“Out Of Love” (with @AC15music and @theSamuelKnight) and “Love Like This” (with @Svrcinasongs) are two top notch dance releases from @KoniOfficial

KONI & AC15 and SAM KNIGHT, “Out Of Love”

KONI and SVRCINA, “Love Like This”

It’s always a treat to keep up with the latest in high quality independent dance music releases from German producer and guitarist Koni, whether his solo projects or those of his other production group Saxity.  Every release from Koni sounds fresh and is almost always undertaken with a variety of collaborations that span around the world.

“Out Of Love” is emotional dance pop that wouldn’t sound out of place on pop radio, even next to, perhaps, the latest by Midnight Kids and Jared Lee called “Those Were The Days”.  “Out Of Love” pairs Koni with new Dominican Republic producer AC15 and the singer is Sam Knight, a Minneapolis born talent-on-the-rise.  The result is a tightly woven and affecting song deserving of your attention, which you can hear above.

Equally of note is “Love Like This”, more of a deep house effort, this time featuring Nashville vocalist Svrcina (sur-cee-na).  Her fine, consistent vocal is offset by a potent tropical-flavoured deep house rhythm that slows down with a change up to a more celebratory, carnival kind of vibe, before the key beats return.  Check it out at the above link.

Chill ‘n sway: @SeanTurkmusic reworks “Out Of Love” by @TwoFriendsmusic & @CosmosnCreature bedroom bass-style

TWO FRIENDS featuring COSMOS & CREATURE, “Out Of Love” (Sean Turk remix) (free DL)

The title song from the recent EP of originals which I wrote about earlier this year by faves Two Friends and Cosmos & Creature – Molly Moore and Brandyn Burnette – receives the Sean Turk treatment bedroom bass-style.  You’ll recall that Sean also showed another side to Brandyn’s own “Closer” last year.  But bedroom bass-style for “Out of Love”  means he’s puts a laid back but sexy spin on the more urgent and anthemic original.  It’s never too chillaxed to move you entirely off the dance floor, in fact “Out Of Love” now inspires you to get closer to your partner than ever, sway and spin to the music, with release accomplished à la bedroom bass.  I guess what we need next is that EP of Sean’s remixes for the supreme Sean Turk experience.  Until then, partner or no partner, indulge in “Out of Love”, which you can pick up for free at the link above.

New EP Out Of Love by L.A.’s @TwoFriendsmusic features three danceable treats

TWO FRIENDS, Out Of Love (EP)

Their friendly and hook-filled style has had me listening for more than a year now, and L.A.’s Two Friends production duo (Matt and Eli) brings us their first all-original three song EP, Out Of Love.  It’s at this stage when musicianship takes over and we have before us three quite different songs which show that Two Friends are not at all stuck to the frenetic EDM of many of their fine remixes.  

And what would Two Friends do of course but to bring along more friends!  I’ve already written about their collaboration with Brandyn Burnette and Molly Moore, aka Cosmos N Creature, on the title song.  A second collaboration with the immensely talented MAX (aka Max Schneider) on “Pacific Coast Highway” follows their sparkling redux of MAX’s “Lights Down Low”.  It’s a wistful EDM remembrance meant for a late night drive down that long highway or one similar.  But the best of the lot is the harmonica-laden “Mona Lisa Eyes”, which sort of celebrates what Avicii brought to the EDM fold five years ago with country flavour and takes it a number of steps further.  It also happens to be a gorgeous song with an amazing vocal by an uncredited singer.

 Pick up Two Friends’ Out Of Love EP at your favourite digital store.

Insanely prolific @CosmosnCreature return on #EDM songs by @TwoFriendsmusic and @PLSandTYbased

The duo of Cosmos & Creature, aka Molly Moore and Brandyn Burnette, are so insanely prolific with their own recent and upcoming solo releases, being featured on other artists’ songs, and having side project Cosmos & Creature also release its own songs and be featured as well!  How they stay on top of all of this, I don’t quite know.  But everything Molly and Brandyn create has high quality rubber-stamped on it!

TWO FRIENDS featuring COSMOS & CREATURE, “Out Of Love”

Their pairing with L.A.’s Two Friends is on a new original by the in-demand and frequently touring production/remix duo called “Out Of Love” for Spinnin’.  It may be at the same time Two Friends’ most chilled out and anthemic song yet that’s also enhanced by some saxophone riffing.  Brandyn’s self-reflective leads the way on this one while the crowd-pleasing chorus will have you swaying away.

PLS&TY featuring COSMOS & CREATURE, “Good Vibes”

Also chilled out but with a more hip hop flavour running through it is “Good Vibes” by another L.A. producer, PLS&TY (that’s ‘please and thank you’), for the PMRD label.  PLS&TY has had his own share of steady remixes with a few originals under his belt.  In “Good Vibes”, Molly and Brandyn trade off vocals in a song that will set a positive stage for whatever you want to do, whether it’s a lazy Sunday or the start of an evening at a club.  They’re countered with a slick dubsteppy break that totally suits the song to give it some bounce.

Listen to both at the Spotify links above, and watch for Cosmos & Creature’s follow up to their debut single “Young” very soon!  Cosmos & Creature are also touring with Call Me Karizma on dates throughout select U.S. cities in March and April.
