Glassio is reflective, alt dance-pop duo consisting of Sam Rad and Charlie P, two producer-songwriters with a mutual love for applying their singer-songwriter state of mind to genre-bending dance music. “Search & Destroy”was a happy accident that came shortly after election night and a vision of re-contextualizing Iggy Pop’s Vietnam war song with a soulful and melancholy spin to reflect the current feeling of uncertainty and fear across the globe.

Norwegian tropical house producer Matoma teams up with LA singer Gia on a new single called “Heart Won’t Forget.” Firing off from the get-go with a whistled-hook, the lush pop gem rides close on GIA’s slick vocals as she nostalgically recalls a former lover.

Teflon Sega is a new enigmatic electronic R&B project that calls to mind early The Weeknd. Their new single “Beretta Lake” is a collaborative effort with fellow rising act SAINt JHN. The ethereal, moody track blooms with echoed, siren synths and a haunting vocal that slurs to open with “drinking all night but I swear I been sober / we ain’t talked in a minute but I’m gonna head over.”

Rising Los Angeles based producer/singer Best Night Ever (Tyler Armes) makes indie pop music with an experimental approach, with stylistic production tips to Flume and Goldroom. Best Night Ever is his solo project and this week he unveils a new single “Caught Up.” All proceeds from the sale of the track go towards benefitting mental health charities The Trevor Project and Kids Help Phone in Canada so press play and support a good cause.

British songwriter and producer Henry Green reveals the title track “Real” from his upcoming EP via Akira Records. Fans of The XX and London Grammar will happily lose themselves in the ambient soundscapes and soft, sultry vocals.

Los Angeles duo courtship.’s new single carries a powerful message that’s relevant given the current cultural climate. “Love For Everyone” is a buoyant Empire of the Sun influenced song that carries the plea for universal self-acceptance and tolerance and ‘love for everyone.’

Los Angeles duo FRENSHIP first stormed the airwaves with “Capsize” featuring vocalist Emily Warren. Months later, FRENSHIP introduces STINT’s remix of the hit single who puts a refreshing alternative, tropical sound to an already hooky pop tune.

Be sure to catch FRENSHIP live on their remaining West Coast tour dates including a homecoming show in LA later this week on the 18th at The Fonda.
