Electronic music is an ever changing atmosphere. In a constant loop of evolving genres and more and more producers surfacing every day, what was once an underground genre, now requires true musicianship to make it. A perfect example, up-and-coming brother duo, Sailors, had been producing a long time as a hobby, but decided to take a chance dropping everything to make it a career. And we’re glad they did. With a clear vision of what they wanted their music to portray, the duo’s sound transports you far away from reality. Their latest original, “Feels So Good”, lives up to the title. Catching your attention from the start, the track travels through piano keys, mesmerizing vocals and a variety of soothing instrumentals. Out on Casual Jams Records, stream the track below. Enjoy!

Norwegian producer, Bearson, has been quickly evolving his music since his debut in 2014. Starting his career vested in Tropical House, the young producer decided to go down a new path in 2015. Hot off the heels of his debut original “Pink Medicine”, Bearson is shaking things up again with his latest remix of Ghost Loft’s track “Talk To Me”. The remix starts soft and ambient and segues into a groovy, uplifting melody accompanied by piano keys, heavenly synths and hints of his signature Tropical sound. Transporting us back to a warmer time, Bearson’s remix of “Talk To Me” takes the slow, heartbreak song and transforms it into a little bit of sunshine. We’re anticipating great things from the producer this year. Be sure to grab your Free Download here, enjoy!

“In remixing SoySauce’s record, we reimagined it with a future bass spin.  We wanted to deliver something that’s accessible and unique.  The track starts off a little experimental and then builds into a melodic, synth driven beat. We think all electronic music fans will enjoy this one, we had a lot of fun producing it.” – Louis The Child

Matt DiMona returns with another Feel Good House remix of Maroon 5’s iconic hit “She Will Be Loved”. By effortlessly weaving catchy chords with a thumping house beat, DiMona successfully reinvents the timeless sing-along with his signature indie house sound.  Grab the free download here!

“She Will Be Loved” is one of my all time favorite throwback pop guilty pleasures, and when I found the acapella online I knew I had to remix it. I’m a sucker for massive, hands-in-the-air chords, and when I paired them with some slow but groovy house beats (as well as some cheeky rain noise to coincide with the lyrics) I came up with a really interesting blend of sounds. Play this at your next pool party and belt out that hook- I know you know the words! – Matt DiMona

SNBRN feat. Kerli - Raindrops-500x500

Rising LA house/indie-dance artist SNBRN makes his Ultra Music debut with the release of “Raindrops”. In “Raindrops”, the Southern California native carefully balances warm piano chords and Kerli’s infectious vocals with an undeniably catchy synth hook. This expertly crafted interplay of melody results in a sublime piece of house music.

“6 months ago I met Kerli at a small studio in Venice Beach, California. We shared our stories, really got to know each other and came up with a concept that would evolve into the song you hear today. We wanted to create a song that would be powerful and moving yet also something you could really groove to. The lyrics really hit home for me and I’m so excited to finally share it with you guys. It was such an unbelievable experience to work with Kerli and create something so beautiful from nothing. The best things always take time; the wait was definitely worth it. I present to you RAINDROPS.” – SNBRN

Prep School Recordings is proud to present indie electronic duo Ardency with their “Gradience” EP. Ardency fuses elements of future music atmospheres and classic french electro instrumentation with warm vocal toplines to deliver an angsty, passion driven two track EP. “A Way To Say” and “King & Queen” both hold somber yet uplifting messages; leading the listener through feelings of lament and nostalgia, then away to a blind yet optimistic state of mind. Ardency elaborates on their inspiration for the EP:

“The definition of Gradience is the absence of a clear cut boundary. That is ultimately what we wanted to accomplish with this EP; we want to push the boundaries of music. We feel that the EP strongly represents the type of emotional sound that we aim for as Ardency.” – Ardency

Ardency’s “Gradience” EP was be released by Prep School Recordings on all major digital retailers on December 9th, 2014. Stream both tracks below, and download “A Way To Say” from SoundCloud now:
