77% of students are bullied mentally, verbally, & physically. Cyberbullying statistics are rapidly approaching similar numbers, with 43% experiencing cyberbullying…
The anticipation for Gareth Emery and Standerwick’s trance single, “Saving Light” landed for release by Monstercat, has created a lot of commotion since EDC Las Vegas ’16 when Gareth teased it to thousands. The emotional lyrics sung by HAILENE paired with the upbeat tempo of Gareth’s signature trance and dance heavy tempo brings more to the table than just a beautifully built song. “Saving Light” is also bringing the, too close to home, issue of bullying to light with a philanthropic effort.
No more disempowerment. No more prejudice. No more bullying. – Ditch the Label
Until March 1st, 100% of all profits made by both artists and the label via sales and streaming revenue will be donated to the Anti Bullying group Ditch The Label. On top of the proceeds, Monstercat will also be pushing a donation drive to the charity throughout the campaign. To give back visit Monstercat’s call to action page here.
Prepare your feels, PHIL GOOD‘s “Growing Up” is here to shake up your emotions in a big way. Songs that tell a story always hit a bit your heart a bit harder than ones that don’t and this is one that does that and so much more.
“Growing Up” portrays something a lot of us have gone through, if not everybody. PHIL GOOD pulls on your heart strings with every note upon an instrumental that perfectly embodies the feeling of the lyrics. Both the style of the vocal and the beat are quite unique, giving this tune a sharp edge over a lot of the indie/electronic music that is coming out. It’s one of those songs that you can’t help but to listen several times through at least. Even when you decide to move on from the song, it still pulls at you to come back to it. See for yourself where things take you by clicking that play button. Love the track? Show it your love by hearting it on Hypem.
We want whatever water the people who work over at Warner Music Norway are drinking. Nothing but magic comes out of that camp. One act that is contributing to the immensely cool catalog of tunes is JCY. The trio came out with their song “Wasting Your Time” with Alida earlier this month. The song release was not enough, as they just dished out a music video to accompany it.
The cool thing about this music video is it serves as a lyric video. Although Alida sings the lyrics with clarity and beautiful strength, the animations add a nice touch to the video and serve to further cement the words in your brain. No doubt you’ll be singing along just as we have. JCY’s future bass instrumental is purely awesome. It’s a tasteful tune that has energy without trying to. The same goes for the video; it’s simple and fun. If you haven’t yet, get your copy of “Wasting Your Time” today.
When a handful of “By Your Side” remixes came across the internet, we thought that was the end of it. However, Jonas Blue couldn’t get enough, so now we have two more remixes to his hit collaboration with RAYE. One we get from Sonny Fodera and the other from Billon.
Sonny’s remix showcases a proper understanding of what it takes to put together a smashing house record. From the minimalist grooves to the overall pacing to the crisp nature of the percussion, Sonny checked any and all boxes we could come up with. We thought things couldn’t get any better, then Billon’s take on “By Your Side” blew us away. It’s intro is a bit less playful than Sonny’s, but the chorus is much more so. Both are great tracks; evenly worthy of a full listen through. You won’t regret it.
Oslo’s Future Duper duo have been known for their remixes, but today we get to show you their first original through Warner Music called “Fever.” Featuring the wonderful vocalist Hilde, “Fever” is a magnificent fusion of pop and future, something that seems to be happening more and more so exponentially lately.
Although they only launched this project not even a whole year ago, Future Duper have swayed listener with every single release. An original was something that fans have been aching for and “Fever” should satisfy their desires. The duo are open fans of Illenium and San Holo, and that influence comes out in this track, however these two Norwegians stand out with their own signature sound. We’re loving what we’re hearing and can’t wait for more original work. We still love the remixes, but originals will tickle us too.
