Dyme Hit the Ground Running with their Pensive Alt Synth Pop Debut “Wht.Yth”

There are very few artists who can hit you with such an immediate pensive veracity from the first time of listening as the British Alt Pop collective Dyme. Their debut single “Wht.Yth” gave no indication that they were fresh from their inception, instead the four-piece bands synergistically tight sound screamed maturity. And with the tracks which followed Wht.Yth their commercial potential continues to develop through their enviable ability to create the perfect hooks.

Dyme went beyond creating the usual dark and moody Synth Pop tonality with Wht.Yth along with the rest of their tracks. Instead, they poured raw organic emotion into the synth-led mix to give their soundscape a compelling edge with piercingly mesmeric melodies.

When it comes to slick Hip Hop production, there aren’t many who can match the pitch-perfect fluidity of SauceDaEngineer. His latest mix Chill Wave Where You From is set up to pack the emotive punch.

With the same approach as N.W.A. the vocals attack the injustice in the high levels of homicide in America as the gun shots and news footage merge with the polished beats. By the time the track fades to a close your left sobered by the heavy sentiment behind the single at the same time as appreciating the prodigal flow SauceDaEngineer possesses when it comes to creating viscerally raw Hip Hop tracks.

Soak Up Some Intricately Rhythmic Instrumental Funk with The Data Waves’ EP “Lady in Red”

For their latest EP “Lady In Red” The Data Waves served up one of the most viscerally hypnotic offerings of genre-defiance we’ve heard in a long time. The instrumental Funk band have the rare talent of striking you with an instantaneously arrestive soundscape which leaves you with little choice whether their soundscape will resonate.

There is no need for lyrics or vocals to lace their tracks with emotion, instead, the emotivity is palpable through the up-vibe melodies which carry pure anthemic good vibes as the tracks progress and contort organically. Each one of the instrumentalists in the Data Waves is a master of intricate rhythmic command, but I’m fairly sure that the sax player sold his soul to the devil.

Paul Alty Drops His Latest Electronica Album “Behind the Clock 2 – Somewhere Between the Earth and the Stars”

Paul Alty’s latest album Album “Behind the Clock 2 – Somewhere Between the Earth and the Stars” is a work of raw cinematic mesmerism. Each of the tracks from the album will lead you further down the aural rabbit hole.

Yet, at the same time you’re also treated to the magnetically sonic energy which has been weaved into the hypnotically transient tracks. Each of the singles run through with an extended length to help you to immerse yourself even deeper into the tracks; if you’re looking for an instant hit of catharsis, look no further.

Kamas’ Prodigally Hot Hip Hop Drop “On the Way”

Austin, Texas up and coming Rap artist Kamas created the perfect aural storm with his latest drop “On the Way”.

Rather than choosing to run through with an average Hip Hop mix Kamas poured plenty of flavour into the beat through the infusion of a Dancehall rhythm with EDM beats finished with the perfect production courtesy of breeshy.

The unpredictable progression to On the Way keeps your attention from the teasing prelude to the fade out with plenty of switch ups in between which are perfectly matched by Kamas’ relentless vocal flows and his arrestive harmonies.

Scottish Alt Rock Outfit Silvercoast Kick off 2019 With their Nostalgically Anthemic Hit “Dreamers”

The 5-piece Scottish powerhouse Silvercoast kicked off 2019 by dropping their anthemically energetic Alt Rock track “Dreamers (Young At Heart)”. Anyone with a penchant for the Pop Punk gems of the 00’s are sure to appreciate the sticky-sweet melodies contained within Dreamers which accompany the high-octane emotion which is poured into the single via the vocals from Aaron Murray. With Dreamers, you’re not only treated to colossal guitar riffs, but intricate progressions which wouldn’t sound out of place in an Interpol track. A comparison to Daniel Kessler isn’t an easy one for me to make, but with the alchemically powerful single Silvercoast cooked up, no amount of praise would be high enough.

Blaz3 – Best Me: Lyrically Deep, Tonally Sweet Trap

Kick off a Trap track with a Rick & Morty sample and you’ve got our attention. Aside from Blaz3 and Jarrod’s exceptional taste in cartoons, they also have the talent to put together an intricately sweet Trap melody as they proved with their latest collaboration “Best Me”.

Instead of running the track through with a tonality as harsh as the sniping lyricism, the notes from the keys were kept light pertaining to a sense of innocence which is then contrasted by the angst written into the lyrics. The lyrics to Best Me are sure to resonate with anyone who has ever felt the sense of satisfaction of growth which attracts those who we’ve outgrown.
