With Spring barely coming to life it’s all felt a bit dark and down recently. With this recent cloudiness and from feeling a bit stressed, I’ve been listening to some more laid back and relaxing music. I haven’t listened to much new music over the last week, but after glancing at my SoundCloud likes, I was reminded of Potensia.
Manuel Pfeiffer aka Potensia creates some truly beautiful and well crafted songs. I found his music through having a look a at Tim Toh’s SoundCloud, so fans of Tim Toh’s music might also like this. I don’t know if it’s because I had been listening to a lot of techno and disco recently, but Potensia’s music and specifically Theme for Anne and Only Light definitely gave me back a bit of calm I’d been missing in music.
For me the stand out tracks on his page are his collaborations with Dubios – Fairytales and I Need Darkness. I don’t know much about either Potensia or Dubios but there’s a real sense of style and maturity in the level of production in their songs. Their combination of beats, piano and layered vocals will get me every time. And even if the sun does come out and the warm weather returns, Potensia & Dubios’ music is still going to be perfect for those summer days and nights.
Bonus – Potensia put out a mix a couple of days ago
