While it seems like the rest of the world is enjoying hot sun, picnics and beach parties, we’re still locked down for another 3 months rain, drizzle, fog and snow. To get me out of the winter funk, I’ve compiled a list of feelgood jams filled with spring/summer vibes and and electric party anthems.
First up we have Lenno’s latest remix of Dirty South & Thomas Gold’s Eyes Wide Open featuring Kate Elsworth. Starting off with a steady rocking synth riff, the track morphs when synth stabs are introduced at the 1:30 mark. It’s a chill-inspiring and dopamine-inducing song, with a vibe similar to that of some of Madeon’s more recent tracks. You can make a purchase here.
Next we have a real spring chune with a remix of Bibio’s Lovers’ Carvings. Self Help has taken the original and added some disco flavour, moving it from a beautifully soothing track to a fun and upbeat vibe.
Kris Menace, who’s set to release his new album Electric Horizon on April 4th, has recently released his second single eFeel (feat. KoweSix) and it’s pure nu disco goodness. Electric Horizon is an instrumental album, but I can’t help but think that someone could lay some really cool vocals over this track. Be sure to check out the Livevisual video, which was directed by the Hexstatic VJ´s and “based on an epic train journey from Osaka to Tokyo.” Preorder the album here.
I remember hearing Fun’s We Are Young on the radio a few weeks back and thinking that it had a cool sound but was missing something. This take by La Felix adds the funk and really evokes feelings of being young by bringing back suppressed memories from high school (that’s a good thing, right?).
Goldroom’s latest remix of Alpine’s Hands has reached over 80,000 plays in 15 days. The song speaks for itself.
This is actually my first time hearing anything from Drawing on Planets, and he absolutely won my heart over. At the ripe age of 18 and from North Vancouver, DOP uses a cool high pitched clink synth sound mixed with vocal chops to make a fun ska-like dance tune. The original is amazing as well, so make sure you head over and give it a listen.
I don’t think I’ve ever heard a remix of a Shook track, so I was pleasantly surprised to hear this DiscoRazor remix of Picture Moment. Taking the slow and smooth original and adding another layer of synths and perc, the track is turned into an upbeat piece of funk art.
Happy weekend everyone!
