Black Van – Fen Fires

Feeling this one. First off, if you are new to Hamburg’s own Black Van….get acquainted. This side project of Kris Menace and KoweSix have been doing things right for quite some time. This latest original finds them back in their zone. Quality tunes with a darker edge. This one has that futuristic type, aggressive yet dreamy energy that we love.Sure to breathe new life into your after-hours or commute through the smog ridden wasteland,  throw this on as you get ready for a night out and never look back.  Quality Tune. Binary approves.

Goldroom – Embrace (Cyclist Remix)

With The Ep still in full-on repeat mode, Toronto’s Cyclist takes lead single Embrace down a shimmery groovy path…and we are loving it. From the initial heart felt synth notes to the sunny groove to come, this one feels so nice. Vocals soar and an introspective, almost bitter sweet vibe takes the already gorgeous original in a different and beautiful direction. Enough gushing, check the track. TUNE! Happy Wednesday.

Goldroom is back with a fresh new EP titled ‘Embrace,’ and the title track will have you clinging to memories of summertime as we briskly drift into the fall. Lending wonderful vocals on the track is Melbourne based singer/songwriter Ariela Jacobs. ‘Embrace’ is a fairly dancey song, with soft synths stabs and all of the songwriting elements to make it a pleasing slice of pop perfection that will be on repeat in your headphones for months. The release will be followed up by a full North American live tour, beginning this week in Chicago – all dates can be found here. Check out the beautiful song below, and catch them on the road soon!
