Big day for Blackbird Blackbird! KCRW are giving away ‘Hold On’ as their Today’s Top Tune. It’s available as a free download for 24 hours here. Impose Magazine are premiering the Phages remix of ‘There Is Nowhere’ here.

Here’s a blurb from each, check out the tunes below and pre-order ‘Tangerine Sky’ coming on June 3rd.

Impose: Back in February, Bay Area songwriter/producer Blackbird Blackbird (real name Mikey Maramag) released the spaced-out R&B jam “There is Nowhere,” the first single from his upcoming album Tangerine Sky, out June 3 on Om Records. Though Maramag reportedly played drums in a hardcore band for six years, the track incorporated wispy falsetto and sensitive lyrics (“I’ve given up everything/ there is nowhere I’d rather be”) that would sound at home in the company of fellow indie crooners Active Child and How to Dress Well. (READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE).

KCRW: Blackbird Blackbird is the moniker of San Francisco-based wünderkind Mikey Maramag. He conjures a dreamy electro-pop ambience in his music, but things heat up on Today’s Top Tune, a B-side called “Hold On.” (CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE SONG)

To celebrate Om’s 100,000 likes on Facebook, I thought it would be fun to go back through the catalog and pick out some of my favorites. New school and old school fans will enjoy this ride through the history.

1) Body Language ‘Well Absolutely’ (Shiny Objects Remix) – first time ever available for download. This one was released exclusively for streaming only on Spotify. You may have heard it on Sirius XM Chill b/c it’s been in their rotation.

2) Blackbird Blackbird ‘Hold On’ – the b-side on the ‘There Is Nowhere’ single. We love the ambient vibe on this one. It’s also a favorite on Sirius XM Chill and on KCRW.

3) Sleight of Hands ‘Sometimes’ – SF duo Phil Collis (Bachelors of Science) and DJ M3 combine forces to create some heavy underground house music. Be sure to seek out the Psychemagik mix of this one, it’s getting lots of airplay on KCRW ‘Metropolis’.

4) Click Click & Upstroke ‘Barricade’ – Berlin’s Click Click teams up with Russian Upstroke to create this down and dirty b side to the stunning ‘Everything’ single on Om’s sister imprint Smoke N’ Mirrors. We love how this one builds and rolls with the bass.

5) Mark Farina ‘Life’ – ah the Mushroom Jazz man himself delivers an original tune taken from his stellar 6th volume of the series. Head nod heavy, slightly weird, and just damn great.

6) The Jazzual Suspects ‘Ba Dada’ – another mysterious moniker of the most recorded artist in Om Records history, Mr. Charlie 6’8" Tate! If you dig this one, be sure to check out his other offerings from King Kooba, Colossus, Boswick Gates, Alta Plana and Grand Synthe.

7) People Under the Stairs ‘80 Blocks from Silverlake’ – LA’s finest deliver another tribute to the city of angels taken from the ‘Carried Away’ LP. Listen for the name check at the 2:00 mark. :)

8) Afro-Mystik ‘Shoplift the Future’ – Om hip-hop from 1999 feat. the homie Azeem. You may have missed this one if you’re on the new school side. I highly recommend going back for more of the Future Tropic bizness from Om founder Christopher J. Smith and his funky afro Brazilian moniker.

9) Ming & FS ‘Madhattan Bound’ – an Om classic! When this came out in 1998, it was way ahead of its time. A favorite of b-boys and bassheads the world over. Be sure to check out the video.

10) Bassnectar ‘Bomb the Blocks’ – ah, one of my favorites and a perfect closer to the session. Available on vinyl if you can find it. Make sure you check out the video, you will like!

Hope you enjoyed the session! Thank you for liking what we’re doing, your support means the world to us.

Much love Omies,
Gunnar Hissam / Om Records

Haunting guitar and sparse drum kicks build to a harmonious vocal crescendo of Blackbird Blackbird’s Mikey Maramag and DWNTWN’s Jamie Leffler. Pure goose bump inducing magic takes the melancholic beauty of the original to even higher heights. Props go out to DWNTWN producer Robert Cepeda for delivering exactly what a good remix is supposed to do!

“Were it to be examined by scientists, they’d probably conclude that it’s equal part velvet and lasers. We are not scientists, but we can tell you this: it hails from the Brooklyn quartet’s September 18 EP, Grammar, and if you can keep a grip on your noggin whilst listening, you’re doing it wrong.” -SPIN

“Brooklyn dance-pop act Body Language make music practically designed for remixes -PITCHFORK

“Sunny and buzzing!” –FADER

“What else would you expect from a group that’s been praised by everyone and their nanas?” -MTV IGGY

“Body Language are in the same ballpark, quality-wise, as, respectively, early Madonna, the disco label Prelude’s 1982 output, and CSS doing an impression of Dr Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band. That is some ballpark. It is possibly the greatest ballpark there is.” -THE GUARDIAN UK

“Body Language may traverse an impressive range of styles, but the group has only one clear motive: to move bodies on the dance floor.” –NPR

“Listen to ‘Lose my Head’ and see for yourself if the suede-lined synths and cosmic vocals aren’t seductive enough to have you pressing ‘play’ more than once.” –EARMILK

“Whatever you want to call it, this is undeniably sexy…The incredibly detailed production shows the band at their tightest and most polished.” –AFROPUNK

The Swedish synth-pop duo Niki & the Dove takes “The First” off of Brooklyn quartet Body Language’s upcoming album and puts it through a dreamy remix machine: layers of soft pads create an icy mood in which whispery vocals are pitched and glitched. The crooning sample of “girl, you think you’re made of stone / but you’re made of glass” adds extra tenderness to this exquisite remix.

The magic behind this Body Language / Niki & the Dove collab goes way deeper than just a remix: the two synth-pop bands first crossed paths in Austin during SXSW, where they shared a bill. They all instantly clicked and insisted on keeping in touch. Later in the year, when Niki & The Dove came to New York for a show, Ian (the drummer from Body Language) joined the duo to play percussion in their live set. The bromance continued to grow thereafter, and appreciation for each others’ music naturally led to them to remix each other. Then? “Then everyone lived happily ever after,” says Grant of Body Language. And after hearing the fruit of their remix labors, one has no choice but to agree.

Body Language is giving this remix away for free as an exciting first-taste of what they’ve got in store for us this year. The original version of “The First” will be featured on Body Language’s second full-length album, Grammar, slated for release in Summer 2013 on Lavish Habits.

J Boogie steps into a new realm with an exclusive edit of Little Dragon’s song “Crystalfilm”.

Blurring the lines between deep house, moombahsoul and techno, his version bumps along at 111 BPM with sexy percussive accents, big boom toms, and a Detroit 909 feel. Already getting love from DJs like Anthony Valadez, Jeremy Sole, Sabo, Marques Wyatt & DJ Theory. Enjoy!
