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 …

Another – [Saturn] x [d0llywood1]

Even in such a young and still-developing scene as the coming next wave of pop acts moving forward, the essence of experience and craftsmanship effectively shines through within few artists who have been pushing this sound forward for the longest time — far longer than most of their contemporaries at that. That is a title that both Saturn and d0llywood1 can hold extremely close to their own respective artistic statuses without question. Though the landscape they find themselves in is completely saturated with an endless amount of acts – most of them being talented by themselves in some sort of manner – these two are responsible for paving the way for what will soon be considered across the board as one of the most influential periods in music history within this new millennium. That is how influential both of their work has become up to this point, and it is easy to see why when noting their exceptional prowess in not only going down as genre-defining, but also genre-creating. So it is no surprise that these two would come through with such a seamless, spotless, and practically flawless new offering together as they did with the recently released “Another.” Seeing …

I’m Okay – [Stef]

In a scene that is made up of artists who – by any means necessary – work to differentiate themselves from their contemporaries, standing out in a unique manner as far as one’s entire artistry is concerned is not just a daunting task, but a necessary one. To truly make an impact in this day and age and amongst this group of talents in particular, one must genuinely go above and beyond in setting up an unprecedented musical approach about themselves. But that seemingly rare and unfounded feat has been remarkably accomplished by practically each and every artist at the forefront of this progressing Internet-music scene in its own right, which speaks volumes to the fact that we are dealing with one of the most legendary and outstanding periods in the history of music alone due to this fact by itself. And to say that Novagang’s very own Stef is perhaps one of the most shining individual examples of this sentiment in effect would be the most blatant understatement imaginable. Stef has gone out of their way to absolutely carve out the most singular niche for themselves as they stand so close to the equal amounts of talent in that …

ihonestlygaveup – [d0llywood1]

Arguably the greatest facet of independent and/or “underground” music is that artists in this light have quite the telling amount of room to be as transparent and genuine as they would like. That level of sincerity shines through due to the lack of explicit barriers in their way from external sources, and if anything else, the ease of access that the Internet age has granted this very music landscape has made that fact even more vivid in the process. That exact notion is something that d0llywood1 has quite literally always carried within her art, no matter the given circumstance. Be it her music or otherwise, Dolly carries with her a heightened sense of transparency and artistic integrity that not many others in her wake can say they have; not a single act comes even close, really.  She has just put this sentiment on quite possibly its clearest showcase yet with her newest single“ihonestlygaveup” — a track that doubles as an absolutely remarkable artistic feat through the music itself, and a wholly vivid representation of the unmatched place Dolly finds herself in within her current scene and beyond. If the title did not make it clear, or one is just not …

Stone Ocean – [Blackwinterwells]

In any rising music scene – regardless of its perceived level of meaning and/or significance – the act of properly noting landmark moments is an absolute necessity in both evaluating how that very scene has progressed to the point where it has today, and also predicting where it might go from here.  These moments are certainly seldom for any musical movement in this light, there is simply no doubting that — but when a scene finds themselves transfixed with the approach of saturating the market with single after single from a seemingly endless amount of emerging acts, these all-too-momentous events become slightly easier to pick out, but are that much more exlusive in the process.  That is exactly where Blackwinterwells had found herself within this incredibly prolific next era of pop music in the recent past. She has essentially been the world that this scene has revolved around since its earliest signs of resurgence, what with her all-encompassing and blatantly consistent production work across the landscape as it stood, so it’s only fitting that she’d be the one to come through with an equally encompassing full-length project of her own to serve as one of those landmark events in its …

My Agenda – [Dorian Electra]

This skyrocketing and ever-so-advancing new age of music moving into the coming decade practically begs for a fresh crop of talent to lead the way and take up the mantle of what can only be described as a never-before-seen era of pop music. That very crop has been on the fringes of superstardom for quite a long time now – brewing in the underground and adjacent areas since the late 2010s – but as we stand in 2020, it seems as though the time has come to conclusively establish and cement the next wave of pop and the unfounded talents that encompass the coming landscape.   And who better to be at the absolute forefront of this rise than the blatantly iconic Dorian Electra — an individual who has already proven their prowess as one of pop music’s most forward-thinking and unmistakably talented figures with their past singles and critically acclaimed debut project Flamboyant. Their own stance in this rapidly advancing music world has already been solidified tenfold, but instead of stopping there and basking in their already exceptional glory, Dorian has just now gone above and beyond to truly usher in the next era of pop music.   They …
