Sapient Dream – Slushii

July 27, 2016

Here’s a bit of calm for your week. Slushii starts this song minimal, a staccato treble setting the stage before dropping a bit of a trap rhythm. Then a pitched up vocal swoops in, singing ambient soaring notes. It’s a moment of peace, a relaxed song that invites you to let go for the moment and take a deep breath before continuing on. Enjoy it.

Safe Till Tomorrow (feat. Angelika Vee) [Lash Remix] – Morgan Page

July 15, 2016

Lash

Lash took Morgan Page’s rather beautiful, but fairly subdued, song “Safe Till Tomorrow,” and turned it into an energetic track, with a strong house beat peppered with syncopation from the future house tenor synth and led by a soulful chopped-and-screwed vocal sample. It starts out quiet, with leashed power growling beneath a sweet exterior, but drops into frenetic energy with the hook. While the song is beautiful, it holds a large amount of tension. This song nails the frantic energy of dancing away your cares, but knowing in the back of your head that tomorrow, they’ll still need to be dealt with. Enjoy the song and enjoy the weekend!

Close ft. Molly Ann – IZECOLD

May 20, 2016

IZECOLD

Starting out energetic but quiet, IZECOLD quickly gets this song bumping with the signature tenor synths of future house. This reassures the listener that this is a dance tune before the vocals are introduced and the beat drops briefly. Unlike many future house tunes, the instrumental hook of “Close” is in the treble section, while the future house synths are more of an accompaniment. It’s a good sound and a fun track.

So Bad (EDWYNN x TIKAL X Spirix Remix) – Brandon Skeie

May 13, 2016

Brandon Skeie

EDWYN X TIKAL and Spirix gave this emotional track a powerful new instrumental hook to match the drama of the vocals. Chopping up and sampling the word “you” adds weight to the longing in the song while the synths swell and the trap beat joins to add energy. Give it a listen and enjoy it!

Never Forget You (Shoolz Remix) – Zara Larsson & MNEK

May 4, 2016

Zara Larsson

Shoolz builds this track steadily, starting with vocals and simple synth lines before eventually breaking into rippling future synths along with soaring synths reminiscent of a wailing electric guitar. It’s a strong song, one that keeps its forward momentum even during the brief moments that it drops its driving percussion to highlight vocals. These vocals may be my only complaint with this song, their sound quality quiet and full of reverb. Perhaps this was the cost of getting the vocals out of the original track. If so, it was worth it. This song is stellar and well worth a listen. Enjoy!

Touch Ft. Madi (DLMT Remix) – KSHMR And Felix Snow

April 22, 2016

DLMT

Ready for a bit of a weekend, folks? Allow DLMT  to snare you and push you into the mood for dancing. From the dramatic house opening to its conclusive finish, this track keeps the listener engaged. When the insistent rhythm of the intro drops, the hushed vocals sound urgent, calling the listener closer and hurrying them forward to the drop. When that drops, it’s powerful and bouncy, not in a cheerful way but deep and resonant enough to be more manic and fey, drawing you into the dance and the dark. DLMT took a track  from KSHMR and Felix Snow that was part trap, part electro, part twerk and turned it into a dark deep house track with an incredible new hook. It’s worth several listens and several weekends.
