Sometimes subtlety is key. Ever hear the saying “less is more?” Well, SCRVP and Secret Sauce seem to have found that perfect balance between injecting too much and too little into their new single “Give It All.” Groovy with a touch of sexiness, this song is easy on the ears and worth a listen.

Can’t say no to one of my favorite rising starlets in Gabrille Aplin. She has a sort of innocent bliss to all her music that reminds me of how happy music should make people feel. “Waking Up Slow” is the epitome of feel-good pop and you should listen to it right now.

Tried to classify this song into a genre but couldn’t quite figure it out. I generally love all types of music but seeing as everyone seems to be making the same music these days, I’ve been looking for unorthodox music to post. ojivolta‘s remix of “Feel It Still” is as unique as it gets and it fits the bill. What do you think?

Fewer things are better as a music blogger than discovering or being sent an artist that is relatively unknown.. only to be blown away. That’s the case with Charles Rivers, who is by all means talented beyond measure. “Burning” is sexy, fun, and apparently, just the beginning as he has a ton of more music on the way. Can’t wait!

I won’t spoil too much in this song but take my advice and listen to HUGOwho’s “Another” all the way through. This moody single has a pleasant surprise for you at the end. Stellar work once again.

Pretty chill vocal single from Third Floor. “Oceans” is an easy-listen – everything flows effortlessly from the vocals to the occasional sample of waves crashing on the beach. Cuddle up with your babe to this tonight.

I’m speechless. This guy Aire Atlantica just keeps getting better and better. It takes a certain subtlety and knowhow to be able to create sonic energy without excessive volume and deep undertones but time and time again, Aire shows he’s up to the task. His remix for Ashe‘s “Used To It” couldn’t be more appropriately named. I’m getting so used to hearing the quality and dynamism in his production that I’d be surprised if he put out something I actually didn’t like. For all your NYC-ers, catch him at Bang On Elements next week. Not in NYC? Well.. looks like you’re out of luck.. for now.

Pretty intense new single from JOHN.k and Ricky Remedy on my radar today. “GOLD” is chock-full of future bass vibes and showcases the wide range of talents that this collaborative duo encompasses. Here’s what they had to say below:
When I heard Ricky was nearby working on his new EP for Mad Decent, I got in my car and just showed up to the studio unannounced. When we linked up, he had mentioned one particular song called “Gold” that was his favorite tracks that he made but he couldn’t find the right vocals to pair with it.  The rest is history. – JOHN.k

I first made the track like 3 years ago when I was in an awkward space in my early career in EDM. I knew that it was huge but I just didn’t have the right writers around me at the time, to actually create the song I wanted but the time e was so huge by itself I felt like I needed to put it out. But when Johnny came up with his version I immediately took it down from my SoundCloud because I knew this was the angle the song needed to go.  – Ricky Remedy
