I don’t know about you, but I easily get sick of what’s overplayed in life. Boys who are all talk, politicians who are all talk, bosses who are not creative…the boring and the routine. Ugh. What I especially get sick of are radio stations that overplay the same trite songs. —I mean, can’t Katy Perry come out with a track that doesn’t sound like it was made for 15 year olds? Also I love Pitbull, but there are no international cities named in “International Love”. I mean, really??
Lately I’ve been diving into more hip beats and sounds that you wouldnt find on radio stations…..hipster if you want to call it. Yes, the PBR drinking, hipstamatic photo taking (Instagram is too mainstream these days), bike-riding nouveau-mixed beats. Seriously, these tracks are so refreshing, why can’t we hear them on the radio!?
I’ve metioned to you before how awesomely addicting is the group RAC, and they’ve come out with yet another sexy remix of Lana Del Rey’s Blue Jeans. Love how Lana’s sporting the hipster cult gaia look in this picture above.

And while British pop star Ellie Goulding is cathching American radio waves with her 2011 hit Lights (you should listen to the Bassnectar Remix of Lights as well), her single Starry Eyed with Brooklyn based Theophilus London , remixed by electro-pop act Penguin Prison, is certainly a true cross-border hit. Sorry Pitbull.

I’m going to try to introduce more indie-electro-pop sounds over the weeks, let me know what you think.
