Summer Vibes? Look No Further Than Voodoo Farm’s “One Million Colors Of Summer” Mix [FREE DOWNLOAD]

“Give someone a hug, tell your mom you love her” instructs Liam Dirlam, aka VOODOO FARM, at the beginning of his “One Million Colors of Summer” mix. One of my favorite Washington D.C. boys, both on a personal level and from a music perspective, dropped a new mix on the world last week and it does nothing but scream WELCOME TO SUMMER. I’ve become good friends with VOODOO FARM, but the fact of the matter is we’ve been writing about his work long before I met him. Now residing in NYC, VOODOO FARM produces a unique brand of music along with videos and artwork that really call out to me. But I’m not the only one: this mix celebrates Liam hitting over one million plays on SoundCloud – a huge milestone for any up-and-coming musician.

VOODOO FARM’s shows are a ton of fun. They are always high-energy and any time I’ve seen him he drops awesome Bass Music tracks that few other big DJs are throwing down. VOODOO FARM’s productions range anywhere from Soul to Funk to House to Dubstep, Trap, and everything in between. I was a big fan of VOODOO FARM’s Hitsville U.S.A. EP which I posted last year when it dropped. Before that I was all about his remixes of “Grapvine” by Marvin Gaye and “How Will I Know” by the late Whitney Houston.

Liam told me he’s been really feeling tunes that hang out in the Future Soul realm recently, and that’s evident with this fantastic mix. I think you’ll be extremely impressed with “One Million Colors of Summer”, which I will easily be playing on repeat this Summer. Doesn’t matter if you’re chillin’ by the pool, cruisin’ with the windows down, or hangin’ at the beach – this one is a must-hear. And do me a favor: show VOODOO FARM some love if you like what is coming out of your speakers!

Already with a handful of artists roaming the wild west, the introduction of the east coast based Walker & Royce expands The Night Supply empire from coast to coast. The guys from New York bring us a great deep house tune with an almost jungle type introduction that quickly drops into a super fun chopped and sliced sample from the Marvin Gaye classic Just Like Music. Cleverly entitled Insanity this track has a plethora of elements and sounds that all work together to create a truly deep house track that is exciting from start to finish.

Marvin Gaye – Grapevine (Autograf Remix)

Now when you’re dealing with Marvin Gaye, there’s only one way you can go: soulful. From the very beginning of Autograf’s newest remix, you can hear a deep, soulful, late-night vibe that sucks you in with its erie waxing and waning sounds. For being newcomers, Autograf has certainly burst onto the scene quickly. The first remix of theirs that we took notice of was their take on Amtrac‘s “Walkin’” which came out only a matter of weeks ago and has already managed to rack up close to 100K plays on SoundCloud. This “Grapevine” remix is only the third track uploaded to their SoundCloud and has already done the rounds in a fraction of the time, nearing 100K plays in just the last week since its release. Autograf appears to be a bit of an enigma currently, as there is little to point to who is behind this the productions through their various social media channels, but mystery is never a bad thing. Grab the free download below and keep an eye out for more from Autograf.

Welcome to the World of Ingwell

Rarely do I find a producer that stops me in my tracks, makes me listen to his entire Soundcloud catalog, and has me calling my friends to express my excitement. DJ Ingwell has done all of this and more, blowing my mind as every track I find from him complex and exhilarating. With a long history of DJing in the hip hop community, Ingwell has successfully transitioned into the electronic community with his ability to cleverly blend his hip hop roots with trap, house, 90′s ganster rap, and even some 80′s beats. Working from the underground clubs in his hometown of LA to recently getting gigs in the swanky nightclubs of Las Vegas, it is only a matter of time before Ingwell blows up on the mainstage. So you might as well start listening now..

Sampling from Jay-Z‘s Ignorant Shit off the highly acclaimed “American Ganster” album, a heavy dose of spiked up trap slams you between the jigga man telling bitches to get off him. I said biiitch!!

Next up we have what Ingwell describes a “soulful ballad for lover boys of trap”. This edit of Martin Solveig‘s widely remixed We Own The Night might just might top the list with his upbeat clap that takes you right into the clouds.

Finally, some Marvin Gaye to help you seal the deal and Get It On! Ingwell brings it way back with this rendition of the legendary track that will be a crowd pleaser for a packed house or even better yet, a one on one with that special someone!

Funky, Fresh, and Soulful: VOODOO FARM – Hitsville U.S.A. EP

Our boy Liam Dirlam, aka VOODOO FARM, is back at it again – this time in the form of a four-song EP titled Hitsville U.S.A. Upon searching the term ‘Hitsville USA’ – I discovered it was the nickname given to Motown’s first headquarters in Detroit starting in 1959. For those of you candy ravers not familiar with Motown, it was a record label that saw mainstream success in the 1960s and 1970s, home to artists who wrote and performed Soul/R&B music; between 1961 and 1971 the label gave birth to 110 top-ten hits. It’s easy to see why Liam named his newest EP after one of the biggest Soul labels to ever exist: there ain’t no shortage of Soul sounds and samples in his tracks!

VOODOO FARM prides himself on a style of music he calls Moombahglitchtrohop. The first record of Liam’s I heard was his remix of Marvin Gaye’s “Grapevine” which we posted back in August of 2011. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of seeing him perform live (kills it) as well as listen to his consistently hyphy original tracks and remixes. If I had heard the Hitsville EP without having known who produced it, I would have thought a member of the Pretty Lights Music family put it out – maybe Gramatik or Griz, and “Rain” reminds me of a Paper Diamond track. As I said before, this is a funky and soulful release with three out of the four tracks coming in under 100BPM – that swerve-and-lean swag. “Cocaine” is a great tribute to the legendary Eric Clapton but I bet the guitarist never pictured his song with wobbles the way VOODOO FARM did. And how about that horn section? I thoroughly love each of these tracks and I think the vocal samples work perfectly for this style of music.

If you’ve been a supporter of Liam in the past, continue to do so. And if this is your first time hearing his work, make sure you show him some love over on SoundCloud and Facebook and dig through his crates a little deeper.
