Video: Aeroplane & Purple Disco Machine ft. Aloe Blacc – “Counting On Me” *dance

May 13th, 2017 by | Dance, Disco, Electropop, House, Music Video |

Aeroplane Purple Disco Machine got the smooth voice of one of my favorite contemporary singers, Aloe Blacc, as well as a gospel chorus for their latest dance release, “Counting On Me”. This infectious dance track is just what’s needed to turn your party into a dance party and it makes you want to move! It’s a soulful upbeat dance track that reminds me of Disclosure.

Watch: Speelburg – “Pulse Of A Million” *alternative psychedelic pop

March 16th, 2017 by | Alternative/Indie, Dance, Electronic Rock, Electropop, Hidden Gem, Music Video, Pop |

When I first heard this song, I thought it was weird yet grabbed me because of its upbeat nature and I like the alternative, almost psychedelic vibes with uplifting lyrical content. Speelburg is intriguing, cool, strange, awesome and exciting! I really want to hear more from them and catch Speelburg (real name Noah Sacré) live!

Stream “Leila” below which has this upbeat disco vibe that is a lot of

“Leila” is the first song released from Miami Horror‘s new conceptual release The Shapes – a unique 5 track release that has Miami Horror step out of their comfort zone. The Shapes combines upbeat percussive grooves, with experimental vocal styles that echo Talking Heads and other post-new wave groups of the 80s.

In conjunction with the EP’s release, Miami Horror are working closely with visual artists that have inspired their music such as Erin Garcia, Spenceroni, Lynnie Zulu & Annukil, as well as Argentinian and South African artists John Mccam & Sebatian Borkenhagen.

I can’t wait to hear the rest of The Shapes and give you guys a thorough review of the 5-track EP, I love everything Miami Horror does and this continues their vibrant electric vibe they bring to their music.

PNAU – Chameleon *Empire of the Sun side project release

November 9th, 2016 by | Dance, Electro, Electropop, Music Video |

“Chameleon” is the first single from acclaimed electronic act PNAU in over four years and it’s a fun electro pop track. Constantly inspired by the emotional weight of our world, “Chameleon” is spiritually anchored in the medicinal plant culture of the Peruvian Amazon and laced with all the energy we expect of the Australian outfit comprised of Nick Littlemore, Peter Mayes and newest member Sam Littlemore.

Not shy of output over the last 12 months, Nick Littlemore has dropped new Empire Of The Sun material (also produced by Mayes), a White Shadows EP (Nick and Sam Littlemore’s project with The Vines’ Craig Nicholls) as well as a forthcoming ambient collaboration with Celia Pavey, aka Vera Blue, all of which provide a true picture of PNAU’s expanding interest, influence and creative energy. Sam Littlemore (multi-ARIA Award-winning super producer) joins the inseparable duo of Nick and Peter to bring a wealth of new material into fruition. Having been involved as producer for their 2007 self-titled album, Sam is an integral part of PNAU, all genetics aside. The single “Chameleon” also welcomes the addition of Shakira Marshall, previously a dancer and back-up singer for Ms. Lauryn Hill on vocals bringing a new and electrifying layer to the band’s vision for 2016.

Watch the music video for PNAU’s “Chameleon” below.
