The Up-Turn Presents: A Conversation with Dream Koala

With the release of his Blur EP earlier this month, Dream Koala cemented his transition from a typical soundcloud producer to one of the most interesting young talents making music right now.  The Parisian musician first caught our attention with his incredible remix of Waka Flocka’s Brick Squad anthem ‘Hard in Da Paint’ and over the course of 3 months began to develop …

Video: Splashh – Vacation

Splashh “need a vacation” and for them that means driving around in golf carts, chilling with tennis chicks and jumping into pools in slow motion.  The video for ‘Vacation’ mirrors the development of the band, especially when compared to their video for ‘Headspins’.  As much as I still love ‘Headspins’, it’s hard to ignore the boost in songwriting talent that …

mp3: Dvnny Seth – Prespliffs (ft. Pradda) (prod. Treekeeper)

First impressions are everything and UK rapper Dvnny Seth is pulling off one hell of a first impression with ‘Prespliffs’.  After giving us all the summer bangers we could have ever asked for, Treekeeper is back to provide Dvnny the perfectly energetic instrumental to layout his crazed, cartoonish persona that comes across like everyone’s favorite adderall injected Danny Brown.  Sure, by …

mp3: Chris Villa – RIOT (Prod. Hanz)

If you listened to Hanz’s excellent beat tape WEALTH MADE TENSION VOL. 2, you might recognize this song from it (it was one of the highlights of the tape for me), and now it has been officially released.  Once again, Chris Villa and Hanz’s styles merge near-perfectly.  Villa puts down another deviously simple hook and a couple of his increasingly vicious …

mp3: Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe (Pyramid Vritra Remix)

No matter what anyone says, Carly Rae Jepsen stole the summer (and probably entire year) of 2012 with her hit pop jam ‘Call Me Maybe’.  It may not have received much blog love but I’d be surprised if even the hippest of hipsters will manage to get away this year without singing along to the chorus at least once.  Now …

mp3: Saint Michel – Katherine (Dream Koala Remix)

If you haven’t noticed yet, French producer Dream Koala has been absolutely killing it lately.  We first noticed Dream Koala when he sent us his awesomely unique remix of Waka Flocka Flame’s anthem “Hard in Da Paint” and since then he has given us some truly amazing original tracks and an EP.  Now the Parisian is returning to the art …
