October featured two great future bass mixes and lots of Catalan music, as I tried to fully immerse myself in the culture before and during my short trip there. My top track comes courtesy of Youtube channel 7clouds, which I discovered thanks to Youtube recommending me this Pink Vibes mix. Just my kind of music!
7clouds – Pink Vibes – Future Bass Mix 2017
Mishima – La forma d’un sentit
Mishima are by far my favourite Catalan band with a number of albums to sample. They have an upbeat indie rock sound and know how to build expectation and use hooks.
Manel – M’hi Vaig Llançar
Manel are a bit more on the progressive side of rock, but have some compelling songs, like this one (I have no idea what the lyrics mean)
Txarango – Agafant L’horitzó
This song was composed to celebrate and encourage voting in the October 1st independence referendum. Txarango are a big band and their songs often feature a wide variety of instruments and vocals from other Catalan artists. I love the way ‘mountain’ is pronounced in Catalan. For that alone they deserve to own their muntanya!
TrexytII – Mix #131 2017 | Best of Future House October
This mix is the second best introduction to October’s edm music. Trexytii performing as usual!
Sam Smith – Too Good At Goodbyes (Galantis Remix)
In my humble opinion, Galantis are one of those artists who remix better than they produce original songs, which tend to repeat too much and quickly tire me. I could listen to this on repeat for hours.
Tiësto ft. Stargate & Aloe Blacc – Carry You Home
Sound Remedy & Illenium – Spirals (feat. King Deco)
A slow starter but rewards your patience.
Virtual Riot Feat. PRXZM – In My Head (Katdrop Remix)
Hailee Steinfeld & Alesso – Let Me Go (ft. Florida Georgia Line & watt)
CMC$ & Conor Maynard – Understand Me (Bougenvilla Remix)
Redondo – Instant Moments
