Indie Playlist: Oct.10, 2012

Cue gentle bb October breeze; it feels nice and the sun’s a lil more bashful than usual~

You’re heading home after a long day of werk and your thoughts start to wander. . .

Just wanna come home to u and pass time listenin’ by to chill beats & maxin’ out relaxin’ — nothing fancy, just spinnin’ da sweet indie playlist dat u know I wanna hear.

Hoooooooo girl, u givin’ me goosebumps. I #feels pretty good now, jus’ wish I could spend more time wichu Nature. Wish I was wrapped up in a hammock sippin’ on some yung coconut milk while getting a playful massage from u.

But u know da game, it’s not played that way. Jus’ gotta stiff upper-lip it :< but keep da chin up cause it’s just another day bru and deez chill tunes is 4 u.

01. Werkha – Le Roitelet

As you’re winding down this fine Monday, just wanted to make sure your journey was a nice one. If it was poppin’, keep it fresh!

If it was rough, wind down with us. Don’t mind the traffic. Hop in Le Roitelet on your way back home and think of all the good things to come.

02. Dreams West feat. Tokyo Hands – </3

Like the 9-9-99 promise that Sega Dreamcast was gonna rock ur pre-HD graphics brain out, did you feel your Nintendo/Monopoly board game starting to feel irrelevant?

You finally get the Dreamcast and luh da games but realize the controller’s too big and will prolly give you carpal tunnel. Also it costs like $50 to play $25 for $9.99 a month & useless accessories namean. A n y w a y, after years of non-use your parents pack away your Derpcast.

Fast-forwarding to contemporary iLife, your hipster acquaintances want 2 play Bead Warrior: Master of the Beads cause they saw it trending on Tumblr and you wanted to oblige so they’d stfu for a sec while you regain your chillmax levels.

Dreamcast on. You secretly wretch at the sight of the early 21st century graphics as if they were 70s porn (so much hair), but you still got your game face on cause y’ain’t no fool.

You pack a bowl/sip chai latte or whatever calms ur shit and everyone finally kinda gets on the same page — OK, now you’re feel’n pretty chill.

But you still can’t help but question:

Damn son, where’d I find this?

03. Arnold – WRLD

In the search for true post-all #feels, electronic beat pioneers like Arnold and his M|O|D brus turn up the 808 instrumentals it takes to bring WRLD peace to all.

That, or lovin’ u is like workin’ dat drum kit 24/7 to find your sweetest heartbeat.

04. yukibeb – as we float

Definitely wanna queue up as we float and pretty much the rest of this ‘beb’s SoundCloud in today’s indie playlist

Yukibeb’s got that love from Tokyo that has real appreciation for the tru #feels from hip hop instrumentals.

Luh how she takes care of my feel-good vibes one loop at a time.

05. Tapes – Apparition

When you’re sitting alone & zoning in and out of what’s trill for you, do you get visited by ghosts? I speak of those apparitions of feelings past that remind u of times when you know you were feeling tru & real feelings?

Yea I mean, just listen to deez songs. Do they make your spine tingle? Your hair stand on end? Your butt fart?

06. Kosmo Kat – Broken Fan

Honestly doe I’m always tryna tune into my surroundings. The (Huntington) Beach vibes in this track got me feelin’ a lil nostalgic for gathering ’round the (digital/real/hypothetical) hearth wif good company and share some proper Cheers!

07. Sam Flax – Another Day

In other words, here’s to another day (wichu?)


Indie Playlist: Sept. 24, 2012

O HI glad you’re back for more Indie Playlist. Check out deez presents Sweetest Drip brought to your door!

via it doesn’t look like it but my tail’s waggin’ doe

01. Moullinex – Kassette

Check out Português DJ/producer Moullinex with his latest maravilhoso releases! Cool thing about brus like Moullinex, they’ll play tracks like Kassette at numerous live settings and give ‘em away for free-fitty as a “thank you for chillin’ hard with me and I hope we can continue to have nice things together” gift.

If you’ve had any inkling towards the nu-disco & house scene, you’ve probably seen his name pop up here and there on original productions and remixes from equally awesome artists. Moullinex is finally prepping his debut album Flora, due out late October via must-peep indie label Gomma Records.

02. Sango – Da Rocinha

Ever since Diplo, Jonas Rathsman, and other like-minded producers spread knowledge about Brazilian favela booty beats (baile funk AKA funk carioca) throughout DJ/production culture, it’s hard to stop fantasizing about base-jumping off of Cristo Redentor drenched in celebratory 2014 (World Cup)/2016 (Olympics) caipirinhas.

I can’t explain how much I’ve been wanting these sounds to come together. I don’t remember exactly how I found out about Sango (Sweetest Drip OG I’m lookin’ at chu ♥), but I’m sho as fuq glad I’ve got these beats in my collection now. Behold: 808-driven/no-hands clapping dance music excellence.

“After spending time just searching for music outside the US, I luckily landed on some of the most influential, unique and most developed sound that has been out for quite some time. The sound I speak about is Brazil’s own, baile funk or what they call it, “funk carioca”. This mixtape is more of a sound study of baile funk. I felt this sound is still somewhat untouched in some music scenes. I wanted to give my interpretation of the music, and was also curious of how baile funk’s distinct loops and provoking sounds would sound layer under my ideas. This EP is loud and real.

The name Da Rocinha simply means, in Brazilian Portuguese, “Of Rocinha”. Rocinha is one of the most popular favelas in Brazil, which is located in Rio De Janeiro. Rocinha pretty much birth the baile funk sound and what I want to show is how Rocinha influenced me.”Sango

03. Hemingway – Joy Stick

It’s inevitable that music makers who grew up playin’ vidya gamez will end up injecting those lovable/addicting 8-64 bit ditties into today’s production standard. There are many contemporary artists trying to conceptualize/personalize tunes based on their favorite video game soundtracks; Groundislava and Noms especially come to mind outside of the chiptune genre.

Our bru Hemingway is no exception with his latest tune Joy Stick, which I could see used as a perfect BGM for an avant-garde porno or a simply a go-to track for when you wanna kick back and let these funky bleep bloops soothe your soul.

04. Jonas Rathsman – W4W

Since summertime nearing its end according to back to school sales and the sudden lack of massive music festivals on a moment’s notice, might I suggest pulling out that beach chair for a couple more uses?

W4W by Jonas Rathsman is an essential farewell-to-summer tune, especially with its luscious steel-drum assisted buildup and signature vibetastic vocals. If anything’s troubling you these days — like if you couldn’t finish that beautiful bb tan in time (ooooooof baby baby) — maxchill with an artist who’ll never do you dirt.

05. Knxwledge – klemintine|taype

Lemme end with a kiss on da forehead for all my beautiful bbs out there. Finna spread that peace, love, and Knxwledge.

lovin’ u~ lovin’ u~ 어떡해 what should I do?
