REVIEW: FatherTiger – EP + Free Download!

Father Tiger, a Los Angeles based synthpop duo comprised of Greg Delson on vocals, synths, programming, songwriting & John Russell on synths, programming, guitar, and percussion. The duo have recently released their brand spanking new 4-track EP.

Upon first listen, Father Tiger’s EP comes off as a refreshing revisit of yesterday’s synthpop with a modern twist. A catchy blend of familiar melodies but with synth-laden electronic beats that encourage spontaneous dancing.

Delson’s vocals on the single worthy, Till The Morning, draw you in and delight, all the while Russell’s driving percussion and synth beats make for a well crafted track. Till The Morning starts off as so many 80’s pop tracks do, with poppy, floaty notes and blossoms into a full guttural “sing-it-in-the shower” love song, with pleas of romance and just one last night.

The track, Lose Our Minds, sounds like a homage to synth gods such as Depeche Mode. The intro has strong New Wave influences, a genre that I don’t get to hear nearly enough of these days. Overall, the EP is a solid listen – it’s bright, fun, vibrant, and well-rounded, giving you a bit of dancable tracks, sing along pop ballads,  and all the reminders of what we loved about the 80s.

If you’re in the LA area tonight, catch them at The Roxy! More info HERE

Electric Daisy Carnival – MetLife Stadium – Saturday & Sunday, May 19-20, 2012 – Event

The Electric Daisy Carnival, the West Coast massive rave phenomenon is making its way to New York. One of EDM’s hugest annual parties, drawing over 250,000 attendees to its last year’s 3-day madness in Las Vegas, has slowly made its way across the country to converge on New York May 19-20, 2012.

Rumors have been swirling in the community for months now about the possibility of EDC making its way over to NY. However, as we West Coast transplants know, this is a party that is not for the light-hearted and requires actual PHYSICAL SPACE, which NY is not particularly known for. However, MetLife Stadium has been confirmed as the venue and should be able to take on crowds this huge.

Insomniac Events alongside with Pacha NY will be working collaboratively to rollout the event. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 2nd, at 3pm EST. Go to Insomniac Events for more details and here for tickets

I hope you savages are excited as I am, because this party will be bananas! I can only hope I can last for these 2 days of mayhem. Get a taste of the event below. Dance well and be well, my lil savages. 😉

xx,

LoW

Trill Wave MINI MIX – GianniLee – Free Download

As of late, the latest trend in hip-hop has been ambient, lo-fi beats. Whether it be the Odd Future crew, A$AP Rocky or The Weeknd, hip-hop is turning the corner towards a new era of wider acceptance. The chilled out grooves being quite the contrast to past eras such as Gangsta rap of the 90s, or the excessive Bling-Bling days of the 2000s.

Kanye West, being the trendsetter that he is, started elements of the movement with, 808s & Heartbreak, back in 2008 with the synthpop and electronica based album. The trend didn’t catch on in full but the groundwork was laid for today’s version of Trillwave. And if it is still unclear for you, have a taste below from GianniLee. Homeboy basically threw in every MC in the Trill game, from A$AP Rocky, Space Ghost Purp, to Ryshon Jones, Grande Marshall, Flatbush Zombies and Paris Artelli.
