Brunetto is an artist who wears many hats; outside of creating music, he is also a behind-the-scenes fighter for underground dance. He recently signed onto Sincopat for a whimsical, yet profound “Humanity” alongside vocalist Bearoid.
“Humanity” oozes with indie-electro sound, weaving subtle hints of retro flavor into a contemporary canvas and lightening the mood with blissful melodies. The mixture of minimalism, nostalgia, and quirk is well-balanced and nuanced, making for a satisfying listen — Bearoid’s sparkling falsetto verses are the proverbial “icing on the cake.”
A plethora of others contributed their own takes on the original as well. Of the package, one standout is AFFKT. The Spanish producer adds a dancefloor-ready edge to “Humanity,” darkening it with a heavier low-end and a 4/4 kick. He retains the track’s indie spirit regardless, allowing its key elements to shine.
Bit Funk has captured the essence of the heartbreaking force of having to find someone new on their latest track, “Getting Worse.” This poppy dance track will speak to those who are having trouble moving on to someone else. It shows us that it’s okay to feel this conflict because it is normal to feel
24 year old DJ/Producer Bobby McKeon, better know as 4B, is about to become one of the biggest breakout artists of 2018. After a hallmark 2017 filled with appearances at every major US festival including, Coachella, ULTRA Miami, Hard Summer, and a set at EDC Las Vegas where the platinum rapper Soulja boy joined him
KSHMR is expanding his sound in a more mellowed, yet equally attention-grabbing way. The former Cataracs member has paired with vocalist Sidnie Tipton for a dynamic, pop-infused number titled “House Of Cards.”
Similar to the famed Radiohead song of the same name, “House Of Cards” works a subdued romantic angle, in which Tipton’s warm, soulful lyrics of intimacy and risk-taking flow over catchy guitar riffs and powerful horns. Notably lacking in the big room elements that led to KSHMR’s fame in the mainstream, this new piece signals not just a potential change in direction for the iconic artist, but it also displays his productive range.
Two of pop music’s most world renowned artists, Martin Garrix and Justin Bieber, have pending collaborations waiting to be released. According to @themartingarrixhub, an Instagram fan account dedicated to the Dutch superstar, Garrix and Bieber have two and possibly more tracks produced. In an interview with RTL last year, Garrix shared,
“We have lots of ideas but if we want to release one, we want it to be 200%. From the scale of 1-10, we think it’s 7-8. We want to release something which is 10 otherwise we won’t release it.”
The two spent a lot of time together when Bieber brought Garrix on his Purpose tour in Australia, and a collaboration would not come as a major surprise since both artists are managed by Scooter Braun. Bieber is already familiar with the dance community due to his past collaborations with Skrillex, Diplo, and Major Lazer. Fans can only imagine about what a collaboration between the two artists would entail, but undoubtedly, such a production would be one for the books.
Last year, rumors surfaced that Skrillex may be working with Jennifer Lopez after photos of the pop icon, Colombian hit maker J Balvin, and the OWSLA head honcho appeared on social media. Now it appears their collaboration has materialized, as concert goers in attendance at Calibash 2018 in Los Angeles were treated to the untitled track’s live debut during Lopez’ recent headlining set.
Lopez’ performance opened with an obligatory “Jenny From The Block,” though it wasn’t long until she was onto premiering new joint material made with LA’s favorite son that was a far cry from her 2002 sound, shouting out “her boy” Skrillex and priming fans to look for an accompanying remix of the new song as well.
Amidst a historic pop production tear that’s included Fifth Harmony, Poo Bear, Ty Dolla $ign in 2017, Skrillex has officially added JLo to his collaboration ranks with a new crossover cut marked by his now characteristically buoyant, sun-drenched island-inspired pop fare.

SOPHIE has released the official music video to accompany her track “Ponyboy.” The Los Angeles-based record producer, singer, songwriter, dancer and DJ started her career with a band called Motherland before releasing a string of singles and collaborations in 2014 that would help catapult her towards a mainstream breakthrough. Now, SOPHIE — with an album coming in the near future — is slated to become one of pop’s most invigorating figures.
The video features captivating light schemes that give rise to SOPHIE’s commanding vocals. As the camera shakes and SOPHIE leads two other women in a synchronized routine, the word “pony” and “boy” alternate on the background screen: the video is visually stimulating, the perfect fit for the ear candy that is “Ponyboy.”
