Song of the Day: Real Escape (Disco Despair Remix) – Nicolaas

NICOLAAS’ single ‘Real Escape’ gets a refreshingly funky pop treatment by Electronic producer Disco Despair released via Haven Sounds.

The original song ‘Real Escape’ is seductively gritty/groovy, with a playful flair of the haute couture life. While Disco Despair’s rendition retains the masculinity of the original track, it has an added sensuality that almost feels like a dance between partners.

The single follows the release of his debut effort ‘No Stranger Thing’ with remixes by Louis La Roche and Pages with the later released via French music and fashion label Kitsuné. Under his new moniker NICOLAAS, Rob Bakker has already garnered support from Clash Magazine, Earmilk, Mr Revillz, New Retro Wave and Luigi Donatello.

New Track: Domino – Sofia

Rising young Finnish singer-songwriter SOFIA, may just be 18 years old but she’s mature beyond her years. A singer since she was little, the Helsinki born artist is now ready to step into the spotlight with her brand new single ‘Domino’.

Previous singles, ‘Underwater’ and ‘Your Arms’, earned her early support from key Spotify ‘New Music Friday’ and key Finnish influencers, with heavy rotation from the largest Finnish tastemaker radio Yle X.

With ‘Domino’ being her international debut, there’s not much to know about Sofia, but her effortless honeyed vocals and honest lyricism reveal a mature songwriter able to express her most intimate feelings. Somewhere between Billie Eilish haunting ballads, Khalid’s pop-inflected R&B and Anne-Marie’s truth-telling, SOFIA is on the right path to becoming the next Nordic-pop sensation.
