New DJ Mix: “In the Mixx Vol. 2” March 2014. FREE DL!!
For those that are so inclined, I released a new mix under my alter-ego, LUMINUS, for the upcoming Spring season in March. This is the second volume of my “In the Mixx” series and is available on Soundcloud and through a link after the post.
This blend of hip-hop/rap music and electronic dance music features hits such as Young Thug’s “Danny Glover” [REMIX], the blog-topping, chart-climbing “Partition (Dave Aude Remix)” and a slick remix to Tinashe’s “2 On feat. Schoolboy Q” single by Wax Motif.
Also featured are songs from fellow DJs I’ve blogged about such as FLCNS (FALCONS) and DJ Renz (of the APH x Renz duo) and more. Check it out at the link up top or right here:
KiD CuDi released Satellite Flight: Journey to Mother Moon with few hours notice on Twitter and exclusively on iTunes.
The album features many of the dark, space-like overtones and sounds Cudi is known for.
Following the Beyoncé marketing/distribution model Cudi released the album two months early, without any promotion and mainly just by informing his followers on Twitter the album was now available.
Standouts include the rock-influenced, WZRD reminiscent “Going to the Ceremony,” and the more spacey, deep tuneage of “Destination: Mother Moon”, “Satellite Flight,” and “In My Dreams 2015.”
“Copernicus Landing” also channels this spirit and the more beat-influenced ride through intergalactic soundscapes of “Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Know,” is what we have come to expect from the Moon Man.
The album is a good listen all the way through and reminds one of his last album Indicud with elements of the Man on the Moon albums and his WZRD project.
If this album release is successful, we are bound to see more artists “suddenly” releasing albums and more no-marketing, direct-to-fan approaches, which for Beyoncé worked incredibly well. Not good news for promotional agents, but great news for music artists and their fans alike.
