Plastic Plates is my hero and can honestly do no wrong whenever he drops any production or remix. His style varies and his vocals change, but his quality is consistent. This track with UK singer Georgia Mason is absolute fire, combining beautiful vocals with a strong dance beat that drips of crossover appeal. “Running Blind” is a another great remix from this New Yorker-by-way-of-Australia and I’m excited to see where he takes his sound in the future.
Seriously can’t get enough of Flume right now and he’s back again with another big jam. This track is characterized by a melancholy synth that sirens through your brain as crescendos of sound wrap around bass drops. The vocals speak of ease and blindly bring you in. Seekae’s “Test & Recognise” is given an unreal makeover.
California-based beatmaker esta. just offered up his edit of Sam Smith’s “Leave Your Lover” and it’s dripping in funk and lazy house grooves. The Sam Smith portion is relatively buried as heavily modulated vocals but the result sounds like a houseier Kaytranada, with saccharine stabs and a snaking sub bass. It’s the perfect sound track to 90 degree days:
Anyone who actively uses SoundCloud knows that there is simply too much good music being produced and released every single day to be able to catch it all. And if you’re like me and follow over 1,000 different great artists, forget about it. And don’t even get me started on that “Repost” button…
The purpose of these ‘Blisspop Bonus Tracks’ round-ups is pretty simple: A gathering of all the music that may have slipped through the cracks.
In this first round-up, we’ve got a lot of different kinds of sounds to offer. Highlights include an awesome new one from Finnish duo TJH87 featuring Gamble & Burke, an airy electronic EP from Distant Cousin, and a magnificent number from Sol Rising off his new album ‘Mystical Awakening’. There’s much more goodness than that of course as you’ll find… Enjoy everything below!
Tommy Vercetti’s Good Feeling Ep is finally out today after months of anticipation leading off of the title track. The EP is a flawless collection of high energy house tracks with addicting grooves and a classic feel, and the newest addition is a monster remix of “Big Love” by label mate Scott Forshaw. His mix twists the track into a late night club monster with an unstoppable bass line, jackin beat, and warm stabs. It maintains enough of the original to capture the undeniable feel good groove but also injects it with a new energy that will fit perfectly in bassier sets. Don’t sleep on this release! Each track is a 10/10 and some of the best music released this year:
