Syd Arthur – “Hometown Blues” (Psychemagik Remix)

Pro tip: if you’re an artist in the market for a remixer, get Psychemagik.
With a Midas-like touch, the UK duo have the uncanny knack for turning any kind of source material into dancefloor gold.
Their latest act of remix-wizardry is a reworking of Syd Arthur’s “Hometown Blues”, transforming this psychedelic rock tune into a bass-heavy cosmic roller.

What We Talk About When We Talk About Fischerspooner

Posted July 31, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,261 views]

Earlier this week writer Tricia Romano wrote a piece for Red Bull Music Academy chronicling the surreal rise of early aughts artpop phenomenon Fischerspooner.
It’s a dizzying trip to down memory lane to a pre-9/11 New York art and music scene that I remember fondly experiencing from several hours away in Philadelphia.
A portrait of the dawn of the digital age rubbing up against the end of the analog …

I’ve always been particularly drawn to how, of any of the art forms, music has the ability to coexist and expand upon the other arts, from the visual to the literary to the cinematic.  And for me this is one of the great pleasures of our Guest DJ series. 
Getting to understand how music affects and influences non-music-based artists is always enlightening, whether their …

Nick Hakim: Artist You Should Know

Posted July 29, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,495 views]

I don’t like “neo-soul.”
Not because I don’t think it can’t be as good as “traditional” “soul” or “RnB,” but rather because as a genre, as a name/label, it’s just mad goofy to me.

Jamestown Revival have been on the road all year, touring behind their debut full length.
With stops at Bonnaroo and other big festivals under their belt, it was time the adopted Angelenos (native Texans) brought the show back home.

There were a bunch of fans in the crowd singing along …
