Rising DJ and producer Cassian has just dropped an ethereal wonder. The latest addition to the flourishing artist’s discography, ‘Magic’ is a fusion of ethereal pop and alt-dance that makes for a simmering sunset vibe.
Tender, whimsical synths coax listeners into a dreamstate while Phil Slabber of Crooked Colours provides silky, evocative vocals on the track under the alias Zolly.
‘Magic’ is a burst of escapism, sending the psyche into an exploration of love and loss. This is the latest release on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Rose Avenue imprint, which launched last fall.
This track is another example of the Sydney native’s rapidly evolving skill, as it comes after the release of several massive remixes, including two reworks on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s double Solace REMIXED album, ‘Treat You Better’ and ‘Eyes’ with Durante.
Cassian has proven himself to be a versatile, gifted artist and we cannot wait to see where the future takes him. In the mean time, we’ll be grooving to ‘Magic.’ Listen here.
Roy Rosenfeld burst out of the underground scene in Israel
to become a globally recognized talent, and thank goodness he did. Rosenfeld
has returned to All Day I Dream for an alluring four-track EP that fits right
in with the label’s mystical, emotive, and unique approach to deep house.
“Rumbala” makes the hair on your skin stand up. It makes
your body tingle. It wakes up all your senses. It tells a story of darkness to
light. It’s both creepy and beautiful, and it could be Rosenfeld’s best work to
date. Each track beautifully portrays an emotion— melancholy, desire,
curiosity, or pure bliss— without any gimmicks or added lyrics. “Rumbala” is
deep house in its raw form, yet at the same time seems to push the boundaries
for what the genre can hold.
Rosenfeld has always believed that music should not be “one note.” The artist strives to break the rules and inspire uniqueness. This EP is a triumph of that mission. “Rumbala” allows the listener to be totally present, and in doing so, allows for an escape.
I know my posts have been few and far between this summer. While still trying to land some kind of steady job, I have not been able to really get back into any sort of regular flow of posting. Then came the depression and all shit just went to hell. The worst is far behind me now and I want to get back into working around the things that I love. This blog has always been a part of me and while I know it barely gets any traffic anymore, it still gives me a chance to collect and share all of the music that inspires me every day.
I will soon be launching a new site to compliment AlwaysHustle. The new site (FutureFeels.com) will be focused around the relationship between music and fashion. It will have few words and lots of imagery and hopefully it will connect two of my passions in a way that will get people excited about what your favorite artists are wearing.
I have also taken on a new gig at MagneticMag.com where I will be managing their hip hop content. I have lots of great things in the works and with time I hope to connect all of these projects under my Quickstrike Media brand and establish a true platform for the content I love and really care about. I will keep you all posted on everything and for now I have 2 playlists filled with dope music for you to check out. Enjoy and I’ll hopefully have more posts for you soon.
This track is perfect for today’s gloomy LA weather. GLXY is another producer that I know very little about (go figure), but after creeping on his soundcloud I can see that he has an ep coming out soon, which will hopefully be filled with tracks just like “Promise”. There is a dark and sort of erie feeling to this song but it also has this infectious bass line that reminds me of some flume tracks from the past. A solid vocal sample finishes off the song beautifully and we are left with yet another track for the AH “Feeling This” series. Well done GLXY. Be sure to give him a follow at one of the links below.
Monstercat continues to work with some of the best producers on earth including the man behind this post, Dutch born San Holo. His Victory EP is just brilliant. The production quality and melody selections are top tier and I would pay good money to see this guy live. The only issue I have with this project is that it’s only 3 tracks long! I first heard the title track “Victory” about a week ago and decided to wait for the full release before posting. I know I’ve posted a lot of EPs today but you can’t slow this music down and as long as it keeps coming my way, I’ll do my best to keep it going out to you. Enjoy!
