No More – Dirtwire (ft. Moontricks)

As a recap, Dirtwire consists of David Satori of Beats Antique, Evan Fraser of Bolo and Mark Reveley of Jed and Lucia. This song is so nice and relaxing on the eardrums. Our Kootenay boys Moontricks pepper this with their instrumental world feel.

Dirtwire just dropped their new album, ‘Blaze.’ I’ve got that posted for you down below as well. It’s chalked full of great vocals, and what these three consider their forte – traditional instrumentation, world percussion, soundscapes, and electronic beats, all nicely strung together to make a really amazing group of tracks.

Enjoy!

Ethereal Moments – Dreamers Delight

Ethereal: intangible, immaterial, relating to regions beyond this beautiful earth; fragile and light in a way that seems to perfect for this world.

Moment: a fleeting second, a brief period of time; in physics moments are defined with respect to a fixed reference point.

Ethereal Moment: an incredible album which captures the fleeting feelings experienced in defined moments where perceive surroundings are larger than life. This album is the soundtrack for those seconds when you feel as though all things are right, all things are perfect, all things seem intangibly inexplicably flawless beyond earth itself.

Dreamers Delight is a Los-Angeles based artist with roots in Denver Colorado. The first few stages of his tunes were released under Lowtemp Records (Gramatik’s label) and he has absolutely blown up since his first national tour kicked off in 2015. This album is INCREDIBLE. It makes you want to be a part of the bigger picture. Shout out to my favorite track off the album Loving You. Make sure you follow this beautiful human on Soundcloud to keep your dreams alive and inspire those fleeting feelings of epicness.

One Love – Whit

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!

Equanimous brings something new and unique to the electronic music scene, creating the most joyous dance floors filled full of bliss.

The fusion of elements from future bass, house and tribal dance music combined with live piano and djembe (rope-tuned skin-covered goblet drum played with bare hands, originally from West Africa) creates a sound that calms the soul and warms the heart. With similar flow to Koan Sound and Phutureprimitive, you can only imagine the vibe that  surrounds the speakers at a Equanimous show.  With beautiful melodies, deep bass, and rhythmic beats, he generates a feel good atmosphere that leaves you with good vibes only!

It was really hard for me to choose which track I was going to post from Equanimous’ page so make sure to check out his other tracks, they all have something rare and amazing about them!
