VFD Media July Playlist: What We Are Listening to this Month
July 8, 2013
With the Fourth of July celebrations behind us, summer is in full swing at the VFD Marketing office in Miami Beach. With music being an important part of our company's DNA, here's a sampling of what's being played in the office this month:
3LAU, Paris & Simo feat. Bright Lights - Escape: Always a crowd favorite known for his live energy, mashups, and technical skills, Las Vegas-based artist Justin Blau, better known as 3LAU, released his first original recording with the single "Escape". Featuring Paris & Simo, as well as Bright Lights, "Escape" is a high energy single that looks to be on the tracklist of top DJ's must-play set list. An Electro Beach Puerto Vallarta veteran, 3LAU looks to follow in the footsteps of other headliners such as Alesso and Nicky Romero, as a young talent who can produce and perform.
The 1975 - Me: Ever since someone referred me to UK band The 1975 last month, I have been playing their latest EP non-stop. One of my favorite tracks from the EP is "Me". It gives you Indie/Chillwave vibes with a vocal in a heavy Manchester accent. Not to mention, everyone loves a really good, depressing track.
Cayucas - High School Lover: This song features a pretty funky bass line as well as a very catchy chorus, what more could you ask for from a song. Also, I have Shazamed it twice in the past month to remind me to download it.
Amsterdamese crew Yellow Claw has long-established itself as one of the biggest EDM names in Europe. YC’s mix for Diplo & Friends on BBC Radio 1 is an impressive exhibit of music that sells out clubs and arenas wherever they go. This mix has definitely earned his place in the Hall of Fame of Diplo & Friends – a show that already hosted artists like Flux Pavilion, Avicii and Zeds Dead.
Rage Against The Machine - Maggie's Farm: When you take the a near perfectly written song from a musical icon (Bob Dylan) and give one of the most influential hard rock bands of our time (Rage Against The Machine) the ability to put their creative stamp on it, The Maggie's Farm is what you get. Rage's cover of Dylan's Maggie's Farm is an emotional masterpiece that should be heard by any fan of hard rock.
