Mr Sanka’s “Flight Mode” Is Released On Beat Club/PMR Records

Mr Sanka's "Flight Mode" Is Released On Beat Club/PMR Records
“Flight Mode”
is arguably one of zestiest-sounding tracks to be written about a flight to London: seemingly as inspired by Supertramp-meets-Paul Simon via the bass-driven prowess of Daft Punk, or the melodic guitar lines of Phoenix.

The first thing you need to know about Mr Sanka is that he’s not French. He’s also not a ‘he’. Pulling from three diverse life journeys, Mr Sanka flourishes with a cosmopolitan diversity that belies nationality. Dutch singer and visual artist Nick van Hofwegen, together with London-based producers Mustafa and James, found each other by chance when they were all working in Los Angeles. They immediately hit it off, drawing on their mutual love of classic-era 60s and 70s pop, French House, and soon formed a band which was pitched somewhere between the two.

The long-haired leader of the pack is singer Nick van Hofwegen, who you might recall as frontman of music-meets-art project Young & Sick (Harvest/Capitol). Young & Sick has already earned Nick fans in Skrillex, Maroon 5 and Foster The People (whom he’s designed artwork for) as well as former touring buddy Chance The Rapper. Nick’s an artist in the truest sense – his music is so vibrant and visual because it’s the brainchild of a trained graphic designer, who fled a small village in The Netherlands to explore Berlin, before spending a few formative years in London, Brooklyn and winding up in LA at one point with just $100 in his pocket. In Mr Sanka, a band named after a character in Cool Runnings, he’s gearing up to win the race.

HEART FX And Joe Jury Are Getting Us Warmer With Their New Single “King Without A Throne”

HEART FX And Joe Jury Are Getting Us Warmer With Their New Single "King Without A Throne"
After releasing their first single “Thinking Of You” on Flamingo Recordings, the Austrian duo, HEART FX consisting of Markus Schulz & Mario Staniek, mesmerize us with their newly-born release with its tongue-in-cheek title, “King Without a Throne“. As the leading voice softly goes “I’m looking for a place to settle down, yes it’s hard to find the shelter in this town“, it transfers us to the cavernous space created somewhere above our heads, reminding us that everybody gets lonely and nostalgic at times. And so do HEART FX, bewitching us with their music sensibility and mysterious aura. You might be a bit surprised that the following label is responsible for the release. It’s the Dutch Big & Dirty brand, previously standing for edgy club sounds, are now redefining themselves. As they say about their new direction “We aspire to travel the world, only to worry about deadlines. We encourage freedom of speech, still rather stay quiet than cause a scene. We aim for real friendships, but spend valuable time on our phones. Yet we find balance in music. (…)‘Cause music works like a drug.” However, if we are to believe that the most glorious form of art is, indeed, music, then – Big & Dirty and HEART FX get along perfectly.

Both, the mysterious yet symbolic title and seemingly fairytale artwork for the cover of the single, “King Without A Throne” touch us with their enigmatic and sensitive aura. Still, the production, with all its halo does not bring any naive or shallow atmosphere to the track, but it perfectly suits what we would love to hear in cold, autumn evenings or what we would like to dance to on vivid dancefloors being surrounded by electronic music lovers. Just like HEART FX like listening to sad music when they’re down and dance in their rooms when they’re excited. That magical set of contradictions is smoothened by music which keeps them in balance, and “King Without A Throne” makes an excellent example to believe that our fresh duo, HEART FX cannot imagine life without their queen – music, herself and they will surely surprise us with their next, forthcoming singles.

Chelsea Cutler – Wake Up (Remixes)
Out now through Ultra Music comes a wicked pair of remixes inspired by Chelsea Cutler’s ‘Wake Up.’ The East Coast hailing singer and songwriter has just signed with the prestigious label, and this month sees both Sondr and Cuebrick take on her enigmatic single.

Sondr is up first with a delicately lilting remake, providing well-placed percussion and an easy sense of groove – layering Cutler’s vocals in waves over the top. The Cuebrick edit opens fluidly and with an air of serenity, before adding dynamic drum patterns, expressive chords and gathering tension with its progressive energy.

This remix package is a great introduction to the sounds of Chelsea Cutler, and both featured artists have put forward high caliber versions of the powerful ‘Wake Up.’
