Panama Shares Impressive ‘Hope For Something’ EP Via Future Classic

Panama Hope For Something

If Panama isn’t on your radar yet, now is definitely the time to add him to your list. The impressive synthpop project is manned solely by producer and vocalist Jarrah McCleary, a masterful artist who’s been creating as Panama since 2010. This week the Australia-based producer shared his Hope For Something EP, a dreamy, synth-driven offering perfect for the first official few days of summer.

Hope For Something exudes a light-hearted, upbeat vibe despite some of the heavy themes it deals with lyrically. The entire EP is wrought with lush synth melodies, smooth vocals and crisp percussion. Some standouts include “I Watched You Slip,” a relaxed funk-infused track, and “The Highs,” with its compelling piano melodies and lower-frequency synth breakdowns. From start to finish the EP is a tranquil ride that showcases the many talents of McCleary. Stream Hope For Something, out now via Future Classic, below and enjoy!

[PREMIERE] Rising Producer Xan Griffin Makes TSIS Debut With Chill New Single “Cancer” Feat. Emilia Ali

Xan Griffin Cancer art

California-born producer Xan Griffin has been on the come up for about a year now. The young producer has added his melodic dubstep touch to remixes for everyone from Illenium to The Chainsmokers, and more recently began dropping compelling originals that have solidified his place as a rising artist in the electronic realm. Today we’re excited to be premiering Xan Griffin’s latest single and his debut track on TSIS, “Cancer” feat. Emilia Ali.   

“I based the song off of the character of a cancer of course. It is a water sign meaning very into their feelings and intimate. The song is so much different from others I have made because it is a major mood change from raging synths and huge build ups to an intimate sensual track that represents this water sign.” – Xan Griffin 

“Cancer” is certainly a softer offering than the artist’s former tracks, showcasing the producer’s range in style as the second single off his ongoing Zodiac project. At the impressive young age of just 17 years old, Griffin captures an emotional complexity in this song beyond his years. A soft vocal melody, dreamy synths, piano keys and a slow, subtle beat lend themselves to the production. These elements coupled with Ali’s breathy, smooth vocals create an appreciated sensual mood to the track. Stream the single below and enjoy!

Daft Punk Releases Infectious New Single “Overnight” With Rising Australian Group Parcels

Daft Punk Parcels Overnight

It’s been a minute since we’ve seen new music from legendary duo Daft Punk. Although 2017 has brought their first live performance in years at the Grammys and a co-production spot on Arcade Fire’s “Everything Now,” we haven’t heard that signature Daft Punk disco sound in a while – that is, until today. They teamed up with Parcels, a rising group from Australia, to release “Overnight,” an intoxicating new single produced by Daft Punk with Parcels helping in co-production and co-writing.

The result is a bubbly, funky tune guaranteed to get you moving. “Overnight” definitely has a nostalgic feel to it with its old school synths, light guitar melody and percussion style, yet the production is crisp and forward-thinking at the same time. The vocals are silky smooth and the overall sound of the track brings you back in the best of ways. Check out “Overnight” below and enjoy!
