VASKI – SQUAD
Vaski is back after a period of reflection and reinvention, gracing listeners with his feel-good return to music in “Squad.” In a constant endeavor to push himself and the boundaries of his music, “Squad” comes as Vaski’s most sonic work to date.

Chock-full of captivating synths, the melodic track sees both dynamic sound design and empowering lyrics from start to finish. “Squad” is just the start of Vaski’s musical reinvention, with plenty more to come.
MIDOCA – I CAN’T KEEP UP WITH YOU [MAU5TRAP]

Soft croonings of falling behind rest beautifully upon blissful guitar as Midoca weaves acoustic elements into his already emotionally captivating backsound. A raw display of the LA-based creative’s immense versatility, “I Can’t Keep Up With You” beckons listeners in with intoxicating lyricism, and holds with sweet soundscapes prepared to pull on heartstrings. A thoughtful revelation of the need for change, “I Can’t Keep Up With You” is a freeing ballad, and comes as a powerful reminder to respect our own self-worth.
