This week we’ve got a stunning electronic/rock production from newcomers LUNDØN, a powerful remix from HOSH, a groovy dancefloor-primed cut from French Original, and more!
LUNDØN – DON’T TURN THIS CAR AROUND FT. LOVELESS
After releasing solo for quite some time, Justin Peeling recently joined forces with Jeff Updike to form the present-day iteration of LUNDØN. The track directly follows Peeling’s recent release ‘Ride Or Die’ alongside Kramos, as well as Loveless’ new track ‘Down Again’. The harmonious, textured vocal, courtesy of Loveless’ Julian Comeau, effortlessly flows throughout the track’s entirety, serving as a prime accompaniment to LUNDØN’s hefty basslines and heart-soaring drops. The melancholic theme of the tune is executed flawlessly, in large part due to the raw emotion and power behind Comeau’s harmonious singing of the track’s profoundly rich lyrics.
BECKY HILL – HEAVEN ON MY MIND (HOSH REMIX) [POLYDOR/UNIVERSAL]
Maintaining momentum built on the striking success of the first single of the decade “Midnight (Hanging Tree)” , HOSH has been recruited by UK pop-dance rising Becky Hill & Sigala to remix their summer single. With his authentic underground lens for house and techno in high demand, HOSH takes each opportunity to pioneer new avenues in sound. In his remix of “Heaven On My Mind” innovation is heard across HOSH’s reimagination of the single, manipulating Becky Hill’s original vocals in reverse to create an original hook. The juxtaposition of both bright and brooding soundscapes across curated percussive profiles result in deep, dynamic, and driving dance remixes.
FRENCH ORIGINAL – HISTORY [UNIVERSAL]
Lending soulful vocals on top of a groovy house bassline, French Original showcases his blossoming signature sound in ‘History’. Primed for the summer months, this single emulates a warm and resonating atmosphere. With subtle deep house sensibilities, ‘History’ is destined to make the perfect addition to any club setlist post-quarantine.
CARNAGE x THE MARTINEZ BROTHERS – TOGETHER FT. ELDERBROOK & MIKE DEAN [ULTRA]
A lush escapade into the musical worlds of Carnage, The Martinez Brothers, Elderbrook, and Mike Dean, “Together” is a song for the ages. Dissolving genre barriers, each artist plays to their strengths while simultaneously elevating each unique style to its peak. Smooth house beats swathed with percussive techno elements set the stage early as Elderbrook’s soft croonings carry into a mirage of synths. A textured track infused with nuanced flare, “Together” is a luminous triumph from four impressive artists. Carnage’s typical bass-heavy sound sits back for the sweet, soft treat that is “Together,” standing as a powerful testimony to the producer’s artistic breadth.
COEUS – BEYOND DREAMING EP [AFTERLIFE]
Serbian DJ, producer, and melodic techno extraordinaire Coeus makes his debut on renowned imprint Afterlife. The 4-track EP stays true to the Afterlife brand with subtle, oscillating basslines and dream-like synths. A longtime fan favorite, Coeus delivers a piece of work that puts him at the forefront of the new wave of Afterlife talent, alongside Innellea, SOEL, and Colyn.
