Bouncing beat and a punchy bass frame this track with Jake’s gruff rock vocals. Excellent hook in the chorus that really sticks. The track, style wise, reminds me of Miike Snow – this is high praise in my book. My favorite part is the pre-chorus where the bass-line steps down and he sings ‘I hate to say it out loud’. Perfection right there. The music video is entertaining and well produced. #Bestof2021 #ElectronicPop

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

teeballpaul – Thank You For Consideration

This track has a killer chorus that is sticky sweet and is catchy as all get out. It has a smooth disco undertone to it with falsetto vocals and funky bass. One of my favorite tracks to date this year. There is no extraneous bits here, it’s all crafted to perfection. teeballpaul is a one-man-band based here in Los Angeles, hence the Southern California vibe you hear on the track.
