The Philly Five is a mixtape concept I came up with about a year ago. Taking Fiv...
Grouplove “Ways To Go”
This track is about to blow up if you haven’t managed to hear it yet. Grouplove’s new single is flat out dope. Looking forward to hearing more from them. Their album ‘Spreading Rumors’ drops September 17th.
MGMT “Your Life is a Lie”
New single from MGMT – video is super creative although the lyrics are a bit depressing. Looking forward to this album dropping September 17th.
Vacationer “Everyone Knows”
This is my favorite track from Vacationer right now – straight summer vibes. The lead singer is actually Ken from ‘The Starting Line’. I had the awesome opportunity to open two shows at the Electric Factory for TSL back in December. (Also check out ‘Good as New’.
Robert DeLong “Global Concepts”
My brother and cousin actually put me on to Robert DeLong. This track opens with indie vibes fused with moombahton drums and the drop is huge. This kid is a one man band and could have a very bright future. (I know I’m late on this)
21 Pilots “Car Radio”
These guys performed at the 104.5 pretty much opening and stole the show. If you get a chance go see them live (Also check out ‘Holding On To You’.
Breakbot “Baby I’m Yours”
Another awesome track that has been out for a few years but is back in my rotation lately.
A comment made by Breakbot on Facebook: “To those who think that it’s just a coincidence, or that “we are both inspired by the same artists”, let me just tell you that Bruno asked my label if he could cover “Baby I’m yours” a few months ago and we said no. Then he recorded “treasure”. To be perfectly honest, I’m not mad at all, if anything I am rather flattered that someone selling millions of mp3s is interested in my music.”
Red Hands “Walk off the Earth”
I know I’m slightly late on this one – but this is definitely a jam. (Also check out their accoustic version of ‘Gotye” Somebody That I Used to Know)
Major Lazer “Bubble Butt”
This track is about as ridiculous as it sounds and then you watch the video… Quickly making it’s way up the charts I’d bet you start hearing this on the radio in the next few weeks. Until then it’s definitely working in the club scene
The Mowgli’s “San Francisco”
Awesome record by these guys and looking forward to seeing them live July 7th at the 104.5 show. Also check out “The Great Divide”
Passion Pit “Constant Conversations”
My favorite band for a few years now – finally got to see them live this weekend and they didn’t disappoint. Also checkout “Sleepyhead, Take a Walk, and Carried Away”
Really into this whole record – such a different/ chill sound. I have it stuck on repeat. Also check out “Tessellate”
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis “Thin Line”
Possibly my favorite track off the album. Macklemore continue’s to amaze me with tracks like this and Ryan Lewis production is years ahead of his time. Enjoy (Also check out ‘Ten Thousand Hours”)
