Sorry about not posting a playlist last week. I wish that I could say that there was a good reason for it but there isn’t. I will endeavour to post on a regular schedule from now on. I won’t be posting a music review today but hope to have one posted in the next few days.

Anyway, this week sees a collection of songs from around the world, ranging from Rock to Hip-Hop. You’ll note some familiar faces, such as Russia’s Slava Prox and Germany’s Kevin S. I’ve also decided to introduce some hidden gems in the form of Karl Ramirez from The Philippines and French hip-hop artist Canice. If you like what you hear, be sure to check out these artists because I think that they deserve more people giving them a listen.

  1. Not a Moment Without You by Slava Prox from Breathe Like One [RUS]
  2. No Es Capricia by El Corma [ARG]
  3. Rimes Aux Poings by Track (O’Maxx Prod.) from Révolution Interne [FRA]

  7. Zeiten Aus Gold by Kevin S. from Farben [DEU]
  8. Mizuki by Kinematic from Kites [AUS]
  9. Take a Chance by Zamza from Songs for Jukebox [RUS] [Move is arguably their best album so far, but Songs for Jukebox was what got me interested in their music]
  10. Be Cool by Big Infinite [USA]

Sunday Playlist 02/25/2018

This week’s playlist is another collection of sweet songs about love. I know that I’ve posted a few playlists with this theme but that is because it resonates with me. This time around, I’ve tried to mix the genres up significantly more than usual. You’ll find country, electronic, reggae and at least one song with a bit of a Bee Gees vibe to it.
Human beings are social creatures that need each other. Over time, we make numerous connections with each other. That connection can be for a brief moment as well as a lifelong bond. Whatever the case, human beings crave connection. For many the closest bond is that of a lifelong lover.

  1. You Love by Jai Lynn from Jai Lynn EP [USA]
  2. Beautiful Was the Time by Jarek Laaser from Angel of Heart EP [DEU]
  3. Interlude by Joe Playo from Summer of Joe [USA]

  5. Sweet by Tamara Laurel from Lightning EP [USA]

  7. All My life by Bryyn from Crossing State Lines (album) [USA]
  8. I’ll Wait by Jonathan Dimmel from The Worst and the Best (album) [USA]
  9. Your Sweet Love by Finn Anderson from Oceanic EP [GBR]
  10. Cover Me (album version) by David Krystal from She Sings to Me (album) [CAN]

Sunday Playlist 02/18/2018

This week’s playlist theme is “New Beginnings”. Whether it be sea changes, tree changes or changes in mindset, we’ve all gone through a change at some point in our lives. Whether good or bad, large or minuscule, change is the one constant in our lives. Sometimes, change is forced upon us by circumstance. We are forced to adapt in order to survive but these changes also offer up new possibilities that would otherwise remain unavailable. This playlist attempts to evoke the idea of positive change, change as a chance to become a better version of ourselves and find happiness.

  2. On the Rise by The Green Duck [FRA]
  3. Let’s Get Out by The Moose from Scandinavian Sound (album) [SEW]

  5. Evoke by Killo-gram from Evoke (album) [UKR]
  6. Fresh Start by Anitek from Anitek Instrumentals Vol.1 (album) [USA]
  7. Empty Streets by Omonoko from Animals (album) [GBR]
  8. Two Kids by The DLX [USA]
  9. Portasoul by State Shirt from Lost Hills (album) [USA]
  10. I Shall Cross This River by The Black Atlantic from Reverence for Fallen Trees (album) [NLD]
