Producer Ben Alessi is back with his dynamic new track “Only,” premiering today (Mar. 2) exclusively on Billboard Dance.
“Only” perfectly embodies a completely dysfunctional yet addictive relationship. Alessi’s vocals soar and weave beautifully into the atmospheric, full production, as he sings lyrics like, “Only want it when it’s not mine/ You only want me, want me when you’re high.”
Not only do we get a new track from Alessi, Billboard Dance also has a teaser to the Nnamdi Simon-directed “Only” video, expected later this month. The track follows the release of “U,” which was treated to a stellar remix by Michael Brun, and Alessi’s debut EP is set to drop in 2017. (more…)
Italian artists PRZI and SLVR have teamed up withNew York-based vocalist Jon Moodie to deliver their genre-busting track ‘Open Road’. With euphoric synths and soaring,melodic vocals, ‘Open Road’ is a bona fide high-energy roller destined to take the airwaves by storm. Out on Italian imprint Nameless Records, ‘Open Road’ is available to purchase now via all digital retailers.
Utilising anthemic piano, scorching synths and epic orchestral instrumentation, PRZI and SLVR have created a genre-bending electronic masterpiece with ‘Open Road’. Combining elements of Electro, Progressive House and DnB with ease, these two budding Italian producers have placed themselves at the forefront of electronic music innovation. With Jon Moodie lending his powerful voice to the intensely emotive lyrics, ‘Open Road’ proves a delectable blend of high-energy production and raw emotion.
Jon Moodie is a stellar addition to ‘Open Roads’; a powerful solo performer, talented songwriter and frontman of the prolific Jon and the Jones, Jon’s soulful tones are sure to captivate the most discerning listener. The multi talented star has already a host of his own songs represented by Big House Publishing, to which he is signed as an exclusive songwriter, and frequently features as the vocalist on other artists’ tracks. With a new EP on the way and the addition of ‘Open Roads’ to his already impeccable portfolio, Jon is clearly an artist to watch.
Though both PRVI and SLVR are relatively new to the scene, SLVR being just 20 years old, they have already begun to place themselves as serious contenders within the electronic sphere. Hailing from Lecco in Italy, PRZI has been writing electronic music since he was 19 years old; using this experience to hone his stagecraft, the producer can associate himself with a slew of established DJs including Sidney Samson and Gabry Ponte – with Nicky Romero himself premiering PRZI’s recent track ‘Django’.
SLVR can boast of similar acclaim from artists like Tommy Trash, Don Diablo and Stafford Brothers, as well as Sam Hunt, whose ‘Take Your Time’ cut was remixed by SLVR this year. Along with Moksi and Borgore, Hyperion blog also listed SLVR’s as one of the top 3 sets at last June’s Nameless Music Festival. With high praise from all corners of the scene, both PRZI and SLVR have bright futures ahead of them so make sure to stay up to date with them via theirsocials below.
It’s only been a few months since the young multi-instrumental producer FØRD made his debut with the song “Take You Down” ft. Grace Hughes. In his first original release, he was able to establish a melodic groove and delicate orchestration that was lively but not overbearing. It was a blend of pop and future beat that rolled over with ease. For his second original release, he teams up with the New York-based rapper Fueg on the track “Touch”. He shows a darker heavier side of him, flexing trap sounds while still having a forward-thinking edge. There isn’t much to his catalog yet, but what is out there is promising.
“Kuren is on fire in 2016…New York-based vocalist Ben Alessi adds layers of emotional and power to the single through his soaring vocals, which pair up incredibly smoothly with the piano-laden instrumental crafted by the emerging producer.” PILERATS
“Ben Alessi’s crisp vocal work is a huge highlight of the track, adding to its already uplifting atmosphere.” THEINTERNS

Why hello to you magical people who managed to Google my name (congrats on being able to spell “Mohamdioua”!) and found this post. If this if your first read or you follow my rambles I would like to welcome you to another moment in my life. I know, it has been a while and you have probably been exasperated in my absence. I’m sorry… I’M SORRY! But life has been busy lately w all our writers and collabs.
Sound the alarm, Francis Mercier has done it again, this time teaming up with 1WayTKT for another burning house jam. Titled “Oceans Away,” this latest release is an absolute oasis of luscious bass and blissful ambience. Hitting off strong, velvet synth pads float amongst driving percussion as Cassandra Kubinski’s vocals begin climbing throughout the track. That topline is crushingly beautiful, and the wealth of transcendent production and atmospheric melodies evoke a return to the roots of dance. Good luck trying not to melt with this one, and don’t wait to grab “Oceans Away” for yourself, available now via Beatport, courtesy of Ego Italy.
