Realm Of Light – [Roxas]

The pressure for rising acts to make a statement in every single musical medium possible as they embark on their rise to prominence has been ever-present throughout the course of history and is still vividly existent today. Impressing on a single-by-single basis is one thing on its own, but it is something entirely different for a promising act to prove themselves in their first-ever project. Building off of this sentiment even more, this situation becomes that much more daunting when one’s rise to prominence is dictated by their rapid release schedule of singles alone, and to burst on a given scene with as much force and talent alike this way, the logical next step would be to take up this task to create something far more ambitious. That situation is exactly where one of the underground’s most recent prodigies in Roxas found himself before releasing his debut EP “Realm Of Light” just a short time ago. The Graveem1nd standout had already cemented his place as one of this year’s most in-demand talents to grace this already-crowded Internet-based scene with a flawless string of singles that all added something new to this limitless talent that we see now — but in …

Hope U Doing Well – [Angelus]

The limitless world of influence that the rising pop landscape is shaping up to look and behave like is arguably the most exciting thing for the genre in quite a long time. Because acts are characterized by their genre-less status, indulging in any given sound or style early on in one’s career is easier than it has ever been before, and this notion is also producing some of the most incredibly dynamic artists as a result. An artist who has been exploring numerous sounds and styles alike for a great deal of time now – while still rising to the forefront of this coming pop scene all the same – is the ever-talented Angelus. The 16-year-old prodigy has made a career out of impressing in essentially any given way she would like to at a given moment, moving from genre to genre as far as influence is concerned to craft her undeniable pop prowess. She dropped what was considered at the time a “breakout” single in Revenge just a short time ago — a track that submerged itself in all things modern electronica to create its momentous, yet completely appealing status as it came to be. But with her recent …

Umru: A Master Of Curation, and Why His Take On “movinglikeazombie” is More Than Just a Remix

As we currently stand today, we have laid witness to what can only be described as pop music’s gradual progression into its most unfounded era yet — an era that has been defined by attitudes and approaches that are just as transfixed with facets of the past as they are with nuanced and forward-thinking attitudes. This surge towards a brand new future has come to fruition due in large part to that very dichotomy as it is, but more so because of the talent that its earliest progenitors showcased while defining those aspects. These now-solidified pop ideals have been and still are in the hands of a variety of camps across the grander music landscape, as this development has resulted in such acts as Dorian Electra, 100 Gecs, and the all-encompassing force of PC Music being the most shining examples of the succeeding sound of mainstream music to come moving towards the future. But with such a blatantly progressive nature infused in this new era’s overall methodology, it is extremely easy to see why developing scenes under this far more widely known cast of influence are springing up so quickly. And perhaps even more impressive is how this near-entirely teenage-based …

Texts – [Angelus] x [Twikipedia]

In such a collaborative setting like the one found ever-so-vividly in the young cast of rising pop talents in their respective Internet-based scene, the essence of having a great deal of chemistry with another act is nothing short of common and even expected. With that being said, these relationships have proven come in numerous different forms and developed between a seemingly endless amount of artists all the same. For a strikingly apparent and obvious instance of this sentiment put in motion, no two acts quite embody this status better than Angelus and Twikipedia do time after time. These two have proven to be one of the most formidable duos when working together in any sort of capacity, and it makes quite a lot of sense as to why considering how duly talented they both are on the mic and on production all the same. The two have created some of the most essential offerings in either of their catalogs this year when working together, and in the case of their newest collaborative effort in “Texts,” the same notion has rung true yet again in the most vivid sense imaginable. These two balance each other out yet again with performances that …

That’s Ok! – [Funeral feat. Yurms and Angelus]

Despite the youthful and free-spirited nature that the grand majority of acts within the upcoming next wave of pop music exude on a day to day basis, they have come to deliver tracks upon tracks that do nothing else but solidify a sense of both comfort and confidence while still keeping those former tendencies ever-so-true. This methodology mostly stems from how effortlessly they come to flaunt their extremely apparent talents, as it truly seems as though they are all in full realization of how incredibly gifted they all are, and instead of hiding that fact even in the slightest, they use it to their advantage to make far more gripping and appealing offerings in the process. That notion is exactly what the trio of Funeral, Yurms, and Angelus have expertly communicated in the most vivid fashion on their latest song together entitled “That’s Ok!” — a straightforward yet momentous track that is without question a highlight of the already-stacked year that each of these three have had thus far. The three deliver their confidence-bursting verses over yet another remarkable job on production from 4am, who flaunts his always apparent versatile nature here with a beat that does very little to …

Money Discussions – [Angelus]

It says quite a lot about a particular artist when they can convincingly perform upon and master any given style that their grander scene has in store. When movements in music occur that are as wide-ranging and divergent as the rising underground hip-hop/pop scene is right at this moment, certain subsections certainly arise within them, but only the most talented and one-of-a-kind acts are able to fully capitalize on each and every single one of these angles.   Among that aforementioned current-day scene specifically, there are few artists that can say they are at quite the same level as Angelus is in regards to exemplifying this sentiment in its fullest effect. She has come to explore a number of different signature sounds within her respective scene on her journey to superstardom, and especially as of late, each and every single time she has done so has resulted in nothing less than perfection.   “Money Discussions” is her latest foray into a brand new area for her — what with its reliance on gritty, intense, and rough hip-hop stylistics reminiscent of the now-iconic “Slayworld” sound. But being as astute and as learned as she is in regards to any style she …

Codeine Dreams – [Nigo Chanel] x [Angelus]

In any pop landscape – past or present – the idea of making your artistry nothing short of infectious at all times is arguably one of the most defining facets that an act in this light could and should incorporate into their sound. This essentially comes down to how one makes their mark on a song through a variety of ways, whether that’s their sheer entertaining presence on the track itself, or even just how catchy and/or memorable that very performance is. To say that Nigo Chanel has practically mastered the art of infectiousness would even be selling someone like him short. Time after time, this rising act has proven to drill his inescapably resounding style into the heads of any and all listeners that have come to experience his music, and in taking in all that he has to offer on the mic from a pure and utter entertainment standpoint, it stands to reason why this is the case through his sound alone.  With his newest single “Codeine Dreams” — he has yet again proven this fact in an incredibly vivid fashion. Nearly every single angle that this song takes results in nothing short of a brilliantly addicting and …

Resolve – [Kuru] x [Dante Red]

The space that the rising next wave of pop acts hold within their respective music scene at this current moment can practically be called anything other than one-dimensional. Nearly every single act working inside this landscape has a great deal of sounds and styles to bring to the table that detract from what anyone could consider their all-around “signature” sound.    For the best picture of this sentiment being put into motion on repeated occasions, one does not have to look any further than some of the most prominent acts at the forefront of this landscape right now. To say that Kuru is among that select group would be selling him short, as just about every single one of his latest string of singles has sounded quite different from the last — all but diversifying his already extensively dynamic catalog in the process.    Even with that being said however, his latest in this aforementioned string entitled “Resolve”is something of an extreme detraction from what might be known as an atypical Kuru offering. This track is an exhilarating offering that saturates itself in the worlds of breakcore and happy hardcore more than anything else — mostly due in large part …

Talk – [Twikipedia]

Despite how limitless, charismatic, and community-centric the rising underground pop scene truly is in its own right, standing out in a wholly unique manner is far more difficult than one would likely think from the outset. More often than not, acts with a striking amount of nuance and oneness to bring to the table will exemplify this through groundbreaking single tracks alone, as is the norm as it currently stands in the scene right now.  But for an artist to truly break through and stand out with an entirely one-of-a-kind sound, while also doing this via an entire project rather than just a single — that makes whichever respective artist in question that much more of-their-own.  This tellingly rare instance was just displayed in one of its most adequate manners yet via Talk — the new EP from Braziallian pop standout Twikipedia. This 3-track offering is incredibly momentous, appealing, and sincerely impressive on not just a single project basis, but also as a moment in itself in the still-young career that is truly just beginning to really take off for them. Though they have been exuding their talents on each and every track and/or project they have come through with …

Revenge – [Angelus]

There are certain moments in artists’ careers that stand the test of time and truly make themselves known as “breakout performances” — moments that stem from months, years, and even decades of effort being poured into the development of each and every one of their artistic facets. These songs end up being resounding, defining, and absolutely era-defining in their own right.    The magnitude held by these tracks are usually few and far between in their frequency — but it seems as though the rising next era of pop music has just showcased the latest example of this notion being laid down. There is no doubt that scene mainstay Angelus has convincingly broken out in every way, shape, and fashion with her newest single “Revenge.”   Each and every factor that this song has in store is forcefully commanding in their own right, all combining to create this unmatched and absolutely momentous tone altogether. This is seen in a variety of manners, but their correspondence makes for one of the most emphatic releases of the entire year.   The instrumental does a great deal of the work in making this entire occasion feel as such — with FromTheHeart’s very own …
