Jessica Vaughn, Jess Furman & John Jennings Boyd – Let It Rain (Ice Angel Remix) | Future House

Some good old future house is always nice to see, and Ice Angel did a great job here with a bright, metallic melody and a very bouncy bass line. This remix is short and sweet, but that’s all it needs as it makes solid use of its time bringing out a much different flavour.

Spikey Wikey – H.O.R.S.E. (The Word Is) [Rokii Remix] | Tech House

A more minimal and techno take on Spikey Wikey‘s bizarre song, H.O.R.S.E; Rokii has taken this song off the deep end. Literally. A very pronounced progression with a powerful deep rolling bassline with little sprinklings of various elements and ominous design, this remix gives off a tense energy and kept me interested till the very end. But most importantly,
Have you heard, the word?

BinExis – New Old Beginning | Power Metal

Now this is something I don’t see too often. A power metal cover of two Italian openings from different generations of My Little Pony. This is a fun one with a strong leading flute and pretty nice riffs that also lean on some orchestral and pop-like elements. I never thought this is something I would need but I’m glad this had crossed my path now. Excellent work BinExis!

Tw3Lv3 – You can’t let one bad apple make you think you failed. | Lo-fi

A genre I don’t listen to enough, Tw3Lv3 has released a very laid back and soothing LoFi song, with the crackle and grit one should expect from the genre which blends quite well with the lounge-like melody and its deep and punchy bassline. Even the visuals harken back to the old age and helps immerse the listener even more. This is one where I can kick back, close my eyes and think back on life. An excellent job Tw3Lv3!

Ariannu – Over the Sunset | Progressive Trance

Ariannu has released a stunningly brilliant piece hear with a very wide open and *shimmering* atmosphere. A very well executed progressive trance song with powerful chords, an emotional melody, and all the little things that keep this song chugging along are just so great. The pads and bassline are my favourite parts about this and this song is absolutely worth your time!

UndreamedPanic – Cruizin’ (feat. Kozmos) | Hip-Hop / Glitch-Hop

Panic and Kozmos team up in Cruizin’, a very groovy Spitfire tune with a lovely atmosphere of bright and clean licks and riffs giving a rather relaxed indie feel to the whole song. Kozmos’s rapping is very on point and is buttery smooth and laid back, perfectly complimenting the ‘kick-back-and-relax’ energy. Now thats not to say its all smooth sailing, as there are a couple very well laid out switchups bringing on a harsher grit with some superb breakbeats. All in all this is a superb track to listen to on a hot day, when all you want to do, is sit back and have a couple drinks.

BlueBrony – Shivering Heart | Chillout

A heart beat stirs.
As chimes ring out to an eerie and mysterious calling. It is cold, It is foreboding. A chill is present in the void as life sighs out a slow, soft breath.
BlueBrony has done it again with “Shivering Heart” A very inspiring soundscape based from the MLP season 9 episode “Sweet and Smoky”. This track imagines how the baby dragons from the episode felt during their cold slumber from within their eggs and I must say its quite a clever concept done amazingly well! Its the little things from the show that still get me. From such small thoughts come great things!

John Jennings Boyd, Lisette Bustamante & Nick Confalone – Invisible (Rod Steven Remix) | Eurobeat

This song has always needed some more love in my opinion. Rod Steven does just that adding a very tasteful flair that nails the Eurobeat aesthetic with its signature basslines and screeching leads. Its a really fun and jumpy take to the original and its great seeing this song getting some love! Excellent work Rod Steven!
