Everyone’s going mad for ‘Fuck Up The Fun’ today by Azealia Banks. It’s a two for one bonanza from not only Miss B but it’s also been produced by Diplo. I always wondered what it would be like to stick my head in a tumble dryer and this is probably like it. Thunderous beats of...
Madeon is at it again. Fresh off the back of a a ‘mad’ week in Austin for SXSW, Madeon has put in some outstanding remix work for Martin Solveig’s track ‘The Night Out’.
Well, this is one of our first posts ‘post’ SXSW Austin and we’re getting back on track on the good old tunes that should be brought to your attention. Saying that though, this is being written poolside at a luxury Cancun Mexico resort to recover from Austin….believe you and me…recovery is needed.
What a week it is turning out to be. We caught Grimes at the Live From The Loft ‘Google Play and YouTube’ stage yesterday to catch an up and coming star. We had high hopes for this one and it did not disappoint.
We’ve wanted to catch the mighty Penguin Prison live for sometime now since discovering them with their awesome tunes and amazing album. When the chance came along to get to catch them at SXSW at the Hard Rock Hotels ‘Sound of Your Stay’ Music Lounge, we took it!!!
Well, as they say, if you don’t shoot you don’t score!!! That was our motto when we were notified we won a ballot/ticket to catch the SXSW performance of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. What a SXSW it has been.
When you are at SXSW, fate plays a glorious part in getting to some awesome gigs. A classic example of this was last night when we ‘attempted’ to get into the Hype Machine Hotel gig last night for Miike Snow and Madeon and bypassed to Crystal Fighters instead.
Fresh from the files of Ricki-Lee and Fred Falke comes an awesome track ‘Do It Like That’ but tinkered with the hands and magic touch of joy by Fred Falke. It’s a club remix that is going to bring the house down!!!
Far out…..it’s not often you get to sit in a lounge right next to the band playing your favourite songs. It’s all very live in your lounge here courtesy of Giant Noise and the Hard Rock Hotels ‘Sound Of Your Stay Live’ venue in Austin with The Kaiser Chiefs playing it live and loud!!!!
It’s probably no coincidence that every track and every tune that is massive online at the moment is also being mixed, produced and played be the majority of artists and DJs hitting SXSW at the moment. Dillon Francis has dropped a massive mix Clockwork – Hulk (Dillon Francis Remix). Huge!!!
If we can stay awake until 3am tonight (tomorrow morning) we’re going to be partying hard to DJ R3HAB!!! If not, we’ll be parting hard to DJ R3HAB at another point at SXSW!!!
It was a hard day in the office today. We’ve just caught Alabama Shakes live on stage at SXSW and they were mightily special.
Check out this quite awesome remix by RAC. No more words, just listen!!!!…..apart from we’re going to catch RAC’s DJ set at SXSW NoiseTrade press day tomorrow, so we’ll definitely report back on that one.
Well, if the US didn’t know about BBC Sounds of 2012 winner Michael Kiwanuka, they do now. I’m typing this up at The Austin Convention Centre and the dreamy vocal honey talents of Mr. Kiwanuka are drifting in the air tonight.
