Treneti believes the rhythms and melodies of our ancestors are stored within our DNA. In her song composition process, she engages with this remembrance, bringing forth a truly unique emanation of the sacred ancient nomadic and celestial essence of humanity.” ~ Treneti

With a soothing voice that has your valuable mind feeling so much more comfortable than before you pressed play, Treneti is quite scintillating here on a track that has so much magnetic attraction. This is a consciousness-calming experience like no other, as we are let into a whole new way of thinking from a true visionary who is only just getting started.

Fast Drive On LSD‘ from the soulfully-stimulating Chicago, USA-based music producer, artist, and elegant dancer Treneti, is that spellbinding song with luscious vocals you have only dreamed of before. With her calming 420-friendly energy that transmits only peace and love, this is a mind-soaring effort that takes you into a more elevated place than before.

Jazz musician, composer and producer, Daniel Ben Mortiz released his latest single, Beso Solar, on September 30th; while the blissful tones induce you into a state of entrancement, the complex time signatures in the organic, almost primal soundscape have the opposite effect as they affirm that your rhythmic pulses are well and truly at the command of Mortiz and his unpredictably arresting progressions.

What starts as a lofty and meditative soundscape transgresses into a bassline-driven feat of improvised jazz and funk alchemy that won’t fail to leave your consciousness entirely consumed.

Beso Solar is now available to stream on YouTube.

Featuring a wonderfully old school big drum percussion and a shake-your-body soundscape to you get into the mood, NiraN takes us back to a much simpler time on ‘A Night In Vice‘.

NiraN is the solo project of worldly experienced EDM producer/musician Farhan Saleem. He makes that supremely taste-filled ambient, deep house and chill type of music, that has you reaching for those shades and cold beverage to enjoy his busty beats.

Having lived in different parts of the globe, I have always listened to, been inspired by / and tried to incorporate music and inspiration from all over the world in my music”. – NiraN

The thumping beat transforms your mind and takes you to a new place that you perhaps wanted to go, but didn’t quite get to. The consistent bass and glassy-feel has you feeling re-energized and full of life again. The song slows down beautifully in the middle – as the warping energy sinks your doubts away into the quick-sand below, and takes you to a happy planet far away from the current madness.

A Night In Vice‘ from the talented globetrotting EDM artist, bassist and guitarist NiraN, brings us back to a place where things were alive and a night out must of been something you never could forget. The mood is lit with possibilities here, and this is a real beach party must-have when things in this crazy world, go back to almost-normal again.

Pablo Ojeda’s latest single “Greasy” oozes contemporary Funk appeal

Funk Bassist Pablo Ojeda released their 6-track EP Gotta Move on July 17th. While each of the instrumental tracks is sure to be a hit with any fans of Jazz Funk, the perfect introduction to their almost impossibly smooth style is “Greasy”.

Greasy may seem like a strange choice for a bass-led Jazz Funk mix, but once you’re half-way through, you’ll notice that your consciousness has already been consumed by the mesmeric unpredictable progressions which in true Jazz style, throw time signatures out of the window.

There may be plenty of nostalgia to be found in Greasy, but there’s no disputing that it’s a modernistic soundscape which oozes contemporary Funk appeal. Get it in your ears.

You can check out Pablo Ojeda’s single Greasy for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.
