Chances are when you were sixteen you weren’t signed to a major label. For ZAIO, he accomplished that through Sony who’s releasing a record of his soon. For now, we have his song “As If” that dropped a few days ago. Upon listening, you’d never have guessed this kid is as young as he is.
“As If” shows off a veteran’s understanding of what makes a great house record. The single may not be absolutely revolutionary, but it is just about as solid as you can get. The catchy melodies and vocal play work hand in hand to give fans a fun listen that they can dance to with ease. We’re excited to see what else ZAIO has in store given his age, as well as the fact that he has one of the most powerful musical entities backing him. There’s a new kid on the block and he’s set to make a splash.
Known for his unique signature sound, KR$CHN is a producer you need to know, if you don’t already. He’s remixed the likes of Tove Lo and Nora En Pure and his original works stand out as incredible. Take for instance his new single “Song For Mama” that see him extending his sound into a bit of a different territory.
“Song For Mama” still has the future undertones that are found in KR$CHN’s other works, but he flips the beat so that we get some house character to the track. Throwing that deep tone to the song resulted in something really spectacular that will crossover to fans of several genres. It’s an intimate tune, as you may have guessed from the name. KR$CHN expresses strong, genuine emotions with this track; they’re something you feel every listen through no matter how many times you already have heard the song. Get a copy of it through Bandcamp today.
The triumvirate of Atu, Dpat, and Brent Faiyaz have spent the better part of the 2010’s coming into form and finding their signature styles. As some of the more prominent, talented producers in the experimental hip hop / R&B realm, Dpat and Atu both gained a fair amount of recognition among the initiated in 2013. Vocalist Faiyaz made his splash in early 2015, steadily gaining popularity since. Upon signing their allegiances with the Soulection family, both producers released dazzling, emotional projects – both still land favorably on the ever changing bulls-eye of quality music.

Keys N Krates x KRANE
We’re a bit late to the party centering around the exceptional collaboration between Keys N Krates and KRANE. Released on Dim Mak, “Right Here” is an undeniable anthem. It’s already garnered a whopping amount of love from fans and media alike.
No matter if you fall in the camp of people who have already heard it or have not, you’re going to click play anyways. It’s one of those songs you don’t mind coming back to and will even seek it out even if you just heard it five minutes ago. Separately, these acts have cooked up some memorable works, but “Right Here” is among their top creations. There’s a reason people are going wild; disregard the hype, disregard the names, “Right Here” is just an amazing musical cut that is deserving of all the recognition it has and will receive. If you haven’t, grab your copy today on iTunes.
Get your dancing shoes on, Pantheon is here with some cool grooves. The Australian producer dropped his two track EP, Robots Dance, through Unknown Records just a few short days ago. Since then we have been using it to get us through the day and now you can use it too.
Whether you’re playing it while you work, or while you party, it’s a great project. Tech house has always been a minimalist’s game, with producers utilizing a few key elements to their max capacity, which is just what Pantheon does here with a dark attitude. “Robots” comes first with an atmospheric tone to it, fully encompassing the listener in a setting set by various interweaving soundscapes. “Spaceships” is where things really take off. It’s a funkier, more outgoing song that is the knockout punch for this EP. Grab your copy of it today through the digital service of your choosing.
