Music Monday: Flux Pavilion, KYOSi, BLVD., Hannah Bakarat, Futuristic Polar Bears, and Kim Petras

Bass legend Flux Pavilion is back with “Lion’s Cage” featuring breakout LA vocal collective Nevve. This silky melodic masterpiece follows his all-star early 2019 smash “Saviour” which became a must hear for some of the genre’s most respected artists such as; ZEDS DEAD, SKisM, 12th Planet, Pendulum, Evol Intent, Delta Heavy, and so many more.

Following tracks with Illenium, San Holo, KSHMR, Elephante, Borgeous, Boombox Cartel, Madison Mars, and many more, Nevve’s identity still remains a mystery, but the patience of fans will be rewarded later in 2019. Ahead of an extensive North American tour celebrating 10 years of Circus Records, Flux Pavilion is delivering his unique brand of world-class sounds once more.

 

Born from a series of dreams, the name KYOSi represents a character fascinated by sound, math, symmetry, beauty, wonder, and color. Shows meander between verse and chorus style future-pop to deep, floor-opening doomsday bass, sampled laughter, pointed political criticism and experimental sampled sounds.

KYOSi is the alias for the multimedia artist, Dani DiCiaccio, who places value in the aesthetics and creativity of the visual arts. The artwork for the EP includes many symbolic images in an eclectic way that represent each track specifically, and are all unique from the standard, “cookie-cutter” artwork other artists may use.

Here we have a debut release from a new kid on the block – BLVD. His debut single is a dirty and hard-hitting “Crowd Control” that people could already hear on Diplo & Friends radio show and in sets of Alison Wonderland, RL Grime, 4B, Ekali to name a few. BLVD. represents the grit and rawness of everything that is associated with the hard asphalt, raw metal, and true essence of a “boulevard.”

Austin-based, hard/alternative artist, Hanna Barakat, announces her new single, “Damage Done,” ahead of the upcoming album, Siren, due out August 16, 2019, produced by John Moyer (Disturbed). Born in Texas to a Lebanese father and American mother,  Barakat combines a variety of influences. “While proudly paying homage to her roots, Barakat has cultivated her own style that merges Arab-Oriental influences with her love of rock music for a stunningly unique and original sound.”

The album was produced by John Moyer, Martin Nessi (Michael Jackson estate, Ariana Grande, Josh Groban, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, Ricky Martin, Kelly Clarkson), and mastered by Ted Jansen of Sterling Sound (Disturbed, Evanescence, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Halestorm, Pat Metheny).

Here’s a new release from Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings. After debuting on the label with “I Can’t Do It” in 2018, Futuristic Polar Bears are back with another vocal house gem – “You & Me.” The British duo’s last several months brought them releases on Revealed, Spinnin’s Wall Rec., Smash The House, Armada, Ultra among others.

Rhys and Fran destroyed dancefloors over 5 continents in far-flung destinations such as the USA & Canada, India, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, China, Jakarta, Malaysia, Holland, Germany, Italy, Brazil, France, Mauritius, Spain, and Ibiza. These sets that have earned them shows at the biggest and best venues, including three of the top 10 clubs in the world; Octagon(Seoul), Zouk Singapore and UshuaÏa (Ibiza), as well Ministry of Sound, Amnesia, Marquee, Myst, Digital & Avalon also in the top 100.

Kim Petras has released her latest single “Blow It All,” a chill, pop bop with a hip-hop flare.

“Blow It All” follows on the heels of “Broken”, which catapulted into the Top 10 on the iTunes Pop Chart and introduced a more grounded, personal sound for Kim, blending her trademark pop with trap beats and elements of hip-hop.
