Berlin based artist Still Parade, aka Niklas Kramer, and his dream-funk track “07:41” takes you to a nostalgic beauty, painted in pastel, hidden in a corner of your heart. The hazy track captures similar traits of Tame Impala, with a softer and genuine production, that is obsessively addicting. Straying away from previous folk sounds, Kramer’s journey of finding his voice, and experimenting with different recording techniques will become visible by 2016, with the release of his debut album.

“07:41 is about this weird feeling when you’re new somewhere. you feel like a stranger and no one really seems to care about you. But there’s also the chance to build up something new. It’s the point when you just don’t know what’s going to happen. Can’t be quite scary and exciting at the same time.”

Dipped in Indie-pop, Little White Things, who recently signed with Chess Club Records,  bring their latest single “Step Back” to our eager ears. Currently residing in London, David Behan and Max Bergstrom, cultivate dreamy chords, and breezy vocals that set-up an insanely memorable chorus. Hints of guitars peak in and out of vocals, and layering of sounds create an audible experience that breaks the shell for the emerging artists.

20-year-old, London local RYD, released his latest song “Scintillate” and captures the senses through his ambient production. The four-minute track is at a slower tempo, with a foundation that echos as the track rises, and speaks highly for the production value of the young musician.

Los Angeles natives –  Brayden Pierce (vocals, guitar), Matt Walerstein (Keys), Eric Slater (Guitar), Justin Gariano (Bass), and Dusty Schaller (Drums) – better known as Kingdoms, caught out attention with their cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.”  The cover is a dreamier, electronic rendition of Drake’s hit that adds depth to the original concept of a “late night call,” while the delicate chimes guided by Pierce’s vocals reinvent the track and invite listeners to explore more of Kingdoms’ electronic tracks.
