GRUM – Never Have To Be Alone

from The :id: Collective on Oct 1, 2018

Our general opinion of Grum over the last few years has been completely negative as he abandoned his original 80s tinged synthpop with a dive into progressive trance straight from the 10-meter platform. There was no easing us in, no transition period. “Never Have To Be Alone” gives us a bit of hope, as he’s brought some satisfying classic synth back into his sound and a smooth vocal to go along with it. Granted, it’s still trance, but we’ll take it for now.

Breakbot – Devotion feat. Irfane

from The :id: Collective on Oct 1, 2018

It’s always a good day when new music from Breakbot is released. Once again in collaboration with Irfane, we groove with some seriously slapping bass and fulfilling rhythm guitar. We can never get enough of this music. But the real question about this song is this: whose rules are we going to play by? Give this track a listen and we’ll hear who’s devoted to who.

Robert Burian – You Got Me (Me & My Toothbrush Remix Edit)

from The :id: Collective on Oct 1, 2018

You’ve definitely got me. This remix of Robert Burian by Me & My Toothbrush has some serious groove to it. Really well-done production, some really standout claps and taps that give the song some extra dimension and flavor. The middle of the song is an extended breakdown that completely captures your attention and builds into a satisfying resolution.

Adeline – Before

from The :id: Collective on Sep 18, 2018

Adeline really has the groove going on this release, with some really smooth organ backing and a super funky bass line. Her vocals are sultry and pull you in, diving in without hesitation, getting us all worked up for a dance with our lovers in the best way imaginable.

Yuksek – Dance In Disco

from The :id: Collective on Sep 18, 2018

The Razor-N-Tape label is the creme de la creme label for disco edits, so it’s only fitting that they’d engage one of today’s greatest dance and disco producers, Yuksek, to edit an EP full of obscure disco tracks. “Dance In Disco” is one of our favorites off of this project, not just because it premiered at Magnetic Magazine where we post our monthly indie, synth, and disco charts, but because it truly is that good.

Buried in the Snow

from The :id: Collective on Sep 18, 2018

If there was a bunch of light, fluffy snow, and you were a cat, and jumped in it after getting high on catnip, that would be kind of like a catnip cloud, wouldn’t it? I’m most attracted to this song by its bass groove and twinkling, atmospheric marimba. It’s a quick and catchy tune that reminds us that even if you’re high on catnip, you can still evade others who are looking for you.
