Having lent her tones to its first and third singles, Diana Miro is likely now the singer most readily associated with Nic & Bossi’s 11th album project. Cementing that rep, the trio re-team this month to add another fragment to ‘MOSAIIK’s sonic mosaic. After ‘Blame’ and ‘Nothing To Hide’, the Amsterdam-based singer is aiming to burn up the room again with ‘Hear Me Out’.
After the Original and nowifi Remix of Emma Hewitt’s ‘Into My Arms’, dropped earlier in the month, the evolution continues as the track adds Markus Schulz to its cast list. Schulz has given its first clubfloor translation, and one that equalizes Emma’s bittersweet evocations with an uplift.
Emma Hewitt is the voice behind various club and radio tracks, with collaborations for Tiesto, Armin, 3LAU, Cosmic Gate, Aly & Fila, Gareth Emery, Dash Berlin, Chris Lake, Ilan Bluestone and more. Now, Emma is releasing her first solo single in a good few years and this organic release - parts of which are even now still in process - begins with the Original and nowifi Remix of ‘Into My Arms’.
Having last year steered his mixcomp series into double-digit territory, Roger Shah’s ‘Magic Island’ is once again out with its 11th edition. Roger and his troop of Balearically minded music-makers have returned with another clutch of purpose-built sunny sonics.
Having just completed their coast-to-coast 30-date spring tour of the States, Cosmic Gate single out another track from their summer-upcoming ‘MOSAIIK Chapter 2’ album. For it the GRAMMY nominated duo have been joined by Nathan Nicholson, frontman of alt-indie grouping The Boxer Rebellion and more recently even, vocalist on releases by Claptone, Tinlicker, and Tom Staar.
2022 marks two decades since Rhys Fulber took his studio life beyond the realms of Delerium, with the self-titled LP, ‘Conjure One’. Since, his longplayers under the name have been near clockwork in their timing and consistency. Through LP milestones like ‘Extraordinary Ways’, ‘Exilarch’ and ‘Holoscenic’, every five years or so he’s given discerning electronic music lovers something to listen to… and plenty to immerse in.
From 2007 to ‘10, Mr Sam’s ‘Opus’ compilations possibly became part of electronic music’s fabric. In the second decade of the new millennium, he largely set DJing to one side, focusing instead on other passions, music production and graphic design amongst them. The four releases (or ‘Opus’, ‘Secundo’, ‘Tertio’ and ‘Quarto’ as they were known) seemed that they may remain a rampart for those prepared to look beyond the musical horizon of the time.
Singers have long been writing songs based on their experiences lived but there are some subjects though that no one should have that much personal knowledge of. Singer Natalie Gioia has spent the last three months living through the shelling of her native Kyiv.
Two years to the month since his 20-track-strong ‘Transcend’ complement arrived, Northern Irish born and based Aaron ‘Fonzerelli’ McClelland is back, with the album ‘Silent Dreams & Misguided Stories’.
