Win & Woo – Gold ft Shaylen

This post was originally published on this site

After a successful summer that saw the release of two singles (“Constellation” and “Chicago“) and a remix package, Chicago duo Win & Woo are kicking off autumn with an instant classic called “Gold.”

“Gold” features alluring vocals from singer/songwriter Shaylen layered over the duo’s signature bobbing beat. Though the song has a slightly darker vibe than its predecessors, it’s still instantly recognizable as a Win & Woo track. The producers allow Shaylen’s enticing voice to shine through the verses of “Gold” and bring in a compelling bass line in the chorus to guide the listener through each well-orchestrated segment of the song. With each new production, Nick Winholt and Austin Woo prove the beauty is in the details — and “Gold” is no exception.

Catch Win & Woo on select dates of Louis the Child‘s Last to Leave Tour, which kicked off Oct. 8 and continues through Dec. 16.

Sunday Morning Medicine: unwind with the smoothest tunes in the galaxy

This post was originally published on this site

Sunday Morning Medicine is an eclectic playlist for the chill at heart. Curated weekly, chillers of divergent tastes Alexandra Blair and Michael Cooper bring you a selection of tracks to relax to. Our editorial feature highlights the cream of the crop, but you can follow the official playlist on Spotify

Fresh off the release of his first album in four years, Shigeto occupies the top spot of this week’s Sunday Morning Medicine.  The New Monday‘s opening track, “Detroit Part II,” gets the nod for its atmospheric blend of classic house structure with jazz flourishes.

The Detroit-based producer creates an intriguingly smooth track with saxophone, mellow chords, and heady doses of percussion—nods to Shigeto’s origins as a drummer—for a production that is simultaneously representative of Motown’s musical past and present.

Though primarily known for his warped takes of crushing bass, Mr. Carmack is a producer of considerable range. No where is this more visible than on his ever-shifting track “Crash (Charms).”

A bending lead glides over a foundation of rounded off synth patches and percussion that manages to be active without ramping up the energy too high. Carmack’s production exudes an effervescence that never strays into the glaringly obvious, instead opting for a subtle vibe that flows lithely.

No collection of songs that aims for relaxation and recovery could possibly be complete without an inclusion from Instupendo. The ideal entry to the young producer’s catalog, “Light Lock” begins slowly with a combination of hazy chords and meandering melodic lines. As a result, it doesn’t take long for the track’s easygoing vibe to gently hypnotize the listener into contentment.

Replays are likely and are well warranted. Instupendo is a producer of subtleties that are often missed on the first run through and his work rewards listeners who end up returning to his productions again and again

Rounding out this edition of SMM is Quickly Quickly’s lethargic “Trilogy.” True to its name, the track features three distinct sections that gradually build to a satisfying, invigorating conclusion.

At the outset, the producer leans towards a smirking, rolling RnBass effect. Undulating synths unfurl under percussive melodies before a piano interlude builds to an awakening concoction of buzzing leads and punchier drums. Thoroughly revived, “Trilogy” progresses towards a mellow finish — with a satisfied listener following intently.

Rain Man & MAX – Do You Still Feel? (Summer Was Fun Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Rain Man and MAX‘s heavenly “Do You Still Feel” has received an impressive horn-heavy rework from Summer Was Fun as a part of the single’s remix package on Dim Mak. The original track, an emotional production from Rain Man and vocalist MAX, blended elements of pop and electronic music, showing a softer side of the producer’s skill set.

Summer Was Fun has injected the track with subtle builds and raring horn stabs for a more playful take on the otherwise solemn track.

The LA-based producer behind Summer Was Fun — Scott Stanley — has carefully built on his SWF repertoire since he shifted his focus from his productions as DotEXE. The Summer Was Fun project showcases the breadth of his talents with lighter, summer-soaked releases like this one. His “Do You Still Feel?” remix is a breath of fresh air — one he’s calling his favorite song he’s produced this year.

Sunday Morning Medicine: synthwave, dreampop & deep house to bliss out to

This post was originally published on this site

Our editorial feature highlights the cream of the crop, but you can follow the official playlist on Spotify

At the top of the deck for me this week is a melancholic offering from Christian Löffler‘s incredible second studio offering Mare. In many ways, the Mohna featuring “Haul” represents the best of the album—at once gloomy and optimistic, sparkling with an organic effervescence, and layered with an endlessly repeatable texture.

The track sees Löffler build a nuanced soundscape out of tediously tweaked samples over a solid deep house framework in what has become his signature style. Impressively, many of the sounds used to create the album were field recordings from a retreat the producer made to a coastal cabin near the Baltic Sea where much of Mare was conceived.

 

Body of Light’s “Light Is Gone” is a standout from the group’s 2013 LP Volanta Di Amore. The restrained, almost unfeeling vocal betrays the core of the track which pulses with a melancholic romanticism. This atmospheric offering flexes in the space between our narrator’s yearning and his seemingly unshakable sense of inevitable disappointment.

Perhaps it’s telling that the track ends in an ascendant, almost hopeful synth progression. Then again, a full listen of the LP sends this gorgeous tangle right into the supremely sinister gothic-inspired sound waves of “Watch Your Back,” so maybe not.

 

The Blaze, cousins and producers Jonathan and Guillaume Alric, have gained a serious cult following for their genre-defying and often cinematic music. “Territory” is one of the duo’s finest works to date with a captivating narrative video and a song that fully embodies the term ‘slow burn.’  The track’s synths at times nod to French electro—particularly around the halfway mark—but the track’s overall ambiance subverts expectations with spare deep house melodies, subterranean interludes, and a syrupy-slow, pitched down vocal hook.

While their hypnotic videos feel integral to contextualizing their music, “Territory” is a beguiling effort that holds up through endless repeat plays.

 

Los Angeles based duo Ardency seem to turn everything they touch into a lush, synthy dreamscape and “I Saw The End” is one such gem from their latest EP Honeymoon. Crisp vocal phrasing slices through the track’s wavy atmosphere, a duality echoed in the visceral lyrics—like when our narrator’s companion lurches out of reach, before turning back for one final disclosure.  Shimmering, ambient sounds cushion the titular, gut-wrenching end times which, in Ardency’s expert hands, is somehow equal parts gorgeous and devastating.
