Listen now: Buro 24/7 Middle East's Weekend Playlist
As the weekend creeps up on us once again, Buro 24/7 Middle East has chosen a variety of smooth and relaxing tunes that will keep you in a beautiful mood for the days ahead...
A new musical group called Oh Wonder starts our playlist off this week, hailing from London the boy/girl duo have just unveiled its third release, Dazzle, featuring a minimal electronic base and unique lyricism in every smooth-flowing chorus and verse. Then, coming in at number two is a Sailors remix of Ed Sheeran's beautiful balled Thinking Out Loud – which has already spent 19 weeks in the UK Top 40 chart. Sheeran is then closely followed by Brooklyn musician Theophilus London, with his killer track from his latest album Vibes called Can't Stop, featuring a rapid rap verse from none other than Kanye West. Number four on the playlist takes us back to England with a Lido remix of Alt-J's catchy song Left Hands Free that exudes a 90s electronic/ RnB vibe.
Australian music label Future Classic – who's responsible for Flume, Panama and more – has unveiled its next star attraction, and they go by the name of Seekae. And, for the three-man collective, their latest track The Stars Below features reminiscent dreamy tones of Chet Faker infused with the trio's deep vocals. We then stay in the land down under for our sixth song with Jack Vanzet, aka Thrupence, and his jazz-inspired electronic beat Don't You Mind.
An Elkoe remix of Bon Iver's song heart-felt song Towers brings in acoustic sounds with some guitar and drum-playing for number eight, while Veritas by British band Oceaan, closes off our playlist with a blaring rush of electronic beats and gripping vocals.
