“I’m excited to see where EDM goes from here. I still think it’s one of the areas of music where genuine innovation is still happening, and the level of production possible these days, thanks to recent improvements in software, has really reached a stage where anything is possible.”
Deep house and delicately soulful vocals fuse beautifully on this latest three-piece release from Neon Transmission. Complete with alternative remixes, the track makes certain to leave its mark in a subtle yet addictive manner.
True Love is a stunner, nostalgically rooted in the warmth of classic indie rock, but also glowing with its own sense of honesty and emotion; something that pours through thanks to heartfelt and quickly impressive songwriting.
Killing Pickle is a great track, one with an immersive sense of rising passion and energy, and the sort that offers up an immediately familiar intro once you’ve heard it even a single time. An indie dance-floor smash but also something to provoke a slightly deeper level of thought at the same time. Well worth a spin.
Koinz does his own thing but holds close to the factors that first inspired an interest in the art-form, and David Blaine speaks volumes for that approach. A quality track that we’ll likely be hearing a fair bit of over the coming weeks and months.
If Ackerman’s guitar playing is fire, then Resurrection’s vocal is ice. Down From Above is two opposing forces of nature that have somehow come together to create a seductive piece of art in Where Angels Fall. It’s a beautifully destructive track that’s enticing in its mysterious uncertainty.
Not only is the song brilliantly put together, it’s fascinating, it sees the artist open up from the offset and be fully himself, and it deals with a topic that rarely gets touched upon in music and art – at least not under such a professionally impressive light.
Book of Shame’s most recent release Compatibility is like an unforgettable LSD trip through time and space, that’s as lucid as it is alluringly ambiguous.
That build up and drop to the hook is immense – an absolute must for pop and EDM fans far and wide. A hint of nostalgia helps give this a soulful edge that’s a pleasure to stumble upon.
Without being forceful or overly loud, 4ez manages to leave his mark with this track – crafting a clear sound of his own, and doing so in a somewhat musically humble and enjoyable fashion.
“Bands always disagree but one thing we don’t disagree on is creativity. Like I’ve touched on previously, we let each other be as creative as we can and as long as you are playing for the song and not for yourself it works for us.”
To choose just one song from this collection would be like using only one colour from the pallette to create your latest painting. The playlist in full is where the real experience comes from – an absolute pleasure to stumble upon and well worth journeying into.
