"AFTERGOLD" +  "AFTERGOLD" FT. TOVE STYRKE Last week Big Wild released his new track titled “Aftergold” via Foreign Family Collective . This is one track that displays how amazing Big Wild’s style and skill really is. He’ll have you dancing with this new one and anticipating for what he has for us in the coming year! Not only did Big Wild release one breathtaking edition of “Aftergold,” but also another version featuring Tove Styrke. Styrke’s voice pushes the electric stomp song to another level of bliss and exhilaration. Couldn’t tell you how much Big Wild is kicking a** with every boundary he pushes with every song he releases. Check out both of Big Wild’s “Aftergold” tracks and give him some love by sharing it with everyone you know! Also, you can catch Big Wild at his tour this Spring!

THE OBSERVATORY: A NIGHT OF ENERGY On March 23, The Observatory in Santa Ana was having one hell of a Wednesday night. Wave Racer, Basenji, and a few friends threw an all ages show that had the whole floor moving. You could say their future classic sets got the kids rowdy, but it was genuine love for the music that had them cheering and dancing for more. But the crowd that night was a mixture of everyone. Being an all ages show, you had all types of music loving goers and ages in the venue, most of which went most crazy over your generic hip-hop and rap songs. But that didn’t stop Wave Racer and his opener Basenji from creating an energetic atmosphere for all.  Being Wave Racer’s, Basenji’s, and also my, first time in the Observatory, the venue was not too small and not too big, but the right size for a crowd to feed off of the artists’ infectious energy. What made me enjoy the show most were the visuals used throughout each one’s set. The pastel and metallic colors in each visu

BAAUER - Aa ALBUM Baauer released his new album, titled, Aa , just today and I am at the least to say ecstatic! After dropping a few singles off Aa, Baauer completed a thirteen song project that has about every element of music style you could want. I feel like he demonstrates the meaning of  having "no genres" when it comes to creating music with this particular album. He uses hip-hop, house, future beats, and much more in Aa . He also collaborates with some of my favorite artists like Leikeli47, TT The Artist, Rustie, and many more! It's a strange yet captivating album that helps define who Baauer is as an artist! Make sure to catch Baauer this year at the many upcoming show and festival dates in the US this year. Check out  Aa on Spotify or iTunes and get a feel for the power of Baauer! -XZX Keep up with Baauer and stream  Aa on: Spotify: Baauer iTunes: Baauer SoundCloud: Baauer Twitter: @baauer


"TWICE" - (LITTLE DRAGON COVER) Josh Jacobson just dropped a new cover yesterday of Little Dragon's "Twice" and I am very in love with it! Little Dragon creates some of my all time favorite music due to their unique style and presentation. Jacobson did this song so much justice that he was able to interpret the song without losing his own signature style. His voice carried a soulful and soothing melody that it maybe, what I think, be better than the original! Take a listen below! -XZX Follow Josh Jacobson on: Twitter: @joshjacobsongs SoundCloud: Josh Jacobson


PLASTICIAN'S "DO WHAT YOU FEEL" (AVIDD REMIX) Avidd can do anything and everything he wants when it comes to creating music. He brought out a different side of his talent with this remix of "Do What You Feel" and honestly its one of the more unique songs that has been put out in a while. A NEST HQ premiere , Avidd's version of Plastician's track has an infectious bump and upbeat twist compared to the passive down tempo original. Take a listen below!! -XZX Follow avidd on: Twitter: @avidd SoundCloud: avidd


TITLED: XCV After a long wait for his new music, Lanz finally dropped his debut album last week for all to enjoy! He features singer, Jems and a few rappers like Joel Debus and Mvtthias throughout the completed work. He starts the album with a slow yet captivating ballad that accentuates the singer, Lexi Olesh's voice. As you get deeper into the album, it is able to showcase Lanz's talent by his own lyrical and production style. I think this album is a great start for Lanz and the final product is a perfect representation of his musical talent. Check out Lanz's album, XCV , below! -XZX Follow Lanz on: Twitter: @Swigglezz Instagram: @lanzxcv Lanz's Music: Spotify: Lanz SoundCloud: lanzxcv iTunes: Lanz
