Over half a year has passed since honeyed voiced R&B pop starlet Alina Baraz released Electric, but I’m still so caught up by the sensual simmering and luscious swooning electro R&B track featuring Texas sensation Khalid. The pair dropped a stellar remix pack for the song last Friday, featuring esteemed production artists and electro pop talent like R3hab, Tim Gunter, Marian Hill, and Hippie Sabotage. The Electric Remixes EP also features this shiver inducing, rich oscillating edit by Alaskan producer Electric Mantis. A touch of dissonance endows its synths, giving it a captivating effect, as if listening to the choppy driving, moody warbling track through the spaciousness of a swelling, twisting water. We’re caught up in its rippling tides and shuddering bass, and we gladly surrender for all eternity to its pulls, shoves, tugs, and thrusts. The remix EP for Alina Baraz’s Electric is available from iTunes, here.

El Paso R&B soul wunderkid Khalid seems to be popping up all over the place these days, and it’s probably safe to say he’s one of the most exciting figures in the scene right now. Khalid makes his latest appearance on Alina Baraz’s heralded return, Electric, and the track couldn’t have been anointed a more fitting name. Electric, though downtempo sparse and dispersed, is a shockwave of sensual luscious electro R&B. Khalid’s crackling, simmering voice is the perfect companion to Alina Baraz’s supple angelic elegance. Despite her long period of silence prior to this single’s arrival, the wild buzz surrounding Alina Baraz has not lost any of its intensity. Her return to San Francisco in late March and early April sold out within minutes, and I was one of the poor souls to have missed out on my chance to snag golden tickets to see her live yet again. Stream or purchase Electric from major services, here.

I can’t wait to catch Alina Baraz & Galimatias dole out their sensual and sleek electronic serenades when they play the super duper sold out Popscene at San Francisco’s DNA Lounge in exactly two weeks from now. In the meantime, let’s dance to a jolting remix of Alina Baraz & Galimatias’ Fantasy by Belgian producer The Magician. It’s a crisply bouncing, bass booming blend of future house and deep house, one that’s hypnotically pulsing and steady. The Magician’s remix is a free download if you head over to Soundcloud.

Alina Baraz & Galimatias are coming to San Francisco to melt a crowd of people in unison come September 30th, and it’s no surprise to me at all that the tickets for the Popscene presented event have already sold out. After all, everyone’s in love with their feathery, sensual music. But what if that soft, cottony sound gets drenched in graceful, breezy chill house? Hotel Garuda’s here to answer that question with a sublime remix of Alina Baraz & Galimatias’ Make You Feel. I think the answer would be… “wow”.  Bask in the glow of remix perfection as you float away to the Balearic luxuriance of the soothing yet propulsive sparkler. The dreamy treat will be available on iTunes come August 21st. Stream on Spotify above in the meantime, or Soundcloud below.

Alina Baraz and Galimatias have certainly succeeded at casting a sensual spell on us with their rippling, verdant brand of seductive, melodic electronic music. One of my favorite tracks from the singing and production duo is surely flirty yet soothing Fantasy, off their aptly named recent EP Urban Flora. The gently rippling and soulful track finally received a music video treatment, a fittingly fluid and alluring array of images.

Get ready to be transported to a magical world of dreamy, mellow enchantment and sensual neo-soul on Can I, a succulent collaboration between Alina Baraz and Danish producer Galimatias. It’s the two artist’s second single from their album Urban Flora. Alina’s gentle, alluring vocals pair beautifully with Galimatias’ rich and entrancing production. The two together fully demonstrate their capability to weave a world of haunting, simmering passion.

America’s Alina Baraz previously teamed up with Danish producer Galimatias on chill, future pop tune Pretty Thoughts. Well, they’re back at it again with Fantasy, an equally mellow and serene gem that sparkles the way sunlight does on a peacefully rippling lake. Pretty Thoughts might be chill, but there’s plenty of future soul tinted groove as the song carries on. Together, Alina baraz and Galimatias will be releasing an EP, titled Urban Flora, later this Fall.

Today seems to be filled with dreamy, otherwordly, atmospheric music. For another fine specimen, taste this exquisite tune Pretty Thoughts by Alina Baraz & Galimatias. American singer songwriter Alina’s smooth, soulful vocals are paired with relaxed, chilled out, minimalist production by Danish producer Galimatias. There’s a future pop-ish quality to the track that sounds like a really laid back, and much warmer Purity Ring, not unlike the softer moments in Purity Ring’s collaboration with producer Jon Hopkin’s (Clear The Air). Pretty Thoughts is off their Drifts single, which also includes the amazing, almost jazzy Make You Feel. Check it out below.
