PINES – Speak

In Bass, Beats, Chill, Dance, Deep, Dreamy, Electronic, Zone Out by J Freshwater2 Comments

Rising Australian electronic duo PINES have been quietly releasing some insanely good music lately. Their latest song “Speak” is a smooth, trance inducing dance track that features sultry vocals, heavenly pads, and a crisp, thumping beat to tie it all together. PINES‘ laid back and accessible style sometimes reminds me of Odesza, which is obviously high praise, and I fully expect these guys to blow up in the future. Check out the rest of their work on SoundCloud and stream “Speak” below.

Jauz & Kiiara – Diamonds

In Collaboration, Electronic, Pop by J Freshwater1 Comment

Ignore the hate, the new Jauz album is fire. The Wise and The Wicked is an ambitious 23 songs long, and while they’re not all winners, the renowned EDM producer delivers a ferocious album full of bangers. My favorite is his collaboration with pop songstress Kiiara. “Diamonds” pairs Kiiara’s breathy vocals with bouncing bass and a slick beat. Give it a minute and you’ll be hooked like me.
