Rad Summer is tremendously excited to present the self-titled debut release from indie pop band Party Lines as a free download!

In 2 months with just one video and a handful of live shows, Fountain Square based indie pop band Party Lines has taken the central Indiana music scene by storm, and they’re ready to continue that ramp up with the launch of their first release on Rad Summer.  Party Lines’s self-titled EP is a killer blend of funk, synth pop, and electro house that compels the listener to shuffle their feet and sing along to the lyrics of lead singer Jerred Lowe.  Party Lines open their project with the upbeat rockers “Higher Ground” and “Hot to the Touch”, transition with “Crossfire”, and then let the project cool off with the sexy ballad “Half a Heart’ and chiller jam session of “Moonglow”.  If this project is any indicator of what we can expect from Party Lines in the future, the world has a new set of rockstars on their hands.

Party Lines is a dance rock band based out of Fountain Square in Indianapolis that falls somewhere on the sonic spectrum between Jamiroquai and Chromeo. Started as a duo between front man Jerred Lowe and producer Aaron Hogan, the band now includes up to 9 members for performances including Jerred on guitar and vocals, Aaron on guitar, David Coriaty on keyboards, Justin Madwell on bass, and Adam Mattox on drums; Party Lines frequently includes the horn section from ska legends Johnny Socko as well.

With release of K. Sabroso’s Babina Numa EP that includes remixes of Senor Oz, Caballo, and Jairo Mendez, Rad Summer deepens our exploration of tropical bass music

Continuing Rad Summer’s end of summer blitz, our fifteenth release finds us tapping Latin funk producer K. Sabroso to give us a deeper understanding of tropical bass music. K. Sabroso’s original mix of “Babina Numa” is a 108 BPM banger that follows many of the conventions of moombahton but adds its own twist on the drums and a persistent vocal chant. The rest of the EP is rounded out with remixes from Jairo Mendez and Senor Oz that maintain the 108 BPM and a remix by Caballo that jumps the tempo into 140 BPM territory. For anyone looking for auditory vacation to a remote beach party, K. Sabroso is ready to take you there.

Ay Que Rico! Que Sabroso! Sutiweyu Sandoval began his musical journey on the dance floor, studying the science of beats and breaks while earning his stripes as a b-boy. In 2009 Sandoval decided to focus his attention on music, both as a DJ and producer. Looking to his Central American heritage, Sandoval reinvented himself as K. Sabroso, developing a music style based on hip-hop breakbeats while incorporating textures from Latin American music traditions. The end result is a brand of latin funk entirely his own, and is making the rounds on dance floors worldwide. K. Sabroso has an aresenal of singles and remixes coming out soon and an artist album just around the corner, estan listos?

Filthy Disco’s 2 track Dubplate Pressure release is a massive bass music release with the moombahcore smasher “Dubplate” on one side and the epic trap anthem “Pressure” on the flip.

Rad Summer has tapped Colorado’s Filthy Disco for the label’s 14th official release. We first became acquainted with the production prowess of Filthy Disco with his remix of “Moombrah” on Lemi Vice and Knife Fight’s Knife Vice Moombahton EP Remixes, and we immediately knew that we had to have an official release from him. Quite simply, the kid is a beast. For those that loved his remix of “Moombrah”, you will become completely obsessed with the bounce and movement of “Dubplate”. “Pressure” is the young producers take on the trap craze that has taken EDM by storm with snappy 808 snares that would normally beg for a trill verse. This might be the first release for Filthy Disco on Rad Summer, but it definitely won’t be his last!

Despite Connor Corcoran aka Filthy Disco recently emerging on the EDM scene, the young Boulder, CO based DJ/producer has quickly established himself as a must hear artist. Reflecting his performance name, Filthy Disco’s productions are known for their sub heavy bass frequencies, groovy drum patterns, and complex synthesizer design; his live performances are as equally intense, packing the dance floor from beginning to end.

Indianapolis born and raised, Action Jackson has quickly established himself as one of the premier DJs in the Midwest, playing well over 200 shows in 2011. Specializing in genre bending mixes that span multiple styles of music, he is equally comfortable spinning hip-hop, house, dubstep, moombahton, indie rock, and everything in between. His productions are diverse as well, having remixed artists such as Passion Pit, Hall and Oates, and Smokey Robinson. 2011 found Action linking with emcee Oreo Jones for their collaboration “Black Fabio”, a parody of the famous model from the 80′s. In short, there’s not a crowd or party that he can’t rock including large festivals such as Forecastle, Identity Festival, and The Indianapolis 500, the largest single day sporting event in the world.
