Lemonade
Lemonade
Lemonade formed in San Francisco, initially crafting visceral, psychedelic and vaguely tropical musical journeys that pulled from the group’s myriad influences. In 2010 they released Pure Moods as an effort to steer their schizophrenic palate through pop waters. Combining warped rave, R&B, grime, a variety of global rhythms, and other styles too numerous to list, the record was an important stepping stone for an act only beginning to discover the emotional potency of out-and-out pop songwriting. Two years later, that transformation was complete with Diver, showing Lemonade operating as a focused unit, one more interested in speaking to your heart than blowing your mind.

Lemonade now return with their third studio album, Minus Tide, which finds inspiration in the beloved 80’s sophisti-pop of Prefab Sprout, the melodic ambience of Gigi Masin, the Ibiza-informed electronic forays of Primal Scream and the windswept, Balearic disco of mid-2000’s Gothenburg heroes, Studio. The band’s serene, cerebral sounds have reached a new apex on Minus Tide – the songwriting undeniably more mature and sophisticated. Still living in North Brooklyn and contributing to the community’s cultural patchwork, a sense of urban-itchiness is present in the music, as well as a growing environmental concern for the coastal regions of their Bay Area youth. Additionally, Minus Tide is a celebration of all forms of wanderlust and the eternal pursuit of pleasure through exploration.

Lemonade is Callan Clendenin, Ben Steidel and Alex Pasternak. Minus Tide is out September 9 on Cascine.
Rush Midnight
Russ Manning was formerly the bass player for Twin Shadow, but he's got a new gig now as Rush Midnight (note the matching initials there). Cascine Records is releasing RM's debut EP, +1, on October 30th.
Jubilee
Everyone loves Jubilee. How could they not? The girl is full of positive vibes, from her bubbly DJ sets to her smiley demeanor. She's long been known as "Brooklyn's bass sweetheart," but she's also an ace DJ, one who can capably move between upfront bass music, sweaty tropical jams, party rap, UK grime, house, techno, R&B, dancehall, and more.

Stylistically, Jubilee may be hard to pin down, but she's always been a girl on the move, both literally and figuratively. Growing up in South Florida, she immersed herself in the region's rave culture, dancing the night away at underground breaks parties while spending her days soaking up Miami bass on the radio. Eventually she made the move to NYC, where she quickly infiltrated the DJ circuit with her sticky grooves and comprehensive knowledge of all things bass.

These days, she's still a regular behind the decks at various clubs and warehouse parties around the globe, but she also teams up with Mixpak label boss and serious badman Dre Skull to put on a banging party of their own called Mixpak Extended Play. Beyond that, she's even managed to take her talents to the airwaves, hosting her own weekly show called Fireworks on Brooklyn Radio in addition to Mixpak’s new show on Radio Lily.
As if she wasn't busy enough already, Jubilee has somehow found the time to steadily increase her workload as a producer. Last year saw the release of her Pop It! EP via Mixpak, and she just recently dropped a collaborative record with frequent partner-in-crime Star Eyes via the white-hot Unknown to the Unknown imprint. Throw in remixes of Canblaster, Hydraulix, Creep, and Zuzuka Poderosa, and it's easy to say the Jubilee is quickly becoming a go-to producer, particularly when artists need to inject their tunes with some infectious energy and dancefloor flavor.

Much like X-Men character from whom she takes her name, Jubilee has got fireworks up her sleeve. We're just lucky that she's elected to use her powers for the good of dance parties everywhere.
