We’ve been sitting on this one for a while without writing it up but better late than never so here is our 6th mixtaste coming at you! This one (as seems to be a trend lately) has a pretty fun summery feel overall and includes some amazing talents. Check it out!
Carousel- Another Day: pure electro-pop bliss
YOUNG GALAXY- Pretty Boy: indie-pop with a quick synth that has us feeling like we’re floating off their upcoming Ultramarine.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis- Thrift Shop (Epoch Remix): Macklemore has long been one of our favorite rappers and we’re so happy that he’s finally getting attention. Many have attempted remixes of his mega-hit Thrift Shop and here Epoch kills in with a huge dubstep remix that keeps the whole song and adds some edgy EDM frills.
Tove Lo- Habits: out of Stockholm, Tove Lo reminds us of a dark and freaky Marina. Her voice and pop beats are blowing us away
Jinja Safari: Oh Benzo!: we love a lot of Australians and Jinja Safari are some of our favorites. Their sound incorporates so many different elements and instruments to create their indie-world vibe
Neulore: Shadow of a Man: coming out of Nashville, Neulore is a strong modern folk outfit with a real positive tone. more from them this year and a free EP for now!
Half Moon Run- Call Me in the Afternoon: just coming off of supporting Mumford and Sons on tour these Canadians produce some great indie folk-pop with really catchy vocals
The Tallest Man On Earth- Weather of a Killing Kind: modern folk defined in a man. so excited to see him at Outside Lands
SWIM DEEP- She Changes the Weather: self described “Birmingham boys making sun kissed noise” – a look at one of our greatly anticipated indie albums of the summer
Misun- Promise Me (prod. by Nacey): totally dope vocals on this indie/electro jam. check out more and a free download!
HAERTS- Wings (Wildcat! Wildcat! Remix): a pairing of two great indie acts, Wildcat! Wildcat! adds some big swelling synths to HAERTS’ original
KYLE- Fruit Snacks (prod. Beni Haze): we discovered him after his feature on Martin Solveig’s latest and the Ventura rapper’s chilled out flow has got us listening to more. free
The Hood Internet- Ignition (1901 Remix): You may have heard it at Coachella, but the Hood Internet has got the produced version here for free download to finish off the mixtaste
