Kill Paris is a producer whose style is a unique blend of sampling, dubstep, electro, and funk. I’m diggin this track I Do Love You. It’s got a magical quality to it.

My anthem for this sunny April day is from British producer BURNS, whose remix of Marina & The Diamonds Primadonna gives me cool Ratatat guitar-synth vibes. Whether it’s the first day of Spring Quarter and you’re laying out in the backyard or you’re stuck in the office with a case of the Mondays daydreaming of Coachella, this song will make you practically feel the warmth of the heat on your skin.

I am compiling a playlist for my ski trip this weekend, and it is chock-full of Bonobo, whose music has been a longtime staple for my iPod on the slopes. British producer & DJ Simon Green’s music has a magical, psychadelic, jazzy sound that evokes all the calm, inspirational sounds of nature. Nothing Owed is the track that first popped into my head upon thinking of Bonobo, as did his album Dial M For Monkey ... But all his music is unique and amazing. If you’ve never heard it, here are some samples of his most popular tracks. Ketto, Noctuary & Terrapin are particular gems. He is definitely one of my favorite musicians, and also on the top of my list of artists that I have yet to see perform live. If you’re looking for a change of pace from typical EDM, these tracks are guaranteed to bring you peace and calm after a loooong day. At least they do for me :)

Today I bring you a track by Moses Melkonian, a London musician whose voice reminds me of both Sufjan Stevens & Chris Martin. Video by Aaron Leaman. Check out his blog & his other work, this guy has some raw talent.

Today I have some great songs by Belgian/Australian musician Gotye, who will be perfoming this year on Sunday of Coachella. His music videos are awesomely trippy & Tim Burton-esque; his lyrics are a powerful & honest commentary on love, heartbreak, & society.

I’ve heard great things about this London post-dubstep producer, SBTRKT (pronounced Subtract). Unlike typical hard dubstep that first comes to mind, post-dubstep is characterized by a calmer, ambient sound along with atypical methods of combining musical instruments with a dubstep beat. SBTRKT keeps his identity a mystery, choosing to subtract his name from his music, letting it speak for itself. He wears native tribal masks when he performs to conceal his face.
Enjoy this track that I can’t get enough of, called Wildfire. HIT IT.

HARD X Mouth Taped Shut was a secret event held over the past month in several big cities including London, San Francisco, New York City, Stockholm, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Headliners such as Major Lazer (SF), Sebastian Ingrosso (Chicago), Groove Armada/Madeon (London), Miike Snow/Chase&Status/Noisia (Stockholm), and Bloody Beetroots (NYC) weren’t announced until a few days before the event, offering fans who had RSVP’d through e-mail free tickets to the event. I found out on Friday the e-mail list wasn’t being checked and anyone 18+ could basically go and pick up a free ticket until they ran out. I couldn’t make it to the ticket office on Friday night, so I woke up Saturday morning and decided to test my luck. I drove to the Palladium box office and stood in line for a few minutes. As we approached the Security guys who were checking our IDs, I saw that the tickets were running out by the second. I panicked, quickly gave him my ID, and got handed (I kid you not) the LAST TICKET !!! I couldn’t believe my luck. I must have really good karma, because ladies & gentlemen I saw Proxy, James Murphy, and Deadmau5 that night… FO’ FREE.
