London Topaz returns again with his brand new single ‘Stay’ (ft. Blush’ko) via Daily Nightly Records.

‘Stay’ (ft. Blush’ko) is an ambient ethereal journey featuring the signature London Topaz artistic elegance with a stripped back introduction that then subtly builds around layers of vocals and synth and encapsulates the raw vocals of the unmistakable Blush’ko.

“The essence of the story is taking ownership for your own growth and development in a relationship, not relying on another’s energy to hold you up. Times can get hard when two individuals have a strong purpose although if a strong foundation of love and understanding is there you can push through any adversity.”Blush’ko

With a style reminiscent of top-tier electronic artists such as RÜFÜS DU SOL and Hayden James, his releases have caught the attention of dance music enthusiasts globally with well over a million Spotify streams and recent performances at Beyond the Valley and For The Love alongside RÜFÜS DU SOL.

Via his musicality, production values and delicate vocal construct, London Topaz manages to take electronic music fans through an emotive journey.

After emerging in 2017, London Topaz cemented his name as one of Australia’s top emerging talents with the soulful foundations of ‘Let You Go’ featuring JANEVA and ‘Midnight’ featuring Georgia van Etten, both attaining over half a million streams respectively. His next two singles ‘Your Eyes’ alongside Dena Amy and ‘Hideout’ featuring Leone Kingdom caught the attention of dance music enthusiasts globally and garnered worthy plays and airtime.

Developing his sonic brand and dance floor mood, the London Topaz profile raises its own bar, affirming a well-paved path for this promising, prolific artist.

But instead of sitting idle he got to work in the studio and explored his own influences – with the result being put on display on Unreality. “This album is a moment in time, directly influenced by the strangest couple of years in modern history. I don’t think I could have made it any other way. I hope it connects with you all as much as creating it kept me happy and occupied while everything faded away.

    • Saudi’s Top Female DJ Cosmicat Releases Debut Vocal Underground Single “Toxic Romance” Cosmicat-toxic-romance-2021-oz-edm

      Saudi Arabia’s first and leading female DJ and producer Cosmicat makes her stunning debut with the first-ever single “Toxic Romance,” introducing herself to the global market as a sultry underground queen with both dancefloor and emotive potential. The track uses big-room synths and a rumbling, techno-influenced bassline to contrast exquisitely with her own feathery vocals; in this way, Cosmicat creates a soundscape that is both bold and delicate, personifying her own identity as a female artist who is trailblazing the electronic music scene in a culture that has traditionally forbid women from making any style of music. “Toxic Romance” is only the beginning for Cosmicat, so stay tuned to see what’s next as she establishes herself among electronic’s most exciting rising artists. “When I was working on ‘Toxic Romance,’ all I had on my mind was that I wanted to create the sound I love. It got me romanticizing about my relationship with it, as it’s a human being; how it was there for me every time I needed it or how I always come around to seek and chase it. On the sonic level, I wanted to add a big-sounding synth to make the track sound bold and highlight how synthesizers and electronic music can coexist with gentle whispering and my own vocals. I believe this makes ‘Toxic Romance’ sounding delicate and personal, while still being dancefloor-friendly.” – Cosmicat As she rises from the underground, the world is ready to be introduced to Nouf Sufyani – better known as Cosmicat – as the first and leading Saudi female DJ & producer in the electronic scene. Born and raised in Jeddah, Cosmicat always had a strong passion for music in a world where it was considered taboo; there were limited record and music equipment stores and no live performances. Cultural protocol meant that she had to keep her passion a secret, so Cosmicat worked toward the more realistic 9-5 career but never gave up on her dream of producing. She became a “bedroom DJ” and taught herself everything she needed to know about producing in private. In 2019 she performed at the first music festival in Saudi Arabia – MDLBEAST’s Soundstorm (which was also the biggest in the Middle East). Her reach quickly expanded to Bahrain, Lebanon, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, where she performed, and now she’s gearing up for the release of her debut original single. I believe that Nouf is a perfect example showing that it’s important to be persistent and take the chance whenever it arises. Currently, there are more female DJs in Saudi Arabia who support and empower one another, with Cosmicat being the first/leading one, paving the way for other Saudi female DJs. She also hosts her own TV show. Privately she’s a cat lady (hence the artist’s name). Her personal favorites are Solomun, Peggy Gou, and Jamie Jones. Article image by Khaled Nadershah

    • Tasmanian Duo Sumner Slice Through The Dark With New Single ‘Good Light’ sumner-good-things-2022-oz-edm-feature

      Since joining forces with Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes of PNAU, 2021 produced magical moments for the lutruwita / Tasmania electronic duo Sumner (Chloe Wilson and Jack McLaine). Their breakthrough single ‘Stranded’ become a festival favourite and was voted in the top 200 tracks of triple j’s coveted Hottest 100. The band also gifted us a stunningly cinematic live performance of ‘Stranded’ from a deserted runway when interstate travel and live shows were a fading reality. Back and in form, Sumner’s new single ‘Good Light’ is a leap forward for the duo, who captured our hearts and attention just 18 months ago. A pulsing dance anthem preaching the undeniable connection between artist and audience, ‘Good Light’ showers listeners in a message of love and support during such trying times. In their latest release Sumner show off their signature electro-pop essence heard in previous singles ‘Stranded’ and ‘South’. “’Good Light’ is an ode for our audience members and listeners,” explain Sumner. “It explores our devotion to them, alongside an offering of mutual understanding in regard to the way our bleak futures on Earth are heading. It’s an invitation to come in and let go of life’s mundane and monotonous stresses; lose yourself in the moment with us while we lose ourselves in you.” Opening up about her history with epilepsy last year, Chloe’s defining message was toward live shows becoming a more inclusive environment for all people to be safe. A theme uniquely presented in the lyrics of ‘Good Light’, which was co-written and produced with Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes (PNAU, Empire of the Sun). Sumner detail the writing process behind ‘Good Light’: “The track came to fruition in a writing session with Nick and Chloe in 2021. The whole team felt that the track was a standout from the start, and so it was passed on to Peter and Jack to polish it off. The result is a pulsating, electric record driven by real emotion and life experience.”  “’Good Light’ is about our dedication to our art and our audience. The music video follows the progression of fire, from its ignition into an intense flame. Through years of being in conversation and growing with our audience, we gradually become our truest form as individuals and learn more about who we all are as a people. To us, the fire signifies that reciprocal thing that we’ve created together which continues to grow. The video was shot on 16mm film over the course of a manic weekend in lutruwita / Tasmania. Directed by Jacob Collings, with cinematography by Ursula Woods, assisted by Robert Agostino, we shot a combination of studio and on-location footage, combining the real and surreal.” Sumner are the third signing to Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes’ Lab78 label with Nick Littlemore first coming across Jack and Chloe at a festival in Tasmania. “Pete and I came across this band while on tour in regional Tasmania. We shared a stage together at the Forth pub on a sweet breezy day a few years back. We were struck by their fierce intensity. Chloe commanded the stage conjuring notes of Chrissie Hynde, Iggy Pop and Karen Finley. Jack the uber-cool, multi-instrumental wonder dazzling on any synth/bass or guitar he picks up and plays.”  Sumner’s debut release on Lab78, ‘Stranded’, was a breakthrough moment for the duo, hitting the top 30 on Shazam nationally, top 5 on the Spotify Viral chart, receiving a full addition to triple j and amassing two million streams. Following on from their second release ‘South’, ‘Good Light’ is the latest piece of the puzzle in the Sumner story and will be available on Lab78 from July 1st. Sure to be a fantastic addition to Sumner’s exhilarating live shows, you can catch Sumner at Wine Machine Festival in South Australia this December.

It’s definitely one of the most banging tracks on the record—we referenced some of our favorite club music for the drum programming and had fun envisioning the time when we could finally play this live. It had an amazing reaction at our Red Rocks shows last month which was really special for us.” – RÜFÜS DU SOL Arriving via the Aussie trio’s own Rose Avenue Records, as well as Reprise/Warner Records, “On My Knees” finds RÜFÜS DU SOL leaning into the darker sounds that have so frequently conferred a contemplative character to their back catalog, from the song’s lyrical narrative to its technical framework.

    • Kult Kyss’ Release Euphoric New Single ‘So Alive’ kult-kyss-so-alive-oz-edm-feature

      Melbourne electronic duo Kult Kyss are back with a captivating new track, ‘So Alive’, produced alongside acclaimed Australian producer LUCIANBLOMKAMP. Created in the depths of lockdown, vocalist Rromarin and producer Haxx have conjured pure magic with ‘So Alive’, creating a hypnotic track that yearns to uplift the spirits of everyone it comes across. ‘So Alive’ is lifted from Kult Kyss’ upcoming debut EP Ultra Sound, set for release in November and also featuring collaborations with the likes of BRUX and Motez.  Kult Kyss explains, “‘So Alive’ was born in the midst of the pandemic, at a time when things felt incredibly limited and uncertain. The experience of being in lockdown forced us to shift our perspectives from constantly looking towards the future to living fully in the present. ‘So Alive’ is inspired by this, and explores the magic and beauty that can be found in living in the moment, day by day. In creating the track we wanted to pay homage to early ‘90s dance music, incorporating dusty sampled breaks with euphoric synths and a simple, mantra-like vocal hook. We were also fortunate enough to work with our friend LUCIANBLOMKAMP (who has produced for Khalid & US-rapper 6LACK) on additional production, who brought his signature gritty 2-step sound to the track.” ‘So Alive’ is an extension of the Kult Kyss sound that we’ve come to know and love over the last few years.
