Digitalism-Wolves

No intro or build, just immediate bass. The bass is strong but not obnoxious or overpowering, it’s smooth and infectious – creating an intriguing backdrop for the rest of the song. I start by mentioning the bass line because it’s what made my ears perk up and take notice of the song in the first place. The vocals, provided by Young Blood Hawke are smooth and subtle, while choppy synthesizers hit hard mimicking the tempo of the bass. Combine the elements of Wolves and your product is that of a funky, indie-dance banger. Young Blood Hawke’s pitchy vocals make this track fun and bring the energy needed to match the heavily produced track. I’ve had my eye on Digitalism for a few years now as they’ve attracted some well known DJ’s to remix their tracks (Dillon Francis, Eric Prydz) and this tune, in my opinion surpasses any previous production I’ve heard by the German electro duo. Listen below and see for yourself.

Galantis-Runaway-U-I-2014-1500x1500

A strange blend of blaring piano chords and auto tune with a voice reminiscent of Florence & The Machine, Galantis takes progressive house, a genre stigmatized of simplicity to a whole different world. I can’t say this song is groundbreaking, but what I can say is that the combination of musical elements heard here is something my ears have yet to enjoy. Piano in EDM, boring – auto tune in EDM, it’s everywhere. What made me give this song a second listen and eventually love it was the combination of the two and the way her voice seamlessly ebbs and flows between syrupy vocals and squeaky auto tune, it’s captivating. The powerful bass line/piano combination creates a massive backdrop for the vocals adding to the overall euphoric feeling of the song, finishing it off beautifully. Simple and powerful with intricate elements flawlessly intertwined throughout the song, RUNAWAY (U&I) is fun and fearless, you’ll want to get up out of your seat at work, kick your shoes off and shake your body like you never have before. Watch the fun video below and tell us what you think.
