Los Angeles based duo Bósa is excited to announce the release of their debut EP titled Eyes of the Jaguar. Bósa represents the combination of the distinct talents from veteran producer/DJ Stephan Jacobs and world-renowned musician Sunev Lovechild. The dynamic release from the promising duo eloquently combines tribal house beats, buoyant synths, and hypnotic rhythms with melodic vocals.

The duo takes listeners on a spiritual journey replete with exotic instruments, danceable grooves, and atmospheric soundscapes. The lead single “Behemoth” uses vocals taken from a field recording taken in India and intertwines it with global flavors, mystical elements, and a myriad of organic rhythms. A big highlight of Eyes of the Jaguar is the powerful percussion provided by Sunev, providing Bósa with its own unique and unparalleled style.

Bósa’s debut EP Eyes of the Jaguar delivers a spiritual experience that deeply resonates with subtle beauty and primal potency.

Kittrix had this to say about the track, “It’s that feeling when you find yourself at that point in a relationship where you know something is up. When you feel like you no longer know the person. So much so that you wonder who you are and how you got here. That feeling of tension, and it’s open to interpretation whether you love it or hate it. You’re along for the ride.”

13 Reasons Why actress Anne Winters and former boy-band member Taylor Beau just teamed up to drop an infectious new tune titled “Faded.” This slow jam speaks to the pitfalls of the modern dating scene and the ever evasive love letters (or texts) that come from secret admirers when they’re under the influence. As Anne and Taylor share the spotlight equally, this tune takes on an anthemic quality that I can definitely see carrying us through the summer. Give it a listen and vibe out to this one.

Something about dirty bass music just never gets old, especially when I’m in the mood to dance. For that reason, I’m pretty stoked on this new track titled “Vodoo” from Lookas and Edison Cole which rings true to the classic dubstep x trap genre blend that so many revel in. An eastern melody leads to an enormous drop that crashes into an ocean of grinding bass, gurgling snyths, hyphy vocal chops. I’m heading out to a party tonight and get wait to see the dancefloor go up when I play this track. Check it out and enjoy the weekend everyone!

Each year, Lightning in a Bottle creates a getaway to all of the guests who choose to join in on the experience. Residing this year in Kern County, the new Buena Vista location proved itself worthy of housing this enchanting affair; and although this year’s edition of Lightning in a Bottle has now come to an end, the magic and wonder that surrounds it lingers in the mind’s and heart’s of its visitors for much longer than its 5 day duration.

Most events are characterized simply by stunning lineups or picturesque locations, however, Lightning in a Bottle not only curates a list of incredible artists from all genres, but also caters its event to the minds, bodies, and souls of its guests. Starting the day with a yoga class or meditation session is just one of the ways guests can choose to start their day at Lightning in a Bottle. With dozens of classes to choose from, all guided by professionals from the yoga community, a moment for zen and clarity is never too hard to find. To satisfy the creatives, LIB also offers opportunities to craft and build. From bracelets, to journals, hats, or paintings, all one needs to do is bring their creative energy to create a masterpiece, and the rest is provided. In addition, and aiming to stimulate the mind, a plethora of workshops and classes are also available to indulge in. Whether attendees want to immerse themselves in the talks of world-renowned experts and visionaries, or they want to take a more active approach with a hands-on learning seminar, there is an activity for everyone to enjoy.

Sprinkled throughout the grounds of the festival were the stages which provided the soundtrack to Lightning in a Bottle. Its three main stages included Thunder, characterizes by its color, canopied ceiling; to Lightning with its subtle yet entrancing production; and of course the Woogie whose funky design complemented the beats emanating all night from the stage. The music, however, did not stop at these three areas. Waiting to be found were a handful of quirky stages that took on forms ranging from school busses and ice cream trucks to tea shops and theaters. Regardless of the shape, color, size, or location of the stage, people were dancing, laughing, vibing and enjoying the company of those around, regardless of whether they were strangers or friends. On the dance floor one can truly feel the strong sense of community that is formed inside the boundaries of this event and it is one of the dominating forces behind the beauty and charm of LIB.

It always seems as though the moments we love never seem to last long enough; and while we wish we could quite literally bottle up some of the electricity felt over the course of this event to take home and enjoy later, the memories made alongside so many incredible people (old and new) are the only things we can take back with us (along with maybe a pound of scattered glitter and some mud). After a year such as this one, it is difficult to imagine not returning for many more to come.

Join in the festivities next year and find out why Lightning in a Bottle becomes home to so many each year.

Today, Grammy award winning musician Tom Korkidis, better known by his artistic moniker ‘Slowall‘, celebrates the release of his latest single “Comeback Kit” and we were lucky enough to snag the premiere. Stream it on your favorite platform here: https://lnk.to/comebackkit

The track is a magnificent mix of vintage synth textures and a massive modern production handled by none other than Scott Solter (St.Vincent, Spoon). Every element of the composition, from the percussion to the synths, to the vocal itself has been blessed with a retro futurism quality that is sure to leave even the most discerning of listeners in a state of nostalgic bliss.

Korkidis’ attributes his sound to the menagerie of musical influences bestowed to him by his stepparents. They would play him everything from Debussy to Genesis and everything in between, which lead the artist to cut his teeth playing Jazz, then classical and later indie rock. With “Comeback Kit” Korkidis gracefully makes the transition into full on experimental-pop, and it’s clear to see his musical pedigree has paid off in spades.

They say that first impressions count double, and if that’s the case then I’m double plus excited for the rest of his forthcoming EP destroyer which will drop this summer. Slowall is clearly one to watch in 2019.

For Long Beach residents such as myself, it’s really not too often that we get large scale music festivals or events of the like that cater to the softer side of our music taste. After getting a taste of the good stuff at Music Tastes Good last year, and seeing the rise of events thrown by Goldenvoice in recent times, I had a gut feeling that the LBC had another promising event coming its way.

Needless to say, the original announcement of Just Like Heaven caused our jaws to drop collectively. The combination of indie favorites as well as the more obscure acts, and acts that we had not seen billed in ages and having it in Long Beach threw us all for a loop.

When the time finally arrived for the festival to take place, the weather was absolutely perfect. I was not only excited to see some of my favorite indie and alternative bands, but to go to my first event at the Queen Mary park, a place I haven’t visited since I was very young. Since you had to cross a bridge to get to the area, it felt like the festival had it’s own little slice of LB that provided the right setting with an amazing view of the coastline and the skyscrapers in downtown.

Upon entering the festival, you get a view of the “Like a Dream” stage, which is parallel to the water and hosted plenty of powerhouse groups such as Phoenix, MGMT, and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

My favorite set of the day that I got to catch at this stage was Passion Pit, whose music I have been listening to since at least 2012 but have never had the opportunity to see. They delivered an incredible performance, and their singer had mastered singing in both a normal and falsetto tone which blew me away. It’s not too often you get to see a band with such a unique sound and energy that is able to get a whole crowd dancing freely at 3 in the afternoon.

The second stage was a short stroll to the other side of the venue either by an underground walkway or an enclosed metal staircase, which led to an area covered with trees and the “Strange Like Angels” stage which was adjacent to the Queen Mary. This stage featured a rotating platform that gave them the ability to book multiple performances back to back, and since most of the sets were rather short it worked out pretty well.

Along with having some big name acts such as Beach House, Neon Indian, and Grizzly Bear, this stage also featured performances from Breakbot, The Faint, and RAC. Whether you are a seasoned hipster with plenty of shows under their belt or someone who’s dabbled in indie and looking to get more into it, there was something there for everyone.

Overall, Just Like Heaven filled a void within myself that I did not know had existed. With the absence of FYF Fest, which was the yearly gathering for lovers of niche music, Just Like Heaven filled that emptiness with an awesome lineup, a spectacular venue, and a unique vibe that will hopefully make a return in the coming years.

I had listened to a lot of people billed on the lineup in the past, but after being engulfed in the world of electronic music and camping festivals it was an awesome change of pace to go to a 1 day event that kept things simple.

Rumor has it that Long Beach will be the new home for many different events, and I for one, am all for it. We’re really hoping to see more events out here in the near future!

The H<3art Beats Collective from NYC is heading to Yonderville Music and Arts Festival this 4th of July weekend and will lead a special opening ceremony event for attendees that will include a medieval parade lead by the Queen of Yonderville! That Queen is none other than H<3art Beats resident Charmae!

Yonderville Festival in Virginia boasts a multi-genre lineup that includes both electronic and non-electronic music. On Friday you can join the Yonderville Parade lead by the H<3art Beats team that will consist of the royal court and crowned Queen Charmae. Expect a juggling jester and knights in shining armor to lead attendees to the center stage where a proclamation will be read, sparklers will be lit and the Queen will open up the stage to electronic music by singing her latest release on Circus Records, Conrank’s Bullet in the Gun feat Charmea.

And this is just a prelude to the weekend ahead for Yonderville attendees. This year will be the first at the brand new location Marvin’s Mountaintop in West Virginia. The change means that music can go later due to a lack of noise ordinance and the festival can continue to grow each year

The main stage is the highlight this year and we’ve heard whispers that it is a site to behold and a massive new build for Sugar Cube productions this year. Don’t miss sets by the Widdler, Desert Dwellers, Jade Cicada, Of the Trees, SPoonbill, Khiva and many more.

All in all, this festival is growing into something very special for the DMVU area and New Yorkers are taking notice and will be heading out for a weekend away from city stresses and back into nature.

Get your ticket here!

“Loveghost” is the latest single from the international troupe of newcomers (members stem from The UK, Switzerland and the USA), Saint Mars. Their latest single “Loveghost” effortlessly ebbs and flows between Saint Mars singer Tryzdin and Jethro “Alonestar” Sheehan’s diametrically opposing vocal cadences. Sheehan’s staccato-like rap element sections contrast with Tryzdin’s longer held notes for dramatic effect. The delivery is however a bit uneven, with Alonestar’s delivery not as strong as on his previous solo releases. Tryzdin’s vocal melodies and delivery are bang on, a feat even more impressive due to the young age of the performer. Hard to believe he is only fourteen years old.


Musically this track is perfect for driving. A steady bass line holds down the groove while the drums effortlessly keep the track moving forward and syncopated hi-hat accents keep everything from getting stale. A funky guitar line grabs your attention, weaving in and out to give the vocals air to breathe. Spectral sounding synths cut through on the choruses for an extra touch of otherworldly flare.

It’s a magical mystery tour, and one that won’t leave you missing out.

Check out the “Loveghost” music video below:
