Welcome to this week’s edition of Sunday 5elect, where Economix readers get insight into the top five tracks dominating my headphones right now. This week has a downtempo vibe that spans across genres. Look out for more from the Economix later this week! Enjoy below.
1. Crywolf – Quantum Immortality
His first single since his hit album Cataclasm, “Quantum Immortality” is an intense reminder of why we love Crywolf so much. Raw emotion seeps through the vocals, and the instrumental is a captivating blend of alt-rock and electronica.
2. Motez & Wax Motif – Like You
The best house jams are catchy and upbeat, and “Like You” by Motez & Wax Motif is a perfect example. The bass is bouncy and perfectly accentuated by mid-level synths for a full, crisp feeling.
3. Rich Chigga – Who That Be (Stööki Sound Remix)
Trip hop is an addictive genre. Witty lyricism pair with hype beats to make for absolute bangers. Stööki sound’s remix of “Who That Be” is no exception.
4. Lane 8 – With Me
Lane 8 is the king of downbeat house music, and his latest release “With Me” is catchy, yet calming. A killer baseline slowly evolves into full-fledged track as the song goes on, showcasing Lane 8’s production and mastering skill.
5. Tycho – Descent (Burning Man Sunrise Set 2016)
Burning Man is one of the most dynamic and unique art events in the world, and Tycho decided to add to that great tradition by playing an indie-EDM set every year as the sun rises over the desert. It’s a beautiful mix that starts out with heavy ambient vibes and slowly gains pace throughout – an ode to that time of the day that is rarely seen.
