Today's Tuesday Turn-On is inspired by some great classic hip hops tracks that have currently been remixed and remastered by today's top producers. EVERY song but one on here comes with a **free download**. Happy summer children.
It’s nothing new to say that summer is the time when electronic music booms. Festivals are everywhere, and DJ’s are on every corner. This week's playlist is inspired by just that; hot summer nights, shakin' it to your favorite electronic masterminds. I know when I’m in Brooklyn, and the sun is setting, you can always find me getting down to Dirtyfinger’s latest mix. He throws an awesome party, locals in the area; get.on.that.
South By South West (SXSW), a music conference originally intended to feature local musicians and unsigned artists, has now turned into a corporate sponsored week-long party. This year is bigger than ever, thanks to the iTunes festival, Lady Gaga and secret shows by JBeibs. It's hard to sift through the hype and find up&coming acts on their grind, driving broken-down vans, schlepping their own equipment and promoting their music over youtube and soundcloud pages. I happen to know a few incredibly talented artists fitting just this description, thus I present you with my "SouthBy" picks of 2014.
Enjoy the party and be safe, kids! xx
OKAY, so I got a little distracted by the cute animals and hot male models I've been working with recently, but my summer mix is finally here! All the favorite songs you've been hearing in my classes are all compiled into the ULTIMATE summer jam playlist. A few of my favorites?
As many of you know- I'm one half of an electronic duo called | NO WAY JOSIE | . I'm super excited to bring you our 1st single and title track off our upcoming album, FREAKNESS. It's sweaty, sexy, wild, a little wierd and totally workout-worthy.
All you have to do is "Like" us on FB and you get a free download. Sweetness. ...I mean- FREAKNESS!
PS. if you like what you hear, we are playing The Flat in Brooklyn with Teen Commandments tomorrow @ 8:30. Come get wild with us! PPS. Our debut EP (released in 2011) is available on iTunes & Spotify.
Word from NYC is that you are going through withdraw. To be sure, any change is difficult to take. Free of my busy NY life, I've had much more time to sift through new music and make some grand playlists. Here's two of them: Wake Up! is to help get you moving whenever you just can't seem to do it.
Blink is what calms you down when you're freaking out. I made these for Heather, and for myself, and for anyone else who is coping with the new: new season, new cities, new faces, new goals.

I've been posting my playlists to iTunes Ping for about a year now. I know I know, it's not Spotify... I'll get there one day.
