Playing catch-up

It’s been a while. Whoops. The amount of amazing new music lately is insane. I’ve been sticking with my playlist-making on my SoundCloud channel, so if I’m not blogging and you need new tunes, that’s the place to look :)

I’m also working on a “Best of 2014″ list that I’ve been jotting in my phone for the past few months and will finish up at the end of the year. It’ll include my favorite songs, albums, EPs, best new artists etc. for the 2014 year. It’s going to be crazy long by the time I finish it, but oh well!photo

Hmm, what else? Summer’s officially over, and I’m thrilled with the number of shows and festivals I was able to attend while working more than 40 hours each week. (Yeah, I made a list. Judge me. I like to keep track of things).

Anyway, I’m going to put a few of my most recent playlists on this blog post and attempt to keep up better in the future!

Top 10 Tracks of the Week | 7/27-8/2

Busy week with no time to elaborate about playlists. Here’s this past week’s, along with the week before that. Check ittttt

Top 5 Tracks of the Week | 7/20-7-26

Top 10 Tracks of the Week | 7/13-7/19

Whoops. Late again. By two weeks. You know what they say about life, though. It goes on :) These past two weeks, I’ve had to do a “Top 10 Tracks of the Week” instead of the usual five because there have been SO many incredible releases. Cutting down on the descriptions because of the number of tracks, though. Enjoy!

Track 1

I really don’t think I need to gush more every time I post something by SirensCeol. He’s on a fast track to being my favorite producer this year. Everything he touches turns to gold, including this.

Track 2

Getting more into chill/tropical-y/electro stuff lately. Love this track from Laszlo and WRLD. Both so young, yet so talented.

Track 3

DJ Fresh, Ellie Goulding AND drum & bass? I was sold before I even listened.

Track 4

PBN are forever innovative with their music, and this track is no exception. These guys always do it their way and never follow trends or what’s popular. I love it.

Track 5

More Sirens. Might be one of my fav tracks ever by him. Can’t wait for the new EP, etc.

Track 6

Can’t. Get. This. Song. Out. Of. My. Head.

Track 7

There’s no other way to say it: This track goes HARD.

Track 8

Kasum killing it on yet another throwback remix. As a long-time Sum 41 fan, this made me ridiculously happy.

Track 9

This track is weird and ambient but in the absolute best sense.

Track 10

As much as I love the original “Knock You Out,” Mr FijiWiji absolutely killed this chill trap-y remix.


And here’s last week’s playlist. There are some awesome tracks in here, too!

Top 5 Tracks of the Week | 6/29-7/5

Hi guys. It’s Wednesday. What’s up?

Track 1

MitiS‘ “Touch” is an awesome song, whether it’s the original or this vocal mix. I must say, the vocals do give it an extra touch. (Haha, I’m punny).

Track 2

Fareoh can’t put out bad music. It’s just not possible. I think this is one of my favorite tracks I’ve heard in the past few months. And it takes a lot for a new prog house track to catch my ear, but this one did it. Much love to Fareoh.

Track 3

I’ve had “Sad Machine” stuck in my head and have caught myself whistling it time and time again. Just when I thought I’d gotten over how awesome it is, Anamanaguchi came out with this beautiful remix. Obsessed all over again.

Track 4

I was so happy to see new nanobii material! He really delivered with this one. People are comparing it a lot to “Rainbow Road,” but those are clearly people who don’t fully appreciate hardcore and think it “all sounds the same.” This song is a work of art and is full of energy and passion, as are the rest of nanobii’s tracks.

Track 5

I very rarely go out of my way to listen to glitch hop, even though I enjoy it. Buuuuut I love Barely Alive and was intrigued by a glitch hop remix of “Rifle Blow Kiss.” Sure enough, it’s epic. Props to Twine for delivering such an awesome remix.



This amazing EP came out a few weeks ago and I forgot to mention it at the bottom of my last post. So here it is: “I Love You” from Lido. It’s AWESOME.

Top 5 Tracks of the Week | 6/22-6/28

I’ve simply come to the realization that my summer from here on out is going to be solid, chaotic madness. Therefore, my efforts to get this posted on Sundays are going to be hugely reduced.

Last weekend, I visited Steph at Mizzou. This weekend, Ashley’s coming in from Chicago for a weekend of 4th of July insanity, followed by a weekend visiting my sister in Washington DC, followed by Spencer visiting me (hopefully), followed by the Monroe County Fair, followed by Lollapalooza in Chicago. And bam – suddenly it’s August and summer’s over. Oh well. I can’t wait for the next few weeks :)

Track 1

This my absolutely insane. I love that it’s called the “Guitar Hero” remix, because it’s TOTALLY accurate. This remix goes so hard. It’s driving and has a fantastic electro melody on top of the original one. I love it.

Track 2

When DotEXE released Battle Cry, he put this on his Facebook: “Sending out ‘Battle Cry’ to blogs for tomorrow’s release… Now let’s see what genre they all label it as.” While I laughed when I first saw it, it’s pretty true. This track is tricky to categorize. Like all of his music, it encompasses many different music elements. My brain pulled out hints of dubstep, drumstep, drum & bass and electro. When you put those all together, you get… “Battle Cry.” Love it.

Track 3

I thought I was done with “Gecko” remixes after the awesomeness of that Matrix & Futurebound remix, but turns out I was wrong. I also never thought I’d like a house remix of this strongly deep house track, but I do. Elephante did an awesome job of keeping the deep house melody and converting it into more of a festival house banger. Excellent job.

Track 4

I can never say enough about how much I love every single Adventure Club remix. So I won’t even try. Just listen.

Track 5

Oh look, showing more love for Matrix & Futurebound’s endlessly awesome drum & bass. I love this dnb remix to Prydz’s “Liberate.”
