Egg Pudding gives us an insight into their latest mix:
I wanted to create a playlist that blew you into space every time you needed a pickup.
1) “Dying w/ Thousands of Youth” – iwilldiehere – 00:00
I wanted to open up with something slow, but just interesting enough to catch your attention.
2) “Melting Ice” – Elekid – 04:01
“Melting Ice” was a song that slapped me in the face. I was relaxed and then hit with a full wave of beautiful sound. I put it in this playlist because I wanted to smack anyone that listened to it as well.
3) “Pay Phone” – Fantom ’87 – 08:16
Tracking a little more into synthwave, “Pay Phone” reminded me back of old 80’s Sci-Fi movies.
Sung by a beautiful voice, Fire Inside caught my attention quickly. Then the song opened up even more.
5) “These Years” – Two Ways – 19:15
This song was relaxing. The heavy bass in the background kept you ground in, but guitar in the back flowed the song so nicely back out. A perfect duo.
6) “Envoy” – Faux Tales – 23:13
This was a song that I couldn’t just get over. It hit me in the face just like “Melting Ice”, but faster.
Avalanches speeds things up a bit, bringing dubstep into the mix. Something to keep your head up and pumping.
Time to get louder, the order of the music is important to me as well. Foundations just HAD to come right after Avalanches. A good reminder this is about space, and the kind of sound that needs to fill that void.
I’ve been a fan of Seven Lions for about a year now, I imagine the voice is as if there are 7 people singing, and those represent the lions. Regardless, these lions know how to roar out some good music.
10) “Miracle” – Andreas B. – 42:40
A graceful song with drums and the beat to keep it rolling.
11) “Before I Fall” – Killigrew – 46:20
Beautiful flow between bass and the chorus.
By far my favorite song of the mix. The original song only includes voice and piano; so is beautiful on it’s own. However, Sound Remedy’s remix was a thrill to listen to. I didn’t think you could turn such a song into a headbanger, but here it is.
