There’s no shortage of amazing releases from Filigran Records. The German label is proud to announce the forthcoming Radio Amore‘s Electronica album, entitled as ‘OPIUM POP’. Overall, the twelve tracks have a harmonious sound design. In the same way as the “joy plant”, this ambient material is very addicting. What’s more, with similar effects to opiates, most of these songs will provide a sense of well-being. Such is the case of “Every Breath Is A Gift”, which features laidback piano chords all the way through. Following the same piano-based chill out style is “Quantum & Lotus”, “Opium Pop”, “Choose Your Illusion” and of course, the sexy piece of “Love Theme”, which carries an eargasmic/smooth flow, just ideal to make love to.
Radio Amore also showcases his Kraftwerk obsession with tunes like “Niagara” and “Joie De Vivre”. The latter samples the electronic band’s 1978 classic “The Robots”, pointing out they were a great influence on the producer’s life. Not only this, he also experiments with rockish guitar riffs a la Jimi Hendrix on other numbers on the record. However, the last track, “Spirit” makes a difference, by offering to listeners a spiritual experience with mantra-like vocals. Definitely, my rate for ‘OPIUM POP’ is a solid 10/10. Release date: July 20th, 2018, stay tuned!

Big Gigantic Release New Installment Of Winter Chill Mix Series
It wouldn’t be the holiday season without Big Gigantic’s cozy Winter Chill Mix, which returned in its ninth volume this month, loaded with fantastic music befitting of the most mellow (ideally) time of the year. The first Winter Chill Mix was released in 2014, and not only has it become a fan favorite, but it’s developed a cult following of its own.
This year’s edition weaves in old favorites like Swedish House Mafia, Odesza, Griz, Flume and San Holo alongside new favorites like Fred Again and Nimino resulting in a wildly enjoyable —- long ride through the chilly – and chill – season.
Clearly this festive mix means just as much to Big Gigantic as it does to the fans:
“Very excited to present our 9th installment of the Winter Chill Mix! This mix has some of our favorite songs as of late, from some of our favorite artists that are on the more chill side of things. This mix is perfect for cold winter nights and holiday season vibes. Hope you guys enjoy this one as much as we do!”
Big Gigantic, known for genre-bending production, live instrumentation, and a dedicated relationship to fans, first amplified their hopeful message for the future on Brighter Future in 2016. It reeled in hundreds of millions of streams independently and touted bangers a la “All of Me” [feat. Logic & ROZES], “The Little Things” [feat. Angela McCluskey], “Highly Possible” [feat. Waka Flocka Flame], “Wide Open” [feat. Cherub], and more. Their music would be utilized by everyone from Apple, Wimbledon, NASCAR, NBA, HBO, and Fox to the trailers for Valerian and Dirty Grandpa. They’ve ignited the bills of Coachella, Lollapalooza, ULTRA Music Festival, Hangout Music Festival, Electric Forest, and Bonnaroo. Plus, they headline and consistently sell out their own Rowdytown at Red Rocks Amphitheatre—now in its 11th year for 2022. Putting their words into action, they run the 501(c)3 A Big Gigantic Difference Foundation, which supports non-profits for at-risk youth, music education, and more. Thus far, they have raised $1 million-plus for charity. In the midst of the Global Pandemic, they continued to create, pushing forward towards what would become Brighter Future 2, released in June 2022, stacked with anthems like “Keep on Rising” [feat. Aloe Blacc], “Open Your Mind” [with GRiZ], “Just the Same” [feat. Vic Mensa & Mick Jenkins], and “Free” [feat. Elohim].
In February of 2023 they’re hitting the road for a 20 city tour – tickets can be purchased here.
