[We See You!] Rhye
[We apologize for the past couple weeks - the team has been on a short leave of absence working on several scattered projects. We may have been away, but we’ve still been listening.]
For example, just the other night I was pleasantly confronted with a couple tracks and a dramatic new video by Rhye. The mysteriously soulful LA-duo first surfaced in February of this year with an surprising debut single “Open”, which was later followed by more uptempo tracks “3 Days” and “Hunger”. Though quiet in the latter months, the duo are leaving quite the impression on new listeners with sophisticated vocals and string-heavy productions.
Rhye is [rightfully] back in the bright lights with the release of their latest single “The Fall”. You can watch the stunning visual pairing to “The Fall” (directed by Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen) and all their music below.

[Track Of The Day] Bat For Lashes - “All Your Gold”

The extremely talented, yet underexposed UK-artist Natasha Khan (aka Bat For Lashes) is only a month away from the release of her third album The Haunted Man. Khan’s newest track “All Your Gold” is the third preview from the future release - and probably the best one yet.
Listen to the mature and beautifully dramatic “All Your Gold”, preview the other new tracks “Laura” and “Marilyn” below, and look out for Bat For Lashes new album The Haunted Man 10/15.

[Video] Frank Ocean - “Pyramids”

Mr. Frank Ocean is exploding right before our eyes.
In two weeks of work, Frankie has lived under a microscope performing under the brightest of lights and on career defining stages - MTV’s Video Music Awards, and most recently the Season 38 premiere of Saturday Night Live. Critics and amateur enthusiasts have been gushing for days over Frank’s intimate live renditions of “Thinking About You” and “Pyramids”.
Let the gushing continue. 
Pay attention to the details and don’t you dare blink - the brand new video “Pyramids” (directed by Nabil) is a masterful work of art that transforms Frank Ocean’s words into a reality bending trip fest.

If you’re anything like me right now, you might be looking for a good ol’ fashioned musical “pick me up”. [It’s been a rough week for fantasy football. Sigh lol.]
This week’s System Overload is a scattered assortment of fresh new tunes starting with two stunning vocal performances - first by a familiar face in the recently featured Trails And Ways, and second by Patterson Hood (frontman of the acclaimed southern rock band Drive-By Truckers). The playlist proceeds with glorified instruments in “Sweet Talk” and “How Are You” - a charity-produced track by Enter Shikari's lead singer Rou Reynolds (aka Rout). Matt & Kim and Ellie Goulding close out the first half of the mix with previews for their highly-anticipated album releases - Lightning and Halycon - both due in the early part of October.
The EDM portion of the System Overload is prime cut as usual. The attractive Aussies - NERVO - have 5-minutes of purely undeniable hook in their latest single “Reason”. Remixes by The M Machine and Taiki & Nulight carry on the high energy with their unconventional takes to tracks “Lightspeed” and “Pour Your Love”. The playlist ends strong with a trap original by Chicago basshead Stratus, and flashy remixes by 17-year old Lenno and UK’s Third Party.

[Track Of The Day] Plastic Plates - “More Than Love”
Plastic Plates - More Than Love [Right-click to download.]
You can never go wrong with an artist under the iconic Kitsuné umbrella.
The Australian-export, now LA-product Plastic Plates is evidence of our claim. Felix Bloxsom aka Plastic Plates has finally released his official debut EP titled Things I Didn’t Know I Loved. “More Than Love”, off this brand new EP, is an undeniably simple dance track that just grooves really well. There’s no huge drama and climax here - just high finesse nu-disco highlighted by mature rhythms and uber-stylish synth work.
It’s THE ideal summer tune.
Think white sand, cute girls, vintage sunglasses, palm trees, hot girls, colorful drinks, and now Plastic Plates… Ummm so, why should summer ever have to end?

[Video] Flying Lotus - “Until The Quiet Comes” (Short Film)

The widely-revered experimental music artist Flying Lotus is about to release his fourth album, Until The Quiet Comes, on October 1st/2nd from Warp Records.
In anticipation for the new album, Flying Lotus teamed up with contemporary director Kahlil Joseph (known by many for his work with Shabazz Palaces) to create a shockingly magnificent short film loaded in expressive themes of urban violence and the youth. The stunning images of death and drowning are certainly graphic and controversial, but they’re without a doubt profound.

We weren’t expecting to hear such firepower from the electropop duo Icona Pop, but then again they’re Swedes (and they know some stuff about dance music).
The new single from their upcoming The Iconic EP - “Ready For The Weekend” - is yet to be released to the masses in original format, but we have an alt version of the track that is a guaranteed gem. Filtered, glitched, and mixed to perfection - Icona Pop’s paired vocals are a perfect framework for a potential dancefloor killer.
The Iconic EP is set to release on October 16th, and their debut record is expected to follow in 2013.

[Track Of The Day] The Knocks - “Learn To Fly” (Com Truise Remix)

Today, the sharp NYC production duo The Knocks have released a brand new EP featuring two stellar singles “The Feeling” and “Learn To Fly”. The Feeling EP also showcases corresponding remixes by an eclectic range of producers - Edwin Van Cleef, Seamus Haji, Lazerdisk Party Sex, The FatRat, and Seth Haley aka Com Truise.
In The Knocks’ collection of mostly electro and house tracks - Com Truise’s blissfully 80’s remix of “Learn To Fly” sticks out like a sore thumb, but its a genuine breath of fresh air. The style and swagger of the remix isn’t far from what we expect for Mr. Truise, but we were surprised (maybe even astonished) by its rather upbeat nature. We can ride on that high rhythm and meaty bass line all day.

[Video] Dirty Projectors - “Hi Custodian” (Short Film)

We are huge supporters of the Dirty Projectors, who back in July released their wildly successful second album Swing Lo Magellan. The band partnered up with Youtube and the folks at the mighty Pitchfork to create an artful visualization for their album.
Directed by frontman David Longstreth, “Hi Custodian” is a surreal exploration of life, death, and rebirth - themes evident throughout Swing Lo Magellan. According to a press release, the film was loosely inspired by Kanye West’s epic "Runaway" and Prince’s musical "Purple Rain" - but all that aimless wandering through vast open spaces remind us very much of Daft Punk’s hyper-cryptic film "Electroma".
If you haven’t yet listened to the Dirty Projectors’ Swing Lo Magellan… this might be the best way to.

[Video] Calvin Harris & Example - We’ll Be Coming Back (Feature Cuts Remix)

Calvin Harris & Example - We’ll Be Coming Back (Feature Cuts Remix) [Right-click to download.]
We’ve been purposefully holding off on Calvin Harris and Example's successful collaboration single "We’ll Be Coming Back". Long story short, we’ve been patiently waiting for that good enough reason to talk about it. Don’t get me wrong: the original track is great. From Calvin’s characteristically solid production work to Example’s pure hook for a voice, it’s exactly what you want in a dance crossover hit. The video paired up well, too. Directed by Saman Keshavarz, the classic narrative of a heist with vintage sports cars was entertaining - polished and ready for massive appeal. And that it was.
But we waited… because we knew there was bound to be a remix that would rise to the surface and become that exclamation point for the single.
Once again, Feature Cuts has risen to that occasion - not only bringing us a remixed track but also his own re-edited interpretation for music video. The newer video is essentially a glorified remix, in itself. Feature Cuts does what he does best - cuts it all up and pieces it all back together within the context of his frenetic dubstep rework. With all the quick edits from day to night, we’re pleasantly surprised that the video still makes sense.

The remixes are graciously offered up by some of the very finest - 3LAU, Bauuer, R3HAB, Major Lazer, and The Dirty Tees.

Dominating fools and friends on PartyPoker.

[Track Of The Day] Noosa - “Walk On By” (Sound Remedy Remix)

LA-based Sound Remedy has been building up a stellar collection of remixes in this short few months. His electro, pseudo dubstep reworks of Imogen Heap’s “Hide & Seek” and Ellie Goulding’s “Hanging On” have sat like concrete on Hype Machine charts in the past - and “Walk On By” will certainly follow in their steps. The rising NY artist - Noosa - is also far from a stranger to Hypem with the recent release of her debut EP. The two are clearly a match made in heaven and the remix is evidence of that.
The remix of “Walk On By” is full of depth and dynamics, and at 7 and a half minutes… it’s patient, yet so so gratifying. The track has a great sense of movement and feel provided by Remedy’s airy pad work, which carry you right into its dazzling breaks and leads.
It took only one day for Sound Remedy’s remix of Noosa “Walk On By” to shoot up all the way to #1 on the Hypem charts.
No wonder.

[We See You!] BIG MAKK
[I just watched a documentary about trap music (which I’ll post later today), so I’m probably just in a really hyped mindset to write about it. Haha.]
The explosion of trap music within the dance community is a pure sight to see. I don’t think we’ve ever seen such a changing of the tides since the dubstep bubble burst some 2 or so years ago. The cornerstone has been set by Diplo and the guys over at Mad Decent, A-Trak and Fool’s Gold, and artists like Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus - who’ve believed so heavily in experimentation and progression of sound.
It seems like a daily basis that we come across new moombahton or trap artists - it’s refreshing. This week’s “We See You!” could very well be the entire [new] trap movement, but we’ll just let our own homegrown talent… Orlando’s very own BIG MAKK carry that torch.
   
Come on - Rusko, Pryda, Robert Miles… BIG MAKK’s sample selection is silly but has us wide eyed. [You have our attention.]
Sure, we love the fact that his newest tracks [above] are all tightly constructed compositions packed with all that snare punch in the trap manner, but we can’t help but commend him as a simple listener of music.
We aren’t looking to hear the next great song - we want the next great artist.
BIG MAKK seems to have an inspired ear for all sounds, the vision to sample it, and the productions chops to blow it out of the water - why can’t it be him?
Check out the rest of his killer work on Soundcloud and Tumblr.
