Mario - Instagram It's been a minute, but Mario is back with a brand new single. The R&B crooner taps Nicki Minaj for his latest, "Somebody Else." Not a bad way to make a comeback. Over a Polow Da Don -produced beat, Mario is a jilted lover who has to accept the fact that his love left him for somebody else. Nicki storms the track with her verse, playing the girl who got away. "Looking at my new man/Wish it was you/But you dead now/Sign [...]

Starting off almost by chance as a one-man-project and rapidly growing thanks largely to internet buzz, Passion Pit have finally released their second full length. 'Gossamer' proves their ease in churning electro-pop gems such as the super "I'll Be Alright", "Take A Walk" and "Constant Conversation" said Mario. Thom continued "I don't think anyone doubted [...] The post Cougar Microbes Top Albums of 2012: Passion Pit - 'Gossamer' appeared first on Cougar Microbes .
Lana Del Rey became one of 2012 most discussed artists thanks in part to her calculated retro femme fatale image, the visual power of her infamous 'Video Games' video, a slew of amazing remixes and her unaffected yet incredibly deep vocal delivery. Cougar scribe Mario said "when listing my albums of the year I couldn't [...] The post Cougar Microbes Top Albums of 2012: Lana Del Rey - Born To Die appeared first on Cougar Microbes .
Bat For Lashes decamped to the idyllic Italian countryside to write and record her third album in an attempt to rid herself of a classic bout of writer's block. She got that monkey off her back- no reference to the Mapplethorpe style cover- succeeding in giving us a the most heartfelt record of her short [...] The post Cougar Microbes Top Albums of 2012: Bat For Lashes - The Haunted Man appeared first on Cougar Microbes .
Only a very small handful of producers caught my ear last year the way Lapalux did. From two impossibly lush, soulful EP's of original material, to a collection of phenomenal remixes , last year saw Brainfeeder's Essex representative grow fully and powerfully into his own sound. And that sound-all warm, ethereal texture, and warped sonic collage-is about as engrossing as anyone's right now, in no small part because of Lapalux's ability to pair those woozy atmospherics with top-notch vocalists and melodies that tend to burrow their way deep inside your brain. "Guuurl" represents a landmark, [...]
Wer den perfekten Soundtrack für ein sonniges Wochenende trotz Winter sucht, wird ihn in den facettenreichen, bunten Soundlandschaften des Engländers Lapalux finden. Seine gefühlvollen Melodien lassen keinerlei Kitsch vermuten, sie sind einfach nur schön. Der Mann aus Essex versteht es, atmosphärische Klänge zu erzeugen und mit einem schweren, zerstückelten Downtempobeat jeden zum Zurücklehnen und Entspannen zu verführen. In seinem sorgfältig konstruierten Durcheinander aus handgemachten Rhythmen, tief gehenden Synth-Melodien, verschiedensten Geräusch-Schnipseln und wilden Sound-Effekten verpasst er seinen Tracks ein ganz eigene Handschrift. Seine persönliche Note hat er auch schon [...]
It is a little hard to judge 'Blunderbuss' as a debut album because Jack White has been in the public eye for so long. Fortunately this album stands on it's own merits irrespective of the pedigree of it's creator White is possibly one of only a handful if not the sole musician arund who can truly be labelled a rocker, wrote Mario in his [...]
Following on from the XX's decade defining eponymous début everyone was curious to know what the trio's next move would be. There was almost hushed reverence when they announced their comeback with first single "Angels". "'Coexist' is an overwhelming success with a melancholic, bleak landscape of sparse sounds portraying the distance felt between once lovers who share no [...]
Jack White is possibly one of only a handful if not the sole musician arund who can truly be labelled a rocker, wrote Mario in his top 10 albums of the year list. Today he is one of the most eclectic artists in circulation who can produce great music with any instrument and approach any genre. His [...]
Fans expecting Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros to come out with 'Up From Below' part two may have been slightly underwhelmed by the band's follow up 'Here'. Whereas the band's debut may well have represented a joyous trip culminating in a grandiose dramatic sunset desert scene this sophomore effort is more like the ensuing [...]
Anticipato dal video di "Shine On" che trovate dopo il salto, arriva anche Sun il nuovo album di Mario Biondi , registrato in due anni tra Milano, Los Angeles, New York e Londra e prodotto dallo stesso cantante insieme a Bluey, il leader degli Incognito , band protagonista della stagione dell'Acid Jazz. Il disco sarà nei negozi a partire da martedì 29 gennaio 2013 e vanta, come è ormai abitudine dell'interprete compositore catanese, collaborazioni di grandissimo rilievo. Tra tutte, quella che lo vede duettare proprio con gli Incognito insieme a [...]

Se acaba el 2012 y junto con eso vienen las últimas fiestas tras un año agitado en cuanto a bandas y Djs en nuestro país. Es por eso que para despedirlo de mejor manera nuestros amigos de Cielito Lindo traen este sábado a Chile al Dj y productor lituano Mario Basanov , del cuál hemos escuchado bastante en NNM durante el año. Pero la fiesta no sólo consiste en el lituano, sino que además contará con la presencia de actos en vivo como Adrianigual, Cholita Sound, Miklos Tercero y Zaturno, y de Djs como Xtralarge, Lupi, Fenix vs Frank [...]
Update : Emma Marrone, Giorgia e Nina Zilli sono le tre cantanti che si esibiranno ai Fori Imperiali a Roma per il conto alla rovescia verso il 2013. Un grande concerto di cui vi avevamo annunciato già da qualche settimana. Ma, a quanto pare, ecco arrivare altre sorprese per la festa della Capitale. Come riportano i colleghi di 06Blog si sono aggiunti altri tre nomi -questa volta maschili- alle tre artiste: Pino Daniele, Mario Biondi e J-AX. Saliranno sul palco tutti e sei insieme? Si terrà poco distante la risposta dei tre cantanti? Ancora non si hanno precise [...]
Lithuanian production duo Mario & Vidis released the slow and soulful " Care " back in June, and a impressive array of friends have stepped up to provide us some remixes of the original. The remix package, out yesterday on Silence Music includes efforts from Danny Daze , Downtown Party Network, Darius Vaikas, and Trickski. Danny Daze stays in line with what we know and love - a dubbed-out bass heavy version of the original. Downtown Party Network remove much of the bouncier pop elements and transform the single into pure deep house while Darius Vaikas strips out the [...]
Bat For Lashes, AKA Natasha Khan, decided to isolate herself from the external pressures of those who expected a new hit in the vein of 20092s 'Two Suns'. The Brighton artist composed and recorded her new album 'The Haunted Man' in the Umbria countryside and this decision appears to have benefited her work. The Brighton [...]
Who the fck is nknwn? Seriously. All we know about this R/B loving individual is that they have a SoundCloud page that currently houses 20 tracks, which can all be downloaded for free. I guess it really doesn't matter though, because this remix is tight. posted by clarkbs
Mario Basanov's debut solo album entitled 'Journey' suggests that it's going to be a bit of a ride. It's been a great year for the Lithuanian - he's gained lotsa popularity for his blend of disco and deep house. We enjoyed shexy 'Who's Shot The Silence' and huge hit 'Changed' with Vidis. Basanov has finished off 2012 with a playful and uplifting album with a strong electronic funk sound. It's slower than you might expect but there's plenty of disco, house, jazz, a touch of pop and some really atmospheric moments too. It's fun and [...]
