Gabe Angelo x Neguine Niktash deliver exactly what we need with ‘A Miracle’

If you’re always in search of the aurally miraculous, that is exactly what you will find in the latest high-vibe hit from producer Gabe Angelo featuring vocals from US singer-songwriter Neguine Niktash.

Neguine Niktash’s soulfully sonorous vocals have seen her influenced by artists such as Ashe, SHAED and Maggie Rogers and it is all too easy to see why such a wide-ranging array of artists shine through in this track. There’s more than just power and pitch-perfect harmony behind her connectable vocal timbre, there’s soul, sincerity and an overwhelming amount of compassion.

As it feels like a miracle is exactly what is needed to pull us out of our contemporary sufferance thanks to a crumbling socio-political climate and Covid-19, it’s hard to see A Miracle as anything less than a playlist essential for Future Pop fans.

You can check it out for yourselves here.

TJA is set to drop their EDM Hip Hop Juggernaut of a single ‘Woah’ featuring Jay Willy

TJA

Flint, US-residing artist TJA took the influence of LMFAO, Lil John and Skrillex and ran with it with their Hip Hop juggernaut of a track ‘Woah’ featuring Jay Willy.

It’s hard to tell which is dirtier, the dubbed drops or the Rap verses which stand as a testament to TJA’s ability to wax lyrical. Not only is TJA’s versing relentless, but every syllable is also delivered dripping with their endearingly confrontational charisma.

TJA’s former releases amassed plenty of acclaim but Woah is fresh enough to see the luminary artist deservingly go viral. It’s so much more than a technically impressive release, as soon as you hit play, the infectious energy is instilled. TJA may just be the finest purveyor of high vibe hostile Hip Hop the airwaves have seen in recent years.

Woah is due to drop officially on January 19th, 2021. Until then, you can check out TJA’s former releases via SoundCloud.

Hard House got harder with the release of ZacTomRob’s devilish drop ‘Mischief’

High tempo, hi-energy EDM shouldn’t be a genre description, but in the case of ZacTomRob’s ‘Mischief,’ it absolutely is. Techno-tinged drum and bass with sampled, sequenced vocal parts and a thunderous backline of programmed drums, rising bass parts, and a killer drop, this is a proper Hard House club anthem in the making.

Following up from September’s killer ‘Light That Feeling’, ‘Mischief’ is absolutely the sort of track to get people onto dance floors and lighting up clubs across the country. Mixed and mastered by the great Michael Wenz (Frankie Bones, Alpha Quadrant, The DRP), ‘Mischief’ is proper old-school EDM at its best.

See the video for ‘Mischief’ on YouTube now; follow ZacTomRob on Instagram.

Getting that house party started: bvpm sends through a magnetic beat full of beauty on ‘Ya’

bvpm flows through to the top of the barrel on the epic new fresh single called ‘Ya‘ that is an absolute banger.

Washington, DC based musician bvpm is a talented producer who somehow fuses Hip Hop, EDM, House, RnB and Drum and Bass to wash you up like a soothing sink, on this new sparkling effort of mystique.

The beat draws you in and then pokes you gently like a pencil when it feels like. There is so much going on here as you feel happy and also very adventurous at the same time. This is a summer dazzler with those sunglasses on as you laze by the swimming pool with stunning views everywhere. The ripping beat without vocals make you smile and tap your feet, wondering when your next house party is at. This is the perfect party track that screams classic and stomps down on your face as you listen intently.

Ya‘ from EDM producer bvpm is the type of song that nibbles at your taste buds and fulfills your hungry stomach with a buffet-full of tasty treats to improve your mood and focus. With a dazzling beat that catches your attention, this is a track you only need to turn on full volume for optimum effect.

The planets all align for Rocco & TDC Tunes with new single ‘Cosmic’

Rocco & TDC Tunes

While the world blinks in pandemic darkness and people sit frustrated, confused, and nervous of the future, it seems dance singer/songwriter Rocco has not just been falling in love, but finding the whole experience a transcendental, psychedelic time. Perhaps best known for her single ‘Lovesick’, a collaboration with H two 0 for the Ministry of Sound, which reached No.1 in the UK Dance Charts, on ‘Cosmic’ Rocco collaborates with London-based writer/producer TDC Tunes to provide us with a high energy, soaring dance tune, all swelling keyboard chords, overlapping vocal lines, and thumping house beats.

There’s a Gabrielle-like quality to Rocco’s voice, a smoky huskiness that’s at once sexy and vulnerable, sitting over rising, chiming sequenced keyboards, hi hat patterns, and thunderous bass, building and rising then dropping to a trancey, psychedelic little breakdown before climbing once more to its ultimate crescendo.

The full track is released on December 18th across all major streaming platforms, you can stream this now on Spotify, and follow TDC Tunes and Rocco on Instagram.

Christopher the Grey – Higher: The Upraising Hit Your Hip Hop Playlists Have Been Waiting For

More often than not ‘high-vibe’ Hip Hop resonates as trite, at best, but Christopher the Grey’s natural charisma interweaves with the playfully inventive beats in their infectiously galvanising latest single ‘Higher’.

Part EDM anthem, part soul-driven Hip Hop hit, the high-octane track will undoubtedly be universally adored. For music fans of a more alternative inclination, you’ll find ensnaring hints of Alt Rock behind the zealous dub drops and harsh 808 snares.

The anthemic intensity of the track might blow cobwebs off your speakers (good god, don’t listen to this on your laptop or phone speakers), but the real power behind Higher is the ardently upraising energy effortlessly exuded by Christopher the Grey.

You can check out Christopher the Grey’s latest track via Spotify.

Get a Shot of Electro House Euphoria with Too Martian’s Single ‘Changes’ featuring Sara Chay

Netherlands-hailing artist and producer Too Martian’s short but significant career has seen him achieve airplay on major stations and garnering plenty of hype with their entrancing mixes, their latest release ‘Changes’ exhibits the best of their euphoria-rousing talent.

With Too Martian’s bass-riding beats in a high-vibe progressive rollercoaster of a track, you’ll quickly feel your rhythmic pulses become intrinsically combined with the playfully devilish breakdowns and build ups which will always leave you wondering what kind of aural curveball will be thrown at you next through the shimmeringly entrancing production.

The Future Pop vocals perfectly round off the track by complimenting the stylistic tone of the EDM beats which combine all of the best components of Melodic House and Electro House.

Music to get weird with: Bahbiss Cobb drops mysteriously exciting ‘Feeling Loopy’

Moonpie and Yum Yum by Bahbiss Cobb

With a fascinating start with many layers in intrinsic electronic sounds to wet the thirsty pallet, the gorgeous groove is soon woven into your tired brain and you enthusiastically gaze, and wonder out loud what this is all about. You like the vibe and close your eyes, forgetting all worries for a few minutes. Michigan’s Bahbiss Cobb are back with an EDM single to help us alleviate current life stress on ‘Feeling Loopy‘.

Bahbiss Cobb is the electronic music project of Eric Curry, and this style was made by mistake which makes it even better to listen to. Sometimes you greatest mistakes turn into your greatest wins, life is strange like that sometimes.

The thudding bass bellows through into your earlobes like a sudden thunderbolt as you get into the galaxy-gazing melody of this mysterious wonderland of a fantastically flavored juicy song. The concept is quite awe-inspiring as you get lost in the wormhole that has been created for us to enjoy with friends- who appreciate electronic sounds of splendor.

Feeling Loopy‘ is that song to get a bit weird to, to explore the mind and stare at the stars to and dance all night with. Alongside good friends, speakers alert and ready for the incredible busty beat that traps you in and won’t let go. Michigan’s Bahbiss Cobb found this style while making other types of music and for that, we are truly blessed. Music is all about creating your own lane, not following anyone else’s.

Turn off your worries via this song on Bandcamp and find out more about this electric act on Facebook.
