Traces (feat. IOLITE)

Oooooh boy, Finland’s firey talent Alisky dropped his debut single recently and it’s a hot one. The collaboration with IOLITE called “Traces” has us putting Alisky high on our lists of artists to watch. In one fell swoop he grabs our ears with both hands and forces us to pay attention to his talents.

It’s always great to see a new act debut and “Traces” couldn’t have been a better first step for the producer. He sets his tone with a dynamic house record that is as danceable as it is delightful. It starts off quick and doesn’t pull any punches for its entirety. “Traces” is a must have, so add it to your library today.

[Electronic] Mickey Kojak – Get Out

Australia’s Mickey Kojak went retro with his newest single “Get Out.” You won’t be leaving this one anytime soon as “Get Out” is a completely mesmerizing hit. Although we were loving his covers, it’s nice to hear Mickey jump on an original.

“Get Out” pulls from a variety of genres and eras and sews all the little pieces together into one beautiful piece. The single feels like it could have been released in the 70’s or 80’s only to stand the test of time as a song we continue to jam out to it today. Although it’s not a classic in that sense, it very well could be given time.

It is one of the many releases that are signaling the shift of sound to the more Spring/Summer friendly vibe. Although it’s among a stream of releases of people readying for the season, this one is among the top.

“Brave” shares an indie dance sound that is perfect for the upcoming pool parties – don’t be surprised if this one shows up while you’re at Miami Music Week if you happen to be going. It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Allertz, but he’s coming back extremely strong with this original.
