[Dance:] Say My Name – David Guetta, Bebe Rexha & J Balvin

Latin flair meets dance music in hit “Say My Name”


Music powerhouses David GuettaBebe Rexha J Balvin are enjoying their time in the spotlight while trending all over the interwebs as “Say My Name” continues to blow up. With over 20 million views on Youtube (as of Nov. 29th) for the official music video, the song is a certified hit.

The song adopts a slower, more latin-influenced flair than what French DJ, Guetta is usually known for. The result of Bebe’s sultry vocals along with J Balvin’s Spanish crooning produces a mix that works incredibly well.

[Throwback:] [Calming House/Funk:] Kaytranada – Bullets (feat. Little Dragon), upcoming releases & Favorites


[Ambient/Future House:] Bullets (feat. Little Dragon) – Kaytranada

https://player.vimeo.com/api/player.js%5D

Today’s throwback post focuses on Canadian DJ, Kaytranada, whose infectious sound causes listeners to take notice the moment they hear one of his songs. I’d first heard of him around the time I initially began to listen to and research Future House music several years ago. Kaytranada’s music could be called Future Lounge. It’s never really high energy or insane, and it works extremely well. He makes music you’d listen to at the beach, sailing over the ocean blue, or lounging on a tropical island.

Apparently, he’s dropping new music as well with the likes of Ty Dolla $ign and will have three new tracks by Friday. Check out some of Kaytranada’s hits below and social media info.

[Bass House/G-House:] Chris Lorenzo & Taiki Nulight – Never Say Never (feat. Dread MC)


[Bass House/G-House:] Never Say Never (feat. Dread MC) – Taiki Nulight & Chris Lorenzo

 

 

 

 

Never Say Never is a power packed bass house hit


They say never say never, they say never say never

Can’t control me, can’t control, cannot say nothing to me
I’m just free to do whatever,
They say never say never

In preparing for my upcoming review on Taiki Nulight’s “Murky Manor” I stumbled across he and fellow label mate Chris Lorenzo’s “Never Say Never” featuring Dread MC.

Released as part of the Night Bass series from their label head, AC Slater, the track is a power packed hit.

This is because from start to finish, the energy is strong with this one. Starting off with the vocals and a simple, steady rhythm, vocals They say never say never, a mysterious synth begins in the background before bass comes cascading down after the first verse. By then your head is already bobbing and your feet already shuffling.

The grimy bass line, telling us to never say never is incredibly catchy and satisfying

This is dirty bass-house at it’s core, with maybe a slight touch of UK Garage. The grimy bass line is accentuated by the male and female vocals telling us to “never say never.” It’s incredibly catchy and at a satisfying six minutes, doesn’t leave you wishing there was more or thinking it’s too short.

Three minutes in, a breakdown occurs letting the dancefloor catch it’s breath before quickly picking back up with a boom, “cack” rhythm. This is for dancefloors, underground house clubs and fans of bass.

[Future House:] Rachel Costanzo – Comfortable (Jyye Remix)


[Future House:] Comfortable (Jyye Remix) – Rachel Costanzo

Australian based DJ, Jyye, delivers an uplifting remix of Rachel Costanzo’s “Comfortable.” Channeling future house vibes, bass lines and great vocals is a deep floor-filler with a depth of sound that is nicely realized, as much of the music featured on Selected.’s YouTube channel is.

This song certainly “keeps it comfortable” settling with a comfy sound and BPM perfect for house lounges and late night set sessions.

[Big Room/Dance:] EDX – We Can’t Give Up


[Big Room House/Dance:] We Can’t Give Up – EDX

We Can’t Give Up (Official Music Video)

EDX Performing “We Can’t Give Up” at Imagine Music Festival 2018

Girl, you’re something special,
And you know I want you,
You’ve been on my mind all the time,
and you know, that we can’t give up

This one’s a little late, but as I was clearing media off of my phone I realized I never uploaded many videos of EDX’s show at Imagine Music Festival. I’d be doing myself a disservice if I didn’t highlight this great track, “We Can’t Give Up.”

Swiss DJ, EDX is known to delve into the more melodic and big-room style of dance music that is very emotionally moving, soothing and self-contemplative. This track is no different. Not taking itself incredibly serious and not a high energy banger, this song is more soothing to the soul and one you dance carefree to, swaying to the beat or shuffling on time. It’s important to have artists that stick to this style of music in an era where others are always looking for the “hardest” song or drop.

Each style has a time and place and this song is a great cool down track or addition to a more downtempo set. Look below for more music from EDX and links to his profiles.

Check out more from EDX on his Youtube channel.

Quick Update then back to the music.


Hey all! Just a quick update. I do apologize for this brief lack of content as we go into the end of the fall holidays. Aside from working, I have been looking for and picking up a few freelance gigs and just planning the next steps of my career and life, really.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season and is getting to spend some time with those that matter most in your life and also take some time to relax as another year soon comes to a close. I will try to make a big point of posting to this blog more regularly and soon working on a visual overhaul of the site itself.

Since I spoke with ATHRS at this year’s Imagine Music Festival, I have been writing for the local city events blog ATL By Day and fairly recently have just joined a national EDM music blog that I will post about soon once I’ve officially published something with them (keep your eyes peeled here!). I have also re-surfaced my old college portfolio site and will be working on and updating that as well, and also will be posting more reviews (music, EPs, as well as product and video game reviews).

Bare with me on all of these websites, and feel free to comment, positive, negative, anything as I love to hear feedback! If you have recommendations for music or artists to cover or anything else you’d like to see on any of my sites, feel free to contact me at LuminousMediaATL@gmail.com .

Happy Holidays everyone!
