Cool news: Our song Break Free is going to be featured on MTV’s The Real World tonight. It plays at 10/9c, so tune in if you can.
2013 has been another exciting year for us. We released a free mashup album, a few new songs, some remixes, and got to play sets in front of incredible fans and with inspiring artists. Thank you for all of the positive support over the last year. You are the fuel to the fire.
As this year comes to an end, we decided to make a list of our favorite songs of 2013. Some of these songs are by artists we’ve worked or played shows with, some are by artists we hope to work with someday, and some are by people we’ll probably never meet. But ALL of these artists made songs that ARE MY JAM!
(And that’s the collective “my”, because saying “our jam” just didn’t sound right.)
We hope you like ‘em.

I’m a firm believer that songs can make you want to put your hands up without the lyrics explicitly telling you every thirty seconds to, “put your hands up”… This is the most overused lyric in anything EDM related. Please, let’s just have this term die out.
… And enough with songs referencing “molly” to seem edgy or whatever. That shit got old before it even started.
In the middle of a cloud covered night, you find yourself walking home, down a bare stretch of suburban street. No cars passing by, and not a single light shining through the windows of surrounding homes. Not one sound, save for the occasional small rock grinding the pavement beneath your feet. The safety of a streetlight engulfs you as it approaches, and then passes, leaving you again in darkness. Keep your eyes on the next in an attempt to drown out any shadows on the sides of the street. Half way between the safety of the last light and the next, there is a quick shuffle off to your left. You glance over as you continue forward, making sure your pace doesn’t slow any. Your eyes return forward, but your legs freeze. All you can do is breathe. Deeply, frantically, as the panic sets in. You know you aren’t alone… Happy Halloween.
Our new song is out on iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, etc. We’d love if you’d take a listen and if you like it, pass it around.
