CEO - Illuminata EP


CEO is another swedish indie band, coming from the same record company as jj, Sincerly Yours. If The Tough Alliance rings any bells to you, then knowing that CEO is the solo project of the bands lead singer might interest you. So here is a two song EP, with a cover of Beyonce's Halo giving me reason to post, i really enjoyed the track, hope you can see it on similar terms.

Astro Nautico

Not much to say about Astro Nautico, these Brooklyn beat guru's know their shit when it comes to slippery smooth jazzy and bass packed beats. I highly recommend you try their Quiet Nights EP, and if you want the full experience turn up the bass, cuz it gets unexplainablely good. You can find all their downloadables at their website Astro Nautico.

jj - KILLS


My obsession with jj continues.... recently this eerie Swedish pop band give us a new release. Renown for taking a bunch of hip hop beats that we are all familiar with, and re-creating them with their uniquely ghostly voices that leave you completely Mindfucked! Recently releasing a small EP titled "KILLS"
My slow ass internet in Bali, is taking its time on this download so i haven't gotten down to listening to all the tracks yet, but instantly knew that i had to get it on the blog...

Kooley High

Kooley High is the combination of two producers and three MC's at NC State. You may think too many artists combined would just sound messy and annoying, but Kooley High keep it nice and smooth. Let the music speak for itself.

Dntel

Dntel pioneered the genre of glitch/indietronica, although most of you probably know him as the instrumentalist teamed with Ben Gibbard in The Postal Service. He is renown for cutting up the sounds from acoustic guitars, accordions and many other instruments to create his masterpieces. Some a quite dark in their nature but others are just beautiful, he doesn't have a very large discography but its worth the listen.



Bonobo

Haven't gotten around to posting the classics that can be found in our libraries. Bonobo has definitely become one of our classics, we've had many sessions with this legendary producer. Simon Green debuted in 1999 at 18 years old, now he is a notable artist in the electronic- downtempo genre. His music has been heard as the post party chillout soundtrack, perfect way to wind down the night, or kick it with a couple friends. Kiara, Kong, Ketto, Kota.








Beirut

The EP's and the albums of Beirut are largely the work of Zach Condon. Condon was a straight A student until he dropped out of high school at age 16 to travel europe in a drunken haze, cavorting and partying with the locals wherever he ended up. It was on one of these nights where he was first exposed to Balkan music, blasting from the upstairs apartment was the Boban Markovic Orkestar. Condon ended up with the Serbians all night, going through albums country by country, note for note. You could say that this was Condons stepping stool into the world of music and he went on to form a band of his own making use of a total of 16 instruments. His voice is unbelievable and the band itself is pure magic.

Phoenix - The Early Days

Phoenix only really came to life since there album Wolfgang Amadeus, and it was through the albums 'feel good' factor that got it regarded as one of the top albums of the year. Most have yet too look deeper into the band's earlier days as everyones been so caught up in the likes of Lisztomania and Girlfriend but i can assure you that your in for a real treat here - Thomas Mars voice is as good as ever before, the melody is still psychedelic, and they don't miss a beat.

Neon Hitch


Neon hitch
a british singer, she was raised in a gypsy family, believe it or not she was once flat mates with Amy Winehouse.
She covers a lot of popular songs, including "drop it like its hot" by snoop dog.  The same idea as "JJ"with a completely different flavor and vibe though.
She has sang along side 50 cent, The Streets, and even made a song with 3OH3.
Her amazing voice echos on for ages even after you stop listening.

Finally Reggin



The band LJC created this mashup.
Honestly its one of the only really good ones on the whole album.
A couple kids from high school making mashups, I came across them and noticed pretty lights, my favorite song by them by far is, "finally moving"
and putting it together with some of Notorious's rap, genius.
