FYE & FENNEK – Dark Lights

Running to the dark like I’m a light I need the contrast to be satisfied-wipe out-

wanna touch the air with my tongue

See I’m wasting away tasting to fail

Mind like a landscape easy to read but I got enough to keep me

Hiding away, hiding away, hiding away

After the release of their singles, ‘Places,’ ‘Miles Davis’ and ‘Clouds,’ FYE & FENNEK now release ‘Dark Lights’– another electronic-pop track with the essence of summer in Berlin from their debut album Separate Together.

Sings front woman FYE before breaking into chorus. The sound of ‘Dark Lights’ is reminiscent of Berlin summer nights, chasing youth and a sense of freedom, feeling eager to exchange innocence for excitement. It releases alongside their debut album, ‘Separate Together.’ Their first release, ‘Places,’ accumulated nearly 400k plays on Spotify in less than a month after release and landed several New Music Fridays across Europe along with Indie Radar in Germany. ‘Clouds’ reached #1 in Hypemachine relevancy only two weeks after release. Their European album release caught them attention from Italian Billboard magazine who offered raving reviews of the album and a week of social media support. The Berlin based duo will venture off next as support for the LUI HILL European tour in October.

Vulfpeck – Back Pocket (Cupidon Edit) 

via GIPHY

Cupidon did another magnifique edit of Vulpeck’s ‘Back Pocket’ from 2015. And yes – they just polished it up to bring it on the dancefloor. A bit more tempo and future beats but still keepin the soul in it. I like mucho :) Especially today when most releases only conform to any streaming corsetts and attest the overall cultural oatmeal I am bored to death by now. This one is different and an instant refresher to your senses. Shoyu and Golow, the handsome guys behind the Duo ‘Cupidon’, don’t just hack some beats into their laptops and you can feel by the intuitive flow of their tracks that these guys play actual music on their turntables for actual real people in real clubs on weekends. Like their very first official release ‘Be the One’ that climbed up Spotify USA’s & Canada’s Viral Chart as a total newcomer in 2017 this Edit is for the Kaytranada lovers out there. It reminds me of some sweet summer dj sessions I had with our mutual friend Marki and envision him banging his head while me shaking the hips. Add it to your warm up DJ Set or your ‘dancing in the kitchen’ playlist – it’s tested succesfully everyone will start dancing by this one ;)

When you hear this song you´ll immediately  get a good mood. The synthesizer sound injects you a portion of feel-good-vibes as if it’s just boiling.
Perfect to create a party out of every boring situation.

 

Sonnengruss & Richard Istel “Talking In Your Sleep” (Savage 80’s Cover – Power Level 9000!)

Freaking awesome. My guys Sonnengruss aka Tobi & Dominique with their buddy Richard, recorded this monster of a fun pop song. I had it on repeat and their video wins the 80’s nostalgia award I was also involved into the fun creation to a minimini – mal degree, but them guys had too much fun doing it. So hooray, best Sonnengruss release so far and Richard Istels vocals actually sound like he is made for that kind of big tunes. And the video is Awesome AF.

I don’t know if it’s just my 80’s fanboy-ism but i have been missing power anthems, everything is sad and dragging these days or totally degenrated voyeurism, but this one is postive all the way through, and is sure to land on every party playlist, form the lazy ones to the bog rooms. Love it! Put it on and see how often you will have it on repeat ;)

Lu & Sowlmate – Hopeful Words [Debut EP Out Now] – Part 1

Attention world! Here is the first release of a sweet team up by already established Soundcloud remixer/producer Sowlmate and his buddy Lu, who delivers the lovely vocals, to make “Hopeful Words” into an actual sweet heartfelt song, instead of a remix. Good to see young cats creating original music after the whole remix craze that went down in recent years and good to be asserted that some of them, like our buddy Sowlmate, are actually creating music that goes much deeper than any of their remixes ever could.

“Hopeful Words” has become a favourite of mine ever since “Max” aka Sowlmate played it for us the very first time. Some might say it sounds too much like Milky Chance and that whole style is ‘so last year’, but the truth is, Milky Chance had one good song (nothing else) and never followed up with anything. They simply failed to, same as all the dj cats that got signed to cater to these hippie-folk-pop-dance demands but ultimately never went anywhere except Felix (Jaehn) who made his own thing sound wise. Just telling from the many people that surround me, the demand and thirst for this kind of music has never ceased, but rather been pushed back because nobody has delivered the goods. Maybe Lu & Sowlmate can change things around and this EP is a good indicator that these 2 young cats just want to create honest music without any of the hypes & clichés that the ‘music industry’ and labels are pushing for.

“Hopeful Words” is a touching original tune with an incredibly infectious feel to make it a true winner for 2018 and put a smile on your face. I am glad and happy for the both of them that they didn’t listen to anyone from radio promoters, to managers, label execs and distributors, and instead delivered what music they felt right and what they love themselves. This is a golden rule in life – if you follow your heart and really do what you like with a positive mind-set and an open heart, you will always find enough people who enjoy the same things you do. This is how you create your grassroots and in time will grow with whatever you are doing. And in the case of Lu & Sowlmate it’s beautiful, honest music that doesn’t need hypes and styles but rather an open heart & mind.

These were my “Hopeful Words” ;) – Stream/Buy the EP: goo.gl/BAJp5C
