Albums | WEIRDO Gets Real via “FAKIN'”

Posted by on July 13, 2020

This recently released dark pop single “FAKIN'” by WEIRDO is a catchy, ironic, simple yet rather cut-deep track that eludes prowess and sincerity throughout. The moody jam is the highlight track of my week without a doubt. With early support on prior releases from the lieks of BBC Radio 1, Amazing Radio, a slot in Spotify’s Fresh Finds: Pop playlist, and press sites such as Vice, Complex, EARMILK and others, WEIRDO is off to a strong start. Check out a quote on the single below and stream the new tune above now! “Fakin’ is a song I wrote about the world we live in, the people that surround us and the complexities of the modern age. I spent way too much time with and around materialistic people who were in denial of it and once I spent some time alone in thinking mode, I realised that honesty seems a thing of the past for many people nowadays…”

Albums | Sam Doll Reflects on her inner turmoils with “Bad Like Me”

Posted by on May 15, 2020

Sam Doll is a Toronto based artist with a knack for songwriting and melodies. This time around in her latest offering “Bad Like Me” Sam creates her own audio world and divulges her inner turmoils. We are astounded by her range and dynamics which really give the whole record a lot of uniqueness. More on the song via Sam Doll: “I’m a writer, and I realized that writing is what I’m best at and meant to do, but often times you write alone. And I like having a lot of people around all the time. So with music, I get to write something, and then bring it to my producer, go to the studio, do a show, etc – it’s much more social.”

DO SOMETHING

RnB | Get To Know Soulful Singer/Songwriter Marie Lang with smooth new single “Comfort Zone”

Posted by on October 8, 2019

Hailing from Vienna, Austria, Marie Lang discovered her love for music at an early age, which led her to relocate to Boston in 2012 to attend Berklee College of Music. Going through adolescence in the early 2000s, it is no surprise that the artist’s melodies pay subtle tribute to her childhood idols Destiny’s Child and Lauryn Hill. Her new single is an ode to these influences as well as navigating adult relationships. “Comfort Zone” Lang shares, “whether it’s about the wrong timing or feeling like something is missing. Which I feel can be a common feeling after college, at least for me because it’s been such a transformative time where I sometimes haven’t really figured out what I want out of something,” when speaking about her relationships which have inspired the single and the entire EP. This one is a must-listen!

Chill, Interviews | Trove Shares About Tastes, Dreams, And The Year So Far[Exclusive]

Posted by on June 20, 2019

Trove has experience some riveting moments in his young career, with over 20 million streams to his name already and a heavy reputation in the songwriting community as a guy who’s got “It.” Singles like “Revelry” and “GTFO” put Trove’s color’s on full display for all to judge. Needless to say, his sound and collaboration partners always impress as the soloist continues to add new fans to his base.

Trove took the time out to chat with us about life, end of the year, and much more. Check out the interview in full below:

What EDM music school stands out to you the most?

Trove: I have some friends that have attended Icon Collective in LA and have spoken really highly of the education and training there

For young producers out there, when would you say is the right time to quit the day job?

Trove:I tend to jump the gun on this kind of thing. It definitely wasn’t the right time for me but it drove me to really try and make it work. I would recommend honing your sound and skill until you feel like the music you’re making is creating enough opportunity to keep you busy and learning throughout the week. Save up some money in the bank so you’re a little supported and go hard full time to make it work.

Who would be your dream collaborator?

Trove:Would love to work with Rufus Du Sol or Flume.

How do you do get the creative process flowing?

Trove:Usually I’ll scroll through sample packs or presets until I find something that pricks my ear and then I’ll play some chords I like. Once I have something I can built off, I completely change and tweak the sound so it sounds unique to me. Lyrically, I’m always scribbling notes and often times they’re terrible ideas but sometimes you get a good one to build off of too.

What music platforms or general music apps do you find most relevant right now?

Trove:Spotify and Apple Music I think are at the forefront while platforms like YouTube music and TikTok are on the come up. Being able to see your stats and influence throughout different regions as an artist is a big win!

What are you most excited about this year?

Trove:All the traveling I’ve done and continue to do! I’ve visited 7 countries this year already and will be doing 3-4 more this year for songwriting.

Pop | Alxxa Teams Up With Gazzo For “Umbrella” Cover

Posted by on September 18, 2017

We had a chance to meet Alxxa over the weekend in Los Angeles and she’s the real deal. Her brand new take on Rihanna & Jay-Z’s “Umbrella” has us instantly hooked. Of the Gazzo produced cover she said:

“’Umbrella’ is such a badass song, and Gazzo and I knew we could do something different with it. That’s always the test of a good song, whether it’s stripped down, produced out, thrown into different genres, does it still work? Rihanna definitely got it right with this one and we had a good time putting our own spin to it.”

Keep your eye on Alxxa. She’s on the rise.
