Party Favor Revisits His Many Facets in New Remix Album of “Layers”

One way you can measure your album’s success is if the market wants another dose and calls for a remix album. Starting off the journey we are stopping by Area 25 for a brand new remixed version of Party Favor’s Layers album released back in April. When you have the chance to work with someone like Party Favor, that is definitely not an opportunity that you turn down. With an impressive resume as a genre-bending artist and producer, Party Favor has seen plenty of glory with his multitude of original tracks such as “MDR” and “Give It To Me Twice”. Party Favor has even accomplished quite a bit as a producer for major artists like Lil Jon and ASAP Ferg, with all of his work earning him an impressive 135 million streams on Spotify.

“Before I finished the ‘Layers‘ album, I knew that I wanted to put together a remix pack for it. I’m so happy how they all turned out. So many talented people got to be a part of this, and I’m very grateful. All genres, all vibes and everything in between. Everyone did their thing. Smashes all around.” – Party Favor

While Party Favor is still hardcore riding that sweet wave of success that Layers brought along, he still wanted to pop in with extra DLC. Plenty of talent exists among this tracklisting, including remixes from Duke & Jones, Wuki, Blanke, J. Worra, BiJOU, YehMeh2, Dabow, and TroyBoi. While each mix finds plenty of shared influence among the bass music and house subgenres, each artist makes their slice of the album unique and distinct. While we may be biased, TroyBoi’s more hip-hop influenced remix of “Wait A Minute”, sells this entire remix album for us. Through Layers Party Favor was able to explore the many different facets of his music career and we can’t wait for the next project to fall into our laps.

Ambient Instrumentalist FerrariLover Teases New Soundscape With Single “Endless Seconds”

While trends and genres ebb and flow in the popular scene, but the solo instrumental guitarist is a definite mainstay. finishing off our journey we have the brand new single “Endless Seconds” from guitarist Nica Wyland. Better known as FerrariLover, Wyland is an amazing multi-instrumentalist that has been busy exploring the finer recesses of modern ambient guitar work through more in-depth compositions. Originally a San Diego native, Wyland has traveled all over the world in order to expand her mind and sound through inspirations from French, Italian, and Eastern cultures. Wyland has always been a child of music, easily being lost in the world of MTV during the 1980s.

While her debut album was mainly improvisational and recorded in only a single take, Wyland has taken much more time with each composition. This time around both her mind and studio have expanded, allowing Wyland more time to dwell and explore the ambient soundscape. Wyland’s style is one of “savoir-faire”, idyllic of surrealist images in the artist’s mind, much like the idea behind new wave cinema.

If you have have been following us for some time now, you know that we are absolutely in love with ambient and surreal sounds. Wyland’s guitar work teeters on the edge of the avant-garde, quietly haunting us while at the same time entrancing us with its pure beauty. With this skill level, we need FerrariLover scoring the biggest science fiction blockbusters of the year as we are encapsulated by this cosmic essence. Since “Endless Seconds” is just the latest single from FerrariLover’s new album Exotic Legend, we have successfully been teased and bitten down hard on the bait. We can’t wait to hear the rest of FerrariLover’s atmospheric adventure.

Make sure you check out the music video for “Endless Seconds” on YouTube or just the audio over on SoundCloud and BandCamp!

Half An Orange Teases New “Mostly We Grow Pt 2” EP With the Emotive “Sunscreen”

While our summertime fun may be waning down and eyeing a route out the door, we need to make do with all we have left. Taking a beat out from our overly hectic weekday schedule we are bouncing over to Monstercat for “Sunscreen” a brand new single off of the upcoming Mostly We Grow Pt 2 EP from Half an Orange. Founded by artists Andrew Spellman and Michael Maloof, the name for the project came from a Portuguese saying Maloof learned while living on the beach for over a year. Everyone is only half of something, constantly lost but looking for their other half whether it be a person, thing, or purpose. These electric astronauts have started to gain plenty of traction after their initial Mostly We Grow EP, as well as through their unique music videos. Each one of the music videos is written, edited, and animated by Half an Orange, who has reaped in a number of new media awards for their work.

Our summer may be already progressing into a very hot Autumn, tracks like this are determined to keep the sunshine fun while it lasts. “Sunscreen” is a solid example of Half an Orange’s hybrid style and message of wandering lost while looking for your other half. While Half an Orange’s fusion of the electronic and instrumental genres is soft, calming, and soothing, it wouldn’t have the same impact without their raw vocals, Half an Orange expands on their style with emotive vocals that elevate their overall sound by 125%. We can’t wait to hear the rest of Mostly We Grow Pt 2 EP and make sure you check out their music videos here.

Make sure you check out “Sunscreen” on Spotify!
