Musical Discovery: ‘Find Our Way’ by Midnight Kids feat. klei

Slowly but surely, a more relaxed form of dance music with a euphoric feel is making a resurgence, and Midnight Kids are certainly helping to bring it back with their atmospheric hit Find Our Way.

Having made a name for themselves already with huge remixes of tracks from the likes of The Chainsmokers and The Temper Trap, the DJing duo are now switching over to production with the release of their debut single.

In keeping with the pair’s remixing style, Find Our Way is quickly establishes a chilled tone in the verses, sticking to soft piano chords and a controlled beat in order to allow the vocalist (in this case, up-and-coming singer klei) to shine through and guide the listener to a loud and ecstatic chorus.

After some trap in the build-up, the track descends into galactic electronica full of intriguing synth sound effects, yet it’s the pulsing chords and bass lingering underneath the vocals and melody which deliver the subtle kick to this single.

Capturing a sense of mystery and intrigue with lingering instrumentals, Midnight Kids certainly live up to their name with this chilled dance debut.

Find Our Way is available now on Spotify and Apple Music.


Musical Discovery: X You – Avicii

Originally released in February last year, it’s a shame that I missed this great track from Avicii, called X You.

The track itself came from an online campaign by Avicii (real name, Tim Bergling) to try and collaborate with as many people as possible on the song. This catchy and feel-good track is the result.

The main melody for the song is bright and upbeat, with a strong pulse in the drum beat. Later on, the song descends into a deep, but nice grunge interlude. Overall, a great track from Avicii and other contributors to the finished product.
