PREMIERE | VALENTINE Makes TSIS Debut On Bright Experimental Single "Falling"


Rising artist VALENTINE is someone to keep an eye on this year. He’s been making a name for himself, pumping out forward-thinking dance tunes left and right and harnessing his unique sound design. VALENTINE is gearing up to release his debut concept album, Falling, which tells the love story of him and his fiancé. The album will be dropped track-by-track in the form of “episodes,” paralleling its storytelling archetype. We are excited to premiere the first episode today, which consists of the the album's titular track “Falling” featuring Chuck Sutton.

The enigmatic artist hosted a website with a countdown leading up to this track release, which has been reset and is now counting down to what's assumed to be a track called "Be Mine."

Falling is the initial spark. When the two right people meet there is an undeniable force, a mysterious catalyst drawing them together. Whether a skittish glance across a room, a shared recognition of a special moment, or an inexplicable attraction, it’s obvious that this moment was always meant to happen. Nothing could have held these two bodies from the precipice of a cliff, sheltering them from the fall into ensuing beauty, agony, pleasure and envelopment. There is nothing deliberate about this plunge; neither person has any choice. For better or worse, they’re together until the end of this journey. 

This is is the beginning of another love story, specifically my love story.” - VALENTINE 

VALENTINE returns to his bouncy future bass style on “Falling,” incorporating playful mallet arpeggios and wide synth chords alongside Chuck Sutton’s textured vocals. He drops the track with heavy bass, a grainy lead, and tight drum fills, leading up to a flute-filled interlude with more vocals. VALENTINE breaks it down a second time and blasts us with his signature whipping future bass chords, hard kicks, and twinkling, robotic synths. This one comes via Majestic Casual Records. Enjoy!

kanye west

Kanye West has the public eye on him more so than usual lately. Just this month, we’ve watched Kanye’s interview with Charlemagne Tha God, received his collaboration with Travis Scott and Lil Uzi Vert, and witnessed a wide variety of reactions to his recent controversial tweets and his unfortunate views on slavery. In April, Kanye announced five upcoming albums including his solo album, his collaboration with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghost, and albums for Nas, Pusha T, and Teyana Taylor.

Today Kanye posted a video of him working on new music, his laptop and keyboard set in front the backdrop of whiteboards with the tracklists from each of these upcoming albums. While many are incomplete, this gives us our first look into each of these albums and builds the anticipation further, though all of these releases are right around the corner. Each of these tracklists are short, spanning only 7-8 tracks a piece.

We can expect Pusha T’s album May 25, Kanye’s solo album June 1, his Kids See Ghost collaboration June 8, Nas’ full-length June 15, and Teyana Taylor’s on June 22. Kanye has undoubtedly been hard at work on these new releases, but he’s bound to have plenty of tricks up his sleeves. Check out the tracklist video below, stayed tuned for more, and enjoy!
