It’s been quite some time since we last covered Caden Jester, but the wait has been worth it, damnit! Re-uniting with pop-star vocalist in the making Christopher Blake, Fireplaces is as warm and inviting as the title suggests. Driven by an infectious synthesizer riff, adn complimented by Blake’s smooth-as-Whiskey-should-be topline, Fireplaces is perfect for your after party apartment playlist.

The Orlando native known as Egzod had done something dozens of artists wished they could, locked in an official remix of the fall SoundCloud hit “Feel The Fire” by Pluto and Ye. The original spent nearly a week at the top of SoundCloud’s new and hot chart under electronic, something few artists can accomplish.
Egzod expands on the success with a tribal / survivalist feel added to the original. The small pops of percussion in the drop really gives the remix an unforgettable flair, on top of the live drum feel that pounds hard and fills the listener with vigor.
Egzod has much more up his sleeve in the next coming months. A new Insomniac’s Discovery Project release just dropped and a Spirited. release is coming in January. Keep an eye on this guy, he has something different to offer.

YUM, a 21 year old producer, has a bright future ahead. The Stockholm native makes his FreshNewTracks.com debut today with a brand new original titled “Started” that knocked our socks off. YUM caught fire a few months ago with a Tove Lo “Cool Girl” remix that was re-posted by Tove Lo. Combining acoustic and experimental electronic elements, “Started” features the vocals of Simon Jonasson, who’s also a Stockholm native. Ear catching and atmospheric “Started” is a single we’ll have on repeats for weeks to come. Make sure you keep an eye on this rising artist.

Covers/remixes are hit or miss for me, especially when it’s of the biggest record in the country. But this chilled out rendition of Rae Sremmurd “Black Beatles” by TEL, MadeBySwavy and valleyz is just the mellow edit you’ll need this Thursday after that Thanksgiving itis kicks in. Only thing I would have enjoyed hearing on this version is the background version you hear on the original included, but beggars can’t be choosers and this is tight.

Passerine just dropped “Undergrowth” — a beautiful combination of electronic as well as orchestral elements, fitted with beautiful vocals that make it a track you must listen to today. Passerine’s vocalist and songwriter Phoebe said, “I think the song encapsulates that feeling of wanting to go back to the beginning of a relationship and that feeling of when you look back on a relationship at it’s end, how things often look better in hindsight. The good times become better. You yearn for them. You forget the bad stuff. The reasons you left. But in reality, everything must end.” The thought provoking lyrics and intricate instrumentals give a taste for their EP set to be released early 2017. Check out “Undergrowth” now!
