Electronic music producer Nuit Oceãn shares vulnerable bonus Fire Divine songs

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.

September 11, 2020 Alt-pop singer Tally Spear release new EP

Alt-pop singer Tally Spear release new EP

Tally Spear has released her brand new EP Tally. The EP displays the varying sides of the London singer’s unique brand of alt-pop, which combines a dark gothic touch with a glamorous carefree shimmer that’s also steeped with attitude throughout.

It features brand new songs including the hard-hitting rock track ‘City Girl’ and a cover of Cream’s ‘I Feel Free’, created with King Charles, which injects an indie pop edge among the psychedelic reverie.

The Tally EP also includes her highly acclaimed singles ‘Already Gone’, ‘Can’t Find What I’m Looking For’, ‘What Do I Want’ and ‘Oddball’.

The EP’s tracks have been produced with Martin Hollis (Adele, Tom Walker, Mark Ronson) and Max Marlow (Kodaline, Declan MeKenna) as well as Marc Dowding and Anthony Trueman of Sound Collective.

Regarding the new single ‘I Feel Free’ Tally says, “I wanted to transform the original Cream track from its ‘light and happy’ sound to something a little darker, offering an eerie contradiction to the positive lyrical repetition we hear in the song of ‘I Feel Free’. This track is a definite contrast to the EP’s themes of confusion and uncertainty, perhaps hinting to what I fundamentally desire.”

Continuing King Charles says, “I’ve always loved this track, the feel is great so it was cool to try it out with Tally. We weren’t too precious about the sessions, recording vocals in the control room and most of the experiments ended up in the mix. Tally has a lot of ideas and it was fun to bounce things around.”

Ahead of the EP release Tally has achieved great support from the likes of Radio X, BBC Introducing, Music Week, Clash, Gigwise, Diva Magazine, It’s All Indie and more. She’s also made an impressive impact on the live scene previously playing Hyde Park’s British Summer Time, supporting Akala at Vegan Camp Out and headlining a packed Upstairs at Ronnie Scott’s.

With the Tally EP she comes armed with her distinct punked-up pop, ready to make a big statement this summer.

March 19, 2020 Singer Donna Lugassy produces Love & Breakups EP

Singer Donna Lugassy produces Love & Breakups EP

Producer of her new EP release, Love & Breakups, Donna Lugassy is on the path of success. Besides producing her own music, Lugassy has collaborated with artists like VINAI, 22Bullets, Kittball Records’ Robosonic & Ferreck Dawn, as well as DJ Sidney Samson’s Deadly Zoo project. She has also featured on influential Youtube channels like Spinnin’ Records, MrRevillz, La Belle Musique, Basshall Movement, FunX, and Tribal Trap. Her total stream count is fast approaching 4 million. 

Luggasy grew up in the Netherlands with her family who is a mixed range of cultures and  ethnicities. As young as ten years old, Lugassy’s talent for singing was noticed. She would at the age of fourteen years attend formal singing lessons. The young songstress would also move on to producing music by herself, as she lost interest in waiting on others to help her make her dreams a reality. Years later, Donna would graduate from Codarts University of the Arts in Rotterdam. 

Donna Luggasy elaborates on her new EP, “In  ‘Moonrise’ there is the push & pull of first getting to know someone. Then ‘Coldest’ is the part where I have fallen for this person and I’m head over heels thinking this is the one I need. ‘Nobody (loves like I do)’ is the part where there are beginning to show cracks in the relationship and I am so invested, letting the other person know I’m all in and would do anything for them. ‘How Bout You’ is about the other person not coming through for me as I feel that they should have and false promises are getting too much. ‘Break Up’ is where I’m getting fed up with the bullshit and reject the other person and get a real big attitude with them and then followed by ‘I wish’, where I feel like I made a mistake by breaking up with them and I have regrets on what I did, rejecting them. Then its usually a wrap and I start all over with a new person back at Moonrise… That’s when the next relationship is starting, to do everything all overagain and repeat the pattern.”

Q&A with ‘Don’t Darken My Door’ singer Becky Bowe

With multiple television appearances and performances with world-renowned musicians, UK musician Becky Bowe has just released her new single ‘Don’t Darken My Door’ via Two Bridge Recordings. She is the winner of BBC’s Pitch Battle 2017 and has performed with famous acts such as Will Young and Kelis. Her previous single ‘That’s How Love Works’ reached number 9 on the UK iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart. This songstress is making waves all before her upcoming EP release. We find out more about this rising star in this interview. 

 

What are some of your earliest memories of music?

My earliest memories of music came from my Nana’s piano. She used to play all sorts of nursery rhymes, the most memorable song was ‘Puff the magic dragon’ that was always playing somewhere in her house. Other than that, my parents had a varied music taste so I was always surrounded by different genres of music.

How do you fill your downtime? Do you still play the keyboard?

I play piano/keyboard at least everyday for a couple of hours because of my work, but don’t necessarily use it for downtime. For downtime, I really enjoy colouring, watching movies, listening to new music anything that keeps my mind relaxed.

Take us through your songwriting process. Are there any particular steps you take when putting music together?

My songwriting process can vary. Sometimes I will be feeling like I just want to play some chords on piano and then I’ll just start humming some melodies, but sometimes it’s the other way round. If I’ve had a really rubbish day lyrics will most likely come first. Then I try to figure out some sort of melody. My best songs have always come from the most relaxed situation, so when I’m doing jobs, when I’m sitting watching TV…everyday activities as my brain is then most relaxed.

Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, which do you prefer?

OOOOOO this is a tough one. The studio and creation is always so much fun but can be quite tedious especially with the amount of repetition involved so it takes a lot of patience to really get the correct sound and vibe you want but it’s so much fun experimenting with the different ideas, sounds, instruments, but I think I’d go with performing and interacting. I’ve always been a chatterbox, so on stage if people are interacting with me while I’m singing and performing it’s the best feeling, as it’s just like having a good chin wag with my friends.

What is the most memorable response you have had to your music?

The most memorable response was when I released my first proper single in 2018. I can remember the amount of love that people showed the song and how well it was received where I lived, that’s what really kept me going. There are so many memorable moments probably many I’ve forgotten but the important thing to me is the love that’s shown towards my music.

If you could put together a radio show, what kind of music would you play?

GREAT QUESTION!!!! The music I’d play would be very varied but within the same vibe that I like. It would be a mixture of RnB, Pop, Soul, Blues, Jazz, Rap the works. I have so many favourite artists and songs within this sort of realm.

Name five artists and their albums who would appear on your radio show

Emily King – Sides (Acoustic Album) 

PJ Morton – Gumbo 

Daniel Ceaser – Freudian 

Lizzo – Cuz I Love You 

Alabama Shakes – Sound & Color

What would you like to achieve with your music? What does success look like to you?

I would love my music to just be enjoyed and loved as much as possible. Success to me is people listening to my music to escape or feel better…just to be able for them to feel any sort of emotion. Music is a gift and to be able to write and sing my own music, and put it out in the world is leaps and bounds better than I ever thought I would have been able to do. Either way, I feel I’ve achieved what I want in my music, I just hope people listen to it and love it!

Does your single ‘Don’t Darken My Door’ set the tone of your upcoming EP release? 

Don’t darken my door I feel captures my new vibe I wanted to create. My EP represents growth and I feel this song really shows the growth within my music. My other songs play with some of my older styles mixed with this new vibe so I feel this new single really helps set the correct tone.

One last thought to leave your fans with?

Keep listening to new music and supporting new artists. Any support is good support! P.s I hope you like my new single and enjoy my new music coming out!! Eeeee
