Animals | Maroon 5

Yeah, you can start over.
You can run free.
You can find other fish in the sea.
You can pretend it’s meant to be,
but you can’t stay away from me.


I can still hear you making that sound.
Taking me down, rolling on the ground.
You can pretend it was me, but no.

Baby, I’m preying on you tonight.
Hunt you down, eat you alive
just like animals, animals.
Like animals.
Maybe you think you that can hide.
I can smell your scent for miles
just like animals, animals.
Like animals.

For a heady, intoxicating flashback to The Fugees, don’t pass up on this remix of Rumble In The Jungle by Santa Monica producer Beshken. The jazzy, luxuriant edit is full of chill, deep, future bass goodness and retains a lot of that old school vibe and charm of The Fugees. For some more scrumptious music from Beshken, check out his remix of Doja Cat’s So High below, too.

LISTEN: 〈PURRE GOOHN〉, AOR

彼らの存在を知ったのは正直に〈PURRE GOOHN〉からのプロモーションのメールだったが、AORはHHW的に取り上げずにはいられない。公式のプロフィール曰く、

  • NY在住の実験音楽家のEricoWakamatsu、自身のバンドquiet actingでも活躍中のフレットレスベーシスト、ハマツヨシフミ、murmur records 相田悠希の3人で結成された新感覚実験音楽トリオ。
  • ノイズと即興、オーディオプロセッシングといったこれまでの実験音楽の要素をロックとヒップホップのリズムで展開する。フレットレスベースを軸としたその特異なバランス感覚による電子音楽は、美術、舞台の領域から、「Ametsub, shotahirama 以降の電子音楽はこうなっていくのではないか」という電子音楽の一歩先を予見する声すら上がっている。

とのことで。

日本はノイズの国であると同時に電子音楽、エレクトロニカの輸出国でもある。それを説明するにあたって作家を引用するならば、彼らのプロフィールにもあるAmetsubやshotahiramaは勿論こと、Ryoji IkedaやRei Harakami、Piana、Kashiwa Daisuke、teruyuki nobuchika……うん、きりがない。

東京から現れたグループ・LLLLが伝統的なジャパニーズ・エレクトロニカの感性からチルウェイヴやドリーム・ウェイヴ方面へとベクトルを広げたのだとしたら、このAORは同じ地点からレフトフィールドに舵を切っている。そのバランスはメトロノリにも通じるものがあって。メランコリック、ダウナー、そして前提としてのポップ。

さて、彼らは今後も引き続き僕たちに夢を見させてくれるだろうか?個人的な希望としては、その夢には黒く染まっていて欲しいが、それは彼らに強要すべきではないだろう。

それにしても日本の音楽、盛り上がってるな~!

UK crooner Leon Else’s seductive, dark River Full Of Liquor has been remixed by Black Butter Records signed Swiss producer Pablo Nouvelle, and its a delicious, wicked take that evokes The Weeknd. The track is still so incredibly doleful and lustful, but Nouvelle amps up the future production on the tune, big time. The original is the title track off of Leon Else’s debut EP, out last month.

"Send your dreams
Where nobody hides
Give your tears 
To the tide
No time…
No time…

There’s no end
There is no goodbye
Disappear
With the night
No time…
No time…”

This next gorgeous one is a combo of two things I love very dearly: Shura, whose song Touch still melts me everytime I return to it, and Jessie Ware, who, well, you should already know how amazing she is. Worlds collide on this remix of Jessie Ware’s Say You Love Me (off her forthcoming sophomore album Tough Love and co-written by Ed Sheeran) by rising newcomer Shura. It’s blissful, sensual perfection.

New Jersey electronic duo Synchronice, aka James and Will Saulsky, dropped an original today named The Only, and it’s their very first song with their own vocals on it. I think they need to do that more often, because their soulful vocals pair perfectly with the vibing tune and its melodic dubstep production. The Only is a beautiful, intoxicating electronic number. Synchronice has two new collaborations in the works, plus several more originals. I’ll be looking out for those.

  • Welcome Back Prisma! (I dunno I don't really have a name for this but it was inspired by Imogens new song "The Beast" and while I was making it I was like HOLY SHIT THIS SOUNDS AMAZING)
