Lostboycrow Sails Us Away with New Single “I’m a Sailor Not a Salesman”

Sail Away

Lostboycrow is back with another stunning single that will take you worlds away. The LA-based pop artist and producer released the track “I’m a Sailor Not a Salesman”, yesterday and it has lived up to expectations. Slower than the more recent tracks he has revealed, the song is smooth and beautiful. “It’s synthetic, it’s just not fair”, sings the songster.

This new material comes as part of his successful three-part LP, Traveler. The single is now the second song to be revealed from what is to be his highly anticipated Traveler: The Second Legend project! It is disparate from the other tracks as it includes much more raw instrumentation, from the R&B guitar lines, to the pop-touched vocals, and the electro-painted tones.

The melancholy intonation in his voice makes you fall in love with the storytelling of the mystic who leads the seas and the song waves.  Lostboycrow’s voice has always been able to be strong over the compositions he designs. The voices in the background give this dream-like sensation to the already hazy soundtrack.

The Oregon-born musician is absolutely one to watch as his music is what music should be. (The single already has 33,768 streams on Spotify in less than 24 hours) “The idea that who we are and are becoming is a direction leading us to far greater places than any other pursuit. Any other motive” details Lostboycrow, as he explains the development of this beautiful and wondrous song.

Lostboycrow has always been a favorite of mine and one I feel has so much to offer to the music scene. His artistry is one that can best implement various genres at once, and every song has this element of hopeful sadness that grabs you by the heart and takes you away to better places in your mind. It’s like going off on your own dark trip to Neverland, falling in love with a broken heart, and traveling off into the world with emotions of wanderlust and blissful uncertainty.

Lostboycrow, himself, is a mystery to all, hiding behind the alluring lyrics he writes. Nonetheless, that is what makes his music that much more attractive and provocative.

Check out the song above, and stay tuned as this artist grows, creates, and strolls into our lives.

San Holo Releases New Single “One Thing” Today, Now on New Music Friday

He’s got the One Simple Thing

A lullaby that whispers a beautiful melody through an intricate composition comes the newest San Holo tune “One Thing”.

“Wandering, searching all the world for one thing” sings the light vocals of the female artist as San Holo creates a stunning track about constantly looking for the one simple thing that makes us tick or that one person who makes our world go ’round.

With a simple melody, but an uplifting atmosphere, the song about aspirations is motivational and inspiring and absolutely worth adding to your playlists. It’s got just right amount of rhythm, number of beats, and vocals to make the song a beautiful wandering daydream.

I had the chance to catch up with this incredibly talented young artist on his tour when he made his stop to Boston last Friday, performing at the well-known venue Royale. If there is any way to describe San, it is that his music is not the only thing that is great, so is the man behind the music. He is such a kind, genuine, and sweet man, and I am honored to have been able to sit next to him and chat and to be able to take pictures of his incredible show that almost sold out the entire space that could fit 1000 people!

San Holo is originally from The Netherlands, where he began his musical career, working with some of the best in the business, bitbird, Heroic, and Sony, he has been able to get his footing right in the music industry.

His hit single “Light” skyrocketed to over 83 million streams on Spotify, and continues to grow each day. He is so humble as an artist, and the connection he has with his touring team is incredibly heart warming. I loved the way they were able to interact with each with ease and calmness that it felt that though bumps always arise for big shows, nothing was going to mess with their positive state-of-minds.

San performed “Light” as both his opener and his closer, adding a perfect layer of symmetry to the night. He hyped the crowd both at the beginning and at the end of the show, leaving them showered under a hues of technicolor LED lights tones and melodies endlessly playing in their dizzy heads. He also then performed his newest single “One Thing” before it’s release to the crowd, and they absolutely adored it.

Check out the song above now, which is also on New Music Friday!

Here are some images below from the show:

Energetic Electronic Duo WITHOUT Releases their Music Video for “Love Liike This” ft. Essie

 

Search for a love like this

Now, here’s a fun duo that will always manage to have you dancing to funk vibes. Bringing back the old school genre, comes the electronic UK duo WITHOUT (Oliver Smith & Luke Vidamour).

If there was a way to describe this pair’s music, it would be best reflected in the sounds of KAYTRANADA and the vocals of RKCB and Opia. The two have been writing for a while now with songs such as  “Wanta Be”, “Your Love”, “Sum1 Else”, and “VYZA” all from their EP Cheap Touch.  They now are happy to announce the release of their new single “Love Liike This” and an mis-matched accompanying music video written and directed by Gianluca Ricceri.

Why is the music video silly? Well, it is focused upon a Sicilian synchronized swimming quartet practicing, and it actually matches really well with the music, but is so confusing to follow as to why this was the artistic choice for the song. The guys of WITHOUT explain,“There’s something about discipline that bridges sport and art – the dynamic between technicality and emotion is fascinating. We felt it would be an unusual but relevant visual for the track which itself balances synthetic sounds and beat making alongside live instrumentation and a heartfelt vocal.“

DOiBW6NXUAAXhTY.jpg-large.jpeg

Of course when they put it that way, it only makes sense as the absurdity alludes to the stylings of Mura Masa and Lido and more. WITHOUT is slowing making their debut to the music scene, especially in the UK Underground Club, which was established by Disclosure.

In this particular song, WITHOUT really pays attention to detail of when to let a beat in and when to alter the tempo and tune. In collaboration with the Scandinavian vocalist Essie, the song becomes a very fun, thrilling track with reminiscent to the 90’s. Her wavery voice during the chorus is perfectly slipped into the track and matches the sounds of the watery visuals created above. As the song places upbeat percussion throughout the entirety of the composition, we hear discipline and artistic expression it took to make the track. There are hints of gospel, video game tones, funk, soul, synthesizers and old-school pop all intertwined to one magical creation of sound.

The two have began their record label, which they call The Peace. And if it wasn’t enough having that success of releasing their own single under their label, they have also been on top of the most “shazzamed” song in the UK list, and “Wanta Be” has earned over 1 million plays across DSP’s and has ranked on the Spotify Viral chart in the US. Their singles have already made it on notable platforms such as Beats 1, Radio 1, and LA’s Dim Mak Records, and there’s WITHOUT a doubt there is still room for them to move upward in their careers.

Sounds Limitless Phoot shoot-1.jpg

Save just a little love for him

Because Don Diablo is about to make your summer just a little sweeter with his new release “Save a Little Love”. The DJ comes out with this happy-go-lucky tune of love that takes you through a whirling EDM track. As you mess around with the rhythm you honestly can’t help but start dancing and that was exactly his intention. He genuinely gets you up and going, and though the lyrics may be cheesy and simple, the humble message it gets across is one that is worth listening to and keeping in mind.

The goofy, light-hearted nature of the music video makes it impossible not to smile. The dancing is wonderful, from the lead dancer to the group in synchronized happiness. We tend to forget in our busy lives how things can  take a turn from the expected and we just have to learn how to roll with the punches. So here’s your reminder.

PLS&TY Unleashes a Killer Track that will Run You Wild

Let this song run you wild

If you’re looking for what cutting-edge means, you won’t need to use a dictionary for this one. Just press play above to hear PLS&TY’s recent release “Run Wild”. This single is an incredible banger that is sure to be a hit on the dance floor. It does not require any remixes to spice up the track, in fact PLS&TY has done that all on his own, making the track extremely riveting with its charismatic, high energy, song that is a battle cry of musical creation. The incantations are incredible, carrying the song throughout what the time frame will allow, and preparing you for the depths of life that march into the jungle and run for the great escape. The drums are haunting, like bones against the ground chiming to the sounds of a summer anthem. The synths then raise our hopes and spirits as the melody carries through a stream of our consciousness alongside the eerie chants of the song.

After the release of his hit single, “Good Vibes”, which landed a Universal Music licensing deal and re-release, and after having already been on tour for 4 months in the U.S., this artist decides that it is time to push his fans’ musical ears and challenge them to an abstract track such as this one, “Run Wild”.

Run Wild Art_Final.jpg

At a young age, PLS&TY is already noticed as a leader in the Future Bass world today (and all it took was one year)! He is known for remixing various genres like R&B and hip-hop and abstract house music which have all led him to over 30 millions plays on SoundCloud and a #1 spot on HypeMachine charts.

The DJ has also been recognized by some of the biggest in the EDM leagues including labels like OWSLA, Dim Mak, Disruptor Records/Sony Music Entertainment, Island Records, Wind-Up/Concord Music Group and more. This trippy, erotic, chill, wavy sound that this man fabricates is certainly a way to distinguish himself against the others.

PLS&TY Landscape.jpg

His music has already been featured on notable media platforms such as BBC Radio 1 and Diplo & Friends & Sirius XM, his remix of Genevieve’s “Colors” was used in a Hershey’s “Hello Happy” TV commercial; and many more accomplishments came along down the line.

PLS&TY is hitting the road and the studio and making a big bang with his musical prowess. We are all excited to see what is in store for this producer and he continues to run wild and take chances for his music.

Merk & Kremont Tell a “Sad Story (Out of Luck)” In this Summer Jam

 Out of luck, but full of heart.

Merk & Kremont are two DJ’s I was never aware of.  In fact, I had never heard of these Milan-bred producers before, until I heard their recent release “Sad Story (Out of Luck)”, which release today! If you are the type who loves electronic, downtempo music, but are looking for something new, then this is the track you should be listening to.

IZ8A8106_1_.jpg

A unique blend of pop and cultural tunes intertwined into a beautifully polished single, this song, released through Spinnin‘, captures what is means to feel broken from the ever-occurring series of unfortunate events of life.

This is honestly such a simple song, and yet, it is extremely catchy in the way the melody follows a tune you wouldn’t expect, like the way it incorporates the Spanish guitars that strum away at heart strings whilst we reminisce about the troubles we have. Notable publication, Your EDM, admits “[Merk & Kremont] show no signs of slowing down with their unique, explosive musical stamp.”

😜

A post shared by Merk & Kremont (@merkandkremont) on

From pop music to house, these guys change it up each time to fit their musical energy. They have released numerous singles on labels that include electronic tycoons such as Tiesto’s Musical Freedom, Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings, Steve Angello’s SIZE and also Spinnin. They have reached over 40,000,000 streams online! In addition, the two have performed at many highly recognized festivals and radio shows alongside acts such as Oliver Heldens, Don Diablo, Martin Garrix, Avicii, Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas, and Like Mike.

So, guessing this time, the boys lucked out after all!

[Artist Spotlight]: Rodga Takes You For a Ride with the ‘Backseat Mix’

Ride with me

You’re about to be in for an incredible musical experience as you live in the dimensions of Rodga and his eclectic beats.

11053425_887022491382620_7531608560161652292_o.png

This man knows the power of sounds as he melts together the heated tracks against the cold noises of production to create his music. He recently released his new mixtape the Backseat Mix, and the only way to best describe this project is “fire.”

This 56 minute progression of sound waves will revive you and reiterate incantations to bring out your soul and recreate new emotions with each melody. The young DJ from Toronto, Canada, a hot spot of talented artists, incorporates remixes and originals to build such a cool piece for listeners to hear.

Let Rodga take you to a whole new level through the music. Let the vibes wash over you as it resonates with you physically and emotionally. Let the music make you sway.

Rodga constructs a home from the echoes and reverbs of house, trap, and electronic music. This guy is so talented and it shows through his work and passion or the music.

“Nothing too serious on a technical standpoint but the songs in this mix are very dear to me” says the curator of sound. Rodga, the 21-year old, just before this release, also dropped a studio EP earlier in December titled “Unmask”, fully mixed and mastered to perfection. Listen to it now below:

I look forward to seeing where this artist will go as he continues to expand his musical creations and grow his fan base!
