Millionyoung's Home Drive Sunrise :: Exclusive Playlist for HOC

Miami's own and personal friend of OTR Millionyoung made an Exclusive Spotify Playlist for the folks over at House of Creatives in honor of their upcoming festival in which he will be performing and which has also added even more acts (check out the updated flyer above). The playlist is called Home Drive Sunrise and features Millionyoung's favorite tracks to listen to on his way home from a long night out. Very chill/cool stuff!

Check out that playlist below, and if you haven't already done so now is your last chance to purchase the Early Bird Passes for $99 here.    

House of Creatives Inaugural Music Festival

Our friends over at House of Creatives are getting ready for their Inaugural Music Festival and for the first one they got some major star power! I'm particularly psyched for Flaming Lips who I don't think have ever played South Florida before (at least that I could remember). Also on the bill are Crystal Castles (with a new singer), Breakbot, The Drums, Empress Of, Pompeya and many more. Pretty excited for this!

Early bird passes for both days go on sale Friday, Oct the 7th for $99 and can be purchased here. Highly recommend you pick those up asap as I'm not sure how many will be available, and this is one festival you're not gonna wanna miss!

Not that you should need much enticing for this festival, but here are a few videos from the headliners to get you psyched for the event. See ya there...

Kimbra :: Sweet Relief

The lovely Kimbra is getting ready to record her third album. In the meantime she wanted to leave us with a little gift, and it goes by the name of "Sweet Relief". A funky little Prince-like jam that will hold us off nicely.

She had this to say about the new single, "This song came from a time of experimentation and newfound creative liberation for me — excited to invite you into that space."

Check out the jam below, and if you like what you hear it is available for purchase on iTunes.

The Gift :: Love Without Violins ft Brian Eno

As I was listening to an NPR podcast today I ran into this new single by Portuguese band The Gift called "Love Without Violins" ft Brian Eno. Anything with Brian Eno's name attached to it instantly gets my attention and this song did not not disappoint, it blew me away! It starts out with these dark sinister synths/drums and deep dark vocals which at first I thought were Brian Eno's, but it turns out to be the vocals of Sonia Tavares, The Gift's lead vocalist. Then around the 2:43 min mark the track does a total flip and turns into a poppy melodic tune as Brian Eno's vocals come in. So good!

Seems like Flood of Depeche Mode fame mixed the track which further explains why I love this so. I mean Brian Eno + Flood = Heaven.

Check out the tune and their gorgeous video for the track below. Be careful playing the video at work, as it contains some brief nudity. The EP is officially released September 30th and can be purchased on iTunes.

Monterrey :: Neon

Miami artist Monterrey is getting ready to release his debut 2 track EP entitled Neon today (9/25) and it is smoking! Some amazing synthwave sounds which I can easily picture being played on a show like Stranger Things or the movie Drive, particularly the tilte track "Neon". All you retrowave lovers like myself are gonna love it!

Check out "Neon" and "Round and Round" below. You can also check out his tunes on spotify or purchase them on iTunes or bandcamp

Happy Sunday!!

Luxxury :: What Do Ya Really Want?

Totally loving Luxxury's new track/video for "What Do Ya Really Want?" It is smoothness to the Nth power, and we can't get enough. Check out the goodness below...

Factory Floor :: 25 25

Found out about this really cool London duo Factory Floor today on the NPR podcast. Their song "Ya" from their upcoming album 25 25 reminds me of early 90's techno/acid music. Great minimal electronic track with pumping beats suitable for a sweaty dance floor near you. 

Their album 25 25 comes out next week (8/19) on DFA Records. You can pre-order it on iTunes.

Scope out their video for "Ya" below...
