Bentley Robles – Cardiac: Meet Your New Queer Pop Icon

“Cardiac” is the latest euphoria-laced track to drop from breaking Pop artist Bentley Robles who hasn’t failed to amass plenty of hype since they made their debut in 2019. When you experience the wild energy in their bold and daring pop earworms, you’ll quickly understand why.

As a fellow queer, I can’t even express how in awe of Bentley Robles I am for the unapologetic expression contained in Cardiac. He provocatively owns his sexuality and invites listeners to embrace their own while simultaneously pulling you deeper in with the sultry grooves which come with a side serving of sticky-sweet romanticism.

Many artists fail to find the balance to feed you nothing but good vibes and grooves, Bentley Robles discernibly didn’t. Straight from the intro, you’ll be hooked into the anthemically-charged production.

With their transfixingly inviting vocals and massive sound, Bentley Robles’ name belongs at the top of festival bills. Remember those? They’ll be back eventually, I’m sure, until then, the NYC underground Pop artist will continue to dominate the airwaves. He’s the Queer Pop icon we never knew we needed, move over Peaches.

You can check out Cardiac via Spotify.

Aeropryme – Closer: Bass-Driven Retro Wave

The fact that dancefloors are inaccessible right now got a whole lot sadder after we heard the colossal new drop “Closer” from up and coming artist Aeropryme.

The entrancingly bass-driven feat of retro wave threw us right back to the time when Pendulum was dominating the airwaves, while simultaneously unravelling as an ecstasy-dripping treat for any fans of the Human League.

Yet, you’ve never heard anything quite like Closer, with pops of 80s nostalgia, a progressive nature from start to finish and the masterful production skills of Pandora Nightz, it’s an unforgettable mix that you’ll want to give repeat attention to.

You can check out Aeropryme’s track which dropped on September 26th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.

Unite in Solitude with Icecolddiamond’s Emotionally Blistering Cold Wave Track “Shattered”

Barcelona-based Electronica artist and producer Icecolddiamond released their intensely emotive latest single “Shattered” on September 18th. We’re not crying, you are.

The darkly atmospheric release offers lush reverb for you to swim in during the intro, but once the momentum starts to build in the darkly mesmeric mix, it’s compelling enough to make you throw away any inhibitions you had when you hit play. Even if it doesn’t catch you on the dancefloor. Therein lies the true beauty of Shattered, the track was written at the start of lockdown in complete isolation while Icecolddiamon was detached from reality. Their emotion fell into the soundscape undilutedly to make Shattered the ultimate club mix when there are no clubs, just solitude. Okay, we are crying.

Cyrus has unleashed an entrancing attack on Drops of Jupiter by Train

With their latest track, up and coming producer Cyrus has entrancingly attacked the iconic hit “Drops of Jupiter by Train.

Drops of Jupiter is one of those perfectly nostalgic hits which may not commonly appear on Playlists, but when the track catches us by chance, it hits us with waves euphoria inspired by the melodic momentum in the all-consuming Indie Rock track. With Cyrus’ remix, there’s even more high-vibe energy to soak up and the track has become even more trancey, inventively glitchy and high-octane than ever.

The New Jersey-based artist and producer well and truly made the track their own and amassed plenty of hype by doing so with their mould-breaking approach to production. He’s definitely one for the radar if you’re in the habit of keeping track of the freshest producers around in 2020.

https://open.spotify.com/album/6HoyOorjWcHAZc4n5uIzfF

It’s sultry, it’s retro, it’s euphoric, it’s Elta Wave’s eccentrically electric 5th single “Dance Floor Dance”.

Finding distinction within a Dance Pop track may be harder than finding a needle in a haystack, but you can’t help but be hooked in by Elta Wave’s magnetic personality in the danceable high-vibe hit. I should probably warn you now that the melody will stick to your synapses like superglue.

There are nuanced textures of Funk and Disco weaved into the contemporary mix which kicks off and concludes by throwing playful polyphonic notes your way. You’re instantly given the affirmation that Dance Floor Dance is an accessible from the first hit mix.

There’s no understating the commercial potential in Elta Wave’s sound. You’ll have to hear the infectious rhythms for yourselves.

Atlanta-based EDM artist and producer Darth Athena has recently dropped their most entrancing track to date, Polyzap.

It wasn’t long before the high-energy futuristic mix quickly garnered plenty of acclaim from Techno, Tech House and Trance fans alike. Even without clubs to hit, the galvanising track became a playlist staple for anyone looking for a rhythmically hypnotic track to sink into.
