Will be opening up at Zedd On The Rocks on June 19th, 2019 alongside Hippie Sabotage and Snakehips.

“CRAYOLA the EP is a retirement from the early stages of my artistry and into my deeper darker personal struggles. As I approach the age of 24, I realize my music has matured into something much more emotional and honest. That being said, the songs are flooded with immaturity, youthfulness, and a punch to the gut. I now see things differently as an adult, having to deal with the everyday bullshit that was once foreign to me as a kid. The lyrical content itself shies from popular topics like the culture surrounding drugs and violence and truthfully embraces things like failure and anxiety. My favorite part about the EP is how unsystematic the tracklist is, reflecting my impulsive imagination. Each song offers a different vibe. I want both kids and adults to fuck with this. I’m not targeting any audiences, just simply painting my mind onto a canvas for anyone to enjoy.”

Petrie – texting you

“Quirky pop duo Petrie build on their propensity for lovelorn millennial lyrics on ‘Texting You’.” – The Line Of Best Fit

Throughout 2018, Petrie launched a string of tracks which captured their uniquely multi-textural pop flavour, all of which now can found through the open doors of the duo’s Superstore .

Complex summarises Petrie’s style as “a combination of tender songwriting, upbeat rhythms and bursts of colourful melody,” while PopDust said that after listening “you’re so immersed and hooked for life,” and Hidden Herd couldn’t resist “irresistible grooves, sun-inflected sonics and unshiftable earworms.” All of this and much more you’ll find in plentiful stock over at Superstore , and look out for the sweet deal that is newest single ‘Texting You’.

Speaking about this bittersweet pop tune, Petrie say: “Texting You is one of the oldest songs on the record, born in the summer of ’17 as an impressionistic poem-turned-jazz-ballad. We’ve lost that poem now but it started something like: “Last May we met and fell in love/you told me everything at once/I felt free, like summer/like the birds tattooed across your back”. How that became a big sad banger with 808s and lyrics about George’s Ford Fiesta is a mystery lost in the sands of time. However, that stanza can act as a prelude not only to the song it became but also to Superstore as a whole.” And expanding their thoughts on the Superstore collection, the band share: “Over the course of the album that idyllic love affair slowly crumbles into madness and then into warm, fuzzy nostalgia. We’re proud to say that this narrative inspired an eclectic set of songs,
ranging from quiet defeat (Was That a Kiss?) to rhapsodic and heavy diatribes (Punch, which features our deeply inspiring friends Clive Mercury and JESS).

FEMME – What You Gonna do

Her shows are now fully DJ led, along with her own music. There are also dates scheduled in USA and Mexico before coming home to London, UK to play a residency which will see some of her closest friends in music come and DJ over April in Peckham.

What You Gonna Do is a fun and dumb track dedicated to all those people that never want the party to end. Those of us that cling on to the last remnants of every weekend whilst hurtling towards Monday morning with the stamp from the night before still inked on the backs of our hands.” (FEMME).

Manatee Commune – Famous ft. Cassandra Violet

Manatee Commune is on track to become a major electronic breakout artist in 2019.  With two extraordinary singles already released from his forthcoming album, PDA, Grant has again crafted another highly personal homage inspired from his childhood memories.

His latest single, “Famous,” tells the story of the seduction fame has on a young and naive dreamer.   

“I wanted to capture that feeling every kid has when they are alone, rocking out to their favorite song, fantasizing about becoming rockstars or celebrities. To illustrate that titillating feeling when not only have you made it to the top but are also envied by every person you’ve known since childhood. And how that ‘feeling’ is misunderstood and really pans out if/when you actually achieve of success.” – Manatee Commune

The collaboration with Cassandra Violet delivers sparkling vocals that elegantly detail the trappings of fame, over Manatee Commune’s beautiful, timeless production. “Famous” is a happy, feel-good tune that articulates the benefits and trappings of fame.

Manatee Commune has made quite a name for himself in dance music since his debut three short years ago. A native of the Pacific Northwest, this electronic based, classically trained multi-instrumentalist has ignited a wave of fans since his nationally aired interview on NPR’s Morning Edition and being named “best electronic artist” by Seattle Weekly.

The music is as unique as his name. Equal parts bouncy, glittering beats and cool contemplation, Manatee Commune’s compositions capture the sensation of taking a self-reflecting journey through the forest. The productions are masterful arrangements of field recordings, textures from nature, surfy guitar licks, rolling arpeggiated sine waves and classically influenced viola melodies.

Over the past years, he’s performed at SXSW, Bonnaroo, What The Festival, Decibel, Bumbershoot and Capitol Hill Block Party as well as toured with Odesza, Slow Magic, Emancipator and Blockhead. His flamboyant live show at Sasquatch! caught the attention of dance music aficionados; energetically bouncing across the stage from violin to guitar to drums to keyboard while vibrant, moody, projections of pastels & floral visuals behind him.

Manatee Commune’s 2016 self-titled album on Bastard Jazz Recordings explored the symphonic territory of electronic music, combining dance-driven beats, cosmic overtones and whimsical, complex melodies. The album instantly became a fan favorite with over 4.2 million streams on Spotify which eventually led to remixes for Petit Biscuit and RAC.

It’s this connection with nature that is fueling his emotionally creative approach to electronic music, and paving a path for a uniquely stunning album later this year. Add in a continually evolving live show and unmatched stage presence, and the future is looking bright for Manatee Commune and his following of passionate fans.


Slayyyter – Mine

Slayyyter is a 22 year old pop artist from St Louis, MO who was recently named “the future of pop music” by FADER. Slayyyter’s music draws inspiration from Heidi Montag and Courtney Stodden accompanied by social posts reminiscent of the MySpace and AIM eras. Cosigns from Grimes, Charli XCX, Kim Petras, and more have helped her quickly amass a cult following, growing rapidly on Twitter and Instagram. With eight singles released to date, she is currently working on a debut LP and embarking on a US headline tour this summer, dates below.

Slayyyter really is the future of pop musicr” – FADER
“Slayyyter is music’s internet princess” – V Magazine
“Electro-pop newcomer Slayyyter serves shades of millennial pop, bringing everything from Britney to NSYNC to mind..” – Billboard
“Slayyyter Is 2018 Pop, inspired By 2007 Britney, Lindsay, and Paris – PAPER

Slayyyter has released a viral brand new single “Mine.” The single debuted with Billboard Magazine here and is available to stream now here. Prior to release, a 10 second snippet of “Mine” garnered 500k+ views across several fan-made dance videos and reposts.

Speaking about the song, Slayyyter told Billboard, “I first heard the demo when I was in LA in December, Robokid played it for me at a session and I fell in love with it. Good Intent wrote the first version I heard and I immediately felt like it was a hit. I got home, after putting it off for a while I finally recorded the vocals for it in my closet till like 7 am. It’s basically a bouncy lovey-dovey house track about wanting someone really bad. I got the first mix back and posted a 15 second snippet of the chorus on a whim and twitter lost its mind. I hope people show the song as much love on Valentine’s Day as they did the snippet! It’s the perfect soundtrack for drunken sex in the back of an Uber!”

Slayyyter has announced a headline tour of US dates this June, with support from Robokid and Boy Sim. These tour dates will be Slayyyter’s debut live performances.

Pierce Fulton – Overthinking Rain

There’s not much to do in Vermont…Though the combination of cold weather and small isolated towns do force an extremely bored kid to get creative. Now it’s 1998, picture Pierce Fulton at 6 years old, sitting on a tiny guitar amp with similarly tiny guitar in hand, begging his parents and family friends for song requests.

Long before his time as a DJ, Pierce Fulton was pleasing crowds with covers of all 60s-70s era classic rock, having no idea what kind of impact this would have later. Fast forward a few years and those song requests turned suggestions of various genres and eventually different instruments. A quick ear helped him in first picking up the guitar as a child and later moving onto drums, piano, trombone and more.

Pierce Fulton has always had this fascination for taking a concept from one instrument or genre and applying it to something new, an activity that would later define the core of his music. Now with 15 years of classic rock, reggae, blues and even a bit of metal and classical music under his belt, you can imagine how strange Pierce’s first interaction with electronic music was.

Somehow this small high school in Vermont was blessed with an incredible music department entirely run by two teachers, a husband and wife. One semester of Pierce’s senior year involved back to back music theory and electronic music production classes and another course in music history. The electronic music course taught students the fundamentals of production programs, basic synthesis/sound design, and sampling in addition to studying the history of iconic electronic music from the likes of Kraftwerk, Aphex Twin, Frankie Knuckles, and more. It was a revelation having had no real exposure to this world, growing up in such seclusion, so far away from club culture.

You might know Pierce most for his songs Kuaga, No More, Losing You & Landmines but with his recently released Borrowed Lives EP and debut album Better Places, he goes back to those early musical roots. “I’ve played some sort of music since I was a child,” says Pierce. “Anywhere from a guitar to just banging sticks on stage as a 5 year old at my aunts wedding, I’ve always ‘done’ something. Electronic music was the first time in my musical lifetime that I stopped playing things and started clicking and dragging. It’s a blast because you can be a one man band, but over time I realized I lost a lot of what made me a musician. I still can’t even play my guitar as well as I did when I was 14, don’t even get me started about drums or piano. With my songs like Landmines and No More, you can hear the live music sneaking it’s way back into my life but Borrowed Lives and my album Better Places are my first full steps back into being a musician again.”

Now 25 years old and based in Los Angeles, Pierce is still subject to the habits of his youth; bouncing between genres and instruments while simultaneously bringing all of these influences into the dance music he’s known for. When he isn’t out on the road, playing shows around the world, not too much has changed about those quiet, cozy nights spent in the studio.

SYLK – ALL IN UR HEAD (Feat. Daragh Locke)

SYLK are a female electronic duo based in Ireland. Their sound is noir-pop with an edge, melodic while industrial, laced with distortion and a heavy bass that compliments their underground aesthetic. It is the blend of these elements that create SYLK’s signature darkwave sound, which compliments their energetic live show where they incorporate intensive visuals. They began their musical journey with the release of ‘Am I Alone’, followed by their acclaimed EP ‘nwyr’, which led to standout appearances at Forbidden Fruit Festival, Body & Soul, Hard Working Class Heroes, Electric Picnic as well as headlining the legendary Button Factory– to name a few. Ireland’s foremost music blogger, Nialler9, described them as an exciting “cross between Massive Attack and FKA Twigs”, and the premiere music magazine Hot Press classing the duo as ‘having already established a reputation for themselves as being a darkly mysterious, neon-soaked duo. SYLK are doing everything musical to establish themselves as an emerging Irish act.’

“Something tells us SYLK have an insatiable desire to infiltrate our airwaves and crawl under your skin. Y’know, we might just let them.” –GOLDEN PLEC

Cihan Ozaman is a producer, singer and songwriter known as Kemelion. He was born in Istanbul, grew up in Paris and went to school in Hannover. Currently he lives in Stuttgart and often commutes to the Alps, where he works with the producer Joe Styppa aka Jaime (drummer of Cro, Cassandra Steen, Estikay, KMN Gang) on his debut EP, which will be released in spring 2019.

His striking voice complements the 26-year-old with huge choirs and harmonies. He describes his own musical genre as “Modern Electro Pop”. Kemelion does nothing be behind his music. He becomes one with it. In March 2018, Kemelion had applied for the nationwide band promotion Play Live. Against 60 artists, he made it through live performances to the last top 4. In December 2018, the final took place at the Scala in Ludwigsburg where he convinced the jury again and earned a slot at the 2019 Stuttgart Electronic Music Festival.

Princess Nostalgia – Ode to boy

Hailing from three generations of female artists, Princess Nostalgia was encouraged to express herself from a young age. Born on Tiber Island in the heart of Rome, her childhood unfolded amongst the ruins of an ancient world. This bittersweet sense of the past has informed her outlook ever since.

At 8 years old, she moved with her mother and brother to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her father remained in Italy (their shared love of Kraftwerk, D’Angelo, and Chic has been the basis of their long distance relationship). The sharp divide between the two worlds in which she lived led her to develop a fascination with the feeling of nostalgia—which became not only a familiar friend, but a source of inspiration (hence the moniker).

In the fourth grade, Princess Nostalgia picked up the double bass. Ten years of classical training opened her eyes to the endless potential of musical composition, and an insatiable itch to do it herself was awakened. The subsequent discovery of Logic Pro X gave her the freedom to manifest this potential on her own terms.  Inspired by a wide array of genres including funk, r&b, electronic, and pop, Princess Nostalgia taught herself how to compose, arrange, mix, and master her own music. Despite the toxic aspects of being an artist in the age of social media, she is immensely grateful for the vast reserves of free information the internet has to offer, as she acquired many of her skills through youtube tutorials and music tech blogs.

Furthermore, her artistic background has allowed her to create her own album art and to direct and edit her own music videos. Headstrong and self-reliant, she takes pride in the knowledge that everything you see and hear is a product of her own creation. Today, Princess Nostalgia is a philosophy major at the University of Verm.
