In case you missed it, deadmau5 mentioned someone who let a half-baked old school melody of his drip out onto YouTube. This is one of those tracks that made you fall in love with Joel. The ebb and flow of the synth is irrepressible. A track like this reminds us of what Strobe & I Remember used to do when they hit sets across North America. This is a reminder of an earlier time, one where Big Room wasn’t the unassailable behemoth it is, and Martin Garrix was still in…elementary school? Put this track in your face and let it bring you back to a less ADHD world, i.e. one where Joel isn’t stressed. It’s a great one, and one I’d love to see more often. (via EDMTunes)
Blank on Blank continues to be one of the best aspects of PBS Digital Studios on Youtube. Master Bowie talks about the difficulty in writing for himself, but the ease with which he can write for a persona he creates. It’s kind of stunning how spot on he is, but for any fan of Bowie, his genius and consistency, ability to let things go when they need to, and continued evolution over the years come as no surprise. Enjoy the video and get to work on your own Ziggy.
I really like the idea of lots of small leaders, giving the people what they need where they are. Instead of these vast hierarchies that encourage coldness & dehumanization of the community, real local connections, perhaps even local flair besides the Wal-Mart and the pop radio station. Homogenization of culture helps no one, least of all the artists. Rest in Peace Pete.
Tristram is a cool new artist on Monstercat, one of the most agile & aware labels on the internet these days. Excuse the badly transcribed lyrics and look at the warrior standing tall with one hell of a sword. Stand tall my people. You got this and in case you’re not sure, check out the tune below for some inspirational bass.
