Will Atkinson – ‘Last King Of Scotland’
The most anticipated debut artist album of 2020 has arrived, as genius Scottish producer Will Atkinson delivers a seventeen-track LP that’s nothing less than a masterpiece. A body of music that seamlessly fuses trance, techno and drum n’ bass with progressive and poetry, ambient and acid and harmony and hard dance, it immediately vies for the tag of ‘timeless’. The ‘Last King Of Scotland’ is a musical journey like no other, but also an intoxicating and often-hypnotic collection, which is a musical narration of Will’s own path. That of a patriotic, electronic music loving boy growing up in a far-flung corner before moving on, out and up to global recognition.
Ilan Bluestone – ‘Paid For Love (feat. God Sedgwick)’
“‘Paid For Love‘ is the first track I’ve written where I’ve had a hand in writing the lyrics. The song is about a personal experience I had in a relationship, and I feel like these lyrics speak to people who may have gone through similar experiences. I’ve felt such a strong connection with fans at my shows when they’ve been singing the words back to me. I wanted a vocal in the style of Depeche Mode, and Gid Sedgwick delivered!”— Ilan Bluestone

Zack Martino – ‘Reflections’
“‘The inspiration behind this EP [‘Reflections’] started on tour last year. This was the first time in my life that I was away from home for weeks on end and it filled me with a bunch of emotions. I fell in love, experienced heartbreak, was overwhelmed and at times felt alone. But at the same time, it was the best year of my life. I got to travel, see the world and meet so many amazing people along the way. My life was going so fast and I was getting lost. During the making of this EP, I had to take a step back and really reflect on what was going on in my life. It felt so surreal that I’m living this crazy dream of mine, but this is only the beginning.”— Zack Martino

Cosmo’s Midnight – ‘A Million Times (HONNE Remix)’
“For our remix of ‘A Million Times‘ we decided to completely flip it. We wanted to bring out more of the emotive elements of the lyrics by re-harmonising with picked clean electric guitars and soaring synths. We liked the contrast of having all this set against the backdrop of the relentless straight 808 beat. It was a lot of fun working on it and we hope to finally meet the guys next time we’re in Australia.”— HONNE

Pat Reilly – ‘Prince of the Night’
“I’m taking my personal journey and smashing it against a darker side of me. I’ve lived in a much more colorful place in the past because I had enough distraction to keep me there. ‘Prince of the Night‘ is a release from all the pain I’ve been holding onto, that I wasn’t even conscious of prior, because I could distract myself with work, people, strangers, and my ambition.”— Pat Reilly
Ginesse – ‘Somewhere To Die’
‘Somewhere To Die’ is Ginesse’s first release this year and will consist of 5 brand new singles created with her long-time collaborator, producer Matias Mora.
