Following his critically acclaimed album "Fallout" earlier this year, prolific bass artist KRANE returns with his latest masterpiece "Changes." Produced in collaboration with Max Styler, "Changes" finds KRANEreinventing himself yet again to create a sophisticated and dreamy soundscape; the track delivers a slowly unwinding bassline and mesmerizing synths, all complemented by GOLDN's soulful vocals to tell the story of the sacrifices we make for love. KRANE's penchant for emotive bass fused with Styler's organic grooves is undeniably a winning combination. "Changes" is out on KRANE's SESSIONS, where KRANE has released much of his recent music.
Over the last several years, KRANE has been a metaphorical butterfly - his production style is constantly evolving, always inventive, and undeniably captivating. With over 26 million streams on his Spotifychannel, numerous praises from industry tastemakers - such as being named Billboard's "Artist to Watch in 2018" - and his "Fallout" album rising to #6 on the iTunes Dance charts, KRANE has certainly earned his reputation. From the emotional future bass of "Chemical" to the hard-hitting trap of "Fall Apart," KRANEhas never confined himself to a genre, but created a style and a space where such labels no longer matter. Through his project SESSIONS, he collaborates with unknown producers of all genres as a way to both give back to aspiring artists and continue experimenting with his own sound. KRANE is one of electronic music's most exciting artists right now, so stay tuned to see what he comes up with next.
Australian pop/dance artist, Starley, has released her new beautiful, and deeply personal single ‘Love is Love’.
After the international success of her debut single, ‘Call on Me’, Starley spent the last year in the studio working on her forthcoming untitled album slated for a summer 2018 release. ‘Love is Love’ is the follow up to her global smash hit ‘Call on Me’ which went 4 x Platinum in Australia, 1xPlatinum in the US (and so on) with more than 1 billion streams globally. There are few artists in the world who can claim to have accomplished as much, in such a short period of time, as Sydney phenomenon Starley.
Starley: “‘Love is Love’ is a very personal song for me. I had written a first draft for it that had a lot less detail. After sharing it with a few friends, it seemed it wasn’t hitting home all the way, and I realized it was because I was leaving out the parts of the story I felt uncomfortable sharing. I decided to re-write it and dig deeper. That felt scary and liberating at the same time. From that process ‘Love is Love’ was born. I’m nervous and excited to share it with the world!”
Starley’s captivating music is written with a combination of integrity and deeply personal lyrics that clearly resonates with her fans, adding to her chart success so far. “The cover for ‘Love is Love’ is not to be about me. Although, this song is my personal story, it’s a song for everyone, so I felt like a heart was the perfect way to go. The plot twist is that the colors I chose are the very colors of the bisexual flag. I feel like there should be a flag that represents love in all forms - interracial, interfaith, gay, straight, bisexual, trans, and so on. Until that exists, I’ve chosen to use the colors of the bisexual flag because they relate to my personal journey.” comments Starley on the inspiration behind her single artwork.

Rising leftfield electronic producer Plage 84 (Beach 84) is pleased to announce details of a brand new EP 'Was It Real via cult French label Roche Musique this summer and will pre-empt it's release with a stunning new track 'Nowhere'.
In order to depict his musical and personal journey, Plage 84 collaborated with the African artist Dodji Efoui. A painter, musician and singer he met during his trip, who creates all his artwork with materials he finds in the streets.
He details the EP: "I see these 5 songs as short stories. The artists featured come from all over the world. It was important for me to work with different colors and sounds. It took some time to finish this project but thanks to my amazing collaboration with African artist, Dodji Efoui, it finally came to fruition."
Two years after his first EP 'Not Too Fast' released on Roche Musique, Plage 84 now returns with a second project. The young artist goes deeper into his influences, a 5 track EP with a jazz background, on top of which hip hop melts with soul and a tiny bit of rock. A very refreshing and different music inspired by his multiple journeys abroad. Two years in teh making, a period during which he discovered many new influences (African, Arabic, Asian). A transitional period where a lot of questions arose - 'Was It Real'?
The EP opens with 'Drowning Sand' a first invitation to the journey, a subtle sound taken from his trip in Africa, where the artist has produced most of his work, and we’re on for the ride. 'Nowhere' features Canadian artist Khadijah Lopez, who paints a perfect picture of his universe. A soulful presence on top of a very Jazzy tune. Plage 84 reinvents the codes of a timeless music, 'Nowhere' doesn’t belong anywhere in time, between past, present, future.
The third track 'Open the window' is a languid piece of work. A marked rhythm with a few voice cuts and the singer Tuzeint lay his soft voice on top with finesse. This third tracks opens a window on a morning sunshine, a beautifully dynamic soul. As a producer Plage 84 insists on his eclectic universe and 'Anyway I’m fine' is a testament to that ethos, a rush of post-rock electrifying the EP.
The final track 'Rainbow Hair' finishes the journey, featuring Bristish artist Femi Jaye, bringing a unique touch of hip hop on a futurist production.
'Was It Real' is released 15 June 2018 via Roche Musique
