Week of 6/15 Catch-up: RATATAT, The Chainsmokers, Scott Melker & more

Schedules get hectic, hence my lack of posts this week. There won’t be a Remix Friday this week, but I can promise you’ll enjoy what is coming over the next two weeks. In the mean time, blast a few new songs (and a mix) that have kept my ears busy between summer travels, two jobs, […]

KiD CuDi – love. ft Ratatat

I’m not sure what it is about KiD CuDi when he gets a hold of a Ratatat beat, but it should happen more often. The Brooklyn musicians/producers blessed Cudder’s debut Man on the Moon: The End of Day with see-saw guitar riffs and rhythms on two of his best tracks in “Alive” and of course, […]
