AXEL MANSOOR - BUSY

Music, Original MixEricComment

The man is back with another melodic masterpiece. The Mansoor that is. Axel Mansoor, the talented singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist known for his flawless falsetto, catchy lyrical cadence, and glistening guitar licks just dropped his second single of 2019. The track, entitled simply “Busy”, is a chill pop record with sweet synths, sparkly guitar lines, and a message about being so caught up in the constant millennial-grind for success that the important people and things in life fall by the wayside. It’s not quite summer yet, but this tune is getting me primed for chill hangs in the backyard or at the beach. Definitely going on the daytime jams playlist! Go peep!

Based in Athens, Greece, DJ and producer Mel Ody brings his take to the future bass genre with his latest “Reign It In.” The track is one that has been in the works for over a year from both Mel Ody and vocalist Rory Hope. Hope’s voice is perfectly complimented by the upbeat and optimistic production as the two create something pretty remarkable! “Reign It In” is part of a handful of singles and remixes from Mel Ody, with more solo releases and collaborations on the way.

ALESSIA CARA - OUT OF LOVE (DEVAULT REMIX)

Music, RemixSara NatkinsComment

First off, I’d like to sincerely apologize for not getting to this one sooner. LA-based DEVAULT absolutely crushes his freshly released remix of Alessia Cara’s emotive pop ballad, “Out Of Love”. The rising artist sets the theme using his signature retro brand. He infuses the original with nostalgic 80’s synths and energizing riffs that produce an incredible chemistry with Alessia’s passionate lyrics.

To better describe the track’s vibe as vividly as possible, envision yourself cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway on a cloudless day. You’re riding in a convertible, top down with the wind whipping around you, and you have absolutely zero worries in the world. Well that’s exactly what you’re going to be picturing the second the chorus kicks in - guaranteed. Highly recommend you listen to this on high quality headphones in order to truly absorb the full affect and I promise, it will leave you speechless.

KIDSWASTE - SLEEPING PILLS (FEAT. KOLE)

Music, Original MixSara NatkinsComment

In recent years, French producer Kidswaste has quickly become a global act to watch. Each of his tracks boast a glistening digital resonance, robust with a signature shine. His latest unveiling, “Sleeping Pills” featuring LA super-babe KOLE is a testament to his artistic innovation. Swathed in warmth, the single evokes emotion, effortlessly rousing the senses. Hills and valleys of vast landscapes rise from the spaces between each note, prompting an even-tempered listening experience. “Sleeping Pills” is defined by a slackened cadence that is equally as invigorating and effervescent. Kick back and listen to four minutes drawn from the sounds of cloud nine.

AViVA - BLACKOUT

Music, Original MixSara NatkinsComment

Fridays are both our favorite and, well, not so favorite day of the week. Why? Because there’s just so many damn good releases that it’s nearly impossible for us to decide which ones to showcase here on Beautiful Buzzz. 

The first of the batch that made the (extremely difficult) cut is the new one from rapidly rising singer/songwriter AViVA- a fresh, high-energy single titled “BLACKOUT”. Enlisting an all-star team for the - contrary to its name - colorful pop single, AViVA was aided by a few production power players like Jayson Dezuzio (Imagine Dragons and Lana Del Rey), Charlie Snyder (Bebe Rexha) and Jean Paul Fung who has also worked on past releases for AViVA such as “GRRRLS” and “BRN”. Finally, the song was sonically balanced and perfected by mastering wiz, Chris Gehringer (Twenty One Pilots, Fall Out Boy, Halsey and more).

“BLACKOUT’s” lively nature gives you just the right amount of boost you need to transition from the draining weekdays to kickstart an amped weekend. Also, not to mention how catchy the lyrics are; this is one you will definitely find yourself singing in the shower as you get ready for the Friday night festivities.

EYLIA X MAJEUR MINEUR - AURA

Original Mix, MusicSara NatkinsComment

Newcomer Eylia is making some massive waves with her collaborative debut EP “The Missing Scent”. Aided by fellow producer Majeur Mineur, the 7-track work is absolutely exquisite as it blends R&B with a pop-electronic sound that serves as the backdrop of the EP. 

The track that particularly caught our attention was “Aura”, a soothing piece that can put anyone’s stresses or worries at ease. Eylia is truly a knockout, setting herself apart from others through a powerful and striking vocal performance, that is driven by emotive lyrics and a soulful melody. Considering such outstanding talent as hers, one can only imagine how quickly the up and coming artist will be packing stadiums.

YIANNA - ORDINARY LOVE

Music, Original MixSara NatkinsComment

Vibrant and feminine, Yianna’s latest offering “Ordinary Love” is a striking framework of stirring sounds. This soulful indie joint is sensual and enticing, breathing life into elegant cadences defined only by the songstress herself. “Ordinary Love” boasts a natural ebb and flow that is both gorgeous and gritty, solidifying the musically-gifted queen’s place as an artist to watch. This bedroom talk anthem is saturated with romance and fearlessness, constructed with fiery passion. Tune into this intoxicating single of femme resonance as you lose yourself in the beauty that is “Ordinary Love.”

BEAUVOIS - ESCAPE

Music, Original MixSara NatkinsComment

Beauvois, more commonly known by his indie-pop moniker, Kidswaste, has once again graced us with an exposé of versatility and musical brilliance. His fresh release “Escape” takes a different path than previous releases of this alias that took on a mellower vibe such as his last single “Jupiter”. In his most recent, the French singer, songwriter and musician assumes an earlier 2000’s indie/synth-pop sound comprised of upbeat chords and energized guitar riffs. It perfectly cultivates a heavy sense of nostalgia through indie rock elements such as those found in old school Matt & Kim while the 21 year old artist tops it off with his own vocals- ones that almost scarily resembles that of Thomas Mars, lead singer of (also) French indie-pop/new wave band Phoenix. All in all, if you’re looking for an “escape” from the long hours of work, and the continuously shortening days of winter, then this is definitely going to be your go-to.

QUINCY MUMFORD - THANK YOU

Original Mix, MusicSara NatkinsComment

You really have to hand it to musicians; it’s nearly impossible to fathom how difficult and painstaking it must be to come up with something so innovative that one can create a sound-based brand for their selves that’s identifiable. With so many styles and genrse having been exhausted already, and with trends coming and going so rapidly, it’s pretty hard for us to come across a song that we can defiantly say “THIS is different.” We can only assume that it takes a whole lotta thinking outside the box and a ton of patience.

That’s why when Quincy Mumford’s latest track “Thank You” was brought to our attention, we felt as if we had struck gold. Blending concepts such as old school, mellow hip hop riffs with pop electronic synths with the help of producer Jenaux, the two artists design something beautiful through the most unlikely of combinations. The production is woven together with Quincy’s voice, one that can achieve such a high pitch range that nearly resembles Prince’s very own. For us, “Thank You” is like a breath of fresh air, and we certainly can’t- and won’t- get enough of it.
