Check out some tracks you will probably hear this weekend below, and put them headphones on cause you might get in trouble doing the booty-quake in the office.
Le1f – “Sup”
Le1f (aka Khalif Diouf) is a New York-based musician with an impressive arsenal of talents. Dancer-turned-rapper/producer, Diouf manages to balance avant-garde style with a keenness for popular aesthetic. “Sup” is featured on his recently released “Hey” EP, which is certain to get some heavy rotation on our summer playlist.
The Faint – “Evil Voices”
2014 seems to be the year of the comeback album from some of our favorite alternative acts who rose to prominence in the 90s and early 00s. Naturally we were stoked about the recent release of Doom Abuse by The Faint. “Evil Voices” is a whip-cracking addition to their dance-punk legacy and a perfect soundtrack for the darkness of the dancefloor.
MC GAFF E – “Beast Desire”
MC GAFF E is equal parts musician and performance artist. Her look could be described as the lovechild between Lisa Frank and Mad Max. Each of her videos shows a hallucinogenic deluge of color with a complex kaleidoscope of influences. It’s pure techno-confection and we’re enjoying every bite.
Wundercastle – “Bring Me Joy”
With the sun out later and humidity creeping in, lean into the heat instead of trying to fight it! “Bring Me Joy” is the perfect track for those endlessly steamy days and Wundercastle’s brand of hazey electronica makes us excited to sweat through it all.
Dominique Young Unique – “Throw It Down”
Dominique Young Unique is a former model and the latest lyrical powerhouse to hit the music scene. “Throw It Down” gets our blood flowing and legs moving. We’re not doctors but we’re pretty sure just listening to this song has cardiovascular benefits. Also let’s all be sure to applaud the sheer skill of her 2-man twerking crew!
