🎶 Music I Recommend
Collection of my favourite songs and artists
There's a chance you're here after a discussion we've had about music. I've decided to write a collection of artists/songs I particularly like. I will try to keep this updated, and feel free to share any of your music with me!
Note: I listen to a lot of music weekly, and am struggling a bit to keep this list updated as I keep discovering new cool artists. Consider this as "Some Music I Recommended in 2021" ;)
Most listened genres
Like a lot of people, I like to listen to a large variety of styles from classical music to tecno. There are however two styles I listen to the most: jazz (especially contemporary jazz) and electronic music (such as future bass).
Most listened artists
Here are the artists I listen to and most recommend. The list is not ordered precisely, but I do keep the artists I like the most on top:
I usually do not like artists who keep making songs in the same style but I definitely have to make an exception for Anomalie. His style of music (Jazztronica) is so unique and fascinating.
Armenian pianist with his own very unique variety of styles. His may sound unusual to an occidental ear.
- Drip (Berklee Middle Eastern Fusion Ensemble Studio Recording), which is by far one of my favourite songs
- The Poet, from the album Shadow Theater
Third pianist in a row in this list, Jesus Molina is undoubtably the most skilled in the list. His technique is over the top and he his highly influenced by Oscar Peterson.
- Departing, in the album by the same name
- Keyscape Sessions - JESÚS MOLINA & EMILY BEAR
- Justin-Lee Schultz and Jesus Molina Jamming at the Namm Show 2020 these last two sessions are truly mindblowing and will make any pianist shortly depressed.
Avishai Cohen is an amazing jazz bass player. His trio plays with a lot of different time signatures and polyrithms.
- Pinzin Kinzin, from one of my favourite albums, Gently Disturbed (try to guess the time signature of the song)
- Two Roses
Domi & JD beck
These two are... weird... As of when I'm writing this they haven't released an album yet but have shown their incredible skills on Youtube videos and events.
Jacob Collier is now fairly known. He is a very talented instrumentalist, exploring a whole bunch of different genres with some crazy music theory behind. Truly a musical genious. I don't quite like his new stuff (more pop) as much as his old.
Yet another jazz pianist... Hiromi is a Japanese pianist who truly puts her emotions in the music she plays.
The most known contemporary jazz group. I don't really listen to them anymore as their style is pretty repetitive but contains a lot of very unique aspects that influenced a lot of other modern jazz artists.
