Trust Feat. Cintia Lund by The Golden Pony

static1.squarespace

Big tune alert! The Golden Pony have been frequent flyers on this blog and we appreciated many of their remixes, but this track is a universe in itself with all its many details that make up a this delicate clockwerk. Had Trust on repeat for a long, long time, and i actually enjoyed that it didn’t demand anything from me, meaning it didn’t try to hype me up or give me some kind of over exaggerated sense of deepness or sadness. So the craftmanship speaks for itself instead of trying to build on some phony emotions which songs so often do these days. Welcome aboard my Main Playlist!

Golden Pony about their track:

“This track was written on a cold and rainy November day in Brooklyn. It came out feeling a bit dark, maybe the result of the weather and feeling trapped inside, but ultimately it was written with the idea of having absolute “trust” in the person you are with.” Well i trust you guys will come up with even more golden material and i also trust this song can go places, but it’s one of those slow burners… and that is a good thing!

New Kid on the Block: Vibin’ by Fluxkid

nikita-tikhomirov-samo-ps1

I guess this is what the Native Tongues would sound like if they were coming out today. Doesn’t this sound just like a solid classic De La Soul track? Love it! I honestly like this instrumental track a lot and it just throws up the question why todays rappers do not jump on tracks with this kind of vibe, it would give hip hop that much deserved push and i can just hear Joes Bada$$ going off on a track like Vibin’. Fine state of the art production with a bit over the top synths, that could be a bit toned down, but with the whole percussive part to back it up, it just rolls on and on and works somehow. So we salute 20y old Fluxkid from Berlin/Warsaw, the new kid on the block and we are really curious what kind of material he will come up with next!

The press release reads like this: “Vibin’is a cross-genre mixture of influences ranging from synth-pop to hiphop and future bass. Its very rhythmic, drum-driven composition opposed to smooth, soft and melodic synths creates a dynamic combination which fits both a dance floor and a more laid back context. This contrast between mellow verses and powerful chorus gives the track an extraordinary energy that will draw you deep into its warm, summer vibe. The mix of different elements and genres sounds like Mura Masa and Flume combined into one song that every fan of electronic music has been waiting for. You can easily lose yourself to the vibe of this track!” — I fully Agree!

LIT AF! : Tongue Tied (Ft. Bri Tolani) by The Highrollers

follakzoid_interior_wallpaper_1440p

Can the real squatting slavs please stand up!

Bomb track by the Highrollers feat our favourite femvox atm : Miss Bri Tolani. The song has some kind of EDM feel to it, you know like Pretty Lights, Kill Paris, Gramatik or Griz, but i think that’s just the feel of the drums, other than that the overall style is much fresher and best described as a brassy future bass tune. The rest is a hit pop song with a savage eastern european / slavic lick  that makes you want to join the squatting crew, and live every moment in track suits with an orthodox christian gold chain. Russian Hackers at work!

Very welcome tune by the Highrollers, just came out this weekend and already their most successful song! Whatever you guys are doing different now, this seems to be the way to go!

About : The Highrollers is a project started in mid 2016 by Adam Oh (22 years old) and William Oh (15 years old). Their first release was a remix of Marshmello’s Alone which accumulated 80k plays on Soundcloud. After that release they were noticed by several taste makers and with these new links established they went on to co-release a remix of Zara Larsson and MNEK’s – Never Forget You on Chill City and reworked a cover of Radiohead’s Creep with Ember Island and co-released with Future City. Now with a few remixes under their belt, they started making more original work.

So what kind of slav are you?

So Much THIS! Cupidon – Be The One (feat. Tierra)

Be. the. One.

Tired of soul music yet? One of our very own boys, Shoyu, and his partner Golow, who is a super nice & talented fellow, laid down this soulfull gem of track, completely ignoring the standard arrangement patterns of today and going more for an intuitive flow of the prevailing vibe, beautifully laid down by the minimalist instrumentation and Tierras super sexy vocals. So if you think Kaytranada is the shiat, this will surely please you, and if you liked soulful loft music of the mid to late 80s, which has survived up until today through each new generation transporting the vibe and the originals in their dj sets and productions —> this one is most def for you. And since this is their very first effort and they have just set up their socials last Thursday, while they were already trending for a full week on Spotify USA’s & Canada’s Viral Chart and many more playlists, i am super curious to see where the path will lead these two young guns. Welcome gents, you are much appreciated in the world of music! Just the way i like my spicy cereal!

Label Track Info : “Be The One” is Cupidons first release as a duo. For this vibrant track they also teamed up with American singer Tierra Wilson. “Be The One” has the perfect mixture of contemporary laid back electronic pop tune with a smooth r&b touch – a song for long roadtrips into the sunset or staying indoors with a fine glass of wine while exploring the couch. Quality music for quality moments.

YUM YUM Top Tunes | March/17

The old world’s gone mad, not many things that will keep us sane, and surely it won’t be music but maybe it can at least be what it’s originally intended for – maybe it can soundtrack your daily shitposting. And surely it won’t be any celebs illuminating our minds, be it musicians or the self-righteous Hollywood elite with their double standards, who are constantly chakra-fucking the masses with their moral superiority. Pretty easy to preach down when you are a filthy rich millionaire and are so out of touch with reality, that you are actually doing the very same thing that you are condemning. So last month the oscars happened and a couple of other things that generations before us cared about and that used to be big in the last century – you probably forget it already while facebook is napalming your perception of reality & yourself perpetually. It’s nice to see it all fade out and funny to monitor social media’s censorship and super entertaining to dive into different social media demographics & age groups, that have such a clearer and better view of reality. “They live (1986)” was a documentary!

Ps parts of Paris have been burning for a full month now.

The same blindness applies to us, the well-connected, globalized, urban, cultural elitists. We live a somewhat privileged, well isolated life and can always escape situations that make us feel uncomfortable or are even dangerous, but that is only the flight or fight part of our brain at work. As well as making continuous decisions on non-critical thinking, but based on empathy/ sympathy. I think my generation is almost completely lost, but that’s not so bad bc the children truly are the future and they are not ready to carry our self imposed ideological cross, that was actually nothing more but a ghetto for our minds, any further. It was a way to keep the useful idiots brainbugged and struggling for the opposite and entirely deceitful purpose. But instead of riding the spice merchant horse any further, let us get into our super-dank monthly top tunes, and if you happen to not like a tune, it must be the Russian Hackers again…. reeeeeeeee
