EDM artist ZacTomRob lays down galvanizing euphoria-laced progressions with “Light That Feeling”

Wisconsin-based EDM artist ZacTomRob premiered the music video to their new track Light That Feeling on September 25th, it’s already on its way to becoming a viral hit, and with the galvanizing euphoria-laced progressions, it’s easy to see why.

ZacTomRob takes his inspiration from a wide range of artists and employs the very same versatility in his own sound. Light That Feeling is all about the rhythm, the electronic drumbeats have been replaced by the indistinguishable snaps and symbol rattles of acoustic drums, which brings an incredibly naturalistic texture to the entrancing mix. Hit play, and you may just find yourself wondering if you have been sleepwalking through life before you embraced the reviving energy in this ingeniously crafted, sonically electrifying mix.

Newah and Amber Prothero have jazzed up the airwaves with their Electro Pop single “Let It Burn”

Newah & Amber Prothero found the perfect balance between sensuality, soul and jazz-laden ecstasy in their new electro jazz pop hit “Let It Burn”.

The UK-based duo brought a brand-new meaning to the term let it burn. They tear the narrative away from arson and offer inspiration through their lyrics which invite you to embrace the fire within. So, if you’ve been feeling a little stagnant lately, Let it Burn is the perfect aural warmer. It brings Electro Jazz into the mainstream while never compromising on the earworm accessibility.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who will be hoping that there will be more to come from the already iconic duo. They’re firmly affixed to our radar.

FunkEnergy brings the Funk-filled Break Beats with “Beautiful Liar”

Italian artist and producer FunkEnergy made their most entrancing contribution to the Big Beat scene yet with their 2020 EP ‘Red Lips’ which dropped on October 14th via UPUK Records.

With snappy breakbeats bringing a solid structure to the exuberantly dynamic standout track ‘Beautiful Liar’, you can’t help but get into the groove with the up-vibe rhythms.

The fact that FunkEnergy was able to create a high-vibe track about infidelity makes me love him even more. The cheeky playfulness resonates all throughout the mix which you’ll definitely want to give plenty of repeat attention to. The production boasts a massive sound, but it is still easier than breathing to slip into. Naturally, we can’t wait to hear what comes next.

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.

Dancefloors across the globe may remain desolate, but that hasn’t stopped artists such as Sedgeley from producing seductively sweet tracks. Their latest release “Dance with Your Lover” is the amorous escapism that the airwaves have been crying out for.

There’s a beguilingly nostalgic air behind the track which contains plenty of appeal for fans of artists such as Seal, and aural nostalgia is more important now more than ever. It draws us back to a time where our lives weren’t quite so consumed with chaos and uncertainty. The sentimental air to Dance with Your Lover is consuming from the first verse. When the vocal sincerity hits, expect your soul to melt into the organic rhythmic alchemy of this stunningly produced release.

Angelika Ates has started a fire with her new single ‘Hearts Alight’ ft Gabriel Rizza

You can almost taste tonal warmth when you hit play on EDM Pop artist Angelika Ates’ second single “Hearts Alight” featuring Gabriel Rizza.

Right from the intro, the ecstasy in the warmly anthemic steady beats starts to work its way into your bloodstream. After a sensually soulful build-up, you’re seamlessly shifted in an entrancingly rhythmic production which boasts the perfect touch of tribalism within the modern and stylistic feat of Progressive Tech House.

The structuring and the way Angelika Ates pulls Hearts Alight together makes it so much more than just vocals finding synergy with instrumental melodies. It’s all-consuming. It’s soul-serving. It’s pure transcendence.

Hearts Alight is available to stream via all major platforms through this link.

Pete Jackson proves we’re all in this together with their entrancing Alt Darkwave hit “MASS HOUSE ARREST”

https://soundcloud.com/pete-jackson/mass-house-arrest?ref=clipboard

Delectably dark, yet euphorically rousing, MASS HOUSE ARREST by Sheffield-based artist and producer Pete Jackson is the feel-good Dance drop we never knew we needed.

Listening to high-energy tracks may be a bitter-sweet experience now, given that nightclubs are inaccessible, but you can class MASS HOUSE ARREST as a refreshing exception.

Starting out with a steady minimalistic beat, the track gently eases you into the momentum, only after ensuring you’ve had a suitable hit of catharsis. Then, the track amasses scuzzy distortion as it gains traction and the sound of Pete Jackson’s crunching guitar tones start to coalesce. Mid-way through the extended mix, the Dark Pop vocals work their way in, any fans of And One, Apoptygma Berzerk and Covenant will definitely approve.

I genuinely don’t know where my sanity would be if it wasn’t for artists such as Pete Jackson who are solidifying the culture bubble which protects the real fans of art, music and culture.

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.

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.
