Corner Of The Universe by Zach Bailey

Hi Zach,

Thank you so much for your submission.

This is lovely...In every way possible.

I love your voice...It's so soothing...I love your tone, cadence, rhythm...phrasing...All sounds really smooth. The lyrics are beautiful.

The instrumentation is simple, yet effective. You really don't need another sound. The way it builds is just perfect...And when the violins come in......Aaaaaah! Yes!

Zach this is great! I need this MP3...Please send over ASAP!

Thank you!

Hi Jordie,
Thank you so much for your submission...

These images are breathtaking....Your soundtrack definitely does justice to these extraordinary images...
I can hear this in a TV ad for so many products...
Also, movies...TV shows...This is sort of the perfect soundtrack...
Love this!
Who did the video editing and where did you get these shots?

Thank you!

Hi Munnycat,

Thank you so much for your submission!

I love this track! 

It's sort of the perfect indie-dance track...If !!! and LCD and Scissor Sisters and M83 were all thrown in a blender you may get something that sounds like this...haha

Will totally pass along to other DJs that I think may like it. Can I please have this in a 320 MP3 format?

Thank you!

In My Shoes (official) by Henry Alexander

Valida Carroll

Hey Henry...
Thanks so much for your submission..

Who are you? And why have I never heard of you before?

Everything about this is straight up FIRE!

Love your video...Love that you look at the camera and are making a piercing connection to your audience. (Gave me chills...)
The beat is infectious...Your vox on point and super catchy without sounding pop. Reminds me of early 90s Brit pop...which is some of my favorite music. But also, heavy Stones/Beatles influence....Really great stuff.

My favorite part is when everything drops and you say "you wanna be careful that way" SOOOO GOOD!

I need this MP3....Like NOW. I want to play it and share with other DJs...Please send.

Absolutely FLOORED. Thank you!

ps. you're not wearing shoes and talking 'bout "in my shoes" lol
ps. where are you based out of?

Trouble Maker by Henry Alexander

Valida Carroll

Hi Henry,
Thanks so much for your submission.

This rocks. In every way. The track is bumping, the art-direction is on point...and I have a feeling that hearing this song live would knock my (and everyone's else inside the room) socks off.

Great job!

Definitely sharing and would love an MP3 if you could please forward.
