Some Of Them (Lifelike remix)


Paris based producer and DJ Lifelike takes you back to the 80s with his incredibly dope remix for Amtrac's "Some of Them" feat. MELI. The synths used here remind me a lot of those used in Animotion's "Obsession" and add a tremendous retro vibe. For a 2017 release Lifelike's remix sounds damn oldschool, but that is also what makes it so fresh at the same time. With MELI's vocal on top, it's like stepping into a time machine, coming out the other end wearing pastel coloured clothes and shoulder pads. Listen to this while riding your white Lamborghini Countach LP500, wearing aviator shades.

Sleepyhead




One of the first tracks I ever found on Hype Machine was "Sleepyhead" by Passion Pit and that also marked a point in time where my own music taste shifted drastically. Now Two Friends are picking up this piece of personal nostalgia, remixing "Sleepyhead" and adding their own style to it. As I've said before, I am usually incredibly critical towards remixes or covers of what I consider a "classic", but the L.A based duo has done it again, giving me the chance to relive my high school days in the summer of 2017. Can't think of a better way to kick off the weekend :)

"Sleepyhead" (Two Friends Remix) is out now and available as a free download via the link below.

Candyland


I've been posting some really smooth stuff recently, but it's Friday and time to stir things up a little!

Karma Kid x Fono recently revealed the second track called "Candyland" from their joint EP. Just as hard hitting as their first single "Allison", this new track is sure to act as a firestarter at lots of festivals this summer. The combined playfulness and energetic vibe on "Candyland" is absolutely mind blowing. In addition, an oldschool horn sample provides some on point contrast and charm to the hard hitting kick drum and modulation sounds, which helps balancing things out.

I'm thoroughly excited about this release as it really brings something new and fresh, but it's not your average piece of easy listening...just so you're warned.

Danger Love


New music from U.S. based producer Ken Loi, who recently released this piece called "Danger Love" feat. Dezi. The track stands out to me with its somewhat unusual sounding lead bass line, giving the instrumental a rather rough, but also catchy sound. Ken also has an amazing skill finding some very talented vocalists and with Dezi he has found the perfect match for "Danger Love". 

Out now on Thrive Music, you can listen to Ken Loi's new single via most major platforms. Enjoy!

Gold Angel


It's not often bands decide to do remixes, so that kind of makes this particular track a rare breed. NYC based Savoir Adore have taken on Minke's "Gold Angel" and transformed it into an indie pop marble to a track. The added atmospheric elements and fresh bass line really brings a fresh breath of air around the original vocal. Savoir Adore's additions feel subtle, but when you add them up it really makes everything different...in a brilliant way. Give it a spin below or catch the stream over on Spotify.
