Ampersounds – Nightdrive (1984 Mix)

This is the new project from sonic masters Fred Falke and Zen Freeman. Has all the best neon glow of the 80’s structured around a solid melody and vocal. Has a bit of that David Bowie vibe to the track, albeit in a 1980’s Delorean. This track will get stuck in your head, but in a good way. #ElectronicPop #Bestof2021 #FredFalke #ZenFreeman

ANDRÆ – Negative mountains

Instrumentation and style reminds me of SBTRKT with its tropical percussive elements. The atmosphere and vocals are what captured me here. ANDRÆ’s vocals are mesmerizing and soulful. Production is deep and organic. Yes, it sound like I am describing a cup of coffee but it has richness and texture that is truly beautiful. This is one of the best songs thus for me. It’s been added to my Best of 2021 playlist here.

Gianni Canetti – Freakout

Talk about starting a track on the right foot, that’s exactly what Gianni did here. The beat starts it all off and blam we are into the chorus with a deep bass and the intimate vocals of Gianni. I love the sparseness of the this track which only includes the absolute necessity of instrumentation. Looking at his bio, he is actually from the land of the Beatles, in other words Liverpool – I would have never guessed that. The song is addictive and catchy, so listener beware.
