This time remixing their favourite already released track of Kygos highly anticipated new Album “Cloud Nine”. The natively melodic house driven duo from Cologne, Germany indeed got a little trendy on this one. However not intentionally aiming to try something new, their bump into future bass just happened and “it feels good not always being bond to a specific genre”.
A collaboration with the South African, Beirut based vocalist Mia V. was in line since their ways crossed during an Interview on the lebanese Radio but it took almost two years to finally come to live. Saxity proves again that they’re all about bridging the gap between live musicianship and electronic music to bring rawer musicality back on the dancefloor.

Brand new music video released by the nineteen year old Mira Aasma. Video made by Linn Carlson. Check it out!
It’s hard to believe that at the age of just nineteen, Gothenburg born vocalist Mira Aasma’s music is filled with such maturity and grace. The compelling sound of her voice has made her comparable to other celebrated artists including Florence and the Machine. Mira’s previous single Ghost started getting her music noticed in her home country, Sweden. Additionally, in the UK she began receiving more attention-with multiple plays on Amazing Radio. Mira continues to demonstrate her talent as she not only written but also arranged and produced all of the songs on her upcoming EP, Stereoscope.
During Whale Song, the electronic beats combined with the soothing vocals produce a unique track that can be compared to music by notable artists including Daughter and London Grammar. The pace quickens towards the end of the song whilst the drumbeat accelerates, very MS MR-esque, which leaves the listener captivated and engaged throughout.
Mira Aasma is an artist worth watching out for, as 2016 already looks promising for her. Whale Song is released now, since the 8th April 2016, on Birds Records.
Australian singer/songwriter Hayden Calnin is a self-produced musician who is passionate about his music; since receiving a guitar at age fourteen, Hayden hasn’t gone a single day without playing it. His determination to push himself sonically as well as artistically has helped him gain international acclaim, including sync placements on numerous USA TV shows such as Suits, Parenthood,Teen Wolf and the UK and Japanese trailers for recently Oscar-nominated, Room.
Hayden’s new single Ultra-Beast is a folktronic euphonious track with the overall tone resembling work from celebrated artists including Dawn Golden and Bon Iver. The song begins softly with a synthesized clap that continues throughout the piece-highlighting Hayden’s diversity in the arrangement of his music. The piece edges towards the more electronic side, resembling sounds from The XX. Moreover, the production of Ultra-Beast is comparable to that of Dawn Golden and M83. Hayden incorporates the ethereal sound and a rich use of reverb, which combined with his impassioned vocals, creates a beautifully delicate piece of music. The vocal delivery from Hayden has been compared to the sound of Foals singer Yannis Philippakisin their track Give It All.
Hayden was recently described by Stereogum as a folktronic artist that specializes in lush, spacious, genre-bending excursions. More could be said of this new single; however there is a notable switch in songwriting here from the trademark, leftfield arrangements of Hayden Calnin, to a single which should reach a different audience with a wider reach.
To explain, this is partly down to co-producing the new record with Tim Carr (Matt Corby) and this new single is an apparent step towards what is to come over the coming months with Cut Love Pt 2 due for release 13th May.
Ultra-Beast exhibits Hayden’s classic spectrum of sound, whilst demonstrating the ability to assembling songs with a commercial arrangement and is taken from his upcoming record Cut Love Pt.2.
We are definitely looking forward to May 13th.
We have just created our own Spotify Account. To celebrate we have thrown together a Chill playlist which we hope to continuously update with new music.
Check out our first playlist (of many) and follow for great new music!
