Outlook On Music Mix Series – OOM:3/Barely Legal

The latest volume of the Outlook On Music mix series features up-coming, female talent courtesy of Birmingham-born, London-based DJ Barely Legal.

According to the guys at Outlook she possesses an ‘effortless style that draws from classic UK Garage and Grime to the most up to date and forward thinking bass‘. All we know is we like the sounds this girl makes. Check the mix and tracklist below.

Much love to Barely Legal also for including three tracks from our very own production-duo, the mighty EVERYMAN.

Carling Zest

Our Carling Zest track

You might remember that at the end of last week we told you about the great new interactive app Carling have going with DJ’s Yoda, Food and Jaguar Skills. If you don’t then refresh your memory here. We’ve been playing with the app on YouTube since then. It’s fairly addictive to say the least.

Annoyingly we don’t seem to be able to embed our latest track in here but you can go and listen at THIS LINK and if you can do better (wouldn’t be hard), get involved at youtube.com/carlingzest.

Carling Zest Summer Bottled App

YouTube Preview Image

To help launch their new limited edition summer beer Carling have called upon legendary artists DJ Yoda, DJ Food and Jaguar Skills to produce their own summer mash-ups to help launch their Carling Zest beer. The tracks are made using only  a variety of sounds the artists think define summer. DJ Yoda’s track is above, DJ Food and Jaguar Skills’ cuts, as well as behind-the-scenes bonus footage, can be found here.

After you’ve heard theirs you can have a go at making your own summer inspired mash-up on the YouTube app here. I didn’t even know YouTube apps like this existed, but they do, and by using it you could end up in winning some tickets to V Festival.

If YouTube isn’t your thing you can download it on your iPhone/iPad.

Tupac at Coachella

Surely this is the most insane thing ever?

Coachella always gets a lot of hype.  It looks crazy but this is beyond mad. A hologram version of Tupac appears to perform a couple of tracks in Dr. Dre and Snoop‘s set. Insane?!

My main want from this is Paul McCartney and Ringo need to bring back John and George for a show.

Solomon & Finder

Solomon & Finder – All I Need

Solomon & Finder are currently in the studio working on the follow up to last year’s Lust EP and have been kind enough to leak a little something from their sessions.

This Marvin Gaye/Method Man and Mary J Blige inspired rendition is the perfect thing to accompany your Wednesday evening.

If you still haven’t downloaded their debut EP ‘Lust’, you can do that here.
