George Ko – Thinking of Bach

“A very short but truly tasteful nod to Bach’s legacy that will probably have any mélomane with a soft spot for late Baroque period and a perfected counterpoint yearning for more.”

KARDO – GROOVE

“Based on a main guitar pattern, oldschool kick and distorted vocals, this single from "KARDO" can stick out in its category. The lyrics reveal a rebelious mood with a taste of lurking madness among the most raw emotions. An undoubtedly straight and sencere production.”

-Nagamag.com

Artist said about this song:

"My debut single “GROOVE” takes you through my mind during a psychedelic trip, where I realize I have been held back by society’s lack of acceptance. My eagerness to break through society’s “chains” causes my reality to become skewed and in turn, makes me paranoid.

“GROOVE” has elements of indie as well as pop and hip hop music. The eerie acoustic guitar consistently played throughout, paired with infectious hard hitting 808s & low-cut distorted vocals makes for a combination that generates feelings of nostalgia but also makes you want to run into a wall. "

Courtney Cotter King – Conversation


A well fitting title as even the instrumentation feels like a playful dialogue between strings and piano with discrete guitars widening the ambiance.

-Nagamag.com

soran – What If

“A soulful reflection of what is wasted when lovers are trying to hide and forget to trust each other that gradually shifts into a hopeful confession of love. What makes this song stick with you is Soran’s intimate, deeply felt vocals, brilliantly mixed and contrasted alternatively in a close and further away space.”

SORAN REVEALS THE POIGNANT, INTERGALACTIC NEW EP ‘SPACE BOY’

Singer-songwriter Soran returns, with brand new 5 track EP Space Boy. Following on from his recent offering, the honest and confessional ‘Way Up’, the cosmic ‘Space Boy’ and the electronic alt- pop, sad bop ‘Tired’, later 2021 into 2022 has seen Soran truly come into his own. Showcasing incredibly sophisticated songwriting, Soran radiates honesty throughout his lyricism and delivers this via an authentic confessional style narrative.

Beautifully using his music as a method of helping uncover and discover who he is as a person and as an artist, piece by piece, layer by layer, Soran’s unique puzzle is slowly slotting into place, revealing a coming of age story like no other.

With his ever evolving style Soran has truly landed with his explorative concoction of alternative RnB, Lo-fi, spacey electronics and buttery soft vocals all of which are perfectly displayed in this turn of the tide project ‘Space Boy’ via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

A beautiful balance resides in the EP itself, with half containing elements of Soran's past and the other representing his interpretation of his future. Referencing specifically that previous single ‘Tired’ and ‘What if’ are from before, ‘Don’t’ as a transitional piece and ‘Way Up’ and ‘Space Boy’ are defined as his newest offerings, providing insight into the direction he’s heading artistically and sonically.

‘Space Boy’ was a particularly poignant release for the young artist as it not only marked his return but was also a direct ode to his late mother who sadly passed last August. “

“That song means so much to me. My mom named me after the anime Space Boy Soran. In Japanese, there are three different alphabets. She decided to write my name as ‘Universe’ in Japan. Lyrically, it’s about a character who goes out to save the world.”

The tragic loss of Sorans mother continues to surface in his songwriting, but not always in the way you might expect. Each single is a true homage to their relationship and her memory. It’s almost as if Soran is sending a direct message to her through his music, which at times albeit heartbreaking it’s also such a beautiful means of communication and a highly intimate part of himself that he is openly sharing with his listeners.

“It’s ironic, because I’m doing all of the things that she wanted me to do now, but she’s gone. It sounds like me, yet so much of it is my mom. I find a way to celebrate her in every song.”

Soran invites you in, in a way unlike any other, showing and sharing pieces of his Mother within his songwriting and therefore also directly with his fans. With each release her memory continues to live on and although she may not physically be here to be able to share in Sorans successes, she is an integral part of him and is carefully and beautifully interwoven into the art he is creating.

“Space Boy tells my story in parallel with the Japanese anime "Space Boy Soran" from which my mother was inspired to choose my first name. Each song tells an experience that I lived the past 3-4 years and you can hear at the same time the evolution of my sounds shape. This EP is the introduction to a world where I, Space Boy, am about to dive to become the Soran invested with a mission: to reinvent the perspective of what is ‘Pop’.”

Entirely hands-on from conception all the way through to producing, Soran explores and absorbs it all, with genre being one of his favourite galaxies to traverse. Alongside writing for his own artistic project, Soran is also working with and writing songs for some other huge names in the industry such as Johnny Orlando, Alessia Cara, Zack Zoya and Anna Sofia.

Soran lives, eats and breathes music, from not being able to sleep without water sounds gently playing in the background to having his laptop set up on the tour bus in order to make tunes whilst he travels. Soran is following in the footsteps of the 1960s anime hero he was so aptly named after, with his super power and mission to explore and create music wherever it takes him, his dedication is clear and with this set in his sights, the universe is truly the limit.

Double Single Release – Link to “Together”: www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKx1ekbbrKY

Today, lofi producers and multi-instrumentalists Fletcher Reed and Nathan Kawanishi release two singles – “Together” and “Queued Up” – from their forthcoming collaborative album, Recycled Tape (out June 17 via Nettwerk Records).

For the album, the two labelmates swapped unfinished material and added their signature stylings to complete the work into a cohesive blend of ten tracks. The end result is a dreamlike form of lofi instrumentals touched with notions of nostalgia at the forefront.

“This mixtape consists of a bunch of unreleased songs that Fletcher Reed and I had laying around,” reflects Nathan. “We sent them to each other to finish (or salvage), hence the name of the tape. There was really no formula, sometimes only minor tweaks were made and at other times the new track sounds entirely different from the old one.”

Fletcher Reed reflects, “the result is a project that hopefully feels very much like an organic mixtape instead of a linear album. Using our combined creative efforts, it became a fun way to re-invigorate some excitement in old songs and demos that were feeling incomplete. Both of us enjoyed the process so much that Vol. 2 is now nearing its completion.”

And that's why the name Blocks came out :)“ Bratři are one of the most progressive projects on the Czech electronic scene and the mix of Berlin producer Hannes Bieger is adding a crown to the sound.

Psy’Aviah – Can We Make It Rhyme (feat. Mari Kattman)

“The masters of electronic music “Psy’Aviah” have released another gem, this time influenced from a retro synth taste. The hookiest rhythmic patterns are fused with passionate vocals performed from Mari Kattman, for an irresistible and addictive result.”

-Nagamag.com

This song is heavily inspired by synthpop and atmospheric but minimalistic synth use, yet the drums are inspired by the “big beat” and “jungle” era – but we did try to keep it in line to not go full on Prodigy or Chemical Brothers on it of course… It had to be a blend between the genres synthpop, triphop and synthpop – and above all stay poppy/catchy. The chord scheme was built up to be dramatic, yet trying to be accessible enough as well to touch hearts and minds.

From a lyric standpoint this track can be read as a love song or a song about humanity trying to get a grip and make it rhyme, sing the song again, listen to each other again vs all the left/right and black/white thinking… We wrote it as a love song, we wrote it because our heart sinks when we see images or conversations online & offline… Let us hope we can make it rhyme.

Alta Falls – Trust Me

“Hope and dreams with a wide angled view of emotions. Broad harmonic landscape with modern twists that embrace a forward movement in music. Rich in tonal complexity with top notch production. The layering is very mature and well balanced. ”

-Nagamag.com

‘Trust Me’ combines masterful lyricism packed with double entendres with a newfound sense of conviction, building on Alta Falls’ debut EP, ‘The Fire’. The track takes you through a narrative of its own, not just through the lyrics but with the instrumentals which rise and fall with the peaks of the story — eventually culminating to a frenetic yet flawless keyboard line.

The lyrics on ‘Trust Me’ were inspired after a bittersweet trip to the 2017 AFL Grand Final. “My team, the Adelaide Crows, were in their first grand final after almost 20 years, and my hopes were riding high to achieve a childhood dream of watching them win a flag,” explains lead singer, Nathanael. “Unfortunately it wasn’t to be. And although it was a heartbreaking result there are still plenty of fond memories, including taking in the post-match The Killers concert along with the other half of Alta Falls, Matt.”

The duo has continued working with producer Aidan Hogg (Jaguar Jonze, Holy Holy) for the new single, as well as Sebastian 'Baz' Jennings Hingston (Tia Gostelow) on drums.

Alta Falls may have released their debut EP only a matter of months ago, but they aren’t slowing down any time soon. Rumour has it a new EP is already in the works, and if ‘Trust Me’ is anything to go by, it’s bound to be an electro-pop delight, packed with that Alta Falls synthy charm.

-Nagamag.com

his is a 80s inspired track with a modernized spin to it. The lyrics and vibe of the track are stemming completely off “The Lost Boys” movie made in 1987. The main lyrical motivation for the song is pulled from a idea of living a life of a vampire in the 1980s searching and finding his true love.

Mellow, lo-fi vibes and beats with repetitive waterdrop chords, old-school vocal chop hooks, trippy sound effects juxtaposing super dynamic rap flows that portray the streets and the ambition to raise above all in most convincing way.”

Artist said about this track:

"This track is about growing up in Jersey and the people who helped me get to where I am today. Everything in this world is about building connections and I've been blessed to come into contact and work with some amazing creatives across the world. This track alone has a featured artist who is based in Atlanta and a young producer out of Germany. In this era of time distance is no longer an issue in order to create something amazing. I strive to be the best person I can and use music as a way of expression and to speak my truth in this world."
