TSIS regularly featured artist Manic Focus first came on our maps through a series of remixes of tracks like Bill Withers' "Use Me" and Disclosure's "Latch" among others. We even helped sponsor his albums "Cerebral Eclipse" and "Distant Perspective". Well today he goes back to his roots and drops us off a bootleg remix of soul singer Tracy Chapman’s classic, “Give Me One Reason.” Keeping the vocals intact, he builds a spacey, chilled out melodic, electro soul rework of the track with some bouncy percussion breakdowns filled with chime sounds. Listen to the premiere below. Enjoy!

[PREMIERE] Russ Liquid – This is Pretty Cool (feat. Beats Antique, Andrew Block and Eric Vogel) : Electro Soul [Free Download]Posted in Bangin, Chill by Jake | Tags: Beats Antique, Collaboration, Electro Soul, Free Download, Premiere, Russ Liquid
Residing on Gramatik’s Lowtemp label, Russ Liquid has been making waves as a jam influenced producer to keep an eye on as he’s improved his sound with every release. His 17 track Foreign Frequency album infuses elements of jazz and bass music in a new, refreshing sound he’s made his own. Today he’s teamed up with acclaimed live electronica and experimental world fusion trio Beats Antique, as well as fellow New Orleans based bassist Eric Vogel and guitarist Andrew Block. This psychedelic track infuses live instrumentation with electronic production as the slick guitar licks, funky basslines and keyboard work, jazzy hi hats, and the signature crooning trumpet is mixed in with quivering synths and electronica production as it all comes together on this pleasant track appropriately titled “This is Pretty Cool.” Enjoy!

2015 is turning out to be a winning year for seasoned electro-funk innovator GRiZ. After receiving high praises for his fourth studio album–Say It Loud—Griz commissioned a collection of emerging acts to add variations for the single For The Love ,featuring iconic rapper Talib Kweli, and rolled out a collaboration with Big Gigantic–Good Times Roll–to boot. Throw in a recent spotlight takeover of SnapChat's Discovery Channel and you have quite the list of accolades. With complacency nowhere near to GRiZ's ethos, he continues to push and challenge himself through new musical endeavors.
This brings us to his newest creation, "Feeling High"! This savory concoction of jazz and R&B is downright sensual from beginning to end. The smooth saxophone line that's made GRiZ such a memorable live act is at play throughout, and works perfectly with legendary musician Eric Bloom horn additions. Hip-hop heads will recognize the inspiration for this original from Reflection Eternal's "2000 Seasons" jam, but morphed into GRiZ's framework. Stream the release below and grab yourself a free download, because why the heck not. Enjoy!

[PREMIERE] Break Science – Misaligned (Ft. &CO) (Music Video) : Electro Soul Original [Free DownloadPosted in Chill, Premieres, Uncategorized by nick | Tags: &CO, Break Science, Electro Soul, Misaligned, Music Video, Premiere
When they aren't performing as essential members in the Pretty Lights Band, New York based duo Break Science, are turning out some incredible music of their own.
Today we have the premiere of their newest single, "Misaligned", a standalone song showcasing a more matured sound from the group. We hear a nice cinematic intro which quickly progresses to a signature keyboard fueled drop, yet with a new atmospheric twist. To accompany the new song the duo are premiering an equally impressive set of dark visuals for it's official music video. Watch the video below, and stay tuned as we'll have the free download later this month. Enjoy!
Here are some quotes from Adam Deitch of Break Science and the director of the video Paul Greenhouse on the video.
"Honored to have collaborated with a true visual artist such as Paul Greenhouse for our new "Misaligned" video. This will be our 3rd musical collaboration with Sonya Kitchell (&Co is her new project) and we feel it's the best yet.” – Adam Deitch
"The concept for the video was to use the singer, Sonya Kitchell's face as a frame and fill it with imagery that would illustrate the nuances and textures of the track. I didn’t understand the meaning of the lyrics until we filmed Sonya’s performance and learned it was a breakup song. My friend Eric who worked on this with me got Sonya into a discussion about the meaning of the lyrics, and by the last take (the one we use in the video), her performance was really intense and powerful. It’s bit obscured by all of the images laid over top, but I think you can still feel it in her eyes and some of her expressions." -Paul Greenhouse
