Los Angeles, United States

Gabriel Munoz is back with a bang! 'Don't Want Me' is a moody club track detailing the aftermath of rejection incorporated into a dance track that will definitely get you moving. It's fun in structure but somber in lyrics. Gabriel let us know that he "wrote this after a guy told me he didn't like me back, and it was therapeutic and empowering as hell. Hope you relate (and dance)!" and you know what? We felt it in both its pain and through dance. We love artists who incorporate their pain into art and this track has definitely done so. Be sure to stream it using the link below!




 

NUMBER 2

Atlanta Georgia, United States

American pop artist, musician and international model who appeared on American Idol Season 17 - Katie Belle is back with a brand new track! Opening with a staccato synth and emotive strings this track really conjured up my inner bad bitch (Some may say my inner psycho). This track has multiple credits including producer Josquin Des Pres, Songwriters - Josquin Des Pres, Craig Erwin, Jean Castel, Haley Morrissey. Aside from that, 2022 will find Belle focused on finishing up tracks written throughout the last year. Katie, an avid songwriter along with her producer Josquin Des Pres (Jason Mraz, Bernie Taupin, Gipsy Kings et.al.) and Utonium Songwriting Team ( Jason Mraz ) are cooking up some heat for our eardrums this year so keep an eye out! We LOVE everything about this product and if you want to channel your inner bad bitch sass queen then go add it to your playlist




 

NUMBER 3

BTAV - Time For U 2 Go

Baltimore, Maryland, United States


BTAV is back with his release 'Time For U 2 Go'. It's an absolute house anthem resembling likeness to some of the old Chainsmokers songs, but more on the side of house. BTAV told us that his "goal is to have the vibe or melody stuck in your head and wanting to hear more." and we definitely felt that. He will be releasing a new single every month, so stay tuned! We've had a listen to some of his previous releases and we love the vibe. BTAV, Keep making great music! Add you lot, add this to your house playlists for a pop-inspired house anthem just in time for the summer!

Immediately opening with high energy and an almost a reggaeton beat we're swiftly taken into our dreams of the summer! This track wouldn't be perfect on our holiday playlists (definitely listening to this in my build-up to my trip to Cuba this year). So, who is Lino Cericola? He is an solo electronic pop singer-songwriter who takes musical influence from his roots. Growing up in Battisti and Vasco, he told us that he tries to bring it into his music. More specifically stating that he brings the

"modern with the determination of Vasco, combined with the sweetness of Battisti". The track was made in Turin in the recording studio of his "trusted arranger Macs". Definitely one for your pre-holiday playlists!



 

NUMBER 6

Tazmin - Regret You

Worcester, United Kingdom


Tazmin has released her latest project 'Regret You' which is a collaboration between singer-songwriter Tazmin and dance music producer 5parks. The two paired up through a BBC collaboration generator and were consequently challenged to make a BBC Radio-ready track in one week, online, having never met before. To create this track within one week has got to be commended, so well done from us! The narrative is regret (as said on the tin) and highlights the difficulties of certain relationships. This message is portrayed along with an EDM bassline featuring several enticing tempo changes. Summer playlist? Stick this on repeat.

NUMBER 8

Emeye - Da Da (Hi There!)

London, United Kingdom


Emeye is back with their new release titled ‘Da Da (Hi There!)’. This is a catchy Tech House track, showing Emeye’s capability of layering sounds to create a banger for clubbing! This track opens with deep techno energy, the ultimate club track. I can hear this becoming a club anthem in Ayai Napa and Ibiza, definitely one for your weekend playlists if you're getting ready to go on a dirty night out! Full of repetitive vocal chops we get to know the feel of the track quite quickly. When asked, we were told that “It’s the carefreeness of a child living in a world full of duties. It’s the youth innocence translated in music” Want you want to free yourself from the stresses of a hard week at work with minimal vocals and full flavor techno, this is the track for you!

Showcasing the feeling of love at first sight: the lyrics explore the feeling of yearning and desire when you see someone who you immediately fall for.
