Dezeen Music Project
This brooding electro-pop song is by a UK duo called Twin Pod Cloud Car. Taken from their album Don't Panic, Gravity combines a ferocious electronic beat with chant-like repeating vocal melodies and lyrics that provide, in the band's own words, "a simple science lesson".
Jordan Mitchell is a man of wide-ranging musical talents. The first tracks of his we heard were soft, soothing acoustic guitar instrumentals (check out Filtered Sunshine, which we featured on Dezeen Music Project back in March). But these days he's just as likely to send over glitchy, stuttering electronica like this excellent track called Overpopulation.
We end the week on Dezeen Music Project with the dextrous fingerpicking of Italian musician Francesco Fiotti on this beautiful acoustic guitar instrumental called Tightrope.
If you like what you hear, check out the track of his that we featured on Dezeen Music Project last month, which also features the serene cello playing of Marvin Ayres.
There's no aquatic theme in his latest offering, Ascend, just funky synths, a grooving bass-line and pounding drum track.
Today's Dezeen Music Project track is by Cardiff based DJ Simplex, aka architecture student Simon James. Simplex explores a range of different genres in his tracks, from very minimal, atmospheric techno to more club-friendly tech-house like this track, Reso Dream.
If you like what you hear but are feeling in a more minimal mood, make sure you check out the other tracks on his Souncloud page.
We continue our exploration of tracks by artists on music label Anova Music with this enchanting song by Israeli singer and actress Efrat Ben Zur. Bee is Ben Zur's lulling, almost hypnotic interpretation of the Emily Dickinson poem Bee! I'm Expecting You, and is taken from her 2012 album Robin, which contains eight other Dickinson poems set to music.
Our second track of the week from Israeli music label Anova Music is a summery, psychedelic pop song by Tel Aviv-based band Underwater Firemen. With its hazy harmonies and wall of fuzzy keyboard and guitar sounds, Burning Flowers wouldn't sound out of place on an Of Montreal or Animal Collective album.
Make sure you check out yesterday's track by another Anova Music band called Kitzu, and head over to Anova Music's Soundcloud page to hear tracks by the other artists on their books.
Israeli music label Anova Music have sent us over so many great tracks recently that we couldn't just choose one, so we're going to feature a track by one of their artists each day for the rest of the week on Dezeen Music Project.
First up is this slick track by Jerusalem-based band Kitzu. Taken from their recently released debut album, Going Far combines glitchy, post-rock instrumentation with a solid bass groove and infectious vocal hook.
Here's the third of a trio of house tracks we've featured on Dezeen Music Project this week. With You is an upbeat, sunny track by Californian DJ Krusht, taken from his recent EP By the Pool, which we featured the title track of on Dezeen Music Project last month.
Today on Dezeen Music Project we've got some deep house courtesy of Greek DJs Nsquared. This track is a remix of Keep on Searching by G Spice, and features Nsquared's signature funky, jazz-infused house sound.
If you're enjoying the vibe, make sure you check out our other house tracks on Dezeen Music Project, including another Nsquared track that we featured back in April.
Setting up a pop-up is always a hectic business, so we've been very appreciative of all of the great chill-out tracks that have been coming our way. This one is a new track by Remote Scenes, who we originally featured back in May. Make sure you check that track out too.
You can listen to the original track here.
Make sure you also check out the other remixes we've featured on Dezeen Music Project so far.
We've been getting a lot of great remixes submitted to Dezeen Music Project recently, and this one by It Takes Two to Tango is no exception. The track is a competition entry in an Indaba Music contest to remix Settle Down by New Zealand singer-songwriter Kimbra, a voice you'll recognise from Gotye's 2011 hit Somebody That I Used to Know.
This song by Moscow-based musician Jekka shows what you can do with just a laptop, a microKORG and some talent. Layers of looped vocal samples and a full-blooded synth bass combine to provide a platform for Jekka's powerful, dynamic vocal melody. It's a bold and energetic style that draws favourable comparisons with the excellent Tune-Yards album of last year.
New York artist Solar Lion has sent us this preview of a new track he's working on for his forthcoming EP. Like previous Solar Lion tracks we've featured on Dezeen Music Project, Lift it Up is a fusion of different genres, with modern US dubstep sounds underpinned by the prominent upbeat of a more old-school dub rhythm.
The remix builds on the original track's reverb-drenched vocals, but breaks up the wall of post-punk distorted guitars underneath to end up with a track that's lush, ethereal as well as a little bit glitchy.
