Edenhill has taken indie pop to anthemic new heights with ‘Reliever’

Edenhill

Elements of anthemic EDM pop and indie jangle-pop coalesce in the sophomore release, ‘Reliever’ from up and coming London-residing artist, Edenhill, who may be one of the only artists with the ability to unite club kids and indie kids through one release.

Sonically angular guitars bite against danceable beats and experimental synth lines which almost bring a touch of psychedelia into the radio-ready soundscape which bleeds mainstream pop potential. While the instrumentals bring the authenticity, Edenhills vocals bring the accessibility and ensured that Reliever became one of the most infectious perennial pop earworms we’ve heard recently.

Reliever is due for official release on January 8th, you’ll be able to check it out via SoundCloud.

ADT proves that ‘The Truth’ doesn’t have to be uncomfortable with his latest moody electro pop hit

Dark, brooding electronica with a serious hip hop influence, all speeding beats, thumping piano chords, and layered, effected vocals, ‘The Truth’ from ADT is bass-heavy electronic pop with a menacing undertone; if Dre and Eminem had produced Avicii, it might sound something like ADT on ‘The Truth’.

There’s an obvious Marshall Mathers quality to the vocal here, mixed up with a very techno 140 BPM drum pattern and rising instrumental section. It’s a proper, classy dancefloor anthem with a catchy chorus and a kick to the drop, atmospheric and immediately comfortable at the same time.

Check out ADT’s ‘The Truth’ on Spotify, and follow on Facebook.

Gabe Angelo x Neguine Niktash deliver exactly what we need with ‘A Miracle’

If you’re always in search of the aurally miraculous, that is exactly what you will find in the latest high-vibe hit from producer Gabe Angelo featuring vocals from US singer-songwriter Neguine Niktash.

Neguine Niktash’s soulfully sonorous vocals have seen her influenced by artists such as Ashe, SHAED and Maggie Rogers and it is all too easy to see why such a wide-ranging array of artists shine through in this track. There’s more than just power and pitch-perfect harmony behind her connectable vocal timbre, there’s soul, sincerity and an overwhelming amount of compassion.

As it feels like a miracle is exactly what is needed to pull us out of our contemporary sufferance thanks to a crumbling socio-political climate and Covid-19, it’s hard to see A Miracle as anything less than a playlist essential for Future Pop fans.

You can check it out for yourselves here.

Hard House got harder with the release of ZacTomRob’s devilish drop ‘Mischief’

High tempo, hi-energy EDM shouldn’t be a genre description, but in the case of ZacTomRob’s ‘Mischief,’ it absolutely is. Techno-tinged drum and bass with sampled, sequenced vocal parts and a thunderous backline of programmed drums, rising bass parts, and a killer drop, this is a proper Hard House club anthem in the making.

Following up from September’s killer ‘Light That Feeling’, ‘Mischief’ is absolutely the sort of track to get people onto dance floors and lighting up clubs across the country. Mixed and mastered by the great Michael Wenz (Frankie Bones, Alpha Quadrant, The DRP), ‘Mischief’ is proper old-school EDM at its best.

The planets all align for Rocco & TDC Tunes with new single ‘Cosmic’

Rocco & TDC Tunes

While the world blinks in pandemic darkness and people sit frustrated, confused, and nervous of the future, it seems dance singer/songwriter Rocco has not just been falling in love, but finding the whole experience a transcendental, psychedelic time. Perhaps best known for her single ‘Lovesick’, a collaboration with H two 0 for the Ministry of Sound, which reached No.1 in the UK Dance Charts, on ‘Cosmic’ Rocco collaborates with London-based writer/producer TDC Tunes to provide us with a high energy, soaring dance tune, all swelling keyboard chords, overlapping vocal lines, and thumping house beats.

There’s a Gabrielle-like quality to Rocco’s voice, a smoky huskiness that’s at once sexy and vulnerable, sitting over rising, chiming sequenced keyboards, hi hat patterns, and thunderous bass, building and rising then dropping to a trancey, psychedelic little breakdown before climbing once more to its ultimate crescendo.

The full track is released on December 18th across all major streaming platforms, you can stream this now on Spotify, and follow TDC Tunes and Rocco on Instagram.

Illmatiq has dropped their entrancing Electro House Viral-Worthy hit ‘Roses’ featuring Fin Music Universal

Dance artist and producer Illmatiq may be new to the industry, but his debut EP, ‘Boy Meets World’, featuring Fin Music Universal, is ablaze with high-octane nuance and maturity.

The EP features the standout single ‘Roses’, there’s a beautiful sense of irony in the fact that the track is an absolute gift to the airwaves. It definitely wouldn’t have been out of place on Chase & Status’ iconic No More Idols collaborative album.

Without a hint of hyperbole, the Trancey Electro House beats deserves to go viral. Whatever mood it catches you in, Roses is going to boost it. With the irresistible blasts of bass finding perfect synergy with the trailblazing artist’s grimy vocals, you’ll want to give Roses plenty of repeat attention every time you want to feel rhythmically instilled euphoria.

He has an unmistakable style, full of originality in an often sheep-filled world of cliched clones. Deep Gordon is back with the enthusiastic debut track from his ‘Horny‘ EP called ‘Your Horoscope‘.

”A song about being in the moment and doing what you like to do..if you like that.”- Deep Gordon

With an abundance of vivid lyrics that soaks the song up with a fun vibes to party with, this is all about just going for it. Deep goes all the way in here and isn’t holding back at all. He is in love and what to show it- nothing is holding him back now.

This is an artist who has found his niche and is making sure that his music is like no other. A trait that we can all appreciate, even if you aren’t an EDM fan.

The beat grabs you by the ears and wants you to lock in, this is a jam to play with friends on the weekend house party with a swimming pool close by. The songs saucy lyrics will make you a bit sweaty with all the dancing and playful banter.

Deep Gordon is a likable personality and ‘Your Horoscope‘ is the kind of EDM song that you either love or hate, there is no in-between. One thing we can all agree on is that this is so entertaining and will draw a smile from most. This is what music is for- to entertain and break down barriers.
