New Artist Alert: Moiez

Moiez is a 20 year old DJ/Producer hailing from British Columbia, Canada. Right now, Moiez is absolutely killing it. His signature progressive house tracks capture your attention, effortlessly keeping you wanting more and more. It’s clear to me that Moiez is here to stay, and 2012 will end up being a huge year for him. Just last week he topped the Hype Machine Charts at #19 (Moiez – You Only Live Once) as I expect him to do the same this week with his new remix Sam La More – I Wish It Could Last (Moiez Remix). The future for Moiez looks bright as there is no denying the talent he brings to the table. I can’t wait to catch him live! Make sure to support Moiez on Facebook as he is a new artist taking off quickly!

Amba Shepherd – Soldier (Alex Engstrom Remix)

After our last post on the up and coming Swedish duos such as Dada Life, Tjernberg and Steerner we’ve brought you another dose of some Swedish love and his name is Alex Engstrom. His latest remix of Amba Shepherd brings a unique twist to the track, bringing great vocal chops, big synth progressions and beautiful piano chords. The Soldier remix will have you putting your hands up and seemingly clicking the replay button. Make sure to ‘Like’ Alex Engstrom on Facebook as he is a new artist. Enjoy!

It was only a week ago that I featured Ummagma‘s debut albums, but I figured that the Canadian-Ukrainian duo deserved another feature. Back in July, Ummagma pulled a bold maneuver and decided to release not one, but two, albums as their introduction to the music world. It’s hard enough to get a lot of people to listen to one full album in a single sitting nowadays, so two albums at once is a bit overwhelming. Fortunately, they’ve been getting quite a bit of good press, and the albums have been picking up some steam. I sat down and listened to both albums back to back before I wrote my original feature, and the payoff was an extremely rewarding listen. So I decided to go ahead and feature some select tracks from both Ummagma’s self-titled album and Antigravity just in case there’s anyone out there who may be somewhat leery of diving into two full length albums. If you’re even the slightest bit interested, then you should really head on over to Ummagma’s Bandcamp to immerse yourself within 24 songs of pure bliss.

Alesso – Years (Millertime Edit)

The last time I featured a Millertime Edit on here, things seriously got crazy. His reworking of Deadmau5’s There Might Be Coffee rocketed up the HypeMachine popular charts to #1, and a wave of EDM and house fans flocked to The Record Stache. Even though I said, “I’m not usually a fan of mash-ups, remixes, or edits,” my email was still flooded with mash-ups, remixes, and edits. Not to mention, the trolls came out like I was one of the Three Billy Goats Gruff trying to cross a bridge. Anyway. I’ve reformatted since then, embraced the new attention, and brought on a writer to focus on mash-ups, remixes, and edits, because I want all of the hard working, deserving musicians to get the attention they deserve. Well, it’s a couple of weeks later and Millertime is back again with another track. This time, he takes the instrumental from Alesso’s Years and throws in Example’s vocals off of Calvin Harris’ We’ll Be Coming Back. This may just be the jam to keep your party going all through the weekend.

Freelance Whales – Locked Out

From: First Song For Your Mixtape

So I recently listened to this fabulous band, a five piece of independent ocean dwelling mammals from Queens NY, and couldn’t get enough of their track ‘Broken Horse’ which has Elliot Smith levels of enchantment to it. Cool story you’re thinking, but wait it gets even better. A follow up album to their gorgeous 2009 release ‘Weathervanes’ is set for release on October 9th and to whet your appetite you can trade your email address for single ‘Locked Out’. That my friends, is a very fair swap indeed because what you get is a mellow 5 minutes of swirling textures and uplifting vocals that sets the bar high for whatever is to follow on ‘Diluvia’ in a few months time. You can download ‘Locked Out’ for free via their official website here… http://freelancewhales.com/

Also, here’s Broken Horse, which isn’t free but you should totally buy because it’s splendid…

Topiq the Smooth Prophet – Topiq of Discussion II (freeverse)

I hope that I’ve been able to get across the amount of talent that the No9to5 hip-hop collective possesses. I even featured JSWISS’ video for his track Daily Conversation just yesterday. These guys just churn out music, it’s almost too hard to keep up with. Recently, Topiq the Smooth Prophet announced an upcoming mixtape, Topiq of Discussion II, that would soon after be followed up with an album. To promote the news, Topiq released this nice freestyle over Kanye’s Get Em High. Give the verse a listen and look for Topiq of Discussion II out November 20th.
