Electronic-pop artist Bearoid shares his daring new single “Enemy”, sporting a playful synth melody and catchy vocals. Using strong, layered synths, Bearoid creates a track that is equal parts groovy and meaningful. Samples of arcade-game synths fill the song, and when the chorus hits, the strong pulsating beat shines through. Bearoid’s vocals are unique and powerful – delivering a beautiful top-line that really pieces everything together. In a world where we are more connected to technology than humans, Bearoid’s playfully taps into something deeper and more meaningful — a rarity in electronic music.

Techno fans have a special treat today. The electronic music school has released a video discussing not only the history of techno music, but also production tips discussing, in detail, elements of education for the Ableton user. James Wiltshire, who has been featured talking about historical and production points with Point Blank before, uses his charming UK voice and impressive intellect to deliver a balance of history and knowledge.
Dope facts you probably didn’t know if you got into dance music this decade: Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson began to create what is now known as early Detroit Techno. Early tech-heads were influenced by the book Third Wave – I won’t give away any more interesting facts – but the video is worth the watch.

In a time where every aspiring producer breaks out with their unofficial remixes of bigger artists, it’s kind of surprising that a vocalist hasn’t really done that in electronic music. Enter the enigmatic Wilsonn. Known for co-writing Attlas’s breakout record ‘Kayla,’ Wilsonn borrows SteLouse’s Periscope, and turns it into a vocal masterpiece that’s begging to be an official release. Pay attention.

RYDEN previously released her single “Dear God” a few weeks back, a single that had a deep message than most electronic music songs. This time she takes it a step further with ‘Ready”. A single completely created by her from start to finish. The actual sound of her voice is good in itself, making the lyrics easily insert itself into your brain. “Ready” is raw, gritty, tough, and gets more intense as the single progresses.
The orchestral aspects of the single are probably my favorite part, next to the drop, adding a nice little atmospheric that makes tune feel important.
RYDEN received a ton of support on his last single, “Ready” is set to go just as big if not bigger, stay tuned.

Fox Stevenson is one artist with phenomenal longevity. The dude has been promoting his music since around 2012, which is basically ancient history in electronic music years. He’s been on huge labels including Firepower Records, Disciple Records, Spinnin’ Records, and more. He decided again to go with Disciple Records with this one -a fitting choice given the sound.
“Rocket” by Fox Stevenson not only features sick dirty guitar riffs, but throws down with huge, sick basslines that are both melodic and heavy. Fox Stevenson always puts out gold, “Rocket” is another notch in the belt. An original masterpiece.
