RICHTANNER & Jerry C – On the Floor
"This amapiano remix of Lambada/On the Floor by Richtanner and Jerry C was recently released through Up. Records and I instantly fell in love with it. It takes me right back to my childhood where we would listen to Lambada everytime we got together with other friends and families. The lower pitched vocals and the amapiano beat are a match made in heaven and the perfect soundtrack for upcoming summer nights."
Myst Milano – No Shade
"I only found out about Myst Milano a few weeks ago while doing research for 365 Fe*male MCs. They are a Toronto-based DJ, producer and performer and they released their debut-album “Shapeshyfter” in 2021. „No Shade“ is an empowering hiphouse song for those who don’t let themselves be shaded by other people. A song that you listen to when you get ready for the party."
ones – blessings
"This song popped up in my „Discover Weekly“-Mix on Spotify and I’m very glad it did. Ones is an anonymous artist whose debut single centers around mental health and the repercussions of being isolated for a longer time. Something we can all relate to after 3 years of being in a pandemic. “Blessings” is a dark electronic song with such an intense atmosphere that suits the theme of the song perfectly well."
Amber Mark – Bubbles
"Being an Amber Mark fan since the release her EP “3:33am”, I was eagerly awaiting her debut album „Three Dimensions Deep“ – and the wait was worth it. „Bubbles“ is a catchy pop-song that deals with how sometimes you don’t want to face your emotions and thoughts but just want to be distracted and dance your problems off. Telling yourself that you’re doing alright while knowing you’re not, just for this one night."
SOSA, Haiyti, Sly Alone – Moon
"This song is part of SOSA’S recently released EP “B2PI2”. To fellow DJs and producers, no introduction of SOSA is needed. He is a Berlin-based DJ and producer and creatively combines African and European rhythms and beats. On this UK Garage inspired track, he invited Germans finest female rapper Haiyti and newcomer Sly Alone to provide the vocals and the result is a summer banger that makes you wanna hang outside until the sun goes down."
