BBC Sound of 2018 announced their nominees for their long list less than a day ago, and I can’t be happier with many of their picks. Scottish singer songwriter Lewis Capaldi has been selected to the hallowed roster, and we wholeheartedly agree with the choice. His remarkable voice is exceptionally moving, as is the raw authenticity and sheer power of his soulful alt music. As such, it makes perfect sense that a remix by Toronto producer and musician Tep No would be very fruitful, too. After all, Tep No’s creations are always deeply affecting. He tugs at our heart strings once again with a surprisingly propulsive remix of Lewis Capaldi’s Fade. It’s as if he’s plucking gently at them during the edit’s more chill melodic moments, then stretching them to breaking point with electrifying swells and his synth shimmering melodic bass ridges. Fade does exactly the opposite of its namesake. It leaves a timeless imprint on us even as we turn around and expose ourselves to its breathtaking crescendos and heartfelt furrows once again.

Creamy smoldering dance meets radiant glittering pop on Fade, a mouthwatering gem from San Diego’s Caden Jester featuring a mysterious UK vocalist named Butterjack. Caden Jester has been serving up sultry pop originals this past year, and you can’t deny this new track is extra juicy and particularly gooey swooning. The 19 year old production talent has had his music featured on The Fosters and MTV’s Undressed. His ascent is sure to quicken as he quickens our pulse with Fade, a song both hypnotic and scintillating with its breezy percussion and coruscant synths. Fade is a hit in the making that evokes smooth polished DJ Snake with a drizzle of Milky Chance’s rugged drawl. Alternate streaming links and download options are available, here.

French producer Kidswaste, who’s also a member of super collective Slow Hours, follows up on his recent remixes of Petit Biscuit and What So Not with a breathtaking new original named Fade, featuring New York indie folk brothers Hunting Stories on beautiful vocals. Fade is a majestic charging chill electronic song brimming with heart bursting emotion. “I met Hunting Stories around two years ago when I was just getting into producing”, says Kidswaste. “I loved their sound and told them I wanted to collaborate in the future with them once the opportunity arose. In late 2016 we revisited the idea and decided to start something. They sent me the vocals for ‘Fade’ and I instantly fell in love with it. I got most of the main ideas done in five hours, it was all really organic and it’s definitely come to be one of my proudest projects. ‘Fade’ feels really indicative of where my sound is heading and I’m really excited to share it”. The song they’ve crafted together is like Ry X and Of Monsters And Men gone diaphanous dream folk and earthy chill house, with a bit of filous’ mellow stirring, organic strumming timbre in its foundations. Purchase Fade, here.

It’s obvious New Arcades aren’t going to fade into oblivion any time soon, or any time not so soon, for that matter. Their synthpop is as grandly magnificent and epic sweeping as ever been on new single Fade. The British duo melds 80′s retrowave, like that of The Midnight, with the widescreen splendor of M83 on their latest technicolor anthem. Fade is breathtaking, a neon high rise that lifts us up to dizzying heights of bittersweet catharsis. Fade will be available via all major platforms come July 28th. You can find more of New Arcades’ music on Soundcloud, here.

Great Grandpa will be releasing their debut album Plastic Cough on July 7th via Double Double Whammy. Despite the fact that this is coming up soon, I’ve somehow managed to miss out on the Seattle based rock band,until now. New track Fade changes everything. It hooked me straight in with its vibrant pop hooks and 90′s rock riffs. Fade is a scuzzy knotted explosion of warm nostalgia and restless angst, an addictive rush that ends too soon. Immediately after plenteous listens to Fade, I had to dive into Great Grandpa’s prior single off Plastic Cough, Teen Challenge, which you can stream below, too. It’s yet another gritty chugging Weezer meets Slothrust thriller. Great Grandpa has announced a full US Summer tour with Rozwell Kid that include dates with Vundabar and Chris Farren, too. Pre-order Plastic Cough, here.

Producer Roland Tings turns fellow Australian electronic act Catlips’ debut single Fade into a mesmerizing late night deep house treat. It’s a seductive and spacey remix that exudes both swanky elegance and a teasing playfulness. Think Toro Y Moi hopped up on some caffeine, electrified and wide eyed.

Psst. If you haven’t heard yet, Adventure Club just dropped a new one. And Fade is spectacular. The Canadian electronic trio enlisted Los Angeles’ Zak Waters to guest on the track. Fade is absolutely intoxicating and a full on melodic dubstep thriller, sure to raise some goosebumps and cause some shivers.

Santa Barbara duo Mexico City Blondes follow up their terrific debut track Fade with second single Colors. It’s a sultry treat with some crunchy guitars and an abundance of retro flavored soulfulness. Colors is available now on iTunes. Debut single Fade is still my favorite, however, and from the looks of it, it was many peoples’ favorite. Revisit the bittersweet, dynamic gem below. If you missed my prior feature, I beseech you not to pass up on it this time.
