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”.

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.

Trap | Sean Turk Takes On Stalking Gia’s “Second Nature”

Posted by on October 2, 2016

Coming off his debut major label release, Sean Turk delivers a late night sensual bass record. This particular style has naturally become a signature for him and he is calling it, “Bedroom Bass.” Stalking Gia’s single “Second Nature” caught his attention and he knew it would make for the perfect remix. Their team signed off on it immediately and we are excited to share this one with FreshNewTracks.com.

New York producer and multi-instrumentalist Sean Turk has managed to impress Sebastian Ingrosso and his team, sign a record to Warner Music Group, air on the radio 4 times (one of those being the largest radio station in New Zealand), rack up several million plays online, and break the Hypem top 10 with all 5 releases. Really solid.

Pop | Calypso’s debut single “Numbered” leaves us hungry for more

Posted by on May 11, 2016

‘Numbered’ is the first taste of Calypso’s debut four-track EP, and if this is anything to go by, we are certainly in for a treat. The Tasmanian artist’s beautiful voice perfectly compliments the piano/guitar based melody to create a track that is melodic, uplifting, yet also upbeat. From the artist herself: “The story behind ‘Numbered’ is quite obvious through the lyrics in the song; it’s about the struggle between two people as their love for each other is coming to an end – the painful experience of wanting to keep somebody close, but knowing that you will eventually have to let go.” This story is beautifully told throughout the track, with the closing sax line being the cherry on top. Check out “Numbered” now and be sure to follow Calypso as we’re sure she has some magic coming our way soon.
