KITO – BLOSSOM

KITO’S NEW EP, BLOSSOM, SET FOR RELEASE ON NOVEMBER 5 VIA ASTRALWERKS 

Featuring BROODS, Terror Jr, ZHU, Jeremih, Bea Miller, VanJess & Channel Tres

On the heels of her first RIAA Gold certification as a listed artist, Astralwerks artist Kito announces the November 5 release of her new EP, Blossom, and unveils the leadoff track from the seven-song set, Skin & Bones ft. Winona Oak. Lush and luminous, “Skin & Bones” is an infectious, deeply romantic slice of dance-pop. Kito wrote the song with Sarah Aarons (Zedd, Alessia Cara, Maren Morris).

Born and raised in the Nordic forests of Sweden, Winona Oak first came to attention as a writer and featured artist on What So Not’s “Beautiful” and The Chainsmokers’ Gold-certified “Hope.” Her own debut single, “He Don’t Love Me,” was a runaway success, amassing 50 million streams across all platforms to date. Following her recent single “Old Insecurities” and her latest EP SHEwhich features the self-empowerment anthem “With Myself” and the stunning ballad “Piano in the Sky,” Winona Oak is currently at work on her debut album to be released next year.

Bitter, Kito’s first collaboration with FLETCHER, has been certified Gold by the RIAA and has amassed over 88 million combined global streams. She produced and co-wrote FLETCHER’s new single, girls girls girls, a bold reimagining of Katy Perry’s groundbreaking hit “I Kissed a Girl,” and earned acclaim for her remix of MARINA’s “Venus Fly Trap.”

Kito’s recent hits – “Follow” with ZHU and Jeremih, “Recap” with VanJess and Channel Tres, and “Steal My Clothes” ft. Bea Miller – shed light on the Australian-born, Los Angeles-based producer’s approach to futurist pop. All three tracks are included on Blossom, as well as new collaborations with BROODS “Locked On You” and Terror Jr “Tongue Tied.” See below for track listing.

Fans who pre-order the EP will instantly receive “Skin & Bones,” “Steal My Clothes,” “Recap” and “Follow.” Named as the “ultimate summer club record” by Dancing Astronaut, “Follow” has amassed more than 10 million combined global streams. Billboard hailed “Recap” as “deliciously decadent and refreshing.” Praising “Steal My Clothes,” The Honey Pop said, “From the lyrics, to what a feel-good track it is, everything is A+.”

Mufasa × Hypeman × Dopamine

Following the runaway success of the viral single “Friday”–which has garnered a staggering half a billion streams, shot to the Top 5 in the UK and been certified platinum with over 750,000 UK sales – the exciting duo Mufasa & Hypeman recently teamed up again with DJ/producer collective Dopamine for their new single ‘Weekend’ via Ministry Of Sound Recordings/RCA Records. They release the video for the single which sees Mufasa & Hypeman travelling back in time to an ‘80s house party with a special throwback performance from Dopamine.

The Alexander Lamburini directed visual is the perfect pairing for the infectious single “Weekend” which was released in time for the August Bank Holiday weekend and offers a sprinkling of nostalgia with its reworking of Madonna’s 80s pop classic “Holiday.” Hypeman & Mufasa, with Dopamine on production and vocals, have set the agenda for many weekends to come with the addictive track that has already racked up over two million streams since release and been added to playlists on Capital FM and Kiss FM and received numerous plays on Radio 1 Dance Anthems.

Speaking on the single, Mufasa said: “We wanted to do something different and pay homage to Madonna with the 80s classic song, ‘Holiday’ but with our little twist. We decided to declare the weekend a Holiday because who doesn’t love the weekend?” Hypeman said: “We always try to be better than our last and with this new single, I know we did just that. Creating the weekend was not only fun for us, but relatable for everyone around the world” Dopamine vocalist Sam Harper added: ‘It feels like the right time to bring joy to the world by getting everybody back on the dancefloor. We’ve been working hard to capture that energy in our records and can’t wait to see everyone’s reactions.” Dopamine DJ, Ethan Porte added: “I can’t wait to start playing this one in my sets. If ‘Friday’ is anything to go by, people are going to love this one”

Mufasa & Hypeman are the unlikely duo that shot to global fame following the release of their iconic viral adaptation of MK’s legendary remix for Nightcrawlers’ club classic ‘Push The Feeling On’. The video has spread joy to millions of people around the world during lockdown and became an instant hit on TikTok with the likes of Katy Perry, Kanye West and Gordon Ramsay paving the way for a challenge which would see tens of thousands of people get involved. The viral video was also picked up by BBC’s The One Show and featured as part of Radio 1 Greg James’ Lockdown Awards. 

Dopamine is the brainchild of a set of visionary music producers who have produced multi-platinum smashes across the globe under various other guises and have dominated the charts with feel-good, club-ready dance records. The DJ/producer collective also includes vocalist Sam Harper who also provided the vocals for the last smash single “Friday”.

Pokémon 25: The Red EP RELEASE

ZHU Remixes All Three Tracks For Pokémon 25: The Blue EP, Out Later This Month

The Dual Releases Honor a Pokémon Tradition As 25th Anniversary Celebration Continues

Three new artists have joined Pokémon’s 25th-anniversary celebration: Vince Staples, Cyn and ZHU. Staples and Cyn contribute exclusive new songs to Pokémon 25: The Red EP, which was released today. Available HERE, the EP also features Mabel’s song “Take It Home,” which was unveiled last month. View Pokémon 25: The Red EP visualizers on YouTube HERE.

Reflecting the longstanding tradition of dual releases for the core Pokémon video game series, with each featuring nuanced differences from the other, and paying homage to the original Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue video games, Pokémon 25: The Blue EP will follow later this month. It will feature remixes of The Red EP songs by GRAMMY-nominated recording artist ZHU, who is fresh off the release of his third album, DREAMLAND 2021, and a sold-out, six-night stand at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater.

The songs from The Red EP will appear on the upcoming P25 Music compilation album, which will be released this autumn by Capitol Records as part of a massive, yearlong music campaign from The Pokémon Company International in partnership with Universal Music Group. ZHU’s remixes will be included on the digital edition of the album. Vince Staples, Cyn and ZHU take their places alongside fellow P25 artists Katy Perry, Post Malone, J Balvin and Mabel.

On the atmospheric, melodic “Got ‘Em,” Vince Staples faces life’s challenges head-on, drawing inspiration from iconic Pokémon characters Mew and Raichu. Staples recently released his self-titled, fourth album out now via Blacksmith Recordings/Motown Records. Garnering positive reviews from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NPR Music and NME among others, the LP debuted as the No. 1 Current Rap Album and landed at No. 21 on the Billboard 200 Chart week of release. Staples is also currently working on bringing his dramedy, The Vince Staples Show, to Netflix.

“I’ve always been a fan of Pokémon, so it was particularly special to be asked to take part in this 25th-anniversary celebration,” said Vince Staples. “I’m excited for people to hear ‘Got ‘Em,’ and hope the song resonates with fans, especially those who grew up with Pokémon like I did.”

Cyn—who is signed to Katy Perry’s Unsub Records and recently contributed two songs to the soundtrack for the Oscar-winning film Promising Young Woman—offers up “Wonderful,” a shimmering song that celebrates friendship and the joy of being alive.

Cyn shares, “I am so excited to release one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written, ‘Wonderful,’ in celebration of 25 years of Pokémon! This song is special to me because I feel it comments on growing pains while also emphasizing a destination of grace and a beautiful journey to it—eggs hatch when they want to or in other words, when they are ready. When I wrote this song, my newborn baby son was in the room—I can hear the influence of becoming a new mother in the music, it will always ring special for me.”

“The Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue video games introduced the world to Pokémon 25 years ago and we wanted to recognize that important part of the franchise in our 25th-anniversary celebrations within the P25 Music campaign,” said Colin Palmer, vice president of marketing, The Pokémon Company International. “Pokémon fans will appreciate the nod to the first Pokémon video games with these EPs, while music fans will enjoy new songs and remixes from exciting artists on these dual collections.”

The Red EP kicks off with “Take It Home,” an original song from BRIT Award recipient Mabel. PAPER Magazine noted, “to say it’s a bop would be a complete understatement—‘Take It Home’ is packed with bright and buoyant beats.” The official video, People Magazine observed, “finds the star chasing Jigglypuff into a Wonderland-style dreamworld full of colorful ensembles and pop star choreography.”

Fans can keep up with the latest news for P25 Music and more celebrations across the franchise on Pokémon’s 25th-anniversary website. Pokémon 25: The Blue EP can be pre-saved HERE.

Pokémon and music fans are invited to join the conversation online with @Pokemon and #Pokemon25.

He’s All That (Music from the Netflix Film)

HE’S ALL THAT (MUSIC FROM THE NETFLIX FILM) SET FOR AUGUST 27 RELEASE VIA ASTRALWERKS

Listen To Cyn’s Cover Of Sixpence None The Richer’s Kiss Me HERE

Film Released Globally On Netflix On August 27

Astralwerks will release He’s All That (Music From The Netflix Film) on August 27, the day of the film’s global release on Netflix. The 16-track compilation features Cyn’s cover of Sixpence None the Richer’s global hit Kiss Me, which is heard in the trailer. Check out Cyn’s sparkling version of Kiss Me HERE. View the trailer, which debuted on TikTok earlier today, HERE.

In this remake of the 1999 teen classic She’s All That, an influencer specializing in makeovers bets she can transform an unpopular classmate into prom king. Sixpence None the Richer’s original version of Kiss Me was heard in She’s All That. The song received a GRAMMY nomination and placed in the top 10 of the Billboard 100 for the year.

Of course, there are many songs that have influenced my career, but of all the songs in the universe, ‘Kiss Me’ has to be one of my absolute favorites, says Cyn. I have many fond memories of discovering my voice to ‘Kiss Me’ while riding in the backseat of my mom’s car. When I was approached with the opportunity to sing this song, I was ecstatic and so grateful. I am thrilled with how it turned out and can’t wait to see it in He’s All That.

Cyn released her debut EP, Mood Swings, in 2019 via Katy Perry’s Unsub Records. Her songs have been widely licensed, including placements in soundtracks for Netflix’s To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You and the Oscar-winning film Promising Young Woman.

He’s All That (Music From The Netflix Film) also includes new songs from Blu de Tiger (Go Bad), Valentino Khan ft. ALMA (Stop Talkin’) and Kaz Gamble and Doug Ray (Mean Streets of Pali).

Carried Away, the sweeping hit ballad from Surf Mesa with Madison Beer, features prominently in the film. Both the original song and the Tchami remix of Carried Away are found on the soundtrack along with recent hits from Katy Perry, Topic, Bebe Rexha, ATB, A7S, Fisher, Troye Sivan, Kacey Musgraves, Mark Ronson, Emilee, Tesher, TCTS, Glowie and WizTheMC. See below for track listing. Fans who pre-order/pre-save He’s All That (Music From The Netflix Film) HERE will instantly receive Kiss Me plus Kiss Me (Remix).

In this reimagining of 1999’s She’s All That, Padgett (TikTok star Addison Rae) has mastered her perfect high school life: She’s a popular beauty influencer with a huge following, and her hot pop star boyfriend makes her the envy of everyone on her feed. But after she catches him cheating while livestreaming, she goes viral for all the wrong reasons. To repair her reputation, Padgett makes a risky bet that she can turn her scruffy anti-social classmate Cameron (Cobra Kai’s Tanner Buchanan) into prom king material. Things get complicated when she finds herself falling for him IRL, and learning no one is quite who they seem on social media, least of all herself.

DALLASK × LAUV — “TRY AGAIN”

Today, acclaimed producer/songwriter/artist DallasK unveiled his summery new single, “Try Again,” which features longtime friend and collaborator Lauv on vocals. With a wistful look back and a hopeful eye to the future, the track builds into an infectious, exhilarating plea to rekindle a romance that was perhaps never really over. You can download and stream “Try Again,” which was released today via Astralwerks, HERE. You can watch the lyric video HERE.

“Try Again” continues the collaboration that began when DallasK co-produced and co-wrote Lauv’s 2016 single “Breathe.” DallasK also co-produced and co-wrote “Sad Forever,” a single from Lauv’s 2020 debut album, ~how i’m feeling~, and collaborated on Lauv’s 2020 EP, Without You. The pair co-wrote “Try Again” with Michael Pollack (Lizzo, Zedd, Justin Bieber). In addition to producing, DallasK played all the instruments on the song.

DallasK, who is also known for his work with such artists as Tiësto, Fifth Harmony, BTS, Chromeo and KSHMR, says, “‘Try Again’ is actually the first dance record Lauv and I made together and it was super fun to create a unique record that encompasses both of our styles and influences.”

Lauv added, “Me and Dally made this song a couple years ago and we came back to it during quarantine and now we ready to put ‘er out into the world.”

Like the unforgettable ex in the song, the artists couldn’t resist returning to “Try Again,” a song that dates back to an informal 2016 recording session. Lauv and Michael Pollack joined Dallas at a lake house he’d rented in his hometown of Orlando, FL and there they created over a dozen songs.

“Several months later, Lauv’s artist project started to grow rapidly and he was suddenly on tour with Ed Sheeran and playing all around the world,” recalls DallasK. “We continued to work on his albums but ‘Try Again’ was always a favorite of ours that had gotten seemingly lost in the shuffle.”

After they rediscovered the track last year, Dallas FaceTimed Lauv with an idea for a more dance-focused version. Lauv loved it so much, he immediately re-recorded the vocals.

“Then we finished the record on a trip to Mexico for New Year’s and that’s the version you hear today!” says DallasK.

About DallasK:

Based in Los Angeles, DallasK (Dallas Koehlke) has released a string of acclaimed singles, including “All My Life,” “Self Control,” “I Know” and “Sometimes.” Praising the “relatable story” told on “Sometimes,” Billboard asked, “Does true love ever die? […] ‘Sometimes,’ the ghost of the past never really goes away. That’s the kind of love DallasK, Nicky Romero and XYLO wrote about on their summer heartbreak sing-along.”

DallasK is also known for his collaborations with such artists as Tiësto (“Show Me,” “Your Love”), Hardwell (“Area 51”) and KSHMR (“Burn”). He co-wrote and produced Fifth Harmony’s 5x Platinum single, “Work From Home” feat. Ty Dolla Sign as well as their singles “Down” and “He Like That.” He’s also remixed singles for such artists as Martin Garrix/Bebe Rexha, The Chainsmokers, MGMT, A-Trak/Andrew Wyatt, Skrillex and T.I./Pharrell/Robin Thicke.

Popdust observed, “It’s impossible to escape his influence. From Ariana Grande and Kesha to Lauv, Katy Perry and Fifth Harmony, Koehlke has curated a staggering number of today’s hits, whether behind the scenes or in the production chair.”

About Lauv:

Lauv has quietly and steadily become one of pop’s brightest rising stars. He has released his music completely independently with billions of streams to his name. He has written for some of the biggest stars in the world, performed on late night talk shows, played stadiums opening for Ed Sheeran, and sold out shows in 20+ countries as a headliner. And he did all of this without releasing an album.

That changed in early 2020, with Lauv’s official debut, ~how i’m feeling~. A 21-song tour de force, the project marks a breakthrough, a real moment of arrival, from a young singer/songwriter/producer who Rolling Stone called “Pop’s Up-and-Coming Heartbreak King.” The album released as a Top 20 album in 10 territories, including #9 in UK and #5 in AU, with over 1.5 billion combined streams to date.

Since then, Lauv has released a surprise new EP titled Without You, created during quarantine, and joined forces with rising global pop superstar Conan Gray on the new single “Fake.” Lauv has been open about his own struggles with anxiety and depression and has taken action on the issue with his Blue Boy Foundation, which supports programs that help young people feel more comfortable reaching out for help with mental health.

About Astralwerks:

Established in 1993 in New York City, Astralwerks was the brainchild of Caroline Records staffers who saw an opportunity for a label focused on the nascent electronic and ambient scene. Now based at the historic Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, Astralwerks has emerged as a modern, artist-first label and the #1 market share leader for dance/electronic music in the U.S. Combining a scalable, independent and global-thinking ethos with the ability to tap into the resources of a major label has enabled Astralwerks to sign such artists as ILLENIUM, Jonas Blue, Alison Wonderland, EDEN, ZHU and Alesso.

Global pop superstar Katy Perry, in collaboration with Theta Network, announced the launch of Katy Perry NFTs for her fans worldwide. The first digital collectibles of the collaboration will feature content from Katy’s upcoming “Play” residency at the brand new Resorts World Las Vegas hotel, beginning in December 2021. Katy Perry will also acquire a minority interest in Theta Labs, alongside Perry’s talent agency, Creative Artists Agency (CAA), one of Theta’s latest enterprise validators.

“I’m both excited and curious to be launching my first ever NFTs later this year with Theta Network,” said Katy Perry. “This is a new, unique opportunity to connect with my fans around the world even if they aren’t with me in Las Vegas. I can’t wait to dive in with the Theta team on all the exciting and memorable creative pieces, so my fans can own a special moment of my residency that’s both a digital collectible as well as an IRL experience.”

This is the first-ever Las Vegas residency to feature exclusive NFTs commemorating the events, making them a one-of-a-kind collectible for Katy Perry super-fans across the world. As of today, fans can pre-register and be notified of the first NFT drops HERE.

“Coinciding with Theta’s Mainnet 3.0 launch, working with a global icon like Katy Perry over the next year marks an important inflection point in Theta Network’s history and a big step towards global adoption of Theta blockchain,” said Mitch Liu, co-founder and CEO of Theta Labs. “With the help of CAA and Katy’s management team, we’re charting a course towards reaching well beyond crypto enthusiasts to millions of music, media and entertainment fans around the world. In the end, we see this as an important milestone towards a million daily transactions on the Theta network.”

Theta Network’s NFT marketplace, ThetaDrop, is powered by the Theta protocol and a native blockchain that is significantly different from other NFT platforms as it was purposefully built for media and entertainment. The cost of minting NFTs and gas fees are as low as $0.15 on the Theta network and transaction times are 100x faster than on Ethereum. More importantly, the Theta protocol is built from the ground up on a proof-of-stake (POS) model and therefore uses a fraction of the electricity and resources making it significantly greener, and more environmentally friendly than other platforms.

With the launch of the Theta Mainnet 3.0 protocol upgrade on June 30th, Theta’s distributed network of more than 100,000 global community-run edge nodes continues to grow exponentially. In the future, edge nodes will support decentralized NFT storage enabling users to truly own and take custody of their NFTs, and not depend on any centralized platform. Cross-chain bridges between Theta Network, Ethereum and other blockchains will enable seamless NFT transfer across marketplaces, notably Ethereum-based Opensea, Nifty Gateway and others.

Limited Edition Electric Merchandise Line Launches Today

View Music Video Here

Pokemon’s 25th-anniversary celebration continues with today’s release of iconic recording artist Katy Perry’s new single and video, Electric. Katy, whose love for all things Pokemon dates back to childhood, when she played the original video games on her Game Boy, created the track especially for Pokemon 25: The Album, which will be released this fall by Universal Music Group’s Capitol Records. There’s no reason that this life can’t be electric, sings Katy in the anthemic track, which celebrates the joy inherent in pursuing a dream, buoyed by the love and support of friends.

When I visited the Pokemon Café 9; while touring Japan, I got so nostalgic. It took me back to my junior high years.

Shoffy,” which reflects on growing apart in a relationship and shows Elise defying expectations to stand out alongside a cast of her best friends. “Less ft. Shoffy” took shape after Elise threw herself into reimagining an early version of the track being toyed with by her father (GRAMMY-winning producer Mikkel Eriksen) and using her encyclopedic knowledge of music history and first-hand experience of watching the world’s biggest stars while growing up in the studio. The Afrojack collaboration also follows Elise’s second single “Smile,” which was co-written by Sasha Sloan, (Charli XCX, Camila Cabello, Anne-Marie, Katy Perry) The track showcases Elise’s distinctive vocals over her own piano instrumental while speaking to putting on a façade and smiling even though you’re not okay. PRESS HERE to watch the breathtakingly stark video, which was shot entirely by iPhone 12 on a frozen lake in Norway at -15°F.

Originally from Norway, Elise moved to New York City soon after discovering her love for music and is now based in Los Angeles. Learning over the years what it takes to make a perfect pop song, Elise is the daughter of one half of uber-producers Stargate (Rihanna, Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Coldplay) and grew up in the studio surrounded by the world’s top artists and songwriters. Embracing the uncompromising work ethic she grew up surrounded by, Elise devoted years to playing the piano and honing her craft before experimenting with writing songs of her own. Inspired by artists as eclectic as Stevie Nicks, Alicia Keys, Don Toliver, Pink Floyd, and Etta James, the seventeen-year-old’s dynamic musical imagination and sharp musical instincts reflect her endless creative curiosity and a deep commitment to her artistic growth.

“’Smile’ is a stripped-down, confessional ballad, with a chorus that aims for the rafters and nicely showcases the newcomer’s developing range.” – Billboard

 “If you don’t already know the name Elise Eriksen, you’re about to in a big way.” – Sweety High

Debut EP out Fall 2021

Today, with the release of her vibrant, retro-pop video for “Get It Out,” the LA-born, Tel Aviv-based singer/songwriter Talia Londoner shares the first taste of her euphoric musical sound, destined to place her among the next generation of pop stars. Combining the vibrant feminist visuals of early Madonna and the classic emotional style of Katy Perry, Robyn, and Kylie Minogue, “Get It Out” was produced and designed with renowned Penthouse photographer, Hank Londoner, and director, Boaz Aquino, taking listeners back to the anthemic, party pop of the 1980s. It’s the first single from Londoner’s debut EP, out this fall.

Talia’s style and aesthetic was shaped by a uniquely colorful background, growing up the daughter of Penthouse head photographer, Hank Londoner, and prima ballerina, Susan Freedman Londoner, in an iconic LA home commonly referred to as “the Dollhouse.” Boasting a bright yellow facade and an unmissable red door, each room surprised guests with a different color and floral textured wallpaper, creating a bright whimsical environment for the aspiring creative and host of colorful characters who came through its doors each day. The dollhouse is the birthplace for Talia’s bold and honest approach; it’s where she learned that truth and a willingness to reveal all of your colors can be a glue that bring people together. The making of “Get It Out” was a complete family-affair, with both Hank and Susan contributing to its production, design, and styling.

Transplanting from LA to Tel Aviv in 2013, Londoner found herself in high demand as a songwriter, collaborating with prominent groups like UK’s Invisible Men, Simon Cowell’s former head of A&R Anya Jones, Cutfather, and Israeli producer Oren Emanuel. After making it to the Top 10 on “The Voice,” she toured the country and saw numerous radio hits with the Israeli electro-pop outfit, Let’s Mars. The release of “Get It Out” marks Londoner’s return to the US after a whirlwind trip abroad, and the birth of her unique brand of timeless pop that she hopes will unite and inspire.

“’Get It Out’ is an uplifting, 80-inspired self-love anthem about letting go and feeling your way to freedom,” adds Londoner. “It’s a love letter to myself and to you.”

Talia is certainly an artist to watch this year! We can’t wait to hear what she comes up with next.
