Washington, DC’s Young Summer continues to prove she’s got a penchant for writing lyrically rousing songs that linger in your head until the very last note. “Fallout” is the third cut from her EP and is a heartfelt slice of beautifully textured pop that’s sure to be reverberating around your headspace for the rest of the week.

Detroit-based duo Gosh Pith is taking care of business prior to their massive upcoming fall tour schedule. Fusing a scintillating combination of electronic, hip-hop, and trap influences, the pairing’s originality is on full-display with their new single, “In My Car.”

It’s refreshingly difficult to pigeonhole this song into a single genre and that’s only one of the best parts about it. The vocals are smooth and subtle, yet the beat could easily bang on a proper set of speakers in the club. Fun fact: “In My Car” was crafted in one of Detroit’s oldest churches (re-purposed as a creative hub by a group of local musicians) after years of sitting vacant.

Since officially launching back in 2013, the Moving Castle collective, home to talents like Manila Killa, Chet Porter, Robokid + more, has quickly established itself as the prime destination for several of the dance music industry’s most eclectic, promising visionaries. Kid Froopy is the latest to join the ranks of the impressive Moving Castle roster and his newest release “BB” does not disappoint.

I’m sure you’ve felt that some people hurt too good to turn away from at times and love makes people work in mysterious ways. Between apps like Tinder and Bumble, the “art” of dating has become somewhat of a joke in the modern day and age. Kid Froopy hones in on the irony of it all and shows off his originality by manipulating his own vocals over warm and addictive guitar riffs, crisp snares, and colorful synth arpeggios to great effect. While Moving Castle may already have a star-studded roster, Kid Froopy is more than making his mark with his newest release.
