Plus les jours passent et plus l'on se rapproche du tant attendu nouvel album de Kisses , Kids In LA , qui sortira le 14 Mai via Cascine. Nous avons déjà pu découvrir trois extraits de ce dernier et il faut l'avouer, nous ne pouvons qu'être impatience quant à l'écouter dans sa totalité. Je ne pense pas que d'autres extraits seront dévoilés avant le jour J mais en attendant, on peut se rattraper en écoutant l'excellent remix du duo américain Jensen Sportag pour The Hardest Part qui est une vraie pépite, absolument magnifique qui [...]
Don't worry be happy. This song is a nostalgic beauty that lets our minds wonder off to distant places, past experiences and future adventures. The strings are majestic and the synth work reminds us that happiness is just over the rainbow. "You hallowing out a place to go, girl I'm taking you out across the city."

Nashville’s Chilly Electro Funk exports Jensen Sportag ’s album should be out soon-ish. They are currently holed up in the studio putting the finished touches to the record.

Is everyone already holiday hungover? There's not too much happening around town this weekend which must mean folks are resting up to party extra hard for NYE this year.

FRIDAY: Frances & The Foundation , Kiernan McMullan , Joshua [...]

Now until Oct 20th, hundreds of bands and music fans will take over New York City for the annual CMJ Music Marathon . While CMJ may lack the "big names" you find at Coachella and Lollapalooza , it totally makes up for it with shear volume. There are soooo many bands and artists playing, it's actually a bit nerve wrecking, trying to decide which acts to see. But what really makes CMJ rad, is the music [...]
Miami Horror, Goldroom, Viceroy, Flume, Rufus, and more Thursday at The DL for the Vitalic Noise Launch Party .
Hello New York! October is finally here and that means besides Fall, Halloween, and your best friend's 21st birthday, the annual CMJ ,music marathon is in less than ten days! While this could have multiple meanings; important week of networking, music discoveries, business transactions, meeting new friends, potential lovers, fulfilling that groupie dream, life revelations.. etc, this five day festival is definitely not worth missing. The official starting date is on Tuesday, October 16th and ending on Saturday, the 20th. Location? That's for you to decide and also the best part of CMJ. Shows are scattered throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, ranging from classy [...]

Cascine Records , which is based in New York and London, specializes in chill experimental pop and is the reason we've been graced with the music of artists like Chad Valley , Jensen Sportag , World Tour , and Southern Shores . Just this past week, our Cascine friends celebrated their second birthday and to mark the special occasion, they released a compilation of "standout" tracks from the last two years. Below are a few of them. Independent labels help keep music alive, so make sure to show them some love! You can stream [...]
Cascine has been one of the most innovative and consistent labels to emerge this decade, and they're reflecting upon their contribution to the pop spectrum with a little compilation they've titled Standouts: 2010 - 2012 . I still remember the first email they sent our way in October of 2010 (which introduced us to the wonder of Evan Voytas ), and we're already big into the forthcoming sounds they'll be releasing this year. Purchase the album today on iTunes and Beatport .
We can't believe it's already been two years since the wonderful Cascine started up. Since 2010, we've featured nearly all of the bands that have joined their roster and are glad to hear they're releasing a compilation of all of those acts. Included on Cascine Standouts: 2010 - 2012 are tracks from World Tour, Selebrities, [...]
It's Thursday again which means that the search for the perfect wave continues. This week I am sitting on the shore of the Mediterranean sea and bizarrely I've been listening to a lot of old school hip hop and R&B. As far as I’m concerned, whether winter or summer, it just doesn’t get any better than "return of the mack" by Mark Morrison. Sure DJs like Viceroy have tried to do remixes of the track but the original is still best. Now for another [...]
Blood Diamonds feat Grimes : Phone Sex ( Jensen Sportag Remix) - Stream Le duo Blood Diamonds / Grimes était déjà un pur bonheur. Ajoutez à ça une touche de Jensen Sportag et c’est l’extase! The duo Blood Diamonds / Grimes was already pure joy. Add to that a touch of Jensen Sportag and it is ecstasy!
Last week we could enjoy new tune 'Phone Sex', a collaboration between the L.A.-based pop artist Blood Diamonds and Grimes. The track is already out on 4AD and comes with remixes by Unicorn Kids and Jensen Sportag and finally today we can take a listen to both of them. While the Nashville duo Jensen Sportag [...]
Conforme he estado escuchando mas y mas la colaboracion de Grimes en el nuevo sencillo de Blood Diamonds , asi como los remixes oficiales que aparecen dentro de la edicion oficial de " Phone Sex ", debo decir que este es uno de los mas grandes momentos que le he escuchado a Claire Boucher, ya que en esta cancion es donde su voz se ha lucido por completo, y en la que demuestra que se puede ajustar a cualquier ritmo; ya que si bien el remix de Unicorn Kid se presta mas para ser reproducido [...]
