We had the pleasure to attend one of the exclusive Coachella festivities that took place during the first weekend in Palm Springs. Hard Rock Music Lounge was among the weekend’s top contenders rolling out the red carpet for their VIP guests who were catered to plenty of pool side entertainment provided by artists such as Kelly Rowland, Tamara Sky and a DJ set by members of The Strokes. To top off the weekend, Fool’s Gold came out in full force on Sunday with its’ Sunset Pool Party with A-trak on the decks alongside Nick Catchdubs, Thee Mike B, and Martin Vidal. The event was held at Hotel Zoso which is the future home to Hard Rock Palm Springs. The energy was high and the music was booming from noon to sunset. [Read more...]
Oliver’s Mechanical EP, released today by Fool’s Gold Records, is a welcome surprise; the EP showcases the duo’s skill with energetic, funky house as well as slower, soulful grooves. “MYB” and “Control” draw quite a bit from the French scene – reminding listeners of Justice and Daft Punk with exaggerated synths, cheerful vocals, and heavy, funk-drenched beats. Meanwhile, “Night Is On My Mind” slows things down with late-night deep house sounds, and “Mechanical” brings in some blissful, synthpop-inspired electronica with layers of beautiful melodies. Oliver has definitely caught our eye with this very well-done, adventurous EP and we’re hoping that the duo keeps the material coming. Check out the tracks below and grab the full release from Beatport!
