Prince Fox put together a solid 27 minutes of this hour-long mix from’s “Cloudcasts” series. Over the course of the past six months, Prince Fox has established himself as a capable remixer, most notably his work with Hotel Garuda on Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.” I was happy to hear Royal’s “Round 2” a couple songs in, illustrating Prince Fox isn’t all about … Continue reading frankles free fridays

If you’re looking for Big Room Bangers and thundering drops, these are not the songs you’re looking for. The Chainsmokers proved themselves to be suprisingly effective at adapting to a slower, more restrained style for their remix of Anna of the North‘s woozy indie pop song, “Sway.” It’s a looong way from “Selfie,” which is a good thing because I think that’s the polar opposite … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Sunday Sounds: Porter Robinson “Worlds”

After a couple successful years of touring, producing an anthem of his own, “Language,” as well as co-writing a second with Zedd (“Clarity”), Porter Robinson decided it was time to sit down and create an album.

It’s even been made … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Sunday Sounds: Duke Dumont

My introduction to Duke Dumont came in the week or so leading up to Coachella earlier this year. His name appeared on several lists of “Can’t Miss Artists” or performers you may not know about, but should. He fit perfectly into both categories. Duke Dumont’s tutelage came under the watchful eye (and talented ears) of Switch, an original member of Major Lazer and an accomplished … Continue reading Sunday Sounds: Duke Dumont

frankles free fridays: Electric Forest Part I

Michal Menert and Manic Focus’ new joint project, Manic Menert were added in the fourth and final round of line-up announcements last week.  Either JMac or Menert must have figured out how to Vulcan Mind-Meld, because they seem to be perfectly in sync and equally represented in “The One You Love.”  Looking forward to getting down with these fellas. Chrome Sparks has pretty album art, … Continue reading frankles free fridays: Electric Forest Part I
