MEMBA – Schools Out

In Chill, Dreamy, Electronic, Instrumental, Upbeat by Jeff

MEMBA show off their versatility with “Schools Out”—a catchy and upbeat track that’s worlds apart from their usual heavier sound. They said it’s meant to express the childhood sense of wonder that everyone is born with, which is all too easy to lose touch with as you get older. I think they nailed that feeling with this one—the bubbly production and lighthearted vibe truly make for a fun and inspiring listen. Be sure to follow this talented duo on SoundCloud and listen to “Schools Out” below.

Otherwise Fine – It’s Always Been U (Audio Aquarium Premiere)

In Chill, Dreamy, Electronic, Premiere, Uplifting by Jeff1 Comment

Introducing Otherwise Fine—a brand new electronic duo that’s poised to make major waves with their refreshingly unique sound. Their debut EP IwantU showed off the duo’s skill set with creative originals and unexpected remixes (the Biggie Smalls remix is wild), and their new song “It’s Always Been U” further drives home the point that these guys are good. “It’s Always Been U” is a vibrant collage of synths, piano, and catchy vocal chops that are woven together with tight percussion and topped off with gorgeously processed original vocals. It manages to sound energetic and chilled out at the same time, creating a feel-good vibe that had me hooked from the moment I pressed play. Be sure to follow Otherwise Fine on SoundCloud and stream “It’s Always Been U” along with their Biggie remix, “Take Notes”, below.

Manila Killa – Skin (feat. OutsideOUTSIDE)

In Chill, Dreamy, Electronic, Pop by Jeff1 Comment

Manila Killa‘s debut EP 1993 came out of nowhere and has quickly become my favorite thing to listen to right now. It’s filled with super clean and catchy production and has some great guest features too. My favorite song, “Skin”, features alternative pop/R&B/electronic group OutsideOUTSIDE and has one of the most satisfying drops I’ve heard this year–but don’t expect screeching synths and abrupt percussion—everything about this one is delightfully smooth. Listen to the 1993 EP in full and stream “Skin” below.

San Holo – Lead Me Back

In Acoustic, Chill, Dreamy, Electronic, Guitar, Uplifting by Jeff1 Comment

The evolution of San Holo‘s style has been really cool to watch. “Lead Me Back” is one of his most indie rock sounding releases to date, which certainly isn’t a bad thing—especially since the electronic stylings still have a strong presence. It’s probably not an easy combination to pull off, but San Holo does it with a natural ease. The result is a gorgeously engrossing song that blends genres and offers up something fresh and exciting.

The latest from French producer Petit Biscuit is a powerful fusion of sounds that spans multiple genres and styles. “Wide Awake” pairs lush synths and piano, thick bass lines, and somber vocals to make for a seriously impressive 3-minute electronic journey. The song makes several unexpected twists and turns—the first drop and dubstep-style cuts being the most surprising. Everything about this one is incredibly unique and perfectly executed.

Quinn XCII – Holding Hands (feat. Elohim)

In Chill, Dreamy, Electronic, Pop by Jeff1 Comment

Quinn XCII‘s new album has arrived and the very first song—a melancholic collaboration with Elohim—is a true standout. “Holding Hands” is a heart-wrenching song about moving on that features softly crooned vocals from both artists alongside warm and elegant production. It’s easily my favorite song from the Michigan artist’s latest project, but the rest of the album is certainly worth a listen as well.

The Chainsmokers – HOPE (Parker Remix)

In Bass, Dangerous, Electronic, Heavy, Pop, Remix by Jeff1 Comment

Rising producer Parker puts an ungodly heavy spin on The Chainsmokers recent single “HOPE”.

I love when remixes switch up the vibe like this without losing the essence of the original song. Check out more from the talented young producer on SoundCloud and stream the remix below.
