Dezeen Music Project
This hazy house track by Krusht is taken from his EP of the same name, self-released only last week. It's a great tune in it's own right, but the three tracks on the EP really compliment each other well, so make sure you check it out in full here.
England are currently playing their first Euro 2012 match against France, so we needed a track to help ease the tension here in the Dezeen office. This serene latin-infused acoustic guitar instrumental by Francesco Fiotti, which features cello by British musician Marvin Ayres, does the job nicely, whatever team you're cheering on this summer. And if you're not a football fan in need of stress relief, it's a lovely track all the same.
Today on Dezeen Music Project we've got another funky disco re-edit courtesy of DJ/producer Debonair for you to get your Friday night groove on to.
This time it's Lowrell's 80s hit Mellow Mellow Right On to get the Debonair treatment, but if you're feeling in a disco mood make sure you also check out his reworking of Rhyze’s Just How Sweet Is Your Love that we featured on Dezeen Music Project back in March.
This pulsing, shimmering electronica track is by Radiant Dragon, the music project of artist/designer Lawrence Lek, who helped lead the 3013 Installation at the Architectural Association that we featured on Dezeen last year.
The track comes from Radiant Dragon's debut album Screengazers, which you can listen to in full on his website.
We've got a four-day weekend to look forward to here in England, so we thought we should find an upbeat track to end the week on a high with. BEAKR haven't let us down before in this respect, and this remix of a song by Chicago three-piece The Welcome is no exception.
You can listen to BEAKR's other remixes here.
We've had a hot, busy day at the press preview of Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei's Serpentine Gallery Pavilion which opens to the public tomorrow, so we were grateful to get back to the office and find this tranquil chill-out track by AB2G to wind down to.
The track was submitted by Curious Absurdities, an online music label run by General Reef, who we featured on Dezeen Music Project last week. Curious Absurdities have got loads of other great artists on their books, so make sure you check them out.
We like to mix things up on Dezeen Music Project, so after all the summery chill-out tracks we've been featuring recently, we thought it was time for something a bit different. This track by Olly Clucas is dark, driving and a little bit glitchy: not your typical lazy summer afternoon kind of track, but once the beat kicks in you won't care.
The sun is shining and the temperature keeps on rising here at Clerkenwell Design Week where we are rushing about trying to cover the festival as well as looking after our Dezeen Watch Store pop-up shop. We need a track to help us chill out, and this ambient soundscape by General Reef should do the trick.
We love getting original tracks from unexpected places on Dezeen Music Project. This track made up of layers of electronic loops is by Metamechanics, a design and construction consultancy firm by trade. You can listen to some of their other tracks here.
We'll be playing Dezeen Music Project tracks like this one all week at our Dezeen Watch store pop-up at Clerkenwell Design Week, so make sure you drop by.
Maybe it's because we're all partied out from the tokyobike store opening last night, but we're finishing off the week on Dezeen Music Project with a nice mellow track. This melodic soundscape is by Remote Scenes (aka Greig Penny), a graduate architect from Aberdeen.
This evening Dezeen Music Project will be heading off to the launch party for tokyobike's new store, where we'll be behind the decks providing all the tunes.
We'll be spinning an eclectic mix of some of our favourite music that's been submitted so far, including up-tempo party tracks, mellow grooves as well as darker, more ambient music like this great track by Chris Harvey.
All the details about the party can be found here.
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.
