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!
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!
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.
New Luca Lush is always a beautiful thing. Some argue that Flume inspired the overabundance of the synth-heavy future bass sound in music being released, and Luca Lush is one of those artists who transcends the usual sound associated with the genre. It’s fitting that he does so with a Flume song. This remix is mind-bending, and a testament to Luca Lush’s incredible production skills. As one commenter already said, he always pushes the boundaries, and this song is no exception. Follow him here, get the free DL here, and be sure to listen to it on something that has great sound quality, because this remix deserves 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 🙂
This is not just another Oh Wonder remix. What the hell is even happening? It’s really infrequent that you come across something that’s completely new sounding and mind blowing within the first 45 seconds. It’s the first minute or so of a song that’s make or break, and in this case it hooks you right off the bat and improves throughout. Jerry Folk’s production is impeccable. There’s not much more to say, so listen and enjoy the ride.
