I exchange playlists with a special someone on regular basis. Thought I should start releasing them, as we go. The ongoing process from here will be myself selecting the top ten from my list and giving us a bit of a peek-a-boo into the songs origins.
Song 1. Gold (Snakehips Remix) - Bondax
Listen to the remix via SoundCloud here.
Snakehips is UK based, their remix of Gold is spreading like wild fire, along with their new track Miss You Always, they are definitely people to watch. Get socially connected with them via Twitter @snakehipsuk and their Facebook.
Check the original song here by Bondax:
Local Natives is a popular indie rock band from the USA based in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. This live rendition of You and I is greatly compliments the recorded version, which is not surprising.
Song 3. One in a Million (Urban Noize Remix) - Aaliyah
Who else to handle the pleasurable sounds of Aaliyah than Urban Noize is a Miami based music production team. Twin brothers Steve and Steven are at the heart of this musical operation, known for delivering smooth remixes and dance beats. This remix was done to honour Aaliyah last year, but I'm still listening to it on and on and on.
Download and Listen to this remix of a classic beat here at Earmilk.
Check out the original:
Naturally everyone knows James Blake, unfortunately I was completely behind the Blake trend. I got my musical education on him at Splendour in the Grass here was this guy behind a keyboard making ridiculously beautiful beats. The track Retrograde is haunting and uplifting at the same time, classic mr. Blake. The video clip is directed by Martin De Thurah, who is also quite an interesting character just like Blake and has filmed quite a few of his videos.
Song 5. Sippin' - FloFliz
I stumbled upon this cool track whilst shuffling songs on shuffler.fm. FloFliz is based in Aachen, Germany mixing sick beats in a style only he could describe on his facebook bio as "jazz sample based oldschool shit from germany". Definitely one to keep an ear open for in the future.
Check out and download the track free here via SoundCloud.
