Daddy Fat Sacks and Dre 3 Stacks are probably the most iconic, influential, important and incredible duo to ever grace a stage together when it comes to hip-hop music, possibly all music in general. This is a huge breath of fresh air if it’s true. This is all a rumor currently, but there has been much speculation on a new Outkast album in 2014, and with Coachella festival landing in April of that year, it only makes sense. We’ll keep you posted as more info comes out.
We’re a bit late on posting this one as it came out a couple weeks back, but there is really no timeline on great music. Disclosure dropped this gem right before Halloween, and it is a massive track. This lush house track features some awesome synthesizer work along with some groovy vocal stabs to fill in the air for another hit from the UK brothers. You can listen to the track in its entirety below, and follow Disclosure on their Soundcloud page.
This dropped yesterday, and is a sick track just in time for the weekend! DJs get this in your rotation for your set this weekend. Baauer and RL Grime team up for this one, a slick bass beat that is a part of the Dance (Red) Save Lives 2 Compilation project that will raise proceeds for AIDS treatment and awareness in Africa.
The TRVP LORD returns this Sunday at Neumo’s and Seattle is going to be ready to turn up in rare form come this weekend. Ferg had one of the biggest hits of this year with Shabba ranks, and his debut album Trap Lord released not too long ago and is already a cult favorite. You can catch him live here in Seattle this Sunday, November 10th. Visit Neumo’s for more information.
So as you know, we here at Rich Kids Brand are absolute fiends for good music, and Montreal’s own @Kaytranada has been serving up some fire over this last year. Now he’s making his way to Seattle for the first time ever. Along with his many remixes of artists like Janet Jackson and Danny Brown, he also released his self-titled EP earlier this year, which is a must listen. Kaytranada blends various aspects of electronic music, hip-hop, soul, and funk into his sound and it makes for music that has a timeless feel to it. He’s now on his No Peer Pressure tour, which will makes its way to Seattle’s own Chop Suey tomorrow night! With support from Tony Goods and Jerome LOL, this is going to be a crazy one and just in time for Halloween! Tickets are available HERE. Doors are at 8. We’ll see you there!
In the mean time, enjoy this video of Kaytranada’s infamous Boiler Room set from back in April.
Now this one is a beauty. Arguably the biggest record to release this year, just got some luxury treatment. Daft Punk’s newest work Random Access Memories is now available in a deluxe box set. The box set comes loaded with a double vinyl copy of the album decorated with gold and silver foil labels, as well as a pair of gold and silver plated, metal encased, USB drives containing all the music, bonus content, and an array of videos. You’ll also find schematics for building your own Robot costume and helmet, a 56-page hardcover book of images from recording sessions, and much much more. It is available now and the damage is only $275. If you’re purist of the robots, you gotta grab this one right in time for holiday season.
Seattle’s Decibel Festival celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary this year, and it was quite the event. From over 25,000 attendees, the festival made a big splash in the electronic music community both locally and nationwide. With 68 total performances from acts including, Flosstradamus, Henry Krinkle, Aeroplane, John Tejada and more, Decibel had something for everyone, and with the help of partners like Red Bull Music Academy and KEXP, this year’s festival boasted some pretty incredible secret shows and live workshops and seminars.
We were able to check out a handful of showcases and are more than excited to see what Decibel brings to us for next years festival. Visit the official Decibel site for more from this year’s festival, and even more information about what’s next from the good folks over at dB. Thanks for having us, and we’ll see you next year!
Here are a few upcoming shows from dB Festival:
October 23 – Empire of the sun at The Paramount
October 27 – RL Grime at The Neptune
November 20 – James Blake w/ Nosaj Thing at The Showbox Sodo
Seattle is pushing out great music non-stop as of late, and we’ve got another incredible project to present to you today. The Flavr Blue is one of Seattle’s newest trios, consisting of musicians Lace, Hollis and Parker, and today they released the Bright Vices EP. The 5 track project consists of crispy new wave production complimented by refreshing vocals with a touch of synth to round out the undeniable cocktail of sound. Their iconic approach to musical creation shines brightest with this new project, pun intended. Hollis glows over tracks like No Remedy and We Can Go Blind, while Parker and Lace match her shine on tracks like Surrender and Magnetic, the latter of which Esquire Magazine featured today upon it’s release.
The downtempo dish, Hearts Racing, is the song that really caught my attention upon first listen. This song truly captures not only the dynamic style The Flavr Blue has, but it also showcases the versatility of all three of them. Parker’s haunting, slow grind breakbeat that transitions into an uptempo bridge, only to drop you back into the clouds is effortless and elegant. Hollis’ airy vocals are right at home on the track, and as she says in her verse, she has you chasing the high. Lace’s sultry entrance into the song freezes time for a moment, and actually allows you to visualize what you’re hearing if that makes sense.
Overall the entire project is an great body of work, and an excellent listen no matter if you’re a fan of R & B, Downtempo, Ambient, House, New Wave, Pop, Electro, Indie, or whatever else you want to call it. The Flavr Blue has arrived, and they’re here to stay. You can see download Bright Vices for a limited time for FREE from The Flavr Blue’s official site, or you can purchase it for only $3 on iTunes. Show your support and enjoy the jams.
Banksy strikes again, as he visited New York City this weekend. He set up a pop up shop in the city’s famed Central Park, in an effort to dupe the masses. The pieces all had an estimated value of over $40,000 and were all available for the one time only price of….$60. That’s right, 60 bones. See for yourself.
