WHIPPED CREAM has arrived on the scene in 2022 with her first original of the year — and she invited some rather iconic friends to the party — Big Freedia, Moore Kismet and UNIIQU3.

The collaborative single “HOLD UP” doubles as a club banger and empowering anthem, celebrating black sheep everywhere with fierce energy and bounce. The team up of these bold artists and personalities is beautifully executed, with intent to encourage anyone who may hear the collab to be themselves unapologetically.

WHIPPED CREAM shares, “‘HOLD UP’ is a song created for the people who have never seemingly fit in. For those who have had to fight like hell to simply BE WHO THEY ARE.”

“Once I was done with the beat, I wanted to bring on a variety of artists that have really inspired me to keep going as my true self and have them lay their … Read more

Earlier today (January 28), DSP Media announced the K-pop act’s disbandment in a statement to South Korean news outlet SPOTV News. It comes just under a year after several members of the group were accused of allegedly bullying former member Lee Hyun-joo.

Several members of APRIL, including Naeun, Jinsol and Chaewon, have personally denied the allegations made against them by Lee. Additionally, DSP Media also had taken legal action against Lee and her family for defamation at the time.

“After a long period of discussion and debate, our agency and the APRIL members decided to have the group disband and go their separate ways,” DSP said, as translated by Soompi. “We ask that you give lots of support and interest to the six … Read more

Claptone is a man in no need of an introduction. He’s already left a permanent legacy in the dance music world with his unbridled imagination and uncanny ability to push the creative boundaries of both house music and live events. If you’ve ever seen him live or attended one of his Masquerade events, you’ll know what I mean.

Claptone is still fresh off of releasing his critically acclaimed album ‘Closer‘, released in November 2021, which featured timeless vocalists like Seal and Barry Manilow along with fresh-faced acts like James Vincent McMorrow and Mansionair. He recently enlisted the Queen of Deep House, Nora En Pure, to remix his single “Queen Of Ice“, featuring the beautiful vocals of Dizzy, that was enthralling through and through.

Now, Claptone has tapped legendary UK duo Pet Shop Boys to provide their take on “Queen Of IceRead more

Grey Code has always been known for his diversity in sound, pretty much as soon as he hit the scene. With clean synths, cleaner breaks and overall work that reads more like high concept art than dancefloor D&B. It’s no wonder he’s released on so many premier labels since his first releases in 2017. Now with almost everything he does being scoffed up by Metalheadz, the continuation of the sonic journey that started with his Reprieve and Heilos EPs is almost here in the massive Renewal album, due out this Friday, January 28, could really only be on the mega-imprint.

A sonic journey in itself, Renewal is both a departure for Grey Code and right down the line of what fans love about him. Somehow celestial, cinematic and heavy all at once, the new album is as emotionally complicated as it is musically. Inspired, as most musicians have been these … Read more
