The Shining - Pantry Scene

The Caretaker was a long-running project by electronic musician James Leyland Kirby, who also records as V/Vm. His work under the Caretaker moniker has been characterised as exploring memory and the gradual deteoriation of it, nostalgia, and melancholia. Initially the project was inspired by the haunted ballroom scene in the 1980 film 'The Shining', with his first several releases consisting of treated and manipulated samples of '30s ballroom pop recordings. His works have received critical acclaim in publications such as 'The Wire' and BBC Music, and the project was a favourite of BBC Radio DJ John Peel. Theoretically pure anterograde amnesia was released in 2005 as a series of 72 free MP3 downloads. The release found much critical acclaim. An Empty Bliss Beyond This World  found further acclaim in 2011. Starting in 2016, a final project titled Everywhere at the End of Time was released in installments, each portion of the release representing a different stage in dementia, until with the final installment in 2019, the “Caretaker” character died and the moniker was retired.

Boris Daenen born 24th March 1989), better known by his stage name Netsky is a Belgian drum and bass producer and musician. The name Netsky is based on the computer virus of the same name. Netsky produces music of the liquid funk style - drum and bass music with many instrumental layers and frequent vocals. High Contrast's 'Gold Digger' remix was a major influence on him. In late 2009, Netsky signed a recording contract with Hospital Records, the same label as other well known liquid artists such as High Contrast and London Elektricity. He also won a nomination as "Best Upcoming Producer" within just months of his first release at the Drum + Bass Arena Awards. Hospital Records released Netsky's self-titled debut album on 31 May 2010. His second album, titled 2, was released on 25 June 2012. The album features three singles and a deluxe edition was later released supported by a fourth single, "We Can Only Live Today (Puppy)". His 2015 single "Rio" featured in the London 2016 New Year's celebrations. In April 2012, during a Hospitality festival at Brixton Academy, Netsky unveiled his "Netsky LIVE!" project for the first time. Accompanied by a team of live musicians, as well as guest vocalists (of whom have sung on Netsky's catalogue of music), Netsky performs his music as a full band, taking center-stage on keyboards and synthesizers. The band now tours the world performing headlining shows around the globe, as well as performing at many international electronic music festivals, such as the Ultra Music Festival in the United States.

 

Lost Frequencies & Netsky - Here With You (Official Video) [Ultra Music]

Here With You

When I saw you for the first time

Days were running by

We were spinning high

I was lost in every message

Collecting all your different pieces

Felt like a secret

When I saw you for the second time

Pain slowly dries, love lost its pride

Be careful as you leave

 

And there's enough of giving and everybody hurts

And there's enough of giving and everybody hurts

And there's enough of giving and everybody hurts

And everybody hurts

 

When I'm here with you

When I'm here with you

 

When I'm here with you, I feel so confused

When I'm here with you, I

Enter the falling, I'm crawling back up

When I'm here with you, I

 

When I'm here with you

When I'm here with you

When I'm here with you

On November 7, 2014, Ookay released his debut EP Ghost via Steve Aoki's label Dim Mak Records. When asked about his inspirations of creating the EP, Ookay said "I really wanted to push the boundaries of my skill. It's kind of a punch in the shoulder to my fans who get mad when I make anything other than trap. So I made an entire EP that's pretty much not trap (except Egg Drop Soup). Really trying to convince everyone that i'm not a one-trick-pony". On October 7, 2016, Ookay released his second extended play titled Cocoon consisting of five songs. Speaking about fellow DJ and friend, Big Makk who died from a car crash in August, Ookay said "I can't believe that it had to be this way and I didn't even get to say goodbye". A tribute event, in which Ookay was a performer, had raised $8,000 in donations with all proceeds going to Big Makk's family.

Dayglow - Nicknames (Official Video)

Here it is, a new confession
You're a rather intelligent adolescent
And that's who you are, I learned my lesson
I must not understand and just must be far too progressive

I never meant to be that way
I just wanted to be kind
Or maybe I just think too much
It's only in my mind this time

Oh I know I'm not everything you thought I was
(Who you say you are is who you're not)
And oh I've tried you cried
I am not all you had thought
(Who you say you are is who you're not)

And I'll do my best my flesh
Is still gonna make mistakes
(Who you say you are is who you're not)
So please forgive if it's really just some big nickname
(Who you say you are is who you're not)

Here it is, a new perspective
I'm listening but in fair warning it's rather subjective
Woah, so unexpected
I know my friends but I'd rather bathe in my self-rejection

I never meant to be that way
But I know I am sometimes
Well maybe I just think too much
You were right, it was only in my mind

And oh I know I'm not everything you thought I was
(Who you say you are is who you're not)
And oh I've tried you cried
I am not all you had thought
(Who you say you are is who you're not)

And I'll do my best my flesh
Is still gonna make mistakes
(Who you say you are is who you're not)
So please forgive if it's really just some big nickname
(Who you say you are is who you're not)

At least I tried
Well at least I tried
At least I tried
Well at least I uh

Sloan Struble, also known as Dayglow, is a self-made artist who is just having fun with his talents. With catchy tracks like “Can I Call You Tonight” and “Hot Rod,” the 19-year-old University of Texas student has amassed over five million Spotify plays and counting. While his sound draws comparison to that of other rising indie pop acts like Wallows, boy pablo, HUNNY, and COIN, Dayglow has managed to distinguish himself clearly in an already crowded genre. A self-taught producer and musician, Dayglow began working with Garageband at age 10 at his childhood home in Aledo, Texas, a small suburb of Fort Worth. Growing up with not much of a music scene to speak of, Dayglow, as an artist, was somewhat raised by the internet, looking to artists like Michael Jackson and Tame Impala for inspiration.

Much like Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, Dayglow prides himself on doing it all: songwriting, producing, performing, and mixing, as well as leading his own creative direction. With Dayglow, everything is a product of his singular imagination, creating a style that is distinct and undeniably sincere. While Dayglow attributes some of his streaming success to “getting lucky” with Spotify algorithms, his achievements are really anything but. His songs have an exceptional sense of optimism and a feel-good freedom rarely seen in pop today. While many rising acts are releasing a darker, melancholic pop, Dayglow’s music acts as an antidote. His debut album, Fuzzybrain, reveals an artist coming of age. His work is both relatable and irresistible, leading him to seemingly overnight success. In less than a year, he started college, released his debut album, played at SXSW, and opened for JOAN, The Band CAMINO and Misterwives. For Dayglow, it seems, this is only the beginning.




 

Dayglow - Hot Rod (Official Video)

"Hot Rod"

Sloan, let's sing a song, what should we sing?

My memory is not like the other one
Turn to strike my face
Always second place
Tell me again why is it I
Never can do anything right?
Complicated theories of life, sarcastically

But we both know
The way it's gonna go
In the same way
Maybe I'm not all that you thought
And we don't move
Like we used to do
In the same way
Maybe you're not such a hot rod

Take back again all that I ever was
It was only just a face
I never thought of it that way
But what do I know
I'm sorry for
Not wanting to be your décor
Truth is such a violent force, pushing you away

But we both know
The way it's gonna go
In the same way
Maybe I'm not all that you thought
And we don't move
Like we used to do
In the same way
Maybe you're not such a hot rod

Oh we both know
The way it's gonna go
In the same way
Maybe I'm not all that you thought
And we don't move
Like we used to do
In the same way
Maybe you're not such a hot rod

Virtual Self - Key (Official Music Video)

Virtual Self is the debut extended play (EP) by American electronic music producer Porter Robinson under the alias Virtual Self. The EP was released on November 29, 2017, as the first release on the eponymous record label Virtual Self. Virtual Self is a departure from the sounds of Robinson's debut album 'Worlds', in favor of a more techno sound inspired by late 90s-early 2000s dance music. Virtual Self's first live performance debuted on December 8th, 2017 in Brooklyn, New York. The show consisted of an elaborate light show and in tandem with Robinson playing a DJ set. The set included songs from the game Dance Dance Revolution as well as unreleased Virtual Self music and songs from the EP. Porter Robinson has been plotting the Virtual Self project since 2015.
Philip Sherburne from Pitchfork granted Virtual Self a 5.9/10 and describes the EP as an effort to "make a headlong plunge into an aesthetic rooted in the late 1990s and early 2000s" whose rhythms are "funkless" and "hyperactive", reminiscent of Dance Dance Revolution soundtracks. The critic then pegged "Ghost Voices" as the most contemporary sounding track of the EP and concluded by stating that "Virtual Self hones in on the most garish aspects of Robinson's influences, burning away any possibility of subtlety beneath a billion-watt gleam". Kat Bein of Billboard was positive of the EP, dubbing his alias as "high-concept musical nerdiness with a heavy Final Fantasy vibe" and that the whole record "plays like a killer soundtrack to the best mid-2000s RPG Nintendo forgot to release". DJ Times magazine's Brian Bonavoglia wrote that although the EP's sound was a large change of pace compared to his preceding Worlds album, Virtual Self still maintained all aspects of Robinson's "production brilliance". In the United States, Virtual Self sold 1,000 copies in its first week of release.
