Brand New – Daisy (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)

25 Feb

For me dubstep at times is hard to listen to any other place than on a packed dance floor. But I really like this mix of the Brand New song Daisy made by Adventure Club, a Dj duo from Montreal, Canada. It definitely gets me ready for some weekend dancing activities. Or at least pumping up the working pace on a Friday afternoon!

I just say I never get tired of it.

The Equinoxio 8 Promotion Video

23 Feb

Good Morning world!

As usual it’s a sunny and freezing cold winter day in Norrköping, Sweden. I woke up to something nice this morning, good memories and also good news.

Last spring, when I was still in Guadalajara, Mexico, I studied a course called audiovisual productions. In this course me and some friends made a promotion video for the company Massive Trance, whom arrange the annual rave Equinoxio. We got to film at the Equinoxio 8, where top notch DJ’s like Talamasca and Space Cat were DJ’ing. It was great being involved in such a huge event. Anyhow, now they’ve started to use this video in the promotion of Equinoxio 9. Which is awesome! As it seems my friends keep on the good work with the production company Nanai Films, and they should since they’re both very talented.

Here below is the final result of the promotion video we made. So if you’re going to Mexico in the near future: check out Equinoxio 9!

The Lover, Boyfriend, Best Friend, Joy and Support.

22 Feb

For me music is love. A Lover, Boyfriend, Best Friend, Joy and Support. It’s a love that I want to share with friends and a lot about music is the sharing experience. Of course there’re copyrights to think about, but I think we have to embrace the joy people have for sharing – not work against it.
One of the best things is when a friend recommend a really nice mixtape or track. The best feeling is when I can return the favor.

So, no more words. This post is about the love for music and sharing; not the written word. It’s quite perfectly described by this Solomun mixtape, that my mate Helios recommended. I’ll share it with you. It’s pure joy. Enjoy.

Mixtape By JJ

21 Feb

I’m very excited about the concert coming up with JJ here in Norrköping on the 3rd of March. Right now I’m listening to their mixtape Kills, that was released around christmas. There’re some gems in there and at the same time it’s quite humorous, hope that’s what was intended.

Kills:

01 Still
02 Die Tonight
03 Kill Them
04 Kill You
05 New Work
06 Believe
07 Pressure Is a Privilege
08 Angels
09 Boom
10 High End

It’s free to download on Sincerely Yours.

Here’s the music video to the song “Kill Them”

A Non-Existant New Album – Great Remix & An Ape Instead!

21 Feb

So according to certain blogs (like one of my favourites Dödselectro) today would be the day that Bag Raiders release their new album, but as it seems; there’s no new album. Seems as if they haven’t checked the information properly. Reading on the Bag Raiders Myspace for example, it seems as if they’re just about to release a new album…but checking the dates when it was written it’s old news. Unfortunately I didn’t see this either until now, when I actually started to look for the new album. As it seems, their “new album”, is the debut album that was released in October 2010. So, I’m a little disappointed that there’s not any other new album coming out!

But, as a little treat in the so called “non-treat” of a non-existant new album, there’s an awesome remix that’s also free to download. Bag Raiders – Sunlight (Stopmakingme Remix). I posted it on my Facebook the other day, but it should also be recommended here! Except that, I also found (it’s been out a while though) one of their music videos. It’s good music and an awesomely cute ape, is there really any better combination?

So, maybe I’m wrong now, and there’s actually another new album coming out (that would be great..) but I think I’m right. Anyhow, enjoy their music, cause it’s definitely great!

2011: the Year of Music

20 Feb

2011 is all about music. So many awesome record releases already; Cut Copy, Radiohead, Mogwai, Bright Eyes, Isloée (and so many more!) With a start like this, I wonder where this can possibly end! It feels like it’s only gonna get better.

Another thing that’s making me overly excited is the amazing spring packed with concerts I have ahead! This week I went to Bright Eyes on Debaser Medis in Stockholm. It was a really good concert. Amazing with all the love from the audience. Such a mix of people as well. The audience consisted of all from 16 year old emo kids to 60 year old businessmen. Awesome. And Conor Oberst really gave it all. He definitely seems to love being on stage. This is a typical concert that is perfect in a small place like Debaser Medis, the intimacy between Bright Eyes and their audience is what makes it so special. The highlight of the evening was when Conor sang the song Lua together with the warm up band First Aid Kit (two extremely talented girls with voices to die for). That was a truly magic moment.

Concerts coming up this spring are amazing. Next one is the Gothenburg duo JJ, playing here in Norrköping! I was so excited buying the tickets I was almost shaking. I’ve got great expectations for this concert, don’t doubt a second they will meet them and probably go beyond them.
After this we have, oh yes this is true – CUT COPY! Anyone who’s read anything on this blog knows how much I like Cut Copy, and now I’m finally gonna see them! 11th of March on Strand in Stockholm.

Yesterday I was also about to faint when I saw that my two other favorite australian musicians are coming here this spring as well! ANGUS & JULIA STONE, playing at Nalen in Stockholm on the 18th of May. Sweet! That’ll be a very special. I had to, like with JJ and Cut Copy, buy the tickets before I knew if anyone would come with me. But since I have friends with an extremely good taste in music; they do.

Ok, well. Enough with all the swaggering. I’m just so excited, 2011 couldn’t have started in any better way! (also have a trip to London and one to Berlin behind me this year). There’re so many concert I won’t go to unfortunately, like Mogwai and Hercules and Love Affair on Debaser Medis. I need to hold on to a little of that money, so that the summer will be just as amazing as the spring!

So last but not least. One thing that’s not new for 2011, but new for me! I just found the band Bruce Peninsula and I’m loving it! Beautiful, emotional and highly addictive.

Check them out on Spotify or Myspace.

Make sure you don’t miss out on all the great concerts ahead! Check Luger for some great tips!

Lots of love!
