Øneheart & Kazukii – haunted

Now, after recently making his Monstercat Silk debut, this gifted producer returns with Kazukii for their second single, “haunted”, out on Tuesday, September 19.
RYL0 – What U Need
Underground pop singer-songwriter RYL0 is an expert world builder. Since releasing her dual mixtapes I’m the Best!! and I’m the Worst!! – alter ego projects that showcase the artist’s refined narrative sensibilities – she’s folded a passionate community into her ever-expanding sonic network. After finding footing in the Internet Music/hyperpop community, she’s kept those fans through each era due to a consistent stream of colorful, melodic songwriting; charismatic vocal deliveries; and diverse choice of experimental electronic instrumentals.
Now, RYL0 unveils “What U Need,” a spellbinding synth-pop track featuring hyperpop artist B4DFRi3ND (their third collaboration following “F4r from Perf3ct” and “Let It Go“) and singer-songwriter/DJ and model ko aka koala, and produced by Gold record-producer Taydex (Joji, Jon Batiste, Dawn Richard), and XG-collaborator Xansei.

Super Future – Crimson EP
Up-and-coming bass star Super Future releases his new Crimson EP, out now via Rezz’s HypnoVizion.
An exhilarating four-track exploration through Super Future’s wubs and dubs, Crimson unlocks the diverse spectrum of musical inspirations threaded throughout his bass-heavy aesthetic. From the rock-leaning melodies of the titular track ‘Crimson’ to the sassy rap vocals of ‘Penthouse’, Crimson sees Super Future continuing to carve his own lane with his unique, genre-fusing style. Filled with the charismatic, festival-ready energy present throughout his catalog, the EP features Super Future’s previously released saucy single ‘Bassline’ with Wreckno, along with new collaborative tracks with rising acts MontyCler and rSUN. Dramatic and daring, Crimson satiates the senses with its hard-hitting basslines, punchy vocals, and crisp percussion, and aligns with the ethos of Rezz’s quick-rising label HypnoVizion.
Ternion Sound – Artifice
In the aftermath of their acclaimed return to Infrasound, Ternion Sound unleashes their highly-anticipated single, “Artifice.” This release serves as an enthralling precursor to their groundbreaking album, Digital Artifice, set for release on Friday, October 13th via Noisia’s eminent VISION label. But “Artifice” is more than a mere introduction; it echoes the trio’s commitment to challenging both industry conventions and the skewed balance between audiences and their digitally consumed music.
UnderLux – We Can All Go
Genre-hopping producer/DJ UnderLux has an ever-evolving artistic persona.
Since he started composing and performing music at a young age, UnderLux has shape-shifted through various musical genres, having begun in pop-punk before producing his own beats. With an electronic sound informed by his love for electro-soul, house, and bass music, the dynamic producer has garnered a fervent Denver fanbase endeared to his emotive and experimental soundscapes – a style that has led to collaborations with artists such as Maddy O’Neal, Vincent Antone, Homemade Spaceship, and MIDIcinal; a performance at the official Pretty Lightspre-party at Cervantes’ Other Side; and sets at and clubs such as JING Las Vegas, DAYLIGHT Beach Club, and Club Blue in Bogota, Colombia.
Now, listeners can get their first taste of the EP with “We Can All Go,” a hypnotic trance track that focuses on weaving lush tapestries of sound as opposed to over indulging on distracting production flourishes. With propulsive rhythms and rich, melodic synth layers, “We Can All Go” evokes a transcendent, euphoric dance floor experience.
