Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
It's Your Life - The Spacesuit Junkies
I don't seem to talk about EDM as much as I used to (which is strange, considering I'm coming at this from my DJ days), but I do want to try and include some when I can, like this "urban house" duo working out of Atlanta, with their song "It's Your Life" off of their EP Luv & Bass.
Check out the song below:
The term "urban house" is a good call, as The Spacesuit Junkies are taking elements from R&B/Hip-hop (the lyrics and vocal style specifically), and melding them with more of a pop-house EDM feel. In "It's Your Life" these elements blend together into a really good, chill track that feels like it would both work in a club (as a slower song), or just hanging out. I think this is one of those songs that shines thanks to it's versatility for a set--I know (if I were still spinning) this would definitely make it's way into my rotation.
"It's Your Life" is one of those songs that I seem to like talking to you about, that just makes me feel mellow, and happy...
You may recognize "Buzzin'" by The Spacesuit Junkies (also off of Luv & Bass), as it has been getting legs in the indie house community, and stretching a bit beyond...honestly though, if you like "It's Your Life", check out Luv & Bass for more of the Junkies' "urban house" as they maintain a good vibe throughout.
The DSD Playlist - Apr 17 is now available! We are sadly missing one song from the last month (again), but I'm pretty happy with how this one all came together!
