New Obession

I had just spoken on Blackmill in my previous post as an example of a similar sound. So since he just posted this song last week it’s only fitting I throw it up here.

I mostly listen to his original productions which are just so emotional and moving. This remix is just fantastic and the vocals are a perfect accompaniment to Blackmill’s melodic beats.

Carly M Burns – New Obsession (Blacmill Remix)


My buddy sent me this song today and I am definitely enjoying it. Sultry lyrics with some bass that bangs hard but smooth. This song has a touch of Blackmill in it which I love.

I’m not sure why but listening to this song conjures up images of slow motion bass jumpers. It has the epic slow motion feel to it if that makes any sense. Enjoy.

Daughter – Youth (Love Thy Brother Remix)


Melodic Monday

Blackmill – Friend

Blackmill – Home

Blackmill does it again. He is so amazing at capturing so many emotions in his music. Almost every single song of his can bring your to tears… the happy kind. Most can transform you to another dimension. It’s truly amazing.

I’ve talked about him a ton on this site and will continue to do so should he keep sending out top not productions like these two. The first tune was just released last week whereas the second came out in June. Enjoy!


Blackmill just released a track today called Life that he says is about life on earth. He songs are always amazing and bring to mind a ton of emotions that I would associate with the natural world as well as the worlds beyond ours. I love his melodic bass lines… just absolutely beautifu.

“Hush, now we’ll see
How far off I will be –
Predictions on me
Don’t be scared, just be free
And now, you can try
To describe what you see
Look at you,
You’re breathing in
Your life

Blackmill – Life

Back Where We Started

I’m excited to finally check out Gladkill this Friday at 1015 Folsom in San Francisco. His tasteful and melodic take on dubstep is one I enjoy very much. It’s not about abrupt drops and that “shock” factor which isn’t necessarily bad, but just abused. Now about him:

“Boris Gladkikh aka Gladkill has been on a meteoric rise in the electronic music scene since he first began playing live in 2009. Through his tremendous work ethic and tireless touring schedule, Gladkill has already played for massive audiences on the stages of large-scale music festivals such as Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Earthdance and Burning Man, winning over new fans with every stop.
Originally hailing from NYC, Gladkill now resides in Los Angeles and is part of Headtron, where the versatile young producer’s music fits perfectly alongside the other talented artists that make up the collective. Refusing to stick to the comfort of making one style of music, Gladkill has rewarded audiences through the sheer diversity of his songs, as he deftly moves between dominating dance floors with his sexy, crunked-out club bangers, as well as captivating home stereo speakers with more downtempo and melodic material.”

This tune is of course is a more melancholy track with melodic basswork. Enjoy.

Gladkill – Back Where We Started


It’s nice as hell out  today, I’m almost out of work and ready to get down to some funk at The Budos Band tonight. So with that said, here’s some feel good music to get you moving and ready for the weekend.

“Garnering universal respect from peers is not common for DJs-come-producers. U-Tern somehow managed it, and a reputation is steadily building for this humble Vancouverite. Spreading his obvious infatuation for all things music through his blog and weekly radio show, U-Tern is one of those individuals whose passion and drive are enviable. All that is secondary though: immaculate, charming disco-funk tracks are the standout here. U-Tern’s use of real instruments and his exceptional production chops translate into truly authentic pieces of music striking that balance between nostalgia and the 21st century.”

The first track is without a doubt his signature sound, the second, a wonderful edit and the third, a epic banging ballad. Yes, according to him, he makes more than just disco/funk.

Stevie Wonder – Do I Do (U-Tern Edit)
