Slow-Hands

Pure Bliss | Slow Hands x Tanner Ross – ‘All The Same (Slow Hands Folk Wash)’

The sounds of an acoustic guitar have such an organic essence that resonate within your soul. No lyrics necessary, the folksy strumming of the strings weaves a story.

And Slow Hands’ Folk Wash edit of his song “All The Same” is truly a story that is brought together by incredible acoustics. However, vocals are present, but they are just an added bonus that enhance the story that the guitar has chosen to share.

All The Same (Folk Wash)

Check out what Slow Hands wrote on his soundcloud: 

We grow everyday as musicians, artists, and creators, if not, you’re doing something wrong. Much of the music I have made loses its charm to me by the time it finally comes off the presses, but something about this song has always resonated in my heart.

Perhaps it always brings me back to the debauchery of the night it was made. Drinking countless stolen bottles of wine under a full moon with Tanner in Majorca. Aimlessly throwing bocci balls as though competing at shot-put in the Olympics, all the while listening back to our rough arrangement on repeat. Maybe it’s because it’s the first song I really sang on, and the words we came up with meant quite a lot to us, and still do… even if the lyrics are indecipherable to those that didn’t write them. Sorry, I promise my voice and recording technics have gotten much better the last couple years.

But, it’s been two years since that night. And, as much as I will miss the amazing audience response to those 808 intro toms below Tanner panting, after two years of playing it in the live set, I decided it needed a bit of a revamp. A revamp heading in the direction of my current live set, and eventual album.

So, last week I picked up my parlor acoustic, called my friend Andrew Lynch (amazing bass player on my album), and Dave Robertson (Cameo Culture, and my amazing producer over the last year), and we sat down to jam on the rough sketches I’d been toying with. This is what happened, hope y’all dig…. – Slow Hands

Caribou

Pure Bliss | Caribou – ‘Our Love’

Sublime electronic bliss.

Those are the words I’d use to describe Canadian producer Caribou aka Dan Snaith’s infectious new single, “Our Love.”

When you first push play, atmospheric vocals and slow-burn beats begin to entice you. This sultry combination creates a “late-night ride” vibe, but don’t be mistaken by the subtle BPM.

This track reaches its full potential and powers up with some wicked electro synths, kicks, snares, and everything that makes this track somehow eargasmic. 

Perhaps, I might not be making sense. So why not just push play and experience it for yourself?

Certified Awesome | TEED x Anna Lunoe – ‘Feels Like’

Perhaps “waiting forever” is an understatement, but it feels like it has been forever since I’ve heard some new music from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (TEED).

That is, until today, when I stumbled upon some new music from the dinosaur toting producer.

TEED is working on a second album and a few days ago he dropped a new track featuring deep house/bass guru, Anna Lunoe.

“Feels Like” is full of synths, sexy vocals from Anna, pulsating bass, and that futuristic tribal vibe that makes TEED legit.

Overall, this track is a certified awesome winner in my book.

Ocean Avenue

Pure Bliss | Ocean Avenue- ‘Wake Me’

Featuring a beautiful vocal sample of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know,” Ocean Avenue’s latest track “Wake Me” is absolutely stunning.

If you want a daydream atmosphere, then look no further. These blissful vibes are perfect for some much-needed R&R. Whether you’re relaxing on a beach or taking a country-side drive, “Wake Me” is a serene journey.

Give it a listen:

AIMES Burnin

Electric Disco | AIMES x Javi – ‘Burnin’

If Miami Vice needed a new soundtrack, then AIMES & Javi’s new single “Burnin’ would be the song of choice.

This track is so reminiscent of the 80s and zooming with electric disco vibes, and you can’t help but to love it! It’s the type of music you could even listen to while doing some old school aerobics (or maybe you prefer jazzercise.)

Get over your humpday blues with this disco heat:

Kiwi DJ

Blasé Boys Club | Kiwi – ‘TheMara’ EP

Kiwi’s forthcoming The Mara EP is creating some little nice buzz.

What could be described an eccentric fusion of techno, house, and  bits of funk, this 3-track EP is something you’d except to find on Duke Dumont’s imprint, Blasé Boys Club.

The label-owner has even put together a solid remix of Kiwi’s title track “The Mara,” and it’s a bouncy ride. :)
