Radikal Records Presents Tune In Crew “Don’t Go Go”

 

Vibe

We are proud to announce the newest signees to Radikal Records, the French production duo TUNE IN CREW with their release of “Don’t Go Go” premiered exclusively on VIBE today!

Here’s what the two brothers Harry & Xavier had to say about the release:

“With “Don’t Go Go”, the aim has been to create a wrapping atmosphere that is as smooth as it is strong. We feel this song singularly makes for a great introduction into our musical universe for newcomers, as it is quite representative of the exploration between electronic and organic, old and new, of simplicity and cultural diversity, all central to our approach. We hope you’ll get the sense of joy we had while creating this piece, that sunny something made of rhythm and harmony… Be our guest!”

Brothers from Strasbourg – France, HARRY VEYNAND & XAVIER VEYNAND have long been part of an indeed temporal, thus progressive approach to shaping the spirit of discovery and critical thinking: whether it was during their university education, or through their learning of musical instruments, until their first steps creating music, leading to the assertion of their singularity as artists and music producers duo “TUNE IN CREW”

With awareness of the reality that any artist is beneficiary and partially tributary of already existing creations, they dare the boldness, they dare to take the risk in exploring new forms. Each track is experienced as a search to bring out a new relevance, attentive not to fall into trivializing. It is driven by a will to experiment, with humility and joy, between caution, confidence, and requirement. Given what they have lived, listened to, read, learned and thought -all the more in a time of acute conformism, while the world is truly, more than ever opened up- the 2 brothers find meaning in a music rich of its high diversity.

Indeed, from sunny and warm Caribbean, Oriental and Latin influences, to the edge of modern electronic synths, and with a subtle touch of soulful American music, TUNE IN CREW’s sound is a story of surprising balance, of breath, making for a lively and game-changing kind of Pop music. Having in mind and at heart that “Music has, quite particularly, the prestige of both the unity and the otherness” (M. Edwards), Harry and Xavier embraced that music contributes to the future, as a sketch, binding the individual and collective level, and that is also why music has an inherent political nature.

For this reason, they didn’t hesitate to build tracks around political speeches in their country, in favor of a greater, revalued democratic participation. This outlines the aspiration to add to the already existing free spaces, and be one of these cases which incite to the creative courage: this very confidence towards the unknown.

TUNE IN CREW puts front-and-center… “La joie de vivre”!

Notable Dance Picks Salt Ashes As Song Of The Day

Notable Dance

Shout out to our friends at Notable Dance whom picked Salt Ashes’ “Somebody” as their track of the day! Here’s what DJ Ron Slomowicz had to say about the single:

“Imagine Kate Bush doing a dark synth-pop cover of Depeche Mode’s “Black Celebration,” and you have the initial buzz single of Veiga Sanchez (a/k/a Salt Ashes). For the “official” debut comes “Somebody,” a slick-yet-moody downtempo electronic record with the feel of a New Order side project – maybe Revenge or Electronic. The comparisons to Kate Bush are obvious, but there’s a hint of a Natalia Kills noir in there that gives it an even darker, angelic vibe. While not exactly club-ready, the Cruelty remix adds a new beat with a kind of RAC-meets-DFA vibe. With her unique and ethereal (yet powerful) voice, I imagine that there will be some strong DJ/Producer collabs coming soon.”

CDS Exclusive Interviews Ayah Marar

Interview with Ayah

CDS Music Chart had a chance to speak with Ayah Marar on her recent rise to fame with her collaboration with Calvin Harris “Thinking About You” along with the release of her debut album The Real with the featured singles “Mind Controller,”"Unstoppable,”"Beg Borrow Steal,” and “The Raver.” Here’s what Ayah had to say about her album and what’s to come:

3. When did the plans for your album “The Real” come to mind?

They had been building for a while but it all came together when I met Will Simms and we ‘fell in love’ and decided to make something together.

4. When working on your album, did you sit down and write everything all at once or did you write over a long period of time?

We locked ourselves away for 4-5 months in a dark room and wrote and wrote and wrote every day.  I loved it!

5. Which of your songs means the most to you and why?

That’s would be like choosing a favourite child, they all mean something to me in a different way.

6. What are your plans for upcoming releases, collaborations or tours?

More tracks to come in the new year, collaborations, tours of course. First single of the year will drop soon, and of course it’s very important to me to keep supporting upcoming artists and push the UK scene any way I can through my company HUSSLE GIRL.

7. What helps you write or record music?

Heartbreak.
