UMF-795x350

Album of the Day: Various Artists – Ultra Music Festival 2015

Ultra Music Festival (UMF) adalah festival EDM tahunan yang berlangsung di bulan Maret di kota (tentu saja) Miami, Florida, Amerika Serikat. Festival yang berlangsung secara outdoor ini merupakan salah satu yang bergengsi dan menghadirkan barisan line-up yang datang dari nama-nama paten di skena dance music. Begitu populernya festival ini, hingga setiap tahun selalu padat dihadiri oleh ribuan orang dari berbagai sudut dunia. Mereka berbondong-bondong untuk menyaksikan DJ/musisi EDM favoritnya beraksi. Mungkin kita tidak bisa menghadiri UMF tahun ini. Tapi jangan takut, karena kini telah hadir sebuah album kompilasi bertajuk “Ultra Music Festival 2015” yang siap menghadirkan keriuhan UMF dimana saja,

Pretty Girls

Single of the Day: Britney Spears & Iggy Azalea – Pretty Girls

Britney Spears tampaknya tanggap akan trend. Dan itulah yang mungkin membuat ia masih mampu memegang eksistensinya sebagai princess of pop, selain tentunya tetap berkarya. Iggy Azalea sendiri merupakan nama panas di skena musik dunia. Rapper asal Australia ini memang tengah menjulang namanya berkat album dan single suksesnya. Tidak heran jika kemudian ia menarik minat artis lain untuk bekerjasama, termasuk juga Spears. Setelah digaungkan dengan cukup intens, akhinya kolaborasi antara Spears dan Azalea, yang berjudul ‘Pretty Girls‘, akhirnya bisa kita simak juga. Dan senang Britney kembali ke gaya urban, ketimbang EDM yang akhir-akhir ini sering ia bawakan. Tentu saja dengan hadirnya Azalea lagunya

Album of the Day: Shayne Ward – Closer

Music make over? Possibly. Tapi kebenaran sejati mengenai “Closer“, album studio keempat dari Shayne Ward ini adalah kisah yang lebih luas dari itu. Perceraiannya dengan Sony pasca “Obsession” merupakan tantangan terberat dalam karir pemenang The X Factor UK ini. Ia menandai momentum tersebut dengan “1 door closed, A Thousand more will open.” Bergabungnya Shayne di bawah manajemen baru, Alan Edwards membuatnya bisa bernafas lega dan melanjutkan impian indahnya sebagai recording artist. Pun, perjodohannya dengan Mike Stock, sepertiga dari legenda produsen musik SAW, berhasil melahirkan album studio bertemakan throwback di tahun 2015 ini. ‘My Heart Would Take You Back’ yang terlebih

Brandon-Flowers-2015

Single of the Day: Brandon Flowers – Can’t Deny My Love

Berselang 5 tahun setelah album solo pertamanya, Brandon Flowers kembali merilis album solo berjudul “The Desire Effect”. Single berjudul “Can’t Deny My Love” didaulat menjadi lead single dalam album solo kedua dari vokalis band The Killers ini. Lagu “Can’t Deny My Love” ditulis oleh Flowers dan Darren Beckett, seorang drummer dari band The Red Romance. Secara umum lagu ini berbeda dengan lagu-lagu Flowers di album sebelumnya. Lebih banyak sentuhan synth dalam “Can’t Deny My Love”. Meski begitu, beat dan dentuman drum serta solo gitarnya membuat kita merindukan lagu-lagu poprock era 80-an. Setelah dirilis, single ini kemudian menjadi Most Viral Track

Lisa

Album of the Day: LiSA – Launcher

Merubah image lama menjadi suatu image yang baru memang tidaklah mudah dan hal ini sekarang dialami oleh penyanyi yang sudah malang melintang di dunia soundtrack anime atau anisong yaitu Risa Oribe atau yang sering dipanggil LiSA. Penyanyi yang sudah malang melintang dan sering mengisi anime populer seperti Fate/Zero, Sword Art Online, Mahouka dan yang paling baru Nisekoi ingin merubah image penyanyi anisong yang sudah lama ia sandang dan ingin menjadi seorang lady rocker. Hal ini memang dirasa wajar karena sebelum LiSA melejit berkat sumbangsih suaranya dalam anime Angel Beats dia adalah seorang vokalis dari band rock bernama “Chucky” yang terpengaruh
