When it comes to his genre diversity, Klahr says there is not a specific motive behind why he chooses to produces in one genre over another at any given time. His new single “Falling in Love” came simply from the headspace he was in at the time, and the rest of the track just fell into place from there. “Falling in Love” provides a nice glimpse into Klahr’s emotions, and proves how powerful one’s surroundings can be in the making of their art.

I came across the vocal sample in the Salsoul catalogue, the message was simple and resonated with me. This song is really personal to me and I hope people get something from it. – Klahr

Young self taught producer, Kultur keeps on climbing the ladder and asserting himself as a household name. He describes his  new single “Everchange” as “a blend of all of the past and future”. On “Everchange,” Dabo picks up right where he left off a year ago on “Love You Better.” “Everchange” kicks off with a dark and ominous introduction backed by a vibrant vocal cut repeating, “don’t ever change.” “Everchange” is the lead single from Kultur’s upcoming EP dropping November 16th

German born, London-based producer Chris Avantgarde is back with “True Love,” a new single on VNTGRD – Chris’ self-made creative collective, record label, and publishing house focusing on conceptual electronic music releases.

“True love marks the first step into my new direction. It combines elements of previous influences with the new. It’s a record that can be listened to outside of a club-scenario. A hybrid of electronic melodic and cinematic gritty elements, telling a story about how music is the one true love for me, free to express myself in a way, and with a purpose that I hadn’t found before. It gives a taste of what’s to come but leaves room  for interpretation and hopefully imagination in the listener’s mind. Expression through music is true love for me, but it’s different for everyone else. This record is supposed to be interpreted very personally from listener to listener, representing what’s their true love to them and hopefully stay with people and stand the test of time beyond hypes.” – Chris Avantgarde

Charlie Crown is no newcomer to the scene but “Loner” is a debut single of his. To clarify, Crown is the artist formerly known as Flapo, a producer who experienced considerable success releasing music on imprints like Dim Mak and PRMD. With his new moniker, Charlie Crown is looking to express his creativity in ways he never has before.

“Loner is a track about feeling disconnected from other people and ultimately the world following the demise of a relationship. It looks to examine the moments at which paths diverge and how we reconcile the emotional weight of such a shift and attempt to create new energy in moving forward.” – Charlie Crown

Start your week off right with Foxglovesthe 5-track debut EP from emerging producer Fluencee. Each of the singles is a different expression of artistry and originality but my personal favorite has got to be “Find Someone Else.” The LA-based Fluencee explains that “This record is a long time coming,” explaining that it contains themes ranging from “bullying, loss of love, and a number of other motifs that have shaped who I am today.” Dive in below:

Dope indie track from an artist that I’ve just discovered through a friend. kordz isn’t yet a household name but his music has the quality of an artist well beyond his years. Here’s what he had to say about his new single “This track started out as a simple melody that I discovered during improvising on the piano. I found it fascinating because the harmony seemed to come directly out of the melody; they weren’t two separate things. The sounds of breaking tree branches and crackling leaves are ripping through a chorale that’s echoing from a church, far away. The chorale sounds like its coming from far away, while the sounds of the nature seem to happen almost inside of your ears. It created a very strange atmosphere” – kordz

Rising star Duskus releases “Longtime,” a new original via his own Kaleido imprint. His ascension to stardom has been a gradual but consistent one via his involvement with San Holo’s bitbird label but his fresh single is a great indicator of the vast skillset this young man possesses. Stream it below:

Riddim might not be my favorite genre but it’s interesting to see how “traditional” celebrities express their creativity through differing mediums. Dani Thorne’s DJ moniker is COM3T, a high-flying, explosive energy driven force that most recently stunned the masses at Lost Lands. Her new single “Metamorphosis” hits hard, both in sound and in the feels. Bass aplenty and a message of staying the course shine bright as COM3T continues her ascension into modern DJ lore.
