ANALOGUE MONSTA – TIME TO (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

Filed under: Electronic, music, music video | Tags: , ,

We knew something was up as soon as we heard the first “analogue monsta mix” way back in 2011. Since I hold both Tokimonsta and Suzi Analogue in high esteem … I am not surprised their first collaborative effort turned out so well.  Suzi’s NNXTAPE is still on very heavy rotation and Tokimonsta’s “Darkest Dim” still has this surreal feel to it, that makes you want to listen to it over and over again. Needless to say I am anxious to hear a lot more from  Anologue Monsta, a merge of two ladies with their own distinctive take on electronic music.

I have to say that the blend of undividual styles is more accessible  than the electronic composition Suzi Analogue and Tokimonsta come up with when they produce solo.  But maybe that is because I only have this track to go on. The thing is that you’ll find that in this case accessability does not mean it ain’t totally fresh …



JAI PAUL – JASMINE (AUDIO STREAM) by Noggy

If you are not familiar with Jai Paul … my bad, cause I failed to introduce you to this London based artist last year. In Jai Paul’s case the music is basically the only thing we have to go on. There seems to be an air of mystery surrounding this artist cause other than his singer songwriter and producer skills thereis not much I can tell you about him.

To fans he is best known for his 2010 release BSTU, the track that put him on the map (for me).

BSTU by Jai Paul

After the 2010 smasher I hadn’t heard much from Jai Paul. That is up until 13 hours ago … Out of nowhere he hit fans up with a stream for his latest “Jasmine“. Even though it has a slightly different electronic feel, I’d have to say the man created another banger..

Jennifer Lee a.k.a Tokimonsta has finally released a video for the standout track from last years “Creature Dreams EP” … “Darkest Dim”. Both the L.A. beatsmith,Tokimonsta and Gavin Turek, the girl who does the dreamy vocals are featured in the video. With the help of director Doug Chang a  3.26 minute dream adventure is created.

The story is that Tokimonsta (The Dream Curator) carefully manages the playlist of Gavin Turek’s (The Sleeper) dreams throughout the night using her grippers. When Tokimonsta accidentally breaks a dream card in half using her hand, she discovers a newfound possibility of remixing broken pieces of dream cards together to deliver Gavin the most beautiful dream she ever had.

You can find each and every possible detail of the video on darkestdim.blogspot.com ….



JAMES BLAKE LIVE ALBUM (FREE DOWNLOAD ) by Noggy

DOWNLOAD: JAMES BLAKE ‘S LIVE ALBUM

Even though 2012 is shaping up to be a wonderful year in music … I don’t mind looking back if it’s James Blake we are talking about. The British singer-songwriter, producer has come  a long way since he started his musical career by releasing a string of impressive mainly dubstep oriented EP’s from his bedroom. He actually started his musical career when he was in his final year at Goldsmiths, University of London where he studied popular music.

Well it’s almost 3 years since his first release … an EP by the name of  “Air and Lack Thereof” but I think it’s safe to say that after his selftitled debut album he has arrived. The album was, to say the least, slightly different from all his previous releases but was pretty well received nontheless.

I guess Mr. Blake wanted to show his ever growing amount of fans a little bit of gratitude when he provided them with the link for an unofficial FreeLP . The FreeLP can be downloaded from his Tumblr site and features live versions of I think every track on his album. kudos to Pinboardblog for providing us with the soundcloud stream.

Even though the whole release is worth while … track 14 “love what Happened Here”  is the one that really floats my boat.

Enjoy!!

It’s been a while since I’ve heard from Pardon the Stranger, the new Jersey duo I introduced y’all to about 7 months ago.

They are back with a soulful electronic freebie “Snow is Gone”, a track that will most definitely warm you up to their sound.

if you press the arrow on the right side of the soundcloud music wave (you know…the small one underneath the info button) you can download this straight to your computer!!

DOWNLOAD: SINDEN X JESSE BOYKINS – IN HIGH DEMAND EP

I didn’t hesitate to retweet soolcrooner Jesse Boykins a few days ago when he presented ‘In High Demand”. Just like I know this Sinden x Jesse Boykins collab is a must share.

At the time I wasn’t aware of the fact that this was just one of 4 tracks of the “In High Demand” Ep. It is safe to say that the  “Brenmar remix” seems to be everybody’s favorite , since this freebee has surfaced on quite few blogs already.

Best is to stream the whole EP and decide which “In High Demand” suits you ..

CHAGALL – BREATHE (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

Even though Chagall seems to be more of an electro pop songstress (something the Strangefruitmusicblog tends to avoid) … I’ve got this feeling we have to keep an eye on this 23 year old Amsterdam based artist.

Chagall’s EP officially dropped today and of course it’s available on iTunes. Since I’m not a big fan of snippets you can click here to listen to her debut release in full. The funny thing about this release is that the bonus track “Breathe” happens to be the banger and if you ask me this should be Chagall’s signature sound ..



AZTEKA – i2i by Noggy

I’ve been streaming this 80’s infused funkalicious tune for the past few days and now the time has come to be less selfish and without further ado present Rotterdam based DJ/Producer/Songwriter Azteka  …

Inspired by Stevie Wonder, Zapp, The GAP Band, Daft Punk, Guy, Earth Wind & Fire and lots of other funky stuff Azteka has created his own distinctive sound that is best described as a fresh breeze that smoothly connects the past with the future.

Worth of warning before you stream  …”i2i” is kind of addictive ..

I’ve been a hardcore BUG fan ever since “20 Winks” and after he unleashed tha very groovy Satisva  … I decided to become a fan for life.

DOWNLOAD: AMP LIVE – YOU ARE NOT HUMAN (THE LOVE EP)

Very appreciative of this free download by Amp Live. Love the predominantly jazz infused glitchy beats with a little Hip Hop here and there.

It’s been a while since “Murder at the Discotech” and I’m pleased to see that he’s moved on to something a little less obvious and a bit more experimental. This Ep has a lot of pleasant surprises.

Azealia Banks is a 19-year-old lyricist from Harlem, NYC and at this point I haven’t got much on this young lady except for her very fresh visuals for her track 212!! The track was a free download on her soundcloud page … but when you press play you will immediately understand why it says “this track has reached it’s download limit”.

Mrs Banks knows that she’s got a banger with “212” that is why she posted a download link on her facebook fan page, so old and new fans can have this one on repeat.

Meet Christopher Breaux better known as Frank Ocean. This name might not ring a bell now but believe me it will. This twenty something dude has already written songs for Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Brandy and someone who is more my flavah … John Legend.

This year he is been making waves all over the blogosphere. Not only as a member of the Odd Future clan (yep …with Tyler, the creator) but he also released a mixtape by name of Nostlagia, Ultra which was pretty well received.

Anyways keep an eye on him … cause this dude is going places….
