Los Angeles based Taste-maker music site Daily Unsigned is celebrating 7 years of leading the way identifying the greatest new bands as a part of founder Rob Figarola’s unending quest to single out the best unsigned talent out there.

“I started DAILY UNSIGNED in June 2010 with the goal to discover and feature unsigned artists that I loved and believed in. 7 years later, I never imagined that 200+ of our 800+ alumni members would secure record and publishing deals and sell a combined 100+ million singles as well as garnering 10 Grammy Awards” – Founder, Rob Figarola.

Originally an accountant by trade, Figarola’s childhood love of Top 40 music that led him to working to elevate the local music scene as an escape from the pressures of a senior financial analyst position with an East Coast Fortune 500 Company; Figarola’s first entry into the music industry was in
1994 when he launched Urban Squirrel Records, where he signed Indie and Alt-Rock bands up and down the East Coast from 1994-1999. Following a break from the industry, in 2004, he launched Restless Management where he developed his expertise in music consulting and artist management through 2012. He has worked as an A&R specialist for both Wind-Up Records and A&M/Octone Records and is currently writing for multiple music news outlets.

“I believe people want listening music – even on the dancefloor!”

Aleksander Vinter, the Norwegian artist who in the last 7 years has released over 20 recordings under different project titles like Savant, Vinter In Hollywood, and Blanco to name a few, is best known dance-music culture’s most unpredictable, impossible-to-pigeonhole enigma. With releases as diverse as they are experimental, that reputation has remained constant and well earned throughout a madly prolific career spanning numerous singles, remixes, nominations for Norwegian Grammys, and 11 (!) full-length albums.

On the one hand, Savant deploys the kind of speaker-shredding bangers that have made him one of dance music’s most popular rising stars: his dynamic live set drives crowds at mega-festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival into abandon, yet Savant refuses to conform to EDM genre demarcations – or any, for that matter.

“‘Electronic Dance Music’ is the most generic term, which doesn’t apply to what I do,” Vinter explains of the sound he’s dubbed “complextro.” “It’s all about putting everything into one pot of musical ether. I don’t have a rigid formula; my music manages to be comfortable and uncomfortable at the same time. I like breaking rules – that’s where new stuff emerges.” Indeed, this is not your grandmother’s moombahton: 8-bit videogame soundtracks, trap, disco, house, electro, classical, ‘90s big-beat electronica – even ‘70s glam rock and ‘80s new wave finds its way into his sonic odysseys. “I like how a group like Queen is very theatrical and harmonized,” Vinter says. “That epic feeling, plus the style of David Bowie, and the spunk of Prince – that’s what I’m going for, but via dance music.

His fan base is as religious as his music is diverse. His live act is a live interactive set of music of his own creation, peppered with favorites, that never repeats from show to show. Each show it truly unique but tied together by his tendency to share his newest music with his fans. Savant wants to create the same feelings that early DJ’s would evoke on their dance floors, that feeling of discovery and seeding the question, “WHAT SONG WAS THAT!? I NEED TO HAVE IT.”

Bubbles Erotica Release Official Video for “Cicada Arcade” off Upcoming, Self-Titled Debut Album

Chicago based, alternative rock band Bubbles Erotica has released the Official Music Video for “Cicada Arcade,” the lead single off of their debut, eponymous album, due out 5/9/2017. Originally premiered on Tattoo.com, “Cicada Arcade” was directed by Ali Manesh at 3E Visuals.

“Cicada Arcade” speaks to the culture of social media we live in today. A lot of people talking and making noise, but not listening or paying attention to the world around them. It’s a very me-first frame of mind, with everyone believing that their ideas and opinions are more important than everyone else’s. Our animator, Ali at 3E Visuals took that idea further with his visual interpretation of our lyrics.Bubbles Erotica

it’s about wanting to get away from the constant noise and distractions that everyone is making in order to create and project their own false realities. And none of the false realities that are being thrown out there are original or unique, but are just based on recycled thoughts and beliefs that are being fed to them. Then the main character goes through a thought process that eventually ends up with him recognizing that he’s not any different and his own existence and reality is based on those very same noises an distractions. But as he’s coming to this realization, it’s too late as he’s actually fully immersed and drowning in the waste from his own false reality.Ali Manesh3E Visuals

Bubbles Erotica formed in 2010 when members Phillip Hasso, Bradley Springer, Michael Hasso, and Colin Stone came together to bring something new to the Rock genre. As you will hear in “Cicada Arcade”, Bubbles Erotica is doing exactly what they set out to do, unleashing a bold sound that is tastefully unique; leaving you with an insatiable craving for more.Tattoo.com

Bubbles Erotica will be hosting a double release show with Killing Gods on May 6th at Bottom Lounge in Chicago. Click HERE for more information!

Earbutter set the tone with his first dubstep release on UltraGore with WeBang. “All Up In That” which broke the Top 10 on Beatport within the first week of its release. In 2016 BWA and Kevin Gates commissioned Earbutter to officially remix his hit single “La Familia” from Kevin’s Islah album, which received support from many A List artists in the Hip Hop and EDM scene’s.

Future unsigned EP’s feature an array of up and coming EDM producers, platinum rap artists, and classic reggae mc’s.

Earbutter is a true blue blooded DJ that developed his turntablist techniques around Klever (Yelawolf’s DJ), Immortal (Scratch Miami), Shotgun (Goodie Mob), Lord (Public Enemy), and other champion DJs. As this skill matured, his talents led to wins and placements at battles including DMC, Guitar Center, DMA Magazine, Kool Mixx, Rane’s Drop The Needle on the Record; Earbutter is also the only DJ to win Club Lavela’s DJ Battle three years in a row. His unique sound, coupled with top shelf features, has filled a void in the EDM realm mixing turntablism, rap, and reggae with the trap, house, and dubstep genres.

Earbutter has shared the stage and toured with some of the largest names in commercial and underground music, as well as EDM artists in his seasoned career as a rapper, DJ, and producer. Earbutter has done many stateside and international tours in these respected genres under his current and previous aliases in places like Australia, Costa Rica, Europe, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, and many others. His live show can only be described as one of the most live combinations of live vocals, turntablism, and all original tracks selection from him self and other top artists from which he procures exclusive, unreleased content.
