One last dance on the beach makes “Infinite Summers” by @AashMehtamusic featuring @Lydia__Kelly_

AASH MEHTA featuring LYDIA KELLY, “Infinite Summers”

Following up his lush and romantic EP Stardust, should we expect anything less than a song about “Infinite Summers” from Chicago-based producer/DJ Aash Mehta?  Working once again with Lydia Kelly (you’ll remember last year’s “FriendZone”), “Infinite Summers” is one of those songs for a last dance on the beach at the end of summer, knowing that those kinds of moments will always be in our thoughts if not in real time.  So there’s a mix of emotions as a result, happy but forlorn, and even the synthesized horn sounds have a warm appeal about them.  So give the summer another whirl for now and forever, and check out “Infinite Summers” above while you’re at it 🙂

For the #EDM romantic in us all there’s “Stardust” the new 6 song EP by @AashMehtamusic

AASH MEHTA, Stardust (EP)

Now based out of Chicago, producer/DJ Aash Mehta firmly establishes a unique approach to EDM with his new 6 song EP Stardust on release by Casual Jam Recordings.  It’s lush and romantic to be sure, with songs telling stories out of personal experience, initiated by the instrumental introduction “Welcome To Stardust”.  It’s also light and playful, echoing sentiments that one does feel in a romantic relationship.  

The music often relies on repetitive synth effects to accentuate joyfulness, and there are a number of fine vocalists showcased throughout the EP.  Best of all, I’m so glad “Wings”, featuring a beauty of a vocal by Jess Forman, is included.  I wrote about this particularly outstanding song back last summer and it has even more potential these months later.  Also key is the effortless-sounding “Friendzone” featuring another top notch vocalist with whom Aash has recorded before named Lydia Kelly.  Aviella carries two songs brimming with emotion, “Hold Onto Me” and “Never Gonna Stop”, while the remaining track “In Your Eyes” features Bri Tolani and Zephure.  All of the songs glide by in the best of ways but I think your attention will be stuck to “Wings” and “Friendzone”.  Stardust is a great start to a full body of original music by Aash Mehta.  

Given the many varied remixes Aash concocted in 2016, Stardust represents a significant turn-of-the-page with loads of possibilities for what’s next in 2017.  Be sure to pick up Stardust at your favourite digital store.

AASH MEHTA featuring LYDIA KELLY, “Breathe Into Reality”

Producer/DJ Aash Mehta and vocalist Lydia Kelly are two talents from Ann Arbor, Michigan to watch out for and “Breathe Into Reality” is an affecting alternative EDM track that can bridge a mix when some quiet moments are required.  The song’s first minute and a half can create beautiful transitions between sets when Lydia’s seamless vocal is unleashed and simply soars.  Aash definitely goes his own way with his mix, which is divided between that introductory vocal showcase and a moodier, thoughtful second half.  “Breathe Into Reality” is one of those songs that manages to stand well on its own and grows with repeated listens.  Download it for free at the link above.
