MADNAP & DUUMU featuring BIEN, “Disappear” (free DL)

ASTRE featuring KEVIN BLU, “Shades” (Madnap & Metsä remix)

Following up the quiet and romantic “Honey”, L.A.’s Madnap has a two-for all ready for you!

First up is his collaboration with Charlie Duumu, who divides his time between the UK and France, with “Disappear” featuring Chicago-based K-Pop vocalist Bien.  Madnap and Duumu have concocted an unconventional EDM ballad/breakup song “Disappear”.  The emotional vocal meshes well with the ever-changing surroundings created by Madnap and Duumu, which will go places that you wouldn’t expect for this kind of record.  At the end, more shaken than stirred, “Disappear” gives you pause for thought and resonates because of the beautiful underlying melody.  Download it for free at the link above.

Madnap in partnership with Washington’s Metsä remixes an equally pretty song by France’s Astre called “Shades” from Astre’s recent EP For So Long.  They take some liberties with US singer Kevin Blu’s fresh-sounding voice and add a dancehall-influenced rhythm to give “Shades” a much more different vibe from the original.  It works like a charm and club DJ’s wanting to segue into a full-blown dancehall-flavoured set might want to set it up with Madnap & Metsä’s remix of “Shades”.  Have a listen at the link below.

NYC duo @djSHADESmusic gives electronic inspiration for clubs to “Moonlight” by @GraceVanderWaal

GRACE VANDERWAAL, “Moonlight” (SHADES remix) (free DL)

After receiving praise for their remixes this year for the likes of Betty Who, SHADES are back with an unexpected electronic reinterpretation of “Moonlight” by Grace VanderWaal.  Grace, as you likely now, was last year’s winner of America’s Got Talent at age 12.  Her debut album for Sony “Just The Beginning” is coming this Fall and has been preceded by some singles such as “Moonlight”, which definitely recalls singer JoJo at around that age.  But with different current inspirations like Lorde, Grace’s style veers more towards alt.pop. SHADES definitely see the potential for clubs as they fill “Moonlight” awash with uplifting synths, transforming the alt.pop leanings for club goers in the process.  The song is more than suited for a deep house style, with fine drops and other moments that work completely well.  Download it for free at the link above.
