Music Monday: VAR, DJ Bluey, Doctor P, Godlands ft. SAMPLEGOD, Danny Zee, and Elise Lieberth

Reykjavík, Iceland emotional post-rock collective VAR has signed with Spartan Records (Fallow Land, Giants Chair) and will release a new album titled ‘The Never-Ending Year’ on April 24.

Bassist Egill Björgvinsson says, “Moments” was written shortly before our tour to Japan in December 2017 and was put on the setlist just before leaving. When we got back home we decided to record the song and contacted our friend Eiður Steindórsson to produce and record with us. We really liked working with Eiður and the sound he brought, so we decided to make a whole record with him. So one could say that “Moments” set the tone for the whole album. Lyrically the song is about enjoying moments with the ones who are closest to you; family, friends.”

 

London based producer DJ Bluey has had quite a diverse career. His journey spans across nearly two decades, with his DJ experience stemming from a background in house and garage.

Returning to his house roots, DJ Bluey unveils his groovy new single, ‘Wine It’ out now via Idris Elba’s imprint, 7Wallace.

From there, DJ Bluey supported Akon on tour worldwide for nearly seven years due to his versatility and talent. DJ Bluey has performed in countless high profile clubs across the globe including Privilege Ibiza, Ministry Of Sound (London), Ibiza Rocks and more.

With a lethal combo of exhilarating rap bars, fluctuant bass and lo-fi trap beats, Aussie producer Godlands strikes gold once more through single “Smoke Em Up,” featuring sad boy rap up-and-comer SAMPLEGOD.

Sitting at the forefront of Australia’s burgeoning bass music scene, the Adelaide-based musician continues to spread her bold sounds around the globe.

Producer and songwriter, Danny Zee, is forging his new artist path by announcing his upcoming debut album, Blue Butterfly, out now on all streaming platforms. Danny Zee is combining his Pakistani with his love of western genres of R&B and Hip-Hop to create a sound uniquely his own.

Comprised of 8 original tracks, written over a 6-month period, the entirety of the album was written, composed, and produced by Danny in complete isolation and lock-down. The journey of the record was to document his progression from the dark to the light. Each track documents a moment on this path that has led Danny Zee to reach his full artistic expressions, such as heartbreak, abandonment, solitude, and acceptance.
