[Artist Spotlight:] Sam F “The DJ from American Dad’s ‘Standard Deviation'”


Check out some of these great tracks by electronic producer and DJ, SAM F. His music has been featured on the popular animated show American Dad. In the episode ‘Standard Deviation’, the main character Stan must defeat his boss, Avery Bullock, in a DJ battle to avoid being sent on a suicidal CIA mission. He accomplishes this by downloading a set by “some weird guy named SAM F who had a billion likes [on Soundcloud]” as he states in the episode. Sam’s remix of “Flicka Da Wrist” appears during the episode’s most prominent scene, where Stan experiences a drug-induced trip that has him eventually winning his DJ battle.

If you know me, you know that American Dad is one of my favorite animated shows of all time. Though I grew up with MacFarlane’s parent show, Family Guy, over time Family Guy has struggled to retain its’ core audience. Episodes of Family Guy recently have gotten better, but for a time (about a year or two ago) some of the episodes seemed a little too politically charged, or had jokes that were too random, specific, or niche-driven.

Snakehips – Don’t Leave (feat. MØ)

Don’t leave
Shut your mind off and let your heart breathe
You don’t need to be worried
I may not ever get my shit together
But ain’t nobody gonna love you better

Next up, Snakehips dance-house affair, “Don’t Leave” featuring  brings high-energy and atmospheric vocals; ones that only the voice behind Major Lazer’s “Lean On” could bring. Layers of synth sounds and calming effects mix well on this track, and though it’s initial feel is a bit like “dance-pop” there is still a very awe-inspiring deepness inherent in “Don’t Leave.” Check out the song above and check out other songs I’ve reviewed by Snakehips here and here.

[Mellow Hip-Hop Beats:] KA-YU – Flowers

Next up is a very interesting instrumental track coming from beat producer KA-YU, “Flowers” is a calming joyride through hip-hop, latin flavored tropical beats and sounds. The result is a very chill track great for meditating or getting work done or to simply drift off into for some moments.

Producer J-Mac’s most recent track “Morning Sunshine” continues the chilled out vibe over smooth beats and vocals from our first post. Perfect for relaxing with a book in the sunlight, a picnic at a local park, or as the soundtrack to a posh art gallery, “Morning Sunshine” is calming, uplifting, jazzy and just downright sophisticated.

Dutch producers Ka-Yu & J-Mac’s sounds’ are very reminiscent of Nujabes, D’jango (some have said in comments), a little Dilla, or really any other insanely good beat producers. Take some time to mellow out to this beat and check out more from KA-YU and J-Mac below. Both artists hail from the Art in Melodies Collective group of DJs and producers.

[DJ Mixes] New iLLUMiИUS Mixes ft. Major Lazer, Fetty Wap, Wiz Khalifa


[Club EDM, Dance & Trap DJ Mix]
Syncopation Vol. 1

[Hip-Hop/Rap DJ Mix]
Put In Werk 2015

Fresh for your listening ears are two brand mixes I’ve recorded in the past few months that I had laying around and finally got around to finishing/cleaning up. “Syncopation” and “Put In Werk” are “preview” mixes of series to come further down the pipeline, with the former being newer and featuring club style EDM.

The latter, a mix of solely hip-hop and rap music, with a little ‘chill trap’ for added flavor. “Put In Werk” is heavy with Fetty Wap appearances and is capped off by one of the sickest Drake remixes I’ve ever heard (Ain’t No Tellin’ remixed by stwo).

For now, you can download these mixes (and many others!) for FREE straight from my Soundcloud.

-Enjoy

EDM Origins: “10’s House Music [House/Trance:] Kaskade – Start Again (feat. Becky Jean Williams) // [Club Dance/EDM:]


[Progressive Trance-House:] Kaskade feat. Becky Jean Williams – Start Again


The EDM Origins post for today focuses on house music, particularly the mish-mash of progressive house, vocal trance and dance music typical of super-producer Kaskade. In “Start Again,” enchanting and uplifting female vocals commence the ride and journey into tech-house beats melded with trance-like melodies. It’s hard to pinpoint any one stand-out track from Dynasty. Most of the album has this signature sound of Kaskade’s. More epic even, are the remixes of EP’s popular tracks and, as is common practice in EDM, the whole album (see Kaskade’s Fire & Ice (Double EP Album), other self-remixers include Diplo and DJ Tiesto to name a few)


[Dance / Club House:] Kaskade & Adam Sun feat. Sunsun – Raining (Dance.Love Edit)

Raining” is EDM producers, Kaskade and Adam Sun‘s dance-house masterpiece, filled with intoxicating vocals, bass heavy synths and a quite dance-able rhythm. The “dance.love edit” is featured on Kaskade’s remix compilation album, dance.love, alongside a host of other amazing remixes of Kaskade’s songs and other artists such as Alex Gaudino, Samantha James and Adrian Lux (see below:)
