Blanka Barbara stomps in the door with techno’s ‘Lunar Passage’

Nature-inspired Melodic Techno producer and DJ, Blanka Barbara invites you on a journey through alternate realities and she is here with her latest track that stomps through the speakers called ‘Lunar Passage‘ that has been released by Rabbit Records.

After recently becoming a resident of 4AM Events in London, you feel like this is this DJ’s time to shine. Will she take her opportunity or let it slip? I am confident that this young lady will take her chance and become one of Europe’s best Techno producers.

The Melodic Techno producer and DJ from London takes us on a space-filled journey of galaxy-finding music that is so perfect for a night time party. This is a song that is so vibrant and the beat takes you on a fun trip with the stars up the sky. This is perfect for partying with friends and when this song drops in the club, expect things to heat up real hot.

Blanka Barbara is on top form for ‘Lunar Passage‘ and I love the techno vibes here. She is a supremely talented producer with bags of talent to make anyone blush.

London’s Sam Seccombe sings of love that has worn out on ‘Unboyfriend’

Sam Seccombe returns with a sad tale about a relationship that has soured on his indie pop fueled ‘Unboyfriend‘.

Sam Seccombe is a 22 year-old with a love for all things musical. He is a producer and guitarist and singer-songwriter that is based in South West London.

Unboyfriend‘ is about realizing the unhealthy nature of a rapidly deteriorating relationship and seeking escape from it. It’s a bold statement that demands equality in a situation which remained unbalanced for too long. This is such a true feeling and you do feel stuck, like you are in a mud pool and can’t get out. If this is isn’t sorted out quickly it can lead to a unhappy heart.

Unboyfriend‘ from Sam Seccombe is a sad pop story that is well-sung by the London singer who seems to improve after each track. He sings with soul and passion that visualizes this story so well.

‘I’m Not Like You’ from London’s Best King IV is an ode to the new school UK Hip Hop

Best King IV is a London-based emcee who returns with his new conflicted rap single called ‘I’m Not Like You‘.

King is an 18 year old rapper, vocal engineer and producer. He makes music of all genres, blending them with Hip-Hop. From Jazz to Lo-Fi, R&B to Pop, the only thing his songs all have in common is the blend of Hip-Hop.

I’m Not Like You‘ from UK rapper Best King IV is a deep dive into the world of British Hip Hop right now. This is a song about wanting certain things that are cool but you don’t really want them. It might be shoes, watches or girls. You are still trying to find your way in life and work about what you really like and what to be. The pressure to dress like what is in fashion is massive these days and a real shame really. We should be able to dress anyway you want.

Best King IV from ‘I’m Not Like You‘ is a fine new effort from the talented London rapper.

This new track from the British boys is all about getting away from this crazy world with that special soul. You just want to break away and get up in the sky, heading far away from the madness on earth.

The Shop Window have an indie-pop kind of feel to them and are certainly a pleasure to put up on full volume. They have a rhythmical style about them and you can’t but help notice their Britpop vibe. This is a top quality act that impress on this catchy track.

‘Overtime’ is a story of being cheated on by Paul Shepherd & Mikki

UK producer, writer and label owner Paul Shepherd & singer Mikki are back with a new bouncy indie track and this one slips in called ‘Overtime‘.

This is a story about being treated badly by the man you love so much. They keep on deceiving you and you wonder why. You have been so loyal the whole time and he keeps on creeping around and flirting with other girls. You are are at your wits end as he said that he could be trusted.

The vocal delivery from Mikki is so raw and honest, you can feel the pain and frustration in her voice. I like her consistent delivery in her unique drawl that seeps through the speaker. The production is top notch too and this feels like a 90’s flavored song with lots of style.

Paul Shepherd & Mikki make a fun team that stride through the crowd and make their move in 2020.

Polyna transfixes our hearts on ‘Angel’

Angel‘ is the brand new release from the fast-rising Polyna and she certainly has our attention.

Polyna originally hails from a ‘dark town’ in Siberia which doesn’t appear on any map at all and is a Plutonium making town. She wasn’t going to let this stand in her way and embarked on an artistic career which eventually saw her go on to become one of the most successful performers in Moscow’s artistic community.

Polyna now lives in East London in the UK. She is currently preparing to release her debut album which is a collection of Arctic, frosted art-pop with emotional and sometimes dramatic intimacy. This is such a cinematic marvel to behold and you can see the talent dripping off the speakers. Her music could be called angel-pop as her music has that effect on your soul.

Angel‘ from Polyna is a terrific song and I get lost in her music. She is one artist to keep an eye on as you just know that she would be amazing live.

A beautiful tribute to Stevey from new UK artist Low Girl on ”ICU”

Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire, England is the home of indie UK singer Lowgirl. She is back with a fitting tribute to her friend Stevey on ”ICU”.

Lowgirl sings with such meaning on ”ICU”. She talks about memories of moments together, his support while performing live and how he always wanted to be in her music video. This time has arrived but isn’t the way it should of happened. Nonetheless, Lowgirl sends her friend a wonderful tribute that he would be proud of with a stunning song, full of soul and absolute meaning.

With much sadness, Stevey is not coming home but this is such an amazing track that it puts tears in my eyes. To lose someone so close is a horrible experience as you saw them so close. Lowgirl’s ”ICU” is such a sad but memorable track.

“Some people will be able to identify with the anticipation of a call from the hospital. Every day we would wait and every day the news would be worse. Being in that constant state of suspense starts to eat away at any hope you felt for things to work out. In the end the only thing I could do for him was to write about him” –Low Girl

ICU” is just a taste of a string of upcoming releases that will culminate with a debut EP in the Autumn of 2020. For a new artist that is just getting started, it’s so admirable that Low Girl is pushing forward during this tough time. She is a special soul with incredibly real lyrics and her music is so well-received. Lowgirl is an artist to keep an eye on closely.
