Very excited for this show on Saturday (1/16) at the 9:30 Club. This is a fantastic ensemble of groups doing cool things in pop music. The Knocks are reaching new heights with their last two collaborations, which include working with Camron. Sofi Tukker is tapping into an interesting vein of dance/house music with a pop twist. And though I have never seen them live, Cadriknox and their synth pop sensabilites are poised to give a fantastic show. See you there…
Thanks for the support!
Keep cozy with an hour of Baio. The “Cold Winter, Warm Beats” playlist includes a few of his own tunes along with wavy sounds and remixes you’ve likely never heard. Happy Wednesday.

Cardiknox’s new single “Doors” is filled with a very positive message. It makes not giving up look cool even when the chips are down. This song is for those of us who may be having a bad day, week, month or year. The simplicity of the lyrics aligned with the melodic beat makes Doors unforgettable. Daye Jack gives the song a nice reboot with a special remix of the track featuring the Georgia rapper. Currently on tour — Cardiknox is also gearing up to release their debut album in 2016 and with a successful hit single I’m sure plenty more Doors will open…

Sometimes when you’re right, you’re right. Catz n’ Dogz makes all the appropriate dance edits on this remix of the RÜFÜS / RÜFÜS DU SOL ‘s track “You Were Right.” The buzzy bass line, four-to-the-floor drum kit, and housey hi-hat syncopation is the perfect transition from headphones to dance floor. Get right below.
ND is back from hibernation with a P-H phat remix by my personal favorite artist out of the PNW, Manatee Commune. He takes the funky, soulful track “Sensation” by RAEZ feat. Sarsha Simone, and spins it into this beautifully textured, spacey dance jam. And did you happen to catch his music video submission for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Contest? So damn good.
Scope this remix by Blue Hawaii for “Fall” off Night Safari, the most recent album from Populous. Night Safari is out now on Bad Panda Records/Folk Wisdom.
