Klangkarussell – Shipwreck

This track is so pretty and has a melancholy vocal that just melts your heart. Love the old school synth lead sound on this track as well. All in all this track floats across a still ocean and lands in a sweet spot of pop and dance. Klangkarussell, which translates to “Sound Carousel”, is Austria duo Tobias Rieser and Adrian Held.

Gravity Circus – Shuteye

This is the latest single from the duo Gravity Circus (Japanese Jimmy “Onibi” Nagaura Yabiko and Dutch German Ken “Toro” Luske). The track opens with up with a melancholy chord progression on acoustic guitar and Jimmy’s scratchy voice that is perfectly matched to the overall vibe. The track progresses to the chorus which is a blend of indie pop and electronica with it’s electronic textures that are tastefully placed. The melody of the chorus is beautiful as well as the ambience.

The song tells a tale of memories past that still haunt but with a yearning to let it be and to move forward.

Jackton – In This House

There is something about this track that immediately called back to smoke filled dance rooms in the summer. Has a Underworld esque vibe to the track and a bit of that UK energy rave sound. Kinda like a finding a missing Trainspotting soundtrack tune. Has that soaring horn lead that just jumps out and is coupled with a vocal sample in the distance. Jackton is music producer who currently resided in Scandinavia.
