"Days Gone By" manages to reclaim the concept of a cohesive, magnificent album in a world where pumping and boisterous singles top the charts. The album is a mood piece, capturing a somber, yet painstakingly warm and effervescent environment.
Electronic music isn’t just for partying. It can help you through tough times, as well. Whether you’re going through a breakup, your dog died, or are just suffering from post-weekend Monday depression, let these tracks break you down and build you back up again :'( 1. Feverkin- “Turn to Salt” : This heart wrenching, post-breakup […]
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Japanese Wallpaper is making some serious waves in the indie/alternative electronica scene with his self-titled EP. Featuring excellent vocalists on each track, this is truly a beautiful record. The first track on the album, “Between Friends,” is also probably the most upbeat, but the lyrics set the nostalgic tone of the EP. […]
Flume returns with beautiful new track and video.
I’ve written about some pretty heavy music lately, so I’m keeping things simple this week with some steady hip-hop beats and ambient songs. These artists did a great job of creating a tranquil tone in their music for listeners to relax and/or think over. None of these beats are too busy, but have just the […]
After releasing a collaborative project with fellow Miami producer, Ben Wash, Treznik is back just a few weeks later with a solo EP that dissolves the barriers of any genre. With his third release on King’s Head Records, Treznik’s Exonym EP expresses the young producer’s ability to combine traditional R&B and Hip-Hop with industrial sound […]
I’m back in Belgium and fighting to keep a “responsible” sleep schedule. Being surrounded by forests and old structures has me in a different mood than I’ve been in the last month or so. It’s interesting how your surroundings affect how you feel…Anyways these tracks aren’t necessarily gloomy, but it’s been a bit foggy outside, […]
This week I found some very gritty sounds that I think might catch your interest. These artists tore down the genre barriers and put together some lethal tracks that really set them apart. From exotic scales to dominating bass synths, these tunes all tell a story with interesting dialogue with call-and-response between the drum and […]
The worst mistake you can make is thinking you’re alive when you’re asleep in life’s waiting room (Waking Life) I’ve had a lot of weird dreams lately. I think it’s from reading a really great book about the Spanish Inquisition…but the the point is that dreams seem to be the mind’s way of processing what’s […]
There’s something about putting together these playlists every monday that give me a sense of peace. I feel introspective, but not wound up or separated…There’s a sense of connection with the earth even though I am an individual. This week I’m simply sharing artists that I think will give you the same feeling. Who am […]
I don’t know what’s in the bath water, but everyone and their mom decided to release some fire tunes this week. I nearly gave myself whiplash while dancing to these tracks. From soulful vocals to funky bass lines, I suggest having a neck-brace and defibrillator on stand-by, because there’s a lot of fun to be […]
This week's list is all about textures, and even though my monitors are fried right now, these songs managed to keep their beautifully layers.
I tend to build these playlists around how I’m feeling at the time, and I am all up in my feelings now, you guys. These tracks definitely made me feel some sense of peace. They aren’t as percussive as some of the playlists I’ve shared before, but I enjoyed the use of live instrumentation and […]
Once a month our staff of 17 Music lovers collaborates to create one concentrated mixtape. It holds the very best of what’s been our headphones lately, both new and old. This month’s playlist features some ghostly filters, some early 2000s R&B flips and that hard shit.
A few tracks I vibed with. A future bass/chill trap remix from Dugong Jr up first. From Miami Horror‘s “Real Slow,” this remix is an upbeat yet smooth wind-down track. Dugong Jr, the Melbourne-based artist, is one of the many killer artists in the Moving Castle crew. Slowing the beat down a tad more, and picking up the sensual […]
Kasbo, Royal, and Coyote Kisses give us some sweet, uplifting songs to bring us out of our winter blues.
Vibes from old and new, melancholy and dancey, here are a few tracks that give all sorts of hazy feels. These first two short tracks create the old. Their sounds feel somewhat antiquated, raw, and depressing, but great nonetheless. New York-based producer Henry Chuang has been creating quite the scene with his many short yet […]
Hazy vibes on your way. This time, favorite goes first. Bank’s “Drowning” Dave Glass Animals Remix is the sexiest thing I’ve heard in a while. The lead-in is quite minimalistic but groovy. Then after the sensual vocals, we get this unique and almost off-sounding breakdown. My late-night go-to track. Tis good. Along more of the […]
Here's a song and music video to enjoy this friday
If you are in America like me, you’re probably patiently waiting for thursday to roll around so you can with haste begin to shovel copious amounts of turkey, stuffing, yams, and whatever else down your throat until the button on your pants becomes merely a decoration. Or maybe you are waiting to get back to […]
