Duke Dumont, 360 MAGAZINE

Duke Dumont – Let Me Go

With his highly anticipated debut album less than a month away, multi-platinum-selling artist Duke Dumont has unveiled new single “Let Me Go,” featuring Australian singer-songwriter Ry X, out today via Astralwerks. Listen HERE.

A powerful track steeped in emotion, “Let Me Go” elegantly pairs Ry X’s soaring vocals with cinematic production that gradually builds in intensity before bursting into more club-focused territories.

It follows on from last month’s poignant single “Love Song,” with both tracks set to feature on the Duke’s long-awaited debut album DUALITY, out on April 17th. Channeling his years of experience into a cohesive record that epitomises his core beliefs, the LP is an honest, cathartic expression of his desire to embody the mentality of a true artist, liberated from genre specifics and scored with his own sonic fingerprint. Pre-order Duality HERE.

The multi-Grammy-nominated electronic artist has amassed over 2.5 billion streams across his back-catalogue of previous anthems, scoring platinum-selling UK #1s with timeless records such as “Ocean Drive.”

Citing Pearl Jam and Jeff Buckley as his biggest influences, Ry X has previously collaborated with several talented electronic artists such as Frank Wiedemann and Ame. He formed the band Howling with the former, releasing the album Sacred Ground on Ninja Tune / Monkeytown Records. He has since released two solo albums and toured extensively across Europe and North America.

A truly stunning single, “Let Me Go” delivers a well needed dose of musical escapism during these turbulent times.

Harry Connick, Jr., 360 MAGAZINE

Harry Connick, Jr.

Following the announcement of his album True Love: A Celebration of Cole Porter (Verve Records, October 25), Harry Connick Jr. releases the video for the first single “Just One of Those Things.” Watch the video here.


Directed by Bobby Bruderle, the video showcases an exciting use of MIDI technology to create a visual orchestra. Each time Harry plays a note on the keyboard it sends a signal to the hanging lights surrounding him to synchronize and light up, each note coordinated with a specific light bulb. “This is one of my favorite Cole Porter songs,” says Harry. “It’s actually a sad song, but I had so much fun making the video, I was smiling the whole time… I LOVED the concept and the simplicity of me, some bare light bulbs and a piano.” 

 

After 30 million albums sold worldwide, 13 No. 1 jazz albums in the United States, and a music, film, television and Broadway career spanning three decades, Harry Connick, Jr. returns with a sensational new record, True Love: A Celebration of Cole Porter.


Comprised exclusively of Cole Porter compositions, True Love: A Celebration of Cole Porter highlights Harry’s talents as a pianist, singer, arranger, orchestrator, and conductor, as he breathes life into the popular songs. It is not surprising that Porter would appeal to Harry since, like Harry, he wrote both music and lyrics and redefined what it meant to be the complete songwriter. Harry, whose success in several styles of music as well as film, theater, and television, has similarly reshaped the notion of what it means to be the complete entertainer.

YOUNG BOMBS RELEASE NEW SINGLE “LOYAL” FEATURING GIGI

YOUNG BOMBS RELEASE NEW

SINGLE “LOYAL” FEATURING GIGI TODAY Duo Extend Tour Plans, Hitting Major North American Universities This Fall Listen To “Loyal” Here:

Maintaining momentum for a breakthrough 2019, YOUNG BOMBS share a brand-new single entitled “Loyal” featuring GiGi today. On the track, the acclaimed duo join forces with the buzzing Los Angeles singer and songwriter. Together, they craft a lush and lively love song, flipping convention upside down in the process. Airy synths and cinematic production give way to an unshakable beat as GiGi’s voice flutters on the refrain, “I’ve never been loyal, I’ve always been selfish with my love, was running in circles, but it’s you I run to now.” “‘Loyal’ is a special song to us. On social media we portray ourselves as these crazy guys but deep down we are both pretty emotional. ‘Loyal’ feels like a diary entry where someone’s deepest and darkest self-reflections are realized and in turn, put them on the path of identifying true love. It’s about being honest with yourself and putting someone else’s happiness before everything. It also has a sick ass drop,” says Young Bombs. GiGi adds her perspective saying,

“‘Loyal’ is about the desire to change from selfish love to selfless love. It’s about finding that one person who makes you want to better yourself, to stop being self-destructive and love completely. Personally, it was about ditching the bad habits I used to self-sabotage and ruin past relationships. I found someone who was so inherently good and who treated me with so much compassion, respect, and love that I didn’t want to stray.” Be on the lookout for the premiere of the music video very soon. “Loyal” follows up a series of scorching singles from Young Bombs. Between the original version and remixes, the empowering anti-bullying anthem “Don’t Let Them” racked up over 2 million total streams. Listen to “Don’t Let Them” Remixes HERE, featuring reworkings by The Small Things, Flyboy, Façade, Weirdos and Jake Wolfe. The track continues to climb at dance radio with adds at Sirius XM and iHeart Evolution. Meanwhile, their debut “Starry Eyes” is nearing 5 million total streams. “Starry Eyes” was selected as both the iHeart Canada “Future Star” and Rogers “One To Watch” – the two biggest airplay programs for a new single in Canada, which has earned them a top 15 record and climbing at Top 40 radio. Additionally, the pair received the praise of Billboard, Idolator, and more. Not to mention, they ignited the Main Stage at ULTRA Music Festival earlier this year.

Following multiple shows this month including a gig at Auburn University in Auburn, AL. Young Bombs hit the road for numerous dates across North America, kicking off September 4 in Oshawa, ON at Ontario Tech University. Check out the full confirmed itinerary below. In 2019, Young Bombs make the bold leap from sought-after remixers to artists. That leap remains driven by a personal and creative chemistry forged way back in the Vancouver high school where they became best friends. With nearly 100 million streams in four years, the duo of Martin and Tristan cooked up 53 remixes by 2018.

Along the way, they lent their talents to everyone from Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, and Lady Gaga to Billie Eilish, Alessia Cara, Post Malone, Khalid, and Bazzi. In addition, they attracted the support of Tiësto, Kygo, and Don Diablo. Simultaneously, they graced the stages of blockbuster festivals such as Lollapalooza, Ultra, Firefly Music Festival, and the Billboard Hot 100 Festival. Not to mention, Young Bombs supported The Chainsmokers, Galantis, Diplo, and Alesso on tour around the globe and launched a coveted residency at Drai’s Beachclub in Vancouver.
