[Tech House] Bleu Clair & Jargen – Aura

Bleu Clair has always managed to be a unique force in the realm of house music. His catalog is more than strong, and while he’s maintained a signature that’s been flexed and stretched throughout his releases, his latest song “Aura” with Jargen is one of his most different.

The tech house inspired original has a ton of old school flare that makes this feel like a timeless record. It’s fun, it’s bustling and it follows up nicely from his previous single “Funk Accelerator” that shared a somewhat similar tone. Overall it’s another impressive single from Bleu Clair!

[Rock/Alternative] Little Dume – Lose My Head

In the age of singles, it’s always nice when a song is leading somewhere. With Little Dume‘s latest “Lose My Head” we not only get a killer tune, but this marks the march towards their debut album that is due out in 2023. This means – much more music is on its way in the coming months, but let’s keep the focus on “Lose My Head” for now!

The Malibu band’s fresh original is an exciting upbeat jam whose infectious energy takes hold of you right from the get-go. The instrumentation is just magical and lead singer David Frank‘s performance is electric. Little Dume keeps a nice groove and energy throughout the whole song, but manage to offer up a dynamic ride that ebbs and flows beautifully from start to finish. Definitely a worthwhile add to your Summer playlists!

[House] Chris Costello – We Could Be Together EP

Maybe we’re not as in the progressive house scene as we once were – but LA producer Chris Costello has us back in the mix thanks to his debut EP We Could Be Together. The five track EP pays homage to what Chris describes as the “golden era of EDM” with its uplifting energetic sound.

One of the things that sticks out on this EP is that there are vocals on all of the songs, giving them strong accessibility that Chris hammers home with his inviting melodies and crisp production. His style transforms throughout the project, not simply sticking to the archetypal “progressive” sound which gives the EP a dynamic sensibility. Favorites including “Hope You Know” and “Nothing Can Stop Us Now” but the entire EP is solid through and through.
