Song of the Day: Loving You (So High) – Freddie Future

Rising dance-pop musician FREDDIE FUTURE‘s single, ‘Loving You (So High)’ released via Physical Presents is gently lifting, thanks to its ,melodic and shimmering style and caressing basslines, where the Toronto-based artist bathes his light vocals in fresh electronic tones.

Freddie Future says of the single: “’Loving You (So High)’ was the first track written for this new project, and instantly I knew there was something special here. The song is about being so consumed with a desire for someone that their love feels like the best drug you could ever have. It’s that ultimate state of euphoria you feel when you truly love that person. The song started with a few vibey chords but really came together once the catchy vocal hook was made. “I get so high off loving you. So high, so high, so high”.”

Over the years, Freddie Future has been supported by noteworthy publications, including CLASH Magazine, Exclaim!, Variance Magazine, Northern Transmission, Toronto Guardian and Canadian Beats. With over 2.6 million plays across platforms, the artist has been featured on the Youtube channel MrSuicideSheep numerous times as well as on Spotify’s New Music Friday Canada, Fresh Finds and Just Vibing, Outliers playlists.

Song of the Day: Our Song – TheFatRat (ft. Cecilia Gault)

Gaming Music legend THEFATRAT, popularly known for his immense online following of over 5.6 million YouTube subscribers and extremely popular songs like ‘Unity,’ ‘Monody (feat. Laura Brehm),’ and ‘Fly Away (feat. Anjulie),’ which have over 800 million streams combined, follows up with a catchy new collaboration, ‘Our Song.’

The chill electronic single features the sultry vocals of singer/songwriter Cecilia Gault, popularly known for the 2019 hit ‘Love Me Like You Used To’ with Kaskade and the Top 10 Billboard Dance Bop ‘Parallel Lines’ with Zookëper. ‘Our Song’ is the fifth song revealed from TheFatRat’s debut album, PARALLAX, available now on all digital streaming platforms.

Our Song’ is a track that I’m particularly proud of. Emotionally and sonically, it’s very different from anything that I have done before and it opens a door to a new sonic world that I will further explore in the future,” said TheFatRat. “It’s special to me because it’s almost an anti-electro track. Unlike most electronic music, the drums are loose and often off timing. Also there is no Autotune or other pitch correction on the vocals. Everything is rough and natural and still the track sounds unlike anything that I have ever heard before.”

TheFatRat and Cecilia Gault have worked together in the past on his 2018 single, “MAYDAY,” which was co-written by Cecilia and performed by Laura Brehm.

5omerset Joins Up With Rapper J.Roque For Brand New Single, ‘Said To Me’

On the surface, 5OMERSET‘s brand new single ‘Said To Me’, is a breakup song with a retrospective mood enhanced by confusion and resentment. Beneath that, it’s about the desire to gain closure — moving on from the past and cutting ties with any toxic relationships or behaviour.

The light electronica piece features J.Roque who he met after running competition on TikTok looking for rappers to duet the song with a verse.

5omerset said of his collaboration with J.Roque: “after reviewing lots of amazing submissions, I chose J.Roque’s verse because lyrically it was the best fit for the song.

My favourite line of his is: ‘should I wait or is it love that I’m choosing?’ Don’t stay somewhere stagnant or in an unhappy relationship or state of mind; choose love for yourself.”

Electronic Producer Ben Everything Shares Meditative Single, ‘Cold Window’

Serving as a preview into his forthcoming debut album, ‘Music I Had To Write’, BEN EVEYTHING‘s captivating ethereal ballad, ‘Cold Window’, soulfully blends elements of dark UK electronica accompanied with a powerful and raw journey of self-reflection.

Ben reflects ‘I remember clearly one day, looking in the mirror and having an epiphany moment you only hear about in eastern philosophy or evangelical vice documentaries – the person looking back at me wasn’t the same person I was telling myself in my head.’

In its musical elements, the track takes inspiration from Fourtet and Joji and combines meditative piano with a vocal that is infused with the producer’s obsession with Dave Grohl’s performance on Everlong. This creates a subtle backdrop for the listener to go deeper into the lyrical theme of self-reflection.

‘Cold Window’ is the second single of the forthcoming album, ‘Music I Had To Write’, slated for release in Winter 2021. Have a listen below…

Song of the Day: Together Forever – Von Marlon

After a separate personal and musical split in quick succession, VON MARLON‘s alias was formed as a solo project after living abroad. The name derives from a Mike Skinner lyric, whose music along with other underground
alternative pioneers of the UK scene greatly inspired Von Marlon’s sound, which offers a mix of
Hip-Hop, Ambient, & Dance inspired alternative pop songs.

His single ‘Together Forever’, is about the dreams and hopes one can have for a relationship, not only when dating someone but also with a greater sense of connection in general. It was created during the past year and evolved from the current global situation; the longing for when everyone can come back together again and the feeling of excitement that that moment will bring.

Garnering attention with the two singles ‘Searching’ and ‘Tripping’ on independent radio stations such as Absolute Radio and Amazing radio, Von Marlon was then featured in The Unsigned Guide’s June ’19 Spotlight, before signing a sync deal to Max Music Publishing.

From this, ‘Closer’ was synced on an episode of Queen Sugar, the US TV show broadcasted on Oprah Winfrey’s network OWN, whilst also being listed in Ditto’s ‘Chartbreaker’ Spotify playlist.
