Alex Young is at it again with his latest release titled “SWTRWTHR” and as the title suggests, its a cozy smooth song that you can listen to while glimpsing into the grey skies with your sweater on. The track heavily samples The Neighborhood’s commercially successful single sweater weather. The track’s genre is self titled by Alex Young as “Hood Euphoric” and you get a sense of that with the composition of the track. The song is very progressive with smooth melodic synths. The track keeps a smooth style that eventually breaks down into a bass hip hop beat, then transitions back into the smooth melody. this is a must track to have in your music player. So make sure to get your free download as of today!

If this track doesn’t get you whistling along and shaking those teriyaki-marinaded pork loins you call a booty, it’s probably because you haven’t turned your speaker on yet. Wave Racer knocks it out of the park again.

 

PS. Com Truise does a beauty flip of this too.

This is one of the most haunting tracks I’ve heard all year. Melissa’s melody grabs your attention and fills you with emotion. STERT throws in some IDM that raises the atmosphere even more. STERT’s sound design is top notch and I hope these two will be collaborating again sometime in the future!

We all know the beard of What So Not, Emoh Instead, for things such as this Sir Mix Alot banger and playing the chicken dance at Stereosonic, but truth be told we’ve never gotten in touch with his sensitive side.

 

Until now.

 

His remix of vocalist rose is a sultry California disco-style affair. You know, the kind that rearranges the alphabet and puts U and I together, then looks deeply into your eyes and strokes your hair ever so gently… Wait, did I just say that out loud?

handwritten letter

To the salacious among you,

My name is Max and I have a confession. I’m new to the Salacious Sound team and find myself with the distinct feeling that I’ve finally moved on.

You see, I used to write for another blog called VacayWave. It introduced me to the magic that is music blogging – that sense of discovery, of landing on the right song, turning up the speakers and seeing what words might fall from your fingers. And then of sharing it with all of you and hoping your ears taste the same thing mine did when you hear it.

But as all first loves do, Vacay faded into oblivion. And now, about two years later, Salacious Sound has swooped right in and filled a blog-shaped hole in my heart.

Anyway, that’s my baggage. I respect you and thought you deserved to know. Beyond that, I can think of no better way to introduce myself than to finally cut to the chase and share a few of the songs I’ve had on repeat recently. Hope you like them.

With love,
Swedish

 

This song sounds: Too pretty to be true

 

This song sounds: Troublingly positive

 

This song sounds: Like a log cabin on fire in the woods

 

This song sounds: Like things could be better

 

This song sounds: Apocalyptic

Friends, amigos, mes amis!

I am PontDesArts, the latest addition to the Salacious Sound crew. I’m an avid music-lover, and I share my time between Stockholm and Paris. Consequently, a substantial amount of my posts will deal with artists figuring on the local scenes in my two hometowns. I have a broad taste in music and I find it difficult to limit myself to any specific genere, but you can expect to find quite a few words about electronic pop and dance music in my writing. Bellow is a taste of what I’m listening to at the moment, and I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do!

 

Postiljonen is a rising star on the Swedish pop scene:

 

Rodriguez Jr. is arguably the best house producer coming out of France at the moment:

 

German Disco/House heavyweight Tensnake‘s latest single was premiered by Annie Mac on BBC radio a few days ago:

 

Wayward is an up-and-coming duo from the UK, and their latest track has been in my headphones for a few days now:

 

HVOB from Austria just released a new EP and the title track ‘Lion’ is definitely worth hearing:

When I posted the original video for Jacuzzi’s Exodus, I told you all it was immediately apparent that this dude knows his music theory like a stoner knows Dominos’ menu. I’ve been waiting for this EP for several months now, and it’s safe to say that it’s exceptional from all aspects. Production, composition, atmosphere- you name it. The Mizu EP sets its sights on a target and hits the mark exactly.

backstroke

 

 

Backstroke., a new producer from Washington, DC, first drew attention a couple months ago with his remix of Young Summer’s Waves That Rolled You Under. His latest – a mix of Tegan and Sara’s Closer - is of the same high caliber. The rework picks up the pace from the original, making it a far more versatile alternative. The vocals blend perfectly, and overall the track is very well-produced. Backstroke. has had an incredibly strong start, and I’d make sure to keep an eye on what’s to come.

Hey All,

It’s truly a shame that I set this one aside to review, but never did… until now! This track features a gorgeous vocal from Young Summer, that can just as easily be enjoyed during winter. Waves That Rolled me Under is one of those songs that takes you to another place, and sends chills down your spine!

Throw those headphones on, and let yourself roll away on the waves.

Citadel : The Remixes [EP Review]

Guten Tag!

I awoke to find this wonderful EP of Citadel songs waiting for me in my inbox this morning, and what a wonderful start to the morning it was. I clicked the link, and half an hour later, I had decided to skip my morning class (disclaimer, I do not endorse skipping classes). OK, let’s get to it:

Delving right in, we start with some real nice deep house from Kill Them With Colour. Their remix of Stand Next to Me is everything I like in a deep house song: a grooving bass line, interesting, yet subdued lyrics, and a beat that just keeps on building on itself, and then scaling back down. Snazzy. Real Snazzy.

Then we move over to another remix of Stand Next to Me, by Pretty Pink, which has a tech house feel. A simple, mesmerizing track that is sure to get the ol’ foot tapping, and head bobbin’. Standout section of the track for me is the whistled melody at the end. The reverb gives the whistling a gorgeous texture, and I wish there were more of it.

Moving into the remixes of Heartstrings, there is a little more diversity of genre. The third track of the EP, is a remix by No Big Deal. It starts out with, my favorite… more whistling, and progresses into a very nice electro section with very well-produced vocal samples. Then the lyrics and build-up to the electro house drop, the second half of which has a gorgeous layering of vocals and drop. This track packs so many different sections into 6 minutes, it always has a little layer that you missed the first time. Worth listening to several times to really savor all the complexity.

Lenny Skolnik’s remix is hard to label in terms of genre, but it’s gorgeous, and on Souncloud it’s tagged as “dope,” so I’ll go with that… His remix of Heartstrings has a nice downtempo feel, with some gorgeous (what sound like) harp samples. Major props for the harp samples, and also for the sexy breakdown at 2:18. Very well produced.

Finally, we have the most unique remix on the EP, by Evan Chapman. It’s unique because it doesn’t have any vocals directly sampled from the song. The entire melody, and some overlaid beats, are made by percussion, including the likes of xylophones, tambourines, and other assorted percussion (drums, stick clicks, etc…). This “cover” if you will, is very cool, and I love it because I forget that it’s electronic music. It sounds totally acoustic apart from a few effects, and that is original. Big ups to Evan Chapman.

Reviewing this EP was very satisfying because of the diversity of genre’s encompassed by the various remixes, and it also made me check out Citadel’s original music. The fact that they only have 10 followers on Soundcloud is a travesty, because their originals are equally superb as the remixes. Granted, it’s not electronic music, but it’s very good. So head over to their Soundcloud at your leisure and be sure to check out both the remixes and their originals.

ZD - Altered States

 

Toronto’s golden boys are headed to Sound Academy with their Altered States tour December 21st. This will be big. Zeds Dead’s production quality in the studio is far from a secret, and having caught them live on more than a few occasions, I can attest to the raw energy exchange between these two and their masses of fans as they smash out tunes on stage.

 

In case you didn’t know, they’ve gone the extra mile with sound and lighting as well. Take a peek!

 

No word on openers yet, but I strongly suggest you grab yourself a ticket while they last. Oh yeah… and I’ll be there for my birthday. Come buy me a drink ya bish.

Dr. Ozi

It’s always a good feeling supporting the local Toronto scene, and it’s guys like this who make it such an easy sell. A fitting title for the EP, Dr. Ozi have no doubt been on the rise in 2013 as they continue to perfect their particularly gritty brand of bass.

Showcasing a handful of fast paced originals, The Rise is highlighted by my pick of the bunch, Blood And Fire, built around the alluring vocals of Nikki Jumper. If you’re looking for a comparison… think deeper, darker Adventure Club.

 

Grab the EP on Beatport here.

Young guns The Chainsmokers’ roll of remixes continues with this flip of Fix This by The Colourist and damn, it’s a doozy. In fact, the only critique that I have is that after three listens through I’m now sporting a semi, but I can’t download it yet – what a tease.

 

Since TCS are running a selfie submission campaign for their latest original, #selfie, I couldn’t include a cheeky selfie of Alex down below for your eyes only.
