PowerStateFailure – The Selector: A Hauntingly Fitting Acid House Tribute to Andrew Weatherall

Just one minute into PowerStateFailure’s latest single “The Selector (A Tribute to Andrew Weatherall)”, tears affirmed just how fitting the ode was.

For those unaware, Andrew Weatherall was a British artist, DJ, producer and a pivotal part of the Acid House movement in the 80s. His tragic passing in February 2020 made us all too aware of how much he contributed to the music industry. His deft touch was put upon cult classics by artists such as Happy Mondays, New Order, Primal Scream and My Bloody Valentine.

After hearing PowerStateFailure’s tribute, I’m fairly sure Acid House Electronica has never come with such a pensively arresting feel. The Selector perfectly captures the industrious grassroots energy which surrounded the take-off of the Acid House era. It’s a nostalgia trip of how much life Acid House brought to the bleak Thatcher years. Yet, the single sits perfectly on contemporary airwaves and playlists.

With the haunting atmospheric tones, this reflective tribute will leave a lingering resonance long after the 6-minute track has faded to a close.

From polyphonic key solos to Hip Hop-style grooves to moodily convictive Alt Pop vocals, Get Out the House contains it all plus plenty of other intricate nuances which affirm that Loosh puts innovation and expression at the forefront when writing their tracks.

If you’re as tired as assimilative uninspired music as I am, go and restore your faith in contemporary musicians. It may have been bad timing to release a track called Get Out of the House just before the world went into lockdown mode. Yet, we can appreciate the sentiment all the same.

Isolda – Winter: An enthralling new EDM and Dance single

‘’Winter’’ the new single by London-based artist Isolda is a mixture of EDM and Dance intertwining together to create this dark yet fascinating track.

With a very rare vocal range like no other, Isolda sure knows how to sing in such a bewildering way, there’s high-pitch tones but also low and then there’s the hard-hitting high notes that are sung in such an confounding way, this track definitely deserves a lot of recognition.

The melody that flows alongside Isolda’s vocals gives it it’s EDM sound as it is a lot more up-beat, but even though the vocals are a lot lower the rhythm collides so well.

It’s so special in its own way, it’s not something you hear all the time and it’s certainly not generic in any way, it really does show how much this single deserves to be a hit.

Winter shows of the talent that Isolda has with the vocal aspects but not only that the way in which the overall sound of the track sounds. Definitely one that stands out in so many ways and one that you must delve into.

Caribbean Roots and Hard Dance Beats Clash in JP Backhouse’s Viral Worthy Track “OMG”

If it has been a while since you discovered an EDM artist which left you instantly obsessed with their sound, pointing you towards JP Backhouse’s latest Hard Dance mix “OMG” would lead you in exactly the right direction.

The Curacao-born artist used the influence of Caribbean and Latin Rhythms in their hard and driving mix which would melt the minds and arrest the bodies of anyone lucky enough to be on a dancefloor when it drops.

You’ll also pick up on a few borrowed elements of Hip Hop which infuses even more adrenalizing momentum into the colossal mix. OMG is pretty much the definition of aural insanity. There’s something insanely infectious about the meeting of exotic sunny rhythms and the stylistic European EDM tones. The two genres have never merged quite like this before.

Talented producer Dylan Drendel – ‘Ocean’: As funky as it is cool!

This inspired and confident offering from Dylan Drendel is aptly named. It brings to mind everything that is magical and serene about the Ocean. The musicianship is spectacular in that it pulses with life, at a tempo that is reminiscent of a heartbeat, and the hypnotising classical piano breathes, like a prayerful chant throughout. Dylan digs deep and musically characterises a pulsating, connected, primordial under water organism.

This track is superb in its simplicity and subtlety, and takes no small amount of expert craftsmanship to pull off, but its fair to say that Dylan ’s understated thought process culminates in a luxuriously decadent and calming end product.

Let’s not get it twisted though. Soul is at the very heart of this creation and this track is no shrinking violet. You will want to tap your foot and move to it. It is as funky as it is cool and Dylan has been able to artfully balance the ethereal nature of the theme with soft EDM hooks and baselines. He effortlessly displays an ingenious level of versatility that is hard to ignore.

You’ll definitely want to check out ‘Ocean’ by Dylan Drendel at Spotify. Let us know know what you think. Enjoy!

Producer Glahz releases Experimental new single ‘Senses’

Electronica, Trap, and Techno all rolled into one for this latest single by Mexico-based DJ Glahz who has just released his new track ‘’Senses’’.

From beginning to end there is always something different, it starts off with a slow tempo and within seconds it emerges into an electronic dynamic, making sure to get a full variety of unique techno sounds to intertwine into the beat.

It has this uplifting sound and there is always suspense as you listen to the eerie background noise that leads into these insane breakdowns. When it starts to become more upbeat you can hear multiple sound effects and styles that have emerged into this track, from static TV, sirens, radio alerts, to high-pitched shrieking noises.

Towards the end is when you really hear the trap elements take over, vocals flow throughout as the pitch begins to get higher and the noise begins to become distorted, then the tempo begins to lower abruptly as the track comes to an end.

Glahz has created something that shows he can make an infectious track that will make you feel good.

If you want to you can now stream Senses by heading over to Soundcloud.
