Martin Garrix strips down ‘Used To Love’ in acoustic rendition [Stream]Martin Garri Dean Lewis

After garnering three official remixes, Martin Garrix’s “Used To Love” has resurfaced in a reworked format yet again, as Garrix and the song’s featured vocalist, Dean Lewis, drop off an acoustic take of their collaboration. Although a large part of Garrix’s sonic prowess derives from his characteristically momentous dance drops, each of which would be well suited for a festival’s main stage, Garrix temporarily steps away from these high-octane constructions on this stripped-down rendition.

Sustained by the poignant chords of a piano, which lend gentle emphasis to the emotive quality of Lewis’ vocals, the acoustic take is an intimate alternative approach to the lively one-off that landed in October 2019.

Mija might best be described by her chameleonic quality as an artist. Constantly evolving and challenging her creative boundaries, she’s dipped into fashion and visual art while maintaining a successful career as a DJ and musician. She’s come a cosmically long way since her Bonnaroo sunrise set alongside Skrillex in 2014, and now she’s reaching another milestone with the announcement of her debut full-length studio album, Desert Trash.

Best known for her club/festival-primed electronic sound, Mija is ditching the decks for Desert Trash and the album’s ensuing tour. The record’s title track, steeped in 90’s inspiration, offers a raw, acoustic backdrop that features Mija’s writing, vocals, instrumentation, and production efforts. “Desert Trash,” sets a somber, vulnerable tone for the upcoming LP, accentuated by a new lyric video and imaginative art direction from Quasar Media. Introducing an exciting new chapter in Mija’s artistic development, her debut album should prove to be a deeply personal body of work when it lands in full.

Alison Wonderland strikes emotional chord with the acoustic rendition of ‘Peace’Screen Shot 2018 07 03 At 1.13.20 PM

Alison Wonderland has shared a glorious acoustic rendition of her hit 2019 single, “Peace.” The original was the Australian heavy hitter’s second release of the year behind her collaboration with Dillon Francis “Lost My Mind,” in promotion for their co-headlining tour. “Peace” was followed with well-received remixes from the likes of Kaivon, Nightcall, QUIX and more.

Now, in the midst of the end of the year holiday crawl, Alexandra Sholler sets her smoky voice center stage in a stripped back version of the original that highlights her brooding cello playing skills alongside acoustic guitar riffs and an electronic guitar melody. It’s a tasteful offering in this time of giving with an emotional tone evocative of Evanescence.

In a statement on Twitter, the superstar DJ shared how vulnerable this track made her feel, as she’s never released a song that’s showed so much of herself without the bells and whistles.

Live from New York, Zedd and Kehlani undress “Good Thing.” Removing both the ticking clock sample that’s become Zedd’s sonic signature and the single’s synth-pop infrastructure, the collaborators deliver an intimate acoustic rendition of the commercial favorite.

The sonically de-accessorized version that Zedd and Kehlani proffer, with the aid of Beijing-headquarted tech entity, Lenovo, relies on a modest cast of musicians who man the guitar, keys, and bass. Zedd can be found on the drums.

Those who have viewed the official music video for “Good Thing” will note Zedd’s effort to transfer the ambiance of the visual’s setting to the lounge of their live performance.

Earlier this year Louis The Child released the perfect summer song and perhaps one of their biggest hits to date in “Better Not,” featuring the wonderful Wafia. The track bounced with steel drums, clean percussion and vibrant synths that perfectly showcased Wafia’s every word while painting sunny mental images.

However, right when listeners thought the track couldn’t get any better, the guys now deliver a broken-down acoustic version that features Robby on the bass, Freddy on the piano, a string quartet, and of course Wafia on the mic. In doing so, they create an emotion-packed video that really allows the listener to connect with the artists as they perform the gentle ballad. It also shows their versatility and ability to create anything from fully electronic productions to delicate live performances.
