Smily’s featured Track

Helloooo all you music loving people!💕

It has been a while since my last article and I’m excited to write and share some new goodies with you all. 😊

Let me introduce you to my friend Ashni who already has had some top of the chart hits in Europe and is a bit newer in the USA market.

She is a beautiful soul, a fun and kind-hearted person. Gorgeous inside and out. She has a great passion for her music and I feel connected to her through that passion for music.

I’m excited to share her new track with you all. First let’s let her talk a bit about the track!

About the track by the artist

This track was written and produced by Mr.Z. who previously wrote for me, so we decided to join forces and do a song together.  This is how CrazyThings was born.

For me personally this is the first track I have done in this genre. This track gives me such a happy heart and positive energy.

It provides me with a sense of freedom and being a real woman, while singing and dancing to it. It’s the time you can completely let go!

This track gives me the feeling that anything is possible!🎶💕😍

About the track by Smily

The more I watch the video and listen to the track the more it makes me smile. Everyone involved in this was SO happy while they made this track. That really counts for something with me deep in my heart. ❤

It is a fun and upbeat track, sure to get you dancing no matter what genre of music you are into.

My tastes have a wide range from underground and obscure to dreamy floaty trance and happy progressive to mainstream.

I feel this particular track has the potential of becoming very big in the mainstream market.  You can tell that everyone involved in this has a great love for what they do and that everyone of the people that were involved with this track clearly has a passion for music and doesn’t that deserve our full support?

So all you twitterfam that love music and like reading my blog, do your thing!

Hello darlings 😊🎶❤

I hope you are all happy and smiling. Today I am going to do something a little different.

I love so many genres of music and I love my friends. Even though most of the music I share here is electronic dance music, today I am featuring a track of it’s own genre. And it’s made by a friend in combination with other great talents. Please give this amazing track s listen and support all involved.

When I heard this track I was excited and proud after the long journey it took to get to this place. As my expertise is not in this genre please read the below details provided by my friend.

I understand some of the influences of underground Synthwave and Goth bands get lost in the view of it when those scenes are already pretty low on the radar of many people who will be listening to this.

As for my own comments, I personally would be going out of my way to say that this is my personal favorite track on the album. This was a track where I did everything to make sure it was right. Everybody was brought in that was needed to. Maverick’s ferocious vocals, George Galanos’ ripping guitar solos that conclude the track with a big bang, and Sandra’s instruments that she re-recorded over my own demo, most notably drum machines that would certainly please “Doktor Avalanche” lol

I tend to do many stories or personifications in my lyrics because I want to connect to something with my music. I listen to a lot of Goth music and sometimes it feels like as much as there is darkness, it is more of a mood piece than something they connect with. That’s why I like to do stuff like “The Looks That Kill” or I try to challenge my own personal demons with something like “Without You”. It’s much more interesting to listen to.

Also contextualizing this record felt kinda important for me, not because of how much it means but because in comparison to other retro leaning acts like Greta van Fleet and The Darkness that have a much more well known derivative sound, very few will be in the know about the whole Goth thing. I don’t really want that angle to be lost, especially as some people have tried to label us as Synthrock or basically anything except Goth Rock or Darkwave (Which while I do appreciate the support, I feel hurts the culture)

Smily’s featured Remix

Hello all you beautiful souls!🌈😊🎶✌

Today I’d like to introduce you to a lovely Virtual Self remix made by Sine Wave ( @arismakesmusic ) I was introduced to Aris mixes by my friend Chez ( @astateofchez ) with a check this guy out I think you’ll like his music and she knows me well! I like Aris unique sound all his own on all his music. This particular remix I am featuring is the one I like best so far! I look forward to all future work of Aris and look forward to help support him 😊

Let’s give him a chance to introduce himself and talk a bit about his music!

A bit about the Artist by the Artist

I grew up in a very musical family. My mother and grandfather are both gifted musicians. Both of them were grade school music teachers in Soviet Armenia, where I was born. When we moved to the United States in 1988, music was one of the few things our family could hold on to from our past. I grew up listening to all sorts of world music, and in my teens, found heavy metal, which eventually led me to electronic music in my college years. I was amazed at the stuff people like Aphex Twin, Autechre, and Squarepusher were putting out. So I downloaded a free tracking software in 2001 (because recording gear was so expensive at the time) and started my journey in music making. The rest, as they say, is history.

A bit about the mix by the Artist

I fell in love with ‘a.i.ngel’ immediately. Virtual Self did a beautiful job bringing up nostalgic memories of an era of electronic music that is now lost in time, buried deep in an internet that no longer exists. And when I started to listen to remixes of this song, they all sort of sounded the same to me. So I figured I try and change it up a bit. I wanted this mix to gallop at a completely different pace than the original. I also wanted the mix to sound like it was being played by a rock band in a galactic circus, with the focal point of this mix being the outro of the original.

A bit about the remix by Smily

Well there isn’t much more I can say I think. The description Aris uses of his mix is beautifully worded. I personally enjoy how Aris has managed to have a unique sound that’s all his own, without allowing too much outside influence. Sticking to his gut in music and sound and following his heart. Keep up the great work!

Please follow him on Twitter @arismakesmusic and listen to his mix below. Remember how much it means to artists for you to listen to, share and tell them how much you like their music.

As always much love,

Smily ❤💖🌈

Hello all you beautiful souls 🌈❤🌈

It is time again for my next featured track. Today’s track is by Liquid Mazes aka Ryan Shawn who has been sharing original tunes on Twitter for years while also listening and supporting other artists. Isn’t that important in this industry that we all support each other? Today let’s support him by listening to his track and sharing it/commenting if you enjoyed it as well .

A bit about the Artist by the artist.

Ryan Shawn McDonald from Vancouver Island, British Columbia Canada. I have been taking music seriously as far as production about 5 years. I don’t limit myself to one genre and consider  myself a multi genre artist.

A bit about the Track by the artist.

I made the track in mid summer while a lot of emotions were flowing through me at the time. I feel like that came through in the sound. It’s me on the piano keys, i did the entire track, no samples.

A bit about the Track by Smily.

I chose this track by Ryan because the melody is so pleasant and dreamy. The title fits this song as I can imagine looking up at the stars with a hopefull dreamy feeling, on the verge of falling in love, with thoughts of good days ahead. A song for us dreamers that aren’t afraid to dream but then also go after making those dreams come true.

Please give it a listen and help support the artist by sharing this article, following @StanginNbangin  on Twitter and listening to and sharing the music. Kind comments are always welcome too as this keeps artists motivated 😊

Here’s the track! And as an added bonus Ryan has been so kind to offer a download of this track as well!

Here it is! Don’t forget to let me know what you think!

 

Much love always ❤ Smily

Smily’s featured New Release

Hello all you wonderful music lovers. You are in for such a treat, because today I am able to present to you the newly released track produced by John Lutchman.

Before I share this track I want to tell you a bit of background so you can relate to the beauty of this moment and this track.

Before I started my own blog years ago I used to write articles for other blogs now and then. One of the first articles I ever wrote was a small list of tracks of producers who I had heard on SoundCloud where when I heard their music it touched my heart and soul in a way where it made me feel this is a producer to watch out for in the future. John Lutchman was one of them and one I felt strongly about.

To me it’s been exciting watching him work so hard towards his goals and making it so far. He plays many shows in New York and Austin and has grown to a whole new level of skills. He’s reached great success and I was beyond honored when John shared the track he made with me and asked for my feedback.

I always enjoy getting to hear a track someone worked hard on and put their heart and soul into, it’s something special and I treasure it whenever this happens. When I heard John’s track the melody and sound hit me so hard!

I love the vibe of this song so much, the melody is lovely and the first time I heard it I just didn’t want it to end. And it moved me, really moved me. Tears were streaming down my face even though it’s not a sad melody. His music touched my heart and soul. There are many talented producers out there, but not many can translate feelings into music. It’s a special talent only a few people have. John is one of them.

John has worked EXTREMELY hard over the years and hasn’t always gotten the breaks he deserves in my eyes, but he doesn’t complain and keeps working hard with a positive attitude.

I’d like to ask all of you in our lovely music community to now all get together and show John how much we appreciate people like him that love the music as much as us. I’d like to ask you to carefully listen to this track and see how it moves YOUR soul and then share it with your friends. And then give John Lutchman a follow on Twitter reach out to him and tell him not to ever give up because we need his music in this world.

His Twitter is @John_Lutchman

And now (drumroll)

A masterpiece 🎶🔊💕

 

For Avicii ❤

I wanted to do something, say something while respecting the family and their wishes but I didn’t know how.

@mrdjcosmo reached out to me about using my blog to do something. He helped me come up with a lovely idea of collecting messages from the community that was so strongly affected.

I love this idea of allowing people to express their feelings and say what they want to say to Avicii wherever he may be. Only kind heartfelt messages as there is too much sadness and negativity out there already.

All of our hearts are hurting 💔 We want to show you how much you meant to all of us in this community, how we are grieving and how much love we have for you and your music. We are putting these messages out in the universe to express our feelings and hope they will get to you❤

I will let @mrdjcosmo speak first

Just a few days ago we’ve lost one of the greatest DJ/Producer that ever walked the earth. With his biggest single “Hey Brother” in 2013, which touched millions is still going strong. Tim Bergling AKA AVICII will be remembered forever❤️❤️ #Avicii4Ever @mrdjcosmo

And here is what I would like to say. I have never been that affected by the death of an artist before. My heart is literally aching and I cried. His young talented life just like that gone… It made me stop and think and reflect on life.

The people I love and how some things are worth fighting for. To tell people you care about them because what if they aren’t here tomorrow? To be there for those that are feeling sad even if you don’t know exactly how to help, to just try your best for them.

Realizing that modern day society sometimes makes people feel too pressured to perform a certain way and it all becoming too much. Not only in this industry though, but in daily life for many with different things people try to accomplish.

Please see the messages that were sent to me below. Each person sharing their feelings in their own way.

Love with a sad heart 💓 Smily

With Avicii’s sad passing, it shows just how short our lives can be. I urge everyone to live a productive life and to leave behind a lasting legacy of respect, peace and love. Just as Tim has left for us all. RIP Legend. @PressureZone

Tim, I know you probably wouldn’t remember me even if we saw each other in person again, but I just gotta say I am glad I met you and knew of your music when I did. Even when I was 17 and still played a guitar, stubborn as ever, I knew your music stood out even the slightest bit. I’ve watched your music become rather influential, and I ran into many a-clone, and I heard LE7ELS, Wake Me Up, and Hey Brother in a long list of places that I could never finish. You may have had it difficult, but your situation along with my own has inspired me and most likely many others to stand up for artists’ rights, and I will continue to do so even in your passing. Regardless of what happens in the next step of Dance music and whatever passing trend comes along, I’m sure history will remember your hits and the impact that they had on many people. May you rest in peace! – @AlterityMusic

Game changer. Simply put. Always tries to broaden the horizon of whatever genre he decided to make that day. Will be missed by many 🙏 @DJRecklessRyan

RIP Avicii. Taken too soon and always remembered for the sounds of summer. One Love and badly missed by all XXX @Veritycrank please see the art she made below

IMG_20180421_200908

You will be missed. Your incredible talents helped bring some joy to those that heard them. Never will you be forgotten. @ChromeFumofoo

Goodbye from this world Avicii, thank you for the amazing feelings you gave to us. Your music is clarifying and soul cleansing, it will now live on long long past many future generations to come. You were a brilliant human being who inspired great emotion in many forms.#RIPAvicii @StanginNbangin Please see the picture he made below.

IMG_20180422_102125

I remember 2011 a Melbourne club called Motel, a skinny blue eyed blonde kid played a song called Levels, we didn’t know how that song would be the catalyst for something the whole world loved. His name was Avicii, to me he will always be Tim Bergling. We all idolize the artist but often we forget the human being. I met him briefly in 2013, a shy, fragile but kind man, the kind you want to hug the pain away you see in his face. The pain has gone now Tim, it’s ours as fans to deal with and I hope you soar free and happy because that’s what all beauty deserves. @AStateofChez

Aug 29, 2011 The first day of my 9th grade I knew there was something else in life besides academics after watching a video where I listened “Levels” for the first time. After that day, nothing has been the same, thank you Avicii showing me what living feels like. @robedub28

A Swedish young man; so artistic, passionate, and creative. With the assistance of Laidback Luke, determines that the sounds he can create electronically, will be the path he wants to lead. Unfortunately it was a path of two tales. One a genius musical journey, for which the world has been left with treasures, yet a void now left with his passing. The other path, was one in which this genius was so unhappy, with the life the beautiful music caused him. A true loss, one with the other greats gone to soon. Be at peace Tim, make music for all in heaven now. @vista318

Avicii why is it the good always die young! Maybe its just their time and was his destiny to show others what’s possible. While he was here he burnt bright and his music burnt into the memories of many is his legacy and how he attains immortality. Whatever you believe, hear or see, do not judge him by his flaws or his mistakes, judge him by his deeds and the happiness he brought to millions via his musical genius and the generosity of spirit that eminated from it. Now and forever.. He will always remain an important flag post in my life. #RIPAvicii Damian of akausband @akausband

This a cautionary tale for DJs. We are sad and grieving yet feel joy in your music Avicii @TribalTechno see aditional contribution below.

IMG_20180422_113155

He knew exactly how to produce a track that would bring people together, regardless of their musical preference, social background, or culture! The world didn’t just lose a young musician, but in that sense a humanitarian too! If there is a Heaven, then it’s probably jamming to his tunes right now, everyone from Elvis to MLK, Lady Diana, Prince in one crazy heavenly party DJed by Avicii! @youwishmusic

Thank you for the music and the melodies Tim. May you find peace in the hereafter and evermore. Onto a place where music was born is where we shall all pass. Beyond Beyond ✌@_McSweeney

As the Swedish House Mafia said on BBC Radio 1 “Goosebumps Never Lie” and Avicii was one of those artists when I would watch him live always give me goosebumps. RIP Avicii @HouseCracka

He left us so many amazing melodies and memories through his music! His tracks would cheer anyone up 💖 @charlottesdj

Regardless of the genre of music we all love, Avicii has a special place in all our hearts. He crossed all genres & will be greatly missed 💖 @F__U__Trump

I’m gutted about avicii, the arpeggios in his tracks were both sublime and an inspiration to much of my music and I hear influences in the music of others. He will be greatly missed. He was a fine man and a true all round entertainer. HisHis mem will live on through his music for a very long time to come. It’s hard losing someone so young and my best wishes go out to his family. @joncoopermusic

AVICII was a true pioneer in EDM.He showed us that it is possible to fuse different genres,such as soul and country,into electronic dance music,creating something truly beautiful that can reach the hearts of everyone,not just EDM fans.May his soul have a restful journey. @euromericaradio

Tim-tragic-and tragic shame that he didn’t act a bit sooner on his problems. Its a cliche that he will live on through his music-but he will-but 28- @Alastorworld

Avicii was one of the reasons I started listening to edm in the first place. His tracks (especially ‘silhouettes’) inspired and still inspire me to go on, to continue chasing my dreams. His contribution to the world of electronic music is huge. It would be fair to say that he’s an actual music genius. Now that Tim’s gone, it all feels so empty and fake. but his legacy will continue to live on, and we, his fans, will make sure it does.
rest easy, Tim. we all love you and miss you. @yunidmusic

Thank you to all that shared their feelings. 💖 Smily

Smily’s featured Track

Good day all you wonderful people ❤

I have a new featured track for you all to enjoy. As you all know I am a bit newer to the Techno genre and have been exploring that field some in addition to the electronic genres I already love so much. Today I want to introduce you to a friend of mine that has been sharing great podcasts and mixes with me that I truly enjoy. Chris Porter. We started talking about him producing his own music and I was very delighted when he went for it and started making his own tracks. Let’s let Chris speak for himself. 😊

A bit about the Artist by the Artist

I’m Chris Porter, living in the Western Isles, Scotland. DJ for 8 years and most recently started producing. I have regular slots on radio stations like casafondaradio.com, studiosoundsradio.com and locally on anradio.scot.

I love a bass heavy sound driving a dance floor and just aim to play and share motivating, captivating Techno. Hardcore Drumcode fan boy 😂

A bit about the track by the Artist

The track is made from inspired ideas kind of subconsciously from my favourite producers. Trikk, Pan Pot, Pig & Dan, Adam Beyer, Harvey MacKay I could go on, I’m happy how it sounds although I will need to have it mastered and feel optimistic about future projects! 😁

To be honest I want to make techno sounds that haven’t been heard before but keeping a deep dark driving energy about it, hopefully I will keep to my word!

A bit about the track by Smily

I liked it the moment I heard it. It has a nice tech feel to it that close your eyes and dance to the way the music makes you feel kind of vibe. I think Chris is modest and has great talent in his field. This track isn’t mastered yet but still manages to sound really good.

Please listen to his track below and give it a share and a comment if you like it to show your support. You may follow Chris on Twitter as well @ChrisIPorter

Here’s the link to the track 😊

Art inspired by Music

Hello lovely people ❤💕

Today I bring you something quite special. I want to introduce a beautiful soul to you that has great talent in art. Let me introduce Andromeda Galaxy aka GMoney. I met her via Twitter where we enjoyed sharing and listening to music. I loved seeing her art come across my feed as well.

Then one day she sends me a picture of a painting she started inspired by one of my playlists. She would paint while listening to the music and each time send me updates of the progress. Of course this felt like such a huge honor it blew me away. The art is finished now and I’d like to share some pictures of the art inspired by music and to let dear Andromeda share a bit about herself and her art. Please enjoy 😘🌈

A word by the Artist

G$

One of the messages in my state of being the visual artist Gmoney is to see the humor in life. My given first name starts with a G and I’ve been called Gmoney for different reasons by different people in a fun, honest way.

But for me and people who know me well it holds a kind of sarcastic joke. I mean you’d think I’m ballin with a name like that right? Fact is most of the time i have no money lol But I am known to be reliable, help people, take care of business and have great taste. I have no car, but sometimes people think I have wings, or a broomstick.

It’s been said about my word, you can take it to the bank. And somehow—I won’t say things always work out for me but—great things come through and I find money and good fortune in unusual places… by looking closely, being observant.

That’s another message in my artwork: pay attention, be aware, inspect the details. Because you will often see something new or see a familiar thing in a new perspective, when you’re paying close attention in life and also I hope when you look at my canvases.

Most of all, it’s about the music, for people who don’t listen to electronic dance music and who do. Painting is how I visually, synesthetically interpret the sounds and feels of our music through the lens of whatever is on my own mind. Even when I’m inspired by outside visions, the techno is always what moves my brush!

The way I keep it positive for myself is, under the name Gmoney I’m painting under a symbol representing success I will achieve in good time, including ample means to enjoy more of what’s amazing in life…including a very long list of EDM festivals I haven’t been to yet!!

One goal I have is to paint live to live music at all kinds of EDM events… to meet and talk with all different crews and DJs from all over the world. I want to ‘bring it to the next level’ by infusing the live energy of the crowd at a show into my visions and work.

Gmoney’s recording artist alter-ego is a creature of voice, sound and word: Andromeda Galaxy and on the hard side, the Androminator.

Final words by Smily

I feel such lovely energy coming from this beautiful artwork when I look at it. Can you imagine the happy feelings it would give you each time you look at this while it’s hanging in your home?😍 It’s absolutely gorgeous and I will forever be honored that my playlists helped inspire a wonderful artist. ❤

Enjoy this great art and be sure to follow her on Twitter @gal_andromeda and @fka_GS reach out to her you would like to contribute to her art 💋

Much love and Good Vibes to all of you and till next time 😘 Smily

Smily’s featured Track

Hello all you beautiful souls💟

It’s time again for the next featured track! I have had the chance to get to enjoy the unique lovely music by Artistes known as Us.

What a lovely bunch of humans they are. Damian has been great about staying in touch and letting me know what they are doing, goals, dreams etc.

Let’s give them a chance below to introduce themselves and talk about their track .

A bit about the artist by the artist

The founder of the Band Damo Funk (Damian) decided in 2013 to pursue a long held ambition to create music and publish it.

The name of the Band came about as a homage to Prince. The Artist Known as Us is a collective of like minded individuals producing music they like, predominantly House & Techy Trance Beats.

We embrace influences from all walks of Music including Funk & Disco. We create, play and enjoy music both in the Studio and Live. Live music has been our current emphasis to get our music out there as well as online.

Our Ethos, Love, Peace and Unity through Music…

A bit about the track by the artist

Funked up Trance thing came about after putting our third Album together, The Sunset remixes Dreamscape Volume III E.P.

This was one of the tracks rummaging around Damo’s Brain for some time. It was influenced by the love for 1990’s Trance.  He used a groove he came up with and a beat he created himself.

It was included on the latest Album Casa Disco in September 2017. On reflection its one of our strongest dancefloor contenders!

We love it and hope clubbers, Dj’s and lovers of dance music who stumble across it love  it as much as we do.

A bit about the Track by Smily

The title pretty much says it all. This is a Trancy track with a lot of funky to it. I find myself jamming out in my car on my way to work happily whenever it comes on my playlist. I feel this is one of those tracks that many people will enjoy with a wide range of taste in music. So please give it a listen 😊💙

About the Artist by Smily

Hello Sunshines 🌞🌻

It is with great pleasure and honor I would like to present my first featured Artist article. Please allow me to introduce You Wish. 😊

I got to know You Wish aka Gabi years ago when I only just started getting to know how to work Twitter, and the lovely music you can find there.

He followed me and shared music with me (one of the first to do so) and we started to chat about music happily. I enjoyed his style of music and still do. I feel his personal style reflects his personality.  Filled with Happy Vibes, EDM with a touch of that Euro dance I grew up with and love so much.

I  knew we would get along great when he sent me a DM (hope you don’t mind me sharing this Gabi it’s too funny not to share) opening with…. Can I ask you a personal question?  I was wondering what in the world was coming next and then he sent a picture with a hand full of gummy bears asking:  Would you like some gummy bears?😂 Instant friends after this moment!

There used to be a station called RaveCave many of you may remember this. We’d all tune in to You Wish hour show and listen worldwide with many friends who all became dear to me. I still miss having our Twitter Rave parties. Lovely moments I’ll always treasure.

One week I had to go to Chicago for some personal business and I met up with Gabi in person. We had a lovely time it was like I’d always known him the brother I never had before. We laughed, talked about music and sang our favorite songs in the middle of the street.

I got to see his studio and heard some fresh music before release and even met his adorable mum.  We had a fun night out as he showed me some of his favorite places in downtown Chicago.  There were lovely views and fun places where we danced and had some nice meals too to be able to stay out and dance all night.  So many #PLUR vibes that night. I’ll never forget that lovely time.  It really is a great time meeting Twitter friends you have gotten to know and trust, especially to me when they have the same passion for music.

Iam honored to have him as my first featured Artist 😊

Here’s a few pictures of that time I wanted to share. It was hard choosing just a few since there were so many and most of them was us making silly faces. Good times, Good Friends.

Please be sure to follow him on Twitter @youwishmusic

And also check out his music on Spotify

And now let me give him a chance to talk. 😄✌☮

About the Artist by the Artist

My artist name is You Wish, my real name Gabriel Mican.  I’m artist & producer based in Chicago, USA. I classifies my style as Progressive House music with some Electro – all built around a love for a strong melody.

My music has a feel-good vibe that is captured on my 2016 release “Girl Like You” co-produced by house music pioneer Vince Lawrence, which debuted #1 on Dance Top 100 Releases as well as #3 Electro House Top 100 charts on Beatport.com! The track eventually hit #1 on the Beatport Electro House Top 100 chart, as well as #5 on the Beatport Top 100 New Releases charts! The track features Chaddy (of “The Streets on Fire” Chicago group), and also benefited of a Electro House remix by New Jersey producer Draco Savon. 

For me the early 1990s Euro-dance was a big influence back when I lived in Europe. Groups like The Prodigy and Faithless served as inspiration to become a music artist and producer myself. It was around that time that I got my hands on a Casio keyboard, a gift from my father! I became instantly in love with synthesizers! A passion which I share with producer and fellow Chicagoan Vince Lawrence whom I met in 2010. Acknowledged universally as the producer of the first House record “On and on” back in the late ‘80s, Lawrence saw right away the potential waiting to be explored in “You Wish”. 

Having lived in different parts of Europe (Romania, Monaco and France) and now in the USA, I knows first-hand the impact that electronic dance music has on people. Its message is that of love, unity and respect. It’s the sound of hypnotic synthesizers and hard kicking drums that brings fans together who share a common love for dance music. It is out of this love that my music label “Wish Music” was born in 2013. I wanted to build something that Chicago, the city that started it all, would be proud of.

Earlier this year on March 6th, my 5 track E.P. “Crazy Life” came in at #2 on the Dance New Releases charts (later on peaking at #1), #1 on Electro New Releases and #1 on the Big Room New Releases Charts on Beatport.com! It was an epic way to follow-up my previous release “Girl Like You”, especially for an independent artist with no major label support!

My newest release “Freak”, another Vince Lawrence Co-Production was released on November 27th. Fueled by hypnotic synths and a dark electro beat, ‘Freak’ tells the story of a sensual minx. The track it’s sure to bring out the “Freak” in everyone on the dancefloor!

 

I look forward to continue sharing my music with you.
