As long time fans of NoMBe, the German-born Los Angeles-based musician who’s been taking us on a brilliant journey with the monthly songs off his forthcoming debut album, we have much to celebrate soon. Not only is Noah McBeth making an appearance at SXSW later this month (with a set at our pal We Found New Music’s showcase co-presented by Interscope, details here), but NoMBe has also announced his San Francisco debut, alongside Mansionair, at Popscene at the Rickshaw Stop on April 25th (tickets, here). As if all this welcome news hasn’t already left us delirious with excitement, NoMBe has teamed up with Brooklyn electro/alt project Big Data on a fresh new tune, too! You never know quite what to expect when a NoMBe track crops up. He’s given us woozy intoxicating soul tracks, alt R&B infused jams, and a plethora of everything in between. On Drama, NoMBe and Big Data gives us torrid strumming, funky strutting electro soul, and it leaves us ever the more ravenous for debut album They Might’ve Even Loved Me, arriving March 23rd on TH3RD BRAIN Records. Each song on the album tells a different story about the women who have shaped NoMBe’s life, from his godmother, Chaka Khan, to high school crushes, summer flings, his girlfriend, and his mother. Through NoMBe’s music, we vicariously experience love, intimacy, sex, heartbreak, and euphoria, and we find ourselves relating to it all through our own personal heartaches and joys, too. Drama is a muggy sweltering, smooth gliding meditation on romantic turmoil. The single is available, here.

It must be heaven on earth when musical acts like RAC and Big Data join forces to drop a covers EP together. The two track EP includes a cover of RAC”s Let Go, originally featuring MNDR and Kele, by Big Data. Let Go is easily a favorite of mine by RAC these past two years. Big Data offers up a cover that features Lizy Ryan, and they give the track ab alt flavored, mid tempo turn around that reminds me of early, bobbing Foster The People with some Phoenix styled guitars. In return, RAC covered Big Data’s hit tune, Dangerous. The RAC version features Pink Feathers, and it takes on a darker, more meditative air. Stream Dangerous below. The two track cover exchange EP is wittily titled Fair Trade, and it’s out today. Big Data joins RAC on a large portion of his tour dates in the US through the end of this month.

So, I have something to confess. I’ve been enjoying Big Data’s new album 2.0 so much that I’m having a hard time retiring it from my disc rotation. I want to keep it in there as my jolt of thrilling energy. The album is chock full of amazing guest features, including a track titled The Business Of Emotion, which features none other than White Sea, or Morgan Kibby from M83. NYC electronic act Lefti, who last gave us a wicked AVAN LAVA remix, returns with a remix of this exact tune, giving it a bumping makeover perfect for those of us who can’t resist electro disco bangers. Throw this one on loud, and keep it flowing with some Justice. Your friends will love you.

Big Data’s new album 2.0 drops on March 24th via Warner Brothers, and it features some mad awesome collaborations. While they recently revaeled Snowed In, featuring River Cuomo of Weezer, their latest unveiling is a raucous, rollicking song named Get Some Freedom, featuring Toronto electropop sweetheart Dragonette. This one’s a powerhouse alt pop meets synthrock growler, full of fire and intensity. It’s the kind of song you’d imagine played with much gusto at sports games and school rallies.

I’ve been such a fan of New York electropop act Big Data since the moment I heard his Joywave collaboration Dangerous, a song so infectious that I immediately decided it was a must for my camp’s Burning Man playlist soon afterwards. The producer’s latest is one of his heaviest hitting electro tracks yet, plus Snowed In features none other than Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo! It’s a very surprising union, and River’s voice unexpectedly works very well with Big Data’s thrilling, vibrant electronic production. If this is what being snowed in is like (hey, I’m from California), wow, I need to get out to the East Coast more often. Snowed In is off Big Data’s new album 2.0, out March 24th via Warner Bros.

It feels like I’ve been loving New York electropop act Big Data’s Dangerous for such a long time, and I’ll continue doing so for a long time to come, but there’s certainly cause for celebration now that Big Data has dropped a new one. Plus, The Business Of Emotion features White Sea, aka Morgan Kibby (also of M83)! The Business Of Emotion is a thundering, crashing, and high soaring electronic pop extravaganza, full of endless energy and massive hooks. I’m also quite tickled by the Facebook jabbing artwork for the single.

It’s no secret that I’ve been a tremendous fan of New York electropop act Big Data’s Dangerous for over a year now. It’s just such a catchy Hot Chip-esque electronic pop song, and it’s definitely picked up a ton of fans as this year progressed. Imagine my delight when I saw that the latest official remix of the track is by Sebu, who you might recognize as the supremely bearded dude from Capital Cities. His version of Dangerous is an uptempo, extra energetic and frenzied update. There is certainly some recognizable Capital Cities like production on the track. Sebu also happens to be the member of Capital Cities that I’ve had the most contact with over the past several years, at the endless number of live shows at small clubs that I attended to jump and sing along with Capital Cities. In fact, when IHM was a wee little itty bitty blog, Sebu’s wife reached out to me via email. So, if you charming folks are still paying even an inkling of attention to this little blog, hi and you rock!

I’m extremely glad that New York electropop act Big Data’s tune Dangerous has received some well deserved attention. After all, I only heaped an epic amount of praise on that tune since I heard it over a year ago. The catchy synthpop track has been remixed now, by Los Angeles duo Oliver, who only recently gave us their sick original Light Years Away. They infuse Dangerous with plenty of that techy, bass heavy intensity and a dash of disco smoothness, which is fully intoxicating.
