Hunter Blair Ambrose Releases End of Summer Single, “Alone Together”

by

New York City-based Pop/R&B artist and songwriter, Hunter Blair Ambrose released her new single, “Alone Together.” The single gives listeners the perfect closing summer bop while they begin preparing for Autumn.

Amid the early days of the coronavirus pandemic and a worldwide lockdown, Hunter Blair Ambrose found solace in songwriting and introspection, using this almost eerily quiet time for creativity and self-reflection.

When creating “Alone Together” she took 1980s bombast and met it with layered synths and soaring melodies after being inspired by The Weeknd’s pandemic era blockbuster album, After Hours. The single came together as a glittering, late summer disco banger with deeply reflective lyrics that a post-pandemic world can certainly relate to.

“ ‘Alone Together’ reflects a universal feeling of isolation, loneliness and melancholia felt around the world during 2020 met with my own reflections of failings in love.”Hunter Blair Ambrose

Inspired by dark, synth-pop, chilling Toronto R&B, and the melodic hip hop of the 2010s, Hunter has created a sound that has been shaped by the music that has been the soundtrack to her life. Influenced by iconic artists such as Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Ariana Grande, Drake, David Bowie, Prince, and The Weeknd, Hunter creates immersive and well-rounded music along with an image that is equal parts provocative as they are compelling.

By the age of 17, she had immersed herself in the company of industry giants, working alongside Grammy-award winning musicians and producers such as Narada Michael Walden, and working as an in-house songwriter and studio vocalist Tarpan Studios in San Francisco, CA.

Shortly after the inception of her career, she enrolled in Boston’s Berklee College of Music and quickly emerged as one of the school’s many promising, young talents.

Following her departure from Berklee, from 2017 through 2019, Hunter wrote and produced material with her core creative team for her debut EP, Scorpio Rising (April 2020). The project was supported by the singles, “Right Now” and “November” which featured an interpolation of Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro.”

Listeners can look forward to more singles and music videos dropping this year to immerse them deeper into the world Scorpio Season created when released in April. 

 

Cameron Philip Teams Up with Good Charlotte’s Billy Martin in New Single, “Arms Tonight”

by

Toronto- based multi-hyphenated artist, Cameron Philip has released his single, “Arms Tonight,” continuing his five-year streak of very successful releases. 

Produced by Good Charlotte’s Billy Martin, who is all too familiar with intertwining genres, “Arms Tonight” contains a rich blend of emo and angst perfectly suited for the teen within each of us.

The single fuses together a catchy pop tune with strong electronic elements that for a second, almost allows you to forget this upbeat track is actually a song about being too sad to continue living. 

Canadian multi-genre artist Cameron Philip began his music career making k-pop dub/remix videos on Youtube. Quickly, Cameron amassed a purely organic and impressive following, millions of views, and a feature in Glamour’s “You Sang My Song,” where he caught the attention and several compliments from BTS after toplining “Black Swan” with his own rap verses.

Cameron went on to win 2017 and 2018 “Hip-Hop Artist of The Year” at the Niagara Music Awards, as well as “Song of The Year” in 2019 for his single, “Pretender.”

Continuing with the momentum from the NMA’s, Cameron refused to take his foot off the gas pedal and released his first two full-length albums, Feelings and Failures and The Adventure, almost back to back in 2019. Both albums garnered over one million streams each and left this new artist hungry to continue surpassing any and all expectations.

“When it comes to music, Cameron Philip is no pretender.” Thorold Today

When it seemed like the world was put on pause because of the global pandemic, Cameron continued working on his craft and released his first EP, Neo: Dreamland, in 2020. Although releasing an album as a somewhat new artist during the pandemic was a risk, it was quickly made clear the seven-track EP was going to be another hit when streams began coming through in the hundreds of thousands. 

Cameron’s ability to be vulnerable very early on in his career and use his music to explore his own issues with mental health, love, life, and everything in between, interlocked him to his ever-growing fanbase in a deeply personal and relatable way that has directly led to his success. While still very much in his feelings, Cameron released his longest and most vulnerable album to date, Neo: Dreamworld, in 2021, and to no one’s surprise, it was yet another hit. 

Currently, Cameron’s Instagram boasts a casual 123K followers, while his Youtube sits at about 729K subscribers and another 75K listeners/ followers on Spotify, not to mention the couple million streams he’s racked up.

As of now, he shows no signs of slowing down, which I’m sure his listeners are thankful for after the insanity that still very much is 2020 and 2021. Cameron is currently working on his fourth full-length album, Love Punch, which will be released this fall.

Nikitaa Releases Single and Music Video, “Boomerang”

by

The transcontinental Pop Star continues to build a massive multi-lingual discography

Mumbai-LA-based pop singer-songwriter, Nikitaa, has released her latest single and accompanying music video, “Boomerang.” After a successful year of releases and a Netflix track feature, Nikitaa continues to build a massive multi-lingual goddess pop discography.

“Boomerang” was written and produced by Nikitaa and is her cathartic release and declaration of freedom from a delusional ex. After trying to make a friendship work with her ex, Nikitaa realized the relationship was more parasitic than mutualistic and it was time to cut ties.

Using guitar samples that reminded her of motion comics and superhero storylines, she parts ways with her usual upbeat pop sound for this single, choosing to lean more towards the hip-hop genre. Nikitaa collaborated with American rap duo, Flyana Boss, on “Boomerang.” The all-women hip-hop track penned by Nikitaa has also been co-written by Flyana Boss.

Opening up on the collaboration, Nikitaa said: “I went to music school with both Bobbi and Yinka and I’ve been watching them put out hit after hit since they’ve come together as Flyana Boss! They write so cleverly, unapologetically, and authentically. I have their music on repeat on my phone all the time. They were the natural first choice for me! So I hit them up, sent them the demo and they loved it!”

Nikitaa, who describes “Boomerang” as her personal “cord-cutting ritual,” wanted her listeners to hear the lyrics as a story and feel as if they were experiencing escaping this shady character she’s singing about firsthand. Continuing on her path to show her listeners a different side of herself, she put the darker-sounding single and music video together all at once, defying her normal songwriting routine and instead let her anger pour out freely and form itself into the perfect mixture of beauty and pain.

Intertwining cinematic sounds with a true orchestral bass instead of synth also helped her create the contrasting sound she had imagined.

“Overall, it’s an aggressive sound, but the vocals are still pretty, with some sparkle. I fell in love with the contrast and it reminded me of Taylor Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do,’ but with a sonically darker palette.” -Nikitaa

Born and raised in Mumbai, singer-songwriter Nikitaa, who has spent her recent years in LA mastering her art, is poised to be a breakthrough star on the independent music scene, creating a witty blend of sassy melodies, partnered with powerful lyrics that give added depth to each of her compositions. Nikitaa combines ethereal Pop/RnB with a subtle nod to the South-Asian soundscape to bring a new genre she calls Goddess Pop.

In 2020, the transcontinental pop singer has put out more than 4 singles – “Tum Aur Main”, “Universe,” “Goddess,” and “Clutch” and sang for a Netflix film Masaba Masaba and she promises not to stop.

A born entertainer, with the ability to transcend language, culture, and ethnicity, Nikitaa’s self-proclaimed mission as an artist is to break down barriers, shatter stereotypes and bring people together under the universal language of music.

Riot Ten and Stoutty Revealed as Artists Behind The Mysterious Project Pushing Daizies. New Single “I Miss You” with Lucii. Out Now on Dim Mak

by

Pushing Daizies return to Dim Mak with one of their most meaningful releases yet – and a big announcement that reveals the artist duo behind the mysterious project. “I Miss You” features singer/songwriter/producer Lucii, with earlier releases on Subsidia and WAKAAN under her belt, whose velvety vocals croon out lyrics about missing all of someone – the good and the bad parts. Pushing Daizies lends their signature style to the track with future bass beats complemented by lush melodies, making “I Miss You” a relatable song that will tug at the heartstrings of any listener who has ever felt the nostalgic pang of missing someone, whether a lover or a lost friendship. The track also reveals more about the making of Pushing Daizies – it’s Riot Ten and Stoutty, who began the project during quarantine with the goal of making music that was outside their norms as individual artists. Read on below for more from Pushing DaiziesLucii and Riot Ten:

I Miss You‘ is that one song for someone we always miss. We hope this song brings back great memories of whoever that is, as it did for us during the creation of it.” – Pushing Daizies

I wrote this song when I was reflecting on the memories of a past relationship. It dawned on me that everything that I used to get really annoyed with ended up being the things that I was actually missing. Missing someone, whether it be a lost friendship or a failed relationship, is hard. The trips, the fights, the hanging out, the going out, it leaves a certain void that isn’t just replaceable overnight. To me, that’s what I wrote this song about, the absence of the presence of the person.” – Lucii

Pushing Daizies is a project that really began during the pandemic. With no shows happening, my livelihood all but taken away, stuck in quarantine with no end in sight, life became a little depressing. However, with the new found time, I began talking to my good friend Stoutty about exploring new genres together. Initially, we weren’t even thinking about making an entire project out of it. We just wanted to make powerful and emotional music that would be relatable during such crazy times. Something completely opposite of the music that we currently make, and we wasted little time before going full steam ahead. We worked so much on the sound that in just a few months we ended up with 2 albums worth of music, literally. At that point, we knew this had the potential to be something special. And thus, Pushing Daizies was born. This project means so much to us because it allows us to take listeners on a completely different journey. And it allows us to express our art and push boundaries further than we ever thought possible. We are pushing daizies.” – Riot Ten

Pushing Daizies is the pseudonym of US-based producers Riot Ten and Stoutty joining forces. The enigmatic duo makes groovy, bass-heavy, electronic dance music that creates an emotional roller coaster, pulling at the heartstrings of its listeners. The project, which initially began as multiple collaborations between the two artists, transpired as their synergy saw no end in sight. “Once we found our rhythm, we knew we had something special. It was bigger than just a few singles. I guess you could say that the project was an accident in the greatest way possible,” said one of the producers. The term “pushing daisies” refers to the flowers that grow over a burial plot when someone dies, which is symbolic of the cycles of life and death, light and dark. Said differently, when someone dies, life is created.

Lucii – the Orlando hailing producer and DJ is making waves. The music is captivating and is drizzled with swirling melodies searching lyrics and drifting vocals. Lucii is able to show off her otherworldly production style, as well as songwriting prowess all in one.

by

R3HAB and Gabry Ponte join forces to bring us “The Portrait” on R3HAB‘s CYB3RPVNK label, a unique and groovy track that paints a detailed sonic image of a mysterious and beautiful woman. Opening with an ominous bassline and singsong vocals, the track uses descriptive lyrics and complementing topline along with instrumental elements to describe its subject. The “Oh la la la” of the course continues the lullaby-esque quality, while the contrasting bassline becomes deeper and bouncier, layering in instrumental melodies for an additional point of interest. This unique track is the first time R3HAB and Gabry have teamed up; read on to hear from both artists about the making of “The Portrait

Gabry has always been a leader in the dance space, and it’s been a pleasure creating ‘The Portrait‘ with him. This song took a while to get just right, but it was worth the time it took us to capture the confidence, mystery, and swagger of the song’s subject. I hope you see a bit of yourself in this audio “portrait” we painted. I can’t wait to play this at my upcoming festivals.” – R3HAB

When I first heard the idea of the song I fell in love with it, and I thought it would be the perfect match for me and R3HAB to collaborate. Working with him on the production was very challenging and inspiring. He has such a great vision!” – Gabry Ponte

In 2020 alone R3HAB celebrated over 900M Spotify streams. He is currently the most discovered artist on Spotify, one of Spotify’s top 150 most streamed artists across all genres worldwide, and ranked #13 on prestigious DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs chart. With his combination of innate artistry and innovative attitude, in 2021 R3HAB is continuing his journey among electronic music’s elite.

It’s been quite the ride so far for Gabry Ponte. Producing an international hit single by the end of the ’90s with his band Eiffel 65, the song “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” turned into a dance classic that’s still played to this day. In the meantime, the Italian DJ/producer kept releasing solo material, always in rhythm with the newest sounds in electronic music. In 2019 he dropped another worldwide smash with his LUM!X collab “Monster,” followed last year by two more hit collabs with LUM!X in the shape of “The Passenger” (along with D.T.E.) and “Scare Me” (along with KSHMR), plus teamups with Timmy Trumpet (co-producing the title track for Timmy‘s “Mad World” album) and Galwaro and LIZOT (co-producing the popular cover of “Like A Prayer“). His latest release “Thunder” (with LUM!X and Prezioso) has been topping the charts all over Europe and already has over 13M streams on Spotify in 2 months.

by

CYB3RPVNK veteran Skytech returns to R3HAB‘s label with his rendition of BANKS‘s hit “Beggin For Thread,” an energetic and big-room influenced gem produced in collaboration with South Korea-born, Sweden-based master of covers and reworks LILO and LA-based singer/songwriter Cappa, whose past collaborations include working with SNBRNJustin CarusoTELYKast, and more.

BANKS‘s original song “Beggin For Thread” was one of my personal anthems of 2014, so when I first heard LILO‘s electronic demo version, I immediately fell in love with it, and I had to jump on it to finish the production. The process was a lot of fun, and I believe I added some Skytech flavor to it.” – Skytech.

I really enjoyed working with Skytech and Cappa on this beauty and hope to be working with them in the near future again. I hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed creating it. It’s an honor dropping this tune on one of my idol’s label!” – LILO

The process of working with Skytech and LILO was great. They already came up with the idea for the track. Since we’re located in different parts of the world, I went to the studio and laid the vocals with my engineer. We actually communicated a lot over Instagram. It was a fun process!” – Cappa

Mateusz Dziewulski, better known by his artist name Skytech – is already a household name in his home country of Poland, and the rest of the world is soon to follow. His name first appeared on the map when R3HAB discovered his original track “Tiger” and then helped Skytech put final production touches on it, proving to be a winning team after “Tiger” skyrocketed to over 100M streams on all platforms. Since then, the two have worked on numerous tracks together via the CYB3RPVNK imprint, such as “Fuego,” “What You Do,” “Hyperspace,” “Starflight,” and more, fusing their sounds to make music that is club and festival-friendly while never sacrificing substance and soul.

This is one of the first songs we ever wrote together. ‘I’ll Be Alright‘ is a song about past relationships, and how no matter what has happened, you’ll always be alright. We’ve been holding onto this one for a while now and can’t wait to hear the response!” – Pushing Daizies
