I already wrote about this amazing track from Banks a while ago, but this remix by Gryffin and Hotel Garuda is just killing it!! If this is not deep house perfection, I would really like to now what is… Free download on Soundcloud!

 

Est-ce que vous êtes heureux?

I cannot believe how gray and rainy this week has been in Denmark, and most of Scandinavia it seems. Definitely one of those terrible, worst weeks of the fall. The French DJ/producer Merci Fucking Beaucoup sent me his second EP a little while back, and having listened to it for some time now, I thought it fit perfectly as a positive soundtrack in this otherwise gloomy week.

In particular I love this song, Heur, which has the perfect relaxing deep house tones that sets the mood no matter what. His whole EP titled “Life Begins at the End of your Comfort Zone” – Part A is worth a listen, it is super chill and creative. Merci Fucking Beaucoup reminds me a bit of a Norwegian producer called Philter, who used to make really catchy songs with old movie- and radio clips. It gives sort of a retro vibe to the songs, which I really like.

The two landscape photos in the series above are actually from Norway, can you believe it? From Lofoten and Stryn, respectively. I feel so proud to have been born and raised in that beautiful country!

Download the song (as well as the rest of the EP) for free through Soundcloud. Enjoy!

 

Bipolar Sunshine // Goldlink

I’ve been meaning for a while now to feature this cool song. The music of the Manchester based artist Bipolar Sunshine together with the smooth lyrics of the American rapper Goldlink – such a good combo. The latter has been featured on music by big names like Kaytranada and Chet Faker as well, so he is definitely a hot artist these days. I also loved the quote on Goldlink’s Soundcloud page: “Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” Nice, huh? :) I’m not personally religious, but definitely believe in faith and that things happen for a reason.

You can stream Future (part 1) below, and I for one, can’t wait to hear part 2 whenever that will be!

You Know

Today is the perfect dark autumn day, to be spent inside listening to the fantastic music of James Vincent McMorrow. I just saw his concert here in Copenhagen a week ago, which was absolutely mesmerizing. I knew some of his songs from before, but I couldn’t have imagined that he was THAT talented. An incredible singer, and such a sweet and humble performer as well. This is the newest from his Soundcloud, titled You Know.

 

Is it desire

Anything new from the band Years & Years is just boom…!! Everybody loves it. Their newest release Desire is no exception. They keep the pop house type of beat that they also had in Take Shelter, and make it a danceable song with very contagious lyrics (“It is desiiiiiire? Or is it love that I’m feeling for you?”). I can’t wait to hear what more is in store from these guys, as rumors of an LP is going around the world wide web.

Do you love them already? Find more of their music here and here.

 

Ben Sollee // Thomas Jack

Nothing says summer and beach feeling like this remix of Ben Sollee’s Letting Go by Thomas Jack. The Australian producer started really early with the tropical house type of music, but was unfortunately out-shined by so many other artists jumping on that same wave last year. Therefore I think it is especially nice to hear more music from him trending the internet! I, like many others, are getting a little (tiny bit) tired of these tropical songs, but what I love about this one in particular is the really cool beat and the constant firm rythm, which makes it really unique and more upbeat than the typical songs in that genre.

The song has the usual Soundcloud link + Facebook-like = It’s yours, which is always super nice! More from the Australian talent here, here, here, here and here. Yep, he’s an all-time favorite on this blog:)

 

Closer to the edge of letting go

The oh-so-popular Hideaway by Kiesza has received numerous remixes and covers to date. However, this cover by Ben Howard completely grabbed my attention from the first listen. A darker, acoustic version of the original, focusing on the guitar (the last 12 seconds OMG) and Howard’s fantastic voice. So powerful.

Here we go again

My current obsession is this super cool dreampop tune Toxins by Mating Ritual.

The artist may be better known as Ryan Marshall Lawhon from the Californian duo Pacific Air, as he just started this solo project about a month ago.

Eat, sleep, listen, repeat….

Tula // Chris Isaak

The Berlin-based, Swedish quintet Tula released this masterpiece of a cover about a week ago. The original by Chris Isaak is a classic that I can never get enough of. Everyone has had a Chris Isaak-Wicked Game phase in their lives, haven’t they? It’s a difficult cover to do well, as the song is already so well known. But these Swedish guys do it really well, with their minimal, soothing tunes. I love the beat!

 

Follow the sun

Follow The Sun is originally produced by the talented singer Xavier Rudd. Here it is in a superchill bootleg version by Alex Cruz, who never fail to deliver on his remixes. Downloadable for free in exchange for some Facebook love, through Soundcloud as per usual.

Have a lovely sunday evening, everyone. ❤
