Hip-Hop | RYDEN Shares About The Deeper Message Behind “Dear God”, Her Background, Dream Collaborations & More
Posted by VMan on October 24, 2016
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.

Tastytreat does no wrong. Never sounding the same, the L.A. based duo created by John Smith and Devin Hardy never stick to just one sound or sub-genre and today’s post proves it. Blending together a couple different genres onto “U and Me” it’s like they know exactly what I want to hear! These guys are opening for Getter in L.A. on his What the Frick tour in the coming weeks, so if you’re on the Left Coast don’t miss out on that show, it’ll be too wild. Listen to “U And Me” above now!

Mosimann is one of France’s biggest dance music producers, having been featured on a variety of national TV spots around the country (and Europe) as well as being one hell of a showman (Mosimann has also created a custom DJing tabletop that allows his fans to see him DJ during his live sets). His previous release “The Gifted One” was a dope present from the solo producer in 2016. He’s now expand the themes of this original more so with fresh remixes from the likes of Florian Kempers, Sebastian Wibe, Zetyd, and his own person edit of the tune.
It was “The Gifted One (Sebastian Wibe Remix)” that captured my attention today, the single is as if Sum 41 and an electronic pop song had a baby – a startling unique balance of raw boldness and power alongside glistening flowing electronic vocals, the platform for this being provided by Mosimann’s original production and the voice of Uhre. “The Gifted One (Sebastian Wibe Remix)” is not to be missed.

Released on Armada Deep, Boris Smit, formerly know as Beauriche, one of my favorite deep house producers, is back with a club banger “Magic Trip,” collaborating Girls Love DJs. If you’ve had a chance to catch a DJ set from Boris, you already know what to expect, he sets the vibe for the night, and that’s what you get for “Magic Trip,” you get lost in the ‘feel good’ groove, and you dance. Press play, it’s a must listen!
