DJ PLAYLIST NOV1-8

All sorts of variety in this week’s DJ playlist. DJs chose tracks from big names (Ed Sheeran, Lana Del Rey) but also gave us some less well-known artists (oshi, coyote kisses, shlum). This week’s playlist is full of new music to get you through the last day of fourth week. Throw on some headphones, share it with a friend, be happy.

SONG OF THE DAY: CONTRA – “DIAMONDS IN MY MOUTH”

The world of electronic music has its share of well-known, burnt-out DJs. The EDM scene is littered with their legacies. For every decaying EDM star, there are thousands of undiscovered artists waiting to be found in the depths of Soundcloud. Most of these DJs make garbage music. Contra is not one of these DJs. Real name Conner Lund is an up-and-coming producer at UCLA; and has some serious potential in the electronic music world. His latest release “Diamonds In My Mouth” is a total departure from his previous Thomas Jack-esque tropical house vibe. “Diamonds in My Mouth” features some skillful vocal chops and an overall fuller sound from the Louisville, CO based artist. Follow Contra on (twitter: mynameiscontra) or on (soundcloud: Contra303). If a recent tweet from Contra is any indication, we’ll be hearing more lots more from Contra in the coming months and years.

All Hail Contra

SONG OF THE DAY: PELL – “QUESO”
