For what sounds like a heavily Apex Twin influenced song “An Elderly Woman Named Jeff” by Budo is a somewhat overwhelming original. The unconventional sounds fuse together to make a concoction of jazz, hip-hop, & electronic music over the five minutes of the record. Budo’s older releases “Barcelona” and “Helsinki” featured more live trumpet throughout the track which gave them a more organic feel to them, while on “An Elderly Woman Named Jeff” only the outro features the brass instrument, but it is just what the outro needed.

Seinabo Sey got her shine from her debut release “Younger” with the help of the Norwegian producer Kygo, and now it’s another Scandinavian artist who took on Seinabo’s lead single “Poetic” off her must hear album “Pretend,” and it’s absolute gold! Opting for a progressive vibe, Norde’s production, who already shook up Swedish radio with his debut single “Every Single Night,” will wake up all your senses with the pairing of Miss Sey’s soulful vocals and story telling. There’s no wonder why Taylor Swift chose this track on her Spotify playlist curation… I hope this track blows up, Norde and Seinabo Sey are the future, this is a must a listen!

A little late on this one but the Summer vibes are very real on this one and I needed some Summer in my life today. This catchy little tune was co-written by good friends Jack Fiskio and TJ Hickey who both hail from Boston. Jack on the hook and TJ shredding the verses was the perfect formula for this catchy tune.

I get hit with a lot of submissions, and I take the time to listen to most of them, and at times, I mean to support, though it takes me a few days, if I end up getting a chance to post, but this Dart Party remix of TOTEM’s “All Falls Down” was worth going back to – it’s exactly what I need tonight. There’s a genre that’s been coming about lately that I believe is the future, it’s a blend of nu-disco with progressive house, and deep house, it’s the fine line between underground, and mainstream, without trying to please either. It’s making music that feels good on the dancefloor, and this remix covers all of those bases. If you’re looking for something smooth, light, and melodic, Dart Party has you covered, this is a must listen, and a must download! PS, give it a <3 on Hypem if you dig!
