Free Free Dom Dom Release ‘Be’ EP via Bishops Bloc Records

Berlin indie dance duo Free Free Dom Dom have crafted a swirling twirling future pop masterpiece that has you hitting repeat to no end. Lead singer Little Voice reminds us that nobody is telling this girl who or what she can “be” while partner Phil backs her up vocally and instrumentally in all the right places. Midway through the song things take a darker turn and this is exactly where Fear The Priest’s industrial tinged gothic techno remix takes off. Start your day off with the original and start your night off with the remix because this release has moods for all occasions.

Free Free Dom Dom is a Berlin-based duet formed by Little Voice and Philippe Duval, 2 years ago. Their indie dance distills pure melodic energy with a strong message. “We are free to be whoever we want to be.” Their new track “Be” offers an interesting perspective on the subject. Why should we follow all the rules dictated by society when we can sense those rules are not good for us ? “Be” states we shouldn’t let anyone tell us “what to be”.
Little Voice is also known as Laetitia Duveau, the art curator who runs the online platform Curated By Girls, giving a voice to visual arts related to diversity, equality and softness.

PELUSSJE’s Inventive Future Beats Collide With Hypnotic Vocals From Josh Money

Originally premiered on Your EDM, “Collide” is out NOW on Nameless Records / Universal Music Italia.

“Collide” is a mish mash of bubbly synths and crooning vocals, courtesy of Josh Money, all combined in a future beats package reminiscent of some of our favorite producers from down under.

Pelussje, a.k.a. James Nayler & Chiara Benelli are two Italian bass music producers and DJs born in 2004 in flaming walls of sound, burning screams and fiery stage divings. After a period of circuit bending and underground live based shows, they decided to bring back to the ring their deep love of mixer and turntables.

In the ensuing years their productions turned to more sophisticated and club-oriented mood, colored by massive basslines and the full flavor of their musical roots. Their music evolved into a more refined and mature sound, reflecting the deep upstream artistic growth that brought them to catch the attention of one of the most important tastemakers in the industry like Owsla.

Pelussje built a significant global reputation through touring Europe, North America, South Africa, Taiwan, South Korea, Mexico and Brazil, sharing the stage with such major acts as Skrillex, Crookers, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, Congorock, Boys Noize, SebastiAn, and Zomboy.

Their dynamic and eclectic music has been released with many of the most important, international labels including ULTRA, Universal, Sony, EMI, and Nest / Owsla, receiving support from such big names as Skrillex, The Bloody Beetroots, Steve Aoki, Benny Benassi, Congorock, Joachim Garraud and many more.

Pelussje’s consistently visually stunning videos conquered the YouTube world, presenting diverse imagery, particularly with their latest videos “Salsoul Nugget If U Wanna” and “Love Is You”, off of their Salsoul & West End Remixed Vol.5 EP on ULTRA, which received high praise from not only the internet community, but Rolling Stone and MTV Clubland. They’ve been also nominated for Best New Generation Electro at the prestigious MTV Digital Days 2014 (Italy).

Premiered on The Music Ninja, “United States Of Anxiety (Mr. Kristopher Remix)” will be featured on the United States Of Anxiety Remixes EP, due out mid-September.

I structured this remix so that it feels like you’re listening to the sounds of someone’s anxiety fluctuating. I loved this remix because it pushed my boundaries of what I could do with my music!Mr. Kristopher

Download FREE Mr. Kristopher’s Cover of “Sweet Dreams” With Skylar Stecker:

“Recreating Sweet Dreams has actually been a “sweet dream” of mine for years now. I wanted to pay homage to the Eurythmics & Marilyn Manson, but at the same time add the dark Mr. Kristopher flair to it without disrespecting these legendary musicians. For the first part of this official remix I recreated the famous melody from the original Eurythmics sweet dreams, for the next part of the song I pulled out a guitar and actually recorded Marilyn Manson’s heavy bridge section, and then transition all of these parts into my signature sounds, all while using the Skylar Stecker’s vocals that were sent to me! I recently learned that sweet dreams are made of this, who am I to disagree? 🙂Mr. Kristopher

cyberpunkers feel the disco ep

Electronic Masked duo CYBERPUNKERS prove once again that they’re the masters of mixing it up with the release of their Feel The Disco EP. Released on Big Fish Records, Feel The Disco is a high energy, 2 track Electro-House / Bass-House banger featuring throbbing basslines, distorted samples, and glitchy synths that are guaranteed to push any dancefloor into overdrive!

Buy CYBERPUNKERS Feel The Disco On Beatport
The “Cyberpunkers” project is the child, born in 2006, of the passion for Cyberpunk culture of two young Italian DJ’s. The format aims at giving a fresh start to this style. In a nutshell, a transposition of the Cyberpunk world in modern clubbing. Through several performances at famous clubs, “Cyberpunkers” drew lots of interest and ended up being much taked about for both their original look, made of masks behind which their true identity is hidden, and for the originality of their shows, which are marked out by the use of two consoles at once and powered by several audio machines. Cyberpunkers shared the stage of the biggest electronic European festivals with such worldwide stars. Such a tight schedule did not prevent them from doing a lot of important singles and remixes.

D. FRANCISCO Releases Modern Dance / Opera / Pop Fusion Single & Music Video “I Want Ya”

D.Francisco_I want Ya_Single_cover_Final

Multi-Genre Singer / Songwriter D. FRANCISCO is setting to explode onto the Pop / Dance Scene with his debut single and music video, “I Want Ya”. Melding classical operatic vocal styling with upbeat Latin-Pop Lyrics and a modern dance energy, this ebullient track recalls the vibrance of the 1999 Latin-Pop explosion led by Ricky Martin and Julio Iglesias, with an elegant twist reminiscent of Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli.

 

The Latin-Pop explosion of the late 90’s was a solid shot-in-the-arm for audiences all over. This eclectic and energetic genre was finally getting it’s due, thanks in part to artists like Ricky Martin and Julio Iglesias. Fast forward to 2016, and we present to you D. FRANCISCO and his new single “I Want Ya”. It has all of the dance energy of the best Latin-Pop, but also incorporates twists reminiscent of more classical artists such as Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli.

While so many new artists create much hype yet have little substance to back it up, D. FRANCISCO has spent a lifetime perfecting his craft behind-the-scenes. His background consists of years of diligent training; starting with private instrumental lessons, moving to touring internationally with the celebrated Phoenix Boys Choir, and culminating with an opera internship in Rome, Italy.

Using these skills as a solid foundation, he has turned his attention to making his own music, with his own twist. Not limited to any one genre, D. FRANCISCO pulls from Pop, Latin, Opera, and even elements of EDM. It’s all about the song and whatever fits. For his debut single, he’s pulling out all of the stops – “I Want Ya” jukes & jives, and overall has an arc of prolific musicianship that spans front to back! Plus, but he’s also dropping versions in both English and Spanish!

The “I Want Ya” music video is a sizzling number that heats up quick, and burns hot until the very end. It’s set in a darkened club with a group of high rollers seated around a small table, and they’re playing a very big game of poker. Chips and dollars abound – it’s clear that the stakes are high. As D. FRANCISCO and his band light up the stage, a buxom new participant, dressed in all white, enters the match: Ana Carla Sinclair. Known as a contestant on The Voice Mexico, she takes a seat, portraying quite the foil to the sultry hostess and attending waitress, dressed in a sizzling black and red outfit, played by renowned dancer Nayara Nuñez.

As the action ensues, a coy game of eye contact and knowing glances are exchanged by D. FRANCISCO, Nayara, and Ana, although it’s unclear exactly who is on which side. Eventually, Ana runs the table with the supposed “pros” while Nayara explodes onstage with her brilliant dance. Though she may have a furtive plan in place, D. FRANCISCO discreetly disarms her, and executes a plan of his own on the way out the door!

Multi-genre singer/songwriter D. FRANCISCO is a true artist who has successfully melded old-world charm with vivacious Latin-Pop. As opposed to the trend-driven experiences of most artists his age, D. FRANCISCO has honed his craft through years of diligent training and commitment. From his early instrumental lessons and exposure to opera and symphony; through touring with the celebrated Phoenix Boys Choir; private and undergraduate vocal studies culminating in an opera internship in Rome, Italy; and finally additional vocal training with the eminent Seth Riggs, D. FRANCISCO has created a proficient foundation that is reflected in his stunning and unique merging of Operatic-Pop, Latin-Pop, and EDM.

In Italian there is a saying, “Si canta como si parla,” roughly meaning that one sings as one speaks, and singing is to speaking what running is to walking – it’s heightened, more intense. So my goal as an artist is to convey the human condition in all its different facets, and engage the audience in the process. It’s a journey I lead them on, so to speak, which is a manifestation of our mutual humanity, expressed in the universal language of music. Ultimately and thankfully, life is festive. Let’s celebrate it together, along with all the trials & tribulations, the joys & the heartbreaks we’ve encountered along the way.D FRANCISCO
