Aussie up-and-comers Crooked Colours really made a splash with their latest 10 track ep titled ‘Vera’. If someone was to ask me to describe their sound (which they haven’t but IDGAF) I’d say they are two parts Rufus and one part Sticky Fingers. These influencers become delightfully apparent on the 10-stop journey that is ‘Vera’. If you listen to just one, please make it ‘Perfect Run’ – it is to the ears what a crisp red apple is to the teeth….delicious.
Disclaimer: This song is 5 year old, however, after a listen you will quickly realise that this track is like a fine wine…time only makes it better. Jerome LOL has taken Rihanna’s strong vocals and infused them with just the right amount bang. Nestle this one firmly in your wheelhouse.
Illenium is a name that has garnered a huge following of late, and this shot to stardom is not by chance, no sir..not by any means. Illenium is one of those artists who has actually carved out his own unique sound, and thus, his place in eDM history. If you haven’t heard his sound before, it will only take you a few tracks to identify the driving synth-led baselines, the haunting vocals that become engrained in your DNA, and of course the hollow drums the precede the ever-so-satisfying drops.
The term ‘Frenchies do it better’ is perfectly exemplified through Stwo. I don’t even know how to describe his sound but here goes…. you can expect some trappy elements mixed with crisp electronic sounds and some experimental elements. You can also hear his future-bass roots shine through which ultimately rounds out a medley of sounds, experience and influence that results in a very unique sound that just seems to work.
Gather round and embrace his sound….introducing Kasbo. Having just completed the ‘A Moment Apart’ tour with none other than ODESZA, Kasbo is flying high! His latest release, ‘Snow in Gotherburg’ is nothing short of a masterpiece. Uplifting melodies and soft vocals polished to perfection. I’ve been following Kasbo for a few years now and you can really hear his development shine through his sound.
Kidnap (Kid) is someone I have been following for quite some time. I first head of him through his Submotion Orchestra remix which I still consider to house one of the greatest fast-paced beats i’ve heard in a long time (2:22 if you are looking for an upper/running). His most recent release, ‘Skin’, took me by surprise as he really slowed it down and focused on the vocals and the result (to me) is amazing.
