The Iraq-born, Sweden-hailing songwriter and producer, TARISH, blew the roof off the house genre with his stormer of a floor-filler, blurry.
With similar uninhibitedly high-energy to the hit, Filthy/Gorgeous by Scissor Sisters, read through the funky bass-dripping beats and the galvanizingly high vocal notes, blurry is an adrenaline-fuelled slice of euphoria which stores an endless supply of dopamine.
TARISH also audibly wears his Swedish House Mafia influence on his music producer sleeve, but never to the detriment of the originality of his resounding sound, which is currently criminally underrated. If you enjoy discovering underground artists before they break onto the mainstream, your time is running out to discover the electrifying visionary before everyone else.

Feel good tracks have never felt so good.
Fast Steppin’ is now available to stream on Soundcloud.
Melbourne-based EDM pop artist, Partimama, has released her riotously catchy empowerment track, Mamma Loves Ya.With more soul than all of Ru Paul’s aural productions combined, it’s hard not to let the wholesomely uplifting anthem sink its teeth and drip-feed serotonin.
With the well-placed horn stabs and disco grooves around the unfaltering pounding bass, Partimama became the queer-celebrating icon we never knew we needed through her infectious extension of unconditional love. Even if you don’t get it from your mother, you’ve got an unlimited supply from this unity inspiring hit.
Like many of her fans, we couldn’t be happier that she stepped away from other people’s music and turned her attention to her own expression.
Mamma Loves Ya is now available to stream on SoundCloud.
The old school bass bump and clicking of the fingers lets you know that this is going to be an old school feel of a song with lots of dancing involved. Vivacious UK singer-songwriter Erire sings with such pureness on her new single ‘Destination’ (ft. Axel 84).
This is about asking for that special person in your life to wait for you and not to disappear without you. They have let you down before but all has been forgiven and you believe in them. You feel that they are the air that you breathe and you want to be with them closely, feeling their heartbeat and dancing together all night. This is the desire you have deep inside and you were there when they were down and out. Loyalty isn’t an issue for you and your souls have meshed into one as this is the only person in the world that you want to be with.
Her voice is so soulful and beautiful, the tone is calm and passionate the whole way through, and this will lift you off your seat. The beat contains a wide range of genres as the disco house and vocals mesh so well like a fine wine and great company.
With Axel 84 on the mix here, the soulfully elegant Erire sings so stunningly on ‘Destination’. Her voice is spectacular and graceful, full of love and desire.
