belarbi

Hot off the press!!!

Check out this new remix from Belarbi.

Listen: SBTRKT – “New Dorp. New York” (feat. Ezra Koenig [Belarbi] Remix))

He writes: (sic)

Hi guys,

This one is special, tricky I would say as I’m such a fan of sbtrkt and Vampire week end.
I humbly tried to give a personal twist to their great song.
Since they released it, it seemed I had to drop everything else and only do that
I’m happy to share it fresh with you guys
[Belarbi]

Freshly out in the limelight, [Belarbi] has already received a warm welcome on social networks. His debut remix, a version of Nonono’s “Pumpin Blood”, has promptly gathered a half million plays on Soundcloud. His first original track, “Paradise” was an airy yet catchy display of his rich and diverse influences. Add a stream of well-polished productions bringing a unique touch to tracks such as Yuna’s “I Wanna Go” or Two Door Cinema Club’s “Changing Of The Seasons”. Forward-thinking label Kitsune got it right, releasing [Belarbi]’s remix “Kyllan” by BeatauCue. And Lykke Li “No Rest For the Wicked” last month.

Listen: Kelly Sweet – “In The Air Tonight” (Phil Collins Cover)

artworks-000067772664-ogbq7z-t500x500
 
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Kelly Sweet has recorded a fantastic remake of the Phil Collins classic “In The Air Tonight”.
 

The track is currently featured in the promo adverts for an upcoming J.J. Abrams-produced NBC TV show called “Believe”.

Kelly Sweet’s music idles comfortably between the quirkiness of Sia, the dreaminess of School Of Seven Bells, the innocence of Lykke Li, and the dance-ready energy of Metric.

New Collaboration: SMILE

The brainchildren behind two of Sweden’s most beloved musical projects have combined to form one artistic force, the result being an infectious pop revolution. Smile is the collaboration of Björn Yttling, world-renowned writer, producer and bassist of international indie-pop powerhouse Peter Bjorn and John, and Joakim Åhlund of bear-masked electro outfit Teddybears. The duo is excited to announce the May 29th release of their debut LP, A Flash in the Night, as the first artist album from the Swedish artist collective, Ingrid.  The recording is fully loaded with electro-focused pop tracks, many instrumental and constructed around addictive synth. The vocals that are offered are artfully sparse. The album features the single “Clean Gloves, Dirty Hands,” a standout instrumental track that The Fader has deemed, “excellent”, set amongst the hazy and nostalgic “Jean Michel,” complete with retro future-synth and the dream-pop gems “Crooked” and “Satellite Blues”

Ingrid made it’s official debut on Record Store Day, April 21st. with a 15-track compilation aptly titled Ingrid Volym I . The release features new original tracks from Nordic musicians and label founders Lykke Li, Joakim Ahlund of Teddybears, Miike Snow and Björn Yttling of Peter Björn and John.  In addition to solo music projects by members of Peter Björn and John, Teddybears and Miike Snow, additional artists on the compilation include Andrew Wyatt, The Chinamen, Coco Morier, Electrocute, Hortlax Cobra, Little Majorette, Max Von Sydow, Peter Moren and Starlight Serenaders. The story behind the Swedish powerhouse label is anything but ordinary. Now they have all joined forces to record music as a single sonic entity highlighting Sweden’s eclectic music scene, ranging from dark, lush cosmic pop to psychedelic minimalism to melodic kraut.

New Music: Gigamesh

Gigamesh’s debut self-titled EP is available through all digital retailers starting today, through Our Label International. Additionally, fans can buy the extended version of the single “When You’re Dancing Ft. Induce” exclusively on Beatport. Gigamesh has received considerable attention and support from DJs as diverse as DJ AM and Brodinski to Busy P and Fare Soldi for his bootleg remixes of artists like Animal Collecitve, Lykke Li and Radiohead, the latter two of which hit #1 on the Hype Machine. In celebration of the EP release, he has released the new “It’s So Intense” (Fare Soldi Enrico Pallazzo Remix) MP3.

Check it out and download HERE.

Gigamesh opens the EP with disco-infused single “When You’re Dancing (feat. Induce)” with a hook that commands you to move. “It’s So Intense” lives up to its name as a hazy synth-driven club banger. EP closer “People” shows the melodic side of Gigamesh, lead by melodic vocals from Nicole Godiva while still incorporating bass guitar and synths.

Known for pushing the boundaries of dance music, Gigamesh has been making his mark for several years in dance clubs around the world. He has garnered widespread success with his own popular blend of remixes, as well as his work with remix group DiscoTech, and his role in Señor Stereo, a disco influenced live-electronic group. Gigamesh was hired to remix Mike Posner’s “Cooler Than Me” in late 2009.  Ultimately chosen to be the first single on Posner’s debut album, the Gigamesh version went on to sell over 2.5 million copies.

Gigamesh Tour Dates
10/29: Minneapolis, MN @ Kitty Cat Klub, Record Release Show
11/4: Toronto, ON @ The Gladstone
11/5: New York, NY @ Juliet Supperclub
