I don’t have much of an introduction for this week’s playlist, but I can tell you it’s a good one! Despite having just dropped a 15-track album, SirensCeol released an INCREDIBLE new song with Reaktion and The Eden Project. It heads up this playlist as my No. 1 pick of the week.
Enjoy this week’s playlist & follow me on SoundCloud!
Let me list all the reasons why I love this track. Oh, wait. There’s too many. It’s contains beautiful melodies, borderline rock riffs and perfectly filtered vocals, all while building progressively. The drop is perfect and the drumstep elements keep the song moving along at a brilliant rate. It’s quiet and calm in all the right places and transports the listener to another world. Well done, guys. I’m in love.
I wasn’t really expecting a new track from Savoy, and definitely not one like this. It took me a few listens to really get into it, because it’s a lot more relaxed than high-powered songs like “Senator” and “Bizzy.” I’ve grown to really appreciate it, though. I never thought a collab with LoBounce and Bright Lights would end up like this, but I’m pretty happy it did.
When I saw The Prototypes made a bootleg of an older Adele song, I initially thought “wait, what?” “Set Fire To The Rain” has been covered, remixed and edited a million and a half times, so I was skeptical. But this? This is way more than OK. (Plus, it’s like they know I’m a HUGE sucker for drum & bass).
I’ve been searching for a remix of this song that I really enjoy. Don’t get me wrong, I love the original. I adore the vocals and lyrics, but I keep wanting a well-done progressive house remix of it. It’s simple and a little predictable, but enjoyable nonetheless.
I’ve been following Jarvis‘ music for a while now, I was pleasantly surprised when he dropped this one the other day. Catchy vocals and a sick beat make for an epic 4 minutes and 41 seconds.
