Future Funk, Nu Disco | FNT Premiere: Eko Zu’s “All I Ever” Uniquely Mixes Live Instruments With Electronic Off Of “Eternal Eyes” EP

Posted by on February 24, 2017

This eccentric and diverse trio has a rather different back-story from your every day producers. Eko Zu is a musical trio that consists of the melody weaver Zu’ri, nimble songstress Zu’CH3N, and frequency shaper Zu’Ian. Discovered on Eko Isle, a little known deserted island in the Mariana Archipelago, they are the only known example of Animal-Human hybrid evolution. On mastering the mystic songs of the Pacifc, protecting the island from hoards of poachers, and learning the tongue of every beast in the Jungle, Eko Isle accepted them as her own. The ritual took 155 days; their physiques were transformed into hybrid creatures; they claim to have no memory of the process, or have kept the island’s secret. In bringing the sounds of the Eko Isle to our spirits, the Zu remind us to connect with the animal world, mother nature, the planet, the green spaces, the love places; to remember our inner ravens; to beat as one with the heart of the jungle.

“All I Ever” is the last track they are revealing, but the EP is consisting of 5 tracks including an official remix of Glitch Mob’s “Fly By Night Only,” the EP incorporates groovy disco-inspired beats paired with funky guitars and cheerful vocals. The first single “Let Me Fall” is the perfect track that brings you an immediate connection with their music, with catchy synth melodies and beautiful vocals. This trio offers their listeners stellar production combined with a creative and unique flare that is cherished amongst today’s saturated market and this is how they set themselves apart.

I overheard some epic sounds coming from my colleagues’ speakers this AM, layered with gorgeous soulful vocals, I had to add ask what it was, and it comes to us courtesy of Norway from Henry Land. Off the top of my head, and I’ve had this track on repeat all day, “Tainted” is a future- bass 80’s inspired pop ballad, that could only come from the Scandinavians. If you’re a fan of melody, and really want to discover a gem, press play, you won’t be disappointed, this record deserves more shine!

Justin Caruso remixed Hayley Kiyoko’s “Palace” and the result is amazing. A melodic yet upbeat track, Caruso shows us why he’s one of the hottest rising stars in the industry. From Caruso himself: “Hayley has such a unique amazing voice that allowed me to produce music exactly the way I want to and to steer myself towards the sound I really think defines me as a musician. This remix is a big foreshadow to the music to come from me and I couldn’t be more excited to debut it with this remix of ‘Palace’.” As he releases this, Justin is gearing up for his debut original single to drop tomorrow featuring vocals by Victoria Zaro of The Chainsmokers’ “New York City”. Big things are in store for Caruso this year.

Chill, Electronic | Thalab drop debut EP ‘A Good Swim’

Posted by on February 23, 2017

We’ve finally got our hands on London-based duo Thalab’s debut EP. The guys share “A Good Swim was written and recorded last year in a room in London, by the two of us. All of the four songs came into their own in an intriguing way for us, we followed them rather than the other way around. There’s some second-rate psychoanalysis in there, some mythology, idealized kitsch landscapes and gardening problems. Both sound and words were the result of loosening up the way we approach making music.” We’re excited about what the future holds for this pair and if you’re not familiar yet, dive into the EP which is out now on Juicebox Recordings.

Progressive House | Will Vance’s “Days Go By” Single Strong Tease To Upcoming Ep

Posted by on February 22, 2017

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.
