Shadi G – Disconnection (Spotify)

Shadi G – Disconnection (Spotify)

The single “Disconnection” looks at a relationship where both people know and are certain that they love each other, but on the surface they really cannot remember the reasons why. The song examines a love where the romantic sparks that initially fires up a relationship, have all but died.

It lays bare those crucial moments when each partner questions whether they are really suited to each other. It characterizes that singular, painful moment when you believe that “Disconnection” from the other, is the only answer.

Few words about Shadi G:
Shadi G is a Swedish songwriter, producer and singer whose soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics is striking the attention of some of Swedens biggest music magazines.

Schooled in classical music, growing up with music all from jazz, RnB, soul, hip hop to her roots in Persian music, Shadi is crossing borders with her own soulful sound, both in style and language.

Straight after high school she went to London to study music production and in 2016 she released her debut single “Lost”, which got her on to some of Swedens biggest music playlists.

In 2017 she started her own record label, Goldamin Records, from which the second single “Where We Go”, was released.

And now, after more than one year waiting, it is finally time for more music from Shadi. “This Love” is the first song to be released from her upcoming EP, which will be the first to be released through her own label.

Suraj Mani Interview on Nagamag.com

Suraj Mani Interview on Nagamag.com

.


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Suraj Mani:
I've always done lyric heavy stuff. Even from my Motherjane days. My solo career showcases the lyricism even more and I think that's where I'm headed. Lyrical, melodic & peppered with surprises.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Suraj Mani:
Well, I started my musical career as the frontman, lyricist, and vocalist of Motherjane. Did some pretty kick-ass stuff with the band. Won national and Asian level accolades. Now, currently; in my second run, my focus is on the words and then the music.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Suraj Mani:
Yup. I discovered the Beatles. And I fell in love with what music did to me. Quickly developed into a passionate listener. Considering that I hadn't learnt music or even read poetry, etc; I accidentally walked into this profession.


Nagamag:
Can you provide an Insight into your latest EP, "Rinse and Repeat"?

Suraj Mani:
I've always told people my stories and the context behind my songs because I believe that's what people connect with. And at the risk of being hurt, I'll do it again. So, be kind to me as I open up and say that Rinse & Repeat is my way of acknowledging that I failed at my marriage and that I am currently going through a divorce. This is me, looking back at love, its painful destruction, and wondering if I have the courage to start afresh in the courtship game. Because though I'd like to, that's an emotional rollercoaster that runs through despair, defiance, love, lust, storms, and deathly silence. Rinse & Repeat, Sacred Ground, La Petite Mort & Samsara, provide a snapshot of love and relationships in a manner that is all too relevant, today. Am I misstepping in sharing my personal struggles? Maybe. Does doing so, hurt others involved? I hope not. Sometimes it's hard to know for sure what is right and what is wrong. All I can ask myself in such a situation is, does my decision make me feel stronger or weaker?... Yes, it makes me feel stronger to share this because I know that there are many others like me. And while it's still hard for most us to overcome the sorrow of failing at love, none of us need the shame. So, if you're anything like me, it doesn't matter who you are or where you are in your journey, I guess what I'm trying to say is this: take the decisions that make you feel strong. You're NOT alone.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Suraj Mani:
Kishore Kumar "Pyar Deewana Hota hain"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Suraj Mani:
Vernon Noronah "Come back Jack"

111 – See You Again (Spotify)

111 – See You Again (Spotify)

Nadja, Singer & Songwriter of 111, wrote 'See you again' for her best friend who passed when she was 18 years old. At that time she had no emotional tools to deal with the overwhelming pain and it almost tore her apart. Because of all the pain, for a long time she wasn't really able to feel the deep, beyond-lifetime connection between him and her. Now she does feel it and from this exact place comes this song!

Few words about 111:

With 111, Nadja and her producer pick up the idea of 'healing music' with its scientifically proven benefits and translating it into a new sound aesthetic for a wider audience: No eso -cliché, but a fresh, organic ambient -electro-sound that gives the listener a feeling of relaxation and warmth. A lot of the songs are presented in 432 hz instead of the usual 440 hz pop-songs are presented in. Studies prove, that this frequency has more relaxing and empowering effects because it matches the natural vibration of the human body. 111 combines instruments from different musical traditions which are known for their touching and relaxing sounds, for example the monochord. The lyrics sometimes embed mantras from different religions which are known for their strengthening and healing effects, and are always positive and empowering.

With their new approach and understanding of ‚healing music‘, 111 brings together artists from all genres and all over the world, who also believe in the positive effects of rhythm, sound and voice! For example, for their song ‚protected‘ Nadja worked together with award-winning L.A.-based producer Robot Koch, with whom she also wrote the newest track 'See you again'. The successful Berlin-based producer-duo 'Dasmo & Mania' didi the production!

The lead song from their newly released EP, “essence of life” was composed to be the original theme for the brand movie of “radiko”, a Japanese web radio. Created while exchanging ideas with the film director, it’s based on the theme of the little pleasures and happiness that we can find in everyday life. Ryo Mizobe’s sweet and clear vocals bring us back to our childhood and its innocence. It’s a pop song that places importance on giving an analog and organic feeling, and the use of real strings in the recording adds a rich and deep color to the song.

Don Diablo – Thousand Faces ft. Andy Grammer | Official Music Video (Video)

DON DIABLO returns with heart-on-sleeve new singl “THOUSAND FACES”
Multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter Andy Grammer lends his epic vocals to the emotional track

LISTEN HERE: https://dondiablo.lnk.to/THOUSANDFACESPR

Dance music superstar Don Diablo continues his prolific start to 2020 with new single ‘Thousand Faces’, a deeply personal record that taps into the heartache attached to losing a parent.

The single is out on Friday 19th June, with the official music video to follow on 21st June. The video was directed and produced by Don Diablo dropping on Father’s Day. It includes exclusive footage he filmed at the age of 13 with his first home video camera. Featuring Multi-Platinum singer-songwriter Andy Grammer, ‘Thousand Faces’ finds the sweet spot between modern dance music and acoustic genius, it’s a track destined to touch the hearts of music lovers worldwide.

Don explains: “Thousand Faces is definitely one of my most personal records that I have written so far. Almost seven years ago I lost the most important man in my life: my father. Since that day my vision on life has changed drastically, not long after that I started achieving all the things I dreamed of most of my life. His passing fuelled me with so much passion and dedication which, looking back on it, gave me an unprecedented amount of energy and drive to work harder than ever to make the most out of my life. During these last years I have often wondered what my Dad would have thought if he could see me now.

“Things got so much bigger than both of us could have even imagined from the last conversations we had.Sometimes when I am performing in front of thousands of fans it feels like I can see him standing in the crowd, nodding his head, giving me his approval. I know my story isn’t unique, eventually we all go through similar experiences, it’s the lessons we learn from these experiences and the way we handle it that sets us apart. I know Andy lost his Mom ten years ago which also made a huge impact on his life, so on top of his incredible vocal talent he felt like the perfect person to tell my story and by doing so, also making it his story and at the end of the day the universal story for all of us.

“Having both lost our parents (his father and my mother) before we reached success, this was a really special song to put out together” Andy adds.

The track follows on from Don Diablo’s March single ‘Bad’, featuring Moroccan-English artist Zak Abel, a floorfilling club smash that has racked up over 20 million hits across Spotify and YouTube in only two months.

One of the most recognisable figures from the world of dance music, Don Diablo recently clocked in at #6 in the coveted DJ Mag ‘Top 100’ list. Recent highlights from his extensive back catalogue include ‘Survive’, a collaborative single with Emeli Sande and Gucci Mane, heartfelt single ‘Brave’ with Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jessie J, as well as high profile remixes for Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, Coldplay, Mark Ronson & Miley Cyrus and more recently Anne-Marie.

Andy Grammer has taken the pop world by storm over the past few years. His fourth full-length album Naive (S-Curve Records/BMG) quickly rose to the #1 pop album the day of its release and features gold-certified single ‘Don’t Give Up On Me’, marking his seventh certified song to date. It was featured in the big screen drama Five Feet Apart and clocked 18 million Spotify streams in three weeks. Over the last few months, Grammer has released several collaborations including ‘I Found You’ with Cash Cash and ‘Best of You’ with Elle King.

Don adds: “I hope this song gives people hope and the strength to turn something very painful into something very positive, deep down inside I feel my dad is watching over me and I will continue to work as hard as I can to make him as proud as I can.”

Dynah – Page blanche (Spotify)

Dynah – Page blanche (Spotify)

DYNAH, a new name, a new pop costume tailored especially for the singer-musician Melody LINHART. Two syllables taken from her actual name in order to make her metamorphosis as smooth as possible and let the magic begin! With these five letters, she becomes a freer version of herself.

Originally from an acoustic background where she played jazz, folk and soul music, Melody Linhart is currently undergoing a new beginning, a blank page – « PAGE BLANCHE » is the title of her first single – and starting a new musical chapter, in French this time, propelled by sometimes minimalist electro pop music. Her style lies at the meeting-point between Clara Luciani and James Blake.

Throughout her collaborations, from Paris to London, through Spain and the Netherlands, Dynah has been adopting a new, more efficient, more strait forward, way of writing. She seeks simplicity: “Songs have to come self-evidently.” Melody Linhart has been refining her touch. Her trademarks are: describing a scene in a song as precisely as if it were a movie, composing as if she were weaving an outfit for a character, including unexpected words in her lyrics such as “chrysalis”, or “koala”, hidden poetry.

In this new playground, Dynah is exhilarated and liberating herself: “Pop music is a good excuse to talk about love and sensuality.” Here, a few notes of synth reveal a woman feeling blue. There, desire springs out through programmed beats. Weaknesses, dreams, pleasure, motherhood, Dynah explores pop as she does her life, confronting her lyrics to electronic sounds.

Added to this vindicated sensitivity, are the fantastic meetings with French and international producers such as: Nicolas Gueguen, Martin Chourrout, Guillaume Martial or Lionnel Buzac, all of whom collaborated to this first EP: DYNAH (Finalistes/Musigamy).

Electro music gives her impulse, the stage will give her wings.

Dax – BLACK LIVES MATTER (Official Music Video)

Remember when we were kids and didn’t see color? A song meant to bring everyone together during these tough times of racial tension.

Lyrics:
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
ay ya
I can’t breathe

This a (r)evolution (i)n (o)ur (t)ime everybody’s fighting
change coming, YES!
that’s why it’s an acronym for riot
Everybody has a voice don’t you dare stay silent
if you say nothing you are an accessory to violence
let these words dry the tears of my people who are crying we can bring back hope but not people that are dying
This is what happens when the people you’ve oppressed ask for change in a country that they built but you ignored and deny it
This for Sandra Bland, George Floyd, and every single family police brutality has intervened in and destroyed
couple bad cop couple can’t define all you other boys so every good COP needs to stand up and make noise
Black, white, asain doesn’t matter cause we can’t avoid so let’s all come together join hands and yes get annoyed at people who believe racism makes sense in a country built off minority slave work employed
see nobodies born racist man it’s something you learn
Deep rooted in your brain from the day of your birth
I think it’s time that we repair All of the bridges we’ve burned
And let love out of our hearts onto cheeks we turn
Spread love, show love, lets get rid of this curse,
Don’t wait for anyone to act man you go first
400 years wasted let’s get rid of this hurt cause that’s the only way we’ll ever see peace on earth

I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I, I
I can’t breathe

Change is what we need
Cut me open, cut you open Red’s the color every single human beings bleeds,
Let’s come together cops citizens and in between and rally for the rights of everybody in humanity
Black, blue, white, green,
Playing for the seam the team
I’m not MLK but boy that doesn’t mean I Can’t dream
Black lives matter shouldn’t anger you or make you scream all lives matter cause we aren’t treated equally
Remember when we were kids and didn’t see no color and when we played in kindergarten and I called you my brother
Then we grew up and they taught us we should hate on each other even though
We one in the same and we all came from our mothers
I hope y’all understand
Hate is not a trait it was learned man
Equality is the quality we need inside this earth man
Give and receive it’s the karma that you earn man

I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I, I
I can’t breathe

I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I, I
I can’t breathe
