    When I heard that sample at the start, I was like: 'yes, this is going to be good', then I heard those deep kick drums! Then I heard her lovely / powerful voice…

    Breathtakingly powerful vocal performance with impressive lyrics, it's the: 'As long I’m without you.' line; woven with the balanced / well-arranged production.

    ──────────────────────

    There's something really special about her voice ― the soft parts are nice and skilfully made [00:37]. The electronic production at [02:11] adds that extra layer.

    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    That synthesizer at the start, with those highly additive chord stabs; those deep kick drums with that thick wall of sound; that repeated / psychedelic vocal sample: 'love'; looped hi-hats ― it's definitely acid.

    ──────────────────────

    The perfect rave track [03:33]. Played in a high-priced nightclub, post-midnight, flashing coloured lights, in a crowded space - yes, this track definitely sums up nightlife.

    ──────────────────────
  7. sin título (???) (ft. carolina devöt)
    by Dstrcv
    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    The vocals are quite hypnotising, by not being in English - they've a certain mystery / almost puzzling quality ― I wish Carolina Devöt (at the start) had more verses.

    ──────────────────────

    This track artwork adds character and individuality; which is fitting due to how characteristic this track is. Every track should have its own respective artwork.

    ──────────────────────
  8. amen
    by ∆AIMON
    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    Dark and moody: a defining standard of witch house; you can't disagree that the amplified nature is what makes it evidently unique / so powerful -- yet it still sounds quite well balanced.

    ──────────────────────

    03:21 goes beyond the border of thrilling ― this is played in the darkest corners of an underground nightclub, with theatrical smoke and fog everywhere.

    Sumie's voice diverges from others by having pace. | 02:00 | At times, the vocals drift [reverberate]. The artwork features an array of clouds ― conceivably angelic.

    00:00/00:00

    by Wafia
    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    Her voice is so gentle / tranquil - this track is a modest change from the electronic production: proving that she doesn't need to hide behind masquerading production.

    ──────────────────────

    The way their voices merge is very artful, to highlight a line at 04:05; 'But I can’t lose you' ― it's quite poignant [evoking a keen sense of sadness or regret].

    ──────────────────────
  22. Lost
    by Ariela Jacobs
    00:00/00:00

  25. Untangle My Heart
    by Mary Van Liew
    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    Her voice is so soft, yet so striking at the same time: it's quite authoritative and with the addition of the notes from the piano, it works as a powerful ballad. I listen to this while running to the gym.

    ──────────────────────

    The way she says: 'I’m ripping out the stitches that hold me to you' is rare / eccentric - yet haunting; 02:01 could be classed as: "ne plus ultra" ― it's a high point.

    The: 'I need to learn, to be alone.' line, is beautiful and raw; I like the way the track organically builds / breaks down - it's rare to find a track that's this alluring.

    ──────────────────────
  27. Unsafe
    by Isabel Twongyeirwe ft. LAGUM
    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    From those soulful sounds [00:14] to the kick drums sounding like heartbeats [01:26] - to the slow introduction building to the climax [02:14], to the emotional and clever feature at the end [03:18].

    ──────────────────────

    Her performance at 02:22 - 03:18 is so touching / heart-rending [causing great sadness] ― with his feature being quite melancholy, this track oozes soul and conviction.

    ──────────────────────

    00:00/00:00
    Vini Vini
    ──────────────────────

    Awe-inspiring vocal swells mixed impeccably with faint notes: this completely defines and gives the best example - of the choir genre; astonishingly delicate and polished.

    ──────────────────────

    Its grace is incomparable / unmatched to any other of its kind ― it makes you encounter emotions due to its primarily female, and primarily lyric-less vocals.

    I find this relaxing: its understated nature is why I like this album ― by only having a few instruments, it has balance; allowing you to focus on the lyrics / voice.

    ──────────────────────

    by Michael McCann

    ──────────────────────

    With pounding kick drums, that squelching sound from a synthesizer and that dreamlike vocal FX; this track is neatly arranged, confidently produced / skilfully mastered.

    ──────────────────────

    ──────────────────────
  34. 145 (Original Mix)
    by Coeter
    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    With those fast-paced / hammering kick drums with looped hi-hats, and those narcotic chord stabs from that fixating synthesizer - this is quite repetitive / minimal, and clearly underground.

    ──────────────────────

    03:07 | the kick drums at this point are quite heavy ― then those notes casually increase in volume - this track is best played loud, in a dark, secret rave (obviously at midnight).

    ──────────────────────
  35. Paris
    by M.O.O.N.
    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    The iconic waving bassline, side-chained kick drums, occurring reverbed claps - woven with the percussion at 00:53, creates that powerful, timeless, and hypnotic nightclub / underground sound.

  36. Black
    by The Soft Moon
    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    Dark as ink; dramatic as flashing monochromatic nightclub lights: with complex / elaborate layers, hoarse vocals, and that blaring FX - this track is clearly well produced and obviously incisive.

    ──────────────────────

    Proverbially, it's a vehicle accelerating at a rapid rate; but literally, it's an atypical build-up ― with arousing visuals, this would be an unforgettable experience.

    ──────────────────────
  37. Flame (feat. Dana Jean Phoenix)
    by Powernerd
    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    A feel-good track. With those cogent vocals, catchy lyrics, colourful guitar riffs, and mellow drums ― it correctly captures the 80's vibe, and for that it triumphs.

    ──────────────────────

    02:50 | this vocal part is great - I like the part before with the repeated / exciting lyric ‘burn’ - this track is a showpiece, the vocal really outshines itself.

    ──────────────────────

    00:00/00:00

    ──────────────────────

    Her crowning achievement, so far ― obviously, the full version is better with more content. 03:16 | 'Now I came up, you looking kind of average.' is a highlight for me.

    ──────────────────────
  40. MEDALIN
    by Lana Taylor feat. King Chip
    00:00/00:00
    ──────────────────────

    This track is easy to relax to; the production is well textured; her smooth vocal performance at 00:55 - plus those lyrics sets the right mood ― King Chip's feature is well placed / arranged.

    ──────────────────────

    You can trust North Americans to create near perfect R&B; I like the line: 'I live on a pedestal' - it sounds meaningful, she sounds well connected to the lyrics.

    1. Propane on .30 (Let It Spin)

    The 60 sample; the short pause - then the: thundering production / confident vocals / outrageous lyrics [bold, unusual and rather shocking] - purposely scandalous; I like that.



    2. Take Out The Trash

    The production at 00:41.



    3. I Don't Like Your Shit

    The way he says the f word. Those kick drums at the end ― I wish there was more like that - in the middle.

    by JOSHUA BEAL
    00:00/00:00
    0⁄1 0⁄1
    ──────────────────────

    Booming 808 kick drums, adding richness, depth / warmth; wall of sounds acting like a hard, [horizontal] line; powerhouse / dancefloor chord stabs; a latticework of dark / moody synthesizers; sampled / edited vocals.


    Production with vocals is equally important; the production is a platform: while the vocalist adds soul. Respectively, each track has its own vocalist.

    ──────────────────────

    112 BPM = 8 bars = 15 s = 1×12 = 03:00 == perfectionist.
