Alternative, Indie | Hands by Aaron Taos is a smash!

Posted by on June 20, 2016

I was discovering tunes on this new platform, Fanburst, and there are some absolute jams on here. I ran into this new song, and it is absolutely summer hanging at its finest. I think this sounds like a modern jam band, with cool summer Brooklyn vibes. Songwriting is on point and I love the melodies!

Electro-House, Electronic, Indie, Mainstream Remix | Electronic, Remix |Wheathin Drops Festival Ready Remix of Elohim’s “Sensations”

Posted by on May 17, 2016

If you’re not a fan of Wheathin already, allow me to convert you. Remember the Elohim track “Sensations” that dropped about a month ago? Well he just released a remix of it, and it’s even catchier than the original.

He leaves the verse relatively untouched, allowing Elohim’s vocals to carry you through the musical backdrop. With rhythmic hand claps and an epic synth-laden drop, this track is both chilled and dance-worthy. The 17-year-old producer has been crafting an impressive array of tracks lately, including remixes of Louis The Child, Ty Dolla $ign, and a collaborative remix with Next Wave artist Bearson.

It seems his forte is taking unexpected indie and pop tracks and painting them with his metaphoric electronic brush. On this one, he turns Elohim’s mysterious and sensual release and turns it into a huge, festival ready banger. Check out the rest of his music on SoundCloud and grab a limited free download while you can.

This remix is signature Gryffin infused with trademark Manila Killa, as Jack Garratt’s infectious croons are bolstered by soaring synth arpeggios and a bumping bassline.

There’s no denying that we’re huge fans of Gryffin over here at Fresh New Tracks. The talented multi-instrumentalist not only pushes the boundaries of dance music with his forward-thinking brand of house, but he’s also managed to find a sound that appeals to his dance fans, while still maintaining enough mainstream appeal to crossover into pop. His latest effort, a remix of CHVRCHES’ “Clearest Blue,” is an ode to his impressive production talent, as he takes on the Scottish indietronica band’s biggest hit, and infuses it with his signature melodic house style with soaring guitar riffs, a big bass line, and pulsing synths.
