Dig IN! ^_^
This week’s Weeklies (aptly entitled Skull and The Hot Mess) is a menagerie or mixed tunes both old and new from my favorite artists. A sweet tune from The Real Tuesday Weld to open the set followed by the riotous new track from Kanye West. Monster may put you off at first but give it another try, it may get you later. The Rapture continuous the rising action of this set followed by synths and keyboards of a Swedish House Mafia and Miike Snow mashup. You guys have to get the Silvia To Ibiza, it’s perf. Then my chillwave fave from Toro Y Moi. There are more tracks to discover and enjoy off this set so hang in there, and enjoy!
To get to the bottom of this Weeklies’ title, I’ll show you this:
If you don’t know what this is, then you better check out Skullcandy‘s new feature in their website. Witness… The Virtual Room. Before you shrug this off, this augmented reality lets you virtually try on their Aviator Headphones. Pretty cool huh? Jay-Z and Rita Ora are reportedly fans of their Roc Nation Aviator series so you better give them a shot! If its not your kind of thing, you can get something else fit for the rebel/dj/partyphile in you. Here’s a shout out to a few of my buddies up in Stance, who makes your argyle socks look like a thing of the past.

TORO Y MOI – ah, even the artist’s name conjures up pleasant memories of the beach. Or anything vaguely relaxing. Toro Y Moi is the stage name used by recording artist Chazwick Bundick. His music has taken a few twists and turns but now, he is currently identified as the chillwave movement of the summer. His use of layers of synthesizers to create an atmosphere of electronic sounds is the main culprit for the hazy and warm vibe of his music. Plus his breathy, soft voice and danceable sound makes for a perfect summer day. What’s not to love?
