Song of the Day: Nightfall – DJ Ten

If stars had their own soundtrack, DJ TEN‘s track ‘Nightfall’ would be it. Leading with organic percussion meeting retrowave synths, the track boasts elements of R&B which quickly appear with the smooth female vocals.

Speaking of the track, DJ Ten shares, “Nightfall was inspired by many things for me. The key thing being to make a song with retrosynth inspiration, but to also give it a modern vaportrap twist and execution. I love to blend different sounds together that no one expects.”

DJ Ten – the man behind the tastemaker Youtube Channel, New Retro Wave, which has nearly one million subscribers – received over four million views across streaming platforms while a track from his ‘Retrological 2.0’ album was featured in the movie ‘The Demolisher’. DJ Ten has previously collaborated with synthwave producer, Trevor Something on two highly successful singles, ‘The Inner Voice’ and ‘Viral Lust’.

‘Nightfall’ is part of the Brooklyn-based retrowave producer’s self-produced EP ‘We Dream Aloud’ via TenStars. Check out the single below:

Two fries and a shake later, A1 bounces back with his third installment of his store run series – ‘Store Run 3′, released on New Year’s day.

Starting off with a sample from Alicia Keys’ hit ‘You Don’t Know My Name’ this mini set continues from the previous store run installments by encompassing a mixture of retro soul, 90s-inspired laid-back soulful R&B with a dash of slum village-esque boombap. The star of the show was the Brookyln’s native rapid-blazing flow ripping through the tranquil bars.
