Phenomenal Track; “Keep It Rollin”
Dec 2011 01

While I’m usually a semi- witty, positive person on FM, today has been pretty brutal.

This damn cold has turned me into that creepy kid from Hey Arnold who was dubbed the heavy breather – I’m quite literally disgusting. So shouts to SITR (via Earmilk) who posted this phenomenal song, “Keep It Rollin”, as it will be the driving force in getting me through the rest of the work day.

Y Luv comes at us from sunny Cali, specifically USC (my potential grad school choice), where these five artists came together to produce an eclectic yet ethereal sound; Lead singer, Freddy Janney, has an infectious voice that is not only powerful, but maintains an indie-esque vibe at the same time. This is certified feel good music that covers the range of listening effects – from presenting a sort of calming effect, to causing you to be reflective, then jumping to the other end of the spectrum, and pumping you up for a night out.

I’m incredibly excited to see how their music progresses, and strongly encourage you all to keep your eyes, and ears, on these guys. MUST DOWNLOAD

ps – not to sound like a copycat, but definitely hear some Bono in that crescendo.

Throwback Thursday

To go with the theme of the week, I struggled to find a throwback song to write about this week.

Then it happened. Britney came on.

And not just any Britney.

The original Britney.

I was in fifth grade when “…Baby One More Time” came out; approximately 11 years of age when Ms. Spears impacted my life. And let’s just cut the crap, whether or not you want to admit it, everyone, and I mean, EVERYONE, loved pre knee-surgury, pigtail dancing, virginal Britney Spears.
Of course, at the time I had no idea what this song was about…”like why did Britney want to be hit by someone? I like her pom poms. I like her dance moves. I’m gonna learn those.” …and later on 100% regret having home videos of me attempting those dance routines, but that was the extent of my thought process with her.

But oh how wonderful that song was…I remember we were on a field trip to Sturbridge Village (wow Dux, could you be more lame?) and we had taken a boat ride around a pond – sweet- and I sat in the back with my 5th grade boyfriend. Before we got back to the bus he gave me a ring, nbd, probably cost a smooth $1.75 from the gift shop.. Once we were headed back to civilization, we bumped this song when it came on the radio; I vividly remember everyone screaming along to the words, which in retrospect is kind of disturbing, but nonetheless, was my earliest memory of Britney. Bitch.

Whoa wait a minute – I thought I was on a tropical vacation. But I’m actually sick in bed…

Thanks to Keljet’s Hawaiian themed remix of Coldplay’s, “U.F.O.” I got some true feel good music in my system. The bubbly beat is relaxing and fun and really emphasizes the mellowness behind Chris Martin’s voice. Listening to it is like sitting under a palm tree, drinking a girly pina colada, toy umbrella and all..Now if only I actually was in some warm weather…

It’s no secret that Collin McLoughlin does incredible covers, specifically acoustic jams, and he has undertaken the challenge to produce more original stuff, as we saw on Stark Perspective; We’ve seen some electro tracks here and there but “Is It Love” is his best effort in that genre so far. Although, I’m not completely sold on it, I still believe it’s a step in the right direction, and it feels like a true electro-dance, ‘hear it in the clubs’, single.
After hearing Sex Ray Vision’s production of “Blender”, Collin reached out to switch up the production a bit, and he added lyrics and a melody to make a dance/pop song for your dancing pleasure. Hit it uppp.

Everyone needs a Friday night pump up..especially us working people, who need a second wind after that Friday afternoon power nap.

Doug Bogan mixed a ton of top 40 songs to create this mashup, “Raining California Girls”; And while there’s a little too much Bruno Mars and Katy Perry for my taste, I still think it was really well done, and gets better throughout. I can’t resist “Let It Rock” as well as Florence Welch’s voice, so those two along with “We Found Love” were my favorite parts included in the track.

Have a fantastic evening people, and be on the lookout for the FM November playlist coming this weekend.

Track list:
Raining (Extended Mix) – Kaskade

ICE (Original Mix) – Dada Life & Kaskade

Fresh Scream – AI Bizzare

Shake it Out (Benny Benassi Remix) – Florence & The Machine

Acapellas:
Just the Way You Are – Bruno Mars

California Gurls – Katy Perry

Let It Rock – Kevin Rudolf

Shake it Out – Florence & The Machine

We Found Love – Rihanna

Just Dance – Lady Gaga

Normally I’d just wait until tomorrow to give you a stellar Mashup Monday song, but hopefully this will give you some encouragement to continue your weekend festivities on this fine, Sunday Funday.

As the year comes to a close there are two mashup artists that everyone looks forward to their year in review mashup, and one is Mashup Germany; “Top of the Pops 2011 (What The Fuck)” takes all your radio pop hits and unabashedly makes a perfectly mashed mash up. So put away your music snob persona, and indulge in this guilty pleasure.

Fresh Musikk presents it’s 7th playlist, “Occupy Dance Floor”.

November was hands down, one of the best months for music all year; We saw albums from, Drizzy, Childish Gambino, Mac Miller – and mixtapes from, OnCue, Mike Posner, B.o.B. – and incredible singles and leaks from other artists on the rise. So to say it was difficult to narrow my 239 new songs from November down to 25, would be an incredible understatement.

As the holiday season approaches, listen to this mix, chill out, vibe out, party on, and occupy that dance floor.

Music Video Monday

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAcCTi5z2k4

PropaneLV drops off a last minute beat that turned out to be a smooth hip hop/r&b track called “Lights On”’ Dj Frank-DuX handled production, while PropaneLV goes over the beat, and takes a chance with some vocals on the hook. The easy beat gets your body moving, and I was pleasantly surprised with the catchy chorus.
Although the video depicts a typical party scene, they played around with the effects to spice it up – here’s how it went down…

”..our friends at Nasty, LLC gave us a call and said something to the tune of “we’ve got dope house in the west hills for an evening, wanna shoot a music video?”. Dj Frank-DuX sent over some beats, we laid down a party record, and the rest is history.”
