An ephemeral bass house hit, longstoryshort returns with guns blazing in his newest single “Believe,” out now via AWAL. Transcending genre with each and every release, longstoryshort refuses to write the same song over and over again and his latest release continues to follows that trend. From the onset of “Believe,” longstoryshort entrances listeners with mesmerizing vocal chops atop of budding layers of oscillating bass. 

Formidable talent OTR returns with a fresh new single called “Drive” featuring Sydney-based synthpop standout Panama. His third original work of 2019 follows in the footsteps of standout singles “Stay” with WYNNE and hit lead single “Heart” ft. shallou, which reached the #1 chart position on SiriusXM Chill for two weeks. “Drive” excels at giving voice to the inevitable frustration of artists trying to find their own style, an understated love song flecked with the faintest trace of house music. The aerospace engineer-turned-producer has built a reputation for making music from the heart, stating that he “wanted to build a world around movement and conflict created by this sort of momentum of sound.” There’s a rare and re mix of austerity and optimism, fragility and determination. Dive in and let the music move you:

Not to confused with a certain masked French DJ championing house music, Hidden Face has been adding to the curiosity behind his identity for a short time now with his unique, progressive sound and immersive live performances. His goal is to create an atmosphere like no other and he’s ready to captivate your mind with his latest single “Perspectives“. Enchanting and minimalistic, “Perspectives” is available now via Armada Electronic Elements.

Miami-based keytar aficionado and producer extraordinaire Kill Paris is back with his new single “Played Out” feat. Dutch Robinson. While it’s not necessarily easy to predict what a new song from KP might sound like, it’s safe to assume that he’ll be challenging the status quo. His last release “Venus Fly Trap” was a hard-hitting festival banger but for his newest, Kill Paris and Dutch Robinson have combined for a versatile track that highlights the best of both their artistic abilities. Robinson with his vintage, stirring vocals and Kill Paris with his glitchy melodies and funky vibes.. what a combo!

Released on Friday, Sonogyph Pt. 1 has given Kotek the opportunity to “experiment with new sounds, styles, and skills” that he’s been developing since the beginning of his career. His newest EP includes his two latest singles “Codex” and “Communication,” the latter of which earned an 8/10 on Mixmag (August Edition). The Canadian producer has effortlessly pieced together a diverse EP, out now on Westwood Recordings, that’s uniquely him. If you’re a fan of sound design and eclectic production (think G Jones, EPROM, etc.), then this will be right up your alley.

On the heels of her massively successful debut single “Crush,” breakout star Tessa Violet completes her premiere EP Bad Ideas (Act One) with a handful of stellar remixes and we’ve got our favorite here today. Bubbly and bedroom-pop reminiscent, Le Youth’s take on “Crush” is a dreamy treat, chock-full of lush synths and bright melodies.

“So stoked for people to hear these! I’ve never had remixes of my songs before so wasn’t sure how I’d feel but Le Youth and Viceroy created amazing new takes on my songs that I’m SO thrilled about. They both feel perfect for summer too! And just in time for my summer headline tour that starts this week!” – Tessa Violet
