NGHTMRE & GUNNA – CASH COW
After working with A$AP Ferg on ‘REDLIGHT,’ collaborating with Lil Jon and Shaq on ‘Bang,’ and linking with ZHU on “Man’s First Inhibition,” and closing out both weekends of Coachella, NGHTMRE continues his momentous year with another addictive rap cut. Opening with serene synth melodies and subtle guitar flicks, ‘CASH COW’ develops with luxe energy and swagger. Gunna rolls off bars as NGHTMRE accentuates the track’s progression with his signature detail and sharp percussive notes.
GERMANY GERMANY – DAWN
In his second offering ahead of full album release, Germany Germany unveils a stunning new “Dawn.” Ever evolving and ever changing, Germany Germany finds himself growing now more than ever in his budding career. Upon moving to a new city, the musician took it upon himself to become “someone new” and step outside of any boundaries he imposed upon himself. His newest musical endeavor, “Dawn,” is no different. A track born out of the desire to escape the confines of our own heads, Germany Germany provides a mellifluous second-coming of change.
MIDOCA – DRY THE ROSE EP [MAU5TRAP]
After two dynamic single releases, Midoca reveals his Dry The Rose EP, the artist’s most sonic work to date. Five honest tracks serve as the LA-based creative’s growth and becoming. A search for vulnerability and understanding, Dry The Rose is Midoca’s personal promise of letting go and learning. An open testament to modern relationships and the struggles in conforming to them, Midoca’s EP is reflective and sincere. After losing an important relationship some years back, Midoca began his pursuit of understanding his personal shortcomings, and Dry The Rose is his mellifluous tale of just that: “I’ve spent a few years now in therapy learning about myself and what led me to having the perspective I had of myself and what I was deserving of.”
AE:THER – ME [CROSSTOWN REBELS]
German/Italian DJ and producer Ae:ther – primarily known for his recent contribution to Afterlife’s Realm Of Consciousness 4 and his standout remix of Damian Lazarus’s ‘You’re All I Need (To Get High) – has officially released his debut album, Me, on Lazarus’ label, Crosstown Rebels. A polished and meticulously produced collection of his signature melodies and deep, hypnotic rhythms, Me showcases Ae:ther’s unparalleled ability to experiment with hard driven synths to invoke a plethora of emotions.
