NEW MUSIC | CHET FAKER - 1998 from RaveFaced.com

NEW MUSIC | CHET FAKER - 1998

built_on_glass

So much good music coming out of Australia recently, this time it’s producer Chet Faker. This Melborne native has really been making a name for himself, worldwide. From his “No Diggity” cover to his collaboration “What About Us” with fellow Aussie producer Flume, he’s been becoming the Australian face of fusing soulful electronic music with R&B. The track “1998″ derives off of Chet Faker‘s new full-length album “Built On Glass” and is a super chill track with a super addictive bass line. In addition, it has mesmerizing synth progressions along with his signature vocals that are lyrically emotional describing a relationship that is no longer what it used to be. Nevertheless, even though the lyrics are sort of saddening, the sound of this song is that classic Aussie house that we’ve all been hearing recently, so I encourage you to take a listen as you may be able to relate!

NEWS | ARMIN VAN BUUREN FORCED TO CANCEL ARMIN ONLY CHICAGO SHOW

Sad news comes from the Van Buuren camp today as Armin has announced he is cancelling his Armin Only event in Chicago. After a long battle with cancer, Armin’s step-father has passed away causing Armin to return home for a short while. The event was scheduled to take place on April 17 and full refunds will be available to ticket holders. Armin will return on tour April 19 for his show in Toronto as scheduled. Armin took to Twitter to apologize to fans and inform them of the news.

https://twitter.com/arminvanbuuren/status/456160801821171713

Alda Events has issued this statement via Armin’s website:

Due to the recent passing of Armin van Buuren’s father-in-law after a lengthy battle with cancer, ALDA Events (the producer of Armin Only) and Live Nation regretfully announce that the show set to take place this Thursday, April 17th at United Center has been cancelled. Everything has been done to try and avoid this cancellation, however due to several factors this is not going to be possible. While Armin feels terrible about the cancellation, it is crucial for him to be with family this week leading up to the funeral this Friday.

ALDA Events, Live Nation, Armada Music and David Lewis Productions would like to express their sincere condolences to the family, and request that the privacy of the family be respected during this incredibly difficult time.

Refunds for the April 17th show are available at the point of purchase. The Armin Only tour will resume Saturday, April 19th in Toronto as planned.

NEW MUSIC | DUCK SAUCE - QUACK (ALBUM)

duck sauce copy

blank 10

A-Trak & Armand Van Helden first splashed on the scene as Duck Sauce with the breakout hit “aNYway,” a breath of fresh disco air in the distorted world of electronic music. Next up was “Barbra Streisand,” a surprise global #1 smash and true pop culture milestone, complete with 70 million (and counting…) YouTube views, a Grammy nomination, and even a Glee cover! DS cemented their rep as dance music’s official pranksters with MTV VMA-nominated clips like “It’s You” (6 million views) and scene-stealing festival appearances accompanied by a 20-foot inflatable duck… yet all of this was just to set the stage for Quack, Duck Sauce’s highly-anticipated full length studio debut. Fueled by the duo’s strong connection with New York hip-hop, Chicago house, disco debauchery, slapstick comedy and, of course, UFOs, no other group is capable of bringing the rich and visual tradition of sample-heavy music into the current pop and EDM trends of 2014. QUACK IS BACK!

NEW MUSIC | DISCLOSURE x FRIEND WITHIN - THE MECHANISM

Disclosure_RVFCD

Wellp…the two UK brothers are are still buzzing off their incredible Coachella performance, closing out weekend 1 of the massive festival and creating big time memories by bringing out a could suprises during their set to help them out with some vocals. The first of guest appearances on the stage with Disclosure was Aluna Francis of Aluna George to sing on their hit track “White Noise”. Not too much time had passed after that when the 2nd guest appears on the stage. This time it’s international superstar Mary J. Blige to perform with the guys on their remix together of “F For You”. Directly after she smashes her parts of the song, it’s time for Disclosure to close out their set and they decide to do it with none other than…you guessed it…“Latch” with their UK buddy, Sam Smith doing his thing on verses of the track.

But Guy & Howard didn’t play one song which I was really hoping to hear in their set.  That song would be their newly released track on their SoundCloud which it titled “The Mechanism”.

disclosure-the-mechanism

Guy & Howard are soo musically talented that I don’t think there is anything they can’t do! For this one, “The Mechanism”, they teamed up with fellow UK local producer that goes by the name of Friend Within. In this feel good collaboration, you can tell that the song brings out the strengths in both of the artists as they fuse together a mix of the classical deep house delight with very appealing tech house vibrations and an absolutely immaculate bass line doe. I can’t wait to start hearing this in live sets by Disclosure because this one will truly slap the crowd in the face with these womps out of no where.

You can enjoy the stream below before it is available for digital download on Tuesday, April 15th via Beatport. Enjoy & get DOWN!

NEW MUSIC | NEW WORLD SOUND & TIMMY TRUMPET - THE BUZZ

The latest from Australian duo New World Sound comes in the form of a collab with Timmy Trumpet. “The Buzz” takes a page from the electro swing genre while still providing the big room style New World Sound brought out in their hit “Flute.” Drawing on the sounds of artists like Parov Stellar, Caravan Palace, and Grant Lazlo the electro swing genre has been continuously growing in the underground. Bringing in influences from the insanely popular progressive big room sound will no doubt help emerge this looked over genre and with almost 20k plays in 2 days it seems to be well on its way.

New World Sound & Timmy Trumpet – “The Buzz” is out now on Doorn records. Stream it below and purchase a copy via Beatport.
