Top Monthly Tune Recap – March 2020

Hi All!

What a month this has been. While most of it has been a boon (I want to get out just like you!), it’s actually been this music fan’s blessing in disguise hah. As a result of this quarantine period, I find myself with more time to discover a tune or two, and coolest of all, I’ve had unprecedented access to all these DJ/Musician livestreams. So there’s my little glimmer of hope for you all. And don’t worry, still got a track recap for you.

<3 Sam

Part One

1. Matt Fax – Light On

Genre: House

Matt Fax is definitely no stranger to my countdowns. Because we’re under lockdown, this tune is perfect because it’s one of those tunes that make you feel like you’re flying far away at hyperspeed.

 

2. Young Pinch – Beach Ballin’ (feat. blackbear)

Genre: Hip Hop

Like the summer vibe of this tune. I really enjoy how it really walks through the mind – one minute you’re riding around enjoying your time to think, and then the next, you hit some real introspective talk.

 

3. Rootkit – Only Knew (ft. Nevve)

Genre: Dance

I love Nevve’s vocals in this tune.

 

4. Dustycloud – Never Stop

Genre: House

Dustycloud always has these neat background industrial / futuristic sounds incorporated in his tunes. If you’re looking for a harder hitting house track, this is it.

 

5. Tsunami – Fly Butta (Original Mix) (Insomniac/Discovery Project)

Genre: House

Oh how this tune makes me long for a drink by the beach, preferably in the Mediterranean. All kinds of chill vibes.

Tune Part Two

6. Ekali & Illenium – Hard To Say Goodbye Ft. Chloe Angelides (Win And Woo Remix)

Genre: Dance

So Win and Woo are definitely becoming one of my newest favorite musical groups. I loved watching them during the recent Digital Mirage festival stream. Get your dance on to this remix.

 

7. Aethon, Freddy Fat Cats – Enlil (Original Mix)

Genre: Techno

A tune on the dreamier or melodic side.

 

8. Big Gigantic featuring Felly – St. Lucia

Genre: Electronic

I’m such a sucker for Cali Vibes and guitar riffs. This tune has both!!

 

9. Ellie Goulding, blackbear – Worry About Me

Genre: Pop

I feel like it’s been a minute since I heard anything new from Ellie. I was sold from the minute I saw Blackbear on the track.

 

10. NGHTMRE & SLANDER – FEELING GUD FT. MATTHEW SANTOS

Genre: Dance

This is a cool re-do of a Nina Simone staple.

As usual, don’t forget to visit thistune.rocks where I post all the tunes I’m listening to. Stay safe and social distance y’all!!!

Top Monthly Tune Recap – February 2019

You patiently waited. Music is on the way! Here it is:

Part One

1. Matt Fax – To The Ground

Genre: House

I’ve been a fan of Matt forever, and by forever, he’s extremely young so maybe not that long. Over the last few years, he’s developed a great ability to evoke emotions through his tracks. His later tracks feel much smoother and impactful.

 

2. Me & My Toothbrush – Just Release Me

Genre: House

I love the vocal intro to this solid house tune. Get ready to hit the repeat button.

 

3. Niko The Kid – Sorry Not Sorry Feat. Brayton Bowman

Genre: Nu-Disco

The type of tune when you’re feeling yourself and want a little extra pep in that step. As a result, I dare you not to walk with a little more swagger.

 

4. Sammy Deuce & Sebb Junior – Elevate The Groove

Genre: Indie Dance / Nu-Disco

In anticipation of summer (it’s been a long winter for NYers folks!), I’ve been tuning into feel good tunes. Another dance-worthy tune right here.

 

5. ilan Bluestone feat. EL Waves – Mama Africa (Extended Mix)

Genre: Trance

It’s been a while since I’ve heard a proper Trance tune I’d want to listen to over and over again. Ilan was able to masterfully weave in a global feel and solid lyrics.

 

Part Two

6. Crooked Colours – Do It Like You (Mickey Kojak Remix)

Genre: Electronic

Solid remix of the original tune.

 

7. MERCER – Your Love (Original Mix)

Genre: Nu-Disco

As mentioned, in anticipation of Summer’s arrival, another kickin’ disco tune.

 

8. Serious (with Matthew Koma) (TWO LANES Remix)

Genre: Dance

Everything about this tune screams young love. If you’re longing to go down memory lane or just a young kid in love, here ya go.

 

9. Just Kiddin – Come Together (Club Mix – Extended)

Genre: House

I love the minimal vocal hook for this tune.

 

10. Win & Woo – Right In Front of Me Ft. Kaleena Zanders

Genre: Dance

Solid club tune with deeper vocals.

As usual, don’t forget to visit thistune.rocks where I post all the tunes I’m listening to. Peace!
