David Guetta may be seen as a mainstream pop artist, but the superstar DJ actually started as a pioneer of underground house music in France. We just got a link to an interesting trailer to the soon to be released documentary about his life and rise entitled, Nothing But The Beat. It just goes to show where things can go, and love him or hate him, Guetta has certainly opened some doors for the music we love. We are also glad to see David Morales give some insight.

Danish four-piece When Saints Go Machine are rad. The sound is just fresh; soothing yet still edgy, one could describe it as a mix of post punk, electronica, dance, and pop. Their debut album, Konkylie, released earlier this year and was recorded over the course of two years, in a remote home in the forest. The peaceful environment lent the group the ability to take meticulous care in recording this album, which is chronicled in the mini documentary above.

Definitely also take a listen to their “Church & Law” and “Add Ends” tracks on the YouTube videos after the jump.

Video: TV on the Radio – “Caffeinated Consciousness”

 

TV on The Radio’s video for “Caffeinated Consciousness” has already made us press play about twelve times. We’re not sure what’s happening, but we think that the song keeps ending before we want it to and thus, we must repeat incessantly. Or perhaps it’s that flying carpet hippie scene that makes us melt. Either way, this song and video are an all around win. As if it couldn’t get any better, the video is part of an hour long movie by TV on the Radio that was released back in April.

With the video also comes the release of remixes for “Caffeinated Consciousness” and “Will Do,” which are available exclusively on iTunes. Check out the video for “Will Do” that we posted a few months back as well!
