Music Monday: Blanke, Plain White T’s, KT Tunstall, Daniel Ellsworth + The Great Lakes, Gianluca Vacchi, Tiffany Young, and Nicky Romero

Incorporating glossy synths and a steadfast beat, rising Australian producer Blanke shoots Prince Fox’s “Space (feat. QuinnXCII)” into the galaxy with his melodic electro house makeover.

Pulling elements from electro house and mid-tempo bass music, Australia’s Blanke first appeared on Dim Mak this summer via his Kayoh collaboration “Supercharged” on New Noise. Shortly after, Dim Mak label boss Steve Aoki called upon Blanke for an official remix of his hit single “Pretender(feat. Lil Yachty & AJR).”

 

GRAMMY & Tony-nominated, multi-platinum alt-pop band, Plain White T’s have released the video for their single “Light Up The Room.” The visual is inspired by the 1980s entertainment and film era, as it plays on a fusion of Netflix’s Stranger Things (featuring an adult Eleven) and a supernatural Bonnie and Clyde meets Pulp Fiction.

“Light Up The Room” is one of five released tracks from the studio album, Parallel Universe. The collection is out now at all DSPs.

 

Brit Award and Ivor Novello Award-artist KT Tunstall is thrilled to announce her 6th studio album, WAX, to be released on October 5th via Rostrum Records/Virgin Records. KT has released the lead single, “The River” streaming on NPR and on BBC’s Radio 2.

KT’s 6th studio album was entirely self/co-written and is produced by Nick McCarthy, the founding member of multimillion-selling band Franz Ferdinand, with co-production from duo MyRiot (London Grammar, Birdy). WAX also features co-writing contributions from her frequent creative collaborator Martin Terefe and Kings Of Leon producer/ mentor Angelo Petraglia.

 

Nashville’s rockers, Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes new album, Fashion, is out now via Color Party Records.

Daniel Ellsworth + The Great Lakes is the sound life makes when it becomes ecstasy. It is the noise childhood makes when it surrenders to itself and becomes an ecstatic life. It is somehow simultaneously sweetness, energy, softness, and seduction. A strange alchemy that comes about in a town like Nashville — where they formed in 2010. It’s a place of internal Peter Pans. But there are a rare few who can be born from Nashville’s island of youth, insanity, and silliness only to survive and age into a continent of thirty-something honesty and humanity. DE+TGL is one of those rare few. Wise Lost Boys with a conscience, but still a thirsty, boyish spark. That is Daniel Ellsworth (lead vox, keys), Timon Lance (guitar), and Marshall Skinner (bass).

 

With previous smashes including World Cup anthem LOVE, Viento and Trump It, social media star Gianluca Vacchi has been rapidly building his newest career move as a music producer in some style. Blending a range of his musical passions in his colorful tracks, his music is very much the sound of now—and this new track is no different.

Sigamos Bailando is a collaboration with Latin pop superstar, Luis Fonsi—the voice behind the most streamed song of all time, Despacito. The track also features Yandel, a phenomenally successful Puerto Rican vocalist, songwriter, musician, and record producer. Together, they make a formidable combination, pulling together a crazed, distorted horn riff and a glorious vocal over a lilting reggaeton beat. It’s a summer anthem for sure, but one that will surely keep its momentum up into the later months too.

 

Pop phenomena, Tiffany Young, has announced the release of her highly anticipated single and music video for “Teach You.” This single effortlessly paints a vivid movie-like picture with its lyrics and the video brings that cinematic vision to life.

“It’s a theatrical piece where I was able to bring different versions of myself to all the sections of the song,” says Tiffany. The video skyrocketed to almost 500K within the first 10 hours of its release, with the single landing a #2 spot on the iTunes K-Pop Chart.

 

“Paradise” is an experimental dance-pop collaboration with Deniz Koyu and indie band Walk Off the Earth. With “Paradise” Nicky Romero continues his hot streak of notable releases.

In the past few months, he collaborated with Steve Aoki on “Be Somebody”, released “Rise” with Stadiumx, joined forces with Taio Cruz for “Me On You” and teamed up with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike for Tomorrowland-themed “Here We Go”.
