This quirky electronic pop song by Moscow-based musician Jekka has a simple, repeating arpeggiated synth pattern at its base. It seems unremarkable at first, but transforms into the perfect counterpoint to Jekka's soaring, oddly melancholic vocals once she starts singing just under a minute in to the track.
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.
Today on Dezeen Music Project we've got a catchy synth pop track called Lovivore by Anthony Marzi.
If you're enjoying the vibe, you might also like these lo-fi pop songs by Israeli musician Yair Kass.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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".
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.
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.
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.
Dezeen Music Project was behind the decks at PearsonLloyd and Bene's Docklands preview at Hackney House last night. You can check out a few snaps from the event on Facebook here.
This lo-fi track by Yair Kass went down well with the crowd, who were clearly feeling the vintage vibe. As with his track End of the Day that we featured earlier in the year, Baby on My Back gets its retro feel from the old 70s keyboards Yair Kass exclusively used to make it.
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.
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.
