Timeflies + Jumbo Alum = Hit

Continuing their reign of college airwaves and party hits, Timeflies recently delivered their second album to date, Under the Influence. The album is a six-track mixtape that samples artists like The Wanted and Adele in classic party songs like ‘Glad You Came’ and surprisingly touching ones like ‘Someone Like You.’ But the biggest treat for Jumbo listeners is their track ‘The Beginning,’ in which the boys sample the insanely talented Tara Vaughan’s, A10, ‘Better Versions.’ Recognize the voice? Then you probably heard Tara on the hill singing for Tufts SQ!

Support both Jumbo artists by downloading the mixtape here. For more on Timeflies, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.

For Your Entrepreneurial Needs

If you’re ever in need of a fun entrepreneurial perspective with a Jumbo spin or an alumni role model, look no further: Tufts Entrepreneurs Society has just launched their first blog! The blog delivers a mix of information from articles to media from their meetings and activities. In their latest post, they honor the Tufts band Timeflies, while comparing the band to a start-up:

Music has always been an entrepreneurial experience. Musicians start with nothing, no sound, no template and create elaborate tones and melodies. Many bands and groups have come from Tufts but one of the latest we’d like to feature, on Startup Beats, is Timeflies. At Tufts Cal Shapiro and Rob Resnick started a group called Timeflies. Before and while at Tufts both Cal and Rob (Rez) worked with many bands and technology making music. Rob was Music and Philosophy major and Cal a Music major with a minor in Entrepreneurship. In addition to talent, bootstrapping and a unique branding tool lead to viral adoption of Timeflies.

iTribute

Tufts alums Rob and Cal from Timeflies are at it again, this time devoting their weekly Timeflies Tuesday feature to a tribute for Steve Jobs:

This week, rather than our usual freestyle, we wanted to take the time to put something together that was more serious to show respect for an innovator who has been such a big part of our lives. … All of this was shot on an iPad 2 and edited using iMovie, recorded, mixed, and mastered on an iMac. The beat was made using samples from OSX and iOS – everything on a Tuesday.

Check out the lyrics, download the MP3 and read some great coverage from The Next Web. And follow Timeflies on Twitter for all the latest songs and news.
