Alt Latino Artist Young Swan Has Made Their Debut with the Stylistically Exotic Single “Lagunita”

If you’re looking for exotic, and rhythmically stylistic urban grooves, look no further than the debut single “Lagunita” from up and coming Latino artist Young Swan.

The production on Lagunita may not be the smoothest, but the track still boasts a fiery danceable flow which is arrestive from the first verse. Bringing Papu in on the mix ensured there was plenty of dynamic versatility written into the mix which will keep you hooked right up until the soft fade out in the outro.

Clean Bandit – Symphony feat Zara Larsson SYSTEM KIDS Remix

Spectrum – I Want Something: Sticky-Sweet Soulful Future House Euphoria

Up and coming EDM artist Spectrum dropped their latest mix “I Want Something” in January 2020. Any fans of the late and great Avicii are going to want to give it some much-deserved attention.

Spectrum shares Avicii’s rarely found ability to make their mixes spill plenty of sticky-sweet soulful euphoria. If your soul doesn’t feel lighter after hearing I Want Something, you can assume that it’s defective.

I Want Something may not be the most polished offering of Future Pop you’ll hear on the airwaves. But with the life and energy which the track contains, the production does little to hinder the tracks ability to greet you as an infectiously happy danceable earworm.

So So Sun – Paradise: Progressively Smooth Synthwave Indie

Instead of jumping on an existing trend with their third single “Paradise”, Indie Dance Pop act So So Sun established one of their very own by merging atmospheric Jangle Pop Indie with smoothly danceable EDM.

It’s a sticky sweet genre mash which should go down a treat for any fans of The Midnight and similar artists leading the vanguard of contemporary Synthwave pioneers.

Expect funky acoustic basslines, shimmering nuances of euphoria to spill from the synths, and a plethora of futurism as a courtesy of the digital effects, and of course, the jangly Indie Pop progressions. With vocals which are just as soulful and progressive as the instrumentals, Paradise comes incredibly highly recommended. Especially if you like to have your finger on the pulse of exceptionally distinctive up and coming artists.

For their debut single “LOL (Love on Loud)”, up and coming Pop producer C Minor teamed up with the deftly talented Madison Deaver and created a progressively anthemic dance mix.

The chemistry in the collaboration is perceptible from the first verse to the last as Madison lays down her sultry and playfully powerful vocals on Future Pop Dance beats which keep to a solid structure to make sure the drops have a maximum impact.

There’s plenty of distinction in the mix as C Minor has made it all too evident that he has no intention of assimilating former artists. Instead, the rhythms have a natural and expressive feel which makes it all too easy to get hooked.

Newborn 90s is due to drop their euphoric 90s Eurodance Revival “No Time Lost”

Newborn 90s

90s Eurodance has been revived once more by the deft hands belonging to Scottish producer Newborn 90s. Their debut single “No Time Lost” is a high-octane blast of nostalgia which will remind you just anthemic the club hits used to be in the golden era of Dance.

Euphoria drips from every progression in No Time Lost. The beats work their way up to colossal build-ups which bring you up with them, and monumental drops allow the soundscape to splinter into high-vibe mind-altering electronic alchemy.

We may be leaving the EU, but Newborn 90s has proven that 90s Eurodance isn’t done with us quite yet.

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. Sarah Bouchier’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.
