It’s a new week and you all know what that means – a new bunch of our favourite tunes that we are listening to here at BassBuds HQ!

 

Eve is listening to The Weekend – Often (Kygo Remix)

Abel Tesfaye  known by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian R&B recording artist and record producer. This track has been mixed by Kygo (Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll) who is a Norwegian musician and remixer. This tune is super mellow and chilled – perfect for an evening walk!

Mat is listening to Celtic Cross – Shwazz

 

Celtic Cross was a musical collaboration of Simon Posford (Hallucinogen), Martin Glover (bassist from Killing Joke) and Saul Davies (Violinist from James). The style of music could be described as psychedelic rock ambient and dub music with ethnic influences.

 

Benjy is listening to Dirty Loops – Rolling In The Deep Cover (Adele)

Dirty Loops is a band from Stockholm, Sweden, consisting of Jonah Nilsson (vocals and piano), Henrik Linder (bass) and Aaron Mellergårdh (drums). They describe their style as “Classic Jazz-Jam” or “Jazz-Step”. This is such a good feel good song – ever feeling down wack this on loud – guaranteed to make you move your feet. Incredible cover of the famous song by Adele!

 

Corene is listening to Jhene Aiko – The Pressure

Jhené Aiko Efuru Chilombo better known as Jhené Aiko or simply Jhené, is an American singer/songwriter from Los Angeles, California. Aiko was formerly signed to The Ultimate Group and the incredibly famous Epic Records. This song has a lovely bass on the track – which still keeps it chilled but gives it a bit of a boost. The vocals are amazing and we definitely recommend you watch out for this girl!

 

Freja is loving Vance Joy – Riptide (FlicFlac Edit)

James Keogh , better known as Vance Joy, is an Aussie singer-songwriter born in Melbourne. He signed a five-album deal with Atlantic Records in 2013. Flic Flac who edited this song gives it a faster tempo making it really catchy and any remix that Flic Flac work on is bound to make you move your feet!

 

Well I’m afraid that’s it from us here at BassBuds HQ! Hope you all enjoy and stayed tuned for next week’s post – let us know your favourite tunes at the moment..just comment below!

What tantalizing tunes are you listening to today?

As you all probably know, here at BassBuds HQ we are mad about music. Every week we will be bringing you the latest on what we are all listening to. In the office we plan to bring you some new additions to your music playlist!

 

The lovely Corene is listening to Lil Kim – Flawless Feat Beyonce

Given the long-standing hostility between rappers Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj, perhaps it was only a matter of time before Kim hijacked Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj’s Flawless remix. In fact, it took less than 24 hours. Take a listen to this fiesty track and see what you think!

Our wonderful Eve is listening to Sky Ferreira – Everything Is Embarrassing (Krystal Klear Remix)

It was first premiered online on August 30, 2012, and was later released as a single on April 16, 2013 by Capitol Records in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The remix by Krystal Klear was released digitally on February 5 and March 25, 2013. This is such a chilled track and the Krystal Klear remix has just the right amount of bass to keep this smooth yet punchy.

The brilliant Benjy has been taking it old school and has been listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird

This old school track is bound to bring back some type of memory – whether it be in your Dad’s car to your Grandpa’s old vinyl collection. This track was released in 1973 and has been featured on some award winning films – Elizabethtown with Orlando Bloom, Forrest Gump with Tom Hanks and Devil’s Rejects to name a few.. Take a listen and let this masterpiece bring out your eclectic side.

The fantastic Mat is listening to Daft Punk – Around The World

Daft Punk are such an iconic duo – Daft Punk reached significant popularity in the late 1990’s house movement in France and met with continued success in the years following, combining elements of house with synthpop. They have collaborated with Pharrell in Get Lucky which was a massive massive success and it still continually played now. Daft Punk are also known for their use of disguises while in public and/or performing; specifically ornate helmets and gloves to assume robot personas in most of their public appearances since 2001. The duo rarely grants interviews or appears on television.

And last but not least Freja. She is massively vibing off ShadowChild & Doorly – Piano Weapon

She absolutely loves the label Eton Messy – It provides amazing tunes just like this one – She likes how it’s chilled however you can still move your feet to it. She loves piano house as well and feels like this song incorporates summer perfectly and she would definitely say this is her summer tune. Check them out!

 

Well I’m afraid that’s it from us here at Bass Buds HQ – until next week!
