Electronic pop artist Rijell releases the romantic ‘Mesmerized’

Canadian electronic pop artist Rijell has released his latest single titled ‘Mesmerized’ via Aureon Records. Rijell tells us about his new single, "In the midst of a romance, two people are experiencing unique vibes together. And by realizing how real and sincere it could be, a confession is taking place between both of them."

The young DJ considers himself a ‘DIY artist’, as he produces, writes, and sings all of his music. Rijell has worked with world-acclaimed acts including 3LAU, Starkillers, Domeno, and UNEK, Rijell. 3LAU has been showing support for Rijell in the past three years, by playing the ‘Is It Love’ remix that Rijell had a lot of creative input on into his live sets. Rijell has also performed at successful dance music festivals including Ile Soniq Festival (The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Zedd, Skrillex), Villa Paradizo Festival (Sander Van Doorn, Thomas Gold, FTampa) and New City Gas With 3LAU (Justin Caruso and Prince Fox). He cites the work of Bei Maejor (Maejor Ali), Rock City, and Iyaz as highly influential to his sound.

It feels like Rijell is having an endorphin rush in his new single, with its uptempo soundscape along with Rijell’s sincere soothing vocals, and confession of love in the lyrics.

Music producer Odd Mob releases new song 'Wide Open'

Binding ambient soundscapes with the melodic house and techno grooves, Brisbane artist Odd Mob releases his dynamic new single ‘Wide Open’ on Tinted Records. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Flume and Kaytranda, the new record highlights the producer’s knack for intertwining hypnotising synth sounds with a pulsating, club-ready bassline while seamlessly blending in soulful vocals, adding a level of sophistication to the record.

Odd Mob discusses his love for contrasting chill electronic music with a bouncy bassline, “‘Wide Open’ was a really fun track to make. Similar to ‘Bad Moon’ it was nice to have such a soulful vocal performance to juxtapose with the heavier bassline.”

Cementing himself as an innovative producer, Odd Mob has released a consecutive run of club favourites over the years. Following the release of the ‘Diffusion’ EP featuring the stand-out record ‘Lithium’, earning the producer over 3.5 million streams, Odd Mob has gone onto craft a style and sound that is so uniquely his own. Compounding this with the release of ‘Intrinsic’, Odd Mob brought together distorted vocals and diverse futuristic house beats, winning him fans all across the globe, and a dedicated cult following out of the US. Off the back of the success of 'Intrinsic', Odd Mob embarked on his debut tour of North America in 2019, playing iconic venues such as the Sound in Los Angeles and Schimanski in New York. With the high demand for the Odd Mob’s energetic club shows, he returned to the US for a second tour in 2020. Continuing to release an array of singles, Odd Mob’s track ‘Gassed Up’ became a festival anthem across the US, played to crowds at Coachella, EDC Las Vegas and Holy Ship after it caught the attention of industry heavyweights, JAUZ and DJ Snake.

Russian electronic artist Ka Fu collaborates with pianist Saughtons

Electronic artist Ka Fu Dances to his own tune again, with his song ‘Beautiful Noize’ featuring pianist Saughtons. The single will feature on his new album. Russian artist  Ka Fu throws genre constraints away, as he believes that it clouds his creativity, and also because of the fact that he does not see himself as a musician at all. Drum Thud says, “Ka Fu continues to amaze his audience with his creativity in his latest release.”

Ka Fu talks about ‘Beautiful Noize’, “You will be surprised but this is my collab with the piano player Saughtons however there is no piano in that song. Everything was transferred from the piano notes to the synth sounds and that’s how Beautiful Noize was born. Means we don’t even know how like we were playing in our favourite sandbox with a certain mood to experiment and create something fresh and interesting.”

Amidst the free form of creativity, Ka Fu and Saughtons manage to deliver a  sound reminiscent of 90’s electronic character to the song.

BIRTHDAY CARD release new all-out pop song 'Radio Star'

Building on the momentum of their 2019 debut, Aylesbury based quintet BIRTHDAY CARD today release their brand new, all-out pop single, ‘Radio Star’.

Written and recorded in a matter of weeks, ‘Radio Star’ was recorded and produced by Marcus Yates at Milk Man Studios just one day before the UK went into full lockdown.

The track effortlessly highlights the band’s ability to create unique, genre-blending pop; a hybrid sound that takes as many notes from French New Wave specialists Daft Punk and The Supermen Lovers as it does more urban influences like Kanye West and The Streets - while also giving a nod towards modern indie from the likes of The 1975 and MGMT.

DJ and producer Coldabank releases new song 'Afterlife'

Bristol-born DJ and producer Coldabank has unveiled the ‘Chilled Mix’ of his latest single ‘Afterlife’, out 8th May.

The ‘Chilled Mix’ of ‘Afterlife’ does exactly what it says on the tin: a pitched-down, smoother version that loses none of the infectious energy of the original. It follows the bumping house remix of the track that was recently dropped by Glasgow duo Illyus & Barrientos, while the original received support from the likes of Kiss FM and BBC Radio 1, where it was named Mistajam’s ‘Self Certified Selection’.

Now living in London, Coldabank’s varied career has seen him engineer for Tinie Tempah, DJ with Labrinth, remix for Rudimental and release a number of his own tracks and remixes. ‘Lovin’ You’, his most successful hit to date, has clocked up over 10 million streams since its 2017 release.

A calmer take on the original, the ‘Chilled Mix’ of ‘Afterlife’ is equal parts relaxing and inspiring.

Musician Drew Davies video premieres via Wonderland. Magazine

South Yorkshire rock soloist Drew Davies has released his video for single ‘X and Y’, which premiered via Wonderland, Magazine. So far, Davies has featured in publications like Clash Magazine, Atwood Magazine, Music Week, Music News, and Pure Grain Audio. Davies sound can be compared to the likes of  Sam Fender, Future Islands, David Bowie,  and The War On Drugs.

The soloist has spent the past ten years behind the scenes in the music world, writing music for other artists as well as singing at open mic nights to make ends meet. Drew Davies shares, "The video for X and Y acts as a waypoint in time, given that the lockdown was announced hours after we finished shooting. There was a strange atmosphere in the air and London was pretty much like a ghost town; I think because of this and the work of Henry Croston (Director) the video acts as a time capsule for what's been a very unusual period in our lives."

The video provides an eerie atmosphere with open yet empty restaurants close to being devoid of patrons. Davies warm vocals soften the unease of the unsettling imagery.

He was soon scouted as a model and has worked for the likes of Vogue, GQ, Nike, Reebok and others, while continuing to develop his sound. His broad musical ability has allowed him to write and produce with a wide range of artists and producers, including Grades, Sheppard, CamelPhat, Walking on Cars, Alpines and Maverick Sabre.
