TILT Spotlight: Elizabeth Rose

Having been dubbed "Next Big Thing" at the SMAC Radio Awards and seeing her self-titled EP reach #1 on iTunes' Electronic Chart in her native Australia, Elizabeth Rose is setting out to spread her music to the rest of the world and today she announced a North American and European tour. Kicking off April 28th right here in Los Angeles at School Night, Elizabeth's 11-date tour includes shows in New York, Toronto, London & Berlin.

Elizabeth Rose is known to have an impressive list of collaborations, including tracks with UK producer Sinden and breakthrough duo Flight Facilities. She produces electronic pop songs that are at once bright and moody, layering catchy melodies against shimmering synths and pulsing beats. 

After sharing the official video for her hit single "Sensibility" back in February, Elizabeth Rose reveals the TOKiMONSTA remix today. TOKi's remix gives the song a lo-fi bass flavor that still showcases Elizabeth's gorgeous vocals. Check that and the video below if you missed it.

DON'T MISS: Beyonce - Drunk In Love (Danger Ultra Remix)

Alright, alright. I know you're probably thinking, "God... Not another 'Drunk In Love' remix". Well, hold your ass up just one minute. You've definitely heard all the major takes from The Weeknd, Diplo and Kanye...but there's a few more-underground ones that you simply should not miss. Take this one from Danger Ultra who resides right here in Los Angeles. The remix is totally different that anything you've heard yet, I can guarantee it. Danger incorporates a fantastic grand piano and slowed-down feel to the monster hit. He definitely did his thing with this one. Turn it up below and let us know what you think!

DR. FRESCH - You're My Obsession (ft. Nate Dogg & Animotion)


Dr. Fresch, Los Angeles based DJ/Producer creates a fun mashup of  Obsession and Nate Dogg and Animotion.  If you dig Justice, you will dig this fun mashup.  It is super creative and bassy as hell.   A really groovin tune and Dr. Fresch definitely did not overdo the track because it simply is delicious.  Bringin back old school vibes and mashing them with the sound of today. It's always a good day when Nate Dogg is blastin on your speakers. Press play and make sure you get your free download.

Blondie - Rapture (LUXXURY EDIT)

What can we say? Luxxury does it again with his massive new edit of Rapture by Blondie.  Luxxury has proven himself to be one of L.A.’s top-notch disco producers.  He remixes tastefully, nice and subtle changes.  Luxxury is somewhat of a chef when it comes to editing music.  This remix is so awesome, only released 12 hours ago and has already has been played numerous times.  He knows exactly what songs to tackle and he tackles them well.  Luxxury is sure a producer that you need to keep up with.  Follow him on soundcloud to get his latest tracks as he releases them on free download.  Enjoy this amazing track!

DON'T MISS: Diego Delgado - Vintage Articles of Loathing

Diego Delgado is a Sacramento rapper who sort of came out of nowhere with this 'Vintage Articles of Loathing' 2-track remix EP... As followers of TILT may know, I'm a huge fan of anything that's alternative in the sense that "this has never been done". Well, I'd consider it pretty alternative for an upcoming rapper to take the route Diego Delgado has, enlisting two fairly well-known producers to remix a couple of his tracks and just putting that out on its own. Fuck yeah. Why not?

On 'Vintage Articles of Loathing', we get two remixes from the likes of Los Angeles's own TOKiMONSTA... well as CocoRosie all the way from France... 

So fucking rad to hear an indie hip-hop release like this that's so directly in touch with these kinds of worldly producers, not to mention they're all ladies. Well fucking done, Diego...

Enjoy the release below!

TILT Spotlight: Bobby Nourmand

Bobby Nourmand is only a newcomer in the sense of his productions. Dude has been DJing for the likes of Jay Z and Beyoncé and Robert DeNiro and Kanye West in New York for a hot minute now. Not even trying to hype him up. Mr. Nourmand really is that DJ that gets gigs like the Tribeca Film Festival Awards Party.

So yeah, we know he can throw down an awesome set, which makes it even cooler to introduce his tracks. Of all ways to go, Bobby Nourmand has chosen the route of deep house with his creations. And it's damn good. He's got three tracks up on his SoundCloud, two of which are free to take home with you. Peruse all three below, and be sure to follow our man on Twitter for updates.

James Dean Claitor - Open Book

Back in November we shared James Dean Claitor's "Invisible Man" which blew our minds with its funky instrumentation. Well, whether or not you remember that and enjoyed it, you're going to fall in love with his new one, "Open Book".

He says, "I wrote 'Open Book' one night long ago when the refrain 'I'm letting you know' kept running over and over in my mind. The whole song came out in an hour, both music and lyrics. I was in college at the time, so my buddy Phil D'Agostino transcribed the song on piano the next day, and we recorded it with Gene Garfin (backup singer for Andrew Gold) on vocals and Crista (from The Commodores) on keys. David Todt hand delivered the cassette tape to Jobete/Motown in Los Angeles. They liked it and suggested a polish. Well, I just took my time. Finally, a few months ago, I sent Paul Fauerso a copy of the original recording, and he said: 'I like it! So, how about a neo soul pop version -- like Mayer Hawthorne?' And there you have it: after literally 30 years, we have a great version of the song, 'Open Book'."

Enjoy the not-so-new new one from James Dean Claitor below.

Kill Paris - I Love You Lana Del Rey (Amika Akaya Remix)

Hands-down one of the most underrated producers in the game right now is Los Angeles' very own Amika Akaya who's literally had his head in his sound, just pumping out hit tune after tune. Really though, when I heard his most recent remix of Kill Paris' "I Love You Lana Del Rey", my first thought was not only "damn this shit slaps" but also "wow, this is really clean, crispy and pro". The man certainly has our attention and we're happy to be following him. Check out that Kill Paris mix I mentioned below and scope an original tune called "Killing Season" further down.

Supporting MNDR is San Diego's own funk house duo - Geisha Twins. The two gained notoriety after having their track featured on Treasure Fingers' own show and appearing alongside Thee Mike B on Scion AV's radio show. Also on the bill are Los Angeles favorites - Tropicool and TouchTone.

[Stream] Night Drive - Position I EP // Los Angeles Show with Tesla Boy

Night Drive - born out the collective disbandment of MoTel Aviv and Glasnost - is a two part band on a mission to change electro-pop as we know it. Position I is the group's first EP and includes five original tracks packed with shimmering retro synths and vocals laden with love and fantasy. Stream the full EP below.

The tracks - 'Nocturnal' especially - have a sound reminiscent of The Faint with the same contradictory upbeat tempos that belie the lyrics' darker tendencies. They are ready-made for either a night drive or evening of twisted dance floor debauchery. 'After Dark' opens with a thick bass guitar intro that fit perfectly alongside crooning lyrics of desire and submission. All in all, a stunning EP that should not be overlooked by anyone who considers themselves a true electro-pop audiophile.

Head to the Night Drive Bandcamp to grab a copy of the EP at a pay-what-you-can price and be sure to catch the group performing alongside Tesla Boy this Saturday at Los Globos in Los Angeles.

Muevelo ft. Swizzymack x Review

Muevelo has become a recent Los Angeles staple. Showcasing the best in new urban sounds and fostering a music scene, which features Moombahton, Trap, Philly Club, and other styles. Such a good party in LA, that it has garnered much attention from many people. Always featuring some upcoming or established name such as Munchi, Nadastrom, Swizzymack, Dj Blass, and many more. You can never go wrong when attending a Muevelo party.

Drunk Girl feeling the vibes and going ham and cheese for Swizzymack.

I recently attended the latest Muevelo ft. Swizzymack and wow! It was an amazing experience with lots of people dancing and feeling the music. Different sounds and an eclectic group of people made the night a blast. Swizzymack had a nearly perfect set, with one hiccup when the laptop fell and died. He was a good sport about it and quickly started to get things poppin again. Playing a heavy bass set. It was definitely a worthwhile set to catch and dance too.

If there was anything that i learned from this party. It's that Philly, Jersey, and Bmore Club are making a  push that will contend with the recent popularity of Trap. Los Angeles loved Philly Club, and once you get approval here, your going to be successful anywhere else.

Check out their next party [HERE]

Featured Artist - Djemba Djemba

After searching the universe for that next level sound, we have been pleasantly surprised and blessed by discovering this amazing artist from our own backyard! Djemba Djemba brings our planet huge bass and an has proved himself as the MAN who will guide our next gen of music lovers to what the greatness of bass music really can be. A fusion of DnB, UK Garage, NYC House, Trap and Dub mashed with finely tuned, chopped up vocals that have been twisted and transitioned in to his tunes with grace. Following the footsteps of LOL Boys, Star Slinger, Bwanna, Four Tet, and Para-One I definitely see this producer making some HUGE moves. Every tune he does is pure GOLD! Insta-Classics! TRUST!

The first tune of his that grabbed us is his release on Mad Decent! Check this one out!

Press Release:
Djemba Djemba is music born from a state of permanent contradiction, held together by one underlying and adaptive principle: rhythm. Experimenting with polyrhythms, 90's FM synths, and the all-important 808 Kick, Djemba Djemba crafts a sound that is both intelligent as it is brain numbing.
It's easy to detect the influence of UK Bass music currently dominating clubs, yet at the same time feel altogether new, and in stride with the response taking place in New York, Chicago, Boston, and his home in Los Angeles.
With releases on Mad Decent, his own imprint Rabbit Records, and Beat Team Supreme, Djemba's music has been supported by the likes of Diplo, The Gaslamp Killer, Rusko, Baauer, Obey City, Major Lazer, Paul Devro, and BBC Radio 1. With exciting collaborations in the works with some of the biggest names in EDM, and his finger on the pulse of the latest dance music via his co-club night The Melt, Djemba Djemba certainly has a few surprises on the horizon.

His remix of "Oh Sheila" straight up floored me! With the down tuned vocals teamed up with Djemba Djemba's beats, it makes this tune that next level shit you have all been waiting for! With tunes like this you can't deny that this is THE NEXT LEVEL!

Now if your still not convinced check out this Fiona Apple REMIX! I'm not even a Fiona Apple fan and Djemba Djemba somehow got me reeled in with his remix! This is one artist that rep's L.A. to the fullest and def one to keep an eye on! We fully support him and give him our seal of approval! Now add Djemba Djamba on Facebook and be sure to support! See you at the show!

Now if you feel like you need even more, don't worry, we at TILTmag have you covered. Check out the latest mixtape from Djemba Djemba and download it for your morning commute. You will def get a solid dose!

Neo Fresco Debut EP

Neo Fresco formerly known as The Kid has just released his self titled EP debut. The EP is massive and has Neo Fresco's take on Trap and Techno. Really combining both elements to create some next level tunes. So lets check out the tunage!

One of my favorite tunes off the new EP. We hear sounds that remind you of videogames and then it drops to a Trap style beat with playful synth sounds and properly placed call and response vocals. Overall the song is a solid production that gives you the vibe of your favorite Nintendo Track getting trapped out.

This Next track is a Techno Vibe type of tune. Amazing synths that pop in and out to make this song amazing, and an awesome bass synth just so delicately placed. Perfect for the club or as your crusing in your car and want to feel like a badass. This track has you feeling like your Ryan Gosling in "DRIVE" and speeding away from cops.

Here's the Neo Fresco take on the Boys Noize and Erol Alkan- Death Suite. Yes, trapped out and made ten times harder. This remix brings a fresh unique take on the original. Enlisting the support of Korova, they smashed this track. I personally enjoy the synths the most and the fresh Beat all add to it being a great Remix.

If your in the Los Angeles area and want to catch Neo Freso live! then Sept. 20th is your lucky day! More info click Here

Echo Park – Fibreoptic (12th Planet & Flinch Remix)

Here at TILTmag we have always supported the extended L.A. fam 12th Planet & Flinch. Every track this duo touches is an instant hit to us. Track for track, remix for remix, no one in the Dubstep scene can even touch these two! The latest track they teamed up on is a track from the Indie group Echo Park. The band is pretty good but with these to dubstep kings working the track, it takes on a whole new feel, all while keeping the original vocals and melodies intact. This is all about how Dubstep can take on more then just a dark vibe, but one that has its ear to the street. It doesn't matter if your a skate kid, a hipster, a B-Boy, or a stripper. If your from the street you can all relate. Big tune! Run IT.....

Echo Park – Fibreoptic (12th Planet & Flinch Remix)

BTW! Can we get a 12th Planet // Flinch // Zeds Dead collabo SOON PLEASE!
