Today Swedish indie-rockers Kaskelott release their haunting and beautiful music video/short film “Flourish” by director Eric Ivar Persson. Definitely worth watching! It is a melancholic homage to 90s Sweden, old school sci-fi and longing away.
"Late Bloomer" was recorded by James Whitten (Pears, Thou, Gland, Donovan Wolfington) and mastered by Carl Saff. Static Masks are a four piece with two vocalists. They tend to get put in the math rock, shoegaze, indie categories. With a goal to make "interesting" and "beautiful" music, Static Masks blend melody and complexity with some nontraditional song structures to create their own version of progressive pop music.
DYLYN just released her new single “Secret” and it’s now available to stream and share on Soundcloud/Spotify.
"This one is personal. My life was turned upside down and as a result this song emerged. “Secret” became therapeutic, it helped me deal with this crazy thing that happens to so many people, yet often remains a taboo subject; especially in song. Writing this new single gave me a chance to connect with people, with my fans whose parents also split up due to infidelity; it became a way of reaffirming for myself and others, "you are not the only one going through this." My last single “Mimosa” and now “Secret” are both authentically me. Though deeply personal, I’m excited to be sharing this side of myself with the world."
Los Angeles, CA – Returning to Dim Mak with a vengeance, the bass house trio known as BROHUG unleash their Knuckles EP. The record’s title track, premiered by YourEDM, brings thumping horns and a grimey bassline to the forefront, while "Guns Go Boom” goes the tech house route, using rhythmic hi-hat hits and vocal chops to propel this energetic B-side.
Since joining the scene only a little over a year ago, BROHUG has ignited music fans around the world with their unique sound that merges tough bass house with deep and techy flourishes. Via early releases on Spinnin’ Records and Mad Decent’s Good Enough, BROHUG set the path for their innovative take on modern club music. The Swedish trio kicked off 2017 by dropping their Giggle Juice EP on Dim Mak. The release hit #2 on the Beatport Electro House Releases chart and received praises from heavy-hitters Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Afrojack and many more. They followed this up with an official release of Alesso’s “Falling,” which has garnered over 130K online streams to date.
This summer BROHUG is excited to bring the energy of Giggle Juice and Knuckles to North American audiences. Catch them at Electric Forest in Rothbury, MI and stay tuned for further tour announcements.

"Light Of The East EP" is like a tribute to Japan, its rich culture and heritage. Through dreamy atmospheres and intricate melodies, this EP tries to convey different emotions you can experience when you think about or even literally visit various places in Japan such as Mt. Fuji, Osaka, Kyoto and the Akihabara district in Tokyo. Sonically, the instrumental EP borders around ambient and post-rock while taking influences from indie rock, alternative rock and shoegaze music.

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
