Alice Pisano – September (Spotify)

“September is a wonderful reason to pour a cup of hot tea, wrap in a warm plaid and enjoy your favorite music. Piano, which pours the soul in front of his listener is a highlight of this song. The vocals here is not just present, giving life, without this track simply would not had such strong identity.”

“Сентябрь прекрасный повод, чтобы налить чашку горячего чая, закутаться в тёплый плед и насладиться любимой музыкой. Пиано, которое изливает душу перед своим слушателем, является изюминкой этой песни. Вокал здесь не просто присутствует, он является тем, без чего этого трека просто не было бы.”

Italian born, London based singer/songwriter Alice Pisano is known for her uniquely warm vocals and natural ability for writing emotive pop songs. Her passion for music flourished from a very young age, where she spent much of her time as a teenager singing in various bands and studying classical piano, guitar and singing. With the desire to create authentic music that listeners can deeply connect to, Alice’s emotional and heartfelt music touches on her own personal experiences and relationships.

Her latest heart-tugging single “September” captures the post-sunshine blues, as Alice explains, “I wanted to try and capture that bittersweet feeling that I often get towards the end of summer…and at the same time, the end of love, when you’re trying hard to forget about someone but everyone and everything reminds you of them”. The bittersweet end-of-summer anthem is produced by John Foyle (Years & Years, Maisie Peters) and driven by rich piano motifs and intimate vocals.

Sometimes less is more, and for Alice, no more than a piano and her stunning voice is enough to engross an entire room full of people. With strong chords, the dynamics ripple a reflection of emotion in the lyricism, paired with the skeletal landscape and haunting backing melodies which pour out like an angelic aura. Alice displays the power of simplicity, showing true skill as both a musician and writer.

Alice has garnered numerous Spotify editorial support, including 14 New Music Friday’s across the globe and critical acclaim from publications such as Clash and Wonderland Magazine. Amassing millions of streams for her infectious and relatable anthems, Alice’s music can be heard on radio stations wide and far, including BBC Radio London, National Dutch Radio and Amazing Radio in the UK and US. Her songs have entered the iTunes Pop Charts and the uptempo “Open Up” landed the soundtrack for the summer trailer of the British hit TV show, Hollyoaks. The acclaimed songwriter has had the pleasure of collaborating with the likes of Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Ian Barter (Dermott Kennedy, Izzy Bizu), John Foyle (Maisie Peters, Years & Years) and Troy Miller (Emeli Sandé, Jamie Cullum). Quickly becoming an artist on the rise, there is no slowing down Alice Pisano.

DiaNa – Time I$ Money (Spotify)

“Music that reveals the inner world of the author in the form of sounds and melodies. All this sounds as solid and melodic as possible. Energetic, juicy and surprisingly uniform sound. Very bright vocals, which is subject to everything!”

“Музыка, которая раскрывает внутренний мир автора в форме из звуков и мелодий. Всё это звучит максимально цельно и мелодично. Энергичное, сочное и на удивление единое звучание. Очень яркий вокал, которому подвластно всё!”

Lebanese-American pop singer-songwriter DiaNa shares her empowering debut single ‘Time I$ Money’, out now on all streaming platforms.

Naming Doja Cat and Ariana Grande as her biggest inspirations, DiaNa draws from her combined influences, totally owning her own brand of gutsy, bold dark pop.

Speaking of the track, DiaNa says, “With this track, I want to empower people to not accept having their time wasted, particularly by unforgivable exes who don’t deserve your time. I wish that my listeners remember to only be treated like the kings and queens they are!”

DiaNa has been singing all her life for fun, however it took the pandemic for DiaNa to break out of the bubble of her career expectations and Middle Eastern family pressure she grew up with to learn to follow her dreams. Music was always considered an ‘inappropriate’ career path by her family, and so she spent all her educational years and free time pursuing academia. “As the world began to fall apart, I came to terms with the fact that music is my strongest passion and what makes me the happiest.”

DiaNa built her own bedroom studio, started learning how to mix vocals and started networking with other music creators to create and release her incredibly catchy debut single “Time I$ Money.”

Drawing from her combined musical influences, DiaNa thrives on being able to experiment with her music and the concepts and emotions she’s able to portray. She lives and breathes music, and hopes that through her music, she empowers her listeners to believe in themselves too!

Palmaria – Ocean (Spotify)

“We'd like to highlight the emotional vocal part, which so perfectly fits with those guitar soundscapes. Colourful sound palette with deep blue, irradiating on the sunny water surface of the vast ocean. True pleasure!”

“Сразу же хочется выделить эмоциональную вокальную составляющую, которая так отлично вписывается в гитарные пейзажи. Красочное полотно, как синяя, переливающаяся на солнце водная гладь бескрайнего океана. Истинное наслаждение!”

Palmaria are an Alt Pop duo from a small town in Italy, currently residing in London. Members Giulia and Francesco have been making a name for their distinctive sound, poetically transporting listeners on a journey of dreamy landscapes and uplifting experiences. Think The xx meets Sylvan Esso, meets Little Dragon on a field trip to the Italian coast.

Their latest single “Ocean” is off of their upcoming EP, Crystallize. Co-written and produced with B-CROMA (Yendry, Fia Moon), the single stays true to their sound of delicate, hypnotizing vocals with a mix of organic sounds and utopian guitars. Taking sonic inspiration from the drums on James Blakes’ “You’re Too Precious”, the duo re-interpreted the sound through Francesco’s classical guitar.

The song is inspired by the legend of Colapesce, the magical story of a man that sacrifices his life on earth, turning into a fish to save his island, but also highlights the problem of the pollution of the ocean. “Ocean” is a call for help. The duo confides, “We wanted to give voice to our frustration; it’s been hurtful to see what is happening, especially growing up in a town almost surrounded by the sea. The ocean has always been such an important element in our lives, inspiring and healing us everytime we were in need, so it’s now our turn, we have to protect it.”

“Ocean” takes you to a surreal, idyllic, safe place, where you can feel free and you can be yourself, inspiring creativity and kindness. In this particular case, kindness towards nature, in a time where it’s pivotal that we stop ignoring the dangers we are already facing and start taking action. The single release sees the duo partnering with OGYRE - an environmental organization that protects oceans and collects plastic waste from the shores, turning it into products.

Palmaria have garnered acclaim from publications such as Complex, The Line of Best Fit and CLASH and have been playlisted by numerous official Spotify and Apple playlists including New Music Friday, Fresh Finds and many more, amassing over 3 million streams across DSPs to date.

Jantine – Stockholm Syndrome (Spotify)

“The lyrics cause sincere emotions not only through sensual perception, but also at the subconscious level. Original and loved Synthpop, with rich sound arrangement and an atmosphere of hypnotic effect!”

“Текст вызывает искренние эмоции не только через чувственное восприятие, но и на уровне подсознательного. По своему оригинальный, но по-прежнему любимый многими Synthpop, насыщенная аранжировка и атмосфера придают звучанию гипнотический эффект!”

Inspired by the feeling of being unable to resist someone that you know is not good for you, Dutch, UK-based singer/songwriter Jantine returns to BB Music Group with ‘Stockholm Syndrome’. Aptly written in Stockholm, alongside Matilda Thompson and Oliver Forsmack, it is a radio-ready creation that perfectly blends pristine pop production with Jantine’s smooth vocals. With all the hallmarks of a radio hit, ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ gives further insight into the depths of her artistic talents.

Joel Ray – No Sleep (Spotify)

“Realize and enjoy the high-quality sound, the beauty of melody and the promise that comes from the loops of this explosive track! Dissolving in vibrations, feel the harmony of the world and become an integral part of it. Most importantly - don't sleep tonight until you listen to this great song!”

“Осознать и насладиться качественным звуком, красотой мелодии и посылом, доносящимся из недр этого взрывного трека! Растворись в вибрациях, почувствуй гармонию мира и стань его неотъемлемой частью. И, главное - не засыпай, пока не послушаешь песню до конца!”

It's been almost three years since Bernese songwriter Joel Ray made it onto the playlists of mainstream radio stations with songs like "Bigger Love," "River" or "L.O.V.E.". His distinctive combination of poppy hooks and positive vibes hit the zeitgeist.

Now the journey continues. Joel Ray has been developing his sound over the past few months together with Zurich-based producer Tom Oehler (Ikan Hyu, Tobias Carshey, Nick Mellow).

Today we can send you "No Sleep". A contemporary pop number that immediately shows: pop music made in Switzerland is incredibly fun.

Juli Chan – Joe Le Taxi (Video)

“From the very first notes, you are amazed at how carefully the performer treated the heritage of the singer Vanessa Paradis and with great love made a gorgeous cover version of one of the best songs of 1987! Voice, presentation and beautiful modern arrangement here are top notch!”

“С первых нот поражаешься, как бережно исполнительница отнеслась к наследию певицы Vanessa Paradis и с огромной любовью сделала шикарную кавер-версию одной из лучших песен 1987 года! Голос, подача и красивая современная аранжировка сделали своё дело!”

Juli Chan rejuvenates the legendary French hit of the eighties with her delicate and sensual cover. Discover what Joe Le Taxi sounds like today, 34 years after it topped charts around the world.

Juli Chan has already got her fans used to her spectacularly sung covers. Recently, the artist paid tribute to Ariana Grande – her longtime mentor and music inspiration, interpreting the song “Bad Idea” from the bottom of her heart. Today she reaches for “Joe Le Taxi” – the essence of the 1980s POP. Introducing contemporary sounds to the French hit, she vibes with the song and her candid voice.

“Joe Le Taxi” is a song about a taxi driver who knows all the romantic streets of Paris very well. Joe loves the Parisian nightlife, with all the secret bars and shining bridges over the Seine. There is always good music in his cab. Standing in a traffic jam, the taxi driver Joe treats his passengers with a rumba, mambo, saxophone sounds and good old rock.

When I was researching the song I discovered a fascinating story behind the lyrics. Joe is the pseudonym of Maria José Leão dos Santos, Portuguese female taxi driver who fled to France in the 1970s. Maria José was persecuted because of her sexual orientation. When Mari José’s mother discovered her daughter was a lesbian, she took her to an exorcist, later to the hospital and eventually put her in a school run by nuns. In the French capital, she took the name Joe and a profession stereotypically reserved for men. She could be herself safely traveling around night Paris with guests of LGBT clubs. I think this story about the need for tolerance, non-discrimination, as a tribute to all strong women – it is worth recalling today as well as the beautiful melody of “Joe Le Taxi” from years ago.

XHOANA X – The Villain (Video)

“Enjoy the lung melody, angelic singing and an interesting selection of chords. The bold rhythm section, which seems to be dug in your brain, and dramatism allocated on a general background adds energy and lush atmosphere to the already bright work!”

“Наслаждаетесь лёгкой мелодией, ангельским пением и интересным подбором аккордов. Дерзкая ритм-секция, которая словно впивается в ваш мозг, а ярко выделяющийся на общем фоне драматизм лишь добавляет и в без того яркую работу долю энергии и пышной атмосферы!”

Albanian born XHOANA X takes her dark, Eastern European heritage very seriously. From an upbringing of one of the most tolerant spiritual cultures in the world, comes a unique style of art, with a mixture of freedom, rebellion and heroism.

The relaxed form of culture from Albania is the driving force here. You are in the darkest little corner of your room. And yet, this is where you find that you are most comfortable. Although perhaps you also find yourself a bit surprised at the ease in which you exist here.

The unexpected seems natural.

The rich enthralling darkness is the vibe.

Following in the footsteps of early musical influences the likes of Massive Attack and ‪Portishead, XHOANA’s music takes us on a spellbinding journey, as if we are preparing for a series of pagan rituals based on mystical beliefs.

Make no question here, she is the high priestess, and in full control of the ritual. The journey is a web in which we are caught, but you’ll find it hard to turn your ears away. You are trapped in a web of intrigue and sensuality while a neo noir movie plays in your head.

Her look and fashion is no less captivating, additionally filled with occasional David Lynch-esque twists and turns. Although her main ambition has always been on developing her musical recording career, XHOANA has also worked both as an actress, influencer, and model.

Великолепная работа с вокалом и ритмом, всё настолько гармонично связано, что сложно не поддаться искушению и добавить в свой плейлист на многоразовый повтор.”

Bloome – heaven (Spotify)

“A magnificent performance, a real author's cry from the heart - a very strong work that flows with its unimaginable beauty of melody and voice from vocalist. The highest professionalism is felt and deserves due attention!”

“Великолепное исполнение, настоящий авторский крик души - очень сильная работа, которая берёт своей невообразимой красотой мелодии и голоса вокалистки. Чувствуется высочайший профессионализм и заслуживает должного внимания!”
