Song of the Day: High Tide – Caz Aglets

This week, there’s a load of promising upcomers filling up the Song of the Day hotspot and it’s CAZ AGLETS‘ turn to take the limelight with track ‘High Tide’, taking from his album ‘Void’ released in November.

What’s so remarkable is that this guy has written and produced the album before his 18th birthday. When you do have a spare moment, please do check out ‘Void’ and you’d think it was created by someone way beyond his years. ‘High Tide’ is a prime example of the intricate and complex arrangements that’s presented in the album: featuring a tampered downtempo bass, the single is topped off by a vibrant female vocal, giving the production that edgy sensation. ‘High Tide’ is an acquired taste, but it deserves nothing less than pure admiration for the hard work.

There’s more material on the way from this boundary pusher, so stay tuned…for now, have a go at ‘High Tide’.

EP Review: Heads In The Clouds – NOËP

NOËP‘s latest body of work, ‘Heads In Clouds’ opens up and introduces a rich and crispy light arrangements, showcasing electro folk and an alternative spin to pop music…but where the journey ends with this five-track set becomes totally unexpected…

After servings of more electro-tinged pop and an injection of hypnotic yet a heavy dose of club filling bassline, ‘Heads In the Clouds’ concludes on an urban tip, containing a mashup between a futuristic take on smooth/melodic hip-hop and R&B with a dash of tropical house.

He may be hailed a prodigy in the North European electro pop scene since his 2015 debut single, ‘Move’, but this EP sees the Estonian singer/songwriter/producer pushing the boundaries just a little further, encompassing new sounds with absolute perfection.
