ODESZA


























We caught ODESZA last night at Club Dada in Dallas, and the Seattle-based production duo laid it down! Club Dada is your typical hole-in-the-wall type venue here in the Deep Ellum portion of Dallas, and the relatively small venue was jam packed with anticipation for ODESZA. You could feel the electricity buzzing in the air; this is a show we couldn't miss. With the crowd bouncing and grooving to glittery synth sounds and body grinding bass, Dallas felt alive. After bumping elbows and knees with the locals drenched in flammable sweat, we retreated to Serious Pizza for some much needed slices. 

The crowd really got down to favorites like "My Friends Never Die," "Sun Models" and "Without You." 

"Sun Models," released just last month is already at over 600k+ views! Their tour is selling out fast, so grab your tickets before they're gone!

Cherub



A tribute to Cherub and their funky grooves... 

These dudes were phenomenal at SXSW! By far my favorite act this year. They way they interacted with the crowd, and the energy exchanged was electrifying. Specifically, Cherub gave a killer live performance at the IFC Showcase. They even did a bit of crowd surfing, which was totally awesome and added to the insane vibe of the showcase. 

These Nashville natives lay down the grooviest of tunes and are recognized for being a sexy electro-pop duo that is the dance love-child of 80’s funk and pop music from the future. 

Here are some of my favorite Cherub tunes. 


 
"Doses and Mimosas" is off of the band's second album MoM & DaD, released back in February 2012.

 



Could they get any sexier? Why yes, they can. 





Get lucky and catch them on tour, dates here.

TOURIST - I Can't Keep Up (Feat. Will Heard)



PBR is a junk beer, but the PBR&B genre goes down smooth. 

The first thing that drew me to this new track was the smooth vocals and uplifting grooves.
UK producer William Phillips (signed to Disclosure’s label Method Recordsis the man behind TOURIST, and has released a brand new track titled “I Can’t Keep Up” featuring the silky vocals of Will Heard. “I Can’t Keep Up” will be a part of his upcoming EP titled Patterns out April 22. 

TOURIST will be at SXSW in Austin, TX this year. He is definitely one to put on your list of must see artists and will be playing several unofficial, free shows.
