Rad Playlist – 2018 So Far

leave a comment »


Digital playlists: are they worth anything? They’re more popular as memes than anything else. That says something about their status within modern culture, right? Whatever…

I just made a playlist but I’m thinking of it as a mixtape cause I burned it to a CD. It has to have been close to five years since I last burned a CD. When was the last time you made a playlist? Burned a CD? Or made a mixtape? Try to remember, and take a moment to appreciate the value of physical formats. The care and concern that goes into moving music from the digital ether into the physical realm is an effort worth treasuring. Be sure to indulge in music you can hold in your hands every once in a while. Like the playlist below…

2018 So Far

Tyrannosaurus RAD needs some tunes

leave a comment »

Check out this rad Tyrannosaurus rex rendition by Joao Lauro Fonte. Here’s what he had to say about it:

When flicking through Thless catalogue, I found it sort of lacking more ‘rad’ designs, with bold colors. So, for my first submission to this comp, I tried to think of a character that would scream ‘coolness’ and then rendered it with vibrant, modern colors. This fella ended up being the coolest thing I could think of, hope you like it.

Very rad. I mean, come on…T-Rex on a skateboard? Who can doubt his radness?

I definitely felt a pull from the past when looking at this design. I think Daniel LaRusso could have easily rocked this as a T-shirt. This T-Rex is so strikingly rad, a rad song instantly popped into my head upon first look. Fred Falke and Alan Braxe are among the French elite when it comes to electronic music and their song “Rubicon” (2004) is the pinnacle of radness. No joke. Put this song any time of day or night and some magic will happen. I seriously wouldn’t doubt that Mr. Tyrannosaurus RAD has this song playing in his head right now.

If you’ve read this blog at all, you ought to know that I have a soft spot for Florrie. I won’t go into how I think she’s an ideal pop star or how her music is fantastic – oh wait, I just did. Anywho, Florrie gives out ALL her music for free on her website and she recently announced some remixes of her new songs from two heavy hitting producers.

Fred Falke is no stranger to Florrie, but I’m always glad to hear another remix of his. Mr. Falke put his French hands all over “Give Me Your Love” and “You Wanna Start Something.” I must be honest – I’m not too impressed by either of these remixes. He just extended the edits and didn’t add much flavor – the originals stand out more, especially “Give Me Your Love.” Thinking about it now, maybe that was his point as they are “club edits” – I don’t know, what do you think them?

Then we have remix extraordinaire Justin Faust – he gives “Give Me Your Love” a proper remix that makes it a disco approved dance classic. Gotta love a good remix. Check it out below.

Florrie is an amazing 21 year old female artist from Bristol, England. She is not signed to any major music label but gosh darn it, she really deserves to be. Not only can she sing and write music, but she plays the drums! Move over Karen Carpenter, Florrie is here! With the help of house legend Fred Falke, she has been dropping tracks that are worthy tunes not only for the radio but definitely the dance floor too. Check out two tracks of her’s below and prepare to be hooked. Florrie + Fred Falke = pop music love.

Florrie – Call 911 (Fred Falke Remix)

Florrie – Panic Attack (Fred Falke Extended Remix)

Be sure to check out Florrie’s website to get the skinny on her as well as more free tracks.

Be Rad. Enjoy
