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.

BOT, mainly known for his role as co-founder of Maincourse, and VNNSA for her releases on Dirtybird, are proud to unveil their Creatures EP signed to Treasure Finger’s Psycho Disco! label. The two creative forces combine for a high-quality EP and we’ve got the premiere for the lead single, “Creatures.” BOT describes the song as “a stripped down dark but energetic track,” while VNSSA delivers a vocal performance worthy of her rising reputation. Check it out below:

Interesting new single from Mod Sun is out now on Bella Thorne‘s Filthy Fangs imprint. “Burning Up” blends and distorts genre boundaries, showcasing the wild creativity that encompasses Mod Sun whose entrepreneurial spirit seems to know no bounds. Catch Mod Sun on his forthcoming Burning Up tour. Full dates and tickets can be found here.

This song came out of me like vomit. I’m not at all glorifying the idea of making songs fast….the process is important. BUT, I am extremely adamant about letting the song take me places instead of forcing it to go somewhere with me. “Burning Up” is a perfect example of just that. The vocals + lyrics came out at the same time + Within 10 minutes the entirety of that song was created + ended. I love that feeling. Music is magic + u can’t tame magic.” – Mod Sun

Bonomo – Tomorrow

Sep 11 2018

‘Tomorrow’ is the song that started it all! The first song I had written after moving to NYC to pursue music. It opened the door for me as an artist and is a tribute and testament to the struggles of following ones passions.” – Adam Bonomo

Well done Mr. Bonomo. It’s easy to empathize with the motivation and emotion behind this song.
