It’s Tuesday and it’s that time again. Five at 5, headed your way. Tune in.
The Indiecision Five at 5 is our attempt at sharing our musical tastes with you, and showcasing music from around the world. Each weekday at 5pm sharp, one NH7 writer or staffer will bring you five songs he/she is listening to on the day. Adwait Patil is back on the decks today, so sit tight and enjoy the ride.
1. The Glitch Mob – ‘The Prodigy – Breathe (Remix)’
Remixing The Prodigy is high risk. You don’t want to get a Prodigy song wrong and spoil your electronic music cred. The Glitch Mob remix tampers with the tempo of the original and also includes a few heavy drum and bass sections. The track was included on the Added Fat Reissue EP.
2. FuzzCulture – “Do We Get A Grammy Now?’
I haven’t figured out what category of electronic music FuzzCulture fit in. At no point does the track seem boring and warrants a high volume playback on speakers throughout. Also after listening to the track, I heard someone say, ”Can totally see this song being used in a video edit!”. If you like the song, you can download it for free.
3. Grizmatik – ‘Digital Liberation Is Mad Freedom’
Both individuals Griz and Gramatik are known to infuse funk, soul and breakbeat in an electronic soundscape. This song is a great example of what the first line meant.
4. Bonobo – ‘Cirrus’
Bonobo’s new track Cirrus is from his upcoming album, slated to release sometime this year. The track is a musical journey and Bonobo’s the conductor. Delicate hi-hat work, different samples of bells (or xylophones?) and a steadily growing bass-line are what hold this track together. The track is up for a free download here and it also has an interesting music video.
5. Torres – ‘Don’t Run Away, Emilie’
Torres is Mackenize Scott, a 22 year old singer-songwriter from Nashville. This is my favourite track from her debut record. It’s simple, clean and honest music, according to me. Scott’s vocals blend effortlessly with the the minimal music created.
