Music Monday: Grum, Tall Heights, Dejhare, APEK, Amon, Kenny Curcio, Max Styler, and SONDR

An anthemic feature on his long-anticipated studio album ‘Deep State’ (finally revealed to the world in early November), Grum’s ‘Running’ now sees a full release, complete with a refined club mix. Featuring the soulful talents of Jinadu – a sought-after vocalist and DJ, best known as one half of The Beauty Room – ‘Running’ is a sublime reflection of Grum’s artistry, marrying together well-versed synth-pop with more intensive trance-infused club sounds.

In support of ‘Deep State’ – Grum’s ‘Deep State Rewired’ tour is now broadcasting worldwide. Grum will be in Atlanta on Jan. 23, 2020 at District.

 

From playing on the streets of Boston to now performing in venues across the globe, the duo of Paul Wright and Tim Harrington, together known as Tall Heights, have built a career from the ground up, diligently as a relentless touring act.

The Boston-duo have released their new single, Under My Skin, and have an ATL tour date set for Jan. 22, 2020, at The Masquerade.

 

Elements of dark and light symbolize the diverse nature of Dejhare’s songwriting. The music video also presents a vulnerable side to Dejhare, who often expresses her music through faceless visuals. Currently, Dejhare is excited for her fans to see her new music video and for the official release her new album, Unbreakable. Be sure to follow Dejhare on social media for new music updates on the horizon.

Dejhare’s music has been well received. Her new album, Unbreakable, was recorded at the Soundtek Studios in Campbell, CA. All songs were written and produced by Dejhare, and with co-writing and co-production support from Robert Berry. The album combines a variety of sounds to bring a refreshing new groove to the pop landscape.

 

APEK, who has developed an impressive catalog of releases on Enhanced Music in the past few years, has teamed up with Man Cub for “Breathe In The Moment,” a fine display of both of their exciting and distinct production styles. American singer HALIENE lends her considerable vocal talents to the track, with all three combining to create a powerful, emotional record, out now on Enhanced Music.

Previously collaborating with Enhanced own’s Tritonal, as well as Bassjackers and Breath Carolina, LA-based APEK is no stranger to the art of collaboration. Combined with Man Cub’s tasteful pop-forward Dance sound, which has recently earned him official remix opportunities with Tritonal and Gryffin, it’s a match made in heaven. The icing on this collaborative cake is the vocals from rising EDM star, HALIENE, who has worked with Seven Lions, Illenium, and Ferry Corsten.

Rapper, singer, writer, producer, and engineer, San Diego-native Amon new album Crescendo is out now along with the music video to the track “Oprah Friends.”

Independently creating beats and telling his stories on to, Amon lives by the motto no excuses. As a teenager who dreamed of becoming a pro skater, Amon hit the pavement on the daily. One day, he took a hard fall that left him temporarily immobile. While he was recovering, he began to experiment with music as a cure for boredom. Amon was fascinated by the world of recording. His time immersed in the culture at Morehouse College in Atlanta further fueled his love of creating, and in 2015, he returned to San Diego with a marketing degree in hand and intentions to make music as a living.

 

NJ-based singer-songwriter Kenny Curcio has announced his new single “Hometown Heart” is now available. Written and produced by Curcio at 0x1 Studios in Cherry Hill, NJ, “Hometown Heart” is an uplifting blend of Americana and rock, which has become his signature sound. Lyrically, Curcio wrote an anthem to express his appreciation for where he started and celebrate how the past has shaped him.

Reflecting on what inspired him to write “Hometown Heart”, Kenny Curcio says, “I wanted to tell the story of where things started for me, which others can apply to their own life experiences. It’s all about remembering and appreciating the good times, and accepting life’s challenges as learning experiences; because they both can serve to help each of us grow into becoming the person we are meant to be.”

Uplifting piano house melodies and earworm vocal hooks provide a strong foundation on Max Styler‘s club-focused offering “Echo Over Me.”

Max Styler is making some of the best music of his career, with a streak of radio-friendly house records that highlight his diverse arsenal of euphoric textures and inspiring melodies.

 

Only a handful of dance music songs have infiltrated the popular mainstream like Eiffel 65’s iconic “Blue.” SONDR’s new single “So Blue” places a contemporary spin on this timeless classic, fusing the instantly recognizable melody and chorus of the original into a dark, modern thumper. But even when referencing one of the biggest dance records of all time, SONDR does not need to rely on nostalgia for “So Blue’s” effect. Instead, the duo effectively combines the charm of the original with their expertly-produced contemporary sound, creating something undoubtedly SONDR.

We are honored that Eiffel 65 allowed us to release our version and hope that existing fans will enjoy the nostalgia while new fans will discover one of the most infectious melodies of all time!” – SONDR

The English artists got their start as successful solo producers, working alongside vocalists such as Lana Del Ray, Meghan Trainor, Ella Eyre & Conor Maynard, and Yk Koi & Lorenzo Cosi. The decision to conjoin has proven to be a good one, with the two debuting with two Gold-certified singles, amassing over 100,000,000 streams and collaborating with international artists including Lenny Kravitz.
