MARCUS GAD AND TAMAL SET A GLOBAL “TEMPO” ON THEIR LATEST SINGLE
Marcus Gad, the fast-rising reggae artist hailing from New Caledonia, a French island in the South Pacific Ocean, embodies a spiritual movement of soul music and meditative roots that is uniquely his. For his latest single “Tempo,” he teams up with French producer Tamal to give us a slice of their dynamic, globally influenced reggae style from their upcoming album Brave New World, due out later this year on Easy Star Records.
“I wrote ‘Nothing To Be Said’ when I came home to Surrey during the beginning of the pandemic,” says Babylung. “I realized I wasn’t going back to the UK and I couldn’t keep running from my dark past as an at-risk youth. We all face inner demons that hold us back from our destiny, but once we overcome them, there’s nothing to be said, only a purpose to fulfill.”

Tall Heights: Welcome Peaceful Lullaby
On the release, Tim with Tall Heights states, ” ‘The Mountain’ was inspired by a photograph of a friend’s grandfather on his last day, sitting in a chair and looking at the Green Mountains of Vermont. We never knew the man, but the photo said so much. When we decided to film a video for “The Mountain” in Paul’s attic, we invited fans to send us their special photos and stories of friends and loved ones who had passed away so we could include them in the video. Each photo has its own aching beauty. They remind us of the connections we all share, and the way we can preserve the presence of another within the eternal natural world. Thank you to everyone who shared a photo and a memory.”

Bleu Clair is making his way back over to Insomniac Records with his follow-up single “Have Me All,” featuring Jelita.
The Indonesian-bred producer has quickly positioned himself as one of the hottest exports in house music. His signature blend of quirky grooves have not only spawned a wave of emulators following his cues, but also led to a string of collabs with Matroda and the mighty Martin Garrix (under his Ytram pseudonym). Last year, he turned up on Insomniac wielding a wonky two-track ‘Hypnotized’ EP, followed by an off-kilter remix of Habstrakt’s “Gotta Be.” Bleu Clair is now back in the act with his next issue, “Have Me All,” a frisky number backed by a coquettish vocal delivery from Jelita.
Artist: Bleu Clair

American Terror Stream Brand New Video!
The song was written and recorded during Covid lockdown. Between racial, class and political tensions and not to mention police issues, it felt like the world was going mad and everyone is all the sudden turning on each other.
So basically I am trying to say I don’t need your bullshit when I am trying to live my life and treat all equal. Black, white, republican, democrat, gay, straight or whatever you identify with. I don’t care.. I never saw anyone as different, so why assume I do when you don’t know me. People are asking not to be judged, but they judge you if you don’t speak up or out about it. So I’m sick of the “Attitude”.
