There’s no leaving before the “Last Call” by German producer @listentoLO featuring Norway’s @Elouizofficial

LO featuring ELOUIZ, “Last Call”

“Last Call” is a slick collaboration by former ‘bedroom’ producer, Germany’s LO, along with Norwegian singer Elouiz.  It’s a key song for clubs to play as the evening is peaking, and I guarantee you that patrons will stay past last call just to make a point 🙂 Elouiz’s on-point and often sassy vocal will appeal to those who enjoy singers like Rozes or Verité or maybe even Katy Perry.  LO keeps the pace swift with some ear-catching effects that make the song go by in a breezy three minutes.  “Last Call” plays to club and bar goers but also has loads of pop potential.  Add it to your playlist of late-nite songs on Spotify using the link above.

German producers @VeniceandBoujee bring you the inspiring “My Time Will Come”

PAUL VENICE & DAN BOUJEE, “My Time Will Come” (free DL)

New German production duo Paul Venice and Dan Boujee are off to a great start out of the gate with “My Time Will Come”.  It’s an inspiring slice of folk story pop that happily marries dance rhythms to a memorable guitar-driven melody rather than the usual dose of synths.  What it also offers is an inspiring story of confidence and determination, which no one can get enough of these days.  The vocals are a bit on the raw side but after repeated listens you realize they totally suit the production and the approach of the song.  Best of all it’s a free download.  Add it to your story-telling dance playlist on Spotify or download it right here.

It’s @Saxity and Victor Perry @perksofbeingvic together again for the flowing pop of “You Found Me”

SAXITY featuring VICTOR PERRY, “You Found Me” (free DL)

Sometimes, ongoing partnerships are just meant to be.  When German producers Saxity paired up with NYC-based singer/songwriter Victor Perry for a contemporary take on “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” last year, I just knew we’d hear them again.  Almost a year later, here they are again with “You Found Me”, which has a lovely and positive message for this time of year. Victor’s silky-smooth pop/R&B style gives it the flavour and inspiration it needs, while Saxity gives the deep house melody a seamless flow while adding in saxophone that anchors the song at key moments.  Proving once again that not all electronic pop needs to have a slamming beat and huge synths, “You Found Me” by Saxity and Victor Perry is fine and friendly pop for a variety of playlists.  You can download it for free at the link above.

“More Than I Do” by @Saxity featuring @Oferlemusic straddles genres with deep house rhythms

SAXITY featuring OFERLE, “More Than I Do” (free DL)

German production duo Saxity returns to straddle genres successfully with “More Than I Do”.  It may not be as noticeable to European audiences as North American ones, but the bright synths and solid deep house rhythms surround a luscious pop/country concoction that is only made better by the alternating male and female vocals from within Indiana trio Oferle.  It’s a singalong, it’s a dance-a-long, and it further continues in dance music what Avicii started in his 2012 album True with “Wake Me Up” and “Hey Brother”.  You’ll also recall Saxity’s glowing folk/pop/dance blend from earlier in the year with “Brothers” (which got to #3 on my personal chart).  There have been a lot of bad imitators and successors to the Avicii record, but Saxity continues to find happy places in songs where everything works so well thanks to spot on production and great choices of vocalists.  “More Than I Do” is a free download for you at the link above.

Meet Munich’s @Blinded_Hearts with big-sounding and genuine “Human”


Germany’s Blinded Hearts is a relative newcomer to the dance/EDM world, but has quickly risen to some attention in Europe in the last year with support by the likes of Sam Feldt.  If “Human” is the single to acquire even more response it’s because it’s got a genuine story to get inside your skin that is brought to life from the get-go by big beats and flourishing synth lines.  “Human” goes just fine, thank you, next to songs by Flume, Illenium or Autograf, and the vocals are convincing and eloquent given the topic of Blinded Hearts’ song.  Remixes might help dazzle the song more for clubs, but the big-hearted “Human” plays proudly like on an idyllic day in the open air.  Check it out at the Spotify link above.
