COOL PRODUCERS MAKING MAGIC
Artist: KYN KRUNK
Location: Erfenbach, Germany Genre: Instrumentals/Hip-Hop
Awesome beats, surprising melodies and a sound that feels like you’re listening to an old record you just discovered in an underground shop are the feelings I get when listening to Kyn Krunk. Kyn certainly lives up to the Krunk! Each of Kyn’s tracks are unique in that they provide the listener with such rich sonic textures that you can almost piece together your own cinematic story. I found myself saying, “Yes!” a lot while listening to these beats. Check em out here and visit his facebook for more info! https://www.facebook.com/KYNKRUNK

I’m Blue (JackEL Remix) – Eiffel65
This is a good remix to a familiar friend I’ve known for years, Eiffel 65’s classic song, “I’m Blue.” The remix is cool, so much so that I reposted it on soundcloud and played it again and again! Now this track is my favorite. It’s great and as for JackEL’s other works, you simply have to check em out. You must do yourself a favor and hit play.
Then discover “Fire Storm”! I’m telling you, discover “Fire Storm”. “Bird Machine” was woah, “I’m Blue Remix” was wow and “Fire Storm” was woooooah with some great samples there, but I just wish it was a longer song. Too Short!
Why are all these hot songs I like short? That’s when I hear this….https://soundcloud.com/officialjackel/lrad-vs-animals-jackel-mashup . The problem is solved because this mashup that follows “Fire Storm” is CRAZY. ENJOY!! Oh and then there’s the song, “Like A Pyramid Scheme”….see what happens when you listen? You can’t stop and just want to keep listening. That’s the mark of good music wouldn’t you say??? Just HIT PLAY!
Don’t forget to tune in next week for post 6 and more fresh free tunes and news! Till next time music lovers!!!
Peace & Viva Good Music!!!
