Frankmusik - "Ice Box"

I just heard from Frankmusik for the first time in the a while... prompting an "oldie but goodie" post...

Frankmusik- "Ice Box (Cover)"

EDIT: I realized I've posted this song a few times but I've never posted the original Omarion version with it... so here it is just in case you lived under a rock and somehow haven't heard this song.

Kavinsky "Nightcall" Remix Competition could make you famous!


Seemed like a good headline to get you interested... but then again how could you not be interested?!?! Even if I had just said "wicked remixes" in the headline it would have gotten a lot of people interested.. but by saying "remix competition" there is no way that any respecting blogger, dj, or producer can overlook this info.

Throwing the word "fame" in is like throwing in the word "free" lol...

Even if you win there are no promises of fame (as you can see below that's not part of the prize packages)... BUT if Kavinsky, himself, chooses your remix as the winner I can't see how you wouldn't end up making waves in the future!

So what's up with all this delicious information? How can you make the best remix of your life (and maybe get some swag while you're at it)? Read the press release below...

To celebrate the release of ‘Nightcall’, Record Makers and Kavinsky
are proud to offer fans / budding producers the opportunity to remix the zombie vocals of Lovefoxxx and Kavinsky. Head over to kavinskyremix.com to get involved:

// 1 Download the vocal stems using the Soundcloud player.

# 2nd prize: (chosen by the Record Makers staff)
Nightcall vinyl + Teddy Boy vinyl + Soundcloud Lite account

# 3rd prize: (chosen by the fans - most favourites on SoundCloud)

This is what he said about the Dazed Digital mix...
“This mix is automatically generated by my car when I start the engine. This is the music that flows in my veins. My car knows this. For the first time ever, you are able to listen to this program outside of my car. Enjoy."

So get crackin! You've got a wicked song to mess around with, you've got a finite amount of time to do it, and you just might be the lucky bugger to win... who knows? Anyway, I hope you enjoy the remixes (make sure you go cop "Nightcall" from Record Makers) and Kavinsky's mix (which comes a little way toward making up for the fact that I couldn't be at DaFunkFest)... I'll be back soon, keep your ear to the ground!

To My Boy album preview!



Here is a preview of the upcoming To My Boy album!
The Habitable Zone Sampler by To My Boy

After taking a brief break the boys are back veering away from the previous new rave tag placed upon them... it's a very new sound full of rich spacey pop perfection that won't leave your head for quite some time... read more in the press below:

To My Boy will release their sophomore album, The Habitable Zone, through their Von Braun imprint on the 31st May 2010.

The follow-up to 2007’s Messages catches the duo of Sam and Jack embarking on a new musical voyage, leaving behind the computer world in search of The Habitable Zone; the area around a star where the conditions to support life are just right. Planet Earth sits in one of these zones, but clings to it by the skin of its teeth, with impending doom in every direction. It's a beautiful but frightening position to be in.

A physicist and songwriter, Jack has been working on an energy device called a ‘Tokamak’ which recreates the conditions of a star on the surface of the earth. This will go on hold next month, as the release of The Habitable Zone brings life back into the beautiful machine and To My Boy.

The Habitable Zone, self-produced in the hills of Derbyshire, has already started receiving favorable press; “To My Boy are back with more winning eccentricity. But this time, it’s less oddball electro-pop, more sad-eyed folktronica...sweetly sad-eyed and lovely” (NME), as well as plays on John Kennedy’s XFM ‘Xposure’ and Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 Music shows.

The video for lead single, ‘Hello Horizon’, is now available to view online. This will be followed by the full release of the album on physical and digital formats on Monday 31st May.
