Shot in Wyoming and directed by Eric Maldin, two young women find love in Laramie. They share an attraction to each other, but they only show it in public with slight gestures, like pinky touches.

A heart made of flames finally represents burning love and desire, allowing the two to reconcile and embrace.

The Terrace Dub Remix is a rework of the song with more driving energy, hypnotizing filters, slow beautiful builds and solid sharp drops while still featuring EVAN GIIA’s vocals.

Disclosure – Birthday

UK duo Disclosure has released their third single of the year less than two days from the release of their newest album “ENERGY.”

The new song is titled “Birthday” and features Kehlani and Syd.

Howard and Guy, the two brothers who make up the duo, bring fans back to the R&B sound of their second album with “Birthday.” They finished the track very quickly, and it easily made the cut to be on the upcoming album.

Along with the album’s release on Friday, Disclosure will release a new music video for “Birthday.” The video is directed by Kid Studio, a duo that has worked with Disclosure before along with other artists like Future and French Montana.

Howard said the song is about relationships with exes long after a breakup. Is it still okay to call them on their birthday?

“It’s the oldest song on the album by far, so it has definitely stood the test of time and deservedly made the cut” Guy said. “The addition of Kehlani just took it to the next level and turned it into a fire duet.”

They have also partnered with Minecraft for the release of “ENERGY,” as gamers can immerse themselves into the vibrant world of the new album.

Turbo – Music Video Release

TURBO RELEASES MUSIC VIDEO FOR SOPHOMORE SINGLE “RACING AFTER ME”

Calgary-born artist Turbo has released the music video for his sophomore single “Racing After Me” today via 10K Projects/ Homemade Projects/ Internet Money. The single has already been featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, PopCo, In My Feelings, and Young Music City playlists and arrives on the heels of his debut release “Heart Stop.” The music video shows Turbo rebellious and confident, racing cars, smoking cigarettes, and singing about how his life has changed since signing a record deal.

WATCH THE MUSIC VIDEO HERE

Born Nicholas LaMonaca, Turbo grew up on country thanks mainly to his
father (a famed guitarist in the international bluegrass scene), but felt drawn toward rap music and obscure electronic genres like hardstyle, the fusion of techno and hardcore. At the age of 12 he started making his own music, a move heavily inspired by Avicii’s progressive-house classic “LE7ELS.”

“Once I heard that song I couldn’t get enough of it,” Turbo recalls. “I was so obsessed, I ended up downloading FL Studio to try to recreate the melody on my own.”

Although he instantly discovered a natural talent for production, Turbo put music aside for several years, until he graduated high school. “On my 18th birthday I bought a laptop, keyboard, and set of speakers, and figured I’d have rappers come in and do their thing,” he says. “But after a while I just started winging it, making beats and rapping over them myself.”

As he pushed deeper into his artistry, Turbo began mining inspiration from left-of-center country singers like Colter Wall, a Canadian musician he stumbled across while stocking the shelves at his full-time liquor-store job. “Colter Wall has one of the raspiest, rawest, rudest voices I’d ever heard in my life, and it just completely took me over,” he notes.

From there, Turbo tapped into his own country roots and created a full-length project titled Sixth Gear, a 2019 release featuring his breakthrough single “Light Speed.” Soon after YouTube curator Astari shared the song’s video on his channel, “Light Speed” caught the attention of 10K, quickly paving the way for Turbo’s signing to the label, along with Homemade Projects and Internet Money Records.

In the making of his 10K / Homemade Projects / Internet Money debut, “Heart Stop,” Turbo embraced even more confidence in his songwriting, and followed his intuition more fully than ever.

“The more music I make and the better I know myself, the more I’ve realized that the best songs come from me sitting in a room alone and just taking my time—that’s how I come up with something honest and timeless,” he says. “I don’t really follow a particular process. Instead of worrying about any kind of rules, I just do what I want, and go with whatever feels right to me.”

Monsta X & Steve Aoki “Play It Cool

GLOBAL POP SENSATIONS MONSTA X & STEVE AOKI RELEASE ENGLISH VERSION OF HIT SINGLE “PLAY IT COOL” TODAY

STREAM “PLAY IT COOL” ENGLISH VERSION HERE

Today, global superstars, Monsta X, and two-time Grammy nominated DJ and Producer, Steve Aoki, release the English version of their collaborative hit “Play it Cool.” On the heels of releasing the Korean version last month, the Aoki-Monsta force keeps fans on their feet with this new English language track. Aoki composed, arranged, and produced this track, alongside co-writer and Monsta X rapper, I.M.

The bouncy piano keys and punchy beat provide the foundation for Aoki’s iconic electro-pop sound, paired with Aoki’s use of Monsta X’s voices, to create texture and build the track as a whole. The initial chorus proclaims “And when you’re dancin’ in my face, I just play it cool,” followed by the lyrics “I love the way that you came over here” repeated over and over again in an edited sped-up hook that is impossible to get out of your head. Steve says, “their [Monsta X] voices dive into your soul”, so it’s no surprise that he would utilize their singing as a fundamental motif and driving force, outside of the vocal leads.

“Monsta X is one of those powerhouse groups that sets the bar very high,” stated Aoki. “Their voices stay with you long after the song is over, and on this track they sang so profoundly that all we had to do was focus on the story we were telling. I really believe in today’s world that we have redefined what love and relationships look like, so I think that this song is one that many people can relate to.”

“It was such an honor to work with Steve Aoki. He is truly an amazing artist and producer. We love how “Play It Cool” turned out at the end so much that we included it in our recent album – Take 2 ‘We Are Here’!” said Monsta X. “After the great success of the Korean version, we can’t wait to see the responses to the English version from all over the world. This collab is a gift from us to our ‘monbebe’ , for always taking care of us and keeping it cool. Thank you.”

Outside of this new collab with Steve, Monsta X have also announced a nineteen-date world tour beginning in April, ending with six U.S. dates. The band will be traveling all the way from South Korea to California throughout the course of their performances, ending at the historic Staples Center. Tickets are on sale Friday March 29th, 4:00PM local; follow the link here for more information. The band’s latest album, Take.2 ‘We Are Here,’ debuted at #5 on Billboard’s World Albums Chart for the week of March 2, 2019; and has been causing an unstoppable wave of interest with notable mentions in Complex, Idolator, Billboard, Cosmopolitan, and NME stating that the album “features some giant leaps forward for the band.” On top of that, the band is currently set to perform as the first K-pop group at the iHeartRadio Music Festival out in Las Vegas on September 21st, 2019.

Jon Bellion’s “Stupid Deep” Video

JON BELLION SHARES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “STUPID DEEP”

Single Is From His New Album, Glory Sound Prep

North American Headline Tour Kicks Off June 12

Today, Jon Bellion revealed the official video for his current single, “Stupid Deep.” The New York-based artist partnered with director Daniel Brown (ODESZA, Portugal. The Man) to weave a mythic tale of self-discovery that is set at sea. Bellion did all the visual effects himself. View “Stupid Deep”  HERE.

Bellion will launch an extensive North American amphitheater tour on June 12 at The Met in Philadelphia. The summer headline run, produced by Live Nation, will include a July 12 concert at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and an August 10 hometown show at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Long Island. See below for itinerary. Tickets are available here.

“Stupid Deep” is from Bellion’s new album, Glory Sound Prep (Capitol Records/Visionary Music Group), which includes collaborations with GRAMMY-winning producer Quincy Jones, Roc Marciano, RZA, B.Keyz and Travis Mendes. Billboard said, “Bellion seamlessly intertwines sounds of pop, R&B, hip-hop and rock through his electrifying songs.” AllMusic praised it as “Epic in scope” and noted, “Glory Sound Prep sees Jon Bellion again alternating effervescent dance-pop, melodic reflections, and more fractured, urgent hip-hop. This time, he draws on an even broader sound palette that incorporates synths, strings, horns and more.”

Bellion got his start with a series of mixtapes featuring his original songs all recorded in his parents’ basement. He built a remarkable following by sharing his music directly with listeners, giving away more than 200,000 free downloads of 2014’s The Definition and playing live for fans on two sold-out national tours.
