Brooklyn band DREAMERS allowed us to premiere the Duplexx remix of their song “Wolves” today, and I have to admit, this is a perfect Thursday tune for me. The perfect blend of energetic pop and light electronic reminds me that it’s the best day of the week. The entire weekend is ahead of us, and if this song has any ability to predict the future, it’s going to be a lively and exciting weekend indeed. Here’s where I sign off and go add this track to my regular rotation.
You got me brainwashed, you got me fucked up, like you
AAHH! Fest is a newly minted music festival that will take place this Sunday at Chicago’s Union Park (the same grounds that host Pitchfork Music Festival.) Curated by the city’s own Common, the lineup includes top bills like Lupe Fiasco, De La Soul, and Jay Electronica, among others. The fest will be hosted by legendary (and rare) comedian Dave Chappelle, who could probably justify the ticket cost alone.
The lineup also notes a “very special guest.” Whispers around town have been rumoring the guest to be Kanye West, which wouldn’t be all too surprising. When Mr. Chappelle did a gig at Radio City Music Hall a couple months ago, Yeezy stopped by to give a surprise performance. Could lightning strike twice?
Either way, AAHH! Fest should be a cool, Chicago-centric time as the city winds down with summer’s close.
A community showcase will take place from 10AM-1PM, while the main stage acts will go from 4PM-10PM on September 21.

Hugh just don’t seem to quit and keep bringing new tunes to our ears this year. It’s definitely nothing to complain about because this talented group have something that is so effortlessly cool, we can’t help but love having a bit more. “One of These Days” is their latest track and it’s got a soft yet edgy vibe that’ll have you bobbing your head for the full 3 minutes. It seems as though new music from them will be arriving again soon, but for now listen to this lovely one below.
Point Point just released an absolute synth-based anthem titled ‘doubleOreo’. The mysterious French based producer group has been on my watch-list ever since they released ‘Life in Grey’ (featured below). Cannot wait to find out more about this group in the future. Nothing but good vibes, dope synths, and tracks that just flow so well from start to finish. Enjoy
Point Point – doubleOreo

ODESZA, fresh off their album release ‘In Return‘, have just released a dope remix of ‘A Heartbreak’ by Angus & Julia Stone. This Seattle Duo doesn’t seem to sleep in 2014 as it seems they keep churning out anthems left and right. Excited to see the music careers of ODESZA take off, and am curious to see what magic they will produce next.
