Straight from the Gold Coast comes a summery tune courtesy of Australian native Wongo that will have you convinced that you’re posted up on a beach drinking a cold one. Wongo’s “Paradise” is soft and seductive, drawing the listener in with twinkling instrumentals and a muted bassline that is complemented by San Mei‘s velvety voice. With its dreamy feel, the track paints a picture of heady escapism and a sun-drenched love affair that is as hot as the Aussie sun. “This is the first time I have collaborated with a fellow Gold Coast local. When I first heard San Mei, I had a feeling we would be able to come up with something special,” says Wongo of the creation of “Paradise.” “It’s a track that portrays our sunny hometown whilst staying true to the vibes of my production style.” The track is out now on Sweat It Out, which has also released tracks by What So Not, Yolanda Be Cool (who also remixed “Paradise”), Monkey Safari and more.

Wongo wasn’t always making smooth House beats – before he was wooing crowds with his music, he was captivating them as an award-winning breakdancer, winning multiple titles in the UK and Australian Championships. After leaving the dancefloor for the DJ decks, Wongo caught the industry’s attention through his remixes of tracks by Beyonce and Azealia Banks. The party-starting producer also remixed Spank Rock, What So Not, A-Trak, Sweater Beats, and Sluggers. His original productions are just as hot: his track “Be 2 Be” featuring LA vocalist Ducky was both a radio and club success, receiving support from Triple J and all major dance radio across Australia. “Be 2 Be” experienced significant success and was featured across a multitude of playlists resulting in over 800k collective online streams. With support from Claude VonStroke, Chris Lake, Anna Lunoe, Motez, Shiba San and more, Wongo is skyrocketing to the top. Stay tuned for more grooves soon.

BLVMENKIND Shares DnB Single “On My Own” Ft. Tom Wavy
BLVMENKIND just released his new single, “On My Own,” featuring Tom Wavy via Paradise Lost. The Swiss native, currently based in Rüti, dropped his first official single “Dream With You” with Sam Darton back in 2017. An immediate success, it gained over 10 million listeners on Spotify, YouTube, and Soundcloud. Since then, he has received support from Limmattaler Zeitung Newspaper and was selected as an artist to watch in 2020 by the Swiss national radio station SRF3. He has also received support from popular YouTube channels SoundOfSoulRecords, and La Belle Musique and has appeared at RADAR Festival and EXIL Club in Zurich, as well as supporting popular French DJ Fakear on his Talisman 2023 Tour.
Born in 1998, Gabriel Brönnimann, BLVMENKIND, was thrust into music at an early age. At seven, his mother tragically passed away. To overcome the loss, he began making music, eventually picking up the Cello a few years later. But, after locating demo software for music production online, he switched to electronic production. He was deeply Inspired by the likes of Flume, Jai Paul, M83, Pink Floyd, Frank Ocean, Mura Masa, Dr. Dre and many more, eventually opening up his production style to a variety of genres, combining Electronica, Hip-Hop, Pop, Classical music and experimental sound design to create something fresh and unique. Something he could call his own.
“On My Own” is a stunning blend of Drum and Bass and Pop. The sultry vocals of Tom Wavy give the track plenty of emotion and substance, while beautiful melancholic chords and sporadic effects create an incredibly lush sonic atmosphere. Contrasted by the in-your-face DnB drums, the song steadily builds and builds, as the lyrics tell a story of loneliness, grief, and a love-lost. Waiting for the storm to pass, waiting for the sun to shine again, the clouds eventually part for the final break as the track goes full DnB, exploding into life with a massive wobbling bang. It’s intricate, and incredibly well produced, locked and loaded with emotion.
BLVMENKIND had this to say: “‘On My Own’ is a song that I created quite early in the album production cycle in 2018. Back then, it only was a rough demo of a piano melody and a drum and bass loop. It stuck with me because the melody is very melancholic and lonesome but still has an optimistic feeling to it, which very well presented the situation I was in at that point of life but still is relatable today”.
