Freeze Time (Kenway & WildVibes Remix) – Manse Feat. Alice Berg

June 16, 2016

Kenway

I’ve been incredibly busy in the last few weeks and I will continue to be for the next few weeks. But I hope to have gotten back to my normal posting schedule by the second week of July. In the meantime, here’s a gorgeous house anthem that Kenway and WildVibes made together in this remix. Alice Berg’s sweet vocals ride the instrumental like a wave, bringing vulnerability and hope and wonder with it. The instrumental hook is a tweaked version of the original that gets rid of some of the syncopation by adding notes, turning a bouncing, implied tune into a decisive, declarative tune, with the rhythm of a trotting horse. It’s a significant change to the tune but it’s done with surgical precision, leaving the bones of the song in place, still clearly recognizable. Enjoy it!

River – Oh Be Clever

June 1, 2016

Oh Be Clever

If you’re a fan of Halsey, you should give Oh Be Clever a listen. Their song “River” has all of the high drama you may expect from that intro. Gorgeous vocals paint an incredible soundscape: imperious, passionate, and powerful. It’s a song about pain, about not having it all together, about being broken, but seeing yourself as wonderful in the mirror of someone’s loving eyes, about hoping that is enough. It’s a darkly beautiful song and worth several listens. Enjoy.

BONUS: Like that track? Check out their latest original track, “Love You Now.” By featuring a stuttering drum beat, the song seem almost nervous, simulating a skipped heartbeat, a flutter in a stomach. Yet the lyrics seem confident, those same beautiful vocals from the previous track crooning a song offering love and protection. Check it out!
