Every week, Free scours through hundreds of SoundCloud tracks to find the best new gems by artists that are flying under the radar.
Each week our Brussels-based fellow overwhelms you with a variety of songs that make your head go nuts. This week, he offers us a playlist with a summer vibe! Here are a few of his favorites:
As sure you can be the best pop comes from Sweden, that how it’s a certainty the best weird electropop find its origin in Canada. TR/ST is one of my all time favorites and with “Bicep”, he’s going more coldwave than ever. The fast rhythmic baseline, ominous dark synths draped with the shrill-ish voice of Robert Alfons bring enough new and classic TR/ST elements to call it one of his best songs ever.
Kedr Livanskiy – Ariadna / Love & Cigarettes:
Since her marvellous debut EP “January Sun”, Yana Kedrani aka Kedr Livanskiy is one of my new favourite ambient though melodic electronic singers/producers. Not as catchy and straightforward as Kelly Lee Owens but compensating with lots of weirdness and dusty noises – recalling the early Grimes – she sounds very ‘now’, as even the dreampop shoegaze influences are there. “Ariadna” is the melancholic though euphoric sad song of the two, “Love & Cigarettes” the opening song at a dark hipster club.
mgz – Iphone True Love:
My discovery of this week: YOUNG VIBEZ. A Spanish collective/label mixing latin American uplifting vibes with the new hipster-gabber trend. Not a lot is known about the collective, but I wanna dance on their VIBEZZZZ.
