When photographer Paul Raftery sent us his timelapse movie of The Shard yesterday, one of our very first reactions was how great the soundtrack was. So we thought we'd post it up in full here on Dezeen Music Project.
Dezeen Music Project
Here's another collaboration between UK producer Mykus and singer Fruit Shoes, although Carrots is a much mellower, more light-hearted offering compared to the dark and glitchy track that we featured on Dezeen Music Project a couple of months ago. Here we've got cute, catchy vocals and a refreshingly lo-fi, almost clunky bass-line that sets the tone for the track as a whole.
You can listen to the original track here if you prefer a more hardcore start to your week.
We thought it was time for a different vibe after all the dubby tracks we started the week with on Dezeen Music Project. This ambient track by Hungarian group Seeds in Helmet is dark and brooding, with haunting, whispered vocals and a delicate keyboard line that bubbles underneath.
MyDinamo is part of an album called LoveBox, which you can download for free here.
Yesterday we had dub reggae from Berlin, and we continue the global feel today on Dezeen Music Project with some transnational dubstep courtesy of Solar Lion. World Steppers is an intriguing fusion of tribal sounds and rhythms, with a bass-heavy dubstep sensibility.
We've got a much more danceable track for you on Dezeen Music Project today, with this minimal but funky house track by Kobi Glas. Funky Pressure is one of a collection of tracks inspired by the city of Tel Aviv, which you can download here if you like what you hear.
Having too many analogue synths to play with isn't conducive to a good night's sleep - that's what Shitwave discovered when making this track, aptly titled Sleeping Problems, which manages to be catchy as well as rhythmically experimental.
There's also a music video for the track that you can watch here.
If you're a fan of retro keyboard sounds, you'll love this track by Monster Bobby. A1 Autoroute du Nord is a driving, pulsing track with a definite nod to 1980s synth-pop. It also reminds us of some of the excellent 80s-inspired music on the soundtrack to last year's Nicolas Winding Refn movie, Drive.
We used this remix by Kid Circus as the soundtrack on the final show from our TV studio at MOST, which you can watch here if you haven't already. Upbeat, funky, and a little bit crazy, it seemed like a fitting track to round off our week in Milan with.
We used another of BEAKR's tracks called Paper View on our showreel that we have been playing in our studio at MOST, and will be up on Dezeen soon.
Manke sure you check out BEAKR's Bandcamp page for all their other great tracks.
Antagonic Urban Cities by Ral is inspired by the different urban street music found in Puerto Rico and Barcelona.
We'll be choosing a different track from Dezeen Music Project each day, so make sure you tune in to www.dezeenstudio.com tomorrow morning for the next episode.
