THE NITE – Alienation: Industrially Indulgent EDM

Whilst many may try their hands at the genre, creating a stunningly textured Industrial EDM mix takes a fair amount of aural command. Which is exactly what emerging artist THE NIGHT proved they had in their possession with their debut EP release.

“Alienation” is just one of the seamless, pitch-perfect singles on the 4-track release which will take you right back to the roots of the genre, yet the single will still resonate as more than just an assimilation of already so commonly regurgitated sound. What so many artists EDM artists fail to do is weave some ingenuity into the lyrics, and it’s safe to say THE NITE isn’t lacking in the ability to pen pensively salacious lyrics.

Apklypz -Golden Spiralverse: Vividly Expressive EDM

If you’re looking for a Drum & Bass mix which hits you just as hard at home as on the dancefloor, look no further than the latest release by Apklypz (AKA J Holden) “Golden SpiralVerse”. The short and sweet hit may only be 2:15-minutes long, but there’s plenty of snaringly visceral hooks and drops. Even if you forget the slightly hard to remember name, there’ll be no forgetting the dark, dubbed progressive mix. By blending elements of Bass & Prog Rock, the cinematic sound becomes instantly accessible, yet the allure of Apklypz goes beyond that. With the organic soundscape’s ability to paint vivid expression full of aesthetic, Golden Spiralverse is a resonant attack on all of the senses.

TIANI – Bad Enough for You: The Darker Edge o EDM

Every now and again you’ll have the pleasure of stumbling across an EDM Pop artist who possesses as much incandescent attitude in their vocals as they carry experimentalism within their sound.

With a darker approach than most mainstream artists the moody edge which TIANI put behind her soon to be released single “Bad Enough for You” was enough to set her apart from the swathes of EDM artists currently producing music. The rhythm behind the single instantaneously hits you in the ambiently melodic single which pours plenty of lush reverb on the synth whilst the bassy kicks of the drum pads carve out the hooks.

You’ll have to wait a little longer to make your own mind up about TIANI’s latest single, in the meantime, you can check out some of her earlier mixes by heading over to SoundCloud now.

Bjork Fans Are in For A Treat with Murchu’s Latest Single Adams Street Bridge

Whatever genre Murchu’s latest single “Adams Street Bridge” falls into, no one can deny that it’s a hauntingly resonant composition. The cinematic orchestrally ethereal single has an instantaneously arresting capacity right from the stormy fade in to the clockwork fadeout. If you could imagine a more hypnotically soulful EDM twist on sounds similar to those created by bands such as the 1975, you’d get an idea of the punchy energy around the sound. However, Murchu has managed to pack in plenty more sonorous harmony with the orchestral swells and bridges around the immersive EDM beats. Her rich, velvety, dynamic vocal range possesses a command which is so hard to find from an up and coming artist. Bjork is probably her closest competition in that arena.

Kaytlyn Cate – You’re Making My Heart Feel Like: Neo-Soul Meets EDM Pop

Whilst the majority of up and coming Electro Pop artists are busy trying to recreate the sound of London Grammar and Warpaint. Singer-songwriter Kaytlyn Cate has carved out her own sound with the sharp hooks contained within her latest single “You’re Making My Heart Feel Like”.  The single unfolds with an infusion of Neo-Soul which comes courtesy of the bends and swells from the acoustic instrumentals whilst the drum pads offer a concordantly mesmeric rhythm.  Combined with powerful, ingeniously metered lyricism and Kaytlyn’s ethereal vocal capacity, it’s easy to anticipate a big future for breaking artist’s career. With so much maturity already to be found in her sound it’s only a matter of time before her chart-worthy style finds its place in the mainstream.

V Del Rossi – SERPIENTE: Indulgently Infectious EDM

“SERPIENTE” is just one of the EDM hits to come from V Del Rossi’s latest EP “BLACKED OUT, VOL 1. And I’m fairly sure even those who don’t generally get hooked by Dance hits will fall under the indulgent allure of the Texas-based artist’s experimental approach to the genre. His instantly accessible style isn’t all too dissimilar from what you’ve heard from Lady Gaga’s biggest hits thanks to V Del Rossi’s vocal style which incorporates multi-lingual vocals too add to the exoticism of SERPENTINE.

Whilst there are some undeniable Pop elements behind the track, the beat is kept dark and intricate with the end result being a soundscape with a filthy alchemic effect.

SPAREY – Sick Fade: Accessibly Fresh Urban EDM Pop

“Sick Fade” is the first single from the soulfully resounding Urban Pop artist SPAREY. With equal amounts of style and attitude, the single unfolds to the sound of glitchy breakbeats with plenty of dub and bass. The hooks grip you with a sense of familiarity and accessibility, yet, there’s no disputing that SPAREY has her own pioneeringly poignant style.

The turbulent melody to Sick Fade was effortlessly matched by the perfect meter and rhyme of the lyricism. As for the power and sultry allure of the vocals, you’d have trouble finding another artist to rival SPAREY’s decadently indulgent prowess. Once the 2:40-minute track abruptly comes to a halt, it’s hard not to feel as though you’ve been teased by the debut. I’m already in bitter-sweet anticipation for her to drop an album.

SHIVA – Go Figure: EDM Hooks Don’t Get Much Sharper

It’s dirty, it’s infectious, it’s sublime, it’s SHIVA’s upcoming single “Go Figure”. I can’t tell you the amount of robotically predictable EDM Pop singles that I have to get through each week, which is just one of the reasons why “Go Figure” had me hooked before the first verse had even ran through.

The radio-ready single packs in plenty of progression around dangerously sharp hooks which creates the ultimate feel good hype. The Indian cultural influences to Go Figure were subtle yet the effects allowed SHIVA to create a prodigal mix which is as perfect for your headphones as it is for the dancefloor.

You can check out SHIVA’s single Go Figure for yourselves from October 25th, 2018 via SoundCloud. In the meantime while you wait to hear your latest earworm, head over and listen to the artist’s page and check out his earlier mixes.

D.Y.D. Daleth Records – That’s Me So: Playfully Dark Hip Hop EDM

It’s pretty rare that you get to hear such a fresh mash-up of Hip Hop and EDM. Yet, with their single “That’s Me So” D.Y.D Daleth Records have produced a filthy urban beat which proves that with their unique approach they’ve got the sound locked down.

Each track on their 2018 album “Last Call” has its own playfully dark infectious style. But the hype behind the fluidity in the constantly thrashing multi-layered beat which packed in plenty of bounce was nothing short of infectious. After the amount of Emo Rap I’ve unwillingly ingested over the past few months, I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to discover up and coming artists that haven’t forgotten how to create lit beats.

Oceanovus – Lights: The Up and Coming Producer Who Has Set the Bar for the EDM Pop Artists

Judging by the haphazard attempts of most EDM Pop artists, no one would blame you for thinking that it’s almost impossible to find a synergy between the beat and the vocals. Yet, with his latest single “Lights” Oceanovus proved that he’s the triple threat when it comes to lyrics, beat production and vocals. So, if you’re looking for the perfect Pop hit to take to the dancefloor to, look no further than Lights which progresses with a club vibe and contains infectiously catchy choruses which I can guarantee you won’t forget in a hurry. Despite the seamless production there’s minimal effect on the vocals which are left to soar throughout the mix as you enjoy the depth of the drops and heights of the breakdowns. There’s a raw element of honest and humble emotion which drives the beat to Lights, regardless of how resounding the mix is. Alongside the heavy kicks of the 808’s the keyboard melody is kept audible in the multi-layered anthemic hit giving Lights an instantly accessible feel.

You can check out Oceanovus’s latest single Lights for yourself which was released on October 3rd by heading over to SoundCloud now.
