Usher – Good Kisser (BAESIC Remix)

Stay with this one. With a little bit of a slow start you might be put off but wait until those pre-chorus lush chords drop in. Mellow. We don’t know a huge amount about LA based Baesic, other than it’s the name 18/19 year old Maddie likes to put tunes out on. But with a … Continue reading

TOURIST – Holding On (feat. Josef Salvat & Niia)

Tourist continues his melodic-house style production of late with the melancholic ‘Holding On’.
