I was wondering when the world was going to get the Christmas album it deserved. It was about time someone took the title away from Mariah Carey and leave it to a Chicago native to get the job done right. Kaskade brought back to life Christmas tradition with this album and added the sound and energy of modern day culture. Nobody could have pulled this off better.
These guys are so vibrant just all the time their good vibes are unstoppable. Creating so many different songs to express just that and they are back again with another feel good tune. Louis the Child‘s Last To Leave will have you dancing overtime. Caroline Ailin flows over the synth bass. Following Right To It with Ashe, another energetic song that had the Aragon Ballroom bouncing as they passed through their homecity Chicago for their Friendsgiving show with Win & Woo, Whethan, Joey Purp and Party Pupils. Party with these tunes in your playlist and no one will want to leave the party!
The remix artist in Manic Focus is shining bright at this years end. Following his Minds Rising LP JmaC pulls off a few impressive remixes to artists like Big Gigantic with Pell, Liquid Stranger with Mr. Bill and Lotus. Adding to that list is the iconic Zeds Dead, a dynamic duo on their own with unique sound bending synth bass and hip hop influenced beat work. Combine that with Manics originality, aint nothin like that around.
If this aint enough jmaC just released a special mix for the holidays on his soundcloud that features some unreleased beats. Saving the Potatoes and Steak for last Manic Focus joins a line of respected artists for a compilation album for Big Beat Records. The first original in a long while but the wait was well worthy. Withs guns fully loaded the Super Happy Funtime tour scheduled to start its journey in Bangkok, Thailand should be on your bucket list. Follow him for tour dates in your city if you missed him on Liquid Strangers Hyper Color tour you are getting another chance.
Been a little over a year since OddCouple, Zach Henderson released his Liberation, To celebrate he curated a show in honor of the project filled with some of Chicago’s best creatives. Henderson has been enjoying a run of shows following the release from Summerfest 4cast to theMID AuxChord DJ‘s to p4k afters and Northerly Island. Back with more shows following the anniversary in Chicago and LA we can catch him in January in the City, enjoying that liberated life.
See The Sun sheds light on your playlist with some smooth quality instrumental and most recently Feels Like takes over with Jack Red flowin over the beat. A little different direction from the Sun as Henderson switches up styles naturally. Henderson also released a mix of songs after Goonin around on soundcloud that he calls IL!ke2dnc, because he likes to dance. Hopefully all this activity follows up more dope music cause that it Feels Like!
Solstis is back with new music for Chicago and fans abroad. This time they pull out an original from their playlist. Up until now this past year the duo have been releasing remixes for artists like Luna Shadows and Autolaser w/ PLS&TY and a throwback with Nelly Furtado. This release also makes their first original track with an independent singer/ songwriter. Ally Ahern and Solstis compliment eachothers flow and style with Take Me they just created an instant with ease. With this release maybe a full project can be on its way we will have to see!
Win & Woo from Chicago is known widely for their ambient future bass and house remixes. It is their original collab vocal track Chicago with Bryce Fox that has been buzzing around, donning a remix compilation tape of its own with those daring enough to challenge perfection! Constellation would follow after and most recently Gold, a moombah influenced future bass track with Shaylen on vocals. The artists told Earmilk that they all got along and worked together so compatibly in the studio that the hit came almost overnight.
Then we got their remixes. You cannot go wrong with them even the artists the duo chooses to work on are super talented. Looking at the likes of Big Gigantic, Big Wild, Kaskade, SNBRN to step up to within this past year and they respond! Adding to that list Mokita, Maty Noyes and JP Saxe. Win & Woo have a very good ear when it comes to choosing the right sound that work with theirs. Changing the pace on Goodbye but keeping it melodic dance beat with some vocal chops. Best for last Anybody Else will have you coming back for more. We couldn’t stop ourselves either on the repeat button for this glitch-pop remix we can only let the remix speak for itself.
Doin it again, this New Thing will be echoing in your head until you hit replay. First original following a list of remixes after his EP Visions. His most recent remix he has done was apart of a compilation for DNMO & Sub Urban track Broken. Cofresi paired that one with a video showcasing his live abilities. New Thing similarly is apart of a greater project.
Introducing Cofresi‘s forthcoming EP Faces, New Thing foreshadows the quality of the project. Not only does it announce a new body of work but it is marks a first collaboration with a skilled vocalist; Ehiorobo breaks the cherry. Faces itself will be constisting of 6 total tracks with 6 unique vocalists for each track respectively. Cannot wait to see this creative transformation of style.
Working with frequent collaborator Oliver Tree, Whethan from Chicago created another anthem and a dope beat. Working with many popular artists like Flux Pavilion, Elohim, Max, Ashe and Louis the Child Whethan got ahead in the game quick. With sounds that he is producing its was only inevitable. Enemy itself here sounds like it can go up against a Justice beat with its similar style.
