I skipped NYE's parties in Berlin, they are overpriced and too crowded. And anyhows you have all the other 364 days to go to nice techno parties which are bit more decently priced! Meanwhile I have found some cool new songs and this post will be again mix of everything (nice!). So bare with me and I hope you like these songs!
I seem to have taught my Spotify pretty well because in the past time I've found quite some cool songs via it. This one is also from my Spotify recommendations. The artist is BeGun and the song is called "Nari" it's a chill and nice afternoon song.
According to SoundCloud Begun comes from Spain. He has released an album called "Amma" on 2016, in a quick browse trough the album sounds pretty cool. Relaxed music with some African vibes. Totally recommend it if you like a mix of electronic and African music.
You can also check the video story of the album Amma on Begun's homepage:
The next artist comes from....Finland!! Even though crazily enough her music hasn't been played yet that much in Finland. I'm talking now about the most awesome Alma ! She's a young artist who has kinda hit trough already, but we are still waiting for a longer album from her. She released "Dye my hair" -album in 2016. If you have heard some songs from her it must be either "Karma" or the song from Felix Jaehn "Bonfire ft. Alma". I still personally don't get why she is not that popular in Finland, because she has really a phenomenal voice! But as so often bigger artists who sing in English are either talked over to change their "singing language" into Finnish or otherwise they can create careers abroad, which is totally ridiculous. This must change!
Here the kick ass songs from Alma! And those superrr beats! Pa pa pa paaa!
Alma - "Karma"
And the already 7 million views gathered song... "I'm the bonfire, you make me stronger...."
Felix Jaehn - "Bonfire ft. Alma"
Okay, still one more...a great video too!
Alma - "Dye my hair"
We will for sure hear more from this fantastically talented young artist!
The next artist come from Spain.. Marcos Cruz I know only this song from him, but it's a nice one!
Marcos Cruz - "Esencia"

The next one is from a tv series "Stranger things", it's a sci-fi series which is pretty great! "Stranger things" got lot of praise from its soundtrack which is done by a group called Survive from USA, Texas, Austin. If you like synth music, you should definitely check the sound track. It's ridiculous how catchy the main theme is, I think I could watch this 10 minute version of it in one sit:
Survive - "Stranger things - Theme song"
And another favorite from the soundtrack:
Survive - Stranger Things - "Lay-Z-Boy"
Check also these ones from the soundtrack: "Fresh blood" and "Lamps" .
Here's an article from The Rolling stones about the group: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/stranger-things-survive-talk-their-creepy-nostalgic-score-w431789
