SNBRN has finally returned after a nationwide spring tour with his followup to “Raindrops” released back in January with an inventive remix of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”. SNBRN has truly done it again on this one, taking an alternative angle when approaching the original song. Sampling Marvin Gaye’s lyric “just grab a hold of my body and mind” and looping it over a perfectly crafted punchy bass has created an undeniable festival house anthem.

I don’t know which part of Loud Luxury’s “All For You” I like more: Kaleena’s powerful vocals, Loud Luxury’s beautiful chords during the versus, or the deep bass heavy drop. “All For You” is the culmination of future and deep house creating a modern sound that tactfully pays homage to classic UK deep house. And what complements this vibe the best? Soulful, gospel-esque vocals from Kaleena Zanders, of course. Stream the track below and keep your eye out for this rising Canadian duo.

As down tempo music is on the rise, the term ‘ambient’ and ‘melodic’ is thrown around so often it has almost lost its meaning. With that being said, it wasn’t until now I found a song that truly encompassed the definition of ambient. Brought to you from our favorite bass connoisseur, Kill Paris returns today with his latest original “You Don’t Love Me No More”. Following up his release “Space Forest”, the second track from his forthcoming album is smooth, sweet and has just enough funk. Keeping in time with the outer space theme, the bass-centric tune soothes the soul as it glides through wavy synths and calming instrumentations. His album “Galaxies Between Us” is set to be released off the ultra talented producer’s own label “Sexy Electric” on April 14th. Check out the stream and grab the free download below.
