Los Angeles based house producer/dj Bobby Nourmand had a huge year last year 2017 with support from big media outlets such Mixmag, DJ Mag, and Pete Tong on BBC Radio, alongside a number of chart-topping accolades across Spotify, Shazam, Hype Machine etc.

To start off 2018, Bobby is unveiling the launch of his own label DITN with the release of his “SUBTERRANEAN” EP. The EP marks him moving into a darker sounding territory with a focus on dark bassline and hard hitting drums, it’s still soulful and moving house music but with an edge that slants toward a techno sound.

Bristol duo Paragon (Tom Wheeler & Sam Shotaka) have with only four releases made their mark on the airways and in the clubs, gaining support from Spotify (Fresh Finds, New Music Friday UK), BBC Radio 1 (Toddla T), 1Xtra, Triple J (Hitlist), Kiss, Capital and many more. The duo incorporates elements of UK garage, house, drum and bass, dubstep and grime in their sound.

Now they team up with vocalist David Boomah (who is perhaps best known for his work with UK drum and bass artists such as Shy FX and Rene LaVice) for new single “Get Involved” (drops tomorrow February 15th via Paragon Sound/[PIAS]) which is a massive soul-infused bassed up house tune that has all the makings of being a serious party destroyer.

“David’s vocals just cut through anything as heavy and dark as you can make. Perfect for the style, he gets the message through and lifts it higher on each verse and chorus. Musically its about tension, release, and anticipation. You know what’s coming, enjoy the journey and then when it hits it gives you that rush and keeps you hooked for the next drop”

Four Tet started a massive Spotify playlist last year that now is comprised of 339 songs. Due to Donald Trump’s recent travel ban for citizens of 7 countries, the 10 latest tracks on the playlist are from countries whose artists are now banned from the US – musicians include Rahim AlHaj (Iraq), Martik (Iran), Omar Souleyman (Syria), Kourosh Yaghmaei (Iran), Naji Barakat (Yemen), Haussein Shiekh and Radio Mogadisco Swahili Singers (Somalia), Abdullah Kershi and Ahmed Sherif (Somalia), and the Dinka people of Abyei (Sudan). The London based producer has announced that he will continue to add tracks by musicians now banned from the US.

New Zealand artist So Below has beein hailed as the queen of goth pop and has been poised to be one of the artists to watch in 2017. She has already received support from outlets such as i-D, Neon Gold and HillyDilly etc. and she’s racked up streams on Spotify since being part of the New Music Friday playlist.

Her dark electro pop offering “Hard” receives a remix done by 80’s electro-pop master Memoryy (who also happens to be the composer of the music on the “Chelsea Handler” show on Netflix). Memoryy transforms the vibe from the original version of the track to a more infectious and danceable, synthfilled groove.

Previously only available in a radio edit on Spotify, here’s the album version of the excellent new single “Caught In A Riot” from Swedish producer Andreas Tilliander. “Caught In A Riot” is lifted off the new album “Show” that’s being released on May 6th by Adrian Recordings.

“…stuffed with irresistible rhythms, catchy melodies and a sterling production, a blend of techno, dub, pop, acid and house. The king of Swedish electronic music is back on the throne!”
