Ronika – Marathon

Ronika

Ronika

Nottingham songstress Ronika is back with new track ‘Marathon’ and it’s a corker!

The self-written and produced ‘Marathon’ jumps straight into Ronika’s smooth Chaka Khan reverberating vocals and has a classic disco and soulful electronic vibe to it.

The song’s lyrics refer to that rush of energy you get when falling in love, and the high you get which makes you feel like you could do anything, like running a marathon.

Ronika’s ‘Marathon’ EP is her first new material since this summer’s acclaimed ‘Selectadisc’. The EP will be released on 1 December.

If you want to catch Ronika, she will be performing on 17 October at STFD‘s ‘The Summer After Party’ in Brixton, London. See below for more info and click for link to tickets!

PWNDTIAC – Hey Girl

PWNDTIAC by Sascha Bente

PWNDTIAC by Sascha Bente

We absolutely crave the music produced by this German musketeer, PWNDTIAC. Describing himself on his facebook page as “The PWNDTIAC cruises around with heavy basslines, crispy drumsets and cheesy synths. Nothing new so far, yet there is something about it… and you won’t be able to find out until you hop on for a ride, bitch!”

And that is exactly what Indietronica has done…as have a few others including Aeroplane who has included ‘Hey Girl’ on his ‘Not-So-Monthly Mix July 2014‘.

The video follows Maike Mohr and Tessa Achtermann looking very cool dancing around a city. The track is nu-disco at it’s finest and we especially love the deep sax interlude mixed in with the early 80’s bassline.

The EP was released on 30 June via We Love This Rec and includes a just as infectious track called ‘Ready’ feat digitalfoxglove, as well as remixes by Justin Faust and Douze. You can buy the ‘Hey Girl EP’ here.
