Very Yes – Ten Ate

In Chill, Dreamy, Electronic by Jeff

I couldn’t find much info on Very Yes but I can tell you this much: I absolutely love the music he’s been making. I was hooked on his debut song “Collide” a while back, and more recently I’ve been enjoying his equally impressive follow-up, “Ten Ate”. It revolves around a series of gorgeous vocal samples that are chopped and arranged to perfection, with tight hip-hop percussion, steel drums, and clean bass lines all working overtime to push the song forward. The end product is a warm and energetic electronic tune that reinforces the notion that Very Yes‘s talent should not be overlooked. Check out “Ten Ate” below, along with a little bonus—his excellent remix of Bronze Whale’s “Patterns”.

Flume – Rushing Back (Third Culture Kid Remix)

In Chill, Electronic, Remix by Jeff

Seattle producer Third Culture Kid‘s rendition of “Rushing Back” stands out as one of the best remixes the amazing original has seen so far. Waves of rich, textured sound back Vera Blue’s haunting vocals, and a blend of heavy electronica comes crashing down in an explosive drop. I imagine putting your own spin on a track of this caliber is no easy task, but Third Culture Kid certainly rose to the occasion. Check him out on SoundCloud and stream the remix below.

Birdriot – Wanna Go (Colson XL Remix)

In Chill, Electronic, Pop, Remix by Jeff

Up and coming producers Colson XL put a hypnotic spin on Vancouver based artist Birdriot‘s new song “Wanna Go”. The original is a spacey pop/R&B tune with warbling autotuned vocals and clean production. Colson XL’s remix maintains the core elements of the song while introducing slick new percussion and synths, chopping the vocals, and speeding things up to create a flip that feels just right. It’d be cool to hear these guys work together again in the future. Check out Colson XL and Birdriot on SoundCloud for more, and stream “Wanna Go (Colson XL Remix)” below.

PatrickReza & Dalys – Strung Out

In Chill, Indie, Melancholy, Zone Out by Jeff

LA based producer PatrickReza recently released the excellent 3-song Strung Out EP and it’s been in heavy rotation for me. The whole project is really good, but “Strung Out” is the track I keep coming back to. It features softly crooned vocals surrounded by pulsing bass and minimalistic instrumentation, creating a haunting, late night vibe that’s irresistible. Stream it below and check out the full EP on SoundCloud.

Two Feet – BBY

In Blues, Electronic, Guitar, Indie, Soul by Jeff

Two Feet continues his string of recent releases with the best one yet—an uptempo and bluesy new single “BBY”. His signature reverb drenched guitar and breathy vocals are here in full force, but what sets this one apart is the driving, almost house-like percussion that ties everything together. The energetic beat ties in really well with the rest of Two Feet’s usual elements, making for a heavy hitting scorcher of a song. Check it out below and head to Two Feet’s SoundCloud for more.

Koresma – Northern Lights

In Chill, Downtempo, Dreamy, Electronic, Instrumental, Zone Out by Jeff

Koresma recently dropped the incredibly chilled out “Nothern Lights”, which is the second song from his upcoming EP North. This LA based producer is currently one of my favorite artists in the realm of downtempo instrumental music. You can tell a lot of love goes into each and every one of his songs, and “Northern Lights” is no different—it’s smooth and uplifting, with catchy guitar melodies and gliding synths constantly propelling the song towards its blissful conclusion. The EP should be coming out soon, so be sure keep an eye on Koresma’s SoundCloud. In the meantime, check out “Northern Lights” and the latest song from the EP, “New Frontier” below.

Madeon – Be Fine

In Dance, Electronic, Pop, Upbeat by Jeff

The latest single from Madeon‘s upcoming album, Good Faith, shows the French DJ and producer at his absolute best. “Be Fine” is brimming with upbeat energy—twinkling piano, skyscraping synths, and warm, catchy vocals make for an exiting listen all around. I especially love the way the choir-style samples provide such an organic contrast to the rest of the songs electronic nature. This single has me seriously looking forward to the full album—which doesn’t have an official release date yet—so here’s hoping it sees the light of day before 2019 comes to an end.

Vandelux – Lost In Common EP

In Chill, Dance, House, Indie by Jeff

With his debut EP, San Francisco based singer, songwriter, and producer Vandelux delivers a cohesive and engaging batch of songs laced with smooth house production. Between the catchy, digitized vocals in “Feel Good”, the deep and hypnotizing beat in “Live Forever”, and the twangy acoustic guitar in “Ride or Die”, this project truly highlights Vandelux’s versatility as a producer. His silky vocals are intertwined throughout the EP, adding another level of depth and providing something to latch onto for repeated listens. We first featured Vandelux way back in 2015, and it’s been amazing to hear his style mature and evolve over the years. Check out “Live Forever”—my favorite track from the EP—below, along with the full Lost In Common project on Spotify.
