There have been a lot of good tunes coming out this year, it’s hard to keep up with everything getting released. Below is list of some of the tunes I’ve been into so far, and I’m looking forward to what the rest of 2011 has to offer. These are in no particular order!
• Headspin by HavocNdeeD featuring the vocals of Skaught Parry
Heavy, melodic and moody – just the way I like my tunes. I’m a big fan of vocals in electronic music, and not everyone can do it well, but I think Skaught and HavocNdeeD pulled this off with ease.
• Sexy Shapes by iONik
Glitched and skewed with some dope melodies and a solid vibe. Been diggin’ this one for a good minute and can’t wait to hear more for this producer.
• Cymbol Rush by Raoul Sinier
This one came out late January this year, and it’s a beautiful track. Excellent vocals, moody instrumentals and a pleasant listen.
• Minotaur (Stephan Jacobs Remix) by Kraddy
Bangin’! I loved the original tune by Kraddy, and this remix from Stephan Jacobs does it justice. I’ve been rocking to this one almost non-stop.
• Stacking by NastyNasty
Lasers tear through the beats on this low slung number by NastyNasty – Definitely the jam to have in your ride when cruising the strip.
• In Passing by Semiomime
Experimental, lush and dark – my kind of music. You may be more familiar with the name DJ Hidden, as Semiomime is his experimental music project. The detail in this tune is superb, and definitely deserves to be on my list of favorites for the year so far.
• Universal Symphony (Pixelord Remix) by Manni Dee
Manni Dee had a new release out recently on Vermin Street, which you can find by sifting through the blog, but this remix by Pixelord stood out as one of my favorite tunes. This guy has a great way of blending in 8bit sounds and chunky beats – definitely pick up this entire release.
