NOTI – dante (Spotify)

“The success of track -dante- rests on its three pillars; melodic lounge sound, relaxed chill-hop rhythms and pulsating, captivating vocals. Your music library collection will soon be richer. Enjoy!”

“Успех трека -dante- держится на его трёх китах; мелодичность lounge музыки, непринуждённые ритмы chill-hop и пульсирующая мелодия пленительного вокала. Ваша библиотека станет на одну золотую коллекцию богаче. Наслаждайтесь!”

NOTI’s new track Dante dances back and forth between laidback lo-fi and soulful R&B. All but shrouded behind the curtain of the intricate instrumental, an anonymous Italian artist recites the introduction to eponymous poet Dante Alighieri’s Canto V of Inferno (Divina Commedia), instilling the composition with an aura of history and literary mystique. NOTI’s latest release soars to its climax when Anna Rossinelli’s ethereal voice enters the stage and brings Dante‘s final act to a triumphant close. Put your feet up, top off your glass of Chianti - and enjoy!

Benjamin Noti is a Basel-based producer and musician. He has worked with Audio Dope, Steff la Cheffe, The Rumours, Greis, Noti Wümié, Manillio, Anna Rossinelli, James Gruntz, Sam Himself, and the Basel Symphony Orchestra, among many others.

easing is Noti’s first instrumental solo-production. The recent lockdown afforded the highly sought-after songwriter and instrumentalist an opportunity to craft this production at his home studio. The 5-song EP showcases Noti’s wide-ranging abilities as a songwriter and musician, and draws on his rich experience as a fixture in the Swiss scene. Noti’s diverse influences, unified by his distinct, original style, shine through on lead single “85km/h”; an ode to poised motion, the track pulsates, subtly speeds up and slows down but remains ultimately unstoppable - much like the artist himself.

Jeni Schapire – Libby (Spotify)

“Very interesting low Bpm Dark wave release from Jeni Schapire. The track "Libby" starts with a smooth intro and goes on with some unexpected elusive vocals. Sometimes, great music appears all of a sudden, but in fact it was always present.”

-Nagamag.com

Tennessee-based Jeni Schapire shares her story through song and is ready to share the gorgeous, cinematic single "Libby." Hailing from Princeton, New Jersey, Jeni now calls Tennessee home –a fitting place for the rising artist and producer whose sound is a unique blend of folk-pop that leans into the electronic and cinematic sphere.

Jeni caught Billboard's attention with her self-produced single "Casual" (2020) from her What's In A Name EP, released last year. Billboard wrote, "There's something heart-rending about Jeni Schapire's voice as she sings...The incisive songwriting only stands to bolster Schapire's stunning vocals, as she emotes through every syllable of the heart-breaking song."

In her new self-produced single "Libby," dark, echoing synths and gorgeous reverberating vocals make you feel some type of way. "Libby" is a slow burner with understated but impactful production, which leans into a moody, cinematic space. The low-key nature of the soundscape paves a way for Jeni's beautiful words about the memories of her grandmother.

She shares, "When I was 15, I took a flight by myself for the very first time and visited my grandparents for a magical Minnesota summer. As she aged, my grandmother lost her sight. So, during this trip I sat on their couch and read Their Eyes Were Watching God aloud to her. In the novel, the protagonist begins to discover her hopes and dreams while lying under a pear tree. When I think about my grandma, Libby, many years after she died, I come back to this memory over and over. I’ve memorized every detail of us sitting in that living room. The lyrics to 'Libby' are all those details. I wrote them down after a dream where I was back there, reading about coming of age under a pear tree. It felt so real that the song shaped itself almost immediately. And all these years later, I think of their couch as my pear tree. Helping me grow and find out who I was supposed to be."

"she emotes through every syllable of the heart-breaking song." - Billboard

"one of our favorite new discoveries this year" - Bsides & Badlands

"textured and atmospheric" - AudioFemme

"melodies that gently soar across sonic space" - Imperfect Fifth

Jeni began performing when she was 15 under the moniker, Jennifer Rae. However, she soon came to realize that name didn’t truly reflect who she was as a songwriter. To step into her authentic identity as an artist meant a reclamation of her name: Jeni Schapire. From this reflection, her EP, What's In A Name, was born. The EP was crafted out of necessity and stepping into her own identity. Jeni shares, "It's been a long journey. Like a lot of queer folks, it took a long time to even be honest with myself. Learning to embrace my queerness has been crucial to feeling like my truest self and is weaved into the storytelling in these songs."

jenischapire.bandcamp.com/releases

"Name is identity—an often subconscious influence into how you perceive your place in the world. So what is in a name—if it’s not yours?" she adds. "What is your place in the world—if it’s not an authentic reflection of who you really are?" As Jeni powerfully steps into her artistry, her own story, her own name, and her own identity, you are invited to do the same.

andreas owens – falling & falling (Spotify)

“How many times have we felt falling? But we should realize that after a fall, we can only stand up. "falling & falling" describes the difficulty to control passions and obsessions. A meaningful song, which can give back the lost courage to move up again.”

-Nagamag.com

MARCH 19TH, 2021 – Los Angeles-based producer and singer-songwriter andreas owens releases his sophomore single, “falling & falling”, an experimental alternative pop track that samples The Millennial Club’s single, “If You Stay”, and is about our societal addiction to our phones and technology. The song follows the release of his incredibly lauded debut single, “don’t feel happy ◡̈”, which was well-received by outlets like DUMMY Mag, Substream Magazine, and We Found New Music, and landed on Spotify’s editorial playlists: Fresh Finds, Fresh Finds: Pop, and Study Break.

soundcloud.com/andreasowensmp3/falling-and-falling/s-BOs35Dwqt8N

“falling & falling”

Though the song has a pop-inspired exterior, underneath it all shines a gutsy surge of unabashed realism. A commentary on society’s addiction to social media and the Internet, andreas owens has crafted an irresistible pop shell with a helpless, all-too-relatable core. Being at the mercy of our own desires, it reveals, on every level, our 21st century disposition to spend more time on our phones than with our friends and family.

Another major theme in the track is the idea of seeing things on our phones that we wish we hadn’t. There’s a sad truth behind the realistic and modern limits to which we can protect our souls. At the end of the day, it’s something we brought upon ourselves due to our learned obsessive nature for attention and social engagement, and while at times it can be beneficial, it too often isn’t.

QUOTES

“The concept behind ‘falling & falling’ alludes to our collective (and my own) societal addiction to our phones. I remember having a conversation with my friends about how we all kinda want to be on our phones less, but still sadly just find ourselves ‘crawling back’ to them every single day. I think we’ve all had similar thoughts, wondering, ‘omfg how is it possible that I’ve been scrolling through TikTok and Instagram for two hours?’”

“Oftentimes, while it’s enjoyable to catch up on friends’ lives and see what they’re up to, these days, I feel like half the time I don’t even like doing that anymore because I’ve created such a negative relationship with social media and the online space. The Internet is more relevant now than it’s ever been, and ‘falling & falling’ is a screenshot of my relationship with it.”

ELUNIA – Soak (Spotify)

“New single "Soak" is out now from ELUNIA. Personal electronic style and crystal clear singing reveal something more than a typical song. Noticeable sweet transitions between melodies and lyrics, interesting pauses and courage-giving feelings are some highlights of this work.”

-Nagamag.com

"Soak" is the newest offering from the New Hampshire hailing artist ​ELUNIA​, whose release follows an impressive debut dropped back in January of this year. Loaded with ethereal textures and nostalgic synth sounds, "Soak" is a triumphant alt-pop single that is both commercial and cinematic in its production. The single was produced by ​ELUNIA and refined by multi-million streamed producer ​JMAC (​Luz​, ​Matilda​ ​Mann​, ​Haux, Rosie​ ​Carney).

Discussing the single ​ELUNIA​ explains:

“S​oak came about in the morning after a concert, just as the euphoria was fading. I had felt so alone for so long while struggling with anxiety and isolation caused by bullying and exclusion over the years, and I suddenly felt like someone had injected life into me. I had discovered this secret, special world of music that only I could know, only I could experience where I felt like I actually existed and mattered. It was a world that gave me highs without chemicals, while others felt like they needed substances and destructive habits to achieve that same feeling. I would desperately hold onto those moments and make them last as long as possible, and though that helped me cope, there was a part of me that knew I was idealizing the people I encountered and the experiences I had. I wrote Soak as a way to preserve those moments trying to hold onto positive memories before they slipped away and reality flooded back in.”

Her debut single "Borderlines" has received notable acclaim from the blog community and has picked up over 17,000 ​streams on Spotify since its release.

When reality became too much, ELUNIA created an alternative existence. A singer-songwriter-producer executing all of her own visuals, the New Hampshire-based recording artist captures the endless meaning of human interaction as an immersive experience. Each track delves beneath the surface, with striking electronic textures, soaring melodies, and observant, probing lyrics.

Although trained in music from an early age, it was the discovery of transforming feelings into creative entities that inspired the emerging songsmith to chart a different path. The multi-instrumentalist began writing and producing incessantly, hiding away in school practice rooms as a coping mechanism for the isolation she faced in the world around her. Fragments of thought, often noted in the midst of heart-wrenching moments, evolved into ethereal, liquid atmospheres. The result is a flood of wild self-expression channeled through thoughtfully-molded soundscapes.

In 2018, a chance conversation with multi-million streamed producer JMAC led to the materialization of her debut single “Borderlines”, a swirling, thumping examination of the toxic patterns associated with an artificial, forced sense of identity. Relatable phrases such as “I’m alive but I don’t fit into reality” tackle her struggle with mental health in an extroverted society and the mind-numbing effect of being in a creatively stifling environment. The rejection of social norms gave rise to music that defies labels.

Fohster – Till I Met You (Spotify)

“It seems that the composer of the song -Till I Met You- knows very well how to prepare a miraculous elixir. Actually, there is no other explanation for how else can create such spectacular sound results. The serenity of being and pure harmony.”

“Создаётся впечатление, что автор песни -Till I Met You- обладает знаниями, как приготовить чудотворный эликсир, ведь нет другого объяснения, как ещё можно создавать такие впечатляющие творения. Безмятежность бытия. Чистая гармония.”

David Josephson – Stockholm är en bra plats att leva på när man är död (Spotify)

“David Josephson makes a big step forward to deliver this beyond the basics song. Pure Indie Electronic mix with leading piano chords and the artist's passionate voice, is ready to entertain every listener.”

-Nagamag.com

A jeremiad with a melodic piano and heavy synthesizers about coming back to a place that once was your home. The people, places and dreams that you were ready to give up as you plunged into the unknown just to return again one day with your tail between your legs.

Andreas Kübler – We Could Be Stars (Video)

“Andreas Kubler delivers a new epic track to illuminate your dark moments. Prepare yourself for a short trip in space and back to Earth. Powerful mix that follows an upright direction and unearthly vocal touch in a super galactic video.”

-Nagamag.com

Andreas Kübler’s life is all about music. He went on stage to tour Europe as singer and bass guitar player right after school, played lots of music and left the stage again to compose even more. His style could be described as epic music, but plainly emotional would cover it better. A contemporary, modern orchestral sound is the basis of his compositions, but that’s all that makes them comparable.

Andreas is one of the founders and the lead composer of the popular music studio IMAscore and responsible for the music of some of the most successful movie marketing campaigns of all time. This includes Disney’s The Lion King, Aladdin, How To Train Your Dragon, Jurassic World, Avengers and the Star Wars saga. On top of that the music he wrote for the Captain Marvel promotional campaign won the prestigious Clio Gold Award in 2019.

Andreas Küblers public music is the musical portrayal of his artist self. No limitations, no briefings, no boundaries.

Son Lux — “A Different Kind of Love” (Official Visualizer) (Video)

“”A Different Kind of Love” by Son Lux steps into diversity with not afraid to improvise into new sound design styles, out of the basic vocal trends. Deep heartwarming vocals with a deep artistic sound design which pushes out your hidden emotions and satisfy your listening needs. High quality here! ”

-Nagamag.com

Much has been said about the scope and intent of Son Lux’s multi-album Tomorrows project. Born of an active, intentional approach to shaping sound, the music reminds us of the necessity of questioning assumptions, and of sitting with the tension.

Today they announce the arrival of Tomorrows III, set for an April 16th release via City Slang. Bell tolls of a detuned guitar clang out a warning at the start of “A Different Kind of Love”, the new single out today. Thick punches of percussion enter and the song moves in heaves through a foggy atmosphere of sound. Instruments remain mostly out of focus, but in brief moments, flurries of strings and woodwinds emerge and recede from the fog.

The music encompassed on Tomorrows provides an appropriate parallel for the sustained cacophony of the present moment, advancing a friction that reveals the strange in the familiar and the familiar in the strange. The deluxe physical edition of the Tomorrows series will be released July 30th on City Slang.
