Petals of Spain – “Lady Luck”

September 5th, 2011 by | Pop, Rock |

Evening audiophiles, I have a fresh new sound out of Denver, Colorado for you tonight. Some of you might have heard the band Air Dubai from a previous post here on BtB. The trumpet player from Air Dubai happens to be in another awesome band. That band is called, Petals of Spain and have a really good sound. This song “Lady Luck” comes in with an upbeat jazz-rock that mixes the class of a purist with a modern twist, and it does not disappoint.

Black Prez – Teach Me How To Dubby *freestyling on a mashup

August 22nd, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Mashup, Mashup Monday |

Black Prez has been around the Denver rap scene since before Obama was elected to office. He has always been a good rapper but he only keeps getting better. Recently he has done some interesting remixes and mash-ups.

Check out his latest, “Teach Me How To Dubby”, where he raps over a mash up of Cali Swag District‘s “Teach Me How to Dougie” and Bassnectar‘s “Basshead”.  Its two songs I couldn’t get enough of combined and revamped so I can relive the obsession all over again.

Flashlights – Hidden Behind Trees EP

August 12th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Ambient, Dance |

A lot of bands seem to be riding the “chillwave” these days, but I’m okay with it. I’ll take all the warm and fuzzy synth music I can get.

Flashlights are an experimental electronic/chillwave group from Denver, CO. Their second EP, Hidden Behind Trees was just released and can be streamed at the group’s bandcamp page. Each of the five tracks on this EP are seductive yet ambient.  Listening to these tracks is like being lulled into a body-encompassing dance. Flashlights are just the right amount of upper and just the right amount of downer.  Pretty chill and pretty fun!

Here’s a Lust remix to the song “New Hampshire”.

Check them out on their upcoming West Coast tour.

James Egbert – Isle of Capri

July 14th, 2011 by | Dance, House, Techno |

Shouts to ThisSongIsSick for promoting James Egbert, a sick producer out of Denver. He deserves all the accolades he’s been getting throughout the blogosphere. His latest single “Isle of Capri” is a full-on electronic dance party and this dude has serious skills. He drops eargasmic sounds as he builds the track up to a huge crescendo…and BOOM. The drop is massive. ThisSongIsSick compares Mr. Egbert to Porter Robinson, which I think is a great comparison. There’s some house, whomps, and funky synth beats. He combines all of the subgenres of techno into a great, original style, and absolutely kills the track. There’s also a tropical vibe to the whole song, which is what I imagine I beach party in Ibiza sounds like.

Follow Mr. Egbert on Twitter, and if you’re in Colorado, get to Global Dance Fest this weekend a little early and watch this dude open up the main stage on Friday.

Hidden Gem: The Chain Gang of 1974

June 21st, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Dance, Hidden Gem |

The Chain Gang of 1974 is a electronic/punk/pop band based out of Denver. I’m usually on the fence with them, meaning some tracks I like, while others I’m not interested in.

Today TCG 1974 (solid acronym right?) released The Wayward Fire, an album I think displays interesting sound that has a base in electronica with influences in 80’s pop, punk, and uses some cool synths. Overall I’m loving the instrumentals and the vocals are alright depending on who you ask. This is definitely an album worth checking out on iTunes. Here’s a couple of my favorites from the album.
The Chain Gang of 1974 – STOP!
The Chain Gang of 1974 – Matter of Time

Shout out to Hunter Reece for telling me about Air Dubai. After hearing “Soul & Body”, I immediately searched for all their music. What I found is a genre-blending music group out of Colorado that has already become my favorite genre-blending band from Colorado (MTHDS a super-close 2nd).

There’s tons of songs I love by Air Dubai so I will give you my favorite original songs and if you like them, will give you my favorite remixes to songs by them.
