Childish Gambino – Telegraph Ave (Louis Futon & Louis The Child Flip)

This post was originally published on this site

The Louises didn’t waste any time releasing this flip of Childish Gambino‘s “Telegraph Ave.” Louis Futon had asked fans which song he and Louis The Child should flip while on tour together, answering with a video of the flipping process from the back of their Last To Leave tour bus.

There was no word on whether or not it would officially be released, yet it looks like it only took an Instagram story and jam sesh (plus a day or two of waiting) to get the rework out there. The flip is also up for free download on SoundCloud.

The trio use a looped vocal sample from the original, plus some sung and rapped verses, to accompany a deep bass-line and high-pitched key synths. Futon even throws in some funky electric guitar toward the end, topping off the masterpiece.

Dillstradamus is back with ‘Tern It Up’

This post was originally published on this site

For those who like hard drops and dirty chords, there are few bigger names than Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus. The two artists started teasing a collaboration after Josh Young and Curt Cameruci of Flosstradamus split this past summer, leaving Cameruci as the sole member of the moniker. Their collaboration, which is titled “Tern It Up” is finally here.

The track starts with trap chords, bass synths, and a build that ebbs and flows throughout the first half of the song. Electronic chords come in halfway through the track, heightening the energy and fall into a more elaborate trap drop. “Tern It Up” is a track built to be dropped during a set, and fans can expect to hear this one in the club for months to come.

Music creation platform Splice announces artists have raised $5 million distributing sounds

This post was originally published on this site

Over the last four years, music creation and collaboration platform Splice has aimed to connect artists and producers with world-class production tools, creative assets, and a global community of potential collaborators.

Now, the artist hub has announced payouts of $5 million to its participating acts, which is an enormous win for the artistic community. Splice’s announcement also comes with news that the platform is securing a sound future, after securing $35 million in funding to continue to fuel its growth and expansion.

“Our mission is simple: to help musicians maximize their potential,” says Splice CEO and co-founder Steve Martocci in a press release. “Our vision is big: to transform the way musicians create and collaborate, to foster a culture of openness in music, and to uncover new revenue streams for artists through artist-to-artist marketplaces.”

Splice soars above its contemporaries in its extensive royalty-free sample library. Presently, artists like Mr. Oizo and KRANE have monetized their sounds, allowing other producers to experiment with their productions on the platform. The platform’s success and artist-centric mantra points to enormous ways in which other platforms can monetize for their artists, something Spotify has struggled with tremendously over the years. Splice implemented monetization of revenue channels like streaming, licensing, and ticket sales.

Post Malone – Congratulations (Filous Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

After having just delivered a diverse testament to his exuberant production penchant with a new EP — For Love — Dutch singer-songwriter Filous quickly followed suit with an impassioned rework of Cimo Fränkel’s “Never Give Up.” Now, the rising artist has enhanced one of the hottest songs of 2016 with his own approach, and it’s a stirring assemblage of vocal ambiance and scintillating guitar strums.

Filous is consistently pointing to his soothing potential in the indie-electro realm with his dulcetly delivered reworks. With his latest breath of life into Post Malone‘s “Congratulations,” it seems Filous is veering down a pathway that indicates some more “Congratulations” will be in order quite soon.

Berghain’s infamous bouncer Sven Marquardt curated a series of experimental videos

This post was originally published on this site

Having manned the doors of Berlin’s legendary dance institution Berghain since its opening in 2004, it’s only right that Sven Marquardt’s presence has become one with the club.

Although, what many don’t know is that the East Berlin native is also an incredibly accomplished photographer. Marquardt’s released a memoir and exhibited artwork at numerous galleries around the world.

Now, he’s taking his curatorial skills beyond his choice black and white stills. Marquardt is the latest profile by the German television station STRRR, who asked him to pick out a number of experimental videos, movie clips, and music, for an episode which gives viewers a closer glimpse into his artistic perspectives.

The episode’s an expectedly invigorating, hour-long experimental video playlist offering a look into the dark mind of one of Berlin’s most perplexing institutions. It also echoes a succinct style, with masterful music from the likes of Iggy Pop, Radiohead, Portishead, Nine Inch Nails, Light Asylum, and more.

Watch here.
