So here’s this oddly fascinating project called USE back again! Those who we’ve followed with increased excitement over their first two releases.
But, sadly I have to admit that I felt an element of disappointment over this release. Continue reading USE – Face Matter: A matter of disappointment
Here’s a track that’s just plain gorgeous. Press play and let it enter your life, enjoy the duration!
Melancholic, yet with hope. All is not lost. And especially the buildup of the strings towards the end… I mean, come on. This is just fantastic, isn’t it? Continue reading Skekz – “Terminus”: An orchestral moment of melancholic beauty
Today I’ve picked two tracks that are of a downtempo nature, and quite original. One from an artist that is well on the way of being established, the other from an artist at the very beginning of his career.
Both with releases that we’d love to play in our imaginary lounge club! Continue reading Double Downtempo: Two unique moments of lesser energy
Time to again enjoy the calm, classy house beats. These two fine tracks go well together.
