Galantisconsist of two members with names like Style of Eye (Linus Eklöw) andBloodshy ( Christian Karlsson) what kind of music can you expect with a song calledPeanut Butter and Jelly? Great sounds, thats what. They created a buzz when they were granted an uncommon opportunity to perform at Coachella. Coachella is a huge music festival that only the best of the best get to perform. A fact about this duo is Boodshy is a song writer and producer. He help reinvent Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, and Madonna.
Peanut Butter and Jelly is a fun upbeat song, doesn’t have to make sense. Does anything make sense anyways? There mascot doesn’t make sense either. They seem to be more then cat lovers. There taste is very majestic, with a cat’s body and a fish face. I don’t think they want us to think much and just let go. Perhaps his trying to help us reinvent ourselves also. Karlsson said “GALANTIS is about challenging, not following”.
Don’t judge her tiny figure, she comes with huge talent and great music! Alison Wonderland (Alex Scholler) is taking the U.S by her madness. She has been part of Coachella and Mad Decent’s line ups. This Sydney native is signed by EMI Music Australia and Astralwerks (an American label company). On Mad Decent’s website they called her “one of the most influential producers in the region”.
Producing her new album Run, it has almost 5 stars on iTunes. You may think she thinks of ” 6 impossible things before breakfast” (Alice in Wonderland). Her Album is electronic with a perfect dash of wonder. Her most popular songs are Run and You Don’t Know. I can only see her climbing up the music charts or even making Dj Mag’s top 100 Djs. She is one of a kind, you cannnot say she is copying anyones style or sound. Her Album is a different kind of electronic music.
A great experience at The Mid – Chicago by Alison Wonderland along with Hoodboi. Her first time in Chicago and hopefully not the last. She had the crowd going wild, playing her new album and mixes. The crowd never once stopped dancing. Her energy was intense you would think her soul was following the rabbit into the turntables. Perhaps her goal was to make us all mad.
PHANTOGRAM is the electronic psych pop duo from upstate New York, comprised of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel. Their music is a blend of head-knocking, unique street beat sounds with psychedelic melodies. Sarah sings lead vocals, plays the keyboard, and co-writes all of the songs with Josh, who also does vocals, creates beats and plays the guitar. The band has released three studio albums Eyelid Movies in 2009, Nightlife in 2011 and Voicesin 2014.
When I’m small opens up with a hip-hop beat then adds guitar with a pop rhythm that latches on next by the second verse. The bass line establishes the vibe of a deep tempo leaving the rest of the track to cause a reaction. Whether a person only likes only a certain genre, many different genres are fused together in this song producing one sound. It also tells the story of an abused woman and her inner conflict concerning her abusive partner.
The real meaning of Phantogram is an optical illusion; but in this case the video is also a non-concrete image, merged with music, art and fashion. This is just another way of the duo introducing themselves to the world. Fall in Love explains how a woman can also be the heart breaker. A man can fall in love with a woman on the flip side the woman may not feel the same way ‘Cause you were falling…..I’m sorry baby 🙁
What’s next for Phantogram
Phantogram is currently making appearances on night time television shows with popular well-known artist such as Big Boi from OutKast, performing at shows across America like the Hangout Festival, Lollapalooza, Coachella and they will be appearing at Electric Forest this year in June. Follow Phantogram below and keep up with their latest music activity!
“I promised I’d do a remix for Ella. Couldn’t be happier with it :)” Harley Edward Streten posts on his twitter and we couldn’t be happier with it as well! Better known for DJ/producer name Flume, this track was unleashed unto the crowd at Coachella in a blaze of glory. The Australian producer who obviously has a good ear when it comes to making bangin beats and euphoric instrumentals picks the perfect candidate to remix. Lorde‘s track Tennis Court takes on a new vibe when Flume adds his signature touch to it that will send shivers down your spine.

Nest HQ is keepin it at deep house and future bass vibes with another release this time by Worthy. With a history already full of ridiculous EP releases, this producer from San Francisco is only starting to showoff his creative potential. In an interview on the Nest HQ platform Worthy talks about his experience at Coachella, the creative process in making his Hit Me EP and his up coming album Disbehave, which is set to be released this June.
Just coming back from playing with the Dirtybird Label crew (in which he helped form with Claude VonStroke and Justin & Christian Martin in 2001) on The Do Lab stage at Coachella, Worthy is proving to be a busy man. Just releasing Hit Me he is also finishing up the long process of getting his album Disbehavetogether. “It is a bit experimental and chiller than what most people will expect from me”. He goes on to say, “My overall goal with the album is to give myself a platform in which to reach a broader audience and show people the range of music I can create.”
Worthy‘s Hit Me EP is Nest HQ’s 2nd free release with AC Slater debuting its first. But you cannot compare the two completely for Worthy’s sound is real unique. With what he calls “Booty Future House” this 2 track ep will definitely keep the ladies on the dance floor shakin their thangs. Just a couple of vocal samples, some deep basslines and old school break beats and Worthy has added a couple of masterpieces to his playlist. I’m excited to see what this guy has in store with for us in his upcoming album. Should be worth waiting for!
Check out & download the EP below and read the creative process in making Hit Me in full detail in the interview here.
