Slushii – I’ll Be There

In Beats, Chill, Electronic by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Slushii is known for his high-energy EDM and dubstep music, so “I’ll Be There” comes as a bit of a surprise. It’s the second to last song on his newly released Out Of Light album, and unlike the majority of his work, it’s just about as chilled out as it gets. Rich piano melodies and soothing pads are tied together with a perfectly simple drum pattern, and it’s all complimented by playful chimes and vocals. I’m a big fan of Slushii’s usual sound, but this song shows a different side of the enigmatic producer and I’m loving it. Check out the full album on SoundCloud and stream “I’ll Be There” below.

SwuM. – Sizzurp

In Beats, Chill, Instrumental, Remix, Upbeat by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

SwuM. is a producer with a knack for adding wildly unique spins to some of the most popular hip-hop tracks around. His latest beat samples the chorus from Three 6 Mafia’s classic ode to codeine, “Sippin on Some Syrup” and backs it with layers of beautiful strings and vocals borrowed from Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes soulful old song “You Know How to Make Me Feel”. The resulting track is classy as hell, and catchy enough to warrant throwing it on repeat. Read More

Sal Dulu – Antasma

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

Never heard of Sal Dulu? I hadn’t either before stumbling upon his wild new song “Antasma”. According to SoundCloud, Sal Dulu is a producer from Dublin—but it’d be tough to tell from the sound of this tune alone. “Antasma” has a laid back, tropical tone that’s established with tight drum patterns, jazzy guitar riffs, and an array of soulful vocal samples. It pretty much won me over as soon as the steel drums came in, but the unexpected barrage of electro synths threw me head over heels. Follow Sal Dulu on SoundCloud and stay tuned for more… we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this guy. Read More

Leon Lour – Oceans (Loosid Remix)

It’s the creative little details that make Loosid‘s work so special. His latest release is a remix of London-based artist Leon Lour‘s “Oceans”, which originally featured gripping vocals and a backdrop of epic production. Loosid’s remix bumps up the tempo and introduces some killer flute work, while also incorporating an unorthodox mix of electronic elements. Crisp percussion, finely diced vocals, and perfectly placed bass growls transform this song into something completely out of the ordinary, while still maintaining the powerful appeal of the original track.
