Every KRANE track I hear becomes my favorite over the last and watching the evolution of his artistry has been a joyful ride. I typically find myself gravitating towards laid-back, downtempo tracks, however KRANE’s focused and bass driven style of production is exactly what I’ve been craving lately.
Another bass infused pop gem has emerged from Cloudkid Records courtesy of Belgium producer LIHO and vocalist Akacia- “Cold Drinks & Cool Friends.” This high energy,Â synth-pop banger is the perfect anthem to help wrap up your summer parties and welcome the fall.
TastyTreat & Dead Robot join forces to put out this electric collab, “The Feeling Wasn’t Mutual,”Â a high energy record laced with good vibes and pop vocals throughout. It comes as the third release offÂ of their collaborative Ear Candy series. The production showcases a new side of TastyTreat’s capabilities and has us excited to see how their sound evolves in the future.
Moglebaum breaks their 1 year hiatus, with this fresh, soulful & vibey masterpiece, “Echo of Time.” If you haven’t heard, Moglebaum is a 5 person project-Â vocals, synths, drums, saxophone, samples- who made waves with their future-bass-funk single, “Raindrops.” We’re hoping this implies there will be tons more new music on the way shortly. Until then…. enjoy “Echo of Time.”
Alaskan alt-dance-pop outfit Portugal. The Man has been around since 2002 but it wasn’t until recent years and with the release of their “Woodstock” this year that they’ve seen bigger mainstream success – especially with the break out single “Feel It Still” which is closing in on 100 million streams on Spotify.
Up and coming South Korean producer NikÃ¶ Blank (who is a core member of WiLDCOLLECTIVE) has been tapped by Portugal. The Man, to remix “Feel It Still” and he transforms it into a futuristic, bass filled, bouncy pop masterpiece that lures you in with mysteriously dark synths, gritty drums and of course the unforgettable catchy lead vocals by Portugal. The Man.
NikÃ¶ will be releasing his upcoming “The Frame EP” later this year with the lead single “Do U” due to be released on October 6th.
Ocean County based producer DEVAULT returns with a top notch production featuring the vocals of songstress Ayelle. The way her sultry vocals wrap about the rhythmic bass production is encapsulating and addicting. I’ve had this one on repeat all day!
