Lajze brings the world something so steamy it might burn fingers with Secret life of a Subflower

Fresh from previously intertwining our moods on Glue, Lajze has dropped something rather desirable and spine-healing to consume all fascinated minds with on her latest release, Secret life of a Subflower.

Lajze is an experimental London-based British/Polish singer-songwriter and composer who loves fusing in electropop to pulse our joints and give that spark back to the lost generation.

I want my music to tease and suck you in, put you in a trance. But also with my lyrics, I want to express female sexuality, boldly and delicately at the same time. I hope it empowers others, especially females to dig deep, get to know themselves, find their kinks, and explore them.” ~ taken from Lajze’s IG post here

Stunning all quiet hearts with a piercing sound, Lajze sizzles the snakes into their corner with an X-rated track to scare many and excite more to have fun again.

Secret life of a Subflower from the multi-creative Polish/British wonder Lajze is a seduction-packed experience to move even the most conservative souls amongst us. The lyrics are ear-tingling and the beat is rather intoxicating to the fullest possible realm, to stimulate emotions which were thought extinct before.

If you like it sexy unique and reloaded with desire, this might be the door you wish to open.

Spotlight Feature: Ducktail gave a lesson in inspirational exhilaration in his future bass debut, Over, ft Kristal Oliver

With a Wall Street career in the rear-view mirror, the electro luminary in the making, Ducktail, ensured the world knew about his arrival in the Future Bass scene by dropping his debut single, Over. If it’s good enough for Pete Tong, the multi-layered leads driving through pop-hooked groove-pocketed basslines are worthy enough for your rhythmic pulses.

The New York-based artist and producer teamed up with the Grammy-nominated platinum artist Kristal Oliver, who exhilarated the release with her award-winning vocal lines before the anthem for a lost and now found cause was mixed and mastered by none other than Gosteffects.

As change is the only thing that is certain in life, Ducktail prepared us all for it by lighting the green light to illuminate the way towards spiritual decision-making, which will lead you to the endless possibilities awaiting in the unknown.

Ducktail and Kristal Oliver converged to create an unreckonable force with this fiery feat of anthemic electro-soul. With choruses that burst with riotous, almost punk, energy and ever-ascending verses, which will leave you on a new spiritual plateau, just try telling me this isn’t the debut of the year.

“Over is all about following your passion and finding happiness along the way. Music has always been the biggest source of happiness for me. So, in a way, Ducktail was created to repay the debt I owed to music. I always strive to create something of inherent value and spread joy – even through the darkest times. Lyrically, Over is a testament to this notion; it quells decisional regret, something we’ve all experienced.”

Over will hit the airwaves on June 2nd. Check it out on all major platforms via this link.

“Crushing Boundaries: Deshhaber’s Industrial Electro Punk Delivers Raw Emotion and Innovation”

crushed by deshhaber

Deshhaber’s latest track “Crushed” is a captivating dive into the world of industrial electro punk. With a combination of drum machines and guitars, the track sets a firm foundation for Deshhaber’s explorative and layered vocals. The final product is a hauntingly beautiful soundscape that will leave listeners in awe.

One of the most impressive aspects of Deshhaber’s music is the use of subtractive editing in the composition process. This technique is akin to putting the finishing touches on an oil painting with a palette knife. The result is a truly polished and refined sound that is unparalleled in the world of industrial electro punk.

But Deshhaber’s music is not just about technique. There is a raw emotion and energy that permeates every note and lyric. It’s clear that this is an artist who is deeply passionate about their craft and is not afraid to push boundaries and experiment with new sounds.

For those looking for something fresh and exciting in the world of music, Deshhaber is a must-listen. Their music is a perfect blend of innovation and emotion, and it’s impossible not to get swept up in the energy and excitement of their sound.

In a music scene dominated by cookie-cutter pop and generic rock, Deshhaber stands out as a true original. Their music is a breath of fresh air and a reminder that true artistry is alive and well in the world of music.

Transcend to a new distorted dimension with the post-rock instrumentals in Bundle of His’ latest single, Patches

Úr Ur by Bundle Of His

If Grandaddy dialled the polyphonic distortion and fuzz up to 11, their sweet synthy melodies would be as infectiously muddy as the electro post-rock tones in the latest single, Patches, from the artist and producer, Bundle of His.

With a touch of Kraftwerk melded into his intrinsically authentic instrumental hits, the Outer Hebrides-based artist pushes the envelope beyond the limits most dare to, and his instrumental lo-fi tracks are all the more alluring for it.

After an illness got in the way of the artist playing bass in various bands in Glasgow and the Outer Hebrides, it is safe to say Bundle of His didn’t fail to bring his bass-driven ingenuity to life as a producer.

Patches was officially released on January 1st. It is now available to stream and purchase via Bandcamp.

The infectiously euphoric backbeats are the only upper you will need to leave you riding on a high.

nasir mf. turned up the heat for electro heads in his hyper-pop exposition of obsession ‘romantic fury’

nasir mf. won us over with his emo hyperpop debut in 2022; for 2023, the queer icon in the making reached stratospheric heights with his sophomore single, romantic fury. It is impossible not to feel the heat while revelling in the affirmation that there is nothing sane or rational about passion.

The independent Brooklyn, NY-based artist created a world of carnal pleasure through the cascade of luminous synth lines and beats built to body rock to – crafted by Flame Yuppie. For any fans of PC-adjacent music in the same vein as Charli XCX, Namasenda, Caroline Polachek and SOPHIE, the ECHOVALLEY remix may be more your hyper-sonic 8-bit cup of tea.

“This track is a hyper pop banger with rap verses for the electro-loving hopeless romantics. I made this track about experiencing limerence – that obsessive, unhealthy feeling that we often get for someone. I wanted to appeal to all the people who have someone who fucks with their mental state. It is super unhealthy, but hey, it happens… it is honest.”

Stream romantic fury and the ECHOVALLEY remix on Spotify now.

Flamenco & Electro Amalgamate in Kuma Pop’s Progressive Production, Por Dentro ft Jey Varez

Kuma Pop

Stellar songwriter and producer Kuma Pop teamed up with the Andalusian artist Jey Varez, who layered his exotically inviting flamenco vocals into the soul-heavy feat of electro house, Por Dentro.

His vulnerably sincere vocal notes open the progressive track, which evolves from a shimmering feat of downtempo house into a playful synth-pop mix before ramping up the energy to reveal a bass-drenched drop-filled anthem, orchestrated to make you lose your head and find your heart on the dancefloor.

Every beat was succinctly placed to make Por Dentro (which translates to ‘Inside’ in English) an evocative rollercoaster that lovers of progressive anthems will never tire of riding. It’s as imploring as it is clever; we hope to hear more collaborative chemistry from the dynamic duo.

Por Dentro will officially release on December 2nd; check it out on Spotify.

Resistance resonates in THE MAINSTREAM OFFICIAL’s harbingering electro-anthem, Part of the Problem

Harbingering signs of the times rarely resound in trancey house mixes, but here to bring consciousness under the club music umbrella is THE MAINSTREAM OFFICIAL with their debut single, Part of the Problem.

Part of the Problem is the first single to drop in a series of resistance-themed singles that the duo has crafted to unshackle us on the dancefloor and awaken our minds to the issues we partake in if we go about our daily lives with blinkers on.

Sobering and liberating in the same glossy produced breath, THE MAINSTREAM OFFICIAL is doing more than just breaking ground; they are fighting for the world we are all respectively attempting to save, destroying, and living in ambivalently. The vocals perfectly gel with the rhythmically arresting, tension-fuelled progressions as they project the myriad of global issues before compelling you to take a stand.

Part of the Problem is now available to stream on Spotify.

Slipping away into a whole new world and blistering up a storm with a superb song, Orbit 17 sits in silence for a while and sends our cores into a spin on the hazy gem that is Helium.

Orbit 17 is a San Jose, California-based indie alternative electro-rock band who loves those tasty hypnotic grooves which might cause hearts palpitating like no other.

A song about all those friends we’ve made but left behind or outgrown. The ones that made huge impacts on our lives, and that we think of from time to time, yet haven’t spoken to in years.” ~ Orbit 17

Cruising to the airport with a super chilled vibe that will calm even the most stressed hearts, Orbit 17 sends us into a whole new galaxy on this road trip essential that is such an undoubted must-listen.
