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.

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

Yaeger – Dopamine High

With her new single “Dopamine High”, the 20-year-old emerging Swedish artist named Yaeger lets us enter her world; a bubbly, adventurous and yellow one, with surprises in every corner. The single is inspired by the ecstatic and releasing experience at raves, where the story of “Dopamine High” takes place. It’s about two young lovers, who after an intimate and electric first meeting, they do not dare to let their desires guide them back to each other. Instead, they get caught up in careers. Each hurrying, and looking for something they cannot define. The core feeling of the song is the thrilling moment when they meet again and ignore all the questions about when and why. “It’s that Dopamine High of feeling alive”, Yaeger explains.

Ainslie – Grow

Vicky Warwick is a British artist, operating under the moniker of Ainslie.

Ainslie comes from a world of being a called upon side-woman in the music industry; as a session musician she was hired for many musical artists and occasions, whether it be playing a sweaty sold-out show in Florida with Charli XCX or appearing on award shows with Cee Lo Green.

Her first job in the music industry was as the in-house bassist with the renowned pop-production house, Xenomania (Cher, Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys, Girls Aloud, Sugababes). It was such a privileged insight into how pop music was made, Ainslie soaked up each experience there. Whilst she was always writing music, she didn’t really take her own voice seriously until a few years later on.

Her need to make music started as a form of anxiety – the good kind – when she would spend months away from home on the road. So starved for personal time, she itched to be spending whatever time she had writing music; whether it meant finding a quiet corner of the tour bus, or an unoccupied room at a venue. For a long time, she didn’t know what exactly for, until she was penning ideas she knew she didn’t want to give to anyone else.

She had been writing songs in her home of London, and many other places over the world, but the project wasn’t fully realised until she moved to New York City in 2017. Something changed when she arrived; the colours were brighter, the people wilder, the ideas more far-fetched. Inspiration struck. Whilst taking some time off from long-term touring, she settled into the city and to the idea of putting out the songs she’d been singing to herself for a while. As she was getting out there, trying to meet and collaborate with the many creatives of the city to further her session playing career, it made her see that she should nurture the thing that was hers, and hers only. The thing that she could take with her wherever in the world she was. She realised it’s importance, and how in a whirlwind lifestyle of a touring musician, it was something that could be a constant. Her view of being a musician and not an artist had to shift, because it was time to break out of the mould she had made for herself.

Ainslie’s music draws from personal experiences but she also likes to imagine the world from other’s perspectives and explores themes of fantasies, inner thought and also comments on suburbia and aspects of our everyday lives. She claims to have felt a strange phenomenon since the birth of this project, a kind of synesthesia that when envisioning her music and the project, conjures images of pastel pinks, blues and turquoises, the sea and water, plants and soft textures of fluffy candy floss or velvet.

Her single Grow observes idyllic suburbia, and the human need to climb up the ladder of society. “I found myself walking in this beautiful neighbourhood being curious about the stories behind each person or family inside each house. Wondering if they are as happy as I imagined they were. What seemed like a perfect world, might be not what it cracked up to be, and I considered if it was what I would want for myself anyway. Society has taught us something we should strive for, so part of me was longing to live that life behind one of the perfect front doors, but part of me also felt a disconnect; it was far from what I truly want in life.”

Jade The Moon – The Tide

Jade The Moon are an independent alt – pop band that consists of Dani, Benjamin and Jeremy who started making music from the age of six. They released a brand new single, “The Tide” as the second feature track from their upcoming new album, 11:11. The group says that the collection of tracks on the upcoming release are best described as “musical photographs”. A moment in time turned dance party, true story turned love song, a daydream turned eerie alt-pop lullaby. Real world inspiration. This is the follow up to the group’s self-produced 2015 debut release Habits and Hindrance sees the continued theme of “cycles” in human nature.

“We self produced our first record and our current record ’11:11′ was produced by Colin Munroe …except ‘HOTELS’ by Adam King. We are always very involved in every set of the creative process but it really helps to have some in the room to make sense of all the ideas. We are always looking to collab with new writers/producers. @mikkyekko if your listening ;)”

Anna Dellaria – I Choose Me

LA-based pop-meets-R&B songstress Anna Dellaria returns today with her new single, “I Choose Me.” The anthemic new tune will also be heard on TV Land’s critically-acclaimed show Younger, starring Hilary Duff and Sutton Foster.

Premiering today on The New Nine, “I Choose Me” is a powerful anthem for anyone who has ever felt apologetic for who they are or are not. Driven by tight production, Anna’s smooth soulful vocals captivate during intimate verses before booming with unbridled power on the refrain.

On the powerful meaning behind “I Choose Me,” Anna writes, “It’s an anthem for anyone who’s ever been manipulated, taken advantage of, or felt worthless for not fitting some ridiculous standard. In which you choose to commit to yourself and honor who you are, whether or not people are going to like or understand it. So often we are told to hide the parts of ourselves labelled as “flaws”, instead of looking at them as pieces that demonstrate strength, authenticity and character.  ‘I Choose Me’ is the moment you decide to say “f*ck that – I’m enough” and aims to allow those vulnerabilities to empower us instead of living with them as chains we can’t break and must make up for. ”

In keeping with the spirit of the song, Anna will also be donating a part of the proceeds collected from the song to Girls Inc of Alameda County. The organization gives girls from underprivileged neighborhoods the opportunities and resources that can help shape them into strong, smart, and bold young women.

A recent graduate of USC’s prestigious Thornton School of Music, Anna has truly honed her vocal and writing skills over the past few years – and it shows. She kicked off her career singing backup vocals for legendary acts such as John Fogerty and Chaka Khan.

Anna stepped into the spotlight last year with her single “Bolder,” landing a prominent sync of TV Land’s Younger and surpassing over 325K Spotify streams. With a rising profile, prominent furniture company Ethan Allen tapped Anna to sing in a national campaign that aired during the 2018 Academy® Awards.

Translating lyrical singer-songwriter catharsis a la Jeff Buckley through bold Aretha Franklin-style delivery, Anna Dellaria is quickly carving out a place of her own in the music industry.
