“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.
The key element to any hard-hitting Pop track, or for any track for that matter is the recognition that the artist is wrapped up in the emotion that is being poured through the mic. Never before now has it been so palpable, Houston Clark really did set the emotive bar high for himself with this release of YDMNTM (or You Don’t Mean Nothing To Me). The beat only proved to amplify the melancholia behind the vocals as it progressed to be one of the darkest Pop tracks I’ve ever heard. How Houston Clark managed to pack in that much progression into a 3:58-minute long beat is yet another testament to his pioneering talent. By the time you’ve reached the end of the track you’ve gone from a soundscape that isn’t too dissimilar from the average Pop hit on the radio to a bass heavy smorgasbord of dark beats.

Dancing in the Rain is the fourth single from the Electro House Pop powerhouse D’LuXE, it’s safe to say at this point in their careers they’ve already stamped down their style which mainstream Pop fans are sure to appreciate.
Whilst there is little in the way of pioneering conceptualism behind Dancing in the Rain, there’s no denying that the track is a solid beat that would sound as sweet pumping from dancefloor speakers as it does through your headphones. Their up-vibe energy has an infectious capacity brought through the lush yet simultaneously heavy melodies and vocal harmony. The strength behind the soaring, pitch-perfect vocals in Dancing in the Rain are just as hard-hitting as the drops, their ability to stretch the notes stands as testament to their talent.

If you’ve always found that the EDM genre was a little lacking in Soul, then it’s my absolute pleasure to introduce you to one of the most sensational up and coming artists the EDM Pop scene has seen this year.
Higher is the debut single from singer songwriter REA whose almost classical style of vocals don’t fail to leave you captivated as you listen to her euphoric soundscapes unravel. Higher is a single which is as unpredictable as it is beguiling, there’s no telling where the beat will seamlessly progress to next, it’s clear that Higher was created as a testament to REA’s individualistic talent, which I am sure we will be hearing a lot more from in the future. I have no doubt that EDM, Pop and Trap fans alike could all unite around the offerings of aural alchemy served up by this sensational emerging artist.
As you might have noticed, I don’t have enough good things to say about REA, so you might as well go right ahead and check out Higher out for yourselves by heading over to Spotify. If you’re looking for a viscerally uplifting, urban inspired mix, you can’t go wrong with the angelically ethereal soundscape on offer through one of the most evocative mixes I’ve heard this Summer
