Ouch ouch you're on my hair and other fun games to play in the dark. (But actually just check out this up and coming Calgary DJ)
Here's a neato little soundcloud playlist I made for your enjoyment. There's a little bit of everything in there. Some chill electro house, hip hop, new age and indie pop. There's some tried and true ladywood favourites and some new up and comers too. Hope you enjoy! -C
Here are words straight from the Borneland brothers themselves. They describe their monthly mix 'Vocal Hook,' way better than I can! -R
"Quite a few elements affect the movement on the dancefloor. One of the essentials is a solid base defining the moves and making sure that even the most tone-deaf person able to keep stroke. Movement is one thing, but how do you make people remember the songs they've been dancing to. How do you make sure, that the dancing crowd hum this certain track on their their way home. Basically, how do you make sure, that this track is stuck in every single persons mind the day after?
The vocal is what you remember – the simplicity and personal touch can lead you to a feeling of ecstacy, joyfulness and happiness. The perfect vocal have the ability to make you feel as the happiest person in the world, make you fly high up in the air and sometimes, make the world more meaningful. Maybe you know all these things, but just did not realise that you knew it. Well, now you know. And now you may question, why we feel the need to tell you this now? That is of course because we are bringing together the last parts of our EP and this is packed with great vocals by our friends and biggest idols. Every single one of the people featuring our album have somehow touched us in the way we just described, making our world more meaningfull, and hopefully the same applies to you soon.
Coming back to this months mixtape, which contains groovy bass, all the essentials for a nice atmosphere and last but not least, this months choice of our favorite vocals. Combined to attract your attention, wake your curiosity and seduce you in this first month of spring."
I'm digging this cover of this Tears for Fears classic. Bear Mountain has been consistently producing really engaging music for a few years now and I hope 2014 brings them the larger scale they deserve. Enjoy! -C
