All this week we have been featuring music by different artists as part of our Dezeen Live shows at 100% Design. Have a listen to tracks by all of the other artists we've featured on Dezeen Live shows here.
Dezeen Music Project
On today's Dezeen Live show at 100% Design we'll be featuring a range of different tracks by American designer and musician Glen Lib, who specialises in bouncy, up-beat electronic pop music like this track called Spider String.
All this week we're featuring music by different artists as part of our Dezeen Live shows at 100% Design. We played songs by Strong Asian Mothers on yesterday's show, a band we featured on Dezeen Music Project earlier in the week, and today it's the turn of Portsmouth-based DJ Reset Robot to raise the roof at Earls Court.
This track will give you a taste of what Reset Robot is all about. Taking inspiration from the techno and tech house genres, we think it's exactly the kind of hard-hitting dance music you'd want a robot to make.
Strong Asian Mothers is another east London band, and includes K H U S H I (who we featured on Dezeen Music Project on Friday) on vocals and keyboards. But while Friday's track was gentle and tender, the big, dirty synth that underpins Who Knows? is anything but.
We've never shied away from being eclectic on Dezeen Music Project, so after the glitchy, industrial intensity of Yuri Suzuki's track on Monday, we thought we'd change the vibe up completely with this tender pop song by upcoming east London musician K H U S H I.
The track's tone is set by its warm and fuzzy opening keyboard drone, before building to a gentle crescendo with layered vocal harmonies, chiming acoustic guitar hook and increasingly energetic drums.
Sound artist, designer and musician Yuri Suzuki, who made this radio from an electronic circuit board that looks like the London tube map, has responded to our call-out for tracks to feature on Dezeen Live with his tribute to synth pioneer and Mute records founder Daniel Miller.
If you've also got a track you'd also like to be featured on Dezeen Live, it's easy to get involved. All you need to do is upload it to our Soundcloud account here.
Fuzzy, buzzing synths are the order of the day on this track by Tel Aviv-based artist Kobi Glas, with a smattering of the more effervescent, shimmering kind for good measure. But with strong melodies and a dynamic beat, there's plenty here for non-synth fanatics too.
Here's a dose of catchy electro-pop courtesy of Tel Aviv band The Young Professionals. The track is an upbeat remix of a song by emerging Brooklyn indie band The Echo Friendly, which is well worth checking out too.
We've featured loads of other great pop tracks of all different types on Dezeen Music Project, so have a listen to them here here.
We often feature dubstep tracks on Dezeen Music Project, but we haven't had any drum and bass for a while. This track starts off with a chilled-out, melancholy vibe, but it doesn't take long for Vancouver-based producer Carpe Noctem to drop in a full-blown D&B beat.
Budapest DJ Fine Cut Bodies has remixed the first part of the classic Mike Oldfield album Tubular Bells. The track is a competition entry for an Indaba Music remix contest to commemorate the release of the original record, and you can listen to the other remixes the track is up against here.
Make sure you also check out the excellent Fine Cut Bodies remix of Fever Ray track Keep the Streets Empty for Me that we featured on Dezeen Music Project back in June.
Online music label Curious Absurdities has contributed some great chill-out tracks to Dezeen Music Project over the past few months (check them out here), but this instrumental composition by Japanese artist Yu-Chi is something very different. In fact, existing somewhere between the beautiful and the bizarre, Marks of a Tear isn't much like anything we've featured on Dezeen Music Project before.
The track comes from Yu-Chi's recently released album Monochrome Clown, which is well worth a listen and is available to download for free.
We're rounding off the week on Dezeen Music Project with this funky remix of an old school Afrika Bambaataa track by Beirut producer Trash Inc.
This soothing instrumental is the latest track by Helsinki-based musician Cillian Warfield. A delicate acoustic guitar picking pattern forms the basis of the track, from which mournful horns and eerie bell sounds emerge as the track builds up, before fading back down again in a gentle swell.
Listen to the other chill-out tracks on Dezeen Music Project here.
