Canadian DJ-producer ELPORT’s latest single “RYDA” with vocalist pablø is perfect for both the dance floor and casual listening. With the drop’s groovy house drums interacting perfectly with a powerful dance bass, even casual listeners will find it hard to stop themselves from nodding their head to the beat. Taking cues from the sounds of dancehall, ELPORT masterfully infuses organic plucks and forceful brass hits, creating the perfect mix of clubby house and catchy dancehall.
ELPORT’s already impressive instrumental production is enhanced by pablø’s smooth and radio-friendly vocals. “I’ll be your ‘RYDA,’ won’t you ride with me?” he asks, repeating the same phrase in each blissful chorus, and ringing in listener’s ears after. With “RYDA,” Toronto-based ELPORT shows that he deserves a spot as one of Canada’s largest DJ-producers.
Chill electronic label Czech Vibes Sound has
dropped its first official release, “Kinstugi” by Good Lee and Jade
Alice. The emotional, yet empowering song features Good Lee’s signature organic sounds, similar to
those commonly used by artists like ODESZA. Lyrically, Jade Alice’s vocals explore the theme of damage and
recovery. The title, “Kinstugi,” reflects this theme
well; it refers to the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics, creating new
works of art from “damaged” pieces.
According to Jade Alice, she was immediately inspired by Good Lee’s instrumental: “as soon as I heard Patrick’s track, I could feel every emotion he had put into it.” … “I really connected with this idea of healing, self-love, and forgiveness, of accepting our flaws and embracing them” Jade Alice says. The award-winning songwriting of Australian Jade Alice combined with the top-tier production of Austrian Good Lee is a recipe for success. “Kinstugi” makes this especially clear.
BAER is a multicultural Pop artist based in Los Angeles. Born in Taiwan and partially raised in Canada, BAER’s music has a style that transcends cultural and stylistic boundaries. BAER left her home in Taiwan and moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of her dreams. She began working with notable vocal producer and songwriter David “DQ” Quiñones (Beyoncé, Jason Derulo, Nicki Minaj, etc) and soon turned her bedroom into a pop hit factory, making her own songs with friends and vocal producing herself.
Teaming up with US singer / Songwriter JVZEL, the two have comfortably combined their two styles to create a soothing latino hip – hop release. JVZEL is proceeding quietly under the radar, as she continues to keep it interesting by creating art centred around self love & freedom, the two things that have propelled her this far. You can stream SALINA below.
“Salina” is a loose spanish slang word we created to mean ‘salty’ (the exact definition is a ‘big salt lake’). We wrote this song as an ode to our awesomeness, and how being confident in who you are will inevitably come with haters who are super ‘salina’! It’s a fun summer empowerment record. We filmed a music video where we enlisted a few other amazing empowered women, which will be released alongside the song.
32Stitiches’ latest booming future bass production comes in the form of a remix
for Los-Vegas based Lucchii’s single “Chosen Ones.” In a complete 180 from the original
track’s industrial, hard trap sound, 32Stitches chooses to showcase the vocals
with an open, pop centered production. The verses are kept relatively minimal,
supporting the radio-friendly topline by Canadian singer “DAD.” The track
builds to a euphoric peak in the drop, which features groovy drums and pulsing
With the creativity shown in his “Chosen Ones” remix, it should come as no surprise that 32Stitches has over a million streams to his name, with tracks like “Are We There Yet” and “Olympus” earning him fans from around the world and with many of his tracks released with heavy-hitter labels like Sony, UMG and NCS. Additionally, he’s had the opportunity to tour the world as a DJ, performing his tracks live alongside superstars like San Holo and DROELOE. Part of a 4-track remix pack released by Music High Court, in this particular remix, 32Stitches shows us that he’s constantly changing and improving his own style with new creative productions.
With massive retro synthesizers and gorgeous
layers of vocal harmonies, Seersha’s latest single “Lecture Me” is the sonic
embodiment of freedom. It should come as no surprise then, that her name,
Seersha, or Saoirse, means “freedom” in Irish.
The track itself takes on a bitter-sweet tone.
The 80’s influenced synth-pop sounds she uses gives listeners a relaxed, laid-back
feeling, but Seersha’s soaring vocals tell a different story: “Is this what
you wan’t, to crush my spirit?” Seersha sings. It’s this slight
incongruence between instrumental and vocal that makes “Lecture Me” truly
stand out from the crowd.
Just a few years ago, in 2016, Seersha was
living in Nashville writing country songs for other artists. After deciding it
was no longer for her, however, she made the daring move out of Music City and
back home to Atlanta, where she wrote her first EP in just 3 weeks.
The EP quickly earned praise from some of the
industry’s leading curators like Wonky Sensitive and yvynyl. But for the past
two years there’s been nothing released under the Seersha alias, until now.
With “Lecture Me,” Seersha makes her return in spectacular fashion.
Tessa Violet’s debut
EP “Bad Ideas (Act One)” is simple in the best of ways: all of the good and
none of the bad. Opening with her debut single “Crush,” which saw massive
worldwide success, Violet gives us two more unique tracks “Bas Ideas” and “I
Like (The idea of) You, both of which have a simple, lighthearted throwback
sound. Additionally, the EP gives listeners a remix version of each track,
including Le Youth’s popular remix of “Crush”, which adds a thumping dance beat
to the track’s blissful pop vocals.

catchy pop style, Chicago based Tessa Violet is sure to be making big moves in
the coming months.
Nashville-based artist Mokita is truly a triple threat: he can write beautiful songs, sing on them, and produce them, all at an incredibly high level. In his latest EP, 4201, Mokita shows us the best of his signature style, combining the classic sound of acoustic guitars with the powerful sound of modern electronic production.
Tracks like “More Than Friends” and “Til I Don’t” show Mokita’s unique ability to create radio-ready pop hits on the spot, while “I Still Do” and “Inside Out” have a clear country influence. It’s this diversity that makes “4201” special: each of the EP’s six tracks have something different to offer.
Mokita’s musical journey started at the age of six, when he picked up the piano. Since then, he’s worked hard to develop his own musical style – and he’s succeeded; but even after gaining millions of streams on his tracks, Mokita still makes the majority of them at home in his bedroom: “It’s cool to be able to create all the songs in the place you’re living; it just adds intimacy to the process of making music of his music at home in his bedroom studio.” says Mokita.

San Francisco based Invalyd and Italian Becko
have released their latest energetic collaboration “Space & Time.” The
production duo’s style is clearly influenced by the punk-rock sound that dominated
popular culture in the early 2000’s. Becko brings his signature emo-punk vocals
to the track, complimented by his and Invalyd’s modern future bass drops.
With “Space & Time,” Invalyd and Becko are
confirming what we already knew: both are extremely talented at their craft.
Invalyd’s tracks have been streamed thousands of times, as well as supported by
A-list DJs like Laidback Luke and Armin Van Buuren. And Becko’s success has

their debut single, “24 Hours.” Featuring the vocal talents of Brook Baili, the
mesmerizing duet combines sparkling Coldplay style piano verses with
Chainsmokers-esque synth beat drops. The ear-catching melodies and danceable

bands with each other from a young age, so when they finally got together to

artists. Starting off strong with “24 Hours,” Olsen Jake is definitely an act
to keep an eye on in the coming months and years.
