Welcome to the first recap of 2017! Thanks for taking the time to check out my post and hope to see you all year long. This year hasn’t started off on an amazing note, but I’ve come across so many inspiring tracks featuring a variety of vocals and music elements. I hope you enjoy these tunes as much as I do.
1. IHF – Departure
I may have broke the repeat button on this tune. Departure is comprised of so many interesting musical components, but my favorite has to be the Erhu-sounding (Chinese violin) samples.
2. Grandson – Bury Me Face Down
Whether you’re suffering from internal turmoil due to national events, or even a personal crisis, this is a great ‘F U’ anthem. Have a listen. Here’s just a sample set of lyrics:
When I go into the ground
I won’t go quietly
I’m bringin’ my crown
3. Jorgen Odegard – Save Me (feat. Audrey English)
January’s recap definitely features tunes with more emotionally heavy undertones. I am absolutely in love with Audrey’s soulful voice and I can relate to a lot of this tune. Another set of gripping lyrics:
Who’s gonna save me now?
How many drinks until I can’t stand?
Will I wake up on his side of the bed
Who’s gonna save me now
Where will I be at 40
and when will it feel normal again?
4. Golden Features – Funeral
Creepy bass. Bass. Creepy. More bass. This may be the most accurate review ever. Carry on.
5. Kodak Black – Too Many Years ft. PnB Rock (Baauer Rewind)
Genre: Hip Hop
I love Baauer’s UK garage take on this Kodak Black tune. I wish this one were a bit longer.
6. Alon Mor – Presudeos
Genre: Good question
Is there a genre called Mindf**k? If so, this tune fits the bill. Part raw, part cinematic, part scary, this is a tune that will play all kinds of tricks with your mind.
7. The Odds x Bronze Whale – Mercy
The Odds soulful voice plus the stellar production style of Bronze Whale land this tune in my top recap of the month.
8. Tough Love – Dopamine
This is one of those house tunes I want to hear on the dance floor, as loud as possible. “…that’s just dope I mean”
9. Luca Debonaire – Walking On Clouds (Croatia Squad Remix)
Another solid house gem from Croatia Squad.
10. Throttle x Michael Bublé – My Kind Of Girl
I feel like I needed to end this countdown with something fun amidst all the heavy tracks this month. Throttle does a fantastic house re-work on this Michael Bublé tune. Get your dance on.
