Sub Caesar drop fierce soundtrack to light up your speakers with a futuristic winner called ‘Do You Like Our Owl?’

With possibly the most rampaging and mysterious single around as we speak, Sub Caesar certainly shakes off any unhelpful crumbs of self-doubt away for good on ‘Do You Like Our Owl?

Sub Caesar is a Dutch indie electronic music producer who makes those deliciously processed gems that are always giving your body that groove to survive this odd world.

The title refers to a scene from the classic sci-fi cult movie ‘Blade Runner’, when Deckard (Harrison Ford) first meets Rachel at Tyrell Corporation HQ. An artificial owl is featured in the lobby. “Do you like our owl?,” Rachel asks. The mini dialogue that follows is also featured on the Blade Runner score by Vangelis, that I must have played a million times.” ~ Sub Caesar

Opening up the volt with a truly throat convulsing metamorphosis that shall take your breath away into a chamber of mystique on this Sub Caesar classic bone-rattling experience, this is a turn on and repeat moment to treasure.

But my true love at that time was with bands like Pink Floyd, Genesis and Electric Light Orchestra. Space opera’s, symphonic and progressive rock. My father was a professional player in a symphony orchestra. So I also heard a lot of classical music when I was young. Even now I can not resist adding strings to a track. I love how they glue everything together, and how you can create so many atmospheres and emotions with them.” ~ Sub Caesar

Do You Like Our Owl?‘ from the mightily skilled Dutch electronic music producer Sub Caesar shows us the artificial world and then takes it all away from us in a split second. With expert sniper proficient production precision, this shall open up your eyes and gradually take you to a tornado-like dance floor that is filled with whoever you want inside.

If you need to wake up to what is actually going on. This is the soundtrack to glide cautiously inside.

Glitchy art rock meets alt urban pop in Jacobi.e’s latest single, Rcv

Since his 2020 debut, experimentalism has been at the forefront of Jacobi.e’s alt bedroom pop sound. With his aptly dark, melodically off-kilter and tumultuously glitchy first single of 2022, Rcv, the Jamaican American artist and producer, currently residing in LA, fused his rock background with contemporary flavours of the originators, Dominic Fike, Kanye and Yeek.

While some artists manage to make exploring alternative sounds a contrived act of pretension, Jacobi.e instantly affirms that the alchemy came organically through his affinity for a plethora of genres. Pulling all of the contrasting textures together, his vocals are a sticky-sweet vocal point in the wavy track that stands as a testament to his flair as a producer that continues to amass gravitas.

RCV is now available to stream on Spotify.

The Time Meddler – Folks Want Blood: The Tranquil Trip-Hop Enigma Returns

P.F feels those toxins brewing in his veins on ‘Omega Crystal’

Taken from his recent 12-track release called ‘ULTRA OMEGA CRYSTAL‘, P.F takes us deep inside the feeling that could change your whole mind forever if you let it inside you too deeply with ‘Omega Crystal‘.

P.F is a mysteriously masked indie music producer and Hip hop artist who has kept his true identity hidden from the world so far until he feels the time is right.

Drugs are your friends until you wake up, not knowing where you are. The Crystal shaped pill made me feel alive in the room full of nothing.” ~ P.F

At his hybrid brilliance best, that shines a small light through the shadows that are mightily abundant, P.F guides us through the hallways that are strewn with lost figures who are looking for a sense of purpose in this harsh world.

Omega Crystal‘ from indie music producer and Hip hop artist P.F is a real life soundtrack from current times by a soul who is looking for his path. Seeking the right journey in a haze of smoke, confusion, noise and a different mindset from opening his mind up to a whole new galaxy, this should be a wake up call for anyone who doesn’t believe that there is something wrong in the Matrix.

Feeling sane is the key to all contentness and the journey to finding the keys should be the mission of us all.

Prepare to be torn from passive slumber with Cielo Pordomingo’s orchestral alt-electro feat of world music, Wake Up

Here to tear us from our jaded slumber with her spiritual synthetics is the alt-electro trailblazer, Cielo Pordomingo, with her latest single, Wake Up.

‘Enlivening’ scarcely cuts into the alchemy that the composer, singer, and producer used to reflect her soul in the orchestrally heightened single. It’s Europop meets Depeche Mode via Bond soundtrack with a classical chamber outro; need we say anymore? If we want to do Cielo Pordomingo justice as a lyricist, definitely.

Wake Up is far more than your average cry to people letting their lives pass them by. Pordomingo practically takes you by the hand to guide you through your awakening while addressing the problem of our tendency to waste existence by branding it as just another day. At this point, if she started a cult, I’d jump right into it.

Wake Up is now available to stream on Spotify.

Yarsha exposes the hypocrisy of reality in his harsh electro-pop earworm, Run Coward

The Zurich-based Italian alt-electro originator, Yarsha, has followed his seductively eccentric debut single, Do you wanna dance, with the even more gloriously existentialist alt-electro pop single, Run Coward.

Under anyone else’s orchestration, Run Coward would be a cold and harsh track. Yet, with the inclusion of his personably playful vocals on the Powerman 5000-Esque analog synths, Run Coward doesn’t just hit the rhythmic spot. It tempts some serotonin to spit across the synapses too.

While the haunted synths and nasty electro-industrial discord set the caustic tone to reflect the insidiousness of the rife injustice on our planet that is more akin to the Christian depiction of hell, the cuttingly contemporary lyrics extend the gift of resonant antagonism. We all need more affirmations that the world is messed up beyond rhyme or reason. Especially when they are as infectiously upbeat as Run Coward, and the rest of the world is at work gaslighting us into believing that our fatalism isn’t a sign of sanity.

Here is what Yarsha candidly had to say about his latest release:

“This world is f…ed up. It’s full of hypocrisy on every level. I wrote this song in 2015, mentioning the war in Ukraine when almost nobody knew it was happening. Nobody knows that the Dalai Lama’s son was kidnapped by the Chinese government. Still, it was in many newspapers and tv shows. Assange exposed just the reality and cruelty of facts, and the US is treating him exactly like Putin treats his enemies.

I’m not finger-pointing them; I’m finger-pointing me. I’m the coward. When I see and know all this, what do I do? Nothing. I’m watching Netflix, playing music, and having fun. It’s a struggle to live in such a world: can we do anything to stop this? Or is it better to just run from it and enjoy the good time that pure luck gave us?”

Run Coward was officially released on July 8th. Hear it on SoundCloud.

KJ Rogers is totally ready if the feeling is reciprocated on ‘Love Too Hard HBOTL’ (feat. Justin Charles)

Wishing for the sweet love to reach a whole new stratosphere entirely, KJ Rogers senses that this might be something rather special if the two hearts join as one at the same time on ‘Love Too Hard HBOTL(feat. Justin Charles).

KJ Rogers aka Kenneth Jesse Rogers IV is a prodigious New Jersey, USA-born indie RnB singer-songwriter and music producer who is the son of House music legend, CeCe Rogers.

At the age of 5, KJ started playing the piano and by the age of 15, he started producing his own music.” ~ KJ Rogers

With his eyes locked on and ready for more, KJ Rogers sings with heightened passion that endears one to his mission to be with that incredible human who needs to know how he truly feels about their spiritual connection.

His unique sound comes from a rich experience of working and being mentored by his dad, and other acquaintances such as Marshal Jefferson and Free da Dreamer from the popular Hip Hop duo Entouch.” ~ KJ Rogers

Love Too Hard HBOTL(feat. Justin Charles) from New Jersey, USA-born indie RnB singer-songwriter and music producer KJ Rogers is a hugely romantic single that shows us the frustration when you want to be with someone so badly. With lyrics that show us deeply into this story about feeling the love, but sensing that it’s a fruitless chase if he can’t find the correlation quickly.

Sometimes you need to take a step back, so that your ideal lover may show the commitment needed.
