There is an unending stream of amazing music crafted by incredibly talented producers these days, but partially due to the sheer amount our digital age now gives us access to, and partially due to how similar some songs can sound due to current trends, a lot of it tends to get lost after the initial buzz, forgotten in the music wastelands. The moment I listened to American producer Bobby Nourmand’s song B E C A U S E, I knew this would not be the case for his music. Upon exploring into some of Bobby’s other offerings, it’s obvious he has a very unique sound that blends classic influences with modern deep house magic. On B E C A U S E, Bobby Nourmand lays down his track creating skills by utilizing The Beatles’ classic hit Because. The end result is a song that, though entrancing deep house, is really more of a psychedelic, experimental electronic tune, melding the minor key flourishes of The Beatles with a haunting, enchanting soundscape fleshed out with mysterious drums and bewitching instrumentation. Is this Tame Impala or Jagwar Ma, but on the more abstract end of things? It could very well be! I literally felt chills running down my spine, in the most sublime way, when I first listened to B E C A U S E. For another Bobby Nourmand must, stream his The Sound below. I love Simon & Garfunkel, in particular their classic hit The Sound Of Silence, and the ghostly, atmospheric turn Bobby does on the song will stay and resonate within me for all time to come.

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. 😉
