Twist Helix - “Pulse”

If you live in Miami, whether you grew up here or made this place your home a few years ago, you’ve certainly had a fair share of heartaches over rampant urban development. Sure, it must be (really) nice to live in a luxury condo — but after walking through a street with a dozen high-rises,...

Mookhi - “Foul Play ft. Billy Fox”

Mookhi’s ‘Foul Play’ is her debut release, but this is hardly noticeable given the meticulousness of its production. Created on a plane and even including sampled sounds from the flight, the layering is lush and sensuous, with a fleshy mixture of bass and ethereal elements, and rounded off with heartfelt vocals by Billy Fox. The...

Lucky Beaches - “B.O.D”

A few listens into “B.O.D” and the lyrics emerge from a haze, revealing a dark state of mind intelligently obscured by a dragging drum beat, a wailing guitar, and echoed vocals fit for an 80’s cop movie soundtrack — hence the opening siren? “B.O.D” stands for ‘better off dead,’ by the way, and repeated exposure...

Cog Nomen - "Fear Of Missing Out"

Miami’s own Cog Nomen did a double great job with this track and video for “Fear Of Missing Out”. Lots of effects on the vocals, a loopy melody and groovy drums, make for an upbeat, ambiental, trippy and overall good feeling track. This does not mean that the track is a happy go lucky number, especially...

At almost five minutes long, “Yesterday” reveals the emotional states of a love lost. The opening guitar melody and Reiter’s lovely voice introduce a song that is full of ambient layers, dubbed guitar riffs, and echoed vocals — a perfect recipe for expressing nostalgia and heartbreak. The chorus provides for epic peaks and falls, similar...

Yelle is a French electro-pop artist with three full studio albums under her belt, and responsible for tracks like “Je Veux Te Voir” and “A Cause Des Garcons” which provided for some great high-school anthems (at least for me!). Now Yelle is back, after her last album and string of remixes in 2014-2015, with a...

Night Drive - “Rise and Fall”

Energetic yet tranquil and emotive, Night Drive’s “Rise and Fall” guides us through the unsteady stages of nostalgia. Starting off with moving synths and drum beats, the track gradually intensifies — an experience similar to stepping harder and harder on the gas pedal while driving through a city highway, with lights blurring into one streak....
