FEELS seems a mighty appropriate name for this Helsinki based electronic pop group, led by singer songwriter Sofi Meronen and keyboardist Mikael Myrskog. The atmospheric rumbling that greats us in the opening bars of new single Gates are so palpable that they reverberate straight through to my soul. The single is the first taste from FEELS’ new four track EP to be released later this spring. The dark rippling, smooth shifting electronic pop found on Gates is inflected with mesmeric trip hop vibes, resulting in a resonating sound reminiscent of Hælos and Alpines. Though there’s an initial iciness to Gates, those “gates” soon open to let loose a sweeping, soaring, and uplifting form of scenic, cathartic pop. Gates can also be streamed via Spotify

I near choked on my coffee this morning when I saw an ECHOS and Seven Lions collaboration surface on my radar, I was that agitated with excitement. It was but a few Fridays ago that I eagerly caught ECHOS’ San Francisco debut at Popscene to learn how spectacularly rousing their music can truly be in person. The fact that this incredible Portland duo has partnered up with venerated melodic bass producer Seven Lions was the best spirit lifting news to arrive in a rather unfortunately glum election week. It comes as no surprise that ECHOS’ emotively exquisite, atmospheric heartrending electronica pairs gorgeously with Seven Lions’ production. Cold Skin is cavernous and expansive, yet intimately tender and stirring. Lexi’s exceptional voice lifts us to cathartic apexes while Seven Lions’ cinematic production packs in those endless infinite feels. Trust me, you’ll be hard pressed to find another electronic aria as moving as this one right now. Cold Skin is out now on Monstercat. Grab it from iTunes.

Kiiara’s aptly Feels is one of the bests songs that surfaced in 2015, and it spawned many a remix after moving countless other musicians and producers with its effervescent electronic pop. Los Angeles’ AWAY is the latest artist to present us with a sensational edit of the song. These “feels” take on some grand intensity on AWAY’s atmospheric and pensive future bass remix. We’re brought to the precipice of a magnificent cliff by the dramatic interpretation, its skittering moodiness rather ominous and darkly nebulous. It feels as if something portentous abounds. The air is heavy and a massive storm about to break. And we’re right there in the center of it.

As if those feels aren’t already overwhelming enough on buzzing starlet Kiiara’s Feels, NYC’s Jai Wolf amplifies the sheer power of the song with a stunning remix. His emotionally charged expanse of vastly dreamy future bass and thoroughly inspiring chill trap leaves me orbiting around the earth in heavenly exhilaration. There’s no doubt at all left behind that these two talents are some of the biggest stars in the scene right now. Jai Wolf’s remix of Feels drops on March 11th via Atlantic Records. Side note, it was sort of fun sitting in the backseat of the car the other day behind my not as music oriented friends as Kiiara came on. They were bantering over their enjoyment of her music, not at all knowing how supportive I am of Kiiara.

Yes indeed, you are correct if you’ve noticed this is the second Kiiara related track of the day. That girl is blowing it up everywhere these days! The alluring starlet’s song Feels is a song that still pops into my head at the most random moments to feel me with glee, and it’s received a gorgeous remix by Vancouver’s Felix Cartal who amplifies those feels in a chill house fashion full of spine tingling melodic beauty. Emotions wash over me endlessly while I’m submerged in this remix. Felix Cartal says he remixed the song because he loves it. Who doesn’t? Free download, here.

You might want to get a fire extinguisher ready, because this new one from Hotel Garuda is searing hot, like Steph Curry in the 1st quarter of tonight’s game against the Pels. It’s set the world on fire for me all day long since I first heard it this morning. The latest from the production duo is a remix of a song from one of my favorite new electronic pop artists this year. Infinite feels abound on their remix of Kiiara’s Feels. As loyal as I am to the effervescent pop song, I can’t help but succumb sublimely to the soothing future bass inflected house remix. Kiiara’s voice never seemed more enchanting and delicate, surrounded by the ethereal beauty and swelling cinematics of Candle Weather and Manila Killa’s magnetic production. There’s no escaping the cottony thrills on this one. It’ll carry you away with its rolling ripples and surging crests.

Madly buzzing electronic pop chanteuse Kiiara’s Feels gets a spectacular remix by Toronto’s Love They Brother. The duo give the song a pumping techno meets deep house makeover full of vivid vibrancy and pulsing buoyancy. It’s near impossible not to start moving your body to this dark and seductive yet breathtakingly lush edit. Love They Brother says that Kiiara told them to go wild with the remix, but they also wanted to stay true to the original’s vibe and Kiiara’s ethereal vocals.

Hippie Sabotage has doubly given their mark of approval to another buzzing new artist that I’ve been praising endlessly on IHM. Not only have they already remixed Kiiara’s Gold last month, they’ve now unleashed a remix of Feels, too! The Sacramento duo never fail to remix some of the most exciting emerging talent in the pop scene. This time around, they give newcomer Kiiara’s third song, Feels, a very droopy, syrupy The Weeknd sort of hip hop and R&B vibe. They’ve turned the track on its heels with the ominously stunning edit, pitch shifting Kiiara’s vocals and loading the track with a heavy murkiness. Feels, indeed.

So, I really didn’t expect Kiiara to drop another new one already, since I’m still so wrapped up in her previous songs, Gold and Tennessee, but I’m not one to complain when someone is infinitely talented and has more amazing music to share with us. Sure enough, on Feels, the fast rising Illinois starlet offers up another sparkling, effervescent electronic pop and R&B charmer, a Ryn Weaver meets How To Dress Well ethereal beauty with Brenton Duvall and Felix Snow on production duty. It’ll send tingling chills up your spine, as it did me.
