Pretty Lights turned heads new and old with the release of his Grammy nominated A Color Map Of the Sun album that incorporated the revolutionary production method of recording to vinyl then sampling his own vinyl to create each track. Throughout the multi-year process it took to create the album, he ended up having quite a few b-side tracks that never made the cut. He has released a very special vinyl full of the B-Sides and more remixes from his album called The Hidden Shades in spirit of Record Store Day that took place this Saturday (April 19th). While they are only available to own through the limited vinyl release, we have the full stream for your listening pleasure.
The release features 4 new originals alongside 4 remixes of those new tracks from Odesza, Blue Sky Black Death, Emancipator and Love and Light. We had a taste of the release with "Lost and Found" alongside the incredible remix from Odesza.

Though much has changed over the years as our Boulder, Colorado friends Big Gigantic have grown in popularity, their specialty of producing timeless bass infused electro-soul / funk music that pays homage to jam band roots has only increased with experience. Producer and Saxophone player Dominic Lalli has left nothing behind as he delivers the groups' fifth studio album The Night Is Young hours before embarking on a massive winter tour alongside live drummer Jeremy Salken. The easily digestible album consists of eight tracks for the masses to bust the proverbial groove to whether it be listening amongst yourself or experiencing their legendary live shows. Outside of Big Gigantic's two singles "Touch The Sky" and "The Night Is Youg ft. Cherub" released leading up to the album, "Blue Dream" might take the claim as our favorite track on the album; capturing that signature funky soulful side of Big Gigantic with just the right amount of electro grit we can't get enough of. The release is available as a free download below and is also on iTunes. Enjoy

Brooklyn, New York based electronic producer / DJ Gramatik has kept us anxiously waiting for his biggest project to date, The Age Of Reason, which Thissongissick.com has the exclusive first listen of the album in its entirety! Denis brought a talented cast of singers and muscians for The Age of Reason; working with the likes of Cherub, ILLUMNTR, Orlando Napier, and his Lowtemp label-mates Gibbz and Exmag. Before layering his collaborators tracks with the perfect amount of bass and funk, Gramatik samples their various instruments to give each tune a unique live band anesthetic. My personal favorite is "Torture", a song which features the talented Eric Krasno on guitar and vocals. New addition to the project Eric Mendelson of Exmag plays guitar all throughout the album providing an undeniable soul to Gramatik. If you have caught Gramatik at a festival or venue over the past year, chances are you've heard some of these tracks. We are less then a month into the year and I will already claim this as being one of the best album releases of 2014. You can stream it in full below, and will be available for FREE download exclusively via torrenting the album at bittorrent.com Saturday!
