If your playlists are lacking deep and viscerally electric Pop, look no further than Two Times Hundred’s latest single “Say the Word” to amp up the energy. With not one note of the darkly urban mix falling flat and vocals possessing the ability to melt the ice caps, it’s safe to say you won’t be quick to forget the up and coming artist’s latest drop. Right from the prelude you’re sucked into the vibrant progression as the beat thrashes with fluidity through the mix with the vocals feeding right into the melody. What more could you ask for from a Pop track? Instead of skirting around the surface of superficiality, the lyrics hit the sweet spot whilst keeping in perfect meter and rhyme.

There’s infectious, and there’s up and coming Pop artist EMM’s latest single “Freedom”.
Right from the first verse the sultry allure of EMM’s dynamically sonorous vocals hit you and lets you know that even after the single has faded out the atmospheric single will stay with you. The EDM hit has Urban elements weaved into the mix which drives the flow and rhythm behind the stylishly cathartic single.
Yet, there are few ways to allude to how EMM’s style both musically and lyrically take hold from the start to finish. The textural drops and build ups keep you eager to hear the next switch up. Given that Freedom is one of the most progressive singles I’ve heard in a while, there’s plenty to anticipate.
I’ll refrain from using the archetypal comparisons to other contemporary Pop artists, because with the ability to leave the listener so enamoured from the first hit, her organic style is indistinguishable from the rest.

No one likes ultimatums. Yet PANDDA’s latest single “Ultimatum” is most definitely the exception. Ultimatum possesses the rare combination of a track which is as vocally dynamic as the beat is progressive. To perfectly round off the track, PANDDA teamed up with Tali Burton who irrefutably did their part in adding layers of harmony to the fiery easy listening beat.
Whilst the prelude may put you under the impression that you’re about to listen to an archetypally moody indie electro pop unfold, when the beat drops, the progression becomes unpredictably immersive. Despite the amount of visceral energy poured into the track, Ultimatum is still as easy to listen to as breathing thanks to the light arrangements which carry an exotic bite. The irony in the fact that the lyrics alluded to entrapment and wanting to escape definitely wasn’t lost.

“Dangerous” is the latest dancefloor hit dropped by up and coming EDM Pop artist Cara. With a darker sensibility than what you’d come to expect from the genre Dangerous is an immersive treat for anyone looking for a soulfully rendered offering of aural magnetism.
The synth-driven rhythm packs in plenty of progression to keep the beat fresh from start to finish. Whilst there is an instantaneously accessible allure from the arrangement of the anthemic mix, Cara’s resounding approach to Pop is still right on the contemporary curve. The lyrics to Dangerous may be kept relatively simple, yet this just adds further to the commercial potential of the single. With the soundbites as fierce as Beyoncé would serve up, watching Cara’s ascension to the top of her game will make for short viewing.

It’s been a pretty prolific year for production for the up and coming artist Hamonical. “WYSIWYG” is the latest track to be released from the EDM Pop artist who allowed the track to stand testament to the fact that knows how to create a soulful sound using predominantly digital effect. Whilst there is some bluesy background rhythm courtesy of guitar and bass, the rhythm is predominantly led by the concordantly thrashing kicks from the 808’s.
Harmonical’s latest single may conclude on the note that “you haven’t seen nothing yet”, but I’m pretty sure we haven’t heard the extent of Harmonical’s prodigal approach to the genre either. EDM Pop has plenty more avenues to go down yet and Harmonical may just be the artist to take us there. Even with the slightly excessive use of vocal verb in some parts in the track, WYSIWYG’s warmly mesmeric beats won’t fail to leave you hooked on her ability to layer harmony within Harmonical’s mixes.

As debut releases from up and coming Pop artists go, you really can’t expect more than what Royse has cooked up with her first single “Intention”. Considering she’s already amassed over 14,000 monthly listeners with her track, it would seem the infectious melodies didn’t just have me hooked.
The Dance mix packed in plenty of bass in the intro, yet, when you get to the bridge you’re led up to an intricately mesmeric lighter beat which provided the perfect platform for Royse to lay down her harmoniously unflinching vocals. When you get to the chorus, you’re treated to the full power behind the resounding tonality of Royse’s vocal capacity around authentically hyped feel-good beats. I’d put good money on the fact that this isn’t the last we’ll hear from Royse.

Just how much can you expect from a 17-year old EDM Pop producer? Well, LKSHYA has just set the bar pretty high for other up and coming artists with the release of his latest single ‘Without You & I’.
For the vocals the artist who is currently based in India drafted in the help of the sensationally talented female Pop vocalist Sassi. Her pure and energetic approach to the vocals were the perfect accompaniment to LKSHYA’s dizzily iridescent EDM Pop beat. The synth progression to the track is seamless and the producer’s ability to orchestrate the perfect hooks shines through on multiple occasions. The slight Neo-Classical twist to the beat adds an extra element of sleek style to the mix.
Until the official release of Without You & I, you can head over to LKSHYA’s SoundCloud page to check out some of his earlier releases. With seven years of music production already behind him you can be sure to be treated to some of the prodigally inspired House, Techno and Electronica. Whilst his latest release has a heavier Pop inclination than any of his earlier release, it stands as the perfect testament to his ability to command every digitally driven sound.
When true talent combines it should be come as no surprise that the end result is an offering of viscerally electric synergy.
I get dubious every time I’m faced with a Pop track, yet it’s safe to say that Ni/Co restored my faith in the genre with their organic approach which came alive through their soulful, accessible charisma as artists. Whilst it is hard to believe that some Pop artists are actually human, the duo bring more humanity and emotion to the Pop scene than we’ve heard lately.
The beats are fused with a nostalgic R&B vibe and are a little darker than you’re average Pop melody which makes their latest single Walls Speak intangibly immersive. Combined with the waves of romanticism which comes curtesy of the lyrics, Walls Speak is as close to perfection as Pop can get.

Sitting somewhere between Pop, Trap and EDM is up and coming artist Lavndr’s latest single ‘Follow You’. If you’re looking for a soulful vibe to add to your playlists, the artist has provided an accessible, progressive, heartfelt sound which won’t fail to leave you sharing in the same emotion which has been poured into the mic through pensively evocative yet soft vocal styling. There was no predicting the down-tempo Rap verses which were weaved into the mix mid-way through the track.
Whilst the pace to Follow You was set to perfection, I couldn’t help but think that the track was slightly lacking in essence. I’d love to hear in the artist’s future releases Lavndr really setting themselves apart from the other EDM Pop artists putting out beats. Having said that, the production to the track is flawless and his ability to create a solid beat is unquestionable.

Behind Tanja Jeramaz’s latest single Spend the Night are lyrics that I have no doubt will resonate with at least half of the female population. And with her viscerally compelling lyrics, she amplifies the sentiment of making regrettable decisions through her sensually strong Pop vocals. There was absolutely no restraint when it came to composing Spend the Night with any aspect of the track. The lyrical hooks will definitely leave a mark and as for the instrumental drops, well, they’ll leave rocks in the pit of your stomach.
Whilst there have been many female EDM Pop artists contributing to the soundwaves recently, Tanja’s vocals and ability to produce an immersive high-octane beat makes her one of the strongest contenders I’ve heard so far.
You can check out Tanja Jeramaz’s debut single Spend the Night on Spotify and join me in the excitement for her next release.
