Fudo Kazuki – Colour
Fudo Kazuki is a music producer from Ukraine, although if you read his bio you could be mistaken – “I’m not a real musician, I would just write tracks from time to time as a selftherapy.” Even if Fudo doesn’t want to admit it he is a real musician and his music goes a long way to confirm that.

Merce – Rain City (ft. Farisha)
Happy Monday Morning everyone! I am sure you are all delighted its the start of a new week. I am for one as I get to showcase a great tune from Helsinki in Finland. The tune is Merce – Rain City (ft. Farisha). Its a chillstep, electro song with a totally absorbing chord progression that both captivates and enthrals.
The main chords are provided courtesy of a delayed 80′s sounding synth that seems captured in a dream. The vocals sit delicately placed on top of the chords coasting freely and beautifully. The whole tune speaks of rising above a horizon escaping from the murky world below. The song is driven yet refrained with the cleverly crafted beat constantly reigning in the ever escaping melody.
Listening to other songs from Merce it is clear he has a passion for these dreamy chillstep vibes and he certainly does it well.
