Niko Schwind and Felix Raphael did it again: After ‘Circles’ there was another collaboration. Is ‘Planets‘ a birthday song for their label ‘Stil vor Talent‘?
Niko Schwind & Felix Raphael – ‘Planets’ Review
Whether as a gift, homage or just a musical piece of the anniversary compilation: The track ‘Planets‘ is brilliant and one of the highlights of the two parts of ‘15 Years Style before Talent‘. Niko and Felix are a musical phenomenon. Both are great producers and have their own musical signature. When they collaborate, the tracks instantly sound like produced by a longstanding team. That was the case with ‘Circles‘ and is now the same with ‘Planets’. Both tracks could be from the same release. Wonderful harmonies, a complex yet airy arrangement and last but not least an intimate but also eternal sound: ‘Planets‘ sounds like the logical follow-up to ‘Circles‘.
I am very proud and grateful that Niko has taken over the ‘Melodic Beats‘ playlist this week. That’s a instrumentals-only playlist, so ‘Planets’ is not part of his takeover tracklist. Therefore I can only recommend the ‘Melodic Beats’ AND the playlist on which you can hear ‘Planets’:
