Okenyo - Broken Chest

I’ve been feeling like Little Dragon for quite some time now and after a few days of proper hesitation, I thought to myself “f&*% it, its an amazing tune… its a bit overwhelming to share new tunes only, it wouldn’t hurt if…”. Frankly said, I’ve no idea what are the Swedish guys up to lately, but if they are passing nearby - I would love to see Yukimi and co live!
Today, however we will have the delight to listen a slightly pimped version of the track. English electronic act 16bit empowered the tune with a super solid bass background which would make your ears or floor tremble… in case you proper sound system/headphones. I spent a whole summer listening to this on repeat and its a really nice jump back in time. Cheers!

"I’m Loosing" is a dark, ambient track - steady beats and regretful vocals. A soundtrack for short walk in sombre alleys during a cold night for one who is nicely tucked in his/her warm winter jacket.
It is produced by Igor Chibisov a.k.a. Lapwings from Russia. The information about this artist is scarce but luckily there are two other tracks you can listen to at his soundcloud page.

Listening to the original track and watching the video (Röyksopp - What else is there) I get chills running down my spine. Did you know that the voice did not mach the face? The floating woman is Marianne Schröder - a Norwegian model and the voice is of Karin Dreijer Andersson of The Knife ( Fever Ray - personal project).
Anyway, I find this track to be sound-wise unique especially because of Andersson’s voice. I was curious to discover a good remix of “What Else is There”. I did not think anyone would dare to cover this song. Well, I was wrong.
Andy Mort, an UK artist and writer has done a marvelous job covering this song. The transition from female vocals to male does not hurt the song. On the contrary, it adds richness to it and his voice coalesces beautifully with the acoustic guitar. I can’t believe a cover of such high quality has about 600 views. If you like it share it, for the love of music, for the sake of Andy Mort’s talent.

Post-rock is a very key music genre for our website, so I guess it won’t be surprising that the opportunity to meet, record and talk with God Is An Astronaut made a lot of people in the project very happy.
Check out the performance of their mind-blowing track “Route 666” during their gig in Berlin in September, 2013. The interview itself - coming very soon!
