EXCLUSIVE: Charlie Darker’s Top 5 New Artists

February 8th, 2012 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Guest Mix |

We got a guest mix/post from Charlie Darker. Since featuring Charlie on Best You’ve Never Heard 5, Darker’s following has only increased. I have confirmed that Charlie Darker has a remix he did for Diplo and Don Diablo dropping very soon so you know top DJs are noticing Charlie Darker.

So we were discussing what type of exclusive feature would be best for Charlie to do with us and thought that since he’s a rising DJ in the EDM scene, it would be great to get his take on his five top new artists.

Music. Fashion. Collaboration. The Future of NOW.

So I decided to create a rather unconventional music post today. Get ready to be INSPIRED.

I’ve recently helped some friends of mine launch a clothing line called the  ADAMO Collection. The whole idea behind this company is to provide a platform for rebelliously creative young people to pursue their passions, collaborate with each other, and express themselves freely. As a forward thinking company centered on passion and creativity, we look forward to working with bands, DJs, music blogs, etc!

Needless to say, launching a clothing line sure isn’t easy and 18 hour workdays are not unheard of. In order to stay sane and keep inspiration flowing, we blast music on our sick sound system 24/7. I thought it’d be neat to share some of these tunes with you guys and so I’ve compiled a playlist of some of our most listened to tracks on spotify. I’ve included everything from electronica/dubstep artists like Pendulum, Doctor P, Flux Pavilion, Emancipator, The Glitch Mob, Benny Benassi, and Steve Aoki, to more indie/alternative tracks from bands like The Naked and Famous, The Civil Wars, and M83. I also threw in some Tinie Tempah, Coldplay, and Claude Debussy. I think my favorite track has gotta be Pendulum’s The Island ( Dusk til Dawn remix). SOOO GOOD.

Previous Guest Mix: Zoo Legacy

Guest Mix: Zoo Legacy (mixed by DJ Burnout)

October 2nd, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Before Bigs Exclusive, Daily Mix, Guest Mix, Rock |

Multi-instrumentalist Sam Goss from Canadian Alternative/Hip-Hop band Zoo Legacy decided to grace us with a 9 track mix of alternative rock music. Here’s what he had to say about it:

So the playlist starts off with the fairly chill Cloudlight, a more ambient/atmospheric song which slowly gets the beat going. Radiohead keeps the beat building with The Butcher. The playlist moves from sparse songs to fuller songs and peaks with Zoo Legacy, RHCP, and Hard-Fi, which is a driven by dirty distorted guitar in the chorus. Things taper off with The National, a great song by our friends Sound of Lions, and then finally a nice instrumental by Welder to wrap things up.

Here’s the tracklist for Zoo Legacy’s playlist (DOWNLOAD):

1. Cloudlight – Eskmo
2. The Butcher – Radiohead
3. The Day is Coming – My Morning Jacket
4. All Falls Down – Zoo Legacy
5. Did I Let You Know – Red Hot Chili Peppers
6. Excitement – Hard-Fi
7. Afraid of Everyone – The National
8. 11:44 – Sound of Lions
9. Run – Welder

If you prefer a continuous mix, here’s the 27-minute mix made by DJ Burnout of the songs above.

This is slowly becoming a series for us, so if you got a sick playlist featuring up-and-coming musicians, send it to us at with a brief description of the music.

Guest Mixes by Dave and Carter of Aer

August 5th, 2011 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Guest Mix, Hip-Hop/Rap |

If you’re a frequent Before the Bigs reader, you’ve heard a lot of awesome music coming from up-and-coming hip-hop duo Aer. Their laid-back style is reminiscent of bands like Sublime and Pepper, and they’ve been making some major moves around the blogosphere in the past couple of months. If you haven’t given these guys a chance, check out our posts about their music here.

Right in time for the weekend, Aer, consisting of Dave (pictured left) and Carter (pictured right), gave us a sneak peak into their itunes by each creating chilled-out playlists in honor of the end of summer. Each playlist gives a look into these guys’ influences and what has brought them to create their own mellow style. The playlists are pretty different, but each one is perfect for posting up by a pool, grilling, and enjoying the last few weeks of summer. Check out the playlists after the jump:
