It’s a serene and breathtaking trip across vast oceans and above fluffy clouds that EMBRZ invites us on with the Irish producer’s new remix. He’s given The 1975′s hit single Somebody Else an effervescent springing, buoyant lunging remix that warms the heart and leaves the soul tingling with joy. This chillwavey electro makeover frames dreamy Matty’s voice in heavenly synths and weightless beats. He sounds like an angel, cooing sweet nothings in our ears. I sink euphorically into EMBRZ’ remix as if it were the softest bed in the world.
Parisian duo Ofenbach has dished out some splendorous melodic house jams in the past, but Be Mine might be my favorite to date. Be Mine begins with SOFI TUKKER like plump licks before it launches into earthy hues of alt and folk dance that recall Milky Chance, Coleman Hell, and Broken Back, but with an extra dose of bluesy soulfulness. Be Mine’s single artwork is a perfect fit to the song with its weathered blue jeans and sultry voluptuous bottom. You can purchase the single now from iTunes.
If you haven’t heard OWSLA signed, Chicago based producer ARYAY’s recent single despite its popularity these past few weeks, now’s your chance to let him whisk you off your feet with his airy bounding, sassy springing future bass original. Always Wanted You even features New Zealand great, Kimbra. The rambunctious anthem is sprightly whimsical, like Whethan and Louis The Child. You can purchase the single from iTunes, here.
Flight Facilities - “Down To Earth” music video, starring SAM ROCKWELL - ok…. this video is WAYYYYY TOO DOPE - I’ve always loved Sam Rockwell, one of the greatest actors working today… but THE MAN CAN DANCE - and the song? The song is GROOVY AS FUCK - MUST WATCH ~ant.
Swedish duo Galantis has always been gallantly dashing and brightly jouncing with their mellifluous bounding dance thrillers in the past, but they’ve pulled back on the gargantuan house beats with their new single Hunter to give us a sparkly lulling, weightless larking future beats anthem instead. It’s a glitchy enthralling, dancehall enchanting, and even trappy captivating look for the esteemed pair. We traipse through a mystical forest with Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw, questing for magical treasure alongside Hunter and its other peregrine brushstrokes, which paint a lush scenery so wondrously prismatic that it rivals the technicolor beauty of Avatar’s fictional world of Pandora. Galantis’ Hunter is out now via Big Beat Records.
Since his debut release in 2008, Matt Preston aka Phaeleh has developed an inimitable style of cinematic electronic music, which floats between the shifting tempos and timbres of dubstep, garage, electronica and house music. Following the release of the ambient albums ‘Somnus’ (2014) and ‘Illusion of the Tale’ (2016), Phaeleh drops his first beat-driven long player since ‘Tides’ (2013).
Over half a year has passed since honeyed voiced R&B pop starlet Alina Baraz released Electric, but I’m still so caught up by the sensual simmering and luscious swooning electro R&B track featuring Texas sensation Khalid. The pair dropped a stellar remix pack for the song last Friday, featuring esteemed production artists and electro pop talent like R3hab, Tim Gunter, Marian Hill, and Hippie Sabotage. The Electric Remixes EP also features this shiver inducing, rich oscillating edit by Alaskan producer Electric Mantis. A touch of dissonance endows its synths, giving it a captivating effect, as if listening to the choppy driving, moody warbling track through the spaciousness of a swelling, twisting water. We’re caught up in its rippling tides and shuddering bass, and we gladly surrender for all eternity to its pulls, shoves, tugs, and thrusts. The remix EP for Alina Baraz’s Electric is available from iTunes, here.
