Slushii – Closer

Slushii has absolutely no chill. His eighth release in three weeks is another high-energy EDM onslaught with crisp beats and smooth vocals that lure you in before he hits you with the satisfying drop. The fact that he has released two originals to go alongside his six remixes shows that he’s not just a copy artist that needs other people’s hooks to make a good song. Looking forward to more from Slushii – check out my profile of his breakout into the EDM scene here

DeltaClub – The Nomadic Alternative

London-based, Italian-born producer DeltaClub has dropped an in-depth, acoustic-influenced track that takes you on a bit of a journey. The exotic, rural vibes from this well-crafted soundscape inspire both relaxation and exploration, while breaks in the melody keep it exciting. It’s a good track to sit down to and give a hard listen. Enjoy below.

Leap

Leap 2

Opportunities like these only come around once every four years so you gotta make the most of them. Welcome to a special leap year edition of my monthly playlist series. This one incorporates songs from the entire, extended month of February (and more!). We start it off slower than usual with some alt-electronica and build ourselves up to some of the catchy EDM that you’ve come to know and love. A bit of hip-hop found its way in there but quickly gives way to high-energy electronica courtesy of coyote kisses and Kap Slap. This eventually fades into the spectrum of chill, tropical-influenced tracks that will clear your head before a brief stint of alternative rock from the likes of VOKES and Gypsy & the Cat. Rock music rapidly translates back into EDM and soon enough you’ll find yourself bobbing your head (or maybe even dancing) to some of the hardest-hitting house tracks I’ve found this month. Once we’re done raging, the rest of the playlist is a slow progression into the most chill songs possible. We always try to end on a nicer note here at the Economix, and this playlist is no exception. Enjoy below and let me know what you think!

Otto Knows – Dying For You (Jetique Remix)

Jetique has provided us with a nice, pleasantly clubby and upbeat remix that’s easy to dance to or set the energy for a study sesh. Bouncing bass combines with Otto Knows’ smooth vocals to make this a great little track. Enjoy below.

AUSTEN – Faded

This low-key jam is coming at us straight out of Australia, a veritable breeding ground for sweet electronic artists nowadays. This seems to be AUSTEN’s first track, but if it is indicative of what’s to come we may have a new star on our hands. Look out for more from her and enjoy the debut track below.

PVRIS – You and I

Boston-based alt-rock band PVRIS has caught my ear with their latest track, “You and I.” Slow verses build up to powerful, danceable choruses that hit the right alternative note. Enjoy below.

Autograf – Heartbeat

It’s the end of the week, an opportunity to relax and enjoy your life. Few things are better than a lazy Friday afternoon, and this chill, happy track from Autograf will perfectly complement your chill sessions. Enjoy below.
