new music video from FirewoodPoetry – Mediastinum

Hey there internets!

We’ve got to meet an up-and-coming local producer FirewoodPoetry in the last couple of months and are really excited to see her grow and work hard at getting out there. In january, after listening to The Scientist EP I thought what a cool project it would be if we shot a music video for one of the tracks. After a few nights of brainstorming we narrowed it down to one track, and pumped out his beauty in a month and a half! I hope you enjoy!

Make sure to also check out her latest remix of Fear by Raavn, where she adds a great vocal to slick minimal house track.

the weekend wind down ft. firewoodpoetry

firewoodpoetry

Well it’s superbowl sunday for some, but for others it’s that day of the week where you just want to listen to some slow and chiller beats after a weekend of dancing your neck out.

Here is a little treat from a local artist FirewoodPoetry. Representing the pacific north-west, splitting her time between Saltspring Island and Vancouver, Trinity Forbes seems to have gained some momentum and is working hard on a new release to kickstart this year. Keep her on your radar for the next release (because after the sneak peak I got a few days ago) I can hardly wait to get my ears on it and hopefully catch her live show in the near future.

Make sure the sub is plugged in, light up the hooka, layback on the couch and enjoy this menacing, dark and steady EP. Here is The Scientist by FirewoodPoetry

enjoy,

four tet : jamie xx : lion

Anytime a jamie xx track comes on on my mp3 player, i always catch myself thinking who produced this quality track? And of course i momentarily realize it’s jamie xx. The 1/4 (1/3) of the XX is seriously the master craftsman of electronic sound. Prove me wrong, please!

The Cocktail Hour ft. Jonas Rathsman

This DJ plays amazing music and could probably build you a house in the woods with his bare hands.

James Blake – Retrograde

Its easy to see that dubstep has lost its way. You don’t need to see the glow stick toting shirtless fellows to know that we’ve fucked up. Fortunately, when the bros were busy throwing down, they failed to notice the rise of the next generation of bass music. Now, its time to crown our prince of dubstep. James Blake.

Retrograde is an ethereal yet powerful single off James’ sophomore album. It’s a hauntingly beautiful song that hints of another amazing album from the young Brit.

The album, Overgrown, drops on April 8th, 2013. You can also catch James at the Commodore Ballroom on April 25th.

DISCLOSURE

If you are into chill beats with a groovy feel give this UK based garage-house duo Disclosure a listen. Brothers, Guy and Howard Lawrence, mixed their first track at the youthful ages of 18 and 16. With only a few years experience, now 21 and 18, these two are blossoming into distinguished artists producing sultry dub/bass mixes that make you want to dance.

After attending their Canadian debut show in Toronto I was instantly hooked. With drum kits, keyboards, and synthesizers, in combination with their soulful beats, I couldn’t help but feel good.  These guys deliver the perfect mixture of electronic sounds and emotional elements.

Check out these tunes for a small taste of what this dynamic duo has to offer.
