[ELECTRONIC/R&B] Usher – “Good Kisser” (Disclosure Remix)

photo recap - disclosure wild life tour

There’s nothing worse than being in the middle of a hot and heavy petting session late at night, things moving toward the bedroom, when your “sexy jams” playlist throws a curve ball at you, shattering the moment with an acoustic version of “Wonderwall”. It was the last time I left Pandora to make the big […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] SAILOR & I – Turn Around (Âme Remix)

avatars-000082577775-i4pwyx-t500x500

It seemed a natural selection for me to feature this track in my first piece as part of The Sight & Sounds family; my love for writing and my fascination for this artist is what got me here in the first place. I’m not a biased music fan. I’m not the kind of groupie to […]

[CHILL/ELECTRONIC] London Grammar – “Hey Now” (Arty Remix)

[CHILL/ELECTRONIC] London Grammar - "Hey Now" (Arty Remix)

If you’re a night owl such as myself, you’ll find you spend a lot of time alone at your computer during the twilight hours. I find it quite peaceful, the lack of any outside distractions allowing me to focus and concentrate on the task at hand. As the hours progress, I tend to find myself […]

[CHILL/ELECTRONIC] Coldplay – “Midnight” (Kygo Remix)

[CHILL/ELECTRONIC] Coldplay - "Midnight" (Kygo Remix)

Some artists take years developing a sound they can call their own, often spending endless hours and countless all nighters in front of their work space pouring over every detail of their craft. Live bands, too, have a seemingly endless tour schedule, opening in front of meager crowds in a continual effort to spread their […]

[ELECTRO/DANCE] Borgeous – “Invincible” (Freak Island Remix) [Free Download]

[ELECTRO/DANCE] Borgeous - "Invincible" (Freak Island Remix)

There are some hot things happening in Chicago at the moment, and I’m not just talking about the temperatures finally breaking 70 degrees for the first time this year. Yes, Chicago has officially joined summer, having made the un-Democratic decision to just forego spring altogether. It makes me feel like dancing all the way to […]

[Drum & Bass] Liquicity – Escapism Vol. 1

Escapism

Once in awhile I come across a production so perfectly crafted that I’m forced to let it speak for itself. Case in point, Liquicity’s Escapism Vol. 1. Officially released all the way back on February 17th, the entire album is finally available to stream via SoundCloud. If liquid drum and bass is your forte, then […]

[Drumstep/Drum & Bass] Koda – Staying (DotEXE Remix)

DotEXE

Here’s something a little out of the ordinary! Chill drumstep. Yes, you heard me correctly, it’s a real thing. When you hear the term “drumstep,” I can’t blame you for immediately thinking of big name producers like Figure, Terravita, & Dirtyphonics. However, this vibrant DotEXE reconstruction approaches the genre from an entirely different angle. Better yet, […]

[ELECTRONIC] Bill Withers – “Ain’t No Sunshine” (Lido Remix)

[ELECTRONIC] Bill Withers - "Ain't No Sunshine" (Lido Remix)

It’s dreary and depressing in Chicago. Spring is fighting for it’s life here, but it’s round 3 and winter is a tough motherfucker. Wait a second, let me check my calender… yup, it’s almost May, yet the cold, wet weather outside my window weaves a different tale of depression and apathy. I imagine it’s the […]

[ELECTRONIC/BASS] Lorde – “Tennis Court” (Flume Remix)

[ELECTRONIC/BASS] Lorde - "Tennis Court" (Flume Remix)

To say Flume‘s Coachella set was “eventful” may be the understatement of the summer. To quote Huffington Post, “sickest unreleased drop: Flume’s remix of Lorde‘s ‘Tennis Courts.’” I had similar feelings the first time I heard the track – my mind reeling in abject disbelief at the sounds coming through my speakers. Following a Twitter […]

[Drumstep] Astronaut – Rain (FWS Remix)

FWS

Ever since I began writing here at The Sights and Sounds, I’ve made it a point to give local EDM acts the exposure they deserve. Whether it be new Louis The Child, Manic Focus, or Stratus, we always seem to be right on the cutting-edge of the Chicago bass music scene. In keeping with that […]
