Ed Kowalczyk Re-records Vocals For “Lightning Crashes” Remix

Canadian DJ Avira has built up a reputation in recent years for remixing classic songs. Up next on his agenda is a remix of an alt classic from Live. "Lightning Crashes" was one of the biggest songs of the 90s and it's been reborn as an EDM song. Listen: Lightning Crashes Remix I wasn't sure what to expect when I first read about the project. And I must admit I wasn't sure what to think after my first listen. But I went into the experience with an open mind. Live was (is) a huge part of my musical DNA. Ultimately I approve and after a few more times on repeat, I can't stop listening. AVIRA has taken the original and effectively paid tribute while instilling a modern sensibility.

A Chat With The Young Legend, MAYKO.

"...the whole purpose of music, in my opinion, is to transport people into a place, into a feeling..." If there is any name you need to remember in 2022, it's Mayko's. You're certainly going to be seeing it everywhere soon.  You may already be familiar with Mayko through his release with Sable Valley, or perhaps you remember him from a vibe.digital podcast, or stumbled upon him another way. (If not, you can get introduced to Mayko in our “Release Radar’s Greatest Hits, Volume 3”).  Perhaps the best way to get to know him is through his own words, though, right?  Well, we were lucky enough to be able to interview Mayko about his art and artistry, what he’s learned on his journey so far–as well as what’s coming next for ‘The Young Legend’.   For y...

Hikikomori by Nick Neutronz: a Poignant Digital Soundscape for a Future None of Us Imagined.

Well, it's not the future any of us saw coming--except, perhaps, for Nick Neutronz, through his dark & enchanting track, "Hikikomori". First released on Audius on January 4th, the track is now available for streaming everywhere. "Hikikomori" is more than just a New Year's single: it is a journey into another world, one that eerily mirrors our own. "In February of 2019 I did a dive into "Hikikomori". A year and some change later, and we were all driven inside with no sense of when we'd be outside again. This track was a fantasy, a future urban landscape where all of us were stuck to our screen, where the outside world was a hostile hustle of scarcit...
