Equus Recordings Shows No Signs Of Slowing Down After A Big 2018

Published

on

Equus Recordings
Equus Recordings is a label you may not know yet but should keep a close eye on in 2019. Based out of the USA and founded in late 2016, the independent label is running full-speed in their 3rd year after repeated success this past year. To put their second full year into numbers, Equus had two Number 1 releases on Beatport (back to back), 7 Top Ten releases, and 13 charted singles across ten genres. If that doesn’t say well rounded, what does? With the success of their releases, they also saw support by Flosstradamus, Ephwurd and Ape Drums on their release Rite Bacc by Dembowyz feat. Lil Thicc Bihh.

Diving right into 2019, the label has wasted no time continuing its success with SAGA and Bashment YC pulling back to back Number 1 Releases on Beatport this past month. Leading up to this week, Equus is shooting for an astounding 3rd Number 1 release in a row with newcomer to the label Dream Chaos.

With all of this in mind it is shaping up to be another big year for Equus Recordings as they carry on with the same mindset they were founded by. Push quality music by talented artists. Forget about popularity and business politics and focus on the music by showcasing those who are passionate about their art. Equus is set to have their milestone 50th release this March just in time for WMC/Ultra and if you were curious about who it might be, here’s a hint:

DJ Phonon
continues to dominate the Dance-Pop airwaves with a brand new song entitled “Straight Up Lonely”. With tropical-esque beats, I think it closely resembles Major Lazer‘s popular hits. What’s more, British electronic musician, Burial influenced DJ Phonon’s music in a big way. In addition, the infectious and emotive vocals of George Gleeson turn the whole composition into a sing-along piece. Feeling lonely? Then, pay close attention to the lyrics of this anthem that will surely touch your heart. Stream in full right here via Spotify.

Denis First & Reznikov Release Emotional Yet Dancefloor-Friendly Tune “Empty”

Published

on

Denis First
There aren’t many tracks that hit home both emotionally and on the dance floor, but Russian producers Denis First & Reznikov have mastered the art of that complexity on their new single “Empty”. Featuring groovy yet haunting melodies and a futuristic but progressive bassline, the track fuses these contrasting elements with soulful vocals that evoke a lonesome, wistful feeling. “Empty” conjures images of long solo drives through the dark, empty streets in the middle of the night, letting the open road serve as medicine for heartbreak until the dawn begins to creep up from the horizon. The new release is out on Enhanced Music and follows the artists’ recent “Shameless” and “Move On.” Check out what they had to say about “Empty” below:

“It didn’t take forever to record this song – it was actually pretty quick! When we first heard the vocals, we knew how the music would sound so once we got to the studio, the idea was here already – all we had to do is to implement it into music. “Empty” turned out pretty emotional, and it makes you wanna dance and think about something significant at the same time.” – Denis First & Reznikov.

STREAM/DOWNLOAD

Denis First & Reznikov are academically trained music producers who first combined forces to make unofficial remixes of their favorite tracks. This eventually led to their first official release in 2016, which has progressed into official remixes for iconic artists such as R3HAB, Galantis, Cash Cash, Nikki Vianna, Madison Mars, Janieck and others. With the release of “Empty” and earlier tracks, the two have proved to be just as dexterous at original productions. Keep an eye out for Denis First & Reznikov as they continue to flex their talent with more new music coming soon!

Smile Happy People
UK Music Producer Deltiimo & India’s SHRAi collaborated for the first time on “Smile Happy People”. Look at the song title itself, obviously, this new track is synonymous with feel-good vibes. If you’re going through a rough patch, then this is a good motivational Dance-Pop anthem that will motivate you to start the day with a smile. Remind yourself, think positive will lead to positive results.

With crystal clear vocals + meaningful lyrics, this song encourages listeners to show the world that LOVE is strong. After all, I think that’s the best remedy for all the problems. The radio mix and the Summer Vibe version showcases the chill side of EDM, while the Euro, and Festival remixes will keep the dancefloor moving. In other words, an EP for all tastes in music.

Exclusive Premiere: No Joke Release An Emotional Yet Energetic Track — “Wanna Go”

Published

on

No Joke
Rising Music Production duo No Joke combine acoustic guitar chords with electronic music elements on “Wanna Go”. An emotional yet energetic new single that just makes you want to bob your head to it. Frankly, I think this anthemic song is more suited to radio than clubs. Throughout their career, these guys make sure all their vocal tracks have a balance between meaningful short lyrics and thundering EDM drops.

Not for nothing, they’ve reached 130,000 streams across digital platforms such as SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon music. Add to this, the impressive singing talent of Nora. As I listen to her words, I fall deeper into the narrative aspects of “Wanna Go”, which is filled with pure romanticism. Whether you’ve been in love before or not, you’ll surely like this one.

#1 Billboard Dance Artist Kendra Erika Heats Up The Season With “A Deeper Love”

Published

on

Kendra Erika
#1 Billboard dance artist Kendra Erika and Grammy Award-winning producer Damon Sharpe unite for a fifth time on “A Deeper Love”, their powerful new song that urges listeners to dig deeper into matters of the heart. “We millennials have spread ourselves too thin by searching for approval and validation on social media from people we don’t even know,” Kendra explains. She believes millennials need to concentrate on the important people in their lives and find ways to express their love more tangibly and substantially so that the person on the receiving end really feels it. “That may mean exposing our vulnerability and even risking rejection,” she warns. “A Deeper Love” is being released globally and is available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, and all other major retailers as well as for streaming through Pandora and Spotify. Its music video is on Youtube.

“I believe the word ‘love’ has many layers,” Kendra reflects from her South Florida home. “The deepest layer of love can only be attained when we start seeing the good and potential in everyone.”

This applies to today’s gender equality movement. “#MeToo has made a lot of progressive moves for women,” Kendra continues. “But I can’t help but feel that a movement that initially was meant to even the playing field has fragmented the dynamic between sexes where the man’s perspective has been dimmed, over-shadowed by the woman’s word or perspective.”

“At the end of the day, we are all human and in order to achieve “A Deeper Love”, we must love and respect one other equally,” she says.

Kendra Erika is a singer/songwriter based in South Florida. She was trained in classical and jazz music but draws inspiration from artists like Lana Del Rey, Solange, Ellie Goulding, and London Grammar who make sentimental music that is felt in the bones. She successfully employs bold and often poetic messages to her club beats.

Her first single, “Oasis,” climbed to #9 on the Billboard Dance Chart in 2016. “Under My Skin” reached #6 in the summer of 2017 and “Self Control,” released in celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Laura Branigan’s classic song, hit the #1 spot in January 2019.

All were produced by Damon Sharpe, a producer who has worked with a wide array of pop artists including Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Kylie Minogue, Kelly Rowland, Monica, 98 Degrees, Anastacia, and Natalie Cole.

“The success of Self Control taught me to trust my instinct,” Kendra Erika reveals today. “I knew if I tweaked its message just a bit, it would speak to today’s listeners.”

She aims to do the same with “A Deeper Love”, a track she fell in love with the moment she first heard its mesmerizing beat. “I was on the stair master at the gym and the minute that beat dropped, I almost fell off the machine with it, it was so good!”

She says she related to the song’s understated strength. “As I’ve grown as an artist, I’ve really come to embrace my individuality. Where I used to try to hide my individuality by blending in with the crowd, I’m now grateful to be different. I appreciate myself more than ever before and that’s what I hope my music inspires in others: acceptance and love of self.”
