New York City producer Squired and mystery producer juuku team up for an emotionally powerful new collaboration entitled, Reaching For U. This collaboration has brought the best of both worlds, with an emotional build up to what we call a future bass drop that you will not forget. Juuku & Squired combine both their production skills, with a explosion of chords combined with the perfectly acquired heavy hitting drums. This is a collab you won’t want to miss.
“It’s wild how we change throughout the years, gaining and leaving parts of ourselves along the way. When Squired sent the demo to me, I felt so much emotional resonance to it. I wanted to build onto this track the experiences I’ve had finding and losing pieces of myself throughout my own journey. I heard Chloe out sheer serendipity and immediately fell in love with her singing. I’m so glad it all worked out – she drove the balance of the hopeless / hopeful emotions so beautifully on our track.”- juuku
“This track is the product of what started as a personal therapeutic journey for me during a time when I felt pretty emotionally and creatively clouded. I sent the demo over to my good friend juuku and he immediately connected with the idea. He and Chloe worked their magic and we created the ‘Reaching for U’ that you hear today!” – Squired

With artistic capabilities and talent ranging across a texturedsoundscape, Midoca euphoniously pairs ambient, layered productions with his own melancholy vocals – conveying pure, raw emotion within every fleeting bar.
I Can’t Keep Up With You is a perfect example of what Midoca brings to the table. A song about when someone of a higher presence takes advantage of you. I Can’t Keep Up With You portrays a soothing tone, with the elegant notes playing something which puts you into a state of relaxation.
“‘I Can’t Keep Up With You’ was written after realizing I was being taken advantage of by someone in a higher position of power. I was angry and disappointed, but the separation was freeing. The uplifting energy from the songs production came from that feeling of levity.” – Midoca

Just picture a fire house party where you and your mates are just having a great time, loads of booze and some banging tunes. But then suddenly you hear those sirens outside your house, next thing you hear is COPS!!! Well this is exactly what TRICKR was trying to recreate in this monster of a track. Using a bouncy bassline over a slick groovy house beat, COPS creates a great party vibes. (listen carefully and you might hear those sirens yourself)
“‘COPS’ is really about that moment when the police show up to break up a wild house party, you know…that ‘oh shit it’s the COPS’ moment. I got inspired by some old dancehall/reggaeton records and the way they use sirens as an instrument, so I wanted to make a track that used sirens as a sort of sonic theme. All the sirens reminded me of the days when my friends and I would throw house parties that would usually end up getting busted by the police, and that’s when pieces really started to come together. The track is meant to be fun and quirky but also dark, and heavy.“ – TRICKR
an age where music producers have access to many of the same samples, coming
across the new and original sounds in Slow Shudder’s debut project, “Off The
Rails” was a true breath of fresh air. The woman behind Slow Shudder, Amanda
Mayo, is a well-travelled producer, DJ, vocalist & songwriter who put all
of her skills to the test with this EP. Her soft vocals and clean percussion
unify the five tracks, but each single has its own character.
speaking about her work, Amanda said, “I wanted it to feel both familiar and
fresh at the same time, with pop structures that feel comfortable and fun, but
sounds that are surprising and make you think ‘What the hell was that?!’”
While each track plays into this idea, the best example is with “Ideal Future” which
calls back to alternative classics while turning the usual formula on its head
to create something completely new.
The best moments in this fifteen minute journey come from those quirky samples that Slow Shudder collected. Many of the sounds, especially the percussion and FX, were recorded straight from her phone. This attention to detail and extra care put into each of the five songs is readily apparent and the key takeaway to what makes “Off The Rails” such a special release.
As she carry’s on her rampant success with her previous single ‘Drunk And I Miss You,’ the multifaceted KIDDO returns with her latest, addictive sound. The Scandinavian’s previous cuts (most recently a collaboration with Gashi on ‘Coming Down’) have seen extensive global playlist support, hitting no less than 34 NMF adds upon release and hitting over 11 million streams.
Dead Alive,’ is a stunning old fashioned piece, combining a heavy bass driven beat with an old vintage style piano. The video really does portray the single itself with its old retro feel to it, you can stream Dead Alive below:
“Life is too short. So don’t treat it like you have all the time in the world. Being alive does not mean you live. Lately I was saying to myself, I would rather die than to be dead alive.” – KIDDO
“Death Wish” is the perfect track to kick of the month of Halloween, with the spooky leads building up to a grungy dubstep drop. Next we have “Gyroscope” has its side of simplistic, but also that is why this single is so great ! “Face Off” offers up further hypnotic vox and reverbing snatches of bass. “Failure Rate” sets you into trippy state with its wonk synths and basslines. “MAD,” a relentlessly explosive end to the varied collection.
Wooked on Tronics EP’ sees Subtronics fusing the elements of weird bass with heavy dubstep – exploring the space where fractals and kaleidoscopic soundscapes crash headlong into musical electricity bolts and sonic computer glitches.

Los Angeles based producer and composer Chaz Treharne aka Modica. The phenomenal artist has created an astounding piece, between releases on Monstercat, Lowly Palace, Seeking Blue, being featured on Taska Black’s Minds EP as well as appearing on Getter’s debut album Visceral via mau5trap. He was also supporting on Getter’s VISCERAL LIVE tour & Jai Wolf’s The Cure To Loneliness tour, Midoca is making a statement for himself in 2019. His new single Dry Roses has created a song filled with emotion which takes you through a path of everlasting reminder that even in moments of pain, we can emerge stronger and more in tune than before.
Dry The Rose’ is about the immortalization and acceptance of a passing relationship. To ‘clip off the thorns and dry the rose,’ is to release the pain of what once was but preserve what was learned and experienced. The love is no longer alive but I can hold a memento and memory of it with admiration.- Midoca
