I have a love/hate relationship with CHRISTMAS MUSIC. I hate it because it’s all sooooo cheesy. BUT I also love it because it’s all soooo cheesy. Here’s a couple of choons from DKGL featured artists that do Christmas music right.
MELLEEFRESH – JINGLE BELLZ
There isn’t another vocalist in the world of EDM with a past as colourful as MELLEEFRESH. In the 80s & 90s, she was a cartoon voice actor, giving life to characters on several hit animated TV shows. Most notably, the princess, on EWOKS, and several of the CARE BEARS. That’s right. I’m already in love with her. But there’s more. She became a well known figure amongst Toronto’s art community, due to her cake decorating talents, and her eccentric “Princessmobile”, which was a Volkswagon covered in dolls, trophies, and all sorts of other nick-nacks. During the 90s, Mel owned a club, called BUBBALICIOUS LOUNGE, and started her first record label, Gay Records. I’m not kidding, Gay Records. Mel holds kitsch value in very high regard. Her first label led to a second, PLAY RECORDS, which grew into an ELECTRO HOUSE empire, after Mel discovered a little known producer, who called himself DEADMAU5. Perhaps you’ve heard of him. This discovery led Melleefresh down a new path, as a House music vocalist, specializing in dirty sex vocals. Her knack for catchy, filthy, diva lyrics, and her cute voice have made her a sought after talent and has seen her collab with many top names in the EDM world, over the past few years.
She would seem to be the ideal candidate to take a well known Christmas anthem and inject it with some horney diva chutzpah! As you’ve probably guessed, she has done just that, in the form of a dreamy ELECTRO POP ride. What a wonderfully original versioning of JINGLE BELLZ.[soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/71711556″ iframe=”true” /]
Chicago’s TOPSIDER has perfected the art of the MEGAMASH, and this season, he has used his superpower to spread some campy holiday cheer. Throw this one on and get Eggnog tipsy![soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/69528303″ iframe=”true” /]
Eggnog is disgusting. How do y’all drank that shit?
