Launchpad: Road trip tunes
The Launchpad is a biweekly series showcasing hot new music hand selected by our staff. The tracks in these curated playlists come from both underground and mainstream artists that we love. If you’d like to see your music featured in the Launchpad, you can submit it for consideration here.
This week’s first installment of Launchpad brings together a mix of tracks that are perfect for long car rides through balmy springtime weather. The playlist will feature tracks that are upbeat, full of warm atmosphere, and even a few remixes of some of the biggest tracks out right now.
Released via Armada Deep early this month, “Let’s Make Beautiful (feat. Victor Perry) [Tep No Remix]” is a warm and beautiful track written and sung by Victor Perry. Comprised of vibrant guitar riffs, soul-grabbing vocals, and very gentle atmosphere, this remix is enough to elevate any listener’s mood to the next level.
By now, practically everyone is familiar with Julia Michaels’ popular hit, “Issues.” Rising producer, Cezar Nedelcu, recently made waves with his stellar remix earning himself a spot on Tiësto’s “Clublife 518.” Nedelcu keeps things simple and tasteful incorporating the original vocal, hand drums, and shakers.
Cloudchord’s “Light U” is a powerful French disco original perfectly fusing together bright synths, broken beat, live guitar, and a very playful vocal sample. This track is perfect for injecting some more energy into one’s day.
