N2BLÜ return with a warm and strong Electro ‘Phoenix Heart’

Synth pop and Independent electro dance pioneers N2BLÜ return with a hot, warm and strong new single entitled ‘Phoenix Heart’.

‘Phoenix Heart’ delivers a strong personal message of strength and resilience through hard times and pain.

We asked Jonathan Arceneaux what the song was about and he said ”

‘Phoenix Heart’ is a very personal song for me. I’ve always identified with the legend of the Phoenix in that I have had to start over many times in my life, picking myself up from the proverbial “ashes” and move forward to the next chapter. It takes an incredible amount of strength and will to keep going after we’ve been knocked down in this life and we all have to have a Phoenix Heart to survive it. This song is dedicated to all of those who don’t give up and don’t quit, no matter what.

Born in New Orleans, Jonathan Arceneaux started singing not long after he learned to talk and hasn’t stopped singing since!

At a very young age Jonathan began his career as a singer in a church choir and started taking voice lessons in both classical and musical theatre styles. During his High School years in Baton Rouge, LA, Jonathan continued singing in the choir and participated in several musical theatre productions.

He also started to tap into his writing talents as a freshman in High School, drawing inspiration from some of his favourite bands and artists like Better Than Ezra, Duncan Sheik and Savage Garden.

Over the years following, Jonathan began to realize that his true passion was singing and writing Pop music, so he changed his focus from classical and music theatre to be a full time Pop singer/songwriter.

He is a passionate, true artist with emotional expression through his writing, production, and performance. Jonathan also enjoys collaborating with other artists to meld unique tastes in sound and texture.

In 2008 he worked with hit producers I-ROC (Universal Music/HappyMadison Productions/BZEE ROC) and RADIO (Chris Brown’s “Dreamer”/Blake Lewis’ “End of the World”).

As a result of the collaboration with RADIO in 2009, Jonathan released “From The Ashes”, under the name Jay Arseno, his sophomore follow up to his debut album in 2008, “Face In You Crowd”, under the name Jonathan Adam.

After the loss of his father to kidney cancer in August of 2009, Jonathan took some time off from music and in 2013 he decided to move from his home in Houston, TX to Los Angeles, CA for an immersive experience in the heart of the music industry.

While he learned a lot about the industry and himself, Los Angeles was not a good fit for him. So, in 2015 Jonathan decided to get back to his roots and move back home to the Big Easy, New Orleans. Not long after moving to New Orleans, Jonathan met Konstantin Smorodnikov, a personal trainer originally from Russia who had a love and talent for music as well.

Jonathan and Konstantin had an instant connection as friends and decided to start working on music together. While Jonathan came from more of a pop music writing background and classical vocal training, Konstantin’s background was in the club and dance music scene.

The next couple of years lead to the duo developing a seamless blending of Jonathan’s lyrics and vocals and Konstantin’s beats and instrumentation to create a sound all their own. In July 2018 they were approached by Loren Israel to participate in his song writing mentorship program.

Little did Jonathan and Konstantin know that this would be an integral turning point in their musical journey.

After a year of instruction, guidance, and tough love from Loren and by honing their skills in song writing and lyricism, they have emerged as the duo, N2BLÜ.

Born and raised in Kostroma, Russia, Konstantin Smorodnikov fell in love with music at early age. It was the structure of rhythm and arrangement that most interested him.

Around 15 is when he was introduced to computer music production.

At 18 moved to America where spent most of his 20’s going out to local dance clubs and learning all he could about technical side of production and sound engineering. He drew inspiration from DJ’s like Peter Rauhofer and Abel Aguilera.

In 2016 he met Jonathan Arceneaux. They realized that they both shared a passion for similar sounds and ideas in music and decided to give a musical partnership a shot.

The incredible ‘Martin Brothers’ Bring an 80’s Sheen back to life with ‘So Cold’

While the days are getting cooler and darker, so does the new single of the Two Brothers.

“So Cold” is the name of the new hot track that takes the listener right into the heat. It’s a kind of the cold and darker answer to their previous single “Looking For You”.

Of course, you’ll find all the Martin Brothers ingredients like the glittering synth-sounds, the spheric retro pads paired with a sing along chorus. But this time they added a touch of R&B to get the catchy groove constantly going. It’s one of those tracks that really capture the vibe of a big city night and mystical romance.

Imagine you drive with your car through the neon streets of Los Angeles, Bangkok and so on or walking down the stairs to an underground club, well So Cold will definitely bring you right into that mood.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the Martin Brothers, if they didn’t also capture this feeling in a music video. Be sure not to miss that nightshift on YouTube, while they are heading right into the heart of downtown Los Angeles at midnight.

Listen to the song and ask yourself… will these “cold eyes” catch fire again?

Garage Rock is alive in ‘Ohio’ USA with ‘The Small Town’

Introducing The Small Town. A garage rock project fronted and founded by Chris Bianchi.

What started off as a muse for creating during the quarantine only a few months ago, has turned into a new outlet that is quickly gaining momentum! Hailing from Mantua, Ohio, a small farming village right in between Cleveland and Akron.

The debut EP titled “Let’s Blackout” features three exciting tracks. Kicking off with the dancy “Can’t Stay Awake” leading into “Let’s Blackout” a more foot tapping rock n blues style. Lastly, “Ticket To Ride” hits short and to the point with a repeating catchy chorus that gets stuck in your head.

When asked about The Small Town, Bianchi had this to say “The Small Town project was a long time coming for me personally. The name is derived from literally where I live and am from. There’s nothing here. I’ve gone through a lot of changes, especially, over the past year and this really inspired just laying down what I felt at the exact moment in time. No second guessing. It was so freeing to do so at least on this debut effort.”

You can discover a standalone song as well online with “Grey Day’s and Darker Nights” that has a very garage rock early white stripes feel.

There’s plenty more to come from this exciting project.

Former metal singer Hudson Henry is a producer and DJ who creates melodic electronic music with bombastic drums. After debuting with “Feathers” in 2016, he began releasing more guest-heavy feature tracks. His songs have appeared on Raver Magazine and Liam Hemsworth’s Legend Video.

Hudson has amassed over 450,000 streams on “The Last Time,” featuring Lisa Cimorelli. In 2019 we were featured on the official “Fresh Friday” playlist, which was absolutely incredible. Hudson came up with a unique way to market his song “The Last Time.” He offered fans something called a “digital gift pack.” When fans would pre-order the song, they would receive a digital booklet that thanked each fan for their support. The digital book included lyrics from the song, the official artwork, and exclusive content fans could enjoy while flipping through each page.

This was a personal and unique way fans could connect with Hudson Henry and Lisa Cimorelli. The song itself has a heavy future bass drop along with a beautifully crafted vocal melody. This has been Hudson’s most popular song yet.

What are your influences ?

“My influences include Kygo, Illenium, Aphex Twin, and Diplo

What’s coming up in 2021 for ‘Hudson Henry’ ?
