Interlude (PRFFTT & Svyable Remix)

After what may have been the craziest weekend in the history of weekends, we think it’s time to take things down a notch and collect ourselves since Coachella did us all dirty – literally and figuratively speaking. Now that we are back to the Monday grind, we thought it would be nice to give your ears something incredibly soothing to vibe to for the rest of the day by up and comers, PRFFTT & Svyable.

PRFFTT & Svyable are no strangers to the remix world; whether it be Blink-182 or Taylor Swift, these two know how to take a song and give it an entirely different meaning all while making you want to dance for hours on end. Today, they have decided to bring out a different, more emotive side of their production with a stunning rendition of “Interlude” by London Grammar. What is wonderful about this remix is that it’s not what you are expecting, and by that we mean it’s not dance music.

Right from the start, we transcend into an ethereal state of euphoria. The harmonious harp and soft piano melodies delicately lead up to a percussion of blissful beats and serendipitous synths that are overwhelming to the senses. PRFFTT & Svyable take this song and add a new element of life to it to which the sequences of notes make us that much more musically satisfied. These two flawlessly use Hannah Reid‘s vocals, which progress from mild to intense as the lyrics build with power and depth. It’s almost as if this song was recorded in the BBC 1 Live Radio studio, because it does not sound like a couple of computers put this together.

This remix of “Interlude” is undeniably going to change the game for producers out there because  much of our generation has seemed to have forgotten the raw beauty of how instruments sound. We have been in need of something new, something organic, and something that doesn’t revolve around a ‘drop’ – and this, ninjas, is what we’ve desperately waiting for.

So if you’re taking this day off to recover from Coachella or just from going too hard over the weekend, then this remix is the ultimate cure for all of the aches and pains. Let this masterpiece consume you for the next 4 minutes and be sure to keep PRFFTT & Svyable on your radars next time around because their eclecticism is about to change up the game. Also – did we mention it’s a free download?! Get your feel on today.

[Deep/Tropical House] London Grammar – Darling Are You Gonna Leave Me (LCAW Remix)

London Grammar
Darling Are You Gonna Leave Me (LCAW Remix)

It’s been almost exactly a year since 19-year-old Munich, Germany-based producer LCAW broke onto the scene with his enormously popular remix of “Run” by Daughter–currently with well over half of a million plays on Soundcloud. And what Germany may lack in terms of warm latitude, there seems to be no effect on his knack for blanketing everything he touches with a layer of smooth, warm, summery vibes.

This time, LCAW’s unveiled his take on London Grammar’s “Darling Are You Gonna Leave Me.” The song has a beautifully harmonious pairing: the vocals of London Grammar’s front-lady, Hannah Reid, immediately bring to mind a more melancholic Florence Welch, intensified by yearning lyrics that ruminate over a fleeting love. LCAW reinterprets the sound, making it a bit more upbeat, pulsing with glimmers of hopeful reminiscence.

There’s no reason this one shouldn’t make it into your favorite summer playlists–after all, it’s up for a free download over on LCAW’s Facebook page. Like the lyrical motif “I’m still holding onto your waistband” sprinkled throughout the song, here’s to hanging on tightly to the relaxed vibe LCAW imparts, like that last bit of lingering warmth on the sand, long after the sun’s already dipped below the horizon.

[Electronic] London Grammar – Wasting My Young Years (Sound Remedy Remix)

Sound Remedy
Wasting My Young Years (Sound Remedy Remix)

“Maybe I’m wasting my young years…”

The tantalizing and thoughtful lyrics of London Grammar’s lead vocalist Hannah come rushing out at :14 of Sound Remedy’s remix of LG’s “Wasting My young Years”. Such a beautiful song originally, Sound Remedy takes the song to a different level of music, adding in strong violins to begin the song followed by soothing piano and finally, drums to electronic melodies to elevate the track. The lyrics of this song touch on what many people wonder, are we just wasting our young lives doing what we have always done or is it the fear that keeps us going back to what we know and what is safe? Sound Remedy uses his electronic beats to turn this song into an almost adventure, leading the listener from questioning to dancing back to questioning the waste of young years. It is not many times that I use beautiful to describe an electronic piece, but Sound Remedy truly finds the beauty in this remix, playing to the feeling and lyrics of the song with a vengeance.

[Alternative] London Grammar – Feelings

London Grammar

We haven’t exactly been shy about our “Feelings” regarding London Grammar‘s emergence this year. We’ve already lost track of how many gems the UK collective has bestowed upon us this far, but we do know that they’re presently batting 1.00 (and that’s without the help of PED’s, mind you). “Feelings” is a serene number that seems perfect for those breezy summer afternoons. Don’t let the quaint guitar strums at the beginning fool you however, because once Hannah Reid‘s enthralling vocals seize control of the song, they never let go. The group currently has us itching to hear their ironically titled debut album, If You Wait, due for release next month on September 9th.

[NEW] London Grammar – Strong

London Grammar

“Strong” is exactly the word I’d use to describe every one of London Grammar‘s releases. As one of the best acts to emerge over the past year, London Grammar has consistently impressed us with each and every beautiful song they’ve blessed us our ears with. Compared with their previous efforts, “Strong” seems to scale things back a bit, while still allowing lead singer Hannah Reid‘s vocals to shine. Get ready to embark on yet another emotional voyage with London Grammar when their album finally drops later this year. However, you’ll be able to get ahold of this single on September 1st.

[Indie] London Grammar – Wasting My Young Years

London Grammar
Wasting My Young Years

UK trio London Grammar continue to impress with each and every release. Like their previous two singles, “Wasting My Young Years” is tranquil yet piercing, with a build up that forces the hairs on the back of your neck to stand up. Hannah Reid‘s lush, powerful vocals often draw comparisons to fellow Londoner, Florence Welch. However, Hannah also has a haunting quality in her inflections that contributes greatly to the quaint but reverberant sound the band has already become well known for. Although the group may only have three songs out, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to pick a favorite. The band doesn’t plan to release this single until June 16, meaning we’ll have to keep our fingers glued to the SoundCloud play button until then. And, as if you needed more of a reason to fall in love with the band, check out a live rendition of this song over at The Guardian’s website.

[NEW] London Grammar – Metal & Dust

We previously fell in love with the English trio London Grammar back when they shared the chill, impressive number “Hey Now” in December. Now, they’re back to win our hearts over again with a new track called “Metal & Dust”. As expected, it’s soulful and soothing, packed with enough emotion and sentiment to wake up any sleepy or broken heart. And as with their previous single, the real beauty is in the simplicity, in the sincerity — the three-piece hardly ever get flashy and, instead, stick to a solid script of a sparing use of electronics and effects, lush vocals, and strong knack for resonating pop.

’Metal & Dust’

“Metal & Dust” will be included on a limited edition 7″ later this month. Pre-order it.
