Broooooooooooooklynnnnnnnnnnnnn born Body Language has been in my ears for a majority of the past couple weeks.  80's funk disco electro.  Check em out.

I came across this video tonight and it brought back memories of Timbuktu...the Swedish rapper.

No idea what this guy's lyrics are like, but the beats are nice and flow is mothafuckin' tizzy.  

Anyone speak Swedish?  I'm lost in translation, and I like it.

Philadephia born Vacationer started blowing up recently after a backyard performance at SXSW.  Vacationer is the brainchild of lead singer and bassist Kenny Vasoli, formerly of The Starting Line.  Needless to say, he has grown the fuck up from that shitty emo-pop teen bullshit, and now has some legit music.  Their single "Trip" has been getting some attention, but I'm partial to "Everyone Knows" and some of the remixes.  Good music for road tripping.

St. Lucia

This one's for Waser.  The first time I heard St. Lucia, I tuned in at the end of Elevate where the horns start to kick in.  Immediately I was reminded of Waser pulling up in his blue Corolla blasting Lionel Richie - All Night Long.

I love the 80's synth pop sound St. Lucia puts into his music.  I think you'll see what I mean on the opening track of his album When The Night, entitled "The Night Comes Again."  Check it out here:

And of course I have to leave you with a little Lionel Richie

Twin Shadows - Beg for the Night

Twin Shadows is a the synthpop creation of George Lewis Jr. He released his first album under the name Twin Shadows back in 2010  Forget and then his second album in 2012 Confess.

I hadn't listened Twin shadows since his last album came out until yesterday. I was at my friends flat for a late breakfast after picking up a haul at the farmers market and I couldn't help but notice Twin Shadows Confess vinyl playing on the stereo. I had forgotten how good of an album that it was and how nice a compliment to the sea buckthorne mimosas and other grub splayed across the table.

Something about his brand of upbeat broody new wave synthpop always seems to catch my ears. I also can't help but appreciate his music video style. It is like something out of The Warriors and holding tight with a true 80s vibe. Check it out for yourself below.

Justin Timberlake – Cabaret (Feat. Drake) (Prod. Timbaland)


Got a bunch of old girls that I threw away for ya
I been in the gym doing two a days for ya
So I can lift ya up when I do the thang to ya
Do do the thing to ya
Girl, truth be told

Part 2 of 2 of the 20/20 Experience will be hitting the shelves next Monday. JT has already released 2 tracks from the upcoming album, TKO and Cabaret  for free in preparation for the upcoming album release. The most anticipated track off the album is Cabaret ft. Toronto's own Drake. While Drake's minute long verse is not quite a satisfying time slot as one would have hoped for Drake, but I he's on the track, so I can't complain too much. You can also stream the full album for free courtesy of  iTunes.

Heavenly Beat – Complete

Heavenly Beat is a work of former Beach Fossil member John Pena. This is his second album release in as many years. This Texas native is no stranger to making some smooth music as his displays in his new track Complete. The track is off to a good start right off the bat with a mellow, but catchy beat that gets your toes tapping. Then out of no where the steel drum section comes in a takes it to the next level. I have to say that this grew and grew on me through the duration of it and although I had never heard John Pena's solo work before, I am an instant fan, hopefully you will be too!

Chromeo - Over Your Shoulder

All the grass is greener everywhere you look
So many girls our there I could write a book
That one’s ass is leaner
This one’s like Serena
But I think your silhouette is meaner

For all you Chromeo fans out there some good news is around the corner. With no official release date yet, Chromeo is still giving a little sneak peak at what's to come in the near future. Their new album titles 'White Women' has just had its debut track Over Your Shoulder released. In typical Chromeo fashion the song is about letting a girl know that she got what she needs right in front of her in the form of Dave 1 and P-Thug. As you might expect, Chromeo does not disappoint with electro synth pop master piece Over Your Shoulder. So sit back, crank it up and enjoy!t i 


Yeah Boy, the side project of Parachute Youth’s Johnny Castro is gearing up to release debut track ‘Can’t Get Enough’ on 6th October via Baked Goods. The fruitful product of Castro teaming up Stefan Abingdon when the two became acquainted in their hometown of Putney, ‘Can’t Get Enough’ is a fresh and funky, feel-good track.
‘Can’t Get Enough’ combines uplifting vocals with an easy-going beat that just oozes summer vibes. A light funk guitar sample bounces around the beat while a catchy piano melody provides the glue; there’s more to this tune than first appears. Extremely infectious but by no means oversimplified, the blissful melodies and groovy guitar samples coalesce flawlessly to produce this fun, harmonious debut from Yeah Boy.
Johnny and Stefan have already seen wild success in their previous projects, including a number two position on the iTunes music charts and millions of hits on their Youtube channel, respectively. Although just at the start of Yeah Boy’s musical journey, ‘Can’t Get Enough’ will be followed by an EP, which is sure to not disappoint.
