As winter gradually loosens its grip on the Northern Hemisphere and we ease our way into spring, people everywhere are finding excuses to spend more time outside. From ambitious darties to brisk chill sessions, time spent outdoors in these transition months can almost always be improved with some tunes. Up and coming artists have not slowed their production at all these last few weeks, and I’ve collected the best for you below. Please hit up the “Vibe guide” below if you want to jump to music that’ll make you feel a certain way.
This time we’re starting off on a chiller, happier vibe with songs that are designed to instill feelings of energy and positivity. Then, as the BPMs go up and the synths get louder, we can start head bumping to some energetic future bass with pop influences. The colorful melodies eventually drop out and are replaced by more experimental, bass-heavy tracks that showcase innovative production techniques. When the beat stabilizes after all that chill trap, you’ll find yourself vibing out to some deep, but pleasant house music for a bit.
The house music eventually fades out to make room for very chill future bass – a calm sub-genre that lets you truly explore the sounds that the producer has arranged for you. Chill future bass slowly becomes less chill, and before we delve into the dark underworld of modern electronica we can enjoy some soaring melodies paired with oscillating bass that make you wanna jump up and down. Then things get intense. For almost the next 30 songs we are going as hard as possible with a mix of trap, techno, and hard deep house. This is the stuff of underground clubs and music festival side stages. In a half-hearted attempt to repair the damage done to you after listening to that, the playlist tapers out with some very chill, very beautiful electronica and a Yeezy remix. Enjoy.
