I feel it in my face – but better. This track gives me all sorts of feelings. Andrew Applepie, this lovely producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, you name it, shows us a very sensitive side of his in this ode to… well, we’ll probably never know. But does it matter? This one’s cute, it’s sweet, it’s beautiful and I feel it everywhere!
Running to the dark like I’m a light I need the contrast to be satisfied-wipe out-
wanna touch the air with my tongue
See I’m wasting away tasting to fail
Mind like a landscape easy to read but I got enough to keep me
Hiding away, hiding away, hiding away
After the release of their singles, ‘Places,’ ‘Miles Davis’ and ‘Clouds,’ FYE & FENNEK now release ‘Dark Lights’– another electronic-pop track with the essence of summer in Berlin from their debut album Separate Together.
Sings front woman FYE before breaking into chorus. The sound of ‘Dark Lights’ is reminiscent of Berlin summer nights, chasing youth and a sense of freedom, feeling eager to exchange innocence for excitement. It releases alongside their debut album, ‘Separate Together.’ Their first release, ‘Places,’ accumulated nearly 400k plays on Spotify in less than a month after release and landed several New Music Fridays across Europe along with Indie Radar in Germany. ‘Clouds’ reached #1 in Hypemachine relevancy only two weeks after release. Their European album release caught them attention from Italian Billboard magazine who offered raving reviews of the album and a week of social media support. The Berlin based duo will venture off next as support for the LUI HILL European tour in October.

Sonnengruss is back! Well, he was never gone just busy playing live gigs all over Europe with big names like Alan Walker, Robin Schulz, Felix Jaehn, Fritz Kalkbrenner… (you want me to continue? ;)) As Dj & Sound Designer he knows how to combine powerful Dance Grooves with grande vocals (often supported by live acts on stage) and his trademark – catchy guitar licks that go straight to your feet. On countless festivals like the Loveweek in Croatia where he’s been a resident over the last four years, he demonstrates his successful style time & again.
And as simple as his formula might sound – making people happy and giving thousands of party animals an unforgettable time filled with love, joy and sweat – he’s one of the most honest and down to earth guys we’ve met over the last couple of years. This pays off not just in real life, I haven’t even started to tell you his success story in the digital matrix:
Sonnengruss went to Hypem Nr.1 twice in 2016 & 17 and Universal signed his first official release Day & Night right away. He is monitored as the one German dance act that still hasn’t reached mainstream, although Remixes of his tracks got played in public TV and have and had been placed in several Spotify dance playlists on peak positions. Just his latest official Release, a modern interpretation of the 80ies classic ‘Talking In Your Sleep‘ with the German youngster Richard Istel gained over one million plays on Spotify within a few months. despite having any promotion.
And now this Banger! SG delivered the one remix we were hoping for and turned ‘Love Me’ by Reece Lemonius into a track very reminiscent of Dennis Lloyds “Nevermind” or Matt Simons “Catch & Release”. Reece’s tribute to his broken love got turned into a vibey, vivid, soulful dance track whose guitar will be stuck in your head for ages.
This original track by Reece is just way too powerful and another remix of “Love Me” is just going super sayan or viral while garnering over 9 Mio YouTube plays in 3 weeks, and the story is a remarkable.
And who’s Reece anyway with this breathtaking voice, charismatic lyrics and flawless songwriting you’re aksing? Yes – that’s worth at least another post (on Monday) and definitely only the first chapter of the next big (love) story we’re about to share with you…

A solid track by my good friends T & D & J. Got around to blog it after working the long hours today. It’s 11pm – so you owe me another one fellas (reminder ;). Here we go, not gonna repeat the long press release.. quick note from myself, i enjoy where they are taking their label , especially this artist and this very tune – artsy yet solid style with a good singer and has a Shymalanesque change of feel, halfway through it. Already knew the song from one of you label guys and i’d figured this was gonna be one of, if not the strongest tune Lui Hill has to offer (sorry have to ignore the CAPLOCK – it’s 2018). Enjoy and make sure to spread. Find the whole social shabang-a-bang below. Lui Hill Ftw!

Lovely gem by Todd Kessler. Picked this post a few weeks back but didn’t get back to write this post. Finally here it is and definitely worth checking it out. Give this very heartfelt and warm tune. This is one of those tunes that caught me totally off guard, but should be really playing on the radio with it’s quality & sweet songwriting.
