KAZY LAMBIST – BE YOURSELF (Electro/House – France)

Young beat maker and producer Kazy Lambist has been wowing audiences in his native France since 2015, dropping consistently brilliant remixes (Moi Je, Sarah Blasko) and dancefloor friendly originals and garnering critical acclaim from the likes of indie trendsetters Les Inrocks for his breezy blend of synth pop and house.

Kazy Lambist recently shared infectious new single “Be Yourself”, a refreshing  slice of laid back house with dance-inducing grooves, snappy beats and smooth synths. Both “Be Yourself” and its glorious predecessor “Shutdown” will be featured on Kazy Lambist’s forthcoming debut LP, which is scheduled for release later this year.

THE FAMILIAR – PATIENCE (Synth/Electro – Norway)

Norwegian electro duo The Familiar captures the haunting icy rhythms of the Arctic Circle in magical and lush soundscapes that redefine genre boundaries. Norwegian-American vocalist Ruth Mirsky and Tromsø-based multi instrumentalist Mads Martinsen conjure up the uncanny darkness of winters with no sun and the unyielding light of summers with no night.

Taken off their 2016 EP Seconds, single “Patience” is a modern, yet intimate slice of gloomy synthpop, weaving together Mirsky’s poignant plea for patience and Martinsen’s pulsating, synth-driven beat. This irresistible tune definitely hits all the right buttons, confirming The Familiar’s position in the Scandi alt-electro scene.
