Dirtybird’s Scavazza drops Shake Your Hearts – EP

Dirtybird’s Scavazza drops the “Shake Your Hearts – EP” with two slick original tracks and a remix from Harry Romero.


Scavazza’s Shake Your Hearts is a downtempo progressive track with some deep melodies.

Dirtybird has been busy lately. Doing numerous live sets throughout the week, recently Scavazza and Harry Romero played an enjoyable set to help give all of us stuck at home something to bop to. Scavazza opened with his recently released track “Shake Your Hearts” which couldn’t help but immediately catch my ear.

The peaceful repetitive piano/synth lulls you into a deep trance. The vocals chanting “shake your hearts…” possess a very Santigold feel as the track builds before the bass creeps in.

The music video seems to have been simultaneously released, and features a bit of political commentary. Scavazza is watching the news on TV, which is filled with anxiety-producing headlines, mainly coming out of the United States, and the Brazilian DJ has had enough, turning it off to go spend time outside, on the beach, in the company of real people.

Robotaki’s ‘Anachronism’ EP releases via Foreign Family Collective

Robotaki releases Anachronism EP, a dreamy ride through funk infused electronic music.


Toronto based DJ, Robotaki, released his Anachronism EP, Friday. The EP is a thoughtful, deep fusion of house, funk and very unique ambient vibes any fan of “different” EDM should check out. Released through ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective, Robotaki’s sound here is deeply ambient, just like his label heads.

The opening track “Severance” combines melodic humming, downtempo vibes and rhythms and an IDM sound. By the end of the track, it completely flips, going from soft jazzy vocals to a glitchy snares and a hoppier sound adding a quick burst of energy.

The popular producer has remixed tracks from the likes of Daft Punk and Empire of the Sun and for good reason. The cuts “Meant to Be” and “Beaches” channel both those artists in their dreaminess and calming ambiance. This is beach music. Relaxed road trip music. The kind of stuff you’d want serenading the background of a peaceful lucid dream.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the soothing sounds of Anachronism.

[Electronic/Dance:] Halsey – Without Me (Illenium Remix)

Dance music legend, ILLENIUM, remixes Halsey’s “Without Me” adding layers of depth and ambiance.


[Remixes:] Without Me (Illenium Remix) – Halsey

 

Halsey’s “Without Me” is enjoying national and international radio play as well as good positioning on the music charts. Now, dance music giant, Illenium, has remixed her hit single taking the song to new heights and adding great depth to the track. Halsey, once again, has this remix uploaded on her official YouTube account. Something I first noticed when looking up Autograf’s equally entrancing remix of her song “Bad At Love” after hearing it at Shaky Beats. This shows Halsey supports the artists and DJs who remix her music and is happy to promote them.

Illenium’s signature sound, cascading rhythms and layers of sound, heavily ambient waves of synths and sound add great atmosphere to the original version. These are accentuated by vocal samples of Halsey and an acoustic guitar softly plucking in the background.

Both drops, while not super heavy festival or rage out of your mind style drops, instead opt for an endearing eruption of majestic, magnificent soundscapes that sound like they’d be more at home at a symposium or in an orchestra, than a rave.

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

Our throwback explores Canadian-Haitian DJ, Kaytranda’s soulful tracks and his upcoming music!


[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.

[Dance House:] Galantis – Emoji

Swedish duo Galantis, delivers a fun, light-hearted affair with “Emoji.”


[Dance House:] Emoji – Galantis

Swedish EDM duo Galantis’ newest song “Emoji” is a very welcome affair to the EDM world. Beginning with very soft, yet sultry vocals reminiscent of ones oft used by fellow House DJ, Kaskade, the beat picks up into energetic, fun, light-hearted sound. A nice change of pace from the high energy drops so often the go to’s at modern EDM shows and festivals.

Oooohhhh weeee / Send me an emoji, lemme know how you feel croons the female vocalist. Accentuated by light piano chords and a light rhythm, the song certainly makes a perfect “wind-down” number for house DJs.

The music video, directed by Dano Cerny is a cute visualization of a member of the duo spending time alone at his house with an emoji/heart. The ending is really sweet and the video goes well with a fun little tune like this one.

Learn more about Galantis on their Facebook, and hear more music from them on Spotify.
