Boston Bun Presents LEAN HOUSE MIXTAPE vol. 1

So you maybe asking yourself, “What is Lean House?” Well it is the latest from some of Paris’ movers and shakers lead by a French newcomer, Boston Bun. I feel like Lean House Europe’s answer to America’s own Moombahton but with a touch of Euro class #purplestuff. Sometime you just need to slow your roll and take life in at 108 bpm…

“Do we really need to explain why we scew and chop our favorite house tracks? This is a dedication to H-Town, from Paris with love, RIP DJ SCREW. HOUSIZZURP, SLOW MO ON THE DANCEFLOOR”

Lana Del Rey : Blue Jeans

Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans” is the B-Side to the emotional “Video Games” single coming out very soon. Yet another deep, highly stylized and oh so sexy music video to accompany this heartbroken track.

Music Video: Justice “Audio, Video, Disco”

Justice is still on their pursuit of becoming ELO circa “Time” and The Buggles circa “The Age of Plastic” with the title single “Audio, Video Disco”. At first listen the track did not do anything for me but paired with the visual of music video via So-Me their vision they are trying to get across becomes clearer as they are just trying to be a 70s Prog Rock band. Love they use a CP-80 and a Mellotron in the music video, attention to detail is everything. I will always be a sucker for behind the scenes Powerpop montage videos and Rock and Roll cliches.

George FitzGerald : Hearts

George FitzGerald returns with a deep track entitled “Hearts”. Everything good about UK dance music is thrown into this tune, deep bass, syncopated drum patterns, soulful RnB vocals, all glued together by an introspective chord progression. Get ready to get deep on the dancefloor.
