Daughter - Youth (Alle Farben Remix) (by majesticcasual)
Recently I have been listening to a lot of tracks from the Majestic and Eton Messy youtube channels and I’m sure I’ll be posting more in the future. Here is my favourite at the moment.
Daughter are an indie folk band from London and the original song, Youth, was released on their 2011 EP entitled The Wild Youth.
However, in my opinion, what makes the track is the work of Alle Farben, a Berlin-based producer named Frans Zimmer, on it. It’s another unusually long one for me at over seven and a half minutes, but in a way this is one of the reasons it’s so good. The track slowly builds up to a crescendo and just as you think it’s ended, it restarts. One of the most replayable songs I’ve heard in a while
It’s A Fine Line are a pair of producers named Ivan Smagghe and Tim Paris who are from London. This track, Edit Service 8, has been released on the I’m A Cliché label. The track is a lot longer than most of the ones I post normally (over 8 minutes) but it doesn’t feel in any way stretched. This is another artist who I’ve had difficulty finding out about but hopefully that will change as they make more music like this and make a name for themselves

London Grammar are a trio from London, Hannah & Daniel (who met at Nottingham University) and Dot (added later). From what I can find they have only released one song. I heard it on Phil Taggart and Alice Levine’s R1 show last night and haven’t stopped listening since. Definitely hoping for more of the same from them

Prepare to board the HMS Bestival. First line-up announcement at 19:00 hrs on Wednesday 30th Jan. Bestival 2013.
I’ve been starting to listen to a bit of Garage recently and so far this has been one of the stand-out tracks. The track was released in 1998 and is made by garage production duo Double 99 (real names Tim Deluxe and Omar Adimora). It is believed to be the first ever true speed garage record and one of the best tracks I’ve heard for a while.

And now for some classic 80s house! Nightcrawlers are a “house music project” from Glasgow, Scotland assembled by John Reid. “Push The Feeling On” is easily they’re best and most famous song. I found it from its appearance on Stay +’s mix for Rob da Bank BBCR1’s show. The mix is definitely worth having a look at and its available for free download on Stay +’s SoundCloud page

Cyril Hahn is a producer from Vancouver, Canada. At the moment his best tracks are remixes, including those from Solange, Mariah Carey and this one Destiny’s Child. He usually takes the track and makes it unrecognisable from the original. I am hoping for more of the same from Mr Hahn.

Stay+ are an electronic duo from Manchester. They were originally known as Christian AIDS but were forced to change names after Christian Aid (the charity) complained. Crashed is released on Black Butter Records and is one of my favourite songs at the moment.

Trust are a synthpop due made up of Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski from Toronto, Canada (I sense a theme emerging). They make similar sounds to Crystal Castles. In my opinion Sulk is their best track, but also Candy Walls and Bulbform are decent.
