First off, I’d like to sincerely apologize for not getting to this one sooner. LA-based DEVAULT absolutely crushes his freshly released remix of Alessia Cara’s emotive pop ballad, “Out Of Love”. The rising artist sets the theme using his signature retro brand. He infuses the original with nostalgic 80’s synths and energizing riffs that produce an incredible chemistry with Alessia’s passionate lyrics.
To better describe the track’s vibe as vividly as possible, envision yourself cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway on a cloudless day. You’re riding in a convertible, top down with the wind whipping around you, and you have absolutely zero worries in the world. Well that’s exactly what you’re going to be picturing the second the chorus kicks in - guaranteed. Highly recommend you listen to this on high quality headphones in order to truly absorb the full affect and I promise, it will leave you speechless.

Fridays are both our favorite and, well, not so favorite day of the week. Why? Because there’s just so many damn good releases that it’s nearly impossible for us to decide which ones to showcase here on Beautiful Buzzz.
The first of the batch that made the (extremely difficult) cut is the new one from rapidly rising singer/songwriter AViVA- a fresh, high-energy single titled “BLACKOUT”. Enlisting an all-star team for the - contrary to its name - colorful pop single, AViVA was aided by a few production power players like Jayson Dezuzio (Imagine Dragons and Lana Del Rey), Charlie Snyder (Bebe Rexha) and Jean Paul Fung who has also worked on past releases for AViVA such as “GRRRLS” and “BRN”. Finally, the song was sonically balanced and perfected by mastering wiz, Chris Gehringer (Twenty One Pilots, Fall Out Boy, Halsey and more).
“BLACKOUT’s” lively nature gives you just the right amount of boost you need to transition from the draining weekdays to kickstart an amped weekend. Also, not to mention how catchy the lyrics are; this is one you will definitely find yourself singing in the shower as you get ready for the Friday night festivities.

If you don’t already know who TÂCHES is, then it’s best you start to familiarize yourself. The man is an absolute musical genius, and we have the proof to back it up.
Diving head first into 2019 with an incredibly clean 5-track project titled “Heart Over Heels”, TÂCHES rises above the electronic norms through an eclectic fusion of house, minimal and dance. Songs such as “I Don’t Look Back” and “Meet You in the Moonlight” are more melody-driven, while other tracks like “Dances With Wolves” and “Sofia’s Theme” are led by uptempo percussions.
The single we are choosing to highlight of the 5 is “Meet You in the Moonlight”- an invigorating blend of disco, house and tribal that’s guided by soulful vocal samples. But the last thing we want to do is downplay the other tracks, as every single one is just as unique and beautiful as the next. Take a listen and you decide which one is your favorite, though I can guarantee it’s definitely not going to be an easy choice.

Newcomer Eylia is making some massive waves with her collaborative debut EP “The Missing Scent”. Aided by fellow producer Majeur Mineur, the 7-track work is absolutely exquisite as it blends R&B with a pop-electronic sound that serves as the backdrop of the EP.
The track that particularly caught our attention was “Aura”, a soothing piece that can put anyone’s stresses or worries at ease. Eylia is truly a knockout, setting herself apart from others through a powerful and striking vocal performance, that is driven by emotive lyrics and a soulful melody. Considering such outstanding talent as hers, one can only imagine how quickly the up and coming artist will be packing stadiums.
DROELOE’s new single “Facing The Sea” is a dark and stormy track that builds on the electronic duo’s path towards a more experimental albeit, exciting route in dance music. The fresh tune marks the first release of a double-single series that the Dutch power players are putting out, showcasing music from artists they admire. “Facing The Sea” shines a light on the talents of fellow producer Sem, whom the bitbird signees have been supporting in live sets since last year.
The single is a thrilling journey for listeners of all music; taking them down a psychedelic road of sharp synths that are fused with the distinguished, addicting DROELOE style. Suffice to say, if you’re a DROELOE fan, you’ll inevitably find yourself continuing to be blown away by the duo’s fearless ability to explore unfamiliar musical territories and craft divergent sounds.
Beautiful Buzzz is absolutely delighted to have the honors of premiering rising artist midnight’s turbulent new single, “Pressure Gradient”. The stirring single comes as the first off his forthcoming EP, “Nocturne”, which will be releasing via Majestic Casual.
Enlisting NY-based artist ylxr to spearhead the production, the two creatives bring their unsurpassed abilities to the table and develop a heart-rendering, contemporary ballad. The artists’ chemistry and the track’s mixing is nothing short of breathtaking. A relaxed, r&b-fused melody sets the foundation for the piece while midnight’s satiny-smooth voice provides a devastatingly beautiful contrast to the rollercoastering glitchy synths and jaw-dropping vocal chops that decorate the single. The result is both mesmerizing and intoxicating, sending listeners on a journey filled with musical complexities and deviating sounds.
midnight discusses the passionate thoughts that inspired the track and explains, “‘Pressure Gradient’ is birthed from the struggle to balance rebellion and restraint as a person of color living in a country terrorized by bigotry. The lyrics covet the simplicity of being in love while drowning in the anguish of that bigotry.” midnight’s passion seeps through the emotive single, leaving us awe-struck and bedazzled, and it surely will leave the same lasting effects on listeners.

Beauvois, more commonly known by his indie-pop moniker, Kidswaste, has once again graced us with an exposé of versatility and musical brilliance. His fresh release “Escape” takes a different path than previous releases of this alias that took on a mellower vibe such as his last single “Jupiter”. In his most recent, the French singer, songwriter and musician assumes an earlier 2000’s indie/synth-pop sound comprised of upbeat chords and energized guitar riffs. It perfectly cultivates a heavy sense of nostalgia through indie rock elements such as those found in old school Matt & Kim while the 21 year old artist tops it off with his own vocals- ones that almost scarily resembles that of Thomas Mars, lead singer of (also) French indie-pop/new wave band Phoenix. All in all, if you’re looking for an “escape” from the long hours of work, and the continuously shortening days of winter, then this is definitely going to be your go-to.
If you’ve been a following Beautiful Buzzz over the years, then you know we are quite the fans of Philippine artist, Manila Killa. With that said, you better believe we were all over his brand new single, “Run Away”. His latest has us in complete awe as his growth as a musician is nearly impossible to ignore through its quality and intricacy. Manila Killa takes synths and vocal chops to a whole other level in the dreamy pop, melody ridden track. Blending indie elements with a dance-like structure, “Run Away” assumes its form as an universally enjoyable tune and an absolute hit. Styles and chords similar to those of Porter Robinson’s can be noted in the chorus before it smoothly transitions into a waterfall of colorful vocal chops and fluttering synths.
Like what you hear? Then make sure to keep your eye out for Manila’s forthcoming EP releasing via Moving Castle.

Over a year ago, the French electronic super group, Slow Hours, teased us with two epic remixes of Petit Biscuit and What So Not. Their name, as well as the names of the artists it comprises: Khamsin, Kidswaste, Kultur, Rusty Hook, Lain and Astre, started spreading like wildfire following those releases. Listeners and fans worldwide were left on the edge of their seats in anticipation for more music from the group. Well, almost 2 years later that time has FINALLY arrived, and it’s pretty hard for us here at Beautiful Buzzz to comprehend just how elated we really are. Might we say, their debut single, titled “Endless”, was well-worth the wait and 100% exceeds what were already our sky-high expectations. Each member contributed their own signature style to the track - from indie to pop, to some of the grimiest electronic synthwork - and created one hell of a masterpiece as a result.
But this release comes as one very close to the heart for the boys, considering the physical- and emotional- energy that went into the production of it. Confronted with a plethora of obstacles, from internal disagreements to the contemplation of disassembling the group, “Endless” is the result of what happens when 6 young incredibly talented artists, and close friends, decide to persevere and let their passion lead the way.
