  • Tourist

    Tourist

    Why have I never written about one of my favorite producers before? His latest EP Hush now brings me the opportunity. Tourist (real name William Philips) is a UK based producer with a danceable UK sound with hints of Garage and pop. I like that he has radio-friendly tracks but never gets too commercial sounding […]

  • Gabriel Garzón-Montano

    Gabriel Garzón-Montano

    Gabriel Garzón-Montano’s popularity got an enormous boost when Drake sampled “6 8” for his track “Jungle”. The Brooklyn-born singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist released his latest album (and major-label debut) Jardín earlier this year and its sound is a mixture of modern R&B, funk and ‘neo-soul’. Gabriel grew up in a musical environment as his mom was a classically […]

    Everything is Recorded is the alias of producer Richard Russell who also happens to be the head of XL Recordings. So he has the right connections for guest appearances right?

And there’s a lot more new music coming our way! “Make […]

    Blood Cultures is an anonymous producer/multi-instrumentalist from New Jersey, USA. His first track “Indian Summer” was released in 2013 followed by singles “Mercury Child” and “Meavy Hetal”.

  • Firstworld

    Firstworld

    The producer behind Firstworld is South Florida artist/producer Kris Alvarez. He released his first self-titled single “Firstworld” last May, but I only stumbled across this dreamy, mysterious track thanks to Spotify’s ‘Discover Weekly’ playlist. Firstworld was actually sort of a darker and more gloomy side-project for main band ‘Sigh Kicks’. But since they’ve recently split […]

  • LOYAL

    LOYAL

    The British quartet LOYAL make catchy, almost anthemic, electronic-pop music. A lot of their songs have a positive and hopeful message. Like their last single “Reset in Color”: “The song was inspired by the mass shooting in Orlando and the vote to leave Europe which happened weeks apart, it felt like ‘literally’ the colours of […]

    Danish songwriter and producer Goss released his first track “I Want To Know????” about nine months ago. Since that time he has released another three tracks with “Soo Bad” being his latest.

  • Opal People

    Opal People

    Opal People are Greco-Roman’s newest signed act. They released their double A-side single “IKYTIF / Falling Out” this week. Especially “IKYTIF” is one upbeat track with retro sounding synths (those organ sounds!), a catchy chorus with falsetto vocals. I don’t have much more info about them, not even a promo photo, but my best bet […]

    Mattis – Loverboy

    Copenhagen based Mattis scores with his first release, single “Loverboy”. According to his Soundcloud page Mattis describes his sound in a tongue-in-cheek way as ‘This is viking soul.’ And soulful it is. Not much is known about the Danish artist. Besides that his last name is ‘Jakobsen’ and he apparently is a 6’8″ tall former […]

    This London based producer/songwriter-singer/DJ (James McIntosh) has named himself after the Dutch city Utrecht, ain’t that nice? In an old interview he said about his choice for the name: “I think I liked the idea that Utrecht is pretty much like some of the provincial towns and cities of England (like Kingston-upon-Thames, where I’m from).
