Suwannee Hulaween is one annual boutique gathering that is developing a devout following with its expert curation and wildly magical grounds. The Halloween weekend festival, running from October 26-28, 2018, hosts an impressive talent roster that brings an exceptional mixture of jamtronica, emergent bass, and deep house to The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida.

Set in the midst of 800-acres of Spanish moss-draped oak and cypress along the black Suwannee River, and complete with the largest bat house in the southeast US, the storied festival grounds have earned a reputation of inexplicable imagination and exploration. 

Sitting atop this year’s festival billing is the longtime host band of the festival The String Cheese Incident, plus a top billing of Grammy award winners and nominees featuring live-electronic front runners ODESZA, a South-East exclusive by modern funk icons Jamiroquai, and very special showing by singer-songwriter Janelle Monae on the wake of her blowout Dirty Computer record.

The star-studded billing continues with the reigning king of west coast bass Tipper, five piece American funk band Vulfpeck, multiple sets by leaders of the post-rock dance movement STS9, the alternative radio chart topping wonder of The Revivalists, dark-electro wunderkind Rezz, plus the unique electronic stylings of Gramatik, NGHTMRE, Troyboi, Snakehips, Emancipator Ensemble, Manic Focus & the MF’n Band, Justin Martin, Kill Frenzy, Eats Everything and many more.

Riding high of the release of their latest single, “Cruzin,” Snakehips have unveiled the first part in a trilogy of mini movies. The “Stay Home Tapes” trilogy will be released alongside singles from their forthcoming EP of the same name.

“The EP is a bunch of tunes that we made after a crazy few years of touring and travelling the world,” said the duo in a statement. “We called it ‘Stay Home’ as a kinda jokey way to express all the mad stuff you experience and the bizarre characters you meet along the way, and throughout that trying to stay true to yourself.”

According to the producers, the video goes along with the eclectic, chilled out track, too: “It’s a crazy narrative that we cooked up with director Can Evgin based on an Asian woman’s journey through some incredibly trippy shit!”

Sam Smith – Too Good At Goodbyes (Snakehips Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Snakehips made a name for themselves for savvy, ebullient RnB originals and remixes that are both sexy and energetic. They also have a proven ear for selecting strong vocalists. It should be no surprise then, that the duo have been tabbed to remix Sam Smith’s “Too Good At Goodbyes.”

Intriguingly, the production duo lean into the melancholy of the track’s vocals, creating a rolling, enrapturing remix that is an outlier in their oeuvre. It is an indication of their production breadth and talent that they are able to so thoroughly move away from their normal style to create a mellow track that is as thoughtful and listenable as their take on Sam Smith’s original is.

Lana Del Rey – Summer Bummer (Snakehips Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

This summer would have been an unbelievable bummer had Snakehips not picked up Lana Del Rey and longtime collaborator A$AP Rocky‘s smooth summer hit. Luckily, the Uk duo has given the track their quintessential slithery smooth reworking just in the knick of time.

Letting Lana’s voice guide listeners through the track until A$AP comes around with his verse, Snakehips waits to strike with a bubbly bass pickup until near halfway through. Showcasing their knack for originality without straying too far from the track’s original integrity, Snakehips proves sometimes it’s best to wait and strike your prey until is least expecting.
