Yes, our time with Jack Garratt as our Resident Artist came to an end in May, but that doesn’t mean our continued adoration has. Luckily for us, this bearded electro-troubadour has served up a quick exclusive video from his tour and a selection of his favorite songs at the moment.
First off, let’s showcase those tunes that Jack is currently vibing on. Unfortunately, not all of these tracks are on SoundCloud. Fortunately, they are on Spotify. Unfortunately, Spotify seems to have taken away the ability to embed playlists. Fortunately, we did still make the playlist, and you can listen to it by clicking here.
Hiatus Kaiyote – Breathing Underwater
Vulfpeck – Kuhmilch 74 BPM
Tom Waits – 16 Shells From A 30.6
Lianne La Havas – Unstoppable
Son Lux – Change Is Everything
Now for the other component of this exclusive glimpse into the world of Mr. Garratt. In this short video, we’re given an inside look at his work on tour, as well some insight into how he got into playing guitar. After you’re done watching it, head over to Jack’s tour tab on facebook and see when you can witness this action in person.
With one listen through this hazy, sonic rock inspired tune, you might be guessing that Family Friends hail from Seattle. While do have that psych-heavy vibe that’s so often associated with the Pacific Northwest, you’re incorrect in your assumptions. This brother/sister duo actually are from Australia originally and are now posted up in East London.
Taken from their debut EP, Across The Water, “On Your Mind” radiates with an ideal vibe for a rainy drive. Accompanied by a music video (releasing later this month), this tune should quickly grow on listeners who lean towards the older style of musical production. The two siblings have a growing obsession with old school equipment and recording methods, all which perfectly compliment their erratic collection of influences.
Head over to their SoundCloud once you’re done listening, so you can follow and stay up to date with their upcoming releases.
There’s nothing like an uplifting remix to start the month of May off on the right foot. Twenty-year veteran of the scene, EDX, is back at it once again, and this time, he’s taken on Sam Feldt’s modern day remake of the 1993 classic, “Show Me Love,” by Robin S.
Hot off the heels of his latest, successful releases, “Want You,” and “Remember House,” and his massive Progression of Sound US Takeover tour, the Swiss-based producer doesn’t seem to be content with sitting back anytime soon, as he’s not only premiered his “Show Me Love” remix, but the hard-working artist has also announced his latest “Want You” North American tour, which will hit 11 cities across the states in 31 days.
On his “Show Me Love” remix, EDX builds upon the uplifting, soothing nature of Sam Feldt’s re-imagination, infusing the track with summery vibes. EDX’s remix takes on a more club-ready persona, as he adds a big, thumping melody that perfectly complements the sunny nature of Feldt’s original. EDX’s remix of “Show Me Love” will be released on June 1st via Spinnin’ Deep, and you can pre-order the remix. Get tickets to catch EDX on his “Want You” tour here.
There’s something about the brooding vibes from MONARCH that we just can’t get over. Between the well-crafted vocals, the thematic aesthetics, and the ability to develop rich, textural soundscapes have grabbed our attention and just simply won’t let go.
“Snow White” follows up on the success of their debut song, and it carries with it a hauntingly beautiful personality. Throwing classic pop structures to the wind, MONARCH weaves together a majestic experience that floats along ominous vocal harmonies, industrial percussion, and glowing synths. The end result is a dark, yet radiant ride for listeners, one which they won’t soon forget.
This is one of those songs you let all structure go and follow what feels right. It was started in Jakarta and finished in LA – Brent Kutzle
Mondays are never easy, but when you have good music, the week doesn’t look so bleak anymore. Lucky for you, ninjas, we got a good one for you today. Just months after making his producer debut with his remix of Robert DeLong’s “Long Way Home,” Win Music boss, Sean Glass, has delivered his latest effort, taking on Black Butter Records’ latest addition, M.O. and their track, “Preach.”
Glass has taken a relatively different path than many producers to achieve the same success. The talented musician began as a DJ, playing festivals like Coachella and EDC, before starting his own record label, Win Music. The very first track of his label was Duke Dumont’s Grammy-nominated hit,“Need U 100%,” and Win Music and Glass were instantly catapulted into the spotlight alongside Dumont and his track. With an ear for what sounds good and talent as a DJ, Glass tried his hand at production, to great success, as his debut remix charted #1 on The Hype Machine.
On his remix of “Preach,” Glass takes the pop anthem of M.O. and infuses the track with his personal U.K. Garage touch. By speeding up the tempo of the track and layering together a booming bass line with infectious hi-hats and a groove-driven melody, the production of the track perfectly complements the bubbly and catchy croons of the pop trio, giving Glass’ remix an interesting pop/deep house-esque personality. You can check out the remix above, and pick up the free download here.
