It’s a new year! A time for reflection on what happened in the previous 52.1775 weeks. 2014 was an amazing year for us. We got to play and remix some of our favorite artists, added our talented buddy Seth to the Go Periscope collective, and released some songs that we were really proud of. Thank you all for your continued love and support. Something tells me that 2015 is going to be even better.
In what has now become a time-honored tradition, we like to recap our 10 favorite songs of the year. One of them we remixed (Ellie by Eastside) and one actually came out at the very end of 2013, but we feel should still get the number one spot on the list, because seriously has anything blown up faster than Kygo? So here it is, our top ten songs of 2014…
9. CAZZETTE - Sleepless ft. The High (Oliver Nelson Remix)
8. Eastside - Ellie (Don’t x Loyal)
7. The Griswolds - Beward The Dog
6. Viceroy - The Life ft. Penguin Prison (StéLouse Remix)
5. Manatee Commune - White Smoke ft. Marina Price
4. Echosmith - Cool Kids (RAC Remix)
3. Slow Magic - Hold Still
2. Big Data - Dangerous (Oliver Remix)
1. Ed Sheeran - I See Fire (Kygo Remix)
*We did a special mashup featuring this song to celebrate the new year.
Fall has always been one of our favorite times to write new music. It must be something about the seasons changing and how all of the trees and hillsides start to look like an oil-painting out here in the Pacific Northwest. This fall has started out really well for us. Between writing new originals we stumbled across this song, Ellie, by the brand new artist Eastside. (An extraordinary new band, I expect big things from them.)
Immediately after hearing the song I texted Seth and Florin and we agreed we had to remix it. Seth laid out an awesomely-tropical base for the song, and we spent a day in the studio recording extra bits of guitar and percussion. We are all really proud of how it turned out. Give it a listen and if you like it, please spread it around!
TENMOER transports the tropical vibes of Wait for You into the Breakfast Club era, with 80s-esque synth lines and a nostalgia-inducing bass groove.
