Tinseling Thursday XI

Sorry, but for the time being I'm going to post some shorter items because I'm very busy with some interesting musical projects. Todays tinsels were produced by Hot Chip and 2 Bears member Joe Goddard
He made a remix of a Dirty Projectors song named The Socialites and it's a beauty, even better than the original but that's my humble opinion.

Nice one isn't it? Via soundcloud you can enjoy a bunch of remixes....thanks Joe!

Warm Wednesday XXIV

Let's have a warm wednesday with Lodewijk Fluttert alias
  Bakermat is a Dutch DJ/Producer making some groovy and warm house/dance songs. The songs are often completed with jazzy saxophone samples and fragments of speeches like the famous Martin Luther King "I have a dream" speech in the song "Vandaag". It sounds a bit like St. Germain meets Laurent Garnier meets Parov Stellar. Imagine a beach party, a sunset, a BBQ, some cocktails and then this song "Vandaag" as the opener... Yep it's going to be a great night I can assure you. The template is simple, start a beat at +/-120 BPM, then some nice piano / organ / fender rhodes chords, ad a solo instrument and maybe a nice speech-sample as the cherry on the pie. His song "Zomer" (Dutch for Summer) is another nice mellow song with the flute in the leading role. I think it's going to be a long hot summer for Bakermat because his song "Vandaag" is predicted to be one of the 2013 summerhits in these regions. And here is "Leven" enjoy!

Misty Monday XXIII

Today we have Belgian hitwonder Paul van Haver a.k.a. Stromae bringing us a perfect misty monday song.
 It was 2011 when he made a massive breakthrough with the summer hit "Alors on Danse" (that song with that annoying saxophone sample). Now he made a new song with a Jaqcues Brell kind of feeling and that's more what I like. Listen and take a look at todays Misty Monday song "Formidable".

Nice video and a well piece of street acting :)even the police is convinced, very nice detail that one of the cops is a fan and offers him to bring him home safely....cute! He released another song for his second upcoming album, it's called "Papaoutai" Personally I heard this song way too much but for those people who don't know the hit, here's "Alors on Danse".

Tinseling Thursday X

Today a very short tinsel due to a lack of time, as you may have noticed. Nowadays it's Bastille buzzing on all radiostations with their hit "Pompeii".
 Bastille are an alternative rock band from London. First formed in 2010, Bastille began as a solo project by singer-songwriter Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band. The four-piece consists of members Dan Smith, Chris 'Woody' Wood, Will Farquarson and Kyle Simmons. The name of the band derives from Bastille Day – an event celebrated on 14 July, which is also the same date lead vocalist, Dan Smith, was born. Yesterday I saw them performing an a capella version of this song which I want to share with you. And here's their latest single from the album "Bad Blood" this is the song "Laura Palmer" and here's the original song "Pompeii" on soundcloud you can enjoy the album "Others people heartache part II" with some nice covers, what about "Killer" from Seal? enjoy
