Finding your burning passion: ‘What Do You Want’ by producer/musician Giampaolo Pasquile (ft Jimmy Burney) is the story of being frustrated with indecisiveness

The renowned Italian born and London based producer/musician Giampaolo Pasquile brings Jimmy Burney with him on this Dance-Pop journey to find the answer on the new smash hit called ‘What Do You Want‘.

The vocals steam through the glass windows and you need to open them rather quickly, as you might pass out otherwise. This is a hot song that is all about seeking the answer that you have been asking for ages. You get no response and you get the feeling that they are as cold as ice, and they should rather live in a freezer.

”Recorded Remotely and in Total Safety According to The COVID – 19 Legislation”- Giampaolo Pasquile

The vocals are so driven and seeking the answer is proving hard as they are not telling you the whole story. The frustration hits records highs during the song, the production is spot on, and the voice is executed to perfection- the mark of a team that have woven their talents together equally. The story of a producer who took the time during these horrific times to take a breath and re-imagined his music rather than sitting on his laurels.

Taken off the new full album called ‘Remote‘, this is music made with love and with those that matter most- friends who care about music.

Sometimes people you love hide things away- deep inside their soul- that they forget where it was to begin with. In a world pull of flashing lights, bad role models and social media distractions that have changed how our brains are, ‘What Do You Want‘ (ft Jimmy Burney) is a real story that emanates through all of our minds. Knowing what you want and taking it, is what Giampaolo Pasquile does through music, and he inspires us all to do precisely that. This is the only want to be truly happy inside, rather than living out others dreams and desires, that don’t match your own.

You will need a cold shower after listening on Spotify and find out more about this remarkable man on his website.

The story of absolute despondence: ‘Sorry for Me’ by Tom Ivory is the tale of going under due to heartbreak

The song starts right away with a bang, and there is no break the whole way through. The sad story of a broken soul is described through the lens of a new school Rap artist, who keeps it real the whole way through. The love has been lost and the barreling wave of getting sucked under the foamy water, is proving too much at the moment. 21 year old Candian Rapper/Producer Tom Ivory is so honest on ‘Sorry for Me‘, and this is a worrying story of how love can crush your heart into smithereens.

The fragmented splintered soul is so fractured like a broken arm, the pain is there right in front of you and won’t go away. This is the story about how this artist is taking too many pills to mask the hurt underneath. The actual pain is actually only growing day by day, and by hiding away in the dark corner questioning everything you did, the hurt is only manifesting deep into the body and mind.

His words are so honesty portrayed and he raps with such skill, the fury of being let down is so paramount to the listener. The open wounds are far from being healed, and the beat stings the tail like a jellyfish at your leg, the blood thickens and you feel like you are going to pass out all the time.

With a wild imagination and a downward cycle of self-distraction, the tale of how love can cut you up so deep, it hurts like nothing else you have ever felt. Vancouver local Tom Ivory is quite breathless on the exuberantly produced ‘Sorry for Me‘, the warning for all that fall too hard, and can’t get up. The support of real friends and kind strangers, is the only way to step up into reality again.

JJ Mickey delivers adrenalizing Techno ingenuity with “Razor Elegant”

Canadian artist and producer JJ Mickey has dropped their most mesmerising release to date, Razor Elegant. From carnivalesque kaleidoscopic whirlwinds to build-ups which will leave you tense with anticipation, you can expect all of that and more.

The excitement I usually reserve for bands such as Nekrogoblikon started to manifest as soon as Razor Elegant hit it’s momentously entrancing peak. With the artist’s proclivity to play around with 8-bit and 16-bit Chiptune along with their affinity for Trance, Industrial and Classical, JJ Mickey delivered an insanely (quite literally) immersive drop with Razor Elegant.

If you have a penchant for experimental producers, you’ll definitely want JJ Mickey on your radar.

Party it up at home with ‘Tequila Movement’ thanks to entertaining Leeds producer Big Jadavid

Even though the UK is engulfed in another lock down- much to the searing frustration of the locals- great music is made each hour. This is one of those times as Leeds based EDM producer Big Jadavid has just blessed our party-hungry souls with an absolute ripper called ‘Tequila Movement‘ that Shane Warne would be proud of.

With a sweaty beat that reminds you of the good times in the local nightclub, Leeds based EDM producer Big Jadavid gives us something to be happy about with ‘Tequila Movement’, a pumping dance single that has a smashing beat and lyrics that helps us reminisce about being friends, meeting new friends, and drinking those tasty but headache-fueled shooters. The power of the song is like a strong wave in the ocean, and is equally refreshing for the tired hearts out there in the world.

This is an entertaining EDM song that pushes our mood up all the way to 10, and doesn’t stop the whole way. A welcome track to help us forget about previous worries, even just for 4 minutes and 15 seconds.

Here is the Spotify link to hear this new track.

Christian Vels has made their Electro-Pop debut with ‘Summer Love’ (Feat. Alix)

Christian Vels’ debut track ‘Summer Love’ is aptly titled – a perfect summery electro-pop Balearic dance number, all speeding beats and guest vocalist Alix’s beautiful airy, high-register vocal line. Think David Guetta, Martin Solveig, or Avicii-style 126-BPM Ibiza pop, all gated snare and sequenced hook-line, held together by Alix’s ‘I’m only gonna break your heart’ chorus.

‘Summer Love’ is Vancouver-based musician/producer Vels’ first single release, after spending some time honing and tightening his engineering and production skills. On the basis of ‘Summer Love’, that time was very, very well-spent.Summer

London’s most promising Melodic House artist P!lot has hit the airwaves with ‘Clouds’

“Clouds” is the tantalisingly ominous latest release from up and coming Electronica artist and producer P!lot which is guaranteed to add ingenuity to your melodic house playlists.

With a constraint-less approach to production, the mix offers a dynamism which is rarely offered through electronically-mastered music. That may have a little to do with the artist’s affinity for a versatile assortment of artists. From Nick Cave to  Chemical Brothers to Radiohead to Daft Punk, their stylistic nuances echo all throughout Clouds.

There’s a slight hint of pensive trepidation lingering in the atmosphere of Clouds, allowing the track to stay true to its title. Yet, the energy within the momentum allows it to unfold as anything but an aural melancholy fest.

Wisconsin-based EDM artist ZacTomRob premiered the music video to their new track Light That Feeling on September 25th, it’s already on its way to becoming a viral hit, and with the galvanizing euphoria-laced progressions, it’s easy to see why.

ZacTomRob takes his inspiration from a wide range of artists and employs the very same versatility in his own sound. Light That Feeling is all about the rhythm, the electronic drumbeats have been replaced by the indistinguishable snaps and symbol rattles of acoustic drums, which brings an incredibly naturalistic texture to the entrancing mix. Hit play, and you may just find yourself wondering if you have been sleepwalking through life before you embraced the reviving energy in this ingeniously crafted, sonically electrifying mix.

Eliza May extends the timeline of Future Bass with her latest EDM track “I’m Coming Home”

Right from the start, Eliza May’s latest EDM Pop track “I’m Coming Home” offers dizzying rhythmic hypnotism. The sonically-crafted soundscape was crafted to offer entrancing beats along with sweetly enrapturing vocals which implore you to delve deep into the mix and drink in every ounce of honest emotion which was poured into it.

The basslines may carve some fairly caustic cuts, but in its essence, the intricately textured and layered mix is as sweet as Future Bass gets. There’s serious commercial potential behind the LA-based DJ and producer’s sound, practically celestial vocals and ability to make no compromise between danceability and sincerity.

UK Hip Hop Producer GieoSound energises the airwaves with their latest drop “Na Na Na Na!”

It is an incredibly rare occurrence for true personality to shine through in Hip Hop, but after hearing GieoSound’s latest release Na Na Na Na! I feel like I know the artist and producer well enough to invite them over for a cup of tea.

With the track which dropped on October 27th, the UK-based artist and producer put a brand new spin on the frustrative and aggressive tracks which have been created during lockdown. It’s a work of feisty defiance, but with the lush warm soft tones and GieoSound’s playfully enigmatic approach to production, you can’t help but feel a little endeared and reassured that no matter how bleak things seem, it’s all going to be okay. Even if it isn’t, at least we’ll have blazing new drops such as Na Na Na Na! to jam to as the apocalypse looms.
