You know that dark progressive synth track that opens the Netflix show Strangers Things? Yea, you know the one. Anyway, though that song was written by dudes from S U R V I V E, their music is very similar to electronic producer Com Truise. So much in fact that I thought it was Com Truise who produced the music for the show. Anyway, if you love '80s synth textures that soar into poppy melodious bliss before plunging into haunting, dark corridors, you’re not going to want to miss this dude.

The first time I heard Tame Impala’s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards,” I knew that I had greatly underestimated this band that I had previously disregarded as basic, hipster trash. Listening to more of the Australian frontman Kevin Parker’s sounds, I knew that this band was an important asset to the indie music world as a whole. If you’re unfamiliar with their tunes, Tame Impala writes pop music for indie kids essentially. Warm textures with synth pop tones punctuate his tracks as Parker’s honey-tenor vocals pull listeners through swirling landscapes of kaleidoscopic experiences.

When Float Fest announced that Snoop Dogg was headlining, we through deuces to the gods of weed and bumped “Gin And Juice” in the office ‘til, well, the song was over. Since 1993, the rapper and pop culture icon has released thirteen albums (his first one being Doggystyle, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and sold over 800,000 copies in the first week – damn), collaborated with pretty much anyone who’s worth collaborating with, and arguably taught us all how to smoke weed.
