For his third original release of the year, dance pop standout OTR is teaming up with Jarrah McCleary’s Sydney-based synthpop group Panama for “Drive,” out now via Astralwerks. “Drive” is elegant and complex, firmly establishing OTR as one of the most introspective and forward-thinking producers around. It’s OTR at his deepest, combining his emotive, thought-provoking style with the comfort and simplicity of heartfelt lyricism. With delicacy and grace, OTR has breathed fresh air into dance music with an emphasis on being and feeling, rather than just listening. Radiating new dimensions of sensitivity and eloquence, OTR’s foray into a new sound is daring and gracefully accomplished, a patent embrace of vulnerable artistry that speaks to his story to date.
There is so much good music coming out this month I can hardly keep up! Here's the latest Buzzz Box Playlist - get your dance on!
The vibes on this Saturday morning are chill and I'm definitely in my special place, at my computer with my puppy on my lap, coffee in my hand, and this fabulous track in my headphones. I have no plans for the day and I give 0 fucks about it ... I may just stay in my pajamas and eat pizza. With such sweet jams from a young producer like Luka, why not have the perfect day? His version of "Jungle" by Panama is so dreamy, it's the quintessential future feels on that chill vibe tip, can I get an amen? Glitchy rhythms and heavy bass with fuzzy vocals kept in the background, as if we are being sweetly serenaded from a distance. Luka killed this one -- brilliant! This one dropped officially via Future Classic, definitely worth swooping up!
One word defines this week's Buzzz Box - and that's Flume! 3 years ago I was dragging my friends out to see this young Australian producer, and they were like "whatever" --- but I knew his potential. That being said, there is also a shit ton of amazing music released this past week by legends like The Magician, Tensnake, Jerry Folk, Falcon Punch, Tear Council, Treasure Fingers + many more! ! Dive into this one kids
