Dennis Sheperd – “In Your Hands”
Dennis Sheperd gives summer the most righteous of send-offs with his newest single “In Your Hands”. Dennis has teamed up with George Jema & Eric Lumiere for the release. Verse through chorus, Eric weighs in with a song that contemplates destiny, faith in others, and the indelible mark left by love’s last kiss. His unmistakable, unforgettable tones go straight to the thematic heart, while his lyrics connect over land, sea, and sky. Musically, Dennis and George set blueprints aside to swing an idiosyncratically distinctive staggered riff across the production’s biggest moments. Stepping its synth melodies down before they pirouette back up to meet Eric’s falsetto moments.

PEACE MAKER! – “HCQ”
Portugal-based producer PEACE MAKER! returns to Insomniac’s IN / ROTATION imprint with his latest single, “HCQ.” The track portrays the hope and suffering that HCQ (also known as Hydroxychloroquine) brought, through a melodic, heavy, and hypnotizing sound. A shuffling rhythm is the first element to break the skin before he starts to administer a potent dose of scratch samples and moody padlines streaming beneath reverberating vocalizations that echo out into the void. Once the groove starts to fully circulate in the bloodstream, the impossibly bouncy bassline starts to run its course through chopped vox, nutty sample work, crisp claps, and carefully plotted backspins.
Ekelle – “Dropped”
Toronto multi-genre artist and songwriter Ekelle rhymes about what she knows best, her real-life experiences! Her newest single, “Dropped,” is based on Ekelle’s true story of her 2015 false arrest under suspicion of drug trafficking. Not wanting this sudden roadblock to stop her momentum, she pushed herself to keep putting out music. After the enormous weight was lifted from her shoulders, she took this as an opportunity to be more honest and intentional with her craft. She is sharing moments and stories she would have normally kept to herself in the past. The new song is a look deep into the soul of Ekelle.
Blonde Maze – “To The Moon”
Blonde Maze has produced another mesmerizing track. “To The Moon”. This release brings us into nature’s ear through the eyes, ears, and heart of the artist herself. The single builds a quaint atmosphere with its whimsical notes and mellow tones. Reminiscent of sounds on a summer night, the addition of cymbals creates a majestic air as crisp as the night sky. Just like in her previous releases, Blonde Maze’s chill persona yet again translates beautifully through her artistry.
