RYDEN was featured on FNT a few weeks back, delivering a feeling that was different, above-average for the genre it was tapping into, and was much deeper than the messages most songs convey. We reached out to RYDEN for an exclusive interview, highlighting her background, the story being her latest single “Dear God ft. Chase Allen”, and more.
What part of your background led to focusing on production?
RYDEN: Music has always been my first love. I’ve been in music in some form or other my entire life. I started out playing classical piano when I was a kid, and then in high school I played first violin in an orchestra for 4 years. All my years after that were spent in hip hop. In college, all I did was ditch class all the time to hang out in studios and record as a singer/songwriter. Even then, I’d always looked up to producers more than any other role in the industry.

So… Jack Rabbit gets evil huh? This mix is creepy as hell, but good, really good. With some of the darkest music we’ve heard accompanied by various creepy movies quotes, this mix perfectly sets the mood for these days leading up to Halloween. We had no idea that the rabbit had this side to him, seeing as all of his previous mixes are so jolly and playful… his range in music taste is impressive.

The 16-year-old bass music maven turns Sofi Tucker’s original anthem into a brooding, four-on-the-floor thriller. “Déjà Vu Affair” is transformed into a four-minute ride through billowing soundscapes, complete with edging synths, echoing vocal cuts, and a driving bassline.

This is the second big tune from this guy SEMLR that I have just absolutely loved. He took the original and added a completely different tropical vibe with a melody that just gets me vibing. Keep an eye/ear out for this artist, I think we’ll be seeing alot more of his name in the future.

There are very few tracks that we receive that impress us anymore. Our submission inbox is a wave of mediocrity, chalked full of producers and artists that consistently miss the mark. When we received a submission from ITSNOREQUESTS, we knew we had a serious track on our hands. NY based DJ and producer Razz instantly caught our ear with his infectious new “Overthinking” single featuring rising singer and unicorn in training Aviella (Winder).
A serious contender for single of the month, “Overthinking” explores those feels of uncertainty we’ve all experienced in a relationship gone awry. It has all the music elements we love. Vocal chops, check. Awesome female vocals, check. A drop that you want to loop on repeat, check. While the single is stream only for the time being, we expect this massive collaboration to skyrocket in the weeks to come.
