Demetrius – Black Diamonds

Demetrius - Black Diamonds

Newcomer Demetrius presents a soulful take on techno in his debut release ‘Black Diamonds’, out today.

Having originally begun his career as the singer of electronic/alternative outfit Suntalk, as well as a backing vocalist for both Elton John and Alicia Keys, producer Demetrius Subayar has spent the last few years forging a name for himself within Berlin’s illustrious techno scene. Now going by simply as Demetrius, the New Yorker looks to make a passionate entrance with the release of his debut single ‘Black Diamonds’.

Aptly the same title as the label in which the track is released – Black Diamonds Records, a new Berlin-based imprint from acclaimed house music veteran Joyce Muniz and guitarist Joshua Tennent that caters for all – Demetrius combines his Berlin techno routes with a forward thinking and dramatic synth-driven electronica.

Sounds like: Blood Orange, Suntalk

Gallant – Bourbon

Gallant

Gallant

Gallant is a rising Los Angeles-based star, who has already found fans in Elton John, ZHU and Sufjan Stevens, and now Indietronica. Not bad for a newcomer.

His latest release, ‘Bourbon’, is a smokey and robust track. It stirs with soulful vocals, all topped up with ice blocks of 80’s-inspired synths.

Recline back. ‘Bourbon’ is the perfect nightcap.

Gallant’s debut album, ‘Ology’ will be out on 4 April.

Sounds like: Alex Vargas, Jack Garratt, TENDER, Wølffe, Lucas Nord, Great Good Fine Ok, LANY
