US EDM producer, Beatzler has dropped their entrancingly immense release ‘Games Forever’

US EDM producer, Beatzler’s latest mix, Games Forever is the epitome of a floor-filler; even if there’s no atmosphere in the room, there’s plenty within this entrancingly immense progressive mix.

When producers can create vibes instead of just beats, that’s how you know they’re a cut above the rest, which pretty much makes Beatzler the sharpest knife in the draw. His lacerating hooks which drag you into dizzying dubbed drops are all too effective at immersing you completely in his playfully arrestive progressions.

Needless to say, fans of dopamine-teasing euphoric EDM will want Beatzler on their radar.

Games Forever is available to stream via SoundCloud. Play it loud.

Eiffel 65’s cult hit got catchier with Artuga’s trancey remix ‘Blue (Da Be Dee)’

Hitting play on Eiffel 65’s 1999 cult hit ‘I’m Blue’ is a sure-fire way to get a sweetly potent shot of serotonin. That also goes for Netherlands-based artist and producer Artuga’s rework ‘Blue (Da Ba Dee)’.

20 years have passed since the original, that’s reflected in the artist’s mix which extracts the 90s pop elements and replaces them with harsh trancey layers which lacerate the iconic soundscape with lashings of reverberant biting bass. With plenty more reverb on the higher-energy vocals, there’s little separation between the vocals and the surrealist escapism-aiding beats which tear you away from reality and throw you into the reality of the blue alien we fell in love with when MTV still played music.

Artuga’s remix of Blue is now available to stream via Spotify.

Can’t tell us what to say: Passionate LA singer Eriel Indigo drops sensational video for ‘Renegades’

On a mission to tell us how it really is in the USA right now, the dynamic Eriel Indigo opens the door for the world to see her at her most vulnerable, yet never stronger on ‘Renegades‘.

Eriel Indigo is a supremely gifted Los Angeles based indie-pop, EDM, Hip-Hop music artist and captivating creative activist, with a true story to tell. She makes that music that eats deep at the core issues and she brings her awakened sounds to the world, through her brazen style that leads you inside, if you want to learn more.

Taped up to a chair and clearly tired of current affairs that are thrown at us each day which are so hard to ignore, she sings with such velocity and cuts right to the bones of major issues such as divisiveness, hate, media-controlled state-sponsored narrative, brainwashing society and other problems that shouldn’t be happening, in a supposedly smarter world. Sadly poor leadership at the top for too long, has caused these issues and this young artist is fed up with it all.

Renegades‘ from multi-genre LA singer-songwriter/EDM and Hip-Hop artist Eriel Indigo, is the wake-up call for all those who have been hiding under their blanket with the blindfold on recently. She tells it straight up in her own open-minded way and passionately speaks out about the current issues that she feels is wrong and needs changing as soon as possible.

When things are at its worst, we need love and strong leaders to come to the front and do what is right. This is a talented artist who is using her vast platform wisely and has sent Earth an eye-opening and truthful music video, that lays it all on the line for hopes of better days ahead.

Life is better with the right mindset: Scottish DJ Cherry Joy drops an absolute dance gem on ‘Let It Go’

Cherry Joy is ready for whatever comes her way on the bass heavy gem via dance/edm track called  ‘Let It Go‘.

Cherry Joy is a supremely talented and self-motivated female singer-songwriter and radio DJ based in Edinburgh, Scotland. After dealing with being made redundant due to this horrific pandemic recently, she is a role model to us all by pushing hard to find new work, while also putting in 100% to get her long-awaited music career off the ground.

This is what she absolutely loves and feels this deep inside her soul. After studying music after school, she got into the normal work way of life and left music behind until 2018. Then, deep inside she felt the urge to get back into it and slowly but surely, the hunger and fire has built up to a stage where it feels like she truly believes in herself and this is her time.

Her stunning vocals grab your heart and take you for an exuberant ride. The real lyrics are a pleasure to hear as this is authentic dance music that is so rare in this genre. The obvious honesty and consistently excellent beat gets you into a happy but thoughtful groove; as you turn your lights off and all self-doubt away from anywhere close to you.

There is so much to love here and when clubs and festivals come back from the darkness, they need to book a DJ of this calibre to kick the crowd up to top gear and get them dancing all night to this.

Life is about just going for it and not worrying about material things. Scottish DJ/singer-songwriter Cherry Joy shows so much self-awareness on the top quality ‘Let It Go‘ and you can see why this is her favourite release so far.

The scary part is that she is only getting warmed up. This outstanding musician has the inner motivation and nothing can stop her doing what she loves.

Hear this top dance track that will uplift you on Spotify and see her incredible journey on IG.
