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.

Daniel Bayot – Like You Love Me

The captivating bass-line starts it off and is elevated with Daniel’s exquisite soulful vocals. The pre-chorus lift is perfection. The chords and his voice just gets me, like a solid Stevie Wonder track. Then we are treated to an addictive vocal melody in the chorus. This is how a well structured song should sound. His musical chops (years of formal classical training) shine through out this track. For fans of Sam Sparro and Years & Years
