Today The 405 debuted “Bright Lights”, Gibbz first single + lyric video from his upcoming EP ‘Oh My God’ Out 12/16. When talking about the track Gibbz said, “Bright Lights was the first track written for the record. It’s about a night out with friends on whatever drugs you can find. The bright light is referring to how some substances can cause lights and colors to be more vibrant. The pacing of the track and its build of instrumentation are to show how there’s a delicate balance between taking just the right amount, and going too far.” You can catch Gibbz on tour this fall with Dragonette and also, check out his podcast “Drinking With Gibbz”.

5150 Publishing Accepting Raver Stories Submissions

5150 Publishing Inc. has announced a Call For Submissions to the electronic music community and beyond, for a new book endeavor entitled THE RAVER STORIES PROJECT. Slated to be the first of its kind in North America, the book will consist of stories submitted by fans of electronic music events about their most memorable raving experiences.

We’re doing this in the spirit of 90s rave magazine Lotus, which was a much-loved publication by ravers, for ravers. THE RAVER STORIES PROJECT is similar in that it provides partygoers with the opportunity to express their experiences and explain why electronic music is such an important and dynamic part of their lives.”

AQUILA YOUNG ‘Crimson Criminal’

Krusoe unveils spectacular video for ‘Rivers Run riot’

Capturing the nostalgia and faded glory of the seaside haunts he grew up around, the new track is an eerie, atmospheric take on alternative indie. Subtle hints of electronica show through the cracks, creating an intriguing soundscape upon which Krusoe lays his superbly written melodies.

The new video was born from the knowledge that a lot of people suffer from anxiety and depression, and many are stuck with the choice to medicate or not. Speaking on the video, director Daniel Harris said: “Often, those little pills have strong and character-changing effects and the choice to medicate has been getting harder and harder for a lot of sufferers. The second male’s character, although sometimes ambiguously real, acts as a devil-on-his-shoulder character and an enabler to the lead’s anxiety. Amongst these heavier themes, the narrative lightens the delivery of the subject matter and the piece is tied together by a hazy and ethereal performance from Krusoe himself.”
