With a tone set for subliminal sadness, LeeLee Haxi goes against the grain with her new trap tinged R&B hip-hop enthused project Until Then.

Taylor Wise takes on Grouplove’s “Welcome To Your Life” and the result is stunning! His take on this is perfect, leaving the original vocals intact and creating a new uptempo progressive melody that blends seamlessly with Grouplove’s sound – continuing the “feel good” vibe that Taylor’s tracks have been spreading as of late. This young producer is breaking the stereotype of the laptop producer using live guitars, drums, and other instruments in his remixes – and the effort definitely makes a world of difference. Check out Taylor Wise’s remix of “Welcome To Your Life” now!

Electronic-pop artist Bearoid shares his daring new single “Enemy”, sporting a playful synth melody and catchy vocals. Using strong, layered synths, Bearoid creates a track that is equal parts groovy and meaningful. Samples of arcade-game synths fill the song, and when the chorus hits, the strong pulsating beat shines through. Bearoid’s vocals are unique and powerful – delivering a beautiful top-line that really pieces everything together. In a world where we are more connected to technology than humans, Bearoid’s playfully taps into something deeper and more meaningful — a rarity in electronic music.

Passerine just dropped “Undergrowth” — a beautiful combination of electronic as well as orchestral elements, fitted with beautiful vocals that make it a track you must listen to today. Passerine’s vocalist and songwriter Phoebe said, “I think the song encapsulates that feeling of wanting to go back to the beginning of a relationship and that feeling of when you look back on a relationship at it’s end, how things often look better in hindsight. The good times become better. You yearn for them. You forget the bad stuff. The reasons you left. But in reality, everything must end.” The thought provoking lyrics and intricate instrumentals give a taste for their EP set to be released early 2017. Check out “Undergrowth” now!

Albums | Odd Mob Is Down For Love

Posted by on November 15, 2016

Odd Mob strikes back with a new single entitled “Down For Love” graced with newcomer Helen’s catchy vocals. This time, the duo comprised of Robbie and Harry delivers a track fusing Hip Hop and Future Bass. In fact, Odd Mob is constantly on the lookout for new sonorities to play around with, continually developing and growing their own sound. Would it be their 90’s throwback ‘Into You feat. Starley’, which dominated the ARIA club chart at #1 for a record 7 weeks, their Indian influenced track “Origin” or their bass heavy “Gassed Up”, Robbie and Harry are relentlessly experimenting with all of what music has to offer.

“We’re both huge fans of rap/hip-hop in general and basically started playing around with this old sampled drum beat. The whole track built itself around that in no time at all. It’s definitely one of our cleanest/tightest productions to date! We never set any boundaries when we hop in the studio so we’re always making stuff that sounds nothing like what we’ve made before. I mean, back in the day, songwriters only had access to a certain number of sounds, whether it be their guitar/drums or whatever analogue synth they happened to own. Nowadays we can literally use any sound in the whole world, so it just makes sense for us to always be making different music and experimenting with different sounds.” – Odd Mob

Electronic | “Will You” by Litche is a track you need to listen to

Posted by on November 10, 2016

Australian producer Litche, aka Sam Litchfield, is ready to share his new single “Will You” — a soft, mesmerising piece of electronica featuring the gorgeous vocals of Loui Abell. Litche says “This song came about when me and my friend Loui got together in June and had a jam in my bedroom studio, he came in and said that he had this vocal line stuck in his head, so we recorded some vocal ideas and some guitar riffs that Loui had, then began layering percussion samples and synths.” The organic process definitely shows in the track, as Litche has created a masterpiece. Though simple, all the elements shine through, making “Will You” a track you need to hear.

Chill | SAKIMA Creates New Chill Sound “All Your Secrets” That’s Hard Not To Love

Posted by on November 10, 2016

If you love Moving castle, you will love what SAKIMA has thrown together. “All Your Secrets” takes forward thinking, chill-meets-r&b music, and smashes it together with some vocals that completely satisfies. Let’s just say SAKIMA in now on my radar. The flow and smoothness on this one is truly undeniable.

One element that impresses me is that SAKIMA has, in fact, worked with AOBeats, a Moving Castle founding member and a rising start within the niche (and beyond,) before releasing this single. Point being, this dude has undiscovered talent waiting to be harnessed and noticed.

The label, Manifesto, is a perfect fit for the sound, carrying signature musical elements within that I could easily see dance music lovers latching onto. Manifeso, SAKIMA, and “All Your Secrets” clearly pair together well. Click on the Sc link above for more info.
