Daily Round-Up For April 29, 2013
Well, hello there! Fancy seeing you here! It has certainly been an exceptionally long time since the last Round-Up. I am so very sorry about the lack of output over the past week! Life got real busy, real fast. And sometimes life makes it so that the things you love have to get put on hold. But, now I am definitely back, and happy to be here! The Daily Round-Up is redOrbit’s very own collection of all the most important and most interesting news to hit the world of independent and popular music. There has doubtless been a bunch of important news that has been missed in the absence of the Round-Up, and it might take a while to gather our bearings. But while we catch up, I will keep you guys at bay with a few morsels of delicious music news. Without any more delay, let’s jump right in!
As if they weren’t busy enough putting together their first major-label and full-length record, folk trio Daughter found the time to record a cover of Daft Punk’s newest single “Get Lucky.” The forever-wise folks at the Music Ninja are at a loss for words themselves; when pegged for a category to throw this song under, they simply decided on “Awesome.” Awesome it is. You can check it out by following the link back to The Music Ninja.
The electronic-music obsessives over at The Dancing Astronaut seem to be very keen on this next track, a promotional single from the drum and bass duo of Chase & Status, presumably off of their upcoming new record. The new song “Lost & Not Found” has been described as “nostalgic, yet radio-friendly” by the Dancing Astronaut crew. And you know if these guys sign off on a track that it will be complete quality. If you would like to check the new song out, you can do so by following the link back to The Dancing Astronaut.
So I have been so out of the loop that I wasn’t aware that the genius behind the Harlem Shake, electronic music producer Baauer, has been caught in a legal dispute over the samples he took and used to create his song. But wouldn’t you know it, Diplo, the godfather of the electronic scene and head of Baauer’s label, came to the rescue, settling the copyright claims, clearing the samples for Baauer, and generally saving the day in all respects. Job well done, Diplo. Job well done. If you would like to read more about this story, you can do so by following the link back to the Dancing Astronaut.
And that is all the news we have for today folks! Hope you have a great day! And check out my other articles here. Have questions, comments, suggestions, or love? As always, you can contact me through my email, or through Twitter @robincopple1. If you like I can include your message in a future edition of the Round-Up!
Stay safe you guys! I love you all.
