Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that Billie Eilish is a massive part of the contemporary music scene, if she’s not putting out attitude-driven earworms herself, she’s inspiring other artists and making them realise that it’s okay to play around with the darker side of aural experimentalism.
One artist using Billie Eilish as an influence in their Witch Trance EDM soundscapes is the up and coming German artist FUREA. Their latest single “This Can’t Be Happening” is the perfect introduction to their fiery and melodic yet volatile approach to sound.
Even with the wavy transcendental Trap House vocals the sentiment behind This Can’t Be Happening will hit you like a brick. The single perfectly encapsulates the anxiety which many generations have already grown up in. Our culture breeds fear, but thankfully, it also breeds artists such as FUREA who make the existential dread a little more tolerable.

Enig_Mos’s latest mix “Take Me Away” may start out as a hazily rhythmic offering of ambiently explorative Electronica. Yet, the up and coming artist deviously throws you into a mix of harsh experimental Drum n’ Bass House mid-way through the track, and you start to appreciate the futility in the attempts to predict just what is coming next.
With the 4-minute mostly instrumental mix you get little warning before you’re thrown into high-octane servings of bass, so, it’s probably better if you just let yourself surrender to the constantly evolving rhythmic pulses as they move through the seamless progressions of Trap, Drum n’ Bass, and ambience.

“Work It Out” is the debut single from up and coming Dark Electro Pop artist Lydia Rosia who utilised an artfully emotive bed of synth-laden resonance to serve as the perfect platform for her magnetic vocals.
While it can be hard for Pop artists to set themselves apart, Lydia Rosia perceptively didn’t struggle through the expressively sonorous soundscape behind Work It Out. The track perfectly captures that frustrative and exhaustive feeling behind attempting to keep a relationship alive while it slips through your fingers. I have a feeling that plenty of people will find a potent serving of catharsis through the ethereally composed downtempo ballad which stands as a testament to the talent in Lydia Rosia’s vocal range.

Any fans of London Grammar, Warpaint, Miley Cyrus, Florence and the Machine, and Lorde are sure to find plenty of appeal in up and coming artist Cera Gibson’s single “Broken Mind” from their debut album “Crushed Velvet”.
With powerfully poetic lyricism which comes with lashings of resonance when versed by Cera Gibson’s flawlessly dynamic vocals, Broken Mind was never going to fall flat. But regardless of how awe-inspiring Cera Gibson’s vocals are, the true focus on Broken Mind is kept on the captivating emotions which spilt from her truly poignant performance. It makes a lot of sense that Cera Gibson takes inspiration from the likes of Leonard Cohen and Stevie Nicks with her inclination to spill Blues into her soundscape of Downtempo Darkwave EDM.

If you really want to give your headphones a run for their money, crank up the volume and hit play on the latest single “Stab It” from the breaking artist, DJ, and producer JP Backhouse.
The hard-hitting reverberance of the bass rattles through a multiculturally-inspired mix where you’ll find plenty of influence from Latin and Caribbean rhythms. But don’t worry, you’ll still get all of the accessibility of a solely Western mix yet, the exotic vibrancy replaces the sterility which is often easily found in EDM music. The lyrics in Stab It may be few and far between, but the beats alone will feed you all the visceral emotion you need in this captivating aural storm of a track which club DJs will surely want to make a playlist essential.

Combining electronic beats with experimental sound effects that converge into a final futuristic pop style, Chinese producer/songwriter Sihan has just released his new single ‘In My Space’.
Following his previous project ‘Just My Type’, ‘In My Space’ ranks as his first International single once again featuring Hong-Kong based artist Celine. Her vocals complement the ambience feel and achieve a unique pop-EDM solution.
Inspired by artists such as Skrillex and Diplo, who have definitely placed their footprint on his style, Sihan started producing music at 14 and has created music for brands as Vogue and Sephora. As for today, he counts over 20 million streams across Chinese streaming platforms.
It isn’t all too often that we’ll find any substantial amount of distinction in R&B EDM Pop, yet up and coming artist Matt Brown’s latest single “Good Morning” proved to be a deeply compelling single packed with delicate intricacies and juxtapositions.
The EDM beats provide a steady downtempo rhythm and offer a slightly sterile bassy tone – the same tone which is all too prevalent in EDM instrumental mixes. While they may not feed much emotion into Good Morning, they do serve as a perfect for Matt Brown’s contrastingly sweet Neo-Soul vocals which spill harmony and sticky sweet arrestive resonance over Good Morning.

Futuristic EDM Pop producer JsapDaMusikNerd’s latest mix “SummaWav” hasn’t failed to amass plenty of attention from fans looking for the freshest summer beats to add to their playlists. Despite the momentum contained within “SummaWav” the single is still smoothly melodic through each ebb and flow of euphoria. The female Pop vocals also offer an incredible dynamic to the mix, while they don’t offer a strong narrative, they’re incredibly effective when it comes to pouring plenty of sun-kissed imagery into SummaWav.
The incredibly danceable beats which were cooked up by the Kansas City-based artist allow you to appreciate a simple, yet incredibly immersive soundscape. Usually, when artists incorporate futurism into their tracks, the accessibility can be stifled. Yet, with over 100k streams on SoundCloud alone, it’s safe to say that plenty of listeners would agree with me.

While I’m never usually about aural misogyny in tracks which refer to women as ‘hoes’, with his latest single “All These H@€$”, Corey Writes & taNDRa dropped a bomb of a track which allows you to dare to forget your moral standpoint. I think that’s one of the highest compliments I could offer to an EDM Rave track, and it could still be argued was composed with good intent considering that All These H@€$ is an irresistible invitation to throw way inhibition on a dancefloor. The hard-hitting mix of rhythmic bass-slamming euphoria is a potently salacious drop which stands as a testament to Corey Writes eclectic and magnetic approach to EDM and the production skills of Nelly Trippz.

Tenna dropped anything but your average sun-soaked Pop hit with her latest release “Silver Storm” which was released on July 12th, 2019. Quite honestly, we’re a little baffled as to how an artist with literally jaw-dropping vocal strength has remained on the underground for so long, but after the release of this gigantic hit, everyone can see that she’s got talent worth investing in. Tenna brings so much more than a pitch-perfect vocal dynamic, she delivers a raw, passionate, and stormy performance which sits synergistically against the ominous tones of the moody Indie EDM Pop instrumentals.
There’s a striking reminiscence between Tenna’s vocals and the husky vocal presences of Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga, yet it’s clear that Tenna never created Silver Storm to assimilate iconic artists. The powerful energy which has been poured into this hit is likely to stay with you for long after the captivating radio-ready hit has faded out.
