I’ve decided that winter just isn’t doing it for me anymore. Fortunately, a savior has arrived in the form of Shmallen. The self-proclaimed “professional poolside lounger piña colada sipper’s” remix of Aaliyah’s R&B classic is somehow even sexier and lush than the original. Normally, I’m a bit hesitant when young producers decide to mess around with […]

Earlier this summer, French electro-maven Joakim released “Heartbeats,” the newest single off his upcoming fifth album. Like much of what Joakim produces, “Heartbeats” is difficult to pin down stylistically. It’s something in between Kavinsky’s robotic slow burn and Air’s ambient electro. Either way, it’s wholly French. The gritty, slow-paced minimalism of the track is matched […]
