Get a shot of entrancing EDM ecstasy from YAZ’s fiercely sonic mix ‘Judgement’

Starting off with a fiercely sonic blast of Techno, YAZ’s standout track ‘Judgement’ from her 2020 EP Eternity will remind you why you fell in love with EDM in the first place. The entrancement, the aural ecstasy, the ability to surrender your rhythmic pulses and accept that for the next few minutes, the music is going to take control while your synapses become ensnared by the danceable high-octane beats.

The instrumental mix needs no lyrics to feed emotion or feeling. Unrelenting momentum blazes all throughout Judgement, instead of waiting for the drop, each second of the mix will implant euphoria.

Menna bring us quality uplifting track ‘Feel This Way’

Menna is here with lots of bouncy tech house on the new single with stunning male and female vocals on ‘Feel This Way‘.

This is all about having fun together and not taking things too seriously. Life is wild right now and falling in love is the last thing on your mind as you just want to enjoy yourself and be happy. This is a mainstream driven track with heavenly vocals, polished off with a heavy hitting, festival rocking drop. The beat is scrumptious and has zero assumptions. There is a contemporary style here that makes me want to dance all night, all sweaty on the dance floor.

Menna brings his a-game on this ripping beat that catches your attention all the way through. A marvelous fusion of powerful vocals really impresses all listeners and I love this fine track.

Feel This Way‘ from Menna is one of the best dance songs that have been released in 2020 due to the quality production. After the success of debut ‘Sunset‘, this should be a new favorite on playlists all over the world.

Digital Head morph the speakers into our brains on fantastic ‘To Whom it May Concern’

Electronica beats with a catchy flow is the name of the game here from the mysterious producer named Digital Head as he drops his latest album called ‘To Whom it May Concern‘.

Now living in Austin, Texas, Digital Head has used his platform wisely as an artist to contribute to indie creative projects, with his last album raising funds for charity donations. A fine deed indeed.

To Whom it May Concern‘ is the fantastic third album to come from the wildly wonderful experimental artist Digital Head. Viewing this album as the third installment of the trilogy, ‘To Whom it May Concern‘ progresses the personal story of Digital Head as well as considering the effects of the divisive politics currently at play in America, and in the world more widely.

Growing up playing piano and drums, Digital Head has always had a fierce passion for creating great music. Releasing his first single at the age of 15 as an indie artist, he has since gone on to release two albums.

The highlights of this powerful album are definitely ‘Without You‘, ‘Permission‘ and ‘I Surrender‘. The beat is hauntingly ominous and the vocals stunning. You feel like you are in a different world and floating in the sky like a skydiver who just cruises in the air. My body feels relaxed and I let the beat take me to a different world. The skills on the production are quite wonderful.

Digital Head’s ‘To Whom it May Concern‘ is a tech house/edm wonder-wall of beauty and thoughtfulness. This is music that needs to be in movies and this is cinematic dream. One of the best albums of 2020 in the dance category without doubt.

A combination of sounds intertwined, from Tech House, Underground, Club and Dance, it’s safe to say Liquid Trax sure knows how to make a killer beat and one that is pleasant to listen too. Each track offers a variety of elements, you have some shrieking noises, and then the atmosphere begins to gain it’s suspense as the sound begins to become distorted, then you get hit with the crazy energetic melody.

The thing about this anthology is that each piece on it is so different and that’s what makes it interesting to listen too. With a range of sound effects and infectious rhythms, it’s easy to get lost in the dynamic that has been put into this to create such an insane tune.

Definitely give this one a listen too and let it take you on a journey through the world of sound effects and up-beat rhythms.

Not Together by House producer Paul Costello featuring Abigail Bailey & ItsAllAboutAaron: A tale of lost love and loneliness

Not Together, a house track produced by Paul Costello, sounds very nineties in its composition.  Throughout the piece there is a narrative, told in masculine and feminine voices, about lost love and how both participants have only found loneliness since becoming separated from one another.

The song talks of two lovers, who felt complete by simply being together, that have been left with palpable feelings of regret because they failed to say what was needed when their relationship fell into ruin.

Repetition, in words and music, work well for this minimalist track that shows our protagonists will never know they share an identical feeling of regret.

There is a sense of grief, for words left unsaid, laid down in lyrics that feel calm despite talk of surviving stormy weather. Both parties know they’ve lost something, pieces of themselves that made them better people, and are trying to become whole again.

For many of us, the subject matter contained within this track is all too relatable.

Darth Athena – Plasmagoria: A Tech House Playlist Essential

Breaking Tech House artist Darth Athena dropped yet another sublime mix “Plasmagoria” onto the airwaves in November 2019.

Their ability to blend shimmering bright transcendental textures with harsh smacks of bass in a constantly evolving House mix is like nothing we’ve heard from any other electronic artist this year. It comes as no surprise that the Atlanta-based producer finds his inspiration from an array of sources, from darkwave to fantasy soundtracks to RnB.

Plasmagoria is a mould-breaking melting pot of danceable euphoric rhythm. From sonic blasts to tribal rhythm you’ll find all that and more in Plasmagoria. It doesn’t just offer high-octane energy, but captivating high-octane emotion too.

You can check out Plasmagoria for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
