We’re mixing things up for #166 with an eclectic spread of features, starting with some infectious groove from Louie Lastic. While Kelela’s original utilized her stunning voice to captivate listeners, this take on ‘Rewind’ spins a slick garage vibe together with an injection of hot Goldlink bars to make it all about getting your body moving. After a breakout 2015, everyone seems to be eagerly awaiting what Louis The Child will come up with next. Their latest release ‘From Here’ comes courtesy of none other than OWLSA, and carries all the chill feels that have us addicted to their unique electronic sound. Clean beats and bright percussive elements pave the way for the catchy melody to bury its way inside your head, to be replayed over and over whenever the right mood strikes.
It’s a similar melodic quality that makes this next collab from Pure Pool and Deech such a joy to listen to. ‘Puppet Castle’ brings a sweet blend of classic bass sounds with fresh production elements, oozing a velvety style of mellow music reminiscent of the 90’s sitcom era. We move from retro influence to an atmosphere inspired by modern anime, with Miro crafting an epic harmonic experience from Kozoro’s ‘Curious’. While the original already radiated many entrancing traits, the UK producer reinterprets the song into a breathtaking vocal journey that climaxes with an emotion-filled guitar solo just made for the pinnacle moment of the scene it portrays.
It’s the perfect note to close out our write-up as well. Peace out.
