Indie pop band ELEL is thrilled to release their new single “Gravity”, now available. Their new single is a cry to carry on even if all the circumstances are against you. It’s the moment right before the end when someone begs for another try. It may be foolish, but it also may be worth it.

Doctor P returns to his drum & bass roots with new track “Voices,” picking up where his alias DJ Picto left off. With the sort of huge Day-Glo riff and rock-solid sonics we’ve come to expect from the Doctor, this track is sure to fill the dancefloors and resonate with DNB fans worldwide.

The track follows hot on the heels of “Give It Up,” Doctor P’s collaboration with Franky Nuts which featured on Spotify’s Friday Cratediggers, and gained support from 12th Planet, Krewella, Excision, Pegboard Nerds and more.”Voices” rounds off an exciting summer for Doctor P, who has been wowing crowds across the globe, including Lost Lands Festival in the U.S. where he played a legendary b2b2b with Circus Records brethren Cookie Monsta and FuntCase. 

 

Indie Vision Music is proud to present the brand new full-length effort from Names Without Numbers (Omaha, NE / Council Bluffs, IA). This band took a long break between their debut in the early part of the last decade but is back with a powerful and incredibly catchy follow up.

This high quality in every sense of the word from the production to songwriting and musicality. It’s everything you want a good rock band to sound like and then some. If you’re into bands like Anberlin, Jimmy Eat World, Further Seems Forever, The All American Rejects, The Juliana Theory, Brandtson, Acceptance, Mae, and Eager Seas, then you’re going to fall in love with this new album.

 

Canadian singer, songwriter and producer Tep No returns to Ultra Music with “Autopilot.” Featuring delicate and warm, pop-infused vocals, a catchy topline and groovy melody, “Autopilot” combines the best elements of pop and dance productions, creating a fun housey bop for all to enjoy. 

Tep No once again shows off his prowess in both singing and producing with “Autopilot,” a piece that also showcases a dancier-style for the producer. A consistent force in the downtempo, chill space, Tep No’s newest work proves he’s here to stay.

 

NY-based, Philly-born, singer/ songwriter, Anna Shoemaker is thrilled to release her new single “If You’re Going (I’ll Go)” Via BMG along with her music video that is featured on American Songwriter. The 25-year-old budding alt-pop artist became a SoundCloud sensation with her viral mashup of Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” and Chance the Rapper’s “Cocoa Butter Kisses,” which she recorded on her bedroom floor. The song now has over 805K streams and caught the attention of key press tastemakers and fashion mogul Steve Madden. Then signed to 5Towns Records in late 2017 when she was chosen as Steve Madden’s Emerging Artist of the Year.

In September of 2018 Shoemaker released her debut EP, East Side, produced by GRAMMY-nominated producer JT Daly (K.Flay’s “Blood In The Cut”). which have landed her a spot as Facebook’s Artist of the Day and got her featured on Alt Nation’s (SiriusXM) Advanced Placement as well as praise from Billboard and numerous other press outlets.

 

Bear Grillz & HALIENE revisit their past lives through a timeless ballad built upon emotive piano chords, reverberant drops and introspective vocals on “The Way We Were.”

Following the release of his Demons album on Dim Mak, Bear Grillz closes out a prolific 2019 with the HALIENE-assisted “The Way We Were.” The single arrives in the midst of Bear Grillz’s massive 35-date tour across North America, which kicked off in Los Angeles in September. Since the release of his debut EP The High Grade in 2013, the Denver-based artist has emerged as one of dubstep’s most fun and forward-thinking talents. He’s released a flurry of projects and EPs throughout his career thus far, including Too Loud, Bear Grillz & Friends, and Half Man, Half Bear, among others. Most recently, he surprised fans with a deluxe version of Demons, which saw the album packaged alongside 2 bonus tracks and 8 brand new remixes.

 

Wooli continues his hot streak on Ophelia Records with his 4th release of the year – “Over You” Featuring Lena Leon. “Over You” follows up some of the biggest records on Ophelia this year: “Island,” a collaboration with Seven Lions and Trivecta, and the recent smash single “Another Me” with Seven Lions, Excision, and Dylan Matthew. 

Wooli ventures out on his own on “Over You,” and delivers potentially the best track yet, with help from Lena Leon’s vocal debut on the label. The melodic breakup ballad provides powerful and relatable lyrics from Lena alongside Wooli’s top-notch prolific bass sounds. 

 

A new face on Circus Records, Dallas’ Ace Aura makes his entrance with “Coma.” A friend and label mate of Circus’ very own Chime, who helped propel Ace Aura’s sound to the masses via his own label imprint Rushdown Records. Bright chords that are underlined with infectious sub-bass and highlighted with distorted vocals, the track takes you on a journey you won’t want to miss. Welcome to the awakening.

The Texan has spent the summer playing shows around the U.S, including supporting Pixel Terror in his hometown of Dallas, as well as playing his headline debut at Seattle’s Trinity Nightclub. Ace Aura was also personally asked to support SVDDENDEATH at his two-night takeover at the Ogden Theater in Denver. He has released on key bass labels including Niney9lives and Disciple, and we are excited to now bring you this dubstep delight on Circus.
