Holy Cow, I’m still here!
OK, so I don’t have any real good excuse for my absence. School? I finished May 2016. Yeah. I’ve been doing some film industry work since then on top of my shirty job but other than that…? Nothing really. Just a lot of fucking around with art projects, new people, and now back to job hunting. That’s the part about finishing school that sucks.
But meanwhile, lots of awesome music has come and gone. Did you guys catch Moderat’s third album? Fucking epic! But I’ll save that for its own post.
This is about my main Chromey, Chrome Sparks. Seems he’s got a new release today called Wake.
His first new release this year and as usual, a gorgeous track. Chrome Sparks is know for producing orchestral melodies layered on top of classical rhythms with a touch of hip hop vibe. Wake continues this trend with another gorgeous song steeped in synthwave filters and pulsing dancefloor vibes.
If you dig, be certain to check out his earlier releases Sparks, Goddess, Parallelism and Moonraker. All are incredible listens. Another awesome artist brought to you by Future Classic.
And now, to turn things up a bit. The Oliver duo from L.A. (Oliver “Oligee” Goldstein & Vaughn “U-Tern” Oliver) team up with big British producer Alex Metric on a sure fire dancefloor banger. It’s tracks like this that remind me why I still love house music. Happy Friday my friends, get out and dance!
Like Oliver on facebook, check out their soundcloud. Like Alex Metric on facebook, check out his soundcloud.
Pharrell‘s new album GIRL just drops on March 3rd. It seems he was able to get the robots to join him for yet another groovy floorfiller. Guy and Thomas are on the chorus on this one as Pharrell does his usual thing on the verse. You can stream the album right now over on iTunes.
Update: Well, looks like this isn’t ready for mass consumption yet according to “Web Sheriff”, sorry guys…
Prepare yourself for battle! #TeamGRUM or #TeamTensnake to declare your alliance (yea, I know this is way late… I don’t care). Tensnake opens up the battle with one of my favorite tracks, Coma Cat. GRUM retaliates with one of his first original tracks, Heartbeat. I can’t tell you how much I am loving this short mix. I won’t give away the rest… just enjoy. And be sure to keep up with Annie Mac’s shows on Radio 1.
Yup, The Knocks are back in it. Killin the dance funk groove on this new track. The single drops Feb. 18th on Neon Gold Records. For you hip people… they’re doin a presale for the vinyl release
