There has been a recent surge in popularity for a more laid back and melodic version dance music lead by artists such as Kygo & Thomas Jack. Their remixes are perfectly chilled and pull from artists such as M83 to Marvin Gaye, Ed Sheeran to the Israel Kamakawiwo’ole version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow. While the production of both producers is more than impressive, it’s their track selection as far as remixes go that have caught my attention and introduced me to my new favorite artists Benjamin Francis Leftwich.
Benjamin Francis Leftwich – Shine (Kygo Remix)
Benjamin Francis Leftwich is a 24 year old British singer-songwriter who makes the kind of introspective indie music that my high school self and I are going gaga over. Guitar based and chock full o’ feels, his whole album is something you really gotta check out. Think Bryan Adams meets Adam & Naive.
