Portland-based producer, Manatee Commune continues to establish his legacy with his forthcoming single, “I Can Dream” featuring female vocalist Effee . A classically trained musician inspired by the likes of Sylvan Esso, Big Wild, Flume, and many more, Manatee Commune is a captivating producer and vibrant performer. Having toured with household names like ODESZA, Emancipator, and Blockhead, while commanding stages at Bonnaroo, What The Festival, Capitol Hill Block Party, and the upcoming 2019 Lighting In A Bottle Festival, Manatee Commune delivers an experience to dance music aficionados worldwide.
“This track came together when the first warmth of spring actually started to reveal itself. I had just moved to Portland and the whole city just exploded with cherry blossoms and daffodils, so grabbed my laptop and an acoustic guitar, laid out in the park and crafted what I thought was just a goofy little beat that I’d never use. But when Effee and I started working together, I immediately thought of that day and how wonderful her voice would sound nestled in the bright, peaceful production of this unfinished song. Just a week or so later she sent me back these lyrics that perfectly captured the carefree, sunny mid-morning essence that had originally inspired me.“ – Manatee Commune
His charming production leans toward the emotive side of electronic music while simultaneously stamping his own signature on all of his feats. His cuts are mastered arrangements of field recordings, textures from nature, lush guitar licks, rolling arpeggiated sine waves, and classically influenced viola melodies. “I Can Dream” is a complete tapestry of romantically-charged resonance, breathing a new life into electronic-pop. Continuously improving on his already impressive discography that boasts over 20 million streams on Spotify, this forthcoming single is inked to be another milestone in his pioneering career.
Straight from the vibrant town of New Orleans, Luxley’s latest EP, ‘Chromatics’, showcases a rather rare experience that is certain to intrigue and delight.
Most people write by sound. Luxley, however, writes by colour. This is because he has Chromasthesia, a condition that causes him to unconsciously associate sounds with colours.
Attiki – The opening track sets the mood with lush sounds that invoke the feeling of a dreamy soundscape with modern electronic production. The track showcases rich and interesting textures, building to a trance inducing vibe. The listener is immersed into a colourful world from the first few notes!
Dreamcatcher – Luxley creates a driving force with a gorgeous blend of synth-pop and layers upon layers of sounds. Production quality is high and compliments the opening track with a driving rhythm section and some classic sampled vocal chops.
Near Me – A melancholy marimba with a haunting vocal sample layers into a funky house style bass. ‘Near Me’ continues to impress with a nice build and highlights the nature of a fluid, yet consistent dubstep throwback in the main section.
No. 4 – Certainly a standout track on the EP. Capturing a low-key, yet anthemic number with Luxley’s addition of some gorgeous vocal processing reveals a powerful main section to the song that is sure to turn heads and move a crowd.
Shine – Mid tempo dance number. Luxley finds an interesting balance between 8-bit sounds and a Flume-esque lead and bass. This track will certainly be on high repeat.
Take A Chance – A synth odyssey and a chunky mix of layers. ‘Take A Chance’ is driving and sprinkled with upbeat soul vocals. A touch of 2000’s Deadmau5 is certainly apparent in areas, and amounts to an eclectic mix of sounds before fading a minimal house beat. The closing track delivers the EP well with a solid resolve.
Overall, ’Chromatics’ offers a window into Luxley’s unique view on the world of sound, and captures a pure rainbow of soul-touching, sonic richness. With his self-described, “Chromasthetic” style and blend of electronic genres to create a tasty experiential music journey, Luxley will no doubt be an artist to watch.
Having released Get Low last month racking in 100k+ streams in 2 weeks, Fabian has returned with a bang. The Danish producer is known for his exceptional productions and crazy sound design, with On Fire he has shown that with the best of his ability. On Fire is a dark and groovy track, complementing different genres into one masterpiece. With merging energetic Drum & Bass breaks accompanied with vocals from Fabian himself, which builds into a bouncy trap drop. This is a track which is going to hit the clubs by storm !
“On Fire was a track I made on a late winter’s night in a basement in Copenhagen. I started making the break synths because I wanted to make a big melodic track and that’s where I ran it through a modulator by accident and all of a sudden I had this cool wobbly idea. The track pretty much builds itself up from there, I recorded the drop and vocals from there in the same night. I really wanted to make a bass driven track so I could see people bobbing their heads and bouncing” – Fabian Mazur

Hey Levianth, thank you for taking the time to chat with us! Loving the new release, can you tell us how that song came about?
Hello guys! I first started this song with a really emotional melody I was playing in the piano and immediately thought of how I could build a whole high energy track around it which I did the same day.
With Unbroken you have chosen to release this single with Enter Records, how did you find out about them and what are your expectations for the label as a whole?
I really enjoy releasing with Enter Records as a gamer myself providing all the gamers and streamers with royalty free music. I found out about them a few months ago when they were launching and decided to send them some demos I had been working on and eventually they were excited about my music and personal style and then decided to release a few tracks of mine. It’s great to see my tracks being played on the ESL tournaments which a lot of people watch and that’s great exposure for my music and brand as well.
You have many outstanding release under your belt, Is there a track you enjoyed making the most or that you are most proud of ?
Thank you appreciate that! Although I’ve produced numerous releases and have achieved to receive more than 10 million Spotify streams, the tracks I’m most proud of are some of the singles I have on my hard drive which are still works in progress but they really showcase my signature sound that I have been developing for more than 7 years producing music. If i had to choose from one of the tracks i have already released i’d say its Another Day.
What do you think the future of gaming and music will hold? Do you have any aspirations or goals you want to aim for in that realm?
I think gaming is becoming really big and will continue to expand rapidly in the following years. Music has always been highly connected to gaming as many gamers and streamers enjoy listening to their favourite tracks while playing. Royalty free music like the tracks I have been releasing on Enter Records get a lot of support from the gaming scene and I think is something to keep in mind as well for the future because it really helps your music reach more real-life listeners. One of my goals is to perform at a big e-sports tournament in the future.
