Playlist: Sean Turk

Sean Turk

Production seems to be Sean Turk‘s forte, having already released material on Warner, Spinnin’ Records, and Ultra Records and gained support from some key players.

We wanted to get inside the musical mind of the New York-based #BedroomBass enthusiast to find out where he finds the inspiration for his music.

The result is the below playlist, or in Sean’s own words…

Hey what’s going on y’all! Here is a playlist that kind of encompasses the vibes I’m feeling at the moment. A lot of similar stuff that I am usually influenced by. These songs are my go to for traveling/driving around from day to day. Hope you guys enjoy!

Playlist: Gryffin

Gryffin

Gryffin

Los Angeles-based producer/multi instrumentalist, Gryffin, has been going from strength to strength over the last couple of years.

We thought it was about time he put together a playlist for you lot.

Snakehips & MØ – Don’t Leave (Gryffin Remix)
I really love MØ’s raw emotion, and I wanted to be able to amplify in my own way with this remix but with a little bit of a twist from my normal style.

Louis The Child – Love Is Alive (feat. Elohim)
The Louis the Child guys have been on fire recently. “Love Is Alive” has their signature sound but in a indier direction.

RUFUS DU SOL – Innerbloom (What So Not Remix)
This remix is always awesome to play out in my DJ sets.

Illenium – Fractures (feat. Nevve)
Illenium is a great friend of mine and his new track “Fractures” shows exactly why he is one of the best future bass producers out there.

The xx – On Hold
The xx have been a favorite band of mine for a while. Really love this track off their new album.

Twenty One Pilots – Heavydirtysoul
TOP have the perfect blend of rock, electronic, and pop elements in their music. “Heavydirtysoul” is one of my favorite’s from their latest album.

Whethan – Savage feat. Flux Pavilion & MAX
Whethan is one of the most talented young producers out there and I was really excited when he released “Savage.”

San Holo – Light
“Light” is an unlikely crossover track but its been really cool to see it catch onto the commercial crowd.

Gryffin – Whole Heart (Young Bombs Remix)
Young Bombs absolutely crushed this remix of “Whole Heart.” Their Snapchat is hilarious too.

Mura Masa & A$AP Rocky – Love$ick
Mura Masa is hands-down one of the best producers out their. His collaboration with A$AP Rocky is the perfect blend of urban and dance.

Gabrielle Aplin – Miss You

Gabrielle Aplin - Miss You

Gabrielle Aplin – Miss You

Wow, Gabrielle Aplin is back with a complete change in direction, but we like it.

Her instantly recognisable vocals work perfectly with the soft tropical undertones of her new radio-ready and bittersweet love song, ‘Miss You’.

Co-written by Aplin ‘Miss You’ was produced by Mike Spencer (Snakehips, Rudimental  Emeli Sande, Ellie Goulding, Jack Garratt), who also produced Aplin’s debut album ‘English Rain’.

Not satisfied with writing new material, Aplin has also started up her very own independent record label Never Fade Records which was founded “in order to give young talent and unsigned artists their first stepping stone in the music industry.”

Aplin’s forthcoming ‘Miss You EP’ will features three original tracks along with a beautiful piano version of ‘Miss You’ in Aplin’s signature style.

Playlist: Anni

Anni

Anni

New Finn on the block, Anni, writes empathetic, piano-laden music.

Her EP, ‘Redemption Street’ is out now and to celebrate, Anni has put together a playlist for us.

Alicia Keys: In Common

Alicia Keys has always been one of my big role models. She’s a goddess. Once again she shows us her musical genius and eloquence with her new single.

D’Angelo: Another Life

What is there not to love in this song? I play the piano part at home on top of the track and imagine I’m jamming with his band.

Laura Mvula: She

It had been a long time without hearing any new songs that really touched me. Those periods are terrible. You don’t want to overuse the songs you love yet you can’t find anything that feels honest and fresh. Then I heard this and listened it on repeat for days. Learned to play it to understand what’s the magic behind it. This song brought me to life again.

Banks: Warm Water (Snakehips remix)

Just love this.

Låpsley: Falling Short

She’s super cool. If you haven’t heard of her, you should.

James Vincent McMorrow: Higher Love

James Vincent McMorrow’s cover of Steve Windwood 80’s hit breaks my heart every time I hear it. Also, just check out the lyrics. The original song bears such a beautiful message.

Tony Allen: Calling

After hearing Alicia’s new single I had to go back to some classic afrobeat songs. This still brings shivers. (P.s. If you’ve ever listened to early Jamiroquai, you might realise where they got their influences.)

Sérgio Mendes feat. Fergie: Look Of Love

Even more that afrobeat, I love Brazilian music. It’s the combination of dancable rhythms and big, beautiful melodies that simply gets me. The legendary Sérgio Mendes collaborated with Black Eyed Peas and this classic jazz standard is one of the songs I especially love.

Caribou: Can’t Do Without You

I quite rarely like this kind of music. Except Caribou!

Stevie Wonder: Overjoyed

Stevie is greatest inspiration of my music that will ever be. His voice is just otherworldy. And his songs.
