15. Neutralize - Lost
Neutralize’s “Lost” can best be described as a serotonin-heightening symphony. Mellow samples of falling rain gracefully coalesce with an orchestral atmosphere, shutting out your “Everyday Struggle” and making life seem a lot more “Juicy.” How’s that famous lyric go; “It was all a dream?”
14. Draper - Flashback
“Flashback” is the perfect song to end an adventurous summer day. You took in some rays, drank a few IPA’s, then a few more, and maybe even got the number of a cute honey on the beach. Time to chill out with a little Draper, and then do it all again tomorrow.
13. Foner - Trying To Find A Balance
Besides the intro of “Trying To Find a Balance” which crudely screams “Shut the fuck up,” we can almost guarantee this bad boy will leave your jaw dropped wide open. Soulful hip-hop beats serves as a crucial backbone to just one of Foner’s nostalgic creations, neatly packaged From Russia with Love.
12. Dynasty Electric - Eyes Wide Open (Demure Remix)
While this mystical body of sound is actually called “Eyes Wide Open,” after one listen you’ll presumably have your eyes completely shut. Bewitching guitar plucks and jaw-dropping vocals effortlessly conceive an alleviating aura, drifting your thoughts towards mountain tops, delicious burgers, or whatever you dream about.
11. Blackbird Blackbird - It Was U
Blackbird Blackbird is well-known for exploring a wide spectrum of soundscapes, but it’s his downtempo creations we’re most interested in right now. “& It Was U” fills a blank canvas with vivid colors, brightening your current contemplations as the night grows dim. Rinse, press repeat, and then do that about a thousand more times.
