I get so pumped whenever I see a new release from Toronto-based producer OBESØN in my channels. He is yet to drop a track that I have not fallen in love with. Mon Amour is an upbeat yet silky smooth song decorated with delicate female vocals. That steady kick really gives you a beat to vibe to. OBESØN’s description of the song leaves a lot to mystery: It’s a long story. Cover artwork of a half-naked beauty might have been the inspiration. Cop the free download and decipher it for yourself.
I love the Toronto sound, and OBESØN is a perfect example of what the cold Canadian city brings to the music scene. Of course you’ve heard the original track Upper Echelon off Travis’s debut XXL Freshman mixtape Owl Pharaoh, but I can say with confidence that you’ve never heard it sound this good. OBESON’s ominous and lead-footed production adds a new dimension to the track, convoluted instruments contrasting against the original acapella, while timely chimes and high-hats keep the track progressing. The only aspect I didn’t like about this remix is that it only included one verse, making it out to be a short 3 minutes remix that leaves you yearning for more. Don’t worry though, OBESØN has plenty of free tracks in his repertoire that you can listen to off his soundcloud, but if you’re feeling like showing love be sure to follow him on twitter and throw him a like on facebook.

Just got hit with ultimate tranced-out ambience after listening to Toronto-based producer OBESØN’s newest track Hazy. When you’re coming down around 3am, this is the song you want to get lost to. Hazy starts out slow with subtle melodies and airy vocals. Then when you hear the breakdown at 1:32, you’ll be forever swimming in good vibes. OBESØN says it best: “Experience next-level, sonic bliss. Embrace your inner illumination and press play.” Cop the free download so you can hop on this smooth ride and show our dude some love on Twitter & Facebook.
