Here’s throwback track to get you in that summer vibe.

Flowering Inferno – Death Of A Revolution

Caroline Rose

Caroline Rose

LONER is the second album release from singer-songwriter Caroline Rose. I’ve selected a few of my favorite tracks from the album below but my favorite favorite single is called “Jeanie Becomes A Mom.” The whole track was recorded on a backpack-sized synth called the OP-1.

“It was loosely inspired by a friend who accidentally got pregnant,” says Rose when describing the track. “I took a lot of creative liberty with it and blended a lot of things I was feeling in my own life. Every so often I’ll have bouts of pretty bad anxiety, where it feels like I’m running out of time.”

Don’t we all feel that way from time to time?

Check LONER out on Spotify now.

The Blue Iguana


Tim Vickers (aka GrandBankss) was born on a gloomy island off the east coast of Canada (hence his pseudonym). He moved to San Francisco at a fairly young age and began studying music. After 10 years of working independently, he began producing professionally. He’s helped produce many of the emerging artists in the Bay Area such as MVCK, Elujay, Ace Diego, Odie, DerekTed as well as writing his own Experimental Electronic and Bossa Nova tracks.

Here we are featuring the first single called “The Blue Iguana” which is off of his 5-track EP entitled Slo-Pitch.

Hold On – Loud Forest


Bernard and Rachel Chadwick are the LA-based duo behind Loud Forest. Their new single, “Hold On” speaks about the place where you find yourself in a situation that turns out to be heavier than you expected. How do you respond to the pressure? It’s a song that is meant to be an encouragement to someone who is in that position of panic. The song is about keeping your cool. Hold on tight, you’ll make it alive.

Throwback Thursday: Kinobe


Nine years ago we were given one of the most quintessential chill out tunes of all time. It is called “Slip into Something More Comfortable” and it was created by the British electronic duo, Julius Waters and Chuck Norman (aka Kinobe). The track is cinematic, it’s sweeping and it’s unequivocally CHILL! So I thought with Summer quickly approaching in the northern hemisphere, it would be great idea to bring back this chill out anthem. Get involved!
