WTH?! Is it my birthday this week or what? Two of my favorite artists dropping new tunes in the same week. First Snowmine and now RAC who by the way collaborated with another fave in Penguin Prison to put out “Hollywood”. RAC is known for their amazing remixes(hence their name) but this here is an original track and it shines just as brightly as their stellar remixes. Penguin Prison’s(Chris Glover) vocals lie atop the perfectly crafted pop beat from RAC to create another party tune for your next playlist or night cruise. Get ready to dance! Then when you’re done and rested download it for free here.
Brooklyn outfit Body Language are lighting up dance floors across the world with their stellar and electric grooves that have been known to cure paralysis. Angelica Bess has the perfect throwback disco sexiness in her voice to kickstart your heart and the boys don’t sound too bad themselves either. They released Speaks ,their EP ,in 2009 and then piggybacked off that to release their full length Social Studies in October of last year. Chock full of numerable and affable hits to please any palate Social Studies is an album to just put on repeat at your next party. Equal parts laid back chill and grooving thrill it’s a can’t miss body pleaser. P.S. fellas, it also works very well in the bedroom if you know what I mean…….Do you? If not email at me email@example.com for full explanation with pictures. The album also has some killer remixes by StarSlinger, Tiger & Woods, Plastic Plates, and Keep Shelley In Athens. I picked a couple of my faves off the album for your ears so go get on your jammies and/or Snuggie and cuddle up to Body Language. I also included a track off the Speaks EP called “Work This City”. When your done jammie-ing head over to their website here to buy their stuff and interact. They are also very talented remix artists in their own right so anytime you see a remix by them jump on it.
London/Manchester trio representing here. The minute I heard this band I was like……WOW! Love, love, love their sound. They released “Ternion”,Latin for a group of three, their second album last week and it is a beautiful leap forward from their first album “WHB” which received critical acclaim. Seemingly the biggest change is the production courtesy of Foals producer Luke Smith that gives them a boost in sound that shines through on every track. Check out the video for “Where Are Your People?” the third track off the album. An electro beauty!
Now since you have been christened let’s take the next step in the relationship with the track “Watertight” a punky electro gem. We Have Band “Watertight”
Time to take the relationship even higher with my fave from the album “Visionary”. A sexy blend of all things sugar and spice and boy does it sound nice!
This is an album to get into your iPod on the double like and one to play………well anywhere and anytime. Buy it here on iTunes and stay connected on their Facebook page.
Hipster Tygra says "I bought copies of Ternion for all of the Thundercats"
Non Tiq is Nora Lindqvist from Northern Sweden. Her viewpoint on music is this- “Music is a weapon. A weapon against the darkness inside of me but also against the loneliness of being a human. Music turns the most boring days into ecstasy trips”. Her sound is poppy but mixed with dark elements. Danceable yet sadness looms. I guess her darkside likes to shake it’s thang once in a while. She was to release an LP called “Lovemachine” this past fall but apparently has run into some snags and is delayed at the moment. Fortunately we have this track along with some great remixes to bide our time for the LP release.
When I first heard this I cried I was so happy…….and then I preceded to play it 14 times in a row and get my cardio dance on. Certain songs just hit you that special way that gets your adrenalin flowing and energy levels maxed. This is in my 5 hour energy mix. Clock Opera is an avant pop group from London who’s debut album will be released early 2012. Julien Plaisir de France is Julien Barthe a french DJ, music producer, remix artist who puts out massive dance floor jams that leave you sweaty and exhausted. Alot of his tunes are also under Plaisir de France. Crank this for your next workout or jog or zumba or tae bo(I think they still have this) or Denise Austin Buns of Steel workout. You will have the steeliest buns indeed!
