PREMIERE | Talented Teenager Knapsack Makes TSIS Debut On Impressive Genre-Blending EP 'futura'


Today we have the pleasure of introducing a talented young artist called Knapsack to the site with a premiere we’ve been excited about. The 17-year-old artist has delivered an impressive new 7-track EP titled futura and we’re loving it. 

“I aim to experiment and sculpt a blend of pop and electronic music while enjoying the influence of many genres unique to the internet age.” - Knapsack

Gabriel O’Leary, aka Knapsack, has a background in classical piano and this is apparent with his knack for melodic arrangement throughout the project. Knapsack infuses various genres in his music showing off his forward-thinking production skills alongside his singing and songwriting making for a unique combination we’re pleased to be introducing to TSIS. Stay tuned for more from Knapsack and enjoy!

PREMIERE | VIRTU Debuts His Own Vocals On Hybrid Future Bass Song "Quiet Lies"


Today rising artist VIRTU has linked up with us for a special premiere of his latest single “Quiet Lies” showing a new step in his career. This marks the first time VIRTU sings on one of his own songs and does not disappoint.

"This was first song I decided to put my own vocals on, and has been in the works for a long time. It's about the unsaid issues in a relationship as it's slowly dissolving. Sometimes we would rather live in comfortable deception than face the truth." - VIRTU 

This new single “Quiet Lies” comes with a relatable message across his touching vocals, but also showcases his production versatility in the best of ways. Here he layers melodic, uplifting synths with a hybrid style blending future bass with some heavier elements like dub. This comes as the third single off his Metamorphosis EP. Enjoy!
