February 4th Weekly Roundup Feature

Happy February 4th everyone! Hope everyone is staying warm out there. I heard it snowed all over the country, even in places like Albuquerque, which never get snow! Surprisingly, it didn’t snow where I’m at which is odd because we always get tons of snow and there wasn’t much this year. Anyway, here’s our weekly roundup feature. Check out the hottest tracks and keep it tuned into The Festival Voice!

Kavinsky- Zenith

Kavinsky is sharing his new single, “Zenith.” Greatly inspired by cinema, the acclaimed French producer envisioned “Zenith” as the sequel to his breakthrough hit, “Nightcall.” Muted and futuristic, the new song reveals Kavinsky’s romantic side. Like “Nightcall,” it’s a duet between man and a woman. Yet with “Zenith,” he flips the script, featuring the female character, Prudence (formerly of the duo The Dø), on the verses while Morgan Phalen (who sang with Justice and is the vocalist of Diamond Nights) takes the choruses, playing the male lead. A soulful, sensuous saxophone adds a distinctive third voice as the song plays out.

Riot Ten & BERNZIKIAL team up on the energy-bending single “GAWT DAT,” layering aggressive vocal chops with their infectious experimental bass.

The drop evolves with each count into a rhythmic breakdown of electrifying instrumentals. Then, you have just a brief moment to collect yourself and prepare for what’s next.

Jax Jones- Where Did You Go?

GRAMMY® and BRIT-nominated producer/DJ/multi-instrumentalist Jax Jones reunites with GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter MNEK on the euphoric banger “Where Did You Go?” Paying tribute to the iconic genre Eurodance – which originated in the late 1980s and reflected a collective desire to have fun, party and be happy after a period of strife in Europe – “Where Did You Go?” reflects a similar mood for the world in 2022, with people desperate to feel joyous again and be able to celebrate with unity + togetherness. MNEK’s emotional vocals tell a poignant tale of a search for the partner that inexplicably left him alone on the dancefloor as Jax conjures up an indelible hook that’s every bit as mesmerizing as the one that got away. MNEK featured alongside Mike Dunn on one of Jax’s earliest hits, 2016’s “House Work,” and they’ve since written numerous songs together.

Written in Mexico in March 2021, the duo was greatly inspired by the work of artists such as Stephan Bodzin and Tale of Us, but also epic film scores such as Chariots of Fire.

Swami John Reis- Do You Still Want To Make Out?

Swami Records and punk veteran Swami John Reis are excited to announce the FridayFebruary 18 digital release of Ride The Wild Night, Reis’ long-awaited debut solo album. Ride The Wild Night is neither completely similar nor dissimilar to Reis’ previous bands (Hot Snakes, Night Marchers, The Sultans, Rocket From The Crypt, Drive Like Jehu), yet the sound is immediately familiar and assuring — like an old friend you lost touch with that comes back into your life only to ask to borrow money. The music is an amalgam of Sixties folk-punk, Seventies punk-punk and pre-Vietnam War rock ’n’ roll, filtered through Reis’ unregistered, trademark sensibilities.
