Every once in awhile we discover a newfangled talent who dares to be different. Arpionth is the next generation of EDM. Sultry and sensual melodic instrumentation at it’s finest. A swedish phenomenon.
“Hope” thrives on cinematic creativity and indulges all senses. Your heart will pump while waves crash.
“Destiny” opens up with tons of faithful synergy. Once the beat drops so will your soul. Throbbing. Pulsating.
“Origin” marks newfound territory with systemic beats which power through tradition. Being present isn’t enough. To recognize your past is to know your perfection.
“Above” pushes the envelope. Like a bird, the rhythmic cadence will make you flutter. Higher and higher your imagination will float amongst the swarms.
“Fight” treads on fear. Feisty yet temperamental instrumentation will tantalize your inner existence.
“Continue” is a rotational pull. Everlasting and meaningful. Nothing can stand in the room of an orbit.
“Return” is sinister. A notational menstrual cycle.
“Change” is a seasonal reflection of emotions. You can visualize leaves turn from green to amber.
“Then” will transpire your soul. Strings and snares are on a downward spiral romance.
“Past” mimics a crispness of affairs. Up beat and responsive to what’s to come.
“Time” ticks like a elegant piece of machinery. Poignant and peaceful.
“Now” streams the senses. You can actually smell the stark stench of collateral damage.
“Be” proves to be one of the more sensible tracks with an alien-like heart beat. Allow your mind to ramble around a viscous surface. It’s all about building community!
“Clouds” is anthemic. Parallel to a derivative. A heavenly tune erupting with angelic memories.
Arpionth has a special talent to cure a thirsty mind. His ability to chime into uncharted territory is what makes him a big contender for our “360 Watchlist.” Concrete Creativity III circumvents ongoing sensory seizures. A filmic treasure of tasty creatures.
Today, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist SG Lewis releases the highly-anticipated new five-track project ‘Dark’ via Casablanca/Republic Records. The new record serves as the second chapter of his upcoming three-part concept album Dusk, Dark, Dawn, which chronicles the trajectory of a night out through its different moods and genres and serves as a tribute to club and youth culture.
While Dusk (released earlier this year) blended disco, smooth electro and funk, the second chapter in the trilogy Dark explores distinctly heavier yet still diverse sounds. Nowhere is this more present than in latest single ‘Again’, which sees SG collaborate with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs to create a euphoric slice of deep-house. In stark contrast, previous single ‘A.A.T’ is a skittering, bass-laden trap/R&B crossover featuring Drew Love of acclaimed American hip-hop duo THEY, while new EP track ‘Release’, a collaboration with London Grammar’s Dot Major, is a driving, blissed-out bass groove. Further collaborations on Dark include lead single ‘Hurting (feat. AlunaGeorge), which was Clara Amfo’s ‘Track Of The Week’ and topped the iTunes electronic chart, as well as ‘Dreaming’, featuring North London singer/songwriter Bruno Major. SG has previously collaborated with Col3trane, Raye, Ray BLK, The Neptunes’ Chad Hugo, Gerd Janson, Conducta and more as well as producing Dave’s ‘100M’s’ proving his worth as a producer not limited to any genre or style.
It’s been an incredible twelve months for SG that has seen him sell out an expansive run of dates in Europe, Australia, Asia and North America, including two nights in NYC, Toronto, Chicago and LA.
Following his recent massive US tour, SG brings his live show back to Europe for a string of dates starting in late November including Bristol and Manchester shows and culminating in a special sold-out headline show at London Printworks on December 7th.

I love Charli XCX, so getting to work with her was really inspiring. Offset felt like the perfect fit for the track. He’s one of the most talented, professional, down to Earth artists I’ve ever worked with, and his verse absolutely kills it.”
“Hurts Like Hell” comes hot on the heels of the success of Madison’s previous single “Home With You”, which made music history when it peaked within the Top 20 of US Top 40 radio chart, making Beer the first independent female solo artist to ever do so.

Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Alessia Cara has once again donned the symbolic, oversized suit she wore in the “Growing Pains” video, the “Trust My Lonely” video, as well as recent appearances on Fallon, Colbert, and the Today Show for her performances at Austin City Limits and the MTV EMA Awards – where she took home the award for Best World Stage. Alessia told the Today crew: “It’s an artistic way of symbolizing the idea of growing up. Sometimes you kind of feel like you’re drowning and you feel like you’re not ready for the roles life throws at you so this was my way of symbolizing it in an artistic way.” Alessia took to her Twitter account to defend her choices for wearing the oversized suit after some online criticism and received support from Kehlani and Ariana Grande.

ASHS is back with her new single “Without You” via Wax Records/ Casablanca Records/Universal Music Canada. “Without You” is a poignant look at a duplicitous relationship, with cutting lyrics: “Boy you say you love me but it’s only for pretend though. F*** your stupid games, you play my heart like a Nintendo.”
“Without You” follows the debut EP 3AM, which included the viral sensation “More Than Friends” (peaked at #4 on the Spotify US Viral Chart).
“’Without You’ is about that moment when the smoke clears and you’re finally able to acknowledge that the person you were with wasn’t as good for you as you first thought,” said ASHS. “It’s the realization that you have put in more than you got out, and that you just need to take a step back and breathe. The feeling of numbness and uncertainty of what life is now going to be like without that person. That first breath of air.”
Detroit born, LA based, prolific singer/songwriter Jesse Palter releases debut EP The Paper Trail October 22 on Artistry Music, featuring five tracks of aggressive, piano-pounding pop/rock in the vein of Carole King, Sarah McLachlan and Sara Bareilles. The first single going to radio is “Heavy Is The Crown,” an edgy, incisive pop-rocker examining narcisscism and victim-hood at is best. Check it out here.
Comments Palter: “All of these songs are paving the way towards establishing myself as an artist and songwriter. My approach throughout this project was to find a way to capture a full snapshot of my life and what I’ve been going through. This is the beginning of what I hope will be a long, fulfilling journey.”
Palter, who launched her career in Detroit and Chicago before moving to Los Angeles to focus on her development as a pop artist, was supported in her sound and overall vision by producer Doug Petty, a veteran keyboardist who has worked with Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Nick Lachey and Lisa Loeb, among others. Petty kept the integrity of Palter’s songs from demo stage through the various layers and textures brought forth to compliment her unique artistry. A high caliber of studio musicians played on the project including bassists Tim Lefebvre and Alex Al and drummers Matt Chamberlain and Aaron Sterling.
With The Paper Trail EP, Palter has committed herself to the discipline of perfecting the craft of songwriting. She focused on strengthening her creative muscles to discover what melodies, lyrics and chord changes work best, allowing herself to be vulnerable, brave and brutally honest at the same time. The songs are autobiographical, representing her life and what’s she’s been through.
Palter launched her jazz career as a teenager, performing oboe and trumpet in the school jazz band. She connected with singer/songwriter Andrew Gold (“Thank You For Being A Friend”), who brought her to Nashville to work on original material and record a demo, which generated interest with several major labels. At 15, she began working with the Grammy-winning production team the Bass Brothers (Eminem). Her skill for improvisational singing and a developing passion for legendary jazz vocalists, led to her shift towards jazz. She studied at the University Of Michigan as a jazz and contemplative studies major.
Her eclectic musical upbringing includes exposure to a wide array of music that inspired her to deeply respect the art of great songs and songwriters, from Carole King and Joni Mitchell, to Prince, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and The Beatles. Music and singing was always in her blood. Her grandmother, Doris Raynor, was once an opera prodigy in NY.
In early 2019, Artistry Music will follow up The Paper Trail EP with the single “Sever The Ties” and a full-length debut album.
