"Love Won't Save Us Today"
"Love Won't Save Us Today", my newest song, is one of the most intimate songs I have ever written. This song was created after the murder of my beloved, Philip, by his ex-boyfriend. The lyrics capture what I was trying to explain to myself after this event. I was unable to function. I was no longer able to think coherently. I didn't know how to react to the world around me since it all felt too much for me. This song is somewhat nihilistic in that it tells me that I shouldn't be conscious of the world around me, that it doesn't matter, yet things should matter, and the world around me should matter as well. At the time, I couldn't see how wonderful the world could be, but I gradually rediscovered that, sure, the world can be beautiful. This dream pop single is about seeing a world that is too much, too loud, and too intense. I had to withdraw from the world around me. In a society where we are all taught that more is what we need, I believe that we may all experience this sense, probably more than we would want to admit. After my TBI (traumatic brain injury), I had to relearn every skill I now have. I have to fight to get what I have. I had to relearn writing, math, and other skills like music, mixing, and photography. Thank you for listening to my music. Things to matter, and these songs matter. - Chris Twist (Spotify)
The Absence of Doors
Developing a thrilling combination of Synthwave + Trance + Progressive House SonikBuster's signature sound is at the intersection where the chill night driving elements of cyberpunk lore, the motivating energy of dance music, and the playful nostalgia of game audio collide. -SonikBuster The Absence of Doors is an amazing album. The unique sound style is unlike anything you will hear out right now. Connecting on a spiritual, technological, and emotional level of sound design. Each track is unique, containing its own character, personality, a puzzle, with a solution, you feel it through every moving piece until it is complete. - Robert Turner, Electrofans
"Say Yeah", the new release by Isabella Armina
What made you decide to pursue a career in entertainment? I have always known that I wanted to be, and honestly was, an artist since I was a child. I became enamored with and experimented with film, acting, music and then it just grew into more avenues of entertainment as I developed and I started doing comedy, skits, content and everything else.
mysoundMusic is Groovin' to these Artist
I love what I do... listening and sharing talented artists, creating and sharing what they love to do. Music itself is one of the more inspiring things in life because it is created using emotion and often performed with the same emotion which triggers emotions in other people and can make people feel a certain way. - theodysseyonline

With a sound that journeys through smooth jazz, vibrant EDM, and downtempo grooves, Stefano’s music is a world unto itself. - BROKEN 8 RECORDS
Darkside Drive creates a distinct take on 80’s goth and darkwave music.
From the ashes of bands forced off the road during lockdown, three musicians from across the country united to create a spark of an idea that lit the fire that was to become Darkside Drive, the flames of which burn bright in their creativity. The band has created a distinct take on 80’s music, goth and darkwave. The songs are a poignant look behind the curtain of suburbia and delve into the darker side of life. The band is busy writing and releasing new material, and looking to go on tour towards the end of the year. Vocalist, Steve Burden, took the time to answer our questions.
Suburban Sound Machine
Suburban Sound Machine has emerged from a group of exasperated musicians, locked in their homes, who needed to get their musical mojo’s back. Completely remote, due to lockdown restrictions, they recorded and released their first collection of songs in May of 2021. Now the band is able to finally get together in person, they are jamming the songs, preparing to go on tour and writing new material. The band has an unashamedly retro style that is deliberately multi genre, reflecting the diverse musical interests of its members. The songs take in influences such as David Bowie, Roxy Music, The Kinks, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Blur and even a touch of Miles Davis. The songs have poignant lyrics, taking an amusing, affectionate and sometimes melancholy look at middle class, middle English life. The first new single The Boy From Croydon came out in January, and now Perfect Life is out! At least 2 more singles in the pipeline...
