Check out ‘Lamba’, the latest single from afrobeat/dancehall/house fusion artist Bimbi Philips! Well worth wrapping your ears around if you’re looking for something to throw some shapes too!
It’s not often that you get to hear music coming from Iran, but it’s a refreshing change to see what’s happening musically in other parts of the world as electronic artist, Vispa, drops his retro-infused dance track, ‘Cosmic Force’.
You wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that ‘Cosmic Force’ is straight out of an 80s video game with its pulsating drum beat, resonating synths and sense of tension building. But this is perhaps the best part of Vispa’s music; his ability to draw on style of old and bring them into the modern day.
Not only this, but there’s certainly a dance factor to his music, made all the better with the expertly timed drops and changes in instrumentation throughout the track.
However, much like ‘Cosmic Force’ is a true space-explorer of a track, Vispa is an explorer of music himself, constantly experimenting with genre and sound to gain more ideas for his new material.
Categorising his sound under the sub-genres of ‘synth-pop’, ‘space music’ and ‘electro-orchestral’, Vispa finds inspiration from all over the musical world, taking influence from other notable artists such as classical legend Hans Zimmer, Tangerine Dream, Depeche Mode and synth icons, The Pet Shop Boys.
‘Run’ is the infectious new track from Brooklyn musician Tony Banks, who fuses a potent combination of house, dance and hip-hop that is carving his own space in the music industry.
EarthTone and JwlB also feature on the track, where Tony exhibits some of his best raps alongside a pulsating beat that echoes the title of the song.
Tony is an artist who takes inspiration from all over the musical world, but most notably, Missy Elliot, Michael Jackson and Andre 3000. As a result, Banks has formed a style like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Tony himself describes his sound as ‘Move ya feet, feel good’ music and it is easy to see why upon listening to ‘Run’.
‘Run’ is taken from Tony’s upcoming EP, Yes Homo.
