Catalyna celebra su cumpleaños con el lanzamiento de su nuevo sencillo “Astucia”
La cantante puertorriqueña perteneciente al sello discográfico del ídolo urbano Yandel (Y Entertainment), presenta su más reciente sencillo “Astucia”, una canción cargada de sentimiento, desamor y desilusión, que se estrena el mismo día de su cumpleaños. “Astucia” se encuentra disponible en todas las plataformas digitales.
The lead single off the EP is the title track, “Backseat.” It’s a blend of subversive pop-infused dance beats and groovy guitar riffs, disrupting the notions of rock music. The song beckons a contemplative state, and has a longing for some sort of order out of the vast vacuum that COVID-19 created around the world and especially amongst the artist community. This song is passive, and aims to put the listener in the backseat so they can take a breath and listen.

King Yosef announces new EP & shares “Fair Bloom” video
“”Fair Bloom” is a song that I’ve been excited to share because it’s leaning into a new sonic space that I haven’t showcased before. This feels like my first real singing release as well as full band feeling, and is closer to what I’ve always wanted my music to be. The lyrical premise is my relationship with God as a child and the strange isolation of having religious family who “feel” his spirit and guidance, and feeling the opposite way and not having the tools to make sense of it. It is a song of empowerment and finality to my younger self’s questions.”

Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together.
With Love, Foo Fighters

TODAY: Colyn Cameron of Wake Owl shares charming, twang kissed folk single with visual for “Fault Lines”
“Fault Lines” is a charming and playful new song, in which Colyn divulges, “once I took the world apart to find a little fun,” expressing his search for deeper meaning or an unconventional experience.
The soulful single oozes personality as a steady bassline drives the airy melodies forward. It builds to a simmering climax as Jairus Mozee lays down hypnotic vocals, “I know the truth is telling me, I know the truth ‘cause it lives inside of me, will you go with me.”
Fresh off the lead single “See It Through” with another label regular Qlank, the Phoenix-based house producer Ekonovah is ready to share his sophomore EP with the world. On it, he continues to merge his two passions of creating unique, bass-heavy grooves with impactful songwriting. His journey of adding his own vocal work into the equation started at the aptly titled ‘The Beginning’ EP from last year, and his follow-up effort finds him honing those skills even further. The title track is a moody, low-slung number with a brooding topline, whereas “Sycamore” shows him employing a straightforward dancefloor-focused groove that we have come to know and love from the fast-rising artist.
Title: Between The Lines EP
Label: IN / ROTATION
Genre: Bass House
Release Date: March 29
“I made this track in the dead of winter during the pandemic last year. I was super isolated, spending most of my time in my basement studio, feeling just incredibly stir crazy. I reached a point where I was basically craving chaos, just wanting to see the monotony shaken up. So this track is basically a snapshot of what was going through my body and mind at the time.”
