Have You Seen The Light?

Pretty Lights remind me of a mix of RJD2 and Thievery Corporation. He tends to blur the lines between genres quite effortlessly whilst still remaining original. Pretty Lights's music forms a combination of "glitchy hip-hop beats, buzzing synth lines, vintage funk, soul samples, and sometimes grime." Just relax and listen to some great sampling. I'm absolutely hooked!!

Pretty Lights - Still Night
Pretty Lights - Hot Like Sauce
Pretty Lights - Looking For Love (But Not So Sure)
Pretty Lights - I Can See It In Your Face
Pretty Lights - Something's Wrong

The next song is pretty long but brilliant. If you enjoy it enough and can make it to minute number six, you will enjoy a great little sample.

Pretty Lights - High School Art Class

Pretty Lights also does some brilliant mash-ups but that's for another time. Childish Gambino and Hoodie Allen up next, I promise...

Day vs. Night

I've come across quite a bit of new music recently and thought it be a good idea to start sifting through them for all the goodies.The list of songs below are some of these songs that stuck with me. I have divided the list into day and night, day being more chilled dance whilst the night songs are the 4am songs that ends your night.

Robortom - Paganini Rocks Ft. Au Revoir Simone
Marina And The Diamonds - I Am Not A Robot (Clock Opera Remix)

As you might have noticed, I've discovered Au Revoir Simone and Clock Opera. Brilliant!! I dunno if the next song should be at  then end of the "day" list or the start of the "night" list or if it even belongs in this post but I enjoy it and it's not often The Bee Gees will make it into a post so I had to take the opportunity.

Bee Gees - Stayin' Alive (Teddybears Remix)


Chromeo - Tenderoni (MSTRKRFT Remix)
Don Diablo - Animale Ft. Dragonette (Datsik Dubstep Remix)
Rusko - Everyday (Netsky Remix)

My next post will be on Childish Gambino and Hoodie Allen!
