Thank You Thursday #2 – Thanksgiving Edition

November 28th, 2013 by | Alternative/Indie, Electronic Dance Music, House, Music Video, New Wave, Pop, Rock |

It’s Thanksgiving (or close to it… hey we all got things to do!) and it wouldn’t be right to not give a quick THANK YOU to some dope ass artists that have done some dope ass shit this year.  To keep it nice and concise I’m just gonna touch on one dope thing they did that was original and/or creative and/or unique and/or interesting.  If you don’t know what this is or why I do it please go here for a quick explanation.

Noir x Lomez x Atnarko – Lost Again (Feat. Symbol)

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Is pretty much all I can say. This shit is so damn sexy and cool and right it kinda hurts.  Production, Melody, Composition, bass chord progression, lyrics, etc. Not to mention it has that new wave vibe to it that I have always absolutely love.  One of the best parts of the song is the very tasteful bridge that comes in and introduces a whole new section of the song and it kinda almost takes off (if that makes any sense) at 2:55. Pretty cool that Pete Tong made this an Essential New Tune also. Thankful to have worked with Symbol in the past. Great shit has been made here.

Walking Shapes – Keep

The whole video is ridiculously well shot and the song is amazingly well written.  The first thing (along with many) that struck me as impressive was the whole Indie aesthetic of the video to go with the indie-rock song. Nate HoHo (lead singer/front man in the video) had a stellar performance coupled in with the tasteful nudity that was 100% well placed all made sense.  Great pay off at the end too. Dude is a visionary. Much respect, THANK YOU! slightly NSFW

Pre10d *Full Album*

16 minutes for a whole album? Yes, I could take a few lessons in this. Thank you for showing me that a short and concise album can be done and effective. Interesting beats, direct (and indirect) lyrics at times that actually are saying a lot (and nothing) all at the same time. Got a dope track with him and LAZERlibby coming out in 2014. THANK YOU!

Carolyn Malachi – Finally
Love this lyrics video & song. Love the over the top dramatic facial features of every word. Love her whole brand packaging.  THANK YOU!

Lazerbitch – Bass Goes Boom [Feat. Symbol]
Music don’t always gotta be so cereal, right?! Great Beat, Great Rhymes, Great Hook. But the video… very very well done with very minimal resources. The strip club shots were all pro looking. NSFW?! maybe. 100% dope though. THANK YOU!

The Knux & Kid Cudi – Run

July 1st, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, Rock |

Kid Cudi & The Knux, yes please! After seeing a nearly amazing performance by Cudders last week at Nokia Theatre in LA, I’m super pumped for new music from him, even though I think it will be hard for him to top his debut album.

I digress, here’s The Knux‘s “Run” featuring Kid Cudi. Love the whole rock/pop band instrumentals, I was on the fence with the vocals in the beginning but once Cudder’s came on I actually liked the change of pace in the vocals. Kid Cudi displayed a little rap but looks like he’s ready for a rock album. I sure hope so.

Anyways this song is off The Knux upcoming album, Eraser, due out in September.

Bonus: Here’s a Kid Cudi “Day and Night” remix by Lunice. The remix isn’t too complex and not a ton of work done on the vocals. But with a Kid Cudi remix, you either do subtle remix or complex remix like Kill Them With Colour on “Symphonies“.

King Fantastic – “Bonfire Sessions”

April 22nd, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Rock |

King Fantastic is back with a new hip-hop/rock influenced track and it’s a good one. It’s called “Bonfire Sessions” and is the ultimate smoking track. It add versatility with the great rapping over some catchy and relaxed rock instrumentals. I love this track a lot and I am sure you all will as well. Enjoy!
