From the ashes of a indie pop band, after a key musical collaborator left music to become a priest instead, solo electronic artist Vonica debuted initially in 2018, with track ‘Ai’; a summery beat mash inspired by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. ‘If You’re New Here Dance’ is Vonica's latest four-track EP that includes a Hot Chip Remix, courtesy of the UK band’s drum maestro Felix Martin. The EP also features a vocal collaboration from Sonia Bernado on the forthcoming single ‘Some Swim, Some Pray’.

Chris Liebing recently released his landmark 100th track on CLR as the German techno producer dropped two originals and a remix from film composer and techno/trance artist Ralf Hildenbeutel. ‘Time’ and ‘Sup’ are two techno tracks in the mould Liebing has possibly been known for throughout his career.
