Suchii - Pit a Pat
Salt Lake City, United States
Suchii sent across their debut track this week. This Post-Disco/Pop Track titled 'Pit a Pat' captures that feeling of ambivalence that we sometimes have around hating your ex but remembering all the good times. Opening with a funky bass and lead guitar we're set up for an absolute smash hit. As the verse starts we hear the stregnth of the bass alongside all sorts of talent in vocal performance. This is a really catchy track with catchy lyrics. Suchii's main specialisms lie in Pop, R&B, and Post-Disco. We can't wait to see where this artist goes! Get it on your dance playlists!

DJ G-String - In the Mirror
Chicago, United States
DJ G-String's first EP called In the Mirror is a catalog of her top releases since 2020 but in trance form. She has always loved trance music and wanted to give her songs a flavor of that style. She is usually a vocal house producer but felt that the lyrics and emotions of her tracks could fit well within the trance world. If you're a fan of heavy nights out this is the ULTIMATE set of tracks to get you started. I would suggest that the artist tries sending this project to as many club DJs as you can globally, it would do really well! I caught up with DJ G- String to find out more about this project in an interview which can be found on our feature page. Make sure you check it out!
Caxiel - Out Of Time
Caxiel, an artist based in Lima, Peru has sent us his latest release entitled 'Out Of Time' to review this week. Caxiel is a musician/singer/Producer that studied his craft at Berklee college of music. As well as this he is a dancer who studied over at 1million dance studio in south Korea. Out Of Time by Caxiel is the ultimate 80s inspired pop track that is FULL of heavy electronic synths and bass. Caxiel has a unique vocal style, I would say that it's reminiscent of funk and 80s pop mixed with soul. It's really refreshing to hear something different and unique. If you're a fan of 80s pop then this is your anthem for sure! It reminds me of the songs that you hear on mainstream radio when out on a late night drive in the early hours of the morning.
