Castle On The Hill (Seeb Remix) – Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran recently committed the heinous crime of becoming popular. Self-proclaimed music aficionados all over the country decided that was the final straw and threw his albums in the bin. But regardless of whether you’re a fan or not, this Ed Sheeran remix is the type to get even the biggest haters tapping their feet. Seeb are a Norwegian DJ trio, famed for their remix of Mike Posner’s, I Took A Pill In Ibiza, which topped global charts last year.
Spook City – Moses Gunn Collective
Moses Gunn are an eclectic, psychedelic band from Brisbane, Australia who have so little information about them online that it’s very difficult to write a bio.
They released their debut album, Mercy Mountain, in 2015 and have since released a couple of new singles which they are hoping to promote by having zero internet presence. Seriously though, their music is a nice refreshing blend of guitar licks, synth and psychedelia which are ever-present in this track.
Just – Bicep
Bicep are a DJ duo from Belfast who started off as music bloggers, posting old and obscure disco and electronic records to their site which attracted over 100,000 visitors a month. They took this passion and began doing DJ sets supporting big name artists such as Skrillex before making and remixing their own tunes . This tune is an outstanding piece of electro-house that builds as it progresses and really showcases what the duo are all about.
Upswing – Prinze George
Prince George are the latest band to come out of the synth-pop revival of the last decade, and boy have they nailed it. This track is taken from their 2015 self-titled EP and offers dreamy vocals merged with well-crafted electronics. The New York band have just released their debut album, Illiterate Synth Pop, and what a talent they are.
Portions for Foxes – Rilo Kiley
Rilo Kiley aren’t exactly new but if you haven’t heard them before you should definitely venture into their back catalogue. The band have unfortunately split up now but that doesn’t stop you discovering their 5 superb albums. The indie-folk band from Los Angeles have had their music featured on numerous films and popular series over the past 15 years so they’re well recognised. I would recommend getting stuck into their 2004 album, More Adventurous, for some good summer listening.
