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

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 ;)

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….
