Moorhouse: “I Love You to the Moon and Back” ft. The Cellophane Heart – brings a new slant to the genre

Irish DJ and producer Moorhouse has dedicated the song, “I Love You to the Moon and Back”, to his daughter, Abbie. It speaks about their relationship and what the future holds. Canadian artist, The Cellophane Heart, provided the vocals for the track, and the song was produced in Moorhouse’s home studio in Waterford, Ireland. The track offers a lively, upbeat 90s dance pop sound mixed with current top 40 influences from Baz Luhrmann and N-Trance. This track means a lot. And there is a reason for that. Sure, it may be electronic dance music, but it’s…different. EDM music is becoming

Ken Eagle and Michele Akers discovered each other’s musical abilities after meeting at a dance in May 2014 and formed a duo in late October of the same year.

KonQuestNow: “NOP (No One’s Perfect)” ft. STP & J.Morgan – an assemblage of uncanny language

The preconceived notions of what a KonQuestNow (VerseBorn & Wreck The Rebel) track is going to be like are plentiful well before you even press play. This has been a boon to their career, in what has become a viral habit of either hating or loving something based almost solely on your own personal internet culture and what your daily feed prompts you to feel about a certain subject. The collective’s name has become synonymous with great lyrics, superb beats, and originality. On their latest track “NOP (No One’s Perfect)”,  produced by Wreck The Rebel, featuring  STP & J.Morgan,  KonQuestNow

Stori Brooks: “Parachutes” – a potential for greatness

Stori Brooks has been a lot of things in her career: producer, poet, conflicted rapper, scenic storyteller. While her versatility keeps her afloat, it’s tough to get a bead on exactly who Brooks is and what she stands for—is she the conscious backpacker or the straight-talking street girl? She embodies the urban alternative, and she’s working on an album, to be entitled, “EVERYTHING IS GR8”, that offers her full narrative. The first single, “Parachutes”, taken off the upcoming album offers insight into her essence, finding the rapper at her most reflective. Maybe she’s assessing her current status and how she

Samantha Bouquin: “Contemplations on Solitude and Strings” – highly expressive

Connoisseurs of experimental or avant-garde chamber music may already know of Samantha Bouquin’s inventive and entrancing sounds. This is music of great integrity, startling vitality, and striking originality, yet it is virtually unknown outside the cult following that has appreciated these ingenious compositions. A cross between homespun classical populism and the sophisticated experimentation of the avant-garde, Bouquin’s music follows in the iconoclastic tradition of forward thinking composers, but with its own frank expression, exuberance, and wayward charm; yet it is also accessible to the casual listener in the directness of its material and the clarity of its techniques, no matter

NAUREA: “Sugar Sun” – an all-inclusive artistic brain!

Olimann, the mind behind the NAUREA project has an all-inclusive artistic brain – from electro, techno and house, to post-industrial rock, he says that anything is possible within the framework of his creativity. An architect, graphic designer, writer, and ex-guitarist in a number of bands since 1991, Olimann now usually works alone in his small studio, manufacturing all the essentials that make up the chaotic NAUREA package, from the music to the graphics. Releasing its debut production in 2012, the project has just dropped its latest 10 track album, entitled “New Zombie Generation”. True to his unorthodox ideas in all avenues of his art, the album is full of social observation and shock but with a witty slant.

From the album comes the lead single, “Sugar Sun”, filled with all the manic grit NAUREA can manage, bringing all the familiarity his fans will yearn for, and the band sounds great: delivering sludgy, energetic industrial rock. But it’s one of those records that also deliver more depth to the experience than you were expecting. More real music than just the inescapable feeling that experimentation was the focal point here rather than actual structure and focus. In other words if you were expecting only gimmicky visuals backed by a whole lot of chaotic noise, think again.

Olimann, aka NAUREA, has a thinking mind, which means no incoherent mesh of random ideas. On the album he takes a hard critical look at our modern, wired up and networking society, leaving no stone unturned. Even the song titles give you an idea of where his train of thought is headed – “Fast Food Is The New Religion” and “Game Addicted”, being just two shiny examples. “Sugar Sun” however, will audibly assault you relentlessly, and it’s one of the catchiest songs on the album I still think. ‘Abrasive, raw, yet complex and catchy’, is not a mix of words that ever find themselves grouped together nicely, yet in this case they find themselves quite uncomfortably comfortable in describing the deranged organized frenzy delivered via “Sugar Sun”.

Of course more flipped out hysteria can be gained from watching the supporting video clip of the song. In a way, one could almost say that NAUREA writes very visual songs, because his sonic madness always begs to be seen. And of course he obliges with a whole series of videos available for viewing on his YouTube channel. Pure freaky brilliant genius, NAUREA is a mix of Nine Inch Nails, Rob Zombie and Static-X. If you are treading the darker side of industrial with an abstract left-field flair, stop here for some influence!
