This Minimal House stunner is a remix of Mari Kvien Brunvoll’s ‘Everywhere You Go’ by Ricardo Villalobos . Mari is a Norwegian Jazz singer who comes from a very musical family. Her performances are inspired by the sound of pop and folk, and while on stage she uses a variety of acoustic as well as electronic instruments. So it’s only fitting that Ricardo put her wonderful voice to some very enchanting electronic beats.
It’s a bit disappointing though that there are only very limited resources with infos about Mari. At least I learned, that there still are people that use MySpace. Astonishing. But when it comes the music itself – it is “nothing less than magic”.
Genre: Experimental / Techno

DJ and producer Rosa Lux (Rosali Batzer) is one of Denmark’s more famous representatives in the electro scene, having even made a name for herself in broader Danish society due to a few appearances on danish TV programs in the last years after her first successful single. Her debut album ‘Monsters’ already came out in 2011 and she continued to be a regular among Copenhagen and Europe’s night clubs.
‘Wilderness’ is a collaboration with artists from Germany, namely Audiolith producer Rampue and electropop duo ‘I’m Not A Band‘. Together they produced a wonderfully relaxing Tech-House track that simply clings to your eardrums. It’s a testament of how well-deserved Rosa’s fame in the Copenhagen club scene really is, even when she’s only providing vocals here. For a proof of her beat-making qualities, listen to the gold-awarded ‘Min Klub Først’ feat. Alberte & Josefine Winding.
Genre: Tech-House / Deep House

Sometimes I love remixes just for the sake of making me rediscover a long forgotten gem. At other times they bring songs onto a whole new level. And there are also those few tracks where both coincide in one tune.
The MK remix of Emma Louise’s cooperation with german producer Wankelmut is one of those exceptions. It’s a much more progressive, sweeping house beat set to Emma’s vocals and the melodic sequences of the original. And although this seems to be quite a controversial remix, judging by the comments on Soundcloud, I like it way better than MK’s original take on the song. Even though I must admit that I share the reservations about the general quality of production and some parts of the song, this has too much style to dismiss it that easily.
Emma herself is a talented singer-songwriter from Australia, who had her first greater commercial success with the feature of Wankelmut. The original version (‘Jungle’) of this tune already is a wonderful song and in 2013 she released her first full album ‘Vs Head Vs Heart’ that was positively received by the critics. I’d love for her to work together with more electronic producers in the future. It would really suit her.

Today’s Electric Women took a path that becomes a more and more common phenomenon in the modern music industry, but which (thankfully) is still a rarity in electronic music. 20-year old Melanie Martinez’ first dip into fame and appearance in popular media was her participation in the third season of American TV-Show ‘The Voice’. She was eliminated after reaching the Top 6, but still managed to build upon her newly found popularity.
Treasure Fingers just released a remix of the lead single ‘Dollhouse’ from her debut EP with the same name. In his hands it has become a fine house / garage song that perfectly compliments Melanie’s vocals.
One of my favorites releases from last year has taken one of her most memorable performances on The Voice, the cover of Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’ as a base. The rework by Cestladore, which he simply calls ‘Melanie’, puts a whole different spin on that song again. It’s one of the best trap tunes I’ve heard yet. So good that it really might be post-trap already, like Cestladore himself tagged it on Soundcloud.
It seems like Melanie Martinez is becoming a producers’ favorite to remix and it’s definitely worth the effort, if one takes these two tunes as any kind of benchmark for it.
Genre: Garage / Trap

Olivier is a young 16-year-old producer from the Netherlands. For his first single ‘Fever’, he teamed up with the wonderful Robyn Florence. It was released in the end of August and all profits that are eventually generated will be donated to the Dutch ALS foundation.
Lyrically, it is a song about sexual self determination and unwanted advances in public spaces. In particular about the tragically common phenomenon of people not being able to read other’s emotions (or not minding them) and subsequently making unrequited and unwanted approaches.
While Olivier wrote and produced the track, Robyn, who first met Olivier in school, had a great influence on the creative direction and co-wrote the lyrics in addition to providing the vocals. As yet she was primarily covering songs and putting them up on YouTube or Soundcloud. So this is a new step for both of them. And a great one at that, as the surprisingly mature sounding ‘Fever’ is an early testament of their promising talent.
Unfortunately, the full song is not out there on SoundCloud, so here’s a link to a 60 second preview on SC, for those that don’t use Spotify.

This extract from one of Hannah Wants sets that has been released in may brings together two great women of the contemporary electronic music scene. At first Hannah Wants herself. She is one of UK’s leading deep / bass house DJs hailing from Birmingham and has been around for a few years already. It is her who remixed this already modern classic from Disclosure’s album ‘Settle’, together with her congenial partner in production Chris Lorenzo.
The genre-bending singer-songwriter Jessie Ware is the second women involved in ‘Confess to me’. She is the original collaborator of Disclosure on this fabulous tune and provides the powerful vocals. Jessie was born and raised in London and is already on the verge of releasing her second full album in October of this year.
This ingenious combination of four incredibly talented artists into one powerful club-tune is definitely a keeper, that shouldn’t be missed on anyone’s house-playlist.
Genre: Deep House
