KINGDØMS – Senses: Sensually Sublime Progressive Indie Synth Pop  

KINGDØMS

“Senses” is the recently released aptly-titled sensually-sublime feat of Indie Synth Pop from up and coming artist KINGDØMS.

All too frequently lacing a Pop mix with atmospheric mesmerism dilutes the danceability. But that definitely isn’t the case with Senses. The evocatively arrestive hit may take its sweet and rhythmic time before the euphoria really hits but meandering through the seamless progressive evolutions is an entrancing experience which you won’t forget in a hurry.

Not only is the production radio-ready. But it also allows the Alt Pop artist to lay down their signature smooth style which incorporates a nuanced infusion of Lounge Acid House into a Pop earworm which offers plenty of commercial appeal.

You’ll be able to check out KINGDØMS latest drop for yourselves by heading over the artist’s YouTube channel.

San Pedro Collective – Where Do I Begin: Entrancingly Atmospheric Acid House

San Pedro Collective

San Pedro Collective are due to drop their hotly anticipated Dance hit “Where Do I Begin” in February 2020 and blast the airwaves with an arrestive revival of those nostalgic 90s Acid House tones which would have sat the Hacienda alight.

The Hacienda may be long gone (well, it’s a block of flats now), but the Manchester-based collective’s sound is well and truly alive with vibrant sensuous mesmerism which hooks more than your mind into the seamlessly orchestrated and produced beats. Millie Macbean’s harmonically hypnotic vocals resonate like they were born to dominate a mix such as Where Do I Begin.

Starting off as a sensually mellifluous atmospheric soundscape, the progressive mix amasses momentum through the deft switch-ups until you reach the breakdown. A breakdown momentous enough to affirm that if any up and coming artist has what it takes to create a charting EDM floor-filler it’s San Pedro Collective.

You’ll have to wait until February 22nd to check out Where Do I Begin for yourselves. In the meantime, head over to Facebook and keep up to date with news of the release. And check out the standout track The Things You See from their Debut EP via YouTube.

Instead of waiting until summer to drop their smooth grooving up-vibe RnB Hip Hop drop, US artist D’Andre treated fans of soulful urban melodies to their latest sun-kissed mix “Dancing Queen” on December 13th.

Their expressive freedom definitely resonated in Dancing Queen.

The EDM Hip Hop beats offer a light intricacy while the vocalists constantly switch-up the vibe of the track making it a dynamic feat of romantic urban soul from the prelude to the outro.

FELICITY GROOM – Burj Khalifa: Mind-Meltingly Arrestive House Groove Indie Pop  

FELICITY GROOM

Is there any better feeling than hitting play on a single and feeling a jolt of awe, curiosity and beguilement? It may not happen often, but you’ll get a potent amount of mesmerism from FELICITY GROOM’s single Burj Khalifa.

The genre-defying soundscape can loosely be defined as House Groove Pop. Yet the soundscape resonates as illimitable from the first verse. And that’s before you’ve been treated to the varying evolutions in the consistently captivating single. Despite its lucidity and easily ingestible ambience, it packs a punch.

Sound Lobotomy – The Elephant & The Rider ft. Meraki

Electronica artists frequently drop mind-altering mixes. But Sound Lobotomy has gone one step further and ensured that your perceptions shift thanks to the bass-driven beats in their latest mix and the inspiration behind their monstrous track.

Through our increased awareness of the world, it’s easy to want to slip into an existential black hole. The Elephant & The Rider is an aural olive branch with the ability to pull you out of the void and back to what it truly means to be human.

KomRon – Peter Pan: A Sticky-Sweet Hip Hop Pop EDM Earworm

“Peter Pan” is just one of the progressively unpredictable Alt Pop singles which you’ll find on up and coming artist KomRon’s latest EP.

While each of the tracks practically drips with viral potential. The standout track has to be the sticky-sweet anthemic earworm “Peter Pan” which was created in collaboration with JP Thornewell. The two artists brought incredibly dynamic chemistry to the Pop Hip Hop EDM mash-up.

It’s easy to see why we’re not the only one hyped by what KomRon is bringing to the airwaves. The aspiring rapper and Orthopedic Surgeon already have plenty of international acclaim. Given the energy and connectable persona poured into each of their tracks, it’s pretty easy to get hooked.

While there’s plenty of accessibility within the mix as the beats lead up to ecstatic breakdowns in the usual way. There’s also a slightly glitchy chaotic feel to the mix which would definitely be enough to make you want to throw away your dancefloor inhibitions.

Ian Edson – Elevate: Euphorically Sonic House

With their latest mix “Elevate”  up and coming LA-based producer Ian Edson has given Tech heads another reason to include his House mixes on their playlists.

The high-octane sonic floor filler utters the simple mantra of ‘Elevate’ over the simple, yet extremely effective danceable rhythm. The anticipation is set for the euphoric breakdowns by inventive uses of phasers creating drawn-out caustic sweeping effects throughout the mix.

Elevate may be slightly darker and harsher than your average House mix, but it still does exactly what it says on the tin.
