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.

Marshmello impresses on guitar in new acoustic video of ‘FRIENDS’

This post was originally published on this site

Few acoustic versions of electronic tracks retain quite the same energy and pizzaz as the original. Surprisingly, Marshmello and Anne-Marie’s acoustic cover of their hit track “FRIENDS” is quite close to the original, and it is certainly an impressive acoustic take. This is likely thanks to Anne-Marie’s polarizing vocals being the center piece of the song, but that won’t stop anyone from giving Marshmello the credit he deserves for playing the guitar chords perfectly with his peripheral vision undoubtedly thwarted by his Marshmallow-themed helmet.

A couple months after the release of Marshmello and Anne-Marie’s song “Friends”, there is now an acoustic version of the track. Dubbed as the ‘official friendzone anthem’, “Friends” is a track that tells the tale of someone trying to get with that special person who doesn’t feel the same way. The guitar of the acoustic

Watch this poignant orchestral cover of Flume and Beck’s ‘Tiny Cities’

This post was originally published on this site


Flume‘s 2016 sophomore studio LP, Skin was unanimously hailed as a triumph that not only built on his self-titled debut album from four years prior, but cemented the young Australian producer’s reputation as one of the brightest music makers in the world right now. The project brought in firepower from the likes of Kai, Vince Staples, AlunaGeorge, and Beck, all complementing Flume’s amorphous, fluid creations, and ultimately snagged the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album in 2017. However, of all the ensuing remixes, reworks, and covers that were inspired from Skin, the Chamber Orchestra at Westridge School in Pasadena, California’s rendition of “Tiny Cities” stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Covering all of the original’s complex intricacies, the orchestra delves into the song’s bold strings, precise piano notes, and fleeting percussive accents. Even without Beck’s syncopated delivery and vocoded topline, this acoustic version of “Tiny Cities” is a justified homage to one of Flume’s top masterworks.

Behold, The World’s First ‘Acoustically Perfect’ Venue

This post was originally published on this site

Hamburg, Germany’s Elbphilharmonie is Earth’s most “acoustically perfect” manmade structure.In fact, the only imperfections of the auditorium will be the reason for its existence: people. The exquisitely designed, $843 million building was planned by Swiss architectural firm Herzog & De Meuron, along with One to One Studio and the help of various engineers.

Not only has the geometry of the space been carefully considered, but the materials in its construction have also been scrutinized to provide the perfect atmosphere. There are three concert halls in the Elbphilharmonie, but the central auditorium is by far its most grand.

Audiences will be limited to the auditorium’s 2,150 seats, gorgeously adorned with the light of 1,000 hand-blown glass light bulbs, but most impressively, the room’s 10,000 panels are each uniquely formed from gypsum fiber according to parametric design using algorithms which denote the ideal form of an object. It’s these very algorithms which give the auditorium such a fluid, spacefaring appearance like something you’d see in The Fifth Element.

“The 10,000 panels feature one million ‘cells’—little divots that look like someone used a seashell to carve out a chunk of material. These cells, which range anywhere from four to 16 centimetres across, are designed to shape sound within the auditorium. When sound waves hit a panel, the uneven surface either absorbs or scatters them. No two panels absorb or scatter sound waves alike, but together they create a balanced reverberation across the entire auditorium.” – Wired

You thought DJ Snake was done with “Let Me Love You”? Not a chance.

After an official remix pack from Marshmello, Tiësto, Zedd and Don Diablo, followed by remixes from R. Kelly and Sean Paul, we have yet another remix – this time an acoustic rendition courtesy of Andrew Wyatt.

Still featuring Justin Bieber’s vocals, the entire song is performed on acoustic guitar to powerful effect. Without any of the cheesy, pop-radio synths and bass, Bieber’s vocals are actually able to shine through quite brilliantly. This is definitely a version of the song that even your grandparents are sure to appreciate.

While the majority of our sessions showcase the design of whichever space we’re filming in, sometimes we like to get outside of our comfort zone and utilize our set design skills, creating an atmosphere that we feel reflect the tone of the music. For our latest Buzzsession with Lady Lamb, we transformed Douglass Recording into a film set for an unparalleled performance of “Spat Out Spit” with visual lyrics to match the song. We’re really proud of this one, the crew who worked so hard to make it so very special and of course to Aly herself for a killer performance. Tune in for the magic and let us know what you think on Twitter.

Gorgon City release new single ‘Smile’ with Elderbrook

This post was originally published on this site

UK duo Gorgon City have been steadily rising from the UK underground for the past couple of years. Arguably, 2016 has been the group’s most successful year yet. As part of their Kingdom project, Matt Robson and Kye Gibbon have released their seventh single in the last six months, titled “Smile,” which features vocals from upcoming UK talent Elderbrook.

A follow-up to a slew of tracks including “All Four Walls,” “Blue Parrot,” “Impaired Vision,” and their recent collaboration with Wyclef Jean “Zoom Zoom,” “Smile” further solidifies Gorgon City as masters of pop-driven house. The duo dropped the single on Virgin shortly before their UK tour is set to in mid-October.

At just twenty-two years old, multi-talented Elderbrook has already made a name for himself in the electronic music scene. His first EPs, Simmer Down and Travel Slow, both ended up with a #1 slot on HypeMachine. Moreover, his latest track, “Closer,” garnered the support of the likes of Annie Mac, Pete Tong, and Danny Howard of BBC Radio 1.

In addition to releasing the original track, Gorgon City and Elderbrook have shared a recently recorded acoustic version of the single. While the original track features soft chords and a bass-laden beat that carry Elderbrook’s soulful vocals to meet a pithy, synth-filled drop, the acoustic version further highlights Elderbrook’s mesmerizing voice and the song’s infectious drum rhythm.
