Monday Music: Wayvee, Pensees, Mazde, Jerry Folk & IsGoods

New week, new tunes! Hope the long weekend is treating you well if you’re off. If you’re working on this Presidents Day Monday, turn on, tune in & drop out.
Wayvee‘s Recovery EP is a lilting, chilled melodic future footwork feature. The reworking of the classical music is something you hear every so often, but it’s rarely this good. The soft operatic melody above the future bass & footwork is a treasure that you need in your life right now.

Pensees misted into my awareness last week, one of those artists you almost don’t notice if you’re not paying attention. The melodic chill is expertly produced, creating an aural landscape you don’t much hear in the USA outside of artists like Haven, glo & a couple of others. It’s evocative while faintly nostalgic, so put it on and drift off. If you can’t get enough of this sound, hit up the bandcamp for 5 more releases in the same chilled out vein.

Mazde has popped up on my radar a couple of times over the last year or two, but this track really brought his talents into light. The German remixed Rufus, pulling from the recent “Bloom.” It’s a powerful track that mixes melancholy, indie & some exceptional chord work. Take a look at this guy if you’re looking for music that’s hopeful without being saccharine.

Jerry Folk & ELOQ came out of nowhere on this one. The half indietronica, half future bass vibes on this are undeniable. There’s also a touch of the relaxed west coast feels we’re starting to see with the Future scene out in LA & SF. Great work, definitely legit effort, and earned a spot on my radar.

Closing out the post with a 2 piece EP from Isgoood. I don’t usually post seemingly standard House because I’ve got a pretty high bar for that genre, as I primarily dance out of doors in NYC to it. This kind of classic vibe is my exception. Done impeccably, the production perfectly captures the SoHo bar, filled with fashionable people who know their house & rock their own style. Props once again to V for always dropping quality on FreshNewTracks, as because of him, I can bring it to you all.

Midnight Music: Vianney – Je Te Déteste (Glastrophobie Remix) [Deep French House]

Vianney - Je Te Deteste (Glastrophobie Remix)

I was tipped off to this soothing & upbeat tune by V/Man, an authority over at FreshNewTracks. I am a huge fan of the lack of English, and the beauty of the French language is on display here. The deep vocal vibes are complimented by some choral beats & a funky guitar. I’ve talked about Glastrophobie a couple of times and I’ve gotta say, I keep coming back to the competence & orchestrally styled composition. There’s a sense of harmonies here that you don’t find in most producers of his stature, and I cannot thank him enough for it. Put it into your face and gear up for the next week ahead of you.
