Combining with Arius who as a duo have carved out a reputation releasing for hard-hitting sounds for legendary labels such as Dim Mak, as well as exhibiting their musicality with exhilarating live instrumental bass music performances.

 

In “Time Rider”, Chromatics employ the metaphor of a motorcycle as an inter-dimensional bridge between the future and the past. In this dream, the motorcyclist mirrors myths of the grim reaper as Ruth Radeleteerily asks “Can I take your hand? I want to ride with you into the storm.”

Chromatics announce their first public concerts in over 5 years. The last time Chromatics was on stage was for the filming of their Roadhouse appearances in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. This six-week North American tour will be the first time the band performs live with vocalist Ruth Radelet in many of the cities. Onstage, the group will be playing their favorite moments from Night Drive, Kill For Love, Cherry, & Dear Tommy.

 

Chart-topping rock band The Revivalists recently snuck away to Santa Fe with some RevHeads in tow for a crazy night at Meow Wolf’s mind-bending House of Eternal Return – or didn’t they? Not all is what it seems in their new video for single “Change,” much like Meow Wolf itself.

The buzzed-about art collective’s House of Eternal Return (backed by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin) is a huge immersive multidimensional mystery dwelling complete with secret passages and portals to magical worlds amidst surreal and mesmerizing art installations. Go on the journey and check out the first look for the video, which was directed by Zev Deans.

 

Through beautiful synths, a melodic bassline, and angelic vocals from Sara Skinner, Yetep stuns on his energetic New Noise debut “What Do U Want.”

“What Do U Want” feels like a journey through cosmic space with its beautiful melodies and stunning vocals from Sara Skinner. Yetep, which is an anagram for Petey, has built up a sense of community through his music, brand, his own curated shows and also his own community benefit festival called CommonUnitÿ.  After selling out headline shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Austin in 2018, Yetep’s new year started off strong. He followed his OMFG New Years performance by releasing an original collaboration alongside Vincent titled “Same Page.” While his music today is supported by the likes of Tritonal and Manila Killa, Yetep is a fresh face in the SoCal electronic scene poised for big things.

 

Soulful songstress Haley Reinhart has released a music video for “Lo-Fi Soul”. Comprised of snapshots of her life, the video reflects what the title track and album Lo-Fi Soul mean to Reinhart. “Lo-fi reflects my analog heart, while the soul reveals untold stories I want you all to experience with me” she explains of her “old soul” approach to music. “I’ve been told I’m an old soul my whole life, and I feel like I’ve lived many,” Reinhart says. “You’ll find me floating through time with different genres and eras in my mind that taste all too familiar, like a fine red wine.”

In support of the new album, Reinhart has also announced an eighteen-city, Lo-Fi Soul tour, which will begin on April 2 in New York City. Tickets for the tour are on sale now and can be found HERE.

 

SPC ECO has released their new album ‘Fifteen’, a digital-only release that follows the band’s ‘Calm’ LP and ‘Under My Skin’ EP, both released in 2018. Ahead of that, they previewed the lead single ‘The Heart and Soul’.

An electronic musical maverick, Dean’s style complements Berlin’s vulnerable yet tender vocals. As a father and daughter, they explore their relationship and the world around them through music, creating heartfelt sounds to express the language of their souls and conversations that are often too difficult to be encapsulated by mere words.
