MP3: Ace Reporter - "Stick To" + Brooklyn Show This Saturday

Ace Set To Perform in Williamsburg, Releases Latest Single From Arcadia

The Song:

Fresh from a jam-packed show at The Delancey, Ace Reporter is on assignment again. This time the Brooklyn singer-songwriter heads to Cameo Gallery (93 North 6th Street, Williamsburg) on Saturday, May 7th for what promises to be a raucous night of rock and electro-sizzle courtesy of Ace and his all-star band. Ace Reporter hits the stage at Cameo at 9PM and is set to serve up offerings from his threesixfive project to the ever-eager crowd. Sharing the bill with Ace are friends and collaborators, Swingset Committee, whose kinetic combo of electro and energy will serve as the perfect complement to Ace Reporter's dynamic set. Tickets for the show will be available at the door for $8.

Ace Reporter is also excited to release "Stick To," the second single from his recently released Arcadia EP. Distorted organs dance with the energy of the city in "Stick To" as Ace loses himself in a Manhattan night and imbibes in both drink and think. "It's hard to say what I do" contemplates Ace, "I make plans I should stick to." The song finds its inspiration from a friend of Ace, an everyman who finds time to write poetry at night following his 9 to 5. "It's a bit insane really," says a pensive Ace. "No one pays the bills, let alone gets rich, from writing poetry (which is too bad). It's just about the purist art I can think of, and I really admire that." Ponder along with Ace and download "Stick To" today for free.

MP3: The Freeze Tag (CWL & Bisco Smith) - "The Visions (Remix)"

From Audible Treats:

MP3: The Freeze Tag (Cassettes Won't Listen & Bisco Smith) - "The Visions (EchoesAlike Remix)"

Hamster Kid EP Release Celebrated With Brand New Remix

The Song:

Back in the summer of 2010, Los Angeles producer Cassettes Won't Listen and Brooklyn emcee Bisco Smith hit the studio together in what developed into a week-long collaboration, quickly developing into a new group, The Freeze Tag, and eventually birthing the duo's concept EP, a project that deals with battling through restrictions and limitations, in art and life. Now, nearly a year later, that EP Hamster Kid is being released, aided by the artistic efforts of world renowned street artist Bishop 203 and director Mike Vidoli, along with a handful of remixes from the EP.

And to celebrate today's EP release, The Freeze Tag are giving fans one of those remixes, this one from EchoesAlike, a frequent and long-time collaborator with Bisco, who builds his electro-inspired remix around an infectious, repeating staccato synth line. "Echoes helped produce one of my first songs I ever put out, "The Basics;" I've know him for a while, 5 or 6 years," Bisc explains on the connection. "CWL and I passed out acapellas and stems to the people we have around us – our friends – and let them go where they wanted with it. I love Echoes' remix; it's upbeat and feels like it has epic movement to it, which is what "The Visions", and Hamster Kid, is about – movement."
