New Album: The Deadbeats - Soft Focus

The Deadbeats released a new album a few weeks ago titled "Soft Focus." I got into The Deadbeats many years ago after hearing a few of their tracks featured on the Wax On Records compilation series (founded by downtempo legend Nightmares on Wax). This album is more of the same and more of what I love - downtempo, chilled percussion grooves with intriguing vocal samples. Check it out on Bandcamp:

*NEW MUSIC* --> Odesza - Light (feat. Little Dragon)

Two of my favorite artists come together on this beautiful mid tempo track. Love how Little Dragon's vocals sound over Odessa's chill percussion and beats. Out on Odesza's album 'In Return' on September 18, mark your calendars!

#ElementsNYC Festival (BangOn!NYC) Playlist - Liquid Stranger, Eduardo Castillo, Autograf, Minnesota, and more

The Elements Festival in NYC was a great party with amazing DJ and production talent. The festival was set in industrial Brooklyn among what felt like a construction site and rock quarry. It was a truly unique music and art experience - the scenery set it apart and the music took it to amazing levels of dance and energy. Check out this playlist of DJs who performed. 

My favorites were Liquid Stranger (bass, dubstep) and Eduardo Castillo (deep house). I missed Autograf (deep, tropical house) but I've heard he's really good live - wish I could seen him.

I played a really fun and feel good funky set last week for the STOKED 10 year anniversary and collaboration event with MOMA curated artist James Victore, Zoo York brand and Tattly. There's a lot of funk and hip hop remixes in here, plus some summer glitch and a taste of tropical house. Enjoy!
