Youngster CAIN PRIDMORE stars at GOODLIFE and drops ‘XERO’ on AtomicSky Recordings
Sometimes joining a DJ competition is a very smart move. Ask young artist CAIN PRIDMORE. He entered for a spot at the Goodlife Festival and after multiple voting sessions he succeeded to claim a mainstage spot. Not bad for someone who just turned 17! Cain is very determined to make music his full time career, but it’s more than just a way to make a livelihood, he lives it and breathes it….
CAIN PRIDMORE’s new track is called ‘XERO’ – a high energy progressive house track with electric guitar synth… It’s a club track that gained quick recognition on several radio shows such as Kazuya De Jong’s Washine Machine, AtomicSky Recordings and on Cain Pridmore’s’ very own radio show called Xcellent Noises.
Before he won the Goodlife DJ competition, Cain always wanted to play at a big festival and as such entered the GoodLife competiton ever since the age of 15 without any luck…
But hard work and persistence paid off big time. He conquered that stage and thanks all those who voted for him, because without that massive support he knows he wouldn’t have had the chance. Cain lists artists such as Tom Tyger, Tom Staar, Kryder, Ivan Gough, Corey James and Nick Galea as people who have supported and encouraged him in recent times. Especially Tom Tyger who shared much of his time and knowledge.
Cain Pridmore: “Its pretty surreal to be able to chat to legends and people who are my idols about my music, I have been so lucky to have them in my corner but also just the added inspiration their tracks and the connection gives me.”
Cain is now waiting to reach the age of 18 so he can tour the clubs. “I’m excited to be able to unleash the music that I love in a dark club environment packed with true music lovers. I love to be able to take them on a journey through the music I choose to play, well, that’s just an honor…”
Snavs & John Alto Release “Headlights” – Multi-Genre Metaphor Of Relationship
Danish export Snavs teamed up with up-and-comer John Alto, also hailing from Denmark, for their new track “Headlights,” a dark Progressive House gem with a strong vocal element. The new single immediately captivates with suspenseful, emotive female vocals cocooned in its cinematic melodies, from which a euphonious and driving bassline blossoms and undulates.
The combination of dynamic and deep sonic production makes “Headlights” suitable for singalongs during cathartic moments or getting down on the dancefloor. Its versatility is a representation of both Snavs’s and Alto’s dynamic styles, which have ranged from Alt-Rock to heavy Bass and everything in between. “Headlights” is out now on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records.
“The track was inspired by the blending of two different music styles, with the heavier bass line and club rhythm, with the euphoric atmosphere with grand and epic melodies, perfect for anthems and large stages. The vocals play a massive part in the completion of the track, with some ear-catching lyrics that are great to sing along to. The song is about a relationship, metaphorically explained through driving at night.” — Snavs & John Alto

Yves V & Sem Thomasson Join Forces On “Sound Of A Beating Heart”
Yves V returns to CONTROVERSIA for his 5th single on Alok’s label and the 2nd one produced with his fellow Belgian artist Sem Thomasson. Their new release – “Sound Of A Beating Heart,” is a melodic Progressive House record that has both emotive and dancefloor elements. Opening with organic melodies, the first half of the track is haunting and minimal, with soulful vocals taking center stage. Yves and Sem up the ante in the latter part, incorporating deep and rhythmic melodies with a downtempo bassline. The song’s lyrics and melody are written by Nathan Nicholson of The Boxer Rebellion band, who as a songwriter, has also written for the likes of Kygo, Gryffin, Calum Scott, Claptone, Tinlicker, KC Lights, Hayden James and more. Yves V and Sem Thomasson previously worked together on “On Top Of The World,” which was released in 2016 on Spinnin’ Records. With “Sound Of A Beating Heart” coming out in 2023, it proves that sometimes studio chemistry only gets better in time.
“We really wanted to create something that would work production-wise in both a club and for home listening. It’s a deep track that still has these light elements to it, the topline expressing something that is quite moving and relatable, yet the progressive and higher BPM beats across the second half make it something that – we hope – the partiers will love too.” — Yves V & Sem Thomasson
Yves V has gained global recognition for his dynamic big room style with releases like “King Cobra” with Don Diablo, “Octagon,” “Direct Dizko” with Sander Van Doorn, “Madagascar” with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and “We Got That Cool” with Afrojack & Icona Pop. He has also remixed the likes of Timbaland, Missy Elliott, Ginuwine, and more. In 2022, the producer was amassing almost 4,5M monthly listeners on Spotify alone and has been supported by heavyweights such as David Guetta, Afrojack, Martin Garrix, Armin van Buuren, and more. His electrifying live performances have wowed crowds at some of the world’s best festivals, including Tomorrowland, Sensation, Amsterdam Dance Event, David Guetta in Concert, and Mysteryland.
Sem Thomasson is an established name in the Belgian electronic music scene. A couple of years back, the young producer and DJ gained international attention with his stunning remix work for recognized artists like Clean Bandit, Zara Larsson, Flo Rida, Nelly Furtado, Lost Frequencies, Steve Aoki.
