Vanessa’s Top 10 of 2012

by Vanessa - January 3, 2013

Being the procrastinator that I am (and hating the task of limiting the year’s gems to 10), I’m one of the last to compile a Top 10 list. It is likely due to this fact that I am left with no choice but to not repeat previous titles from the other Top 10 lists, as […]

Brian’s Top 10 of 2012

by Brian - January 1, 2013

2012 is over, and narrowing down my favorite tracks of the past year is an ambiguous task. Do I just pick my top 10 most played? Or do I try to pick apart what songs defined the year for me? Maybe a mix of both is more appropriate. 2012, for me, has been defined largely […]

Chelsea’s Top 10 of 2012

by chelsea - January 1, 2013

2013 is rapidly approaching, and I am thankful that The Kollection and all of its fans have stuck with us through another awesome year. This past year was a great year for music, and I have no doubts that 2013 will be just as great. During my upcoming semester abroad, I will make an attempt […]

The Finals Playlist: 2012

by Brian - December 6, 2012

It’s finals season and I’ve spent a good 24 of the last 48 hours studying and taking tests – I suspect many of you can relate. I finally got a break today to put together this finals playlist that everyone – yes, everyone – can enjoy. The attached Soundcloud set features 60 of the 80+ […]

Solitaire – The Two Friends (Acoustic) [Video]

by nicolas - October 10, 2012

Well this is a different side to The Two Friends, and I must say that I quite enjoy it. With their normal genre being electro, this acoustic cover of their 5-month old original “Solitaire” is certainly refreshing. Retaining the vocals of Katie Pearlman, The Two Friends creates an atmosphere of reflection and thought. Highlighted by […]

See Youth – The Hood Internet

by Vanessa - May 29, 2012

And again, my favorite mash artists create a mash/blend that sneaks in by appearing as an original on the surface. Usher’s plenty sexual “Lemme See” (featuring Rick Ross) single serves as the vocal, while Santigold’s hit “Desperate Youth” provides the perfectly-plucked instrumental, creating an overall sense of constant anticipation. Prepare for the weekend early and […]

Amazing – Jay Fresh Video

by Brian - November 17, 2011

Love the song, I love the video – Amazing by Jay Fresh is a winner in my books. The video is super laid back, dreamy, and takes me back to younger days. The story is great, and Jay brings an awesome delivery to this Pretty Lights instrumental. Take a peek and download for free if […]

Good Morning (The Kickdrums Remix) – Kanye West Ft. Big Sean

by Vanessa - November 17, 2011

Yes this is a throwback, but it’s a damn good one that we neglected on the K. Nearly two years ago, Kanye dropped “Good Morning” – a legit track with a minimalist beat. Here, The Kickdrums insert a Grateful Dead sample for the instrumental. Old-school ‘Ye fans might highly disagree, but I prefer this instrumental […]
