FIRE DOWN BELOW release new video


Today, Somalia-born and Toronto-based vocal powerhouse Amaal shares her new single “Coming and Going.”

Over airy and stripped-back production, her stark vocals simply stun. Emotions translate effortlessly in each verse before culminating on a hypnotic hook. The track illuminates a combination of raw songcraft and unmitigated talent. Next week on Tuesday, March 26, she drops the official lyric video. Stay tuned for it.


Hold On opens with a dreamy, swirling synthesiser, then blossoms into a hook-laden electronic dance pop jam, buoyed by percolating rhythms and sharp synthesisers. It feels like a love song, but there’s a darkness there; as Philip Slabber’s gentle vocal dives smartly in and out of the layers of the track, it’s impossible not to feel moved. Speaking about the track, Leon De Baughn says”I remember the idea for this track first came to me while I was driving home from the beach. We had just got back from touring in the US and getting back to our summer inspired this track. It started with the chords and the floating vocal line that ended up building into a club beat with the bouncing bass line.”


The French DJ and producer and Belgian bass music prodigy teamed up after running into each other at the airport in London two years ago. “Snake said he wanted to work together, but only on one condition,” Eptic says. “We had to make the hardest track possible. It took a lot of time and elbow grease, but we ended up with something next level and I couldn’t be more proud. I’ve been opening with this for last few months and it absolutely destroys the dance floor.”

REAR NAKED CHOKE Release New Single & Official Video ‘I Will Rise’

“In essence I Will Rise is about overcoming a difficult time or struggle in life and coming out of it stronger than before. That could be a relationship ending, a health scare or problem, addiction or anything that we, as humans, deal with. We had the song kicking around for a while and the lyrics were originally different. Mick had never really been 100% happy with them. So when we were going into the studio he had already decided he was going to rework them. Around that time he was dealing with some things in his personal relationship that really fed into that and in the end the lyrics were much stronger and something we feel that just about anyone can relate to. We all struggle we just have to remember that if we persevere then we can rise, bigger and brighter than we ever thought we could be.
