melt yourself down

melt yourself down’s music is described as a bit of jazz, punk with African elements – they are a sextet featuring saxophonist Pete Wareham and Shabaka Hutchings, drummer Tom Skinner, bassist Ruth Goller, vocalist Kushal Gaya, and percussionist Satin Singh.

Their music can be a bit intense and is definitely not for those looking for low-key instrumental, but if you’re looking for something upbeat and different definitely giv’em a listen.

yes breakbot, yes.

it’s the last day before i submit my thesis, and i’m looking for FUEL!!!

needed to find a new mix to keep me going for the day, and i knew breakbot would have just the right thing.

he released it one month ago, so i guess we’re a little late – but  in luck… the set is free for download 🙂

disclosure

there’s no stopping this british duo. we’re highly anticipating their new album Disclosure Settle, which will be released on June 3rd of this year. only two months to go, but we’ve already pre-ordered the album on itunes. not only are they extremely talented, and working with huge artists such as jessie ware and SBTRKT, but they are both 90’s babies. Guy and Howard are only 22 and 18, respectively.

well now we feel old.

they’ll be on tour in the UK over the next few months, but also playing at festivals such as Spring Attitude Festival 2013 in Rome, Italy (May 11-12), and Osheaga Festival in Montreal, Canada (August 1-2). click here for complete tour list.

here are a few of our fave tracks.

girls love beyonce

drake does it again.

I’m not sure he’ll ever make a track that we don’t love.

and of course, he’s right on about beyonce.

october’s very own published it to soundcloud just 2 days ago, and they already have close to 1 million plays. let’s also mention that james fauntelroy’s soulful chorus is one that gets us….

baby i’m yours

came across this gem while listening to the “indie apartment party” playlist on songza.

just checked out the vid, and now i love this song even more.

explanation: “Video was (directed) handmade by IRINA DAKEVA @ WIZZ
It is composed of approx 2000 images watercolor painted one after another (we say Aquarelle in french, way more sexy).”

“engineered for maximum funness”

2 weeks after the launch of the new iPhone 5, comes the new and improved iPod touch.

now available in colours – it sports a 5 megapixel camera, with iOs 6 software, a 4 inch retina display screen, and probably a million other cool things that you would discover once owning one.

even the white buds have been updated. hand clap once more for apple.

running (disclosure remix)

currently OBSESSED with jessie ware. especially her track “running”.

initially loved it about a year ago when my brother, who is a dj in montreal, played it for me. so, when it came up on my songza (best app ever), i knew i had to add it to my current “*faves*” playlist.

vogue covers – part 1

january 1990 – the iconic cover features, from left: naomi campbell, linda evangelista, tatjana patitz, christy turlington and cindy crawford. all photographed wearing tops by giorgio di sant’angelo.

the cover was shot by world-reknown peter lindburgh.

yesterday, in our lecture on fashion media and celebrities, we saw how supermodels seemed to rule the world in the 90’s.

a few of our favourite covers, and of course, january 1990 with the famous 5.

that same year, freedom ’90 was released, and george michael decided not to appear in his own music video. instead, the video features the 5 ladies from the vogue january 1990 cover, mouthing the lyrics to this awesome track. the men you see in the video were also male models at the time.
