Words By Joey Rochert.

Wicked Expectation are sending a shockwave over the electronic space with their new single, ‘Moving Clockwise’. The band from Italy hit all the right notes here, and we cannot get enough of it!

‘Moving Clockwise’ is the summer treat we have been aching for without realising, and the four-piece smash it out of the park with their offering. The soundtrack is enthralling, and the multitude of sounds which emerge as the music progresses keeps us on our toes for the duration.

Spectral Display, ‘Runnin For Your Love’

Words By Joey Rochert.

Spectral Display are the band that always comes through with the goods, and they have just released one of the most noteworthy new summer tracks! Their single ‘Runnin’ For Your Love’ is like a gift that keeps giving; it grows and shines more brightly with each listen!

The group continually proves why this genre of music will stand the test of time, and they excite us time and time again. Also, each group member rises to the occasion with full force as the electricity flowing through the track throbs.

Kingdumb, ‘Basic’

Words By Joey Rochert.

We are all dancing frantically around the room to the most recent offering from Kingdumb, ‘Basic’. The prolific rate at which the music producer is putting out new songs for us to enjoy hints at the enormous discography that he possesses.

@ Kingdumb.

The song ‘Eastern Peak’, which also makes its debut, has a vibe that is somewhat different to ‘Basic’ but yet works nicely alongside it. It is clear that Kingdumb is driven by his passion for electro, and if he continues to hit all of the right notes—which he is—it is only a matter of time before he competes with the most accomplished players in the game.

Spider Plant, ‘Mountain’

Words By Joey Rochert.

Spider Plant goes old school with his new release, ‘Mountain’. The producer delves into a new area of music production and rises with a baroque-style electronic fused cocktail, one we were not expecting but a track which we have been clinging to since its arrival!

The producer incorporates modern sounds with a nostalgic foundation, and the result is breathtaking. It is difficult not to sway to the relaxing aura the track emits, and it’s proof that Spider Plant can just about turn his hand to anything.

Spectral Display, The Interview Series.

Words By Joey Rochert.

Hello, Michel, Let’s talk about your new single, ‘Back On My Feet’, what is the meaning? 

Basically about the difficult time most people have had because of the pandemic. Finally being able to go out again to clubs, concerts and theatre again.

Which artists in the current industry inspire you the most?

Freemasons, Daft Punk, Mark Ronson, Diplo, Sia

What is the best thing about being a musician in 2022?

Being able to connect with artists all over the world and record with them in their own studio, sending material back and forth.

Is there a certain place you often go to write? E.g a certain room, or environment?

Mainly I write behind a keyboard in my studio, where it’s quiet, right in the middle of Amsterdam and where I can record ideas straight away.

What is your first memory of music? 

That would be in the dance studio of my aunt, who taught modern dance.

Kingdumb, The Interview Series.

Words By Joey Rochert.

Hello, Kingdumb, Let’s talk about your new single, ‘Best Friend’, what is the meaning? 

The track touches on a few things but the key message is that I’m apologising to someone who was close to me. We had different ways of handling things and we just got caught up in a bit of a storm. The track touches on mental health too which is something that is close to my heart and something a lot of people still don’t understand. I think there’s a lot of education and work to do on awareness which is happening now more than ever, but there’s still a long way to go.

Which artists in the current industry inspire you the most?

That’s a hard question, there are many drum and bass artists who I think are amazing at what they do and that scene has some of the most talented music makers on the planet. But in terms of popular music, I’d have to say Pharrell Williams and The Prodigy. Dizzee Rascal is mad talented as well he has done some amazing work.

What is the best thing about being a producer in 2022?

Probably the access to technology and markets. Social media means we can directly communicate with people who follow us and it’s super easy to post online about anything you are doing. 

Is there a certain place you often go to write? E.g a certain room, or environment?

I mostly write in my studio which houses everything I need, but if the sun is out sometimes I like to produce in the garden. I’ve been known to go to coffee shops to make music too. I’ve definitely also produced in the car on long journeys!

What is your first memory of music? 

The earliest I think is probably hearing an Indian soundtrack for a film called ‘1942 Love Story’. I think that’s my earliest memory but there were a few key moments like hearing ‘Charly’ by The Prodigy and ‘Super Sharp Shooter’ by DJ Zinc when I was really young. Those two tracks shaped my musical tastes big time.

Anything else you’d like to add?

Thanks for having me guys and have a good summer!

Kingdumb, ‘Lion In My Heart’

Words By Joey Rochert.

We cannot refuse a vibe, and it is coming from Kingdumb’s latest delivery, ‘Lion In My Heart’. The rapper and producer from the UK are roaring here, and he provides the energy with a sound that stands out instantly!

Motivational with its aura, ‘Lion In My Heart’ is the antidote for all those looking for a kick! It starts with vitality, and the passion does not waiver as Kingdumb progresses through his performance. The beat taps with eagerness, and the synth sounds loop around the mix with pleasing texture!

Lyrically, Kingdumb is a poet, and his story tells us that anything is possible; it is a track about mindset and Kingbumb blazes with his delivery.

Spider Plant, ‘Welcome’

Words By Joey Rochert.

With his latest release, ‘Welcome’, Spider Plant sends a shockwave through the electronic music scene. Also, the new release from the British native is medicine to the ears for those looking for something a little different!

It all gets underway with the sound of rain pelting down outside. A piano arrangement emerges from the mix, accompanied by an electronic digital loop that rattles the speakers in all the right ways. The path is inviting, and Spider Plant keeps us on our toes throughout by introducing a lot of structural shifts as the song advances.

Mujinzo, ‘Delhi Station Drift’

Words By Joey Rochert.

Mujinzo, the Australian based musician, uses a unique blend of acoustic and electronic components to create a getaway from current mayhem. He avoids the orthodoxy of contemporary music and instead takes an immediately indenting path.

@ Mujinzo.

‘Delhi Station Drift,’ his latest single off the same-named EP, is a melodic joy, with many structural shifts and styles colliding to create a soundscape unlike any other. The route is memorable, and it ushers him into a new realm, with the EP’s four other tracks solidifying his place in history.
