Unknowns J.T. Roach and producer Quincy Kwalae have collaborated on an EP entitled ‘Piñata After Party,’ which has a delightful melange of R&B and pop songs. ‘Bad Bitch’ is the edgy and scandalous track that could very well be a product of Timbaland’s expertise ear for sensual beats. The dubsteppy parts are tastefully done and reminds me of Alex Clare’s heavy electronic songs. My personal favorite is ‘Body,’ as you may know my guilty pleasure is R&B songs with plenty of crafty innuendos and suggestive content — ;). (The smiley wink is a total joke — reference to Millionaire Matchmaker anyone?) I found this mashup of John Mayer’s ‘Say’ and ‘Freefallin’ on Youtube, so enjoy the added gem. The E.P is free or you can buy it on iTunes.
The boys have done it again. Essentially the only dubstep artists I listen to anymore, Adventure Club samples the genius YYY’s song ‘Maps’ and turns it into a powerful electronic explosion. This song has only been out for 5 hours but are totaling nearly 20k plays so far. I’m saddened I wasn’t able to see AC when they toured and stopped by St. Louis but I’m sure I’ll get another opportunity in the future. Free download! Listen on readers.
Not new, you can call me old and not-current from posting this. But, right now I’m in a mood to post some good ol’ Adventure Club. Also, I have not had anything to eat all day, albeit the half caesar salad I forced myself to consume earlier today (St. Louis Bread Co FTW). I’m gonna try and bang out some more posts later this week, but due to a variety of studio, college, life, etc. stresses, this is the best I can do. I cannot emphasize how refreshing Adventure Club is amidst the horribly over produced and crunchy dubstep that is now popular amongst the youth. This is a classic in my music inventory (8935 songs guys! Almost to 9k!) and it’s a good one to listen to when life’s getting rough; take the lyrics to heart: “so if I were you, I’d have a little trust.”
