This blog…this effort I make online is unmistakably my own.  I post music here that I find on my own or by the suggestion of people who know me very well; music that moves something inside of me.  To that end, it is very rare that I am approached by someone who doesn’t know me […]

Ask me not why, but this track feels like Christmas to me.  (I know you and I cool so you didn’t ask, but Imma tell you anyway…cause we cool) See, this track feels to me like a chart topping hit by an elf.  And that is not meant to be a dig at all…I love […]

Every once in a while, the music that Spotify suggests I might like is right.  This is one of those instances.  Colder is the most successful one man bands that I have ever heard.  He comes across as a quartet with complete conviction and I wish he would release more material.  Unfortunately, it looks like […]

I stumbled across Poni Hoax for the first time back in 2010 while listening to a Modern English channel on Pandora.  The hook of The Paper Bride, which appeared on MF10, dug into me and I swore I would give them a full listen to ASAP.  Well, that finally happened this Summer and when I […]

What is a Fruitcake without a cover track, right?  This year’s contribution comes from Frazier Chorus who in the late 80′s covered the Sex Pistols’ Anarchy In The UK. It is a sedated version, which adds immeasurably to its allure for me.  Put it on loud and prepare to be pulled, ever so softly, into […]

Deadmau5 has a special place in my heart ever since David Leary introduced me to him in 2010.  His unique brand of EDM stands on its own jet-powered platform that is constantly circling this world of ours looking for the next group of party people ready to get their ears filled with that strobe-driving, bass-pulsing, […]

Sounding more like an early 80′s demo tape track than a cut from a modern producer/DJ, The Curse fits right into the serotonin channels of my brain.  It is stripped down, obvious, looped and completely enchanting.  A great track for dancing in your room with your headphones on while putting off homework and dinner.  Those […]

Phantogram has been producing great electronic music for a little over five years now and have always had my ear.  With their most recent releases they have really pushed into new ground though.  Their familiar and always fun throbbing keyboard bass finds its way into all of the tracks and continues to be fresh, but […]

How curious do you want your music?  As curious as possible?  Do you want to push the limits of what pop can be, should be, shouldn’t be?  Do you want to ask yourself “What the fuck am I listening to?” just before you realize that you can’t stop tapping your foot to it? Well, look […]

A haunting little grove that makes me picture a dark, pulsing dance floor that calls my name with each pumping combination of strobe light and beat.  Is it Monday?  Feels more like Friday with this track playing. Let’s Motor Click the image below to get more Rodion & Khan through Amazon!
