An Ode To Erykah Badu. Tereza pres. Baduology [Mixtape]

Tereza with a nice tribute to Erykah Badu in celebration of her Birthday and the 20th anniversary of her outstanding debut Album ‘Baduizm’. Fine wine of a mix and i like the exclusive remixes within, but i’m missing the Free Download Button here.

BADUOLOGY is my personal ode to the ‘analogue girl in the digital world’ in celebration of the 20th anniversary of her debut album ‘Baduizm’ which is still one of my all-time-favorite LPs. It features some of Queen E’s most significant work from the past two decades, alongside songs sampled on Badu records as well as unique skits and blends, all edited and mixed by myself.

The most special thing about it? It contains 14 exclusive contributions from some of my favorite producers / vocalists! S/o Bluestaeb // Brenk Sinatra // Dexter // Duktus // IAMNOBODI // Kabuki // Klimeks // Luka // Masego // Noah Slee // Serious Klein // S.Fidelity // Silkersoft // Thallus

SAVAGE AF ::: Xloxlyp & Flamongo & Hartry “Drifting”

Savage af !

Brilliant little gem here. Really caught my attention the 3rd or 4th time i heard it. As simple as it is, this is a super welcome change of pace, even though using the commonly featured elements known from current and past trap & future bass tracks, it has something very organic and juicy about it. Really hard for me to put my finger on, even though describing music, one is always super tempted to point towards the gracious tender vocals or the uber awesome production. None of that really applies, even though i am super digging the arrangement and the way her vocals just drift (no pun) and glide across the simple but super effective beat. Gosh i actually love the vocals. While everybody’s going the Chainsmokers route and/or the super played Future Bass approach. This track is not jumping on the bandwagon. Ps watch it work on the dance floor, it has that raw gritty element that all those lip gloss future bass tracks are missing, while it still sounds super easy on the ear. You can tell i dig this tune — mucho. And what i think strikes a chord with me is that it’s the perfect balance between Macho Man Randy Savage & Miss Elizabeth —> Savage af

Currently my favourite tune when playing action packed games! This track gets my full stoned gamer state of mind approval & certificate. According to iTunes i listened to “Drifting” 69 times last Saturday while revisiting Arkham City. kek

ps i really hope you guys have more tracks like this in the works, you need to feed the hunger ;)

Add it to your Spotify and put it on repeat!

Stalking Gia – Second Nature (HtPkt Remix)

via GIPHY

Ha! Second nature – second brilliant track by HtPkt up on the blog within a few weeks. His collaboration with Ninski and Bri Tolani (chek it out here) is still running on repeat and we can’t wait to add even more of his tracks to our playlist. Such a pleasure to watch all the great talents growing and defining their style by releasing one track/remix after the other! Weekend is close, get ready for it with this one :)

Mark Morrison – Return Of The Mack (Seeb Remix)

I never thought i’d listen to the track again. Return of the mack was just played out & over abused by remixers for the last 15 years. So surprise, here’s a solid remix released by my buddies at TVG. Scandinavian prod unit Seeb delivers a good remix of the classic Morrison track and i guess it’ll pop up at least on a few floors and playlists.

This track keeps running on repeat! Ninski & HtPkt – Running (ft. Bri Tolani)

Here’s one more story to show how blessed I am in having a job like this here. Of course from time to time you feel like you have no enthusiasm at all, no connection to the things you do daily, or the days are just grey, grey, grey…  and it feels like your goals will never be achieved.  Mostly right at that point is where I can’t ignore my own thoughts that get bigger and louder asking for other adventures, questioning my daily being, judging myself for not looking deeper and being afraid of the passing of time. Right at this exact point along comes a song like this. A song that reminds you directly of your true path. To listen and support other people. That’s what i do best and what i enjoy the most. I want to thank our close friend wolfskind for introducing us to Ninski with his excellent Remix for wolfskind’s ‘Stone Cold Thriller‘ . So this one here is already his second release on Tanz Dich Glücklich – keep up the good work young jedi! …and thank you for showing us the bright sight of life with this collabo tune :)

HtPkt’s original Running was already a song we had on our radar, but before we could even flinch, this remix shows up by the two of them. I think the future has great things in mind for these two craftsmen, who are still both experimenting in many waters it seems, but at this early stage already show some serious talent. And not to forget Bri Tolani with her beautiful floating vocal tones and emotionally charged intonations. Her work ethic and dedication will sooner or later pay off big time. And i can tell that she is busy hardworking one, bc we just did another song with her. A somehow weird and bizarre, but super danceable Ace Of Base Cover, and Bri’s work ethic was superb. It’s always perseverance that makes the difference between failure and success, between losing and winning. In any case this track, and all three protagonists are a WIN!

ps not to be misogynistic here we are in the right order ;)

YUM YUM Top Tunes Continues | 2/17

1484109733256

It has been a long time! And starting right now we are back with our monthly YUM YUM Top Tunes!

Much has changed, the world has gotten even madder than before, a lot of cry babies left & right, and since we are so knee-deep in math at the moment and super involved in making, curating and diffusing music, we thought it would be the perfect time to bring back our YUM YUM Top Tunes. The Top Tunes have been running for a decade, until we stopped in ’12 or ’13, ever since Obama installed that immigration ban on Iraqis & Cubans. I don’t even really remember, but they have been an inspiration to many folks throughout the years, so we’ll have it up on the blog every 1st Friday of the month + an according Spotify Playlist, since you folks are all ‘super digitally on fleek” these days. Russian Hacker style!

The political compass is changing and i mean literally shapeshifting, like never seen before and conspiracy theories are being proven right by the dozen. So here’s this months Fake News Soundtrack to accompany you into La-la Land while the media tries to brainwash you MK Ultra Style with another Moloch loving plastic artist – to keep you forever trapped and bubbling in your bubbly mood bubble. So hop aboard the Soul Train and enjoy this months ride aaaaand….

Ps After much research has been conducted we can now scientifically prove that Facebook is cancer!

Follow the YUM YUM Top Tunes on Spotify. At least Spotify was built by the guy who invented U-Torrent, so it still has a distant scent of un peu de piratique! Here is a button, so click the button and follow the button. Cause you know how to push a button, you beautiful digital Wunderkind!
