Music Monday: Big Wild, Deorro, Tyro, Haley Reinhart, Cuco & Dillon Francis, and Kim Petras

Comprised of 12 tracks, Superdream plays like a heavenly vision, with funk and disco undertones weaving their way through the greater sonic landscape-engulfing the listener instantaneously. Built for massive crowds and festival grounds, the tracks on the album are instantly addictive as wave after wave of indie-tinged electronica makes resisting the urge to dance even more futile. Superdream is an absolute triumph for Big Wild as he continues to defy the expectations of electronic music by taking risks and creating unparalleled realms of emotionally rich sound.

Superdream finds Big Wild expanding his world of sound as he crafts hills and valleys of increasingly lush production, and for the first time in his career, he’s the voice guiding the listener on their musical journey. Stell finds himself at the forefront, leading with resplendent vocals for the majority of the album – which includes previously released singles “City of Sound,” “Maker,” and”Heaven”. Furthermore, Big Wild’s penchant for crafting vibrant soundscapes is continuously on display throughout Superdream, particularly apparent in album track, “Joypunks.” Accompanying Stell on Superdream are vocalists Rationale (London, UK) and iDA HAWK (Brooklyn, US)-whose euphoric tracks on the album are shimmering highlights.

 

One listen to Deorro’s newest single “Wild Like The Wind” and it’s clear that the Mexican-American producer is poised to make massive waves in 2019. In fact, “Wild Like The Wind” is unlike any other song that Deorro has produced to date. His famed pop sound is still the essence of the music, but Deorro dives deep into his sonic palette to deliver a piece of work that’s truly exciting.   

Deorro is one of the most prolific and stylistically diverse producers in dance music. He’s constantly putting his production skills to the ultimate test by exploring multiple genres of electronic music as well as Latin and pop-influenced tracks. Releases such as “Bailar,” “Focus”, “Munequita Linda”, “Bring It Back” and “Offspring” represent Deorro’s artistic range in both production and taste.

 

“Bass Boom” feat. Boogie T was a fan favorite when it came out in 2017, so for the next 10 years of Circus Records release, we recruited talented Denver bright star Tyro who reworks the ’17 smash by Walter Wilde and P0gman to thunderous effect.

Vancouver native Walter Wilde has been weaving wild beats for SubCarbon, Firepower, and I.Am.Audio. So, you can imagine the excitement fans had when he teamed up with Wolverhampton bass wizard P0gman, whose steel beats and wobbly bass lines have helped him cement a place in some of bass music’s best billings.

 

Capturing the timelessness of a fading chapter in Hollywood’s glittering history and melding it with soulful sincerity, Haley Reinhart is no stranger to success. Her beguiling vocals and powerful delivery saw her cover of Radiohead’s “Creep,” which she recorded with Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, spend 58 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Jazz Digital Charts after hitting its #1 spot. A viral sensation, her cover of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” went certified Gold by the RIAA and saw her break 500 million total global streams and 2.5 million monthly Spotify listeners.

More recently, Haley hit #1 and appeared alongside Jeff Goldblum & The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra on Jimmy Kimmel Live for a performance of the title track from their jazz record My Baby Just Cares For Me which Haley is featured on.

 

Cuco and ​Dillon Francis team up for the release of their new song, ​“Fix Me” which along with a lyric video to accompany. The platinum-selling producer and the Chicano heartthrob are excited to premiere their new bilingual track which was​ ​featured as a World Record on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show on Apple Music today and finds Cuco yearning for another chance at love behind atmospheric production from Francis.

Francis currently finds himself on a co-headlining US tour, the “​Lost My Mind Tour​” alongside Alison Wonderland. The 15 city tour kicked off with sold-out shows in Madison, WI, Minneapolis, MN, and Chicago, IL over the weekend. The tour will continue across the US through its final show, February 23 ​in Pittsburgh, PA. For more information and tickets, visit ​www.lostmymindtour.com​.

 

Kim Petras has released a trio of new singles, including her anticipated collaboration with Grammy-nominated artist and producer SOPHIE entitled “1, 2, 3, Dayz Up,” a propulsive bop that shimmers with tropical synths and electro-pop gloss.

Bookending the series of pop singles in Kim’s vault with these long-awaited fan favorites, “Homework” feat. lil aaron is a nostalgic, reflective song that shows Kim at her most stripped-back while “If U Think About Me…” is a soaring 80s-infused power ballad which, complete with Kim’s modern twist, is sure to become a sing-a-long anthem.
