Roman Zayats Release Of ‘Cold’ Is Combating The January Blues

 

 

Drawing from a huge range of influences makes Romans music varied and original, and with the hope of new artists featuring on the next few releases, 2018 is looking to be working in Romans favor.

The single itself can be seen as a homage to all great techno, dance and house acts, including Depeche Mode, Deadmau5 and Skrillex, however, as Romans upbringing was in St Petersburg, Russia, home of some of classical music’s greatest composers, it was destined for him to include aspects from musical history into his work.

 

The track is a great piece, and with many surprises yet to be unveiled, you can assure yourself it would be a good idea to stay tuned for whats coming.

Nej!Las have supplied us with the much welcomed assurance that house music is making a comeback. Their heavy techno sound demonstrated in their two-track EP, with Washout and Fini, becomes entrancing, the more you listen the more you get sucked into the futuristic, cyber world they create. These are exactly the tracks clubs need to get everyone moving.

 

The artist and producer spent time in Detroit and Chicago, taking some obvious and making it their own. Some of the influences include: Flying Lotus; Boards of Canada, Thomas Bangalter, John Carpenter and tomandandy. All combined to make a techno beat that keeps you on your toes, taking you with the ebbing flow of the music

 

Even beyond the music, Nej!Las isn’t your everyday artist, founding her own charity which has already delivered $2.5 million aid across devastated areas of the Middle East, as well as creating her music in eight different cities across two countries. She goes above and beyond what would be expected of her. But what would you expect from this mysterious yet thrilling electro genius?

Modiwo’s Uplifting Dream Pop from Darkest Transylvania

Confounding expectations, Modiwo have emerged from the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains to become one of the country’s breakout musical success stories, whilst also giving their time to support charity projects around the world. Initially forming in order to provide entertainment for local orphanages and retirement projects, demand for the band’s music grew to such a scale that they agreed to become a band in their own right.

Joining together musical forces from Romania, Ukraine, Moldova and Hungary, their unique anthemic dream-pop sound is embellished in their live shows with alpine horns, didgeridoos, and shakuhachi solos. Their latest track, “Never Give Up”, is an achingly blissful pillow of sunshine which brings to mind all the dreamiest elements of The Beloved.

Watch the video to Never Give Up here:

As well as conquering their homeland with their music, they are currently involved with a charity called Fruit Fusion, where audiences attending their gigs will pay with fruit rather than money, the proceeds then being donated to local orphanages, in conjunction with The Bureau of Children’s’ Rights Protection. An average show can deliver up to 700kg of fruit to those most deserving. Modiwo carry this healthy living ethos through to their own lifestyles and into their music, promoting yoga and meditation as well as using their music as a form of relaxation therapy.

The Korvids set to release self-titled album

The Korvids is the musical vehicle of Gordy Goudie and James Grant, the latter of whom you may recognise from 80s band, Love and Money, the ‘group who never were.’

Championing a retro sound based on the ethics of funk, soul and disco, The Korvids are creating an up-to-date form of an older sound that many will be glad to see come round again. ‘Bad Faith’ from the Korvids new self-title album exhibits a catchy dance-floor groover that those of the slightly older generation are sure to appreciate. However, it would be rude to insinuate that their music is simply for older people, as this is not the case. Within the new album, the Korvids express an experimental side too, exploring a number of electronic soundscapes that may just appeal to younger listeners.

After the success of their debut release ‘Beach Coma’, which was picked up by Sirius US radio and remixed by Balaeric legend Jose Padilla, the duo released ‘Bad Faith’, a beauteous cut of late 70s disco remixed by Love and Money and Steely Dan’s producer, Gary Katz.

The Korvids is out 28th April.

Track Review: Ginny Vee’s ‘Give Me Dynamite’

Italian born singer, Ginny Vee, has recently released her club-banger ‘Give Me Dynamite’ and its exactly the kind of track that gets people moving, as well as singing along.

With a distinct euro-house vibe and some crystal clear vocals on Ginny’s part, ‘Give Me Dynamite’ is the perfect anthem to your summer. But in the meanwhile, you can use it to get you through those dark, dreary winter days.

A highlight of the track is the quintessentially house-esque keys that come in just before the chorus with their groove-heavy chord structure, whilst the beat is sure to keep you moving all night long.

The lyrics are simple, but sometimes this is best – especially for a track of this genre. It allows the quality of production and the actual music to shine through, whilst still exhibiting Ginny’s unique voice.

Not only this, but there’s a certain je ne sais quoi to the track that gives it a super-feel-good vibe unlike anything else from this genre. The upbeat single was arranged by Steve Manovski (co producer and co writer of Sigala’s hit single ‘Give Me Your Love’) and it was recently taken to the Amsterdam Dance Event where it was unsurprisingly snapped quickly up by Disco:Wax (Sony).

Whilst Ginny may have struck the big time with ‘Give Me Dynamite’, at times it has been a tough road for the singer. Her family often suggested that she “get a secure job” any time she spoke of a career in music. Consequently, Vee attended law school but she soon left to follow her passion and joined a creative arts school. She then worked as a model and travelled to LA where she pursued an acting career, working on set with Michael Rooker. However Ginny’s passion was always singing and the cover group Belle Ma Belle was formed where she has worked alongside some of the biggest names in the Italian music industry. After a few years she made the break from the group and headed in her own direction.
