Solstis Beyond Creative in Youth

Milestones are something to look forward to for anyone out there setting goals as an artist or individual. Musically Solstis has been surpassing many feats within the last year alone! Every release they published not only sounds amazing but has some connotation to them. Following this duo for a couple years now it has been inspiring to seeing how they have been evolving through sound and technique.

Recently taking Luna Shadows music another go, already giving her track Cry Wolf a remix with SANDS, the two found a greater idea to incorporate into a remix. The plan is use more live music instrumentation into their sets and they nailed it. Exploring different styles they landed on indie rock marking their first time to include a guitar solo. This track in particular is meant to be played in a live format. Making their music exclusive to their live sets now this sets them apart from many EDM artists, thinking outside the box in terms of technique and range of sounds for their performances.

This remix follows yet another milestone in their career with the release of their debut album Nowhere. This project is a collection of the finest sounds and a wide range of emotion. Over a years worth of work and imagination put into this LP the opening track, inspired by Smashing Pumpings and 90’s Rock, sets the mood for the LP with a epic buildup. Acquiring the melody from ODDEEO before the inception of the idea of an LP, who also collabed on Robot Daydream years back, Dreaming in Reverse is a climactic build leading to a Euphoric melody that gives a breath of fresh air before the next beat Open Your Eyes blows you away. This kind of production has been pivitol in their position with music and something to be excited about as far as newer music if you have not followed them it is about time!

Krewella Stuck In Your Head Like Bad Liars

Some can use it to their advantage, some people give it away, lying is not for everyone. Krewella plays on that idea with a vocal performance in Bad Liar, a smooth synth and bass beat that flows flawlessly between the lyrics. This follows Gold Wings a collaborative production with Shaun Frank, another future bass beat topped with a beautiful vocalization by Krewella. Steady releasing tunes this year we expect to hear some more from this Chicago Krew.

Cofresi is Better, Faster, Stronger!

Is it possible to go Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger than Daft Punk? Few dare try and succeed but Cofresi decides to takes up the challenge for himself. With a live midi drum-set setup, he certainly has the resources to match the virtuosity of the legends! Armed with a camera he proves with a live performance that he can indeed pull off a Daft Punk remix with ease and style. Not only unique with his production and execution the man thinks outside the box when it comes to his originals and remixes.

Maybe its to keep challenging himself to other genres or it could be boredom but Cofresi has become a master at these revisions. Not only perfecting a Daft Punk remix, he takes it one step further and challenges some of the gods of Rock N’ Roll, Led Zeppelin, to remix Black Dog. Then upon listening to the beat it was deemed holy for it sounds sanctimonious! After remixing James Black & Bon Iver, Alina Barz & Galimatias,DNMO & Sub Urban, Imogen Heap, Dillon Francis & NGHTMRE and way more, Cofresi has shown time and time again that his passion is unparalleled.
