Something about a woman’s voice, paired with the sound of an electric guitar just does my soul right.
Over the past four years I have been listening to almost solely music of electronic nature, therefore it is super refreshing to hear bands doing what we refer to as, “crossover” where they integrate sounds from different genres of music into something totally their own…(for now at least).
Satellite Empire has an Indie Rock vibe with lots of electronic notes that help create a beautiful audial landscape to accompany the feels delivered by their emotionally driven lyrics. Self genre-lized as Melodic Dubstep/Metalcore on their Facebook, Satellite Empire definitely inspires something much different than any other artists in my music library (which I am slowly but surely building via Spotify).
Their 2016 EP ‘Thrones‘ has been a mainstay for me over the last few months and I can’t seem to get enough of the last song on the short-but-heartfelt album appropriately entitled, Thrones. Enjoy the fantastic sound of Satellite Empire below, and thanks for reading, much love!

1. having, expressive of, or characterized by intense feeling; passionate; fervent:an ardent vow; ardent love. 2. vehement; fierce. 3. burning, fiery, or hot: “the ardent core of a star“.
Appropriate, I think.
Yes, it is cheesy to define words and artist names, but words are all we have… wouldn’t you agree?
Words mean a lot to me (or at least I think they do).But sometimes, words fall short. Ever feel something you literally couldn’t describe?
Some people have the incredible capability of conveying their emotions via sound and other electromagnetic waves~
Apply the definition of Ardency to their most recent EP ‘For You, Only‘, and I would gather that these guys feel some type of way about the music they put out.
Personally I have been a fan of Ardency since I first heard their unforgettable 2 track EP: ‘Gradience’. Two plus years later, they are crossing over genres and creating a niche for themselves betwixt edm goers and indie fans alike. Now, with an even more defined sound that spans a multitude of decades, one would find it nearly impossible to try and fit them in any kind of box.
And that’s that shit we do like.
Thanks for reading, enjoy.
The definition of unique is: ‘being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else‘.
Enter Justin Hartinger…
In thinking of other artists to liken his sound to, or use as a reference of what to expect when listening to the Seattle-based Producer & DJ, I came up with nothing. My mind went totally blank. This is usually a good sign when discovering new music from an artist.
If you check Justins’ Soundcloud, his creations are self-described as, “emotional dance music”.
I couldn’t agree more.
Whether it’s the (very dark) Darknet EP–collaborated with by one of my absolute favorites, LEViT∆TE.–his bouncy, trap-like twist on the new house classic ‘Don’t Go‘ by the other Justin (Justin Martin) or one of his many other singles that have brought new life to my headphones and speakers…it’s undeniable that Justin Hartinger was put on earth to make good music for you to feel to.
Below all these words are my current top picks of all Justin’s gems (almost all of which are available for free via TONEDEN here).
Thanks for tuning in guys, I have nothing but love and appreciation for you.
Our first artist feature in 2017 is someone whom you’ve probably never heard of before.
(you’re welcome hipsters)
Jeremy Stern AKA palmingo hails from the foggy San Francisco Bay Area, and although he isn’t currently touring as of yet–it will probably be just a matter of time before the public picks up on the saucey sounds on his new and latest EP, ‘Birds Of Paradise‘.
A fan of artists such as: Flume, Mr. Carmack, Sam Gellaitry, and What So Not; his first concert ever was Foo Fighters back in the 6th grade.
Soundcloud lurker since 2011, he is now heating up your Home Stream with #wavy tracks like, ‘What So New‘ & ‘Timeless’ (track No.1 on the playlist below).
His goals in this lifetime are, “to see the Northern Lights, and help the world in some way.” What a nice dude…and to top it off, he’s made his EP available HERE, for free. Now that’s just hella cool.
Feels like it’s been forever. Anywaze, here’s a healthier serving than usual to compensate for our vacation.
We hate trying to describe what music sounds like…especially when it can’t be “genre-lized” In comes 18yr-old Canadian woodland explorer & producer extraordinaire Ramzoid, who has captured our ears and hearts in a wonderful way, just take a listen for yourself ❤
