Tony Igy – Astronomia (Never Go Home) Official Video (Video)

“We all been addicted to this pop theme, especially after goes viral, but this vocal version push its limits a step further and gives us one more reason to be more memorable. Exuberant sound production and sweet vocals for a classical melodic line now.”

Tony Igy’s ‘Astronomia (Never Go Home)’ sees the superstar Russian DJ and producer team-up with Jesper Borgen (who wrote Alan Walker’s global smash hit, ‘Faded’) to create a vocal version of his now legendary original track, ‘Astronomia’. Released 9 October 2020 on Sony/B1, ‘Astronomia’ is already building into one of the biggest songs of the year.The story of ‘Astronomia (Never Go Home)’ first began in 2010, when Tony’s instrumental became a worldwide club and internet anthem. 6 years later, the Dutch DJ duo, Vicetone, released a remix of Tony’s original that once again saw it embraced by a new generation. Fast forward to February 2020, and earlier this year ‘Astronomia’ was used as the soundtrack for what’s become known as the ‘coffin carrier’ meme featuring a Ghanian funeral dance cut into a video of a skier making a hard landing; by April it had become the world’s most popular meme (22.4 million videos on TikTok), catapulting ‘Astronomia’ to #3 Shazam Global Chart, #6 Spotify Global Viral Chart, #99 Spotify Global Chart, +185 million streams, +1.000.000 daily streams, and Spotify Top 200 in 19 countries.Tony and Jesper’s new song takes the ear-worm hook and one of the decade’s most memorable riffs to another level entirely, a new vision for a record that is fast becoming a modern classic.Tony Igy was born in Russia, Kamensk – Shakhtinsky, Rostov region. He started making electronic music at an early age and wrote is first tune while still at school, the reason being that “it was boring, especially in winter.” He first started listening to the Prodigy, becoming a fan of their energy and sound as well as Liam Howlett’s production. In 2006, Tony wrote one of his first notable tracks ‘Pentagramma’, it started as a track amongst his friends and ended up becoming an anthem at the famous Kazantip festival. Since then his career has gone international, but he remains one of Russia’s most popular dance music stars, working across genres including drum & bass, techno, and trance.

Lonely Faces Interview on Nagamag



What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Lonely Faces:
Acid, Techno, EDM

Few words about your musical background and career?

Lonely Faces:
I have been interested in instrumental electronic music from a very young age. Originally playing piano and then bass guitar, i made the change to synthesizers by means of my first set of keys when i was in high school. Having always been fascinated with pattern and repetition, it was natural for me to gravitate towards dance and club music. During my late teens and 20s, i was heavily influenced by what was going on here in Melbourne-it was the 90s- there was a thriving rave scene and the music was very fresh and new. You could go out just about every night of the week- it was a very Inspirational time and i feel very honoured to be part of a very exciting era in music.

It was really a decade later that i really became serious about production and really started to build my studio and learn my craft. I had a strong leaning toward analog synthesizers and classic technology form the 80s being a prolific user of many of the Roland instruments from that era, namely the x0x series of devices that we all know and love.

My association with Tempest Recordings and more recently, it's subsidiary Slice Records, began around 5 years ago with the release of some work under the name Guilty Hero (a duo)- a name i no longer use. I decided to forge ahead with Lonely Faces, as this satisfied my various creative desires, and this is where I find myself today....Happily working in my studio, experimenting and exploring.

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

Lonely Faces:
Music has always been a combination of escapism and self expression for me. From a very early age, i had an interest in the process of electronic music making- even long before i knew the techniques, i was compelled my the musical result of sound design and sequencing. I listened to a lot of krout rock and decided that one day I was to create my own technology based art.

You talk about 80s Synthesizers. Can you please elaborate about the uses of this technology.

Lonely Faces:
I think a lot of people would assume that technology based music would use the most up-to-date equipment at the time....Not so for me, as most of the sound sources i use really have there roots in previous decades. As with many of my contemporaries the TR series of drum machines and of course the 303 are very important devices. The way these instruments sound has always intrigued me, both in use and result.

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?

Lonely Faces:
Mike Oldfield "Ommadawn Pt1"

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

Lonely Faces:
Thomas P. Heckmann "Himmel & Hoelle"

Sly (with Emily Warren) – Cotton Candy (Video)

Enticing alt-pop newcomer Sly joins the Village with his riveting debut single “Cotton Candy,” featuring the talented Emily Warren (multi-billion-stream driving force behind hits for Dua Lipa, Khalid, Sigrid, Rita Ora and Charli XCX) on vocals. Sly, aka Sylvester Sivertsen, has racked up esteemed credits over the past few years, having collaborated and produced for notable artists including The Chainsmokers, Liam Payne, Cheat Codes, the Jonas Brothers and many more. Now he returns to the forefront of emerging artists as a songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist with his debut release. Having grown up to parents involved in the arts, music runs deep in Sly’s bloodline. His father is renowned producer and drummer Jan Sivertsen and his mother, perhaps his greatest inspiration, is the legendary Danish singer and songwriter Lis Sørensen. The Copenhagen-based artist grew up watching his parents work with analogue equipment which led him to begin teaching himself how to produce in Logic, drawing inspiration from Daft Punk and Justice but continuing to experiment with his personal sound.By his late teens Sly had perfected his skill for mixing live instrumentation and synthesized beats, landing him an early cut with Liam Payne. His success soon spiraled into bigger cuts like “Side Effects” which went on to hit hundreds of millions of streams for The Chainsmokers. “When I started making the music I wanted to hear, I hit a vein,” he says. In turn, inspired by his work with major artists and noticing that he was building a catalogue of idiosyncratic, compelling and human pop, Sly really did start making music for himself.2020 is here and Sly has begun to emerge as a dynamic artist in his own right. In his scintillating debut release “Cotton Candy,” Sly shares his own music with the world: combining state-of-the-art pop production, emotion, and humanity. “Human emotion is what music is about,” proclaims Sly. “I’m very particular about whether music makes me feel something – in its lyric, its melody, its sound, or all three at once,” he explains. New single “Cotton Candy” hits the mark. Sly captures a dark, moody, and sexy energy in this new track and Warren’s luxurious vocals were just what the song needed. He explains that the single is about not giving up on love. “Emily was going through a breakup and we were talking about how difficult love can be, and how to know when you should let go or keep fighting.’Cotton Candy’ is a song about not being ready to give up and Emily got back with her boyfriend the next day.” Sly effortlessly blends pop-forward production with a passion for analogue synths and real drums and guitars, making for a sonic palate that feels both fresh and familiar. Sly seamlessly introduces new elements to the pop lane and “Cotton Candy” is his first official offering.
