Here at SwanoDown, we listen to a ton of music on a DAILY basis. And during these days, of course, there are standout tracks. Below you'll find the 10 compositions we feel you should check out tonight, (or soon). We find these artists to be the most cutting-edge. And oh yeah, this is in no particular order... You decide!
Compositionally elevated songs by artists such as Ari Abdul, FERBY, and Refs, are all featured today.

B. Miles – One Trick Pony

‘One Trick Pony’ is a beautiful track with excellent production and an incredible vocal performance from B. Miles. This song brings an alluring atmosphere that feels as if it’s transporting you to an entirely different area.The smooth transitions within this track keep that feeling constant throughout and makes this one a very euphoric listen.

Ari Abdul– HUSH

Ari Abdul’s style often includes tracks that sound larger than life. 'HUSH' is a great example of Abdul’s sound. The song sets a grand stage with exceedingly spacious production that builds up beautifully into a very catchy chorus.

Hedvig Mollestad Trio
– “On the Horizon, Part 2”

This composition was a genuine ride throughout. ‘On the Horizon, Part 2’ is both beautifully written and beautifully recorded. There are so many intricate details and features to latch onto in this piece that it took me a few good spins just to soak everything in. The performances of every featured instrument were all spectacular and blended incredibly well for the entire track.

Mothh- Over You

‘Over You’ is an emotional track that highlights growth and development after a breakup. Musically, the track is very thematic, coupled with production that really brings the story forward and blissful harmonies within the vocals. Mothh identifies her development from needing this person, to feeling free from that necessity, with a heartfelt chorus indicating her own personal success in not knowing her own strength.

Krysis Mikhaal– The Sesh

Krysis Mikhaal gives us a very solid track here. His flow, personality, and lyricism on this track are all excellent, with a high mark for storytelling as well. The instrumental suits his style almost perfectly, making for a very enjoyable track.

LOVETA x Wulfie– Nostalgia

‘Nostalgia’ is an excellently produced track. The energy and sound selection are absolutely top tier, and the vocal performance is solid as well. The song also closes with a guitar solo, which being a guitarist myself, made me a bit jealous of the superb guitar tone.

Tilla– Expensive Metals

‘Expensive Metals’ is a very calming track. Tilla brings a soothing and almost ethereal vocal performance that sets a chill tone for the song. The instrumentation here also lends phenomenally well to Tilla’s swelling background harmonies.

Refs- Every Other Night

The production on this track is some of the most unique I’ve heard in quite some time. The percussive elements sound like they were designed from analog drum machines, all accompanied with a side-chained low octave bass synth. The vocals are equally as unique, spanning different layers of design and effects. The bridge is my favorite part of this track, completely switching the synths and adding some very pleasant harmonies to the mix.


FERBY’s personality on this track is incredibly charismatic. In some respects, I’m reminded of acts such as Ashniko, in the way that her flow and energy levels are completely apparent. The instrumental helps drive this very well. The lyrics are also incredibly catchy and, to put it simply, ‘PUSSYLOVEMONEY’ is a banger.

Frazier Blue-– Sometimes

‘Sometimes’ is led with a very gentle vocal performance by Frazier Blue. Frazier’s vocals on this track combined with tranquil piano chords and percussion make this a very soothing piece, perfect for anyone’s “chill” playlist.
