GUNDELACH – GARDEN (Disco – Norway)

Gundelach
Norwegian artist Gundelach is back with his first new single since the release of his debut EP last year. The track is titled “Garden” and it’s a bumpy disco track anchored by strong vocals and a smooth-as-silk bassline that rolls like a tidal wave.

“Garden” marks a new chapter for Gundelach: the first single in a string of new collaborations from his forthcoming debut LP, it was co-produced with John Calvert (NAO, Ghostpoet) and co-written by Norwegian hip-hop producer Aksel Carlsen (Unge Ferrari, Arif).

Following performances at major summer festivals such as Roskilde and Øya, as well as sold out shows at theater-sized venues, his debut EP was nominated for Pop Album at Norway’s Grammy equivalent (Spellemann Awards). International recognition has also led to shows across Europe and heavy radio play in Germany and the UK.

Bonus track: “Fjernsynet”

WAYFARER & LANKS – BROKEN WIRE (Electronic/Pop – Australia)

Wayfarer

Wayfarer// is a product of the burgeoning production and beats scene from Melbourne, Australia. Joining the city’s growing output of musician-producers who meld dusty samples with live instruments and synths, Wayfarer// is building a new unique sound. His brand new tune “Broken Wire” features guest vocals by fellow Melburnian singer/songwriter Will Cuming aka LANKS.

In 2016, the stunning remixes he produced for LANKS (‘Golden Age’) and Woodes (‘Daggers & Knives’) helped put the young beat-maker on the radar, getting a few mentions on trend-setting blogs downunder, as well as some airplay on Triple J. Since the beginning of the year, he has released three singles and racked in over 100K plays on SoundCloud — and counting!

XAN YOUNG – HONEST (Pop/Electro – US)

Xan Young

Having spent years embedded in collaborative projects, Brooklyn-based artist Xan Young is now flying solo, with a project that represents his unadulterated voice, the product of years of maturation in experimental pop and club music.

Sonically, his new track “Honest” thumps with a driving bassline topped by crystalline soulful vocals and waves of blazing synthesizers. Young showcases his talent as both a songwriter and producer on this new release.

GOLDEN VESSEL – SHOULDERS (Alt/RnB – Australia)

Golden Vessel

Rising Australian multi-talented artist Golden Vessel (born Max Byrne) is back with “Shoulders”, the latest preview of his second EP. Released in collaboration with Exist Recordings (a label founded by none other than The Kite String Tangle), “Shoulders” sees the Brisbane-based producer venture further into soundscapes mixing sultry R&B and future electronica with a sprinkling of hip-hop edge.

Influenced by Flume, James Blake or Chet Faker, Byrne’s smooth blend of bouncy down-tempo beats and wonky synths create the perfect backdrop for some seriously infectious vocals provided by fellow Brisbanites, and accomplished artists in their own right, Elkkle and Mallrat. A match made in heaven if there ever was one!
