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.

Feiertag is the alter ego of Dutch drummer and producer Joris Feiertag. His new single ‘Run Away (ft. Pip Millett)’ marks the first release from his forthcoming EP, to be released via Majestic Casual Records.
Feiertag has been making his mark, having played festivals including PITCH, Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), Eurosonic and Down The Rabbit Hole. He has also released music on labels such as Kraak & Smaak’s imprint Boogie Angst, Kitsuné, Sasha’s ‘Last Night On Earth’, SVNSET Waves and Mike Mago’s ‘BMKLTSCH Records’.
With a sound that can be described as electronic yet warm, with a preference for innovative syncopated rhythms and poppy melodies with the help of unique vocal features, Feiertag has garnered support from leading international taste makers including KCRW, Pete Tong, Dancing Astronaut, Discobelle, Stereofox, Mixmag, We Plug Good Music and Trndmusik among others.
Enlisting the soulful and sultry vocal talents of UK based Pip Millett, 'Run Away' takes the listener on a journey through a syncopated soundscape driven by the narrative of standing strong in the face of adversity.
‘Pip's unique sound worked perfectly with the instrumental I created and formed this song effortlessly. The vibe of the track resembles the relaxed collaboration that came forth from Pip's unique vocals and my melodic instrumental. First time working with Pip generated an instant response and I can't wait to share this with all of you.’ - Feiertag

- The Prams are Jesse and Alta Keller, a husband-wife duo from Minneapolis.
- Hi-Fi Cali is a side project of Chris Bartels' Bora York, and he's been exploring different ideas of how to really differentiate the two projects - and featuring and collaborating with other artists and singers for Hi-Fi Cali singles is one way that's been happening.
- The Prams have been releasing a song every month this year - this is August's release.
- Hi-Fi Cali started essentially as an accident - a few random electro songs had been written, and when Bora York was unable to play a live show invite, Chris and drummer Bjorn played these few songs and a couple others, and turned it into a full-on project, experimenting and trying new things with every live show and in the studio with each single.
With a recent release on Toolroom, Olsen's new single is a collaboration with Boswell (Defected) on vocals and Third Floor
WNDR has revealed his new single, ‘Let It Out’ ft. vocals from rising UK R&B artist Jordan King.
The single further showcases WNDR’s production prowess, following the release of his previous tracks ‘Human’ and ‘Medicine’ (the latter having achieved over 3.85 million streams on Spotify).
Already known as ‘the producer’s producer’, WNDR is far from a regular up-and-coming electronic artist. At just 26, he’s already got a decade of solid production work under his belt, and the last two years have seen him carving his own niche in the Norwegian club scene - from heavy 808 drum patterns and intuitive bass lines, to his unique chord progressions and instantly memorable top lines. Fellow musicians and producers already hold his artisanship in high regard; but you do not need to be a music ‘geek’ to recognise the skill in his craft.
Jordan King shook up the UK R&B scene in 2016 with his debut EP ‘The Night Shift’, described as an “R&B nugget of gold” by MTV’s The Wrap UP. King has begun to build a solid following in the UK, US, and now Europe after his first sold out international tour in the Netherlands in May. His silky smooth vocals coupled with WNDR’s rock solid production make ‘Let It Out’ an instant pop classic.
WNDR said: “‘Let It Out’ is me showing off my style as the versatile genre bending club music producer I am. Think of urban hard hitting affiliations, meets 4-to-the-floor club music"
For those who grew up with him there is no surprise WNDR turned out to be a musician. He had spent 10,000 hours in front of his DJ set-up before he had turned 13. Before high school was over, he had spent an additional 10,000 hours on music production. Labelled a serious talent early on, he could very well have been a household name by now, but WNDR has stuck to his own vision, creating music solely on his own premises.
New Zealand born, Sydney based Wallace is back with another gem in "Black Lake". Co-written with Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe), the track is a love song laced with melancholy, which pushes the future-soul singer far out of her thematic comfort zone.
Based around a marimba-led melodic riff (harking back to her steel drum driven single " Raffled Roses "), "Black Lake" brings a dynamic, cinematic side to Wallace's usually upbeat soul sound. Live drums and soaring strings battle with gentle lulls and her exquisite, unique vocal - harking a wonderful growth and dexterity of genre for the jazz trained singer.
""Black Lake" attempts to capture the thoughts of someone who is in love and ready to commit to a person who isn't. After finishing the tune, I was re-watching one of my favourite comedies, The Mighty Boosh, and realised with all the water imagery we'd weaved into our story, we'd accidentally written the song from the point of view of Old Gregg. We hadn't landed on a title at this point so I suggested Black Lake, the home of the Baileys drinking, watercolour painting man himself." - Wallace
Wallace pushes with more of her quality brand of soul music, referencing the best parts of multiple genres to create an enticing sound that is irresistibly smooth, and possessing of a sophisticated sultriness.
Debut EP out October 13th. Tour info below
THE STORY SO FAR
New Zealand has been a strong breeding ground for neo-soul artists over the years, with names like Kimbra, Electric Wire Hustle, and Fat Freddy's Drop all gaining international acclaim. With all that rich history filling her veins, the now Sydney-based Kiwi might just be the next in line to find success.
Wallace is a refreshing talent, whose music is a mosaic of jazz, blues, hip-hop and soul. Her trademark jazz-influenced, soulful vocal and magnetic presence are a marker of a dynamic artist who vibrantly creates music which showcases her absorbing vocals and clever songwriting. Her lyrics are often influenced by literature, evident through the intricate wordplay she weaves to create poignant stories.
Her talents have seen her working with Dutch legends Kraak & Smaak , Australian hip-hop staples Thundamentals , touring and creating with young Zambian born, Australian-based rapper Sampa The Great , laying vocals over beats by Adventures of Godriguez , and working closely with producer Simon Cohen (producer of Justin Bieber's global #1 Song “Love Yourself”).
Wallace has toured with Little Simz (UK), Lemaitre (NOR), Ngaiire, The Kite String Tangle, Kllo, as well playing to crowds at Australian festivals such as Listen Out Festival, Lost Paradise, St Kilda Fest, Hills Are Alive & Bigsound, to name a few.
“Get To Know Ya” is the culmination of TyC’s diverse experience in the music industry. A multi-instrumentalist at heart, he combines his unique pop sensibilities with a fresh electronic aesthetic. He wrote the song in New York before he moved to LA, and features his good friend from Berklee who is going by the surname, Nerose. Overtop the drop, he employs vocoder laden overdubs in conversation with hi-fi tribal sounds that captures his unique take on the modern pop sound! He wrote, sang, produced and mixed the record himself and is excited to premiere the single on August 11th!
Sydney band Left. have released their new single “Thank Me Later” today. The song is a heartfelt apology for giving up on a relationship.
Rinsed in nostalgic synths,Thank Me Later is an anthemic single with howling vocals delays and an 80’s tinged rhythmic drive.
The electronic pop duo is made up of singer Sarah Corry and guitarist/producer Jono Graham, and they’ve joined forces with producer Cam Parkin to create a powerful, intricate ballad.
Left. work closely with One Day talents Adit Gauchan (Horrorshow) and Spit Syndicate on their projects, with Jono touring with Spit Syndicate currently.
“It’s been almost a year since our last single, but we’ve been busy working on a new EP. With a new member of the team, Cam Parkin, we’ve lifted our game and finessed ideas a lot more at the pro- duction level. We’re really excited for people to hear this song, and the rest of the work we’ve been hibernating over,” says Sarah.
With a couple of releases under their belt,“Thank Me Later” is the first single off their upcoming EP “Stay/Go”, to be released in Spring 2017. The EP is a bit of a ‘Sliding Doors’ concept, exploring the repercussions of making one seemingly small decision.
Left. have clocked up over a million plays of their catalogue on Spotify, with standout “No Way” re- ceiving 400,000 plays and enjoying viral success on the AU Viral 50 playlist when released. Last year they were Triple J Unearthed Feature Artist in June and were played across Triple J and Unearthed as well as local radio RRR and FBi.

Norwegian dream team:
GRAMMY nominated, COUCHERON

+ over 20 million streams across streaming platforms

+ previous tracks, "Loud" and "Barely Floating" hit top of the HypeMachine overall charts
"Having already provided the production behind the wonderful "Childhood Dreams", Coucheron has teamed up with fellow Norwegian ARY once more on a brand new single.
"High By The Riverside" is very much the sound of 21st century dance pop; 808s blare across the track, with Coucheron adding an array of speaker-bouncing synths sounds, and adding plenty of drops for good measure.
And then there's the voice of ARY. While her vocals are occasionally given some pitch-bending treatment by Coucheron, the singer is allowed to give her lightest pop vocal to date and it perfectly suits the song's summery vibes.
"I’ve been fortunate to work a lot with ARY this past year, mostly on her stufff," Coucheron tells us. "But in this case we both felt this would be a song for me. I immediately bonded with the storytelling in this song, and felt it belonged in my universe, so I did my best to compliment her beautiful vocals."
"High By The Riverside" is available via Toothfairy." - The Line of Best Fit
