Philip STEVENSON – Where’s My Mind? featuring Emarie:

https://spoti.fi/2TCTCCa

If you’re always on the lookout for new nostalgic Trance-laced House mixes to get your euphoric fix, look no further than the standout release “Where’s My Mind?” from EDM artist and producer Philip STEVENSON.

Even though there’s plenty of accessibility within the mix which will throw you right back to the golden era of Trance, there’s also a heavy serving of spacey futurism. The effortlessly smooth vocals from Emarie brought transcendent energy to Where’s My Mind? and made it all too easy to get caught up in the mellifluous danceable rhythms.

While it felt that there was an excess of reverb and effects in part, the structure and momentum put behind Where’s My Mind is an affirmation that the up and coming EDM producer has plenty to offer to the airwaves.

EDM Artist Guy Metter has made their debut with the experimentally bold single “Last Night”

With the spoken-word narrative which sits synergistically against the groove-deep beats in Guy Metter’s mesmerising Alt Electronica debut “Last Night (We Took Over a Jazz Club)” there was an intensity to the sound like we’d never heard before.

Your mind is split between wanting to follow the intricate and boldly experimental instrumental Jazz & Funk-soaked progressions and wanting to hear how the compelling narrative story ends. Neither of them disappointed.

The lyrics perfectly captured that all too familiar sense of guilt which follows hedonistic indulgence. With a sensual versing and just as much sensuality from the beats, Last Night is a single we’re definitely not going to forget in a hurry.

San Pedro Collective – Where Do I Begin: Entrancingly Atmospheric Acid House

San Pedro Collective

San Pedro Collective are due to drop their hotly anticipated Dance hit “Where Do I Begin” in February 2020 and blast the airwaves with an arrestive revival of those nostalgic 90s Acid House tones which would have sat the Hacienda alight.

The Hacienda may be long gone (well, it’s a block of flats now), but the Manchester-based collective’s sound is well and truly alive with vibrant sensuous mesmerism which hooks more than your mind into the seamlessly orchestrated and produced beats. Sarah Bouchier’s harmonically hypnotic vocals resonate like they were born to dominate a mix such as Where Do I Begin.

Starting off as a sensually mellifluous atmospheric soundscape, the progressive mix amasses momentum through the deft switch-ups until you reach the breakdown. A breakdown momentous enough to affirm that if any up and coming artist has what it takes to create a charting EDM floor-filler it’s San Pedro Collective.

You’ll have to wait until February 22nd to check out Where Do I Begin for yourselves. In the meantime, head over to Facebook and keep up to date with news of the release. And check out the standout track The Things You See from their Debut EP via YouTube.

PvssyCat – The Pvssycat Project: Ingeniously Crafted EDM Hip Hop Insanity

If you like to know where tracks are going to take you from the first time of listening, PvssyCat’s debut album “The PvssyCat Project” definitely isn’t for you. Alternatively, if you love nothing more than ingeniously crafted aural insanity, prepare to be blown away.

The majority of music which we hear usually merges at least two genres together. But you’ve never heard experimentalism quite like this before. Context-less vocal samples weave their way into the mix as the futuristic EDM Hip Hop instrumentals carve plenty of their own insanity.

There’s no way of knowing where the mercilessly fast-paced bass-soaked tracks will take you next. But if one thing is strikingly clear, it’s that this up and coming artist is worth having on your radar. Especially if you’re as keen as us to stick your teeth into truly distinctive tracks.

FELICITY GROOM – Burj Khalifa: Mind-Meltingly Arrestive House Groove Indie Pop  

FELICITY GROOM

Is there any better feeling than hitting play on a single and feeling a jolt of awe, curiosity and beguilement? It may not happen often, but you’ll get a potent amount of mesmerism from FELICITY GROOM’s single Burj Khalifa.

The genre-defying soundscape can loosely be defined as House Groove Pop. Yet the soundscape resonates as illimitable from the first verse. And that’s before you’ve been treated to the varying evolutions in the consistently captivating single. Despite its lucidity and easily ingestible ambience, it packs a punch.

You’ll have to wait a little longer to listen to Burj Khalifa for yourselves. It is due to be released in early 2020 along with the rest of FELICITY GROOM’s third studio album. You can check out their earlier releases via their website.

George Beck – 90s/High: Nostalgic 90s Vocal Techno/House

George Beck dropped a music video for his song “90s/High” earlier this year. The title track couldn’t have been more self-explanatory: The nostalgia for the 90s rave dance scene kicks in vividly.

And the dance scene isn’t the only item that George Beck sings about in this old-school acid house/techno anthem. He is reciting his lyrics in an Underworld-style delivery, recollecting all the good stuff from the nineties, the clubbing and this song maker’s carefree youth and dominance of free will – representing a whole generation of people for that matter. Realizing that this is a contemporary recording is quite odd; the same goes for the VHS-imagery music video.

Naturally, this is a creation which shall generously give joy to people that dearly treasure these images, this mood, this lifestyle, even though this spiritual wealth might have been transformed to nothing more than a block of memories. Kudos to George Beck for blessing us with some precious name-dropping; everyone who was there/familiar with it all, will acknowledge and instinctively smile, for the rest there’s Wikipedia.

Thank you George Beck. This is “90s/High”, get nostalgic here

Ian Edson – Elevate: Euphorically Sonic House

With their latest mix “Elevate”  up and coming LA-based producer Ian Edson has given Tech heads another reason to include his House mixes on their playlists.

The high-octane sonic floor filler utters the simple mantra of ‘Elevate’ over the simple, yet extremely effective danceable rhythm. The anticipation is set for the euphoric breakdowns by inventive uses of phasers creating drawn-out caustic sweeping effects throughout the mix.

Elevate may be slightly darker and harsher than your average House mix, but it still does exactly what it says on the tin.
