Five for Friday: 6th July 2018
Ayin - Your Body feat. Kinnie Lane
Iranian-born, Swedish-based electronic artist Ayin has teamed up with French vocalist Kinnie Lane for their new banger single "Your Body". The track dials it up to eleven with its infectious energy and wonderful pop vocals.
Fairlane - Uncover You (ft. Ilsey)
New single "Uncover You" from Vancouver-based artist Fairlane and Californian singer Ilsey is a beautiful melodic future bass treat. Fairlane burst onto the scene last year posting a number of popular remixes including songs from Rihanna and The Chainsmokers. Uncover You is his debut original single release, and with quality like this he's set to take off. Ilsey has previously featured and co-written on Robin Schulz's "Headlights" and Kaskade's "Disarm You".
Fairlane said of the track: "Uncover You is, as the song title suggests, is the birth of a new chapter for Fairlane; this first single marks the unveiling of a unique side of the project that hasn't yet been presented to the public. Having the chance to work alongside singer/ songwriter Ilsey was a unique opportunity that opened my mind to a different perspective/ approach to production and composition. The topline struck a particular chord, one which invoked a feeling I'd felt had been missing from my typical creative approach, and allowed me to experiment with a direction I'd always wanted to take the project. Through the use of acoustic instrumentation, mainly acoustic and electric guitars, and soft synth design, I was able to create a soundscape that matched the emotion behind Ilsey's writing, and finished with a song that I'm very proud of."
We Are Fury - Killing Me Slow
We Are Fury's new single "Killing Me Slow" has a hybrid trap sound that seamlessly incorporates acoustic guitar and features fantastic falsetto vocals in its hook. The duo said of the track: "We started working on this record six months ago. The song is about being stuck in a relationship where you give more than you receive and it begins to eat you up inside. We portrayed this in every aspect of the song including the production, lyrics and art."
Mickey Kojak - Get Out
Funky stripped-back production and catchy vocals on new single "Get Out" from Australian artist Mickey Kojak is sure to get you nodding along. The track explores a relationship that is fighting an uphill battle and ultimately, "realising that the easiest option to resolving a problem isn't always the best option." The track will feature on his upcoming EP.
Xcellence - Desire
17 year old Greek DJ/producer Xcellence has released an impressive debut called "Desire" on label Inextremis. He skillfully crafts an instrumental electronic soundscape that will leave you desiring nothing but to put it on repeat and lose yourself in its sonic glory.
