LOGIC1000 – Shares New Track ‘Rush’ | Out Now Via Therapy
Logic1000, the alias of Berlin-based producer Samantha Poulter has today shared a new single, ‘Rush’. ‘Rush’ retains the playful dance-floor ready energy of February’s ‘Can’t Stop Thinking About’, this time with an eye on the earlier hours with a deeper baseline underpinning snatches of vocals, a track to get lost in. The track comes alongside a visualiser by Sarah Banks.
Sharing: La Meyer / Minimal Deep Tech Inspired in Barranquilla (COL) and Colombian Drums
It´s debut time on Dualism Records. Even though the label was established in Miami, we are always thrilled to introduce some of the coolest and most talented rising new producers from our motherland, Colombia. We present “Energy Love” by La Meyer. Her real name, Nathaly Jennifer Rose Alejandra Borrero Meyer is pretty resounding as her music. Her origins in Barranquilla, the city of the Carnival, Shakira, Sofia Vergara and foster home for Joe Arroyo, are colorful and pretty rich as her skills playing the Colombian tambora. Later in his life, she got to live in Bogotá, the country´s capital, where she reconnected with house music, that sound she heard for the first time at her house with her older sister. Years have passed by since then. La Meyer made a life promoting parties and after making herself in the art of mixing. Then, during the pandemic she finally made her music skills to the studio. This is a first taste of it: deep, pretty 4/4 house music beats, with a unique groove brought from the roots of the Colombian Caribbean coasts.
The four piece band, who has defied the odds transcending the loneliness and isolation of lockdown to find each other in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic through a Craigslist ad, offers connection to listeners through their music through trying times. Recorded with producer/engineer Ethan Kaufmann (Ryan Cabrera, Avril Lavigne), the indie-pop collection is deceptively bright, fueled by addictive hooks and an infectious charm that belies the collection’s often-weighty subject matter. Frontwoman Nancy Bombard’s lyrics are raw and vulnerable, grappling openly with loss, insecurity, and mental health, and her bandmates—drummer Melissa Koziel, bassist Brian Bello, and guitarist Ryan Reynolds—deliver similarly confident, captivating performances, mixing pop sheen and rock and roll grit with immersive electronic flourishes and streaks of punk defiance.

Loren Beri shares new single about fictionalized real life mania: “Prince V” featuring Itamar is out today, ahead of debut EP
“Prince V” arrives as the follow up to Berí’s debut single, “My Brooklyn (Is Better Than Yours),” which sees the musician begin to craft an alternate universe of characters, both real and imagined, where the forthcoming EP takes place and gets its name — in a romanticized version of New York City called the Stray Cat Kingdom. FLOOD Magazine, who premiered the track, called it “a wildly magnetic—and hilarious—homage to NYC.” FLOOD continues, “The song pairs Berí’s bubbly synths and catchy melodies with tales of a fizzled cross-country fling, visions of Berlin and brunch and Bryant Park, and plenty of tongue-in-cheek digs..with a joyful, roving feel.”
Skye Wallace Says “Everything Is Fine”
On Skye Wallace’s new single, “Everything Is Fine,” she asks this tough question of a friend, and of herself. The new song, which builds its potency as Wallace pays homage to our “plaid-wearing, Doc Martens-donning foremothers of pop-punk” (Bustle), is about getting unstuck from a looping reel of one’s own mistakes. This repetition of a new mantra, which also serves as hook and outro, offers much needed reassurance not to fear the question, or the answer.

It’s about telling yourself you’re special until you believe it and feeling Godly just for yourself. It’s about severing the primal need for outside approval and taking active action to get what you want and need.”
