REMINISCING OVER 2015  2015 has brought some incredible music to my ears. Not saying it did not bring some of the worst music to my ears, but 2015 was the year where my knowledge about music has expanded the most. From starting this blog to figuring out what the hell a synthesis is, in 2015 I have discovered great gems that were either from years before or that were recently released in 2015. In all honesty, if it were not for Twitter, Souncloud, and Anna Lunoe’s Beats 1 radio show, I would not know the amazing artists I know now. So to sum up, in one hour, what stood out to me in 2015, in terms of music, here is my 2015 recap mix! I hope you enjoy and crank these bada** tracks up for a hell of a time!! - XZX                                                       My Soundcloud: XZXsound TRACK LIST: 1.        Cashmere Cat - “Kiss Kiss” (Lido Remix) 2.        AObeats, Jai Wolf, and Manila Killa - “Diamonds for Breakfast” (ft.

YOUTUBER: RACHEL COBB With her quirky youthful style and a fresh sense on making her perspective showcased through internet videos, Rachel Cobb, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, brings a new game to the  YouTube  scene. She inspires others with her words but more  directly  with her sense of style. She wears what she wants, when she wants, and how she wants. She uses the “no boundaries” method when it comes to wearing the clothes you want through her outfit ensembles she composes together. I would say she makes causal risks. In a sense, where she experiments with an outfit that can be worn any day of the week by mixing colors (mostly primary), patterns, and shapes or silhouettes. From the refreshing beat music she uses in her  YouTube  videos to the unique background settings, Rachel utilizes her creativity to bring the best for her audience, making no video boring or dull. One of my favorite aspects of Rachel's style, in general, is the combination of the old school and new


SHOW DATE: DECEMBER 13, 2015 Odesza knows how to deliver a show. One hell of a show put it that way. The first time I heard Odesza's music, it was hard for me to describe it. There were symphonies of tropical echoes and airy twinkle sounds that make your brain buzz with joy. Just like their music, their show was indescribable at the Shrine in Los Angeles.  All you can do is be there and watch the magic they put on stage.  Selling out all three dates, Odesza had a busy filled venue to attack! One thing I found notable about their concert was that it did not even feel like a concert. They created an ambiance where you feed off of the crowd’s spirited vibes whilst being surrounded by faithful beats and melodies. From the visual effects to a delivery of an entire band being brought out, the whole show produced a force of high energy. If you get a chance to see Odesza at their remaining shows for 2015, I suggest you do! All I know is that I will be reminiscing over the happy memories

FOREIGN FLAVORS Inspired by the artists that aren't afraid to navigate their own style with foreign beats, this podcast has tracks that I believe are quite a well rounded representation of worldwide music. With familiar beats and sounds, you might find yourself listening to something you wish you should have discovered a long time ago. With that said I hope you enjoy Podcast #3!! -XZX Soundcloud: XZXsound
