Delilah - Love You So

Hi, folks!

I´m off to Amsterdam tomorrow for New Year´s and will take some time off.
2011 has been crazy, full of excitement and I know that 2012 will be amazing, so I take this chance to wish you all a fabulous New Year´s and take care!

The song is dedicated to Nele, who said that something can come from this track! Thank you, Nele! :)

Tehnoloogiline Päike - Kõige Pikem Päev

I visited a concert this week - Tehnoloogiline Päike (transl Technological Sun) performed together with a  symphony orchestra and a choir in one of Tallinn´s retro cinema called Kosmos. It was amazing! I think it was my best concert experience so far! They combined atmospheric music with  powerful symphony orchestra and put a cherry on top with the choir. The result was unbelievable. The nearest concert experience was this summer´s Royksöpp live in Positivus, but still I think Tehnoloogiline Päike was better!

Enjoy their hit single from the second album, but I have to say - actually the whole album is great and worth listening to!



 

One example from the concert as well









Apparat - Komponent (Telefon Tel Aviv Remix)

I hope you all had a chance to take time off and enjoy the holidays!
Something really chill for you!

The Weeknd - Dirty Diana

The Weeknd made a cover to disco king Michael Jackson´s song Dirty Diana.
Actually I´m quite surprised how the tunes of Weeknd and Jackson converge. But listen and decide yourself :)

21 December, 2011

Will Young - Come on

Hi folks,

Christmas is coming. Are you missing the white christmas as well? I don´t know how can one have a christmas feeling without the snow. Even the christmas lights are quite rare in Tallinn this winter. Feels more like a long fall.  But, if you´re missing snow too, type "let it snow" to google search. Maybe it´ll help, or at least make you smile for a second :)

But the song, Will Young is all over the radio stations at the moment, but it´s the first one from him I do like. Usually I don´t post pop music, because first of all I´m not a big fan and secondly you most probably have heard them from the radio already.
But why this? It may sound a bit cheesy, but I think the song has something magical in it :)



19 December, 2011

Finley Quaye - Dice

I had a wonderful birthday! Closing the day with champagne and some good music.
Thank you, guys!





16 December, 2011

Crystal Fighters - Champion Sound

Thank you, Laura! So many different music styles united together and how well they have managed to do that!
Definitely a Friday material!





12 December, 2011

Mantra Gora - Ah Kui Hea

Estonian song (transl "Oh So Good") which has been on repeat since Friday when we listened to the song with my most special buddy all night long. It really works like a real mantra!




11 December, 2011

Desire - Under Your Spell

It has been a long weekend and time to take time off on Sunday.
This song has entertained me all morning.



10 December, 2011

02 December, 2011

Gus Gus - Within You

It was a hell of a week. Tonight it´s Brookes Brothers playing in Tallinn (actually almost in the neighbour building to my apartment) and time to relax a bit.  Tomorrow we will have a christmas theme  party and I will go as Sandy from Grease. So the weekend will be full of entertainment and I don´t complain :)

Song recommendation for you for the weekend


Enjoy the weekend! (my recommendation - relax and enjoy good music with good company!)






29 November, 2011

Jamie Woon tonight!

Tonight everything is about Jamie Woon, because in 3 hours he will be on stage in Tallinn!
And I´ll do my best to fight my fever and to get the most of it! I know a lot of my friends are coming, but if you´re not able to, enjoy my favourite songs here :)

The most special one, "Shoulda"


My second favourite "Street"



"Lady Luck" with an amazing choreography video


"Night Air", of course



And two amazing remixes, which unfortunately I think won´t be played tonight.
They actually are the only remixes I like from or with Jamie, all the others just seem to ruin the original songs.


24 November, 2011

NNEKA - My Home

Remember NNEKA´s dnb song "Heartbeat" (collaboration with Chase&Status) which went around in  my head for a year, I think?

Well, this is her first single from her new album. A bit different, but still good.






22 November, 2011

Mr Woodnote & Lil Rhys 'Diamonds In The Dirt' feat. Eva Lazarus

It´s getting really hip-hoppy here, don´t ask, I don´t know why. They just keep coming to my way. Hope you enjoy them too.
I have a big event tonight to organise, so if you´re reading this, I hope you keep your fingers crossed for me so that everything will go fabulously. I´m really holding my breath at the moment.
Until next time!



Bernhoft - C'mon Talk

This is one of the coolest songs I have heard in a long time!








19 November, 2011

Ed Sheeran - Lego House feat. P Money (Gosling Remix)

Kristjan introduced this song to me. Again a great finding from him.
And Ed Sheeran is amazingly talented I have to say.

Skin - Kill Everything (Subclash Remix)

Ohh, this is sooo good! It has been a long time since I last time really fell in love with this kind of a dnb track.
The singer Skin is a former lead-singer of Skunk Anansie and oh, I was a biiiiiig fan back in the days.



As a huge fan of Skunk Anansie I have to add my favourite song for them as well.
One of my all time favourites "Hedonism"



17 October, 2011

Marlon Roudette - New Age

Mattafix was great. I was really sad when I heard that they split, but the good thing is Marlon just released his first solo album and you can recognize the magnificent tune of Mattafix.

The song that has conquered all Estonia´s radio stations.


11 October, 2011

Delilah - Go

Thank you, Kristjan, for sharing this track!
Psst! Kristjan is my first (and best melomaniac) friend who decided to make his own music blog couple of weeks ago. He is like a walking music library with a great taste of music. Really, you couldn´t even imagine. So, definitely go and check out his blog.


24 September, 2011

Chris Medina - What Are Words

The sweetest song I´ve heard in a long time dedicated to my sweetest Saturday night.


15 September, 2011

Maverick Sabre - I Need

I´m not the biggest fan of autumn. Everything seems so grey and dull outside and I can´t remember when was the last day when it didn´t rain. All I wanna do these days is just stay home and have a cup of warm tea. If you´re doing the same thing, then listen to the next track. It fits perfectly.


13 September, 2011

06 September, 2011

Snow Patrol - The Planets Bend Between Us

A lot of work to do and this calming piece keeps me focused.
I really love my job and I enjoy the moments when I can just work by myself and listen to a good new music.


02 September, 2011

Wretch 32 ft. Josh Kumra - Don't Go (MJ Cole Remix)

This is so good. Over and over again.

PS! The new version of blogger is a bit different and I couldn´t find a place where I could change the video frame size. Anybody knows?


27 August, 2011

Apparat - Arcadia

You remember the last song from Apparat I posted? Holdon? This is my second favourite from the newly discovered band.

25 August, 2011

Foster The People - Pumped Up Kicks

Tomorrow we are having our annual summer closing party in Estonia´s summer capital Pärnu. So as the last "summer song" enjoy this. Song full of summer breeze and lightness.

The Weeknd - Wicked Games

Another one.

24 August, 2011

The Weeknd - High For This

When I posted the first song from The Weeknd I already said that I wanna look into their creation more. It took me a long time (it´s summer, right), but today I finally took the time and it was pure quality.

The first one and I´ll keep them coming.

12 August, 2011

The Baseballs - Hello

I can´t believe how cool one cover can be. Martin Solveig´s "Hello" in 60´s style. . And the video!

Thank you I&J!

03 August, 2011

John Frusciante & Ulrich Schnauss

Two of my favourite instrumental pieces. The first one has been my favourite for 5-6 years I think. The second one is my recent favourite. Just look at the video and listen to the song. Pure harmony.

John Frusciante - Murderers


Ulrich Schnauss - As If You've Never Been Away

01 August, 2011

The Neon Lights - Bedroom Party

As you can see from my recent posts, I have a chill mode on and this one isn´t an exception.

30 July, 2011

The amazing Positivus 2011

Hi guys,

We have an amazing music festival in Baltics called Positivus. It was the fifth one this year, but my first time to visit. I couldn´t be there on the first day, but I did my best on the second. I went there mainly for three reasons - OK GO!, Mark Ronson and the one and only Royksöpp!
I have 3 videos for you, one from each of them. But before you press the play button, please turn down the volume, because we filmed it with a mobile and the sound is just so terrible. Look at the screens on both sides of the stage to get a overview of the people and the artists.

But I have to say, it was amazing. It took place in the seaside town of Salacgriva, in the northern Latvia. 7 stages (one of them straight on the beach), more than 20 000 people and music from jazz to drum&bass.
I decided to make it as an annual event for me and if you haven´t been there, then don´t miss the next years festival.

The videos now. The first one OK GO!



Mark Ronson

Mark Ronson surprised me a lot. They performed with The Business Intl and also he played a DJ set. He played Martin Solveig - Hello, M.I.A - Paper Planes, his own song Bang Bang Bang but with a dubstep twist etc. He did a great job. It was 8PM and I still wanted to dance in the daylight like there is no tomorrow, the music was just so goood.


Royksöpp - What else is there

Royksöpp was amazing. The highlight of my summer for sure. Look at the screens on both sides of the stage, the costumes, the crowd.
PS! Yes, the girl with the stripes in the video is me (:

Gotye- Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra)

Oh! So beautiful! Just wait until the song starts, while listening it keeps getting better and better and better

Psst! I have sceduled many posts for you guys for the next week (one of them is a video review from the amazing Positivus festival I visited two weeks ago). So stay tuned!

Ewert and The Two Dragons - (In The End) There's Only Love

This song goes to two guys, who are just the biggest fans of this song. And when they start to sing along and dance, it´s hilarious (very cool hilarious :)

But this is one very talented Estonian band. If you have a chance to see them play live,
don´t miss it!

20 July, 2011

Mr. Little Jeans - The Suburbs [Arcade Fire Cover]

Thank you, Tim, for recommending this song!
I have to say I like when some of my friends know my taste of music so well, that they always know what I like. Tim nailed it again.

19 July, 2011

Santigold - GO! (feat. Karen O)

I went through my posts and for my surprise found that I had never published this song.
It is definitely worth sharing.
Really energetic and engages in seconds. Definitely a good song when you´re going out in the evening.
PS! Do you hear M.I.A as well? So similar.

18 July, 2011

Ed Sheeran - The A Team [Koan Sound Remix]

It´s amazingly chill (not to mention beautiful) and a perfect piece to listen when the city sleeps.

17 July, 2011

Jamie Woon - Shoulda

I know a lot of people relate songs to some special moments and/or persons. When I was younger, I did the same, but recently it has become quite rare. But this song reminds me one special person. We fell in love with that song together and during last month we have listened to it over and over again.

The song itself - magic!

Fatboy Slim

I think Fatboy Slim aka Norman Quentin Cook is a genius. You just have to be when you produce this kind of tunes.

I´ll share 3 of my recent favourites with you.
PS! If you´re at home, going to bed, then don´t press play. Everytime I listen to them, I just wanna dance. Dance, dance, dance.

So, my favourites at the moment.
Wonderful night.


Don't Let The Man Get You Down


Praise you

13 July, 2011

My favourites

Hi guys,

It´s good to be back :) I already missed my blog! Summer is so good in Estonia at the moment and it is really hard to stay inside. I rarely open my computer these days. After spending all day in the office all I wanna do after work is go out and spend some time with my friends. It´s a pity we don´t have access to youtube at work (big corporate rules), it would make it much more easier to make quick posts, because I have a lot of music waiting for you in my favourites.

But! As I said in my last post, this is the 200th post in this blog and I thought that I would like to take a look back and give you an overview of my favourite ones - songs that have been the most special to me during this time.
I secretly made this blog in October 2010. It was closed for 2 months. I collected music, added some of my favourites and the biggest issue was with the design. It took me a long time to finally figure out what to do with that. I knew that the templates blogger offers, aren´t for me. One night I opened my Illustrator and made the header to the blog. The same one I´m using right now as well. Two days after that I opened it and posted it for first time to my Facebook profile. The welcome was warmer than I would have ever guessed.
Thank you for that!

I really wanted to select 10 of my favourite ones, but as always, it was too complicated and I ended up with 12 song.
PS! They are in random order.

1. Hot Chip - I feel better

It was the first song in this blog and it was for a reason. It was my favourite one for months. I played it over and over again and it was just so magical every time.



2. Florence + The Machine - Cosmic Love

Florence was one of my favourite artists in 2010 and it all began with this song. There is something so powerful in it and it can really take me away.



3. Beck and Bat For Lashes - Let's Get Lost
It was autumn 2010. "Let´s Get Lost" and the previous "Cosmic Love" were like a dynamic duo for me.



4. DJ Fresh - Gold Dust
Love from the first beat. The song just gets me going every time.



5. The XX - Heart Skipped a Beat
My favourite one from The XX. There´s a strange thing with this one. In Oct, Nov 2010 I played it a lot and now, few weeks ago, I rediscovered it and it´s like magic. All I wanna do is listen to that song. I have already played it 3 times this morning and I can´t get enough.



6. Bedouin Soundclash - Brutal Hearts (feat. Coeur De Pirate)
My Sis discovered it and posted to my Facebook wall. First days I just listened and listened and walked around clapping my hands. Strange, huh. But don´t blame me, blame the song, it´s just so fantastic. Listen to it and let me know after you have discovered yourself walking around and clapping your hands with a stupid smile on your face :))



7. Drapht - Rapunzel
I have a friend who always knows the best reggae related music. Oh, we have had the most fun with this song. It always reveals the dancing maniacs in us.



8. Nufrequency ft Shara Nelson - Go That Deep
When someone would ask me which is my favourite song of all time, I would say this one.
I have the most special memories with that song. All the quiet nights, when everybody were already sleeping and I took time to write poetry and think my own thoughts with a warm cup of tea. These nights were really amazing.



9. OneRepublic - Good Life
This song always reminds me that Life Is Good. I know that, but a piece of music always makes these thoughts and moments perfect.



10. Adele - Rolling In The Deep (Jamie xx Shuffle)
I think you have already noticed that I think Adele is just perfect! And Jamie from The XX makes always the greatest remixes. When they two collaborate, it has to be magic!



11. Clare Maguire - The Last Dance (Chase & Status Remix)
I wanted to add the original one to the list as well, but it was complicated enough to select only 10 (yes, I know, it still ended up with 12). But I really like them both. Clare Maguire is something like Hot Chip for me. Something special, something magical. Always gets me going.



12. Antony & The Johnsons - Another World [S.I.N BOOTLEG]
When one acquaintance introduced me this piece of music, she said that it´s addictive. And it is. It´s just so beautiful. The beat in the back is sooooooo good. I really love the song.




I hope you like the songs and if you have any thoughts regarding the posts (what music are you fond of and like to find here more ofter, or would you like more text with the posts etc), the feedback is always very welcome.

Thank you!

Yours,
Anneliis

Vacation

Hi guys,

As I´m off to Spain tomorrow, it´ll be quite quiet here for some time. But! The next post will be a bit more special, because it will be 200th post. I can´t believe myself that with only 6 month that much good music has already gathered here :)

Enjoy the summer!

Yours,
Anneliis



01 June, 2011

Katy B - Easy Please Me

The girl everyone is crazy for and I have to admit, she knows how to make drum in a way that everybody loves it - the ones who listen it every day and the ones who ordinary doesn´t even like it.
The freshest song from her.

Jamie Woon - Street

I´m still obsessed with mister Woon.
Another favourite one (especially with a very good soundsystem :)

17 May, 2011

Chase and Status Ft. Delilah - Time (Queensway Remix)

I´m not really fond of the original, but I like that remix. Much smoother.

Chase & Status - Cover Foo Fighters Rope

Chase & Status - a duo with a quite wide variety of music produced. They took a challenge and covered Foo Fighters. Suits me very well at the moment.

Frank Ocean - Nature Feels

After few warm days the autumn came to town. Yes, I know, the rain and wearing a warm coat isn´t my first choice as well. Still, music keeps the mood up until sun decides to come back (please, make it fast!).
Piece of music that keeps me going.

12 May, 2011

Coachella 2011 Mixtape by The Kickdrums

Some rnb, some alternative, some drum, etc.
Just listen, it is definitely worth it!

The Weekend - The Morning

After listening to this piece of The Weekend I really want to take some time and look into their creation. Sounds really nice!

Jakatta - One Fine Day

We skipped spring this year in Estonia and the summer is in town (jei!).
+20C outside is just so enjoyable!
Im off to Spain in few weeks (can´t wait!) and I started to collect (rediscover) all the summer theme songs and I want to share with you my fav one. If you have any summer song recommendations, please share! I´d love to hear them :)

27 April, 2011

Sophie Ellis Bextor - Synchronised

New song, new album.
I like.

"Make a Scene is the upcoming fourth studio album from English singer/songwriter Sophie Ellis-Bextor, set for release in Russia on April 18, 2011. It is her first studio album since 2007's Trip the Light Fantastic." Wiki

Miles Kane - Rearrange (Skreamix)

So, there hasn´t been any dubstep related songs recently. I´ll make it up!
Here is a piece which I first thought was dubstep, on a second thought I realized that there is also a cup of drum and bass in it. After that smarter people told me that yes, there is a genre nowadays called dubdrum. Who would have guessed, right.

It is also quite lyrical, so ladies, listen up!

4hero ft. Ursula Rucker - Time

You´re welcome to enjoy some jazz!
4Hero is 4Hero - that little great tune in the back you can recognize almost every time,
it´s just so 4Hero.

S. Carey - In The Dirt

Thanks to Laura (greetings to Australia!) I got to know this great song. I really like it!
A bit melancholic, beautiful and with a great tune. So, enjoy!

17 April, 2011

Captivating music?

For a while now I have been looking something from the music world that is mind-blowing good. I have captured a lot of good music, but a piece of music with that x-factor is missing. Do you have a song you really enjoy? Please, share! And dont draw any lines in genres - from hip-hop to electronic and classic to rock - everything is welcome. The world of music is too good to limit ourselves by drawing the lines, right :)

So please, leave a link or the name of the song in the comments, good music is for sharing :)
And if I post the piece, I promise, I´ll leave a credit!

Thank you!
Anneliis

Lauryn Hill - Repercussions

Sunny Sunday. Time off. This song. Enjoyment.

Moderat - Rusty Nails

Great dubstep piece with a recognisable Burial tone in the back.

11 April, 2011

Map overlay



I have to admit, I really like muusikamaagia´s map overlay. With less than 3 months from the start, we have visitors from 28 countries. Hope we can get someone from Africa as well :)
Really good to see you here, keep on coming and leave your feedback - it´s really appreciated :)
Thank you and see you soon!


LCMDF - Future Me

Sun, please come out, I wanna dance in the park like there is no tomorrow.
Thank you beforehand!
Yours truly,
Anneliis

London Elektricity - Elektricity Will Keep Me Warm

I like the nice and easy side of London Electricity. Okay, "All Hell Is Breaking Loose" is also a hell of a good one. But this new masterpiece is exactly my cup of tea.



A bit similar to the earlier one, this is my all-time favourite from LE guys.
London Elektricity - Outnumbered.

Ghostpoet - Survive It

Music lovers community called WAYF (We are your friends) wished a good spring with that song and I´ll join them. It´s a really nice piece of music. Check out their Facebook here.

I Blame Coco - Selfmachine

Coco has the x-factor.

Mr Little Jeans - Rescue Song

Come home after a busy day and relax with this song.
I tried it and worked perfectly.

06 April, 2011

Jamie Woon

Tonight it´s all about Jamie Woon. I knew one song from the artist before, the Wayfaring Stranger (collaboration with Burial), but he is full of surprise I tell you.

Firstly, my first Jamie Woon´s song - Wayfaring Stranger with Burial. It is a bit different from the next ones as it is more like a dubstep masterpiece, but take a moment and listen.


Now the Lady Luck and Night Air. A bit smoother and maybe a bit more ladies cup of teas.




31 March, 2011

Lykke Li - I Follow Rivers (The Magician Remix)

Pretty cool! Lykke Li´s new album is out and besides all the good stuff there, I think we can expect a lot of good remixes too!

17 March, 2011

Clare Maguire - The Last Dance

I heard it couple of times from the radio (yes, the place you rarely find good new music) and I knew that I have to find out what song is it.. and now, after listening it for a x number of times, Im so attached I cant get enough.

Lisa Gerrard

Lisa Gerrard has probably made the most fabulous movie themes I know.

Like Man on Fire end theme (and be patient, the music has to grow :)


and Gladiator theme (and still - patience :)

16 March, 2011

22 February, 2011

Indivision & Tiiu - Other Clouds

Oi, eestlased on andekad. Oi kui andekad.

Kõrvalhüpe - Muutmata kujul

Kas mäletate, kui Eesti noored ja andekad drummimeistrid tegid mõnda aega tagasi valmis pala "Pilvedesse peidetud"? Nüüd on neil kolmas singel väljas ja mu meelest aint paremaks läheb.



"Pilvedesse peidetud" ka

Flashback - Fat Freddy's Drop ft Jazzanova

Jazzanova. Mmm. Armas B. ütles, et hea on hea ja mina noogutan temaga kaasa.

Nitin Sawhney - Immigrant

Rediscovering one of the most special songs I know.

19 February, 2011

It´s all about Jenna G tonight

Long story told short ehk Jenna G on üks lahedamaid dnb lauljaid üldse ja 19. märts on ta Tallinnas, Balous. Soojenduseks siin ta pehmemat loomingut :)

D1 ft. JENNA G - "Flood of Emotions"



Jenna G - You (lempar!)

Phaeleh - Afterglow (feat. Soundmouse)

Ladies & ... Ladies. Smth for you!

08 February, 2011

07 February, 2011

Antony & The Johnsons - Another World [S.I.N BOOTLEG]

Ma parem ei alusta kiitmisega, ei saa pärast veel pidama, eks. Aga kuulake kindlasti, üks parimaid palasid viimasel ajal.

05 February, 2011

Adele - Rolling In The Deep (Jamie xx Shuffle)

Täh Leenule. Täielik reede pärl :)
PS! Ohtlik kuulata tööl oma laua taga klapid peas. Tekib vastupandamatu tahtmine tõusta ja tantsida ja tantsida ja tantsida.

30 January, 2011

23 January, 2011

Nufrequency ft Shara Nelson - Go That Deep

Ma kahtlustan, et see on mu lemmiklugu läbi aastate. Kunagi mängis Nufrequncy kodulehele minnes see lugu repeati peal ja ma hoidsin tunde vahepeal seda lehte lahti, kuulasin ja kuulasin. Sõltuvus on selle asja nimi.

14 January, 2011

Drapht "Rapunzel"

Üks eriti muhe ja fun pala veel lisaks eelnevale reedeõhtusele palale.

Dancing On My Own - Robyn (Deadmau5 Remix)

Reedeõhtused (süngemad) palad.

James Blake - Limit To Your Love

Imestasin, et seda siin blogis ei ole. Nüüd viga parandatud. Kuulakem! Lihtsalt kuulakem! Bassikõlaritele see lugu krediiti ei anna just..

12 January, 2011

Goldie - Inner City Life

Drummi üheksakümnendatest. Jah, just! Mina siis veel kaugeltki sellist muusikat ei kuulanud aga teadjamehed teavad rääkida, et tegu oli üheksakümnendate ühe suurima hitiga. Kui Sulle drumm meeldib, just selline rohke lüürikaga drumm, siis kuula :)

10 January, 2011

Mutya Buena - Fast Car

Remember Tracy Chapman - Fast Car? This one is a (pretty damn good) newer version.

09 January, 2011

Whitenoize ft. Judy Hayward - smile on a dog

Umbes 2 aastat tagasi, kui üks sõber mulle seda lugu esimest korda tutvustas ja ütles, et see on arvatavasti parim drummi lugu, mida ta teab, ei olnud ma kohe päri aga täna pean vist tunnistama, et jah, tal oli õigus.

Mark Ronson & The Business - Somebody To Love Me

Heatujulaul.

Lykke Li - I Follow Rivers

Ei jõua armsa Rootsi indiekuninganna märtsis ilmuvat plaati ära oodata. Samalt plaadilt lugu "Get some" juba kuulasite?

06 January, 2011

Kmag lemmikud remixid 2010

Üks vahva sõber jagas Kmagi linki, kus lugejad valisid oma 2010 aasta lemmikud remixid läbi kõikide źanrite. Siin minu favourite ones random järjekorras :)

The XX - Crystalised (Dark Sky Remix)


Drake Fireworks (deadboy slo mo house edit)


Andreya Triana - A Town Called Obsolete (Mala Remix)


05 January, 2011

In The Morning - Fuzzy Logik ft Egypt

Gloria Estefan was right - finally the Rhythm is going to get you! Or in this case, the creators of this song :)
