deka – Tepid

Somali-American fashion designer and artist deka shares ‘Tepid’, a dark and twisted fantastical electronic gem produced by frankie bash and RAFA MAYA. Apart from a few (brilliant) mixes, you can only find one other song by the Minneapolis based artist, it’s the mesmerising ‘ESCAPIST’ which dropped in 2017. On latest single ‘Tepid’, deka’s ghostly vocals creep across the moody soundscape creating an absolutely breathtaking atmosphere.

Sudan Archives – Confessions

L.A. based violinist, singer, songwriter and producer Sudan Archives unveils ‘Confessions’, the lead single from her forthcoming debut album. Produced by Sudan Archives and Will Archer, the track follows up last year’s sensational ‘Sink’ EP which featured stand out singles like ‘Nont For Sale’ and ‘Escape’. On ‘Confessions’, Sudan Archives enlists a sporadic and bold beat which creeps its way across whilst her soulful tones add a comforting warmth.

DJDS & Dijon – Magic Loop

L.A. based duo DJDS (comprised of Same and Jerome) team up with R&B singer Dijon on the magical ‘Magic Loop. Serving as the first taste of music since they released their star-studded sophomore album ‘Big Wave More Fire’ which featured the likes of Amber Mark, Vic Mensa as well as COLORS alumni Marco McKinnis and Empress Of, ‘Magic Leap’ is delectable slice of electro-R&B. Whilst the song encompasses a slightly more mellow and softer sound compared to the pair’s more underground techno sounds, it shines just as bright with Dijon’s exceptional vocals accompanying the infectious “do do do”s that carry the track along.

W. Y. Huang – Mercy {开光}

Singapore born, New York City based singer, songwriter and producer W. Y. Huang concocts a hauntingly beautiful atmosphere in ‘Mercy {开光}’, the lead single from his forthcoming debut EP titled ‘Crossing The Great Water 利涉大川’. The hypnotic and utterly intoxicating song incorporates Eastern-inspired sounds and moulds them seamlessly with more contemporary inflections to create an entirely immersive sound. It’s one of those rare gems that unravels a new layer with each listen – a masterfully produced song that is further heightened by Huang’s ardent vocals.

NINTH CHILD – VIRGO

Ninth Child’s ethereal voice is etched delicately into the soulful edges of her heavy drops with a psychedelic style that provides a sonic refuge for listeners. With a fiercely feminine energy that is welcome in the growing festival scene, her audiences bathe in the reverberated echoes of her emotional lyrics and adventurous electronic soundscapes, which she writes, produces and visually embodies herself through her own creative and artistic direction. Her “LOVERS” EP dropped early in 2018 to a positive reception, alongside her intense high-energy shows, featuring projections, free-form dance and unique costume design.
