Vandelux – Walls

In Dance, Electronic, Soul by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Vandelux may have gotten his start making remixes, but he’s developed into far more than your average SoundCloud producer. The song writing ability and vocal delivery on his last few songs has been pretty impressive, and his latest track, “Walls,” is no exception. Agonizing lyrics strike a chord that most will find familiar, and the production is top notch as usual. I love how the sedated beat builds alongside the vocals, then explodes into an all-out electro jam. I’m not sure about you, but it caught me off guard in the best way. Check out Vandelux’s SoundCloud for more music, grab a free download of “Walls”, and stream it below.

n u a g e s – Untold

In Beats, Chill, Downtempo, Dreamy, Electronic, Instrumental, Zone Out by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

The latest from UK producer  n u a g e s  is a mesmerizing, downtempo masterpiece. This artist has an extensive portfolio of sounds, but I think this might just be my favorite song of his so far. In “Untold,” fuzzy vocal samples are layered atop steady percussion, echoing xylophone notes, and some hazy strings towards the end. All the elements build upon each other, ultimately fitting together to form a flawless slice of instrumental heaven. Head to  n u a g e s  SoundCloud for more amazing music, check out the premiere over at Stereofox, and stream “Untold” below.

LSDREAM – Tiferet

In Beats, Chill, Downtempo, Dreamy, Electronic, Instrumental, Zone Out by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Up and coming producer LSDREAM recently released his debut album Voyager and I’ve been really into it. It’s a great mix of hard-charging electronic bangers and trippy, chilled out vocal mixes. My favorite song by far is the final track of the 10-song album, which is titled “Tiferet”. Wikipedia says Tiferet is “the sixth sefira in the kabbalistic Tree of Life. It has the common association of spirituality, balance, integration, beauty, miracles, and compassion”—all very fitting descriptions for this gorgeous instrumental tune. Stream it below, check out the full album here, and be sure to follow LSDREAM on SoundCloud.

Always Never – Morgan Freeman

In Chill, R&B, Zone Out by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Toronto R&B duo Always Never are about to get in your head with their new song, “Morgan Freeman”. I don’t usually post a lot of R&B but it’s smooth as silk and I just couldn’t resist. The production on this one is spacious and chilled out, leaving plenty of room for the vocals to breathe. The vibe kinda reminds me of The Weeknd’s early work, which is pretty impressive. Check these guys out on SoundCloud and stream “Morgan Freeman” below.

MEMBA – O.D. (ft. TITUS)

In Bass, Dangerous, Electronic, Hip Hop by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

MEMBA are back with another heater! “O.D.” is a nasty rap/electronic combo featuring TITUS‘s icy flow and heavy, extraterrestrial sounding production. The grinding bass immediately commands your full attention, but it’s the bizarre drop that takes things to another level. With their last few releases, MEMBA have become one of my favorite production duos doing it right now, and I can’t wait to hear what they do next. Grab a free download of “O.D.” and stream it below.
