Alternative | RUBBER connect with NIC HANSON’ via “REASON THAT YOU CAME HERE”

Posted by on June 3, 2021

Philadelphia’s Rubber have been causing quite the stir in the industry lately, and their latest offering ‘Reason
That You Came Here’ is a track that is too good to ignore. Taking a trip into psychedelica, the funky duo adopt warped synths and electro-pop rhythms that play as a sultry backdrop for the alluring narrative. Sewing sound samples into the lyricism, they use peppered percussion to build up to a killer chorus that is shimmering with gorgeous falsetto harmonies, with a charming attitude akin to that of Anderson.Paak. Complimenting each other in their varying musical tastes, singer Andrew Loper and multi-instrumentalist/producer John Della Franco have struck gold with the track, which features a groove-laden verse from fellow Philadelphian Nic Hanson . “Reason That You Came Here is all about confidence and not giving a flying fuck” Rubber explains,

It’s about anticipating that feeling of being in a room and having all the eyes on you, being the center of attention, and owning it. Being cooped up this past year has been an intense and tiring experience. For us and many other artists, the return of shows has been the one light at the end of this tunnel that we are desperate to catch a glimpse of. We just booked our first hometown show for June 10th at Sunflower Philly so that light is well within reach now. This song is the perfect capstone to this era of our career, live music is popping up again after this long pandemic winter, andwe will once again be the reason that you came here, to the show, for a night of connective, energetic, eclectic music”.

Indie, Pop | Ci Majr is back with her latest scintillating, indie-pop anthem, “Guillotine”

Posted by on March 8, 2021

Atlanta up and comer Ci Majr returns on the scene with her unmissable new single, “Guillotine”, taken off her forthcoming EP Side Effects, set for release next month on April 16th. The indie pop jam once again highlights her songwriting abilities. Listen to the single above now and read a quote from Ci major on the new track above now!

“I actually woke up in the middle of the night one day in May 2020 with one word on my mind: “guillotine”. It’s a little dark but as soon as I woke up I was thinking how it could be such a cool concept for a song! I spent the next week or so fleshing out the lyrics and creating the demo production. The original version was actually a lot more moody and mellow than this really bright and more upbeat version that was created with my friend, Féz, over in the UK. He absolutely crushed the production and honestly transformed it into a hit!” – Ci Majr

Alternative, RnB | Shraban – Shoot (Prod. by Shraban)

Posted by on June 12, 2017

I got this promo sent recently, and I love it! Here is what the artists had to say, which is way better than what I had besides this tune being a smash:

Shraban releases his first song in over two months and it shows off all the work he’s been putting in. This new release ‘Shoot’ talks of some of the wildest times in his life, and carries the late night vibes prominent in the industry as of late. With chilling vocals and ambient vibes, the song has it all. Self produced by Shraban, his upcoming tape ‘Trap N B’ will be releasing soon as well.

Make sure you keep your eyes out for this newcomer!

House | You Need To Hear Anna Lunoe’s New “Radioactive” Single

Posted by on September 15, 2016

Last year, I paid a visit to Kingdom in Austin, TX. Anna Lunoe was headlining her Hyper House tour, and I discovered her music a week before via DJ Mag’s live stream of her tasteful set at CRSSD in San Diego. Although I suspected it was another carefully crafted female DJ gimmick cash grab, I thought I’d give the show a shot. I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, I was blown away. The mixing that night was on point, and every song translated in the storied Austin venue that night. I left with my ears (partially blown out) and a new appreciation for Anna Lunoe’s DJ acumen and her music.

Ever since, I’ve kept an eye out for the Australian DJ, vocalist, songwriter and producer, peeping her sets on 1001Tracklists.com leading up to the release of her brand new “Radioactive” single that’s nothing short of a massive tune. She’s been teasing it for months and it’s finally here courtesy of OWSLA. It’s already getting love from the likes of Major Lazer, TroyBoi, and Zane Lowe. Well deserved, as we’ll have this tune on repeat all weekend long.

Grab the single on iTunes here.

Anna Lunoe is the real deal.
