Soda State- Portal EP
Following on from their first releases ‘The Look’, ‘Midnight’, and ‘Way To Go’, they now release the final singles to complete their debut E.P. package with ‘Gold’ and E.P. title track ‘Portal’.
‘Gold’ provides a refreshing dose of their now-signature sound; 80s synth stabs, big retro drums, and contemporary pop vocals, layered with irresistible basslines and blissful melodies. E.P signature track ‘Portal’ is an instrumental, with darker tones, atmospheric, delivering big synth lines and packed with their signature retro style, a release that would not sound out of place on the 80s TV series Stranger Things.

Aspyer – Too Close To Heaven
One of Tomorrowland’s most promising artists of 2021, Aspyer is switching it up on his new single ‘Too Close To Heaven’. Where his latest tracks represented that club/festival feeling, this time he wanted to create something bright and positive with a light vibe. While being sick with COVID he found the strength to sit down with his guitar and come up with something fresh, which is how the guitar part ended up in the track. Despite not feeling well, he started to create a bright track and with him feeling better every day he also found the motivation to continue working on the track since it gave him positive energy. Amanda Collins’s voice fully conveys the mood and sets the desired vibe.
Aspyer: ‘’I hope that the track makes a lot of people smile, since it’s really necessary for all of us during these times’’.
LOOPERS feat. IYONA – No Lover
LOOPERS has been firing one track after the other since the beginning of the year, and this time he’s teaming up with IYONA again on ‘No Lover’.
LOOPERS: ‘’I hope you guys like all the new music I’ve been putting out this year. I have spent a lot of time finding the right artist and creating the art that parts with the music I’ve been releasing in the visual aspect. The process of making the audio has been as important as finding the right visual. Seeing you guys appreciate the art gives me a feeling of fulfillment and is very rewarding. Thank you.’’
SWACQ – Pursuit
Known for his unique style and always delivering something fresh, SWACQ let movie soundtracks inspire his latest offer ‘Pursuit’.

When they finally meet in the end they fall in love and feel extremely happy.
