We Only Got – Nvt

Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen to some FRESH NEW glitch. It’s been a while since my last quintessential glitch track, but damn does it feel good. This track was signed to Adapted Records which is based out of Australia, and this artist – Nvt – is from Prague. Although I can’t find much on the World Wide Web I would definitely suggest giving this dude a follow or two as he has 194 followers and deserves about 3000 more, pronto.

Make sure you stretch before you play this track on a good set of speakers.

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.

Young – Vallis Alps (Omnist Remix)

So, this is a remix by Omnist..who is Canadian, and there is literally NOTHING else written on the world wide web about he/she. I cannot wait to hear more done by this artist, and since there is nothing else written about the song I supposed all there is left to do is discuss how this song makes me feel. Beginning with the original- the words and the beat instill this feeling of time passing, of restless souls, of searching for your roots.

“In my hair were winter flowers – And weeks went by but felt like hours”. Thats my favorite line.

This remix adds that flow, those vibes, and the sensation of emotional flux. When I listen I cannot help but imagine what the sky would look like from the bottom of the ocean, glistening and shifting in all it’s sinusoidal glory. As the days fade to night, and the years bring about the change into who we will be, songs like this light the way. Stay tuned with this new Canadian artist by following them on Soundcloud or Facebook. I can only imagine seeing them around our festival scene will become a reality in the next year or two.

Make changes, take risks, enjoy your life, and do NOT waste your youth with materialist endeavors if you can help it.

One Love – Whit

 

Boom F**cking Boom – Fatboy Slim

Oh Fatboy Slim. A legend who has stood the test of time and still knows how to create an amazing party! I will never forget the first time I saw him on Holy Ship Feb 2015. That sail away set made the ship go bonkers. When you hear “I’m on a cruise ship bitch!” the boat went insane! My phone did not stand a chance and was gone right after that! Set the tone for the whole festival! Plus his surprise lobby set will always hands down be the most fun I’ve ever had at a festival. That was some special magic.

One thing Fatboy loves to play is something with a dirty bassline that forces you to move. You can’t help but dance with a massive smile on your face. Boom fucking boom is exactly what you’d be expecting and it’s amazing. Enjoy this booty shaker!

Heres that epic Sailaway set from Holy Ship!

Black Fur / Garden – Elder Island

I’m really excited to share this find. Few artists do this style well, if you like The XX have a listen to Elder Island. I chose 2 tracks to post, both really encompass the emotion and style I primarily keep an ear out for while beat cruising. Katy Sargent’s sensual and calming voice confess lyrics that are enigmatic to mull over. David Harvard and Luke Thorton are the gentlemen completing this powerhouse trio. Their music is a complex blend of organic instrumentals recorded, looped, and stitched together at varying segments along each track. Utilizing guitar, bass, keys, and cello plugged into MPC sampling creates a style that’s difficult to define. While balancing high energy and that intoxicating above the clouds sound that electronica defines, Elder Island is a musical gem exuding funky grooves, enchanting vocals, and sultry synths.

Curious about their name, a quick search revealed Elder Islands is located in the Canadian Artic! A “happy coincidence” says the group from Bristol. But they enjoy the connotation of their music existing as a small remote island.

These 2 tracks exude musical depth that can be tricky to find. At times electronica can sound too layered, too scattered. These 2 are blended so well it’s impossible not to get lost in them. I hope you enjoy these as much as do. Big ups to Elder Island.
