From musically rich families and with high reaching hearts Rebecca Scheja and Fiona Fitzpatick have captured Sweden and also the international DJ scene. Rebecca and Fiona’s electronic is progressive and intricate. With an ambiance suitable for two innocent looking Swedish girls and an addictive pumping electro-synth bite, the duo have no problem rocking and charming the socks off the masses. Digg their Swedish dance moves! Check out their video “Turn it Down” above ft Kaskade (or he featured them, whichever), and also two variations of their recent track “Dance” below.
Big Black Delta’s the name, and cruising through space to electronic music’s their game. The unsigned experimental indie electronica band out of Los Angeles, aka BBD, has kept it low profile this year with only one concert listed on their official BBD website for June 29th, like 3 hours ago, or still right now! The lack of live shows is probably because they’re hard at work laying out new mind expanding riffs in the studio this year. And to show their love for fans of pulsating and mind warping sounds, they’ve released tracks off their new EP for free, get some!
If you tap into their BBD Twitter page you’ll see their recent buzz build up for the show included a tweet about a London UFO sighting and earlier today a message to a friend who couldn’t make the show, rooting him on to get some 9u$$y action. Odd timing for writing this post I think. I’m feeling blessed to have them on my Song of the Day music blog. These guys are right up my wanna-be astrophysicist video game playing alley(way).
Did I mention they’ve got a free EP for download. Please take advantage! Download Big Black Delta’s EP.
Now for the deep and heavy on this electro pop group capable of producing orchestral soundtracks. Venezuelan-born Jonathan Bates, formerly of the Los Angeles band Mellowdrone, began his solo project Big Black Delta out of the desire to create a new kind of pop music. By purposefully doing everything slightly wrong in the studio, using any instrument available, and combining it with UFO folklore, the Big Black Delta project was born. BBD’s first release BBDEP1 is available to fans as a free download on their website through topspin and BBD is putting the finishing touches on a full length LP, BBDLP.
Apart from BBD, Bates teamed up with M83 to do a remix of Daft Punk’s “Fall” off the Tron Legacy Soundtrack and was featured on and did a remix of Sonioi’s track, “Houdini”. Bates also co-produced “Mountaineer” and “Lady Killer” for the band White Sea (with Morgan Kibby of M83) and often writes and performs with them.
James Delay is an emerging electronic music artist out of London England whose debut on Russell Club Records is most likely making steady electronic pulses through the digital ether as we speak. His music is calm calculated and powerful like an unconscious force moving the energy of the world across the grid lines of our cities. The music builds and creeps, like a slow rising tide or stream of clouds rolling by, influencing your perception whether you realize it or not. It’s like a new emergent property, slowly assembling itself out of the bits and pieces of our electronic world, coming together, forming something new and powerful. And deep inside the heart of the machine there’s something very smart and very aware that knows exactly what it’s doing.

The artist Santigold (formerly Santogold), real name Santi White, is a dub, new wave, psychobilly artist from Philadelphia who released her debut album in 2008. She was the lead singer for other groups until going solo around 2005. She changed her name in 2009 because a Jewelry business was threatening to sue her. I prefer Santigold better actually.
I really appreciate the variety in her songs and I love this song in particular. I know it’s been in commercials and has been heard everywhere, but I just have to add it to my Song of the Day blog because I can’t bear for anyone to have not heard about it.
There’s an interesting paragraph from her Wikipedia page where she addresses the fact that her music has nothing to do with hip-hop or R&B.
– In a May 2008 interview, White stated that critics and online music vendors were labeling her music as hip hop, rap, and R&B because she is black, saying that it was racist. “Everyone is just so shocked that I don’t like R&B. Are you shocked that Good Charlotte isn’t into R&B? Why does R&B keep coming into my interviews? It’s pissing me off. I didn’t grow up as a big fan of R&B and, like, what is the big shocker? It’s stupid. –
