As team of music bloggers, we strive to find acts that stand out. Sometimes those acts join forces to deliver a song that stands out even among each artist’s discography. Today, we’re lucky to premiere “Glimmer” which is the result of such previous actions. Who created it? That would be 2ToneDisco and Dreamcasts.
Together these video game loving producers melded their sounds together to create the future-tinged single “Glimmer.” The really cool thing about this melodic masterwork is that it shares a style similar to class games, while bringing it into contemporary times and infusing it with acoustic elements. “Glimmer” is one of those good vibes tracks that will cheer you up in an instant, and never let you get rid of the grin through the piece’s three minute lifespan. Although the song comes in at just over the three minute mark, chances are high that you will be playing it again, and again. Much like we have prior to this premiere. Although, that’s not entirely true, as we’re still jamming to it. One last thing, 2ToneDisco and Dreamcasts dished this one out as a free download, so don’t sleep on it!
Earlier this month, a fusion of dream-folk and calming electronica came together via a budding young artist named Haux. His debut EP, All We’ve Known, is a 6-track collection of delightfully transient, wandering, and simply encapsulating work, highlighted by positively stunning vocals. One of our favorite stand-outs, “Seaside,” recently got a proper remix treatment from the oft-mysterious Turtle.
Turtle’s Rework features a wonderfully long build up that slowly layers in elements, creating a gorgeously-crafted ambient soundscape. From fluttering synths, to deep bass hits, to the eventual incorporation of subdued percussion, each accentuates Haux’s glowing vocals with a gradual, textural, and enveloping manner. All that’s left to do is close your eyes, lie back, and get lost for a few blissful minutes.
Currently, you can pick up All We’ve Known through Akira Records on Spotify or iTunes.
It’s been a few months now that we have been seeing the name “bitbird” circulating through out our feeds. With all the great music the name was releasing, it came as no surprise when we discovered the person behind the new label was none other than electronic artist, San Holo.
To kick off the creation and amassed success of bitbird, Holo has released the label’s first ever EP, Gouldian Finch, a compilation containing an array of the label’s newly signed music ranging from hip-hop to bass to acoustic. Initially, San Holo teased us with his own first release with his creative company, “Still Looking,” which only set an exciting example of what else we could expect to see from bitbird. In addition to his single, listeners will get a taste of the diverse and talented sounds distributed by the label on the ‘Gouldian Finch’ EP. Indulge your ears’ taste buds and take a listen to the brand new EP below.
We are very happy to introduce Tim Suby, the newest addition to our list of artists to watch. He falls in the rare category of artists who have truly mastered the ability to produce a sound that will appeal to a diverse audience. We can justify this through his most recent release “k goodnight,” which features the buttery vocals of Jessie Reyez. In which he combines differing elements that are perfectly proportioned. The piece comprises an invigorating tempo that is led by a playful beat, which is wrapped in a ribbon of melodious sensuality. All in all, the music is simply addicting.
If The International Association of Baby Makin’ Music existed, PLS&TY and Bobby Saint would most assuredly be poster boys for the organization given what they did with “Outlaws.” There’s no denying it–the soaring vocals glide powerfully over surging synths and heavy bass, giving everyone the perfect backdrop for their upcoming bedroom escapades.
No need to blush, here. We’re all adults. We all have that playlist, and we’re all continually looking for new additions to it. This shouldn’t come as any surprise to anyone at this point. However, if you find yourself in the minority, or you’re just a huge fan of this pairing’s work, we have another layer that might be of interest to you.
Seeing as how every true music fan loves nothing more than to belt out the lyrics to their favorite tunes, whether it be in the car, with the windows up, or in the shower, holding your back scrubbie like a microphone, the simple truth is that whether or not we actually can sing, we’ll gladly do so anyways. Today, we’re giving you a crash course in how to keep up with “Outlaws,” made possible by this handy lyric video.
If you’ve come to know and love the collaboration of Palm Beach-based PLS&TY and Barbados-based Bobby Saint, and their work via PRMD Music, then you’ll certainly be stoked at knowing the proper set of lyrics from “Outlaws.” Just promise us one thing–don’t start singing these bad boys out as you lay in bed with that special someone. It will most definitely kill the mood.
After you’re done with your own personal karaoke session, head over and pick up “Outlaws” for your personal collection.
David Heartbreak is one of the premiere dance music producers, period. He helped push moombahton to its height, pioneered the EDM trap revolution and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. He’s a true songwriter that isn’t afraid of changing things up. Now, he’s back in full force.
“I took a year off from music, I had some personal things going on, and I needed a break from music”
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from David, but he returns with his Skyline EP, out now on Uprise Music. We were unsure what direction David was going to take, given his diverse catalog, but with the two single project he brought some full on emotional vibes. The title EP is a highly melodic, ambient single that can best be described as David’s take on future meets trip-hop. It’s one of those records that will put a spell on you, one that is hard to break. For the second track, “Jux,” David partners with Cy Kosis for a unique trap single that is as dynamic as it is dope. There are more than a handful of records that David has put out that will blow your mind, and this is up there with his best.
“The inspiration behind skyline is New York City. Skyline was written in an Uber on the FDR drive. I just had a lot running through my mind, and it skyline just was perfect for where I was at, at that time.”
You can feel the emotion in these two singles. After dealing with his personal issues and moving back to his city, David is ready to continue making his mark on the world. It’s certainly a mark that we miss. Here’s to you David, glad to have you back!
The Boogie Angst camp have a sweet EP coming from Snacks. Luckily, we don’t have to wait until the EP is out to hear the title track “We Want Love.” After hearing this teaser single, you’ll be on the edge of your seat and ready for the EP just like we are.
“We Want Love” is the damn near the smoothest mixture of future, with R&B and pop you are going to find on the web. Snacks has always put out fresh, easy on the ears records, but there is something in particular about this single that makes it shine brighter than the rest. Comprised of wavering synth work, bustling percussion and intuitive vocal chops, “We Want Love” is a record that producers and fans will enjoy all the same. The songwriting is top notch, and so is the production. Stream the single today, and get ready for the EP release, which is coming very soon!
