Valentin Rieff, better known as Rival has been acknowledged for taking melodic future bass to the next level, he has proven this with his recent releases such as “Control” surpassing 1m streams in its first month on Spotify, “Thinking of You” a self-release placed on New Music Friday in 18 countries and many other releases making huge play counts.

He has teamed up with Irish vocalist Conor Byrne, who adds a rustic feel to this emotional masterpiece. Conor has made a name for himself by creating covers to then slowly move to releasing on labels such as Sony, Universal, Spinnin Records and more.

Lately kicks off in a calm orchestral fashion, combining Conor’s smooth vocals with a ballad of strings gracing through the track. This is the best of both worlds with combining Conor’s indie side and Rivals electronic vibe, this is a release you definitely should be streaming non-stop.

Fox Blanco’s latest release is about the tangible energy that builds at the start of something special. It’s something many young people probably have experienced today in the online world.”Its accompanying video has been made by the guys themselves, and allows us to get to see Fox Blanco from a personal perspective. Featuring candid footage of travel, exploring, hangouts and their genuine friendships, it fits the euphoric energy of ‘VR’ perfectly.

“VR’ is about meaningful online relationships and the urge to escape our sometimes challenging world. When responsibilities and real life are calling, you sometimes react by diving straight into a more attractive, virtual world where the weather is good and you have a ton of friends. It feels so real and good, at least for a while.
