Music Genre

oYYo, Aven – Eyes (Spotify)

“Listening to this track it turned instantly charming. Feel the whole depth of those Drum & Bass rhythms and understand that -Eyes- is so deep that the vibration of sound waves absorbs you from the inside.”

“Включив этот трек мгновенно очаровываешься его лёгкостью и непринужденностью. Чувствуешь всю глубину его drum & bass ритмов и понимаешь, что -Eyes- работа настолько глубокая, что вибрации звуковых волн поглощает тебя изнутри. ”

Transient Lines – Calm Unrest (Spotify)

“Taken from the latest "Transient Lines" EP this track is not just another Downtempo single, but carries some kind of magic. The artist attracts your attention with gentle wave patterns and a variety of sophisticated sounds. A true elixir, which we loved from the first listening. Congratulations!”

Transient Lines is the electronic solo project of Max Lanzinger.

The combination of rather dark spheric elements with driving beats could be a rough description of his music.

Calm Unrest is a testimony of his drive as a musician that arises from a certain inner restlessness. At the same time the contradictory title aims to describe a felt quietude and peace whilst getting lost in the process of creating music.

Adibanti – The Overflow (Spotify)

“"The Overflow" is a mix of House with Garage influences. The artist has combined his soft, elusive voice with some catchy synth loops. A very nice example of personal creation, which has nothing to do with typical music patterns.”

With the world finally starting to slowly recover from a year of a global pandemic, raging protests, and toppling economies, 2020’s silver-lining was that it gave people time to reflect on what is truly important for the future. For Adibanti, aka Rory J Nelson, he took the time to double down on himself musically and craft some of the best records of his career. One of those recordings, entitled “The Overflow”, is set to come out on June 18th and is a layered composition built on a garage beat but contains thoughtful songwriting that muses about the volatile nature of our current world.

’This tune has been on a real journey and is about living in the modern era. With so much difference of opinion, 2021 is a notoriously tricky age to navigate. Express and love’

- Adibanti

Matt FX, Melika – A Love Beginning (Spotify)

“Happy and playful song ideal for the dark moments of loneliness we may experience. "Matt FX" uses his sound producing skills in the service of the Deep House scene, while "Melika" unfolds her singing artistry to complete this masterpiece. The result is only one clik away!”

“A Love Beginning” is a cool, crisp, neon single dripping in vibrant dynamics and lush additional instrumentation from saxophonist and producer Braxton Cook. It is about that special moment when you walk into a party and see someone that makes time stop-and what happens after that moment.

Reminiscent of Disclosure, Melika ’s sleek vocals glide over the beat to create an energetic pulse, accompanying the rise and fall of the track's melodies.

Adibanti – You (Spotify)

“Adibanti delivers your favourite drum & bass sound with fast bpm ideal for energy restoration. In this single he has geniusly added some soft lyrics to slow down speed. Prototypic work with personal touch just for "You"!”

London born producer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter Adibanti (aka Rory J Nelson) is set to release his first single of 2021 with the deconstructed Drum & Bass meets soul ballad entitled “You”. The forward-thinking single showcases Adibanti’s penchant for precise genre-bending and utilizes his smooth vocals over the layered & scattered percussion to confess his devotion to an anonymous paramour.

“As I am a massive DnB lover, I am really excited to release a tune that shows this. I listen to so much music and write in so many different styles that it doesn’t make sense for me to stick to a single genre. ‘You’ is an incredibly emotional tune for me and isn’t what you would traditionally call Drum & Bass but in the not so distant future I have some proper Liquid to release that I am even more excited about!” - Adibanti

Michal Martyniuk, Vanessa Freema – How Do We Make It? (Spotify)

“Collaboration single that blends classical with electronic ideas. Starting with piano melodies you cannot imagine that the following part switches into House! Yes, it's possible to have both in one and the outcome sounds very artistic too.”

One of New Zealand’s most talented contemporary Jazz artists, Michal Martyniuk, brings his magic to the soulful dance music arena by way of a stunning collaboration with one of the UK’s best loved vocalists, Vanessa Freeman (4Hero, Nathan Haines and Bugz In The Attic).

Soulecta, Lee Walker – Good for You (Spotify)

“Super strong beat, high pitched singing effects and very rich percussion are fairly enough to prove this track good, good for you! Another collaboration gem patiently waiting for the dancefloor success. Fascinating endless UK Garage style of course.”

Rising Garage star Soulecta teams up with House heavyweight Lee Walker (Defected/Hot Creations/DJ Mag Best Remix Winner 2016) for their new single ‘Good For You’. The track is a perfect blend of energetic house and garage, seamlessly mixing house drums with garage bass and vocals, creating a record that can be enjoyed at home, at the gym, or on the dancefloor by house and garage fans across the world

LEGATO – It Was You, It Was Always You (Spotify)

“By listening -It Was You, It Was Always You- immediately felt the impact of jazz and light in so unobtrusive seclusion which gives limitless improvisation.”

“Слушая -It Was You, It Was Always You- сразу ощущается джазовое влияние, а лёгкая и такая ненавязчивая камерность даёт безграничный простор импровизации.”

The first installment of a brand new 2 track EP - due out in its entirety this April - sees LEGATO meld incisive, swing-infused percussion; gentle, soporific keys; and ghostly vocals - that swoop and fade throughout - to craft this ultra-elegant and entrancing new record; one that doubles-up nicely as a bold, 2021 opening gambit from EMR.

Stayhomie — I can do it for you (feat. Snezhik) (Video)

“Cool and loose-limbed piece of art, ideal for your ears. Do you need to isolate from the daily madness? Just pick up your headphones and adjust the volume level. Concentrate on the slow beat and let the singer’s charming voice lift you in the clouds.”

Stayhomie presents a music video for his single “I Can Do It For You”. Its footage was shot by photographer Luis Quintero at the mass of a religious community in Panama. These visually powerful video clips inspired Max Kubbe (a.k.a. Stayhomie) to put them together to make one whole story with a stunning climax.

Single “I Can Do It For You” is taken from the debut album “Random Heartbreaking Memories vol. 1”. Album features several vocalists from different parts of the world: Grisly Faye, Bark Bark Disco, Snezhik, Neon Lights, Bew Nalance.

Stayhomie: “There are two selves inside of me. One of them looks toward melancholic experimental sound, the other one infinitely loves aesthetics of the 90’s, ultramelodism and sentimental pop-phrasing. You can find both of them on this album”.

Stayhomie is an electronic producer from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Ultramelodism, patchwork of voice samples, vintage synthesizers and Roland 808.

du0 – Come Home feat. Emily Coulston (Acoustic) (Video)

“From where to start and where to end for this blissful song? Wins your attention from the first milliseconds! The sound layering and atmosphere here is brilliant, Emily Coulston impressive vocal capabilities comes to give the secret spice of a wonderful recipe that has been cooked here. This is a memorable song, which invites you to listen again and again on repeat! ”

The track had an unlikely birth. du0 tells the story: “The three of us were among nine musicians invited to attend AMPLIFY, QMusic’s Songwriting Retreat at Heliport Studios in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in Queensland, Australia. It was amazing and incredibly hectic. We were rotated in groups of three and had to come up with a song from scratch, and produce and record it in 4 hours. We did this five times in three days.”

The result, Come Home, has had 1,107,000 streams on Spotify, but little radio play so far. And now the acoustic video is going off on YouTube. There may be something in this, we don’t know. Hopefully you can help us find out what it is.
