POINT OF VIEW INTERVIEW #34

PRODUCER/DJ: MADNAP

I remember seeing a remix EP on, but the only place to discover new and cool things, Twitter, from an artist named, Khai. He featured a few artists to remix his track "Do You Go Up," and I distinctly remember an artist named, Madnap  just blowing it out of the water with his version! Right from then on, Madnap was an artist I had to keep my eye on! With starting his own music artist collective called, Paper Crane, to doing shows in LA and with Brownies and Lemonade, his journey is only just beginning. Currently studying music abroad in London, Madnap has also found his way to do a few shows in the UK too! From sweet and soft tunes like his Darum Direct release, "Moving On," to bright and upbeat tracks like his remix of Kanye West's "Heartless" and his collab with Naisu titled, "Jasmine," his SoundCloud is filled with beautiful music for your ears to enjoy. Originally from Chicago, Illinois,  he is already reaching 9k fol…

NEW SLUGABED TRACK

Image
"AWW MAN"
It has been quite some time since slugabed released a new one and his remix of "Aww Man" is just what we needed. Winding synths and snares, this strong rap beat will get you cranking up your speaker to a 10.

NEW AIRYNORE REMIX

Image
"YOUR NAME" - GOOD INTENTWritten by: McTavish Jones In Airynore’s remix of Good Intent's "Your Name," Airynore morphs the song from a smooth R&B ballad to a funky future dance tune. The soft brass synths compliment the sharp LFOs. The vocals are then processed through a vocoder giving it a retro and groovy feel. Then we are greeted with a bit crushed melody in the back tickling the listener's ears. If you enjoy the feeling of being in a future disco club, then this track is definitely for you.

"GREAT DAY"
It's a playful tune that will rattle your ears! Squeaks and drips of sweet sounds, Gupi will make you smile with his new track, "Great Day." This hyper track is a trap daydream that can make anybody's day great and feel spontaneous. Bouncing off the walls with obnoxious positivity, the song ends your trip in a slow yet almost sarcastic "Wow. What a great day." The track is a rush of good feelings and excitement.

NEW ABSRDST REMIX

"PUPPY PARADE" - FOXSKY (ABSRDST REMIX)
ABSRDST sure surprised us with his new remix of Foxsky's hyper rave "Puppy Parade." Via Trekkie Trax, barking bass and your old school "Who let the dogs out" phrase hitting the scene, who knew dogs could musically make us throw our unforgiving trap arms in the air. ABSRDST gave us a beautifully constructed version of "Puppy Parade" who's intro starts in a caress of vocals which then leads into a snapping dubstep bass drop and bubbly synths.
