‘Reset’ Yourself And Have ‘A Better Day’ With This Week’s New Music | Fresh Music Friday

by Guest Contributor

Yotto – ‘Silhouette’

Silhouette’ is a melancholy, atmospheric track with hints of ‘80s nostalgia and vocals from Sansa that are smooth as glass. The track conjures up images of vast and endless landscapes; the sense of space is enhanced by sparse chord changes and field recordings of heavy rain. ‘Silhouette’ is so human it feels like an extension of emotion, and Yotto says the idea came to him like a dream. A sound drifted towards him one day and he caught it by the tail and built on top of it until it became the entity he envisioned.

Roger Shah – ‘Magic Island – Music For Balearic People, Vol 11’

“It’s that time of year again guys and I’m super excited to present this new edition [‘Magic Island – Music For Balearic People, Vol 11’] to you! Mix 1 is a unique journey, blending everything from Balearic guitars, deep house vibes and melodic techno. For Mix 2 meanwhile, you’ll find the selection gets more uplifting, emotional and floor-driven, as the mix moves between progressive and trance. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the super-talented artists who contributed to the making of this album. They are the ones who bring that Magic to my Island and I couldn’t do it without them!”

Crosstown Rebels – ‘Spirits V’

“Compiling the Spirits compilations and sourcing the artists that create the artwork for the sleeves is one of my favourite annual jobs for Crosstown Rebels. I get to sift through all the best music being sent to me and find a way to make a cohesive one stop shop full of underground battle weapons and future club hits whilst also setting the tone for the sound of the label in any given year. ‘Spirits V is one of the strongest of the series.”

Wenzday – ‘Nowhere’

Nowhere’ effortlessly combines warehouse romps with futuristic techy elements to deliver an enigmatic lovesick anthem. Designed with the dancefloor in mind, ‘Nowhere’ is yet another rapturous house cut in Wenzday’s ever-growing arsenal.

Topic x A7S – ‘Kernkraft 400 (A Better Day)’

A7S’ powerful vocals on ‘Kernkraft 400 (A Better Day)’ propel the song over Topic’s brooding melodic techno production, leading to the breakdown where his refrain mimics that melody, just before the riff itself drops into play in all its glory. Soft piano chords provide a melancholy counterpoint ahead of the drop, which pushes the track into stadium anthem territory.

Party Favor – ‘RESET’

Adam Ten – ‘15 Days’

“This is my first EP of 2022; I was carefully selecting the tracks that I made around the summer time last year when all the clubs and parties were returning and I felt inspired to write my interpretation of dance music once more. The ‘15 Days’ EP is a representation of the music direction I’m trying to push on Maccabi House, which is predominantly house music but with psychedelic and sometimes ethnic twists on top.”

The Toxic Avenger – ‘The Shore’ 

Stretching across the imagination and into new realms, The Toxic Avenger’s latest EP carries a little something for every adventurer.

An uplifting pop/electronic track, ‘Walk Away’ immerses listeners in a melodical and futuristic sonic getaway.

Icona Pop x Ultra Naté – ‘You’re Free’

“We’ve always loved Ultra Naté’s original ‘Free’, and used to play it in the clubs as DJs in Stockholm, even before we started Icona Pop! It is the ultimate expression of what we want Icona Pop to represent; freedom to be whoever you want to be, live life to the fullest, and have fun. At first it was intimidating when we started to play around with the idea of making a new version [‘You’re Free’], but it felt natural and really came together when Ultra Naté said she wanted to collaborate on our version, we were beyond honored. Ultra Naté is such a legend and this song is a classic. We hope that we have done it justice.”
