glue70- Sons of Time
When crafting this EP glue70 wanted to ensure that he made an entrance. The record opens with a bold saxophone riff which does just that! Leading into sparkling synths and minimal drums, the smooth vocals have a melodic bed to smoothly lay out on. The lyrics touch on the concepts of time and beauty while glue70 perfectly captures “the journey to the past” with his 80’s infused production…
Ry Hill-Staring at the Sun Video
TVBOO & Kevin Flum- X2
Hans Göran- Gang
WinWel- Sweet Dreams
The combination of lullabies, bass, kicks, and snares was a daydream before sleep master WinWel graced our ears. This EP is a homage to bedtime, a selection of music to destress the highest of blood pressures and calmly soothe you into relaxation, as you sip your hot beverage and wonder what dreams may come in slumber. Welcome to the most delicate bass EP you will likely receive, as WinWel bids you ‘Sweet Dreams’.
Muzi- Need That
Digitalz- Falling In
Julian Jordan, Teo Mandrelli, Jordan Grace- Shout
Julian Jordan has teamed up with Teo Mandrelli and Jordan Grace to remake his all time favorite 80’s track ‘Shout’. The track is an exclusive cover of the worldwide hit ‘Shout’ by Tears for Fears who also gave their sign of approval. Channeling their pure youth sentiment, all artists have reworked the 80’s classic with their own signature sounds, turning it into a true nostalgic feeling banger.
OOTORO – Breaking Away
Dubbed by Dancing Astronaut as one of the few artists maintaining house music’s novelty, OOTORO is now back with ‘Breaking Away’ — his fourth release this year following his ‘Warehouse EP’ and track ‘Just Like’. ‘Breaking Away’ finds its inspiration in the UK underground house scene, a simple but groovy track. OOTORO wanted to create a track that shares the same vibe as his earlier release ‘All I Need’.
His past link up on STMPD RCRDS with Bleu Clair on ‘Beat Like This’ was well-greeted by DJ Snake and Malaa on their Secret Room back-to-back. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if OOTORO’s ‘Breaking Away’ finds itself nestling on a flock of 2021’s best releases.
Drove & Justin Caruso – Intoxicated
After announcing their upcoming EP last week, Drove is heading into the second single of the EP; Intoxicated. As the closing track of the EP, Intoxicated represents finally reaching the destination where you’ve found the peace you were looking for. Drove had the following to say about their decision to team up with Justin Caruso on this one:
‘’We had been working on the EP and still needed a final track that completed the journey. We were already in contact with Justin and thought that he might be the perfect fit for our final track. After listening to the demo we sent him, Justin was really excited to jump on the track. Together we came to the perfect finale of the Dawn.’’
Martina Topley-Bird & Robert Del Naja- Pure Heart EP
The pair, although coming from the same music scene, have distinctively different skills and experiences to combine. With Topley Bird´s hypnotically soft tones and Del Naja´s tense, edgy and sensitive productions they come together in their interest in reflecting on life and finding serenity and peace in the dark, often hopeless places. The melancholy of Bristol seems ingrained not only in its culture but seems to seep into inhabitants of the city.
Oli Harper- It’s Hard For Me

Mikey Lion- For The Love Album
Love—it’s one of the strongest and most universal connectors in our world. It’s also the driving force behind everything Mikey Lion does, from the music he crafts to the events he runs as the leader of Desert Hearts, to the circles he keeps. To honor this all-encompassing force, the artist today releases the full rendition of For The Love, his debut studio album, and the 100th release on Desert Hearts Records. A patchwork of nine tracks depicts Lion’s saga spanning from the day he discovered his true purpose, to the highs and lows of realizing it, and up to the present where he ponders on reaching the next chapter for himself and his community.
Alan Fitzpatrick & Lawrence Hart- Warning Signs
‘Warning Signs’ is the collaborative effort of both Fitzpatrick and Lawrence Hart, the pair’s debut with the label is a twisting house menagerie with dazzling and thought-provoking sound design. The arrangement rises with groove-stricken drum programming and interweaving atmospheric details, sub-atomic bassline stabs walk hauntingly beneath the composition’s main body.
Oliver Koletzki- Made of Cashmere & Serpiente Del Ritmo
Today, Oliver Koletzki continues unveiling his upcoming album, ‘Made Of Wood,’ with another set of singles, “Made Of Cashmere” and “Serpiente Del Ritmo.” These new compositions showcase just how dynamic the longform’s concept of handcrafted electronic music is. The pack begins with a shimmering “Made Of Cashmere,” which leans toward the melodic techno Koletzki’s label Stil Vor Talent is known for with hypnotic arpeggios and complex synth layers. True to the theme, however, these elements are balanced out by orchestral pads and wooden drum patterns beneath. “Serpiente Del Ritmo,” featuring ELIH on vocal duties, offers a more organic look at ‘Made Of Wood,’ with its Spanish lyrics and thick layers of piano, percussion, and horns taking listeners straight to the jungles of Tulum that inspired it.
Jubël- 6115 Orange St. EP
Today, Swedish pop duo Jubël release their EP 6115 Orange St., an homage to the City of Angels as they continue longing for summer from their Swedish hometown. While it’s almost a 15 hour flight from Stockholm to Los Angeles, distance has only made the heart grow fonder for Jubël, who were deeply inspired by their first writing trip to the West Coast two years ago and have craved the transAtlantic move ever since. An EP drenched in feel-good vocals and celebratory messaging, 6115 Orange St. hopes to raise positivity for fans as the world slowly emerges from the effects of the global pandemic, just in time for summer.

We Will Rock You
Ready for the rock?
Teenage Sequence- All This Art
Independent Queer/trans label Get Better Records (Control Top, Evan Greer, The HIRS Collective, Lande Hekt) and London-born, British South Asian multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Teenage Sequence are excited to present “All This Art,” a track that turns a scathing eye on the small indignities and hypocrisies of a music industry that doesn’t want to face its own racial shortcomings. Clocking in at 6:29 of spoken word over a dance beat as bright, tart, and cutting as the song’s lyrics, “All This Art” disregards the rules of modern pop and alternative songwriting in favor of brutal honesty and bittersweet fun.
Joey Cape- It Could Be Real
Leading the collection from the upcoming, “A Good Year To Forget” album is “It Could Be Real,” a song written from the perspective of a disenchanted single person—a person who has experienced the highs and lows of multiple failed relationships. They have, more than once, considered the possibility that they are not fit to partner with another and have landed on complacency. Eventually, they come to believe they are actually capable of lasting connections and realize their potential to be fit enough for someone else—it’s a suspicious invitation but is intended to be light and tongue-in-cheek.
