Louis La Roche talks about the album,” Saturday Night Griever was written from April 2017 – June 2019. I set out to make this a collaboration record, with vocals on every song. It’s very much a Pop record, which is something I’ve delved in but not fully explored before. All the collaborations were done remotely except one, which was recorded at The Old Hit Factory in London. The albums title and opening track were inspired by what I was reading in 2017 about UK music venues closing, nightclubs struggling and people not going out as much as they used to.”

April 3, 2020 Lycio release sultry song ‘Nighfall’

Lycio release sultry song ‘Nighfall’

Alt-pop group Lycio have officially released their sultry single, ‘Nightfall’ via Lycio Records.  Their previous achievements include, but are not limited to headlining at Sofar Sounds London, live acoustic sessions aired on BBC Introducing, and performing at Alternative Escape 2019. They have also supported acts Rae Morris and Self Esteem. 

The group consists of Genie Mendez(vocals and writer), Charlie Kellie (keyboard) and Alex Lowe(drummer). Singer Genie usually writes lyrics about her current mental state, expressing her thoughts on life. Lycio’s main objective is to empower other females in the music industry, especially in terms of safety, where the band ensures that their fans feel safe and secure when coming to their live show venues . The group members cite various musical influences including Alt-J, Jack Garratt, Janelle Monae, London Grammar, Jungle, Bonobo, Grimes, Charli XCX, Haim, Tim Hecker, Fickle Friends, Imogen Heap, The XX, and Chvrches.

Lycio shares how ‘Nightfall’ came to be, “To be blunt, this is a sexy song. This song makes me feel sexy. Lyrically I don’t want to give too much away as I’d like the listener to draw their own conclusion, but the chorus line “keep your body close to heaven” in itself is fairly provocative. When I wrote the lyrics, I wrote them in a headspace of raw sexuality, I wanted there to be an air of hunger throughout. Down to the way it’s sung, the drawl of my vocal. I want this track to make people feel things and feel a certain way. Funnily enough I had two tracks in mind when writing the lyrics, Wicked Game (Chris Isaak) and Mondo Bongo (Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros), which are both equally saucy songs. So there you have it, Nightfall.”

March 19, 2020 Singer Donna Lugassy produces Love & Breakups EP

Singer Donna Lugassy produces Love & Breakups EP

Producer of her new EP release, Love & Breakups, Donna Lugassy is on the path of success. Besides producing her own music, Lugassy has collaborated with artists like VINAI, 22Bullets, Kittball Records’ Robosonic & Ferreck Dawn, as well as DJ Sidney Samson’s Deadly Zoo project. She has also featured on influential Youtube channels like Spinnin’ Records, MrRevillz, La Belle Musique, Basshall Movement, FunX, and Tribal Trap. Her total stream count is fast approaching 4 million. 

Luggasy grew up in the Netherlands with her family who is a mixed range of cultures and  ethnicities. As young as ten years old, Lugassy’s talent for singing was noticed. She would at the age of fourteen years attend formal singing lessons. The young songstress would also move on to producing music by herself, as she lost interest in waiting on others to help her make her dreams a reality. Years later, Donna would graduate from Codarts University of the Arts in Rotterdam. 

Donna Luggasy elaborates on her new EP, “In  ‘Moonrise’ there is the push & pull of first getting to know someone. Then ‘Coldest’ is the part where I have fallen for this person and I’m head over heels thinking this is the one I need. ‘Nobody (loves like I do)’ is the part where there are beginning to show cracks in the relationship and I am so invested, letting the other person know I’m all in and would do anything for them. ‘How Bout You’ is about the other person not coming through for me as I feel that they should have and false promises are getting too much. ‘Break Up’ is where I’m getting fed up with the bullshit and reject the other person and get a real big attitude with them and then followed by ‘I wish’, where I feel like I made a mistake by breaking up with them and I have regrets on what I did, rejecting them. Then its usually a wrap and I start all over with a new person back at Moonrise… That’s when the next relationship is starting, to do everything all overagain and repeat the pattern.”

Jonas Blue and singer-songwriter Tifa Chen releases a new song ‘Billboard’

Multi-platinum superstar Jonas Blue has linked up with Chinese singer-songwriter Tifa Chen on new single ‘Billboard’, out now via Positiva/Virgin EMI Records.

A weightless, carefree slice of modern pop, ‘Billboard’ sees Tifa switch between English and Mandarin vocals, with Jonas delivering a typically polished production to match. It also comes with a captivating official video shot exclusively in Shanghai, with the nation’s hyper-modern cityscapes proving the perfect backdrop for the track’s vibe.

The track was co-written by Jonas alongside songwriting royalties Madison Love, who’s previously penned hits for the likes of Halsey, Machine Gun Kelly and Camilla Cabello, and Sam Roman, who co-wrote Lewis Capaldi’s global smash ‘Someone You Loved’ as well as hits for Demi Lovato, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Elton John, Clean Bandit, Disclosure and Little Mix. Jonas and Sam have previously collaborated on a number of tracks, with Sam co-writing Jonas’ singles ‘Mama’, ‘Rise’ and ‘Polaroid’ (with Liam Payne) and recent single, ‘Younger’ (with HRVY).

One of the most recognisable talents in China, Tifa Chen was the runner-up in the Voice of China contest in 2016, becoming the nation’s ‘Best New Artist’ the following year.

Jonas met Tifa Chen when he played EDC China festival last year when the Nanjing-born artist played him her infectious single, ‘Hustle’. A few months later, Jonas was writing ‘Billboard’ and had the idea of Tifa taking a look at a Mandarin translation of the song. She recorded her demo (keeping the chorus in English) and straight away Jonas knew that the resulting track was a hit.
