EVENT PREVIEW: PillowTalk & No Regular Play Bring Live Performances to Verboten [Brooklyn, NY]

A couple of my favorite electronic music acts are coming to Brooklyn this Friday. I’ll be quite honest when I say that Crew Love is the true love, so when any of the Wolf + Lamb / Soul Clap cats get together, you know it’s going to be a lovefest.

I discovered the jazz-influenced No Regular Play at Electric Forest last year, and regard them as my favorite new act of that festival. The trumpet-infused house music brings alive a very unique vibe that is removed from club culture, currently. It keeps things fun and vibrant, and in an urban wasteland like Brooklyn, that’s a nice escape.

NEW MUSIC: Kianu – Silky (Prod. Waz) [Smooth Hip-Hop, Free Download]

If you’re like me, you love 90s hip-hop and long for silky production with a smooth voice kickin’ rhymes. The pun wasn’t originally intended, but “Silky” is just that… Kianu, a rising rapper from Harrisburg, PA, has ties with Exmag and the Lowtemp crew, and is featured on Exmag’s album Proportions [added as a bonus]. Peep the song below and give it a DL.

NEW MUSIC: Seekae – Test & Recognize [Indie, Electronic, House]

 

I wasn’t a big fan of Flume’s “Tennis Courts” remix, both because I’m not a big fan of Lorde and I thought it was almost the same thing as his disclosure remix.

I am happy to see a return to (what I believe is) really dope material with his latest re-work of Seekae’s “Test & Recognize.”

I was even happier to check out the original and another remix by a gent named HWLS to find out that I can listen to variations of this song for what is going on 30 minutes now.

Here’s all the versions I’m diggin’…

NEW MUSIC: SBTRKT – New Dorp, New York Ft. Ezra Koening [Electronic, Experimental]

If you’ve been following SBTRKT on Twitter, you would know that Aaron Jones just dropped some major news.

SBTRKT has announced his new album, Wonder Where We Land.  Also released, is this semi creepy, super vague teaser trailer for the album that you can watch here.

And what would be a new album release news if it wasn’t accompanied a new single! Check out this new track called “New Dorp, New York” featuring vocals from Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koening; which was featured today on BBC Radio 1. Seriously digging the vocals of Ezra with the classic SBTRKT beat. This song will definitely get you moving from the dorps to the metropolises.

NEW MUSIC: Viceroy – The Life feat. Penguin Prison [Summertime Pool Music]

Viceroy is back with another upbeat summer style track. His sound cloud categorizing would describe it as the “summertime all the time” genre. He teamed up with Penguin Prison for a great upbeat track that is sure to make you feel livley and most likely increase your desires to have a pool party. Grab your sunglasses and press play!

You can count on the Majestic Casual channel to upload some fuego tunes every now and again without fail. This one caught my attention the other day and I’ve had it in rotation the past few days. Some smooth soulful vocals mixed with that deep house style and a little nu disco mixes together seamlessly for a fantastic track. Check it out for yourself.

Sprocket Played The Craziest Phish After Party

Only an image this fuzzy is appropriate for a post-Phish Sprocket show article…

Brooklyn’s Sprocket played what must have been New York’s craziest Phish after party after the Saturday gig. A packed out Spin in Manhattan was an essential pit stop on the way home from Randall’s Island as the quartet raged through their best set yet.

To those who may not be familiar, Sprocket is a Brooklyn jam band who is highly influenced by the likes of Phish.

We look up to Phish as paving the path that we ultimately want to travel down, so seeing them do what they do so well, and in our own backyard, is always an inspiring,” said bassists Dan Haller.
