This post is not just for albums of 2013, but mostly what I’ve listened in 2013 – in no particular order. (And trust me, there were WAY more I could have added, but this is what I immediately thought of!)

Playlist No. 3

Diptic-2

Happy Monday everyone! Hope your weekends were awesome.

Once again, we’re here for my Top 5 songs of this week. So, here they are:

3.      Metric – Hardwire
4.      Wild Beasts – Wanderlust
5.      Foamo – Release Me ft. Lotti

Your Head and Your Heart

Okay, so maybe I’m a bit biased here, cus my good friend Cale Glendening was the Director and DP on this music video. (Not to mention, almost everyone that worked in or on the video is a friends as well.) I am just so incredibly proud of all the hard work and creativity they put into this!

 

Let me just state, though, that this song has been played over and over since I first heard it. The Saint Johns bring a bone-chilling tone to this track. Not only with their beautiful melodies and harmonies, but within their lyrics: “My eyes are locked to you and I’m falling / Your hands are cold / You say that your mind’s made up / And I should go..”

 

Painfully relatable and beautifully sung. Check out the video, it’s one of my favourite music-videos of 2013.

 

Enjoy! Xo

Nashville’s Own DJ Trio, NoiseFloor

If you follow me on any of my social medias or are my friend on Facebook (or real life), then you have an inkling who NoiseFloor is. If you do not, well, I believe today is your lucky day. It is long overdue, and about time that I let you in on this trio of amazing DJ’s.

 

NoiseFloor is Nashville/NYC based Donald Landphair, Nathan Brown and Ben Keith. These talented guys produce deep house, electro, future bass music, hip hop and drum & bass sounds. AND THEY’RE GOOD. LIKE, REALLY GOOD. If you don’t believe me, just check out their most recent project, 2014 Deep House Winter Mix, by the talented Nathan Brown. It is one of my favourites to this date.

 

 

NoiseFloor has been making magic together since ’99 and has the honour of holding international production credits which include releases on EMI France, Proper/ Improper Talent, Tharsis Records and Big Fish Recordings. NoiseFloor recently rose to no. 5 on the drum and bass charts for “The Noisefloor EP” on the legendary DJ Raps label “Propa Talent”. They still continue to receive well-deserved radio and international club play. Plus, I know that whether they’re mixing in the studio, DJ’ing a party or event, or I’m just listening to their stuff all alone – I am ALWAYS dancing.

 

“We have produced remixes for some of our favorite artists.” says NoiseFloor. “Five Knives, Jamie Lidell, Yelawolf, Trinidad Jame$, Kink Ador, Cherub, Wick-it and more.”

 

I highly suggest giving NoiseFloor’s SoundCloud a listen, as well as check out a fun music video I was featured in for their original drum & bass track “MY HEART ft. Angel”. (I will post it below!)

 

Have a wonderful Thursday! Xo

Twin of Myself

Black Moth Super Rainbow | Twin of Myself

 

I’ve currently been obsessed with this song, and music video.  Their video perfectly fits the songs really mellow, chill, almost hippy-like vibes.  It’s enchanting, hypnotizing, and I’d even say a bit creepy – in the best possible way.

 

I won’t say much more about it, because it’s an experience on its own.  Watch it, listen to it…enjoy. :)
