KC’s Music Monday: Airplane Mode Edition

I’m jetting off (literally) to Croatia later today, but I’ve got to take three planes and one bus to get to where I’m going. Which is rather gross and perhaps a bit crazy. Needless to say, I’m going to be spending quite a bit of time in headphones.

I’m heading out to attend Dimensions Festival. The fest is put on by the people behind Outlook, which is a four-day music festival that takes place in an abandoned fort in Pula, Croatia. Outlook has existed in its current form since 2008 and this year is the premiere of its sister festival, taking place at the same location a weekend following. You can check out details of the fest and the massive line-up here.

For your listening pleasure (and perhaps for my maintaining my sanity) I’ve compiled a collection of must-have mixes for time spent in transit.

Hit the jump! Maybe it’ll even come in handy for soundtracking any travels you do for the long weekend.

OTS x OP1 x WCDB Interview: Jillionaire

The next round of monthly parties on the sly and OUTPOST1 (with support from WCDB) are nearing closer – current countdown reads at 10 and 11 days respectively – and the following interview was just too good to keep starred in my priority inbox any longer. This month’s headliner, Jillionaire, is hilarious (and of course, talented) and I can’t wait for us to host him in Albany on May 18th at Jillian’s, alongside Mix Pak’s Dre Skull and residents Party With Tina, Knomad and Looney.

Additionally, be sure to hit us with an e-mail at RSVP@KeepAlbanyBoring.com so we can add your name to the list for the RSVP-only Happy Hour to get the early advantage on our inexpensive-but-not-cheap drink specials. Happy Hour runs an hour prior to when we open the doors to the public too, so come hang out early.

Jillionaire has over fifteen years of experience and has created a unique sound which mashes indie dance and big room house with the caribbean rhythms of soca and dancehall. He has built up quite the resume that stretches an arms length including joining Major Lazer across the globe on a sold-out tour, curating the first Mad Decent showcase at Camp Bisco X, releasing his fair share of remixes and original tracks and plotting World Domination alongside the likes of Diplo.

To help you get acquainted with the man himself, we took some time to conduct this interview, which is a nice balance of funny and factual. Check it out beneath the cut!

KC’s Music Monday: Last Day of April Edition

Not sure if the last day of April has any significance to it (or if there’s some kind of made-up Internet holiday for it) but either way, it’s a Music Monday occasion. Enjoy.

First up is a new mix from OUTPOST1 and on the sly resident knomad for Sampled Radio split alongside Brian A. It’s available as a free download so you can bump it at your leisure to get pumped on May’s monthlies where you can catch knomad doing his thing live. Alongside WCDB, we’re co-hosting Jillionaire and Dre Skull alongside our residents and now that it’s almost May, the countdown has begun. Full track-listing for both Brian A and knomad available here.

Check out what else I’m listening to today beneath the cut. Also – I have a handful of local music to rinse through the next couple weeks and if you’d like your music to be added to my ever-growing queue feel free to e-mail me.
