Today The Untz and the Emo turns one! Get out the champagne! Keeping the blog up for the last year has been a challenge, but a labor of love, and TUATE has come a long way since my very first post. Here’s to another year of dancing your face off, and chilling.
Today’s Emo: Feel So Close / Jenna Garcia (Calvin Harris remix)
‘and there’s no stopping us right now / I feel so close to you right now’
Sleepy Monday morning stripped down slow jam… Jenna Garcia takes Calvin Harris’ don’t stop moving Feel So Close and turns it into something to curl up into. I came across Jenna and this track via earmilk, where I was surprised to learn she is a seventeen year old who has never stepped into a recording studio but is doing the whole YouTube thing. Even though this song is extremely simple, I see a lot of promise here just like in another young cover songstress, Birdy. #emo
Today’s Untz: Reaching Out / Nero (Fred Falke remix)
‘reaching out / for something to hold’
The boyfriend has ditched tumblr and carried out a relaunch of his own blog, thetrashjuice.com. It is in a word celestial. Check it out, I am totally not biased. Today’s untz is pulled right from its opening week:
‘Fred Falke is a falkeing genius… sorry had to. He takes Nero’s mashup up of an old Kano tune + a Hall and Oats tune and turns a dubstep song into a french house masterpiece. This is such an uplifting tune. Nero’s version isn’t bad, but I guarantee if you dropped both on the d floor, Fred Falke’s would send the crowd into a sweaty frenzy. Epic sunsets all around.’ #untz
