Psychedelic Saturdays Vol 8

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.
