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.
I retired from twerking for cool minute. It was a dark time in my life. I just wasn't inspired to move my rump. Trap music was getting stale. I left my favorite a$$-moving DJ, Dirtyfinger, back in Brooklyn. And on top of everything, my routine of constant-cardio left my booty a bit smaller than ideal for real rump-shaking.
But with the help of warmer weather, a squat rack, and a Brukwine class with my nyc girls- I'm BACK t'WERK. I don't care what anyone says. Simply put: It's fun to shake ya' ass. It all started with yesterday's EARTHQUAKE reminding me of this favorite Diplo track. Next thing you know, I compiled a monster playlist guaranteed to have you wining in no-time. This TUESDAY TURN-ON features remixes from Branchez, Ben Bruker, Dave Aude, Giraffage, and my personal savior of booty-shaking: DJ DirtyFinger. So press play, keep calm, & booty work.
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
Every night I've been chasing warm weather and sunshine in my sleep to get me through this season. Here's a dreamy hour long playlist for some warmer nights, even if you're spending it under the covers. Step Rockets Kisser, Tegan and Sara Closer, Young Summer Fever Dream and Laura Welsh Undiscovered are my personal favorites. Enjoy.
You're the only one that I've got. But I can't get lost in you. I can't get lost with you. I can't be someone that I'm not... t0 make it up to you. You're undiscovered. I wanna see the rest of you. I can't get next to you.
Holiday time! And I'm in the spirit of giving so here's a FREE DOWNLOAD! The bass-heavy, sick-minded duo Turnup just released an ill remix of our single, FREAKNESS and it's so.good. Get it now. Share it with a friend.
Because, in the warm words of Fakemoney, "It's Christmas in this Bitch".
