Leslie Feist

Yesterday evening I was watching Live at the rehearsal Studio and I was reminded as to why I love Canadian starlet, Leslie Feist. Her soulful voice is a throw-back to lost times, which pays homage to many great voices of the 40s and 50s, like Edith Piaf. While she embraces the past, Feist effortlessly storms into the future as she incorporates electronic sounds into her music for our modern musings, which is why her tunes might have become an instrument of remixery by many masters’ of the art, like Diplo, Boys Noize, LifeLike, Van She Tech and fellow Canadian electro pop duo, Chromeo.

Feist – My Moon, My Man
Feist – 1234 (Vanshe Tech Rmx)
Feist – I Feel it All (Diplo Rmx)

Let the beat rock.

So I’m still watching everyone’s fav reality dance comp and this Boys Noize mix of BEP‘s Let The Beat Rock drops. I initially cocked my head and awkwardly said, whah??? Partially because the sounds seem to deviate from what both BEP and BN typically produce, and partially because I totally liked it. This unlikely marriage bouts quite well with my ears. Give it a shot for your self.

Cut Copy Countdown – from months, to days, to hours.

Only 4 hours of work, 4 hours of driving and 4 hours of getting ready in a hotel room with a whole bunch of girls before the big show. All the lights and music are sure to set hearts on fire. I expect it to be one unforgettable evening to kick of one unforgettable season.  Happy first day of Spring!

“Listen to the voice that says alright
this is start and not the end tonight”

I sure am! In precisely 28 days to the minute I will be somewhere between my hometown, Otown, and T.dot to witness the magnificent boys from down under,Cut Copy, take the stage at the amusement park-like super club, Circa.

Here’s the one that started it all for me,

Cut Copy – Hearts on Fire
