Balancing a handful of creative efforts, White Lights combines his dexterous talents to create music that is universal and original. Between creating music and designing digital graphics, the NYC-based artist is building a treasure trove of visions. His current vision board is a textured, lo-fi collage of minimalist sounds and frequencies. Coming to life in the form of his freshest single “Body Trap,” the revolutionary finds inspiration from emotional artists like Kid Cudi. The first look into his debut album NUMBSKULL, “Body Trap” is a song for the melancholy 20-something. Minimal and modern, this track is a window that peers into the yin and yang of artistry. An instant classic that mimics the shadows of life, “Body Trap” is poetry and prose with a vulnerable energy. 

DLJ and Galvanic have joined forces once again for another radically chill single, “Dead Man.” Their third collaboration since the release of “The End,” the duo shares an undeniable artistic chemistry. A marriage between lo-fi hip-hop beats and alternative vocals, “Dead Man” is a succeedingly earnest effort that bridges the gap between mental health and music. Relatable and deeply empathetic, DLJ and Galvanic surveys pessimism and pain through a soft-sounding resonance. As both artists continue building the foundation for their respective solo projects, their musical synchronicity works like a yin and yang. Listen to “Dead Man” today and expect more from DLJ and Galvanic soon.

Coming out of Brooklyn, New York organic-electronic duo ANIMÁL delivers their refreshing debut single “Let Me Down.” Comprised of Jack Murphy and Brady Perrigo, the city-dwelling twosome have been making music together since high school. Their sound pallet is a focused blend of jam-band cadences with electronic overtones. Inspired by RATATAT and Explosions In The Sky, ANIMÁL’s rocktronic sound is both familiar and eccentric. Co-produced and mastered by pluko, “Let Me Down” is the lead single to their forthcoming album Flight– an album expected to establish them as champions of live-electronic music. This freshman single is an electrifying treat with cinematic aromas. Feathery layers of synths and electric guitars collide into delicate vocal chops. An all encompassing sound, “Let Me Down” marks the beginning of a fruitful career for ANIMÁL. 

The 24-year-old artist/producer Bearson is back with his new single “Feelings” feat. HART. The Norweigian has developed his sounds all around the world, racking up accomplishments like being featured in EA Sports FIFA, streaming over 100 million times on Spotify, and so much more. 

His newest single “Feelings” is one of his best songs to-date – a heart-fluttering tune that depicts the too-well-known struggle of trying to open up to someone about your feelings when you’re hurting. HART’s delicate vocals mesh perfectly with Bearson’s charged, melodic production.

Dallas-based producer capshun is making a statement with the release of his debut EP OKAMI. Inspired by his affinity for Southeast Asian culture, the EP encapsulates a myriad of emotions and sounds, solidifying capshun’s bright future as an artist. From the picturesque “Rage” to the effortlessly beautiful vibes in “Destiny,” capshun’s OKAMI EP has something for everyone. 

“Okami is an alternate name for Ametersu, who, in Japanese Shinto religion is seen as the goddess of the sun and the universe. There is a japanese Folk tale where Okami walks the earth as a wolf deity and brings miracles and basically saves Japan from destruction. I wanted to create a world that brings the elements of the goddess to life through sound.” – capshun
