Magnetic Magazine's FreshLIST has been sourced from the digital ether and curated into a weekly video series for your listening pleasure. With the FreshLIST, you’ll find the five latest highlights uploaded to our YouTube channel: the selection is diverse, the quality is high, and the music is certified fresh.
Paleman - Bezzle Dub (Skream Edit)
Skream is a modern british god who can hang with the best of them in this thing called electronic dance music. He got his start, as many know, in the prominent dubstep group Magnetic Man, but now disbanded and moving in their respective directions, Skream is absolutely thriving making the music he loves. No longer bound by genre, he’s going to make music that he sees fit to perfect his damn fine sets. This edit of his right here is bold and goes deep, instilling a visceral radiation that you will have no way of escaping. Here is a song that is going to get you going.
Kirin Rider - Spicious
Fans of bass music, you’re in for a very fresh treat. The Bay Area bass master Kirin Rider’s latest release on Laser Native is a song with personality. Funky and fun with a touch of crazy, it is the type of song that is so much it can’t even handle itself. Now, I am not saying it isn’t holding it together and an extremely wonderfully produced song, but it’s got so much life and experimentation that it’s more a creature in of itself, rather than just music. Try to predict this song, it’s going to prove you wrong, so don’t try and fight it, just embrace it. Kirin Rider knows how to move your body, so you would be well advised to start moving to ‘Spicious’.
Pierce Fulton - Kuaga (Vijay & Sofia Zlatko Remix)
Hope is a fire that burns bright, and it guides you through a lot of pain and darkness with its light. When times are dark, and things just aren’t going your way, you sometimes hear a song, and it brings your gaze to the metaphorical horizon where hope’s fire shines, guiding you to better times. This scenario, that’s that exact scene this remix captures and conveys! The storm has ended and blue skies and a glowing sun greets you, and then you realize, you’re alive and ready to thrive. Vijay & Sofia Zlatko have really achieved something special with a remix that wonderfully conveys a transition from dark to light, a move towards something better, and that’s the best kind of trajectory to be on.
Pleasure State - Electricity (Vamos Art Remix)
Not going to call them a super group, I’ll call them absolute super darlings, this group called Pleasure State that consists of MK, Lee Foss and Anabel Englund. They crushed it recently with their next releases after a long hiatus, and now one of their initial tunes of notoriety has been remixed by Vamos Art. It is a chilled out edit that maintains Anabel’s angelic voice upon a forward moving deep house foundation. Grooving into the future, this is a great song to keep things moving and going forward, regardless the context of a late night or poolside groove session.
Ganz - Cherry (This One is For You)
It’s a genre defying piece that brings the best of so many things together, and the only easy way to categorize this, beyond a damn good song, is refined bass music. Using bass in the most appropriate ways and at the perfect times, we have here a strong song that knows what is doing and exactly how to do it. Ganz has got game, so you should do well to remember this song and that name. I love the innovation, you can sense this is an artist moving in a new direction, and it’s certainly one I’d like to hear more of.
Pretty Lights feat. The Shady Horns - I Can See It In Your Face (Manic Science Remix)
Pleased to present to you today a tune that is chock full of funky jam band vibes and a get down directive. Some songs have an energy that is going to get a party going full bore, with every dancer writhing and getting after it that it starts to feel the sound can’t be contained and the roof is coming right off. Manic Science has just the ticket to take this song to the moon, and feels to enhance and embolden the instrumental components in the best way possible. It’s got a great life that makes it almost feel like a live recording rather than a remix.
Timmo Hendriks - Astrob
A song with teeth, a song with an agenda to crush and destroy, that’s our selection here for you today from Timmo Hendriks. Ambitious and aiming to crush arenas and festivals, Timmo Hendriks has a big room tune that doesn’t conform to the rest. The cinematic strength of this song raises it to another level, not just standard formulaic attempts at mainstream big room house and electro compositions
