Entrancingly Rhythmic World Music Meets Contemporary Pop in Ayaz Ismail’s single “Let Us Pretend”

“Let Us Pretend” is just one of the standout releases by breaking Pop artist Ayaz Ismail. In recent years they have found plenty of acclaim through their ability to fuse together Western Pop with Bollywood and World music to create masterfully concordant Future Pop soundscapes.

It’s safe to say finding more entrancing rhythms from an up and coming Pop artist would be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. With Let Us Pretend, the uniquely distinctive artist has left us hooked on their radio-ready sound which is all too easy to sink into and forget that there are millions of other love songs on the airwaves. Their soft harmonic vocal talent is only matched by their ability to construct an immersive nuanced instrumental arrangement.

Zizzo World – Hate You Now: Fiercely Progressive Future Pop

It’s not all too often that you’ll get to hear guitars in a Pop single which rival the atmospheric aural treats served up by Post Punk and Shoegaze artists. But the prelude to artist and producer Zizzo World’s upcoming single “Hate You Now” instantaneously gripped our attention with the cold jangling notes.

Yet, it wasn’t all too long before Hate You Now had evolved into a high-octane mix of future pop. The build-ups are palpitatingly suspenseful, in fact, each new sequence in this constantly surprising and veracious mix will leave you gripped by the authentic energy. Even though Hate You Know is an angst-driven single, there’s plenty of biting catharsis found within the single for anyone looking to aurally vent.

We should be getting as excited about Zizzo World as we got about Chase & Status.

You can check out Zizzo World’s progressively fierce track Hate You Now for yourselves. You can also head over to SoundCloud where you’ll be able to check out earlier releases.

Future Pop Meets Techno in DIA’s Second Single “Call from Space”

“Call from Space” is the second evocatively visceral Electronica single to be released by up and coming artist DIA. With emotive Pop Rock vocals fading in over Minimalistic Techno beats, the single offered all of the accessibility of a Pop track alongside the multi-layered progressive nature of a Techno track.

Expect plenty of atmospheric build-ups before DIA allows the euphoria to break along with a succinct amount of soul being poured into the otherwise alien mix through the vocals.

With most tracks finding a tone or emotion is as easy as hitting play, but with Call from Space, there was a lamentable subtle moroseness entwined with the slight spills of euphoria from the softly sonic electronic effects. The depth of the soundscape didn’t fail to give me chills, and I’m fairly certain I won’t be the only one.

Zima – Our Time: A Future Pop Playlist Essential


As soon as you hit play on up and coming EDM artist Zima’s upcoming single “Our Time”, the sticky-sweet soul of the track hits you like a cathartic tonne of bricks.

Euphoria is perceptibly at Zima’s deft command both when it comes to the anthemic beats and their harmonically magnetic vocals. There’s a slight Indie feel to Our Time which ensures that the Future Pop single could never resonate as saccharine. Expect atmospheric build-ups, meltingly mellifluous melodies, and vocals which will stick to your synapses like superglue. But the key to the mesmerism in Our Times is the charismatic creative soul which Zima pours into the naturally euphoric single.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out Zima’s latest single, but in the meantime, head over to Spotify where you can listen to their debut hit “Fly With Me”

TAELA – Dance Drink Repeat: Tribally Rhythmic Moody Dance Pop

“Dance Drink Repeat” may only be the second single released by breaking EDM Pop artist TAELA. But they have already won over plenty of Pop fans with their rhythmically flawless sound.

If the top 40 was based on vocal talent alone, you’d find TAELA’s name close to the top. But instead of going with the usual ecstatically abrasive Pop vocal style, she’s incorporated a slightly melancholic sensibility around the danceable euphoria which spills from Dance Drink Repeat.

For all too long we’ve had to ingest Pop that is produced under the pretence that anyone hits the club or the bottle without some kind of niggling sadness creeping into their psyche. But Dance Drink Repeat perfectly alludes to how lonely it can feel to be surrounded by party vibes when you’re drinking to forget. It’s a hard-hitter in every way possible.

Anna Cole – No Regrets: Flawlessly Nuanced Pop

Breaking Pop artist Anna Cole may only be 14 years old, but her infectiously upbeat anthemic Pop style boasts the same maturity (if not more) of artists who have been producing for decades.

Anna Cole has recently dropped her latest vibrantly playlist-worthy single “No Regrets” which brings plenty of danceable rhythm while making no compromises to the lyrical depth. The beats may bleed aural ecstasy, but the vocals also prove to be a good vibe necessity as they perpetually feed palpable euphoria into the mix.

A flawlessly nuanced vocal range isn’t required to create a perennial Pop earworm, but as No Regrets proved, it definitely helps. Good luck getting the chorus out of your head.

You can check out the official music video to Anna Cole’s single No Regrets which dropped on August 15th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now.

Carly Opacic – Farther: Resonantly Vibrant Future Pop

“Farther” is the latest single released by up and coming Indie Pop artist Carly Opacic which perfectly fuses vintage tones with a contemporary vibrant appeal. But more importantly, Carly Opacic has created her latest single through the motivation to make the world a less alienating place.

Many people presume that their life experiences are individualistic, but it is tracks such as Farther which remind us that we have more in common than we realise. Along with the compassionate sentiment the track was orchestrated with, you’ll also be able to find a myriad of music styles. From Trap to Funk, to Jangle Pop, to Electronica. It’s all weaved into the experimentally rhythmic single to create the perfect track to slip into and feel the evocative catharsis.

Lýkoh Releases their Fifth Radio-Ready R&B Pop Single “Safe & Warm”

For their fifth single, up and coming Pop artist Lýkoh has created a progressively immersive R&B Pop hit which unfolds like nothing you’ve ever heard before.

The prelude to Safe & Warm may fool you into believing that you’re going to be treated to the same brand of R&B Pop which you have been ingesting since the 80s. But the slow and sonorous soundscape complete with powerfully harmonic vocals takes its time to seamlessly evolve into an offering of high-octane EDM Future Pop – we definitely didn’t anticipate that happening.

There’s plenty of hype around Lýkoh’s stylistic take on R&B Pop right now, and if you’re not sharing in it, it’s safe to say that you’re missing out.

Binoy – Things Fall Apart: Ominously Sultry Alt Pop

Following on from the success of their earlier released 2019 singles, Los Angeles Pop Singer-Songwriter Binoy has recently dropped his latest experimentally endearing Pop track “Things Fall Apart”.

With an eclectic instrumental arrangement and an even more un-archetypal array of different genre influences, it’s unlikely that you’ll have heard another soundscape quite like Things Fall Apart before.

With Rock Pop vocals and an ominous synth-led 80s inspired melody, Binoy has created a futuristically compelling single which allows you to soak up the accessibility of the familiar elements of sound under a brand-new stylistic contortion. I’m also ridiculously pleased that Binoy utilised their sax skills in Things Fall Apart which seemed to evolve with each and every progression.

There’s little room to wonder why Binoy’s tracks are always incredibly well received.

ANDRADA – I’ll Be Lovin’ You: Vibrantly Euphoric Future Pop

Breaking Pop artist ANDRADA’s big beat summer Pop hit “I’ll Be Lovin’ You” didn’t fail to attract plenty of hype since its release on August 27th. With the infectious rhythm and energy, the track has to offer, it’s easy to see why.

I’ll Be Lovin’ You is a flawless radio-ready feat of high-octane danceable Future Pop which will undoubtedly become your new perennial Pop earworm once you hit play. But the single is much, much more than your average offering of melodic euphoria which falls down to ANDRADA’s naturally harmonic vocals. The way in which the soundscape constantly evolves also plays a heavy hand in amplifying the immersive magnetism in I’ll Be Lovin You.

You can check out the official video to ANDRADA’s latest single I’ll Be Lovin’ You for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now.
