RH2 - Like Nobody's Around
Artist or Band Name: 
RH2

Dylan Jackson Scott is a man on a journey. His band, RH2 is music with a rare sort of honesty and ambition. “I want people to know that I care about them,” says Dylan, plainly. “For me it’s musical and cultural. I don’t want to make a difference for the sake of shaping culture, I want to do it because it’s desperate for oxygen.” While his past endeavors, including New Jersey’s Young Rising Sons and Los Angeles-based Rad Horror, created their own sonic ripples and racked up Spotify plays, now with songs like the confessional “In My Head”, RH2 is the sound of an artist coming into his own.

“This is the first time I’ve felt that I could say everything I wanted to and needed to say as a person and a songwriter,” Dylan admits. “The songs are my truth without any sort of apology.” Also known as a songwriter and producer for the likes of Halsey and many others, Dylan and RH2 is intent on crafting anthems and sharing insight to the modern generation.

“I’m inspired by people like Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain, Lou Reed and more recent artists like, Kanye West and Jay- Z,” says Dylan. “I’m inspired by art, by literature, and by people I heavily identify with. The ones who struggled with mental illness and a troubled youth, but were incredibly prolific and created great art in spite of themselves and the harsh limitations they faced along the way. I know I have something to say, but I want it to be from my perspective, rolling off of my own tongue. RH2 is my vehicle for that.”

Music Submission, Eli Wesse

Artist or Band Name: 
Eli Wesse

Elijah Wesse was born in Ypsilanti, MI at St. Joes Hospital on March 29, 1996. He spent most of his time growing up with his four sisters and mother in Southeast Michigan and later moved to the east coast at 16. Eli’s parents were both passionate musicians. They played and exposed Eli to music at an early age.

Eli would later return to Michigan at age 19. In fall 2016, Eli met Billboard-charting producer Arjun Singh and began to start taking music more serious. Together they would work to produce many records, including the singles “Small Talk” and “CICI”. It was during this time that Eli was arrested for gun-related charges and served two years in MDOC between 2017-2019. 

After being released, Eli touched down in Los Angeles, where he became a member of Savage Squad Records. He then re-released CICI garnering notable attention of many. As the record began to turn heads, Eli went on to work with notable creatives, including Glo Gang artist Tadoe, the Bachelorette’s Grant Kemp and others while putting together his debut project, “TILL FAME DO US PART”. The EP was officially released February 22nd, 2020.

Music Submission, Davor Jordanovski

Davor Jordanovski
Artist or Band Name: 
Davor Jordanovski

Davor Jordanovski has always known music would be his life; indeed, from his earliest recollection, it was his only choice. Fortunately, he was able to seriously pursue this path at the University of Music Arts (Saints Kiril & Metodij University) in Skopje. And while most musicians learn their trade by first listening to rock’n’roll records and then joining rock bands, DAVOR honed his already impressive skills in a full-blown 150-piece symphonic orchestra. By the time he was in his teens, he was already the featured keyboard player with Macedonian National TV network’s Big Band Orchestra, writing, arranging, performing and playing for some of the biggest and best-known musical acts in the country. This exceptional opportunity was not wasted on this extraordinary musician who was born with a depth of talent far beyond the range of many other artists.

DAVOR’s musical training was traditional: classical followed by pop and jazz, then branching out into film, mood, jazz fusion, ambient, dance, groove, symphonic, contemporary jazz and R&B. Now adeptly accomplished in all musical genres, DAVOR’s original compositions and arrangements display a rich level of sophistication while remaining simply powerful — yet never powerfully simplistic — and often served with wit and humour, as befitting the artist himself.

DAVOR grew up in Macedonia and has since made Canada his home, though he did spend a few years in Libya when he was a young child. The early impressions of living in a desert culture stayed with him as he grew and studied in his hometown of Skopje, where he was influenced by music from the Balkans and surrounding European regions. The synthesis of musical cultures has evolved into a unique style of world fusion, which successfully unifies an infinite range of disparate and varied sounds, instruments, arrangements and sensibilities.

Music Submission, She Killed In Ecstasy

She Killed In Ecstasy
Artist or Band Name: 
She Killed In Ecstasy

She Killed In Ecstasy is rumored to be a clandestine experimental electronic project, solely comprised of screenwriter and composer/producer Clay Smith. Drawing inspiration from all that is old school punk, 70’s funk, 80’s synth pop, vintage psychedelia, obscure cult films and B-movies; he’s hopelessly condemned to a tireless existence of corrupting unsuspecting minds with a relentless onslaught of sweet, soothing, schizophrenic mood music.

Please excuse the carnage.

David Naethan is releasing his 2nd song on March 28, 2020. Paying homage to one of his favorites David recorded this cover, "I'm Not Moving," by Phil Collins. Though he implemented a sound of today in this recording he kept it close to the original feel of the song to keep the integrity and emotion behind it. David is in the process of releasing more original recordings in the near future. However, he doesn't want to move forward without bringing this song "I'm Not Moving" back to the ears of the multitude.

Song won't be on commercial sites until the release date.

South The Anatomy of a Car-Crash

NEW SINGLE: ‘SOUTH’

RELEASE DATE – 13/03/2020

LISTEN HERE // WATCH HERE

Arliston return with their first single of 2020 which was written while on tour in Canada. The song had the working title of ‘Stranger Things’ until the last days of mixing, as the hazy, crepuscular riff that the song is built around possesses an inescapable 80’s nostalgia. The clean minimal choruses are balanced beautifully between the chaotic downbeat of the verse, creating something unusual but brilliantly compelling.

“The band's playfully experimental take on digital pop is reaping dividends, with the three-piece charging into unknown climes.”– Clash 

Over the years, Arliston have had continued support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Clash, KALTBLUT, Amazing Radio, The 405 and Resonance FM who have championed the distinctive dark-wave sound with comparisons made with The National and Bon Iver. Alongside top engineer, Darren Jones and long-time collaborator Danny Monk, ‘South’ keeps to Arliston’s melancholy style with its clean reverb guitar line, effortless vocals and crisp drumbeat.

This meaning of the newest single ‘South’ centres around the question - At what point is there too much layered scar tissue to keep moving forwards in a relationship? Lots of little individually insignificant actions, adding up to total catastrophe.

“It’s a melancholy boiling pot, one reminiscent of Editors meets The National with a dash of something more contemporary thrown in for good measure.” – One Stop Record Shop

The video shows a couple taking turns alternately damaging, then repairing a hapless vehicle. The damage: reckless and permanent, and the repair: inadequate and makeshift. Continuing, until the car is a visible wreck. Driving forward seems like a constructive step, but the vehicle, the relationship, the thing they’re both sitting in has sustained too much damage, so crashes spectacularly and terminally. Any one of these things in isolation could have been absorbed or tolerated, but when they occur with the memory of previous transgressions raging away in the background it becomes too much. Everything goes ‘South’.

Each time Arliston release a song, it seems on foot gets planted deeper in the ambient, dark-indie sensibility they have become known for, while the other finds ever new ground to mix their growing palate with. This time referencing the mainstream-pop world with a nod to the powerfully minimal bass drops in Billie Ellish’s ‘When the Party’s Over’. Look out for new material and shows coming soon in 2020.
