Music Monday: MASTERIA & Valy Mo, Souvlaki, Hologramme, Steve Aoki & K?D, and Thomas Gold ft. R3SPAWN

Two years after the previous “Tracks” EP, Souvlaki releases “Continued Survival” EP, which emerges as a concentration of disparate sounds in a small number of tracks.

This eclectic and multifaceted EP was preceded by two singles that immediately gave the measure of the great variety of influences in this new release: “7LUNGS” and “Isolation”.

Montreal’s emerging electronic producer Hologramme delivers his first single and music video of the new year. 

His latest single “DREAM” expands on both his electronica and atmospherically driven sound with the accompanying music video directed by Alexis Belhumeur​, setting the release apart from his previous works.

Steve Aoki & k?d bring it back to the old school days of rave on their 170 BPM anthem  “BIB.” Pulsating low ends spliced up with hoovers and rolling snares ignite a sonic headrush of pure hardcore madness as Aoki and friends continue on their ‘Rave Royale.’ 

“BIB” follows Aoki’s acclaimed Timmy Trumpet collaboration “Tarantino (feat. STARX).” Both singles are part of his upcoming six-track rave EP, 6OKI – Rave Royale, out now via Dim Mak. You’ll enjoy the track as much as the visuals.

Nicky Romero is kicking off 2021 on a positive note with the release of his new single “Into The Light,” a true progressive house jewel for which he teamed up with Protocol talent Timmo Hendriks and Arizona-based singer/songwriter David Shane.

Opening with upbeat piano melodies layered over a steadily building bass line, “Into The Light” reaches its crescendo with a goose bump-inducing drop. Shane’s soulful vocals serve at the emotive cherry-on-top for a track that sees Nicky returning to his signature sound after 2020’s pop-oriented Universal Music debut “Nights With You.” On the other hand, “Into The Light” follows Timmo Hendriks’s single “Memories,” featuring Jordan Grace.

Thomas Gold returns to his big room progressive roots on the new single “Letting Go” on Protocol Recordings, for which he teamed up with newcomer R3SPAWN and Arizona-based singer/songwriter David Shane.

Opening with delicately groovy melodies and soulful vocals, Gold and R3SPAWN build anticipation with a percussive buildup that leads magnificently into an uplifting drop. After a challenging and unprecedented year, “Letting Go” serves as a cathartic and energizing anthem to start 2021 on a positive note.
