Mixed Bag: Vol 1

Much to my delight, Kasbo recently released a 12 track album which contains a number of tasty treats. My favourites are ‘Snow in Gothenburg’ and ‘Baru Du’ but the whole album is quite consistent. You can expect his signature vocal splicing and a generally uplifting/positive feeling which has been perfectly exemplified below.

I don’t know anything about Taheran other than he is relatively unknown (700 followers at time of posting). In no way does this discount his production – this track is smooth as silk. I’m getting subtle notes of Gambino with a sublime beat to match. Definitely one to watch!

Here we have yet another Frenchie making waves with his unique style. This track has beautiful vocals which are perfectly accentuated through Khamsin‘s earth-shattering beat. I know that’s quite a ridiculous description but listen and you’ll understand – it sounds like the end of the world (but in a good way?).

Hailing from W.A, Loston has garnered quite a following after a few releases that seem to consecutively trump the former. On his remix roster are the likes of James Blake, London Grammar & Sampha (to name a few). One thing I’ve come to expect from Loston’s music is a strong emotive response. While this may be subjective, I feel this is something many strive to achieve but few accomplish.

Flight Facilities is another Aussie outfit that have been dominating the scene for quite some time with their world-renowned live performance. I’ve had the pleasure of seeming FF live and it really is one of those experience-to-understand scenarios. Their latest remix of American heavyweights, ODESZA, keeps all the good bits and adds just the right amount of bang. My guess is it his was designed with the dance floor in-mind. Thoughts?

If you watch Ballers then you will be aware of the high-caliber soundtrack that supports The Rock as he continues to dominate the scene. ‘Make it’ (in my opinion) seemed to standout from the rest. Maybe it was the way in which the track was applied in the show, maybe not. Either way, all it takes is one listen and you will literally be addicted to the chorus. Prove me wrong.

Slowing things down a bit with this delicious lo-fi cover/remix of the hugely popular track by The Neighbourhood. In my opinion this collective effort yeilds the perfect down-tempo piece that screams winter.

I don’t know what genre or style this track is but all I know is that something about this track makes me want to bounce (especially the second drop).
