Hello fellow music fans!
Welcome to 2018! I’m back from a self-imposed hiatus. I hope to bring you some fresh tunes this year and keep the music love flowing. Do you like what you hear on this countdown? Hit me up on twitter (where you can also see what I’m listening to at the moment), or check out thistune.rocks for all kinds of musical selections.
Much love and here’s to a new year,
1. Lookas & Able Heart – On My Own
What makes this tune is the stellar vocals from Able Heart.
2. DROELOE – Backbone ft Nevve
A tune with another set of awesome vocals from Nevve. Love the message this tune relays to its’ listeners – get up and go do something.
3. Lost Frequencies – Send Her My Love (R.O Remix)
This tune is dedicated to all those who got away. I was in love with the original, but this remix is fantastic. Get ready to be both in deep thought, and head bob simultaneously.
4. Lauv – I Like Me Better (Hälder Remix)
I love this tune because I can visualize a complete story when I listen to it. Enjoy this awesome remix.
5. ZHU – Hometown Girl (Khamsin Remix)
ZHU’s tracks are amazing enough, so remixes are no easy task. Khamsin puts a beautifully chill spin on ‘Hometown Girl’. Get ready for some summer vibes.
6. Taska Black – Sandpaper (ft. Ayelle)
This month is all about the vocals. Ayelle provides soothing vocals set up against an emotional backdrop.
7. Autograf – Smells Like Teen Spirit (ft. Queen Sessi)
As a huge Nirvana fan, I was a bit hesitant to check this tune out. I’m glad I did. It’s a lovely (and much more subdued) take on the original. Kudos Autograf.
8. Marc Goone – rewind (prod. judge)
Continuing with the vocal theme this month, enter Marc Goone. Rewind is a solid musical introspection on the past.
9. A Different Way (Noizu Remix) [feat. Lauv]
Heading to the end of this month’s countdown, I wanted to add something a little less heavy. This is a great remix of one of the biggest tunes of last year.
10. Tchami – World To Me (feat. Luke James)(MK Remix)
With all the 90s nostaglia floating around, I get that kind of vibe with this track.
