Lucidity Countdown 2016: Week 4 – J Phlip

March 31, 2016
Post Image

Counting down the last days until “Crossroads” Lucidity can be stressful! Packing the right clothing for unpredictable weather, making sure your headlamps are ready to rock for hours, meal prep, crafting, getting those gifts ready… tis the season ya’ll!

To help you close up those loose ends and at least feel like you are prepared, we have a three simple tips to make your weekend fun, comfortable, and conscious.

First things first, weather. Santa Barbara is pretty temperate, but the nights can be surprisingly cold. Make sure to bring boots, plenty of socks, mittens and a warm hat or scarf to keep toasty throughout the night. Lucidity offers a Silent Disco for those of you who like to get groovy late night, but after about 2AM the temp drops significantly for the next few hours.

Next, water and food. Lucidity has water stations around the festival. Make sure to bring reusable water bottle to eliminate plastic bottle waste. Bring your own cups, bowls, plates, and silverware for grubbing- the food vendors encourage and appreciate this. Meal prep is an awesome way to cut back on food costs and ensure you are eating what you know your body needs.

Last, plan ahead for your camp’s trash situation. Trashcans are an easy way to localize camp trash and keep it contained. Large, pop-up laundry hampers work beautifully. Try to make signs for your recycling, trash, and compost so everyone is on the same page. If you smoke, bring an empty Altoid container to put those butts in.

Though brief, once you have the above points checked off your list, it’s pretty much smooth sailing with the promise of a good time from there on out.

Though some festival patrons are lucky enough to call Santa Barbara their home, others are commuting from all over CA. To kill the inevitable anxiety as we await our Lucid journey, we have been releasing a mix a week featuring artists from Music is Love’s Nomad’s Stage. Starting with San Francisco’s Sex Pixels, we have taken you to Utah with X&G, to central CA with LA’s with Wood Holly, and now back to the Bay with Queen Dirtybird, J.Phlip.

It is pretty safe to say that J.Phlip (AKA Jessica Phillippe) has secured the spot as everyone’s favorite house-loving princess, and if not, it’s probably because you haven’t been #blessed enough to see this superstar behind the decks. Snagging her first DJ rig at the tender age of 19, Illinois-born Phillippe started making a name for herself in Chicago. In 2008, J.Phlip signed with Dirtybird, often seen opening for heavy hitter Papa Claude. Driven and full of life, it wasn’t long before J.Phlip was traveling the world, residing in Berlin for a bit she acquired a fresh sound to bring back to the Bay. Coming back to the States at the perfect time, when Dirtybird was finally getting the recognition it deserved, worldwide.

J.Phlip’s sets are always ones to look out for. She plays off the environment creating a personal and rather intimate experience with her listeners. Whether that be breakbeat, tech-house, or the deepest shit you can find, this babe will not let you down, and will feed into your audio desires.

If J.Phlip is anything, it’s versatile, Jess just gets it. Her exclusive mix for “Crossroads” shows her range as an artist making you wonder, “How many tracks does she have in her library?!” A softer side of house, indie-inspired, enchanting, and fanciful, while still incorporating that funky bass you crave, transiting to worldly tech-house, gently picking up the tempo to soulful house. Easy listening, you can play this out wherever and whenever.

Lucidity Countdown 2016: Week 3 – Wood Holly

March 23, 2016
Post Image

Crunch time music lovers! In just a couple weeks, we will be pitching our tents and making a temporary home under the coastal Santa Barbara sky blanket for a weekend of dancing, loving, sharing, and creating.

While last week we were praising the diversity of Lucidity, this week we want to focus on the intimacy of this magical festival. If you have been once, you probably recognized Lucidity’s huge focus on local community. Lucidity is the kind of festival you walk around and are constantly, and wonderfully, bombarded by friends- everyone from old classmates, to your favorite local bartender, Lucidity is the homie festival, highlighting the collectiveness of this beautiful city, whether you have been blessed enough to live here or not, you will feel right at home.

For all you just about an hour away in La La Land, we have one of your very own, Wood Holly for this week’s promo mix. Gathering recognition just a few years ago from Dirtybird heavy-hitters, Holly’s hip-hop and electronic background proved the be the perfect addition to the San Francisco based booty-bumping tech-house crew, allowing him to release “Ass Out” with Sage Armstrong under the label last winter. In addition, Holly is a member to the Perfect Driver label. Based in LA, Perfect Driver is an exiting new label focusing on nu bass house from talent world wide.

In this week’s mix, you can expect a trip from deep house to West Coast bass-forward house to the transcendental sounds of Berlin inspired tech, Holly is all about that dark, sexy, full-bodied house music.

Grab this week’s mix below, and if you haven’t (shame on you) grab your ticket to Lucidity 2016 here.

Lucidity Countdown 2016: Week 1 – Sex Pixels

March 7, 2016
Post Image

Time to tell your mom you’re off “camping”, festival season is creeping up on us quickly, and we couldn’t be happier!

We invite you to Lucidity’s 5th chapter in their ongoing 6-part saga. Initiating our collective journey with Awake In Your Dreams, the first chapter introduced awareness and self-discovery. Following, “Totem’s Return, encouraged it’s patrons to delve into themselves a little deeper, finding our totem, our personal strength, and self-confidence. Once we had focused on healing and understanding ourselves, the third chapter reveles itself, Universe. Here is where we realized that it is all in the same, we are all one, we are everything, everything is us. This recognition does not come without the initial chapters, reminding us to love ourselves before we can fully be whole-heartedly accepting and completely free. Next, Kindred Quest brought us from the Universe, back to Mother Earth, grounding us, reminding us, not only that we are not going through this life-thing solo, but that our actions and words affect those around us. While the journey feels subjective, it’s ultimately objective, a collective. In Kindred Quest the importance of tribe, family, friends, community- whatever you want to call it- comes into focus.

This year Lucidity’s chapter arguably mirrors the current state of our nation. Entitled Crossroads, this chapter is where you are tested. A combination of cleaning out and planning, “Crossroads” challenges you to focus on what strengthens you and your soul and what doesn’t, encouraging you to rid yourself of anything that doesn’t benefit not only you, but your tribe. It is not an easy chapter, but possibly one of the most important.

Only a few weeks before we embark on this extremely important chapter together and we need music, right?! To help initiate the intent you plan to set for this festival, we will be promoting four artists performing at Music is Love’s curated stage, Nomad’s Nook during this year’s adventure, Crossroads.

Our first mix of this year’s promo series features San Francisco DJ duo, Sex Pixels. We are excited to begin our series with a wildcard, dare we say “crossroad”? House or big-bass trap: what are these bay babes going to whip up for you? Generally when you seek out a DJ, you know what you are doing to get, they are a dubstep DJ, a techno DJ, an electro DJ… they all seem to maintain their “place”. Not these boys, they truly love all forms of music, which, as a listener is not only exciting, but reassuring as their broad spectrum of taste enables them to successfully put together sets that completely capture the moment.

Comprised of bay area locals, Tyler Tan and Brendan Trudell, the duo claims they don’t have a favorite genre, and it definitely shows at events like Burning Man where you can find them playing chilled out daytime house at Pink Mammoth, or a 3Am trap heavy set at  Basshenge. Put simply these two are “equal opportunity” employers when it comes to the music game, truly promoting what we are all about- Music is Love, all of it!

Going on to play their 4th Lucidity, the Pixels have been impressing us with their West Coast inspired house sets featuring deep, booty-bumping tech house that’s as fun to dance as it is to listen to. No clue what they will be playing at their set at this year’s Lucidity, but as for now, we have a their set from last year at Nomad’s Stage to get your brain noodle into fest gear.

Free Hugs

September 1, 2015
Post Image

On the scene for over 15 years now, Huglife (previously DJ Slink) does not disappoint in releasing the progressive big-bass sound us future bass and trap aficionados war to hear. Big, trippy and filled with tantalizing sales and provocative bass lines, Huglife’s specializes in some of our favorite remixes and mixtapes ever.

As those of you who are active on SoundCloud know, their copyright rules have gotten a bit out of hand (aside from the fact that it just sucks now because unwarranted ads randomly invade your stream). Because of this, Huglife’s account was deleted by a report from jealous hater that reported his account, forcing him to start afresh about a year ago. Funny because isn’t everything sampled, remixed and edited now? Reinventing and reconstructing is what producers do, often times making you enjoy a track more than you did in it’s original form or completely changing the vibe or the go to match your style. Perfect example is his remix of “So Good To Me,” originally a playful, soul-house track, transformed with a hug to a chilled-out bass beauty.

Grab the Huglife way below:

Sherlock [Promo Mix 015]

May 1, 2015
Post Image
Moving to Bordeaux, France, in the pursuit of furthering his education, Sam Bassett AKA Sherlock, emits a fresh energy and bass-y buzz into the EDM wave that has taken over the world. For an artist fully inspired by his environment, a move proved to be a source of inspiration for the young creative, mentioning,  “I would really love to try producing in the great outdoors one day, like on a treehouse or on top of a mountain, I think it would really broaden my horizons.” 

Only tapping into producing three years ago, Sherlock quickly discovered the sound he needed to stand out in a stream of artists seemingly stuck in a rut replicating each other. For every one standout and innovative producer, there are about 100 more trying to replicate his/her style- Sherlock is a case of the former, an artist who is truly pushing the bounds of creativity with a truly novel style.Entering the scene with what he would define as a progression of “gritty [and] dark grime, to weird house stuff;” today Sherlock’s brainchild is a sound that we both have difficulty placing. The most obvious “future bass” denotation is favored, but hearing his music you realize there is much more. Bassett’s style is cooly calculated and elaborate, even within his mix, his tracks completely stand out in the best way possible. Super dreamy and wavy, Sherlock utilizes avant-garde artists to compliment his new age bass and capricious synth work, often taking the listener for an unexpected, but fully welcome, turn.

Sherlock’s exclusive mix for Music is Love carries a licentious energy you’ll want to maintain for hours after listening.

Lucidity Countdown 2015: Week 4 – Doug English

April 3, 2015
Post Image

It’s here. The final week counting down to hula-hooping babes, vibrating bass music, house heads bopping around Nomads’, yoga wherever and whenever, celestial and unworldly light installations, beefy speakers releasing pristine sound, strangers that become your friends, and strangers that become your lovers. Lucidity 2015, we love you already and we can’t want to play with you!

Rounding up our 4-part series is house producer, Doug English. Seemingly coming out of nowhere, our first listen was initiated with Doug’s Hood Life EP release via flourishing house label, Perfect Driver, early in 2014. Since then, English has rapidly become recognized for his booty-tech style influenced deeply from Detroit’s decades-standing house scene. Clearly we weren’t the only ones digging Dougie’s sound as it appeared to be a DirtyBird favorite to DJ all last summer, boosting English’s credibility as one of deep house’s newest and hottest underground producers. Though still working through his early 20s, his age is anything but a factor as Doug’s ear for music seems to surpass what is generally appreciated during his age. Complimenting the minimal quality of tech and deep house, the early 20-something superstar DJ/producer pulls classic inspiration from the windy music city’s funky Motown roots, livening up his production and sets with some serious soul.

If Doug’s music was personified, it would be well-groomed, dressed in all black, and the coolest catch at the party. English’s style evokes an air of house snobbery that we can totally get down with. You want to dance with your pinky up in the air and your booty bouncing off the ground? Awesome, we love it.

With plans to release a new EP through Brazilian-based house label, Grooverdose Records, this summer looks as promising as the last for an Englishman in Detroit.

Love what you hear? So do we. We will see you at Doug English’s set at the Nomads’ Stage, Saturday night at 7:30, for Lucidity Festival 2015, Kindred Quest. Last minute tickets? Grab ’em here.

Lucidity Countdown 2015: Week 3 – Truth

March 27, 2015
Post Image

As March quickly comes to a close, we find ourselves yet another week closer to Lucidity Festival’s fourth annual celebration, Kindred Quest. This year’s lineup invites festival-goers to experience an exceptional array of DJs, under a variety of different styles and genres, as they gather together for the weekend. With sets ranging from experimental modern bass artist Thriftworks and Dirtybird‘s Christian Martin to the acts featured on the previous weeks of our Lucidity Countdown, Pumpkin and Grensta, the music featured at this year’s Lucidity Festival is guaranteed to appease even the most avid music lover. With one more week gone by, we can add yet another highly anticipated act to Music is Love’s Lucidity Countdown series: Truth.

With a signature dialed back tempo, powerfully dark productions and profound underlying message, New Zealand bass duo, Truth, has taken the low-end dubstep game by force. Since rising to fame in 2007, Truth has perfected a unique style that bridges the gap between deep, heavy, dubstep and emotionally rich productions. As Truth continues to cut a clear pathway through the international music scene, they carry with them the exceptional skill of thunderous sound production, impeccable DJing abilities and an insightful philosophy on the nature of “truth.”

As the third featured act on our Lucidity Countdown, Truth delivers a seriously dark twist to our promo series. While seamlessly transitioning between some of bass music’s freshest tracks, timeless Truth productions (like “The Only Ones”, “Burglar” and “Devil’s Hands VIP”), and dubstep classics like Skream’s “Midnight Request Line,” Truth’s Lucidity Countdown mix perfectly demonstrates their dynamic influences and command over their signature heavy sound. With an infectious and understated style, Truth consistently excels in fusing the freshest elements of ominous, twisted, dubstep and seductively deep bass vibes. It’s safe to say that Truth will be attracting only the most diehard dub fans to their set at Lucidity’s Nomads’ stage.

Catch Truth Sunday evening, April 12th at Lucidity Festival 2015, Kindred Quest, and grab tickets here!

Lucidity Countdown 2015: Week 2 – Grensta

March 20, 2015
Post Image

Excitement is buzzing around all of us here at Music is Love as we approach the last three weeks counting down to Lucidity Festival, 2015, Kindred Quest hosted in the hills above Santa Barbara, CA.

As we approach April 10th, make sure you are becoming familiar with the line-up so you don’t miss out on any of your favorite artists! With three amazing stages for you to dance at all weekend (Alive, Lucid, and Nomads’), there is absolutely something for everyone!

We are continuing our promotional series with another Lucidity ’15 promo mix. Our second mix features the rhythmic sounds of Bay Area house producer/DJ, Grensta, as he takes you for one groovy-ass journey through his seamless mix which encompasses a wide-range of rhythmic house sub genres.

Perfect for pre-partying, Grensta’s mix encourages you to shake your groove thang! Initiating his mix with Latin-inspired house, Grensta progresses to deep house, funk, tech, and soul, to nostalgic, bouncy house.

From a young age, Grensta has taken an active interest in displaying himself creatively through music. From playing classical instruments when he was younger, to interning at Om Records, to working at Guitar Center to ensure he has the best gear, the young producer loves music and takes every opportunity he can to be fully submersed in it.

Being a Half Moon Bay local allowed Grensta to become well-aquainted with the San Francisco Bay Area community; a place near home where he, and many artists, find inspiration through the the eclectic places and people. Only beginning to produce five years ago, Grensta has established his presence in the Bay and surrounding Northern California area by delivering booty shaken’ house sets that are as fun to dance, as they are to listen to. Recently winning Insomniac’s “Discovery Project,” you can expect to see Grensta’s name at big events in 2015.

Catch Grensta at the Nomads’ stage Friday evening, and grab tickets for Lucidity 2015 Kindred Quest, here!

Lucidity Countdown 2015: Week 1 – Pumpkin

March 13, 2015
Post Image

To our excitement, Lucidity is quickly approaching as one of the first festivals of the season, but there is no reason or room for panic! Music is Love is here to help countdown your last days in the real world before you call Live Oak your home for the weekend. Much like last year, Music is Love has invited four artists to prepare their own promotional mix for Lucidity. We will be releasing a mix every week for a month until we are all together in beautiful Santa Barbara. Our first promo mix showcases Pumpkin and his uncanny ability to bring together music lovers from all areas with his “new familiar” sound.

Upon first listen, you will understand that Pumpkin’s sound is synonymous for magic. Think about it- the only time you see swarms of festival goers diverting from their “choice” stage, is during a Pumpkin set. Here is one of the rare locations where we can whiteness house heads, bass enthusiasts, and live music lovers not only coming together, but dancing together. Pumpkin sets have one mission: to make you feel good- really good, and with gratitude we can say that we have never felt any other way before, during, and after.

Personally witnessing Pumpkin’s first show through The Do Lab 4 years ago, he has quickly established himself as not only a favorite DJ to the Do Lab as an organization, but also a choice performer for California transformative festivals throughout the year. Pumpkin, AKA Nick Alvarado, is the guy that was showing you all the coolest bands in high school. The dude who had that new-new on lock. Your first friend digging for music on blogs. The guy you were constantly nagging for mixes. Just so, Pumpkin has some of those most uplifting, fun, and positive jams on lock, never passing up an opportunity to show off some of the best remixes to your favorite indie, rock, hip-hop, funk, and folk tracks. Although Pumpkin’s name is extremely well-known in our festival community, he maintains an image as an underground artist by keeping a relatively low profile. A love for the underground combined with his bank of current and past crowd-pleasing tunes curates a sound that anyone will not only appreciate, but enjoy.

Catch Pumpkin at the Nomads stage, Saturday at 6PM for a special sunset set, and grab tickets for Lucidity 2015 “Kindred Quest” here!

October 7, 2014
Post Image
Music is Love would like to properly introduce you to su na.

Producer and personality based in Minneapolis, su na is in large part, Alec Ness, but seemingly his own entity. Within the past year, su na has quickly gained recognition due to his recent releases under budding new record labels, SYZYGY and Flow-Fi.

A smooth and steady mixture of “Soulection” style R&B, future bass and UK garage balance su na’s clean yet playfully naughty sound. Give a listen to su na’s mix for Music is Love and learn a little more about him in our mini interview below.

Where do you gather your inspiration from?

I’m very inspired by visual art and other mediums of work. I also take a lot of inspiration from my peers and the community of future producers on SoundCloud.
