The young Russian D-Anna, a singer-songwriter  who now made the move to Boston to study at at Berklee College of Music brings us a lovely single in ‘Not Today‘, and this young singer shows us her incredible vocal ability in her debut single.

Australia’s Nick Chilli Haze leads the way with new single ‘City Lights’

Australia’s Nick Chilli Haze leads the way with new single ‘City Lights‘ and this is a superb effort.

The small town Australian kid moved to Hollywood to chase his dreams. This is the story here, the life was set and everything was going so well, playing at all the venues and really going for it. The lights were bright and the dream was alive. So many memories and love, some tough times too but you two made it work. Then, tragedy stuck and the story was flipped over upside down.

After losing his musical soul mate and best friend, Australia’s Nick Chilli was in turmoil. However with the strength inside and his memory so clear to see to do what they plan was no matter what, this is a sad story but one of strength. This is a lovely song, filled with heart and gratitude. This is what music should really be about, just making music that matters. Anything fake is no where to be seen. This is the soul and life of what it is all about.

‘Parabasis’ from Turkish producer Can Bora Tanzer is a mysterious electro classic

Parabasis‘ from Can Bora Tanzer is a mysterious electro classic from the Turkish producer that soon lifts you into a different state of mind.

Istanbul, Turkey is home of Can Bora Tanzer and he makes music about the hidden darkness coming from the bare truth of life. Sure true words spoken and the distortion here is so fascinating, the sound like no other.

Combined with classical and ethnic music elements, he synthesizes them together to create a tasty blend of music that is a bit spooky too. The hairs on my back and arms shoot up as I listen to this gifted producer make this classic. This is a song that I have never heard before and I like how this is different to most and not just a recycled track that has been done a million times before.

Parabasis‘ from Can Bora Tanzer, the talented Turkish producer, soon puts you in a zone of reflection as the brooding beat just gets better and better. The vocals really grab you and you feel the down-tempo electronic, ambient, alternative and new age experiences. This is a track to turn up real loud in the car or in your room, this is a sound of a morning gaze at night time. You feel like you are in a different world and this is a terrific electro single that glistens in your body.
