I like to paint pictures  through music and film, but I don’t  like to star in any of my videos and prefer  to collaborate with people who inspire me. I am fascinated  by literature, music, film and life, and I strive to tell stories across  audio & film to provoke thought and emotion.” –Driftwood

Rising Australian artist Benji Lewis, has given us a glimpse of a carefree ride into the sunset with his new and refreshing single titled ‘Ride.’ A collaboration with LA-based producer Lincoln Jesser that according to Lewis didn’t take long at all to produce as it came with ease to work and together. It’s a propelling yet peaceful track that makes you stop and think about the blessings you have already and making your way through life at your own pace. An important reminder in a fast paced world that couldn’t be more timely as the rush of the holiday season is upon us.

“This  song’s inspiration  came at a time when  I started doing the things  I wanted to do for myself, and  what I felt was right for my career. Everyone  has the right to their own opinion, but at the  end of the day we have the final say in what  we do. It’s about letting yourself relax. You’ll get  to where you want to go in your own time and in your  own way. It’s about looking after yourself and doing what  makes you feel good. Making the most of everything and not putting  too much focus on the destination, but just enjoying the ride.” –Benji  Lewis

This track comes as just a taste of what is to come from this rising artist as he has mentioned he has been writing a good amount to prepare for the coming months. Recently Benji, released his EP titled ‘Together Apart’ that brought us more of his classic, laid back tunes that we can’t get enough of.

Fresh: Duo TAMA UCXI  Drops their latest single “Clockwork”

Fresh: Duo TAMA UCXI Drops their latest single “Clockwork”

Even though the weekend is long gone, music fans can rejoice as we’ve been double blessed by Los Angeles duo TAMA UCXI/ The Duo just dropped their new single “Clockwork” and we are really feeling over here at AH! This absolute banger comes out with war drums to build which quickly drop into an immensely deep, bassy, stadium shaker of a joint. In contrast to their more dreamy synth based tracks of late, Clockwork exhibits a very resonant and grand sound which amply delivers a supply to the bass head demand. Although not unlike their previous release, “Sakura”, UCXI plays closely to their roots in blending orchestral elements with heavy percussion. Their use of brass horns in conjunction with a bass cannons wet dream make this track royal for a turn up of any kind, but what excites us even more is the thought of hearing it live. We chalk up this track as trap Utopia.

Brendan Han, one half of TAMA UCXI, had this to say about their latest release,

“We knew we wanted to make a heavier trap track to follow our previous future bass releases, but the piano melody and the foundation of the song actually came about because we were, at the time, listening to a bunch of crazy Japanese jazz rock with lots of intricate piano and crazy chord progressions. It’s a relatively simple melody, but the movement and syncopation were inspired by really complex pieces. We also wanted to avoid the traditional verse-drop-verse-drop structure so we tried to create a track that really evolved dynamically while still maintaining its original theme.”

The evolution, referring back to their past future bass tracks, is as clear as day. Not only has TAMA kept a consistent quality and creative edge throughout their history of music but in my opinion they have exponentially progressed.

“Clockwork” signifies more than just a new single. It demonstrates the coherent direction of the newly formed electronic duo’s style and stride. Having spent the bulk of 2018 producing and releasing new music monthly they have staunchly carved their groove in the industry vinyl. As time presses forward and the year comes to an end, we are utterly stoked to witness the direction that these two brilliant musicians take in their musical odyssey. We hope to experience TAMA UCXI more in the physical realm at concerts and festivals in the future and can’t wait to hear again from the juggernaut of a duo! Check out their latest track below and don’t forget to follow them on instagram for updates here.

Lastlings Debuts Track On RÜFÜS DU SOL’s New Label Rose Avenue Records

Lastlings Debuts Track On RÜFÜS DU SOL’s New Label Rose Avenue Records

The Australian brother-sister duo is back after almost a year of no releases, boasting a groundbreaking track titled ‘Deja Vu’ as their first release on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s new label Rose Avenue Records. It’s a track that will have you in a mental spin once you leave it on shuffle, trancing yourself into a true deja vu as its syths and layers take you into a deep whirlwind of emotions. A new and mystical dance floor anthem that is sure to kick up some dust and take dancefloors deep into the night.

The duo made up of both Amy and Josh lays out a new sound that they have been working on with Josh on synths and drums, while Amy calls out with deep and soothing vocals, best described by themselves saying:

“DEJA VU, is the first offering from our next project. The song is, for us, a new sound. A sound we have been working towards for over a year now. We’re fine tuning ideas every day, discovering more about ourselves & our music every time we step into the world we have been creating. DEJA VU is especially important to us as what feels like the beginning of a new chapter for LASTLINGS.” – Amy & Josh

This comes after a stretch of no releases from them, but boasts a notion that their time away has proven productive and a bright future ahead of them in the coming months and year. This is largely due to catching the attention of RÜFÜS DU SOL. The trio, recently starting their label ‘Rose Avenue Records,’ with the goal of giving the undiscovered and rising stars of the indie electronic world a platform to be heard, met with Lastlings and automatically connected with their emotion and sound. Lastlings has spent some time recording and writing with them in their Venice studio on Rose Avenue, giving us hope of more to come from them on the label.

RÜFÜS DU SOL on teaming up with Lastlings: “Taste is such a funny thing, when you find people who share your love of particular music it bonds you instantly, you don’t need anything else in common. We had that moment when we met Amy and Josh last year. They played us some of their new music they’d been writing and we were in. At that point we didn’t even have a label set up, we just knew we wanted to be a part of what they were working on and try to share the feeling their music evokes us with as many people as possible.”

VOILA Release New Single: “Don’t”

VOILA Release New Single: “Don’t”

If you haven’t heard of L.A.’s most promising new pop/rock duo, VOILÀ, you’re about to. Backed by a team of industry juggernauts and having opened for artists including Kesha, The Fray, X Ambassadors, Flume, and Martin Garrix, the duo is set to take over with their refreshing, relatable, and authentic sound. Today, with their brand-new single, Don’t, off their upcoming self-titled debut album, we get a glimpse of great things to come.

“Don’t” deals with subject matter we can all relate to: the bitter yearning and heartache of an unhealthy relationship that, in spite of all the warnings, neither party can escape. The power of the song comes from the personal experiences of the artists, Gus Ross and Luke Eisner.

“I can’t control who I fall for. I can only acknowledge and embrace the sensation of wanting what I know full well isn’t good for me.”
– Gus Ross

“Growing up, there was this willow tree in my front yard. I would always try to climb it, but it was tough. My parents would yell at me and say I was going to get hurt, my friends would say I was wasting my time, and I still have a scar from falling. But, what they didn’t know is that when you got to the top you could see the most beautiful view. A view that made you forget every reason you hated the climb. I fell in love with a girl that was like that willow tree.”
– Luke Eisner

Luke and Gus, who met at USC’s Thornton School of Music, bring two unique backgrounds into creative union. Hailing from London, lead singer Gus got his start in music busking in the streets, eventually rising to play gigs and festivals throughout London’s West End, even performing for the Queen. And from small-town Wisconsin, Luke found music through a passion for literature, building his voice as a lyricist and songwriter for a number of Midwest bands, while maintaining a professional modeling career in tandem with his music.

We are beyond excited for the fresh and authentic sound of VOILÀ, and can’t wait to watch them take over with more infectious hooks and catchy melodies.
