FeelGoodSmalls – Lose Control

Posted by: noble savage on 01/04/2017 in Featured, Music

We are extremely proud to present “Lose Control”, the debut single by our homegirl FeelGoodSmalls. A few months after blessing us with one of the hottest mixes in our exclusive Spotlight Series, Smalls moved out to the UK with our own Willson Sounds on a journey through music and self-discovery. Since then, she’s worked hard and found success as a DJ in London, playing some of the best parties in the city. She also began to hone in on her production skills, earned herself a coveted record deal with Universal/AfterCluv and has been on her studio grind in both London and Miami.

The fruits of her labour can be heard in “Lose Control”, as she crafts a vocal house heater that would bang in any dance environment from big room warehouse parties to beach festivals to a wild condo jam. The bass draws from Smalls’ experience spinning moombahton in Toronto, the melodies draw from her Ibiza tropical house influences, and the piano stabs are a testament to the year she has spent in the London club circuit. The track is rounded out by smooth vocals from Toronto’s own Charlie Black, and the the result is nothing short of incredible. But don’t take our word for it – listen for yourself and check back in after you realize you’ve had the song on repeat for the entire day. FeelGoodSmalls is the name. Commit it to memory. She is here to stay.

PREMIERE: Dom Dias – (–/–/16) Throwaway EP

Posted by: noble savage on 30/12/2016 in Featured, Music

dom-dias-throwaway-ep

To say Dom Dias is one of the hardest working producers in Toronto is an understatement. In 2016 alone, we had the privilege of premiering and posting 10 of his projects, including some stellar originals, remixes, and EPs. On top of his musical output, Dom played some of the biggest electronic music shows in the city alongside heavyweights like Snakehips, Ookay, THUGLI, and more. 2016 has been a hell of a year for the kid, and he is closing it out by letting go of his (–/–/16) Throwaway EP. The release contains six previously unreleased original demos that Dom has been dropping throughout his sets, and vary from hiphop instrumentals to 128 BPM dancehall/baile funk-influenced electronic bangers. The best part about the drop is that it’s absolutely free. So, if you haven’t already become familiar with Dom Dias in 2016, now’s your chance to start 2017 off on the right foot. To Dom, we’d just like to say: may the new year bring you continued growth and success in both your musical and personal endeavours – we’ll be here to support as always! Stream below and get the free download via Dropbox.

PREMIERE: Mura Masa – Love$ick (Dom Dias Remix)

Posted by: noble savage on 08/11/2016 in Featured, Music

It’s always a good feeling when Dom Dias hits us up to premiere one of his creations, because we know our ears are in for a treat. Today, the Toronto producer blesses us with a solid remix of “Love$ick”, the breakout single by UK representative Mura Masa. The original, and the single release featuring A$AP Rocky (check the video in our previous post), are melodic affairs, full of piano stabs, flutes, steel drums, and soulful vocal chops. Dom ups the ante on his remix, by focusing on the steel drums, adding in a stuttering bass line, and reworking the record into his signature Caribbean-flavoured style. Think of the original as the jerk chicken, A$AP Rocky’s version as the rice and peas, and Dom’s as the pepper sauce that brings all of the ingredients together. Press play and taste the delicious blend that Dom has cheffed up – you won’t be disappointed. He’s also made the release available as a free download, so grab that while it lasts! Be sure to catch him as he opens for Snakehips this Friday, November 11th, at The Danforth Music Hall (147 Danforth Ave, Toronto). For more information, check out the Facebook event page. He’ll also be playing the Wrong Angle Records Party at Maison Mercer (15 Mercer St, Toronto) on Saturday, November 12th, and you can find more information about that on Facebook as well.

PREMIERE: The Jets – Crush On You (Dom Dias Remix)

Posted by: noble savage on 06/07/2016 in Featured, Music

dom dias the jets crush on you

Another month, another Dom Dias remix… After blessing us with his excellent remix of “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone, the hardest working producer in Toronto returns with a tropical remix to The Jets’ 1986 classic, “Crush On You”. The track, beginning with the sounds of a rain shower, instantly brings to mind a sweltering, humid, and sticky day like those we’ve been having in the city lately. Forty seconds in, the snarl of a tiger leads into a slowed down sample of Elizabeth Wolfgramm’s hook, layered over a hazy instrumental. The funk breakdown near the middle of the track is a reminder that even in the summer heat, there’s always time to get up and dance. Overall, it’s a fun rework of an old-time favourite, and it’s meant to be enjoyed after a few too many mojitos with your l’amour du jour. Kudos to Dom for always bringing something different and enjoyable to the table, and for allowing us to share his creations with the world.
