Our friends at Boiler Room have upped both Toro y Moi's excellent 55-minute Boiler Room Los Angeles mix and Laurel Halo's recent 50-minute live set from Boiler Room London to their soundcloud page; listen to both below -- you can also watch their sets here and here -- and grab the LH set for free download:
Laurel Halo injects a warped frenetic groove into Lianne La Havas' charming and soulful single "Forget" on this spacey, bass-heavy techno remix. Download Laurel's rework, and check Lianne's original video, below. In other Laurel Halo news, she has a new release called Sunlight on The Faded -- comprised of all non-Quarantine tracks -- coming soon on Hyperdub, and her U.S. tour kicks off this Friday in Brooklyn. Check all the dates after the jump...
This summer's GvsB II was arguably the best thing this blog has ever been a part of here in our hometown of Dallas, and now we have an epic visual summary of the night, shot by our brilliant friends at Yours Truly, and made possible through our collaboration with the UGG Australia Creative Council...
Thanks to everyone that packed out the Granada for GvsB II, and eternal love to Glass Candy, Chromatics, Twin Sister, Taken By Trees, Laurel Halo, A.Dd+, Sober + Yours Truly for making the night so memorable. Check some photos + videos from the evening below, tons more after the jump. See y'all next year.
GvsB II is only 2 days away, so our dude Sober --- who happens to be the best DJ in TX, and will be party-rocking all night between sets -- put together this perfect official fest/summer mix featuring all of the bands playing on Saturday night, as well as some other cool stuff he's been into lately. Sober will have a very limited number of physical copies of the mix to give away at the event, so show up early and go find him. Tracklist after the jump...
