Who else, but fast rising production star Shallou could give Petit Biscuit a truly proper remix treatment? The Chicago songwriting and production talent has given Petit Biscuit’s collaboration with Lido, Problems, a jaw dropping re-imagination. You can even watch some of the process via a music video for the remix above. The original version of the song has surpassed 20 million streams. Shallou’s remix comes just as Petit Biscuit is making his Coachella debut these weekends. Both artists are without a doubt some of the most exciting producers in the scene right now, future music magnates in the making. Problems gets a celestial and ethereal re-working in Shallou’s expert hands. The spry and sprightly Odesza and Slow Magic like remix is pure euphoria, a true celebration of love. Shallou will be releasing his new Souls EP on April 27th. Indulge in a dreamy sparkling taste off the EP by streaming Vignette below. Let is float you high up into a fluorescent sky. Pre-order Souls, here.

It’s with a massive amount of grief that I had to miss shallou’s sold out set at the Rickshaw Stop last month. There’s no doubt that the Chicago based songwriting and production genius is a brilliant musician. His ethereal and other-worldly soundscapes fill us with starry eyed wonder, often evoking future bass and chill trap luminaries like Odesza and Petit Biscuit. If you missed out on his latest single Find, we’ve got you covered. Float away to his twinkling soul-searcher, a collaboration with Swedish producer Kasbo and satin voiced Cody Lovaas. We soar through the atmosphere with the trifecta on the wings of the mellifluously flickering beauty, which is the second track to be unveiled from Shallou’s forthcoming Souls EP, out April 27th. Catch shallou at various festivals and gigs this year, including including a weekend performance at Okeechobee. Pre-order Souls, here. Find is available as a single, here.

Before we call it a night after this long and arduous day, we’d like to turn your attention to the latest from Chicago based songwriting and production prodigy Shallou. The artist has already sold out his tour stop in San Francisco on February 22nd at the Rickshaw Stop, which is part of Noise Pop’s annual festival. This comes as no surprise considering the success of his prior singles, including You and Me, which has been topping charts and racking up millions upon millions of streams. And he’s about to support Big Gigantic on tour next month, too, so we can expect his star to shine even brighter as the year progresses. Shallou enlists RIAH on saccharine vocals to round out sublime new single Lie, on which he deftly demonstrates why he’s become such a hotly buzzing electronic attraction. The supple and lissome, graceful and fluid cascade is adorned with lush orchestral strings and a misty, wistful beauty. Despite the melancholia running in its undercurrents, Lie is a buoyant pumping infusion of luxuriant house, mellifluous electropop, and limber future bass. Lie arrives with a breathtaking music video whose snow capped mountains, exquisite auroras, and cloud shrouded peaks build upon the song’s wondrously panoramic scope. Lie is available via major platforms, here.

Songwriter and producer Shallou, who’s now based out of Chicago, has dazzled us many times over with both his originals and his brilliant remixes. He brings his trademark dusky enchantment in full on gorgeous new single You and Me, a dreamy introspective twilight gem with gracefully swiveling synths, soft tinkling keys, and wonderfully entrancing, airy wafting vocals. You and Me’s soft glow and nostalgic wistfulness takes us on a magical journey through the night sky. We gaze at the world below us in wonder even as eyes search for the one we are yearning for. We hang on to hope on this peaceful evening. Re-visit Shallou’s debut EP and his other magnetic tunes on Soundcloud, here. Purchase/stream You and Me, here.

Silky chiffon future soul and electronica greets out ears on this fine summer morning, courtesy of New Zealand producer BAYNK, who’s teamed up with New Orlean’s Shallou on his latest sublime masterpiece, Come Home. The cool rippling, weightless flickering, and diaphanous gusting single is like HONNE and Nick Murphy gone supple and sheer future beats. Shallou lends velveteen vocals and co-production skills to Come Home, which is a taste off of BAYNK’s debut EP, expected to arrive this fall. Come Home is available for streaming/purchasing, here.

The fact that so many gifted producers have taken upon themselves to remix Klangstof’s music is a testament to the Norwegian band’s brilliance. Close Eyes To Exit was probably one of 2016′s best debut albums. New Orleans’ Shallou is the latest artist to remix Klangstof’s Hostage, and there’s no denying the breathtaking beauty of his celestial edit.

Klangstof’s meditative fusion of indie rock, electronica, and post-rock is taken full advantage of on Shallou’s ambient approach. His nocturnal wonderland ebbs and tides under a gentle current. It twinkles, lopes, and bobs with intrinsic grace and elegance. Hostage, despite its name, has never felt more freeing. A gentle kiss of unsullied beauty and a soft graze of innocence is bestowed upon Hostage by Shallou, whose remix is available to stream and purchase, here.

I’ve been on the MIAMIGO train ever since the British duo first entrapped me with their slinky, twisted synthpop music a year ago. Hard To Love is a favorite from the band, with its stormy emotion. New Orleans based producer Shallou gives Hard To Love an extra dose of haunting atmosphere on a minimalist yet sweeping electronic remix. Ever brooding and dark, Shallou’s Hard To Love is seductively impassioned and intoxicating. The original is off MIAMIGO’s Hard To Love EP, out now on their own label Indian Hop recordings.

Philadelphia’s CRUISR easily won me over the moment I heard their brand of sweet and radiant indie pop music, and I was infinitely elated when they dropped a fantastic tune a few months ago named Go For It. I was pretty happy to catch it live twice at SXSW back in March (yes, I caught CRUISR live twice in Austin). It’s no surprise to me that the glowing song is the perfect specimen for an indie electronic remix. New Orleans based producer Shallou turns in a gorgeously enchanting and fantastical remix full of ethereal, dreamy synths and chill but vivid shimmers. CRUISR will be playing a string of shows with Bleachers and Joywave soon. That’s quite a killer lineup.

Shallou’s back with more of his dusky, intoxicating electronic music. Surface is a song that carries much depth despite its name. Clattering percussion, gentle piano, and a chill atmosphere pair stirringly with Shallou’s soulful vocals. Despite mellow vibes, the song’s buoyant tempo gives it a sanguine warmth. At the end of the day, Surface will have you dancing around in pleasure.

From New Orlean comes a talented producer by the name of Shallou, and he crafts dusky, exquisite electronic songs sure to take you on an ethereal, dreamy journey. Reykjavik is his latest jam, a reverie inducing, sparkling delight. I’ve never been to Iceland, and have always wanted to visit… I imagine it to be as magical as how Shallou’s beautiful, minimalist song sounds. He reminds me of Australian producer Ta-ku on the song, with a some soulfulm Sampha like vocals gliding and swirling through the gorgeous soundscape. For another terrific, ambient treat from Shallou, also stream recent song Years below.
