Chill | Isaiah Brown Releases Chilling Anthem, ‘Me & U’

Posted by on March 16, 2023

In November of last year, versatile artist Isaiah Brown dropped his debut album, DREAMERBOY. The compilation received widespread attention across the electronic, pop, and hip-hop communities, due to the fact that it fused a variety of genres together into an invigorating auditory adventure. Arguably one of the top tracks on the LP is the gripping single, “Me & U”.

Sharing the process and inspiration behind the anthem, Isaiah says, “despite all of the hardships and obstacles life can bring, the best thing we can do is continue to push for our dreams. This song has been in the works and on the back burner for so long, it reminds me how strong our determination can be and no matter what we will always find a way to rise above.” During “Me & U”, Isaiah’s intense vocals and unique sound design convey this message while putting listeners in a melodic trance. Now, Isaiah is bringing “Me & U” to life visually with his new music video for it.

The music video optimally captures the essence of the song through its powerful imagery and storytelling abilities. Combining the song itself and short film for “Me & U”, this thrilling project is simply a preview of Isaiah’s plans for the future. Between his project that is in the works and exciting tour dates in the coming months, 2023 is shaping up to be a huge year for Isaiah.

Albums | Mysterious producer Modapit unveils “Falling In Love,” the second single off the artist’s forthcoming debut LP

Posted by on March 13, 2023

Newly-minted producer Modapit is a project of contradictions. The enigmatic artist has emerged from the shadows of underground dance music, boasting a gothic, edgy streetwear look that contrasts their euphoric, swirling pop-electronic sounds. They project individualized emotion and meaning in their art, while remaining shrouded in anonymity underneath their signature fishnet veil. And they stay silent behind the highly expressive sounds of their music, which leads to fervent discourse and chatter from within their ever-growing Internet community.

The art speaks for itself, and by removing the ‘ego’ of the artist, fans fully immerse themselves into Modapit’s disparate, fashion-forward multiverse. 

Modapit is revving up towards their debut album, a full-length project that promises to further spotlight the producer’s uplifting, goth-techno aura. The music is complemented by a stark-visual aesthetic developed by filmmakers David Borges and Carlos Perez. All together, they’ve crafted a funeral-rave vibe – a defining artistic ethos representing Modapit’s out-of-the-box approach and propensity for creating unlikely pairs.
Listeners got their first taste of the forthcoming LP with lead single “Dancing,” a jubilant yet brooding track that translates the emotion of The Weeknd’s latest album, Dawn FM, into a dance-fueled rave experience. “Dancing” released alongside a stunning music video directed by Borges with cinematography from Perez. The second part of a four-part short film, the “Dancing” music video follows a woman navigating her way through a troubling past trauma, finding reprieve and catharsis after an encounter with a group of dancers. The video concludes with Modapit standing mysteriously behind our main character, leaving questions about their unfolding relationship. 

Last week, Modapit unveiled “Falling In Love,” a continuation of the producer’s ongoing thematic and narrative journey. Releasing alongside the story’s third video, this new chapter sees the same unnamed character (played by Gabriela Garcia) with a changed demeanor; while once fragile and burdened by her past, she is now confident and fierce. 

The video begins with our main character riding her motorcycle down a desert highway, the camera eloquently capturing the wide scenic vistas around her. She then comes across a group of mystics dancing to choreography designed by Tiffany De Alba, with the ritualistic movements once again summoning the Modapit entity. After providing a piece of the Modapit garment to the mystics, she then gets absorbed into the mysterious object above, traveling towards the final step in her emotional and psychological transformation.  
The music of “Falling In Love” complements the video by evoking similarly overwhelming yet triumphant feelings – a consistent emotional tightrope of the Modapit project. Contrasting dark, heavy techno chords and droning basslines with uplifting melodies and lyrics, “Falling In Love” presents a sonic arc that reflects the difficult yet rewarding process of unleashing vulnerability – a maturation that allows you to love yourself and those around you. 

Falling In Love” kicks off with an ascending, ethereal atmosphere that underlies the song’s angelic central vocals. The song then builds before dropping into the thumping, pop-electronic bombast characteristic of Modapit’s sound. Filling out the rest of its composition with lush, nostalgic piano chords that transition into a second drop filled with blazing, extra-terrestrial synth lines, “Falling In Love” is simultaneously emotional, immersive, and pulsating with motion. 

Buried under a hood of secrecy, Modapit is a metaphor as much as it is a musical project: their blank face reflects back at you the person you want to be, while providing the steps to get there through the power of dance.

Albums | Tobtok returns to Perfect Havoc with the mammoth sounding ‘Dreamer’ feat. betty bloom

Posted by on March 11, 2023

Swedish sensation Tobtok delivers his second release of the year with the anthemic ‘Dreamer’
featuring vocals from the in-demand Betty Bloom who delivers a luxurious and dreamy performance
mixed with Tobtok’s powerful production. Having generated over 700 million streams globally and with
a double platinum hit under his belt in Australia with ‘Fast Car’, plus consistent international radio
support, Tobtok continues to evolve showing depths of creativity in this latest release.

Tobtok aka Tobias Karlsson (1million Spotify listeners), remains one of the most talented artists leading
the new wave of Swedish electronic music DJ / producers. His original work, remixes and productions
for Joel Corry, Robin Schulz and Karen Harding to name a few, have been signed to such illustrious
labels as Ministry of Sound, Kitsuné and of course, his home at Perfect Havoc.

Tobtok’s highlight outings include flexing his DJ skills on Toolroom Records’ ‘Miami Poolside’
compilation and the 2020 release ‘New Levels’ which as well as being made ‘Tune of the Week’ on BBC
Radio 1, picked up key DJ support from Sam Feldt, Sigala, Tiësto and many more. Over the past year, his sound has evolved to showcase a more complex, dance floor-ready side to his production which seems to be doing the trick with signings to credible labels such as Selected and Soave.

‘Dreamer’ is the perfect example of the evolving Tobtok sound. The track starts with an ethereal build,
wrapped in Bloom’s vocals with stabbing synths that kick on into a pumping house tune. Fitting of a
deep house set, a progressive house opener, or for big room and festival style stages, this versatile track will no doubt make it into the boxes of a diverse selection of tastemaker DJs.

Joining Tobtok on ‘Dreamer’ is the Glasgow-based vocal powerhouse, Betty Bloom. Bloom’s writing,
creativity, and gorgeous ethereal vocals saw her debut dance release come in collaboration with trance
mainstay, Ummet Ozcan. Since then, the newcomer’s single ‘Satisfy Me’ with Alex Hobson, featured on
the Love Island UK Finale in 2022 and further props came with airplay on Kiss FM. With releases with
Conor Ross and Tom Ferry still to come, Betty Bloom is one to watch.

‘Dreamer’ is yet another creative move for Perfect Havoc, co-founded by Robert Davies and Adam
Griffin in 2016. Shortlisted for Best Independent Record Label at the 2022 Music Week Awards, Perfect
Havoc’s niche of commercial dance with a smattering of the more club-focused sounds has given rise to six UK Top 20 singles including ‘Fake Friends’ by PS1 feat. Alex Hosking, and the No.1 single ‘Head &
Heart’ by Joel Corry & MNEK.

Now having generated over 10 billion streams, the London-based Perfect Havoc is one of the most
consistently successful indies in recent years. Keep an ear out for more releases in 2023 with cuts also
from CHANEY, Freejak, Ben Pearce, Varski and much more lined up.
