[The Audiofiles] Friday Finds

Standard

Finally, it’s FRIDAY; hands down, one of my top five favorite F-words – quite possibly even in my top three. As the weather solemnly shifts from a hot, dry Summer to a delightfully crisp, slightly less warm Fall in Los Angeles – I’ve been more willing to toss on my neon running shoes and hit the pavement in the morning.  In fact, in an unprecedented move – I’ve managed to get my booty out the door 5 of the last 7 days! Not to say that I run the entire 3-4 miles – I skip a bit, definitely do a few mini tribals when the music is too good and I’ve been known to take a walk and or stretch break every now and again.  But, I’ve also gotten in a 9 minute mile and 3 miles in under 30 minutes – so, I don’t hesitate to call that a success.

My favorite part of my morning runs is plugging into some new music and letting the basslines ripple down my spine like an electric current is bringing me to life.  To say that music is my life is an absolute understatement;  I eat, sleep, breathe, run, laugh and cry in tonalities, seductive synths and delicately layered harmonies.  I dabble in all genres of music, and though I’ve found myself deep in the rabbit hole of EDM – I’ve found that my favorite producers and DJs of late truly incorporate and fuse live instrumentation and vocals for more than your traditional experience; and of the ones that deliver the untz and whompage that’s typically associated with the genre – they do it right, with complex layers and heavy basslines that leave you craving more.

This week’s discoveries include the latest from Dillon Francis a delicious Electro House collaboration with Martin Garrix that’ll make you forget he ever produced Animals, a few tracks from UK duo Gorgon City with some of my favorite female vocalists (Katy B and Jennifer Hudson),  PhaseOne’s remix of Xilent‘s Symphony, SLOWOLF’s  phenomenal remix of a  _MØ_ track that I can’t find an original for and last, but certainly not least, a deliriously haunting and equally beautiful track from up and coming star Sweater Beats. Rave it up, rock it out and have a wonderful weekend!

About missamandapearl

♥ I'm a spunky girl with a big heart and an open mind. I can't ride a bike and dislike capital letters. I'm slightly obsessed with my kitties - Daisy, Stella, Loki and Marley - but I bet if they were yours you would be, too. I laugh all the time - loudly and mostly at myself. my favorite things include, but aren't limited to: fabulous people, my fantastic husband-to-be, traveling, live music, social media, a good read, working out, furry friends, the Golden State Warriors, photography, and sushi. Everyone, including you, looks like an animal - and I won't hesitate to tell you which one. I was born and raised in the 650, spent some of the best years of my life at UCSB as a gaucho and am now a proud angelino; its taken some time, but I effing love└A.
