Kai Straw – The Recipe

Toothpick was just the beginning of a new direction for Kai Straw. After the release of his LP, he didn’t waste any time getting started on the next album. The first single off the upcoming project is a Summer ready hit called “The Recipe.”

“The Recipe” sees Kai Straw expanding on his unique, unparalleled indie-pop style. Kai kicks up a raw, but catchy sound that slowly wraps itself around your heart and soul with its intimate mood. Kai’s humility seeps through the memorable lyrics and tasteful production for a timeless love song. All the ingredients come together for something truly extraordinary to set the tone for the rest of GUN.

Stream “The Recipe” on Spotify

Kai Straw is the name of one of San Francisco’s best kept secrets.  The humble creative is known for a dynamic sound that has taken him from hip-hop producer, to emcee, to poet, to singer-songwriter, to one of the most unique R&B / soul vocalists on record.  Kai’s diversity in sound is matched only by his eclectic taste beyond the mic; as the director of his own videos, as a writer, musician and producer – he seems to be a modern renaissance man expressing panoramic talent across the arts in addition to his headlining forte.

Kai Straw is set to release his album, GUN, through his own imprint Tenth Gate Records. Complete with 10 songs, GUN sees Kai Straw levying his singing talent to new heights through a multitude of varied records; each possessing a kaleidoscopic range of influence across a broad spectrum of genres – from indie and soul, to funk and R&B, to EDM and hip-hop. Produced by James The Bear, this LP builds on the sound of Kai’s previous album Toothpick, but is characterized by a tone that is as eclectic as it is sure-footed.  If Toothpick can be considered Kai’s first step into the foray of the pop music landscape, then his newest record, aptly titled GUN, is his sonic boom.

In 2016, Kai Straw released his highly anticipated album Toothpick, whose sounds caught fans by surprise in the best way possible. His most successful album to date, Kai Straw reached fans around the world by locking in support from Spotify through their Best Fresh Finds of 2016, as well as seeing the single “Hurricane” reach #2 on their Global Viral Chart. The album received support from entertainment figures like Demi Lovato and MTV’s Khylin Rhambo, as well as tastemaking music blogs including Indie Shuffle, Music Ninja, Girl Underground Music and more.

An-Ten-Nae Releases Deep Bass, Full Length Album, ‘Medicine’

San Francisco based An-Ten-Nae releases new full length album, Medicine, and gets huge feature in The Huffington Post, Medicine debuted at #25 on the iTunes Electronic list, just under Flume and Bonobo, as well as top 10 on Bandcamp.

An-Ten-Nae has also revealed “Wildflower In Bloom,” an intricately layered masterpiece with deep underpinnings, and another reason the album Medicine is being so widely received.

Medicine is the 3rd album from Bay Area electronic music pioneer An-ten-nae, and pushes forth a new Deep Bass sound emerging from the west coast. Intricately balanced deep grooves flow under a cinematic landscape fused with deep captivating melodies and meticulous production values. The track listing itself leads you into a world where sound has deeper meanings. Medicine leaves behind the familiar Big Room EDM sounds found in over abundance in dance music today. Instead this album takes bass in a deeper, more thoughtful direction which can be compared to the difference between Big room versus Deep House. Polyrhythmic grooves accentuate deep, old school UK Dubstep bass layers woven with 808s in a modern aesthetic, that is quite unique and refreshing.

#MusicIsMedicine

Track List:
1. This Is My Life
2. Sweet Like Honey Suckle
3. Je T’aime
4. Dreams Will Come Just Be
5. Under a Star Filled Night
6. Stargazing Under the Moonlight
7. Walking with Wild Flower in Bloom
8. Kia Toa

“I believe people want listening music – even on the dancefloor!”

Aleksander Vinter, the Norwegian artist who in the last 7 years has released over 20 recordings under different project titles like Savant, Vinter In Hollywood, and Blanco to name a few, is best known dance-music culture’s most unpredictable, impossible-to-pigeonhole enigma. With releases as diverse as they are experimental, that reputation has remained constant and well earned throughout a madly prolific career spanning numerous singles, remixes, nominations for Norwegian Grammys, and 11 (!) full-length albums.

On the one hand, Savant deploys the kind of speaker-shredding bangers that have made him one of dance music’s most popular rising stars: his dynamic live set drives crowds at mega-festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival into abandon, yet Savant refuses to conform to EDM genre demarcations – or any, for that matter.

“‘Electronic Dance Music’ is the most generic term, which doesn’t apply to what I do,” Vinter explains of the sound he’s dubbed “complextro.” “It’s all about putting everything into one pot of musical ether. I don’t have a rigid formula; my music manages to be comfortable and uncomfortable at the same time. I like breaking rules – that’s where new stuff emerges.” Indeed, this is not your grandmother’s moombahton: 8-bit videogame soundtracks, trap, disco, house, electro, classical, ‘90s big-beat electronica – even ‘70s glam rock and ‘80s new wave finds its way into his sonic odysseys. “I like how a group like Queen is very theatrical and harmonized,” Vinter says. “That epic feeling, plus the style of David Bowie, and the spunk of Prince – that’s what I’m going for, but via dance music.

His fan base is as religious as his music is diverse. His live act is a live interactive set of music of his own creation, peppered with favorites, that never repeats from show to show. Each show it truly unique but tied together by his tendency to share his newest music with his fans. Savant wants to create the same feelings that early DJ’s would evoke on their dance floors, that feeling of discovery and seeding the question, “WHAT SONG WAS THAT!? I NEED TO HAVE IT.”

Josh Gard, also known as Figure, has become a household name in bass music with a catalog that spans over 5 years and over 100 tracks. Figure is best known for his signature, heavy bass sounds, but his music has crossed various genres as heard on his most recent full-length LP, Gravity (2015, DOOM MUSIC). Figure also runs DOOM MUSIC which originally started as an outlet for his own music, but in 2016 will see the release catalog expand to include original releases from other artists for the first time, in addition to the highly anticipated Monsters 7.

Figure is back with his 7th annual Monsters release, seven brand new songs including guest appearances by Bare, Dack Janiels, & Code Pandorum. Following up his 2015, 66-track digital box set Monsters 6.66 this album is straight to the point, heavy bass and classic, monsters-inspired sound that Figure has crafted over the years. Having toured extensively throughout his career, you can hear the desired intent for his music to be heard in clubs and on large festival stages across the globe. Monsters 7 ranges from Dubstep & Drumstep all the way to heavy metal influenced sounds with live instruments played by Figure himself.

Figure started 2016 on the Paradox Tour with Excision, running through over 60 cities in just under three months playing for sold out crowds across North America, making solo trips to Europe and Australia in the spring and is now on tour again across North America headlining the Outta This World Tour withProtohype ( #OTWTour ). The touris a collection of weekend club dates, playing every major US market, including but not limited to New York, Los Angeles, Denver, Houston, San Francisco, Montreal, Vancouver, Orlando, Atlanta and many more. Figure will also make solo headline appearances this Halloween at Chicago’s Freaky Deaky & Maryland’s Nightmare Festival, ending 2016 with trips back to Europe to headline stages at I Love Techno Festival & Splash upon the end of the #OTWTour.

This Halloween Figure’s music will once again be featured at Universal’s Hollywood Horror Nights theme park in LA, having been featured in the theme park now for three years in a row. Figure’s song “Monster Mania” was featured in 2016’s brand new season of Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s episode titledBeing Frank, as well as various other Film/Tv placements in previous years.

Warden Debuts “Do It Like This” for Insomniac’s ‘Discovery Project Releases’

insomniac_2016_dp_release_warden_do_it_like_this_art_1920x1080_r01

Electronic Artist Warden has made his Discovery Project debut with his minimal trap single “Do It Like This”.

The percussive synth and droning vocal that occupy the top end allow enough space to let the drums speak—and then his bass comes roaring. A dirty buzzsaw just thick enough to provide some low-end grit to the mix swirls around an array of fantastic edits and gangsta vocals.

Download Warden’s “Do It Like This” FREE!

The process for “Do It Like This” was actually a pretty quick one. I love slower, trappy tracks you can throw in the middle of playing house to switch up the vibe, so I just decided to make one. I basically found the weird vocal noise you hear in the beginning and just tweaked the hell out of it. The rest just flew together that day. I was listening to EPROM, Alesia, and Alix Perez at the time, so that sound was really inspiring me.Warden
