Future Trap, Pop | UNIKID Shares Playful Debut EP “In Times Past” Via Frequency Music

Posted by on November 5, 2021

Based in Amsterdam, UNIKID has taken the world by storm over the past couple of years with his vibrant productions and unique sonic aesthetic. Trying to convey his energetic and happy charisma through his music, UNIKID landed a massive streaming hit with his 2020 single “Choose Me“ via Frequency Music, and has now returned to the Dutch label to share his debut EP ‘In Times Past.’ 

Spanning over 7 tracks, ‘In Times Past’ includes some of UNIKID’s most recently-released singles, such as the radio-ready “Out of Love” and the uplifting “Kids for Life,” as well as a handful of soothing instrumental pieces that perfectly accompany its focus tracks. 

“The EP is intended as a kind of digital diary for myself, to close an important period for myself,” explained UNIKID in a press statement. “All the songs of the EP contain stories from the past period and that way I was able to close those stories and save them to maybe look back on later. It is also not only a digital diary for myself, but also for others. In this way I want to close this period, to make room for a new period. The EP is a way for me to process my memories and events.”

Future Trap, Trap | St. Mary Unveils Stunning Music Video For Reo Cragun Collaboration “FIRE TO THE BLOCK”

Posted by on October 1, 2021

Hailing from Cyprus and based in LA, St. Mary hit it big last year with her impressive single “Blind” alongside Misdom, which has amassed over 500k streams just on Spotify since its release, showcasing an emotive and over the top melodic trap sound. Now, she has finally made her comeback with “FIRE TO THE BLOCK” featuring talented rapper and vocalist Reo Cragun, who is widely known for his collaborations with the likes of Flume and Ekali

Juxtaposing rattling hi-hats and deep bass with heavenly vocals and melodies, “FIRE TO THE BLOCK“ is without a doubt a stunner. With her vibrant production, St. Mary is always able to effortlessly complement her featured guests, an ability that shines bright on this new single. The rising producer has also just unveiled her brand new video for the song, directed, produced, filmed and edited by Savvas Christou, while starring herself and numerous actors in an immersive and chaotic story. 

As St. Mary explains about the song and the music video: 

“‘FIRE TO THE BLOCK’ is all about that abrupt moment of emotional outburst – a time when all the disappointment you felt and overlook you got from people has climaxed and then finally set free, hence the bittersweet undertone throughout the song. Producing this track felt like that outburst to me and I really wanted to convey that feeling to my listeners which is how the ‘bigger-than-life’ instrumental breaks came in.” 

“We filmed the music video for it while I was still working on the song which ended up playing a huge role in how they both developed. I approached them as one major project and so every creative decision I took on the video would then affect my production on the song and vice versa. The first and last scene of the music video shows a time bomb tied onto me which turns the feeling like you are about to explode into something literal and represents that emotional state. The video ends with a scene showing the bomb having one second to explode letting the viewer decide whether it goes off or not – sometimes we decide at the last minute to hold everything in instead. The blow-up only exists in our imagination and then the story just repeats itself.”

I was lost, scared, confused, and angry – This EP is me growing from those emotions and accepting my flaws. This EP encapsulates my new sound as MICA, it’s very different from any of my older music, yet still feels connected. I’ve put my blood, sweat, and tears into this project – This project is essentially my musical therapy session. Each song is a stage of my depression and how I dealt with it.”

Future Trap | JWILLI Drops Fascinating Punk-Infused Dance Single ‘Recover’

Posted by on May 4, 2021

JWILLI is a rising DJ/producer with lots of ambition and plenty of audio energy to share with the world. “Recover,” is the next step in the pathology he’s committed himself to, hammering in melodic parts, hard-hitting moments, and blending in plenty of small details all around which breathe technically-incorporated aspects into the track. Honing in a 150BPM feel into this one, “Recover,” has a giddy and quick pace feel to it that makes it easy to label as a track that’s a win. This is far from JWILLI’s first track and a listen to his streaming channels showcases healthy development and a zeroing-in of his sound that’s very much his own. This single shares a slight punk distinguishing factor in the guitar work, channels charming melody in the synth work, and scores a heavy-nature through the bass design and drum angle.

Real name John Williams, the Chicago-rising artist clearly cares about what he does. Having a certain perseverance that can be felt through the music and brand, longevity is something innately attractive in the fan-to-artist experience. John Williams, aka, JWILLI, definitely embodies this and it plays to his advantage.

Check out “Recover,” from this up and comer and give him a follow, more goodies of this caliber and more are certainly set to come from this guy.

Future Trap | Able Grey’s ‘Fall Into The Night’ An Emotional Melodic Bass Track With A Twist

Posted by on March 31, 2021

“Fall Into The Night,” by Able Grey keeps the streak of melodic bass we have heard from this guy going strong. The single kicks off right with a center-piece vocal that sets the stage of the epic melodic bass aspect soon to come.

By mid-way through, fast-paced percussion and an alluring build come to a head, thus exploding with spirit and adventure as the drop takes over from there. The energy level drops and small moment of silence acts as a mesmerizing highlight, juxtaposing the heated moments just before. These attributes reset and come through again to deliver a second drop, the aspects not feeling repetitious in nature, but fitting and give the experience a complete feel.

Based out of Chicago, Able Grey distinctively and pretty-obviously has no issue completing tracks or getting others to take a shot on his STEMS, a major plus in terms of gaining fans and staying relevant in the digital era. Alongside this, Able Grey has be able to gain the attention of massive supporters including KSHMR, Nicky Romero, Showtek, Klingande, Disco Fries, and many others.

Diverse and quite capable, Able Grey is one to keep an eye on.
