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.

Robin Novaku has released the most evocative Future Pop single of Summer 2020 with “Hold On”

It’s safe to say that EDM Pop producer, songwriter and composer Robin Novaku’s latest single “Hold On” featuring Jonas Wak is the most evocative Pop single of summer 2020.

Their instantly immersive, blissfully light soundscape carries an Indie vibe to amplify the accessibility of the Future Pop beat which is perfectly complemented by magnetically warm vocals. Neither the vocals nor the lyrics hold back on spilling plenty of amorously romantic appeal.

The hype around Robin Novaku’s sound is more than easy to understand with their effortlessly feel-good, organically resonant mixes. If you like to have your finger on the pulse of up and coming talent, you’ll want the Albanian artist on your playlists. There isn’t a vibe check on earth he couldn’t pass.

Gemma Moon – Hunters: Experimental Indie Dance Pop with Love from Manchester

Hunters is the second single released by Manchester based Indie artist Gemma Moon. A lot of artists have made me proud to live in Manchester which is exactly the sentiment that hit me listening to Hunters unravel.

The Dance Pop artist may have thrown swathes of Dub and Drum and Bass over her single, but the acoustic elements kept Gemma Moon’s single emotionally-steeped and authentically indie.

Whilst there is very little in the way of experimentalism that will surprise me no one could ever come to expect the sound of sweeping across a ukulele fretboard to pierce through an EDM Pop hit. Instrumentals aside Gemma Moon’s vocals are just as captivating, they pour even more essence into the already dizzyingly euphoric beat. Gemma promised a new ear worm, and she certainly delivered.
