommy, this Oakland based group have made a genre of their own, forging a curious alliance between middle eastern traditions and potent west coast circus, underground hip hop, breakfast brass band, down tempo, glitch and dubstep.

If you are lucky enough to live in a city that this tour is coming to, first of all get your tickets, and second listen to this playlist as many times as you please to get amped up for the wicked soul filling experience you are about to be a part of. The first time I had the pleasure of being a part of a Beats Antique show I walked away feeling re charged and warm inside, exploding with all good vibes and so much love.

My favourite track off this playlist is Beats Antique- Let It All Go (feat. Preservation Hall Jazz Band). It’s crunchy, classy, and catchy with that swingy jazz vibe that is right up my alley.  Take a listen to this 31 tremendous track selection and choose your favourite!

Much Love

Cat’n Around Mix- DLIGHT

DLIGHT -and what a delight this dude is. I’m sure if you are in the festival scene you have been alarmed by Dalen’s snake or at least noticed the sexy cat loving power couple that make up Dayla. From the booming metropolis of Grande Prairie and although quite new to the DJ world, DLIGHT is no new face in the electronic music scene. Thanks to JayFresh, the music scene in Grande Prairie is very impressive and with mixes like DLIGHT has just dropped it’s about to get that much better.

“I thoroughly enjoy digging through the endless spaces of life to discover music, and then mixing these nifty tunes for the great people to hear.” -DLIGHT

This mix is a total reflection of those words. Filled with non stop top notch tracks, from Golden Era Hip Hop to funky feel good classics, its got all the right vibes. If your’e looking for a fresh new face to follow, it’s your lucky day! Give this salt of the earth a taste and satisfy those musical cravings.

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!

Planet Fruition- Isaac Chambers

Isaac Chambers, the small dude with big sound. This young music guru has more talents than I thought possible! From rapping and singing, to playing guitar, keyboards, percussion and programming to top it all off.  With a list like that it’s no wonder he has such an impressive variety in genres and sounds. From earthy Hip Hop, Downbeat, Reggae and World music grooves to full power Progressive Trance, Techno and House. His sound is unique, fresh and packed full of feel good vibes.

Hailing from the land of the Kiwis, Isaac has made quite the name for himself. In the last few years he has released two full length albums, five EP’s and over ten singles on local and international record labels. Known for his infectious energy, perfect production, and ability to get the dance floor moving and groovin’ with all the most positive vibes, he is high on my list to see live. Whether you’re chillin at home, jammin on a road trip, or getting stoked for the weekend, Isaac Chambers is your man. Press play, sit back and enjoy!

Rooted- Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless Leg Syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to move one’s body to stop uncomfortable or odd sensations. -Wikipedia

This musical team from Austria may cause a similar urge in the body, but with zero harm and fully voluntary movements. The trio that make up Restless Leg Syndrome include long time DJ and producer, d.b.h. and Austria’s DJ champion title holders for the last decade, producers and turntable wizards, Chrisfader and Testa. Their concept behind the joint venture is to take a specific genre of music, sample and flip it into a danceable beats.  With the amount of talent and experience this wicked trio hold, they have created a sound that is groovy, grungy and one-of-a-kind.

Their new record “Roots” is Restless Leg Syndrome’s own personal version of traditional Tyrolean sounds combined with beats and cuts. These guys had every instrument recorded for this project and it is evident when listening. Every note is crisp, crunchy, and contagious, giving you no choice but to at least head bob, butt sway, shoulder shrug or full on get low and rock out.

After listening to the album over and over, its depth and distinctive sound make me fall in love with it more and more each time. It blows my mind that they only have just over 2000 followers. With talent and top-notch tunes like these guys have, that number needs to change. Spread the word fellow melomaniacs!
