In creating their debut album, Duwendé set out to make a body work from the perspective of a night out complete with friends, drinks and good vibes. A challenge was presented to the band to make a Hip-Hop drenched track from a different perspective. That led the band to the inception of their third single from the upcoming album, ‘Fantastic’.

With a sound described as a 'grown and sexy Pentatonix', the NYC-based sextet doubles down on “their fiercely original, bass-and-beatbox-driven style of music” with their latest release.

Dance Yourself Clean x Michael Medrano – Sugar (Spotify)

Since 2013 Dance Yourself Clean had spent nearly every single weekend throwing parties across North America. With the pandemic the boys have turned their entire focus onto the party's transformation into a juggernaut music project. In the first full year since the project was created, 2020 brought in over 2.3 million streams on Spotify alone. With their new single "Sugar" set to release on NYE at 12am EST it looks like they're setting the scene for what may be a massive year of releases and collaborations. DYC had this to say about "Sugar", "Normally we'd be spending NYE with our friends and DYC family somewhere... Maybe Los Angeles at Teragram Ballroom or NYC at Baby's All Right. It kills us that we won't be able to be together this year celebrating. Setting "Sugar's" release date for midnight on the east coast and 9pm on the west coast is our way of being together with our DYC family across the nation. It may seem silly, but it means something to us and hopefully them too."

Reptile Room – Shadows (visual) (Video)

“Electro Pop trio Reptile Room have released their new single – Shadows. The combination of a catchy timbre and languid, leading vocals creates an amazing visualization in the minds of listeners.”

“Electro Pop трио Reptile Room выпустили свой новый сингл – Shadows. Сочетание запоминающегося тембра и томного, лидирующего вокала рисует в сознании слушателей удивительную визуализацию.”

We are in a time when everything is uncertain, and that uncertainty can be felt by every human on earth. The way things “use to be” are far behind us, and there is no telling what the future will bring. This environment has made for the perfect storm of inspiration for many artists, including Reptile Room. In their newest single, “Shadows”, the group laments about the not so subtle changes in their emotional climate. Questioning everything and sure about almost nothing, the track speaks directly to how we cope with changes we didn’t ask for, and circumstances we don’t know how to navigate. “We miss our family, friends, familiarity, but all anyone can do is take this new version of life, one day at a time, and make the best of it. All the world has been brought to the forefront of consciousness, and we are unable to continue running from thoughts or things that we could easily avoid before this shift occurred. Now we are all stuck in a new realm where if we don’t level up and rise above, we will continue to suffer.” The trio discusses the reality of past actions leading us slowly in our present, almost without our knowing until it’s too late. “We have to face the music…and this is what it sounds like.” The chorus really says it all – no matter what path you’ve taken till now, we are all in the same boat together. “This is how we live now. This is how it feels now.” The only question that remains is, are you happy?”

Reptile Room is an electro-pop trio formed in Atlanta in 2017 by Bill Zimmerman and brother and sister Sean and Sami Michelsen. Their first few independent releases gained local support in Creative Loafing’s “25 Atlanta Summer Jams” and Live Nation’s “Atlanta Culture Award” along with sync placements with MTV, E!, BET, and Red Bull.

In 2019, RR released their debut album ‘Jade’ on Om Records and gained support and premieres from Consequence of Sound, Uproxx, Atwood Magazine, New Noise Magazine, glamglare, Medium Magazine, and beyond. Tracks from Jade have been added to official tastemaker playlists on Amazon Music, Google Play, and YouTube Music and featured by prominent DJ Kaskade on his Kaskade Konnect playlist on Spotify.

Following the album, RR joined forces with Spinnin’ Records / Maxximize Records for a collaboration with producer/DJ ASCO. The collaboration, ‘We Come Alive,’ gathered quick streaming momentum and has been played by DJs such as Tiesto, Afrojack, Nicky Romero, and others.

The three members still do all creative work collectively, be it writing, recording and mixing, or editing photos, shooting videos and designing art. Reptile Room is currently hard at work on new projects and looks forward to seeing you on a future tour.
