Creation can come from anywhere and can happen in any moment. For A Billion Young creation just needed a bedroom and the time to create was now, in their perspective at that moment. Collaborating with wonderful Chicago talent by the likes of Jac Stovler, Rich Jones, and Sylvie Grace with whom I have had the pleasure of meeting while she performed with her cello on Mag Mile Downtown, the artists create a 6 track mix tape that transcends genres. From soulful to future bass to trap, juke and footwork styles with the use of live instruments, guitars, cellos, vocals and midi controllers Chicago look no further for talent and good music than your own backyard. I recommend listening this in order and loudly.
If you are for a ‘nothin’ but music’ kind of artist then LVNDSCAPE is your man. Not much to know about this artist, just releases very chilled and smooth melodic deep house and we do not mind one bit. LVNDSCAPE recently released his first original single featuring Joel Baker on vocals on Source Recordings. Speeches is a beautiful chilled out track with passionate heartfelt words of questioning loyalty over melodic synths and brass horns. Not unknown to Source, LVNDSCAPE work with a few collab and remix projects for the label. Soon after the release the official video was posted to Spinnin Labels Youtube channel, and equally heart warming video appropriate for the song.
Flume is back.
Well technically he has always been here, busy throwin around a bunch of flawless remixes of his favorite artists songs. Like his most recent remix of Sam Smiths song Lay Me Down which was absolutely beautiful. But he is back nonetheless and this time with an original release, a collaboration Andrew Wyatt. This track redefines Flumes music, himself saying this piece with Andrew was “the most natural collabs he’s worked on” and that he opened up to a new way of working.
This track has been giving mixed emotions to fans of Flume music, its intro so serene with a simple drum beat and harmonious synths. Andrew singing gracefully into a long buildup that leads to pure ecstasy and a mind boggling drop! That turns your body into noodles apparently. A definite teaser for whats to come for his future work. Along with the release is a mind blowing music video. Setting takes place inside Syndeys Opera House while it was empty, an excellent opportunity, where you can see the beautiful architectural design of the theater. Such flawless in design Harley did not want to disturb it as he floats across its floors, embracing the palace of music. Then you suddenly realize that the artist himself is a liquid being of inter-dimensional space as he contorts his body in dance along with his music. Amazing video production by Clemens Habicht to say the least. So without further ado, Check out the official video for Some Minds with Andrew Wyatt below.
