Premiere: Flume - Hyperreal (Laced Rework)


What happens when Flume's "Hyperreal" goes techno/trap? Producer Laced has the answer with his brand new rework and it's unlike anything you've heard before. 

Keeping the sexy bounce vibe from the original, the rework has resulted in making "Hyperreal" more upbeat, while giving it a refreshing and experimental touch. This becomes particularly evident during the buildups and the drops, where the vibe gets incredibly deep and intense sounding. The combination of techno and trap feels dark at first, but in combination with the vocal from Kuc?ka it's actually very well balanced overall. 

Laced is all about acknowledging the existence of difference genres and mediums (unlike the "no genre" movement" that has been around for a while now) and that strategy pays off here, where "Hyperreal" gets a well deserved overhaul with a well defined sound.

Out Of Love (Sean Turk Remix)


East Coast meets West Coast when NYC based Sean Turk adds his bedroom bass sound to Two Friends' single "Out Of Love" feat. Cosmos & Creature. The result? A wonderful, dreamy and atmospheric sound design transforms "Out Of Love" to a relaxing chillout/easy listening club track that is just as likeable as the original. I'm personally enjoying the new melody on the drop, which brings some legendary late night vibes to the track.

Chicago


Windy City based Win & Woo and Bryce Fox put their heads together for this new single appropriately called "Chicago". The track is a cool hybrid between pop and easy listening club music and with it's melancholic vibes, it doesn't take long until the tune settles as a proper earworm. I love that they made an anthem for their hometown and it's probably going to become a fan favourite at their shows, if it isn't already. Bryce Fox is also doing an excellent job on the vocal, adding to the nice flow of the bass driven instrumental. 

"Chicago" is out now and available via most major platforms. Give it a spin or check out the link below for alternatives.

Some Of Them (Lifelike remix)


Paris based producer and DJ Lifelike takes you back to the 80s with his incredibly dope remix for Amtrac's "Some of Them" feat. MELI. The synths used here remind me a lot of those used in Animotion's "Obsession" and add a tremendous retro vibe. For a 2017 release Lifelike's remix sounds damn oldschool, but that is also what makes it so fresh at the same time. With MELI's vocal on top, it's like stepping into a time machine, coming out the other end wearing pastel coloured clothes and shoulder pads. Listen to this while riding your white Lamborghini Countach LP500, wearing aviator shades.

Sleepyhead




One of the first tracks I ever found on Hype Machine was "Sleepyhead" by Passion Pit and that also marked a point in time where my own music taste shifted drastically. Now Two Friends are picking up this piece of personal nostalgia, remixing "Sleepyhead" and adding their own style to it. As I've said before, I am usually incredibly critical towards remixes or covers of what I consider a "classic", but the L.A based duo has done it again, giving me the chance to relive my high school days in the summer of 2017. Can't think of a better way to kick off the weekend :)

"Sleepyhead" (Two Friends Remix) is out now and available as a free download via the link below.

Candyland


I've been posting some really smooth stuff recently, but it's Friday and time to stir things up a little!

Karma Kid x Fono recently revealed the second track called "Candyland" from their joint EP. Just as hard hitting as their first single "Allison", this new track is sure to act as a firestarter at lots of festivals this summer. The combined playfulness and energetic vibe on "Candyland" is absolutely mind blowing. In addition, an oldschool horn sample provides some on point contrast and charm to the hard hitting kick drum and modulation sounds, which helps balancing things out.

I'm thoroughly excited about this release as it really brings something new and fresh, but it's not your average piece of easy listening...just so you're warned.

Danger Love


New music from U.S. based producer Ken Loi, who recently released this piece called "Danger Love" feat. Dezi. The track stands out to me with its somewhat unusual sounding lead bass line, giving the instrumental a rather rough, but also catchy sound. Ken also has an amazing skill finding some very talented vocalists and with Dezi he has found the perfect match for "Danger Love". 

Out now on Thrive Music, you can listen to Ken Loi's new single via most major platforms. Enjoy!

Gold Angel


It's not often bands decide to do remixes, so that kind of makes this particular track a rare breed. NYC based Savoir Adore have taken on Minke's "Gold Angel" and transformed it into an indie pop marble to a track. The added atmospheric elements and fresh bass line really brings a fresh breath of air around the original vocal. Savoir Adore's additions feel subtle, but when you add them up it really makes everything different...in a brilliant way. Give it a spin below or catch the stream over on Spotify.

Waste?

I've been digging some smoother sounding music for the last few days and so I came across this exceptional single by L.A. based Michl called "Waste?". The soulful hip hop vibe on this immediately reminded me of Tom Misch's style, excl. the guitar. Everything about this track sounds harmoniously, from the melody to the sound design and perhaps most importantly...the vocal. As a listener...once you hit that play button...you're in the zone for a proper chillout session.

Simple


Smooth disco/rnb vibes coming from Chris McClenney with his remix for Joe Hertz's track "Simple" feat Jones. I really like the bounce that has been added, turning "Simple" into a very uplifting and positive sounding track. The vocal has also been worked in a way, giving it a refreshing lightness which matches the smoothness of the instrumental. Overall, a crisp piece of music, ideal for a relaxing Sunday afternoon easy listening session!

Pierce Fulton makes sure to kick off the weekend right by releasing the title track "Better Places" feat. NVDES from his forthcoming album. This new track is probably the most radio friendly he has released to date, focusing on his characteristic indie sound and a pop inspired upbeat, positive and playful vibe. The addition of kazoo sounding horns add to that sensation, making this track a proper earworm.

Difficult to Love


After releasing two EPs in rapid succession, Amtrac is back with a remix for Elderbrook's "Difficult To Love". With his characteristic sound design, the Kentucky based producer takes the best of the original and converts it into deep house pleasure...even more so than the original. The new beat adds an upbeat tempo to the track, giving it energy and club appeal. I also really like what the work on the vocal, making it sound dreamier and more atmospheric.

Lines Of The Broken




Fellow countrymen DROELOE and San Holo have joined forces and created an amazing new single called "Lines Of The Broken" feat. CUT_. Usually one or the others music style or sound design can go under in a collab like this, but I personally think that they've found a very nice equal playing ground and created something magical. I particularly pick that up when hearing DROELOE's characteristic mystical vibe, alongside San Holo's ability to create catchy melodies. CUT_ also does an excellent job wrapping her vocal around this, adding a certain fragile element to the track as well. 

"Lines Of The Broken" is out now and even available as a free download. So check the link below to pick up your own personal copy.

Love Somebody


Justin Caruso has just released his finest original single ever called "Love Somebody" feat. Chris Lee. Genre wise this release is more towards the pop genre, putting emphasise on the melody and the emotional vibe. What makes this track extra special though is that it's being released on 3LAU charity label Blume. The goal of the charity is to raise $30.000 for ACLU, who protect individuals rights under the American constitution and laws of the United States. 

So don't just listen to the track because it is awesome...make sure you listen to it an extra time for the good cause too. It's actually not that difficult to do, because "Love Somebody" is a proper earworm anyway :)

Waves


Texas based duo Bronze Whale have remixed Luna Shadows' "Waves" and it's a must listen! 

Taking the haunting and atmospheric vocal and giving it a dark and mysterious sounding backdrop really does something to the emotions of the track. Once the the vocal chopped parts of the drop takes over, the track reaches a whole other level, boosting the before mentioned sensation even more. Considering that this track is already awesome to in its original version, then it's even more impressive when someone is able to remix it out of the ball park.

Only


Being a big fan of RY X's track "Only", my expectations were set at max when coming across this cover version by U.S. based Patrick Baker. That said, shortly after hitting the play button I sat with my headphones on and my my jaw dropping in awe. With some incredible emotion, a smooth reverb on the vocal and a simple beat and guitar melody this cover fulfils the "less-is-more" paradigm to the fullest. If you were looking for a Friday banger you're in the wrong place today, but if you're here for pure bliss...then go ahead and hit that play button! Be sure to check out the video Patrick Baker released as well, right after the break.

Where R U


I'm a sucker for a solid bass line and so when I came across Kill Paris' new single "Where R U", I was left in no doubt...it's superb! The vibe on this new track is incredibly smooth, while perfectly balancing energy and more atmospheric elements. Being mostly an instrumental track it takes quite a from a producer to create something that is pleasing and can sustain interest for the listener throughout the duration of the track. Kill Paris has pulled it off though...and even more than that! Check out "Where R U" right here below or stream via Spotify.

The track carries elements from genres like hip hop, electronica and combined with a crisp melody and a tight vocal, what we have here is a winner. "Purple Feelings" has also quickly become one of my favourite original releases by Jerry Folk to date, who keeps pushing towards defining his sound design more and more.

Deva


Let's start out this new week with something different and loud! Ape Drums new single "Deva" feat. Suku might not be the ideal song to pick for your alarm clock (unless you really have trouble getting out of bed), but it's a massive dancehall fire starter that stands out with its powerful style and massive deep bass. On top of that comes Suku's vocal flow which also ensures a badass groove that will take over your soul. So if this doesn't kick a little Monday motivation into your sleepy head then I don't know what will!

Sway


"What happens if you add my electro chords + 145 BPM + Nevve's vocal?" asks Estonian producer Syn Cole on his Soundcloud profile. The answer..."This". By "this" he is referring to his new single called "Sway" and it's a melodic marvel of a track. Those of you who are familiar with Nevve's vocal know that it's bound to be good in the vocal department too. Overall the track is a nice piece of easy listening and a great comeback by Syn Cole. Hopefully we'll hear even more from him soon!

This fusion of electronica, rnb, soul and jazz that you get to enjoy here, will calm you right down...unless you're a musician, because it's also a superb track to analyse and study.

Similar to the original mix, the drop goes into a vocal chop, but it's still kept energetic and very catchy....earworm catchy!

Home In August


After releasing the beautiful indie inspired track "Life In Letters", U.S. artist Pierce Fulton returns with an awesome progressive dance tune. As a listener, "Home In August" feels like a bit of a flashback to the time when I first discovered Pierce's music. The vocal sample and sound design also brings back memories from his big hit Kuaga, which is super cool. 

It's been a while since Pierce has released something as upbeat as this, so as a fan I am more than delighted to finally get a track like this to blast out loud. The melody is energy filled, but Pierce always manages to create a balance, making this new single nice for easy listening too. 

"Home In August" is out now via Potential Fun and available via all the big platforms (see link below).
