Kygo & Thomas Jack Are Bringing The Singer-Songwriter to Dance Music

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 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.

Perfectly Chilled: Elaksi x aywy – Nobody Else

TNJ favorite Elaski is back with another perfectly chilled track, collaborating with Australian producer aywy. We’ve become familiar with the big bass and ambient atmosphere of Elaksi but this track really is something incredible, with jazzy horn samples, a sensual female vocal and an energy fit for the bedroom. No free download as of yet but this is absolutely one of those tracks you need to zone out to.

Listen: Pierce Fulton – Runaways EP

One of the things I really enjoy about Pierce Fulton is his ability to consistently create music that is pleasant to listen to and full of enough energy for the club all at once. His tracks are dotted by all sorts of quirky tones and chords but it is uniquely Pierce Fulton’s and in a market where success seems to be attained by who can copycat the successful sound of the moment best, his music comes as a refreshing change of pace. Assorted links are below and be sure to grab the track on Beatport if you support!!

Introducing VibeWithIt Records

We have long supported the guys and gals over at indie dance/nu disco outfit Wallflower Food and we love them even more now that they got a makeover and name change to become VibeWithIt. They put out their first release featuring the band VIBES and a bunch of awesome remixes that are sure to get you moving!

For our debut EP on VibeWithIt Records, we wanted to make a statement with our content. VIBES is a group out of Southern Cali who we got to see live after already becoming fans of their soundcloud catalogue. We knew we wanted to work with them because not only were they top notch producers, but their live show was incredible as well. Their name overlap with ours was just another sign that we had to work together.
