NO SLEEP - MARTIN GARRIX, BONN
“No Sleep” is a driving ethereal track that captures the Dutch DJ’s strongest points - his ability to transform emotion into a musical adventure and his restless talent. Bonn’s vocal performance complements the stellar production of the song smoothly.
PEER PRESSURE - JAMES BAY, JULIA MICHAELS
“Peer Pressure” is what you could call a love song - bringing past experiences to life to tell the stories of the present. The rather simple production of the song allows the vocals of both artists to shine brightly, which ultimately become the highlight of this release.
WAKE UP - MIKE MAGO
Continuing the EDM mood of this list, “Wake Up” makes well-thought-of musical references to the past while connecting them to the present, resulting in this divine electronic adventure. The song’s melody, driven mainly by a synthesizer, even gets funky at some point!
SHAPES IN THE SUN - ALLMAN BROWN
When we met Allman Brown in September, he said that a new album might be coming soon - and he wasn’t lying. “Shapes in the Sun” finds the singer in a calmer mood vocally - although the majestic melody gives the song a grand momentum feeling. We couldn’t be more excited for the record to drop!
NOT GIVING IN - TOM WALKER
“Not Giving In” is a confident statement about self-discovery and fighting for one’s cause. Musically, the track finds synergy between the indie-genres and gives a great preview of the singer’s next album. We can’t help but think that this could be a perfect score for an adventure movie!
TEARS - NILÜFER YANYA
“Tears” finds the singer in an unapologetic mood - her delicate and soulful voice shares her thoughts wrapped around an electronic melody. The lyrics are presented in a humble yet confident fashion.
