[VIDEO] MEGA Music Video Roundup – 8.22.14

It has been a hooooot minute since I dropped some magical eye candy music video madness on you but since its Friday and you are half checked for the weekend anyway I’m giving you the mother load here. Do not watch these if you have had too much coffee. Your brain may pop. But don’t skip any videos either! No cheating.

Alright, I’ve got my snacks. Lets go!

Madi Diaz – “The Other Side” (SPEAK Remix)

It’s the calm before the storm. That quiet moment walking between the loud music of your car and the bass bursting through the door of the house party. Its faint at first but you know what is coming. And you can’t wait.

New Jam Digest 5.13.2014

Longtime TBE readers will remember the TBE Digest and its periodic roundup of jams that are ear-worthy but don’t necessarily need a whole post. I’d really like to focus posts on introducing new bands to you all but there are a lot of great jams by bands I’ve talked about enough already. I’ll compile them here! Blah, blah, blah, get to the music!

What did I miss!?

Pompeya – “Night”

Mmm, yeah. Such damn good summery grooves

Twin Shadow – “To The Top”

What a huge anthem!

The Swiss – “Antiquities”

All kinds of digital dreaminess! Ride it!

Memoir – “Minimum Wage (The Heist)”

Great new one from Memoir!

Madi Diaz – “Stay Together”

Oohh yeah! Finally released and sounding fantastic!

MadiDiaz – “Stay Together”


My favorite Madi Diaz song yet is finally available to post! Listen to it, sure, but really go see it live at her Bootleg residency with Carousel. Its another live. And that voice…

TBE Presents: Madi Diaz & Carousel Tonight at Bootleg Bar


Carousel has been dropping a steady stream of smooth new jams lately and have nabbed themselves a co-residency with Madi Diaz right here in Los Angeles. Tonight is week #2 of the tag team shows at Bootleg and yours truly will be DJing between sets. Come out for wall to wall jams with some great bands and great jams!

Remember when Madi Diaz played that TBE show with Harlan last year? What happened to her? Well, she has been working on some great new material that I am unfortunately not allowed to post but you can hear it live tonight! In the meantime dive into my the silky groover “Dancing In The Dark” and hone those moves.
