Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.
Saint Lanvain – ‘Oh Bang! Bang! Bang!’
Following on from a string of high-profile festival performances at Solidays, Les Plages électroniques, le Touquet Music Beach, and Virgin Radio Electroshock thanks to the success of his previous single ‘Jesus Loves Me’, which amassed more than 2 million streams online, DJ and producer Saint Lanvain now looks to get our feet moving again with his latest club stomper ‘Oh Bang! Bang! Bang!’ With its bright and uplifting aesthetic, this return is sure to become one of the soundtracks to your summer rave season.
Lex – ‘Drive’
Having been a triumphant force on the US rap scene for the better part of decade now, Chicago-born MC Lex showcases his latest LP ‘exposé’ with the sweeping new offering ‘Drive’. With nods to other cemented names such as Kendrick Lamar and Chance The Rapper, this light and breezy new release delivers a smooth and tender example of his more heartfelt side.
Hektor Mass – ‘Obliterated’ ft. Charlie Rogers
Having already received huge support from the likes of Steve Aoki, The Chainsmokers, DJ Snake and Marshmello for his previous work, Spanish DJ and producer Hektor Mass now returns with his latest anthemic belter ‘Obliterated’. Featuring the vocals of Charlie Rogers, the track was inspired by the dissolution of a relationship, making for a raw and emotive return with plenty of power behind it.
Polo – ‘Witch Hunt’
Following on from the success of their previous dark-pop delight ‘Hula’, Leeds-based trio Polo now look to continue that brooding direction with their new release ‘Witch Hunt’. Taking the same pulsing and atmospheric intentions popularised by the likes of Grimes and Billie Eilish, the group double down on their bold and texture aesthetic with this haunting new gem.
Issermann – ‘Sad + Boring’
With his debut single ‘Throated’ still managing to work its way across the streaming services of late, London-based artist Issermann is now looking to capitalise on his new venture with the release of ‘Sad + Boring’. Matching smooth and sensual vocals with a hard and powerful production, his newest offering makes for a bold and impressive return from a frontman that seems to never put a foot wrong.
