Frankmusik – ‘Going Under’

As you probably know by now, we’re big supporters of Frankmusik (check out our interview) and if his latest single (‘Going Under’) is anything to go by, that’s not going to dwindle any time soon.

The electronic artist has been going it alone, without a label, for some time and he’s still producing incredible music, growing and developing his sound with each and every release. The singer’s latest track is very different from his previous releases and has a much for edgy, underground vibe to it, but it’s epic – the instrumental drop is sick beyond belief; I defy anyone not to start skanking out to it!

Bring on the new music and the first of 2 EPs this year, SS17, on June 17th 2017!


‘Going Under’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/going-under-single/id1220779282



Disciples – ‘On My Mind’

Our second track today is ‘On My Mind’ by London-based trio, Disciples (consisting of Nathan Vincent Duvall, Gavin Koolmon, and Luke McDermott).

The trio’s deep house song, is somehow relaxing yet at the same time, danceable. It’s got a late-night summer feel to it. It’s the kind of track that would keep you going well into the early hours especially with the combination of harmonised vocals, repeating, “On my mind” – it’s truly quite entrancing.

This is a fantastic song; one I could quite happily listen to on repeat, for hours!


‘On My Mind’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/on-my-mind/id1203282773?i=1203283073

#MuzikSpeaks: An Interview with Platnum

Aaron Evers and Michelle McKenna from Platnum took the time to do a Skype interview with us, and they were awesome!



We’re back with another interview, and this time, it’s with Platnum.

Having taken a short break from music, they’re back, as a duo, and getting ready to tour in January 2016.

The pair (who rose to fame in 2008, with their H “Two” O collaboration, ‘What’s It Gonna Be’) have been taking some time to work on new music. Their first garage/bassline anthem became huge and having spoken to them, they inform me that their new music will see a return to their musical roots, while still remaining commercial.

I had such an amazing time interviewing Aaron and Michelle – they were a real laugh and so nice!

Continuing from the tradition set in our previous ZebraheadFrankmusik and Life Of Dillon interviews, we asked Platnum to take part in a game of ‘Would You Rather…?’ – however, Aaron decided they should throw themselves straight into the WTF?! (#WYRwtf) level…brave!

I really hope that you will enjoy watching this interview as I had a great time talking to them and please, please go ahead and share this link and video on your social media accounts!

MNEK is a Grammy-nominated, British singer, songwriter and producer, and Zara Larsson is a Swedish singer; the winner of Talang (Sweden’s version of Britain’s Got Talent). The pair have teamed up to create this infectious, dubstep/house/trap tune!

It reached Number 1 on the UK Dance Charts and is certified as platinum in Sweden.

The music video is beautifully shot – the pair perform in the stunning scenery of Iceland and it follows the story of a girl who meets a rather adorable creature/makes up an imaginary friend – it’s great!

Happy #WildCardWednesday! What do you think of the song/video? Please leave your song choice for the day in a comment below or Facebook/Tweet us!

#StrangeSunday: The 1975 – ‘Love Me’ & Skrillex – ‘Summit’ featuring Ellie Goulding

Today I’m having a bit of a #StrangeSunday because I’m loving two completely opposing sorts of tracks; The 1975 just released their new single, from their forthcoming second album, I Like It When You Sleep – For You Are So Beautiful – Yet So Unaware Of It, called ‘Love Me’ and although on first listen I wasn’t sure about it, I’m actually excited about this new direction for them and can’t wait to see them live in November!

My opposing track is ‘Summit’ by Skrillex, featuring Ellie Goulding, taken from 2011’s ‘Bangarang EP’. The song is combination of electronica, EDM and pop, all at their best. The cut-up samples of Sonny’s voice are amazing and the song builds progressively in anticipation of Ellie Goulding’s voice which is just the icing on the cake. It’s a remarkable song and perfect for this calm and pleasant Sunday evening.

What do you think of my #StrangeSunday? Are you having the same sort of mash up of different songs? Please share them with us.

#WildCardWednesday: Disney’s The Lion King – ‘Circle Of Life (Mat Zo Remix)’

The Lion King Banner

The Lion King has surely got to be one of the most notable films Disney has ever released!

Although it was released back in 1994, it is memorable for its incredible soundtrack, featuring the writing talents of Elton John and Tim Rice, as well as its epically emotional scenes, when Mufasa is killed by Scar and its comedic scenes featuring the dynamic duo, Timon and Pumbaa!

Timon and Pumbaa were such a hit with audiences, that they went on to have their own spin-off series and the film went on to have two sequels.

This particular song, ‘Circle Of Life (Mat Zo Remix)’, has been chosen because of its interesting remix elements! Mat Zo is a Grammy-nominated producer and DJ from Britain and he’s done an excellent job of remixing this classic Disney song. He has combined elements of the original song with dubstep/drum & bass qualities. The video is pretty trippy and cool too!

What do you think of this intriguing remix? A fan or not? Got any other interesting tracks for our Disney-themed #WildCardWednesday? Please spread the love by sharing the link to this post.

#WildCardWednesday: SBTRKT – ‘New Dorp. New York’ featuring Ezra Koenig

SBTRKT

SBTRKT is a stage name that allows the man behind it, Aaron Jerome, to produce his music somewhat anonymously. His identity is covered by a futuristic re-design of a ‘native society ceremonial mask’. This modern aesthetic to SBTRKT continues…

… His songs are bass heavy as they drift around some R&B, House and Dubstep genres. However, the overall simplicity to the style of music causes the so-called dubstep to still be enjoyable without hurting your ears (as dubstep can sometimes do!).

Minimalistic sounds and styles are something I come across a lot with modern producers, yet SBTRKT has found a way of making dubstep – a genre of layers and layers of different instrumentation, to create a large overall composition – to sound much more simple and upbeat in its own way.

To compliment the calming futuristic-funk sounds, ‘New Dorp. New York’ (which features Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend) has a pretty awesome animated video too!

#WildCardWednesday: Jack Ü – ‘Where Are Ü Now’ featuring Justin Bieber

Jack Ü Banner

For this week’s #WildCardWednesday we bring you Jack Ü!

Jack Ü is an american duo, consisting of producing legends Skrillex (aka Sonny Moore) and Diplo (aka Thomas Pentz), who formed their side-project, Jack Ü, back in 2013. They are considered to be a mixture of Trap and Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

Their most recent release is ‘Where Are Ü Now’ which features guest vocals from Justin Bieber; whatever you think of Biebs, this track is awesome and his vocals are pretty remarkable. The track has actually had quite a positive response recently, peaking No. 5 in the UK charts, so far.

As of yet, the song has no official video, though on is in the works. However, Justin Bieber has released a home-made video for the track on his official YouTube account (see below).

Anyway, this tune is huge, so crank it loud – it’s killer!

What do you think of this song? Are you a fan? Was Justin Bieber a good choice of vocalist for the track? Please share our link on Twitter and Facebook.
