What's up, guys? Sorry I missed you last week, that silly thing we call life got in the way! More specifically, preparations for Hard DOTD
. All of that aside, welcome back to Psychedelic Saturdays
! Peruse this week's picks below:
Critical Choice & Liquid Soul - Redemption
"Redemption" was really the perfect track to start off this week's playlist! I am absolutely in love with it, as I always am when Liquid Soul plays a role in a song. The slower tempo and the smooth bass-line created a relaxing, yet intense atmosphere while listening. Critical Choice
and Liquid Soul
definitely found a way to make each other shine through in this track. I'll be keeping my eye out for more collaborations in the future!
Neelix - Little Stevie (Ghost Rider Rmx)
Ghost Rider is back with another fantastic remix! This time he gave Neelix's
hit "Little Stevie" some of the funky, electric Ghost Rider treatment. I really enjoyed how he tied the vocal sample in with the rest of the track too. I dare you to try and try and listen to it once without pressing the "repeat" button.
Neelix - Call Me (Morten Granau Remix)
"One of the reasons that I enjoy singing songs without words is because it allows the individual here to bring their own story to the sounds." Have I mentioned that vocal samples from psy-trance
are the shit? Also, I'm really digging the Neelix remixes out this week on Iboga. These guys really give Neelix a run for his money!
Son Kite - Transition
This song is peculiar, but in a good way! The retro-sounding synths and the high-frequency melody made me feel almost as if I was inside the Silph Co building in Saffron city (1st generation Pokémon for all those not in the know). Meanwhile, the 16th note bass-line and the off-beat charms add a fun vibe to the song overall.
Critical Choice - Nylon
Ok, so clearly I'm on a more chill kick this week. "Nylon" truly is a "Critical Choice" of a track to listen to - see what I did there? Gosh I'm so punny! The song is almost a fusion of psy-trance and deep house
; I never would have thought of this combination, but it really works! I'll call it "psy-deep-trouse," except this time where the word "trouse" comes into play it will have a much less negative connotation.
