Will Vance from Portland, Oregon gives us a taste of his refreshing EP out not on Think Tnk Records. Think Tnk Records is based in Denver, Colorado and releases a variety of genres from chill to rock to tech house. Will Vance attributes his impeccable taste in music to his introduction of folk music from a young age with its cheerful and vibrant melodies combined with reassuring vocals. Will Vance can be compared to the likes of Adam Beyer, Dusky, Yotto, and Hot Since 82 with his new release “Days Go By.” The single “Days Go By” begins with eccentric melodic pads that dive into a progressive styled drop with vocals that add just the right flavor to the track. Being a teaser off of his EP, this track raises the bar for what we can expect from the rest of the EP.
After being expelled from piano lessons at the age of 12, William Vance took the first steps down a musical career pathway. Learning guitar, piano, and synthesizers to computers, the years in-between then and now have somehow luckily turned that artful child into a talented electronic producer. Will states that his influences come from Dusky, Yotto, and Amtrac and its safe to say that he resembles them in this stylish new record. With his breakout Days Go By EP to release in early 2017, Will showcases his particular blend of progressive, deep, and atmospheric sounds. Bringing minutia and structure to the breaths between beats, the beauty truly is in the details. To check out his release on Think Tnk Records, peep the link above.

The Parakit’s new remix of Mosimann’s original “Never Let You Go” combines multiple genre elements that may surprise you, all jammed into one remix. “Never Let You Go feat. Joe Cleere (The Parakit Remix)” has that classic house feel but mixes well with the folk vocals of the original. The Parakit and Mosimann are both signed to Warner Music, with that said, The Parakit was clearly an excellent choice for the pack. The vibe of The Parakit’s remix creates a juxtaposition to the original that allows the single to be relatable to a larger fan base.
In the past, The Parakit’s original “Save Me” climbed to #4 on the iTunes dance charts, #4 on Shazam, and #4 on Russia’s top 100 radio airplay charts, while his next single after that, “When I Hold You (feat. Alden Jacob)” reached #6 on Spotify’s Viral 50 Sweden. We will most likely be seeing his next single climb the charts in various countries soon as well.

After being dominated by our European friends for as long as anyone can remember, JaySounds might just be the savior of big room with this one. There’s a lot of great things happening in this track in terms of production and sound design, but it’s an intriguing pluck driven melody that make this one stick. The Vibe is one of those rare tracks that make you immediately stop what you’re doing, stand up and ask yourself ‘What on earth was that?,’ much like the first time you heard New World Sound’s Flute or Sandro Silva’s Epic. With David Guetta, Tommy Trash & Firebeatz already throwing their support behind it, The Vibe might just become the next big room staple.

We’ve been keeping a close eye on Australia’s Lo’99 over the last twelve months, and one thing’s for sure – by the end of 2017, people on both sides of the Pacific Ocean are going to be saying he came out of nowhere! After the warehouse madness of Make Me Feel, the Sydney born artist returns with the compelling Fallen. Almost vocal enough to be a radio, Fallen stays just the right amount of left field to catch you off guard, yet brings it back to the club with it’s groove af bassline.

The kids from perth have done it again. Aussie duo, Sun City has released their final installment of the forthcoming Daytona EP. While ‘In My Skin Again’ was a late addition to Daytona, the track brings all the beachy summery vibes one could ever hope for. Despite the track’s fun and bouncy production, Sun City shows it dynamism through deep moving lyrics, painting a picture of an infectious love affair. ‘In My Skin’ is now available now on iTunes & Spotify, along with the other two recently released Daytona EP-tracks, ‘Castaway (ft. Yeo)’ and ‘Wake Up’.

MIKVH was an artist that was put on our radar this week by imminent tastemaker, ItsNoRequests. Luckily for him, we take requests. It didn’t hurt that FNT favorite Tammy Infusino was featured on the track as well. “Know Better” is a chill house tune out on Armada / Bearded Man that released last week. We’ve had it on repeat, and it’s perfect for those late night drives, chill study sessions, or a poolside BBQ. Building on the momentum of “It’s Alright” released in July, MIKVH continues to release quality house tunes that will keep our eyes on this artist in 2017.
Grab “Know Better” on iTunes below.
