“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”

BLINDED HEARTS, “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.
