Mikayla – Insecure (Spotify)

“There are times that we feel insecure and looking for an opportunity to run away from other people. Mikayla with her brand new track Insecure undertakes the task to express this highly negative emotions with unbelieveable sensitivity embelissed with her elegant voice”

-Nagamag.com

“Insecure” is about when you don’t believe you're worth any love, trust or good in life. That you are scared that people are gonna know how you see yourself and scare them away. As soon as you get the opportunity to run you do it. You’re too sensitive to exist and all you wanna do is to feel love but all you do is push it away.

Klangkarussell – Follow (Spotify)

“"Follow" this brilliant sound design of Klangkarussell & GIVVEN at Bias Beach Records, delivering a summer melancholy through their chill house beats. Dreamy warm vocals and lush reverbs with a groove that will make you move. A song that you want to end a great night at club.”

-Nagamag.com

Klangkarussell x GIVVEN’s ‘Follow’ drops almost a year to the day since Klangkarussell launched Bias Beachwith ‘Comoros’, their first single away from a major label deal that spawned hit singles ‘Sonnentanz’ and ‘Time’, and their debut album, ‘Netzwerk’. Going independent has proven to be a winning strategy: Klangkarussell nowhave over 2.75 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone, spurred by the huge success of a run of singles, and Bias Beach has become home to other artistic configurations such as GIVVEN, who featured on ‘Ghostkeeper’and comprise Klang’s Adrian alongside Jordan and Nico.

Adrian and Tobi’s last single, ‘My World’ (feat. Kyle Pearce), and the accompanying short film, revisitedenvironmental issues that Klangkarussell have previously touched upon in their songs. This single joined ‘Shipwreck’ as a two-track release and has so far had over 3 million streams. Ahead of this came ‘Ghostkeeper’, their previous collaboration with GIVVEN, which has now hit over 7 million streams.

‘Comoros’ was Bias Beach’s debut release, and at the time Klangkarussell’s first new music in over 2 years. The burst of studio activity had followed a summer of standout festival performances and sold out headline shows that saw them play to crowds in the UK (sold out Night Tales London), Europe (including taking the Saturday night honours at Benicassim), Beirut and South America. This January, Tobi and Adrian played another sold out headline show at Night Tales London (which saw queues around the block), with further DJ dates in Europe and beyond. Forthcoming shows have been cancelled and rescheduled where possible due to coronavirus.

Klangkarussell, which translates to English as "Sound Carousel", were formed in Salzburg, Austria by Tobias Rieser and Adrian Held. Both respected producers in their own right, they first broke through with the jazz-tinged instrumental club record ‘Sonnentanz’, which reached the Top 10 singles chart in 6 different countries, including No.1 in The Netherlands. Like many dance artists faced with unexpected success, a record they’d written for their own DJ sets had taken on a life of it’s own, and when a vocal version - retitled ‘Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine)’ and featuring British soul singer Will Heard - was released the following summer, the track charted in both the UK and Ireland, going on to become one of the biggest dance records of this decade (despite the pair shunning all publicity).

Following the success of ‘Sonnentanz’, the duo then released their second single, ‘Netzwerk (Falls Like Rain)’, featuring vocalist Tom Havelock, and which also became a hit. Klangkarussell’s debut album, ‘Netzwerk’, appeared soon after and sporting the singles ‘Hey Maria’ and ‘In the Crowd Alone’ appeared in 2016, followed by ‘Time’, ‘Circuits’, and ‘Good to Go’ in 2017. Musically, and with the type of creative freedom they had during their initial rise to fame, both Tobi and Adrian have entered a new decade exactly where they want to be.

Playing, creating helped him to understand people's silence and his own.
He may don't consider himself a virtuoso but always wanted to give voice to emotions, shades and sensations, giving them life through his music.

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!
