♬ Coldplay – Midnight
★ Coldplay – Midnight (Urban Contact Remix)

I will never forget the first music video I saw on MTV. I was standing in our family room, ready to give up on whatever was on, ’til the soft strokes of “The Scientist” suddenly rang forth persistently from the set. Chris Martin had appeared, walking in reverse, traversing the stage of some faraway land, and my love for Coldplay became solidified in those four-odd minutes.

It has yet to abate, especially with this latest, a Bon Hiver-esque, smoky nighttime song released as a preview for their May album. I waited out the first week in hopes of a masterful rework to spring up, and it is Urban Contact I found success: an Adrian Lux type synth and sharp snare beat. Killin’ it.

One of the best things about living in San Francisco are the frequent performances from Dirtybirders. Justin Martin and Nick Monaco threw an epic dance party to a basement packed with diehard fans at Monarch this past weekend.  Martin’s music flawlessly combines melody while still maintaining that filthy deep house sound.  It’s the small nuances that he adds to his tracks, like birds chirping, that make his sound unfailingly out of the ordinary. Some of my favorite tunes from the night were as follows:

★ Ultraista – Small Talk (Four Tet Remix) (Justin Martin
Rework)
♬ Rachel Row – Follow the Step (Justin Martin Remix)
♬ Mike Monday – Grace (Justin Martin Remix)


don’t care if it’s real or Faker

★ Chet Faker – Talk Is Cheap

I’m honestly stunned to not have posted this sooner. Australian crooner Chet Faker really digs deep with this first single of his debut album, Built On Glass, due out mid-April — not to mention this zen video! If you’re on the East Coast like me, this is perfect in time for the coldest Hump Day of the year…….BRRRRR!

★ Above & Beyond – Miracle

My absolute favorite off the new Above & Beyond Acoustic album is “Miracle”. Its delicate beauty truly shows off the talents of Tony (playing guitar), Paavo (cello), and Jono (vibraphone) and their newly-adapted album in a remarkable way. Couldn’t sleep without sharing.

Sync Deep

Recently fallen hard for these deep house tracks, both remixes and originals. Perfect for cold, moody, weekday commutes, these beats deliver soothing relief from crying babies, flat tires, and the rest of life’s occasional crap.
