Following the success of 2020’s The Making Of A Paracosm, electronic producer and songwriter Kasbo returns with a two-part remix EP series starting with “The Making of a Paracosm (Remixes Vol. 1)” out now on ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective. The release was announced alongside an ethereal and lush remix of stand-out album track ‘Lune’ feat Vancouver Sleep Clinic by Manilla Killa, who has remixed Lana Del Rey, London Grammar, and Dawn Golden in the past. It received impressive support from the likes of Dancing Astronaut and Acid Stag to name a couple. Other remixes on the EP come from Duskus, BOII, Just A Gent & Rando, and Mindchatter.

Kasbo (real name Carl Garsbo) is the 24-year-old electronic producer and songwriter (with a hugely impressive 420.9M+ combined streams), who released his anticipated and critically acclaimed second album “The Making of a Paracosm” on October 23rd 2020. The Gothenburg-based artist has received acclaim from the likes of Billboard (featured in Dance Ones To Watch), The Fader, Dancing Astronaut, Stereogum, Pilerats, Nest HQ, Complex, High Snobiety, NYLON and FLAUNT. He has performed at a number of internationally renowned festivals in the past, such as Coachella, Splendour In The Grass, Electric Forest Festival, Firefly Festival and more, also selling out major North American venues on his first-ever headline tour. In 2019 he toured with ODESZA on their run and capped off with a show at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado.

Electronic music producer TSHA announces upcoming album

Hotly tipped by everyone from Annie Mac, Bonobo and Gorillaz to Billboard, NME, Crack, Mixmag and DJ Mag, TSHA is rapidly emerging as one of the most exciting talents coming out of the UK. Forthcoming EP “OnlyL” due for release on 27th August showcases a confident creative who is constantly developing and refining her own distinct feel and sound.

The release arrives off the back of a stellar run for the young artist including the launch of her new bi-monthly ‘Jackfruit Radio’ show on Apple Music—which debuted with a guest spot from femme culture founder Elkka—releasing her first BBC Essential Mix and a Minimix for Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, and being named BBC Radio 1’s “Future Artist” for January 2021 and “Star of 2020” by BBC Introducing. Her most recent EP, 2020’s “Flowers”, made multiple End-Of-Year listings, and was met with widespread praise from the likes of Billboard, NME—who described the EP as “emotion-filled electronic anthems from a star in the making”—NPR, Resident Advisor, Mixmag, NYLON, DJ Mag, Dancing Astronaut and many more. She has also been tipped for greatness by essentially the whole of BBC Radio 1 specialist DJ crew including Annie Mac, Jack Saunders, Jaguar, Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Ricky, Melvin & Charlie and Flava D.

On EP title track and lead single ‘OnlyL’, TSHA’s innate gift for producing genre-defying, classy electronic pop is at the fore. An instant earworm, it features vocals from NIMMO aka Sarah Nimmo and Reva Gauntlett, with TSHA juxtaposing the dark lyrics against the track’s upbeat instrumental.

Power’ plays to another of TSHA’s loves: club music. With her DJ career flourishing, the global pandemic shut down the nighttime industries and all access to dancefloors and the shared experience and exhilaration of clubbing. ‘Power’ encapsulates all of that pent up energy and love and is aimed squarely at the dancefloor–an absolutely storming four-to-the-floor groove.

‘I Know’ shows off yet another facet of TSHA’s extraordinary production chops. A perfect marriage of live musicianship and electronics, it’s a beautifully textured and melancholy work built around a gorgeous hang drum motif.

Gearing up for a busy summer schedule at UK festivals including Access, Bigfoot, Standon Calling, Gala, Boardmasters, Lost Village, ION, Hideout, Inner State and Detonate, TSHA will also be appearing at Field Day in August 2021, sharing the bill with the likes of Bicep, Floating Points, Jayda G and Mount Kimbie.

Artwork for “OnlyL” is by illustrator Felicity Marshall. Limited edition 12” released 27th August 2021.

Electropop singer MERTDER shares sinister song, ‘Salma’

MERTDER (Silent T) is a dark and exciting new take on electronic dance music, heavily inspired by his London roots but not without a shade of his Turkish heritage.Debuting his single “Rampage” this year it gained traction, provoking Lithuanian DJ Jarośka to create two remixes he toured the festival circuit with.

“London was the perfect setting for me to fall in love with a variety of genres over the years. My music takes and dances with a few of those but hints that the others are still there, but camouflaged, waiting to be found.”

February 19, 2021 Electronic music producer Nuit Oceãn shares vulnerable bonus Fire Divine songs

Electronic music producer Nuit Oceãn shares vulnerable bonus Fire Divine songs

Releasing the dark and melancholic EP Fire Divine last year, Nuit Oceãn has now released an extended version of the EP to the public. This edition features two memorable songs ‘Tears’ and ‘Fearless’, which focus on heartbreak and rising up once the tears have dried up as the focal point. 

Stream / Download Fire Divine Extended EP

The producer does not tread lightly with his words and brooding soundscapes, and most importantly the chilling vulnerability that is clearly evident in his work. Previously featured on RCRD LBL (read feature) with Fire Divine EP release, we commented: “This EP shows the essence of vulnerability and strength in one breath. It is a work of art that can be interpreted in multiple meanings, but we can all agree that this EP is fragrant and colorful as well as easy on the ears.”

Nuit Oceãn continues to make music with impact and substance with this latest release. Singing about matters of the heart never sounded so visceral with his latest singles ‘Tears’ and ‘Fearless’. Capturing universal themes such as heartbreak and heartache against mesmerizing downtempo notes paints a vivid and heart wrenching picture of what it means to be human.
