Sirius XM debuts ‘Chilled Live’ performance series with Shallou and Riah

This post was originally published on this site

LA-based shallou has been tapped to give the first-ever Sirius XM “Chilled Live” performance for Sirius’s SXM Chill channel. Shallou and Riah recently stopped by the Sirius NYC studio to perform their song “Lie.” The video series seems to take inspiration from other successful radio station features, like BBC Radio 1‘s “Live Lounge” or Triple J’s “Like A Version,” which are all great avenues for exposing up-and-coming talents.

With SXM Chill being the first radio outlet to play Shallou, the “Chilled Live” session marks another first for the budding talent. Earlier this year, he sold out his solo headline tour and also earned his first billboard in Times Square. The release of his sophomore Souls EP and the announcement of a debut world tour show the makings of a special artist indeed, deserving of the selective opportunity to perform in the debut edition of Sirius XM’s newest video venture.

Shallou’s ‘Souls’ EP is a must listen that renders the producer one to watch [Stream]

This post was originally published on this site

Downtempo, dreamlike tones and Shallou’s gossamer vocals epitomize harmonious sound on Souls, the seven-track EP that the indie electronic artist previewed with the release of singles “Find,”—featuring Kasbo and Cody Lovaas — and “Vignette,” that led up to its release.

At once emotive and affective, the production sources its poignancy from its ambient melodies, rich synth work, and soulful vocals, elements that collaboratively make for an easy listening experience, while further underscoring Shallou as a producer who will continue to be one to watch with each successive release. Duly refreshing and possessive of a confessional serenity that is distinctly and stylistically Shallou, Souls is an immersive and intimate production that further invites listeners into Shallou’s sonic sphere.

Petit Biscuit – Problems ft Lido (Shallou Remix)

Los Angeles producer Shallou continues his steady stream of releases with a lighthearted rendition of Petit Biscuit and Lido‘s “Problems.”

Just days after releasing the final single from his forthcoming EP, Shallou’s take on “Problems” hit the airwaves. In his remix, the producer toys with the vocals for a more playful take on the original. He maintains the initial melody, incorporating bouncing, glitchy elements for a spirited rendition of the song. While Shallou carefully preserves the authenticity of the original tune, he’s added his own peppy step to it.

April looks to be huge for the producer, as his seven-track Souls EP comes out April 27.

Shallou – Vignette

Shallou has released one final single titled “Vignette” off of his forthcoming seven-track EP, Souls, before its full release. The emotive single features vocals by the producer himself, and takes the listener on a sonic journey through lush chords paired with his smooth vocals.

The full EP is set to be released on April 27, and fans have already been exposed to “Lie” and “Find.” The indie electronic artist is also known for his environmental activism, so it’s unsurprising that his accompanying music video features beautiful scenery from flower filled fields, mountains, and lakes.

Kasbo, Shallou, and Cody Lovaas effect midtempo bliss on new single, ‘Find’

Kasbo

Kasbo convenes with house producer Shallou and singer-songwriter, Cody Lovaas on “Find,” an ambient, fluid production in which listeners can luxuriate. The track’s midtempo, chill pop packaging sets ethereal melodic waves into motion, the single’s melody temperately ebbing and flowing in a manner that is the epitome of sonic tranquility.

The production is a seamless amalgamation of Kasbo’s evocative, euphonic approach, and Shallou’s equally mellifluous style. Lovaas’ vocals sit serenely suspended over “Find’s” silk background beat, making for a polished final product that sources its success from it equanimity.

NMF Roundup: Fox Stevenson drops funky original, Manila Killa teams up with Nevve, and more

Festival

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


Fox Stevenson‘s long-awaited Metanoia debut brings forth a playful set of big room bounce sounds to the table on “Bulgogi.”

Panda Eyes & Chime amalgamate future bass overtones with heady dub inspired bass lines on their newest track “White Magic.”

Wooli steps outside the constructs of Delta Heavy and Dirty Audio‘s original production in favor of an atmospheric, vocally grounded future bass ballad.

Shallou’s newest sees the tropical house producer synthesize his bubbly synth tones with Riah’s infectious vocals.

As tech house continues to break into mainstream western dance culture, Brett Gould is placing himself on the forefront of the genre with his biting new track, “Drum Machine.”

Roisto‘s new track, “All Yours,” uses a heightened Axtone platform to showcase saccharine deep house-influenced melodies and a soulful vocal line from PowerDress.

Nevve‘s distorted vocals serve as ear candy for a patterned drum breakdown on Manila Killa‘s newest track “Everyday, Everyday.”

Unlike Pluto‘s emotive ballad “Fade All My Life” is an emotive step into teenage angst through the lens of mainstream electronic music, the result is likely to save a few teenagers from sleepless, thought-racing nights.

Budakid continues to magnify his presence through the release of the progressive masterpiece, “Memories.”

Sneijder‘s rework of Jackob Roenald’s “Shades” is further proof that the tech trance producer is ready to elevate himself further into the worldwide dance music sphere.

Ray Volpe has finally released an original that he’s been playing out for nearly a year, “Walk Away.”
