Lots of songs never make it to the radio that are getting lots of attention online. Live tracks, sanctioned and unsanctioned remixes, mash-ups, overlooked gems by unsigned artists. Every week on “Are You Feeling This,” we invite you to hear what the buzz is all about. You tell us what you think. Vote in the 'Are You Feeling This' poll, and leave a comment.
We kicked off 'Are You Feeling This' with the 21 year old producer/singer from Cape Town, South Africa by the name of Petite Noir and his song "Till We Ghosts." His real name is Yannick Iluga and he is originally from Congo. He has been creating a buzz with his song "Till We Ghosts," which you can listen to below and vote for if you dig it. You can check out the song's video here.
Next up is the song "Headlights" from Minneapolis band Night Moves, who recently signed to Domino Records. The band creates a unique balance between electronic and alt-country vibes. Their debut album Colored Emotions will be released in October via Domino Records.
The following band, On an On, consists of members from Minneapolis and Chicago. Personally, I feel this band should be watched closely in the near future. They spent some time recording their forthcoming album with Broken Social Scene producer Dave Newfeld. We featured their song "Ghosts," which you can download via their site in exchange of an email.
Finally, we have a remix of the popular tune "Too Close" from Alex Clare. The remix was produced by Nacey out of DC. Nacey replaces the dubstep with a more chill and soulful vibe. You can download the song via his soundcloud page.
