New Music #05/06

chillsoundsgoodmusic
It's Wednesday already, so we're closer to the weekend. Let's celebrate that with some good music.

Emmit Fenn finally released his debut EP. He's a frequent guest on csgm that month. I like all of his songs but Painting Greys was my favorite... until today, I think. It's because of the Stones - the seventh track from Prologue. I can't say that it's better than the Painting Greys yet, but it's at least as good. It has the same climate and that hook is amazing too! I recommend you to listen to the whole EP - it's really great!

I believe that I don't have to introduce JACKAL to you because that guy is well-known for his earlier productions. He released his highly-anticipated Endorphins EP two weeks ago - I've heard it today and I fell in love with Little Threads that is made with Foy. It's a really powerful one!


JACKAL - Little Threads (feat. Foy)

I played that song for the first time and I thought "OMG, it's MJ... or Bruno Mars... or both of them". Then I opened a press pack and I have read "Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars in his sound". OK, so now I'm sure that I'm not deaf! But what about the song? Drench Me With Your Lust is the newest single by London-based producer AMiR and is so cool and full of good vibes that you immediately want to dance.


AMiR - Drench Me With Your Lust

Must admit that this post is a little bit different than usual. Instead of electronic bangers, we've got a lot of indie-pop gems. Another one is Yosemite by London-based Hider. It's a really nice chillin' track with a lot of summer vibes and an interesting vocal. You can repeat it a whole day.


Hider - Yosemite

Is there anyone here who doesn't like NoMBe's voice? I love it, but the original versions of his songs don't charm me so much. That's why I'm always trying to find some remixes of NoMBe's tracks. And when we're talking about Wait the best remix is made by James Carter. I don't know why but with all that electronic sounds even the background guitars sounds better.


NoMBe - Wait (James Carter Remix)

You have to be really careful when you're trying to do something with any Lupe Fiasco song because that guy is so good at what he does. So, I've heard a lot of shitty remixes or covers of Lupe's songs, but I have to admit that this time we're dealing with a quite different situation. Rendition made by Noah., Rich The Kid and Sha Mula gives that song a second life. It's completely different than the original and probably that's why it's so great.

Did you have a bad day? I have a recipe - lay down on your bed, open a bottle of your favorite beer (or whatever you like), take a big sip and play The Recipe by Kai Straw. I've heard this San Francisco's guy for the first time today but I have to hear his other songs because that one is simply great!


Kai Straw - The Recipe

Ohhhh, good old new jack swing! If you're missing it you HAVE TO listen to the new song by Lido and THEY.. It really sounds like a mix of a best Bobby Brown's songs with some old N'Sync style. Yeah, I know that this description sounds awful, but the song not! To be honest, I'm fascinated by it.

New Music #04/06

chillsoundsgoodmusic
Hi there! We have a really beautiful, warm Tuesday here in Poland, so it's a perfect day to share some great music with you.

Woodes has appeared on csgm only once so far - when I wrote about her Daggers & Knives, but I know her self-titled EP inside out. It met with a huge critical acclaim, but it doesn't surprise me because it was a piece of pure art. Now she's back with her new single and I have to shout "WOAH!". Run For It is even better than her previous tracks. That melody reminds me of the best Woodkid's productions. It's so powerful!

Woodes - Run For It



official website

After that strong beginning, we have to chill down a little bit. No More by Alex Lustig should be perfect for that. He is a Belgian musician who's building his reputation as a solo artist. He made his newest track in collaboration with Akacia (you may know her voice from phenomenal Gold that she made with Cabu) and OnCue. On this track, Alex was trying to mix ambient deep chords with hip-hop and slight trap elements. What can I say? He achieved his goal! Listen to that song and fly.

Let's come back to the more lively songs. The first one is by LO - he's a Mannheim-based artist, emerging from the scene of bedroom producers. His new single is made with Norwegian R&B singers Andreyun and Louam. So, he found them and probably now he's seeing Colors Of The Sun. Thanks to that collaboration, we have a song with a fun, bouncy electronic beat, but it also has an R&B and hip-hop vibes. Cool!

Now it's time for the first and only remix on that post. Varien took The Wolf by Savoy and Bright Lights and put some really hard vibes into it. It's starting softly and warming up gently but when it comes to the drop... Woohoo, guys! It's trippy, it's dope, it's devastating, it's great! Check it out:


Savoy x Bright Lights - The Wolf (Varien Remix)



official website

Here comes the hardest part. Because I don't even know what to say, I just have no words. You need to know that Florence Welch is my goddess and I also love the climate of Lana del Rey songs. And you know what? London-based Marna sounds like an illegitimate child of that two artists. Her debut is so good that it's beyond my imagination. I can only laugh because "marna" in Polish means "paltry" - and she's definitely not paltry! I'm telling you - HAVE. AN. EYE. ON. HER!


Marna - Crossfire




My Polish readers surely know that I have a huge respect for Scandinavian artists. In these times, they often set the direction in which the modern music will follow. So, you shouldn't be surprised that I fell in love with a second single by Danish duo WIINSTON. It's full of dark R&B vibes and it's one of these songs, that you should listen with your eyes closed.


WIINSTON - Mio



twitter

Did I mention that I love Scandinavian artists? Yeah, so here's another one! LINES is a four-piece band from the capital of Sweden. They made a really huge debut two months ago with their song Weekend and now they're back with their follow up. It's called You and I think that it's even better than Weekend. It's so catchy - I loved that hook and that verse especially: "Yeah, it's you - always on my mind (...) all the fuckin' time!". Great song!


LINES - You



official website

I love groovy hip-hop mixed with funk as much as Scandinavian artists. That's why we're ending with a Late Night by Pierre Andrews, Wes Writer and Larry g(EE). Feel that vibes and stay tuned!

New Music #03/06

chillsoundsgoodmusic
OK, so that post should appear on csgm more than a week ago, but last week was really crazy, so sorry for that.

Let's start with Welcome To LA by Oliver Tree. I've heard about that guy a couple of times, he even appeared on csgm on the occasion of writing about Whethan. Must admit that I still don't know what to think about him. I have mixed feelings about his stage image and about his flow in some songs, but I must admit that this one is just a perfect banger. Maybe it's finally time to warm to that guy.

Oliver Tree - Welcome To LA



official website

If you're familiar with csgm for some time, you have to know Cosmos & Creature. I wrote about that LA duo (BTW, I didn't even realize that they are a couple until today) few times and now they're here one more time. They could call their new song Bad Drug, but don't be fooled by it. It's a piece of a really catchy and good music drug.

Cosmos & Creature - Bad Drug



official website

Emmit Fenn appeared already on csgm this month, but if it wasn't enough for you, we have another music gem by that Californian artist. This time he surprised me so much! 'Cause, you know, when I'm thinking about Emmit Fenn, I'm hearing his gentle ballads with deep, mesmerizing vocal. Oceans is completely different - it's a portion of a really great electronic with a guest appearance by Nylo. Amazing (still it doesn't change the fact that Painting Greys is my no. 1)!

A funny coincidence: when I wrote about PLS&TY last time, it was a song that he made in a collaboration with Cosmos & Creature. Today we have new tracks from both of that artists. Of course, PLS&TY is almost on the top of a future bass scene, so we should expect a portion of a really good electronic. You know what? He didn't disappoint me! Moreover, it's crazy that Run Wild reminds me somehow of my hometown artist that you certainly don't know. Her name is Ifi Ude and she's mixing modern electronic with a music that's derived from her Nigerian roots. It was a really unique blend, so I'm happy that we've got another representative of that crazy style.


PLS&TY - Run Wild




If we're talking about blending genres, here's another one from that school. DROELOE is a Dutch electronic duo - they created a lot of great originals and remixes, so if you're not familiar with them, I recommend to check their SoundCloud profile. So, their new track is named JUMP and it's an experimental electronic production which is mixed with an amazing pop vocal by Nevve - it's a really great blend because I truly want to jump with Nevve to the sounds of that song. BTW this girl is born for collaborations like that - just listen to Elevate or Sirens


DROELOE - JUMP (ft. Nevve)



twitter

After all these lively songs, it's time to listen to something way more soothing, but also dark. Forever Young is the third single by Parisian duo SACRE, but the first their song that I've heard. I fell in love with it for the first time, because it's so freaking chilling and disturbing at the same time. WOW! It's really fresh - and it should be because if you want to be forever young, you have to do something fresh - not just another remix of that old Alphaville hit.


SACRE - Forever Young



official website

If someone asked me to describe csgm vibes in a few words I should play that song. Because, holy shit, it got everything that I love! Electronic sounds? Checked! Nice bass? Checked! Some mainstream vibes? Checked! Charming and fascinating vocal? Checked! It's LA-based Xie first original (in a collaboration with V!RTU) and I want more, more and more! Brilliant!


Xie & V!RTU - Just Like Me



twitter - V!RTU

We're ending with a song that truly stole my heart. I can't even say what I love more - that chill giving, R&B vocals or maybe that pure, perfect production. Both ladies are amazing on that one! There's one thing that I'm sure - it'll be on my playlist for a looooong time!


TOKiMONSTA - Don't Call Me (ft. Yuna)

New Music #02/06

chillsoundsgoodmusic
It's time to fulfill the promise that I made yesterday and deliver some new music to you. Let's see what I've found.

The first one is made by Wallflower. I've heard about that producer from the United States yesterday and I truly don't know anything about him, except that he made an unbelievable track. Lost On The Island is a pure masterpiece - Two Feet should be jealous of it. Why Two Feet? Because when I've heard that song I thought about him at first. That bass, that guitar, that vocal - it's really similar to Two Feet's productions. And yeah - it's also too short. I would be happy to hear a longer version of it.

Wallflower - Lost On The Island



soundcloud

Then we've got a new proposition from Tim Legend. After a huge success of his recent song, he made another track in a collaboration with Colin Dieden - the vocalist of the alt-rock band The Mowgli's. Quicksand has probably the sickest beat that I've heard this week. This hook is really crazy and I'm in love with it.

Tim Legend - Quicksand (feat. Colin Dieden)

I also felt in love with the new KR$CHN remix. He worked on a new Mothica song and he made it even a little bit darker than the original. Disturbing, electronic sounds creates a unique atmosphere.

Mothica - Self Destructive (KR$CHN REMIX)



facebook

It's always nice to hear something new from GHOST LOFT. His remixes of Overdose by Little Daylight and Let It Go by The Neighbourhood appears on a csgm earlier, so it's finally time for some original. His latest song is called Holding On and it's definitely the most chilling song from that post. It has so melancholic atmosphere - it's beautiful.

GHOST LOFT - Holding On

twitter

You don't have to take some Vicodin to get high. Good music is enough for that. For example, you can listen to the latest track by LA-based CVBZ. Vicodin is really great. And you know what? I changed my mind - it has an as sick hook as Quicksand.

CVBZ - Vicodin

We're turning back to some darker vibes. Looking Back by Ashdown is a really well-produced track with an interesting vocal. You're not gonna be looking back for other songs if you heard that one.

Ashdown - Looking Back



facebook
twitter

OK, if someone said me a few days ago, that I'll write about Miley Cyrus on csgm, I would laugh at him. But here it is and I still can't believe it. Kiso replaced Miley's vocals with Yvette and took that song to another level, thanks to the electronic beat. This is what I call 'perfect remix'.

Miley Cyrus - Malibu feat. Yvette (Kiso Remix)



facebook
twitter

And here's the last one. But the last one doesn't mean the worst. To be honest, it's pretty amazing. Through To You is made by Australian Tobiahs and it's very multigenre. A soulful vocal is mixed with an electronic (I can even say "a little bit jungle") beat what gives a nice composition. I'm addicted!

Tobiahs - Through To You

New Music #01/06 (Part II)

chillsoundsgoodmusic

read the 1st part of this post here

When I'm thinking about Ashe, I'm hearing extremely positive sounds of Can't Hide by Whethan. From now on, I'll be hearing even more of that sounds, because her Used To It have the most optimistic beat ever. You can't say that about the new song by London duo TENDER. Their song is definitely more dark and mysterious - exactly as I expected, knowing their earlier songs such as Violence.

Ashe - Used To It



facebook

You were missing the positive vibes, weren't you? Calm down, I have more of them for you. Just listen to this extraordinary remix of Jocelyn Alice's Bound To You. It was made by Pluto - I'm usually trying to avoid putting the same artist in one post twice, but this remix is so amazing that I have to make an exception.

Jocelyn Alice - Bound To You (Pluto Remix)



facebook - Pluto

The second remix on that playlist is made by it's different and Kivnon. They reached for Prblms by 6LACK and they put a soul of classic hip-hop in it, then mixed it with some fresh electronics. Next one is a Fairytale by BLESSED. Am I the only one who sings "The 21st night of September" right after the first verse? It's stronger than me!

6LACK - Prblms (it's different x Kivnon Remix)

If you're looking for some powerful voice that suits perfectly to soul-pop songs, you have to check a new song by ENISAGlory Days contains everything that delighted me in her Burn This Bridge.

ENISA - Glory Days



facebook

Last two songs on playlists are new propositions from artists who appeared on a csgm earlier. It's I'm a Dreamer by Violet Days (a truly pop masterpiece that I want to hear on a Polish radio stations) and Woman by Emmit Fenn (atmospheric ballad - maybe not as good as Painting Greys but still worth your attention).

Violet Days - I'm a Dreamer

Emmit Fenn - Woman




It's everything from me right now. Hope that in a few days I'll have another playlist for you.

New Music #01/06 (Part I)

chillsoundsgoodmusic
OK, after that long introduction it's time to share the first portion of a good music with you. I was thinking about sharing music in a form of playlists but Hype Machine doesn't support them, so I have to write about each song separately. Of course, you can still find my monthly playlists on my SoundCloud profile.

See what I have for you today.

Let's start with some incredible bass bangers. The first one is made by Pluto with a guest appearance of MAX. I think that its only rival in a 'Best Turn-On-The-Bass Songs of 2017" is a Savage by Whethan (yeah, I know, that one is from 2016, but I'm still listening to it). Wait... MAX has been featured also in that one. Is that guy born to singing songs like that? I don't know but he's definitely maxing it.

Pluto - Fight For You (feat. MAX)




I also have the new Two Feet's song called Had Some Drinks. It's hard to say how many times I've heard Go Fuck Yourself last year, so I'm really glad that their new track is based on the same pattern. We have calm verses mixed with a really huge bass drops and the characteristic guitar in the background. Yeah, you may say that it's exactly the same thing played one more time in a different way, but who cares? If you think so, I have one message for you: go fuck yourself!

Two Feet - Had Some Drinks



facebook

If you need to slow down a little, I recommend listening to Simple by Autograf and Victoria Zaro. This light house track has perfect vibes for a weekend getaway from town. Then we're slowing down even a little bit more because it's time for Layna's Agonist. That one gives me chills every time I listen to it. Amazing voice, amazing beat!

Autograf - Simple (feat. Victoria Zaro)



facebook - Layna

Last December I wrote about a great debut by Toronto-based band HONORS. 10 days ago they came back with a second single. Say Yes is as good as Over, so it's another song on my playlist. I also really love funk, so I'm glad that I've found Over My Shoulder by Two Another. Good funk always makes everything easier!

HONORS - Say Yes




Two Another - Over My Shoulder


facebook

Next song on the list sounds like it has been made especially for me. It mixes great synth sounds with a vibe of 2000's hip-hop. The result of collaboration between LOXETĀLĀ, and Soule reminds me of first Skizzy Mars' mixtape somehow. I loved that album, so it's a huge compliment.

LOXE x TĀLĀ x Soule - Another Day

Hello!

Two days ago I wrote my last Polish-language post. For more than 4 years I have been enjoying writing for Polish people, but three days ago - maybe I should say "finally" - the decision was made. It's time to switch to the language of Shakespeare.

<now there'll be a long 'blah blah blah'; if you're interested in music only, wait for the next post>

I started csgm back on 2013 when I was a 'care-about-nothing' college guy. I had a scholarship, so I wasn't interested in working so much. I had a lot of free-time that I was spending on having fun (oh yeah - 'having fun' could have so many meanings ^^) and searching the Internet to find some great new music. One day, my good friend asked me:
- klsk, where do you find this whole music?
- On YouTube, on SoundCloud, but mostly on a foreign music blogs, which serves some good music daily.
- So, why haven't you started that kind of blog yet?

That was a good idea, so I decided to put it into practice. Firstly, I was writing only for my friends, who have a similar music taste. Back then I had no idea, that csgm will ever turn into that great thing, that it is right now. 

After a few months of writing about music, csgm gets its first likes from unknown people. In the same year, I got the first e-mail with a music directly from a band. To be honest, it wasn't something special, but I was so excited, that I wrote about their song immediately. Everything went great until the monster called 'adult life' came and said 'you're mine now!'. 

Full-time job and a lot of other things caused that I stopped writing systematically. There were only short breaks at the beginning, but then they extended to a few days, few weeks, few months...

Right now, after another 3-month long hiatus, I have a more than 17k unread e-mails. There's no ability to read them all, but in the meantime, I found a lot of really great music and I want to share it with you. So, I looked at all these Analytics data and I draw some conclusions. For a lot of time, most of the entries on my blog are from English-language countries. I have more followers on HypeMachine than on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ put together. I had no choice. I decided to say 'CU' to all my Polish fans and try to take my chances in English.

I must admit that I wanted to wait for my new website, but when I realized that I bought a domain for it almost two years ago, I decided to start it right here, right now. Maybe it's a wrong decision, but you know, I think that it'll be like:


So, I'm here - in a front of a new challenge, but I'm pretty sure that it'll be a really nice experience, too. Saying "Hello" to you with a hope that you'll find some extraordinary music gems here.

Now it's time for some music.

All the best,
