Chill, Pop, RnB | FNT Premiere: Greg Aram – Alone

Posted by on October 1, 2014

Greg Aram is an goldmine of raw, undiscovered talent.

His first official video release, “Alone”, paints the picture of heartbreak in the form of a somber R&B-pop ballad. While his songwriting certainly needs a little honing, the soulful voice that Aram brings to the table is reason enough to listen to “Alone”.

The video is simple, yet entrancing. A view at what the song can mean to people. Here’s what the director had to say: “We believed that the end of a relationship is a lot like being in “the club” and not the hyper exaggerated version we see on tv. Instead we show a place filled with life and color yet it is still hollow and lacks feeling. It’s a place where the ability to connect to others is gone and instead we just have individuals in a space feeling lost and broken.”

Enjoy the Greg Aram song and video, there’s plenty more on the horizon.

Chill | Alive Act – Gonna Be Alright (Original Mix)

DJ Raffael De Luca put me on to this super group Alive Act he started with DJ Joel Jungell on the production and Marcus Miller on the saxophone. The basis of the music is to recreate melodic deep house with live instruments, because in all honesty, that’s the future. There’s nothing more exciting to see someone rocking out, and jamming out on an instrument for that full blown live experience. “Gonna Be Alright” is the trio’s first original release, and just like the title says, everyone’s going to be alright. If you like Klingande, Naxxos, or Thomas Jack, Alive Act is for you! This is a must listen!

Chill, Review | Kygo at Music Hall Of Williamsburg + EXCLUSIVE ORIGINAL

The Norwegian God descended upon Brooklyn at the Music Hall of Williamsburg and took everyone to church, leaving everyone in awe, dropping a flawless set which took us all back in time, from his Ed Sheeran remix, to my personal favorite his Seinabo Sey remix, no remix was spared. Interestingly enough his remix of Passenger’s “Let Her Go” was not included in the mix, though we were properly served with the man’s “No Diggity vs Thrift Shop” remix, and his sensual “Sexual Healing” remix which had everyone going into a trance. The best part of the night for me though, was the last track he played, an original, which the world has been waiting for, and you can now listen to exclusively via the SoundCloud above. I’m not sure who the vocalist is though it sounds like Sam Smith to me. Give it a listen, it’s a must, and check the tour dates to catch Kygo in your city!  Also a quick shout out to Amtrac who opened the night with a nice blend of tropical bass/tropical deep house, and got everyone warmed up!

 

Chill, Electronic | Odesza – Say My Name Remixes

 Odesza   Say My Name Remixes

As if an Odesza song isn’t cool enough on it’s own, here are six fantastic remixes of “Say My Name”. Most of the remixes on this album keep the upbeat vibes, and added their own flare. My personal favorite is the Emancipator remix because of they way the vocals were used and the rhythm. One remix that stands out from the others is the Ganz remix. It has more of an upfront feel to it, and more pronounced synths. All of these remixes are free on Soundcloud, and if you haven’t already, you can get Odesza’s album “In Return” on Itunes.

Chill | Sam Smith – Moments (prod. by Freddy Verano)

It’s not everyday you find Sam Smith records laying around dating back from 2010, but props goes to Kosmo Records, who picked up Sam way before his success with Disclosure, and actually signed his album to their label. Fast forward to 2014, Sam Smith’s voice is heard by all, and there’s no better time to release “Moments” which was produced by Freddy Verano, serving as the follow up single to “Stay With Me.” Calling this genre “sunshine house,” it’s clear that Sam’s melancholic vocals are uplifted by Freddy’s dynamic production filled with piano, snaps, and a warm bass for full sensation. This is a must listen!
