FIND OUT MORE ABOUT TIMEFLIES BELOW:
American music duo Timeflies consists of producer Rob “Rez” Resnick and vocalist Cal Shapiro. With Rez’s sick beats and Cal’s rapping skills, the two have been cultivating their a unique blend of electro, pop and hip-hop since 2010.
The two have used their social media prowess to create an impressive following during the band’s early days. Following the success of their late 2010 major release “All Night,” the two capitalized on the attention by regularly uploading videos of Cal performing over Rez’s beats under their YouTube account. Timeflies went on to release the album Scotch Tape a year later.
Their 2012 6-track EP One Night hit debuted on #1 on the iTunes overall charts. Currently, the duo is working to release a new album later this year.
WATCH “I CHOOSE YOU” BY TIMEFLIES BELOW:
“Dancing Queen” – Girls’ Generation
With Korean artist PSY’s recent hit “Gangnam Style,” which was unbelievably popular in North America, K-pop girl group Girls’ Generation have just released a cover of Duffy’s “Mercy.” The track was recorded a few years ago but the girls decided to re-release it to go with their upcoming album I’ve Got a Boy. You won’t understand a thing they’re singing unless you’re fluent in Korean but they throw in the words “dancing queen” here and there to grab your attention.
“Let Us Move On” – Dido ft. Kendrick Lamar
Gentle songbird Dido is no stranger to the hip-hop scene…remember Eminem’s smash hit “Stan,” which sampled Dido’s “Thank You?” Well, she’s at it again, and this time with fast-rising rapper Kendrick Lamar. The song is slow and soothing with echoing beats and Dido’s mesmerizing voice carrying us on the journey. Then Lamar jumps in and brings up the tempo and Dido finishes up. It’s an honest, touching track and definitely brings back my love for Dido’s music.
“One Night” – Timeflies
Consisting of one part smooth vocals by Cal, one part wild electro/dubstep producer Rez and all parts tonally sexy men, Timeflies have all the makings for a successful duo. The video for their latest single “One Night” is either going to make you fall in love with them or get super jealous of the endless streams of girls that seem to be constantly surrounding them. For me, it was both. Cal’s silky vocals combined with Rez’s EDM beats complement each other perfectly and is a refreshing take on the manufactured dance music that seems to be monopolizing the charts lately. If you want to hear more from Timeflies, every Tuesday they release a “Timeflies Tuesday” video on You Tube to keep their fans up to date. Their EP One Night is out now.
“Sorry” – T.I. ft. Andre 3000
T.I. and former OutKast member Andre 3000 finally released their highly anticipated collaboration “Sorry.” AND it’s produced by the one and only Jazze Pha, so you know it’s going to be good. A melodic piano anchors the track while T.I. and Andre spit their perfected rhymes. While T.I. uses the track as the ultimate “sorry not sorry,” going on about how successful he is, Andre goes a little deeper, rapping about his regrets and what is actually is sorry for. Ahh… I see what you did there boys…Check out the track and pick up T.I.’s eighth album Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, out Dec. 18.
