Funky and incredibly catchy, “Played Out” has the makings of a versatile classic.

Dutch Robinson’s vocal addition is absolutely killer, as his soulful voice will easily be stuck in listeners heads for days to come.
Traversing the vibrant world of nu-disco, pioneer of groove LA Felix casts NYC-based producer LEFTI for this intoxicating remix of his original cut, “Too Many Lies.” Boasting his formidable writing style, LEFTI stitches this flip together with lush guitar plucks, funky synths, and flamboyant chord progressions. A nod to the golden age of disco, this remix breathes a refreshing new life into the boundless stream of this multi-faceted genre.

Paco Versailles is a name you’ll be hearing a LOT in the near future. The electric duo is composed of songwriter/producer Ryan Merchant (of Capital Cities fame) and guitarist/composer Vahagni, and they recently released their second single “Shangri La” — but I’m already a fan for life. Merchant’s mesmerizing dance/pop vocals are fantastically memorable instant sing-alongs, exquisitely complemented by Vahagni’s resplendent flamenco guitar. Together, they’ve dubbed their sound Dancemenco (a new genre moniker I quite like).
The group’s first single “Unwind” dropped in late June. The delightful concoction of enthralling acoustic guitar riffs, dance claps, and romantic vocals is instantly enamoring. With that release, they also debuted their captivating live show at LA’s esteemed Peppermint Club. All I can say is: this is a band that will be playing festivals this time next year. Following up “Unwind” with “Shangri La”, Paco Versailles has delivered more of their addictive Dancemenco, alluding to the search for the legendary literary utopia Shangri La, which represents a mystical paradise, isolated from the world (a place I think we’d all enjoy going to for a while). Keep your eyes and ears on Paco Versailles. I hear lots more new music is coming soon :D

Championing the new age of electro-soul and R&B, Nashville’s own R.LUM.R delivers a breath of fresh air with his latest offering, “How This Feels.” An immersive cut dipped in soulful songwriting and looming melodies, R.LUM.R solidifies himself as an authentic visionary. Dripping in profound psalms, “How This Feels” is a righteously unnerving outline that prompts contemplation. Musically sincere and easily embraced, the Nashville creator strikes chords beyond those which make up this track’s very DNA.

Breathing a vibrant sort of life into the Milwaukee music scene, Chris Siegel delivers his feel-good, summertime joint, “Week 1.” Unapologetically optimistic, Siegel’s freshest cut is distinctly genreless. A poignant instrumental with hip hop breaks and synth-pop aromas, “Week 1” challenges the M.O of contemporary electronic production. Bubbly percussive elements tumble through shimmering digital soundscapes curating an outline of neon resonance. Rich with spirit and embrace, “Week 1” is the lively melting pot of sounds you need to hear.
