Pr0files – “Luxury” (STRAIGHT A Remix)

Sounds like… being seduced on the dance floor. Hard to tell if its the lights, the drinks, or the naked mannequin in the fog, but somehow the body is moving, grooving, and feeling all right.

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Future: The Luxury single is up for pre-order now and you get an instant download of TBE favorite “Call Yourself A Lover” when you order.

Pr0files – “Luxury”

Music for… feeling that crazy love and lust combo that infects the brain and affects the world around you. Like beer goggles, but opposite. Luxury love goggles. And who better to lay down the bass & silk than Pr0files.

Location: Los Angeles, CA. (Follow the fog)

Future: 7″ vinyl out 9/16/14.

[PREMIERE-MP3] Pr0files – “Song for Zula” (Phosphorescent cover)

[soundcloud id=’137724094′]

Pr0files are the 2013 champs of making heartbreak sexy so when they told me they were covering “Song for Zula” for The Burning Ear 5 Year Anniversary AlbumI knew the results would be wonderful. The original gets a lot more haunting, dark, danceable. You can almost hear the fog.

The Happy Birthday TBE Album – With exclusive covers and remixes from Noah Hyde, Pr0files, Lincoln Jesser, Parade of Lights and more…

This is just a teaser to get you all as excited as I am. To celebrate the 5th birthday of The Burning Ear I’m putting together an album of exclusive remixes of covers of the best TBE jams of the past 5 years.

The list goes one and makes my heart skip a beat every time I read it. And dont even get me started on heart skips when I LISTEN to these jams. Holy cow. You guys are in for a treat.

AND THEN, there is the epic album artwork above created by the amazing Meghan Ellie Smith. I’m basically a mess of excitement over here.

Stay tuned. The project rolls out next week….

[PREMIERE] Pr0files – “Call Yourself A Lover”

This debut track from Los Angeles’ Pr0files is working with a lot of the throwback 80s synth groove elements that I love so much these days. However, everything here seems tightened and polished to near perfection. Listening is like living simultaneously in my bedroom and the middle of a VHS tape about city skylines. The beat is tight and crisp, the lyrics cut deep, and I just can’t stop hitting repeat.

With all this packed into one song, it is no surprise that there are some seasoned vets behind this music. Lauren has worked with hip-hop legends as well as Corin from Purity Ring. Danny is in the severely underrated Baby Monster. Something tells me they may not have as much time for those projects coming up soon.
