Wednesday, May 15, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Random Access Memories
Climb aboard Daft Punk’s sonic starship as the futuristic duo unveil a mix of throwback grooves and trippy dance tracks with their latest album Random Access Memories. It almost serves as a f*ck you to the overindulged electronic sounds on blast at clubs by revisiting the beginnings of disco, paying homage to legend Giorgio Morodor (the mastermind writer/producer behind Donna Summer, Bowie and Debbie Harry classics to name a few). Throw in one particularly addictive ’70s-influenced beat from Pharrell, appropriately titled Get Lucky, into the mix for a time-traveling journey that spans from early funk and disco to dance tracks infused with rock, pop and house. Though the album officially drops 5/21, you can stream it on iTunes now, so get ready to break out the glitter platforms and we’ll meet you on the dance floor…

Thursday, April 25, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: She’s A Lady
Nicole Wray and Terri Walker, the soulful songbirds behind Lady, aren’t exactly new to the scene—even if their group would be found squarely in the “emerging” category. But these two have been working—by which they mean exercising those pitch perfect vocal chords—in the industry for years with the likes of Missy Elliot, The Black Keys and Mos Def to name a few. With this new project, produced and released by Williamsburg’s Truth and Soul Records, Lady’s poised to make some major waves with their own style of completely fresh, dance floor-ready, soul R&B.
