ayokay’s latest offering featuring Baker Grace is an upbeat breakup song with production that directly opposes its message, giving off a similar vibe to Lily Allen’s Smile. Needless to say, this song is far more modern. It’s an endlessly catchy, feel-good summer song that’s tailor-made for a driving with the music on blast and all the windows down. It may only be Tuesday, but when you listen to this it’s going to feel like your weekend is starting early. You’re welcome!
If you haven’t heard of Ella Vos, pay attention. The singer enjoyed a decent amount of exposure with her song White Noise, which was remixed by a few people, including R3hab. Other equally amazing (if not better) songs of hers include Down In Flames and You Don’t Know About Me, both of which are faster-paced with hollow percussion and modern production. In Your Corner is the perfect complement to the sassy lyrics and punchy beats on her other songs. It starts out slow and simple, but the chorus kicks in with layers of her voice and the instrumental, and the result is stunning. Put this one on repeat, and get ready to float away.
I like me better when I’m listening to Lauv. 😉 Lauv is the king of the feels song. Just give The Other or The Story Never Ends a whirl, and you’re sure to be melting into a puddle of tears within a minute. That’s part of what sets I Like Me Better apart, though. This upbeat love song proves that Lauv isn’t a one-trick pony. Just try not to break out into a little dance during the bouncy chorus. Fresh off his first headlining tour, let’s hope this promising artist is getting back into the studio to deliver us more songs soon!
Let’s take a moment to appreciate how far Flyboy has come in the past two years. This Italian producer has progressed from creating super catchy remixes like this one of Fast Car, and this one of Run With Me, to releasing his own original songs. Maze, featuring frequent collaborator Gavrielle, and Jake Newton, is the perfect laid back summer jam. Keep an eye on this one, big things are coming.
Kaskade released his new single, Never Sleep Alone, on Soundcloud today, along with remixes from AC Slater, Louis the Child, and CID. Though all of the remixes are good, the Louis the Child remix is the standout, thanks to their unique sound. Louis the Child never disappoints, and where the other remixes (and original) sound a lot like other music being produced, the Louis the Child remix manages not to. Runner up goes to AC Slater. Check out Kaskade’s playlist, featuring the original plus all remixes here. Give Louis the Child a follow here, and be sure to listen to the rest of their remixes. You won’t regret it.
While the original of this song is undeniably catchy – it’s Bieber and Jack Ü, and pretty basic. Enter Papermind’s remix of Ember Island’s cover. It’s killer. Sometimes, over-straining on the vocal, a la Bieber, really takes away from the meaning behind the words. Similarly, when there’s real meaning behind the words, subtle production is more effective. That’s the case here, and Papermind’s ambient, beautiful remix is reminiscent of Deadmau5 circa ’09, with modern elements. Check out the original song here, and Ember Island’s cover here for comparison. Also, don’t forget to take advantage of the free DL of this remix here 🙂
Sometimes life gets really stressful, whether you’re trying to find an apartment in a short amount of time, or dealing with finals, or whatever else. It can get so stressful that you don’t want to make your own mellow playlist. That’s where FlyBoy comes in. First of all, as stated previously, this kid is majorly talented. Second, this entire hour-long mix is very soothing, tropical, melodic, deep, and all around pleasant to listen to. While we wait (not so) patiently for his next remix, chill out with his mixtape, and enjoy. Tracklist coming soon, and here’s the free DL link for a few of his other songs.
Future bass is, and has been, having a major moment. Like trop house, it’s starting to get a little played out (thanks Flume). But – once in a while, someone does something a little different, and it breathes new life into an overdone genre. This is one of those songs. The original is already sick, and in this remix, Quinn’s vocal, rap, and lyrics, work perfectly over the understated, synthey beat. He’s a fool for her love, you’ll be a fool for this song. Free DL here, and follow Tarro here, and Quinn here.
Yasss. That is all. This collab is slower, but the vibe is incredible and works perfectly with the lyrics. You will put it on repeat, without a doubt, and feel all the feels. Phoebe Ryan is blowing up right now, and her voice perfectly complements Jaymes Young. Buy it on iTunes here, and enjoy.
