Railroad Earth's annual Hangtown Halloween Ball is just a few days away from celebrating its fourth year, returning to the scenic landscapes of Placerville, California with three nights of spiritually rejuvenating music, arts and more.
As advocates of music that transcends all boundaries, from mainstream Top 40 to the underground, we are honored and beyond excited to be supporting this year's event. From funk to folk to roots rock, the music lineup will bring an array of live music to the stages and illuminate the airwaves beneath the new moon's lingering shadow. Railroad Earth will perform all three nights, as per tradition, together with supporting acts like moe., The Motet, The Meter Men, Leftover Salmon, Jeff Austin Band, ALO, Brothers Comatose, and Sunsquabi.
Tropical house is where it’s at these days. One of the newcomers of the fast emerging sub-genre is Norwegian native, Bearson. Bearson has worked on hit remixes in the past but his new spin on James Bay's, Let It Go is by far the best work of his yet, showing some melodious poise over laidback percussion. James Bay’s vocals are the perfect complement to what Bearson constructs with his talent.
Cazzette, The Swedish electronic music duo who rocked the Swedish charts with their certified-gold "Sleepless" earlier this year strike once again with their new single "Blind Heart", set for release next Monday, October 27th.
Cazzette have made a name for themselves in the dance world, paving the way for dance music artists using streaming to reach the masses. The duo have been well-received in the industry, with sold-out shows around the world, including live shows alongside fellow Swede DJ Avicii.
The duo departed from their dub house sound with "Sleepless," and continue to explore new regions with "Blind Heart".
For those who don’t know about Duvoh, it seems it’s the time to get to know. The Los Angeles-based pair, who has recently provided show support for Deorro, has now secured a release on his own Panda Funk Records.
The order of the day is electro-fuelled progressive house, and delivered in highly notable style. With fiery drum patterns, fast-moving synth chords and an infectious melody driven by Adrian Delgado’s vocals, there is no doubt that "Darkness I Needed" will cause a stir on the dance floor.
We’re sure this next release is going to enjoy chart success. It’s the opening title track from KDrew’s new EP "Signals" and brings the highest quality of production, similar to the likes of Swedish House Mafia. Available to stream now via Good Game Records,this one thoroughly deserves your attention.
Gregori Klosman, the Parisian producer whose beats have given a new pulse to club music in recent years, has announced the upcoming release of his newest single, "Time To Be Alone," featuring Sarah Mount.
With this track, Klosman moves away from his club-focused sound to create a track riding the line between pop-perfect and dance-crazy. Blending piano with synths and the soulful vocals of Sarah Mount, "Time To Be Alone" makes for a warm and inviting sound that leaves listeners feeling pleasantly invigorated.
"Time To Be Alone" will be available for download exclusively from Beatport on November 17th, followed by wider release on December 2nd.
At long last: the first-ever Maudlin Strangers music video is here! After a successful LP release earlier this year (and a trancy Bass Science remix shortly thereafter), “Overdose,” the contemplative piece by Jake Hays, has come to life in a film-noir-meets-smoke-circle masterpiece.
Papadosio, the critically acclaimed progressive rock band whose music has been called the sound of the information age, is making its way to the House of Blues in Chicago this Saturday, October 25th as part of their Imaginal Cells Tour 2014.
Founded in 2006, Papadosio has headlined shows in every region of the country and played more than 100 performances a year. The quintet uses the latest music technologies to create a unique blend of progressive, psychedelia, electronic, and dance, making for stunning, high-octane sets.
Following the success of their critically-acclaimed Observations in 2009, Papadosio continues to sell out venues and make waves with their innovative and thought-provoking songs. Their sprawling 2012 double album To End the Illusion of Separation (T.E.T.I.O.S.) won widespread praise from critics and fans, exploring serious themes of conservation, tolerance, and mind-expansion. Papadosio continues to write songs on the road whenever they can, and seeing them live is the best way to experience their innovative songwriting.
A few weeks ago, one of our good friends told us about an amazing, inspiring boot camp class she partookin, hosted by New York based personal trainer Glenn Ford (aka Ford Fit). Always ones to promote what is up-and-coming before anyone else, we sat down with Mr. Ford to hear his thoughts on working out, and had him put together the perfect workout playlist for you, our loyal readers.

Be sure to check out his Ladies fitness class this coming Saturday, October 25th at 11am in Columbus Circle. It's a great way to start your weekend, before the unlimited mimosas at brunch of course.
