In this column, I cover songs for you to nod your head to in the EDM scene [electronic dance music, not extra dancey music, for those not in the know]. Event alert: the Forecast calls for some seriously dark beat formations and overcast conditions as a result of a major bass block moving through the area.
- Nina Simone – “Feel Good [Skyphos Remix]”
Dutch producer Skyphos gives us a soul-stirrin’ minimalist remix of an already impossibly beautiful original; the track reverberates with an air of feel good.
- Ben Khan – “Drive [Part 1]“
Taking a page out of Jai Paul’s hipstertronica book, London-based producer Ben Khan knows how to marry breathy, yearning vocals with bedroom [DJ] beats. Sexy results.
- Amerie – “One Thing [BLACKSOUL Remix]“
An ebullient, jaunty remix of the original..
- PhLo DeLi – “4:37 am“
Plainly put–some excellent MCing.
- CFCF – “Camera“
A captivating track from Montreal-based producer CFCF. Sounds like Explosions In The Sky.
