‘Neon’ – Julian Lamadrid

Originally from Mexico but born and raised in the United Arab Emirates, the creative 19 year old uncommonly blends a wide array of genres to sonically create a unique and invigorating style of pop.

‘Mansion On The Moon’ – Night Lights

Night Lights are a Los Angeles based indie pop/rock trio with members hailing from Mexico, Japan and Norway. With their eclectic fusion of indie pop melodies, soul infused vocals and energetic rock’n’roll, the band have crafted a unique, dance-inducing sound, which is propelling them to the forefront of the Los Angeles music scene.

‘Wall Dance’ – Lusq

Creating a lush balance between chillpop and indie electronic music, Lusq features powerful soundscapes with soft vocals and baroque styled arrangements. Lusq emphasizes the importance of working on a track from start to finish as a composer, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and sound engineer. In 2018 he signed his first record deal with Armada Records and released both “Daybreak” and “Let You Down” as singles.

His latest single has seen a large amount of recognition through Spotify, being added to their official curated playlist “Chill” with nearly 3 million followers. His debut album is set to be released in early 2019 where you can expect a unique approach to modern pop and electronic music.

‘Heartbreak’ – SARSAPARILLA

SARSAPARILLA is a bedroom producer and songwriter who mixes elements of reverb drenched 80s pop with eclectic samples to create something like dreampop.

In 2018 SARSAPARILLA teamed up with singer/songwriter Rubaiyat Howlader (Slowships) and producer Pete Holz (Gang of Youths, Peking Duk) to bring their songs out of the bedroom and into the world. Together the trio are working on an EP which is due out in early 2019.

‘Hold The Stars’ – Mason Harms

Laramie Wyoming based singer/songwriter, Mason Harms makes melodic and memorable, guitar driven music. Born in Englewood Colorado in 1996, he often got in trouble for playing the drums on his desk. His parents tried to solve the problem by buying him conga drums for Christmas and enrolling him as a percussionist in the school band and in the choir. Mason played drums in his church for years until he picked up the guitar near the end of high school and began leading worship. From there, he played guitar and sang for a variety of churches and campus organizations. It wasn’t until August of 2017 however, during his senior year at the University of Wyoming, that Mason first started writing music.
