I was just keyed into this 21 year old Philadelphia and NYC talent named Brayton Bowman this morning, but count me in as a fan already. He certainly turned a lot of heads several months back with an incredible cover of Britney classic Baby One More Time, which you can stream below, but now he’s unleashed a powerhouse original named Play Me. Not only is Brayton’s voice incredibly, sultrily smooth, but Play Me also boasts a mesmerizing electronic soundscape that simmers and curls magnificently, thanks to well respected producer MNEK. Hold on to your hats, Brayton Bowman is about to woo plenty of hearts.

Pop Danthology 2013 – Mashup of 68 songs

December 4, 2013

After all the dark, heavy stuff, it’s not a bad idea to finish up for the moment with yet another bright, mellifluous end of year mix that’s making the rounds on the internet today. Earlier, I presented DJ Earworm’s United State of Pop 2013. Now, check out Pop Danthology 2013, which is a far more comprehensive take on the year, though there’s less focus placed on cutting and piece mealing the lyrics and footage to create a working dialogue. It’s a good, fun mix that includes songs that weren’t on the United State of Pop mix. It’s an alternative method of approaching end of year anthology mashups. Enjoy it! Oh yea, head over here for a free mp3 download of the mashup and the whopping song list for the piece. With all thse early December releases, any great pop tunes that come out later this month are out of luck, though I’m glad to see Naughty Boy’s La La La feat. Sam Smith made it on this one despite only dropping a few weeks gao. Again, there is a nice handful of I Heart Moosiq darlings that we’ve been digging for the past year or two or more that have made it big and onto these mashups. Hooray! And hey look, it’s that Ylvis song.

Keeping it in the hip hop arena with this surprise release from Azealia Banks. Her remix of Britney Spear’s Work Bitch is far from just a remix. She raps meticulously for the first two thirds of the track over Will.I.Am’s production before Britney’s vocals finally kick in. I might like it more than the original. In the meantime, Azealia is still slowly working on her next album Fantasea II.

OFFICIAL VID: will.i.am – Scream & Shout ft. Britney Spears

November 29, 2012

Heyhey, that new will.i.am and Britney Spears collaboration is fun and decent! Plus, brand new video just dropped! The will.i.am parts are pretty typical BEP sounding stuff with sick beats, but I’m most impressed by Britney’s part. What’s going on? Did she take a page from Azealia Banks and Santigold? She did! She’s so Azealia, accent and all, especially at the beginning! Yep. I’m pleasantly surprised. No disrespect, but I can’t say the two of them have been putting out the most complex, unique, groundbreaking stuff separate of each other as of late. But this… this is actually… whoa. I kinda like it! 😉 I could do without the perfunctory, throwback “Britney b*tch” quips, though.

Martin Solveig’s mini mix for BBC Radio 1 Annie Mac

June 7, 2012

Here’s a great five minute mini mix Martin Solveig threw together for BBC Radio 1 a short while ago. It’s a banging mix that’ll get you moving and hyped up fa sho. Mr. Solveig’s mix includes the following great artists in order of appearance, all mashed into a wee little few minutes: Franz Ferdinand, Erol Alkan, Gwen Stefani, Martin Solveig, A-Trak, Duck Sauce, Dada Life, Daft Punk, Dragonette, Idoling!!!, TV Noise, The Beatles, Britney Spears, Bingo Players, Skrillex, Wolfgang Gartner, DJ Mehdi, Thomas Bangalter, Knife Party, Madonna, Woodkid, M.I.A., Labrinth, Madeon.  Epic, no? And guess who caught a FEW of those artists at BFD in the Subsonic Tent just a few days ago? *ahem ahem* That’s right, Dragonette and Knife Party KEEEEELED it. The man just finished DJing the MTV Movie Awards, which I caught belated on my DVR the other night. Of course, the people dancing along behind him on the broadcast had headbands on, true to the spirit. Big thanks to DJ Blondie K of FringeSF for sharing the mini mix on a music sharing Facebook group we’re on earlier today, otherwise I might not have noticed this at all. Is it Friday yet? What? No? That’s OK, I have shows every night AGAIN till the weekend so it’s all good. 😉 

oOoOO’s Headphone Highlights session

March 21, 2012

Yes, I’m doing a complete 180 from the last post. oOoOO did an awesome session for Redbull Music Academy Radio. Listen to the dark, choppy, screwy set below along with some description from oOoOO himself. And here’s the description on Redbull Music Academy’s website:

Yeah, okay, we got it – witchhouse was meant to be a joke, so was zombie wave and downtempo crunk. But, mind you, oOoOO is serious business. With a sharp ear for dreamy dark pop melodies, Swishahouse grooves and heavy bass action, Frisco representative oOoOO (just say ‘OH’) caused excitement and awe just as his stage name would suggest. Starting out as a punk band guitar slinger, young Christoph Dexter Greenspan got sucked in by the mysterious impact of early Wu-Tang, and the combination of dirty drum loops and ghostly apparitions stuck with him for good. Fooling around with the screwed & chopped aesthetics of the Dirty Dirty, elements of goth and shoegaze, oOoOO kick-started a proper hype with what was once dubbed “dirge-disco, like Chic on downers”. His self-named debut EP saw the light of day in 2010 on quality imprint Tri Angle where his next release, ‘Our Loving Is Hurting Us’, is in the pipeline for Spring 2012. In this episode of Headphone Highlights, oOoOO deciphers the main influences of his soundtrack for a decelerated youth.

I don’t take witch house as a joke. Perhaps the name of the genre started as a joke, but I have no qualms continuing to call that stuff by this name. I like that name. Sue me.

DJ EARWORM 2011

December 27, 2011

I knew it was about time to check for DJ Earworm’s end of year mix!

Here it is, DJ Earworm’s epic mashup, United State of Pop 2011 (World Go Boom). I love how he always mixes the videos too. So, what do you think? Better than United State of Pop 2010 (which I thought was okay)? How about 2009 (which I thought was absolutely incredible)?

Remember, this is 100% an American perspective only. Enjoy!

Tracklist in alphabetical order based on artist names:

Adele – Rolling In The Deep
Adele – Someone Like You
Black Eyed Peas – Just Can’t Get Enough
Bruno Mars – Grenade
Bruno Mars – The Lazy Song
Britney Spears – Till The World Ends
Cee Lo Green – F* You
Enrique Iglesias – Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You)
Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks
Jennifer Lopez – On The Floor
Jeremih feat. 50 cent – Down On Me
Katy Perry – Firework
Katy Perry – E.T.
Katy Perry – Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)
Lady Gaga – Born This Way
LMFAO – Party Rock Anthem
LMFAO – Sexy and I Know It
Lupe Fiasco – The Show Goes On
Maroon 5 – Moves Like Jagger
Nicki Minaj – Super Bass
OneRepublic – Good Life
Pink – Raise Your Glass
Pitbull – Give Me Everything
Rihanna – S&M
Rihanna – We Found Love

UPDATE: After a few listens, I believe 2009’s was still the best. While very fun and a great showcase, the 2011 mashup seems far less cohesive and far more messy. Outside of this mashup, I think it bespeaks something very good about the year in music in the US though… I believe the top pop songs of 2011 are actually much harder to all mashup together into a mix due to the variety of sounds and genres that were being put forth and embraced. It’s been a great year for music, no doubt. 

Here we go with the end of the year mashups

December 2, 2011

Epic end of the year mashups have been picking up in popularity. DJ Earworm helped to start the trend with his yearly mix, with each year getting better than the previous year for the MOST part. 2010’s mashup was not half as good as 2009’s, since it heavily relied on Ke$ha’s Tik Tok too much and did not have an uplifting message, unlike previous years. 2010’s was all about being immature & drunk and about partying all the time. Well, of course it’s not the time yet for DJ Earworm’s 2011 mix, but here’s Mashup-Germany’s and it does not disappoint. As often the case with these multi track mashups, I love some of the songs utilized, I find some songs overrated (yet perhaps the easiest to mix to), and the end result is a fun chimera of the year. Without further ado, I bring you Top of the Pops 2011 [What the F*ck]!

Mashup-Germany mixing:
Taio Cruz – Hangover
LMFAO – Party Rock Anthem
Adele – Rolling in the deep
David Guetta feat. Usher – Without you
David Guetta feat. Sia – Titanium
Snoop Dog – Sweat
Bruno Mars – Grenade
Avicii – Levels

Jennifer Lopez – On the floor

Britney Spears – Till the world ends
LMFAO – Sexy and I know it
Maroon 5 – Moves like Jagger
David Guetta feat. Flo Rida – Where dem Girls at
Jason Derulo – Don’t wanna go home
Enrique Iglesias – Tonight
