Jonas Rathsman: 'Yes I Am'
In line with the previous warm-weather-inspired tracks of this week's column, tropical house producer Jonas Rathsman's new single 'Yes I Am' just made it to my summer playlist. With tracks like 'Tobago' and 'Since I Don't Have You,' the Swedish producer made it to fame as part of the French Express label run by fellow tropical house producer Perseus. 'Yes I Am' is beautiful in its simplicity, with even the faint sound of seagulls used in the background to evoke a mood that Rathsman had distinctly made a part of his namesake.
Patterns: 'Sunny Days (Fred Falke Remix)'
After having listened to Fred Falke's remixes and original productions for the past 9 years, I have yet to find one production of his that I haven't liked. He has remixed scores of artists popular with with the gay community like Lana del Rey, Robyn, Katy Perry, Kelis, Robbie Williams and Jamiroquai, so I think it's fair to say Falke shares a musical sensibility not far off from ours. His upbeat, groovy, disco-inspired production never fails to take a song to that next level. Dance-pop newcomers Patterns' first single 'Sunny Days' is no exception to that, with Falke's signature synths and pounding basslines giving the song the added boost to help these newbies make a splash in the music world.
