Now Pumpkin isn't your typical DJ or Producer...he isn't bound by genre, tempo or what's considered 'in' at the moment. Instead, he finds comfort in weaving the chillest and most beautiful sounding electronic music into a sound that's all his own. Based out of Los Angeles, Pumpkin has done his time in the underground and is now beginning to sprout up all over the place - from warehouse parties to club sets and even slots at popular US music festivals like Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle and EDC! His remix [...]
Though he hasn't released a studio album since 2010, Hawaiian "soft rock" singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has been an unquestionable darling of the last decade, topping the college charts with catchy, easy-going folkpop lullabies, and winning praise for his work organizing the jam and surf communities through music and political action. And the odds are good that you're familiar with at least some of his work; after all, his soundtrack for the 2006 film Curious George garnered two Grammy nominations, and became the first soundtrack for an animated film to top the Billboard 200 since Pocahontas; his [...]

There were a lot of good tracks sent to our mailbox in the past few weeks (or months) that somehow didn't make it on Nite Versions on time. Here's a bunch of them! First, we have a new tune from RAC's Andrew Maury who remixed 'Concrete Wall', a single performed by 25 years old Malaysian singer/songwriter Zee Avi. Goldroom, the solo effort of Josh from NightWaves, drops a new song titled 'Angeles'. Dedicated to the city he calls home, this track captures the sun [...]
New track from RAC, who can do no wrong when it comes to the remix. Zee Avi is an artist signed to Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records back in 2009. You can hear the laid-back style that probably appealed to Johnson in the original song (video below), but the remix takes it to a whole new level. Check the BGB archive of RAC remixes here .
