Dezeen Music Project: Global Love
by LogOut

Dutch musician LogOut has got a new album out called Little Things Buried in Concrete, released last month on Inner Ear Records, which this guitar-driven track is taken from.

The production is quite a departure from the stripped-down sound of LogOut's previous album, Paper Plane Flight Recorder, which we featured a track from last year. But his ear for a catchy melody remains unchanged.

You can buy the new album here.

Dezeen Music Project: Options
by Gazelle

Gazelle is another South African group that we discovered at the Design Indaba Music Circuit in Cape Town last week. As this track called Options demonstrates, Gazelle fuse traditional African music with elements from the electro, disco and synth-pop genres to create an eclectic sound that they call Lim Pop.

Make sure that you also check out the excellent track Ear Salad by South African artist DJ Kimon, which we featured in the first movie from Cape Town as part of our Dezeen and MINI World Tour.

Dezeen Music Project: Position To Fly
by Strong Asian Mothers

The first three movies from our Dezeen Live series of talks filmed at 100% Design will feature tracks by east London band Strong Asian Mothers, so we thought it was time to put some more of their tracks up on Dezeen Music Project.

This track is called Position To Fly and is full of catchy vocal hooks, big beats and even bigger bass-lines. Watch out for the tasty horn section that comes in towards the end of the track too.

You can listen to more Strong Asian Mothers tracks on Dezeen Music Project here, and watch today's Dezeen Live movie featuring Tom Hulme, design director at IDEO, here.

Dezeen Music Project: Grandma Got Groove
by It Takes Two To Tango

The fantastically mellow groove on this track by UK producer It Takes Two To Tango is as chilled-out as it is soulful. If French duo Air ever recorded a track with Bill Withers, this is what it would sound like.

Make sure you also check out It Takes Two To Tango's remix of Settle Down by Kimbra that we featured on Dezeen Music Project earlier in the year.

Dezeen Music Project: Electric Fizz
by Mykus, featuring Fruit Shoes

Here's another collaboration between UK producer Mykus and the singer Fruit Shoes, who are fast becoming Dezeen Music Project favourites. Just like their previous tracks Carrots and A Blemish, Electric Fizz is a glitchy mix of stuttering rhythms and mashed up samples that feels like it's on the verge of falling apart at any moment. It's a genuinely unique sound and well worth a listen.

If you like what you hear, make sure you check out the other tracks by Mykus and Fruit Shoes that we've featured on Dezeen Music Project so far.

Dezeen Music Project: When You Start
by K H U S H I

East London musician K H U S H I is enjoying a seriously creative streak, bringing out a new track almost every week. We featured his first track on Dezeen Music Project earlier in the month, and this new one follows in a similar vein. Alternately soaring and intimate vocal melodies drive the song forward, with unshowy but effective keyboard and guitar parts providing backing and occasional embellishment.

If you like what you hear, make sure you check out other great tracks by K H U S H I on his Soundcloud page.

Dezeen Music Project: Seven Years Old
by K H U S H I

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.

Dezeen Music Project: Same Mistakes (remix)

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.

Dezeen Music Project: Bee
by Efrat Ben Zur

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.

Dezeen Music Project: Burning Flowers
by Underwater Firemen

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.
