Two cities, both alike in dignity but different in sound. Very fuckin' different. Detroit and NYC have been embroiled in a seemingly endless geographical battle of the bands since the 60's, and the war has produced some of the most epic names in the house of rock. The Stooges (Detroit) and The Ramones (NYC). Jack White and Blondie. The Four Tops and The Velvet Underground. MC5 and The New York Dolls. The list goes on. And the music is bloody incredible.
In Volume #5 of SOUND⚡WAVES, DJ Waves walks us through the decades-long battle, alternating each song between Detroit and New York City. And in the process paints an illuminating picture of the sounds of each city. Which city has the better bands? The slickest guitar riffs? The heaviest drums? The most timeless songwriting? You decide.
SOUND⚡WAVES Vol 6 | LISTEN NOW
This is not a halloween playlist. Yes, it was released in October. And yes, it's chock full of spooky tracks that'll raise the hairs on the back of yer neck. But if you're looking to practice your Thriller choreo or sing along to The Ghostbusters Theme, keep on scrolling... this is not the playlist for you.
Curated by our girl DJ Waves and packed with downright witchy vocals, guitar licks that scream like bloody murder, drums that'll get your heart pumping, Deep South front porch stomps, and a hellish overtone so palpable, so ominous, yet so fricken cool that you'll consider selling your heavenly soul to the dark side in exchange for a life of moody rock clubs, black magic voodoo and old leather jackets with all the zippers on them, late nights with questionable company, and a taste for blood and dark rum served neat.
SOUND⚡WAVES Vol 7 | LISTEN NOW
SOUND⚡WAVES Volume 7 is like nothing you've ever heard. It's deep. It's rich. It's eye opening. And it's wild. You won't understand most of it. But that's fine. Neither do we. SOUND⚡WAVES 7 is a testament to the fact that music transcends borders, languages, religions, philosophies and ideals. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, our delusion that we have some privileged position depending on where we live, where we born, are all challenged in this carefully curated, travel-inspiring compilation of rad tunes.
SOUND⚡WAVES Vol 8 | LISTEN NOW
It was mid-December. We had all spent weeks being bombarded by Band-Aid, trying not to listen to the annoying din of holiday pop in shopping malls, being driven to the point of near-madness by an endless barrage of Bublé, Carey, Bieber, Ariana and a steady, water-torture-like drip of sleigh bell samples.
When our pal DJ Waves said she wanted to curate a Christmasy playlist without any actual Christmas music on it, we were in. Here, in Volume 8 of SOUND⚡WAVES, you'll be able to enjoy tunes that stoke that festive spirit without making you want to bear claw your ears off the side of your head.
SOUND⚡WAVES Vol 9 | LISTEN NOW
Our girl DJ Waves compiled this amazing 9th volume of SOUND⚡️WAVES for all those looking to turn over a new leaf in style, for those who need a good ol’ fashioned rock n roll push to get to the end in January, but also for those who just wanna grab a stool at the bar order a double and throw up a middle finger to whole 'New Year, New You' farce.
