Magic Tape 54
If you’re music connoisseur, then you’re no stranger to the legendary DJ mix series, DJ Kicks. The compilation series has been around since 1995 and has featured some incredible DJs.
Stepping alongside the likes of Vikter Duplaix, Chromeo, Maya Jane Coles, Stacy Pullen, and Thievery Corporation, DJ Koze is making some much-needed noise with this DJ Kicks compilation.
This is the 50th release in the mix series and it certainly never ceases to amaze. The album has a lot of really solid tracks, but the standout track “I Haven’t Been Everywhere But It’s On My List” now has a cool music video.
You might not have been everywhere, but this video will make you want to go somewhere.
If you ever find yourself up at 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning and looking for some crazy EDM music videos, then tune into MTV’s Clubland. Why? Because most of the videos they air are crazy good, while some videos will leave you with a dumbfounded WTF look.
A video that is bound to leave you saying “what the hell did I just watch” is this set of crazy animated visuals from Hitchhiker.
Before we dive into the video, let’s talk about the song. The track is called “11(Eleven)” and it’s an EDM number that is beyond repetitive. Yet, despite how repetitive it is, I actually kind of like it. It has subtle hints of trap moments that send you into a groove. But the high pitched chanting might get on your nerves, so if that’s the case then don’t play this too loud.
Alright, so how about these visuals? Where do I even begin? It reminds me of a 90s rave meets The Sims. And you know what, I’m not even sure if that description makes sense…so let’s cut to the chase.
Watch this crazy ass video.
UK producer, Jax Jones, will surely bring a smile to your face with his refreshing new video for his single “Yeah Yeah Yeah.”
In the music video, we see a group of skaters taking their babies out for a leisurely stroller ride, or shall I say an epic stroller ride? Personally, I don’t recall having that much fun when I was a cute toddler, but this video shows off a fun hipster side of parenthood.
Check it out:
Yeah Yeah Yeah
Borderline soul infused with hints of drum & bass, Rudimental are bringing some major vibes with their new single, “Rumour Mill.”
What I would describe as a playful love story, this track features singers Will Heard and Anne-Marie in an intoxicating duet.
Furthermore, you can experience the soulful vibes by watching the new music video.
Working through your lunch-break and need a pick me up? Then get in the zone with this heavy dosage of pure magic from The Magician.
That’s right, the next installment in the “Magic Tape” series is here, and it’s full of stellar originals & remixes.
