Chill | Egzod, Sinego, & Adara Team Up, Forming Spiritual Chill House Journey “Free”

Posted by on October 12, 2016

Adara is a name that rings a bell, but Egzod and Sinego are two artists relatively new to the scene – now clearly making their mark. The trio of talent have teamed up with Miami Beats, a label who has worked with The Him, Steve Void, and is responsible for millions of plays being delivered to the releases they’ve handled. This time, the release is “Free”, a chill house / deep house hybrid that features tribal, cinematic, and spiritual elements within. Adara’s vocals take the experience to an unique and unforgettable realm, complimenting the theme of the tune with silky smooth excellence.

Adara has worked with artists such as Mitis, Kicks N Licks, K Theory and more, Egzod reached #1 on HypeM with his previous release, and Sinego has a chill-pop vibe that I haven’t quite heard from other up-and-coming artists. “Free” is an awesome fit all-around.

House | Brick’s “Off The Rack” Tells A House Story Worth Sharing

Posted by on August 29, 2016

I’m not sure if its the low pitched vocals, the in your face basslines, or the squirmy vibrato laced topline, but “Off The Rack” by Bricks is a catchy house track that’s fuses Miami and LA vibes into its own thing.

The Icon Collective graduate with a focus on house music, based in LA, is making his mark with “Off The Rack”. He’s recently partnered with a couple large companies in the music industry, so be on the lookout bigger things. Also, he’s dropping a label release soon as well too. 3rd times a charm – can’t wait to hear what’s next, the last two give a clear picture of what’s to come.

Alternative, Ambient | Manatee Commune is about to take off!

Posted by on June 21, 2016

I heard this tune and literally could not stop listening, it has the most infectious vocals and the production is absolutely amazing. Bastard Jazz Recordings is probably one of the coolest labels out on the east coast, and has some of the coolest artists / vibes out there. After listening to this tune, I think they may break out as a bigger and more well known label in the mainstream for sure. Also, Manatee Commune is an awesome band to begin with, I can’t wait for their album now! Check them out and make sure to peep another favorite of mine: Manatee Commune – Clay feat. Marina Price

3LAU is well known for all his work off the stage, but now, the young Las Vegas producer and DJ has taken his philanthropic work to a whole new level. On April 8th, 3LAU officially launched ‘blume’, the first not-for-profit dance music label with a mission to unite dance music listeners world-wide around philanthropic causes. With the start of a label, 3LAU gives us his brand new track, “Is It Love” featuring the lovely vocals of Yeah Boy. While different from what we’ve heard from 3LAU, it still contains the emotional aspect we’ve found in all of his music. This track is a must listen and must download, especially with all earned sales and streams of the record being donated to Pencils of Promise, an education-based nonprofit that funds school construction in the developing world. We salute you, Justin Blau. Thank you for making a difference.
