Swiss songwriter/vocalist/producer HUGOwho is back following the success of his 2014 debut, the “I Am Not Hugo” EP with a fresh comeback single in “Holding On.” The first track to be lifted off his upcoming ‘Another’ EP, “Holding On” features a powerful combination of original synths and pop catchiness accentuated by HUGOwho’s stellar vocals. Speaking about the track and the upcoming EP, HUGOwho explains: “My music should be an honest experience in sound and emotion, simple, without hiding behind anything. I really just got crazy with my vision and my emotions. My life changed a lot since I moved to London because all of the sudden I was alone, disconnected, but it made me feel and think a lot about myself and my music. It’s not about playing some crazy chords and be like super fancy about it. I want my music to be simple and powerful. in order that as many people can relate to the feeling. ‘Holding On’ is a track about loving someone too hard while realizing to let go of everything in order to grow individually and together.”

LOVING this new one from ​holywater and Cruel Youth, the musical duo of Teddy Sinclair and husband & artist/producer Willy Moon. The irresistible new single features whimsical lyrics from Sinclair, who previously worked on Madonna’s album Rebel Heart and co-wrote Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better.

Alexander Lewis & Brasstracks teamed up for a dope rendition of Kanye West’s 2010 hit “All of the Lights” and it’s got the makings of a fan-favorite. “I felt like ‘All of the Lights’ was perfect for a brass cover,” Lewis said in reference to his newest collaboration. “One day, I had a couple hours to spare so I recorded that main motif idea and did some production/structure to begin the tune, sent it to Ivan [of Brasstracks] and asked him if he was down. He literally sent me the trumpets the next day.” Dig in and enjoy!

A huge premiere for us here today coming from Spanish producer/dj UNER who is at the forefront of melodic house/techno with recent releases on labels such as Suara, Bedrock, Culprit, Saved Records and Sasha’s imprint Last Night On Earth.

His latest track is forthcoming on US label Sol Selectas (spearheaded by American artist Sabo) and it’s part of their “Summer Sol II” compilation which drops tomorrow June 21st.

The track is entitled “The Sound of Sand” and features the vocal offerings of Ido Segal, on it we hear UNER going off into a slightly deeper and more warm balearic direction but rest assured if you’re a fan of his melodic sound you won’t be disappointed.

BANKS embodies everything that is right in music right now; her unique and passionate approach to pop music is very much her own and has opened a door for aspiring artists that don’t exactly fit the mainstream structure. The lead single off her latest album, “Fuck With Myself,” tells the story of putting herself first in a toxic relationship.
London production trio Ivy Lab slows down the already downtempo record and adds heavy synth and bass to emphasize the intended emotions of the record.

After catching the eyes and ears of the electronic music community with their bass driven lullaby debut “zZz,” it has been a privilege watching the artistic evolution of Dutch duo DROELOE. Their latest “Jump,” is a percussion-driven pop production complimented by the charming vocals of Nevve.

Out now via Monstercat.

Hesitated from categorizing this EP as EDM but I don’t think that takes away from how fun it is. As much as there needs to be a healthy dose of weird, avant-garde music to feed the masses, duos like CHIMES are making good ol’ dance music with great success. Their five-track Ninety Four EP is sure to be a welcome addition to your easy listening or pre-game. Check it out below or on Spotify here.

An impressive two-track EP emerges from rising act Eyes Everywhere and we’re happy to have the premiere. Consisting of two tracks titled “Talk,” and “Cold Bug Out,” this release follows a massive 2016 that saw the duo release on esteemed labels like Desert Hearts, Sweat It Out, and Box of Cats. This year, they’ve already teamed up with Golf Clap on a collaboration (“Bout That”) out now via Toolroom, that debuted as Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune on Radio 1.Having already played globally recognized events like Holy Ship, Camp Bisco and HARD Summer, the boys are focusing on making music that features more organic sounds of techno and house – this EP is a great start!
