The OXD Mirror: Ru's Top 10 Tracks of 2014



It's that time of the year again when we look back and list our favorite tracks of the year.  Given the plethora of amazing music on the disco and house scene this year, this was no easy task. Nevertheless below is a list (in descending order) of my favorite tracks that I played while spinning at our Occupy The Disco parties here in New York. 

While it's actually the Bixel Boys remix of Kiesza's acclaimed lead single, 'Hideaway' that holds the #10 spot on my list (listen after the jump), I'd be remiss to not also include the fantastic music video that accompanied the original cut. Whether it's the rhythm that hooked you, or the chorus of ooh's and aahs, 'Hideaway's brilliance lies in it's simplicty; which is echoed in the music video. It's a refreshing to watch in a world where the opulence of Gaga and Beyoncé seem to reign.

Listen to the Bixel Boys Remix of 'Hideaway' and the rest of Ru's top 10  AFTER THE JUMP...

NEW MUSIC: To Be Frank, Pop-Op, Johanna Glaza, You Are Number Six, Dirty Dishes, Stereoshock


New Music is brought to you weekly by Deadly Music!, which covers mostly indie/alternative music as well as electronica, ambient/modern classical, pop and anything really, really good.

Most tracks are available on a Soundcloud playlist, some of them on a Spotify playlist....both of which are embedded at the end of this post.




To Be Frank: “Let It Go”

To Be Frank is a musician/producer from Suffolk, England who over the past two years has released a number of EPs and singles that verge between piano-based heartbreakers and glitchy electro pop tracks like his latest “Let It Go”.  

Taken from his debut album to be released next year the track is “a bittersweet tale of a break-up foreseen and foretold, love gone bad with a distinctly wintery feel” for fans of James Blake, Halls, Brolin and one of last year's best new artists Ryan Vail.



Pop-Op: “You Are The Eyes”

Pop-op is a brand new post punk outfit from Belfast, Northern Ireland of which no further information is available.

Shouty debut track “You Are The Eyes” is all sort of anti-establishment sloppy punk via The Fall and Parquet Floors, so fresh its not even completely mixed yet.

NASA's 'All About That Space' Parody Is Out of this World: VIDEO


Who else really wants to work at NASA now?

via the video's description:

“All About That Space” is a volunteer outreach video project created by the Pathways Interns of NASA's Johnson Space Center. It was created as a parody (to raise interest and excitement for Orion's first flight) of Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass”. The lyrics and scenes in the video have been re-imagined in order to inform the public about the amazing work going on at NASA and the Johnson Space Center.

Last week, NASA's Orion spacecraft launched a sucessful test flight from Cape Canaveral marking an important first step on the road to deep space and Mars.
