Music Monday: Dr Meaker, Anna Lunoe & Nina Las Vegas, UZ + SoloSam, Felix Jaehn ft. Mesto & VCATION, and Jackie Castro

Star of underground British bass, Hot Goods is debuting for Circus Records with a remix of Dr Meaker’s “You & I” feat. Lorna King. With unbelievable releases for the likes of Night Bass and Bingo Bass, he’s a fine recruit indeed.

Incorporating Lorna King’s soulful vocal from the original, the talented performer has lent her voice to the likes of Alibi, Octo Pi, as well as several other Dr Meaker tracks. Now fans wait with bated breath for her upcoming release on Hospital Records with Makoto!

 

Heralded Australian producers Anna Lunoe and Nina Las Vegas join forces on the gritty, club slammer “One Thirty,” out now on Mad Decent / NLV Records. 

Longtime friends who came upon similar paths from Australia’s booming dance music scene, it’s no wonder that the first collab from the two curation queens is an absolute smash. Both artists boast impressive careers, playing Coachella, touring the world, and each hosting national radio shows on triple j and Beats1. 

 

Trap artist, UZ, has linked up with Chicago rapper SoloSam for the aptly named single “Fire.” UZ’s contemporary take on a traditional hip hop beat builds a steady foundation for SoloSam’s glossy rap with a rugged melody that weaves in and out. The result is a bone-rattling experience; from the speakers through to your entire physical existence. “Fire” is the third single off UZ’s forthcoming LP, and follows recent single and dazy video, “Bang Bang”, as well as the highly awaited “Awakening”, which featured fellow trap founder, HUCCI.

The release of “Fire” allows UZ to show off a more hip-hop driven production featuring bars from SoloSam, an emerging, multidisciplinary Chicago artist. Growing up in a highly artistic family (his father and namesake is a well-known Ghanian painter, Samuel Akainyah), SoloSam’s musical ear and smokey voice conjoin to create a flow all his own. As both a producer and rapper, SoloSam’s sophisticated lyricism and tasteful stylings make him one to watch. Clearly, UZ’s fanbase appreciates his rap records, as UZ’s last hip hop record was a massive collaboration with Rome Fortune, and garnered nearly 4 million streams on Spotify.

 

Fresh off of the stage from his summer festival tour and a string of US dates, Felix Jaehn is back with a brand new single, ‘Never Alone’ alongside Dutch producer Mesto & Swedish mega duo VCATION. With performances at some of the world’s most famous events, including Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza & Parookaville, Jaehn returns to close the summer with his next hit.

‘Never Alone’ addresses a universal struggle, and pinpoints mental health awareness by highlighting loneliness and heartache, even within a crowd. Jaehn reworked these feelings (some of them personal) into an uplifting festival anthem, ripe with euphoric melodies and touching lyrics. Featuring a soothing guitar riff and a highly danceable tempo, ‘Never Alone’ radiates positivity and will surely feature in many performances before the close of 2019.

 

Colombian-American alt-pop artist Jackie Castro is thrilled to unveil her new single “Romanticize” which received its radio world premiere on Boston’s Mix 104.1 station last night. The single comes alongside the release of her 50’s Hollywood movie-inspired music video.

This is her second single released off her upcoming album following the August release of her debut single, “You Want It, I Want It.” The debut single received radio play in Boston & Dallas,  has over 60,000 streams and 550,000 impressions to date. Both releases were co-written by Jackie Castro.
