In #Gimme5 today, shift your ears over to Azad, WYOMI, Pusher, Sweekuh and Toby & Lucian.
Azad‘s intense, deadpan delivery on “Enough Of You” is compelling enough by itself, but a series of official remixes for the track give it several different takes. Stockholm-based WYOMI twists the track into an all-absorbing future bass hit with its glitchy, big synth characteristics. The future bass scene is definitely getting oversaturated with dudes trying to make the next banger, but WYOMI’s use of future bass elements in this remix actually sounds refreshing. Vibrant and spirited, this remix manages to slip Azad’s voice in and around its melodic progressions, and is a fun one to listen to.
This track from Lucian caught my ears for the graceful sounding melodic dips of vocalist Coyote. The main melody is really catchy, and truly helped this Lucian track stand out for its unconventional sound. It’s cool how Coyote‘s doesn’t just topline for some electronic track underneath, but her vocals are actually utilized to the max in this track. Above else, Coyote’s vocals sound like a very niche instrument that also propels the track forwards beyond more traditional vocalist soloing.
Not too familiar with Pusher‘s work, but this track is so fucking weird. In a good way, which is why I’m covering this track in a Gimme5 post, but definitely a step up from the typical stuff that gets sent to our inbox. Push Push gives off these serious Azealia Banks or M.I.A. vibes with her voice, and the odd, gritty production does a good job driving the energetic momentum of the track. It’s a good daily dose of savage, so everyone could do with a couple listens or two of this track to spice up their day.
Wheee this electro-pop track is fun. The muted vocals that open up the beginning quickly take a dive into pop vocal territory with Cosmos & Creature (composed of Molly Moore and Brandyn Burnette). The production is spicy, to characterize it in one word. It’s got that electric-tinged edge to make “How We Do” energetic enough to bump to in your car or at a party, but also settles down well too– ending on the strum of a guitar and the humming vocals that opened the track. A job well done for Sweekuh‘s debut track.
Toby is a London producer who has been hard at work on perfecting his debut EP. With this first track, “17”, Toby has created a bouncy, truly delightful summery track that escapes the big-sounding influences of some of Toby’s inspirations like Flume. Instead, “17” is a quirky, lighthearted track that works with vocal chops and various samples here and there to make it a more intimate experience for those who listen.
