So, some mates and I are throwing our second swing party and it’s going down this Saturday. The first one (last November) was easily the most rammed, all-locals show I’ve seen and was definitely one of the best shows I’ve played, let alone partied at. We’re hoping the excitement continues, obviously.
You can grab the details in the poster above but if you need more check the facebook event here.
Manalogue is proud to promote a new remix competition for PARACHUTE YOUTH’s debut single “Can’t Get Better Than This.”
We teamed up with Warner Music and WAVO, the social network for music, for the competition in anticipation of Parachute Youth’s upcoming debut album. We’re challenging producers of all sorts to put forward their best remix of “Can’t Get Better Than This” which is already smashing charts globally.
The winner, judged by Parachute Youth and A&R scouts from Warner Music, will see their creation receive an official release on Warner Music accompanied by a proper servicing campaign, and marketed across the entire Wavo network. Listen to the track below as well as some of the awesome official remixes. For complete contest details, read on!
OFF RECORDINGS presses yet another impressive collection of tracks in this new installment, tapping into Brazil’s underground talent. Sao Paulo resident DASHDOT, who provides the single “Booty Clap”, a thunderous stomper with a deep low end bump to light any dancefloor on fire.
OFF family regulars, TAPESH & DAYNE S, who released the top seller Got To Live EP,are deluxe guests here, bringing their remix flavour with a calypso-infused bassline.
The second track from the land of caipirinha and futebol comes from production team RE DUPRE and ANGELO FRACALANZA. “L.O.V.E.” broods darkness in its depth and the Biggie samples put this one into position for one of the top tracks of 2013.
For full streams of these tracks, check out the ace videos below.
I’m always amazed how STANTON WARRIORS can consistently produce tunes that sound distinctly theirs yet progressive and relevant to what’s happening all around them. Without having any insight into their production techniques, the critical element (for me) of the Warriors’ tunes seems to be their mastery of the MPC and the 808. The kick drums and basslines always drive their beats with such rich and lush low end that can’t be found anywhere else. Both cuts in the Where’s the Beef? single, the title track and “MPC” are prime examples. Don’t believe me? Check out the videos by the DANCEFLOOR OUTLAWS below – Your ears won’t lie.
Oh, and you gotta check out their latest mix too. It’s a stripped down mix of bass & beats they made to compliment their new Stanton Sessions 4 compilation which is being released in various territories around the world this month. To be expected there’s the afformentioned 808 breaks, but there’s a some garage influences and some custom edits (that I’d give my left nut for) too.
Finally, if you missed these, for shame. Get on it. We’ll start with a free download, then the PLUMP DJs remix of “New York.”
Can’t complain much with the number of touring djs making their way to Winnipeg. One act coming through our small city is none other than WICK-IT THE INSTIGATOR. The Nashville native wraps up his Canadian tour in Winnipeg on Saturday, April 27. Seeing how the kids here maintain a healthy bass diet, I’m sure Wick-It will serve up a massive buffet.
The show is at The Zoo and tickets will run you $15 if you grab them in advance. Otherwise they’re $20 at the door. Get there early though to check out the locals. Check the Facebook event for more details.
If Wick-It’s productions are anything to judge his live performances by, I’m sure you’ll be wobbling well into Sunday.
It’s no secret LANCE HERBSTRONG are in favour of marijuana use. They’re trying to spread the word about it with a Peter Tosh and Sublime bootleg which is quite effing amazing actually, and kind of perfect for the day of awareness.
