Song: Tunnels and Planes Artist: Nick Leng We recently went head over heels for Nick Leng’s “Leaves”, so another beautiful piece couldn’t come soon enough. Today is that day. “Tunnels and Planes” is an instrumental affair that feels like strolling though a warm spring shower. It’s soothing, lush, and sure to have you nodding you head.
Song: Diamonds Artist: MONAKR Brand new tune from a brand new band! MONAKR‘s debut track “Diamond” is a slice of feel-good indie-pop perfection. I’m in love with the sparkling 80’s synths and chopped up supporting vocals, but the chorus is what’ll get stuck in your head for days.
Song: I Luv You Artist: Demo Taped Just in time for Valentine’s Day, 17 year old ATLian demo taped lets loose “I Luv You” from his upcoming EP. Here’s a description straight from the man himself: Effervescent Electronic Soul enhanced by soft vocals to emulate the feeling of love. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
Song: Bath House Artist: Tobias Chillingly beautiful piano rises above a thick layer of static and reverb drenched everything, then makes way for the perfect Lil’ Keke sample. This song is amazingly well done. My new personal favorite.
Song: Better Artist: CloZee CloZee’s new song “Better” isn’t just a song, it’s a cinematic soundscape. From the moment of the first chime I knew I was in for something pretty special. The song starts slowly and builds quickly, combining all sorts of lush layers and samples into an epic climax before descending back to melancholic baseline.
Song: Turn It Around Artist: Conrank Conrank from DIEHIGH Records is due to release an EP titled NOT WITHOUT very very soon. With “Turn It Around”, unexpected vocals give way to the heavy buzzing bass I’ve come to expect from Conrank. The results are killer. I can’t wait to hear the full EP after getting this first taste.
Song: We Belong ft. Katie Herzig (ODESZA Remix) Artist: RAC ODESZA had one of the best albums of 2014 and I’m thrilled that their musical output hasn’t let up since it’s release. Here they remix fellow EDM heavyweight RAC‘s “We Belong”. It’s sparkling and bouncy– a feel-good fusion of electronic, indie and pop.
Song: PaNic Love Artist: Skamp Song: Wasted Love Artist: Skamp I just found out about this guy Skamp and I already can’t get enough. It’s impossible not to nod along to the Adele sampling “Panic”, and his chilling take on ZHU’s “Faded” is simple and effective—one of the best remixes of the song I’ve heard.
Song: A Song For You Artist: Haliia I love when an artist has the ability to transform the way you’re feeling with their music. Future R&B/electronic duo Haliia achieve it to great effect with their new track “A Song For You”. It’s subdued and melancholic, with crooning vocals reminiscent of the Gorillaz’ Damon Albarn. Enjoy.
Song: Wifey Riddim Artist: OZZIE As a longtime fan of OZZIE, I’m proud to premier one of my favorite tracks from his latest release, UNTITLED. “Wifey Riddim” stands out as the most laid back instrumental in the collection, smoothly gliding along with an infectious acoustic guitar riff and an enchantingly pitched vocal sample. Check out the rest of UNTITLED after …
