Watch: 122 North Reveals Debut Single/Video "Drive"

Canadian electronic/synthpop project 122 North (aka Danny Provencher) has released the video for his summery debut single "Drive".

The song, heavily influenced by the Madchester/Acid House era of the late 80's early 90's, is out now and is taken from their forthcoming debut EP 'Night Drive', which will be available in September through Too Good To Be True Records. 

Evocating a happy time that we would like to be suspended forever, "Drive", both the track and its video, bear witness to a past world that was resolutely modern and fun. A song full of softness, light and nostalgia and a perfect way to start the summer as it should.

New Entry: Make Friends Unveil New Single "Call Me Out"

Bristol indie pop four-piece Make Friends have unveiled their new single "Call Me Out".

From the band: "Call Me Out is about having people in your life that are able to ‘call you out’ when you’re not doing well, and then having the ability to talk you down from your irrational thoughts and actions. It’s about the importance of surrounding yourself with people who know you so well that they can lift you up when you’re down, and you can trust their advice when times are hard. We all need that sometimes, right?"

Watch: Adrian Marth Releases New single/Video "Hypnotic Eyes"

Barcelona electronic/italo disco/indie dance DJ/Producer Adrian Marth has released the video for his addictive new single "Hypnotic Eyes".

The song is taken from his brand new EP 'Red Nights', which includes two hot remixes from Fabrizio Mammarella and Geneva Jacuzzi, out now via Slow Motion Records/Wrong Era. Grab your copy here.

Adrian creates an unique and fresh take on Italo Disco sounds with his new EP, transporting the listener back to 1983 with his spacey synths & obscure essence. Expect nothing but harsh basslines and filthy drums from the Barcelona based producer. His love for the classic sounds of italo, space, and cosmic disco of the 80’s comes perfectly together on this release. The artist also aims to transform and create a modern EBM/Italo Disco scene, and this release is the first step towards it, according to Adrian.

Restored in 2020 by Lucas Ruggier and Echo Film Collection at Stulus Lumina Laboratory. The restoration used a first generation safety interpositive belonging to the Echo Collection. This element was identified as the most complete and the one presented the best photographic quality after inspecting and comparing 13 different elements. 

Several elements of the walking scenes were unusable so the film was completed using material from a previously unreleased extended cut. .

New Entry: Justine Forever Reveals New Single "Le Revenant"

French producer/singer Justine Forever has revealed her  infectious new single "Le Revenant".

The song is taken from her highly-anticipated debut album "𝐹𝐿𝐴𝑆𝐻" coming later this year through Her Majesty's Ship. Get it here.

Justine Forever's music evokes nightlife in its entirety. Like wanderings after the end of the day, we go from loss of senses to euphoria, from worry to reverie, from blinding colorimetry to elegant black and white. A total aesthetic universe constructed by the French musician as a world apart in which her pieces resonate like a call to abandon.

We open Le Revenant like a trap door to a secret world. Announced by a powerful and catchy kick / bass alloy, the voice of Justine Forever acts like an iron fist in a velvet glove. We “cruise” in the dampness of this little black synth pop nugget that sublimates Baudelaire’s poem here suffused with a dark and minimal modernity.
