The Upbeat

Will Calls by Grizzly Bear (Diplo remix)

Grizzly Bear hails from Brooklyn, NY. The band makes great electronic, rock, and pop music, as evidenced by this cool vid. But Diplo pushes their song, Will Calls, over the rock edge and into “trap city” (lol the below vid lol). And judging by this track, the metropolis seems quite lovely! I feel like Diplo has been spiraling down a path to more and more intense music that I haven’t been able to handle (It’s not you Dips, it’s me (it might be you)). But this is a marked difference from his stroll down the Skrillexy road. And his destination? Trap City! Population: you! Main export: bEatzZ !!

 

The Downbeat

Life Round Here by James Blake featuring Chance the Rapper

I know this song has been out for a while, but I’d like to call your attention to the music video in case you haven’t seen it. I’d also like to call your attention to the fact that Chance and James Blake are supposedly MOVING IN TOGETHER. To NME’s questions about the move, Chance explained that they are “getting a compound so we figure we might invite people round to the crib and make some music in the house, then kick them out and bring in some new people.” Uh, how do I get an invite to the commune..? I wanna channel creative expression at your tricked-out Utopia project!!
