Brand New: Equal + LEFTI – “The Way I Move”

equal-lefti

Check out this sparkly new disco collab track from DJ’s Equal + LEFTI (at the bottom of post).

About Equal and LEFTI:

Equal is a New York City DJ and music producer originally from Asheville, NC. He’s previously spent his nights wooing crowds all over the world, from New York City’s hottest parties for the downtown-club kids and fashion elite, to large scale events and festivals such as Bonnaroo. As a lifetime drummer from a musically inclined family, his transition to production from solely DJ’ing was a natural one. He first garnered attention as a producer with the release of his single, “Lost in the Evening (ft. Gary Jules),” and his recent hit “Shakedown” has garnered worldwide DJ support alongside placement in outlets such as Vogue UK and a collaborative ad-campaign from Ciroc for Zoolander 2. Equal will continue to release exciting collaborations featuring indie music’s elite as the year continues.

LEFTI is a Brooklyn based Producer / DJ / Musician and Songwriter by way of Florida. Mainly known for his thrilling remixes for artists such as Anoraak, Gallant, CID, Big Data, ASTR, French Horn Rebellion and Solid Disco, LEFTI has been titled “a disco-house hero” by Dancing Astronaut and has “richly layered productions that tread the line between house, funk and indie dance” by Billboard. With only a handful of original material released (Big Beat, Atlas Chair and Mix Mash) LEFTI has already been supported by top tier DJ’s (Don Diablo, Laid Back Luke, Martin Solveig..) as well as placement in digital marketing synchronization through the likes of Hulu and Vanity Fair. LEFTI is currently set to release a string of singles in the months ahead.

Of the song:

“Collaborating on this song was a fun lil’ journey. Initially we were hanging out working on an edit which turned into a fun sample based disco track that ignited the idea to reach out to Adeline as a feature. Writing together was a blast and once we got her vocals in a great place, we realized we needed to change the instrument bed into something with a little more bite.” — Equal + LEFTI

New Album: Setting Sun – Be Here When You Get There

settingsun

“dramatic and poignant”  –  NPR

“Setting Sun create an Arcade Fire urgency, creating sweeping orchestrations, driving rhythms.  Delicate, hushed vocals and well-crafted pop songs” – Pop Matters

“Incredibly well-crafted songs ” – USA Today

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from Setting Sun. But, they’re back with a their fifth album called Be Here When You Get There out now (as of the 22nd) through Young Love Records.

Setting Sun’s songs are propelled by driving rhythms, tasteful acoustic guitar lines, graceful string orchestrations and frontman Gary Levitt’s intimate, earnest vocals.  Jen Turner (Here We Go Magic, Exclamation Pony) plays bass on the record. Levitt was born in Queens, New York but started the band in San Francisco. Brooklyn is now home base and is where this new album was recorded.

Have a listen at a couple of songs from the new album. Unfortunately, this playlist does not have the 2 songs that I like from the album, “Idiot” and “Singularity”, which the latter has sort of a Gary Jules sound to it. All of the songs remind me a teensy bit of the Dandy Warhols, too.

Here ya go!
