Music Monday: Tom Ferry & Lodato, Jason Ross, The Weeks, Kris Menace, and Riotron

Tom Ferry & Lodato link up with the help of PollyAnna to bring you upbeat anthem “Own The Night” out now on Enhanced Music. A transatlantic collaboration sees Liverpudlian producer Tom Ferry join forces with New York-based producer Lodato for a supercharged banger to usher in the New Year.

Tom Ferry is hot on the heels of dropping previous Enhanced single “Nobody But You” in October and Lodato’s most recent single “Home” was the #1 Dance Radio record in the US. With a spirited vocal from Dutch singer PollyAnna, “Own The Night” brings certified good vibes with its pumped-up mood and peppy flavor. 

 

For his first release of the New Year, Jason Ross has teamed up with one of his favorite collaborators, Dia Frampton, to release the title track from his first full-length artist album, “1000 Faces.” The LP will be released January 24 on Ophelia, representing the flourishing young label’s first foray into full-length releases. 

The partnership Jason has forged with Dia is emblematic of his new approach to producing and crossing genres. Over the past few years, he’s created many new relationships with writers, singers, and producers, but his collaborations with Frampton have proved particularly fruitful. 

 

The Weeks release performance video of their single “Two Moons” and announce five headline shows across their home state of Mississippi.

The live clip was filmed at the Columbia City Theater in Seattle, WA on the band’s headlining North American Fall Tour in support of their latest album, Two Moons. It was directed & produced by Keirda Bahruth, edited by Rick Ballard, and filmed by Keirda Bahruth, Domenic Barbero, and Rick Ballard.

 

Kris’ comeback release sees the light of day thanks to Famouz, the label imprint founded by Sony Music and SDM in June 2019. The joint venture between the major label and the top producers and managers Stefan Dabruck and Frank Klein (Robin Schulz, Alle Farben, Hugel…) was set up to promote outstanding pop music talents around the world.

The outstanding vocals on “Rome” were provided by 20-year-old Millé from Munich. The young singer and actor, who is about to graduate from high school this year, found considerable success with his first two singles “All Good” and “Minimal Love.”

 

“There For You” is the follow up to Riotron’s debut release “I’m Sorry”, which in just three months, has collectively garnered hundreds of thousands of streams, with its subsequent lyric video racking up more than a million views since early December.

Sonically, the music of ‘There For You’ draws on modern synth-pop and electronica sounds, mixed with 80s-influenced new wave guitar. Even the name Riotron is derived from the hit song “Rio” by Duran Duran and the fantasy sci-fi film, ‘Tron’, all iconic to the eighties era which seems to be a big inspiration for Riotron’s music and imagery.
