Pop-Electronic Princess Dominique Releases New Single “Use Me”

Baby, I’ll produce your song

And so she does. Dominique is an artist to keep on your radar, there’s no doubt about that. With her delicately built tracks, we get a simple yet intriguing artist who grabs attention with her music that she creates completely on her own. Following her cover of Cassie’s “Me & U”, which was supported on Buzzfeed, the singer/songwriter released this new single “Use Me”.

The song is a great example of her pop abilities, reminding you of artists such as Elohim and KLOE with their alternative, quirky female power voices. “Use Me” is a fun, spunky, and cool-girl themed vibe. It gives us off a feeling of being the rebel with a cause. You can hear the 808 basses used to construct the first layer of the track and how it is carried along with her voice, which is emoting feelings of anger, frustration, and desire. “Use Me” is an exhilarating song perfect for the summer jam anthem season. The song is upbeat and almost motivating, though it is completely a disheartening topic of re-finding oneself and being lost in the first place. She is an extremely talented young woman who is relatable, intelligent, and passionate about the music.

Dominique began her interests in the electronic realms of music while she was studying at New York University. At the time, the songstress was majoring in Biology, but to fill her time, she learned how to use music productions softwares such as Ableton Live, and then began to collaborate with other producers. This made her realize that she truly enjoyed this field and wished to pursue it whole-heartedly.

With a few singles released, filling out her resume, Dominique completed her debut EP in 2016. Almost instantaneously, the project received critical acclaim by sources like Entertainment Weekly, The 405, and Earmilk. The entirety of the EP was a DIY project where she had self-produced and self-released it all on her own. With over 2 million streams on Spotify now, and three Hype Machine chart positions, she is on her way to higher ground.

Dominique fills us in on what her most personal song “Use Me” was inspired by:

“‘Use Me’ is a track about being so hopelessly in love with someone that you’d do anything and everything just to be around them. Although the vibe of the song feels more upbeat and happy, it’s one of the saddest songs I’ve ever written. The song itself feels like a turning point in my artistic direction as most of my life has changed since I put out my EP in December. The music I’m writing and the songs I’m producing sound quite different from my older material and I feel like I’m evolving as an artist. I’m also pursuing different projects in my career, like producing for other artists. ‘Use Me’ details one of my first experiences doing so.”

The New York City artist is not stopping here now! With her synths and boards by her side, she intends to release another project soon and prepares to put on some big shows.

“Lose It All” with Swedish Producer Finis Mundi’s Amazing Dance Track

Stockholm Syndrome

Get lost in this hypnotic single “Lose It All” by the Stockholm-based producer himself, Finis Mundi.

It has an incredible rhythm and a striking vocal progression that carries on throughout the song making the Mura Masa-esque track a  melange of hip hop & pop sensation. The song is seriously irresistible, and it just happens to captivate you and your dance soul so intensely that it you can’t keep from replaying it over and over again.

17310225_1204085299689535_191062288064181888_o.jpg

This being Mundi’s second single yet, it’s already a masterpiece! Raised in Lindingö, Sweden, the producer has quite the expertise in the art of sonic design. The mystery man behind the sound had released his debut single “Say That” (featuring NOVAA), which proceeded to receive half a million streams and ranking at No. 22 on the Spotify Global Viral Charts! “Say That” is an ominous melody, yet for his second record, Mundi took a new spin with a more upbeat tone and a harder impact in order to let the vibe resonate within the spaces of the room. The fragmented automaton voices layered over the sounds of oriental plucks and reverbs of the continuous loop of synths is spellbinding and mesmeric.

“Lose It All (What If)” is a tidal wave building up and slowing down in just the correct areas and diversifying its sound in just the right ways. In fact, it will be interesting to see where this song will lead to as it seems to be an even cleaner, more-constructed track compared to the first. We should expect to see this artist more often as his productions are heard and recognized for their artistry. Mundi is only getting better and has proven his first success worthy of the streams it received, so why shouldn’t this single be just as (if not more) triumphant?

Women vocals have taken control of the airwaves these days, and it only makes sense that artists like Evee are thriving. Voices like hers are confident, silky, calming, and forceful! They insert a vibe of joy and when paired with the fast-paced rhythms and metallic undertones of synths, they are able to command the dance floor.

This is the artist’s electronic remix to her highly acclaimed pop single “Lone Wolf”, which released back in February of this year. The song received wide recognition and was written up by publications such as PopDust, TWIST magazine, and Next2Shine and also found on Spotify playlists like Girl Power, Top Hits 2017, and Starbucks Coffeehouse Pop.

The not your average cat lovin’ pop artist was and is inspired by artists such as Aurora, Sia, The Decemberists, Jessie J, Cruel Youth, and Childish Gambino. This wonder woman has done much in her career at such a young age. She was a classically-trained opera singer who has modeled professionally, and also acted in various theatre shows such as Dante’s Inferno, Ragtime, & Rent.

This pop star began a journey  through the theatrical world and dance, but it wasn’t until recently when she found her voice to be her greatest asset. Now signed to Siri Music Group, the artist has made space for herself in the one of the toughest sectors of the music scene and one that is ever-changing– pop and electronica.

Listen to the song now to rage on through the night!

The airy, pixie-like whines in the song add an element of sensual horror. The entirety of the track is like a down-tempoed 90’s-track with a fast-paced undertone and a sweet-indie pop lullaby. The electricity in the light energy thriving throughout the song ignites a hopefulness in the tune, though a melancholy topic of coming-of-age and leaving behind the past.

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. As an ambitious extraordinaire, he even released this single via his own HEXAGON label.

I wanted to make a feel-good song with a positive message that will put smiles on people’s faces, while incorporating my trademark production style.” says the rhythm curator.

He continues to comment under the video, “this music video was shot in Washington, where I got together with the “Cutting Shapes” crew for a special reunion. Much love to Gabby J David, Ricki Huff and the rest of the crew.

[Exclusive] Interview with Coast Modern on New Album & Fav LA Tacos

Take a dive into their chill, tropical sound waves

This dynamic duo, made up of Luke Atlas and Coleman Trapp, is up to something and that something is their forthcoming debut album which is to become the perfect set list of jams for you this summer! The expected release is to be July 28th, so be sure to mark your calendars for when this special day arrives.

A new track we have gotten a taste of is their recent release “Dive”, which is a single off the upcoming compilation. Billboard said “Here’s another certified jam to add to your summertime playlist, courtesy of Coast Modern.”

The best way to describe their music? I’d say it’s the sound of Weezer’s Island in the Sun meets the Beach Boys in a wistful indie dreamland of sorrow and bliss. When you hear their music, you are transported to a sort of middle world of dimensions where  you really have no cares at all and just let the music take you away in this endless stream of consciousness. I decided to take a dive with the guys and learn more about the makings of their sound and little more about them in general.

The guys are always known to be fun and cheeky, and so I thought it would be fun to ask a few unconventional interview questions to set the right scene.

#tbt 💪pumped to do this stuff again next month. 👀 u soon‼️

A post shared by Coast Modern (@coastmodernmusic) on

When I asked 1/2 of Coast Modern about their sound and the genre he perceived themselves as, he replied “It’s funny that before we signed our publishing deal our record deal, I didn’t even know that alternative was a genre, and that kind of surprised me when that was a thing.” He continued to explain the concept behind their recently released track: “when we wrote ‘Dive’ we were kind of trying to capture that nostalgic, youthful excitement. Maybe it’s like fresh love, maybe it’s like exploration. It’s also just very tropical vibes.”

Coast Modern quite literally tries to aim for their namesake, “modern”, in the sense that they are pushing the boundaries of their alternative pop peers and hoping to create a genre where they lead the way all the way through. In other words, their genre could be considered a misfit of alternative rock bands as their pop/electronic influences seep into their old school, beach house aura.

18892988_1887711078151517_619351911904625705_n.jpg

Similarly, these boys are masterminds behind their brand, utilizing bold, colorful graphics behind their cover art and marketing to match their eclectic sound. Trapp, who writes and produces everything with Atlas as well as sings when they perform live, explained that “early on we knew we wanted something that was bold and had lots of colors. We dug through some artists that were great at that, and luckily the first choice we had, Dai Ruiz, knew exactly what we wanted. She was awesome and we’re glad that we’re still working with her up to this point.”

He stammered for a bit when I asked who were his favorite artists, and justifiably so. “Like I have a thousand answers,” he laughed in exasperation. “Like when I was younger discovering music, it was of course like Led Zeppelin, but I’ve been so inspired in the past couple years by so many artists. Errrr, I don’t even know where to begin. I’d say Dessert, they put out a single last year called “Eyes Wide Shut”, and it comes to my mind because of how fun it was. The most ill party vibes, and I call it “ill” because they played a 90’s hip-hop sample with this very underwhelming melody over it, and the juxtaposition is just very inspiring. There’s also a band called Mini Mansions that I liked and then this collaboration project called Soft Hair that did a song “Lying has to Stop”, and it’s like butter to your ears”, he says excitedly. You could just hear the passion in his voice as he named these artists.

Trapp went on to tell me that his soul song would have to be the classic “Sitting On the Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding. Why you ask? “Because I got this feeling when I was younger that there is something much deeper than what is sitting on the surface of the lyrics, and  it was the first time I ever got that feeling, so it really stuck with me. Like instead of talking about sitting  on a dock talking about watching time pass, when I heard it, I got this really deep sensation that it’s actually about like going through different lives and eternity, so it gave me this weird out of body experience and it stuck with me.”

I had to ask where their dream place would be if they could perform anywhere, to which he replied jokingly (but pretty seriously) “In space”. LOL. Then he followed that response by saying that he would also like to perform somewhere in Asia, like Japan.

The boys’ history goes way back, but for Colemann specifically, it started back when he was 18 producing for all kinds of rappers and singers, then inspiring to pursue his own music career. The LA scene was a great stepping stone for the boys to get their music out there.

13680444_1740546162868010_7432286684182348188_o.jpg

I asked him what would be his favorite taco place in LA if he had to give us advice. “I really like janky places, not trendy ones, so I would have to say King Taco, Taco King, …” If you couldn’t tell, he likes his regal tacos. “Really the jankier the place, the better it is haha!”

One thing Trapp can’t leave without is his spare guitar, which sits in the back of his truck for whenever inspiration strikes. The guys plan on having more releases and projects coming out down the line in the next 5-10 years, so fans will be on the look out.

After releasing their hit single, “Hollow Life”, the LA-based act has released numerous tracks to keep their musical mojo momentum going. And it only proved to be true as their were garnering air time from notable organizations like SiriusXM Alt Nation and KCRW. They received set time to perform  live at SXSW, and they were able to open on tour with BORNS, The Wombats, and Temper Trap! Quite the resume they have here. Blogs and fashion press would find them and only help build their name and publicity, and they continue to grow and become more well known as people begin to recognize their powerful and well-crafted sound.

I asked Trapp what they are on the verge of, to which he replied, “being a ‘meme’– we want to be a part of the internet. But as much as we want to be a meme, we’re also doing everything we can to like like make life more physical and to make our brand really something that you can touch…”

It was a pleasure speaking with Coast Modern and I look forward to hearing the full-length album!

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.

Alternative R&B Artist Chris Buxton Drops Single “Swerve”

Swerve on me, but not this song

The Rock Hill, South Carolina native, Chris Buxton, drops his new single “Swerve” for all of us to jam to. The single is actually one of the hip-hopper’s best tracks, with a great start that catches your attention from the start using claps in a repeated pattern. His voice is strong and smooth all at once in this ever-flowing record that moves you this way and that way, as if to swerve us along with the disillusioned love that is the subject of this song.

The cover art of the track is also an eye-catching image that fits well with the song itself. Elements of martian-like tonalities sprinkled throughout the track embrace Buxton’s silky vocals and support the melancholia that the artist feels for falling for the tough, hard-to-get lover. Broken-hearted, but full of inspiration, comes this song, produced by the masterful Hiko Momoji.

The lyricist himself explains:

“Basically it’s a song that drew inspiration from wanting something you can’t have. I feel like as people we have all been in a situation where we liked someone and we’re willing to go through it all to have them. However, this song is about me looking back at the time and wishing that girl would have curved me or (Swerve on me) because she never truly liked me. I was willing to give my all and she was willing to take advantage of that. I fell in love with what we could have been and not who she was.”

The melody has a great chord progression that is both inviting and haunting– definitely head-nodding worthy and memorable.

With a series of busting singles, this artist is growing his fan base one release at a time. Hustling hard, he’s got the musical talent to capture a crowd’s ears with his unique, yet familiar sound. His last hit releases were revealed 3 months ago titled “Selena” ft. Croosh and Tessellated, which received 97.3 K streams on SoundCloud and 5 months ago called “Mary, Lucy, I“, which received over 102 K streams!

The 21 year old independent artist tries to meld his worlds and influences in Hip-Hop, R&B and Pop. He has already been noticed by artists such as Skizzy Mars and has been featured by notable publications like MTV – The Wrap Up, Revolt TV, DJ Booth, The Daily Loud and on EARMilk.

All in all, he intends to continue playing the music industry game as he produces more impressive tracks and is now working hand-in-hand with Skizzy Mars’ Penthouse Music collective.
