Los Angeles based producer Boh Doran takes on influences ranging from 90’s indie, soul and r’n’b blending those with instant dancey pop hooks and stunning vocals. She has been hailed as an artist to watch by media outlets such as Glamour, Vogue Italia, The Huffington Post etc. and her debut solo single “White Knuckles” was the 7th most viral song on Spotify’s global charts. New single “Warrior” is an empowering song with anthemlike qualities where the softer vocals are interspersed with the booming track.

“This song is about facing opposition in daily life with strength. i’m currently 38 weeks pregnant and am still releasing music despite the archaic cultural message that soon to be mothers should be hidden. where are they, we don’t see them especially in music for a reason.”

Born and raised in the ethnically diverse region of Reunion Island, NASAYA is the rising musician turning heads across the globe. Drawing influence from his upbringing, NASAYA’s musical vision is prompted by African, Indian, European, Malagsy, and Chinese cultures. Combining the sounds of his homestead, this indie-electronic aficindo creates sound pallets that colorful and culturally sound. Quickly garnering attention from music critics and fans alike, NASAYA teams up with Tim Atlas, former contestant on The Voice, to unveil their collaborative single “PLASTIC STRAW.” This funky cut is a metaphor for toxic relationships that refuse to biodegrade, just like a plastic straw. Tim’s signature vocals shimmer atop NASAYA’s groovy guitar plucks and invigorating electronic production. An exquisite showcase of artistic collaboration and interconnectivity, “PLASTIC STRAW” is a milestone release for NASAYA.

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:

Neo Noir is an LA-based future music collective based around producers Bradley Allan & Greg Ogan that was formed back in 2017 as a passion project to create music collaborations with talented singers that share their artistic vision.

“Taking It’s Toll” is their third release of 2019 and it’s the second release on their own, newly formed label Music Noir.

The track is introspective and centers around a crumbling relationship and the damaging effects that can have on those involved. The emotion-filled vocals come courtesy of Toronto based artist Nate Kreiswirth. Although the single might sound like a hybrid of genres, it focuses on indie pop/indie electro with horns, 808’s and vintage sounding synths exploring the soundscape.

Widely acknowledged French dj/producer/singer Jean Tonique has dropped hits on Yuksek’s Partyfine label in the past and now he announces a brand new mini-album “sunny side up” via his own label Tonique Records.

Leading up to the release he boasts a video for the smooth yacht rock influenced track “like you” that draws on his favorite indie-pop moments and also gives a special nod to Mac DeMarco.

“”like you” is about finding one’s soul mate, but most of all, it
is a song which makes you want to drive around in a convertible by the sea”.

Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, producer Young Franco dropped some absolute fire. This latest release “About this Thing” features vocals from Scrufizzer. The track is as bouncy as anything I have ever heard. The lyricism from Scrufizzer is super unique and gives the song a real feel good vibe.
