Acid house and hip hop converge in Tommy Legendz single, 2000’s, taken from his debut EP, From Home. With two decades between now and the era he captures in his standout track, plenty of millennials will appreciate the nostalgia hit that 2000’s comes with.
The playful polyphonic synths paired with the steady 808 snares creates a captivating platform for Legendz’ vocals that come with the same luxe style as East Coast rap icons such as Nas and Jay Z.
With the fearless experimentalism found in his debut, the artist’s moniker is incredibly likely to become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Tommy Legendz latest single is now available to stream via Spotify.
If you’re sick of superficial love songs, strap yourselves in for the impassioned sincerity in Jamskillet’s latest alt-pop track, Waterfalls.
On the basis of Waterfalls, Jamskillet has the talent it takes to reach the same heights as Mac Miller and Post Malone; his intoxicatingly authentic mash of urban and alternative elements resonates like no other. Thanks to the striking lyricism, intricate cold guitar hooks and dark trappy beats, you’d need a serious concussion to forget the earworm of a melody in Waterfalls.
You can check out the cinematic official music video to Waterfalls that premiered on July 4th via YouTube.
Manchester-based alt-indie electropop artist and producer Rorys Aspect has released his arresting EP, Lifesaver, featuring the standout synth-pop track, Social Anxiety, which comes with spacey 80s vibes and the most candid lyricism you will hear this year.
With shoegazey guitars and just as much reverb on the vocals, the raw nature of the lyricism loses some of its sting in the choral trippy tones that are prolific in tracks from Manchester’s greats such as the Stone Roses, the Chameleons and the Charlatans.
The self-produced track is unequivocal proof that Manchester has another revolutionary in its midst. As a fellow Mancunian, it is all too refreshing to hear an indie artist not falling into the process of assimilation.
You can check out Rorys Aspect’s latest EP by heading over to Spotify.
The highly accoladed artist and electronic composer Nathan Maurice has started his new project under the moniker Lorenz System. His latest release is the 4-track EP Sonne, which delivers deconstructed downtempo EDM beats with ambient lo-fi hip hop kicks.
The perfect introduction to his ambiently absorbing electronica style is the lead track, Yobuko which starts by spilling choral guitar tones before the beat kicks in and carries you through the cathartically sun-kissed instrumental soundscape. The soul that emanates from the release is practically unparalleled in the realms of ambient electronica; vocals are surplus to requirement with the evocative pull of the melodies.
Lorenz System’s debut EP is now available to stream via Spotify.

For his latest feat of hyper disco-pop, Netherlands-based songwriter and producer Tom Tom Park teamed up with vocalist Disc Eyes to create a vibrant funk-riding hit that surpasses energetic and moves into the realms of mania – in the best possible way.
The dancey beats, dizzying synths and funky basslines are reminiscent of what you will find on Daft Punk and the Weeknd records. But Adore Me comes with an even deeper sense of soul which is where the influence from artists such as Donna Summer comes into play.
Given that Tom Tom Park has already received praise from one-half of the Scissor Sisters (Jake Shears), he scarcely needs our approval. Yet, notably, his boldly eccentric approach to disco deserves to be met with rapturous acclaim internationally; digging authenticity out of disco in 2021 is no easy feat.
