Inspired by Stranger Things’ most memorable character, producer skinnydip has crafted a quietly powerful beat titled “Eleven”. Layers of electric guitar create a woozy and laid back vibe, while assertive percussion drives the track forward. It’s only two minutes long, but I feel like I could listen to this on repeat for hours. Check out more of skinnydip’s work on Soundcloud and stream “Eleven” below. Read More

Autograf – Nobody Knows (ft. WYNNE)

In Chill, Deep, Electronic, Soul, Zone Out by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Dark, soulful, and subdued, Autograf‘s new song deviates far from the groups usual dance-ready sound. They’ve shown their versatility before, but “Nobody Knows” introduces a brand new side of Autograf and I’m loving it. The prominent vocals of singer WYNNE are anchored by haunting piano melodies and restrained percussion, with unconventional electronic sections materializing at the perfect times. I’d consider “Nobody Knows” a risk for Autograf, but it’s one that certainly pays off. Read More

In Beats, Chill, Electronic, Future Bass, Guitar, Instrumental, Uplifting by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

What a way to start a musical career! “Not Dead Yet” is the very first song from 19 year old producer wh?t, but it’s got the kind of unique flavor and polished execution that make it sound like something a seasoned vet would create. The song’s structure revolves around a relaxed beat and beautifully hazy guitar, which are turned on their head when the first wave of synths ease their way into the mix. It’s a really cool twist on the future bass sound, and it offers a superb introduction to wh?t. Give him a follow on Soundcloud and stream “Not Dead Yet” below. Read More

Toonorth – ..on.my.way..

In Beats, Chill, Electronic, Instrumental by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Producer Toonorth departs from his usual smoked-out style on this one, experimenting with a more direct and full sound. It works quite well, and plenty of his familiar sound still shines through. “..on.my.way..” starts strong with a funky bassline and splashy symbols, while warms layers of strings and synths are quickly added to round out the vibe. The song finishes even stronger, with a major tempo change providing a rather trippy outro. Check out more from Toonorth on Soundcloud and stream “..on.my.way..” below. Read More
