When We Are Divided, Cuebrick is Here to Help “United”

Hey look, a wild Cuebrick has appeared! This artist has sure been busy since he last visited us in April. Cuebrick brings with him his latest release over on Enhanced, “United”, in collaboration with fellow artist The Future Is Mine. As we mentioned above, Cuebrick has been busy playing every festival known to man over the last year. This is an impressive feat, as he only broke onto the EDM scene three years following some success in Germany’s dance scene. Since appearing on the scene, Cuebrick has been able to garner plenty of support from powerhouses such as Tiesto, Nicky Romero, and Armin Van Buuren.

Now how is the gift that Cuebrick brought us? His most recent collaboration, “United” is a track that tells the story of a community, no a nation divided, and how we need to be united in times of struggle. Music is a universal language, after all.  The track features moving vocals and soothing melodies, all over some soft chords that are even more complimented by the last-minute choir providing back up. The message is uplifting: “It is time to recognize that we share hopes, dreams, fears, and struggles…we are one.’

Be sure to listen to “United” below!

Another Enhancement: Arcando Ft. MenEnd “Is It Possible”

Enhanced Music has been enhancing our music playlists for quite a while now, so it is always quite the surprise when they bring us their next release. This week we have the first Enhanced production by newcomer Arcando with “Is It Possible”. Arcando has been rising in the Dutch electronic scene for a hot minute and has even become an official remixer for Hardwell and Armin van Burren! What an achievement to work with two major powerhouses in the genre.

As for his first Enhanced release, “Is It Possible” is a delightful end of summer anthem from some of the freshest talent around. His first production is actually a collaboration with Mexican R&B singer MenEnd, whose vocal work just makes the track absolutely mesmerizing. Don’t take our word for it, as Arcando is the only one who can describe it accurately:

It started all with a moombahton drum groove I had for the drop. On top of that I made some chords with a Nexus piano and replaced the sound with a pluck. Then I made the vocal lead for the drop and tried to make it more interesting by adding a slight change every 2 bars. I made the break and build up in 3-4 days and sent it over to the vocalist MenEnd. He wrapped up the vocal line and lyrics and sent it my way. I played around with the vocal, so the track would get more unique and exciting. That’s how Is It Possible was born.” – Arcando

Make sure you give “Is It Possible” a full listen below:

Newcomer Hariz Receives the Zookeper Treatment With a Zookeper Remix of “OVRBRD”

We at MiR absolutely enjoy it when newcomers have their work remixed by some seasoned talent. This week we have the latest from Zookeper over at Enhanced Music, who brings us a delicious remix from newcomer Hariz. Hariz recently released his debut track, “OVRBRD”, and we just had to cover it when Zookeper got his hands on it. If you are familiar with Zookeper, one of the original members of Cash Cash, you would know that his style was a perfect match with Hariz’s original track.

“I got sent this song by Hariz and I really liked the vocal melody and vibe of the record. Right away I had ideas for where to take the song’s production. I produced the song out with some horns and I sampled a piece of Hariz‘ original vocal to make up the bulk of the production. I changed the drum programming and did some additional sound design, the whole thing was done really quickly. I’m really happy I got to collaborate with Hariz on this release.” – Zookëper.

Now does Zookeper do the original track justice? Of course it does! The addition of Zookeper’s style takes an already amazing track and move it on up to the next level. While Hariz’s skill as a multi-instrumentalist adds plenty of amazing cred, Zookeper’s sound design takes the track and ramps it up with a concoction of rolling synths and heavy percussion. We can easily groove along as the track fills our office.

Make sure you give the “OVRBRD (Zookeper Remix) a full listen below:
