VELVET TUX - CREOLE (KEVIN PARRISH REMIX)
My friends at work begin to drool when they hear a girl with a Spanish accent. It’s like watching that wolf character on Looney Tunes when his jaw hits the floor and and a horn begins to honk. I didn’t exactly understand the fascination until I heard Velvet Tux's newest release.
Dripping with sexuality, the female vocalist beckons. Not necessarily singing, and technically unintelligible to the English-only listener, it doesn’t really matter.
While the original serves laid-back, cheeky synths and garage percussion on a silver platter, Kevin Parrish's remix heightens the sexual tension already present. You can't help but find yourself half-drunk in some dimly-lit, middle-of-nowhere bar, watching the girl in cutoff denim shorts and a black tank top dancing under the multicolored festive lights strung from the ceiling.
Chasing Toulouse is a new label, quickly getting their feet wet in the scene with their first release. Grab this EP for free by liking their Facebook page, you won’t be mad about it.
FENBRED - PYRAMIDS [120bpm]
About a year ago I was a really fucking good “blogger.” Diligent, insatiable, and compulsive to say the least. A track a day, Monday through Friday.
And it was because I was mining for gold like this.
Fenbred has produced a song that makes me physically anxious with the need to share. It makes me pray that someone else understands how affected I am spiritually when listening to it.
Emotional. Dance. Music.
What the fuck else could you possibly mean by “EDM”?
Curated by Petit Records, only 300 people will end up owning the physical manifestation of this track. They’re the passionate people I want to be surrounded with. Not the club-kid acquaintances, or the basic-at-best eye candy on the dancefloor.
I wanna be with the people that never stop hunting.

It was sunset in the desert. We couldn’t see five feet in front of us all day as the dust storms were raging through the playa. I ventured off alone, praying the dust would settle as the night arrived and the party would start.
I could hear a DJ spinning deep house off in the distance; a beacon of hope amidst the onslaught of awful, drug-addled electro that littered the streets. I found myself dancing to DJ Hohme's set; one that would cause a panic and excitement I couldn't possibly have foreseen.
The heart-wrenching vocals of Allure began filtering into his continuous mix, saying “holding me, touching me, I don’t want nobody else” as the dust began to settle. The anxiety was peaking as I couldn’t bear not knowing who produced the song, and would be without technology or connection to the music world for another five days.
This subsided as the song reached its peak and I allowed myself to just feel it; wholly enveloped by every note. The rest is history.
Turns out it was Finnebassen’s “Touching Me,” as was discovered by the immediate google search performed once we returned to humanity. I dove head-first into every single track I could get my hands on, and have been listening to nearly nothing else for the past month.
It only made sense to create a continuous mix out of his current discography. With the official release of his “What You Do EP" tomorrow, I thought it good timing to present an homage and a celebration of the artist.
Dive deep into the work of Finnebassen, and enjoy the mix.
